Lo ca l AUT H O RS: Writers tell us what makes their book worth reading


Beneath That Star has a message for everyone Saray is a young Jewish girl who longs to be a shepherd like her three older brothers. But convention of the day requires that she focus her efforts on gaining skills to run a household, not work out in the fields. When God speaks to Saray in a dream to watch out for, and follow, the bright star in the sky, she is both excited and hesitant. When will the star appear? How will she make the journey on her own? And what will she find beneath that star? Beneath That Star is my new children’s picture book for ages five to nine, with a timeless message for everyone. The inspiration for the book was a song I wrote for my Christmas

CD Red & White, which in turn was inspired by my reflections on what life must have been like around the time of Jesus’s birth. I wondered: What Sally Meadows if the shepherds of the Nativity story weren’t the only ones who saw and followed the brilliant star heralding the arrival of the Messiah? Further, how would it have felt to be a witness to this historic event? As I fleshed out the fictional character of Saray, I envisioned her as a free spirit, longing for a different

kind of life. I also saw her as having a physical impairment, symbolizing the imperfections we all have. In many ways, Saray represents each one of us who makes a decision to believe, and her journey, like ours, can be fraught with uncertainties and difficulties. Like Saray, what we find beneath that star is immeasurably more than we could ever ask or imagine. Included in the book are questions that can be used to enrich and expand upon the story.

I had to run longer than other people. I had to out-work everybody. – Don Narcisse

Playing the game between the lines and in real life By HenryTye Glazebrook Don Narcisse was 21 years old before he got to meet a professional athlete. The man who visited Texas Southern University, which Narcisse attended in Houston, was James Murphy, then a wide receiver for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The interaction ended up changing the course of Narcisse’s career. “The guy started talking like, ‘I caught a hundred-and-some passes in the CFL. I led the league,’ ” Narcisse said. “I’m looking at him like, ‘Man, he’s not that tall. I could be just like him.’ ” Today, Narcisse is a Canadian football legend who spent his entire 13-season career playing wide receiver for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. In 2010, he launched the Don Narcisse All-Star Event, an annual charity youth football camp that brings out current and former players to train kids in the sport, teach them core values and give them some of that inspiration Narcisse got in university at a young age. “All I’m trying to do is get kids off the sideline and get them into the game. That game could be anything. It’s not about football. I tell all the parents it’s not about football. It’s about the kids having a great attitude, being around other good players and getting the chance to meet their mentors,” Narcisse said. Though he moved to his home state of Texas after retiring in 1999, his 2010 return to be inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame inspired Narcisse to come back to Saskatchewan. A standing ovation from a legion of 3,200 Green and White fans as he accepted the award made it an easy decision for his family to make the move, but Narcisse wanted to do more for the province that accepted him as one of its own. “One thing I wanted to do was to give back to this community, and the best way to do that was through the kids.” In previous years, All-Star Events have helped around 150 young athletes in Saskatoon and Moose Jaw take part in professional-level drills with the players they aspire to be. In Regina, the charity’s home city and host of its yearly gala celebration, Narcisse says that number can reach as high as 400. For 2016, Narcisse has plans to expand the football camp to another three Saskatchewan cities, including Estevan, Prince Albert and Moose Jaw, as well as beyond the province’s borders to Kelowna, B.C.

I try to give the kids the real deal. If this is something you want to do, I’m not going to sugar coat it. I’m gonna do exactly what I would have been coached or told to do as a youngster, too. — Belton Johnson

Former Roughrider Belton Johnson, right, has been taking part in every Don Narcisse All-Star Event since its start and has no plans to stop. Bridges photo by Michelle Berg

••• Belton Johnson, who played offensive tackle for the Roughriders from 2006-09, has taken part in every football camp for the Don Narcisse AllStar Event and plans to continue that tradition as its scope widens in the coming years. Growing up in Mississippi, Johnson lived and died for football. He and his brother watched games on TV every Sunday and collected their favourite players’ trading cards. He remembers his mother taking the two

boys to their first pro football game, the New York Jets and the Houston Oilers (now the Tennessee Titans). They didn’t have the best seats and Johnson didn’t get to meet any of the players face-to-face, but the experience was so thrilling that years later he started taking part in All-Star Events to try to inspire others in the same way. “I do it because I know the kids — especially Rider fans — the kids see the players as something they want to be when they grow up,” Johnson said.

“If they can get excited to see me up close and personal, who knows? Maybe 10 years, 15 years down the road they’ll be telling the story of, ‘I remember Belton. I was at the Don Narcisse football camp and he pushed me.’” In helping coach, Johnson says he has always tried to push the young athletes to the peak of their abilities. “I try to give the kids the real deal. If this is something you want to do, I’m not going to sugar coat it. I’m gonna do exactly what I would have been coached or told to do as a youngster,

too. I try to give the real-life coaching to them. I’m the one screaming and yelling,” he said. “I probably scared a bunch of the kids when I first started off, but those groups of kids continue to come back each and every year and they’ve gotten better and better.” Johnson makes a point of picking out those returning kids and elevating them to youth leaders at the camps, having them explain plays and shout out instructions for newcomers. He hopes the extra responsibility will mould them the same way football did him.

Have you gone on a bra shopping trip, only to be frustrated, walking away empty handed? Jeunique International, founded in 1959, manufactures health bras based on the engineering of the Golden Gate Bridge (balanced load suspension). Shirley McInnes (International Executive Director), a Certified Bra Fitter, is coming to Saskatoon for a 3 day Bra Clinic. Bras on the market with frills and lace may look nice, but they are not doing their job. (85% OF WOMEN ARE WEARING THE WRONG BRA!) A women needs support from beneath the breast tissue. The Tab and the Jeunique/Leunique Bras both fit small to full figure, sports, maternity and mastectomy - 200 sizes and 3 styles to choose from 30A - 46KK; no bounce, no wires to gouge or bruises or impeded lymphatic drainage and circulation. Does not ride up in the back or fall off the shoulders and promotes better posture. Switching to a custom fitted bra is like giving up a floppy pair of slippers for an orthotic shoe. Once women adjust to the uplift and snugness (a couple of weeks) you become a life-long client. Doctors, massage therapists, chiropractors often refer their patients to us.

All I’m trying to do is get kids off the sideline and get them into the game. That game could be anything. It’s not about football. — Narcisse

“Football’s done so much for me towards just becoming a man. It’s taught me hard work, leadership, discipline. I think kids need it,” Johnson said. “If I was back home in Mississippi, it was a way for us to stay off the streets. It gave you something to do — something to occupy your time instead of sitting in front of the TV playing a video game. Just get out there and work your butt off.” ••• Joe Gunnis, Narcisse’s agent and co-ordinator of Moose Jaw’s All-Star Event, said every athlete who joins in takes a different approach with the kids. “Some of them are loud and vocal and really pump the kids up. Some are subtle in the way they do things. But they always bring that message that anything’s possible if you work hard for your dreams,” he said. Gunnis looked back on one event attended by a young girl diagnosed with cancer. Though her illness kept her from taking part, she joyously cheered along her siblings from the sidelines. When Narcisse saw her, Gunnis says he went above and beyond to make the day a highlight for the girl as well. “He just took control of that situation and made sure she had everything, made sure she got everything and made sure she got some pictures and the autographs she wanted. To me, that’s as charitable as it gets.” “Don’s got a big heart, and I think he was proud to be able to do that, and honoured. He’s very humble when it comes to that stuff.” Gunnis has developed a close relationship with Narcisse since they met in 2010. He echoed the player’s sentiments that the All-Star Event is a way to introduce kids to professional athletes, and added that it helps humanize those players and make their successes feel attainable. “No matter how big or small or fast anyone is or what your circumstance is, there’s an opportunity to be the best you can be and achieve a high level. Don’s not the biggest fella in the world — he’s not six-foot-seven — but he’s had a successful career,” Gunnis said. Continued on Page 11

••• A lot of people would not have pegged Narcisse as a future pro athlete growing up. An early diagnosis of asthma could have set him back, but instead it taught him to push harder. Narcisse never told anyone about his condition — he didn’t want to use his asthma as an excuse — but instead developed a game day routine to work around it: showing up two hours early and doing a strenuous run to “open up my lungs.” “I had to run longer than other people. I had to out-work everybody,” Narcisse said. “When you can’t breathe, nothing else matters but that next breath. As much as I wanted to breathe is as much as I wanted to be on that football field.” His drive paid off, and in 1987

he was signed by the Roughriders. He recalls roughly 400 other athletes competing for four coveted positions with the team, and credits his mother, who gave him $40 to cover his travel to the training camp, with making the lifechanging opportunity possible. “I got a chance. I’m still living on those forty dollars, and I’m helping other kids out.” Though his mother died days before he was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, Narcisse continues to build on the values she taught him. “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. You don’t have to be the smartest, you don’t have to be the fastest, you don’t have to be the biggest. But if you’re out there and you work hard, you can out-beat anybody that you’re going against. I live that every day.”

Nuts About Nature

At Beaver Creek Conservation Area

Hi kids! My name's Chip, and I live at Beaver Creek Conservation Area. Visit my backyard with your family and friends and enjoy some time away from the city.


Dear Chip, Why do some animals have hair while others have fur? Jake It looks like winter is around the corner again, so this is the time when my mammal friends grow a thick coat of fur to survive the cold winter months ahead. Believe it or not, hair and fur are actually the same thing!. So when your parents ask you to brush your hair in the morning you can tell them that you would rather brush your fur instead. Your hair is a fascinating part of your body and it comes in two types: primary hair and secondary hair. Primary hair is sometimes called guard hair because it guards the skin from things like insects, cold winds and the weather. The primary hair on a beaver is special because it prevents water from touching their skin while swimming, just like a raincoat. Other examples of primary hair are porcupine quills and the hair on your head. Second.-" #.!-/ 01 +#& 0+#&- #.1'/ !, )&-" ,0$+ .1' %*(" .1' !, *,*.22" $0*1' *1'&-1&.+# +#& primary hair. Secondary hair acts as an undercoat, helping to insulate the animal, keeping it warm. Many mammals around Saskatoon have warm underfur, including the sheep that visit Beaver Creek in the summer and the mule deer that visit us in the winter.

Crispy Bread Salad a good starter for fall feast By Renee Kohlman Brussels sprouts can be quite the divisive brassica — either you love ’em or hate ’em. When roasted until their skins blister and burnish, I love them. If they are boiled until they resemble nothing but smelly green mush, I hate them. It’s all about proper cooking and seasoning. It’s the same with mushrooms. Served raw, I won’t go near them, but when roasted they absorb the spices and seasonings you’ve tossed them in, becoming meaty, earthy joys to eat. If you like neither Brussels sprouts or mushrooms I expect you’ve left this page long ago. Oh, but too bad because this salad is a real treat for fall and winter. You may think that salads consisting of bread and vegetables are confined to summer, but you’re wrong. Crispy bread cubes can be tossed with any seasonal vegetables at any time, but in fall and winter, the vegetables are best if roasted. Seriously. Who wants to eat a pallid, tasteless, imposter of a tomato in winter? This recipe for a lovely tapas-style salad comes from The Deerholme Vegetable Cookbook by West Coast chef Bill Jones, who knows his way around a vegetable plot. Author of 12 cookbooks and an expert on growing all the things and foraging all the things, Jones’s latest volume, published by Touchwood Editions, is a diverse collection of vegetables recipes. There are soups and sauces, braises and casseroles, even a section on preserving. Vegetables are smoked and grilled, stuffed and roasted, made into flatbreads and pancakes. Jones even has eight dessert recipes — Phyllo Roll with Parsnip, White Chocolate and Sesame is of particular interest to me. The first 60 pages alone are terribly informative, including a primer on how to best cook and store a variety of vegetables. Jones also dishes on proper cooking essentials, such as knife skills. It’s good stuff to know if you are a neophyte in the kitchen. I rustled up this salad on a weeknight, using Brussels sprouts and oyster mushrooms from the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market, while the crusty bread came from The Night Oven bakery. The veg were tossed in a fragrant spice mix and roasted until soft and blackened in places. The cool thing about the bread cubes are that they get fried in a garlic/butter bath then coated in Parmesan cheese while hot. Brilliant technique there. Everything mingles and marries in a citrus vinaigrette (the orange marmalade scared me a little, but my fears were unfounded — it’s a subtle yet necessary bit of brightness) and becomes a salad full of texture and taste. I shaved more Parmesan on each serving and thought to myself, as I often do, how bacon would only improve such flavours, or even how cooked lentils or chickpeas could provide a protein punch if you were going the full meal deal route. As it were, this is a great starter or side dish for a fall feast or simple supper.

Crispy Bread Salad is combined with roasted Brussels sprouts and oyster mushrooms. Bridges Photo by Renee Kohlman

Crispy Bread Salad with Roasted Mushrooms and Brussels Sprouts >1 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed >½ lb chanterelle (or oyster) mushrooms >2 tbsp olive oil >1 tsp ground cumin >1 tsp ground coriander >1 tsp oregano >1 tsp salt >½ tsp smoked paprika >¼ tsp fresh black pepper >2 tbsp grapeseed oil >2 tbsp butter >1 tbsp minced garlic >4 cups cubed bread (rustic white loaf, baguette etc.) >2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese >1 tbsp orange marmalade >1 lemon, zest and juice

>2 tbsp olive oil >2 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 F. On a rimmed baking sheet, combine the Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, olive oil and spices. Toss to coat and season well with more salt and pepper. Place in oven and roast for about 30-40 minutes until the sprouts are soft and browned, stirring once or twice. You may need to add more olive oil if they seem too dry. Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature. In a saute pan over medium-high heat, place the grapeseed oil, butter and garlic. When sizzling, add the bread cubes and

saute for 3-4 minutes or until they absorb the seasoning and just begin to brown. Watch you don’t burn the garlic. Add the Parmesan cheese and toss quickly to evenly coat the bread cubes. Remove from heat. In a small bowl, combine the marmalade and lemon juice and zest. Whisk to combine. Add the olive oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking until it’s incorporated and smooth. In a mixing bowl, combine the roasted vegetables and bread cubes. Drizzle with half the dressing and toss to mix. Transfer to serving platter or plate and drizzle with remaining dressing. Garnish with parsley and serve at room temperature. Makes 4 servings.

Seeding fall vegetables worth a try By Jackie Bantle If you are one of those vegetable gardeners who is not quite ready to say goodbye to the 2015 growing season, there is one fall project that you may want to try. Besides garlic, fall seeding vegetables is not a common practice on the Prairies but one that is worth trying. Not all vegetables can be seeded in the garden before winter but there are a few vegetable crops that can be fall sown with success. Most vegetable gardeners love to get an early start on the growing season. There is no better way to take advantage of moisture from the spring melt and showers than getting those seeds in the ground before the moisture appears. Because fall seeded vegetable crops will emerge early in spring, crops that will be killed or permanently damaged by spring frosts should be avoided. Soil preparation is just as important before fall planting as it is in the spring. To prepare the seed bed, use a mulching mower to mulch any of this year’s left over disease-free vegetation in the garden patch. If mulching is not an option, remove plant debris and place it in your compost bin. Any diseased plant material should be buried or discarded in the trash. Add well-composted manure or other organic compost to your garden; especially to the area that will be fall seeded. Work this compost into your fall garden area with a rototiller or by turning over the soil with a spade. It is a good idea to work up the entire garden area in the fall: this will bring overwintering soil pests to the soil surface where they will hopefully freeze or desiccate over the winter months. Rake the area to be seeded to provide a level surface. As with any seeding operation, it is important to have good soil to seed contact for maximum, uniform germination. Dry soil is preferred for fall seeding since moisture will encourage seed rot and seed germination in fall. Avoid fall seeding any warm season crop crops like corn, beans, cucumbers, pumpkins or squash. Seeds of warm season crops do not tolerate cold soil conditions. In general, cool season crops tolerate cooler temperatures during germination, growth and storage. Despite their preference for cooler temperatures, not all cool season crops can be successfully fall seeded on the Prairies. Crops that are worth trying to fall seed include: onion, radish, broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi, spinach and kale. A general rule of thumb for fall vegetable seeding is to seed deeper and denser than in spring. Increase all depths and densities by 25-50 per cent. Following are some general guidelines: onion, radish, kohlrabi and spinach — 1 cm deep, 1cm between seeds; broccoli and cabbage — 1cm deep, 15cm between seeds; kale — 1 cm deep, 1.5 cm between seeds. Do not water your rows after fall seeding. While I wouldn’t plan to seed all my kohlrabi or onions in the fall, it is a good way to get a jump on the growing season in spring for some early harvested vegetables. Good luck with your fall planting. I’d write more, but for now, I have some vegetable planting to do before the snow flies. Bantle is a horticulturist living in Saskatoon.

WINE world #

Dr. Booze

Spanish red delivers to all kinds of tastes I was at a Spanish wine tasting last week. Watching the crowd reaction to various styles of wine was more fascinating than the wine. People, ordinary people-in-the-street types, had quite definite variations in taste; and the gradations were much subtler than I expected. At one end are those who like ripe tannic wines; at the other, people want subtle lean reds. In Spain, leaner wines happen to be slightly cheaper. A number of people were somewhere in the middle, seeking some of the riper more obvious fruit flavours but still wanting a dry wine with some tannin behind it. Spain is a great place to hunt for such wines because both winemakers and regions are young (for Spain) and experimental still. Altos de Luzon over-delivers on all of this. This is a wine from a new — a mere 100 years or so old — region southwest of Barcelona. The wine is a big meaty red, a blend of Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo. The first two are hairy-chested wines full of tannin. Tempranillo is more refined, the grape of Rioja. Rioja Alta produces the finest, most elegant versions of the wine; and is high about 350 to 700 metres. Jumilla is also high, around 650 metres, so you can expect it to produce more of same. However all three grapes can cellar for decades, if you want it finer still. A product of the terroir using indigenous wild yeast, Altos is a great glass. The bouquet
