#HumboldtStrong #BroncoStrong Volume 9 No. 15

Friday, April 13, 2018

Former members of the Humboldt Broncos stand arm-in-arm as a show of unity during the vigil held at the EPA on April 8. Unity has been a common theme in Humboldt and area as members of the community have come together to mourn the loss of 15 members of the Broncos, and pray for the 14 others who were injured as a result of the devastating bus accident on April 6.

“Today and for every day forward we are all Humboldt Broncos” By Christopher Lee Journal Reporter

In Humboldt, the hockey arena is the place where fans gather to cheer on their local hockey heroes. But on April 8 fans flocked in to the Elgar Petersen Arena (EPA) for another reason – to pray for all 29 members of the Humboldt Broncos organization who were on the bus during the April 6 collision that claimed 15 lives and injured 14 others. Thousands flocked inside the EPA, and within minutes the arena was full. Overflow areas were set up across the city, including at the Jubilee Hall, Humboldt Curling Club, Humboldt Collegiate Institute, Humboldt Public School, and St. Augustine Parish Hall. Those too, were full. “We are gathered in a state of shock and unthinkable heartache. This tragedy has devastated our families, our Humboldt Broncos organization, our community, Saskatchewan, Canada and our world,” Broncos president Kevin Garinger said.

Dignitaries far and wide joined those in Humboldt to take in the vigil, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Premier Scott Moe, and Ron McLean and Don Cherry from Hockey Night in Canada. Maybe the most important dignitary on hand for the Humboldt Broncos came from an old friend. Elgar Petersen, the namesake of the very arena the Broncos play in, made the long trip from Cudworth to be there. Petersen, who was a constant around the arena for many years, has been mostly absent in recent years as age, and distance have made it more difficult for him to attend games, making his appearance at the vigil quite special. “Elgar has been part of the Broncos from the beginning and thank you for that, Elgar,” Mayor Rob Muench said. It was only fitting, perhaps, that the vigil took place on the same ice surface, and at the same time, that game six would have been played had the Broncos returned home with a win that fateful night. A moment of silence was observed

at 7:30 p.m., the time the puck would have dropped. “Hopefully we can stand together as a group, as a community, as a province, as a country together and get through this,” Muench said. The vigil, was one of the first steps in the healing process. “We will get through this together.” Garinger, who was one of the first to speak, admitted that the real reach and scope of the tragedy had not yet set in and could take months to do so. “But in all this darkness a light has shone through. This light has come from the first responders and the medical professionals who have worked miracles and continue to work miracles for those members of our Broncos family.” Support has been far reaching since people began becoming aware of the tragedy on Friday night. “To everyone who has shared a message of condolence, to everyone who has called or emailed or posted online to show their support, we hear you and we feel your love. I cannot put into words how much

this has meant to us,” said Garinger. “Today and for everyday forward we are all Humboldt Broncos and we will be forever Humboldt Broncos strong.” Broncos team chaplain, Sean Brandow, opened his raw, emotional address by admitting that he did not want to be there. “But it’s good that we are.” Brandow, who was travelling to the game behind the bus and saw the aftermath of the collision, noted he came upon a scene he does not want to see or hear again. “All I saw was hurt and anguish and fear and confusion. And I had nothing. Nothing. I’m a pastor, I’m supposed to have something.” Prayers continued from many churches in the Humboldt Christian community. Maybe the most moving moment of the evening came at the conclusion of Garinger’s speech, when he named all 29 members of the Broncos involved in the collision. First the survivors and then the deceased. “They will be forever Humboldt Broncos,” he concluded.

Viscount news By Sandra Reid Correspondent With Easter over and the Easter Bunny left colourful eggs scattered around our yard, as the days go by I keep looking to see if there is any that the grandchildren missed. I am sure as the days get warmer, I should find a few. On April 7, there were 21 people that were out to Viscount Seniors Fundraising Breakfast. Workers were Chris Rault and Louise Barlage. The Lucky Loonie winner was Barry Smith.

On April 2, there was coffee enjoyed in the morning at the Viscount Seniors, then come the afternoon games of pool, crib etc, plus visiting was enjoyed. Well we have come to another stage in our life. So proud that we have become Great Grandparents to a adorable little boy. It is so awesome, we have had the opportunity to meet him, hold him and cuddle him.What a great feeling. There was no Blankets for Canada on April 2,but will resume this Monday April 9.

Whole community behind Jansen Dinner Theatre

Taking Immediate Action CN is working to get grain moving like it should. CN is committed to western grain farmers and will continue to bring long term solutions to moving grain. As prairie yields grow, we’ll grow with you.

WEEKLY CARS SPOTTED Ken Manyk, a.k.a Paul, may have been staring into the future early in the Jansen Dinner Theatre performance, Who’s Under Wear, that ran from April 5 to April 7. Manyk would later have his own set of lingerie as him and friend, George Brunt, played by Alberta Cardinal, confront their wives about a possible affair. What they did not realize is wives, Jane and Sybil, played by Heidi Craig and Melissa Klinger, were actually trying to sell their lingerie designs to the tune of a couple of million dollars. photo by Becky Zimmer By Becky Zimmer Journal Editor

For a town of 96 people, it was all hands on deck for the Jansen Community Players dinner theatre fundraiser on April 5-7. The community players have been on the Jansen stage since 2000 with the 2018 performance being their seventh fundraising endeavor. This is their first performance in seven years, says Director Val Koshinsky, and that was too long of a break, she says. “We had a lot of very busy things going on a very small community for about 5 years and we thought we’ve got to get back to this before it’s totally lost.” Even given the small population of Jansen, it was not hard to get people behind it, says producer Kathy Jones, with everyone jumping in with both feet. “We have an awesome community and surrounding area.” While previous dinner theatre productions had around 11 local actors coming onto the stage, this time around the production was a little smaller, says Koshinsky, with a seven actor play. This time around the community players also went a different route compared to previous years by putting on a comedy performance instead of their usual murder mystery. The play focused on Jane and Sybil, two lingerie designers who are trying to close a big deal with an international lingerie distributor to the tune of $5 million. Wanting to surprise their spouses after the deal is done, Jane and Sybil do not tell their husbands, Paul and George, of their activities. This only make matters worse as the two men think they are going to find their wives cheating after they track them down to a luxurious hotel room. Of course hilarity ensues as Paul

and George take matters into their own hands and get arrested in the process and disguise themselves as women. It was no problem getting Paul and George, played by Ken Manyk and Albert Cardinal, into women considering the two men like to ham it up, says Jones. “We had very willing actors,” says Koshinsky, even with calving and kids sports on the agenda for most people. “They were very dedicated. They did sacrifice a lot.” With females taking the lead in the play, Heidi Craig and Melissa Klinger, who played Jane and Sybil, took the leap to larger parts this year. The hours put into memorizing lines and being up on stage paid off with a full house, says Craig. Manyk, a.k.a Paul, has been in six of the last seven productions and dressing in drag is nothing new. “The first time out in front of the crowd is meh but you get used to it. It doesn’t bother me a whole bunch,” he says. With the production being a fundraiser for a small community, it takes the whole community to put it on and hours upon hours of work going into it, says Manyk. There is a lot of people putting it on besides the actors on the stage, he says. “In the end, it’s worth it.” Money raised from the Dinner Theatre will stay in Jansen and area, however Jones says they are unsure how it will be spent. Previous years saw money to towards the bowling alley, both Lanigan schools, the RM of Prairie Rose history books, the Jansen Canada Day celebration, and the Jansen outdoor facility just to name a few. They are hoping to put money into lighting and a sound system for the community hall, but no decision has been made yet.

In Columbus, who should pay for Karlsson decision?

By Bruce Penton Sports Columnist

An interesting Twitter thread recently addressed the phenomenal 2017-18 season of William Karlsson, the breakout sniper of the Vegas Golden Knights. The question on Twitter was this: Should the people who run the Columbus Blue Jackets, who left Karlsson exposed in the expansion draft, be fired for their incompetence? Or should they be given a reprieve, due to the fact that no one could possibly have foreseen Karlsson, who managed six goals in 81 games last season, becoming one of the most feared goal scorers in the NHL? Justin Bourne, who writes about the NHL for The Athletic, posted this: “If you expose a player in an expansion draft who scores 40 the next season you should auto-lose your job. I know player evaluation is hard but I don’t think most guys would even be mad. ‘Yeah I know, I’m fired, that’s fair.’” Some responders blamed the Columbus GM,

Jarmo Kekäläinen; others felt that Kekäläinen provided the talented player to coach John Tortorella and it was up to the coach to extract the maximum production. Said @Julie Robenhymer on Twitter: “But, if a coach isn’t utilizing a player to their greatest advantage, I’d assume that’s a talk the GM would have with a coach to rectify. On the flip side, we’re talking about a 25-year-old player who may have simply hit his stride. Doesn’t the player deserve credit here?” Perhaps it was opportunity that knocked for Karlsson, who will be a key player counted on by the Golden Knights to help them vie for a Stanley Cup. Others, like Reilly Smith and Jonathan Marchessault, have similar stories to that of Karlsson. Both were deemed excessive parts by the Florida Panthers’ braintrust, and it must be exceedingly satisfying to Vegas coach Gerard Gallant to see two former Panthers, whom he coached until getting fired in November of last season, not only performing well but becoming vital cogs in his slam-dunk run toward the Coach-of-the-Year award. Karlsson is getting 50 per cent more ice time than he received last year in Columbus, but with 41 goals at last count, is scoring 700 per cent more goals than he did last year. Coaching? Serendipity? Luck? Whatever the reason, the brightest light among the Golden Knights collection of neon is proof that not even the most astute hockey minds can play Kreskin, and foresee how the future will unfold. • RJ Currie of sportsdeke.com: “Molly Schuyler won the Wing Bowl in Philadelphia by eating 501 chicken wings in 30 minutes. She was poultry in motion.” • Norman Chad of the Washington Post, with two of his 20 ways to make the NBA better: “1. LeBron James gets to change teams every year, and at midseason, half the roster turns over to ensure he makes the NBA Finals; 2.

• Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times: “North Dakota has been ranked the drunkest state in the U.S. But it was only No. 5 until Carson Wentz blew out his knee.” • Brad Rock of the Deseret News (Salt Lake City): “University of Memphis coach Tubby Smith went on a righteous rant about 800 college basketball players transferring ‘when they want.’ Problem was, Smith has had six jobs in the last 25 years — when he wanted. Isn’t there something about glass houses he’s supposed to know?” • Dwight Perry again: “The San Francisco Giants announced plans to retire flaxseed-oil connoisseur Barry Bonds’ No. 25 this season.

Labelling is not a black and white process

Calvin Daniels The idea of more labelling on food to provide consumers with information upon which to determine what is best to eat seems like a very logical thing. But like most things in our world the issue of additional labelling is not a simple black and white one where more is automatically better. Earlier this year Health Canada launched a consultation

period for its proposed new front-of-packaging labelling. The proposal is part of Health Canada’s Healthy Eating Strategy and would include placing new warning labels on the front of products sold in Canada for foods that are high in saturated fats, sugars and sodium. This appears like a brilliant idea, at least on the surface. So too did the idea of Country of Origin Labelling (COOL), which ended up creating a major point of conflict between Canada and the United States. The idea of COOL was one the Americans saw as an avenue to allow their consumers to make informed choices in terms of support-

ing American livestock producers, choosing beef, pork, and other foods with the US label attached. The idea seems so simple, providing a simple label to help consumers make a choice to support domestic producers. But is beef from an animal born in Canada, but sold as a feeder calf to an American feedlot a product that originated in Canada? Or, in the U.S.? Should consumers know what country the product was processed in, so they can opt to support all those processing jobs regardless of where the meat was actually raised? Imagine a mixed meat product, such as bologna or salami, is

the meat from a single country? Do the spices and fillers have to be from the same country to have a specific label? Suddenly COOL becomes a great idea in theory which becomes cumbersome and ineffective when you delve into its ramifications. Health Canada’s new initiative may prove to fall into the same massive pitfall. On its surface foods which are high in saturated fats, sugars and sodium may seem wise to avoid, and so labelling would be an asset to consumers. The problem is a little information can sometimes be worse than no information. “Our concern is that many Canadians would actually put that prod-

uct back down if they see a warning label on it. So it would impact our markets domestically,” said David Wiens, chair of Dairy Farmers of Manitoba (DFM) during one of the group’s four spring meetings held in Headingley, MB on April 4, in a recent story at www. producer.com Such labelling only works if the consumer fully understands that high levels of certain things are present, but do not automatically signal the food should be avoided. The Producer story points out sodium is used in the aging of cheese. Other products such as flavoured milks and yogurts would also see labels placed on them, however prod-

ucts like soda with aspartame would not. We have consumed cheeses and yogurts for generations, and their nutritional benefits are well known, even if they are high in salts or sugars. The situation is one of consumers understanding balance is required. Thick slabs of cheddar cheese with every meal might not be the wisest choice. Excess in most foods is not the healthiest choice, but of course that sort of information is beyond the purview of labelling. That is why any labelling, and its potential to simply confuse consumers into questionable decisions, has to be carefully understood before implementation.

How to maintain car value over the long-term When shopping for a new car, savvy buyers know finding the right car involves more than just finding the most comfortable or flashy vehicle. Numerous factors, including resale value, determine what makes a car the right car for a particular buyer. Various websites and automotive resources rank vehicles based on their potential resale value, and drivers can do much to ensure their cars and trucks maintain that resale value over the long-term. • Pay attention to the exterior. Much like homes with strong curb appeal can help homeowners get the best price for their homes when those homes are on the market, vehicles that look good can make strong first impressions on prospective buyers. Address any dings or dents on the car before putting it on the market, and make sure the car gets a thorough washing and waxing prior to showcasing it for potential buyers. Upon purchasing new vehicles, drivers with their minds on maintaining resale values can park their cars or trucks in garages as often as possible to protect them from the elements. In addition, when parking in public, avoid tight parking spaces that can increase the likelihood that other drivers will ding or dent the vehicle when entering or exiting their own cars.

• Protect the interior. A well-maintained interior will impress buyers on multiple levels. Preowned buyers may feel more comfortable buying cars with well-maintained interiors that still make them feel as if they’re buying a new vehicle. Vehicles with well-maintained interiors also give buyers the impression that sellers care about the vehicle and prioritized maintenance. Avoid eating in the car, and immediately address any spills or stains. When taking the vehicle to a car wash, spend the extra money to have the interior cleaned as well. Seat covers can help protect cloth and leather interiors from spills, stains and cracking. • Keep maintenance receipts. Another way to maintain resale value is to keep all maintenance receipts from the moment the vehicle is purchased. Preowned vehicle buyers are making substantial investments when buying preowned cars, and many will want to be certain they’re investing in the right cars and trucks. Documentation with regards to the vehicle’s maintenance can assuage any fears buyers may have and help sellers get the most money possible when putting their cars on the market. Maintaining resale value is a concern for new car buyers who want to get the best returns on their automotive investments. SC173879

Wadena satellite agriculture office to close By Devan C. Tasa For the Humboldt Journal

Wadenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s satellite agriculture ministry office is one of seven closing in the province. No jobs will be lost, as the satellite offices were only used when a producer made an appointment. Kevin France, executive director for the agriculture ministryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regional services branch, said in 2016, there were only 17 appointments at all seven

locations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really, a better service delivery method for us is: why wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we meet that producer out in the field or out in their location versus a rented space in one of these satellite offices?â&#x20AC;? Meeting space could be arranged at RM or Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation offices for those producers that would prefer to go that route. When the Wadena office was

used, it would be staffed by specialists from either Tisdale or Watrous. The closures are part of an effort to modernize services to better serve producers. Starting April 1, services will focus on delivering three key priorities: research and technology transfer, delivering programs to ensure clients have the tools they need to adopt sound management practices and building the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trust of the agricul-

Each day a ship waits in port empty waiting for grain, it charges a financial penalty â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the demurrage fee.

Estimates place the demurrage fees charged between $11,000 and $13,000 per day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cost gets passed down to the shipper, so if P&H [Parrish and Heimbecker] ordered a boat and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sitting there paying the demurrage, at some point, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making the money back,â&#x20AC;?

Bieber’s love and dedication to Humboldt “unmatched” By Becky Zimmer Journal Editor

When 107.5 Bolt FM Station Manager Brian Kusch nominated Tyler Bieber for Junior Citizen of the Year, he was not just describing a local radio personality. Bieber’s impact on the community did not stop at his work with the radio station. “After Tyler works 5:30am – 1pm he focuses all his attention on helping youth in sport,” wrote Kusch when he nominated Bieber for the 2018 Mark of Excellence Junior Citizen of the Year award, noting Bieber’s extensive work with coaching boys and girls football, boys basketball, and his work

Tyler Bieber with Big Brothers Big Sisters. After the dust settled on the April 6 Broncos bus crash, the entire community was saddened to

hear about the loss of Bieber. Bieber worked as the Broncos’ play-byplay announcer and was one of the 15 members of the Humboldt Broncos community that were killed. In total, Kusch wrote that Bieber volunteered at least 20 hours a week as well as working full time at the radio station. “It’s hard to believe someone would have time to volunteer almost 3 hours a day to giving back to the sports in Humboldt but Tyler does...if not for all his volunteer coaching I’m not sure if we would have all the youth sports that we have.”

Hockey community remembers Doerksen

Hinz remembered for his impact on community and church By Becky Zimmer Journal Editor

Rev. Brenda Curtis had a hard time listing all the impacts Brody Hinz has had on the community. From his involvement with the Westminster United Church to the Humboldt Broncos to Big Brothers Big Sisters, Hinz has had a hand in an overwhelming amount of organizations, says Curtis. It does not matter why he did it, says Curtis, what matters is that he believed in helping his community. “If there was something he could that was in his ability to do, he’d do it. That’s just who Brody was,” says Curtis. “He made more of a

Brody Hinz difference in his short life than most of us can do in a full lifetime.” This impact was felt even when he was young with Curtis recalling a

By Becky Zimmer Journal Editor

young child who was moved into dancing in church during a time when most people, “sat on their hands.” At six and seven years old, he did not just sing the hymns, says Curtis, he would dance the hymns. Curtis says people saw the joy in Hinz. “Because of him, everybody else has loosened up a bit. We can actually clap during some songs now.” While his faith and his love of sports were strong, Curtis says he also mixed the two, always suggesting players or teams to pray for when they were having a rough time, including his Humboldt Broncos.

The April 6 Broncos bus crash have left the hockey community shaken and devastated to hear about the loss of Charlie’s Charters bus driver, Glen Doerksen. Doerksen was driving the team to their game 5 against Nipawin when the collision occured. Many dedications went out to Doerksen on social media, including one from Kevin Roberts whose son played for the Melfort Peewee AA team. “Our team was lucky to have him take us on trips to Swift Current, Brandon and Kindersley

Glen Doerksen this season,” said Roberts on Facebook. “Not once did I ever hear him raise his voice, he never yelled at the boys to turn the music down either, nor did

he ask 15 pre-teens to quiet down when they sang loud, wild and out of tune. He just let the boys be themselves and enjoy the experience.” After a tough first half of the season, says Roberts, the kids enjoyed Doerksen’s two honks for a win tradition, he wrote. “We never knew him personally, we simply appreciated his warm personality, exceptional service and wonderful hospitality. It’s a weird, surreal feeling just to think how we crossed paths in those brief moments only to ponder that they are just now memories to cherish.”

In her second year as the Humboldt Broncos athletic trainer, Dayna Brons was finding her voice among the young male players. Brons childhood friend, Savanna Sarauer, says being as soft spoken as Brons understood how much of an impact she was having on the team after her grandmother passed away. The team sent her flowers and wished her and her family well in their time of grief. “They were, in a sense, like her little brothers... she was so touched that they cared about her that much. That was the point that she realized she is making a difference and that was important to

Dayna Brons

her.” As far back as Sarauer can remember, Brons was always participating in every sport she could, from being on school teams to playing with the Humboldt Thunder fastball team to hitting the ice to play hockey with the Lake Lenore Hawks.

Growing up on a farm near Lake Lenore, Broncos games were a staple for Brons and her family. And this passion for sports directed Brons into her post secondary education, first by earning her degree in Kinesiology and Health Studies with the University of Regina and then through earning her Advanced Certificate in Athletic Therapy with Mount Royal University in Calgary. A n d B ro n s a l w a y s joked of where this could take her, says Savanna. “She had joked around a few times that she had wanted to be the athletic therapist for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. She wanted to get right up there.”

CONDOLENCES

From around the world, an outpouring of support The Humboldt Journal received thoughts, prayers, and poems from around the world from people wanting to extend their condolences to the Humboldt community. Here we share with as many as we are able.

Herb Bjarnason Winnipeg, Man. In Memorium: Humboldt Broncos. The Bible says Death rides a pale horse. The Broncos’ charger Is a golden steed, of course. In a sense, Death, thou must die, when the Broncos’ charger rides gloriously in heaven on high. Ours is not to reason why, some must live, while some must die. We must accept it with a dignified grace, and hope the boys in heaven are reflected in God’s loving face.

Rosemary Lutter Of Vancouver, B.C., formerly of Saskatoon and Goodsoil, Sask. My condolences. Growing up on a farm outside Goodsoil, Saskatchewan, listening to hockey games on the radio, I wept, as do millions. Below a poem I wrote ... With Us Still We can’t believe it, they are gone, oh no. We huddle altogether as we weep. It cannot be, this loss, say it’s not so. We know, deep down, their lives they always keep. Their true identity, as does our own, Lives on beyond their merely mortal form, The who-they-are beyond this flesh and bone. This knowing who-we-are does life transform. Their goodness, joy, vitality, lives still. The who-they-are in spirit we can feel, Their love and faithfulness and their good will. Their presence in the spirit us can heal. They touch us with their love and angel wings This is the comfort that the Spirit brings. A poem in memory of the Humboldt Broncos, tragic accident on Friday, April 6, 2018

Roger More London, Ont. Broncos On heaven’s glittering sheet of ice, With golden sticks and silver pucks The Broncos fly from end to end With flashing blades of steel Their bright blonde hair The color of the sun And Gordie’s skating with them To show them all the moves The great ones know That they have missed The laughter of the young men fills the rink And time is left behind

Islamic Society of British Columbia Administration of Masjid Al-Hidaya Dear Community Assalamualaikam wrtb The Muslim community and the Islamic Society of British Columbia extend their deepest sympathy, prayers and love to our brethren in Humoldt, SK in this time of their loss and sadness. We bereave with the families of the dead whose loved ones have been lost without fulfilling their potential and promise,and we pray for the complete and speedy recovery of the injured. In this time of tragedy and loss, we are united and one with our brethren in Humboldt, Saskatchewan and Canada. 12 ECT Friday, April 13, 2018

Estevan artist Deanna Brown put this drawing up online and received so many requests to purchase the work that she offered it free for download from her website. She is sending the original, framed, to the Humboldt Broncos office.

Garth Ukrainetz Yesterday I wrote the song “We Will Rise Again” for the people of Humboldt. I dedicate this song to the people of Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Canada We Will Rise Again We will rise again We will rise again We believe in love And we will rise again We will rise again We will rise again We believe in love And we will rise again A Prairie hockey town It’s so hard to understand We’ve been knocked down to the ground The nation’s tears flood all the land A hope shines thru the pain Like a Crocus thru the snow Needs the sun and springtime rain And we will rise again We will rise again We will rise again We believe in love And we will rise again We will rise again We will rise again We’ve been knocked down to the ground But we will rise again We will rise again We will rise again We believe in love And we will rise again We will rise again We will rise again Broncos running wild and free We will rise again Broncos running wild and free We will rise again Psalm 62:1

Peter Chapman Just heard about the dreadful news about your hockey team. My son was a goalie with a team here in lancashire uk. I remember so many coach trips round the country with a bunch of smelly loud wonderful young men just like yours. Can’t imagine what the families are going through. Please pass on our love and prays from another member of the ice hockey family. God bless you all

Emily Minhinnick After this weekend’s unfortunate events, I feel it is necessary to give special thanks to all of the volunteer firefighters, paramedics, RCMP officers, bystanders, nurses, doctors, staff, and everyone else who I have missed. These extraordinary people that night witnessed and experienced things that none of us can even imagine.  When you hear of a serious accident, you always hope and pray that the people involved make it out okay, but the safety and wellbeing of the first responders sometimes gets forgotten.  Not all heroes wear capes, they wear turnout gear, uniforms, Red Serge, scrubs, lab coats, and coveralls.  My hero has been on the fire department for 44 years, lived under the same roof as me for 18, and I call him “Dad”. Thank you, each and every one of you for your service and dedication.

Monica Lipinski Fosston, Sask. Humboldt Broncos April 6, 2018 They had practiced every drill Thinking about strategy and skill. Ambition of winning was their aim, To beat their opponents, to stay in the game Weekly road travel on the bus, A common occurrence for many of us. A semi truck comes out of the blue, Life as we know it, seems so untrue. A tragedy no one saw coming, Devastation, then responders running. Everyone scrambling, what to do first. Which way to turn, to help the worst. Twenty-nine people, a bus full of fun. A minute later, life is undone, None of what happened was in the plans, Sending fifteen people into God’s loving hands. Fourteen injured, but still alive. The pain of recovery, for which they strive. Loss of family, they will never be the same. Helping each other, is the name of the game.

Pat & John Moxness Kelowna, B.C. As parents of three sons who played hockey in their younger days, our heartfelt sympathy goes to all in Humboldt, especially parents and families connected to those involved in the tragic accident. We cannot imagine how anyone feels, as everyone tries to understand why. Our middle son wrote a


CONDOLENCES poem a few years ago after losing a young friend. We hope it can bring some comfort to some at this very sad time. We feel it fits, no matter what age one loses a loved one. Always the good die young Life is never what it seems Control is far beyond our means Often those who do great good Pass away before they should But on this earth their spirits live It’s up to us their love to give. Paul Moxness Again, our most sincere sympathy to all. Remember “Big boys don’t cry ---- Men do!” Never be ashamed of tears or showing emotion. It just shows you care. Our prayers are with you. Sincerely, with aching hearts

Rory J. Koopmans Alberta With Alberta lads on the Humboldt Broncos team as well, all of Alberta & I’m sure all of the Dominion of Canada is just beyond devastated for the extended families & friends of these great hockey players, as well as for the great province of Saskatchewan! I for one hope that folks remember these poor victims whose only crime was they enjoyed good times and being in good shape athletically, as well as bonding as a team. The greatest way to honour the fallen & their injured comrades is to rebuild the team & come out stronger than ever. Regroup, play hockey in memory of the champions who can no longer play. With Deepest Sympathy

Donna Cady Boise, Idaho We are a large hockey community here , in fact, we used to have Bobby Hull’s son call our hockey games. I had a friend of mine who used to be a police officer, hockey player and father of six children and now lives in Denver, Colorado contact me to say he was devastated by the loss and would like to donate to a fundraiser if it is still needed. Their NFL team is called the Denver Broncos. Here in Boise our college football team is called the Boise Broncos and we pride ourselves in being called Bronco Nation. Another friend called me and she and I became rather emotional about the loss of the kids. We want Canada to know that everyone here in the US is truly heartbroken and sends our thoughts and prayers for the families involved. I am still a proud to be Canadian after living in the US for 35 years.

The Rt. Rev. Jane Alexander Bishop of Edmonton Members of parishes across the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton, along with Anglicans across Canada, pass on our love and deepest sympathies for the horrible accident last Friday affecting members and their families of the Humboldt Broncos Junior Hockey Club. Participating in the sport loved by so many Canadians, Junior Hockey players bring great pride and enjoyment to our country. Our prayers are with one and all.

Gary Brush Fort Langley BC. Twas’ a night in Saskatchewan when 15 beautiful people stormed through heaven’s gate. their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air. they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there. they were filled with such joy, they didn’t know what to say. they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day. “where are we?” asked one young man “this is heaven.” declared another” we’re in God’s house.” when what to their wondering eyes did appear, but Jesus, their saviour, the young men gathered near. He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same. then He opened His arms and He called them by

Ingrid Rice, The Tri-City News, Port Coquitlam name. and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring. those young men all flew into the arms of their King. and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace, one turned and looked at Jesus’ face. and as if He could read all the questions they had He gently whispered to him, “I’ll take care of mom and dad.” then He looked down on earth, the world far below He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand, “Let My presence be known “may this community and country be delivered from sorrow and sadness. then He and the young men stood up without a sound. “come now, let me show you around.” and excitement filled the space, some smiled and some ran. all displaying the enthusiasm that a child can. and i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight, “in the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT.” Abridged from an original version “Twas the night before Christmas” written by Cameo Smith, Mt. Wolf, PA

James Risdon Bathurst, New Brunswick Ten years after the fateful night which tragically took seven Phantoms basketball players and their coach’s wife from us, the memorial to these Boys in Red is still there along the highway outside of Bathurst, New Brunswick. Although I didn’t know any of these boys personally, I stopped by every single casket in our arena to pay my respects. As I did, I repeatedly came in contact with people I knew who were parents and friends, brothers and sisters, of our Boys in Red. Those left behind to mourn were devastated. Perhaps because of that tragedy here, I was particularly touched today as our priest requested we observe a minute of silence for you, the people of Humboldt. Here, at Holy Family Parish, the pews were packed today with people most of you have never met who nonetheless had their heads bowed in prayer and who asked God to help you through this tragedy and offered up prayers for your fallen young men. In the pew in front of us, an elderly woman wept. Others were visibly moved. You are not alone. Nothing can change what has happened. Our prayers will not wipe away your grief. They will not lighten the trauma for the survivors or fill the

heart-wrenching emptiness in the hearts of family and friends. This is every parent’s worst nightmare. I wish to God I could do more for you folks right now. But maybe, in some small way, just knowing we are here, praying for you, and we understand something of what is happening in your community, in your homes and your workplaces, may provide some small measure of comfort. I hope so. May God bless you all and guide you through these dark days to better times ahead. Yours in Christ

Mark Indianapolis IN, USA I would like to express my deapest sympathies to the families, friends and community for the terrible tragedy of the Humboldt hockey team. So very, very sad. I pray for the quick recovery of the injured and the healing of the families. I buried my 9mo old daughter Amanda, 44 years ago...I know the pain. You are all in my prayers. God Bless you all.

Sheena Cacchioni Trail, B.C. In a Fleeting Moment Young lives were taken far too soon and it’s left us wondering why So precious young men all of you were, it’s hard to say goodbye. No one has the answers as we’re left with broken hearts but knowing you’re in heaven is a comfort and healing start. This is a family’s nightmare it seems you can’t awake But see your son’s beautiful smile and carry on for his sake. Memories are a beautiful thing, they help to ease the pain Reminds you he lived life to the fullest, never lived in vain. He feels your grief and sorrow but asks one thing of you: “Remember that I love you and I know you love me too”. These tears that wet our face and our hearts left with a hole In that fleeting moment it changed our lives and soul. Oh, if you could only hold him tight and whisper in his ear I will love you, for always, my beautiful son my dear. Friday, April 13, 2018 ECT 13


CONDOLENCES CONDOLENCES Marg Lizee Annaheim, Sask. My Stairway to Heaven In my mind I see a long curving stairway That goes on forever At the top is a beautiful gate Surrounded by a choir of angels Each step represents a day in our lives. For some of us the steps may be few. For we never know when God’s unseen hand Will reach out to lead one of his children home. For others the steps are many, where there will be: Happiness, the steps are shallow and easy to climb. At times steep and worn because of sorrow or pain. Along the way, we are tempted to do things that cause us to fall back a few steps, on our way through life. But with God’s help we get up, and again start to climb. Then one day, on a special step, without warning You’ll hear that angel choir, and see that beautiful gate open. To be guided in by God’s hand, where the lame will walk and there will be peace, and freedom from pain.

John Humphries Meadow Lakes, Alaska I was shocked this morning when I read the headline on FoxNews, regarding your community’s tragic loss of so many young men, sons, brothers, nephews and friends. The loss struck me slightly differently from other out of town readers, because I spent 10 days in your community 15 years ago, and your little town impacted me greatly. I had a wonderful opportunity to hunt geese and ducks all around your community in 2003, to interact with families and business owners, and it is a hunt I will never forget. Not only was I hugely successful in my hunt, but I met so many wonderful, hearty and pleasant people in every nook of the community. The charm of the people and beauty and demeanor of the town structures reminded me of time I spent in Germany, France and Italy, while in the military. Because of my hunting success there, I went back to my home singing the praises of Humboldt, Saskatchewan, and you can thank me or blame me, but I have referred many friends there who had similar experiences. I know that this tragedy will bring your town to its knees, but I want you to know that it wasn’t the asthetic beauty of the town and region alone that I remember, but the character of all those of your citizenry, who greeted strangers, welcomed us from outside and gave us a glimpse into your lives and families that I will never forget. I have threatened to take my wife there, because she says she wants to see this little town in Canada,

Memorial at the Humboldt Uniplex, where people gathered all weekend to show their support, share their grief and where counselling services were available. where the people were so pleasant and welcoming. So I want you to know that my heart is heavy for you wonderful people, and I will mourn with you all. I also want to assure you that God was not surprised by this event and will only use it to bring some closer to Him, though some will also question, I pray they will find answers. With a sorrow filled and aching heart for an enormous loss.

Larry Hayes Trustee, Burnaby Board of Education SD41 It is with a heavy heart that I begin the Board Chair report this evening. This weekend, and in an instant, the tragedy in Humboldt, Saskatchewan has turned a nation upside down. The unimaginable loss to the families and communities has left a deep hole in the hearts of many Canadians. Words cannot adequately convey the sadness felt by this loss. In my work in sports I, like many, have been on those team buses … like that group of young men and adults were on that fateful evening. Those are some of the best parts of being on a team … laughing, happy, thinking about the upcoming playoff game that night … and fulfilling their dreams …

and it’s just not supposed to end that way. I’ve been in some of those Saskatchewan towns … Melfort, Tisdale, Nipawin, Humboldt … where the local ice rink is the gathering place for community and junior hockey players are kings … and I’ve been through that very same intersection of highways … as non-descript as the thousands of other highway intersections on the flat, seemingly endless prairie. But this time … it just wasn’t supposed to end that way. Fate can be cruel and have no explanation … two intersecting rural highways … two speeding vehicles … and a one-in-a-million chance. Five seconds either way and it wouldn’t have happened. But it did … and the world of so many turned upside down. Our hearts and thoughts are with the parents/caregivers, families, friends, teammates, classmates, billets, coaches, teachers, staff, fans, communities and countless others who have been impacted by this tragedy. Also, one must not forget the heroics of passerby’s and emergency services who were first on scene and the health services at local hospitals in caring for the injured. There are literally hundreds and hundreds who have been directly affected by this unthinkable accident … and our World, our Country, our Province and our School District are honoured to take a moment to remember.

Wynyard celebrates new recycling facility By Becky Zimmer Journal Editor

Many organizations contributed to the new $1.2 million Wynyard Comprehensive Recycling Centre. They celebrated their grand opening on April 5 with Sarcan and officials from the provincial government there to celebrate the finishing of the project, including MLA Hugh Nerlien for the KelvingtonWadena consistency and Government Relations Minister Warren Kaeding. General Manager of Special Projects Carl Ens says the new facility has doubled in square footage compared to their

previous facility which was a refurbished grocery store. “It’s bigger, brighter, and a much better area to serve customers in.” The new facility also includes the drop and go service for customers to drop off and tag their recyclables without needing the assistance of staff. The Wynyard facility is a joint effort between the town and Sarc/Sarcan, says Sydney Smith with Sarc and Sarcan communications, with the location sharing space with the town’s household recycling. Prior to this, there was not a centralized facility in Wynyard, she says.

“With the partnership with the town, we’ve made it so you can bring in all your beverage containers, paint, and electronics, then the town recycling is on the other side where you can bring in your household plastics, newspapers, all that stuff.” It is going to be really easy for consumers to take their waste into the facility and do all their recycling at that time, says Smith. Smith says they have an excellent partnership with the town in getting the facility ready and having this relationship. “It’s where we want to be moving with our small com-

munities...anytime we can work with the towns to make it easy and central for everyone, that’s what we want to do.” Funding for the facility came from the Building Canada funding with the federal, provincial, and municipal governments splitting the cost three ways, says Wynyard Mayor Albert Boylak. “Funding from the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan was much appreciated, as collaborative infrastructure programs involving federal, provincial and municipal governments helps make projects like this one a reality for Wynyard,” he said in a government

press release. Not every community has the advantage of a recycling facility, says Boylak in a phone interview and this is a good way to bring in people from the area, not to use the facility but also to take advantage of other services within Wynyard. Kaeding also said in a press release that the Government of Saskatchewan was proud to provide $380,000 of funding for the project. “Key infrastructure investments improve a community’s quality of life, while projects like this one help make them environmentally sustainable,” he said.

Plunkett news By Deloris Sutherland Correspondent A large crowd enjoyed the wildlife fish fry in Humboldt on March 16. Several Plunkett folks enjoyed a fish fry at the Plunkett Hotel on March 18. Several folks are away on their winter holiday and will be home soon. Several folks enjoyed the entertain-

ment at the Dakota Dunes recently. The Plunkett ladies birthday group had a party for your correspondent and it was nice. A game was played by the group and then a basket of little household gifts was opened and passed around. A lovely luncheon and birthday cake was enjoyed by all. Plunkett folks send their deepest sympathy to the family of Annie Dopko on her recent passing on

March 18 in the Humboldt hospital. I received a phone call from AnnaMae Ryanne from Vancouver Island and she is busy knitting squares to bring here for the ladies. She says there are a lot of deer around there and they eat her flowers and any garden stuff she has planted. She said there is no hunting allowed there and the deer are really thin. Telemiracle was a great success

Renovations have started at Eastside Liquidation on College Street in Muenster for the new post office. Village Council had discussed a variety of options when it came to how to approach the closure of St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Press, and with that the Muenster Post Office, says Village of Muenster mayor, Reva Bauer. This included speaking with the Village of St. Gregor who faced a similar situation. The Village of Muenster sent a call out for Muenster businesses to apply to host a new location and many local businesses stepped up, which was encourag-

ing to see, says Bauer. Eastside was chosen by Canada Post to host the mail service for the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew through the Canada Post guidelines that we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a standalone post office. It would have to remain with an existing business...we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a lot of say in the process,â&#x20AC;? says Bauer. Anytime a rural community loses a business, it hurts, says Bauer, with a lack of businesses in rural communities to begin with. We never want to see a reduction in services, she says, but the role of the post office is important as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just pleased that Cana-

da Post recognized Muenster as a vibrant community and is going to continue to provide services and support Muenster and the surrounding rural.â&#x20AC;? Other options included street front or in-business postal boxes, including the boxes at the library, says Bauer. Craig Wilkinson, co-owner of Eastside Liquidation did not want to see Muenster lose their post office, which is why he applied to host the new location. Renovations have started to hope the location will be open for May 1. Bauer says they would like to thank the St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Press for their work hosting the post office.

We cannot begin to describe the grief that is hanging over Humboldt right now. We cannot see how deep our city is going to be impacted by losing 15 amazing members of the community. But watching social media, news broadcasts and recent sporting events in the last 48 hours, I can feel the collective hug the world is sending the City of Humboldt. Throughout the weekend, the world sent the Humboldt community its love and support, with people talking about their own experiences as hockey players, donating to the GoFundMe page, and mourning with us the loss and pain of coach Darcy Haugan, the players, and the staff has shown the love that the world is collectively sending Humboldt, from words of condolence at press conferences, and moments of silence at games across the world. While I do not have the room to mention all of them, I will mention a few that touched me very deeply. The Winnipeg Jets and Chicago Blackhawks replaced their name plates on the back of their jerseys with the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;BRONCOSâ&#x20AC;? and will be auctioning off in support of the Broncos on a later date. The Jets and Blackhawks, were just two of many teams that stood at centre ice on April 7, intermixed, before their game to collectively stand with the Broncos. They were not two teams that night,

but one team mourning lives lost too young and lives who loved the game. Many NHL teams changed their team colours to green and gold, including the Jets and Calgary Flames, and many more across different leagues put the Humboldt Bronco stickers on their helmets. Toronto Maple Leaf head coach and Saskatoon native Mike Babcock knows Saskatchewan hockey and travelled that road to Nipawin many times, he said in a April 7 press conference. He was prepared to speak, he said, but he could not help getting emotional as he spoke of disbelief and prayers for the players, families, and communities. And this extends beyond the hockey world, even beyond the sports world, as Canadian Football League and Major League Baseball teams, politicians and news organizations from across the country shared their love and support. The Saskatchewan Rush fans chanted â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go, Broncos!â&#x20AC;? throughout their April 7 game. For all that is going on, Humboldt is not alone. I thank every single person and organization for their love and support they have shown Humboldt and the hometowns of the Broncos hockey players. Like I told a British Columbia cousin this past weekend, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all one big family out here, especially right now.â&#x20AC;? If anyone needs any support, do not suffer in silence. Please reach out and get help if you need. We do not know how long the community will be impacted by this tragedy, but for however long we need, we will always stick together.

In Memoriam

NORDICK: Mary Caroline Dec. 4, 1917 - Apr. 4, 2018 Mary was born on December 4, 1917 to Peter and Catherine Winand (nee Schuldt) near Watson, Saskatchewan, on the family farm where she grew up, the farm that has been in the Winand family since the year of her birth. In 1943, she married Leo Nordick. Together they raised a family of 5 children, 3 boys and 2 girls. They also boarded a young girl who became a big sister to all. They spent their lives farming in the Englefeld district until their retirement in 1974, after which they remained in their home in Englefeld, a home that she and Leo had built on the farm before their moving house and home into town in 1953. Mary took great pride in her garden and yard, especially her shrubs and trees. Her garden helped feed the family, but her yard was her retreat. After Leoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death (1993), she continued to live in their Englefeld home until the age of 91. In 2009, she moved to Humboldt where she resided at the Harry Ford Centre until 2012. From 2012 until her passing, she resided at Quill Plains Centennial Lodge, Watson. Mary loved a good card game. Many hours were spent playing Schmier and Cribbage with family and friends. Other hobbies she loved in later years were her puzzle books and reading. After retirement from farm life, she took up painting, creating lasting memories in oils, pastels and pencil for her children and grandchildren, relatives and friends. Mary is predeceased by her husband, Leo (1993); their daughter, Lori (1998); her brothers, Henry (Rufina) and Frank; her sisters, Liz (Ray) Mackey and Jo (Al) Schleper; and a special person who was like a daughter to them, Thel Kay (nee Wingert). Mary is survived by 4 children, 8 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren: Mel (Lesley) of Humboldt, and their two children, Jason (Kim) and children Logan and Shaya; and Janelle (Trent) Kurbis and children Elizabeth and William; Rick (Susan) of Winnipeg, and their two children, Nikki (Ray Cossette); and Matthew; Daryl (Carol) of Saskatoon, and their two children, Sean; and Kendra (Adam) Dumont and child Anna; and Sharon of Saskatoon, and her two children, Kristofer (Zoe) Ehlert and children Maiella and Noelle; and Jeremy (Elena) Ehlert and child Brody. She also is survived by Thelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3 children, Katherine (Michael Meltzer), Patricia (Michael Schlesinger) and Shawn (Luanne), and their families. Of her siblings, Mary is survived only by her sister, Amy [Bugs] (Don) Hinderks; and her sister-in-law, Angeline (Tom) Reiter. She leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews. A Funeral Mass was offered on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at Holy Guardian Angels Roman Catholic Church, Englefeld, SK at 10:00 a.m., celebrated by Fr. Augustine Osei-Bonsu. Others taking part were: Matthew Nordick, crossbearer; Carol Nordick and Daryl Nordick, scripture readers; Kendra Dumont, intentions; Janelle Kurbis, Jay Nordick and Shaya Nordick, giftbearers; Nikki Nordick and Ray Cossette, memorial table attendants; Holy Guardian Angels Parish Choir, music ministry; Sharon Nordick, urnbearer.
