Golf course $s

Council upholds decision to axe grant By Jayne Foster Staff Reporter

The North Battleford Golf and Country Club needs some serious dollars, said Battleford town councillor Garth Walls Monday, and a token $3,000 from the town isn’t going to make much difference. Walls made his remarks when debate over whether to help the golf course with taxpayers’ dollars came up again at Battleford town hall for the third week in a row. Walls said he has had a look at the country club’s budget, and they need some serious fundraising, he said.

The club makes it possible for a number of groups to hold very successful fundraisers, and another event or two a year could be held for their own benefit, said Walls. “We are not going to short the golf course,” said Mayor Chris Odishaw, who added he has already made phone calls to various insurance companies on the possibility of a $10 million hole in one fundraiser. In a budget meeting three weeks ago, councillors voted against granting the golf course the same $3,000 it had approved the past three years, based on the idea that help-

ing with marketing and fundraisers would be more effective. Two councillors, David George and Derek Mahon, maintained their disappointment over the vote. It shows a bad attitude, said Councillor Mahon. To Councillor Donna Lavin’s comment that the golf course is a business, Councillor George pointed out it is community-owned and is for everybody’s use. It’s an integral part of the community, he said. Mahon and George declined the offer of a second vote on the matter, saying it was over and they should just move on.

Birds of prey trade

35 charges are laid, more pending By Jayne Foster Staff Reporter

At least 35 charges have been laid after a search warrant executed on Linda’s Pawn, Furniture and Collectibles on 101st Street in North Battleford in February. According to Gary Provencher of the Saskatchewan Ministry of the Environment, 26 people have been investigated and some have been charged. The investigation was around the sale and purchase of birds of prey, including eagles, and the sale and purchase of eagle parts, and parts of other birds of prey. ®

As of Thursday, the investigation had resulted in 20 charges involving the trafficking of wildlife, six involving possession of wildlife and nine involving possession of wildlife without a licence. The investigation is continuing, Provencher told the News-Optimist, and more charges may be laid. A court date has been set for June 2. Following the execution of the search warrant, a sign was posted on the door of the business owned by Linda Bomok stating, “closed until further notice.” However, it did re-open for a short time.

Downtown businesses sweep into spring By John Cairns Staff Reporter

If you saw more people sweeping the downtown streets Monday morning, that was no accident. Downtown businesses and the city of North Battleford promoted a downtown cleanup May 12, from 10 a.m. until noon. The Downtown Business Association partnered with the city to clean up the areas from Railway Avenue up to 13th Avenue, including 100th, 101st and 102nd Streets in downtown. Garbage bags were distributed to area businesses by the city, with a pickup service in place to retrieve the bags after the cleanup was done. Several businesses took part in the cleanup efforts. David Price of Logan’s Audio-Video was one of the people who pitched in to sweep the area outside his downtown store. “I think it’s important to have our city clean,” said Price, “both for visitors coming to the city and for the people living here.” Bob MacKay, manager of Battlefords Funeral Service, was out in front of his offices, cleaning up the sidewalks. “North Battleford is a beautiful community to live in, and we beautify it even more by keeping our premises clean and tidy and

presentable to the public,” Mackay said. He said he noticed there were city employees at Lakeland Library regional office and in front of city hall cleaning up. There were also visible cleanup efforts in front of the Eiling Kramer Building and in back alleyways throughout the downtown area. Crews from the parks department were highly visible in the cleanup efforts. Mayor Julian Sadlowski personally helped clean litter from the streets. Denis Lavertu, director of business development for the city, said the cleanup is important as a way to revitalize downtown. “This is a first initiative for our downtown development plan,” Lavertu said. “We first want to get it looking really great.” Lavertu said the city plans to bring in incentives for new development to restore and refurbish business fronts. They also want to look at ways to add some strategically enhanced parking and also beautify the city. “We want to try and attract and promote our downtown to bring more business downtown,” Lavertu said. He adds the city encourages other businesses throughout the city to take part with cleanup efforts of their own. Lavertu said the city is also serious about erasing the efforts of graffiti artists.

Putting a price on B’fords history By Jayne Foster Staff Reporter

What is history worth? In terms of keeping a heritage alive, some could argue history is priceless, but the reality is dollar figures can, and do, get applied to the tangible representation of times past — and to the highest bidder goes the spoils. Don Light, son of the Fred Light Museum’s namesake, was at an auction in Winnipeg recently, successfully bidding on pieces of Battleford’s past. So far he has spent between $7,000 and $8,000 acquiring artifacts from the collection of

his brother Doug Light of Calgary. “I was very pleased to have got them,” says Don of the items he acquired in Winnipeg. While there were hundreds of items at the auction, Don came home with about 20 lots that were pertinent to Battleford’s history — from North West Mounted Police artifacts to Boer War medals. He hopes to obtain more items from the Doug Light collection, including some which have been marked for retrieval from the Fred Light Museum. Items from Doug’s collec-

tion have been displayed at the museum on a rotating basis since it opened in 1980. Currently there are still many artifacts on display there that, now Doug is in long term care for Alzheimer’s Disease, could be retrieved for sale, including uniforms, photos and other artifacts. So far, Don has been investing his own money, but he and fellow historians also hope the public and local businesses will show an interest. No date has been announced for a second sale by Marway Militaria, however the catalogue from the April sale stated Doug Light’s col-

lection would take several sales to disperse. The first sale covered the badges and insignia of the RCMP and military. Owner Wayne Cline also

wrote in the catalogue, “Doug was a long time friend and confident and his knowledge and humour will be missed by me and his many friends in the collecting fra-

ternity. It is Meriel’s [Mrs. Doug Light’s] wish that all inquiries in regard to Doug’s collection be directed to us and we will try to resolve them.”

NB riding building surge By John Cairns Staff Reporter

Values for building permits in North Battleford were up again in April, on the heels of provincial numbers indicating a continued rise in the rest of the province. Permit values tripled in the city for the month of April 2008 compared to the same month a year earlier. A total of 25 permits were issued for a value of $3,463,000 compared to 15 permits for $1,132,000. Leading the pace has been a request for 10 new condo units valued at $2,053,000, compared to none in 2007. These permits were granted to Do-All Holdings, who are building two five-unit condominiums on Amos Drive. There were also increases in values for new dwelling permits in April, with five permits issued for $1,110,000 compared to three for $652,000 in April 2007. There was also a slight increase in the value of garage and carport permits, from $38,500 to $50,000. The value of residential alterations was down slightly from $83,500 in April 2007 to $40,000 in April 2008, but there has been an increase in demand for residential alterations throughout this year. There have been 14 residen-

tial alteration permits issued for $1,543,000 in 2008, compared to seven permits for $109,000 a year earlier. “Things are good, things are very busy,” said Jerry Wintonyk, building inspector for the city of North Battleford. “I have permit applications on my desk for more housing, so it’s going to be a very good year,” he said. The local numbers come on the heels of numbers released by the province for the month of March. Building permit values in Saskatchewan recorded the second highest increase in the nation during the month of March, 2008. The March values totaled $146 million, up from $110 million recorded in March of 2007. The only province recording a higher increase than Saskatchewan is Newfoundland and Labrador, which is up 34.9 per cent in March thanks to an economic spinoff from the oil boom. The city of North Battleford outpaced Saskatchewan in the month of March. It was up to $2,003,000 from $594,000 the year before, an almost quadrupling of value. As well, residential building permits are up across Saskatchewan from $71 million in March 2007 to $95 million in March 2008. North

Battleford also saw the value of its residential building permits go up that month, with residential alteration permits rising in value from $18,000 to $283,000 during March. Businesses are noticing the increase in activity. Local building contractors have found they have been busy doing home alterations and other assorted work. “I’ve been pretty steady with renovations,” said Floyd Andersen, local building contractor. “I know there’s lots of housing going on, but I’ve been pretty steady with renovations for the last year and a half, booked up for months.” Anderson has been in business for close to three decades, and mainly does smaller renovations. The demand for alterations has kept him on the move. “A lot of people are upgrading their houses,” he said. Compared to what he’s seen in the area before the work has “doubled or tripled.” There is so much work that he has to turn people away and refer them elsewhere, he said. “You talk to other contractors and they’re all booked up,” said Andersen. “I don’t know why the boom is happening but it’s all right with me,” he said.

Cleanup crew walks into hot situation flames under control. People on the scene said officials had been on the lookout for fires on the island all week. There had been earlier incidents of fires on the island and officials had been on the lookout for more possible outbreaks. “We had seen burn marks in the area,” said teacher Carla Bernier. She did not know what caused the fire. “I would hate to speculate, but I hope it’s stopped,” Bernier said at the time. The fire created plenty of

unexpected excitement for the students of Connaught school, who had come down to help clean up the island area. A busload of students was at the island and had spent an hour combing the area for garbage and debris in order to make the island look sparkling for springtime. The outing was part of the school’s celebration of volunteerism. After the cleanup was over refreshments were provided for the students.

Students helping to tidy up Finlayson Island needed more than just garbage bags during their spring cleanup of the area. They also needed a fire hose. The Connaught School students were surprised to

find a brush fire burning in the woods on the eastern tip of the island, a few metres from the North Saskatchewan River. Oren Buck, Clarence Buck and Michael Mitchell were on the scene cleaning up when they saw “black smoke” in the area, they said. “We heard some girls screaming,” Clarence said,

before going over to check out the fire. “It was pretty big and we jumped in there and started putting it out,” Mitchell said. The students continued their attempts to put out the fire before emergency officials arrived at the scene around 2 p.m. Wednesday. Fire department personnel were able to quickly get the

Council raises mill rate, but not taxes By Jayne Foster Staff Reporter

Battleford town council will be raising the mill rate, but they aren’t really raising taxes, they say — at least not for those who take advantage of the hefty early pay tax discounts in place. That’s the picture after Monday’s final budget meeting in which council members agreed to implement a two mill increase and to increase the base tax by $55. They will probably make it official at the next regular council meeting May 20. The mill rate increase will bring the rate up to 12.5 (not including the education tax levy) and the base tax up to $675.

After deciding last year to add an additional 10 per cent to the existing tax discounts, by taking advantage of a seldom used provincial government tax tool, Mayor Chris Odishaw said it took some work to come up with a formula which would produce the desired effect. The goal, he said, was for individual taxpayers to see a net discount as long as they take the early pay route. Taking the increase of taxes collected for the school division into account, taxpayers should see a cumulative savings of about $80,000. “When we looked at upping the discount from five to 15 per cent,” said Odishaw, “we couldn’t do it

just on the mill rate because . . . people closer to the base tax were saving big, big numbers and people on the top end were still paying more.” The key was increasing the base rate from $620 to $675. “That $55 increase, combined with the 10 per cent off, comes to $607, so people on the lower end of the assessment scale will actually save more than the higher end.” He pointed out, however, that considering the ability to pay, the people at the higher end should be able to take advantage of the tax discount to get their savings. “We couldn’t come up with an exact formula so that every single person saved ex-

City adjusts mill rate to reflect provincial input By John Cairns Staff Reporter

City council wasted no time in passing bylaws adjusting the mill rate for 2008 downward on Monday night. The move comes in response to the announcement by Municipal Affairs Minister Bill Hutchinson, in late April, of an additional eight per cent increase to municipal revenue sharing, with some $100,000 of additional revenue sharing money coming to the city of North Battleford. In response, the city incor-

porated the changes into its city budget to lower the mill rates from what was previously announced. The changes will see the uniform mill rate for the city of North Battleford dropping from 21.28 to 21.00. One bylaw passed established the revised mill rate factors: agricultural - 2.892; residential and condominium residential - .580; vacant residential land - 1.355; multiunit residential - 1.746; commercial and industrial class - 1.940; elevators .832; and railway rights-ofway and pipelines - 2.674.

A second bylaw established the revised uniform mill rate of 21 mills. The base tax for protective services was set at $523, the recreation capital facilities base tax at $100 and the base tax for residential land and minimum tax with respect to the agriculture class at $175. Council also passed a bylaw to amend a special assessment on Railway Avenue from 106th to 110th Streets. The move was made to adjust costs assessed to both CNR and Imperial Oil Limited.

actly the same amount,” he said. He also said, “I like what past councils did with this base tax, because it at least eliminates some of the extra on the high end, because there is a certain cost benefit to every single resident in Battleford.” Examples presented at the budget meeting saw a 2007

tax bill of $1,075, including education taxes, dropping to about $1,050 for 2008, after a 15 per cent discount. A 2007 tax bill of $7,499 could drop to about $7,332, after the 15 per cent discount. Of those bills, $747.02 and a proposed $2,963, respectively, represent municipal tax dollars, and $328.78 and a proposed $4,368 represent

education taxes. While looking for an effective formula, Odishaw said he found some shocking figures. One was that a low end tax bill last year was made up of 70 per cent municipal taxes and 30 per cent education taxes, a high end bill was made up of only 38 per cent municipal and 62 per cent education tax.

Cloudless AGM for Living Sky School Division Despite the fact the Living Sky School Division is currently waiting on a facility review report and it just increased its mill rate, concerned parents and taxpayers did not turn up in droves to the annual general meeting in Wilkie last Wednesday. Only three parents, who weren’t also staff or board members, turned out, perhaps indicating if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. Two of the parents posed questions — one to do with elementary level track and field and teacher supervision, and one to do with curriculum changes being instituted by the province. No one complained about taxes, no one showed up to ask if any schools were about to be closed, no one demanded accountability. While parents aren’t complaining and high hiring standards make it one of province’s premier places to work, Living Sky, like all of Saskatchewan’s school divisions, is facing some critical issues from outside forces. How education is funded is the big one. The provincial government is looking at changes in the current system, and until that report comes out, school divisions are planning for the future with very little concrete information. That is compounded by the fact property in Saskatchewan is being reassessed, with 2009 the year when new numbers go into effect. Property assessment, in the current provincial grant formula, is the entity which determines whether a school division is a “have” or “have not” entitity. An equalization factor is applied to school divisions based on the property assessment within a division. The higher the assessment, the more the provincial grant is lowered, based on the idea the division will be able to bring in more local taxation money if local assessments are high. Is there any doubt given a recent economic and real estate boom, the property assessment within Living Sky will be going up? Added to the above are changing demographics and rising instructional costs. Could it be that poor turnout to an annual general meeting means ratepayers with complaints about taxes and rising costs know those concerns have to be raised elsewhere? — News-Optimist editorial staff

Quad destruction continues A recent front page photo featured a quadrunner in flames on Finlayson Island. Battleford town council immediately expressed dismay no charges were laid (a situation that has since been rectified by the RCMP). The quad operator wasn’t having a good day, but his vehicle burned in a place it had no business being. Witnesses say the unlucky one wasn’t alone in his illegal foray on to what this community considers an important recreational facility. Knowing the fire truck was coming, the rest of the quad crowd quickly abandoned their luckless comrade. That quads are regularly using the island trails is obvious. The delicate balance between human use and its impact on the local environment is being pushed ever further toward the permanent damage side of the equation. Twin tire tracks can be found everywhere, making nature lovers wonder if this will be the year the delicate lady slippers won’t appear, or if they do, they will quickly fall victim to the odious quad drivers. Odious isn’t too strong a term. By their very nature, quads can traverse all kinds of terrain. That’s why they have no problem circumventing attempts to make the island trails inaccessible to them. The fact these operators thumb their nose at the law, while inflicting permanent

damage on an important community facility, makes their odor an unpleasant one. Add that damage to two recent fires, purposely set, and Finlayson Island is looking more than a little worse for wear this spring. It isn’t only the island that is suffering. Deep ruts are carved down the hillside near the Wandering Spirit site. It’s a favourite quad route from Battleford into the flats and down to the trails quads have carved through the bush along the river. By the way, those quads are ridden through Battleford streets en route to the river. Perhaps, over time, erosion will make the ruts so deep the route will become impassable. Of course, intrepid quad operators will simply carve a new one. The RCMP have promised increased patrols on Finlayson. Hopefully their presence will make a difference. Perhaps opening the bridges to through traffic again would also be a benefit. Increased traffic on the bridges might dampen the boldness of quad operators. As for the casual attitude towards quads buzzing right through town, maybe we can hope fuel prices will get so high the entire destructive pastime will fade into history. Yeah, right! — Becky Doig, Editor

Time to mail the wedding invitations After nearly five years of covering North Battleford city hall, I’ve come to this conclusion: Battleford and North Battleford need to amalgamate. Enough of this foolishness already. Now, I just said a dirty word. While many people will give a wink and a nod about the need for the Battlefords to amalgamate, no one is actually willing to do it. It’s like bringing up the whole sovereignty issue in Quebec – it’s something that shouldn’t be discussed in polite company. One constant complaint I’ve heard is the high level of taxation in North Battleford. The current mayor of Battle-

From The Top of The Pile By Brian Zinchuk ford, Chris Odishaw, campaigned on a promise not to raise taxes, basically for the same reason. Taxes are high enough. A couple decades of stagnation will do that to you. Both municipalities are now in a growth mode, increasing their taxation assessment with new residential and some new commercial projects. However, it has been a struggle to actually keep taxation down. This is why the time is now to make amalgamation happen. If you want to reduce taxation to encourage growth, let’s take a look at expenses. Both municipalities have tried hard to pare their expenditures. Battleford likely is going to cut its funding of the local golf course. (Guess what, it’s on the wrong side of the river.) Although many whispered it to me on the sly, few have actively said paying for two complete administrations, to town/city halls in a community of 17,000 is ridiculous. You need the worker bees to plow the snow and cut the grass, but do you really need two sets of senior managers? Two city halls? On the topic of snow – Battleford residents are proud of the fact their streets are cleaned in short order after a major snowfall. North Battleford struggles sometimes for weeks to catch up. When Battleford is done plowing, usually in a day or two, they park the grader. If the municipalities were alagamated, that grader would keep going until all the streets are done. The biggest initiative in a generation – the recreational multiplex – has been simmering on the back burner for years. One of the big hang-ups is the lack of a formal dollar commitment from Battleford. I distinctly remember most of the council of Battleford running on a platform supporting the multiplex. So where are the bucks? Oh right, we can’t raise taxes. I forgot. If this were one municipality, they could have had the thing built by now. Yorkton did. Lloydminster did. Prince Albert did. Instead, the constant delays have resulted in all the $7 million that was finally squeezed out of the province simply covering the cost of inflation – and likely not all of it, either.

Instead, Battleford is pursuing the idea of renovating its opera house – the upstairs of town hall. It has been defunct for a couple generations – probably for a reason. When the community is looking to build a multiplex with a real performing arts centre, what is the point of a stage and chairs on what is basically a gym floor. Oh, it has horse hair under it. Big deal. I just spent the last weekend taking pictures of several hundred performers at a dance festival in Saskatoon. It was held as St. Joseph’s High School, with a real performing arts centre and stadium seating. The acoustics were great and everyone had a great view. This festival was packed for three days, and raised $23,000 for cancer research. Does anyone really think such things are going to happen in an old opera house, or does it take a new performing arts centre? Festivals like that, substantially bigger than the current one held Battlefords, could happen here in a proper facility . But they would never be held in the opera house. Battleford should renovate the upstairs of its town hall, alright. Make it into the new city hall. Add on to it, if need be. If it takes putting city hall on the south side of the river

to make amalgamation happen, so be it. Put the multiplex in North Battleford, and city hall in Battleford. Each side wins in the end. But instead, North Battleford is completing renovations on its expansion of city hall. This is just another case of the two municipalities operating at cross purposes. You may have noted I have used the term “two municipalities,” as opposed to “two communities.” That’s because the second term is incorrect. This is one community, and it’s time some people get off their high horse and realize it. The next municipal election, we need people on both sides of the river to run on the platform of amalgamation. If that doesn’t happen, there’s one other way to force it. Carefully timed petitions signed by enough electors of each municipality can force a binding plebiscite. If the plebiscite passes on both sides of the river, then councils will have no choice but to amalgamate. Let’s get it done. — Brian Zinchuk is a reporter with Pipeline News.

Sask. Party taking rural voters for granted? From a less honest, less likable politician, it was the kind of comment that might have created outrage. Even coming from the affable Melville-Saltcoats MLA and Minister of Agriculture Bob Bjornerud, it caused a few eyebrows to rise. When asked about his insistence during his days as Saskatchewan Party opposition agriculture critic on the need for drought assistance for the southwest, reporters at the legislature were taken aback by Bjornerud's extremely candid response: "In opposition, I could say just about anything I wanted and I did on a lot of occasions for 12 years," Bjornerud frankly admitted to reporters. In fairness, we expect honesty from politicians, so perhaps we should temper our criticism when we hear a truly honest admission like that from Saskatchewan's agriculture minister. It's also worth noting the very next day Bjornerud announced a $6-million plan to help rural municipalities struggling with dry wells and dugouts — a program that should help nearly 50 rural municipalities in the southwest. While not exactly a solution, it is one more thing than what was done under the NDP administration. As honest as Bjornerud was being, there's also something mildly unnerving about the cavalier manner in which he seemed willing to shrug off one of the many, many implied commitments his Sask. Party Opposition made to rural Saskatchewan by suggesting he had qualms about saying "just about anything I wanted" while in Opposition. Despite its billion-dollar-plus surplus, rural voters have expressed concern over everything from a lack of sufficient property tax relief in the budget to an inadequate

strategy to prevent rural schools from closing to the surprising number of stories we're starting to hear about cuts to rural health care facilities. Moreover, there’s been a tonne of local issues as well. For example, the same day that Bjornerud made his

The Provincial Scene By Murray Mandryk comments on the drought in the southwest, Justice Minister Don Morgan offered up a dilly on the closure of Court of Queen's Bench services at the Humboldt courthouse. In opposition, cutting back in local court services was a big issue in the rural-dominated Sask. Party caucus. In one particularly dramatic display, former WeyburnBig Muddy MLA Brenda Bakken ripped the cover off the Weyburn telephone book — a cover that pictured the courthouse in that city. The Sask. Party kicked up as big a fuss in 2000 over the NDP government's justification for ending Queen's Bench services in Humboldt even though only four trials were held in that city in that year. In fact, so much fuss was made over the NDP's lack of consultation on the proposed closure, the government reversed its

decision. Well, with hardly a word mentioned, Morgan determined that QB services were no longer needed in Humboldt because (get this) only four trials were conducted in the city last year. When asked why he didn't consult on the matter, Morgan responded his government saw no reason because "we didn't anticipate getting a favourable response." Why would you expect a favourable response? Should rural voters suddenly accept your wisdom of closing court services when, as Opposition, you fought to keep them open under nearly identical circumstances? Moreover, is there any compelling reason in today's economy for such cutbacks to rural services? The latter is a particularly interesting question in light of a recent Canada West Foundation survey. One of the more interesting questions in the 4,000 sample — a thousand people from each Western province — was on the question of whether "governments should protect rural economies" or "governments should not intervene in rural economies." Even though 61.4 per cent of Westerners in an early question felt the economy should be left to the free market, an overwhelming and consistent 79 per cent said rural economies need protection. Is there any good reason for the Sask. Party to abandon its commitment to rural Saskatchewan? Or are rural votes simply being taken for granted? — Murray Mandryk of the Leader Post is a veteran observer of the Saskatchewan political scene.

The collaborative team hoped teacher-librarians would gain understanding of the potential of the social web within their profession, both as a tool supporting a community of professional learners and as a tool for students to use to become more information literate. Participants in Meet the Stars: Books & Web 2.0 indicated the goals of the collaborative team had been met. The modules were accessible to anyone online, engendered a passion for

reading, highlighted the potential range of emerging technologies and provided professional development that reflected the goals of a 21st century school library program. Walter and DesRoches have created a resource that exemplifies the far-reaching and positive effects of collaborative work, says the Canadian Association for School Libraries, and are to be congratulated for their excellent contribution to professionalism within school libraries.

Battleford town council has come to an agreement with the Missionary Oblates of St. Mary’s Province which will allow the town first right of refusal to purchase the Oblates’ property should it ever be put up for sale. The agreement was requested by the town, based on the historic connection of the town to Government

Ridge, and will be good for 50 years. Mayor Chris Odishaw thanked the Oblates for agreeing, saying it will give town residents a certain confidence that they do have a choice in the future of the area. The bylaw authorizing the agreement was passed by Battleford Town Council Monday evening at their regular meeting.

RM close to approving subdivision By John Cairns Staff Reporter

A proposal is on the table to develop a quarter section of land south of Battleford. A proposal has been launched to subdivide the land, the southwest quarter section 13-43-17-W3M, into 10 residential lots.

Project will put 10 more lots on the market The proposal is currently before the RM of Battle River. The owners are private developers Ryan Marshall Sidorsky of Calgary and Lionel Lee Leask. RM administrator Betty Johnson said no decision on

approval has been made by the RM. “We’re working on revisions now,” she said. It is expected that once the revisions of the bylaw are done to allow for the proposal, it would then go to

council for approval. “Just a matter of process and time,” Johnson said. The interest in building new lots outside of Battleford is just one of many proposals in the works to meet the demand for new housing in the

Battlefords area. There are new lots being offered including a development in West Battleford and in the Fairview Heights area of North Battleford. As well, there is interest in making new rental accommodation space available in

the area. The provincial Affordable Housing Task Force met with civic leaders in North Battleford on May 1 to discuss ways to provide more “entry-level” rental accommodations in the city.

College athletes return for last season with Bandits Sarah played her first game with the Bandits without a team practice and fit right into the roster as she pitched, caught and played third base in the game against Edam. Along with Heinemann, Brittany Fedler returns for her last season of midget fastball. Fedler was a pitcher at Dawson Community College and will be returning to North Battleford next week to start with the team. The next game for the midgets bandits will be tonight when they host the Edam Midgets at the flats.

The Battlefords and District Ladies Fastball League started its season Monday night. To the delight of the Battlefords Midget Bandits two players will be returning from college teams. Sarah Heinemann returns from Jamestown College, after her first season with the team. Heinemann had 31 hits in 32 games as the team’s third baseman. Her bat will be a welcomed asset to the team as she had a run of 14 games with a hit in 16 games during her season with Jamestown during a span from April 8 to 27. With a batting average of .403 she lead the team and was ranked 28th among division I schools in slugging percentage.

End of Leafs floor mat era With it being playoff time and only four teams remaining for the coveted prize, how do any other teams get their franchises in the headlines? Well, you use your interim general manager to fire your coach like the Toronto Maple Leafs did. No offence to Paul Maurice, who is one of the classiest coaches around the league, but something had to change.

ice. I have been a Leafs fan my entire life. The first sweater I wore to play hockey was a blue and white one with number 17 on the back for Wendel Clark. When I get cut, I bleed blue, and,over the past three seasons, like the thousands of other loyal Leaf fans, I have lost a lot of blood. I still haven’t jumped off the bandwagon, however. I drive my Blazer with

Cey What? By Trent Cey I am not sure if that is what Leaf Nation wanted to see, but it is the start of a long process. The blame for the team missing the playoffs the last three seasons can’t all be put on Maurice. He didn’t have a real healthy team to coach for a long stretch during the season and he also hasn’t had the most talented crop to work with. Players have a big season in the final year of their contract then go invisible for the next three years until that situation comes up again. Bryan McCabe did it, Darcy Tucker did it and Jason Blake, who also was dealing with leukemia, didn’t live up to expectations on the

Leafs dice hanging in the window, Leafs floor mats and a Leafs licence plate. The past few years I take my time washing the vehicle and let the mud pile up to partially hide the Leafs logos. When people joke about the Leafs past seasons, my only response is, “they are rebuilding, for 41 years.” You look at the franchise and the opportunities it has had since the last cup win in 1967 and find it hard to understand the drought. It starts from the top and trickles down to the players, and now the franchise recognizes changes need to be made. The firing of Maurice, and former general manager John

Ferguson Jr. this season, shows this franchise realizes there is a problem and, since the lockout, they have had no idea how to deal with a salary cap and right the sinking ship. A new general manager with some fresh ideas and an understanding of how to get players for a fair price needs to be on top of this hockey monster. Getting Brain Burke as the GM would have been the biggest move around Toronto since bringing Mats Sundin over from Quebec in 1994. Burke knows what type of players it takes to win and he knows how to get the players he wants. Unfortunately he isn’t available to the Leafs this season and that means they have to find someone else, or at least fill the gap until Burke is ready to go to Toronto. The Leafs planned to meet Dave Nonis Tuesday to start the process of bringing in a new GM, who, in turn would start the process of hiring a new coach. One positive thing to come out of the season came last week when Maurice showed more class when addressing the media than any other coach has after a firing. Maurice had a tough time dealing with the fact his team couldn’t live up to the expectation of the Toronto market and now is searching through the classifieds to find a new job in the NHL. The Leafs have been the floor mat of the league, similar to the ones laying in my vehicle, but soon enough it will be time to scrape the mud off and get ready to let them shine.

Bringing home the hardware By Trent Cey Sports Reporter

In her second year of cadets, Meghan Sandbeck has had a national experience, after her trip to B.C. Sandbeck competed as a junior in the National Cadet Marksmanship Championship. Sandbeck brought home a gold and silver medal in the Overall Composite categories and a silver in the team match, where all the team

shooters lay down and shoot at the same time and the score is tallied and added against the other provinces. “The best part was meeting everyone and making so many new friends,” said Sandbeck, who is 13 years old and will be able to compete in the junior category for two more years. Sandbeck’s total was 1,130 out of a possible 1,200 target points. Sandbeck was the second highest Saskatchewan junior

and finished in 13th place. There were 120 air, army and sea cadets on hand for the championship so Sandbeck is very happy with her results and hopes to get a chance to go again next year. The 2009 National Cadet Markmanship Championship will be held in P.E.I. “It would be awesome to go to P.E.I. next year since I have friends there now,” said Sandbeck.

Campaign 911

Report impaired driving: MADD MADD Canada and police urge the public to call 911 and help take impaired drivers off the roads. Local members of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD Canada) want Canadians to know that we can all make a difference in keeping roads safe and in reducing impaired driving crashes. MADD Battlefords and Area joins the national organization in calling on everyone to call 911 to report suspected impaired drivers. In advance of the Victoria Day holiday weekend, MADD Canada has launched its 2008 Campaign 911, a public awareness appeal to encourage and empower the Canadian public to call 911 and report suspected impaired drivers. The organization is working in co-operation with the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, Canadian Police Association and Canadian Association of Police Boards, as well as police and community leaders from across the country. “Calling 911 is an effective way Canadians can help the police in getting impaired drivers off the road before any harm is done,” says Margaret Miller, MADD Canada’s national president. “We urge Canadians to take the important step of making that call. By removing more impaired drivers from the road, we will see reductions in impaired driving crashes, deaths and injuries. “We hope more Canadians will know what to do the next time they see an impaired driver on the road.” Miller adds, “In this past year, we have seen many incidents where impaired drivers have been apprehended by police as a result of a concerned citizen’s call and, in these cases, thankfully, a crash had been avoided and nobody was hurt.” More than 100 local MADD Canada Chapters across the country will be part of the Campaign 911 effort, erecting signs, bus shelter posters and billboards, and spreading the message at public events and with public service announcements. MADD Canada’s national president mentions that the organization worked closely with the police on the safety issues surrounding this campaign. Miller says, “The safety of

motorists is a key consideration, please pull over to use your cell phone and do not try to apprehend suspected impaired drivers yourself. Please keep your safety in mind when making the 911 call.” The public can learn more about Campaign 911 on the MADD Canada website: www.madd.ca.

Committee calls for community input In September, Battlefords United Way hosted a Community Conversation. More than 120 citizens of the Battlefords participated in this conversation and talked about their vision for the future of their community. Community members volunteered to organize the data collected during the conversation. These members include: Ed Lee, Gary and Dawn Lund, Kathy Byl, Allana Tucker, Emily Hardy,

Cameron Duncan, Carla Bernier, Rhonda Seidle and Treena Rathwell. The committee says it is important they do not make recommendations on behalf of the community. The committee is hosting “The Community Change Café” to discuss what citizens want to change in the community. The committee says no one should be frightened to attend; the evening will be set up just like a café, a place to share ideas and brainstorm

about possibilities for action. Community Change Café will be on May 21 at the Don Ross Centre gymnasium. Supper will be provided at 5 p.m. followed with the conversation until 9 p.m. Register by calling the Battlefords United Way office at 4451717 or e-mail Treena at rathwell@northbattleford. unitedway.ca by May 20. Participants do not have to have attended the first conversation in order to participate in the café.

By Charles Webb I sing of lofty snow-peaks, that greet me every day, And long and rugged canyons, that start me on my way. From mirror-lakes of azure, from soaring eagles bald, Impatient winding river, the “Battle” I am called. I sing of flowery hillsides, kissed by the rays of sun, A thousand springs of water, that make my river run. Where wild the lordly big-horn, and grizzly bear is king, I flow towards the prairie, where larks are on the wing.

I sing of mighty war chiefs, who camped along my shore, Of Blackfoot and Apache, who’ll powwow nevermore. Where once the throbbing tom-toms, told who had won the fight, And many the teepee campfire, winked far into the night, I sing of Coureur-de-bois, of massacres and fame, Of battles fought along my banks, from whence has come my name. Of greed and lust and cruelty, of friends and happy days, And how my past has haunted me, in countless many ways. I sing of how my waters, grow deeper in my trench, And how my trees are changing, each side along my bench. From massive pine and cedar, from douglas fir, and soon, To cottonwood and maple, silver birch and saskatoon. I sing of friends I cherish, who drink my waters clear, The muskrat and the beaver, the porcupine, the deer. And as I flow the raindrops, the sun, the snow, the hail, For company the chickadees, the pheasant and the quail. I sing of fish deep in my pools, who bask, all set to strike, The pickerel, the goldeye, the lusty, sulking pike. Of sunsets red and orange, and skies at break of day, Of northern lights that speak their piece, then flash and fade away. I sing of grain so golden, the finest in the land, And sheep that graze where poplars, like watchful shepherds stand. The veeing flight of wild geese, across the prairie sky, The calling of a killdeer, upon my sand close by. I sing of farmers, ranchers, and those who trap for fur, Fishermen who seek my fish, with rod and line, and lure. And how upon my shady banks, love, hand-in-hand, has strolled, And of the secrets I have heard, beneath the moon of gold. I sing at last of freedom, what it means that I be free, Which makes me leave my friends behind, and head out to the sea. I have a secret love affair, which drives me on and on, To seek, to find, and then embrace, the wild “Sask-atche-wan”. — Poet and collector Elsie Pernala submitted this poem for publication. She said it was printed in the News-Optimist in 1971

of the year. For seven years he was musical director and played the part of Don Messer in memory of Don Messer’s Jubilee, a tribute show which has toured across the country. He also has several records to his credit.

I sing of rippling waters, where valleys are my ‘cage’, And shy the antelope that feed, ‘mid cactus and the sage. Through ghosts of roaming buffalo, where now are herds of cattle, I hear the deadly diamond-back, give out its warning rattle. Stages once were ambushed, and settlers once had homed. I ramble on with memories, reminders of the past. Of law men and of bad men, the first unto the last.

Sunday morning, Wes’s wife called the winning numbers line. She thought the ticket matched four of the six numbers.

National president addresses federal superannuates By Jayne Foster Staff Reporter

Saskatchewan’s 22nd annual regional conference of the Federal Superannuates National Association (FSNA) was hosted by the Northwest Branch earlier this week in North Battleford. Representing and advocating for superannuates and spouses from the Public Service of Canada, the Canadian Forces and the RCMP, the FSNA is in its 45th year. Its president, retired from Public Works Canada and a former Canadian Forces member, was the keynote speaker at the conference, making their hosting of the event very memorable, said Northwest Branch president Evelyn McKay. The conference also saw McKay presenting treasurer Gil Bellavance with this year’s Merit Award, presented annually to a member of the hosting branch. Bellavance, 2007 Citizen of the Year for the Battlefords, also acted as MC for Monday’s agenda.

Gil Bellavance, recipient of this year’s FSNA Award of Merit for the Northwest, Dennis Jackson, national FSNA president, Evelyn McKay, president of the Northwest branch, and Bill Taylor, regional director, were all at the Federal Superannuates National Association Saskatchewan 22nd annual regional conference May 4 and 5 in North Battleford. Photo by Jayne Foster Approximately 80 delegates were in attendance, with representation from across the province. Addressing the delegates, national president Dennis Jackson said there are gov-

ernance changes coming this summer which will allow the group to focus on issues much faster than in the past. In addition, he said, there will be a move to more grassroots democracy with changes in

delegate voting. Jackson, who was elected in 2004 on a platform of change, said new work plans and strategies will be giving direction and focus to FSNA advocacy goals.

“We’ve operated for 44 years as a board that was focused on operations and administration,” he said, “ and not . . . on the most important job that we are charged to do and that is to advocate

on the many issues that we have identified as faults, inconsistencies and needs with respect to our pensions and benefits.” Increased interaction with government and its officials over the last 15 years, said Jackson, has led to the group being looked upon favourably as an advocate for federal pensioners. Jackson also updated delegates on the Bill C-78 court case — the siphoning off of surplus from various superannuation accounts by the federal government in 1999. “We and our fellow plaintiffs lost the court case by a ruling from the Supreme Court of Ontario last fall,” he said. “The judgment was completely favourable to the government side.” However, he said, they are engaging an experienced appellate lawyer to review the judges’ findings and determine if there is a case for appeal. “We will not know this until the fall as the judgment is huge and will take many months to review.”

Retirees can’t take long term care for granted By Jayne Foster Staff Reporter

With Canadians living longer, fewer family members to help out and government resources dwindling, addressing the health needs of retirees, especially the need for long term care, has

become a priority for the Federal Superannuated National Association (FSNA). At the May 4 and 5 regional conference hosted by the Northwest Branch in North Battleford, delegates learned more about an insurance program FSNA has established for members faced

with a future which might include long term care. Guest speaker Sylvie Laframboise of Ottawa, a service consultant with Johnson Inc, the FSNA’s group insurance provider, was brought in to explain what long term care means and the financial difficulties

don’t cover the personal or supervisory care which the vast majority require. There are limits and guidelines under provincial plans, she added. In Saskatchewan, income is also considered and residents may not have a choice where they receive care. Without insurance, the cost of care in the home can range from $64 to $911 per month, she said, and facility care ranges from $911 to $1,727 per month, based on income.

leaving flyers to advertise their weekend bottle drive. Residents were generous with the drive, leaving bags of cans and bottles on the curb on Saturday morning. When they finished picking up bottles all over town they headed to Delfrari Park to look for garbage and donned bright orange t-shirts. The shirts, part of partnership between the Girl Guides of Canada and Tim Hortons, are imprinted with “Community Clean Up Team.” Tim

Hortons also donated bottled water for the girls. The group made up of Sparks, Brownies, Guides, Trex, Senior Branches, lead-

ers and parents shared lunch together and then spent the afternoon raking up leaves on the Maidstone Museum grounds.

To donate to the bottle drive or purchase Girl Guide cookies please call Kathy Utri 893-2799 or Bev Caplin 893-2414.

Praising Him with joyful music A character in one of Mark Twain’s books describes a classic as “a book which people praise and don’t read.” Perhaps, for some, the Bible is like that! And in a slightly different way it is true of God Himself. Many praise Him with flippant words, or ritual songs, who neither know Him nor love Him. They are like the ones Jesus describes who “honour Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.” (Matt. 15:8) The Lord is deserving of our praise, but, unless it is sincere and heartfelt, it is a hypocrisy unworthy of Him. Some form of the word “praise” is found over 250 times in our English Bibles. It often translates a word that means to boast in the Lord. That is a primary duty and delight of the saints of God. As David puts it, “The Lord is great and greatly to be praised,” (I Chron. 16:25) “Therefore by Him [Christ] let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.” (Heb. 13:13) One who did that is hymn writer Frances Jane (“Fanny”) Crosby (18201915). Creating songs of praise for the people of God was the occupation of most

of her adult life. Over the years she wrote well over 8,500 of them. Though blind almost from birth, she led an amazingly active life. Sometimes well-meaning friends would sympathize with her handicap, but she invariably rebuked them. Fanny once said, “It seemed intended by the blessed providence of God that I should be blind all my life, and I thank him for the dispensation. If per-

have sung hymns to the praise of God if I had been distracted by the beautiful and interesting things about me.” On another occasion she exclaimed, “My friends! I am shut out of the world, and shut in with my Lord!” Though she undoubtedly had a remarkable poetic gift, it was that intimacy with God that accounts for the joy and passion in many of Fanny’s songs. An example of this can be seen (and felt) in a hymn published in 1869. She called it “Praise, Give Thanks.” But we now know it by the first four words. It begins, “Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer! / Sing, O earth, His wonderful love proclaim! / Hail Him! Hail Him! Highest archangels in glory; / Strength and honour give to His holy name! / Like a shepherd Jesus will guard His children; / In His arms He carries them all day long:

/ Praise Him! Praise Him! Tell of His excellent greatness; / Praise Him! Praise Him! Ever in joyful song!” This and succeeding stanzas are loaded with biblical allusions, showing the author’s outpouring of praise and worship was not mere emotionalism. It was firmly rooted in the truth. All the earth is called upon to sound forth God’s praises in Psalm 96:1. The attribution of strength and honour to His name is reflected in the praise of Revelation 5:12. And the shepherd care of the Lord is described in Isaiah 40:11. Fanny’s second stanza directs our attention to the cross with, “Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus our blessed Redeemer! / For our

sins He suffered and bled and died.” That too is just what the Bible declares: “Christ died for our sins” (I Cor. 15:3). In the final stanza, the author turns our gaze to the throne of heaven. “Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus our blessed Redeemer! / Heavenly portals loud with hosannas ring! / Jesus, Saviour, reigneth forever and ever; “Crown Him! Crown Him! Prophet and Priest and King! / Christ is coming, over the world victorious; / Power and glory unto the Lord belong: Praise Him! Praise Him! Tell of His excellent greatness; / Praise Him! Praise Him! Ever in joyful song!” That song is surely a vehicle for heartfelt praise.

Turning cartwheels at gymnastics workshop By Danica Lorer Freelance Reporter

MAIDSTONE — Ratushniak Elementary School Gym in Maidstone looked like a training ground for circus performers last week as they hosted a gymnastics workshop for all of the school’s students. The Maidstone School Community Council provided funding for the workshop presented by Heikki Miller of Paradise Hill. Heikki is part of the Miller Perfoming Arts Troupe and has been involved in gymnastics for 15 years. He has been the local gymnastics coach for a couple of years and was assisted last week by his sisters Aila and Sylvia. The gymnasium was filled with equipment owned by the school as well as equipment

borrowed for Lashburn and Paradise Hill. Over the course of the week long workshop children from kindergarten to Grade 4 had two sessions of classes and Grade 5 and 6 students spent three sessions learning to fall, tumble, swing, balance, jump, do cartwheels and stand on their heads. The teachers were impressed with the coach’s ability to control the crowd and engage the children in learning the new skills. The lessons were well organized and the students were enthusiastic about the learning opportunity. “Even the kids who groaned about the prospect of doing rolls and using spring boards were doing them and were proud of their progress over the week,” said Jean MacPherson, Grade 5

teacher. Miller was pleased with the outcome of the week. He has done one-day workshops in schools before, but this was the first week long workshop he has led. He said he was impressed to see the students’ progress over the five days. “It was a good crowd for trying and for not comparing and giving up,” said Miller at the end of the week. “They were awesome, some got a lot better at cartwheels and dive rolls,” he said about the students. He is planning to coach the local gymnastics club again in the fall. Last year there were 37 students in the club and over the week, as students got to try more activities, many more expressed interest in taking up the sport.

Although some field work is being done, we have not yet heard the busy hum of machinery. Wet fields, cooler temperatures and the fact the soil has not warmed up seem to be reasons why spring work is not yet a general activity on the farm. This week I heard a mourning dove. Their mournful coo is heard often in the evenings. They seem to enjoy nesting in this type of countryside when they arrive from their winter home in the southern United States.

The mourning dove is much like a pigeon in appearance but has a pointed tail fringed with white feathers. A memorial service will be held at St. Paul’s Church, Forest Bank at 2:30 p.m.

Mothers honoured a variety of ways By Helena Pike Correspondent

Last week we were saddened by the death of a well known resident of the Waseca community, Norman Lumgair, who passed way in a Saskatoon hospital May 7 at the age of 62 years. Norm moved to Waseca with his family in the late 1970s and they have been an integral part of the Waseca community ever since. Norman was originally a native of Manitoba, having

been born in Deloraine. After his marriage to Arlee Dolittle in 1968, he worked in various places and at many jobs. They made their home in Saskatoon, Boissevain, Man. and Maidstone before settling in Waseca in the late 1970s. Norm will be missed, not only by his family, but by all who knew him. He was everyone’s friend, always meeting people with a smile and an interesting or funny remark. He was the ultimate family man, and always en-

BALJENNIE terested people attending. The hall’s addition makes room for more people and

there was still a full house. It ran for two evenings and Sunday afternoon, with all tickets sold out. A big thank you goes out to the Speers Recreation Board and the United Church for such a wonderful, memorable evening. Keep up the wonderful work. Visiting with Stanley and Dorothy Mills were Ivan and Deb Towiss of Perdue. Stanley and Dorothy Mills

were recent visitors with Grant and Kay Robertson of Bjelde Creek. We all thought spring was really here to stay, but Mother Nature had a few hidden ideas up her sleeve. As we all know, once the crows arrive we always get a good snow storm. We were lucky the winter snow had melted, leaving room for a storm blast., The storm put a stop to

any field work and school buses did not run for two days. The mail man had to delay rural mail delivery. Traffic was delayed on highways and many other roads. Highways were closed in areas for a few hours until the snowplows and graders could move about. Hard packed wet snow left many areas slippery. The only safe mode of travel was by 4x4 and they were also having a struggle to get through the deep snow. The storm moved out fast and the snow has melted. Now we need a dry spell. Spring farm work is well behind average. Farmers are getting anxious to get going. A little field work had just started before the storm. Spring seeding will be delayed a week to 10 days at least. The storm played havoc with the cattlemen. Many baby calves were lost due to illness and chills. Cattle are still being fed at feed yards and growth of grass in the fields and pastures is slow. We need warn sunny days to

get things growing. The storm left little summer birds bewildered, with all their food under the snow. I kept filling up my bird feeders and it was a very busy site for a few days. The geese and ducks had to dig through the deep snow for feed and sit close to the water holes waiting for them to melt. The white-tailed and mule deer also came out in herds to feed. There seems to be a large number of deer in our local area. The winter blast did not put a stop to the pesty gophers. They are popping up all over the place, and there seems to be lots of them. Due to the storm Kramer Auction had to cancel a spring annual auction sale at the auction yard. Held a week later, it did bring out a huge crowd of interested buyers and lookers. The parking area was full to over-flowing. Many other auction sales have taken place in the past month and a half. More are scheduled throughout the summer months.

vote of appreciation for all she did in organizing this event. Volunteers have been busy cleaning up and changing the campground facilities over the past little while. There have been some new campsites excavated to match the growing demand on this facility. For the last couple of years the demands have kept it bulging at the seams with people on waiting lists, thus the demand for adding the

available space. They have also moved the wood enclosure to facilitate the change to selling wood rather than having it supplied free. This was necessitated by the high cost to the park over previous years. As a person who spent many hours camped there, I fully understand the need for security on wood supplies since I personally observed a few people load up their vehicles with wood as they left the park so that

they could ensure a free supply as they moved on to campsites or homes. I reported these infractions to the park as I saw them. It is a shame how some people will take advantage of any situation like this. Another sure sign spring may have finally arrived is that the Lions car sank at 6:52 a.m. on May 8. The winner of the lottery was Art LaRiviere. The Meota Golf Course is

01 OBITUARY

CHERWONIAK – It is with deep regret that the family of Donald Cherwoniak announces his sudden passing on May 1, 2008 in Saskatoon at the age of 68 years. The following is part of the eulogy that Donald’s daughter, Stacey, read at the funeral. Dad was born November 4, 1939. He always said that he survived the dirty 30’s and how tuff it was. He was one of 6 children born to Iowen and Nick Cherwoniak; a sister, Beryl, and four brothers Norman, Herb, Gordon and Woody. Dad met Mom in 1964 and they married March 11, 1967. Mom was working at the Hospital in North Battleford and Dad farming at Medstead at the time. Mom looked after Grandma in the hospital and when she went home she told Dad that she met the nicest lady, the rest is history. They were married 41 years this past March. Mom and Dad were very happily married; he was a devoted and loving husband. Even when we said goodbye when Dad went into surgery I could see the love and adoration in his eyes and smile when he looked at Mom. Dad started out his young life farming with his dad and brothers, he drove cream truck as a young man and as most of you remember he was also in the cat business for a short time. He spent 12 years working on the grader for the RM of Medstead and later he was also a RM councilor for 6 years. He farmed for many years and truly did love the land and it showed through the many crops that he grew. He took pride in knowing that farmers feed the world and he contributed to that. He spent many days at the farm with Glen and me tending to the Limo cows which he loved and admired. Dad had a wonderful witty sense of humour. He was noted for his one liners and quiet gentle manner, a proud honest man of his word, you knew exactly where you stood with him. He was not the type of man to show his affection but you knew if he was teasing you things were good. Though he never said it out loud I knew how proud he was of his family just by the way he looked at us and his actions. He was a very special man to all of us and we will miss him so very much. Donald leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife of 41 years, Helen of Medstead, SK; his children Stacey (Glen) Long and their children Tyler and Taneal of Medstead, SK; Kerry (Elaine) Dehker and their children Shaun (Anita) and daughter Donna, and Kyra of Kelowna, BC; his sister Beryl Jones of Rabbit Lake, SK; his brother William “Woody” (Gloria) Cherwoniak of Medstead, SK; his sister in-law Yvette Nicholas of Medstead, SK as well as nieces,

Music Ministry was provided by Charles Day and Soloist Bob MacKay. Shared Memories by Chris Pollard It is written, Dad, that you born July 23, 1932. Some days ago, in a hospital bed, you struggled with the desire to live and even a stronger desire to go home. On the night of April 27, 2008 at 11:35 p.m. the gates of heaven opened and God called you to him. The stone at the head of your resting place will read: Victor Youst July 23, 1932 – April 27, 2008 Chiseled in stone, these dates will bear witness to the fact that you were here, that you lived and that you departed. The dash in between these dates is what is important. The dash represents all your life here on earth. The dash signifies your growing years, your marriage, your wife, your children, your grandchildren, your great-grandchild, your family and your friends. The dash represents your dreams, hopes and accomplishments as well as your defeats, sorrows and regrets. Everyone here would surely have a story to tell about your dash for you were a significant man to us all. In your dash, we find you were born at home on the farm to John and Pearl Youst. You were their fourth child. You have three sisters; Albina, Angelia and Diane. You have two brothers, Edward and Albert, who died as an infant child. Angelia passed away in 1986 and Albina in 2006. We find that your parents farmed five miles east of Mayfair and that you received your education at Oral School and that you would eventually marry Dorothy Pethick. Grandma still says it was dancing that brought you two together. You were a fantastic dancer, a talent that your grandchildren inherited from you. In fact, the fox trot was your

specialty. From your dash, we find that to your marriage union, you were blessed with six children: Chris, Linda, Johnny, Frances, Ritchie and Louella who filled your life with pride and joy. We also find that farming was certainly your nitch in life and you had no intentions of ever leaving it. You made that clear to all of us when you stayed home until the last minute when you had no choice but to leave for the hospital. We also find that you drove the school bus for a total of 36 years. I remember that during that time, even in minus 40 degree temperatures, your bus still hit the road when others chose not to run. That is something to be very proud of, Dad. You loved the farm and every season that went with it. Seeding and harvesting was something that you took seriously and insisted on getting the job done. As you lay on your back in ICU at the hospital two weeks ago, you said that you had to get home to get the seed in the ground. Years ago, you enjoyed cattle and oh, how I remember hauling those bales and how you insisted the stacks had to be perfectly straight. You made sure you examined them every time! In years when your health was good, company loved to visit and you equally enjoyed having them. Your generosity was outstanding and they never left without plenty of food and drink. You enjoyed a good game of Kaiser and the fun that went with it. You were a great cook and made one of the best Borscht and Kapoosnak in the country. As the years went by, we all grew up, married and had children of our own. We could see how you enjoyed each and every one of the grandchildren. You never came to visit any one of us without bringing them a treat. Tickling them under the chin and trapping them between your feet were two of your very own specialties. You beamed with love and pride as you watched these babies develop into the lives of young children, teenagers and adults. I was your first born and when I saw all of us gathered at the door of the Intensive Care Unit, I realized how many family births took place since I came along. You were a part of each one of those births, graduations, weddings, accomplishments, and achievements as well as the many hardships and sorrows in the daily lives of all of us. You laughed, you loved, you joked, you teased, you disciplined; but above all, you taught. You were one of the best teachers any child could ever have had. You taught us that there are rights and wrongs and yes’s and no’s to adhere to. You also stressed the importance of having an education and that it was something no one could ever take away from you. You always said, “Don’t do as I do, do as I say”. You were not afraid to call a spade a spade, you stood for what you believed, you made up your own mind and you were never afraid to voice it. You said what needed to be said, whether we liked it or not. You had many qualities to be admired. Your dash reminds us that your 75 years on this earth were all too short and how you still wanted to return to the farm. Throughout these years, I learned the strong will of a man, the value of discipline, the importance of education and the respect for your wisdom. I read somewhere that a person’s immortality is measured not by what a person leaves behind but rather by the people he has touched. This statement is very true. As a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, friend and neighbor you have touched us all. So, go on now Dad, rest comfortably and know that you will never be forgotten. While we mourn our loss, others are rejoicing to meet you behind the veil. Life is eternal and love is immortal, and death is only a horizon, and a horizon is nothing more than the limit of our sight. You were a tough man with a pioneer, outdoor spirit and a strong love for God and nature. You will be missed. We love you, Dad, and there’ll

always be a special place for you in all our hearts. In Closing, I just want to recite the following poem about those who have passed away: I am standing on the sea shore, A ship sails in the morning breeze and starts for the ocean. She is an object of beauty and I stand watching her Till at last she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says: “She is gone.” Gone! Where? Gone from my sight that is all. She is just as large in the masts, hull and spars as she was when I saw her And just as able to bear her load of living freight to its destination. The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, Not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says, “She is gone,” There are others who are watching her coming, and other voices take up a glad shout: “There she comes.” See you later, Dad. Bye for now. God Bless You. Memorial Donations are requested to be sent to The Lung Association, Canadian Diabetes Association and to the Donor’s Choice. Interment took place at Woodlawn Memorial Gardens, North Battleford, SK. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Battlefords Funeral Service, North Battleford, SK. (306)446-4200 Cards of Thanks Victor Youst 1932-2008 We, the family of Victor Youst, cannot begin to express our thanks to everyone who have helped our family during this very difficult time. The tremendous response to Victor’s death was a wonderful tribute to him. The many acts of kindness, cards, visitors, phone calls, prayers, food, floral arrangements, and donations were very much appreciated more than you can ever imagine. A sincere thank you to Dr. W. G.

Thank you Reverend Father Gerard Legaspi for visiting Victor in the hospital as well as your consoling and comforting sermon, Charles Day for the music ministry and soloist Bob MacKay for your beautiful singing. Sincere thanks to the Notre Dame CWL ladies for preparing and serving the beautiful lunch. A big heartfelt thanks to Battlefords Funeral Service. Your care and compassion will always be remembered. Remember him with a smile today He was not one for tears, Reflect instead on memories of all The happy years. Recall to mind the way he spoke And all the things he said, His leadership, his strength, his determination Remember these instead. Dorothy Youst & Family

Checking in with A.J. Cook Weekday Early Morning By Jay Bobbin © Zap2it

Despite the tone of “Criminal Minds,” A.J. Cook insists it’s not as grim as it seems. “People are always shocked when they come to the set, because as soon as we hear ‘Cut!’ we’re joking around,” says the actress who plays FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit member Jennifer “JJ” Jareau on the CBS crime-drama series seen Wednesdays. “We’re still making jokes even after they say ‘Action!’ It’s pretty ridiculous.” “Criminal Minds” handles cases in a procedural manner, but more of the regular characters’ stories are being revealed. “I’m not going to lie, it’s so much more fun to play,” Cook says. “The show has really evolved since season one, and I think the audience is more invested when you care more about the characters. It’s great for us as actors, because we want to sink our teeth into something good. You can’t wait to get your hands on the next script.” Now expecting her first child, Cook muses, “I’m not too sure what I got myself into, doing this in front of the world on television.” The pregnancy is being shared with her series alter ego, since JJ also is becoming

a mom-to-be. “Everyone is dying to know who the baby’s daddy is going to be,” Cook says. During the writers strike, Cook was in Florida filming “Misconceptions,” a movie in which she plays ... a pregnant woman. “I blame the writers,” she says. “You shouldn’t have given me that time off, guys.” Even with some cast changes along the way (goodbye, Mandy Patinkin and Lola Glaudini; hello, Joe Mantegna and Paget Brewster), Cook believes “Criminal Minds” has stayed true to its concept. “I think CBS trusts us to do our thing,” she says. “It’s been great.” Birthplace: Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. Birth date: July 22, 1978 Current residence: Los Angeles. Marital status: Husband’s name is Nathan; currently expecting their first child. Other television credits: “Tru Calling,” “Vanished” (TV movie), “Dead Like Me,” “Bloodsuckers,”“Higher Ground,” “First Wave,” “PSI Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal,” “Blue Moon,” “Elvis Meets Nixon,”“Goosebumps,” “In His Father’s Shoes” Movie credits: “Misconceptions” (forthcoming), “Night Skies,” “I’m Reed Fish,” “Final Destination 2,” “The House Next Door,” “Out Cold,” “Wishmaster 3: Beyond the Gates of Hell,” “Ripper,” “The Spiral Staircase,” “The Virgin Suicides,” “Laserhawk.”

The marital matters of Food Network’s Deen

By Jay Bobbin © Zap2it : Paula Deen of Food Network was first married to Jimmy Deen. Is he the sausage tycoon? —Mary Vellani, Columbus, Ohio : The sausage king and actor (‘‘Diamonds Are Forever”) and singer (‘‘Big Bad John”) you’re thinking of is Jimmy Dean Paula Deen — note the spelling of his last name, a definite clue that it isn’t the same person. The other Jimmy was Paula’s husband from 1965 to 1989, and their two sons are restaurateurs along with Paula in Savannah, Ga. She has been married to second husband Michael since 2004. : I saw NBC’s lineup for 2008-09, and I did not see ‘‘Medium” on it. Is it not renewed for the fall? —Jane Mitchell, Clearwater, Fla. : It is not, but it is renewed for the winter. The Patricia Arquette drama (which is produced by Kelsey Grammer) will not be a fall starter, as also was the case this current television season, but it’s scheduled to return on Sundays after the network’s coverage of NFL football concludes. : In the ‘‘Mission: Impossible” series, what was the order of appearance of two of the actors? I can’t figure out who came first, Peter Graves or Steven Hill. —Mary Claus, Lakewood, Colo.

: Hill played original Impossible Missions A Force leader Dan Briggs when the classic espionage series began in 1966 on CBS. He stayed only for that first season — later going on to a long run as District Attorney Adam Schiff on ‘‘Law & Order” — and Peter Graves was brought in for the rest of the show’s original run, until 1973, as Jim Phelps. Graves also returned in an updated version of ‘‘Mission” that ABC aired from 1988 to 1990. : On several episodes of ‘‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” I have seen the name Mike Doyle listed in the acting credits. What character does he play? —Shirley Hill, Oklahoma City : Featured in quite a few episodes of the NBC series — nearly 50 of them since 2002 — he portrays Ryan O’Halloran, one of the police bureau’s forensics experts. Previously a recurring guest star on such shows as ‘‘Oz” and ‘‘Sex and the City,” Doyle also appeared in last year’s Hilary Swank movie ‘‘P.S. I Love You,” which has just been released on DVD. : What is the name of the movie in which a man is carried aloft in a lawn chair with balloons tied to it? My husband watched it on television; he thought it might be an Australian film. —Judy Smith, Denver : It is. It’s the 2003 comedy ‘‘Danny Deckchair,” in which Rhys Ifans (‘‘Notting Hill,” ‘‘Elizabeth: The Golden Age”) had the title role as the man who sat while he flew — or vice versa. : On ‘‘The Addams Family,” the actor who played Pugsley had the last name Weatherwax. Is he any relation to Rudd Weatherwax, the trainer of Lassie? —David Magliocca, Niagara Falls, N.Y. : In fact, the actor Ken Weatherwax — who apparently hasn’t acted again since reuniting with many of his former co-stars for a 1977 ‘‘Halloween With the New Addams Family” TV movie — is the nephew of the late animal trainer, who also put canines through their paces for the 1950s movies ‘‘Old Yeller” and ‘‘Hondo.”

On the morning of May 7 the HHS Junior Royal Players presented Thank-you For Flushing My Head In The Toilet and Other Rarely Used Expressions. This is a comic yet serious look at the sub-

ject of bullying. These young people portrayed victims of bullying and did an excellent job. It made (I hope) the young people in the audience stop and think about what it is like to be in that victim’s position. No doubt some of them have been and could identify with the play. Congratulations to these young people who may make a difference is someone’s life — Mitchell Detillieux, Coral Falls, Shanae Blaquiere, Sheena Denison, Mikayla Detillieux, Bailey Delainey,

The crew consisted of Gilmour McDaid, lights and sound, and Taniesha Yarrow. Ms. Patti Formanek directed these youngsters. The Senior Royal Players took their production to a drama festival in early April. They performed in front of an audience of approximately 350 people. Their play was well received by the audience and adjudicator. They brought home a medal for runner-up best technical production. A technical theatre certificate was awarded to Darryl L’Heureux for his leadership in stage management and he also received the spirit of drama award for the school. RaeAnne Nedelec received an acting award of merit. The spring book fair has once again been a success with the total raised being $1,409.92. This enables librarian, Anne Olson, to purchase new material for the library. Winning the draw for the evening book fairs was Jarrett Wahobin in Grade 1. Jarrett won $25 worth of books for himself as well as $25 worth of books for his teacher, Pam Hellofs. These will be added to her classroom library. Congratulations Jarrett and Pam. Visiting the evening book fairs was Curious George. He would like to thank Daniel deMontarnal and Nicole Delainey for keeping him out of trouble as well as having a steady supply of bananas on hand. Mrs. Olson would also like to thank Aja Cooper, Christa Blaquiere and Cherelle Cadrain for volunteering to run the book fair at noon hour. This gave Mrs. Olson a break and these girls did an excellent job. Congratulations to Treverr and Carol Poole, who won the trip of the month draw for April and to Bob and Elaine Cole on their win of the $100. The next draw will be at the end of May at the credit union. For golf enthusiasts, the Mervin Golf Club will be Continued on Page 39

Please attend and be sure your child is safe and your child restraint seat is installed properly. Congratulations to Daniel and Bonnie Sehn of Edam, on the birth of their first child. Abigail Lenette Carolyn Stewart Sehn arrived May 2. Also welcoming Abigail are grandparents Don and Lenette Stewart and Ross and Loralee McHattie of Vawn and great-grandparents Audrey Mallard of St. Walburg, Fred Mallard of Saskatoon and Alan McHattie of British Columbia. As of Tuesday, May 6, the Payton Ferry was up and running. This was the first official launch for Greg Disiewich as the new captain. Good luck Greg in your new position as captain. Condolences go out to Shannon and Louise Hood and family on the recent passing of Louise’s father, Jack Stuart of Mervin. Condolences also go out to Louise’s mother, Mary and brothers and sisters, Ronald, George, Linda, John, Mary, Myrna and Marla, and their families. On April 29, Arnold Thom celebrated his 94th birthday with his family. In attendance were four generations to wish him well. The Meota Embroidery Guild made and donated a quilt for the palliative care lounge at Lady Minto Health Care Centre. The lounge is used by family members who need to stay/rest when caring for a loved one. The lounge is also used by the day program clients who wish to lie down in the afternoon. Recently, when they delivered the quilt, the group also brought cake and strawberries to serve for afternoon coffee and visited with the residents. Lynette LaClare, activities director, gave the group a tour of the facility. This group previously made four lap quilts which are always in the activity room. I believe that is it for this week. Hope all the fieldwork goes well. The 4-H clubs will be getting ready for their big day that is coming up. 4-H weekend brings to a close the feeding and training of calves for the show and sale. Good luck to all the members.
