After Alvin’s marriage, Eric continued to farm on his own, however they still did all their harvesting together. Eric loved to tinker with machinery, was an excellent mechanic and was able to fix anything. Hunting and fishing were two of his favourite pastimes.

WAYDE - In loving memory of Lawrence, who went to be with our Lord, November 24, 2015. Life is just a stepping-stone A pause before we make it home A simple place to rest and be, Until we reach our home in eternity.

Our final destination is a place Filled with love, His majesty and grace. We celebrate the life of our loved one Who has gone before us, the race he has won. His journey has now ended, His spirit has ascended Claiming the great reward With Jesus, our Lord. -With Love and Remembrance Lorette, Wayne & family Lorraine, Darcy & family.

Single Malt Scotch and Pork Chef Dez on Cooking

by Gordon Desormeaux I am a scotch drinker. This is something I am quite proud of as I have invested a lot of money and time in sipping, tasting, and savoring many different types of Scottish grain whisky. With the holiday season fast approaching I am certain that I won’t be the only one celebrating the company of loved ones with a glass (or more) of this wonderful oak aged spirit. Years ago, a recipe in my test kitchen was born when I discovered the intensely smoky single malt scotch called Laphroaig (pronounced La-froyg). At the time, the peat smoke in this single malt was too overwhelming for me and my Fatherin-law, but over the years I have acquired a deep fondness for it. Back then however, we had this bottle of Laphroaig and because we didn’t feel up to drinking it, I decided to cook with it. Pork was the ideal choice of meat as beef would be too overpowering. I played with the flavours of the scotch by marrying them up with a combination of chicken stock, fresh lemon juice and the sweetness of honey to balance everything out. A bit of heavy cream added and reduced down makes for a perfect finishing syrupy touch. Chicken would also be fine in this recipe, but because of salmonella bacteria in chicken, please make sure it is cooked to a minimum of 165 degrees Fahrenheit, or 71 degrees Celsius. Now with the fondness of Laphroaig dear to my heart, and my taste buds, this has become my alltime favorite scotch cooking recipe. I highly recommend Laphroaig for this recipe as its intense peat smoke comes shining through in the recipe whereas other milder scotches would be lost. Happy Cooking! If you are interested in joining me in Scotland next summer, please visit Auctions

my website. Pork Medallions in Single Malt Pan Sauce From page 131 of Chef Dez’s new book The Best In Your Kitchen “Makes 4 portions (3 medallions each). Live like the Scots - Scotch is for cooking too!” •1-pound (500g) pork tenderloin(s) •2 tsp canola oil •Salt & pepper •1/2 cup chicken broth •1/4 cup peaty single malt scotch •Juice of 1/2 lemon •1 tbsp liquid honey •1/4 cup whipping cream 1. Cut the tenderloin(s) into 12 equal sized medallions, approximately one half inch to three quarter inch thickness. Toss with the oil and season both sides with salt and pepper. 2. Heat a heavy bottomed pan over medium high heat. 3. When the pan is hot add the medallions and sear them for approximately 2 to 3 minutes on each side. 4. Add the chicken stock to the pan to deglaze (stir briefly to remove the browned bits off the pan into the sauce). 5. Add the Scotch carefully and ignite with a long match or lighter. Flambé until the flames subside. Remove the medallions and set them aside. 6. Add the lemon juice, honey and cream to the pan. Continue to boil until syrupy and desired sauce consistency. Remove from heat, lightly season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve immediately poured over the reserved medallions. Chef Dez is a Chef, Writer, & Host.

The Yorkton Co-operative Association Limited Box 5025 30 Argyle Street Yorkton, SK S3N 3Z4

Phone (306) 783-3601 Fax (306) 786-6090 E-mail

To our Yorkton Co-op members and customers, You may have heard the recent news about the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority awarding a number of liquor permits throughout the province, including Yorkton. Many businesses, both big and small, applied for these opportunities. While some Co-ops were successful, the application from Yorkton Co-op was not. Your Yorkton Co-op is a local business owned by you and operated for you. Because of that, we’re disappointed that we weren’t successful in adding a liquor store to serve you, our members and customers. We are also concerned for Saskatchewan businesses because the liquor stores in the large urban centres in the province went to a national company headquartered outside of the province and two other out-of-province companies. The profits generated by these organizations won’t flow to local and provincial economies. Yorkton Co-op operates in Yorkton and surrounding communities such as Theodore, Ebenezer and Kamsack, has 18,965 members and provides 210 jobs. Yorkton Co-op shares its financial success with its members and in 2016 returned $970,000 in cash to its members. During the past 5 years it has returned $7,617,000 to its members. The Co-op and other businesses based in Saskatchewan weren’t asking for special treatment when it comes to these larger liquor store opportunities. We are suggesting that the selection process should have considered the contribution that local businesses, including retail co-ops, make to our province’s economy and our communities. Keeping dollars in Saskatchewan should matter to us all. If you share our passion and support for local businesses that keep our communities strong, there is something you can do. If you are also concerned with how the profits from privatizing liquor stores are being sent out of our communities and our province, become part of the conversation. Tell your friends. Speak to your neighbors. Share your opinion with local and provincial representatives. Yorkton is committed to local service, local employment, and sharing our success with our communities and members. Let’s work together to ensure that local businesses are given the opportunity to succeed and thrive. Sincerely, Bruce Thurston, General Manager Yorkton Co-operative Association Limited
