It was a big day in Nokomis last Thursday, as the Regina CTV Home Town Tour bus rolled into town to wave the CTV ﬂag and to give the community a boost. Local organizers had a busy afternoon planned for Danelle Boivin and Dan McIntosh from CTV Regina, as they toured them around the town, from the noon lunch at the community hall, to a museum tour, and a visit to the school for a pie-throw. The day ended with a community hot dog and hamburger BBQ at Kinsmen Kiddieland Park, where the two CTV personalities did “live, on-air” interviews with Lylie Herman, Last Mountain Times’ Nokomis correspondent, mayor-elect David Mark and Nokomis Rec.

Former L-G Sylvia Fedoruk passes Former Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governor Sylvia Fedoruk passed away September 26 at her home in Saskatoon. Fedoruk, Saskatchewan’s ﬁrst female Lieutenant Governor, was 85 years old. She served as Lieutenant Governor from 1988 through 1994. “Sylvia Fedoruk was the embodiment of Saskatchewan innovation and spirit and an inspiration to all she met,” Premier Brad Wall said. “In March of 2011, I had the great honour of chatting with Dr. Fedoruk at the launch of the University of Saskatchewan’s Canadian Centre
for Nuclear Innovation. She reminded me of the history of nuclear medicine in Saskatchewan of which she was a pioneer.” Born in Canora and graduating from the University of Saskatchewan, Dr. Fedoruk was the sole woman on the research team that developed the world’s ﬁrst Cobalt 60 cancer therapy unit in 1951. In addition to her distinguished career in nuclear medicine and education, Dr. Fedoruk received numerous awards including the Saskatchewan Order of Merit, the Ofﬁcer of the Order of Canada and the Distinguished Canadian Award.

opinions – letters – comments
letters to the editor Note: the following letter was received by Editor Dave Degenstien on September 24 regarding the front page article in the September 18 issue of Last Mountain Times: ‘Strasbourg’s green space for sale?’ The writer, Strasbourg Mayor Carol Schultz has given her permission to reproduce the letter here. Dear Editor: I wish to address some of the points raised in the article entitled ‘Strasbourg’s Green Space for Sale?’ in the September 18, 2012 edition of the Last Mountain Times. As a member of Town Council, I ﬁnd that the article is slanted in a negative direction, which casts Town Council and its activities in a poor light. This meeting was granted front page coverage; therefore, the event should be given a thorough and accurate retelling. However, the last 10 minutes of an hour-long meeting (the discussion on the condominium development) was given the most importance. Unfortunately, this condominium development discussion was given a negative slant, and made up the majority of the article. The rest of the meeting was discussed in little detail on page nine, which is not an accurate portrayal of the full content of the meeting. The meeting itself had a very positive outcome – namely that several town issues were openly discussed and communicated to town residents – which I do not think was accurately reﬂected in the tone of the article. Many citizens were concerned that the local Last Mountain Times staff (the article was signed off as ‘LMT Staff’ instead of ‘Editor’) would write such a negative article about the meeting, especially considering that the condominium development discussion was such a small part in the grand scheme of the evening. Finally, with regard to the condominium development, I would like to reiterate a few points which were raised at the public meeting. First, Town Council is required to follow the established by-laws with respect to the proposed development site. The site is currently Town park property, and therefore any sale transaction for this land would require the standard advertisement and consultation periods. The process would also include a public meeting at which residents could voice their support or concerns for the project. Information regarding these consultations and meetings will be made available at such a time as the project advances to the appropriate stage. Thank you for allowing me to address my concerns. Mayor Carol Schultz Strasbourg Disclaimer: the opinions expressed are those of the writer.
in nature, and as one meeting attendee noted, could have been sent out to taxpayers in a regular newsletter from the Town. The only issue of any signiﬁcant concern or potential controversy (ie: ‘news’) was the discussion concerning the Pioneer Park land, and naturally, that was why it was highlighted above other issues discussed at the meeting. Mayor Schultz will acknowledge, I’m sure, that she was accurately quoted in the article pointing out that there is still a fairly lengthy and detailed process that must be followed by the Town before any ﬁnal decisions or approvals are made. I appreciate Mayor Schultz’s comments, and remind other readers that I welcome their feedback on articles published in the newspaper, or on issues of general or personal concern. -Dave Degenstien, Owner-Publisher-Editor The purpose of a newspaper has always been to keep people informed of events around the world as well as those in our backyard ...and serve no one but its readers, the general public – not always telling them what they want to know, but what they need to know. Do not underestimate the public. -The Seattle Times
Dear Editor: I seem to be the only one that noticed that this town was not ﬂying a Canadian Flag above the cenataph by town ofﬁce it took me standing up at a council meeting as well as numerous letters to our town administrator and mayor asking them to show the respect that these fallen heros deserve and it all fell on deaf ears until I called Ottawa who called the legion here and they were shamed into putting a Canadian Flag up and all this was because of small town politics which will come out soon. The Town administrator told me at the council meeting back in April that the town had ordered ﬂags but alas they
never came and not one person not the councilors, mayor or the town administrator or even the members of the RM thought enough to replace the ﬂag. Shame on you all for such a show of disrespect A person should not have to shame the town into doing what is right but I guess I forgot who I was talking to. John Landry, Govan, SK Disclaimer: the opinions expressed are those of the writer.
Editor’s note: Mr. Landry is a candidate for Town Council in Govan in the upcoming municipal elections. His letter is reprinted as received.
TIMES LAST MOUNTAIN welcomes
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Editor’s response: Thank you very much for your feedback and comments. Since the publication of the September 18 article, I have received only two complaints about it: one from Mayor Schultz and the other from Ken Danielson, the chair of the condo development investors group. Other comments I have received have been positive, in terms of thanking the newspaper for bringing an issue to the public’s attention that some seemed to feel was being kept on the ‘down low’ by Strasbourg Town Council. Readers will note, as referenced at the beginning of the story, it was clearly pointed out that the issue of the green space land was raised at the end of the meeting, and was not the entire focus of, or reason for the meeting. The green space portion of the story was 471 words in length. At the bottom of the front page story, it was clearly indicated that there was more about the meeting on page 9, where another approximately 492 words prominently described the remainder of the meeting and discussion that occurred. Although the rather routine ﬁrst hour of the meeting did cover many other issues, they were administrative

Psychology for Living
Listening effectively One of the biggest impediments to good communication is not listening effectively. Just because you have heard the words another has spoken does not mean you understand their meaning, or their feelings. If someone has told you that you just do not understand, there is a very effective strategy you can begin to implement immediately. Listen to what the person is telling you, and get as much information about their position as you can. Ask questions if you need clariﬁcation. For a moment, imagine you are the other person. See if you can convincingly present their point of view, or their side of the argument. Doing this is valuable for

provincial news briefs SGI to offer more veteran plates To further honour the service and sacriﬁces made by Saskatchewan’s veterans, SGI says it is expanding its specialty plate options to offer veteran plates for motorcycles and snowmobiles. Each of the license plates will be a smaller version of the regular-sized license plates, and will portray the same design. The characters will include a “V” followed by three numbers. The plates can also be personalized, as long as the slogan is four characters or fewer. As determined by the Saskatchewan Command of the Royal Canadian Legion, veteran plates are available to any person who has honourably served, or is still serving, as a member of the Canadian Forces for a minimum of three years,
or has served a tour of duty as a member of the Canadian Forces, Reserve Forces, the Merchant Navy, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, another Canadian police force or an allied force. “We appreciate the partnership we’ve had with SGI over the past few years through the veteran license plate program,” Royal Canadian Legion, Saskatchewan Command Provincial President Brent Wignes said. “We are pleased that the Government of Saskatchewan has recognized this opportunity to further pay tribute to our Saskatchewan veterans who have served not only our province, but all of Canada.” The cost of veteran licencse plates is $5, payable to the Legion, to cover the application cost. Personalized plates cost an additional $75 plus GST.
Veterans can apply for the small format plates starting October 1. Seven health regions closing in on surgery wait list targets Seven out of the 10 Saskatchewan health regions that handle operating-room surgeries are within ﬁve per cent of their target this year, offering surgery within six months to all people who need it. The Saskatoon Health Region is not on the list. Updated wait time information shows that in the six-month period ending July 31, 2012, most health regions continued to provide almost all surgeries within six months. Heartland Health Region has met the target and six other health regions are close to hitting the target of providing all surgeries within six months by March 31, 2013. The number of people waiting for surgery ﬂuctuates, based
on the number of people diagnosed and booked for surgery and the number of surgeries performed. Regina Qu’Appelle has experienced a spike in planned orthopaedic surgeries, offsetting gains the health region made in the volume of surgeries performed. Results from a concerted effort to ramp up surgical capacity in the health region won’t show up in wait time reductions for several months. Wait times data continue to show that 97 per cent of prospective surgery patients in Saskatchewan have surgery within 12 months and 89 per cent within six months. There were 2,233 fewer patients waiting for surgery in Saskatchewan on July 31 than on the same date in 2011, a reduction of nine per cent. Province contributes to Juno awards hosting The 2013 JUNO Awards will be held in Regina and Moose Jaw, and the Government of
Page 3 Saskatchewan is providing the 2013 JUNO Awards Host Committee with $1.5 million to help ensure the province’s talent will be showcased on April 15-21, 2013 during this national event. The JUNO celebrations, which recognize artistic and technical achievement in all aspects of Canadian music, offer Saskatchewan performers the chance to step into the national spotlight and perform for music fans and industry professionals. The $1.5 million in funding is to assist in covering the licensing fee required by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in order to host the event. “With Moose Jaw partnering with Regina, people in both cities get to see Canada’s most talented musicians up close and personal,” Moose Jaw Mayor Glenn Hagel said. “Regina has made its mark across Canada for hosting world class events,” Regina Mayor Pat Fiacco added. “Everyone attending the JUNO’s can expect to be welcomed with the charm and warmth our community is known for.” Since their inception in 1970, the JUNO Awards have grown from a single-day event to a weeklong celebration drawing thousands of music fans from across Canada and beyond. Gaming grants provide $2.1 million The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) is providing approximately $2.1 million in quarterly charitable gaming grants to more than 1,000 volunteer groups and organizations across the province. The charitable gaming grant program provides a grant equal to 25 per cent of the net revenues raised through charitable gaming activities including licensed bingos, rafﬂes, breakopen tickets, Texas Hold’em poker and Monte Carlo events. Groups that conduct licensed charitable gaming activities and events do not have to apply for the charitable gaming grant, as gaming reports submitted by

sunshiny day on Thursday, September 27, when CTV’s Home Town Tour came to the community of Nokomis. At 12:00 noon the big green STC bus rolled into town, and made its ﬁrst stop at the Nokomis Centennial Hall. CTV Regina evening news co-anchors Danelle Boivin and Dan McIntosh, as well as the rest of their crew, enjoyed soup, homemade bread and desserts with the capacity crowd at the community hall. From the hall, the tour went over to the school for a quick tour, The highlight of the school visit was the cream pie toss, with Principal Ken Koenig’s face as the primary target. Ken was able to exact some measure of revenge by getting to “pie” Dan McIntosh. Luckily the “victims” got to wear protection so the pie ﬁlling didn’t ruin their clothes. At the Nokomis Health Centre, all the residents were waiting in the common area to welcome Dan, Danelle and crew. Dr. Lim then did an interview with Dan and Danelle during which his lengthy service to the community was prominently mentioned. Everyone on the tour was really impressed with the Nokomis and District Museum, as most people usually are. Karen Lee did a great job as tour guide. As mentioned later on the TV coverage, the visitors were really impressed to ﬁnd such a great museum in a small town like Nokomis. At the Nokomis Rec. Centre
CTV Regina co-anchors Danelle Boivin and Dan McIntosh arrived at the Nokomis Centennial Hall at 12:00 noon for lunch. Sean, Doug and Cole Edwards gave Dan and Danelle the ofﬁcial tour while Sean gave them a brief history of the rink, and talked about the community’s dedicated work to keep it up-todate and operating. From there, Dan, Danelle and crew headed to the Kiddieland Park to get setup for the suppertime news. At 5:00 p.m., hot dogs and hamburgers were barbecued and served to a very large crowd of people, some coming from out of town to join in the festivities. From the youngest to the very oldest, everyone enjoyed themselves. During the 6:00 p.m. news, I was pleased (and more than a little bit scared!) to be pulled in to a live interview to talk about the many activities in our busy community. David Mark, Nokomis’ mayor elect, and Sean Edwards, president of the Recreation Board, were also interviewed and did an excellent job of promoting our community.
During the supper hour, the STC staff blew up balloons for the children and conducted a name draw rafﬂe for the adults to enter two separate draws to win free bus rides. While the news was on, they made the draws and announced the winners after the live broadcast: the winners were Lorna Mansell and Ruth Edwards. A ‘Hometown Hero Award’ was presented to an outstanding citizen of the community. The award went to Lois Mortenson, in recognition of her community activism and all her dedicated volunteer work. After the evening news was ﬁnished, there was time for more visiting, and the CTV crew even found time for some “horse play” in the park with the gathered throngs of excited children. The CTV crew then literally drove off into the prairie sunset. What a wonderful day it turned out to be! -article & photos by Lylie Herman

No schools under review At the Horizon School Division Board of Education meeting held on September 21, 2012, motions were brought forward that all schools meeting the criteria for review in accordance with the Department of Education and Horizon School Division’s School Review – Board Procedure be removed from the formal review process. All motions were carried. As a result, HZSD issued a news release On September 24 announcing there will be no Horizon schools placed under review for grade discontinuance or closure during the 2012-2013 academic year.
Vehicles collide with train At approximately 6:15 p.m. on September 26, members of the RCMP in Humboldt, along with EMS and the Humboldt Fire Department, responded to a motor vehicle collision at the railway crossing on Highway 5 approximately three kms west of Humboldt. A mini-van was stopped facing west-bound waiting for a train when a west-bound pickup truck struck the van from behind, pushing the van into the side of the train. The driver of the van and her two small children were extricated from the vehicle and transported to hospital, as was the male driver of the pickup. All injuries appear to be minor. There was no damage to the train. The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending. Accident results in arrests On September 25, at 3:10 p.m., an off-duty RCMP ofﬁcer observed a car collide with a mini-van near the south access entrance into Warman, and immediately drive away. The ofﬁcer reported the incident to an onduty ofﬁcer, who located the car on the northeast side of Warman. The ofﬁcer attempted to stop the car. A very short distance later, the car crashed into a gully on the east side of Warman, and the two occupants ﬂed on foot. A foot chase ensued with the police, and one of the occupants pointed a can of bear spray at the ofﬁcer. Back up ofﬁcers arrived and assisted securing the area, where the ofﬁcers successful located and arrested the two individuals: an 18 year old male and a 16 year old male, both from Saskatoon. The 18 year old has been charged with resisting arrest, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of break in instruments and failing to comply with an undertaking. The 16 year old has been charged with ﬂight from police while operating a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of marihuana, assaulting a police ofﬁcer, resisting arrest, carrying a dangerous weapon and failing to
Break-ins investigated Between August 29 and 31, a seasonal residence in the RM of Porcupine Plain, south of Greenwater Provincial Park was broken into. Entry was gained by smashing through a locked door. Culprits made off with a 2005 Suzuki Quadmaster S500. The quad is red with a black plastic storage container/seat on the back. The ATV also had very aggressive tread tires. Around the same time, suspects attempted to steal a tractor parked in a nearby ﬁeld, they were unsuccessful but made off with a tow chain from the tractor. On September 10 a residence south of Hudson Bay on Hwy 9 was broken into. Culprits gained entrance through the door and made off with a number of electronic items including a 47” LED television, a Nintendo Wii system with games and accessories, a surround sound receiver, a Canon camcorder and an Apple Ipad. There were no witnesses. The Ipad was recovered the following day in Prince Albert via GPS tracking. 37 year old Victor Belhumeur of Weekes, SK has been charged by Prince Albert City Police with 1 count of possession of stolen property.

Businesses given anonymity in consultation COPE Local 397 has submitted a disclosure request for the names of 2,137 businesses that are opposing improvements to Saskatchewan’s minimum wage. The Government of Saskatchewan has concluded its consultation on the renewal of Labour Legislation, receiving 2,186 responses from individual businesses and business organizations. A standard form letter distributed by the Canadian Federation for Independent Business (CFIB) accounts for all but 48 of these submissions. The CFIB form letter opposes proposals to index the minimum wage to CPI, and requests changes that would provide business a way to opt out of paying overtime rates to employees working extra hours. According to a FAQ document provided by the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, Freedom of Information legislation requires the Government to disclose information provided by organizations during the consultation process. COPE 397 says that this standard is being applied inconsistently. The names of organizations were only withheld for businesses who submitted the CFIB form letter. Organizational identities were not redacted in submissions from approximately 116 other groups. “Saskatchewan has the lowest minimum wage in the country, and workers are already relying on overtime just to make ends meet,” says Angela McLean, President of COPE Local 397. “Over two thousand businesses are calling on our Government to oppose improvements for workers in our province. Is it fair that they should be the only organizations not to disclose their identities?”
Reports on the death of the video store are greatly exaggerated Because major media outlets are concentrated in a handful of large cities the message Canadians hear in the media is that video stores are all but gone. That’s not accurate, according to Movie Experts Inc. “If you look beyond those larger markets, the video store is still a vibrant business which contributes to the very fabric of local neighbourhoods,” a spokesman said. “When the Disney Company implemented a policy to limit video stores’ rental of their movies, they probably didn’t expect that independent entrepreneurs across Canada would ﬁght back. We will protect not only the 2,000 small businesses these local owners have nurtured for many years, but also the 10,000 jobs of the people that work at these stores and ensure their millions of customers can continue to rent movies.” “We will not sit back and let Disney threaten businesses and Canadian jobs while limiting consumer’s access to their movies by raising the costs of viewing Disney movies to all Canadians and particularly families,” the spokesman added. “We encourage all Canadians to learn more by visiting www.BoycottDisney.ca.”

Sports news & commentary
Local players beneﬁt from NHLPA Strasbourg and area youth are recipients of the NHLPA Goals and Dreams donation of 26 complete sets of hockey equipment. A letter went out to all families in the Bulyea and Strasbourg Schools at the beginning of June and by the end of the month, the applications from 26 children had been turned in. The ofﬁcial order was then sent off for the new equipment for each of the applicants. Friday, September 21, the Jay’s Moving and Storage semi pulled into Strasbourg and dropped off 39 boxes of equipment. Saturday morning a group of ﬁve volunteers organized the equipment, ﬁlling the bags from the order forms. The equipment picked up was on the evening of Tuesday, September 25, at the home of Carol Schultz. Carol is the proud mother of Nick Schultz, who has certainly done his part giving back to the community; a place where he too started as a young hockey player. The Strasbourg area has received 75 complete sets of equipment from the Players Association in the past four years. Many fortunate families have beneﬁted from such a worthwhile program. Carol Schultz

Calgary’s Cornish having unforgettable year The 2012 season in the Canadian Football League is shaping up as one to remember for Jon Cornish of the Calgary Stampeders. The New Westminster, B.C., native, who played his collegiate ball at Kansas but was never drafted by a National Football League club, has been the talk of the CFL through the ﬁrst half of the season and is zeroing in on some end-ofseason awards. Top Canadian? The league ofﬁce can almost start inscribing his name on the trophy. He won the weekly top-Canadian award three consecutive times, which gives him a huge leg up on the competition in that category. Most outstanding player? Has to be considered. Cornish leads the CFL in rushing yards and will almost certainly become the ﬁrst back to the 1,000-yard plateau after his 67 against Saskatchewan Sept. 23 gave
him 947. His rushing total is about 130 yards ahead of the No. 2 back, Kory Sheets of Saskatchewan. No Canadian has won the CFL rushing crown since 1988 – almost a quarter of a century. Grey Cup champ? Why not? The Stamps are certainly in the mix in the West, with Cornish and receiver Nik Lewis leading the offence and a solid 7-5 record through 12 games of the 18game schedule. Cornish told Allan Cameron of the Calgary Herald that he’s all business on the ﬁeld. There’s no such thing as friendly banter between the lines once the game is under way, he said. “I play my best when I don’t engage with the other team,” he told Cameron. “I have absolute appreciation for the things other teams are trying to do. There’s nothing disrespectful. But on the ﬁeld? It’s not my prerogative to interact with the other team. I have goals far grander than any
single game. So why get caught up in something like that? “They can tackle me and
say whatever they want, and I’ll just get up and walk away.” It’s all adding up to 2012 being a season Cornish won’t soon forget. Neither will the CFL record book. • R. J. Currie of sportsdeke.com: “If the White Sox merged with the Red Sox, would they be the Pink Sox?” • Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times: “July 2012 was the hottest month ever recorded, according to the Weather Channel.

They can’t wait to get back to being furious with the regular ofﬁcials.” • Another one from Rolfsen: “Patrick Kane being interviewed by attractive on-ice female sportscasters is like Prince Fielder being interviewed by pizza.” • NBC golf commentator Gary Koch on the narrow 16th fairway at East Lake Golf Club: “It’s like trying to hit it into a double car garage.” Care to comment?

Schultz honoured with Diamond Jubilee medal On the afternoon of Tuesday, September 25, Carol Schultz, Mayor of Strasbourg, was honored at a ceremony at Government House in Regina. During a presentation, Carol, along with 40 other Saskatchewan residents from the southern part of the province, were honoured with the ‘Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.’ This medal marks the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty on the throne. The medal recognizes outstanding Canadians from all walks of life across Canada. Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schoﬁeld presented the medals to the recipients. During her speech the Lieutenant Governor noted the Queen chose the theme of service for this milestone year. The Diamond Jubilee Medal celebrates
both Her Majesty’s lifetime of service and the outstanding contributions of deserving citizens. Central Services Minister Nancy Heppner read the citations for each recipient. In Carol’s citation, it was noted Carol loves where she lives and believes in her community. She has been on Strasbourg’s Town Council since 1984 and mayor since 2004. She is on the boards of many organizations in the community and has initiated many major projects for her community. Carol inspires all to be active citizens in the community and her enthusiasm is contagious. Honoured to attend the ceremony with Carol, were her mother Ann Wagner and Linda Lanigan. LMT staff

A group of like-minded volunteers in Strasbourg is organizing a community fundraiser for the Lisa and Don Cornish family. “Lisa is currently undergoing treatments for cancer, and the community would like to help by raising money to help with costs, and living expenses during this very important time,” group spokesman Kirby Kazeil said. “By attending the fundraiser dinner and auction, people can do their small part to help out.” Kazeil says the event, planned for November 3 at the Strasbourg Hall, will feature a hot meal followed by a silent auction and rafﬂe draw for a prize package valued at over $1,000. All of the food and prizes have been donated, which will allow all of the proceeds from ticket sales and the auction to be given to the Cornish family. Tickets are available from Strasbourg businesses displaying the event posters.

New trees enhance school grounds
New trees have sprouted on the grounds of William Derby School! The SCC applied for the TD grant for community greening and received $5,000.00 which they used to purchase Green Ash and Colorado Spruce trees for the south side of the school grounds. The SSC, School Community Council, and volunteers helped plant the trees, and the ﬁre department helped with the ﬁrst watering of them.

SaskTel stands behind rural high speed internet customers Despite recent changes made by the federal government in broadband spectrum allocation, SaskTel says it will continue to offer its rural customers the very best high speed internet service available. “SaskTel is making every effort to ensure that rural high speed customers continue to have high quality internet access,” Minister Responsible for SaskTel Don McMorris said. “SaskTel will continue to be an industry leader in rural customer service, by investing in the latest communications solutions available.” SaskTel provides high speed internet service to approximately 3% of its customers over a ﬁxed wireless broadband network. Due to changes in frequency allocation made by the federal
government, combined with the deterioration of no longer manufactured equipment needed to maintain the current ﬁxed wireless network, SaskTel will be discontinuing this network at the end of 2012. However, SaskTel will be providing impacted customers two options for an alternative high speed internet service. SaskTel High Throughput Satellite (HTS) Internet Service Powered by Xplornet or a 4G Mobile Internet Stick service plan. In order to ease the transition for these customers, there are no equipment charges or sign-up fees with a 3 year contract for either of these services. Sasktel says if customers have not received a letter informing them of this situation, their high speed internet will not be impacted.

Legion to build “Virtual Wall” The Royal Canadian Legion will build a “Virtual Wall of Honour and Remembrance” to honour all deceased veterans. The appearance of the “Virtual Wall” will coincide with the National Remembrance Day Ceremony, organized by the Legion on behalf of and for all Canadians. It will be displayed on the large video screens prior to the start of the actual ceremony on November 11, 2012 and those thereafter. As a way to honour their relatives and friends who have served Canada, Canadians are invited to forward a photograph of the deceased veteran to Legion Dominion Command along with his or her name, years of service, element or force to which the departed belonged or regiment/unit. Photos can be sent by mail to Dominion Command, 86 Aird Place, Ottawa, ON, K2L 0A1 (no originals please as they cannot be returned) or electronically toRememberingThem@legion.ca . Any deceased veteran, including those who belonged to the Merchant Navy and of Ferry Command, whose death was attributable to any cause before or after they served (World Wars, Korea, peace support missions, Afghanistan, accidental death in Canada) will be honoured.

Carolynn’s Reflexology – Strasbourg / Lumsden / Regina
No pressure …really
hen Certified Reflexologist C a r o l y n n Sikorski and her husband Sid moved back to the Prairies in 2002, it wasn’t to get away from the pressures of big city life. After all, they had lived a relatively pressure-free lifestyle on a small acreage
on Thursdays to meet the demand from new and existing clients that commute and wish to have choice and ﬂexibility of locations and days to suit their personal needs and lifestyles. “I love sharing the experience of reﬂexology with a client, encouraging them to get
by Kelly Kirk Long story short, I traded my daily driver truck off on a daily driver... I can’t believe I’m saying it... Car. Not only a car, a newer car, with more doors, as in more than two. A sedan! Gasp! It’s actually really comfortable, looks fairly gangster, uses minimal fuel and has half the miles on it that the truck had, so a solid trade, if I do say so myself. Did I mention it still is rearwheel-drive based with automatic all-wheel-drive? How about the fact that it’s North American? Almost black, if navy blue counts? Well, it’s all those things, but with more doors, and I don’t mind telling you about a few more awesome four doors. Let’s go back in time, way back to a time when cool was cool, back before the days of safety, functionality and sanctioning bodies. Back to the 50’s, before even! That’s right, you guessed it (or you may be completely clueless still, my hints are sketchy at best). Suicide doors, I’ve mentioned them in passing before if I recall correctly. If you’ve ever seen a Hudson Terraplane from the 1930’s, it had suicide doors front and rear, that’s four doors that do not open conventionally. The Lincoln Continental from the late 1960s had standard front doors, suicide rear doors,
and was available in a convertible as well. It’s drop top fun for the whole family without the need to fold any seats forward. An early 1950’s Mercury also came with suicide rear doors, and is still a favorite and heavily customized to this day. If any of the doors on your more door car open suicide style, it’s instantly cool. Let’s say that all four doors open conventionally on your car. Let’s also say that it’s big, really big! How could a big four door be cool, you ask? How about a four door hardtop? For those of you that don’t know, there is an obvious difference between a sedan and a hardtop (aside from the fact that one has a way cooler name). When you open the door in a sedan, the window has a big metal frame around it, leaving no exposed glass edges. When you open the door in a hardtop, you’ll notice a lack of frame, leaving three glass edges exposed. Taking this all into consideration, when all the windows are open in a hardtop, there is a giant hole in the side of the car, with no vision-obstructing post between the doors, unlike the family-looking sedan with the bulky B-pillar. In all reality, lots of really awesome cars were available as two-doors, four-doors, convertibles,

station wagons, etc. With the right stance, wheels and paintjob, there are plenty of these cars that can be made to look cool. With even more finesse, any number of them can make you look cool as well, like a leather jacket, or being in a garage band in high school. Do I feel cool in my more door, you ask? Of course I do, I mean, I told you it’s almost black, right? Kelly Kirk Nokomis, SK Disclaimer: the opinions expressed are those of the writer.

on Vancouver Island with their daughter for more than 20 years. However, moving closer to family in the seemingly quiet, but bustling community of Lumsden, and living and working there for 9 years, was certainly more of a “pressurized” environment than their Vancouver Island acreage. So, Caroylnn and Sid found themselves longing for the acreage and smaller community lifestyle once again. “In our search we came across Strasbourg and fell in love with the community, as we found the people to be ‘long lost friends’, treating us with welcome smiles and warm conversations,” Carolynn says. “The beautiful wide-open scenery and views of the ‘blue hills’ and peak-aboo glimpses of the lake sold us on an acreage that is now our home 13km west of Strasbourg.” She adds that Strasbourg and its people have a real sense of community spirit and the town offers all the essential businesses and services.

their body to work naturally to restore its own health by reducing stress and tension within. When the body is stress free it can start to heal itself,” Carolynn said. “Some people experience reﬂexology as being very relaxing, others ﬁnd it quite reviving and restorative, and others ﬁnd it very helpful in relieving their ailments such as headaches, sinus congestion, constipation, anxiety. The list goes on and on.” According to Wikipedia “the source of all knowledge”, reﬂexology, or zone therapy, is an alternative medicine involving the physical act of applying pressure to the feet, hands, or ears with speciﬁc thumb, ﬁnger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reﬂex areas that reﬂect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.” Carolynn accepts that there is some skepticism about the therapy, but asserts that in her experience reﬂexology is a gentle, non-invasive method that can help with constipation, circulation, high blood pressure, arthritis, depression, dementia, menopausal

symptoms, sleep disturbance, diabetes and other conditions. “Reﬂexology works by reducing stress within the body. When you reduce stress you encourage the body to work naturally to restore its own health achieving balance or homeostasis,” Carolynn states. “Considering that 75% of all diseases are stress related, stress management is imperative for a healthy lifestyle, especially for the elderly. Reﬂexology helps to increase overall well being to make daily living tasks a bit more manageable. So much so that employers wishing to improve productivity, you may want to consider adding reﬂexology as part of their employee wellness program!” A recent addition to Carolynn’s operation is raindrop therapy. “The raindrop technique is a powerful non-invasive tool, using therapeutic grade essential oils, for assisting the body to heal naturally,” she explained. “The oils are applied like “raindrops” and then spread out over the skin with a gentle feather-like touch. It is detoxifying, balancing, and may help stimulate the immune system. The oils used in raindrop technique must be of high quality therapeutic grade and for this reason I only work with Young Living’s Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.” Carolynn enjoys promoting her business at trade shows and community events, including this past year at the New Year’s Yoga Retreat at St. Michael’s Retreat at Lumsden; the March Health & Wellness Fair at William Derby School in Strasbourg; a Weekend Yoga Retreat in June, and the August Yoga Under the Living Skies event at St. Michael’s Retreat in Lumsden. Other recent events included the “Totally Tess” event in Regina; the Natural Health & Healing Expo Big Brown Barn in Silton; and World Reﬂexology Week events in Strasbourg, Bulyea, Duval, Govan, and Nokomis – where Carolynn was among fellow Reﬂexologists, Carol Nordal (Bulyea), Patricia McCormick (Silton) and Myrtle Shewaga (Colesdale Park). Carolynn Sikorski is a Registered Certiﬁed Reﬂexology Therapist with two years experience. She received her certiﬁcation through the Reﬂexology Association of Canada and carries insurance on her practice.

High-value 300 variant looks like a million bucks on the cheap Pricey, European poshsedans take note: Chrysler’s now created a worthy lowbuck competitor in the market for four-wheeled statements of success. Dubbed the 300 S, it’s a high-value variant of the new 300 that puts great design, high-tech goodies and classy-as-heck luxury well within the reach of valueminded shoppers. It looks, acts and feels the part of a world-class achievement accessory -- but without an appendage-severing price tag. In a nutshell, this Detroitdeveloped cruiser has “everything,” looks fantastic, and represents a cost-effective way to show your family and friends that you’ve made it. Bang for the Buck At the very least, the 2012 Chrysler 300 S is a hell of a lot of machinery for the money. At the most, it’s a very good reason to question anyone’s need to spend double or more on a luxury car. BMW 535i with all the goodies or a Chrysler and a speedboat? Hmmm. The 300 S builds on the recent do-over of Chrysler’s ﬂagship sedan, and it’s helping turn it into one of the most desirable mainstream American cars in the affordable world. It’s now a bigger threat to competing Cadillac and Lincoln models than it ever was before. An Affordable Head-Turner The fresh look of the 2012 Chrysler 300 S turns heads, attracts attention and sees passersby slowing down for a closer look. The glitzy bits, huge exhausts, massive wheels, thin windows, and chunky proportions generate that stately, handsome presence that debuted -- although more geriatrically -- in the ﬁrst-gen “new” 300. But now, it’s all more modern, youthful and up-todate. Edges are rounded, more sculpted and more athletic. The whole thing is more cohesive and focused. It’s all richer and more detailed. It even looks a bit Bentley-ish from some angles, which will make it a hit with popartist hopefuls. Most guessed the tester’s price about $12,000 too high thanks partly to designers ﬁtting a level of chrome that rivals the square footage of Rihanna’s forehead. And anyone can drive the 2012 Chrysler 300 S without worry of jokes regarding grandkids, Fixodent and vacationing in Florida thanks to youthful, street-smart touches like LED headlight accents, xenon lighting and a dual-pane sunroof. One of America’s Best Cabins Inside, red leather seats are embossed with the
“S” logo and contrasting stitching, metallic accents abound, and it's hard not to look at the huge touchscreen and a gorgeous set of chrome-trimmed instruments with ice-blue backlighting. Passengers will run their hands over numerous surfaces within the car and gush unanimously about the seats. Extra points for the abundant at-hand storage. The whole thing is assembled nicely and feels dense, solid and robust. Thoughtful, functional little design touches that exceed the norm abound, too. Day or night, the look and feel of much of the 300 S cabin deﬁes expectations set by its price. World Class High Tech Ditto for the list of features. Radar monitoring of blind spots, guided cruise control and rear-bumper parking proximity was included -- as was remote start, ambient lighting, a rear-window sunshade and memory seating. Cupholders are heated and chilled, and both rows of seating are heated, as is the steering wheel. The 2012 Chrysler 300 S even has the same “shift by wire” gear lever as an Audi A8 L. Full multimedia connectivity puts any music device a touch or two away via the infotainment screen, which itself boasts one of the best interfaces on today’s market. There’s even a “Beats by Dr. Dre” stereo – endorsed and tuned by the millionaire rapper and producer responsible for artists like Eminem and 50 Cent. It packs some punch, stays mostly clean at high volume, and handled playback of my favourite alternative rock tracks just ﬁne. Your friends who use Dr. Dre’s Beats headphones will get a kick out of the
cross-branding. Cruising, Accelerating in Style Some drivers will wish for a slightly softer ride on the 20” wheels, though the 300 S virtually always feels composed, planted, comfortable, and slightly sporty. The overall experience is longdistance worthy without riding like its got shocks made of creamed spinach. Chrysler’s new 3.6L Pentastar engine sent 292 hp to the rear wheels. Chrysler’s new do-it-all powerplant is mellow, relaxed and potent, and it packs strong off-theline torque and a healthy dose of high-rpm thrust thanks to a slick cam-timing system. The Pentastar howls delightfully when pushed, and feels natural and un-strained in any situation. With 8 forward gears, highway revs are pegged under 2,000 rpm while cruising a little north of the speed limit. Doing so put regular unleaded away a rate of 8.5L/100km on my watch. Complaints? Wind and road noise were higher than expected, rear-seat headroom is on the tight side, and the electronic gear shifter can feel a bit klutzy and imprecise at times. Additionally, the front doors open so widely that an uncomfortable reach to close them is sometimes required. Overall, the refreshing feel of advancement and success styled and engineered into the 300 S will be its strongest asset; followed closely by its price. The V6-powered, reardrive tester came in around $43,000 with all the options. That’s a bargain for what looks and feels like a million bucks. -Justin Pritchard, auto123.com

Agriculture news & views
The vision of what government thinks is a good farm safety net and what farmers desire still seem to be decidedly different, not that that is particularly shocking. But governments keep trying nevertheless. Earlier this month federal, provincial and territorial (FPT) Ministers of Agriculture reached agreement on the content of the Growing Forward 2 policy framework for the agriculture, agri-food and agri-products sector, the latest in a long line of government cost-shared ag safety nets which all ultimately seem to be lacking. “The new ﬁve-year agreement includes investments in strategic initiatives of over $3 billion for innovation, competitiveness and market development, including a 50% increase in governments’ cost-shared initiatives. In addition, governments will continue to deliver a complete and effective suite of Business Risk Management (BRM) programs to ensure farmers are protected against severe market volatility and disasters,” detailed an Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada release. “Just as farmers continuously improve their business practices, so too have governments made adjustments to help Canada remain a world leader in agricultural innovation and trade,” said Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz in the release. “Growing Forward 2 will help drive economic growth and longterm prosperity through agricultural innovation and market development, while also ensuring governments continue to share the risk of severe market volatility and disasters.” Of course you would not expect Ritz to do less than rave about an agreement he was a signatory too. No politician admits the shortfall within their program. Even with the Gross Revenue Insurance Program (GRIP) of the late 1980s, which was one of the most maligned farm support programs ever formulated, politicians of the day would have called it the answer to farmers needs. Certainly aspects of the program have to be seen as positive. Even GRIP had its positives. In the case of the Growing Forward 2 initiative the additional 50 per cent funding for innovation, competitiveness and market development has to be a good thing. There is an obvious beneﬁt to being innovative, although not all innovation works either.
FNA announces Limited Partnership moving on fertilizer plant by Calvin Daniels Pea-based snack chips, ﬂax ﬁbre for manufacturing processes, super-compressed hay bales for export to Japan, and strawboard all ideas that were innovative and made logical sense but could not make money in the marketplace. So having government footing some of the bills in exploring new ideas and developing markets is a good place for some taxpayer investment. But others see ﬂaws before the ink is even dry on the deal. The “announcement of the revised Growing Forward 2 Business Risk Management (BRM) programs, the costshared federal-provincial policy framework, has two signiﬁcant changes: a loss level trigger for AgriStability that will make it difﬁcult, if not impossible, for most farms to obtain support under the program; and a clear decision by governments to seek out private insurance options to ﬁll the gaps in public farm safety net programs,” stated a National Farmers Union release. In the release NFU Terry Boehm said, “from these changes, along with the ongoing destruction of institutional arrangements that have protected farmers, it is increasingly clear that the current government’s intent is to abandon public support for the agriculture sector, and instead let those with the most market power determine the shape and goals of Canada’s food and agriculture system.” He added, “By going along with the federal government’s proposals, provincial governments have also signaled that they are not interested in the vibrancy of the agricultural community, nor does it matter to them who produces the food that Canadians eat.” And therein lies the rub for governments. Farming by its very nature is extremely diverse, and becoming more diverse all the time. What works for a salmon farmer in British Columbia may not work for a wheat grower in Saskatchewan, a beef farmer in Alberta, or a potato farmer in Prince Edward Island. So what does that mean for the latest deal? Like its predecessors it will work for many farmers in many situations. It will also have holes, which means some farmers will need support and will fall through the cracks. Time will tell just how many holes the new deal has.

Farmers of North America (FNA) has announced that a new business, the FNA Fertilizer Limited Partnership, has been created speciﬁcally to provide farmers a mechanism for ownership of a new fertilizer manufacturing facility. In turn, FNA Fertilizer Limited Partnership has launched a formal project named “ProjectN” which will begin raising seed capital immediately. It had been previously reported that FNA was “pondering” the idea of building a nitrogen fertilizer plant, but no direct actions to that end have been publicly disclosed until now. “It needs to be clear that FNA is not talking about getting into the manufacturing business itself,” said spokesman Bob Friesen. “Rather, as we have done in the past, we are organizing and providing the catalyst to see a fertilizer plant built. Participation in fertilizer manufacturing will allow farmers to capture more of the value chain.” The ProjectN working group has conducted a review of the sector, analyzed natural gas pricing, plant scale, market demand, competitive supply and other indicators framing the business case for a new development. The results of these preliminary investigations have been positive. “The business case is compelling,” said Friesen. “The real question is if and to what extent farmers want to gain a return on investment to offset the high cost of fertilizer rather than merely paying for it. Whether or not farmers participate, they will pay for new fertilizer plants indirectly as part of the base fertilizer cost.” He added that since North America imports nearly seven million tonnes of fertilizer a year, it is obvious that farmers are paying for all the plants that now exist and the proﬁts they make. Farmers of North America is a farmers’ business alliance with the mission of “Improving Farm Proﬁtability.” FNA Fertilizer Limited Partnership is a separate legal entity designed to align farmers together to build a fertilizer plant.

Viterra Inc. provided an update last week regarding the status of regulatory approvals of Glencore International’s proposed acquisition of Viterra. While the closing of the transaction remains subject to the satisfaction or waiver of all applicable conditions, Viterra says the sole remaining regulatory hurdle is the approval of the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China (MOFCOM) under the Chinese Anti-Monopoly Law. Viterra says Glencore and Viterra continue to engage with MOFCOM to ensure approval as soon as possible. In order to accommodate MOFCOM’s review process, Viterra and Glencore have extended the outside date for completion of the acquisition by one month to November 15, 2012. MOFCOM is expected to provide its approval within this timeframe. Viterra and Glencore say they will advise the market once MOFCOM approval has been received.

Partners in Motion: Regina’s loss, Langley’s gain Langley, B.C. has been selected as the new corporate home of Regina’s Partners in Motion’s ﬁlm production company. Once re-established in B.C. the internationallyrecognized television production company will also become the West Coast anchor of a new national multimedia company called Shift Media Group. “We are thrilled to be in Langley,” said Partners in Motion Executive vice-president Ron Goetz. “This is a ﬁlm friendly environment. It will offer more locations for shooting, more access to talent and crews and an inviting ﬁnancing regime.” “We welcome Partners in Motion to the Township of Langley and look forward to seeing it grow and prosper as a strong leader in factual/reality-based productions in the Canadian ﬁlm industry,” says
Township of Langley Mayor Jack Froese. “Filming in the Township of Langley is a very important contributor to our community’s economic success and Partners in Motion’s decision to make Langley their west coast home only strengthens the ﬁlm industry business in our community,” says Economic Development Manager Gary McKinnon.

Group calls on Premier to support “open government” A group of labour researchers and writers is calling on Premier Wall to improve access to information and government accountability by adopting an initiative known as “Open Government.” The group, Open Up, made the call last week in conjunction with Right to Know Week. “The public’s right to know is of paramount importance in a democratic society, but trying to get information from government can be like having a root canal. Even with freedom of information legislation, it’s often a time-consuming and unpleasant process,” says Heath Smith, the communications representative at the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour and a member of Open Up, a support group for those exposed to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act. “The late Joe Kuchta, a Saskatoon resident who ﬁled hundreds of freedom of information (FOI) requests, documented those frustrations on his blog, Owls and Roosters. If the Saskatchewan government was committed to openness and accountability, much of the information citizen Joe Kuchta obtained through freedom of information requests – documents involving the Amicus long-term care deal in Saskatoon or the New West Partnership agreement – would be available on government websites,” Smith said. “Premier Wall and the Saskatchewan government need to raise the bar and adopt the Open Government model where information is ‘pushed-out’ open doors, rather than hidden behind closed doors,” said Cheryl Stadnichuk, a researcher with the Canadian Union of Public Employees. “This approach reduces public reliance on freedom of information requests.” The move to “Open Government” is part of a larger plan being developed by the labour collective to improve government accountability and transparency in Saskatchewan, which lags behind other provinces.

Solutions & Substitutions Column WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 30 TO OCTOBER 6, 2012 LUCKIEST SIGNS THIS WEEK: LEO, VIRGO & LIBRA ARIES No matter what type of negotiation you’re involved in, take care to rely on exact information. Relying on your impressions will cause you more confusion than anything else. TAURUS You may get involved in some kind of sports activity. Your competitive spirit will take over and coming in second will be out of the question. You will enjoy all the glory you worked for. GEMINI If you’re feeling overtired, it means, paradoxically, that you need to get more exercise. Adopting a new lifestyle will give you a lot more energy. CANCER Stress isn’t necessarily a negative thing. It could provide you with the necessary motivation to achieve some brilliant exploits. Schedule some time away from work so you can balance out the diﬀerent areas of your life.
Dear Reena, I love your column and your ability to communicate with your readers. I have a kitchen hint and a puzzling question for you. Hint: If you like stuffed green olives (like I do), don’t throw away the brine. Cut some carrot sticks (not too thinly) and put them in your olive jar. Boil the olive brine and pour it over the carrots. Seal and cool. My question: How can I keep my arched eyebrows even when I pencil them onto my face? The eyebrow pencil keeps skipping over my wrinkles. Let me know, Maria Dear Maria, Instead of using a pencil to draw your eyebrows, consider
using eye shadow instead. Doing this gives you a softer more natural look. When you measure the eyebrow line, place a ruler against your nose and the outer edge of your eye. This is where the eyebrow line should end. Next put the ruler against the side of your nose and the inner part of your eye. This will show you where to begin the line. You may also want to check out eyebrow tattoos; permanent eyebrows that are professionally drawn on so that you will not need to reapply them each day. Extra Tip: For people whose natural eyebrows tend to misshape during the day. Spray an old toothbrush with hairspray and brush your brows into position.
Hi Reena, I have high gloss hardwood ﬂoors in my kitchen and have removed the area rug under the table, now I can see a cloudy haze where the rug was. I have tried to clean it with water and a small amount of Murphy’s Soap, but I can still see the haze. What can I do now? Thanks for your help, Debbie Dear Debbie, For normal cleaning, vinegar and water or apple cider vinegar are great, as are hardwood cleaners speciﬁcally formulated for this purpose. However, in my experience when the challenge becomes a hazy annoyance, readers have had the best results by spraying the area with Windex and

LEO People with this sign often thirst for power. You were born to be a leader and to manage your own empire. This week many of the necessary elements to start your own small business will fall into place. VIRGO A vacation looms on the horizon. Even if it doesn’t take place for a few months, now’s the time to start preparing — perhaps by getting a new passport. LIBRA You might witness an unfair remark that causes a bit of a stir around you. You will have an important role to play in restoring harmony. SCORPIO You ﬁnd it hard to tolerate any kind of injustice and you tend to try and resolve unjust situations by yourself. While you play the parts of policeman and judge in one such situation this week, a bit of tact will allow you to manage things more successfully. SAGITTARIUS You will work with a great deal of energy and thoroughness to come to an agreement or sign a contract. Even if you suffer a lot of anxiety and sleeplessness, you will be extremely successful in the end. CAPRICORN You may be given a position of authority at work. For the sake of your health it is important to learn how to control your emotions and to express them appropriately when you need to. AQUARIUS You will see some almost instantaneous results with a new diet. You’ll ﬁnd this very satisfying and you’ll be very proud of yourself. PISCES You’ll be able to express your feelings with tact and integrity to family members with whom you have something to settle. There will be a bit of nostalgia in the air.

wiping, test on an inconspicuous area ﬁrst. Dear Reena, I was on your new website and found some good recipes for cleaners but I didn’t see the one that I really need for everyday use. I am wondering if you have any recipes to make your own spot remover for laundry stains. Linda Dear Linda, In a spray bottle, combine half laundry detergent and half Dawn dish soap, squeeze onto stains before tossing clothes into the machine, works very well. Make sure that you always check stains before putting them into the dryer because the heat of the dryer sets stains making them difﬁcult to remove. Eggciting Tips of the Week: • Next time you purchase eggs and ﬁnd one stuck to the bottom of the carton, wet the carton and it will release without breaking. • Add a small amount of salt to your cooking water to prevent boiling eggs from cracking. • When hard boiled eggs get mixed up with raw eggs, spin the egg on its side. If the egg wobbles, it is hard boiled. • Reduce the calories when you devil eggs, by leaving out the mayonnaise. Instead make the ﬁlling with egg yolk and low-fat yoghurt. Sprinkle with paprika. ______________________ I enjoy your questions and tips, keep them coming! Missed a column? Can’t remember a solution? Need a speaker for an upcoming event?

You had me at hello Job seekers don’t have much time to win over hiring managers, a new Accountemps survey suggests. More than half (52%) of human resources (HR) managers polled said they form a positive or negative opinion of candidates during interviews in 10 minutes or less. For some, impressions are made even quicker. Nearly three in 10 (29%) respondents indicated it takes them ﬁve minutes or less to draw conclusions about an interviewee. The survey was developed by Accountemps, the world’s largest stafﬁng service for temporary accounting, ﬁnance and bookkeeping professionals, and conducted by an independent research ﬁrm. It includes telephone interviews with more than 150 HR managers at Canadian companies with 20 or more employees. HR managers were asked, “How long does it typically
take you to form either a positive or negative opinion of a job candidate during an initial interview?” •Less than 5 minutes – 12% •5 minutes – 17% •6-10 minutes – 23% •11-15 minutes – 13% •16-20 minutes – 9% •21-30 minutes – 4% •More than 30 minutes – 14% •Don’t know/no answer – 8% The median response was 10 minutes. “Job seekers must be at the top of their game from the ﬁrst moments of the interview,” said spokesperson Kathryn Bolt. “In addition to providing strong responses to a hiring manager’s questions, candidates should project enthusiasm and a professional demeanor throughout the discussion.” Job candidates need to remember it’s not just the interviewer they need to impress.

“Hiring managers commonly seek advice from everyone who’s interacted with the interviewee – from the receptionist to the individual’s potential colleagues,” Bolt said. Accountemps offers ﬁve tips for getting the job interview off to a good start: 1) Pay attention to the details. Extend a ﬁrm handshake, maintain eye contact and present a professional image. This includes ensuring your shoes are shined, clothing is pressed, and nails are clean and trimmed. 2) Ace the likely questions. Make sure you know how you will respond to predictable questions, such as, “Can you tell me a little about yourself?” Research the ﬁrm before your interview and tap your network for their insights to enable you to couch your answers in the context of how you can help the company. 3) Don’t be cocky. Strike the right balance between presenting your accomplishments in a positive light and coming across as overly conﬁdent. Being arrogant is one of the worst mistakes a candidate can make. 4) Tell memorable stories. Give speciﬁc examples of how and why you’ve been successful. You’ll make a positive impression on hiring managers by sharing interesting anecdotes about how you solved a tough business problem or saved an employer money. 5) Be yourself. Avoid coming across as overly rehearsed. Interviewers want to get a sense of your personality and how you would ﬁt into the ofﬁce culture.

Thanksgiving Messages 3 Part Thanksgiving
Pastor Doug Armbruster God’s word shares with us a formula to follow this Thanksgiving season, as we endeavour to give thanks. 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is
God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:1617 Start with rejoicing! We are to be ﬁlled with joy as we realize all the blessings that God has poured out on us. Whether good or bad, God has blessed us with both hands, pouring out His mercy and grace out on us in abundance. There is no place for gloom – rejoice! Then, we need to remember who gets the glory and talk to Him about it. God desires to commune with His people, and He delights in our praises. Spend some time this Thanksgiving to “have a little talk with Jesus”, and pour out your thankful heart
to Him. Finally, no matter your circumstance, give thanks for it. Whether you are in plenty or in want, in joy or in sorrow, in sickness or in health, remember that God Almighty is with you. If you have asked Jesus to forgive the wrong things you have done, and chosen to follow Him as you personal Saviour and Lord, He will never leave you or forsake you. No matter how high or how low your circumstances may be, you have God on your side! Dear friend, that is worth giving thanks for! Happy Thanksgiving! Pastor Doug Armbruster Raymore Baptist Church
Always Thankful “Give thanks in all circumstances.” This Biblical commandment seems to defy all logic. Of course, we understand the appropriateness of being thankful when good things come our way. We teach our children to say thanks when someone gives them a gift. We usually can spot an ugly display of entitlement and are quick to distance ourselves from that attitude. Thanksgiving is appropriate and understandable when blessings ﬂow. The difﬁculty with this Biblical command is with the word “all”. What happens when circumstances are not good? Everyone has to deal with difﬁcult and evil circumstances. Can we be thankful when bad things happen to us or to those we love? Should we be thankful in those circumstances? “Give thanks in all circumstances for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18. This ability to be thankful in all circumstances is reserved for those who have entrusted their life into the hands of Jesus Christ. In his sovereignty, God makes all circumstances ‘work together for good’ to those who love him. This requires a faith perspective. When we face hardship and difﬁculty we realize that God is giving us an opportunity to grow in our experience of faith. When a beloved Rev. Glen Lonie family member dies we remain thankful to God because we are conﬁdent of the reality of eternal life. Yes, those who trust in Jesus Christ can be thankful in all circumstances. This is both evidence and a reward of authentic Christian faith because thankful people are joyful people. Rev. Glen Lonie Strasbourg Alliance Church

Love One Another So, let’s all cooperate with God and follow his ways so that we can know the life he desires for us. “Father, I praise and thank you for your faithfulness. You lift me up to see the light of a new dawn; you give me hope for the future, because you are with me.” Psalm 85:9–14; Matthew 9:14–17 “Jesus, I praise you for your overﬂowing love. I am so grateful that you never stop showering your mercy and strength on us. Right
This year Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving on Monday, October 8. Canadians will spend a considerable amount of time gathering with family and friends to give thanks and celebrate the bounty of the fall harvest. Thanksgiving has a distinct focus on the fall and harvest and is celebrated earlier than Americans celebrate their Thanksgiving because of Canada’s northern latitude, which brings an earlier harvest. English explorer Martin Frobisher may be the father of Canadian Thanksgiving. In 1578, after landing in Newfoundland, Frobisher gave thanks for his safe arrival. The practice of “giving thanks” was already a widespread practice in Europe, and Thanksgiving
Turkeys and mashed potatoes. Seasoned stufﬁng hot from the oven. Creamed onions, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. Uncles and aunts visiting and cousins we haven’t seen for a while. Grandmothers and grandfathers with family gathered round. Children with reddened cheeks playing in the snow and dads watching CFL football. A day to relax and maybe go for a walk in the afternoon. But Thanksgiving? How much will our celebrations this year have to do with giving thanks? The story is told of two old friends who bumped into one another on the street one day. One of them looked forlorn, almost on the verge of tears. His friend asked, “What has the world done to you, my old friend?” The sad fellow said, “Three weeks ago, an uncle died and left me 40,000 dollars.” “Wow, that’s a lot of money,” the other replied. His friend continued, “Two weeks ago, a cousin I never even knew died, and left me $85,000 free and clear.” “Sounds like you’ve been blessed....”
Many Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving with turkey and, of course, football. rotate annually, though the Montreal Alouettes have appeared in a Thanksgiving Day Classic game for the last six years and will do so again in 2012. Although much of Canada celebrates Thanksgiving in
now, I want to open my heart to receive all that you want to give me. I love you, Jesus. Psalm 115:1–4, 15–16; John 14:21–26 “Thank you, Father, for being in every part of my life, especially the ordinary times. Come and speak to my heart and mold me into your own image. Thank you for loving me so perfectly!” Psalm 146:1-6; Matthew 13:47–53 “Lord God, thank you for the many ways you speak to
me. Help me to be humble enough to accept your word, even if it comes from the most unlikely place.” Psalm 19:8-11; Matthew 9:1-8 “Jesus, thank you for the witness of St. Thomas! Help me to grow in love and faithfulness, in courage and understanding.” Ephesians 2:19-22; Psalm 117:1-2 J. Holterman Lay Person Immaculate Conception RC Church Quinton
The history and tradition of Canadian Thanksgiving became an ofﬁcial Canadian holiday on January 31, 1957, when Canadian Parliament announced, “A day of general thanksgiving to almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed will be observed on the second Monday in October.” Since then, Thanksgiving ofﬁcially occurs on the second Monday in October. However, the most common day to eat the Thanksgiving meal is the Sunday during the three-day weekend. Canadian Thanksgiving is no stranger to football, either. Each Thanksgiving, Canadians gather around their television sets to enjoy the Thanksgiving Day Classic, an annual doubleheader. The teams that participate in the Thanksgiving Day games
the same way, with food, football and parades, in Quebec the celebration is a bit different. English-speaking residents may celebrate, but French Canadians generally do not involve themselves in the festivities.
“You don’t understand!” his friend interrupted. “Last week my great-aunt passed away. I inherited almost a quarter of a million.” Now the ﬁrst man was really confused. “Then, why do you look so glum?” “This week I’ve gotten nothing!” A glance at the ﬁrst Thanksgiving brings it all back. On December 21, 1620 the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. Through the dead of winter the colony struggled with poor and meagre food, strenuous labour, a biting wind that chilled to the bone, and the ravages of disease. Nearly half the 102 Mayﬂower passengers did not live to see spring refresh Cape Cod Bay. The Pilgrims lived close enough to the soil to know how dependent they were on God’s Providence. They had learned to thank God in the midst of the bitterness of winter past. And they were quick to thank Him during abundant blessing, too. We teach our children to say “please” and “thank you” as the rudiments of courtesy, yet it is so easy to be rude and
Pastor Rey Dahlen unthinking toward God. How often we forget to gratefully acknowledge His goodness towards us. This Thanksgiving let your prayers and expressions of love rise toward your Heavenly Father. “What shall I render unto the Lord for all His beneﬁts toward me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord.” (Psalm 116:12-13) Pastor Rey Dahlen Quad Country Parish of Trinity Lutheran, Quinton St. Martin’s Anglican, Raymore Prince of Peace Lutheran, Govan St. Paul Lutheran, Duval
Keeping Our Focus on Thankfulness Psalms 92:11 It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: What are you focusing on. With Thanksgiving coming again for another year, it gives us opportunity to focus on things we are thankful for. I have found a truth that has helped me through many difﬁcult situations and difﬁculties. That is, the moment I began thanking God for all that is going right in my life, most problems straighten themselves out. If you think about it, we only have two real options in times of extreme pressure. Those options are to focus either on the problem... or on gratitude. You cannot do both at the same time. For instance, what happens if you have one sore ﬁnger? You may have nine ﬁngers that are working perfectly, but that isn’t your focus. No. All you can think about is how you are going to stop the pain of that one ﬁnger. Pastor Ken Bruvold God’s Word puts emphasis on being thankful. Give thanks in all circumstances, says the apostle Paul, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thess. 5:18).But if you do not focus on all the good things and state your thankfulness to God, redirecting your focus from the problem your going through. Your problem will dominate your thinking, and consume you. So start giving God thanks for all the good things He has and is doing in your life. Remind yourself that no matter what your circumstances are – it could be a whole lot worse. Lets make thankfulness a lifestyle. 1 Thes. 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Have a very Blessed Thanksgiving! Pastor Ken Bruvold Semans Pentecostal Church

Guide to dating after 50 troshock me back into coherency,” George says. However, the fact remains that many seniors are reentering the dating world after divorces or the death of a spouse. Some eternal bachelors and bachelorettes may have never left. For those about to re-enter the dating game in their senior years, these tips and tidbits may help make the process a bit easier. * Use dating sites. For those shy about simply mingling in the singles’ social scene, online sites offer a measure of anonymity and can take away some of the pressure. Plus they enable daters to pool from a
Little-known dietary contributors to heart disease Red meats, hydrogenized oils – these are the foods we associate with heart disease and high cholesterol. But a few other things many people eat rather frequently could be contributing to future heart problems. White pasta and breads Researchers have found that eating a diet high in reﬁned grains, including those in most store-bought pastas and white breads, can double the risk of heart disease. These foods are those that have a high glycemic index, or GI. Foods with a high GI quickly release sugar into the bloodstream. Doctors have found a correlation between high GI and heart disease, mainly in women, according to research at the University of Milan. The study questioned 32,578 women and 15,171 men. Those who consumed the largest concentration of high GI foods were 2.24 times more likely to develop heart disease than those with the lowest. Nutritionists advise that, when choosing grain products, it is important to select those made from whole grains. Not only do these products provide the nutritional beneﬁts of whole grains, including ﬁber, they also help reduce cholesterol and the risk for heart disease. Sugary items While many people associate sugary snacks, beverages and sugar itself with dental decay or unnecessary calories, these items also impact cholesterol levels. The average American eats the equivalent of 21 teaspoons of added sugar a day, which is two to three times the amount they should, according to an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Researchers found that individuals who consumed the most sugary products had the lowest HDL, or good cholesterol, and the highest blood triglyceride levels. Eating large amounts of sugar can then be a major risk factor for high cholesterol and heart disease. In its 2010 guidelines, the American Heart Association recommended limiting added sugar in the diet to no more than 100 calories a day for most women and 150 calories for most men. That’s six teaspoons for women and nine for men. To put those guidelines in perspective, consider that a 12-ounce can of soda has between eight and 10 teaspoons. In addition, many processed foods contain sugar even if sugar’s inclusion seems foolish. Some restaurants and food manufacturers have admitted to adding sugar to foods – especially those geared to children – to make them taste better and be more appealing. Therefore, sauces, ready-made dinners and other items may have sugar, and the consumer may not know it without reading the nutrition label. Also, it’s important to note that beverages are the leading supplier of added sugar for many people. Simply reducing the amount of juices, sports drinks and sodas in your diet can greatly reduce sugar consumption.

A growing number of people entering the world of dating are over the age of 50. While some things have changed since they did this the ﬁrst time around, the rules of dating have largely remained the same. During an episode of the popular sitcom, “Seinfeld,” George Costanza experiences extreme anxiety from the thought of his recently separated mother being “out there” in the dating world. “I'm out there,” offers Estelle. “No, you’re not! Because I’m out there, and if I see you out there, there’s not enough voltage in the universe to elec-
