Everyone seems to love fireworks, and many gathered at the Painted Hand Casino Main Stage Saturday evening to enjoy the display which was one of the

final events of the annual Yorkton Exhibition. The fireworks followed stage performances by the Hunters Brothers and the GX94 Star Search Finals.

Greyhound service in Yorkton shuts down By Sean Mott Staff Writer The countdown to bus extinction has begun (in the Prairies, at least). Greyhound Canada will be closing its passenger bus and freight services in Manitoba,

Alberta, and Saskatchewan (British Columbia will maintain a lone Vancouver-toSeattle route). Yorkton’s service will not be spared. The closures will go into effect on Oct. 31. “I was surprised and a little disappointed,” said Mayor Bob

Maloney. Greyhound Canada cited slumping sales as their primary reason for abandoning bus services in the Prairies. “The business model seems to be broken,” Maloney said. Greyhound passenger buses

provided a vital link between rural small towns and bigger cities. They were an affordable alternative to flights. With the closures, hundreds of employees and rural citizens have been left in the lurch. “It’s a loss for the community,” Maloney said. “It’s going to

be difficult.” Maloney is uncertain what business, if any, will be able to fill the hole when Greyhound rolls out of Yorkton. “If Greyhound can’t make it work, I don’t know who can,” he said. “I’m not sure what the future of our terminal will be.”

China massive market for area exports By Calvin Daniels Staff Writer China is a huge market in terms of potential trade exports. That potential has already been realized by a number of Yorkton and area businesses

including Buckle Great Northern Beef Corp., who hosted a visit from Richard Choi, chief representative of the Saskatchewan Trade and Investment Office China, based in Shanghai. For Choi, working in promoting business and

trade in China is a natural. Born in China, but growing up and being educated in Canada, he has worked extensively in the business field including time with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in China, before taking the position

with the Saskatchewan office. Choi said having an office in Shanghai is a good step in opening doors to the massive market of the city, and the country, adding Canadian business has to understand going in it is

a different world there in terms of how one carries out business. “The way they do business over there is very different from how we do business here,” he said, adding he believes the basis for business in China “comes from the

history and culture of the country.” It’s important that Canadian business understand at least some of that history. For example, “China only opened to the world

‘Long cool’ win for Borderline By Calvin Daniels Staff Writer For the second year in a row a Langenburg-based rock band won the Yorkton’s Got Talent finals at the summer fair. This time around the fans voted Borderline the night’s best, with the four-piece group led by lead singer Carlie Geres wowing the group with a rendition of ‘Long Cool Woman’ by the Hollies.

Joining Geres in Borderline are Cody, Kyler and Riley Buchberger. Riley Buchberger, the band’s drummer, was also part of The Firm which won the inaugural Yorkton’s Got Talent in 2017. Between being called up to the Painted Hand Casino Main Stage as winners, and being urged to play a couple of encore songs by fans who stayed in the grandstand area, Geres told Yorkton This Week they had gone with a song they knew well.

“The song’s been on our song list before,” she said, adding they put in a couple of weeks of focused practice leading up to the contest. “… It’s just lots of fun to sing – just a classic.” One thing that didn’t bother Borderline was the crowd, as the band has played in front of some large audiences before including the 2017 Rhythm ‘n Ribs in Yorkton, an event they are already booked to return to later this month (July 27-29). But there was still a sense of excite-

ment as Borderline took to the stage as the final act of the night. “(We were) fired right up and ready to go,” said Cody Buchberger. Geres, 18 – the Buchbergers are 14, 15, and 16 – graduated high school in June, but she says that won’t affect her performing with Borderline. “I’m taking nursing in Yorkton,” she said, adding being close to home will keep the band together.

Kiddies Day

Staff Photos by Devin Wilger

The Yorkton Exhibition Summer Fair is fun for all ages, but Thursday is the most fun for the youngest folks. That’s when the fair holds its Kiddies Day, which kicks off with the Kiddies Day Parade, featuring floats put together by the kids of Yorkton.

Summer free fishing weekend ahead Saskatchewan’s annual summer free fishing weekend is just around the corner. On July 14 and 15, residents and visitors to the province are welcome to fish in any of Saskatchewan’s public waters open to sport fishing without purchasing a fishing licence. “Saskatchewan offers some of the best fresh-

water fishing in the world,” Environment Minister Dustin Duncan said. “Free fishing weekend is a great opportunity for families and visitors to make summer memories at one of our province’s many lakes.” For those new to fishing or interested in learning more on fishing necessities, local fishing experts Jason and Jeff Matity will be leading

free Learn to Fish sessions during free fishing weekend. Participants will learn about fish identification, how to pack a tackle box, cleaning/filleting and more. These free lake-side sessions run at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. in Douglas and Moose Mountain provincial parks on July 14, and Buffalo Pound and Echo Valley provincial parks on July 15. More informa-

tion can be found at www. tourismsaskatchewan. com/places-to-go/provincial-parks/summer-fun. Anyone planning to take part in free fishing weekend should note that all other fishing regulations, including possession limits, gear restrictions and size limits on some lakes and rivers, remain in effect. Free fishing weekend does not apply in national parks

and anyone planning on taking fish out of the province must purchase a licence.

The first free fishing weekend in Saskatchewan was held in the summer of 1989

to encourage participation in sport fishing and increase public awareness about the value and diversity of angling opportunities in the province. In 2015, the province held the first winter free fishing weekend. Annually, approximately 250,000 people sport fish in Saskatchewan, including more than 50,000 outof-province anglers.

sheer scale of the market is enticing. Choi pointed just to the city of Shanghai with its population of 32 million. “That’s only two million short of the total

population of Canada,” he noted. Choi added there is a significant middle class in Shanghai and that is the important sector they want to access. People with a growing income are willing to spend money for quality imported products such as Buckle Great Northern Beef, or honey from Wendell Estate Honey at MacNutt, or flax oil from TA Foods here in the city. The market is there. “It’s very big and very

complicated,” he said, adding the opportunities in Shanghai do exist “as long as you know what

you’re doing.” That is where the trade office and Canada’s reputation can help.

More information about fishing in Saskatchewan can be found in the 2018 Anglers’ Guide, at

in 1978,” reminded Choi. “China has only 40 years (experience in trading).” That limited timeframe in international dealings compared to a country

such as Canada is significant, he said. “They’ve had to learn a lot of things from the west.” While there are hurdles to be cleared to trade into China, the

In fact, when asked, the four musicians envision a long-term collaboration, nodding agreement to the idea of still being together five years from now. This summer, they have plans to start taking their music in a more personal direction. While having gigs arranged for the aforementioned Rhythm ‘n Ribs as well as Spy Hill, Grayson and Birtle, MB, they want to write some songs. Drummer Riley Buchberger admitted they have a lot of work ahead to get barely percolating ideas to the full song stage, but it is part

of the plan. “It’s a project this summer,” echoed Geres. Taking second place was a quintet of dancers from ExtravaDance in Yorkton. The senior hip hop group performed a number entitled “Big Winner (Mash Up).”

Members of the group were Grace Bartel, Trinity Schneider, Hannah Seville, Kendil Veer, and Sarah Willson. The third place finisher among the 10-acts was eight-year-old magician Makayla Winters of Yorkton.

Teaching raptors while entertaining By Calvin Daniels Staff Writer Canadian Raptor Conservancy is one of the largest captive breeding projects in the world. The Port Diver, ON. based organization has more than 200 captivebred birds at its facility, and regularly breeds over 15 different species each year. Many of the species are endangered species and some of their offspring are sent back into the wild through organized release projects around the world. To raise awareness about raptors in general, and the conservancy in particular they send out travelling shows to introduce to the birds. For Matt Morgan, a wildlife educator and raptor trainer, it’s a dream job. “I do this all year long. I travel across Canada,” he told Yorkton This Week as his travels brought him to the Yorkton Exhibition for daily shows highlighting raptors. Morgan, who grew up in Toronto, said when he was a youngster his family went to bird shows at the Toronto Zoo, and his interest in birds such as hawks and falcons was set. When old enough he became a licenced falconer after “working through an apprenticeship program.” The apprenticeship is important for its handson experience because as Morgan noted while you can read a lot about falconry “books are just books”. The first bird Morgan

Matt Morgan of the Canadian Raptor Conservancy with a bald eagle at the Yorkton Exhibition, owned was a Harris Hawk, a species native to further south into the United States. “It’s a fairly standard beginner bird,” he explained. “The Harris Hawk (Parabuteo unicinctus) is a medium-large bird of prey which breeds from the southwestern USA south to Chile and central Argentina,” details the conservancy website at http://www.canadian- “It is the only member of the genus Parabuteo. The name is derived from the Greek para, meaning beside or near, and the Latin buteo, referring to a kind of hawk; uni meaning once; and cinctus meaning girdled, referring to the white band at the base of the tail. John James Audubon gave this bird its English name in honor of his ornithological companion, financial

supporter, and friend Edward Harris. “Individuals range in length from 46 to 76 cm and generally have a wingspan of 1.1m. The average weight for males is about 710g, while the female average is 1020g. This is a sexual dimorphism of about 40%, with the female being larger than the male. They have dark brown plumage with chestnut shoulders, wing linings, and thighs,

white on the base a tip of the tail, long, yellow legs and a yellow beak. “The bird lives in sparse woodland and semi-desert, as well as marshes (with some trees) in some parts of its range, including mangrove swamps. Harris’s Hawks are permanent residents and do not migrate.” As his interest in falconry grew Morgan saw a conservancy show and mentioned he would be interested in working with them. As it happened a full-time job opened up and they called him to apply, and he got the job and has been with them for nearly five years. Morgan said the conservancy is involved in a variety of areas of conservation, including the facility caring for sick and injured birds of prey that have come from wild populations. If possible the birds are returned to health and released back into the wild, and if release is not possible they remain cared for. Wild birds are not used in shows however. All of the birds used for demonstrations are captive-bred, he said. The facility also works on a variety of conservation programs related to birds of prey. “This includes “Operation Falco Slovakia” which is a project to help restore the endangered Saker Falcon to the Republic of Slovakia. Canadian Raptor Conservancy bred Saker Falcons for release and was used as a

consultant to help establish a breeding facility in Slovakia,” detailed the website. The Canadian Raptor Conservancy is one of the founding partners of the Ontario Barn Owl Restoration Project. Morgan explained the barn owl population while widespread in Ontario “is on the verge of extinction.” “The Barn Owl (Tyto alba) is the most widely distributed species of owl, and one of the most widespread of all birds. They are found almost anywhere in the world outside polar and desert regions,” detailed the website. “The Barn Owl is a pale, long-winged, longlegged owl with a short square tail. Depending on subspecies, it measures between 25 and 45 cm in overall length, with a wingspan of about 75 to 100 cm. “Its head and upperparts are a mixture of buff and grey (especially on the forehead and back) feathers in most subspecies. All have fine black-and-white speckles… “The Barn Owl builds a nest of sorts, but unlike in typical owls it is just a scrape in any unsorted debris as has assembled in a hollow with narrow entrance. Typical nest sites include tree stumps and cliff crevices, but these owls will readily nest in attics, vacant and ruined buildings, and even wells, chimneys, hunting blinds and similar locations.” Continued on Page A7

Simard tops GX94 Star Search By Calvin Daniels Staff Writer For the second year in-a-row a singer from St. Lazare, MB., has topped the GX94 Talent Search. In 2017 it was Julianna Moore thanks in large part to a great rendition of the challenging ‘Crazy’ made famous by Patsy Cline, who won it all. This time Solange Simard, crediting her rendition of ‘Diane’ from artist Cam, who won the silver buckle, limited edition jacket, and a chance to record a pair of songs. “’Diane’ is very powerful,” said the 16-year-old Simard after her win on the Painted Hand Casino Main Stage at the Yorkton Exhibition Saturday. Simard said the song is rather new on the music scene, but she said it caught the judge’s attention in a preliminary round of the competition, so it was a natural to

come back with it at the finals. Simard then turned to a familiar Creedence Clearwater Revival standard ‘Ever See the Rain’ to round out her two-song set. “It was my first time performing it,” she said, adding working with the band that all finalists had for the show helped. While confident in her performance the win still came as a surprise. “There were a lot of talented singers,” she said, adding when her name was announced she was of course thrilled. “My heart was running when I was announced.” For Simard the GX Star Search came in her first year in the contest, a rarity in the 25-plus years of the competition. However, Simard did have experience to draw upon. The performer is completely bilingual and has performed in front

Perspective Best to understand why teepees are there

Politics Why there are teepees on the lawn across from the legislature in Regina is likely a more important question than why the teepees are still there. After having a least one teepee there for nearly five months now, many are asking: Why police are unwilling to enforce the bylaws prohibiting them? Are the First Nations protestors getting special treatment? With all due respect, these are the wrong questions. If this were a simple matter of bylaw enforcement, it is the Provincial Capital Commission — the provincial body that replaced the old cityprovincial Wascana Centre Authority that used to administer this city park — that has dropped the ball. While the PCC successfully got the the police to remove the original teepee last month, it likely should have requested the campsite be cleared in February when it first when it first went up in response to the Gerald Stanley not guilty verdict. It didn’t — perhaps because the Saskatchewan Party and the PCC recognized the sensitivity of the situation. One might recall the entire province was a bit of a power keg after the not-well-understood verdict in the death of Red Pheasant First Nation resident Colten Boushie. Certainly, Premier Scott Moe deserves much credit for reaching out to Boushie’s family and the First Nation community as a whole to create better understanding. Nevertheless, the protestors still felt a need to be heard, to educate others on their issues including the historic treatment of aboriginal children and maybe even heal a little themselves. The legislative grounds are a place where people sometimes go to be heard by exercising their free speech — whether we necessarily agree with what they have to say or not. This expression comes in the form of protest. And, quite often, the protestors violate park bylaws … or perhaps even other laws. The latter was clearly the case in February 200 when farmers demanding $300 million from the provincial government and a billion dollars, overall, stormed the legislature, chained the front doors and then conducted a nine day-andnight sit in. The Regina police let them be, even though they were obviously conducting a far more serious trespassing offence. It ended when the protest leaders, themselves, asked the police to break it up when things were getting out of control. (There was talk of threats being uttered.) Yes, this current protest camp has been around for much too long. Yes, it has grown in the past couple weeks at the at encouragement of of the Federation of Indigenous Sovereign Nations (FSIN) after the Regina Police removed the initial protestors and got them to temporarily take down the original teepee. One fears that the longer this camp stays, the great chance for resentment … or worse, unpleasant confrontation. The camp leadership should be cognizant of this. But it does seem clear the Regina police have acted wisely so as to avoid confrontation. And while there are those who will rightly argue that some of the protestors demands can’t be met, maybe it would serve us all well to take a moment to listen what they are actually asking. At a meeting with provincial cabinet last week, the protestors laid out a wish list of things they wanted. Some are less feasible, like a moratorium on adoption and any expansion of the foster care system. But others seem rather reasonable. They have asked for: “clear data on the number of children in child care and the duration of their care”, a “review of all permanent wards”, examination of “the use of in-home supervision in-lieu of apprehension”, a “full report on child care”, a cabinet visit to the Red Pheasant First Nation, as promised and a “cost analysis” of children in care with cheaper alternatives in mind. This is why the protest teepees are there. We should at least try to understand that. Murray Mandryk has been covering provincial politics for over 22 years.

International trade opportunities for local business I

t is sometimes difficult to get your head around the idea of a product being made in the local area and sold to someone on the other side of the world. There is a general understanding by most, at least in Saskatchewan, that the crops they see growing in fields as they drive down our highways are exported outside of Canada. But, it is less thought about that products such as jars of honey, bottles of flaxseed oil, or pieces of machinery processed locally find interested markets in other countries. Richard Choi, chief representative of the Saskatchewan Trade and Investment Office China, based in Shanghai, was in Yorkton over the weekend and he brought into focus the connection the local area has in terms of trade with China. One of those businesses is Buckle Great Northern Beef Corp., which hosted Choi on his visit. The Buckle farm was homesteaded in 1885, six miles south of Yorkton. Since the 1940s, they have fattened cattle for both the Canadian and US markets. In 2014 Buckle Great Northern Beef Corp. sent its first container of beef to China. Their beef is now in 25 retail stores in Shanghai. “We were the first company to legally export beef (Canadian) into mainland China,” said Blaine Buckle in a 2015 Yorkton This Week story. The initial shipment was two containers of beef, “the equivalent of about

100-head of fat cattle,” he said. Wendell Estate Honey from MacNutt has also made forays into China. To diversify their sales, Martin Neuhofer said in a 2013 YTW story the company wanted to develop a line of products for the high-end consumer market both domestically and abroad. The business had already undertaken its first run of product, softcreamed-honey presented in jars, with sales in Canada, as well as Japan and China. Neuhofer said then they were looking to generate sales through gift shops, high-end wine stores and similar locations, where it can sell at a significant premium as a hostess gift or as a corporate gift. As an example, a twelve ounce jar of the Wendell Estate Honey retails for some $18 in Montreal and $40 in China, he said. While there are hurdles to be cleared to trade with China, the sheer scale of the market is enticing. Choi pointed just to the city of Shanghai with its population of 32 million, only a couple of million less than all of Canada. A growing middle class has dollars to spend on quality import products. With American president Donald Trump becoming increasingly protectionist in his trade policies the chance for Canadian business, including those local manufacturers, to look further afield certainly seems timely. There are already examples of how it can work.

Roadside facelift Keep your eyes peeled for detours this week. Stage two of the Broadway Street West resurfacing project began on Monday, Jul. 9. The construction will cover the Broadway

Gov’t issues bluegreen algae advisory The Water Security Agency and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health are advising the public to avoid swimming in or drinking water where blue-green algae blooms are occurring. Algae blooms, or heavy concentrations of blue-green algae, commonly occur during calm, hot weather in areas of lakes and reservoirs with shallow, slow moving or still water that has sufficient nutrients. Pet owners and livestock producers are also advised to keep their animals away from such water. Algae blooms often give the water a shimmering, foamy pea soup appearance. They are usually blue-green, bright blue, grey or tan in colour. The recent warm temperatures in the province may result in the quick formation of algal blooms. The blooms typically last up to three weeks and can be pushed around the lake or reservoir by the wind. Swimming in or drinking this algae-contaminated water can cause red skin, sore throat, cramps or diarrhea. In addition, caution should be taken when considering the consumption of fish or shellfish caught in areas of a water body where a bloom exists; in particu-

lar the internal organs of the fish should not be eaten. If you have health

symptoms, please call Healthline 811 or contact your health care provider.

In South Africa, war had broken out between the British army and Dutch settlers called Boers. Canada, being a British colony, answered the demand from Britain and sent volunteers to serve under British command. The town of Yorkton and vicinity was, in 1900, populated in majority with Ontario people of British descent and people from England and Scotland, all very loyal to the Crown. The photo here shows a grand celebration in Yorkton after a 217 day siege — the battle for the town of Mafeking had been won by the British.

Council Meeting Monday, July 16, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. Help Keep Catch Basins Clean! During periods of heavy rain the storm water system can get backed up. Streets are designed to hold water until the underground storm water system is able to take water away. Often catch basins (drains) on streets can become clogged with tree branches, leaves, grass clippings, etc. Residents can help prevent flooding and assist public works staff out by cleaning catch basins on their streets. Clean drains mean water will move faster through the system. Also please remember not to drive down streets holding large amounts of water. Driving creates waves which can lead to flooding of garages and homes on those streets.

RAPTORS Continued from Page A3 Morgan said obviously a prime nesting location are barns, which are increasingly metal clad in Ontario, making them hard to access, The barn owl also suffers because of rat poison. Morgan said when people kill pests, the owls end up eating the poisoned vermin. When dead barn owls are found in Ontario, they always show at least some level of rat poison, he said. Habitat loss is also an issue, with the barn owl preferring grass-

lands, said Morgan, adding some 95 per cent of grasslands in Ontario have been lost in the last 20-30-years. Other projects have seen the Canadian Raptor Conservancy contribute several young peregrine falcons to the Ontario Peregrine Falcon Recovery Team. Morgan said it certainly is not all bad news in regards to raptor populations in Canada. For example, the bald eagle population in Ontario has strengthened to the

point where it is nearly off the endangered species list. In general, Canada does a credible job of protecting the birds, sucg as banning the use of DDT, but that is not the case in all countries. The Swainson’s Hawk, named after William Swainson, a British naturalist, “are declining in some parts of their range due to loss of habitat. Although the use of DDT has been banned in the United States, the Swainson’s Hawk still

encounters pesticide use when it migrates in the winter to Argentina. Known as the locust hawk, the hawks will eat numerous amounts of these insects and in turn ingest a high amount of toxin, which causes thinning of egg shells,”

explains the website. Morgan said educating the public about raptors is a big part of why they take birds on the road. He said many people have heard about raptors, but not everything out there is factual. “Awareness is a fair-

ly big thing … We try to replace the myths with interesting facts about them,” he said. Morgan said if they can educate everyday people, they will “put pressure on people who can make changes” to better protect raptor species.

Council Meeting Monday, July 16, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. Public Notice Proposed Zoning Bylaw Amendment to Regulate Cannabis Retailers Details: Yorkton City Council will consider a text amendment to Zoning Bylaw No. 14/2003, which proposes to regulate cannabis retailers. Yorkton has been approved by the Province for two cannabis retail licenses and the City must now consider zoning amendments to allow the awarded companies to proceed with the Provincial permit process.

Regardless of the City’s bylaws, cannabis retailers will not be allowed to operate until Federal cannabis legalization is approved, and until Provincial permits are issued. The amendment will be publicly advertised before Council makes their final decision. Information: To view the proposed bylaw, visit our website at There is a link to Public Notices on the home page. Questions regarding the proposed bylaw may be directed to: Michael Eger, Director of Planning, Building & Development Phone: 306-786-1758 Email: Public Hearing: A Public Hearing will be held on Monday, July 16, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. in City Hall Council Chambers, Yorkton, SK.

Women Entrepreneurs: Think Big

Women entrepreneurs are becoming a driving force in the Canadian economy.

risk to get where they are. It’s never easy for anyone to start, grow and maintain a business.

About 50 per cent of all businesses started today are started by women. However, small and medium-sized businesses owned by women earn less than half the revenue of comparable maleowned businesses, according to data from BDC client companies.

I would encourage you to take a moment and consider how far you’ve already come as entrepreneurs, business owners and role models for other women, despite the bumps in the road. Trust in yourself and your ability to create value and you will succeed.

Part of this is a function of industry vertical—many women operate specialized consulting and service-oriented businesses that can be considered boutique in size.

But you do need help. Gender is irrelevant—no entrepreneur achieves success without the support, coaching and belief of others.

But that’s not the whole story. Women tend to grow their businesses organically. They often have a higher awareness of risk which can impact their decisions to seek the capital they need to accelerate the growth of their businesses. Negative perceptions about dealing with banks and other institutions lead many to avoid looking for external sources of funding.

It’s vital to connect and build relationships with the mentors, peers, professional advisors and others who can help you build a better business and become a stronger entrepreneur.

Risk is Part of the Job But I would remind every single woman entrepreneur out there who is running a viable business that it took some measure of

Relationships are Key Develop relationships before you need them. Connect with other women entrepreneurs and find mentors who will challenge you, guide you and invest their time with you. Seek out partners, organizations and associations that can support you and your business. They’re everywhere, if you know where to look.

Build a relationship with your banker, so you know what your bank needs from you to understand your business and see value in supporting your growth. Developing the right contacts, relationships and advice are all part of a solid business strategy.

The time is Now Now is the time to invest in your future success by getting the growth capital you need to develop new services or new products, reach new markets, or to boost the productivity and profitability of your business. Canada needs all the entrepreneurs it can get. Don’t be content with the status quo. It doesn’t matter if you are a small business with a local market, or a potential exporter of goods and services, now is the time to invest in your business. For the good of our economy, this isn’t an option, it’s a necessity. Lesley Lawrence

Canadian Women are creating startups at the Highest rate among Women in the G20 Countries, a New Report shows.

proof sandy

email: arielraelacusta@gmail. com

Canadian women are starting businesses at a higher rate than their counterparts in all other G20 countries, according to a new global report published.

considering some of the barriers they face in traditional employment.

How women are Contributing to the Economy

“Entrepreneurship is another avenue for women who have talent and ability and who want to take care of their own security and families.”

“Canada has seen a surge of entrepreneurship in our economy over the last 20 years, and women have been at the forefront, launching businesses at rates that often outpace men,” said Karen Hughes, a professor at the University of Alberta’s Alberta School of Business and Department of Sociology, and author of the 2015/16 biennial Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) Canada Report on Women’s Entrepreneurship.

Why women are Driven to go Solo

Women’s firms are also creating more jobs. “The majority of female entrepreneurs are employers (both in early-stage and established businesses), but there’s still a big group who are going it solo.”

“Now they’ve moved to first place from third, internationally, in terms of starting up and running businesses that are younger than 3.5 years. That’s 13.3 per cent of women in Canada compared with 10 per cent in 2014.”

“Only 15 per cent said their business was started out of necessity. So it’s not driven primarily by poor economic conditions, though this is an issue for some women. But most women are recognizing and identifying opportunities,” Hughes pointed out.

Hughes said that the increase, though not a dramatic jump, aligns with the high participation of women in the labour force. “It’s clear that women in Canada have a lot of interest in entrepreneurship, and this was shown in the attitudes measured in the report, as well.”

Women are more confident than ever, too, according to the GEM Canada study.

Gaining insight into women entrepreneurship is important for fully understanding women’s economic and leadership contributions, especially

There is also no gender gap in fearing failure in this year’s report, whereas in 2014, men reported greater confidence than women.

When asked what motivated women to be entrepreneurs—defined as any attempt at a new business or business venture, which could include being self-employed or expansion of an existing business—opportunity was cited the most.

“Four out of five women said they felt well prepared and capable of running a business,” she said.

The data also indicate that although job growth is expected in the future for established female entrepreneurs, early-stage female owners expect less job growth than men—a trend that is true for Canadian female entrepreneurs as well as those in other countries. “Those modest expectations for job growth do need to be considered,” she said. There is debate over how much Canada’s startup culture contributes to the economy, added Hughes. “My view is that women entrepreneurs have a lot of diversity, and they need to be supported and mentored to grow. Some women are seeking very high growth, some are running productive businesses contributing to local economies, and others are balancing work and family. These are all different ways of contributing to the economy and important parts of the picture,” she said. The full report is available online at

Representing 8 Different Farm Insurance Companies Including

Horse sector helps economy When it comes to agriculture the equine sector sometimes seems to get lost. The sector is often seen more as a hobby, or perhaps falling into the realm of sport, than an agriculture enterprise, and there are some obvious reasons for being unsure exactly what box to check in terms of horses. But what should not be lost is the significant impact the horse industry has on our economy. The impact was brought into sharp focus again last week when attending the Yorkton Exhibition Association’s summer fair. Each day I drove

down the road at the back of the grounds right through the middle of the parking for those involved in chuckwagon and chariot races. It is an impressive site seeing the semitrailer units, horse trailers and campers sprawled across the grass, and the horse tethered out awaiting a chance to run the track. In talking to Kevin Gareau president of the Eastern Professional Chariot & Chuckwagon Association (EPCCA), I learned that there were 45 chuckwagons entered in the Yorkton show, and 53 chariots. A bit of math and I realized that would account for 286

Agriculture THIS WEEK

Calvin Daniels horses on the grounds, add a few more carried as extras, or training purposes and it is easy to suggest 300 horses were on-site. Gareau said a young horse for racing might be purchased for $2,500, but the best were about $10,000. If you average that at a modest $5,000 the value of horses for

racing in Yorkton was $1.5 million. Of course the horses, while the single most important component of racing, are only a small part of the cost of what is very much a hobby for drivers, but also an economic stimulator. Every hitch requires a wagon and harness, the horses need feed. A

farrier will be needed to shoe the horses. On occasion a veterinarian will be required. And that is just to run the track. Drivers in the EPCCA come from all over the province. Gareau as an example is from Domreny, SK., which according to Google is about a 350 kilometre jaunt from Yorkton. Rolling a truck and trailer down the highway means gas purchases, flat tires that need fixing, and dozens of other pop up costs drivers will face as Gareau noted they hit some 18 communities for 40 days of racing each summer. There is also of

course the cost of the trailers, many manufactured on the Prairies, and of trucks, and campers, barbecues and tarps and a hundred other things chuckwagon drivers and their families will require for life on the road from June through September each year. While the horse industry is not the critical aspect of farming it once was, it does remain a sector which sees dollars spreading through the local economy, with the chuckwagon and chariot sector a clear example of that.

Judge happy with 4-H cattle quality By Calvin Daniels Staff Writer The quality of cattle at the 2018 edition of the Yorkton Regional 4-H Show was very good according to show judge Ryan Hurlburt. “It’s a quality 4-H regional show,” said the judge on the noon break from picking the red ribbon winners in various classes Wednesday morning. “… The quality’s been fine.” Hurlburt said the champion and reserve females of course stood out. “They were a very strong pair of heifers,” he said, adding they were put together in a similar way showing length and capacity to become good cows. The annual show, held as part of the annual summer fair in the city attracted eight area 4-H clubs with members showing 78 steers, and 44 females. In addition there were 19 ‘cloverbud’ participants, members who are just starting out in 4-H and are ages six-to-eight. In terms of judging,

Hurlburt said he looks at the animals in the show ring from “a diverse background in cattle.” Hurlburt said he is a “fourth generation livestock producer,” who grew up on the family farm where they run a cow/calf operation of purebred Angus and Gelbvieh, as well as commercial animals among the 200-cows. In addition to working with cattle growing up, Hurlburt has sharpened his eye for cattle as an auctioneer currently with Saskatoon Livestock Sales which sells some 100,000 head of cattle annually, but also with two years at Heartland Livestock in Yorkton. In 2016 he won the LMAC Canadian Livestock Auctioneer Championships. So what does the varied experiences in the cattle industry have Hurlburt looking for from the 4-H cattle in the Yorkton ring? The answer depends on the class. “What’s important for females, it starts with structural soundness. I always say cows need

The Yorkon Regional 4-H Show was one of the kick-off events for the Yorkton Exhibition. to be sound from the ground,” he said. After ensuring a cow has the feet and legs to walk a pasture all summer for a number of years, Hurlburt then looks for other things in a female. For example, he said a female needs “some rib shape” that shows

the capacity for a calf to develop. And of course beef cattle are raised to produce beef so the females need to show some muscling as well, said Hurlburt. In the case of a cow/ calf pair Hurlburt said he gets to see what the cow is producing in terms of a calf, adding at

this time of year the cow scores about 70 per cent in his mind, and the calf 30 per cent. In the fall as the calf grows it takes on a more important role in terms of picking the best pair, edging closer to 40 per cent of the decision. With steers, it really comes down to the beef the animal should yield

when it goes to market, in the case of a show such as Yorkton they head to slaughter at day’s end. “As far as structure and muscle that doesn’t change,” said Hurlburt, but the importance of feet and legs is reduced since they have made it essentially as far as they need to carry the animal.

Ex a learning experience for shadow judge By Calvin Daniels Staff Writer The light horse ring at the Yorkton summer fair was a classroom of sorts for Natasha Quigley. Quigley was shadowing show judge Tammy Hayward as part

of a process to become a carded judge through the Saskatchewan Horse Federation (SHF). She said going through the process just made sense given her background. “I’ve judged 4-H and small shows and been a coach,” explained

Quigley who hails from Gravelbourg. “I’ve been involved in the horse industry since I was three, so it was the next step.” Quigley has shown horses for years, typically Arab stock, and generally in the western

riding classes, although she added she hopes one day to become active in events where she and her horse are working with cattle. Judging puts her on the other side of things, and the 40-year-old said the training provides a

good foundation. She explained the SHF set up the training program as a way to foster greater consistency among judges, and as a way to ensure a thorough knowledge of class rules. “You do some classroom work,” she said,

adding there are tests associated with that element of the program. And then there is what essentially is an apprenticeship of sorts where those taking the course must shadow at least four different judges over a Continued on Page A12

different,” she said, adding “the way Tammy scores halter classes is very different from the judge I worked with last.” The differences provide an opportunity to develop an approach based on different aspects from those shadowed. “It’s picking out what-

And one more very important garden note: Wednesday, Aug. 8 is the date of the Yorkton and District Horticultural Society’s Annual Fruit, Flower and Vegetable Show at St. Gerard’s Parish Complex. This show brings you the best of the gardening year: fruit and vegetable displays, cut flowers, plant displays, and flower arrangements. Your admission price includes tea or coffee and dainties. It’s a lovely way to spend an afternoon, so bring a friend and join us! G’day, mate! Let’s chat about a plant that originally hails from the land down under, New Zealand and Australia. It’s the kangaroo apple. The five-dollar name for this plant is “solanum aviculare”, and it’s a cousin to the nightshade family of plants. In its natural environment, it can grow up to twelve feet tall, in a shrub form. For us, of course, it makes a bold and beautiful addition to a flowerbed or in a planter. It will grow several feet high, and the large leaves are very pretty: we can compare them to the lobed shape of an oak leaf. The flowers are small compared to the size of the plant, and come in purple-blue or white.


Gardener’s Notebook They look very much like potato blossoms. Because of where it came from, it likes full sun and can tolerate heat and humidity very well. It can also tolerate soil that is a bit heavier. (Just as a note: I read that when planting instructions says “full sun”, that is defined as the plant having “full exposure to direct sun for at least six hours each day”. Good to know!) As for moisture, it likes evenly moist soil but well-drained soil. So no wet feet! For almost every plant, the amount of water it receives is very important. If we neglect to water them and they wilt, the roots are also drying up; if we leave them in this state too long, the plant will not be able to revive itself. On the other side of the coin is watering them too much, which is also dangerous because if the plant is waterlogged, air cannot get to the roots and they can begin to rot. Most plants do well in

evenly moist soil. And if we want to give our plant a little treat, we can apply some balanced fertilizer over the summer. A plant like this is certainly a conversation piece, and would make a beautiful addition to your plantings. And if we want to get really exotic, we can call it the “poroporo” plant, which is what they call it in New Zealand. Mark it down in your garden journal under “new plants to try!” It’s beautiful! The Yorkton and District Horticultural Society maintains a website at www.yorktonhort. ca Visit us and see what’s new, and what’s coming up with the group! Whether you are out puttering in your garden or sitting quietly and enjoying the serene atmosphere, savour every day in your garden! Just be sure to wear a hat! Have a great week!

Getting old hurts - but God remains present Yorkton This Week | | Wednesday, July 11 2018

The Preacher and I travelled a thousand summer miles between Dad’s home and ours recently. We took a bed and breakfast a mile or so down the road from his care facility and visited daily between naps and meals. We played checkers for an hour one afternoon, he and I. When the board held only two sets of five kings battling for

the field, he stole two of mine in one go. “Daddy, you’re good at this,” I wrote on his whiteboard. His hearing loss makes audible conversation almost impossible. He read the words (upside down, mind you) and shook his head. Minutes later, he won fair and square. Will someone please explain to me how an almost 94-year-old brain,

unable to grasp how a whiteboard works, what

province is home or (at times) whether I’m his wife or daughter, still possesses the cunning to plan moves and plot strategy? In the background, his television displayed colourful scenic images. Dad watched a strutting male peacock, tail spread regally. It reminded me of a Vancouver park our family visited often in my childhood. Peacocks and flamingos wandered freely. Monkeys, bears, whales, and armies of scolding black squirrels entertained us. Dad laughed often there. “Remember Stanley

Park?” I wrote, hoping we could talk about those trips; recall days when life held more colour. His elegantly sterile care facility feels to him only a pretty white (and achingly lonely) prison. He shook his head. “I don’t know that game. I wouldn’t know how to play.” I sighed and drew a tic-tac-toe grid on the board. He placed an X in the centre. On his next turn he scribbled an O in the corner. Out in the hall, a patient called for help. Tulips appeared on the television, blazing red. “Remember how Mom loved flowers?” I wrote. Mom died in 2014. “Yes. I remember.” He smiled and closed his eyes. “Do you ever see her, around where you live? Do you see Jesus, too?” His eyes shut again. “Dad, take a nap. It’s ok!” He shook his head vehemently. “No, I wouldn’t know what to do!” then his head


dropped. “I think I’ll lie down,” he said finally. I helped him transfer from his wheelchair. Lifted his feet onto the bed. Arranged his pillows. I want to snatch Dad from this end-of-life confusion. From this place and time where loneliness wraps him like a shroud, lowering the corners of the wide smile I’ve loved since childhood. My siblings live nearby and visit regularly, but none of us can be with him always. We struggle with that. I sit with my Bible open – as Dad often still does. My heart is heavy. But in that book, God speaks to me. Reminds me of his promise that Dad is never really alone. That even in these tattered years, ragged in understanding, God is present. That one day, Dad’s faith (and ours) will become sight. He will see Jesus – and Mom too. Till then, we pray and carry on.

People used to primarily find music through the radio, which was always a problem for people with odd tastes in music and a distinct lack of nearby radios that played music you liked. My own fondness for the 1970s is entirely due to the oldies station being the only thing you could reliably get in a tractor that was not country music. The radio is not particularly personalized, as it is for everyone. If you typically like the most popular songs, this is fine; if you don’t, you aren’t going to find much there.

Spotify built a business on people wanting something tailored to them. Their marketing push was that people would get recommendations based on what they liked, and the more they listened, the more personalized it got. It’s an appealing idea, though there’s always this feeling that the service might be pushing you in specific directions. So long as you generally like the songs you hear, it’s not too suspicious. That is, until recently, when a publicity stunt got out of hand. Drake released a new


Thinking I do with words...

album, called Scorpion, on the Canada Day weekend. Spotify, like a friend who just discovered a new band, insisted everyone had to hear it. Drake headlined every product category and playlist. Want to praise the lord with Fresh Gospel?

Here’s Drake. How about the best of British? Well, Canada recognizes the Queen, here’s Drake. Ambient Chill? How about Ambient Drake? This stunt did not do Spotify any favors, as the service was roundly mocked for forcing Drake

on its users. It also highlighted a problem with how people discover new music. If Drake is for everyone, how much are these playlists based on what we play? Is the service really reacting to the user? Are we stuffing less well known artists in a closet so we get more Drake? Frustration aside, is this really that different from regular radio, which was also playing Drake over the weekend? It wasn’t worth it to Spotify, now embroiled in a controversy, and it wasn’t worth it to Drake, whose album would have

been popular anyway. The entire thing is a silly mess that could have been avoided, but now people question if their playlists are a lie and they’re being lead down musical paths they wouldn’t otherwise travel down. For people not interested in the mainstream, what good is Spotify now, since they were just recommended the most mainstream artist out there? Finding new music has always been a challenge and this stunt just revealed that it has never stopped being a challenge. It’s possible it never will.

A key element of chuckwagon races is getting around the start barrels cleanly and out onto the track running hard.

Racing in the blood for Assoc. president By Calvin Daniels Staff Writer Chariot and Chuckwagon races have long been a staple fare at the Yorkton Exhibition. Dozens of drivers and trailer loads of horses converge on the city each year for three days of racing, arriving in the early morning hours Wednesday straight from racing in Weyburn Tuesday evening. When the final race is run in Yorkton Friday they load and head down the highway to race in Sheho Saturday. Over the summer members of the Eastern Professional Chariot & Chuckwagon Association (EPCCA) will hit some 18 communities driving some 40 days of races, all of it for the love of the sport. At least that is what keeps Kevin Gareau of Domremy, SK. driving. “I drive three carts and two wagons,” he said Thursday morning, a quiet time before the action of racing began in the afternoon. Gareau hits the road in June and the final races are in September. In July he will see home for only six days. “I get holidays and this is what I do. I don’t go to the lake,” he said, adding for all the drivers “this is our round of golf.” Gareau is busy during the actual races, driving not just his own rig, but for friend Casey Peterson who was injured in a training run and can no longer drive. The 40-year-old is equally busy off the track as he is in his second year as president of the EPCCA, an organization representing some 75 drivers. The involvement in the

“My dad drove. I’m a second generation driver … You see that all the time, second and third generation families … Not many people start right off the street.” — Kevin Gareau sport was basically hereditary. “My dad drove. I’m a second generation driver,” he said. “… You see that all the time, second and third generation families … Not many people start right off the street.” And that tradition is repeating as 15-year-old Shae Lynn Gareau, Kevin’s daughter is into her second season driving chariots. Dad admitted watching his daughter go round the track for the first time was both gratifying and scary. “It was nerve racking for me,” he said, but he added “I had confidence in her,” that helped him recognize she could do it. “… You have to trust in the horses and the people with you.” Gareau has two more children, ages 12 and nine, and he admitted he will be proud if they choose to race one day. Of course Gareau could

remember his own first race on a track at Mistawasis in 1996. “The first time I was not sure what to expect. I had done it lots at home,” he recalled. But, Gareau made it around the track safely, and he said that is something he still looks at as a lesson that in the end, win, or lose, safe trips are paramount. Gareau said drivers are aware there is a danger to the sport, but they focus a lot on keeping everyone safe. “It’s in the back of your mind. That’s what makes you careful. Everybody knows the danger of it,” he said. The first race also gave Gareau a sense of pride. “It’s a sense of accomplishment that’s pretty neat … I still hold on to that to this day,” he said. As for family, Gareau’s father, 73, no longer drives, but he and his wife do rail down

the road following their son at most of the meets. “They like to come and camp and watch the races,” he said, adding racing is an integral part of their family. “It’s what we talk about at Christmas and Easter, the outfit, or ‘did you hear what happened to this driver?’” For all the drivers it is just a hobby – Gareau admitted his winnings Wednesday would not fill his gas tank – albeit one that comes with a significant cost. You can start with young horses that might cost only $2,500, but top rigs are running thoroughbred stock worth upwards of $10,000, said Gareau. The horses are only part of what you need, but are the critical aspect of the sport. “Everybody does it for the love of the horses,” said Gareau, adding he takes some

exception to those who think the horses are ill-treated by the sport. “I would challenge anybody in any equine event or business to provide more consistent care. These horses are well cared for.” Gareau said the horses are athletes and as a result get the best feed, and care so they can perform at the top level. And competition is keen. Gareau pointed to the races in Yorkton Wednesday where the first place wagon rounded the track in 65:07, with the 43rd place wagon, (two did not earn times), ran a time of 72:31, so the entire field was within a narrow seven-and-a-halfsecond window. The three-day Yorkton meet is the biggest event of the summer as a joint event with the Manitoba Pro Chuckwagon & Chariot Association. This year the meet attracted 45 chuckwagons and more than 50 chariots, which Gareau said adds some extra excitement for drivers. “The competition is real good,” he said, adding having the Manitoba drivers means some different match-ups. “We see some faces we’ve known for a long time but don’t see every weekend.” For fans, they tend to like the chuckwagons best. “They’re the highlight. Chariots are exciting and they’re good, but lots of people are there to watch the wagons,” said Gareau. So what makes the wagons so popular? “There’s just more going on. There’s more horses. It’s a very exciting sport,” offered Gareau.

Inaugural rugby season holds promise Major League Rugby held its inaugural championship game on the weekend. The game featured the Glendale Raptors and Seattle Seawolves which was ultimately a matchup of the best of season one. The Raptors were the top team through the regular season, and for their part the Seawolves were arguably the best team in terms of fan support with regular sellouts. The Seawolves would prevail 23-19 in what had to be a bit of a surprise finish, thanks in part to a try from Canadian Ray Barkwell, and the planning of Canadian playercoach Phil Mack. Seattle is actually spotted with Canadian players including Brock Staller, Cam Polson, George Barton, Mozac Samson, and Nakai Penny, so they were the team I have followed

most closely this season. While the MLR season was generally positive for the sport, it wasn’t without concerns in the sense that any new league would like more fans in the stands. The league has been cautious settling into smaller venues, but full stands were still not an every game occurrence. But the season has been one that would seem to lay a solid foundation for rugby to get a permanent foothold in terms of a pro level league in North America. The sport will get another boost in 2019 with the next world cup to be held in Japan with the United States already qualified, and Canada with a backdoor chance. And, growth in the MLR is going to happen. New York has already been announced for 2019, and it is expected at least two other cities will be


Opinion part of the loop. Where those teams are will be interesting to see, with my hopes clearly on the Ontario Arrows being one of them. That said Washington, Los Angeles, Dallas, Sacramento, Boston and Chicago are among a list of nearly 20 cities mentioned in various online threads in recent months to want into the league. As a sports fan I’ve always been interested in new leagues that pop up every once in a while. For example, the Global T20 Canada cricket tournament has been

going on in Toronto the last couple of weeks. Apparently, Canada has a long cricket history, dating back to the 1800s when it participated in the first ever official International cricket match staged in North America against the USA. This tournament has teams representing teams from Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Vancouver, and former YTW reporter and cricket fan Thom Barker tells me via Facebook the tourney is hoped to be a prelude to a full-fledged Canadian

league. I can’t say I list cricket anywhere near my top-10 team sports to watch, but I recognize it is popular in countries such as India and Pakistan and that we have many immigrants from those countries in Canada which could create a fan base for a new league. And, if a league started and a sports channel picked up games, I would at least check out a game or two to see if cricket could grow on me as a sport to watch. It is interesting that new pro sports leagues in Canada are being considered. The Canadian Professional Lacrosse League was promoted to start this year, but the field lacrosse league never took flight, although the league’s Facebook page is now suggesting a spring 2019 launch. It would be outstanding if the league got

off the ground, but it does seem like a long shot. It would seem the same scenario surrounds the Canadian Arena League a new proposed professional arena/ indoor football league designed to bring threedown Canadian rules action to arenas across Canada. “Each team will be made up of a 20-man roster,” notes their website at “... Each team will play on a 50-yard field similar to our counter parts in the United States. All teams will play a 10 game schedule.” Again, it’s said set to launch in the spring of 2019, this would be great to see, but sadly it’s hard to envision it happening. Thankfully the MLR seems set to grow, and that is good enough for now in my world.

This year 14 cars took part in the event, up from 10 in 2017. When the final fender was crunched and grill smashed Bernie Bilay from Dauphin, MB. was the event winner. Staff Photos by Calvin Daniels

Sport and art meet in new partnership A new partnership will help promote by facets of culture in the parkland; art and sport. In the summer of 2019 pARTners Art Gallery in the Yorkton Public Library will be home to a multi-artist, multi-media show. And that show will have a sport-theme thanks to a partnership with the Parkland Association of Disc Golf, (PADG). “I was talking to a local artist about doing a piece with a disc golf theme, and at the same time the PADG was going through the licensing process to sell tickets on a disc golfthemed quilt, and the idea of a show just sort of clicked in my head,” said PADG president Calvin Daniels. Never a particularly shy guy, Daniels threw the idea at Tonia Vermette with the Yorkton Arts Council who books the pARTners Gallery. “I thought it was a fun idea. Our pARTners Gallery is a great place for some pretty unique shows, and this should be one of those,” she said.

So now it’s up to artists throughout the parkland region to take up the challenge. “This will be a multimedia show, so it’s open to paintings, photography, fibre art (quilts etc), even small sculptures,” said Vermette. “The more diversity in the work, the better the show in my mind.” Daniels said he can envision some pretty cool and unique options. “As this idea rolled around in my head for a while I was thinking how interesting art done right on a golf disc might be, or photography from a drone, and personally I’d love to see some cartoon style art, I think those would be awesome,” he said. “The great thing about this is that artists have all summer to get out to the courses in the area to find inspiration,” added Vermette. Deadline for entry would be June 27, 2019 with artwork being dropped of the Community pARTners Gallery, located in the Yorkton Public Library

from June 27 - 29. Entry forms will be available from the Yorkton Arts Council office, the Yorkton Public Library and online at and PADG. The show will be in pARTners through July and August 2019, and there will be a reception to highlight the event at that time. Anyone seeking information on the PADG can find them on Facebook, or email at — Submitted by the Parkland Association of Disc Golf

Cards best the Bulls in pair By Calvin Daniels Staff Writer The Yorkton Cardinals found a visit by Lethbridge for a pair of Western Major Baseball League games just what they needed to get back to winning. It was a day for the pitcher’s under near perfect baseball weather at Jubilee Park Sunday as the Bulls and Cards took to the field. Hunter Sanford would be masterful on the hill for the Cardinals allowing only two hits, while walking two and striking out nine, going the distance in shutting out the visitors. Yorkton would find runs scarce as well, leaving 10 on base, but managing to plate two runs in the seventh for the eventual 2-0 win. For his part Hunter said his stuff was working and he was able to spot it to both sides of the plate effectively. “I was able to get competitive strikes,” he said. Hunter said he isn’t always a strikeout pitcher, but Sunday the strikeouts just piled up. “It depends on my stuff for the day,” he said, adding “I had good twostrike pitches that got batters out.” Monday the offences of both teams came to the fore as the teams squared off again at Jubilee Park. Yorkton scored one in the bottom of the first inning to take an early lead, but the Bulls scored three in the third to take

then added one in the sixth, a home run by Griffey Halle, before the Bombers added one in the seventh to round out a 3-2 score in favour of the Cardinals. Parker Hubbard was the winning pitcher on five innings of work with six strikeouts. Austin Skelhorn picked up the save. In the second game Yorkton took a one-run lead in the third, but could muster no more offence. That was not the case for the Bombers who scored three in the fifth, and added a pair in the seventh for a 5-1 win. Wryland McKnight took the loss for Yorkton, based on six innings of work where he scattered seven hits, and gave up three runs, but only one of those earned. He struck out five.

Following two home wins over Lethbridge the Yorkton Cardinals head west for a tour through Alberta. the lead. But in the bottom of the third the Cardinals scored four to regain the lead, thanks to a threerun homer that left the field just to the right of the 400-foot marker in centrefield by first baseman Riley Jepson. “I had a good count two-and-o, and got a fastball up that I got enough of to drive it out,” said Jepson after the game. It was Jepson’s second homer of the season, although he said he likes to think home runs are a part of his game. He said he is starting to find the groove at the plate, much

the same way the team is starting to get better. “We didn’t start the season the way we wanted to,” he said, but added they are becoming more competitive as the season wears on. Lethbridge drew within one in the top of the fourth, then evened the score 5-5 with a run in the eighth. In the ninth Thirus Jones drew a one out walk for Yorkton, then scored the game winner all the way from first on a double to the centrefield wall by Griffey Halle. Tyson Black started for Yorkton on the mound

going five innings. Matt Zanutto earned the win with two innings of relief. The two wins leaves the Cardinals with an 8-20 record, worst in the WMBL leaving the team 14-games back of frontrunning Weyburn, and 4.5 games back of fourth place Swift Current. Head coach John Farrington said the Cardinals are starting to play better baseball. “We’re starting to come together,” he said. “The atmosphere is great.” Farrington said the team is starting to get solid pitching, like

Hunter’s performance Sunday, and timely hits, like in Monday’s win. In the case of Hunter’s complete game Farrington said, “that’s the kind of thing that can really jumpstart a team.”

Bandits visit

After a postponement July 4, Yorkton took to the field to host the Brooks Bandits Thursday in a doubleheader. The teams traded single runs in the second inning, Yorkton’s run coming courtesy of a Riley Jepson home run. Yorkton went ahead with a run in the fourth,

Rocky Mountain hop, part one I flexed my fingers on the hot steering wheel. I rolled down the window and spat out my wad of flavourless gum. I flicked through the radio stations. Channel after channel of distorted static greeted me. I rubbed my sunburnt arm as I cracked my neck and peered forward. The endless highway stretched before me, surrounded by seas of green. In a nearby field, a cow mooed. I had been on the road for four hours. I wasn’t even at the halfway point of my journey. Once in a while, you have to do something foolish. We live in a society that values order, control, and reliability. Farmers have to get up at the same time every day

or we’d all starve. Accountants have to file their numbers down to the umpteenth decimal or our economy would descend into a Mad Maxesque hellscape. Politicians have to make important decisions or we’d have no one to pummel with our impotent rage. We need routines. But every so often, it’s necessary (and satisfying) to burn your routine to the ground. It’s vital to toss your schedule into a pyre and turn the ashes into something new. Shattering a cycle, however you do it, is the only way to stay sane. I’ll be honest with you folks; I was in a bit of rut these last few months. The winter hangover blahs clung onto summer like a tenacious barna-


Settling in... cle. I needed to hit the restart button. But what would be the kindling for this ritual fire? Last week, I found myself with five days off. As I browsed through my computer looking for something to do, I stumbled across Google Maps. Bored, I scrolled up, moving my God’s eye view far above Yorkton. I saw all of Saskatchewan and beyond. Far to the left, clinging to the side of

Alberta, I saw them: The Rockies. I thought, “Why not?” So, I packed my bags, booked a motel, and set out for Banff. I’ve been meaning to see the mountains of Canada’s great west ever since I moved to the Prairies, but I always found an excuse to put it off. July seemed like the right month to finally do it. I didn’t jump into this journey completely half-

baked. I stuffed my trunk with water and granola bars. I filled my iPhone with dozens of podcasts. I borrowed an 11-hour audio book from the library. I was ready (supposedly). Living in Saskatchewan for close to a year, I thought I had grown accustomed to Prairie driving. I’ve survived the monotonous stretch of flatness, straight lines, and grid roads on numerous trips. The drive to Banff injected the Prairie flatness with steroids. It was a nine-hour journey with, at most, three turns. I shot through Saskatchewan and Alberta with the directness of an arrow. My car ploughed past farms, villages, and gas stations.

They all blurred together into a green and yellow soup. It was like riding a carousel; the same images repeated themselves ad nauseam. The road to Banff seems custom built to break the mind due to boredom-induced insanity. But thanks to our modern conveniences, I clung onto my levelhead. I flipped through radio stations, CDs, podcasts, and two hours of the audiobook (which was surprisingly bingeable). I defeated road madness. As the sun retreated to the horizon, I checked into the motel. I collapsed onto the bed, drifting into a heat exhaustion coma. But my journey had just begun. Tomorrow, I had to climb a mountain. Tune in next week.

DERENOWSKI - Iris Myrtle (nee Zacharuk). December 18, 1924July 5, 2018. With a tear in our eye, we announce the passing of our mom, Iris Derenowski at the grand age of 93.5 years. Left to carry on her legacy and share many memories are her children: Romaine, Denise (Wayne) and Loren (Shelly); grandchildren Cora (Adam), Nadine, Craig, Michael, Chelsea, Emma (Justin) and Ella and great grandchildren: Jordon, Caitlin and Lukas. Also, remembered by her brothers Michael and Stephen (Irene); sister in law Dorothy and many special nieces, nephews and friends. Predeceased by her beloved husband Peter, daughter in law Eileen, brothers Walter and Russell, sister Phyllis (Nick) and sister in law Winnie. Iris was born on a farm near Stornoway, SK to the parents of Michael and Catherine Zacharuk. She was a dedicated teacher beginning her long career in the tiny hamlet of Somme in 1943 and retiring in Yorkton in 1985. She found a way to balance work and motherhood. Iris loved to travel and explore the world, was an avid reader, a champion bowler, an impeccable organizer and an amazing “head” gardener (but we all know Peter did the actual work). She contributed many volunteer hours to the Royal Canadian Legion, RCL Women’s Auxiliary and the Ukrainian Orthodox Hall. We will miss her greatly. A celebration to honour her life and legacy is planned for Friday, July 13, 2018 at 2:00pm at Christie’s Funeral Home in Yorkton with Rev Jen Dresser officiating. She will be laid to rest beside her loving husband Peter in the Yorkton Cemetery. Special thanks to all the kind and caring staff at Canterbury Foundation in Edmonton, AB. Donations may be made to Alzheimer’s Society of Canada or Osteoporosis Canada.

WILSON - Mrs. Gwen Wilson of Yorkton, beloved wife of Russell Wilson Gwen passed away peacefully at the age of 91. Gwendoline “Gwen” Fay Wilson (nee Merriman) was born January 23, 1927 in Yorkton, SK, daughter of Arthur and Laura (nee Walton) Merriman. Gwen was the oldest of six children raised on the Merriman farm N.W. of Springside. Gwen attended the Clear Creek School until grade 8 and then took her grade 9 by correspondence at home. She never completed her schooling, instead she helped on the family farm. She later worked at the Theodore Hospital as a Nurse’s Aide for 3 years. In 1949 she met the love of her life, Russell Wilson, whom she married on October 9, 1950. They resided on the Wilson homestead by Wilson Lake. They worked side by side on the farm. They were later blessed with 5 daughters, Fay, the first born lost at birth, then Jocelyn, Valerie, Deborah & Barbara. Gwen was a wonderful wife and mother. Gwen enjoyed reading romance novels. As time went on, she began reading the Bible and found God and faithfully served the Lord for the rest of her life. Gwen was a faithful member of “The Truth”. She also enjoyed crocheting, knitting, embroidery, sewing, cooking, playing the organ, gardening, especially her flowers. Gwen’s favorite dining place was Pizza Hut and she loved her soft ice cream, especially banana splits. Gwen especially enjoyed seeing her grandchildren, great grandchildren and being with family and friends. Gwen always had a smile, great laugh, and a hug and kiss for everyone! When Gwen lost her grandson Tim Werner a year and a half ago, she was heartbroken and wished it would have been her instead. However, her faith comforted her as 2 Timothy 4:17 reads “but the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength.” Gwen and Russell had a wonderful marriage that lasted 67 years, their love for one another was an inspiration to all. Their advice for a long, happy marriage was never go to bed mad and kiss and say I Love You every night. Gwen and Russell moved to Yorkton in 1992 when Russell’s vision started to fail. Gwen became a wonderful caregiver to Russell when he lost his vision nearly six years ago. Gwen was blessed with a long, healthy and rewarding life up until the last 3 years when she started battling cancer. As her health started to fail and she began to find it difficult to take care of Russell and their home, they moved to the Yorkton Crossing Seniors Home in March of 2017. Making many new friends and being admired by all. Gwen always got compliments on all of her outfits and how nice she looked. The move at the beginning was very hard for Gwen to accept for she was always such a strong and independent woman. Giving up a lot of what she enjoyed the most was difficult for her. This past year became a struggle for Gwen but her faith kept her strong and she fought until there was no fight left. Gwen was dearly loved and will be sadly missed. She was predeceased by her parents, Arthur and Laura Merriman, daughter Fay in infancy, brother Ardis, brothers-in-law Maurice Paciorka and Norm Schick, nephew Dale Schick, grandson Tim Werner.

SEBULSKY - Ronnie was born on January 21, 1950 in Foam Lake, SK to loving parents Peter and Victoria (Korpatnisky) of Sheho. He grew up on the family farm 3 1/2 miles South and 1 mile West of Sheho. A shy, quiet youngster he attended Fosti School until grade 8, then high school in Foam Lake graduating in 1968. Ronnie was very fortunate to have many friends and cousins in Sheho, with whom he grew up with. After high school, Ronnie worked for a couple of years and drove school bus for about 6 years. He became an orderly at University Hospital in Saskatoon, then worked as a volunteer with the Red Cross in Jamaica in 1974. Upon his return to Canada he worked in Vibank, SK as a bank manager for the Credit Union. Ronnie moved back to Sheho when his father Peter passed away in 1978, to help his family on the farm. In 1985, he started as a Village Clerk in Sheho, he took a 2 year U of R course in Local Government Administration, then worked for the Village of Theodore for 13 yrs. From there he moved to the R.M. of Insinger for 6 yrs and finally for the Village of Sheho for 9 yrs until his retirement in 2015 at the age of 65. Even in his retirement he was still driving a mail truck a few days a week. At one point he also opened Rock ‘N Rony’s Drive-In. He operated the drive-in, with a little help, until it became too much to work two jobs and had to close the drive-in. Ron was involved with the Sheho Rec Board for many years organizing the sports days, he could always be found in the camper being the banker; doing the books and deposits. Ron was also on the Parkland Valley Board of Directors for a number of years (Sports, Rec and Culture). Ron was an Associate Legion member until his passing. In his spare time, he worked for his good friend Danny Rudey at Dan’s Catering for many years. Throughout the years he made many lifelong friends and acquaintances, always stopping to say hello and chat. Ron was a compassionate, caring, intelligent and giving man, helping others with their problems or fixing things, finding a home for a family or helping people with legal matters. One of Ron’s main passions was creating beautiful Ukrainian Easter Eggs; he spent countless hours creating beautiful works of art. Ron had a green thumb in the garden and had a love for flowers, fruit trees and vegetables. His garden was always big and come harvest time always bountiful. One highlight in his life was on October 25, 2013, when he was set up on a blind date at the Theodore Rec Board fundraiser - this was the night he met Chris Bates. He was quiet at first but at the end of the night he asked Chris to go out with him and she said yes, he was on cloud nine! Ron and Chris enjoyed working side by side catering, gardening, planting flowers, baking, and going on road trips in the Chevy. Ron loved to joke around; you could often hear him saying “Giver Tar paper” or “Way to go Grace”. He also enjoyed his coffee row every day after 2:30 p.m. Family was very important to Ronnie, from picking stones for Chad to going to birthday parties at Amy’s. He loved just going for coffee to catch up with family and friends. Ron travelled to Jamaica, Mexico, England with his friend Gerald Hoffman, a Caribbean cruise with his sister Bev, Niagara Falls and Toronto. Ron worked hard and enjoyed his life and everything that came with it. He is survived by his fiancé Chris Bates of Yorkton, her son Justin of Prince Albert, and daughter Roslyn of Yorkton; his brothers Randy (Dorothy) of Regina, Bernie (Faye) of Sheho, and sister Beverly (John) of Saskatoon; his nephews Colin (fiancé Sydney) of Mississauga, Chad (Danielle) and Nohl of Sheho, Tyler (Heather) Ryder and Kaliya of Regina, Kyle (fiancé Shayla) of Regina and niece Amy (Ryan) Gracie, Kallie and Nickson of Yorkton. He was predeceased by his father Peter in 1978 and his mother Victoria in 2013; and his god daughter Colette Medvid. Ron was a beloved brother, uncle, godfather and friend; he will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Words of sympathy and caring may be left for the family at Funeral arrangements entrusted to Narfason’s Funeral Chapel & Crematorium, Foam Lake, SK. 306-272-3212. Memory Eternal.

Unique flavour to The Dead South By Calvin Daniels Staff Writer With a sound built on a foundation of bluegrass The Dead South have been finding new fans around the world. The Regina-based band, which formed in 2012, has a busy schedule of performances across Canada, the United States and into Europe in the months ahead, but Friday they were in Yorkton playing the Painted Hand Casino Main Stage at the summer fair. Nathan Hilts, spokesperson for the group said the group formed with an idea that has since evolved.

So the band quickly used their love of bluegrass and created a slightly different sound. “It actually came together very quick and easy for us, like it was meant to be,” said Hilts. While The Dead South’s sound has a heart of bluegrass and classic folk it also has a unique energy that has been likened to punk music. Hilts said their sound comes from varied influences from “Saturday Night Polka Party” to

punk, encompassing everything the band members have listened too, and liked over the years. That process

includes the music liked by not just Hilts, but Scott Pringle (mandolin, vocals), Colton Crawford (banjo) and Danny Kenyon (cello) who were the band back in 2012. While on the road touring a lot The Dead South have recorded and released three albums. Their most recent album ‘Illusion & Doubt’ charted at number two on the Bluegrass US Billboards and won Best Saskatchewan Album of 2016. Their debut album ‘Good Company’, first released in 2014, is still

on the US Alternative Albums and Canadian All Categories Top Album charts, while their official music video to ‘Good Company’ has millions of views on YouTube, according to the band’s website. The band signed its first record deal with Germany’s Devil Duck Records in 2014. The touring paid off. In November 2015 The Dead South received the Canadian Independent Music Association’s Road Gold certification for ticket sales in excess of 25,000 over a 12-month


period, details their website. Hilts said being on the road is a big part of their success which he called “organic” in the sense early on they gained their fans without a great deal of radio airplay. “It was all word-of-mouth,” said, adding that has meant growing interest “playing bigger and bigger shows.” The extensive touring has meant adapting a lifestyle suited to the schedule. Hilts said they have come to realize they need time for themselves, and time to write new music too, something not always easy to do on the road. “One of the things we played as much as we can, we said yes to every possibility. We tried to be as many places as we could” he said, adding that is changing. “There was no time for ourselves.” So while still staying busy on the road, Hilts said they are carving out chunks of time to relax a bit more these days in order to keep things fresh. “We’ve got to take the time,” he said.

Team UP a puzzle game with charm It always fascinates when a game can be stored in a relatively small box, and yet once on the table the limited contents can hold a player’s attention so well. But that is exactly what Team UP! From designers Hadi Barkat, and Sébastien Pauchon. The first thing that caught my attention was that the components for Team UP are all wooden. I simply find wooden game pieces to be aesthetically more pleasing than plastic, and as a result I probably have something of a bias toward wooden games, but in this case it really does look sharp. In terms of game play, Team UP from the publisher Helvetiq, is a cooperative game: you are not opponents, you are partners. This creates an interesting dynamic that is not part of most games. The team are trying to do the best possible job of packing ‘boxes’ onto a pallet. (It should be noted here that you can play this solitaire quite well). “The goal of the game is to stack the boxes on the pallet as compactly as possible. The more full layers you stack, the more points you win. A perfect pallet is worth exactly 25 points,” explains the rules. The ‘boxes’ are wooden cubes of varying shapes, as well as having one side painted a colour, which becomes important as the game develops. Players draw cards from a deck which indicates the block colour you must use from the remaining blocks; or the shape you must use from the remaining blocks, regardless of the colour. In placing the boxes there are a number of rules to follow, but all are very easy to follow. For example a newly placed box must touch at least one other box, (there is a starting box placed each game), and the coloured side of the box must face up. A lot of the rules are simply common sense in terms of how you would imagine packing a pallet. For example, a box cannot extend past the boundaries of the pallet. Boxes may not overhang or ‘float’ above empty space. The box must be in full contact

THE MEEPLE GUILD (Yorkton) with the pallet or with one or several boxes below. The game ends if any of the following three situations occurs: All of the boxes have been stacked on the pallet, possible, but rare. There are no more cards in the draw pile. The players mutually agree to stop drawing new cards as the risk of penalties has become too high. Scoring is done in three steps: Count the number of layers that are 100 per cent complete. Each on is worth five points. Deduct one point for each box that was not stacked on the pallet. Deduct one point for each card placed face down in the discard pile. Apparently there is one known solution to achieving perfection, but reasonably it won’t happen since the cards would need to be in a particular

order and a player would then have to make the perfect placement each turn too. So reasonably you shoot for 20 points, and will generally have a piece or two orphaned, so 18 is likely the target that says you did as well as can generally be expected. There is replay here as you tend to want to try to do better, and there are simple rules for challenging friends to do better based on the same card draws, that are fun too. The quick game play, good looks, and ‘I can do better’ allure of Team Up! certainly make this a great time filler to add to a collection. Check it out at www. Thanks to fellow gamers Jeff Chasse, Trevor Lyons and Adam Daniels for their help in running through this game for review.

The divers jumped from heights three to 25-meters leaving audiences in awe as the pool was only eight-metres in diameter and three-metres deep.

Yorkton Regional High School 2018 Valedictory Address Good afternoon parents, teachers, family, friends, school board members, and fellow graduates. On behalf of the graduating class, I would like to thank you all for attending our ceremony today. I am honoured to be standing here representing the class of 2018. Graduation is a milestone that will inevitably divide our lives into “before” and “after”. Before this day, we have been able to depend on our parents and teachers to guide us through life. After this day, we must face our own challenges, pave our own path, and make our own future. But instead of focussing on the “after”, we should think about the “during”. We have spent four long years working towards this moment, and now that it is here we should take a moment to look back on how our time here has shaped us. What we have learned

here is the foundation upon which we will build the rest of our lives. We have learned the value of friendships, hard work, and that no matter what English teachers say, it is always possible to write an essay in one night. These lessons will serve us well in the future, no matter where it may lead. As I was writing this speech, I wracked my brain for a single defining memory that would bring us together as a graduating class. Eventually, I came to the conclusion that our high school experience cannot be reduced to one or two events for which everyone was present. I think of my experience at the YRHS as one large amalgamation of smaller, intimate moments. These are the moments that will stay with us: the lunches in the cafeteria, the group projects, the annual Friday Night Lights, the dreaded study hall,

Hanna Czinkota and of course the many RCRs that we all complained about but finally in grade twelve gave us a good laugh. However, I think we can all agree that none of us would like to remember Mr. Sharpe wearing a diaper. I would like to thank our teachers for putting in the effort to ensure we learned as much as we could, and a spe-

cial shout out to Mr. Miller for always bringing an extra light to the room. We could all take advice from him, and never let anyone “dull our shine”. Without the help from the teachers who went above and beyond, I’m sure many of us would not be up on this stage today. Our teachers have not only taught us course material, but many life lessons that we will be forever grateful for. I would also like to thank our families for supporting us from day one. Parents, you have always been by our side. From the first day of kindergarten, when we cried for you not to leave us, to today, when you are the ones crying. You have always been there to watch our games and support our other extracurriculars, and made sure we feared you enough to pass our classes. You are the reason why many of us are the people we are

today, and I thank you for your unconditional love and support through the years. Lastly, to my graduating class. Together we have made memories and formed lifelong friendships. Thank you to my friends and peers for giving me these memories and for making high school an enjoyable experience. In these last few months, the word “future” has become an unknown promise. Today, as we celebrate the last moments of the “during”, we can all be hopeful about the “after”. In our fast approaching future, let us all have the courage to chase our dreams, make mistakes, and reach our full potential. Thanks to our families, teachers, and peers, we have all the necessary skills to succeed in life. We will always endeavor to pursue excellence. Congratulations class of 2018!
