Kalyn receives Kin Canada’s highest honour Dave Kalyn, of Shellbrook, was awarded with the highest honour Kin Canada at a surprise event in his honour Saturday night at the Shellbrook Legion Hall. Kalyn, a member of the Shellbrook Kinsmen Club for the past 25 years was awarded a Kinsmen Life Membership at the event. Unlike many “surprise” gatherings, Kalyn was completely blind sided, first by the party and then upon receiving the award. “It meant the world. I’m still overwhelmed,” said Kalyn. “I don’t know why I’m recognized because there have been so many guys that were a part of the club and accomplished a lot of great things.” The sense of duty that brought him to the event Saturday night was part of what led his fellow Kin to nominate him for the award. He received a call, while entertaining company, to help tend bar at a Kinsmen event that was short of staff. He agreed to take a short shift to help his friends and fellow Kinsmen out. “How do you say no to those guys?” said Kalyn, during an interview following the event. When he arrived, he was shocked to find out that there was no need for bartenders and that the party was in fact for him. The program, emceed by long time Kinsmen members Grant Hladun and Paul Bourgeault, was kept light with the occasional verbal jab thrown Kalyn’s way while outlining his many accomplishments with the club.

Lane accepts judge post Former Shellbrook lawyer Bob Lane, Q.C., has been appointed as a judge of the Provincial Court for La Ronge. “The appointment of Judge Lane will enhance the judicial system in the northern part of our province,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said. “Judge Lane’s distinguished career, both as a prosecutor and defence lawyer provides him with a unique perspective in this new role.” Judge Lane graduated from the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan in 1979 and was called to the Bar in 1980. In 1983, he became managing partner in the Bradley and Lane law firm in Shellbrook.

He left private practice in 2004 to join the Public Prosecutions Division of the Ministry of Justice as a Senior Crown Prosecutor, before being appointed Regional Crown Prosecutor. Over the past 33 years, Judge Lane’s legal career has focused on criminal law in central and northern Saskatchewan. He has also participated in various types of civil litigation, including family law and municipal law. Throughout his career, he has been a member of the Saskatchewan Trial Lawyers Association and continues to take many courses in Continuing Legal Education. Judge Lane replaces Judge Felicia Daunt, who is transferring to the Provincial Court in Prince Albert.

Legion to host open house The Shellbrook branch of the Royal Canadian Legion is taking a different approach to their annual wreath fund raiser for the Legion Poppy Fund. Due to low membership and an ever shrinking number of able bodied members the club has opted to invite donors in rather than pound the pavement in search of donations. Leading up Remembrance Day, the club usually hits the streets to sell the wreaths to be placed at the annual November 11 service. This year the club will be hosting an open house at the Shellbrook Legion Hall October 27-28 where the public can go and

buy their wreaths and enjoy refreshments. Legion Vice President Henri Dagenais said that the shift was necessary to make use of the volunteers they have while not overburdening them. “We don’t have the personnel anymore. We don’t have the people. We just thought that for this year we would get the people to come to us,” said Dagenais, adding that this way people won’t feel pressured to buy one if they aren’t interested. Funds raised through the sale of wreaths go to the Legion Poppy fund as well as funding prizes for the annual Remembrance Day Poem, Poster and Essay Contest.

National Seniors Day Our government established National Seniors Day in 2010 to recognize the contributions made by seniors in their communities, workplaces and in society itself. We celebrate National Seniors Day on October 1st of each year. October is also Seniors’ Month in Saskatchewan. “The Government of Canada is proud to pay tribute to seniors on this day and is committed to supporting their well-being,” said the Honourable Alice Wong, Minister of State (Seniors), “We believe the well-being of seniors depends on their staying active, staying engaged and staying informed.” Though our government is proud to have created and supported National Seniors Day, please be assured that we realize that a day celebrating the contributions of our seniors is no substitute for concrete and positive action in support of seniors. That is why we have been very active in supporting seniors through a number of initiatives. These initiatives include

The GIS improves the financial security and well-being of more than 680,000 seniors across Canada.

Seniors have benefitted from $2.5 billion in extra tax relief this year alone through measures such as pension-income splitting and increasing the Age Credit. $400 million has been allocated, over the next two years, to the construction of housing for seniors, providing suitable accommodation for low-income seniors.

submitted to KinCanada. A club can only present one life membership every two years. Kalyn’s was the first for the Shellbrook Club. Long time Kinsmen, Robert Chuback spearheaded the movement to make Kalyn Shellbrook’s first Life Member. He, along with Bourgeault and Hladun compiled the application for the award which was ultimately approved by KinCanada. As co-owner of E&B Lumber he not only contributed his time to projects but was also able to drastically reduce costs through price reductions and outright donation of materials. Through the years, Kalyn has fi lled roles as club vice president, treasurer, bulletin editor, secretary and director. One of the larger achievements during Kalyn’s tenure was sticking it out when the club was down to just three members. He said there were thoughts of disbanding or joining the now defunct Elks Lodge but new members came along and rejuvenated club and its exist-

ing membership. Today the club has 10 members on its roster. Kalyn attended his first meeting January 14, 1987 at the recommendation of a then member Bruce Moe and was hooked on “serving the community’s greatest need” ever since. “I thought it was just awesome,” said Kalyn. He found himself in his element and enjoyed the camaraderie as a newcomer to town. The national club formerly had a rule that Kinsmen

would graduate out of their respective clubs at 40 years of age. The rule was eventually eliminated after clubs across the country saw serious decline. Kin Zone D Deputy Governor Sharleen Montague was also on hand to bring greetings on behalf of Kin Governor Sandi Barrie. The evening was rounded out by a slides how of Kalyn’s Kinsmen career, compiled by his daughter Kelsey Kalyn, and a banquet sponsored by the Shellbrook Kinsmen Club.

Minimum wage all sizzle and no steak Saskatchewan's recently announced hike in minimum wage has far more to do with perception than it does with putting more money into the hands of low income earners. With news of Alberta's minimum wage sliding out of last place past Saskatchewan's last month the NDP hit the media with calls for the Sask Party government to increase minimum wage and index it with the cost of living. The Sask Party responded with an increase from $9.50 to $10 hourly. Who wants to be in last place for anything, right? With the move, set to take place December 1, Saskatchewan moved passed Alberta and BRAD Quebec at $9.75 and $9.90, reDUPUIS spectively, while Nunavut sits at the top of the heap at $11. ~ Though this is feel good news News for some, it mostly amounts to window dressing and a gag. It looks good to the general public while quieting the NDP on this particular topic. The reality is that the bulk of minimum wage earners in the province aren't trying to feed their families but are simply trying to earn enough money to pay for a car. If they want to help out adults earning minimum wage, give them further tax credits. Saskatchewan has one of the highest personal exemptions in the country at $14,942, meaning that residents don't pay provincial income tax on the first $14,942 they earn. That figure could be higher if it were really meant to help low income earners make a better life for themselves. At the new minimum wage, a full time salary equates to $20,800. Having a higher threshold sounds better than paying more while workers pay more taxes. Meanwhile, employers that pay anywhere close to minimum wage will see their staffing costs increase by 5 per cent December 1. The increase will arguably put upward pressure on all hourly wages, resulting in increased costs on all consumer goods. A further tax break would have been further reaching and more effective without causing any undue hardship to business. A two tiered approach is employed in other provinces to ensure that employers aren't over burdened with wages while hiring high school students. In Ontario, minimum wage is $10.25, however that is lowered to $9.60 for students under 18 working 28 hours or less a week. Minimum wage for liquor servers is $8.90, due to their ability to earn gratuities. In the end, the market will always dictate the rise and fall of salaries without government intervention. When there is a shortage of labour, which we apparently have in this province, wages have to rise in order to attract qualified workers. The government made a reactive decision that will have more of an effect on kids earning bumming around money than it will for workers trying to put food on the table for their families.

This “contraption” as we affectionately referred to it was called a snow plane. It was used by Dr. Harry Coffyne and the RCMP to get to places they could not get to with vehicles. It is not known if Dr. Coffyne got it from somewhere or if the people in town got together and built it for him. My father (Bert Loth) drove it in the winter of 1942 and had the greatest respect for Dr. Coffyne , who would never refuse a call and would go no matter what time it was or how bad the weather. They had a close call one night when they almost had to deliver a baby, but made it to the hospital with 10 minutes to spare. Dad joined the army in 1943 and I am not sure what they did after that ,but he always talked proudly about some of the trips they had with the snow plane. Submitted by Anita Canaday-Loth

Rural Sask overlooked by Sask Party government

Income inequality growing Dear editor, Canadians are feeling the pinch. Families are earning less and inflation is increasing the cost of everyday essentials. Students are grappling with rising tuition rates and have fewer opportunities for employment when they graduate. Youth unemployment is at a historic high and student employment is at record lows. As Canadians adjust to these economic realities, our debtto-income ratio has grown to 152%, much higher than the United States, and entire generations of Canadians have little or no savings. Most of us recognize that income inequality is a growing issue that is at the heart of these challenges. That is why the Liberal Party held a debate in Parliament on addressing income inequality and put forward several practical steps we can take immediately to reduce it. Specifically, we are calling on the government to: Continued on page 6

Shellbrook Chronicle Polling Question


Editor: I read, ‘Internet woes loud wake-up call’, by Murray Mandryk, TheStarPhoenix September 26, 2012. (http://www. ll/7299617/story.html) Murray Mandryk did an excellent job of depicting the Sask Party govt.’s behavior which obviously discriminates against our rural life style and culture. As early as June , 2009 we saw then Justice Minister Don Morgan promising the Harper govt. that Sask. will “accept a (gun owner) licensing regime” contained within the much hated Liberals’ Bill C-68. (1) This step was in stark contrast to previous Sask govts. “who opted out of the administration of the program altogether.” These former governments felt, “if we did not take action on behalf of the people of Saskatchewan who have expressed concerns about the Bill, we would be avoiding our responsibilities.” (2) Rural folks hoped that fair minded urban dwellers,like Mr. Morgan and Premier Wall, would join with them in opposition to Bill C-68. Before being elected, they seemed to understand the problems it caused rural residents. After the vote, they fail to care about how intrusive, abusive and invasive the process of forcing gun owners to license is and that it makes the mere possession of a firearm by responsible Canadians illegal. In addition, there is Premier Wall’s refusal to place a much needed new bridge at Prince Albert, the gateway to the resource laden North and rural heartland. Instead, he opted for a taxpayer funded football stadium in Regina. Yet, our many rural Sask Party MLAs remain silent about this while their leader and his small ruling coalition governs to garner public approval ratings and more votes. Rural folks expect better governance than this. Joe Gingrich Nipawin, Sask

Report from the Legislature

Your Saskatchewan Party government continues working toward keeping another important promise we made during last year’s election campaign: reducing surgical wait times. We learned this week seven out of 10 health regions are within five percent of reaching the goal of reducing wait times for surgery to less than six months. They are: SCOTT MOE • Heartland 100 per cent; ~ • Cypress/Sunrise 99 per cent; Rosthern • Prairie North/Five Hills 98 per cent; Shellbrook • Sun Country 97 per cent; Toll Free: • Prince Albert Parkland 95 per cent; 1-855-793-3422 • Kelsey Trail/Saskatoon 90 per cent; and • Regina Qu’Appelle 81 per cent Since 2007, the number of people waiting more than a year for surgery is down 92 per cent and the number waiting more than six months has dropped 58 per cent. Our government remains committed to reducing the amount of time

for everyone waiting for surgery to no more than three months by the end of 2014.

This year alone, we are investing $2 million in the program. The

Saskatchewan Advantage is about more than just dollars and cents – it is also about supporting society’s most vulnerable people through programs such as this. Throughout our province volunteer groups play an important role. This year, the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority is supporting the great work of these organizations by providing approximately $2.1 million in charitable gaming grants.These grants will support the work of over 1,000 volunteer groups and organizations from across the province. This program provides a grant equal to 25 per cent of the net revenues raised through charitable gaming activities. By working together we will maintain the Saskatchewan Advantage. There is no greater commitment to your country than to serve in the Armed Forces. To honour the sacrifices these heroic men and women have made, SGI is issuing veteran plates for motorcycles and snowmobiles.

Canwood Coffee Row in the park

In order to enjoy the beautiful fall weather and to show appreciation for the hard work of the Canwood Community Pride and Heritage Committee, coffee row was moved across the street to the park on the morning of September 27, 2012. That afternoon, residents of Whispering Pine Place also came down for “coffee in the park” day. The Canwood Community Pride and Heritage Committee paid for coffee from the Canwood Cafe for anyone, providing they had it in the park.

Income equality Continued from page 5 * roll back their recent Employment Insurance Premium hike; * end their punitive new claw-back of Employment Insurance benefits; * make tax credits refundable so that low-income Canadians are not excluded; * adapt the Registered Disability Savings Plan for sufferers of chronic diseases, such as Multiple Sclerosis; and * remove federal interest charges from student loans. What we are asking the government to do is to first of all recognize that this is a problem, not continue to dismiss it. Income inequality is a key issue for Canada. We cannot assume that prosperity will be fairly shared and we cannot take prosperity itself for granted. We have to avoid the mistakes of the extreme right and the extreme left and we have to come up with practical proposals that will make a difference to ordinary people and ensure that our prosperity is fairly, deeply and widely shared. Shared prosperity is what we strive for as a country and ensuring equality of opportunity for all Canadians is at the core of what it means to be a Liberal. Yours sincerely, Bob Rae Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada

Feed costs put future of hog industry in doubt How often of late have we heard the comment somewhere that 'everything is better with bacon'. The more pressing question might be whether we will be able to afford bacon in the future? That might sound like a stretch, but the pork industry at present is under duress. Big Sky Pork in Saskatchewan went through bankruptcy in the past, and it took a deal which saw many creditors, including farmers who sold grain to the large pork producer taking less than owed, to keep the barns open. The bail-out in 2009 was enough to keep Big Sky afloat, but it appears that help wasn't enough and Big Sky is once again in trouble financially. Big Sky is deep in red ink. The company is said to be in debt to the tune of about $75 million. So now Big Sky will go up for sale if the court approves.

With 400 employees, and the majority of Saskatchewan's pork production what becomes of the company will have a great deal to do with whether pigs remain anything but a hobby aspect of farming in this province. This time Big Sky is not alone. Puratone, a major producer in Manitoba, announced recently it CALVIN seeks court protection from creditors under the Companies’ Creditors DANIELS Arrangement Act. ~ The straw to break the industry's back is the current high grain prices, which stands to reason given that feed costs are the larg-

Developing a grain marketing plan BY LEROY BADER

Developing and implementing a sound marketing plan is a key step in helping you make profitable marketing decisions. While it will not guarantee that you always sell a commodity at the top price, it will help you to manage price risk and improve your market returns. Grain and oilseed producers have many marketing choices available to them. These choices include what to grow, and how and where to sell their production through a wide array of pricing and delivery alternatives. Evaluation of these alternatives, as well as the existing market trends and market signals is required in order to make sound marketing decisions. The planning process does require a significant commitment but can re-

sult in greater returns from your farm production. A sound marketing plan should have a number of goals including: • Choosing crops that you believe have the greatest income potential. • Pricing and marketing your grains according to a predetermined plan that considers: (i) Production costs, (ii) The current market trends and (iii) Your cash f low requirements. • Reducing your risk of price erosion from falling market prices. • Reducing your marketing costs by timing grain sales when basis levels are low and • Managing your grain storage and delivery options to maximize returns

A comprehensive marketing plan does require some knowledge of how the futures market operates. You should be aware of the risks involved in futures trading and, if needed, enroll in a training program. Sticking with a preset marketing plan in a disciplined way is a critical part of being successful. By staying in constant touch with the market you will ensure that you have the information needed to take advantage of price rallies. Keep in mind the marketing plan should also be reviewed and revised on a regular basis as supply and demand conditions change. The Farm Business Development Initiative through the Ministry of Agriculture can assist you in developing your marketing plan through printed resources and


funding assistance for training or consulting services. The initiative focuses on adopting or improving progressive management practices in nine key areas of farm business management. Farmers have successfully used the program to assist with training and consulting in key areas such as succession planning, marketing, production economics, financial planning and strategic planning. Other eligible areas include human resources, business structure, environmental strategies and risk assessment. Contact your nearest Ministry of Agriculture Regional office or Agriculture Knowledge Centre at 1-866-4572377 for more information, and to apply for the Farm Business Development initiative as well as other programs and services.

est single input cost in producing pork. This fall has certainly seen grain prices jump. Poor corn crops in the United States, and the new demand of ethanol production is squeezing corn going to livestock. Barley crops in Canada haven't exactly been bumper either, and that means higher feed prices here too. The question is whether you believe grain prices are likely to decline enough over the long term to make largescale pig barns viable. It seems rather unlikely given current trends and the new biofuel initiatives. So the question then becomes how does pork production find profitability in a world of higher grain prices? The answer is not easy but will be essential if we are to enjoy affordable bacon in the future.

Minimum wage going up The minimum wage in Saskatchewan will increase to $10.00 per hour on December 1, 2012, an increase from the current minimum wage of $9.50 per hour. The move follows a commitment by the Government of Saskatchewan to review the hourly minimum wage on a year-toyear basis. The change also results in a corresponding increase to the minimum call-out pay to $30.00. “The contributions of Saskatchewan’s working population are essential to ongoing economic growth and prosperity in the province,”

but wanted to announce the 50 cent per hour increase now to give employers ample time to prepare for the December 1 implementation date. “Since taking office, our government has increased minimum wage from $7.95 to $10.00 an hour,” Morgan said. “That’s an increase of nearly 26 per cent in five years - well ahead of the rate of inflation.” Public consultations on the issue indicated significant support for an increase to the minimum wage. The Minister’s Advisory Committee on labour legislation review overwhelmingly supported an increase.


Buying? Selling? Classifieds Work! 747-2442

Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said. “This increase in minimum wage, together with the significant tax reductions our government has provided to low income earners, means that Saskatchewan will have one of the highest rates of take-home pay in Canada for minimum wage earners.” The increase is part of an overall review of labour relations and workplace safety legislation currently underway. Morgan said the government is still actively considering indexing minimum wage as part of that review,

Consumers advised to take precautions due to beef recall

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Health is reminding consumers to use safe beef handling and cooking practises, in the wake of the recent recall of Alberta beef products by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). The Ministry of Health is aware of 13 reported cases of E.coli infection in Saskatchewan in September; the usual number of cases in that month ranges from zero to four. Public health authorities are investigating these cases and conducting tests to determine whether they are linked to the recall. Laboratory results are expected within the next few days. “People can reduce their risk of E.coli infection by taking very simple, common sense steps,” Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Saqib Shahab said. “Consumers should be vigilant about thorough hand washing when handling or preparing food, and ensure that all meat is cooked thoroughly.”

Symptoms of E.coli infection include severe abdominal pain, watery or bloody diarrhoea, vomiting, nausea, headaches but little or no fever. Symptoms usually appear within three to four days but can occur up to ten days later and last five to ten days. People most at risk of developing serious complications from E.coli are pregnant women, people with compromised immune systems, young children and the elderly. Residents with prolonged symptoms should visit their doctor or an emergency department. Dr. Shahab says people should be aware that restaurant meals as well as home-cooked food could be a potential source of E.coli if food is not handled safely. Restaurant employees and individuals involved with preparing meals for the public are advised to stay home if they are ill and seek medical advice if symptoms are severe.

Shellbrook Chronicle


The Public Health Agency of Canada, Health Canada, CFIA and provincial health ministries continue to monitor the situation, in collaboration with health regions. Meat products covered by the recall should either be returned to the location of purchase or discarded. Members of the public who have health-related questions can call HealthLine at 1-877-800-0002 or visit Updated information on the beef product recall is available at 818275. Information on safe food handling practices is available at interact/index-eng.php.

Thanksgiving is already here! A beautiful long weekend is approaching and then the busy rink schedules begin. Minor Ice Hockey 3 on 3 will begin on Tuesday October 9th. If you have not heard by Monday the 8th on your exact schedule, please contact Sheldon Moe (747-7905). Regular minor hockey practices begin on October 15th. You can find the rec center schedule on our website at Skate club begins on October 10th at 3:30 and Power skating starts on October 12th at 6:30 and for 9 more weeks after that. Again you can find the schedule on the town website. There is a SHA Skills of Gold Hockey Camp being hosted here in Shellbrook on November 10 and 11. If interested, you can register online at The cost is $125 and if you as a parent are interested in taking the free coaching clinic, it will start on Friday, November 9th.

The federal government had released a grant called the Community Rink Affordability Grant. This grant offers $2500 for each ice surface in every facility. I have registered both the skating and curling rink and received money for both. Thank you to the Government of Saskatchewan for allocating some of this money to our facility. Fitness with Leeta began this week. It is never too late to start. Leeta’s classes will be every Tuesday and Thursday from 7:30-8:30pm in the Elementary School. The costs are either $5 drop in or 12 passes for $50 (2 free classes). Please show up slightly before 7:30 if you are new to the group as there is a PAR-Q to sign. If you are curious on what a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) is, go to Don’t forget that Shellbrook Recreation is on Facebook! Add the profile and do not miss another announcement of some-

thing coming up in or around Shellbrook. Weekly Health Tip: Cold and flu season is on its way… if not already here. You heard it growing up and your kids hear it in school; wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap. Any transfer of mucus, spit or even sweat can pass on a cold. So washing your hands and avoiding touching your face can really help you to avoid that bug. Also, if your child is sick, keep them at home. Not only will they get better sooner, they will also have less of a chance of passing on whatever they have caught. Have a great week!

Shellbrook Elementary Principal Dwayne Tournier presents Jacob Feige with Westjet travel voucher. Feige also brought in the highest number of pledges to win a Blackberry Playbook tablet.

Shellbrook Elementary Public School students hit the streets

Students from Shellbrook Elementary Public School got in some physical activity and raised some money for a good cause with their annual walk-a-thon. The school raised more than $13,000 which will go toward a variety of school projects. Though each of the students were rewarded for their efforts their fund raising fell a little bit short of what was needed to cause some discomfort to the school staff. A series of unique incentives were worked into the pro-

gram for overall pledge collection of over $15,000. Pledges of $15,000 would have caused Tournier to wear a dress to school while $17,500 in pledges would have caused Educational Associate Brenda Cromartie to get a make over. More than $20,000 in pledges would have caused the entire staff to camp out on the roof of the school for a night. In the past, the Shellbrook Elementary School Community Council had the long term goal of providing a SmartBoard for each class room in the school. Now the council has com-

Shellbrook Elementary walk-a-thon raises $13,000 mitted to the long term goal of providing an outdoor learning environment for the pre-kindergarten program so some of the funds raised from the walk-a-thon will be going toward that. The top three fund raisers were Jacob Feige, Darla Bruneau and Emmersyn Nahorniak. Feige also won the two Westjet travel vouchers donated by Westjet. Every class room raised more than $1,000 which means they receive either a pizza party or an ice cream party.

Flu clinics set to begin across health region Anyone interested in getting the flu shot will be able to access the influenza vaccine starting Tuesday, October 9, 2012, with 75 clinics offered in locations throughout the Prince Albert Parkland Health Region until the end of November. “Being vaccinated is one

of the most important steps individuals can take to protect themselves against influenza,” said Dr. Khami Chokani, Prince Albert Parkland’s Medical Health Officer. “Don’t be left on the sidelines – get your flu shot to help protect yourself, your family and your community.”

Be on guard in Orange Zone this Thanksgiving

Motorists are reminded to stay alert for potential highway construction as the Thanksgiving long weekend approaches. “It’s important to ensure the people working to build and preserve our transportation network are protected,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Don McMorris said. “When approaching any highway construction or activities, be cautious, alert, obey flag persons and slow to 60 km per hour when passing highway workers and equipment.” New construction activity highlighted for this update period includes a culvert installation under Highway 1 near Wapella, bridge work on Highway 4 near Meadow Lake, work on Highway 6 south of Ceylon, paving on Highway 13 near Arcola, repaving on Highway 40 near Shellbrook, surface repairs on Highway 202 near Tuxford and sealing on Highway 312 between Rosthern and Wakaw. The weekly provincial highway construction up-

date is posted to the Highway Hotline Facebook page at and tweeted @SKGovHwyHotline. Various 2012 construction season project photos can be found at Video of some construction activities can also be found on the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure’s YouTube Channel at http:// Additional travel information about emergency road closures, the status

G4G member attends Prairie region gathering

G Shellbrook Grandmothers for Grandmothers member Nancy Carswell attended the 2nd Biennial Prairie Region Gathering held in Regina on September 28 and 29. The event exceeded its promise of learning, networking, and fun. The Grandmothers Campaign is an initiative of the Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF). Through the Campaign, Canadian Grandmothers and Grandmothers stand in solidarity with African grandmothers who are raising children orphaned by AIDS. SLF Grandmothers Campaign Coordinator Zahra Mohamed spoke of being approached by other countries in the hopes of replicating the uniquely Canadian

Grandmothers Campaign model because of its phenomenal success. Carswell was challenged to pre-select from all the concurrent sessions. She was thrilled that Gail Bowen, a Saskatchewan author, was presenter for Storytelling 101. Carswell said, “While I will use Gail’s storytelling suggestions, I will best remember her belief that the biggest lottery we ever win is where we are born. Both political borders and race are human-made constructs that create walls where only humanity should exist. Storytelling is a powerful way to displace walls with compassion.” Also at the conference, Carswell heard from Grandmothers Advocacy Network

Shellbrook Chronicle


Heart pushing Riders toward playoffs "We're really rollin', now we're on our way!" As the theme song for the Saskatchewan Roughriders goes, the Green and White definitely appear to be rolling after back-to-back home wins over CFL West Division opponents the past two games. In Week 13 the Riders nudged the Calgary Stampeders 30-25 while this past Saturday night in Week 14, Saskatchewan dumped the league's best team, the BC Lions, 27-21 in front of another sellout crowd. With five games to go and firstand second-place within striking distance, the up and down Riders appear ready to make their move and the fans are right there with them on the edge of their seats. It was a very special night at


Voice of The Riders Mosaic Stadium this past game. It was the only regular season night game of the year and the lights at the stadium were already on at the game's 8:10 pm kickoff time. It seems ever since the new sta-

dium plans were announced, fans are eager to soak up every last ounce of Rider Pride there is to savour at home games and at this one there was a lot. Before the game there was a lot of noise about the 'Occupy The Stadium' movement which was supposed to feature 30 or so protesters outside Mosaic Stadium before the game. Initially the group was anti-stadium but then they backed off on their stance. I'm not certain they even knew WHAT they were protesting and the only report of protesters I received was two guys sitting at a cardtable on the practice field with a cheesy sign. Fail. No, the spirit of the Rider Nation was not going to be dampened

Saturday night. Their team led throughout the entire contest and survived a late scare to post the victory and improve to 7-6. Slotback Weston Dressler was the hero of the night scoring two touchdowns just days after attending his grandfather's funeral in the USA. Dressler is going to go down as one of the all-time great Roughriders. Something remarkable has gone on with this football team this year and it's been fascinating to watch. After a 3-0 start they then went 0-5 before rebounding to win four of their past five games. But it's the intensity they've put forth in the past two games which has made us sit up and take notice. They're not winning games with finesse nor are they trying to. They

are physically dominating their opponents, both of whom were ahead of Saskatchewan in the standings. "I told them to play every game like it's their last," Rider coach Corey Chamblin stated when asked what the difference has been lately. It certainly seems to be working. Rider GM Brendan Taman said this week "there's something special" about this team but right now it's tough to put a finger on just what it is. So I asked quarterback Darian Durant after Saturday's game what's unique about this 2012 Roughrider team. "Our heart," Durant answered without hesitation. And that could make things very dangerous for the rest of the CFL the rest of the way.

Don't feel sorry for NHL players Two things are evident in this sorry mess that is the National Hockey League’s lockout of its players. 1. As far as finances go, you don't have to feel sorry for either side; and 2. The vast majority of fans are sick and tired of hearing about negotiations, preferring the “call me when it’s over” approach. This whole squabble is about splitting revenues. Before the Players’ Association contract with the owners expired Sept. 15, players had been receiving 57 per cent of revenues. The owners thought that was too much, considering that revenues in the last couple of years have ballooned to $3.3 million. So the owners offered the players 43 per cent, knowing full well it would spark a revolt, which it did. But it was merely a starting point in negotiations. Eventually, the two sides will settle. Everybody knows that. Neither the owners, nor the players, want to see revenues go down to near zero, which is what will happen if no hockey is played. No tickets will be sold, no parking stalls will be filled, no hot dogs will be eaten or beer consumed, no television contracts will be honoured. Some revenue will still flow in from sales of NHL merchandise because, after all, Christmas is Christmas. But don't feel sorry for the players if they finally settle for 47 per cent, or 48 per

cent, and the owners gleefully walk away with 50-percent-plus of the revenues. While the players deserve to be handsomely paid, considering they are among the best 600 of their craft in the entire world, they make enormous amounts of money, astronomically in excess of an average Joe or Jane. The average NHL player last year made $2.4 million. The average well-paid Canadian working in an office or a factory might pull in $40,000 or $50,000. Some managers might make in the $80,000 to $100,000 range. So the Canadian who has made $40,000 for most of his adult life would have to work for 60 years at that rate to accumulate $2.4 million, the average one-year NHL salary. The stars, who make $5 and $6 million per year, or more, might be asked to play 19 to 22 minutes per game. But an ordinary Canadian would have to work for 100 years at $50,000 a year to make $5 million. So don't feel sorry for the players if they end up the ‘losers’ in this NHL fight. Millions of Canadians would love to ‘lose’ like that. • R.J.

Shellbrook Hospital Auxiliary There were 11 members member at the September 25 Hospital Auxiliary meeting.

Trinia also talked about the art work the residents had made some are on display at the nursing home. The nursing home will no longer have a yard sale but tables will be available to rent.

December 8th is the Family Christmas Party for Parkland Terrace. The Auxiliary members are invited. The Farmer’s Market and Pie and Coffee Sale brought in $848. Joanne gave the financial report.

Beef recall advisory The Saskatchewan Ministry of Health is reminding consumers to use safe beef handling and cooking practises, in the wake of the recent recall of Alberta beef products by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). The Ministry of Health is aware of 13 reported cases of E.coli infection in Saskatchewan in September; the usual number of cases in that month ranges from zero to four. Public health authorities are investigating these cases and conducting tests to determine whether they are linked to the recall. Laboratory results are expected within the next few days. “People can reduce their risk of E.coli infection by taking very simple, common sense steps,” Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Saqib Shahab said. “Consumers should be vigilant about thorough hand washing when handling or preparing food, and ensure that all meat is cooked thoroughly.”

Sask licence plates going stickerless Effective November 1, 2012, SGI will no longer be issuing licence plate stickers. “SGI is committed to streamlining processes for customers and maximizing efficiencies,” Minister responsible for SGI Donna Harpauer said. “Eliminating stickers will both save money and make it simpler for customers to renew their plates. Law enforcement no longer relies on licence plate stickers to indicate valid vehicle registration, so the stickers really don’t serve a purpose anymore.” Eliminating stickers will result in annual savings of $100,000, which will be redirected to support traffic safety enforcement technology, such as Automatic Licence Plate Recognition (ALPR) equipment. “The Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police supports this initiative to redirect monies saved by this change in administration,” Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police President Chief Troy Hagen said. “By redirecting the associated savings into investments such as ALPRs, public safety will be enhanced.” Over the next year customers will receive blank stickers upon renewal to cover existing stickers.

Symptoms of E.coli infection include severe abdominal pain, watery or bloody diarrhoea, vomiting, nausea, headaches but little or no fever. Symptoms usually appear within three to four days but can occur up to ten days later and last five to ten days. People most at risk of developing serious complications from E.coli are pregnant women, people with compromised immune systems, young children and the elderly. Residents with prolonged symptoms should visit their doctor or an emergency department. Dr. Shahab says people should be aware that restaurant meals as well as home-cooked food could be a potential source of E.coli if food is not handled safely. Restaurant employees and individuals involved with preparing meals for the public are advised to stay home if they are ill and seek medical advice if symptoms are severe. The Public Health Agency of Canada, Health Canada, CFIA and provincial health ministries continue to monitor the situation, in collaboration with health regions. Members of the public who have health-related questions can call HealthLine at 1-877-800-0002 or visit Updated information on the beef product recall is available at http://

LAND FOR SALE To Freshwater Land Holding Co. Ltd. My wife and I recently made the decision to sell our 5 quarters of farmland between Semans and Nokomis, Saskatchewan and we were very pleased with the service that was given to us by Doug Rue. His agricultural background and his business acumen made him the perfect fit for us in terms of completing a “worry-free” transaction. The process was swift and easy and we were more than pleased with the price we received for the land. I particularly enjoyed my conversations with Doug and his attention to detail with respect to following up with us.
