Farmers vote to keep Wheat Board

With harvest in Saskatchewan nearing 70 per cent completion in many areas, and with some producers already having their crops in the bin, it’s getting to that time when farmers can relax a little, and enjoy another spectacular harvest sunset. This photo, taken and submitted by Keith Braun, was snapped during harvesting operations on the Ken Braun farm, east of Govan, about a week ago. Keith has a great eye for wildlife and scenery, and we always look forward to his photo submissions. For more news on the crop situation, see the Crop Report on page 10.

Enrolment up at Nokomis School   Coming almost a year after a failed attempt by Horizon School Division to put Nokomis School under review again, news of a fall student count of 55 at the school is good news for the community.   With a total of four students in Grade 12 this year, and a large number of pre-schoolers in the community, the prospects are good for the enrolment numbers staying in the 50 plus range for the foreseeable future. Reports indicate that 21 students are enrolled in playschool this fall. The flow-through from playschool to Kindergarten to Grade 1 can be as high as 50 per cent per year. If these numbers play out, there could well be a net increase of ten students in the fall of 2012.

  “Although enrolment tends to fluctuate throughout the year, we are pleased to see the increasing interest in the pre-school program and are hopeful this may translate into higher student numbers in the mid to long term,” Nokomis School Principal Ken Koenig told Last Mountain Times.   Horizon School Division had placed Nokomis School under review last fall, with the possible outcomes being class discontinuance, or even school closure. The review was later officially cancelled when it was determined that the School Division had not followed the proper procedures in placing the school under review.  -LMT staff

  Tens of thousands of Western Canadian farmers have sent a clear message to Ottawa, demanding the Canadian Wheat Board single-desk marketing system be retained. Results of the CWB’s plebiscite, released last week, show a strong majority of farmers want to maintain their ability to market wheat and barley through a single-desk system. Sixty-two per cent of respondents voted in favour of retaining the single desk for wheat and 51 per cent voted to retain it for barley. A total of 38,261 farmers submitted mail-in ballots in the plebiscite, a participation rate of 56 per cent – on par with the last three federal elections and higher than many municipal and provincial elections.   “Farmers have spoken. Their message is loud and clear, and the government must listen,” said Allen Oberg, chair of the CWB’s farmer-controlled board of directors. “Western Canadian producers have voted to keep their single-desk marketing system for wheat and barley. They cannot be ignored.We will not sit back and watch this government steamroll over farmers. We are going to stand our ground and fight for farmers.”   The federal government plans to remove the CWB single desk by August 1, 2012. Minister Gerry Ritz has announced that enabling legislation will be introduced this fall, also removing the current legal requirement that such a change first be approved by Prairie farmers through an official plebiscite. The CWB’s plebiscite was conducted to give producers a voice through what the CWB termed to be a fair and democratic process.   Oberg said the plebiscite results show that the federal government is out of touch with farmers. “For months, Minister Ritz has been claiming that the recent federal election was a mandate for the government to dismantle the CWB. Now we know otherwise. There is no mandate from farmers to strip away their marketing power. The CWB’s board of directors is calling on the Government of Canada to respect the decision of farmers. The high participation rate leaves no doubt about what farmers want.”   MNP, a chartered accountancy and business advisory firm, coordinated the plebiscite and tabulated the results.

The Nokomis Kinsmen Park was the scene of an official opening celebration over the noon hour on Wednesday, September 14. A large crowd gathered at the Park to witness the ribbon-cutting ceremony as Nokomis Beautification Committee representative Erin Patterson (left) and Nokomis Mayor Fred Wright officiated. The official opening of the Gazebo also kicked off the fundraising drive which has a goal of raising $25,000 to purchase a new playstructure for Kinsmen Park. “I’m very pleased to take part in this official opening and kick-off,” Mayor Wright said. “It’s exciting to see our community come together to support this worthy cause, and on behalf of the Town of Nokomis, I wish the organizers success in their efforts.” More photos on page 8.

by The below article was originally published in the October 14, 2008 issue of Last Mountain Times.

Exercising our aging brains, we are told, is just as important as exercising our bodies. While there are numerous ways to perform mental calisthenics, a favourite form for many is the crossword puzzle. Some people have also taken to sudokus, but to me they are the equivalent of heavy weight lifting, totally beyond me. I’m pretty good at crosswords, though. I have picked up so much information from them over the years, my mind is loaded with miscellaneous facts doing deep knee bends and sit-ups. For one thing, I have acquired an outstanding grasp of foreign languages. I am fluent in Spanish words like dias, sala and casa. I can greet you in Latin or Hawaiian or say goodbye in French, German, Italian or Japanese. As well, I am familiar with anatomy. I know that tibia is a leg bone and ulna is an arm bone and I even know the difference between ilium, which is a bone, and ileum, which is something disgusting somewhere in our intestines. But that’s only scratching the surface of my vast store of knowledge. There is hardly a creature of the crossword animal world that I cannot identify, from the Assam silkworm to the Tibetan Yak. I am equally well versed in

history, able to come up with the Nina, the Pinta or the Santa Maria without a moment’s hesitation. While I admit to sometimes having to fill in other squares to dredge up the name of a Sumerian or Polynesian deity, I have no problem with Odin or Thor, Eos, Ops or Ares. Another area of my expertise is geography. It was never my best subject in school, but thanks to crossword puzzles, I now know that the longest river in Chile is the Loa. Even astronomy is not beyond me. The brightest star in Cygnus? A snap – it’s Deneb of course. Sometimes, though, I wish my brain would forget that Elon is the son of Zebulon and tell me where I left my glasses.

Provincial news briefs Recruiting long term care and rural nurses If you fund them, they will come! Saskatoon Health Region, the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses and the Ministry of Health are sending that message to registered nurses (RNs) across the country. Britney Sirota, a recently graduated RN who accepted a position at Wadena Hospital, heard the call. “I love working in a rural facility,” says Sirota. “Every day I see or do something new. I’ve talked with some nurses I graduated with, and I am definitely doing a lot more than most of them. In rural, you don’t work on just one specific unit. I really feel that I can take on almost anything now. It has given me a huge confidence boost.” The Region, Ministry and SUN have come together to attract RNs like Sirota to rural and long term care facilities across the Saskatoon Health Region through special funding arrangements that include: a three-year, $7,500 return for service agreement for rural sites; a two-year $2,500 return for service agreement for long term care sites; a one-time injection of $2,000 for facilities looking at retention initiatives; professional development bursaries, and six-week, full-time mentorship opportunities for newly graduating RNs who want the support of a mentor in their new positions at a rural or long term care site. “These incentives are a true collaboration in every sense,” says Shelley Lofstrom, Manager of Workforce Planning for Saskatoon Health Region. “We worked with SUN to determine what will work best to attract the best RNs to rural and long-term care, two areas already identified as needing more registered nurses. We have received a tremendous number of inquiries already and a number of nurses have already been approved for the funding.” A committee of Region and SUN members identified four key initiatives to assist in recruitment and retention and help build a culture of nursing excellence together: rural nursing, long term care nursing, healthy and respectful workplaces, and education, training and professional development. Each of the four identified areas has specific programs in place and funded through a one-time grant of $881,915 from the Ministry of Health. University of Saskatchewan enrolment up Fall 2011 enrolment is up at the University of Saskatchewan for the third consecutive year. To date, enrolment has increased 3.5 per cent over the same date last year. This increase will bring the student population to well in excess of 20,000 once fall term registration is complete on September 19. “These preliminary results point to the growing reputation of our university, the quality of our academic programs, and the success of our recruitment and retention efforts,” said Alison Pickrell, director of enrolment. “Growing numbers of Aboriginal, international and graduate

students confirm the U of S is a destination of choice for students across the province, country and world.” Over the past three years, the university has launched a number of innovative new programs, recruited more actively in Saskatchewan, Western Canada and internationally, and improved its efforts to retain students. The U of S has also invested heavily in upgrading a number of student service facilities on campus, including student residences, and food outlets. “We have planned for gradual enrolment increases over the past several years,” said Russell Isinger, U of S registrar. “Both the university’s new residences and the newly expanded Place Riel Student Centre were designed to meet the needs of a growing university community and to improve the student experience.”

Jeworski commits to highway improvements Last Mountain-Touchwood NDP Candidate Don Jeworski says if elected he will see to it that a new NDP government upgrades a number of local roads. “Although the Sask Party promised much while in Opposition, the reality is in government they have done very little in terms of maintaining and improving roads and highways in rural Saskatchewan,” Jeworski says. “This is in spite of the fact that the province has seen has record revenues from resources such as potash, oil and gas over the past few years.” Jeworski says Highways 15, 22, 52 and 310 in the Last Mountain-Touchwood constituency are all in a sad state of disrepair. “Some of the most dangerous, ill-repaired highways in the province are located in Last Mountain-Touchwood,” Jeworski said. “If I am elected as your

MLA in an NDP government, we will rebuild and resurface more roads. In particular, Highway 22 from Southey west to Highway 20, and Highway 310 from Ituna to Balcarres are in urgent need of repair. “ In a telephone interview with Last Mountain Times, Jeworski said the highways mentioned are a “real mess” and very dangerous for vehicle operators, especially school bus drivers. He said he has heard talk of people being worried about sending their children to school over the bad highways. “In my door-to-door campaigning so far, the concern I hear most often is about the sad condition of our local secondary highways” Jeworski said. “And while people appreciate the small amount of work and increased maintenance that has been done over the past few months, it falls far short of what is really needed.”

Giants and curiosities

Mary Strudwick had these two curious vegetables on display for residents of the Nokomis Health Centre last week. The gigantic red beet, looking more like some sort of mutant sea monster, weighed several pounds and measured 9 inches tall, and 19 inches in circumference at its largest part. Upon closeexamination, it looks like conjoined twins. And the curious pair of carrots seem to need a tag that says: “Just cuddly friends”. The vegetables were grown by Lois Mortenson of Nokomis.

A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the four pups and set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of a little boy. “Mister,” he said. “I want to buy one of your puppies.” “Well,” said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat of the back of his neck, “These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money.” The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. “I’ve got 39 cents. Is that enough to take a look?” “Sure,” said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle. “Here, Dolly!” he called. Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse. Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller. Down the ramp it slid. Then in a somewhat awkward manner, the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up. “I want that one,” the little boy said, pointing to runt. The farmer knelt down at the

boy’s side and said, Son, you don’t want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like the other dogs would. With that, the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe. Looking back up at the farmer he said, “you see sir, I don’t run too well myself, and he will need someone who understands.” With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the pup. Holding it carefully, he handed it to the little boy. “How much?” asked the little boy. “No charge,” answered the farmer, “there’s no charge for love.” The world is full of people who need someone who understands. Do we look at people that are different and pity them? Or do we just pass them by and don’t care. Jesus did not pass them by or pity them. Jesus washed their feet, he spoke love to the prostitute and the tax collector and welcomed the little children. And as we all know, there was no charge for his love. It was given freely at the cross. So until we walk a mile in our neighbors shoes, we must try to understand their journey. Remember! There is no charge for love. Mary Anne Grand member of Raymore United Church

National Memorial Service The RCMP held its National Memorial Service on September 11 at the RCMP Academy, ‘Depot’ Division. The ceremony honoured members, special constables and auxiliary constables who lost their lives in response to an operational policing duty in which there was the element of life-threatening risk. Two additional names have been inscribed on the Cenotaph, the Honour Roll and the Memorial Wall Plaques this year, bringing the total number of fallen members to 228 since the creation of the North-West Mounted Police in 1873. The two names are: Honour Roll # 227, Special Constable Andrew Ooyoumut. Special Constable Ooyoumut served from June 1, 1946 to July 21, 1954. He drowned in the Kikatavyuk River, Nunavut (formerly known as Northwest Territories), while on special duty. Honour Roll # 228, Constable Michael Bernard Potvin. Constable Potvin served from May 4, 2009 to July 30, 2010. He drowned when the RCMP boat he was in capsized on the Stewart River in Mayo, Yukon. As expressed by Commissioner William J.S. Elliott: “Today is a time for us to comfort one another and to give thanks for the lives of the wonderful people who we have lost, and who will always remember and honour – whether they died last year or 55 years ago. So although today we remember, and in part we grieve – as we must always when we are reminded of the price that some have paid – we also celebrate their achievement, their gift, [and] their contribution to our today and tomorrow, to our history and our future.” The Memorial Service was attended by family and friends of fallen members along with dignitaries including His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General and Commander-in-

Chief of Canada; and His Honour the Honourable Dr. Gordon L. Barnhart, Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan. They were joined by veterans, cadets and members from across the country. The “Depot” Division Cadet Band and the RCMP Regina and ‘K’ Division Pipes and Drums Bands were also on hand to pay tribute to the fallen members. Commissioner Elliott presented RCMP Memorial mementos to the relatives of the fallen members at a private ceremony held the evening before. The front of the memento – a sterling silver medallion – is engraved with the crest of the RCMP on a police badge with the fallen member’s regimental number, all surrounded by maple leaves. The reverse side is engraved with rank, name and service dates. Attempted theft of ATV On the early morning of September 9, 2011, the Southey RCMP were called to a farm along Highway 22 between Southey and Cupar. Someone had attempted to steal an ATV and it was later left abandoned along the highway. It was recovered by the owner. RCMP suspect the thief may have been spooked by a motorist passing by. Anyone with information is asked to contact Southey RCMP. Missing visitor found RCMP officers in Kamsack and area dealt with an unusual missing persons case last week, and although the missing individual has been located, there are still a lot of unanswered questions surrounding the incident. Early in the week, Kamsack RCMP put out a notice that they were seeking the public’s assistance in locating missing tourist from the Dominican Republic. Police say 50 year old Santos Nunez arrived in Canada on a visitor visa on September 10. During the second day of his visit he jumped from a moving vehicle and ran into the bush near the community of Arran, 90 km northeast of Yorkton. An extensive ground and aerial search of the area resulted in no further sightings of Nunez. Police reported that Nunez was thought to be carrying a significant amount of

cash, and that he may be planning to travel to Montana. Then, late Thursday, September 15, Kamsack and Swan River RCMP reported that

Santos Nunez they had located Santos Nunez in a field on the Saskatchewan Manitoba Border just northwest of Benito, Manitoba. Police said was being medically assessed and treated for dehydration prior to being turned over to the Canada Border Service Agency where he will be detained on warrants issued by that agency. The Kamsack RCMP thanked both the public and media for their assistance in this matter. Fire fatalities On Monday, September 12 at approximately 1:30 p.m., members of the Hudson Bay RCMP received a call to a residential fire on an acreage two miles North of Hudson Bay on Highway 9. Attending to the fire scene along with members of the Hudson Bay Detachment was the Hudson Bay Fire Department as well as Hudson Bay EMS. Upon arrival of Emergency Personnel, the residence, an older style mobile home, was observed to be entirely engulfed in flames. Outside of the residence were three adults, one of them was an adult female who was visibly distraught and suffering injuries from the fire. The fire was extinguished over the next several hours, but the residence was completely destroyed. Emergency Personnel located the remains of two small children who lived in the residence. The children were twin girls, aged two years, 11 months. Names of the deceased were not being released, and the cause of the fire is not known. The Provincial Coroner is involved in the investigation.

Saskatchewan had three winners at this year’s Canadian Country Music Awards, held in Hamilton, Ontario over the weekend over the weekend of September 9 and 10. The first Saskatchewanian to land a trophy was Langenburg’s Jess Moskaluke. He was selected to perform in the New Artist Showcase, receiving one of the only eight coveted spots offered each year. A panel of jurors at the showcase event on Friday night at the Hamilton Convention Centre adjudicated all the performances over the course of the evening, and selected Jess to receive the 2011 CCMA New Artist Showcase Award, commenting that they were greatly impressed with the caliber of this year’s performers. “I am really excited to represent my home province at such a prestigious event. I always have a great time performing, and this being my first time attending the CCMAs, I felt I had an extra-high-energy performance! This was the best ‘first CCMAs’ ever!” Jess stated. Next to be called to the podium were Bart McKay Productions, of Saskatoon. They received Recording Studio of the Year, and Jay Richards of CJWW Radio in Saskatoon, received Music Director of the Year-Major Market. It marks the fourth winning year for Bart McKay Productions, having received this recognition in 2010, 2009 and 2007. It was the first CCMA win for Richards. The awards were handed out during the Industry Brunch and Awards at the Hamilton Convention Centre on Saturday morning.

lights the degree to which Saskatchewan has become a leading destination for RVers of all ages,” said Go RVing Canada Spokesperson Alana Fontaine.   Earlier this year, Go RVing Canada released provincial sales data for Saskatchewan and the month of March 2011, demonstrating that RV sales in the province jumped an impressive 19.3 per cent this year over last. While consumer prices in most other industries have been on the increase in recent months with relatively high inflation, RV purchase prices have remained stable for several years.

LAST MOUNTAIN TIMES 7

Remember when...

Bulyea News …you could wander into an FW Woolworth Store with a dollar in your pocket, settle down at the Lunch Counter for lunch, and walk away with 15 cents change? That’s right – Baked Ham and Cheese Toasted Triple-Decker Sandwich: 60 cents; a slice of Apple Pie for dessert: 15 cents; and a King-Size Coca-Cola to wash it all down: 10 cents. Total: 85 cents. Let’s put things into proper perspective: in 1957 the minimum wage in most western Canadian provinces was about 58 cents per hour ...about $1200 a year (less deductions) for someone who worked 40 hours a week. So, spending about an hour and half’s income on lunch in 1957 is about the same as spending about $14 on lunch today.

A poacher isn’t a hunter   Poachers are not hunters. They are thieves who harm the wild animal populations of this country and who spoil the sport for legitimate hunters. The wildlife of this country is a legacy that belongs to us all, one that was handed down to us by our ancestors. As such, it is our duty to preserve this heritage for future generations.   The harmful effects of poaching are numerous and put the future of sport hunting in danger. Poaching for commercial profit is, without doubt, the most harmful form of this illegal activity. The beautiful buck with his imposing antlers, the pride of any hunter or photographer, is only a dollar sign in the eyes of the poacher. This also applies to the doe and her baby, neither of which are safe from a poacher’s traps.   Over the last few years, the deer population has been re-

®

duced by more than half in certain areas of the country. This is thought to be due to two consecutive winters of heavy snowfall that have had disastrous consequences for these animals. In addition to fatal weather conditions, predation, road accidents, and diseases,

the pressure of poaching has only slowed the renewal of the deer population. It is of great importance that all responsible hunters take a stand against illegal hunting by reporting poaching to the appropriate au­thorities. Poaching is stealing.

Help your children love school

  The Between Friends Quilt Guild met in Bulyea on September 10 for their first meeting of the fall season, and they had an exciting day diving into the Rolling Ray of Sonshine Quilt Truck.   This fall, the truck is packed full of fabric, patterns, and notions which the Quilters spent most of the day inspecting. There were also a fair number of visitors who popped by to check out the wares, and enjoy a coffee and a visit. On the business side of things, plans for the upcoming quilting season were discussed, including the Fall Retreat in early November, and the Annual Quilt Show in Duval in mid-November. The Quilters next scheduled meeting is in October. -info submitted by Linda Smith

  Does your child complain of a stomach ache every morning, hoping he’ll have a day at home? Does she drag her heels as she gets on the school bus? Children who resist going to school might not be seeing its relevance in their lives, or they might be unsure about their abilities. As a parent, your attitude and your actions play a vital role in how your children feel about learning. Here are five ways to get your kid feeling better about school:   1. Marks aren’t everything. Children hate being judged solely on their marks. It’s true that results are important, but above all, take an interest in what they are learning.   2. Make learning fun. If your children are not succeeding because they find a subject boring, try and find out what exactly is boring them. Perhaps there’s a way to personalize the learning method or to find another angle that can make the subject more interesting; interactive studying is just one example. Remember that it’s normal to prefer one subject over

Your children will enjoy school a lot more if they realize that school is important to you. Be sure to attend parent-teacher meetings at the beginning of the year, and consider becoming a volunteer for some school activities.   4. Routine is important. Help your children get into

the habit of doing homework at the same time every day. Being regular will make the inevitable work seem less painful than panicking at the last minute, such as before bed or at breakfast time the next morning. 5. Press the “pause” button. Ensure that there is some free time in your children’s schedules so they can relax, play, and reduce their stress levels.

ment really believes in democracy and if it really does respect farmers, then it will listen. It’s that simple.”   Ken Larsen, a Benalto, Alberta-area barley producer, said the fact that farmers voted in such high numbers, is a strong message in itself – especially considering the federal government’s attempts to undermine the vote. “There’s been an ongoing campaign of misinformation and bullying – including efforts by Canada’s agriculture minister to discourage farmers from voting. Not only is this undemocratic, it’s deeply disturbing and something every Canadian should be concerned about.” WCWGA rejects results of vote   The Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association completely rejects the results of the Canadian Wheat Board’s vote. “This vote was an illegitimate exercise,” says Kevin Bender, President of the Wheat Growers. “The results should be given no credibility whatsoever.”   “We urge the federal government to ignore this meaningless survey and move full speed ahead toward giving us our grain marketing freedom,” says Bender. “We are very excited about the opportunities that will be created under an open market.” GGC says move on   The Grain Growers of Canada (GGC) says the Canadian Wheat Board has now wasted over four months of valuable time trying to overturn the Conservatives long standing campaign promise to give prairie farmers the freedom to market their own wheat and barley.   “It is unfortunate that a narrow majority on the Board of the CWB continues to refuse to let their management

team get to work on a new business model, while according to their own survey released today, over 20,000 farmers are looking for marketing freedom,” says GGC spokesman Stephen Vandervalk. “The CWB really needs to move on and get moving ahead with their transition plan.” Barley Growers say results not credible   “The Western Barley Growers Association (WBGA) sees the results of the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) plebiscite as not being credible” says president, Brian Otto.   “The CWB and this plebiscite cannot be trusted to fairly represent producer’s views. Every CWB survey and vote conducted in the last ten years has shown that barley producers want an open and commercial barley market. To ask barley producers to believe that 51 per cent of them voted in favour of retaining the single desk shows that this plebiscite had significant flaws and is not credible,” comments Otto. Related news   A Federal Court judge has rejected a motion from the federal government to dismiss a case launched in June by the Friends of the CWB, a group of concerned Prairie farmers. The Friends case asks for judicial review of the government’s intention to dismantle the CWB without consulting western Canadian farmers through a plebiscite as required by Section 47.1 of the CWB Act. The Federal Court ruling, issued in Winnipeg on September 9, also rejected a request by the government to have the case dealt with solely in writing, as opposed to an oral hearing in open court. A hearing date for the case has not been set.

AgNotes

by Calvin Daniels

  It was interesting to see a story about the recent Cairns Group ministerial meeting in Saskatoon marking the first time group members discussed ways scientific innovations and rules-based trade may help meet global food security objectives.   The idea of food security is one we should consider for a variety of reasons.   On one hand, the basic idea is one we should generally embrace. Safe food is important for us all since food is one of life’s essential.   And on the other hand the more rules established around food security, the greater the red tape and cost farmers are likely to face in marketing their crops and livestock.   We have deemed food traceability a key aspect of food safety and that means back from the kitchen table to the farm gate, and while the processing sector will be able to pass on its costs to consumers, farmers are not likely to see new costs factored into what they receive from the marketplace. There is, however, a growing question about whether we are maybe going so far in establishing rules we are about to lose a huge part of our food heritage in the process.   I think about one of my favourite shows on television right now regarding food; Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. The host travels the world eating the weirdest foods he can find, possum and raccoon in the Ozarks, whole deep fried chicks and partially incubated eggs in

Orient, worms, bugs, tarantulas and in almost every country, some of his favoured foods are found from street vendors.   That has always been something I have thought my city of Yorkton lacked, a street vendor selling perogies and hotdogs. Of course to operate such a business now in Canada is something where people need to be ready to work through a tonne of regulations to make it a go.   And it goes farther. A rib barbecue competition at the local summer fair took a long visit from health inspectors to get the go ahead. Yes safety is important, but backyard barbecues are not exactly alien science competitors were foreign to.   An upcoming cultural event in the city isn’t sure cultural foods will be part of the event because the regulations are simply daunting. Neighbourhood and community pot luck suppers, and even the farmer’s market sale of cooked goods is becoming ever more difficult.   Do we need rules? Well to say no would be anarchist talk, but at the same time I have attended a lot of rural fairs and sports days eating cold cut dinners, potato salad with eggs and salad dressing included, and I don’t recall an upset stomach, and that was years before most of the current rule regime existed.   I will grant food when a youngster might well have been safer in the sense that the potatoes in the salad likely came from the family garden of the cook, and the eggs from their chicken coop. The control over the food we ate was much more in our hands.   We knew if a pig was sick,

and never butchered that animal in the fall, when we actually picked the animal out of the pen, shot it humanely and lifted it with a block and tackle to butcher ourselves. It was the same with chickens. And, most of the vegetables we ate came from the garden, canned, frozen or saved in cold storage for winter.   Much of the fruit was even gathered; blueberries, saskatoons and chokecherries in the wild, currents, raspberries, rhubarb, gooseberries and strawberries from the garden.   I grew up eating food I helped raise and put up for winter.   Now, I can tell you in my own case I haven’t grown a thing to eat in more than a decade, and with the exception of the occasional farmer’s market purchase from an area producer, I rely on food grown by others often hundreds, if not thousands of miles away, processed by others, trucked by others, and handled by far too many others before I eat it.   So I am left to wonder if rules that impact barbecue events, cultural food sales at local events, potluck suppers is what is needed for safer food?   Or, do we need to take more personal responsibility for our own food, growing more of it, processing more of it, and cooking more of it?

Crop Report THE WEEKLY

  Significant harvest progress was made due to a week of great weather. Saskatchewan producers now have more than 60 per cent of the 2011 crop combined and 30 per cent swathed or ready to straight cut, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report. The five year provincial average for this time of year is 47 per cent combined and 30 per cent ready to straightcut.   Although the overall numbers are up, harvest progress varies across the province. The southwest and southeast have 71 per cent combined, the west-central and east-central regions have 57 per cent and 56 per cent combined, respectively; the northeast has 47 per cent combined and the northwest 39 per cent. Ninety-two per cent of the lentils, 94 per cent of the field peas, 56 per cent of the durum, 53 per cent of the spring wheat and canola and six per cent of the flax have been combined.

Serving the Last Mountain area since 1908 Crop & Livestock Solutions

  Across the province, topsoil moisture on cropland is rated as two per cent surplus, 69 per cent adequate, 26 per cent short and three per cent very short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as two per cent surplus, 63 per cent adequate, 33 per cent short and two per cent very short.   Freezing temperatures were recorded throughout most of the province on September 13, which will have some effect on the lateseeded crops. Recent high winds rolled swaths around in some areas. In general, crop yields are reported to be average to above-average with the exception of the areas in the south and southeast that received excess moisture in the spring. Crop quality is good on the crop that has been combined to date.   Farmers are busy harvesting, seeding winter cereals, hauling bales and controlling weeds on unseeded acres.

Softer, gentler NHL season ahead?   It could be a softer, more gentle National Hockey League when the 2011-12 season gets down to business in early October. No, the players won’t be wearing white skates with picks, nor will pink show up on any uniforms, but the forces that drive the best professional league in the world are leaning towards more slap, less punch, more push, less crunch.   Don Cherry, he of the loudmouth opinion that a team first has to show its physical superiority before it can hope to succeed on the scoreboard, probably won’t like this evolution we’re almost certain to see. Conn Smythe, whose famous utterance “If you can’t beat ‘em in the alley, you can’t beat ‘em on the ice” has resonated through generations of hockey, might just roll over in his grave.   But... things are getting out of hand and finally, some intelligence is being wrapped in the package that NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is trying to sell to North American hockey fans. For one thing, blows to the head are going to be dealt with harshly, and it’s about time. Sidney Crosby, the game’s No. 1 attraction, won’t start the season due to a head-crashing concussion he suffered last January. He has had nearly 10 months for it to heal and he’s still not there. The NHL can’t take the chance that more young stars may be ‘head-hunted’ too, so

talk about the head-shot rule will dominate the 2011-12 season.   There is also backroom NHL chatter about the elimination of fighting, which would be the game’s biggest change since the rover position was eliminated. The summer deaths of Derek Boogaard, Rick Rypien and Wade Belak, all of whom were star members of the NHL’s Fight Club, has got tongues wagging that perhaps the game doesn’t need fighting anymore. We don’t see it in the Olympics, and it’s rare to see it in the NHL playoffs – both pretty good stages for tremendous hockey – so why does it permeate the 82game schedule? Because there is a fan element that goes to a game to see blood as a race car ‘fan’ goes to Indy hoping to see a 10-car pileup. But why cater to that element?   Believe it, changes are coming. If they soften the game a bit, so concussions are rare, great. If a fight doesn’t break out, who cares? Let’s allow the best to perform without having to worry about death and brain destruction.   • Comedy writer Jim Barach: Tennis great Roger Federer says “it’s been hard to watch” his friend Tiger Woods struggle with his game and personal life. He says it would have been much better if it had been Rafael Nadal.   • From Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times: “Plans are underway to squeeze in another 6,600 seats behind Lambeau Field’s south end zone in time

for the 2013 season. Hey, they don’t call them the Packers for nothing.”   • Gene Wojciechowski, ESPN.com, after Green Bay’s 42-34 win in the 2011 NFL opener: “The only Packer not to do the Lambeau Leap was Vince Lombardi’s statue. Otherwise, it looked like a high-jump competition.”   • Greg Cote, Miami Herald: “Rory McIlroy has won golf’s U.S. Open but never been ranked No. 1. His tennis-star girlfriend, Caroline Wozniacki, is ranked No. 1 but has never won a major. They make such an imperfect couple.”   • Mike Bianchi, Orlando Sentinel: “Houston Texans star running back Arian Foster is getting hammered because he put the MRI photo of his pulled hamstring out on Twitter. Personally, I’m just glad he didn’t injure his groin.”   • Dwight Perry offers his ‘Tweet of the week’: “From jacko2323: “Maryland’s uniforms are so bad that a Miami player just said, ‘You couldn’t pay me to wear those things... well actually you could’.”   • Headline at Sportspickle. com: “Tim Tebow now ranked No. 1 in NFL jerseys handed down to younger cousins.”   • Brad Rock of Salt Lake City’s Desert News, on Tulsa receiver Damaris Johnson’s girlfriend, a Macy’s clerk, selling him $1,238.75 in merchandise for 34 cents: “Rumour has it Johnson is now looking to find a girlfriend who works at a

The Public Player’s Club allows a golfer to play golf courses, track their handicap, without h a v i n g to purchase a membership at a golf club.   All three options allow a golfer an opportunity to have an Official Handicap.

ports section

  Q: Do I have to be a member of a golf club to get an official handicap?   A: The answer is yes and no. This is not as confusing as it sounds because Golf Canada and the Provincial Golf Associations allow golfers options. 1) A golfer may join a traditional member golf club, (say The Willows GCC, Royal Regina GC or Kelvington Golf Club) pay membership dues and get handicap privileges. 2) In Saskatchewan, a group of 25 people or more could create a Category 2 Member Club, which is a club without real-estate (work group or Men’s/Women’s Section at a Municipal golf course). This group would form its own Handicapping Committee who would monitor the group as outlined in the Handicap Manual. 3) Join the Public Player’s Club allowing a golfer an option to

Motor Speedway: “Or as rednecks call that, the trifecta.”   • Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle, after Tiger Woods said of his swing, ‘I can fix it.’: “So what’s he waiting for?

Psychology for Living Like begets like   Sometimes there is a lot of wisdom in old sayings. There is one in particular which is very powerful if we really think about it and begin to practise it in our daily lives. Like begets like. Translated, this can mean that anger begets anger, love begets love, kindness begets kindness, and so on.   If someone lets you in when the traffic is very heavy, don’t you feel more inclined to let someone else in? If you’re in the midst of a conflict with your partner, isn’t it more likely that you’ll snap at the kids? It seems pretty basic, but it is quite amazing how we can forget this basic principle, and when we do things can get pretty weird. Then we wonder why things are so messed up, and why it seems like such a struggle to get what we want.   Consider the example of parents who fight a lot, and criticize one another. They may have an ongoing battle with their children, who are fighting with one another all the time. Conflict and aggression beget conflict and aggression. The adolescent who complains that parents do not listen and don’t understand them, may at the same time be totally closed to understanding the parent’s feelings. Parents who feel their children have

by Gwen Randall-Young absolutely no respect for them, may well be dealing with their children in a way that is also disrespectful.   A man who is angry with his partner may become cool and withdrawn. She senses this and withdraws in response. He complains that she shows no warmth or affection. They are in a deadlock; a no-win situation. When one or the other begins to melt a little, the whole thing shifts.   Too often we allow ourselves to go into a state of emotional contraction. The feeling becomes one of “Why should I give in?”, or “Why should I be the one to change?” The answer really depends of what you want. Would you rather be right, or be happy?  

  Each year the Ministry of Education awards scholarships to 500 students from across province through the Saskatchewan General Proficiency Awards program. The $400 scholarships are awarded to students in order to reward excellence and to encourage the pursuit of post-secondary education. Last week 21 winners from Horizon School Division for the 2010 – 2011 school year were announced.. The students were selected based on merit, as they successfully met the criteria of achieving high average marks in seven 30-level courses. There were no winners from schools in the immediate Last Mountain area.

  The week of September 16 to 23 is Biotech Week in Saskatchewan, Canada’s agricultural biotechnology capital with 30 per cent of the Canadian industry located in the province. Biotech Week is held each year in conjunction with National Biotech Week observed across Canada.   “National Biotech Week is an opportunity for Saskatchewan to raise awareness of the advances that are being made here in the biosciences,” Ag-West Bio Inc. President and CEO Wilf Keller said. “Vaccines, crop improvement, diagnostics, industrial bioproducts, natural health products and genomic technologies; these are just a few of the areas where we really excel, both in research and more and more, in the commercialization of technologies.”   Events being held during Biotech Week include the grand opening of the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization’s newest facility, the International Vaccine Centre, and an educational outreach day at the University of Saskatchewan on September 23.
