Additional revenue sharing

Translates into mill rate drop for city By John Cairns Staff Reporter

North Battleford is moving quickly to adjust their mill rates downward after the

provincial government’s announcement that it would provide additional revenue sharing to municipalities. Administration is asking council to amend the 2008

general operating budget by incorporating the revenue sharing increase from the province and reducing the uniform mill rate. The increase in revenue sharing

amounts to over $100,000, and with that increase the uniform mill rate would drop from the planned 21.28 to 21. There are seven different mill rate factors so the mill

rate changes will not be the same for each one. As well, there is no change in the rate for the protective service base tax, which will rise from $483 to $523 for single family residences and condos. The increase for the recreation culture capital facilities levy remains at $50 for every living unit. The numbers were presented to council by North Battleford Director of Fi-

nance Byron Tumbach. He painstakingly went through the rates for single family and condo owners, and for multifamily properties, all of which will see varying drops in the mill rate from what was originally in the city’s budget. “They did not put any strings on this money,” Please see ‘No strings attached’ Page 3

Battleford will be seeing about $30,000 out of an eight per cent increase to municipal revenue sharing announced last week. The funds represent about a third of a mill, says town administrator Sheryl Ballendine of the money Municipal Affairs Minister Bill Hutchinson has urged municipalities use to reduce proposed property tax increases. Battleford mayor Chris Odishaw has called for no tax increases during this council’s term. They did manage to hold taxes last year, and are in the process of establishing this year’s budget. The next meeting is set for Wednesday evening. “Although this funding is unconditional, our goal is to help municipalities provide

property tax relief, particularly those that are planning property tax hikes this year,” said Hutchinson. The $10.41 million increase comes on top of a $7.9 million increase announced on budget day, and brings the total revenue sharing increase this year to $18.3 million. Battleford saw no increase to its revenue sharing funds from the budget day announcement. Due to the formula used to determine their share, says Ballendine, Battleford and a few other municipalities were already getting more than others. A letter received recently from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs stated that, based on the 2006 census, Battleford would be receiving the same as last year, a sum of Please see ‘Revenue sharing’ Page 3

‘Greener’ Fort Battleford earns award By Jayne Foster Staff Reporter

Fort Battleford has won a tourism award for going green. Last week, Fort Battleford National Historic Site was presented with the Land of Living Skies Award at the 19th annual Saskatchewan Tourism Awards of Excellence Gala in Saskatoon. The Land of Living Skies Award recognizes a tourism business that sets an example for others by demonstrating innovative efforts to prevent and reduce the environmental impacts of their business operations through planning and practice. An industry selection committee of 12 people determined the 45 finalists and 16 award recipients. Brendan Manz, communications officer for Fort Battleford, was on hand to accept the award. The nomination came through Battlefords Tourism and the West Central Tourism Region. They were up against two other finalists, Innovative Iron Products of Prince Albert and Meewasin Valley Authority of Saskatoon. Manz believes it was the Fort’s innovative technology that clinched the award. “Our technology on site is first class, definitely for the province, if not for Canada and the world,” he says. “Having solar panels on our visitor reception centre, a wind turbine as well as geo-

thermal technologies to heat and cool the visitor reception centre and one of our historic buildings on site [Barracks 5 Building].” Manz says the visitor reception centre is believed to be the first net zero building in the province. “We stand alone, basically, and don’t use anything from the environment to keep our building heated and cooled and powered.” The visitor reception centre houses a gift shop, a small food concession and Parks Canada’s administrative offices. It also includes a large open exhibit space being developed with the town of Battleford to interpret the history of the community and the site of Government Ridge. When the new centre opened in 2006, Fort Battleford became the first Parks Canada site to incorporate green technologies in producing power for site use. The geothermal heating/ cooling system has eliminated the need for natural gas. A similar system, added to one of the historic buildings, Barracks 5, is another first for Parks Canada. An estimated total of 154 tonnes of gas per year are saved because of the sustainable design, says Manz. In 2007, adds Manz, a school program was launched, based on the Saskatchewan curriculum, and the Climate Change and Renewable Energy tour at Fort Battleford has become

another experience that a visitor can come to this area and see something like this.” The turbine hasn’t been running over the winter due

to a problem with one of the blades. Manz says they are waiting for someone from Prince Edward Island to come out west to fix it, hopefully this summer. “Unfortunately we can’t just get the local guy down the street to fix it,” he points out.

Commemorative canoe flotilla sets out May 10 By Danica Lorer Freelance Reporter

In just a few days the 2008 David Thompson Brigade will begin. The event will commemorate 200 years since David Thompson travelled and mapped Western Canada. On May 10, teams from across Canada will begin a 3,600 km journey that will take them across central Canada via 400 pound voyageur canoes. They will start paddling at Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site and finish more than two months later on July 12 at Old Fort William on Lake Superior. In 1967, to celebrate the centennial of Canada, a race along the same route took a team from each of the 10 provinces from Rocky Mountain House to a manmade lake at the Expo ’67 site at Montreal. There will be several participants in the brigade who were racers in 1967. On the afternoon of May 20, the brigade will be making a stop at the Pine Island Historic Site at the Big Gully. The site was not only a stop during the race in 1967, but David Thompson actually lived on the island for a while when he was a teenager. Vinessa Currie of Clearwater Canoeing is spearheading the local event that will include food, entertainment and a chance to meet the 210 people involved in the brigade. An organizational meeting for the stopover was held at the RM of Eldon office on

April 24. Those in attendance were able to watch video clips of the 1967 race and a Saskatchewan canoe race held in 2005. Currie is passionate about canoeing and Canadian history and hopes the event will stir up interest in both. “I don’t want us as a blink on the highway, this is what we have, this is what we do,” she said as she expressed her desire to host a memorable event for both the brigade participants and those who attend. She hopes there will be room for tents and activities at the top of the hill near the stone cairn. The brigade participants will come down the river in voyageur costumes singing traditional songs and will stay the night at the site.

It will be a unique event and an opportunity for all ages to celebrate the history of Western Canada and the importance of a local historic site. Plans are being made to shuttle people from their cars to the site by horse and cart to prevent congestion. It is also hoped shuttle services from Maidstone will be arranged. Donations of food, beverages and ice are being sought and volunteers are needed to serve food and help out with the event. The brigade will arrive at the site at approximately 4 p.m. on May 20. There will be another planning meeting May 6 at 7 p.m. at the R.M. of Eldon Office in Maidstone. For more information call Vinessa Currie at 895-2001.

Canoeists at Fort May 21 Staff

The 2008 David Thompson Brigade, commemorating the bicentennial of the voyageur’s journey through this area, will be making a stop at Fort Battleford National Historic Site on May 21. Heritage Interpreter Tami Conley-Blais says the canoe paddlers will be met on the riverbank by the community’s two mayors. They will be camping in the field between the Fort’s visitor reception centre and Eiling Kramer Campground and departing the next morning. The group hopes to meet with local residents interested in their trek and in the history of David Thompson, says Conley-Blais, and plans are still underway for activities which may complement the visit. An advance party will have set up camp at the Fort for the arriving voyageurs, and will remain on site for part of the day following the departure of the canoe paddlers for school programming.

Taylor pushes for Sask. Hosp. commitment By John Cairns Staff Reporter

The MLA for the Battlefords says he is pleased with the commitments of the minister of health to continue planning for a new Saskatchewan Hospital. Len Taylor says he is also pleased to see continued planning for the training program for registered psychiatric nurses as well as expansion of the hemo-dialysis unit at Battlefords Union Hospital. He still wants to see some assurances,however, that money set aside for the hospital project under the previous NDP government will still be available for the project. Taylor had an opportunity to question Health Minister Don McMorris for 45 minutes on issues such as Saskatchewan Hospital during a meeting of the Human Services Committee at the legislature April 21. Taylor wanted clarification from the government because he said there was no specific mention of the hospital project in the provincial budget.

“I thought it was important to deal with the uncertainties left in the air because there were no mention of these matters in the provincial budget,” Taylor said by phone from Regina Monday. “So when there was an opportunity to ask the health minister directly, in public on record, about whether or not there was a commitment to Sask. Hospital I took advantage of that opportunity.” During the human services committee meeting Taylor asked the minister point-blank about the government’s commitment to the Sask. Hospital planning process. “I’d just like to establish for the record,” Taylor asked, “is the commitment of the minister towards the completion of the project in North Battleford still there?” McMorris responded. “there is still planning dollars and more planning that needs to be underway, taken before . . . there’s a shovel in the ground or any further work will be done.” McMorris assured Taylor the planning and process “is still moving at the normal

rate.” “There’s one question that is still there, and that is the long-term funding.” Taylor said his government had made a commitment in February 2006 to build the facility and had banked $39 million to be applied against the total costs, provided from previous oil and gas revenues. Taylor is concerned the government changed the nature of the Fiscal Stabilization Fund which provided the $39 million for the hospital project. In committee, McMorris responded the money from the fiscal stabilization fund was moved over to the growth and investment fund. “There’s money in the growth and investment fund that will be moving forward,” McMorris said, adding that the money was projected to be used in a four year period. McMorris also indicated the latest estimate in the plan for the facility was for a cost of $150 million. Taylor still wants assurances that the $39 million that was banked for it is still available given the latest es-

No strings attached Continued from front Tumbach said of the funds from the province. The move to change the mill rate comes after provincial municipal affairs minister Bill Hutchinson announced last Thursday there will be an additional eight per cent increase to municipal revenue sharing. He urged municipalities to use the funding to reduce proposed property tax increases. That eight per cent increase is being added to base funding for municipalities and will bring the total amount of revenue sharing to $140.5 million, for an overall increase of 15 per cent for 2008-09, according to the

government’s press release. It amounts to a $10.41 million increase, on top of a $7.9 million increase announced on budget day. With the changes from the province, administration will be bringing forth two bylaws for the next council meeting. One bylaw will establish the new mill rate factors and the other will be to set the mill rates and base taxes. The announcement means the mill rate increases that were due to come in are going to be lower than first announced in most categories. While most categories will see a smaller increase in the mill rate than first announced, in the commercial sector the rate changes will

result in an actual tax reduction. The mill rate will drop from 44.703 to 43.738. Residential/condo owners assessed at $70,000 can expect to see a $110 increase; multi-family at $70,000 a $259 increase, and for commercial property assessed at $100,000 a tax reduction of $96 can be expected. “We reduce taxes is what it means,” said Tumbach “The province announced more revenue sharing money and we are passing that directly back to the taxpayer.” Tumbach said the changes apply to municipal tax only, and that we will be aware of the full impact on taxpayers once the school board mill rates are set.

April 27 to May 3 is Early Childhood Intervention awareness week and Monday morning a group marked the kickoff with the release of biodegradable balloons. Taking part were officials from North Battleford and Battleford and representatives of the Battlefords Early Childhood Intervention Program (BECIP). BECIP is part of a province-wide network of home-based support services for families with pre-school children who are developmentally delayed or “at risk” for delay. Children, who are mentally, physically, hearing or visually impaired, are also eligible to receive services. Photo by Jayne Foster

timates. “We’ve got the commitment to get the planning finished — we don’t have the firm commitment to longterm funding for the project.” Taylor said the community will need to watch for this in future budget reviews. He is pleased,however, to see planning remains on track. “I give the government some credit that they are committed to the planning for the project,” Taylor said. McMorris indicated there is “absolutely no question” he would argue for the dollars needed to complete the hospital project. The health minister indicated he has “heard some major, major concerns” about the facility.

Armed robbery Staff

North Battleford RCMP seeks the public’s assistance in finding out who committed an armed robbery in the city last Wednesday. On April 23 at 2:30 p.m. a lone male entered a convenience store located in the 1100 block of 107th Street in North Battleford. The suspect was armed and stole a large amount of money before fleeing the scene.

“It’s served its time, it’s served it’ purpose, and . . . it needs to be moved on,” McMorris said during committee. Taylor also said he is convinced planning will continue for the training program for registered psychiatric nurses in the Battlefords. “The minister of health did say our arguments for delivering the psychiatric nurses education program in the Battlefords had merit,” Taylor said. “The delivery of that new program had not been nailed down when the

government changed hands.” Taylor was supportive of the program while he was minister of health, he said, and plans to continue to push for it. Also, Taylor plans to push for expansion of the hemo-dialysis program at Battlefords Union Hospital and believes the only obstacle is staffing the facility. “I was pleased the new minister of health has indicated the issue is not money — it is human resources,” said Taylor. “I am comfortable that the unit will expand when the staff is available.”

Revenue sharing Continued from front $406,250, even though the formula indicated a reduction based on the new census numbers. No municipality, the letter explained, would receive less than the 2007-08 grant, regardless of how the formula worked out. The eight per cent increase announced Friday will be added to the base funding for

Darkman Tattoos

municipalities, bringing the total amount of revenue sharing to municipalities to $140.5 million, a 15 per cent increase for 2008-09. The government has also promised to negotiate a new municipal revenue sharing deal that includes a portion of the province’s own-source revenue.

How many food resources get junked? “We should be feeding our people, not our cars.” That is the mantra of groups opposing the biofuels industry. They argue biofuels production is causing food shortages and hunger in places like Mexico, South American countries and Asia. Their analysis indicates European nations, once at the forefront of the industry, are cooling toward the notion of biofuels as a greener alternative to fossil fuels. This debate rages just as Saskatchewan is poised to ramp up biofuel production, offering producers a new market for products they have, in many cases, been producing at a loss for many years. And, as with any other debate, it can be argued with statistics. One argument in favour of biofuels development claims only two per cent of the world’s agricultural land is currently dedicated to biofuels production. That percentage is predicted to rise to 12 per cent over the next decade. The current debate also often sidesteps the fact biofuels production produces co-products which are a valuable source of livestock feed. Essentially a bushel of canola can produce fuel for vehicles and fuel for bodies in the same process. Whatever side of the biofuels debate you come down on, there’s one more bale of flax that needs to be tossed on the fire. How much of the world’s agricultural efforts ends up in what North Americans refer to as “junk food?” What percentage of arable land is devoted to the production of raw materials for potato chips, Cheezies, corn chips, hickory sticks, piggy puffs, snack crackers, cookies and a host of other high in calorie, low in nutrition foods? Anyone who has been in a North American grocery store knows space allotted to junk food and soft drinks is equivalent to, or larger than, the fresh produce section. Although this isn’t likely the case in countries currently coming up against what the media are excitedly billing as “food shortages,” it is certainly a blatant dichotomy in many developed countries. It’s a statistic worth pursuing. Is it possible the resources currently wasted on these types of “food” products — which not only don’t provide nutrition to the consumer, but indeed are linked to health issues such as obesity, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes (the list is nearly endless) — could be diverted to address the newest media “scare” darling, food shortages. Democratic governments can’t dictate what people can and cannot eat, but if they are really concerned about world hunger and food shortages, a creative approach to diverting all those wasted resources into providing people with real food would be a significant first step. Here’s a simple formula: make junk food extremely expensive; keep real food affordable. — Becky Doig, Editor


Some food for thought tidbits Here’s some food for thought from the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association. The organization, founded in 1994, bills itself as a non-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of renewable fuels for transportation. So, obviously their mandate is clear. They do, however, make some interesting points to ponder while CBC and other large media sources blare the term “food shortages” on a non-stop basis, while citing biofuel production as the main culprit. According to the association, over the past year, oil prices have jumped nearly 100 per cent. In 2007, food prices increased by four per cent. In 2007, the same year the United States produced a record amount of ethanol from corn, the United States increased its surplus of corn to more than 1.4 billion bushels. In a record ethanol year, the United States actually fed more of the world by increasing its exports of corn by six per cent. Food marketing costs now account for 80 per cent of the cost of food. Marketing costs are the difference between the farm value and consumer spending for food at grocery stores and restaurants. Corn accounts for less than five per cent of the price a box of corn flakes. The price of rice is now up 77 per cent since October. Rice is not used is the production of biofuels. Corn for ethanol cannot be grown in rice paddies.

As a whole, fish prices are up. Fuel prices account for approximately 60 to 70 per cent of operating costs of fishermen. Fish are not used in the production of biofuels. An increasing amount of biofuels are produced from nontraditional feedstocks such as waste products from the beverage, food and forestry industries. In the near future, biofuels will be produced from agricultural residues such as grain straw, sugarcane bagasse, corn stover, municipal solid waste and energy crops such as switchgrass and algae.

When in Mexico . . . their rules rule Some day, I would like to go to Mexico. A year ago, in the dead of winter, a lot of people I knew were making their way down to Mexico. Warm sun, nice beaches, awesome diving, what’s not to like? Apparently Brenda Martin found something, namely sitting in a Mexican jail for two years awaiting trial. In late April, she was convicted, and given a five year sentence for “being involved in operations involving illicit funds,” according to the judgment. In a flash, she was signing papers to be transferred to Canada as a prisoner. That was likely her best move, after

From The Top of The Pile

tage. By treaty, she can be sent back to Canada to serve her sentence. Once here, she becomes subject to the Canadian penal system. We saw this happen a number of years ago when a young couple got into some trouble in South America. They were sent back to Canada and promptly paroled. It’s common in Canada to see double time credit awarded for time served while on remand pending trial. Sometimes it even goes higher than that, if there were extenuating circumstances while in remand, such as overcrowding. If this same principle is applied to Martin, she might be credited with time served for the first four years of her sentence, perhaps more. Because it is a penitentiary sentence (over two years), statutory release with one third left in the sentence means she could possibly walk out the door shortly after landing

in Canada. By the time this column hits the press, she might already be breathing free air. If she had been convicted in a Canadian court and handed the same five year sentence after two years of remand, that’s likely exactly what would happen. The chances of her getting a five year sentence from a Canadian court for such an offence are slim to none, however, we’re talking manslaughter range here, not fraud. A Mexican looking at our justice system might throw up their hands and ask what sort of gong show are we running here? A five year sentence means she could possibly walk out the door now? Where is the justice in that? They might have a good point. — Brian Zinchuk is a reporter with Pipeline News. He can be reached at

By Brian Zinchuk rallying the Canadian press behind her and creating a poorme cause celebre. More on that in a minute. There are a few things that bug me about this whole case, and some questions we, as Canadians, need to ask ourselves. Canada has been part of NAFTA for a long time now. We want Mexican trade. We crave Mexican trade. Our people love to visit there. All must be well with the world, right? Mexico is good. Martin lived there for several years, probably because she figured it was a good place to be. Then she got caught up in a criminal case that left her sitting in a less than pretty place. It sure wasn’t a Canadian jail. I doubt there was cable TV. If you’re going to visit another country, that’s one thing. But if you’re going to live there, you had better be prepared to live with the consequences – all of them. Guess what, folks. The rest of the world does not have a Canadian justice system. Apparently in Mexico you’re guilty until proven innocent, the polar opposite of what we practise here. I don’t know if she is indeed guilty or innocent, but she put herself in a position that did her no favours. When in Mexico, live as the Mexicans do, warts and all. If Canada is to be such a good buddy of Mexico, then we have to respect them in more than matters of trade. If a competent court found her guilty, we must respect that. If not, on what basis can we be buddies on other matters, like trade, labour and tourism? Maybe their system is corrupt. Some people might say our system is flawed, too. You don’t have to go too far down the young offender road to find that out. From the outside looking in, it’s pretty easy to be judgmental on something you don’t know or understand. It’s mighty disingenuous for such a stink to be made over one person, who just happens to be a Canadian, and not the rest of the people in their system. I guess they don’t count. I bet if you asked, most of them would say they were innocent, too. This is where being found guilty is to Martin’s advan-

These are salad days for the Sask. Party Consider how good the political situation is for the Saskatchewan Party right now: • It controls all the rural seats in the province but one — half of the entire Saskatchewan Legislative Assembly. It’s majorities in these seats were so large in 2007 that the other parties hardly bothered to contest these ridings and will have little ability to contest them in the 2011 election. • While the Sask. Party is not competitive in every urban and northern seat in the province, it now enjoys the added bonus of having three parties to its left fighting over these seats. This reality was hammered home on Earth Day when the Green Party of Saskatchewan not only announced it planned to be a force in the next election but also said it would make overtures to the Liberal Party to merge. Admittedly, many don’t see this as a big political development. Frankly, it isn’t. With only two per cent of the popular vote in the last provincial election and a mere 200 members right now, the Green Party’s talk of a merging with the Liberals sounds like so much bravado. Besides, even if the remaining Liberal support in Saskatchewan (less than 10 per cent in the 2007 provincial campaign when the party actually did have a leader) could somehow be convinced to merge with the two per cent of Green Party support, it still wouldn’t exactly constitute much of a political force. However, it tells much about exactly how well things are going for the Saskatchewan Party right now. Just look at the status of its rivals right now. The Green Party barely has any support in the cities

and is virtually a non-entity in the rural ridings. That said, the very fact that it can even somewhat credibly talk merging with the Liberals — or at least, poaching their supporters — says much about the mess the Liberals are in. The Liberals are obviously far removed from the party that last governed Saskatchewan 37 years ago or controlled the rural seats along the Alberta and U.S. borders known as the “Liberal L” 30 years ago or even last elected a member to the assembly eight years ago. The

The Provincial Scene By Murray Mandryk current Saskatchewan Liberal party has virtually no support in rural ridings and only spotty, isolated support in a few urban ridings. That leaves the NDP as the remaining alternative for the Saskatchewan — a party that still has 19 members in the legislature (with a 20th likely when the Cumberland seat is filled in a by-election).

While the NDP remain a viable alternative for voters in the north and the cities (and may even pick up some urban support as a result of the Sask. Party government’s labour policies), even the NDP struggled to fill a complete slate of candidates in the 2007 election and had to parachute candidates into the rural ridings. So what’s the significance of all this to the governing Sask. Party? The Sask. Party finds itself in the enviable position that only the NDP in Saskatchewan has enjoyed in recent years. For years, the NDP could pretty much take its urban and northern strongholds for granted. And while the NDP wasn’t necessarily competitive in every rural riding, it certainly was competitive in a few ridings (the old Rosetown or Assiniboia-Gravelbourg seats or, more recently, North Battleford, Yorkton, Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan Rivers seats come to mind) where the Liberals, Conservatives or Sask. Party split votes. Today, it’s the Sask. Party that can now take its rural base as a given. And with the NDP, Liberals and Greens about to duke it out for the same urban and northern voters, it may even be possible for the Sask. Party to start winning on split votes in seats where it has never won before. This is, indeed, a very good situation for the Sask. Party. — Murray Mandryk of the Leader Post is a veteran observer of the Saskatchewan political scene.

Mock trial witness makes his case By Trislan Isaac Freelance Reporter

A North Battleford Comprehensive High School student gave convincing testimony in Saskatoon April 12, while participating in the mock trial competition. James Bush, a Grade 12 student at NBCHS, reaped great rewards and honour for his performance. James was named the best witness in the

whole competition. The mock trial is an educational day, in which students from around the province, travel to the Court of Queen’s Bench court house. Ten teams participated. Each team consists of six people, who carry out the roles of four lawyers and two witnesses. The information brought out by each of the witnesses is displayed in a book which is presented to

JAMES BUSH . . . . Best Witness Award

each of the participants before the special day to study. When the participants arrive at court, they participate in two trials: one trial as the crown and one trial as the defence. They are realistic trials with an audience of provincial judges or lawyers, who decide whether the accused is guilty or not. Bush was playing the part of the accused — a middleaged man who was found with three liquor bottles containing cocaine in his suitcase when coming back from a business trip in Columbia. Bush was stellar in his performance by presenting a unique side of the story. His testimony was proven successful, as he was deemed not guilty, even though, in their comments, the judges said he looked guilty. NBCHS sent two teams to this competition. North Battleford A team consisted of Shayleen Isaac (Grade12), Hazel Allen (Grade 12), Lavinia Floarea (Grade 12), Tessa-Rae Omelchenko (Grade 12), Trislyn Isaac (Grade 10) and Lauren Trotchie (Grade 10). The North Battleford B team consisted of James Bush (Grade 12), Linnea Bargen (Grade 9), Serge Floarea (Grade 9), Taryn Jackson (Grade 9), Taylor Tait (Grade 9), and Zachary Start-Up (Grade 9). The two teams are not complete without the dedicated teachers, Elgin Wyatt, Lynne Thompson and Evan

Reid, who were always there to brainstorm and answer any questions the students had. The students also learned a lot and did well in the competition because of the legal advisor Susan Reid, who donated her time to the teams. The teams enjoyed a deli-

cious dinner, held for all the participants, at TCU Place. This was where awards were given out to the winning team, the Best Defense Lawyer, the Best Crown Lawyer, the Best Individual Overall Performance and Best Witness.

Both the teams won the defence case, but failed to convict when presenting the evidence of the crown. They came home with an experience beyond measure. With exception for the 2008 graduates, the students look forward to next year.

Web-based community directory ready for launch Staff

A web-based community directory is set to be launched later this spring by the Battlefords United Way. The Battlefords Community Service Directory (BCSD) will include a Volunteer Resource Centre and a Community Calendar. The directory section will provide categories under which service providers can publish information about their services, programs, contacts and location. The volunteer section will be a database for individuals or families who wish to volunteer, for organizations who need volunteers, or for corporations, organized labour or businesses that wish to work with the United Way to support employee volunteer initiatives. “The website places volunteers in touch with people and organizations who need their time and expertise,” Shellee Higgs, community

co-ordinator told those at the recent annual meeting of the United Way. “This partnering

will build collaborative relationships and strengthen our community.”

The project was undertaken with funding from W. Brett Wilson and family and the provincial government.

District badminton playoffs NBCHS, Kerrobert, Luseland and Cut Knife each had one team at the tournament. The high school athletes qualified after placing first or second in the conference playoffs, which were held last week. Now the top two teams in each division will be playing in regionals in Saskatoon Saturday. Once the playoff matches started it appeared the level of play increased and the intensity picked up, despite both teams playing in the final match automatically advancing. In the boys doubles final, the two teams battled to three sets in what was a entertaining back and forth battle. The teams in the mixed doubles event also went to three sets and the winners said that was their toughest win all year.

By Trent Cey Sports Reporter

The best badminton players in the division were on the court to compete for a chance to play in the regional tournament. Districts were held at the North Battleford Comprehensive High School on Saturday, and 40 teams from across the Battle West District, which includes the Living Sky School Division and the Light of Christ School Division, took part. Of the 13 different schools on hand Wilkie had the most representation with seven teams. Medstead followed with six and Unity and Macklin each had five teams. Maymont, Leoville and Pelican had three, John Paul II (Light of Christ) and Hafford had two teams and

Gold and silver medalists who will be advancing: Girls singles - Danielle Chamaskese of Pelican beat Kaitlyn Cey of Wilkie. Boys singles - Dane Seidle of Medstead beat Harold Harris of Pelican. Girls doubles - Aletha Martens and Jessica Lybeck of Medstead beat Jill Shepherd and Bryna Jaindl of Wilkie.

Mixed doubles - Brooke Bachman and Ryan Cey of Wilkie beat Landon and Marina Tetrault of Leoville.

Vikings to play in Senior Bowl Darkman Tattoos By Trent Cey Sports Reporter

When the weather is at plus one in April many people shy away from being outside and having to cope with the conditions. That wasn’t the case for three athletes from our area. Three senior football players from North Battleford Comprehensive High School where competing for a spot on the north team for the 24th Annual Football Saskatchewan Senior Bowl Game. Drew Balfour, Riley Graw

and Ambrose Hartman all tried out and made the team. Their size and strength is really impressive said a member of the Comp. coaching staff. The two linemen and one defensive back have the opportunity to get their names out and scouted on the football field. The game was developed in 1985 to promote and develop football for residents of Saskatchewan. The first step to making this team is to stand out on a high school team and get nominated by coaches to at-

tend the camps which include a series of tests such as 40 and 20 yard sprints, vertical jump, shuttle run, standing broad jump and a bench press. Coaches around the Vikings last season believed all three of the players would make the team and two other from NBCHL tried out as well. The Comp takes pride in their football program and the opportunity for these players to continue with football is something to be proud of, said members of the coaching staff. Of the 88 players from

northern Saskatchewan who attended the tryout camp, 45 players made the final roster after the four practice sessions April 19 and 20. The players were introduced to the playbook and will be ready for the game on May 19 at Mosaic Stadium in Regina after a weekend of practices. The venue switches from Regina and Saskatoon each year. Currently the south team leads the series 13-10 with the last two games being shutouts, one by each team.

Minor baseball numbers up. Season starts soon By Trent Cey Sports Reporter

Minor Baseball To start preparing for baseball, players still have to throw snowballs instead of playing catch, but the season is right around the corner. This year more kids signed up to play, leading to more teams said North Battleford Minor Baseball president Ron Balfour. The number of registered ball players went up about 20 from last year putting the total just under 200.

The Rookie division will have four teams with kids age six and seven. The teams use a pitching machine and focus more on practice and learning the basics of baseball than games. In Mosquito, five local teams, and possibly Wilkie, will make up a house league and play once a week. Peewee will have five teams, and will also make a tournament team to go to exhibition games and tournaments on the weekends. The Peewee division plans not to send a team to provincials

which will be held in Estevan. For the first time in awhile there will be three Bantam teams and a provincial team put together from the Battlefords near the end of the season. The Midgets again will be in the North Saskatchewan River Baseball League with a young roster, but look forward to the competition as they prepare for AA provincials. “Their defence should be competitive again this year, but pitching and hitting are

always tough,” said Balfour, who is helping to coach the Midgets as well as the Mosquitos. Most of the teams will be selected this week and, whenever the weather co-operates, they will be out on the diamonds. Until then, some teams hope to practise in the Civic Centre to get ready for their seasons, which should start around May 12. All the teams, with the exception of the Mosquito division, will play their games at Centennial Park.

More than smoke filled the arena at wildlife supper By Trent Cey Sports Reporter

The Battlefords Wildlife Federation held its 63rd annual Smoker this past weekend and nearly had to hang a no vacany sign on the front door of the Civic Centre. The crowd of wildlife enthusiasts and buffet supper lovers filled the arena and at one point during the event the line for food was wrapped all the way along the boards. Many who take in the Smoker annually said this is the best crowd they have seen in years. People were taking their plates and eating in the stands since no room was left at the tables. The number of prizes the Wildlife Federation was able to round up and raffle off, as door prizes, silent auction prizes and raffle giveaways was amazing. It would be hard to find someone who left uphappy with the quality of food and prizes on site.

Super pest going to new lengths in the NHL playoffs New York Ranger forward Sean Avery’s actions were the cause of a new rule for screening goalies Easton, Louisville and RBK sell the top of the line hockey sticks for hundreds of dollars; the science that goes into making a hockey stick was to help improve the performance of the stick and player holding it. Now the NHL’s super pest, Sean Avery, has found a whole new way to use those sticks, not by scoring and stick handling or even as a weapon, but to distract and screen the goalie. What New York Ranger Avery did in the series against Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils was an embarrassment to the game and showed a complete lack of respect. Avery turned his back to the play and, while his team controlled the puck on a 5on-3 power play, he stood at

the edge of the crease waving his stick in the face of Brodeur. To top it off, 20 seconds later he scored a goal. Once the series was over Brodeur, who is one of the best ambassadors for the league, couldn’t bring himself to shake hands with Avery. For a player to take away arguably the best goalie in the game’s “desire to play”, then you know he went too far. “The series was a circus,” said Brodeur after losing out of the playoffs in five games. Avery was not the only New York Ranger to do this. Brendan Shanahan did the same thing, but within the newly implemented Avery rule stating you can’t turn and face the goalie.

Shanahan faced the play and used his arms instead of his stick. I understand that it is playoffs and teams will do anything to get the edge over

Maybe it is time the NHL becomes stricter about the blue ice area and goaltender interference. No one wants them to go back to the days when a toe

in the crease was not allowed, or allowed in the case of Brett Hull and the Dallas Stars, but there has to

be some constancy with the officials and the league rule. The Rangers aren’t the only team causing major problems for the goalies. Philadelphia has also pulled some ‘ accidental’ stunts which have resulted in a goal against Washington, a helmetless goalie dumped in the corner against Montreal and a rattled young rookie in his first period of the playoffs in the same game against Montreal. With the new rule enforcement of defencemen battling in front or lack there- of, it is nearly impossible to move a player that is in front of the goalie. When the players use that to their advantage problems arise. Players go to the net with no fear of hitting a post since

the nets pop off easily enough and there is no concern about the players stopping them. It is a helpless feeling for the teams, who know they have to protect their goalie but can’t do it. Young goalies such as Carey Price and MarcAndre Fleury have to deal with sticks flying at them while the goalies in the west have to deal with old fashioned Tomas Holmstrom and Ryan Smyth. When asked if he would do what Avery did in the Stanley Cup final in a game seven to beat the goalie, Mark Recchi, a Stanley Cup champion, said he absolutely would never do that. There is the honourable way, and then the Avery way.

take in and enjoy. The first concert, performed by the Battlefords Concert Band’s more experienced players, will be Sunday, May 4 at 2 p.m. at Territorial Drive Alliance Church. It will have an international flavour, in which listeners will be reminded of different cultures and eras. There will be Korean, English, American and Scottish influences to the band’s music. The American influences include a medley by Aaron Coplan, arranged by Clare Grundman, of his famous compositions Appalachian Suite and Fanfare for the Common Man and a John Phillip Sousa March. There will be a selection based on Korean folk songs that features the percussion section, playing on instruments that are new additions to the band’s percussion equipment set.

English sea-faring culture is evoked by a wonderful melodic piece by English composer Ralph VaughanWilliams. Another section evokes images of camel riding gypsies in the Saudi Arabian desert. This selection is in arrangement of the film score for the classic movie Lawrence of Arabia. Scottish culture is represented by a piece called Ye Banks and Braes of Bonny Doon; the poetry associated with this piece is written by Robbie Burns. Another English influence is the second suite by English born composer Gustav Holst. This May 4 concert also features music by a quartet from the clarinet section of the band. The second concert, by the intermediate level band, Battlefords Concert Band II, will be Monday, May 5, 7 p.m. at the city Kinsmen Band Hall. The special guests for this second concert are the Kinsmen Choir. In the music mix for this concert are two hymns, one of which is the Battle Hymn of the Republic. Also featured is a march called Omaha Beach, the toe-tapping rhythms of The CanCan associated with dance music and a piece symbolizing the sounds of trains, featuring the percussion section. Tickets, good for both concerts, are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased from band members. Ticket information is available by phoning the band hall at 4455013.

Ode to Territorial Trail By Walter Zamonsky We all walk the Territorial Trail. Trail blazers; guides; pioneers. There comes a time, of trail’s end in sight Reminiscent of the paths left behind. All walk the path of their own accord. Some follow right behind; others, Streak by as meteors in the sky Riding their bicycles, sitting high With no regard for you and I. Others trudge behind, heavily, wearily, With limp, cane or thought. Plodding, lagging behind. At times we have all had a long climb. The youth jogging in rhythm Not encumbered by time. What a joy it is to see them. New hope, such as was mine. We have walked the course, fought a good fight. Left bitterness and prejudice behind On our lofty climb. It’s been an ideal walk On the Territorial Trail by the Territorial Drive. It has not been an erratic or uneven course or line But a steady growth towards the divine. Daily walking the trail of human hope Which could be yours, as it is mine.

Calves successfully weather the storm Folkert ( Tom) Terpstra Sr. immigrated from Holland in 1910 to the Edam area. He was a tin smith by trade and, in 1927, designed and crafted a copper rooster weather vane for the steeple of the church. At this time copper

By Brenda Pollard Correspondent

It is hard to believe we are dealing with bigger snow banks now than we have had all winter. Amazingly enough our calves are dealing with it quite well and so far, knock on wood, all seem healthy. Luckily we were nearly done calving when this hit. There are producers who schedule their calving season for this time of the year to miss the cold and storms. This year has resulted in high losses and sick calves for some. Last week I reported on the rooster for the steeple of Christ the King Parish Church. I made a mistake, saying it was made of copper like the original. It is made of stainless steel, but the original copper bracket holds it to the steeple. The Edam Catholic Church was built in 1926.


NOTABLES was scarce, but where there’s a will, there is a way. The rooster was crafted from an old copper still. It remained at the top of the steeple until 2007. When he was four years old, George Levasseur’s family arrived at Edam in 1919 from Montreal, Que. George was a parishioner of

Christ the King Parish and throughout his life he admired the rooster. In 2001 George passed away and left in his will money to go toward something for the church. The family decided it would be fitting that this money go to the replacement of the old rooster that was showing its age. The original pattern was made out of brown paper and had been kept all this time by Wilma Hardcastle (Tom’s daughter). It was given to Kevin Heisler of Paradise Hill who is a welder. He crafted the rooster out of stainless steel and reused the original copper bracket to hold the rooster on the steeple. In 2008 the rooster will be placed on the steeple by George’s family in loving memory of their husband, father, grandfather and greatgrandfather. George’s daughter, Doris Forsythe, has writ-

ten up the history of the rooster and it, as well as the framed brown paper pattern, will be placed in Harry Washbrook Museum. The Edam Discount Center would like to let their patrons know they will be closing for the summer on May 22. This will give them time to get the recyclables counted and transported out. The area will be cleaned up for the elementary track meet which will be taking place early in June. They thank the community for their support throughout the year and look forward to serving you again in the fall. The March Accelerated Reading top three point achievers are as follows.

SJS Big Band at the Legion Saturday After a couple of years of trying, the Battlefords Jazz Society finally has the privilege to bring the SJS Big Band to the Battlefords on Saturday, May 3 at the North Battleford Legion. The band is led by Saskatoon trombonist Larry Hume and includes North Battleford’s own Jack Tatchell on trumpet. Opening the show is the King Street Station Jazz

Band, an all-Battlefords Band featuring Jack Tatchell - trumpet, Garnet Speer tenor sax, David Decker alto sax, Dave Leuty - trombone, Don Tatchell - drums, Tom Kroczynski - bass and Diane Gryba - keyboards. The SJS Big Band has been around for the last 25 years but not always as a working group. After a lull in activity, Larry Hume started the band back up about four

years ago. At that time the group consisted of six members and got together to have fun and make a bit of music. Today they boast 17 members with a waiting list of those wishing to join. Also, a second band of intermediate players meets regularly, again, under the direction of Larry Hume. The SJS Big Band has played regularly at the Bassment in Saskatoon, and

the SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival as well as at many private events. According to Larry, the band specializes in big band stuff from the likes of Stan Kenton, Quincy Jones and Duke Ellington as well as Latin pieces and more contemporary jazz pieces written for big band.

Made up of Saskatoon players (other than Jack Tatchell) the band is the best the city has to offer, They come highly recommended in jazz circles and are hot and ready to play. This will be a great show and with the Battlefords’ own King Street Station Jazz Band kicking things off and

Never walk away from Wisdom, she guards your life; love her — she keeps an eye on you. Write this at the top of your list: Get understanding! Throw your arms around her — believe me, you won’t regret it; never let her go- — she’ll make your life glorious. She’ll garland your life with grace, she’ll festoon your days with beauty.” God bless you all.

Catholic Education Day celebrates partnerships, world wide contributions On Thursday, May 1 the schools in Light of Christ Catholic School Division will be celebrating World Catholic Education Day. On this day, Catholics celebrate the unique identity and distinctive contributions of Catholic Education in the lives of people around the world. Millions of students attend Catholic schools worldwide. The Saskatchewan Conference of Catholic Bishops has sent a letter to every parish in the province acknowledging this day. They also

expressed their sincere appreciation for all the partners in Catholic education including trustees, administrators, teachers, support staff, pastors, parish ministers, parish teams and parents for supporting children through the gift of Catholic Education. Students in Saskatchewan have a constitutional right to publicly funded Catholic education. Through eight Catholic school divisions in the province, over 35,000 students are educated from kindergarten to Grade 12 in 119 Catholic schools.

Light of Christ Catholic School Division includes eight schools. There are four elementary schools and one high school in North Battleford and elementary schools in Wilkie, Unity and Spiritwood. These schools will be celebrating World Catholic Education Day in a variety of ways from Eucharistic celebrations to living rosaries, to school assemblies highlighting student talent. The entire school division will join together in a common prayer said at each school at 11 a.m. Thursday.

What do you think makes Catholic education unique?

The News-Optimist, North Battleford, Sask.

Live each day in anticipation of ‘the’ day Since the days when Christ walked the earth, would-be prophets have been trying to predict the day of His return. In ancient times, Martin of Tours said it would happen before 400 AD. Others guessed it would be the year 1033, a thousand years after the crucifixion. One pope calculated it would happen in the year 1284, because that was 666 years after the founding of Islam. Centuries later, thousands committed suicide to keep out of the clutches of the Antichrist whom they thought would appear in 1669. Several cults have confidently assured adherents that Christ was definitely returning in 1843, or 1850 — or was it 1914? More recently, prognosticators have said it would happen in 1936, or 1975, or 1982, or 1988, 2012 or . . . Sincere as these may have been, they were all sincerely wrong! That the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again is a truth affirmed hundreds of times in the Bible. Jesus Himself said, “I will come

again.” (Jn. 14:3; cf. Rev. 22:20) His return is “the blessed hope” of the church.” (Tit. 2:13; cf. Acts 1:11) However, the timing of that climactic event is known only to God. After assuring His hearers that future watchers “will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory,” Jesus added, “but of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” (Matt. 24:30, 36) When His disciples asked when the messianic kingdom would be set up Jesus responded, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.” (Acts 1:7) Given these facts, it is sad when individuals think they have discovered some secret code, or some hidden meaning in the Scriptures which can reveal facts we are specifically told we are not meant to know. It is a serious matter to stick one’s prophetic neck out like that.

In Israel, making predictions which did not come to pass was a capital offense

untaught it may seem the Bible has been proven wrong.

Words For The Pilgrim Way Meditations on Our Traditional Hymns Robert Cottrill, B.A., B.R.E.

(Deut. 18:20-22)! When these supposed revelations are presented as “certain,” then fail to transpire, it brings discredit on the Bible and the Christian gospel. Though such is not the case, to the

It is right and good to look forward to Christ’s coming (II Tim. 4:7-8), and to live expectantly in light of the promises of God’s Word (I Thess. 1:9-10). The many characteristics of the end

times described in the Bible, and evident in our day, are sign posts pointing to the imminent return of Christ. Today could be the day! Or maybe not. We can leave the timing with God who knows best. Date-setting is pointless. It only breeds confusion and disappointment. The important thing is we walk in faith and obedience, serving Him faithfully in the meantime. “Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He [Christ] is pure.” (I Jn. 3:2-3) That is the thrust of a 1910 hymn called Is It the Crowning Day? The song was written by Bible teacher and evangelist Henry Ostrom (1862-1941), who was born in Ontario, Canada. Older

hymn books may list the writer as George Walker Whitcomb. That was a pen name Ostrom adopted because he wanted to use his hymn in meetings without drawing attention to himself as the author. The hymn says, “Jesus may come today — / Glad day! Glad day! / And I would see my Friend; / Dangers and troubles would end / If Jesus should come today. / Glad day! Glad day! Is it the crowning day?” Other stanzas add, “I may go home today . . .” and “Faithful I’ll be today . . .” Students who heard Dr. Ostrom’s dynamic preaching at Moody Bible Institute in his later years were frequently challenged with his words, “This may be the crowning day!” Yes, it could be.

way we live each day.” Saskatoon speaker Jerry Markin compared God’s word, the Bible, to a compass that will keep us focused on extolling God. Sid Unra from Kindersley spoke of glorifying God with dress and grooming. He said everyone needs to exercise good judge-

ment in this aspect in life. David Wells from Swift Current recounted how some who are mentioned in the Bible used their lives telling others about God. Wells said, “Jehovah’s Witnesses intend to keep telling others in their community about God’s kingdom government.”

Village tackles ambitious cleanup agenda By Helena Pike Correspondent

The Waseca village council is embarking on an ambitious village cleanup and beautification project. The 2008 village cleanup will take place May 3 beginning at 9 a.m. Those taking part are asked to meet at the park by the village office. For the first time there will be an opportunity for villagers and out of town residents to get rid of their household appliances, TVs, computers, scrap metal and hazardous waste. These items can be dropped off from 9:30 to 11 a.m. only on May 3. From 9:30 a.m. on there will be an opportunity to have tree branches, deadfall, grass clippings and wood materials picked up from village yards. Owners must be on hand to assist with loading. There will also be an opportunity to have unwanted or “junked” vehicles removed from yards within the village if the owners contact the village office. Anyone interested in joining, or volunteering for, the Waseca Communities in

Police warn of scam Staff

MAIDSTONE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Maidstone RCMP are warning the public about an advertising fraud scam. The scam involves an ad in Auto/RV/ATV/Boat Trader magazines, newspapers or on the Internet. Police say the ad will advertise a vehicle or ATV for sale at a significantly discounted price. The victim contacts the seller about the product, a deposit amount is agreed upon, along with product shipping details. The seller will send pictures of the product along with the vehicle identification number so the buyer can perform a search the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s/ATVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

history for liens and previous accidents. RCMP say, in reality, the vehicle/ATV is either fictional or is being sold to several buyers at the same time. The buyer is told the vehicle is not located in the sellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s area, but after a large payment is completed, the seller will ship the product to the buyer. The seller will ask for a wire transfer of funds or cash. The seller asks the buyer to pay the remaining amount after the product is delivered. The agreed sum of money is generally a large amount, usually half of the asking price. The seller will send a shipping tracking number along

with a website address where the product can be tracked. The web page appears real and the buyer can even search for their product being shipped. Police say the shipping companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s web page is a fake, set up to trick buyers and assist with the advertising scam. By the time the buyer realizes the product is not being delivered, the sellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phone is no longer in service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buyers beware. If it looks too good to be true, it is likely a scam,â&#x20AC;? advises Sgt. Brad Zerr. Buyers can visit, read about and report possible scams by logging on to

Riders looking forward to motocross season By Helena Pike Correspondent

It is nice to see the sunshine after a number of days of dull weather, not to mention the snow. The voices of some different birds can also be heard. I think the birds are happy to have some more pleasant weather. Maverick and Dalton Young are looking forward to the motocross season which begins soon. The Lloydminster races will be held in June. Last week they spent some time on the

Lloydminster track doing some work on it. Meanwhile they, along with their parents, Kim and Darren, earlier trav-

FINLAY, Brian — The family of Brian Finlay are deeply saddened to announce his sudden passing on April 17, 2008 at the age of 50 years. Brian Clarence Finlay was born on August 21, 1957, in Vanguard, Saskatchewan. He was the son of Clarence and Rita Finlay. In the summer of 1976, Brian met his loving wife Hilda. They married on July 30, 1977. They had one daughter, Wendy. Brian farmed for most of his life, but also spent some time driving truck both for himself and for other companies. In 2005, he got a job working for the R.M. of Meeting Lake. He enjoyed both his job and his coworkers and he enjoyed the fact that he was home with his wife every night. Brian was a kind, caring, loving family man. He was a very devoted husband and he was always proud of his daughter. He loved spending time with his brother Ron and sister-in-law Mary Ann and their children and grandchildren. Brian also enjoyed spending time with his brother-in-law and sister-inlaw Gordon and Shirley Weenk and their family. He had a wonderful sense of humour and enjoyed a good laugh at any time. Brian didn’t even mind if the laughter was directed at him sometimes. He had many hobbies and interests. In his younger years, Brian enjoyed hunting and fishing. He always enjoyed woodworking and built several pieces of furniture in his home. In the last few years, Brian enjoyed gardening and took great pride in his yard and garden. He loved to cook meals for his family. Brian enjoyed helping Hilda upholster furniture, and was always amazed at how something that was old could look just like new when they were finished with it. His final and unfinished project was carving a bear from a large tree trunk that he hauled into the yard. He was carving it with his chainsaw and side grinder. On the morning of April 17, 2008, Brian passed away very suddenly with his wife Hilda at his side. Brian, we will always love you and never forget the wonderful, loving person that you were. So until we meet again, goodbye for now. Love, your family. Brian is remembered by his loving wife of 30 years, Hilda of Mayfair, SK; his daughter Wendy Finlay of Saskatoon, SK; his brother Ron (Mary Ann) Smith of Mayfair, SK and their children ~Laura (Craig) Taylor and their daughter Meagan ~Deborah (Neil) Gaboury and their children Gracie and Holly ~Jason Smith as well as numerous relatives and friends.

Checking in with Michelle Nolden Weekday Early Morning

Nolden loves ‘NUMB3RS’ By Kate O’Hare © Zap2it

Even though she’s married to another man and has a 14-monthold baby, Michelle Nolden just can’t seem to stay away from actor Rob Morrow, who’s also married to someone else and is a father On the Showtime series “Street Time,” Morrow played parolee Kevin Hunter, a former smuggler, and Nolden played his wife, Rachel. Then, a couple of seasons ago, Nolden joined Morrow on his current series, CBS’ Friday crime procedural ‘NUMB3RS.” She played assistant U.S. attorney Robin Brooks, who winds up in a romance with Morrow’s character, FBI agent Don Eppes. “I think we have the same chemistry that we had on ‘Street Time,’ ” Nolden says. “What’s different this time is we’re on the right side of the law. (Then), we were on the wrong side of the law. “I’m one of Rob’s biggest fans, so it’s always a pleasure for me to work with him.”

Now, Robin’s back, just in time to cause new romantic complications for Don, who was most recently dating FBI colleague Liz Warner (Aya Sumika). “They had left things open with Don and Robin,” Nolden says, “so there was always a potential that I could come back. “They didn’t kill me, and if you’re not dead, there’s always a potential to come back. ... So I’m really thrilled we finally got to do it.” Of course, there are still problems. “They’re both commitment-phobic people,” Nolden says, “so the question is who’s willing to put themselves on the line first.”

Birthplace: Brantford, Ontario, Canada. School cred: The Ryerson Theater School in Toronto. She also studied with Uta Hagen, David Rotenberg, Miriam Lawrence, The Actor’s Network, Bruce Clayton, Atraworks and Equity Showcase. TV cred: Regular roles on “Earth: Final Conflict” and “Street Time.” Guest roles on “La Femme Nikita,” “The Zack Files,” “Nero Wolfe,” “Kevin Hill,” “ReGenesis,” “Ghost Whisperer,” “CSI: Miami,” “Crossing Jordan,” “Everwood” and the upcoming Canadian miniseries “ZOS: Zone of Separation,” about military observers in Bosnia (the show was filmed both in Canada and Bosnia).

Applegate had ‘Heart’ before ‘Samantha’

By Jay Bobbin © Zap2it : In articles I have read about Christina Applegate, I’ve never seen mention of a series she was in before ‘‘Married ... With Children.” I think her character’s father was a policeman, and the name of the series was ‘‘Heart of the City.” Am I correct on this? —Dean Christina Applegate Armstrong, Ringling, Okla. : You are. The drama aired on ABC during the 1986-87 season, with current ‘‘Samantha Who?” actress Applegate as one of the two children of a Los Angeles cop whose wife had been murdered. The dad was portrayed by Robert Desiderio, whose wife had a series on the same network at the time; she’s Judith Light, the ‘‘Who’s the Boss?” star who has been back on ABC lately on ‘‘Ugly Betty.” Jonathan Ward played Desiderio’s other offspring on ‘‘Heart of the City.” : What happened to Maya Rudolph? Why didn’t she return to ‘‘Saturday Night Live” after the writers strike? —Marvin Gatch, Denver : Bear in mind this column is written several weeks before it’s published, so the situation may have changed after that — but as of this writing, Rudolph had been working without a contract this season, her eighth on the NBC




late-night staple. Chances are extremely good her recent absences have been related to that. : I recently watched the movie ‘‘Code 11-14” on Hallmark Channel, and it is driving me crazy trying to remember the name of the actress who played David James Elliott’s wife and the show she was in. Please help. —Donya Fulcher, Baytown, Texas : It was Terry Farrell, best-known for playing diner owner Reggie on ‘‘Becker” — which now has its first season on DVD, as of the start of this month — and, while sporting more makeup, Lt. Cmdr. Jadzia Dax on ‘‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.” At the start of her career in the mid-1980s, Farrell portrayed teen model Laurie Caswell on ‘‘Paper Dolls.” : I am inquiring about whether or not ‘‘Wildfire” is ever returning to ABC Family. Normally, it would be on from the start of January through May or so. —Carol Deal, Oregon, Ohio : Look for its return this Monday, April 28. The show’s current season was designed for it to take a break in March to allow for the run of the unscripted series ‘‘America’s Prom Queen,” but ‘‘Wildfire” will play out its remaining weekly episodes uninterrupted. As of this writing, there was no word on whether the show would be renewed for next season. : Could you tell me where I can get a DVD of a movie called ‘‘29th Street,” which was about a lottery ticket and starred Danny Aiello? And was it a feature film or a movie for television? —Frances Tripi, Milwaukee : The fact-inspired story, also featuring Anthony LaPaglia (‘‘Without a Trace”), was released theatrically by 20th Century Fox in 1991. It’s been on DVD since 2005; we don’t provide free advertising for specific merchants, but if you type the movie’s title and ‘‘DVD” into an Internet search engine, you easily should find sellers who have it to offer.

Suspicious person, vehicle sought Staff

MAIDSTONE — A suspicious vehicle was lurking near a school yard playground in Maidstone Thursday evening, according to RCMP. The vehicle’s occupant attempted to convince a child, who was at the playground at around 6:30 p.m., to accept a ride home, police say. Maidstone RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspicious person and vehicle. The vehicle sat in the parking lot of the school while the occupant watched the child play. The vehicle circled the street and returned, police say. The child reported the male driver offered a ride home. The child told the man no. The vehicle then drove away. RCMP say the child did not recognize the vehicle nor the man’s voice and wasn’t able to provide a description of him. Police say the vehicle is possibly a 1990s style red van. The van has a sloping front end, so could be a Chevy Lumina or similar style van. The RCMP remind all parents to educate their children on what the term stranger means and describe to the children how they can keep safe when approached by strangers. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Maidstone RCMP Detachment at 306-893-4800 , Crime Stoppers at 1-306-825-TIPS (8477), through SaskTel Mobility Network at *8477, or online at
