I was asked for what I look for in a relationship. Apparently ‘A Way Out’ wasn’t the right answer I don’t know where my PRINCE CHARMING is but I’m already prepared for our first fight because he is super late Quickest way to my heart you ask? Texting in full sentences and using proper grammar and spelling. I’m not joking. Like Dorothy I attract men who are brainless, heartless or cowards. Dating again after divorce? Its like high school except with stretchmarks and debt.

306.463.6555 | 601 11 Avenue East, Ki ndersl ey, SK S0L 1S1 Senior Hockey I was born and raised in Regina and was never exposed to one of the great hockey traditions in Saskatchewan until I played as a 21 year old, that being senior hockey. It seems every town in Saskatchewan big or small has a rink, a bar and a Chinese restaurant . The rink is the place to play games and a chance for the community to gather, meet and cheer on their home town team and talk about life and family, the local bar is the place the game gets reviewed and the next day at coffee row in the restaurant. The rivalry between towns can be intense and many a memory is recalled with fondness in later years. But for a spoiled city kid I was quickly introduced to how amazing senior hockey can be, whether it’s a team competing for an Allan Cup or just a small trophy calling yourself a league champion, the hardware is secondary, it’s the pride you feel for your town and for those packing the stands and cheering you on. My passion for senior hockey on the ice only lasted for 1 season as it took a back seat to my career , but that passion would later carry me into being part of a team behind the scenes. Through my 10 seasons of managing a senior hockey team there was always this sense of home when I walked into a rink, whether it be in St Walburg , Paradise Hill , Kindersley or Lloydminster there you always had those familiar small town hockey fans there for a night to enjoy some great hockey and for the older ones, reminiscing days gone by of teams that wore those jerseys many years ago. I was blessed to be part of a team with a remarkable tradition in the Lloydminster Border Kings. Long before 2 Allan Cup championships , the Kings were like many senior teams packing rinks and giving an opportunity for players to further their hockey careers before playing those beer league late night games. It’s been 5 years since the Border Kings second Allan Cup championship in 2007. Memories as general manager of that team are still fresh in my mind like it was just yesterday , but since then the Kings like many senior teams faced a long list of struggles and those struggles has seen the Kings unable to ice a team for the last 2 seasons . All senior hockey fans in Lloydminster are left with right now are the memories of those great teams . At the same time, on any given Saturday you can head North , South , East or West and find a rink, a hot chocolate and fans cheering on their home town team just like other generations have done.

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.- Aristotle

Let your love be stronger than your hate or anger.

Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend a little than to break. Believe the best rather than the worst. People have a way of living up or down to your opinion of them. Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship. The person you marry is deserving of the courtesies and kindnesses you bestow on your friends. Please hand this down to your children and your children’s children: the more things change the more they are the same. Jane Wells 1886

Once upon a time, a beautiful, independent, self-assured princess happened to meet a frog in a pond. The frog said to the princess, “I once was a handsome prince until an evil witch put a spell on me. One kiss from you and I will turn back into a prince and then we can marry, move into the castle with my mom and you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children and forever feel happy doing so.” That night, while the princess dined on frog legs, she kept laughing and saying, “I don’t THINK so.” Canada’s Farm & Small Business Tax Specialists Are you a farmer or small business owner?

If love is blind why is lingerie so popular?

People ask me “Why are you single? You are attractive, intelligent and creative.” My reply is “I’m overqualified.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Never laugh at your wife’s choices. You were one of them. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “More Marriages might survive if the partners realized that sometimes the better comes after the worse.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “I want to spend the rest of my life trying to get out of debt with you” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Two antennae met on a roof, fell in love and got married. Their wedding ceremony wasn’t fancy. The reception, however, was excellent. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ One day this frog was bored, so he decided to call the psychic hotline. The psychic asked the frog “what do you want to know?” “Tell me something about my love life”, said the frog. “In the very near future you are going to meet a very beautiful young woman”, said the psychic. “Cool, where – at a disco or a party?”, said the frog. “No”, the psychic replied. “Next month in her biology class!”

www.pipelinenews.ca Oil a key factor in Wall’s speech to SUMA By Brian Zinchuk Saskatoon - The impact of the oil sector on the provincial economy and government revenues factored large in a speech made by Premier Brad Wall to delegates of the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association convention in Saskatoon on Feb. 6. This was especially important as he explained how the province is now looking at a $1.2 billion deficit this year, and that, as a result, the municipalities would be getting less money. Wall said, “For nearly three years now, and sometimes I think we’ve lost track of just how long it’s been, for three years, we’ve been battered and bruised and buffeted by a stubbornly long down cycle in commodity prices. It’s been a perfect storm for Saskatchewan. It’s affected oil, significantly affected oil and the energy sector. But also potash, and also uranium, and that storm is still blowing a little bit. We aren’t out of it by any means.” “Government revenues have dropped precipitously in the last number of years. There is no immediate bounce back coming to the higher levels we would hope, on the resource side of the equation. Oil has recovered to some degree. Analysts, though, believe ceiling for that, at least now and for the mid-term, is about $60. That’s the ceiling. Because as the price increases, so will production. Shale oil in the U.S., has been a game-changer, for us.” He wanted to set expectations straight, saying, “I don’t think we should be on, or plan on, or won’t plan on $100 a barrel, $80 a barrel, or $70 a barrel any time soon. That’s the reality. But at least prices of oil are off their historic lows. We can’t say the same for potash. We can’s say the same for uranium. Those prices are still at historic lows, with little expectation that will change.” As a result, municipalities will be getting less money.

Kindersley Awaiting Census Population Results by Moises Canales Towns in the province must have a population of 5,000 or more in order to be incorporated into a city After the nation responded to a wide range of questions back in May of last year, Canadians will finally be able to view the first wave of Census results. Population and dwellings results for the 2016 Census Program will be released today along with additional Census geography products. This will be the second set of data released by Statistics Canada after the agency released more geography statistics back in November of last year. Councilors and administration from the Town of Kindersley will be one of many groups in the community keeping a close eye on the updated statistics for the municipality. The final numbers could indicate whether the town will attempt another application in order to gain city status from the provincial government. Back on May 10th of last year, Kindersley council and town administration submitted a request for city status after they were encouraged by the Government of Saskatchewan to follow the application process. Towns in the province must have a population of 5,000 or more in order to be incorporated into a city, and administration believed their application would be accepted after a lengthy research period of more than two years into the matter. In the end, council received a letter from the Minister of Government Relations in September stating the town’s request had been rejected because they believed Kindersley had not yet reached a population of at least 5,000. Newly-elected Kindersley mayor Rod Perkins has already mentioned he would be interested in re-submitting an application for city status once council has had an opportunity to view the town’s revised population numbers.

At St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Toronto, they have weekly husband’s marriage seminars. At the session, last week, the priest asked Giuseppe, who said he was approaching his 50th wedding anniversary, to take a few minutes and share some insight into how he had managed to stay married to the same woman all these years. Giuseppe replied to the assembled husbands, “Wella, I’va tried to treat her nicea, spenda da money on her, but besta of all is, I tooka her to Italy for the 25th anniversary!” The priest responded, “Giuseppe, you are an amazing inspiration to all the husbands here! Please tell us what you are planning for your wife for your 50th anniversary?” Giuseppe proudly replied, “ I gonna go pick her up.”

Kissing is our greatest invention. On the list of great inventions, it ranks higher than the Thermos bottle and the Airstream trailer; higher, even, than room service. - Tom Robbins

LOVE IS BLIND

Phil, a smart and handsome young man, dressed in the latest fashion, walked into this local pub. He noticed a woman gazing at him without blinking her big eyes. Phil felt flattered so he walked up to the woman and said in his deepest voice, ‘I’ll do anything you wish, beautiful lady, for just $10 but on one condition.’ The woman appeared to be trapped in the moment and asked as if in a trance, ‘What’s your condition?’ Phil answered, ‘Tell me your wish in just three words.’ There was a long pause, the woman opened her purse, counted out the money and handed it to the man along with her address. She then looked deeply into his eyes and whispered, ‘Clean my house.’
