Telemiracle wrapped up their 42nd year with a record $7,151,256 raised by the people of Saskatchewan. The total made through the 20 hour telethon broadcast from Regina, “is the largest in Telemiracle history, surpassing the total in 2012 (at) Telemiracle 36. That year ’s total was $5,906,229,” said a press release from Telemiracle Administrator, Debra Haubrich. Two significant bequeaths contributed to the record setting total. According to Haubrich in the press release, “Lucien Wayne Jacobs, a farmer from Trossachs, Sask. bequeathed Telemiracle $1,200,000. Mr. Jacobs died in a farming ac-

fundraiser efforts. Thanks to the St. Dominic Talent Show, the St. Augustine Skate-athon, the Knights of Columbus Pancake Breakfast, and the Kinettes ladder lift, the Humboldt Kinettes took close to $12,000 to give to the telethon. With Molsberry being on the Telemiracle Foundation board, she was part of the on stage group as they announced the final total. To be on stage while they announced the biggest total in Telemiracle history, it was a wonderful time, she says. But all in all Telemiracle 42 was pretty amazing. “It was pretty amazing, and great cast and wonderful talent this year. Amazing singers and dancers.”

Local MP displeased with deficit budget By Devan C. Tasa For the Humboldt Journal

Humboldt’s MP isn’t happy with this year’s federal budget. “Never has a government spent so much to accomplish so little. Budget 2018 is a big disappointment,” wrote Kelly Block, MP for Carlton Trail—Eagle Creek, via email. The budget, tabled Feb. 27, comes with a $18.1 million deficit and no plan to get back into the black in the next five years. The budget features $5 million to improve access to the Canada Child Benefit; $170 million towards a new Canada Workers Benefit aimed at ensuring lowincome earners can take home more money while they work; $10 million to improve rural broadband internet; $1 billion to improve Indigenous children’s safety, health, housing and drinking water; $340 million towards research; $249 million towards environmental initiatives; and $165 million towards addressing the opioid crisis. “It is a plan that puts people first, that invests in Canadians and in the things that matter most to them,”

said Bill Morneau, the finance minister, in his budget speech. “It’s a plan that builds on the hard work of Canadians, and that keeps us squarely focused on the future.” The budget features no GST or income tax hikes, but will generate $43 million from taxing passive investments within a private corporation, $365 million from what it calls tax loopholes – including the “application of certain rules for limited partnerships in order to prevent taxpayers from obtaining unintended tax advantages through the use of complex partnership structures”, $375 million from increased tobacco taxation and $35 million from cannabis taxes. While there isn’t much Block likes about the budget, she did say that as the shadow transport minister she liked the $81.4 million devoted to improvements to the Passenger Protect Program for airplane passengers. “It is important that we address the issue of children being flagged by the no-fly list due to the fact they have the same name as someone who is actually on the list,” she wrote. The MP said the budget fails to take advantage of a strong world economy and turn that into results for

Saskatchewan residents. “It remains to be seen what, if any, affect Budget 2018 will have on our province and the riding of Carlton Trail—Eagle Creek, with their announcements in regards to Regional Development Agencies; funding to improve access to clean and safe drinking water on reserves, programs and strategies for Indigenous health; skills and employment training and housing; as well as rural broadband.” The budget also featured a focus on women, with $105 million pegged towards women entrepreneurs, $28 million aimed at promoting equality in the workplace, $210 million to support women in other countries and other initiatives aimed at sexual harassment prevention. “We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back,” Morneau said. “Every Canadian woman should have the chance to succeed in the workplace, however she defines success. I believe Budget 2018 is long on symbolism,” wrote Block, adding she would have to see what effect the government’s spending on women entrepreneurs would have.

Meili wins NDP leadership race By Devan C. Tasa For the Humboldt Journal

The third time’s the charm for Ryan Meili. The Saskatoon Meewasin MLA is now the leader of the Saskatchewan NDP. Meili received 5,973 votes in the party’s leadership race. His competitor Trent Wotherspoon, the MLA for Regina Rosemont, received 4,860. The results were announced at a convention March 3. NDP’s Meili would focus on health, minimum wage Sask. NDP leadership candidates go head-to-head at Nipawin debate “The people of Saskatchewan are ready for change and New Democrats are ready to lead,” he told the audience at the convention. “We’re also a party of listeners. We’re going to be out there, talking to everyone we can, hearing what’s really on people’s minds, their challenges, their problems.” Meili had run for leader in 2009 and 2013. Wotherspoon had also run for leader in 2013. The new leader of the opposition told the Review on a visit to Nipawin that reconnecting to rural areas like the Northeast was key to winning the next election. He said that if he was elected premier, he would develop a water

management strategy to deal with the more frequent wet years. He’d also develop a strategy to help farmers adapt to changes in climate and markets by expanding the use of rural extension centers, more focus on plant breeding research and developing new farming techniques, and supporting producers in reaching markets. NDP’s Meili would focus on health, minimum wage For the New Democrat leader, it was curing patients of illness while working as a family doctor and then sending them back into the conditions that made them sick that got him into politics. “One of the big things that drove me to be involved in politics was realizing that what makes the biggest difference in our health isn’t doctors and hospitals, it’s how much money people make, how far they go in school, whether they’ve got a decent job and whether they have a safe place to stay and those decisions are really impacted the most at the political level,” said the Saskatoon Meewasin MLA. Meili was in Nipawin on Dec. 10 along with competitor Trent Wotherspoon to participate in a debate hosted by the Carrot River Valley New Democrats. Meili said it’s time to take a new approach to politics that’s focused on

improving the quality of life for people in Saskatchewan. That means establishing a $15/hour minimum wage, a plan to reduce poverty, investing in early childhood development and creating a pharmacare program – hopefully in partnership with the federal government and/or other provinces. “One of the biggest things to remember is that a lot of them, done right, will pay for themselves,” Meili said. “We often think an investment in early childhood as a cost but in fact for every dollar you put in, you get eight or nine dollars back to the economy in the long-term.” Saskatoon Meewasin MLA Ryan Meili is the new He added there’s leader of the Saskatchewan NDP after winning the an immediate economic impact as it leadership race between him and Trent Wotherwould help people spoon.

Users will be paying double with new React load policy By Becky Zimmer Journal Editor

June 1 is going to see changes at Humboldt landfill with the site transitioning to a transfer station. REACT CEO Wendy Yaworski says that only half ton loads will be accepted at that site and larger loads will have to be taken directly to the new LeRoy landfill site. Insecure loads, meaning any load that is not secured in a way to keep garbage from flying off the vehicle, will be charged double at either site, says Yaworski, and React sites will have a supply of tarps available for people to purchase. “Throughout the year, we’ve seen anything and everything in the ditches. We’ve seen box springs, mattresses, stoves, fridges, deep fridges. And people will lose them and just leave them. They know they’ve lost the item, they just won’t go back.” Lyle Ruf with React in Humboldt says that it is the landowners who are being impacted by flying garbage. With the secured loads being a cheaper option for people taking loads to the landfill, he hopes people will stop making it someone else’s problem. “It just becomes good policy for everybody; if you want to take your trash there, make sure it’s secure and that doesn’t cost you a thing. If you don’t care, it costs you more.” The React site is owned by 31 urban municipalities and 16 RMs in the area, serving a population of

26,286, and if React staff is out clearing debris from the ditches, that means that users will be paying for other people’s garbage, says Ruf. There is a cost to doing this, says Yaworski,and the cost has to be passed on, in the end to taxpayers. The React board is looking into changing rates for landfill use, with Yaworski estimating that that could come into play April 1. Even with truck and landfill cells being big costs on their radar, Yaworski and Ruf say that React is in a good position with the Cudworth landfill being brought up to standard with a new landfill cell and the LeRoy landfill set to open June 1 (

Most quiet on baseball’s free agent front By Bruce Penton Sports Columnist

‘Collusion’ is a hot word these days in the world of American politics, but it’s also being whispered around Major League Baseball as dozens of solid major leaguers wait patiently for their agents to strike a deal with a team willing to shell out millions of dollars for their services. Actually, ‘collusion’ is a word to be avoided among Major League teams, because it’s a word that cost owners millions of dollars in the 1980s after an arbitrator found them guilty of deceitful practices that kept free agents from signing massive contracts. Today, the ‘C’ word has been replaced by what owners call the Double C — cost consciousness — to explain why so many free agents are still unsigned. In a normal off-season, a player coming off a 25-home run season would be wined and dined by a number of MLB teams before bringing his talents, his family, his agent, his chauffeur, his masseuse, his banker, his financial advisor and his pizza delivery man to his new city. Invariably, the player — a veteran, obviously, because young players haven’t built up resumes to command large contracts — performs well below expectations because: a) his talents are eroding with age; b) he has so much money in the

bank that motivation to excel is, except in rare instances, lacking. Team owners are in the business because they love baseball, but even moreso because they love making money, and the realization has occurred to many of them that their team might be able to contend without expensive free agents, going instead with lower-paid younger players. But what team couldn’t use the services of slugger Carlos Gonzales (32 years old and a .288 career batting average)? How about pitching? Jake Arrieta, coming off a 14-10 season with the Cubs, is available, as is Lance Lynn (71 wins in the last five seasons with the Cardinals). Slugger J.D. Martinez, 45 homers with Detroit and Arizona last year, was ignored until Feb. 19 when finally signed by Boston. Columnist Greg Cote in the Miami Herald ripped the new Marlins ownership and Derek Jeter, their front man, for breaking up a potentially competitive team for the sake of profits, leaving the fans out to dry. The Marlins got rid of sluggers Giancarlo Stanton (59 HR) and Marcel Ozuna (37 HR), along with talented starters Christian Yelich and Dee Gordon, in exchange for cheap contracts and ‘prospects.’ The new ownership’s prospectus to investors, Cote wrote, shows a $68 million profit for the Marlins in 2018,

which should bring in a whack of investment cash from some of Florida’s wealthy retirees. Maybe that prospectus can be taught to track down fly balls, or lash a curveball to centre. • Former Anchorage Daily News desker Roy Neese, via Facebook, after the U.S. topped Canada to reach the gold-medal match in men’s curling: “That’s like the U.S. beating Italy in pasta-making.” • Vegas Golden Knights twitter feed: “ QUESTION: If the Canadiens get a goal and Jeff Petry gets an assist on a nice pass, do they ever call it a Petry Dish?” • Bob Molinaro of (Hampton, Va.): “As is my quadrennial habit, I wonder if the four-man bobsleds at the Winter Games come with cup holders.” • Brad Dickson of the Omaha WorldHerald: “According to the North Korean medal tracker, Kim Jong Un won every single Winter Olympics medal.” • Dickson again: “It’s getting bad.

Dismantling of supply management appealing on surface

Calvin Daniels Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney is suggesting it is time Canadians give up the supply management system. In a recent keynote speech at CropConnect in Winnipeg he said dismantling the system would create a boom for food processors and

provide more affordable food for consumers. At the same time Mulroney did suggest that farmers would need to be offered a healthy compensation package as part of the changeover. These are not particularly new ideas, neither is the offered position when one considers the political leanings of the former Conservative leader. The Conservative in whatever manifestation they have taken at the federal level in Canada have never been particularly supportive of supply management. The concept of the dismantling of the supply management sector leading to lower food costs is

appealing, at least on the surface. Of course we have often seen potential cost savings arise which never quite get to the consumer, the savings seeming to be lost somewhere in the supply chain long before getting to the till at the store where the consumer benefits. Of course a question that one might want to ask which might not be popular, is if our food is too costly now. Certainly a trip to the supermarket each week burns through a considerable amount of income. But as I have noted here before when one eliminates the dish soap, after shave, tea towels, hockey

magazines, cat food, water softener salt, garbage bags, junk food, and all the other non-food items in the bags one carries to the car, the actual food cost is far less than most immediately assume. There is also something about a system which benefits consumers only by reducing the amount of money going to the primary producer of the food which should rub us all a bit uncomfortably. It is great to have reasonably priced food, but one would hope society also wants to see local producers able to make a reasonable living producing that food. There is also the very

real concern we should have in terms of food security. The system is increasingly geared to be able to trace food from the table to the source farm should any food safety issues arise. That traceability becomes far more difficult and frankly suspect, when crossing federal borders. And there is also the potential for border closures, higher costs and less control of standards moving forward.

Trade Agreement with the outcome of that effort far from clear at present. Trump is also blustering about massive new tariffs such as steel and aluminum. What might come next is unknown, but becoming more reliant on foreign sources for key food stuffs such as dairy, cheese and poultry might seem questionable given the current trade uncertainty Trump brings. Any change to supply managed systems will need to be carefully mapped out before taking a step from which there will be little chance of recovery if it proves to offer less than expected in terms of returns.

Average return remain steady for 2018 crop insurance program By Becky Zimmer Journal Editor

Crop insurance returns for Saskatchewan producers will remain steady through 2018, announced Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister, Lyle Stewart. Stewart, as well as Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC) CEO and President, Shawn Jaques, along with other members of different agricultural organizations gathered at the SCIC head office in Melville to discuss the new 2018 crop insurance program. “Overall coverage for Saskatchewan producers remain at very high levels, the average insurance coverage is $216 per acre compared to $217 last year.” Producers will be paying a slightly less premium for the coverage at an $8.41 an acre average compared to $8.51 an acre in 2017. Stewart says the crop insurance program remains strong due to improvements to Saskatchewan crop production. “Premiums have remained relatively steady because of the strong fun balance used to pay

claims,” says Stewart. Stewart says that, despite $600 million in claims in 2016 and $200 million in claims in 2017, SCIC maintains a fund balance of $2 billion, “which helps keep premium low for producers.” Establish benefit values will also be on the rise for canola, sunflowers, chickpeas, and grain corn and will be decreased for large green lentils. Through establish benefits, “producers are compensated for crop that is seeded but fails to establish due to insurable causes. The compensation amounts are reviewed annually to ensure they compensate for the cost of seeding the crop,” says Stewart. Marketing of grain continues to evolve and industry leaders have more choices than ever to contract their production. Contract pricing options have now been expanded through SCIC and a total of 30 crops are now eligible. Bill Prybylski with Agriculture Producers Association of Saskatchewan says these are positive changes for both the

cattle and grain and oil seed industries. “Changes to the contract pricing option is a positive step and reflects the more modern marketing of our grains and oil seeds.” Stewart also announced changes to the insurance programs, the key being changes to fire protection for pasture land. Fall 2017 saw 88,000 acres of land impacted by wildfires, much of this including pasture land, says Stewart. Fire insurance for pasture land will now be an option for producers and ranchers as part of the new 2018 crop insurance program. “There was no insurance for fire damage on the pasture but now producers will be able to easily access coverage. Producers who enroll in the Forage Rainfall Insurance program will have year round coverage for fire when they purchase that insurance.” Insurance for forage was something that has been in need of improvement, says Stewart, so work will continue into 2018

after changes were made in 2016. Stewart announced that forage restoration benefit will be included for tame hay and alfalfa seed to, “compensate producers for insured acres of established hay or alfalfa due to prolonged flooding.” Improvements will also be make to the wildlife damage compensation. Coverage for calves lost in predator attacks were not adequate with compensation being based on the cost of the animal at the time of the loss, says Stewart. In 2018 will have new compensation rates for the loss of calves. Bill Huber, vice-president of the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association says they appreciate that government is recognizing the cost that predation is having on producers. “The enhancement puts Saskatchewan producers on a level playing field and it’s a program that certain works well.” As it was already announced by the Government of Saskatchewan, there will a PST exemp-

tion on crop, livestock, and hail insurance premiums as well as individual and group life and health insurance premiums, says Stewart. The exemption is retroactive to Aug. 1, 2017. Many industry partners were also in attendance during the announcements in Melville, including members from different commodity organizations. Stewart says they are trying to grow the program in consultation with these partners so he was grateful for all who could attend the announcement. “It’s your input and feedback that provide guidance and directions for making improvements and ensuring that the program is relevant and continues to meet the needs of Saskatchewan farmers and ranchers.” With concerns over moisture levels during this years growing season, Stewart encourages all farmers to be prepared for the challenges this year will bring. “Risk management has never bee more important for Saskatchewan farmers,” says Stewart.

Local schools pitching in at soup kitchen By Becky Zimmer Journal Editor

While the people attending the Community Soup Kitchen in Humboldt has gone up, so has the number of people pitching in to provide support for people in need. Soup Kitchen founder James Folster says local school groups from Humboldt and area have been stepping up to come in and lend a hand. On Feb. 27, members of the Naicam School’s Student Council brought themselves and donations of care packages. Homelessness was an issue that the group wanted to work on during the Christmas season so the group raised money and collected donations of hygene and clothing items. Each package includes hygene products like razors, soap, toothbrushs, as well as warm clothing items like mitts and socks. Last year the group distributed items around Saskatoon but this year, they wanted to make more of a local connection, so everything went to the Soup Kitchen. Folster says that more student groups are getting involved with Quill Lake School We Group coming down the first three Tuesdays in January to lend a hand and the Watson School We Group plan-

ning to make their way down in May to help. The group wanted to help out, says Beatrice Weigel, a Quill Lake teacher. “It was such a good experience for them to see that it’s not just homeless people that need the soup kitchen, it’s the socializing aspects, as well.” It was such a good experience for them, says Weigel, with the group having the chance to spend time with people who use the soup kitchen, including the young children. Both James, and his wife, Hilda, say that they are grateful for how the community is contributing to the soup kitchen. James says that the help is always appreciated but the way school groups have pitched in lately is great to see. “I’m speechless a lot of times,” says James. Getting groups in to help out also helps spread the word about the organization, says Hilda Folster. “It shows people how it is needed and more and more people get involved. It helps with donations and keeping the Soup Kitchen open.” Around 80 people come every week for a meal and conversation, so the need is there, says Folster. And this need hits every demographic of people from babies and small children right up to seniors.

And the Soup Kitchen welcomes everyone, says Folster, who says many people come more to socialize, bringing a donation or a food contribution for that week.

“It shows their appreciation, and then they visit and make friends.” Through the Soup Kitchen, Folster himself has been blessed with good friends, including his wife.

Members of the Naicam School’s Student Council spent Feb. 27 helping out at the Community Soup Kitchen in Humboldt. They also brought collected donations of hygenie products and clothing items and money that built care packages for people in need in the Humboldt area. Spokesperson for the group, Kennedy Dufault, says they did a similar fundraiser for groups in Saskatoon but wanted their efforts this time to go to local people in need.

Wadena wins regional curling title By Christopher Lee Journal Reporter

While most of Saskatchewan’s curling attention was centered on the brier over the weekend, high school curlers were also in action competing in the regional bonspiels, with women’s and mixed events in Foam Lake and the boys event in Wadena. The March 2-3 bonspiels featured four local schools in action including Humboldt, Wadena, Muenster, and Lanigan. Wadena was the lone local school to send two representatives, with one team competing in the boys event and one in the girls competition. Mixed The lone local to compete in the mixed bonspiel was Lanigan. It was a tough bonspiel for the Lazers as they missed out on claiming a spot at provincials, coming one win shy. The bonspiel got off to a tough start for the Lazers as they dropped their opening round contest 9-6 to Melfort

and were dropped to the Lower Bracket. Thanks to their loss Lanigan was required to win three straight to get into provincials. After suffering their opening round loss, the Lazers were able to regroup, knocking off their Horizon School Division rivals from Foam Lake 7-4. With the win the Lazers moved into the Lower Bracket semi-finals where they took on Meath Park. After building up some momentum with a quarterfinal win, the Lazers kept right on rolling in their semi-final contest, upending Meath Park 9-4. The win moved the Lazers in the Lower Bracket final where they had a rematch with Melfort. Knowing a win would move the Lazers on to provincials they came out determined, but were unable to exact revenge on Melfort as they fell 8-5, eliminating them from playoff contention. Girls The girls bonspiel featured a pair of local teams as Muen-

ster and Wadena were both in action. It was an ugly trip to provincials for Muenster as they crashed out in two quick games. The bonspiel got off to a tough start for the Cougars as they fell 8-1 to Tisdale. The Cougars were unable to regroup after their loss and suffered their second straight losing 7-6 to Arborfield, officially eliminating the Cougars from playoff contention. Wadena meanwhile, enjoyed a terrific bonspiel as they emerged as regional champions. Wadena made quick work of the bonspiel, refusing to lose a game along the way picking up an opening round 12-5 win over Nipawin. The win moved Wadena into the Upper Bracket semi-finals where they took on Arborfield. After rolling through their opening round match, the Blue Devils got a little stiffer test in their next contest against Arborfield, but stuck with it long enough to pull out an 8-4 win. The win moved the Blue

Devils into the Upper Bracket final where they took on Foam Lake, with the winner earning a spot at provincials. As was the trend, the Blue Devils got an even stiffer test from their Horizon School Division rivals, but the Blue Devils refused to say die coming away with a 7-5 win. The win gave the Blue Devils the Upper Bracket title. After sitting on the sidelines and waiting for the final, Wadena would once again take on Foam Lake, this time with the regional title on the line. Despite having to wait for the final to take place, Wadena came out playing well and left nothing up to chance sliding away with a 7-3 win and the regional title. Boys The boys bonspiel featured a pair of locals as Humboldt Collegiate (see Humboldt Journal for full story) and Wadena were both in action. It was a tough trip to regionals for Wadena as they failed to earn a spot at provincials. The bonspiel got off to a

tough start for the Blue Devils as they dropped their opening round contest 8-5 against Saskatoon Holy Cross. The loss moved Wadena into the Lower Bracket playoffs where they took on Prince Albert Carlton. The Blue Devils were able to regroup from their opening round loss to knock off Prince Albert Carlton 8-3. The win moved the Blue Devils into the Lower Bracket quarters where they took on Carrot River. Their quarterfinal contest was an evenly matched affair with the game coming down to the final end, before Wadena was finally able to come away with a 6-5 win. With the win the Blue Devils moved into the semi-finals where they took on Prince Albert St. Mary. Unfortunately for the Blue Devils their magic would run out here as they dropped a heart breaking 8-7 decision to Prince Albert St. Mary, officially bringing an end to the Blue Devils’ provincial hopes.

International changes to recycling policy changes things in Humboldt By Becky Zimmer Journal Editor

As of the end of 2017, the usual markets for recycling plastic bags and all other plastic film, including food wrap, cellophane and packaging, is gone, after China’s National Sword Program banned all plastic film from acceptable recyclables. This means changes to the way that React does their recycling, says Lyle Ruf with React in Humboldt. Currently, all recyclable materials are bailed and taken to the Loraas Recycle in Saskatoon. With the changes in China, Loraas is also not taking in plastic bags, food wrap, cellophane or packaging to be recycled which means that these products will also not be taken in by React. “There’s no market for them anymore,� says Ruf, “so even though they

are technically still recyclable, there’s nobody that will take them to do it.� While the bags are still recyclable, Ruf says there is no place that will take them because storage becomes difficult while waiting to ship off enough bags to make it worth the cost of shipping. This may change down the road, he says, but alternatives are now a better option than continuing to use plastic bags. The option now is for plastic bags and film to go in the landfill, but even that is not a viable place to put them, says Ruf. They can travel for miles on a good wind, he says, but right now, the landfill is the only place for them to go. Loraas recycling has informed React that all plastic bags and film must be out of their streams by March 1, says React CEO, Wendy Yaworski,

which has proven time and energy intensive, especially the way their building is set up. They are asking people to eliminate the problem at the source. “It would become cost and time prohibitive for the space we have in order to keep pulling this out and segregating it before we send it off,� says Ruf. “It’s much easier for us if we send it off already done.� With the new program in China, they have also increased their standard for amount of contaminates allowed in the containers of recycling. Any containers that exceed that standard goes back to the country of origin. This has increased the cost of recycling for a lot of countries, says Ruf, with hundreds of containers in the United States with no where to go. “It’s going to all be resorted, re-

cleaned, and re-bailed in order to send to China. And China’s going through each container with a fine tooth comb to find out whether they accept it or not.� This stricter standard is keeping countries from treating China like their dumping ground, says Ruf. This is having a ripple effect with many cities and communities reacting to these stricter policies by banning plastic bags all together, including Montreal and Victoria. Loraas recycling has also started proposing a city wide ban to Saskatoon city council. Even if the stores go back to paper bags, at least the paper is recyclable and more biodegradable than plastic bags, says Ruf. The bottom line, they no longer want to see plastic bags at their landfills, says Yaworski.

Provincial hockey rages on across the province By Christopher Lee Journal Reporter

With the calendar flipping to March minor and senior hockey teams from around the region have been hot on the trails of a provincial title. Peewee B The lone local to compete in Peewee B provincials was Humboldt. It was a tough trip to provincials for the Humboldt boys, as they suffered 9-3 losses both at home and on the road, which resulted in an 18-6 series loss to Tisdale, eliminating Humboldt from provincial action. Peewee C The lone local squad competing in Peewee C provincial action was Watrous. Watrous enjoyed a solid provincial tournament, winning their first round thanks to a 5-5 tie and a 5-2 win over Porcupine Plain. The 10-7 series win moved Watrous into the next round of provincials where they took on Preeceville. Unfortunately for Watrous, the momentum built up from round one could not be carried over to round two as they suffered losses of 6-2 and 5-0. The 11-2 series loss officially put an end to Watrousâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hopes of winning a provincial title. Peewee D The busiest of the peewee provincials for local teams came in the Peewee D division where Lanigan, Wynyard, Muenster, and St. Brieux were all in action. The provincial tournament was a short one for Lanigan as they suffered losses of 5-3 and 6-2 against Dinsmore, resulting in an 11-5 series loss, officially eliminating Lanigan from provincial action. Joining Lanigan in the quit exit line was St. Brieux, whose losses of 5-1 and 6-2 against Muenster left them with an 11-3 series defeat. Muenster meanwhile, managed to move into the second round of provincials thanks to their aforementioned victory over St. Brieux. In the second round Muenster took on Wynyard. Unfortunately for Muenster, they were unable to keep rolling as they suffered losses of 12-3 and 3-2 resulting in a 15-5 series loss. Wynyard meanwhile, will be moving on to round three as their series win over Muenster and their first round 24-3 series win over Hudson Bay has them playing for a spot in the provincial final. Bantam A Bantam A provincials featured a pair of teams as Cudworth and Muenster were both in action. Unfortunately it was not a very good time for either team as both suf-

fered ugly round one losses. Cudworthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial trip resulted in a 15-5 series defeat at the hands of Battlefords, thanks to losses of 7-2 and 8-3. Things went even worse for Muenster as they were handed a 16-5 series loss by Martensville. After losing 7-2 in game one, Muenster was unable to flip the script on Martensville and suffered a 9-3 loss in game two. The series losses see both teams wave goodbye to their hopes of winning a provincial title. Bantam B The busiest of the four levels of provincial bantam action came in Bantam B where Wynyard, Drake and Humboldt were all in action. The most successful of the four teams was Wynyard, who picked up a 34-6 win over Langenburg in round one thanks to wins of 20-3 in game one, and 14-3 in game two. The win moved Wynyard into round two where they took on Melville. Must like in their first round series, Wynyardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense was firing on all cylinders as they piled up 19 goals en route to a 19-11 series victory thanks to wins of 14-7 in game one, and 5-4 in game two. The win moved Wynyard into round three where they took on Drake. Drake met Wynyard in the third round after beating Preeceville 9-8 in round two. It was an especially close series between the two teams, as they tied 4-4 in game one, before Drake won 5-4 in game two. Drake had a first round bye. In their third round series, it was Wynyard who came out on top, rolling to wins of 6-2 and 9-2 to take the series 15-4. With the win Wynyard, moves into the provincial semi-finals where they will take on Shaunavon. Rounding out the local flavour was Humboldt, who suffered a 10-5 series defeat at the hands of Melfort, thanks to a 6-3 loss in game one, and a 4-2 loss in game two. Bantam C The lone local Bantam C provincial entrant was Watrous, who took on Leoville in round one. Watrous rolled through the series winning 8-0 in game one and 9-4 in game two to take the series 17-4. Thanks to their lopsided victory, Watrous will move into the provincial semi-finals where they will take on St. Walburg. Bantam D Lanigan was the lone local in the Bantam D provincial tournament and did not last long. Lanigan was knocked out in the first

series, Cudworthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magic ran out in round two as losses of 6-0 and 6-1 left Cudworth with a 12-1 series defeat. Lanigan meanwhile, failed to get out of the first round as they dropped a 9-5 series decision to Redvers thanks to losses of 6-3 and 3-2. Senior A The Senior A provincial tournament featured a trio of local teams with Wynyard, Wakaw, and Watrous all in action. The first round pitted a pair of locals against one another as Wakaw took on Wynyard. Wakaw rolled through round one, knocking off Wynyard two games to none thanks to a 2-0 win in game one and a 6-3 win in game two. With their win, Wakaw met Waldheim in round two. Waldheim was fresh off knocking Watrous out of provincials in three games thanks to a 6-3 win in game one and a 3-2 win in game three, with a 7-2 loss sandwiched in the middle. Waldheim continued to be the local giant killer as they knocked off Wakaw in three games thanks to a 5-2 win in game one and a 5-3 win in game three, with a 4-1 loss sandwiched in between. Senior C One of the busiest provincial tournaments featuring locals came in the senior C division where Drake, Lanigan, LeRoy, and Raymore were all in action. Lanigan struggled at provincials this year falling in the first round to Kerrobert thanks to a 14-6 series defeat. Provincials got off to a tough start for Lanigan as they fell 6-2 in game one and could never recover losing game two 8-4. The remaining trio each moved into the second round. Drake moved into the second round thanks to a 9-4 win over Delisle, as they picked up a 5-1 win in game one and a 4-3 win in game two. LeRoy meanwhile, moved into the second round to take on Drake as their 2-2 tie in game one and 8-1 win in game two gave them a 10-3 series victory over Hague. With their wins the two teams played each other in the second round. Drake emerged from the series as the champion as they picked up wins of 6-1 and 1-0 to win the series 7-1 and move into the provincial semi-finals. Raymore meanwhile, also moved into the second round as they knocked off Wawota in round one 8-6. After picking up a 4-2 win in game one, Raymore did just enough in game two to emerge as the series victor as they managed just a 4-4 tie in game two. With the win Raymore moved into the second round where they took on Theodore. After managing just a 4-4 tie in game one, Raymore was unable to pull out the game two win, losing 7-2, which gave Theodore an 11-6 series victory.

round of provincials after losing the series 21-3 against Hudson Bay. It was a rough pair of contests for Lanigan, who struggled to keep the puck out of the goal in either game, losing 13-2 in game one, and 8-1 in game two. Midget B Midget B provincials featured a pair of teams as Wynyard and Naicam were both in action. It was a tough trip to provincials for Naicam as they failed to get out of the first round, losing 10-9 in heart breaking fashion to Preeceville. The series started out excellently for Naicam as they picked up a 7-2 game one win, setting the stage for an easy game two and an easy advancement. Unfortunately for Naicam, game two was not easy as they gave up seven goals, in a 7-2 loss, eliminating them from playoff contention. Wynyard meanwhile, enjoyed a little more success as they were able to move into the second round. Wynyard took care of business in round one, knocking off Outlook 11-8 thanks to wins of 7-5 in game one and 4-3 in game two. The win moved Wynyard into round two where they took on Unity. Unforutnately for Wynyard they were not able to duplicate the success they enjoyed in round one as they fell 9-8 to Unity. After tying 5-5 in game one, Wynyard was unable to pull out the game two win losing 4-3. Midget C The lone team competing in Midget C provincial action is Muenster, who have enjoyed a solid provincial tournament thus far. Muenster kicked off provincials by picking up a 6-2 series victory over Clavet thanks to a 3-1 win in both game one and two. With the series win Muenster moved into the second round where they took on Shellbrook. After a difficult opening round, Muenster rolled through the second round knocking off Shellbrook 13-2 thanks to a 4-1 win in game one and a 9-1 win in game two. With the win Muenster moves into the provincial semi-final where they take on Delisle. Midget D Just two local teams took part in Midget D provincials, with Cudworth and Lanigan both in action. The more successful of the two teams was Cudworth, who managed to win their first round series 4-3 over Paradise Hill. The series was a defensive battle between two evenly matched teams as Cudworth picked up a 3-2 win in game one, before managing just a 1-1 tie in game two. The series victory moved Cudworth into the second round of provincials where they took on Macklin. After edging by in their first round

Obituaries STROEDER: Dolores Florence Jan. 11, 1933 - Feb. 26, 2018 Mrs. Dolores (nee Bieker) Stroeder of Humboldt, SK, passed away on Monday, February 26, 2018, at the Humboldt District Hospital. She was 85 years of age. Dolores was born on January 11, 1933, to Gregor and Elizabeth (nee Stadelman) Bieker at home on the family farm at Englefeld, SK. She relished the role of being the eldest. Dolores grew up on the farm, and attended Greenside School in the area. For high school Dolores attended HCI in Humboldt and Sion Academy in Saskatoon. She had the opportunity to live with her Stadelman grandparents while her family was away. Dolores was a devout Catholic, which showed by her many volunteer activities, including volunteering at church, joining the CWL, Legion of Mary, Notre Dame Club, Rural Life Ministry and helping at many of the local functions at Englefeld. She attended Robertson Secretarial School in Saskatoon, which led her to a 15 year-career with the federal government there. In 1967, while bowling with her league, she met Stanley Stroeder, a young man from Beechy, SK. Dolores and Stan were married on October 14, 1967, and moved to the Bieker family farm at Englefeld in 1968. There, Jerry was born in 1969, and Dean followed in 1973. Dolores fell into her new role as wife and mother with ease, grace and love; with three men around, it took a lot of work to keep them all in line. She was Stan, Jerry, and Deanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest supporter, and could be found right beside them lugging heavy sod pallets, and looking after the farm alone in winter. In 2005, her only grandchild was born, and her heart was full again. Grandma and Jasper had a strong bond, and were the world to each other. Dolores had a flare for design, was the family historian, had a great love of the outdoors and nature, and loved farm life. She could predict the weather better than the CBC weatherman. Dolores had toughness and resilience when it came to pain and suffering. She was truly amazing and inspiring. Dolores will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her two sons and one granddaughter: Jerry-Joe Stroeder (Renae Kleiter) of Englefeld and his daughter Jasper, and Dean of Victoria, BC; daughter-in-law, Stacey Stroeder of Humboldt; three sisters: Marge (Ed) Hujber of Red Deer, AB, Vyenda (Dennis) Korte of Humboldt, and Lisa (Dean) Clark of Outlook; two sisters-in-law: Helen Bieker of McCook, NE, and Diane McConville of Marshfield, MO; numerous nieces and nephews; and by the extended Kleiter family - especially Kase and Ella. She was predeceased by her husband, Stanley Stroeder (2016); parents, Gregor and Elizabeth (nee Stadelman) Bieker; parentsin-law, Joseph and Mamie Stroeder; and brother, Ron Bieker. The Prayer Service for Dolores was held at St. Augustine R.C. Church, Humboldt, on Thursday, March 1, 2018, at 7:30 p.m., led by Marlene VanDresar and organist Dolores Hinz. Scripture readers were Jennifer Fitzpatrick and Joshua Clark, and words of remembrance were given by Ed Hujber. The Funeral Mass was offered at St. Augustine R.C. Church on Friday, March 2, 2018, at 2:00 p.m., celebrated by Fr. Michael Yaremko. Others taking part were: Jennifer Fitzpatrick and Joshua Clark, scripture readers; Gladys Freriks and Lisa Clark, intentions; Jerry, Dean and Jasper Stroeder, giftbearers; Melanie Bain, Wanda and Al Fouhse, memorial table attendants. Music ministry was provided by director, Loretta Schugmann, organist, Marie Aubin, soloist, Sandra Athmer, and members of the St. Augustine and Holy Guardian Angels parish choirs. An honor guard was formed by members of the C.W.L. Honorary pallbearers were Marie Nordick, Gladys Freriks, Alice Nordick, Jeannine Koenig, Wanda Fouhse, Elaine Zimmer, and Vi McLean. Active pallbearers were Joshua Clark, Jordan Bain, Dean Clark, Jeff Korte, David Schwartz, and Mitchell Kleiter. Interment followed at Holy Guardian Angels R.C. Cemetery, Englefeld. Memorial donations may be directed to either the Canadian Cancer Society or the Holy Guardian Angels R.C. Cemetery Fund. Schuler-Lefebvre Funeral Chapel, Humboldt, SK. (306-682-4114)

LUKAN (REIFFERSCHEID): In loving memory of Gail. July 10, 1958 - March 13, 1999 The moment that you died, Our hearts split in two, The one side filled with memories, The other died with you. We often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, Ad take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy, We do it every day, But missing you is a heartache, That never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts, And there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, But it never will be the same. For those who still have their daughter, Treat her with tender care, You will never know the emptiness, As when you turn and she is not there. Missing you always. Sadly missed and lovingly remembered by Mom and Dad, sons Morgan and Jeremy, sisters Val, Audrey, Lorie and families

With broken hearts we remember this day. On eagles wings you were taken away. No time to say goodbye, You wonderful memories are with us today - everyday. But our broken hearts will forever remain a broken heart. Your laughter, your happy face I still see. No one knows the hurt, until it happens to you. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Timeâ&#x20AC;? does not heal a broken heart - ever. We will meet again someday. Lovingly remembered and deeply missed.

Not a day passes by Mom that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cross my mind, Not all of you departed when you left the earth behind. For in my heart there is a place that only you can hold, Filled with loving memories that I care for like gold. I know you still hear me Mom, and I want you to know, That everything I am today is because of you. Love you Mom!

Jerome Angelstad and his family would like to thank all who offered prayers, support and donations towards my cancer treatments. Special thanks to the Knights of Columbus, Toastmasters, and those who donated to the silent auction at the pancake breakfast. You are truly wonderful neighbors to have.

With district and conference play right around the corner basketball teams from across Horizon School Division were putting the finishing touches on their league season with league championship games. Senior Girls South West League The Senior Girls South West League featured one of the closest finals, between two very evenly matched teams. Humboldt Collegiate (4-1) took on Lanigan (5-1) in the final, with each team holding a victory over the other. With two evenly matched teams it was only fitting the final would come down to a couple of points, with Lanigan eventually pulling out a nail biting 31-28 victory over HCI. While most leagues elected not to play the third place game, the Senior Girls South West League elected to play the game with Imperial taking on Watrous. Offense was a struggle for both teams this season and that trend continued in the third place game as they combined for just 27 points, with Imperial pulling out an 18-9 win. Senior Boys North West League The Senior Boys North West League championship final featured one of the more lopsided championship finals as Lanigan Blue took on Viscount. Lanigan (5-0) came into the final as the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top seed, and full of momentum having knocked off Viscount (4-1) 81-44 in their only meeting of the season on Dec. 21. Despite having more than two months to prepare for Lanigan, Viscount was unable to exact any revenge on Lanigan Blue as they were routed 73-25. Junior Girls North West League After rolling through the regular season, St. Brieux â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aâ&#x20AC;? are league champions after picking up a 77-37 win over Middle Lake. St. Brieux came into the final as the favourite, thanks to a pair of wins over

Middle Lake earlier this season by a combined score of 114-76. Unfortunately for Middle Lake they were unable to pull off the upset as their defense, which struggled in their two previous contests struggled once again allowing a league high 77 points. Junior Girls Central League The Junior Girls Central League championship featured our first lower seed league champion. Although the lower seed captured the league title, the victory could not be classified as an upset as St. Brieux â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? and Annaheim came into the final with matching 4-1 records. St. Brieux came into the final as the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top team after picking up a 4034 win over Annaheim on Feb. 7. Despite losing in their previous meeting just three weeks prior, Annaheim was unfazed and attacked their opponents hard, eventually wearing them down enough to pull out a 39-31 win. Junior Boys North West League The Junior Boys North West League featured another St. Brieux vs. Annaheim contest as the two teams battled for the junior boys title. After rolling through the regular season with a perfect 8-0 record, St. Brieux made quick work of Annaheim in the final winning 79-63, giving each school one league championship. Junior Boys Central League The final league to wrap up their league season last week was the Junior Boys Central League, who pitted Middle Lake against St. Augustine Eights. Middle Lake rolled through the season posting a perfect 5-0 record, while St. Augustine Eights came into the final with a record of 4-1. After a nail biting final that pitted two evenly matched teams, it was Middle Lake who emerged as the victors picking up a 50-45 win. With most leagues now finished teams will turn their attention to districts and conferences.
