Long time local MP will not run again
It’s a been a long haul but Yorkton-Melville MP Garry Breitkreuz has officially announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2015. “For the past 20 years, I have had the sincere honour and privilege of representing the constituents of YorktonMelville, in east central Saskatchewan,” he says. “The experience has been both challenging and rewarding. I appreciate those who trusted me with the responsibility of working on the nation’s business in Parliament.” Breitkreuz, now 68, was first elected to the House of Commons in 1993, for the federal constit-

uency of Yorkton-Melville. He was re-elected in 1997, 2000, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2011. “One of the reasons I got into politics was because I saw government spending spiralling out of control – taxes and interest on the debt were becoming a huge burden that would ultimately be downloaded onto our children and grandchildren,” Breitkreuz notes, “I could not sit back and do nothing.” Breitkreuz has been active on many House of Commons’ standing committees over the
– Breitkreuz preps for retirement years including Procedure and House Affairs, Agriculture and Justice. From 2006 to 2010, he chaired the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security. He also introduced numerous private members’ bills on issues including property rights, parental rights and responsibilities, and pro-life matters. His experience overseas before becoming an M.P. also helped him to be effective on many parliamentary delegations to other countries. For a dozen years, Breitkreuz held an annual agriculture forum in the constituency to help keep farm producers informed on issues important to them. Our local MP gained national and international recognition for his extensive work on the federal firearms file. He took up the cause of gun owners’ rights back in 1995 when the Liberal government of the day introduced draconian gun control legislation under the guise of Bill C-68. “I hit the ground running. Canadian firearms owners were under siege by unfair laws created to make
gun ownership too difficult to maintain.” Years of research and over 500 Access-to-Information requests resulted in what is commonly referred to as “The Billion Dollar Boondoggle” – the costs incurred to implement the long-gun registry – one of the onerous measures in Bill C-68. In 2012, with a majority Conservative government, the long gun registry was finally scrapped – a victory for Canadian gun owners. Canada is only one of a few countries that have successfully reversed an anti-gun law. In recognition of his efforts, Breitkreuz has received numerous awards – most recently “International Legislator of the Year” by Safari Club International. He also saw the need to preserve and promote in Parliament the heritage activities of Canadians who enjoy the great outdoors. He created the Parliamentary Outdoors Caucus in June of 2006. It has grown into one of the biggest all-party caucuses on Parliament Hill. “I’ve hunted and fished with Conservatives,
Liberals, NDPers, and Greens who love to get into the outdoors. “The route to future legislation that will protect and maintain our rights is through elected members of all political stripes. I hope to see this caucus continue long after I leave Ottawa and will work toward that goal. “I am proud of my involvement in these and other national and local issues as a member of Parliament and as a member of the Conservative team,” adds Breitkreuz. “However, now it is time for me to begin preparations to leave public office, and I look forward to having more time to spend with my wife, Lydia, my children and grandchildren.” Breitkreuz and his staff will continue to work on behalf of the constituents of YorktonMelville for the remainder of the 41st Parliament. “There’s still more to do before I leave the House of Commons in October 2015, and I will continue to serve the interests and needs of my constituents,” he concludes.

Rediscover downtown Yorkton
By SHANNON DEVEAU N-R Writer
Yorkton’s downtown businesses are stepping up in support of each other to boost interest in downtown shopping and atmosphere. Last Thursday the Vintage Vault, located on Second Street off Broadway, in the city, announced an inaugural event called Rediscover Downtown which will feature local performers as well as other activities intended to get people out to explore the downtown core. Terri Pedersen from the Vintage Vault says the project, Rediscover Downtown, will be ongoing without an end date. “Our Thursday night initiative is meant to carry through the summer season and support other events organized by our YBID (Yorkton Business Improvement District). This holiday season we have already discussed a Winter Wonderland for the month of December so stay tuned for a magical holiday shopping experience this year.” Initially, says Pedersen, “we have started with Thursdays, but watch for events on other days too as we gain momentum. Like our Facebook page to stay connected.” To date, 14 businesses in a one block radius – 2nd Ave between Broadway and Smith, Broadway between 2nd and 3rd and 3rd Ave between Broadway and Smith – have jumped on board and all are invited to get in on the action. The ultimate goal says Pedersen, is to bring more vibrancy to the downtown core and to promote the amazing businesses in the area. “Also, to give individuals a place to explore and discover.” Businesses having been popping up more and more frequently, giving people reason to explore and enjoy Yorkton’s downtown. The Vintage Vault opened on October 26, 2013. “Situated in Yorkton’s downtown,” Pedersen says, we offer women’s luxury fashion at a fraction of the cost by reducing, reusing and recycling. Designer items are collected at end of season sales from stores in New York and Philadelphia, vintage items are shipped from Miami and Paris but the majority of items are consigned by discerning clientele who want to recycle their wardrobe. Our brands include Louis Vuitton, Prada, Dior, Burberry, Gucci, Louboutin and many more. “Our philosophy holds that all women are beautiful and we express our beauty in a variety of ways. Not only do we offer a place to shop and recycle your wardrobe but we are also a social outing and an affirmation of one’s inner self. The Vintage Vault offers a high-end shopping experience with the service of a couture shop. We have a commitment to impeccable customer service, a commitment to quality and a commitment to the environment. Find us on Facebook at yorktonvintagevault, on Instagram or visit our ebay store at V V Fashion and Accessories.” When asked if she thought it was important local businesses support each other and work together to strengthen the downtown business core Pederson’s response was, “Absolutely! One of the first things I noticed in the months building and stocking the store, was how supportive other businesses in the area were. My downtown team is a group of talented, intelligent, vibrant and extremely positive individuals. We are already operating as a synchronous family, so we want to invite our clients to experience that too.” Support from the community is also very important if we as residents want to continue to see growth and the addition of new services. “The key to getting really interesting business to thrive in Yorkton is by supporting and contributing to both our local economy but also to the energy in our downtown core. For example, Emily bravely played her guitar and sang for an hour in sub zero temps this Thursday – now that’s dedication to local culture!” Stay tuned for more on the downtown core and in your travels be sure to get out and check it out, there is much to offer!
LOCAL BUSINESS WAGNER’S FLOORING was named Yorkton’s Small Business of the year at Wednesday evening’s Yorkton Chamber of Commerce Celebrate Success event.
Celebrating local success stories By SHANNON DEVEAU N-R Writer Yorkton’s business sector gathered in the city last Wednesday evening to pay tribute to the best of the best at a sold out Yorkton Chamber of Commerce Celebrate Success event. Just over 80 nominations were received in 10 categories with the Business of the Year being named from all of the nominees. This year two local businesses were awarded the top overall honor – RH Electric garnered the award for Large Business of the Year and Wagner’s Flooring took home the award for Small Business of the Year. “The overwhelming response from everybody has just been awesome,” said emotional Randy Hrywkiw, owner RH Electric after receiving his award. “The response from the people of the community has just been great.” RH Electric was first born in 1983. A family owned and operated business it has grown over the years into the vibrant business it is today, serving all of Yorkton and area. “It took a lot of courage,” Hrywkiw says to get things off the ground. “We moved into Yorkton in 1983. I was on unemployment... I was looking for a job and facing reality. A person had to start up on their own
because there wasn’t anything to be had... “Here we are 30 years later with the whole family involved. It’s just phenomenal, there’s really no words to explain it.” Coming into the province at a time when people were exiting in search of bigger and better, meant persistence and perseverance were crucial to surviving and expanding. “They were hard times...,” says Hrywkiw adding, the community lent great support, teaching the importance of giving back, something RH Electric does often. Times are changing, the population is increasing but there are still challenges when it comes to being successful in the world of business. To would be entrepreneurs Hrywkiw says, “If they think they have what it takes... it’s not an eight to five job, you have to be very committed to what you are doing and sacrifice a lot... if you can see your way through that, go for it. “We’ve gone through some tough times, we’re going through a really good time right now...” This is what potential business people need to understand as they travel the road to success. Hrywkiw says he is humbled by the award he has received and he can’t not say enough to express his thanks to Yorkton and area residents for all their support over the
years. Over 450 people were in attendance for the 2014 Celebrate Success Business Awards evening held at St. Mary’s Cultural Centre. The recipients of the Awards are as follows: • Diversity Leadership – Tim Hortons • Work & Family Balance – Fedorowich Construction • Community Merit – Yail Harbor; Yorkton Skateboard Park; Yorkton Sno-Riders • New Business Venture – Mr. Mike’s Steakhouse Casual • Property Restoration – Logan Stevens •Community Involvement – Painted Hand Casino • Business Growth & Expansion – Royal Auto Group • Customer Service – Maple Communications • Young Entrepreneur – Dustin Nehring & Taylor Lang, NL Construction • Award of Excellence – Bailey’s Funeral Home & Cremation Care; LR Future Insurance & Investments; Penguin Refrigeration The Large and Small Business of the Year Awards were selected from all the nominations received. Receiving the Large Business of the Year Award was RH Electric while the Small Business of the Year Award went to Wagner’s Flooring.

Hi ho hi ho, it’s off to work we go! If you’re looking for work you are in the right place. Gone are the days when people were forced to vacate the province in search of greener pastures. The pastures are as green as they get right here at home. According to recently released statistics, Saskatchewan has the lowest unemployment rate in Canada for the 15th consecutive month. “Saskatchewan’s labour market remains strong, our unemployment rate remains low and we have plenty of hard working men and women taking advantage of the incredible opportunities,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Kevin Doherty says on behalf of Economy Minister Bill Boyd. “Today’s numbers are further proof that our economy remains strong.” Employment numbers reportedly reached a record high for the month of March with 522,000 people employed, and full-time employment a record high of 445,700. For 14 consecutive months, off-reserve Aboriginal employment has increased year-overyear, with 800 more people employed (1.9 per cent) in March 2014. Since March 2009, construction jobs are up 41 per cent (13,500 new jobs); professional, scientific and technical jobs increased by 36 per cent (7,500 new jobs); and transportation and warehouse jobs grew by 17 per cent (4,100 new jobs). “Job growth has increased yearover-year for 28 months in a row, our unemployment rates have remained low, and this is just the start of what looks like a great 2014 for Saskatchewan’s labour force.” So there we have it. If you are on the hunt for a job, they are out there for the taking. We’re on an upward spiral and let’s hope the momentum continues.
There are some things money shouldn’t buy They say money can’t buy you happiness but apparently it can buy you a get out of jail free card. And if you ask me, that’s just plain wrong. I feel a little sick after reading the story I just did. If the wealthy and elite can just fork over cash to get out of the unthinkable scott free, what kind of a society are we creating? There’s a rich man in the states (Delaware) – he is an apparent heir to the DuPont fortune who hasn’t had to work a day in his life yet owns two homes, one of which is a $1.8 million mansion – who is freely walking the streets after committing a crime that is the lowest of low and almost unimaginable. Robert Richards (the fifth) married his true love, had two children and one would think with all the wealth and opportunity they would ride off into the sunset to live happily ever after. Not so. Robert decided to rape his two young children. Repeatedly and for two years. His daughter was just three when this started, his son 19 months. It makes me sick to think about it. However it came about, what Richards was doing came to light and he’s had his day in court. When on trial he openly admitted to what he had been doing. He also said he promised to never do it again. Well that’s good enough.... yeesh...
His guilty plea did land him a sentence of eight years in prison BUT that’s not where things ended. The Superior Court Judge wound up overruling the findings and suspending the sentence. What!?! Judge Jan Jurden suddenly decided prison would be too Shannon Deveau harsh for Richards and that he “wouldn’t fare well.” Again I say WHAT!?! Prison, and being subject to the general population behind bars is EXACTLY what this man deserves, if not worse... Who CARES if he “fares well.” Unbelievable. Since the decision Richards’ wife (I hope EX or soon to be) has filed a lawsuit and rightly so. What kind of a judge would allow this to happen? Reportedly, Jurden has received multiple awards for strengthening public trust in the state’s court system – if she is handing down decisions like this, what else is she doing? Worse yet, what about the judges who are less noteworthy? No one can say for certain what exactly transpired here (and I’m not going to either), but it’s sure easy to assume there may have been a little cash exchanged. If the wealthy can climb above the law just because they have money, think about the world we are creating. Just because someone has money, does not mean they are better... and that’s quite obvious in this case. Wake up people!
The way I see it... Column
There should not be a measles outbreak in 2014 There is currently a measles outbreak in British Columbia. Two hundred cases have been confirmed in a community in the Fraser Valley. Last year, total, across Canada, there were 83 cases. In 2011, that number was a scant ten. What is going on? The answer is similar, there is a growing movement where parents will not vaccinate their children. Some will argue that vaccines are connected to autism, pointing to a study which has since been debunked, with both sample selection and a complete inability to replicate it leading it to be tossed out by the medical community. Others will cite religious regions, or their own beliefs on health. All of them are putting their kids, and the children of others, at risk. Until now, measles largely controlled in Canada, and disease rates have been kept extremely low ever since the 1990s, entirely because of vaccinations. That’s a good thing, because it’s a disease that is both extremely contagious and dangerous. Three hundred and thirty children die a day from the disease around the world, and there is a risk of death in one of three thousand cases in Canada. Of course, there’s no risk of death if you aren’t getting the disease at all, and if a kid is vaccinated, they’re going to be fine. The problem is that there is that movement of ill-
Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger informed parents that doesn’t trust conventional medical wisdom and has decided to reject all of it. They reject everything, which is almost noble in a way, but in the process they are putting their kids, and the children of others, at risk for serious lifechanging and potentially life-ending disease. Here’s the simple fact, vaccines have saved lives. That’s undeniable, over the years it has been the reason why smallpox, polio and now measles have gone from common, deadly ailments to things that exist largely in the past. There are millions of kids who will not know the danger of contracting measles, that’s a fact, and vaccines are the reason why.
Of course, there’s going to be people who point to complications arising from some vaccines, and there are certainly risks to any medical procedure. But the results are plain to see, there are simply diseases that no longer have an impact after the widespread adoption of vaccination. The problem is that since people are not vaccinating their kids, there’s a way for the diseases to be reintroduced. After all, it has never been easier to travel around the world, wide-spread air travel ensures that we can get to the furthest corner with little difficulty. Those far flung corners may still contend with these diseases, and they can and do spread it to other places, where there is no immunity. The only way to keep it from spreading is to ensure that everyone is vaccinated against it. I can appreciate an unwillingness to trust the medical community, even if I don’t share it. But in this case, we’re making decisions for people who are not old enough to make decisions on their own. Nobody wants to see their child sick, and perhaps we’ve forgotten the time when a lot of these childhood ailments ran rampant and actually killed kids. That could explain why vaccines, once embraced, are now rejected. It does not, however, justify that rejection, and vaccination is still important for kids.

Your letter of the Week
Here’s your bill, courtesy of Canada Help save Sask. harness racing
To the Editor:
Receiving a credit card bill that totalled $243,476 would no doubt be a shock for most Canadians. But if you add up all the liabilities of every Canadian government – federal, provincial, and local – that is in fact how much each taxpayer would owe of the $4.1 trillion total in direct debt and unfunded liabilities. This admittedly is a very large number and much bigger than what is usually talked about by both politicians and pundits alike. So let’s deconstruct it to gain a better understanding. All too often the public discourse about government liabilities focuses solely on money directly borrowed by governments – so-called “direct debt.” With the federal and most provincial governments returning to deficit spending in recent years and borrowing a lot of money, direct debt has re-emerged as an important issue. But direct debt is just the tip of the liability iceberg, representing less than one third of all government liabilities. As of 2011/12, the combined net direct debt of the federal, provincial, and local governments totalled $1.2 trillion. Direct debt alone translates into a $71,901 bill for every Canadian income taxpayer. Although not the largest component of total government liabilities, direct debt has important consequences. Governments, like families, have to pay interest on the money they borrow. And these payments aren’t insignificant. All levels of government combined to pay $62.3 billion in interest payments in 2011/12. That represents 10 per cent of total government revenue in the same year. In other words, for every dol-
lar collected by Canadian governments, 10 cents went to paying interest on direct debt. That’s money not used for programs that Canadians care about like healthcare, education, and social services or other important priorities like tax relief. Over time the borrowed money (including principal) must be paid back so direct debt is basically a deferred tax bill. That means future taxpayers – today’s young Canadians – will partly pay for current deficit spending. The burden on the next generation of taxpayers is much greater when we account for the unfunded liabilities of government programs. In addition to direct debt, Canadian governments have committed themselves to providing programs that are not fully funded. That is, they have promised to provide a host of programs which current tax rates leave unfunded. Three such programs with large unfunded liabilities are the Canada Pension Plan (CPP), Old Age Security (OAS), and Canada’s public healthcare system. When these programs were designed around a half century ago, the assumption was that demographic and economic trends of the time would continue. The idea was to tax a relatively large cohort of younger workers to pay for the benefits of a relatively small number of elderly. The demographic assumptions turned out to be false. In 1956, only 7.7 per cent of Canadians were over 65 years old. That proportion doubled to 15.3 per cent in 2013 and is expected to increase further to 25.4 per cent by 2061. Put simply, the aging of Canada’s population has resulted in large and growing unfunded liabilities.
The funding shortfall is estimated at $792.3 billion for the CPP, $494.4 billion for OAS, and $894.7 billion for medicare. Together the unfunded liabilities in Canada’s public pensions and healthcare programs total $2.2 trillion or $134,841 for each income taxpayer. These unfunded program obligations make up more than half of total government liabilities. And their sheer size calls into question the structure of taxing current workers to provide benefits for retirees. Ultimately, to maintain current levels of spending in the future, taxes will have to increase or benefits for other programs will have to be cut – or both. To its credit, the federal government recently announced changes to OAS benefits including a phasedin increase to the eligibility age from 65 to 67 starting in 2023. The trouble with this reform, however, is that it is too timid as a large unfunded liability remains. Consider that the current age for accessing OAS benefits would be 74 had the eligibility age increased in lock-step with life expectancy since 1966. Bolder reforms are needed not only for OAS but also the CPP and medicare to restructure programs in a way that accounts for demographic changes in Canada. Along with restructuring program obligations, governments must make balancing their budgets a more immediate priority. Otherwise, the annual deficits currently planned for the future will simply add to the existing stock of government liabilities. If action is not taken, young Canadians will be stuck carrying the bill. Charles Lammam, Troy Media Corp.
Racing stance must be reconsidered To the Editor: As a participant of standardbred racing I find appalling the unjust treatment of the standardbred industry by the Sask party which is unprecedented by any other government! I have been a owner, trainer, driver for more than 20 years and through those years I spend $250 on fuel, approximately $100 on hotels, $50-100 in restaurant per race day if there were 15 days of racing in Yorkton I alone spend $6,750$7,500 per year to race in Yorkton as I drive from Swift current every
week with only two horses! I also spend $60 per week on prepared feed from mid march pretraining to mid September in total About 24 weeks totalling $1,440 and between $2,000 and $4,000 on vet services, fuel, supplies and services to care for my horses the rest of the year in the premier’s home riding. You may not know but my horses do pretty well but with the purses in Saskatchewan I don’t make back this more than $10,000 that I spend per year and with a $200,000 government grant I put more than five per cent of that $200,000 back
into the Yorkton and Swift Current economies alone, as other participants must buy all their feed and pay more vet fees than I do. I believe it would be in the present government’s best interest to reconsider the harness racing grant as harness racing is a vital industry for participating cities and the agriculture industry in Saskatchewan. Kevin Siever, Tax payer, land owner, horse trainer, horse owner, Swift Current, SK.
Many thanks to our countless volunteers To the Editor: Throughout Canada and the USA, National Volunteer Week (April 6th to 12th this year) is a time to recognize and encourage those who have sought out ways to be fully engaged in their communities as volunteers. We can be inspired by them and their stories, and applaud the difference they make every day.
People are often surprised when they hear that the Sunrise Health Region has almost as many registered volunteers as staff. In 2013, health care volunteers provided 4600 hours of service throughout the region! Volunteer Resources is very proud of the excellence demonstrated in the many roles our volunteers play. Whether they are
rocking babies or transporting clients to medical appointments, welcoming patients or delivering Meals on Wheels, or making donated magazines available to patients in hospitals, volunteers make a difference – every day – in the lives of those we serve. Volunteer Appreciation Week is a formal reminder to do what we should be doing all year
long – saying “Thank You” to those who serve us and our workplaces and communities - for a different motivation than a paycheque. Volunteers are an important part of the team in many organizations and they will appreciate being recognized. Suzette Szumutku, Director Volunteer Resources, Sunrise Health Region.
Funding and assistance is greatly appreciated To the Editor: The Board of the New Horisons Senior Citizens Centre of Yorkton Inc. would like to express sincere thanks to a couple of granting agencies for their recent assistance in providing funds to help in renovating the local hall. We wish to express our appreciation to the federal govern-
ment for a grant of $15,874 to go towards a major renovation of the kitchen. This project is funded by the Government of Canada through the New Horizons for Seniors Program. We also with to express our appreciation to the Painted Hand Community Development Corporation for a grant in the amount of $1,900 to assist in the repainting of the lower level of the hall.
Through grants such as these and through the support of the community we hope to have the existing hall completely renovated and upgraded within the next 12 months. Vi Stefanuk, on behalf of the Board of New Horizons Senior Citizens of Yorkton Inc.
To the Editor: I am writing this letter as a concerned tax payer and horse trainer in Yorkton. I think the decision by the Saskatchewan Government was unfair and they have picked a winner and a loser. I have been going through articles that I have found and I am getting my information from them as well as when I was racing in Saskatchewan since 2000. I understand that the Government does not owe anyone anything but I do believe in fairness and that is something that isn’t being done here. I will be laying out the information and hope whomever is reading this will do something to help the industry I love. All I am asking is for fairness and hopefully someone will find a way to support harness racing and the Yorkton Community. In 2008, Minister Dan D’Autremont was congratulating the Harness Racing Industry on a Successful year. He also said that contributions are part of the government’s over all commitment to sustain a long term growth and that it played a role in Entertainment, and makes these sites an attractive place to live, work, visit. (As we all know Harness Racing gives the community of Yorkton Entertainment and attracts people from as far as Swift Current and Manitoba residents to watch racing, also trainers and drivers from Alberta). So if Minister D’Autremont was correct, then this new Minister is missing something. Looks like Harness Racing got the short end of the stick because we still get three to five hundred people every Friday night and they still come from out of province and they must need gas to get home and they must eat somewhere when they are here, and probably shop and so on But the Government is only doing Great things for the Thoroughbreds in Saskatoon. March 26, 2012... The Saskatchewan Government sent a letter stating that 2012 would be the last year for funding by the SLGA for Horse Racing (that word again, they should have said Harness Racing, who are they trying to kid). The Government is reviewing all their spending in relation to core priorities and that this support is not a priority, (the 200,000.00 to Harness isn’t but 800,000.00 to the Thoroughbred industry is a priority). Really, and believe me they are going to say that the money bet in Saskatchewan is not from tax payers and they had nothing to do with it, well they are right, it was bet in Saskatchewan but what they won’t say is it is the same money that the Harness and the Thoroughbred have been splitting for years, now the Thoroughbreds have it because the Government which cut 1.5 Million provincial racing grants gave them the sole right for off track betting. The Government talks about cuts and spending money properly, well look at this Sask Lotto gives to two Jamborees in Regina and Saskatoon $85,000.00 to 95,000.00 for a three and four day show and they are trying to save money. Really, and we are asking for $200,000.00 for a Four Month event that brings approximately one Million into the City of Yorkton and the Government can’t see that, they are going to say ya, that is under Lottos. They are right and it is and so we thought we are Entertainment, Heritage and a Sport, so we fit under the Lotto’s criteria too so we would try to go under Lottos as well. Three weeks later we were told they can’t help us because horse racing is under SLGA. Continued on Page 7.

Riding to put an end to MS By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer Jasper fire chief Greg Van Tigham wants to end Multiple Sclerosis, and he’s going to great lengths to do so. He’s riding from end to end on a fatbike on Highway 16, and made a stop in Yorkton on his journey from Masset Haida Gwaii to Winnipeg. The trip to Yorkton was a difficult one, as there was a headwind for the trip from Foam Lake and Van Tigham says he was averaging a much lower speed than usual. This is the second trip Van Tigham has made, last year going the length of Highway 93 to Wickenburg, Arizona. While this year’s trip is shorter, it’s also more difficult, because Van Tigham has switched to a fatbike, which is much heavier than the road bike used before, weighing in at close to 100 lbs. “I purposely picked this time of year and using the fatbike because I was trying to do this at a time when nobody else has been doing something like this. My main mission is to raise awareness and funds for the MS society, and I thought that by doing it in the winter and on a fatbike it would raise more awareness just by being the
only one on the road. When people see me on the road, most of them think I’m crazy, but it turns into a discussion and sometimes a donation.” The goal was not simply to bike from end to end, but to make it the most difficult bike journey he could. He explains that the choices he made, with a hard to use bike during cold weather, were inspired by people who had MS who visited his website. “They made comments through my journey and on my trip about things that happened to me, there were similarities between my experience on my bike trip and their daily life with MS. I developed in my hands, and I’m developing it again, losing feeling in my fingers, obviously fatigue, a lot of joint pain, a lot of similar conditions to people with MS. So this time I decided to maximize the difficulty level.” The larger bike was also chosen for safety reasons, as he can now drive off the road with much less danger. He says that the first time around he was blown off the road by a semi truck, and this time he can go off the road and keep moving. Van Tigham has been raising money for eight years ever since getting involved in the MS bike
tour with his department. He says that with knowing people with MS, including good friends who are now in a wheelchair, he thought it was important to get involved, and since then he’s made working with the MS society an increasing priority in his life. “All my spare time revolves around either volunteering or raising money for the MS society,” Van Tigham says. He says that given how little is known about the disease it’s often frustrating, especially as he sees people try theoretical cures and wind up in the same condition as they were before. He’s glad that the Canadian MS society does heavy research before recommending a treatment, and says he wants the money he raises each year to be used responsibly towards finding a cure. Last year over the year Van Tigham raised $96,488 total for the MS society, with about $6,500 coming from his first bike trip. He hopes to raise more this year, and this will be the first part of a yearlong fundraising effort. “This will hopefully be a big start, I’m hoping a lot of people pay attention.” Those interested in supporting Van Tigham can visit endms93. com.

Guy and Nadina inspire audiences and each other By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The duo of Guy and Nadina has been together since 2006, combining the sounds of bassoon, trumpet and piano in new and inventive ways. Guy Few and Nadina Mackie Jackson recently spoke to The News Review about their Prairie Debut tour, which includes Yorkton on the final leg. Jackson describes the tour as being stimulating thus far, playing all of
their favorite flashy, big pieces for bassoon, piano and brass, meeting people as they go through. “From my perspective, the recitals are really exciting, it’s kind of a show where you communicate with the audience the whole time and you develop and grow... it’s like running a marathon, it’s fun,” Jackson says. They duo got together because they were inspired by each other’s playing, after meeting through a chamber music
Guy and Nadina
performance in Montreal. Both artists had been inspired to contact the other to perform together, and Few says that’s when they knew they had to work together. “It became very clear that both of us were inspired by the other’s playing,” Few says. Both Few and Jackson admit that bassoon and trumpet are an unexpected combination, and there was only one classical piece that was written for a combination of the two instruments. As a result, they’ve commissioned several works to showcase the unusual mix of voices. Few and Jackson both agree that they began exploring the combination of sounds because of each other’s playing more than anything else, and they are constantly inspired by what the other artist is doing. “It’s not trumpet and bassoon, it’s Guy and Nadina, it’s our voices, and that can work for any combination of instruments,” Jackson says. Playing together has changed the way they perform, and Jackson says that when you’re playing with a trumpet you can’t be an assertive player, which has changed the way she approaches her own performance. “When you play with a trumpet player there’s a certain pride, because you really have to be yourself, you can’t hide,” Jackson says. Few says that the pro-
gram they’re presenting is a story-teller’s program, and he says they choose music that works with the stories they want to tell and the experience that they want audiences to go away with. The performers have a difficult job, with the bassoon being a complex instrument and Few switching between piano, a b-flat trumpet and a
that, in spite of being intimidated, Few had to try it. Jackson says you have to hear the bassoon to know it exists, and part of the reason she loves to tour is that it brings the instrument out to audiences who have never heard the instrument being played live before. Learning the instrument was a challenge, Jackson says, because there were
“It became very clear that both of us were inspired by the other’s playing... “It keeps me humble, it shows me that every single one of us has something that is difficult for us... It just makes me realize just what there is to do and also keeps me from getting a swelled head.” – Guy Few
piccolo trumpet, as well as a corno ba caccia, and on the encore playing trumpet and piano simultaneously. Few has been playing both instruments since he was a boy, and he says that having many options makes it possible to have a varied repertoire and make things exciting for themselves and audiences. Few says he found he could do both simultaneously after a composer made a piece that required it, and the piece was so amazing
no teachers in her school system in Northern B.C., and just getting an instrument was a challenge. She notes that it’s the first time that Prairie Debut has toured a bassoon, and so she’s excited about showing the instrument to new audience. “I heard it just by luck, because my band teacher played the tuba but had played the bassoon a little bit. I thought it was the most beautiful sound and such a strange looking instrument.”
Both Few and Jackson are teachers when they are not touring, and Jackson says that education and music are closely connected for her. “It’s really good for students to see how you actually make a living in music, and it really draws our best playing out of us to articulate it to people.” Few agrees that it’s essential to give back through education, and he feels the need to give back by teaching himself. His perspective has also been changed by events in his own life, having to re-learn how to play after going through brain surgeries, which required him to re-learn fine motor skills. He says it has made him a better teacher, and able to see mistakes and bad habits that others are making. “It keeps me humble, it shows me that every single one of us has something that is difficult for us... It just makes me realize just what there is to do and also keeps me from getting a swelled head,” Few says. Both are excited to come to Yorkton for the second-last show of the tour, and Few singles out particular praise for Margaret Cugnet and the work she does with Stars for Saskatchewan every year. Prairie Debut presents Guy and Nadina as part of the Stars for Saskatchewan series on April 14. Tickets are $30 and available at yorktonarts.ca.

Volunteer awards – celebrating our outstanding Community leaders are not always the people with the most prominent names. Some of our most effective leaders are individuals and organizations who serve others with a passion. Their acts of genuine care not only elevate those who benefit from them. They also trickle down to enrich entire communities. Do you know of (or are you a part of) great service done this year in your community by an individual, group, business or not-for-profit organization? If so, you have the opportunity to give something back. You can nominate them for a Prime Minister’s Volunteer Award. Nominations are open until May 9, 2014. The Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards recognize the enormous contributions volunteers, not-for-profit organizations and businesses make to their communities. Each year, a total of 17 awards are given at the regional and national level. Award recipients are recognized at a ceremony and can select an eligible not-for-profit organization to receive a grant for $5,000 (regional award) or $10,000 (national award). As individuals or groups, volunteers help their communities in many ways, from organizing activities for children with disabilities to fundraising for community projects. Similarly, many businesses help their communities by organizing fundraising events or offering their
Parliamentary Report Op-Ed Column by Garry Breitkreuz employees paid time away from work to volunteer – businesses play a key role in helping those who need it most. Not-for-profit organizations can also help build stronger communities. In Canada, 161,000 registered charities and not-for-profit organizations work to improve the lives of others. Saskatchewan people are among the most enthusiastic volunteers in Canada. In fact, some retired people, working alone or in groups or organizations, spend more hours making a difference in their community than they ever did working at a full-time job. They tell me their service fulfills them in a way they’ve never been fulfilled before.
But not all those who make a difference through serving others are retired. Many people, working in groups or organizations, use their knowledge and position in the working world to improve the lives of others. Last year, I had the privilege of awarding 60 people in the federal constituency of Yorkton-Melville with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. Many of them had a history of volunteerism that amazed me. The Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards could encourage them, or the organization with which they serve, to continue helping others, and at the same time provide a boost to their favourite cause. The nomination process for this significant award takes some time and effort. Nevertheless, I urge constituents to think about bringing forward the names of individuals, groups, businesses or organizations who make exceptional contributions to the well-being of others – simply for the joy of serving. Isn’t it time someone gave back to them? Remember, nominations must be completed before May 9th. You can read about the award categories, view a summary of past winners and submit a nomination today through the Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards website: www.pm.gc.ca/PMVA.

Perfecting gravy in time for your Easter dinner Have you ever had the misfortune of tasting gravy that was bland, watery, or starchy as dragging your tongue across a pile of raw flour? To say the least, it is not pleasant, and a far cry from serving its purpose: to enhance the food being served. To assist you in avoiding this mishap at your Easter dinner, let us discuss the basics in perfecting gravy. Gravies are considered sauces made with the pan drippings of either meat or poultry, and thus basics of sauce making are fundamental knowledge. The functions of sauces are to add flavour, moistness, richness and appearance to prepared foods. To achieve this we need three elements of the sauce or gravy: a liquid, a thickener, and flavour. I realize ham is also very popu-
lar, but for this Easter example, the focus will be on turkey gravy. The liquid for gravies is simply the juice from the poultry with additional broth and/or wine. The thickener will be a roux (pronounced ‘roo’), a cooked combination of equal weighed amounts of fat and flour. Additional flavours will be created from roasted vegetables, herbs, and seasonings. Always cook turkey on a rack inside the roaster as it prevents the bottom half of the turkey from boiling in its own juices. Below the rack should be a combination of a few bay leaves with rough chopped onion, celery, carrot and garlic. As the turkey cooks the liquid is needed for basting however excess juices should be removed occasionally (and reserved) to aid in
Chef Dez on Cooking by Gordon Desormeaux www.chefdez.com the caramelization of the vegetables. Once cooked, remove the turkey from the roasting pan, drain and reserve the remaining liquid and allow the fat and juices to separate. Add a bit of the fat back to the roasting pan along with some flour and cook on a mediumlow heat stovetop with the vegetables for a few minutes. This process will cook out the starchy raw flour taste and help in the final browning of the vegetables. It should be fairly
thick and pasty. Slowly deglaze the pan with some white wine or broth. Deglazing is the process of removing the browned bits of flavour from the pan and incorporating them into the sauce. Incorporate the reserved turkey juices (not the fat) and additional broth (or additional broth and white wine) gradually to avoid lumping. While heating through, continue to add enough broth/wine until you have reached the
Bring the harness racing back to Yorkton Con’t from Page 5. They should have said Thoroughbred racing is under SLGA, because Harness Racing isn’t under anyone. So that was the wrong answer. April 12, 2012 Article The Saskatchewan Government said they are cutting 1.5 million from annual funding effective March 2013, but where did they cut it because Saskatoon Thoroughbreds are still racing approximately $800,000.00, oh they cut out the Harness Racing in Yorkton $300,000.00. Something is wrong here. (Both breeds have always split the 10 per cent tax, 72 per cent Thoroughbred an 28 per cent Harness Racing that was in Saskatchewan, so how are the Thoroughbreds still racing if the Saskatchewan Government never had anything to do with it). This is the not fair part, if you can’t fund racing, shut it down, like Ralph Klein said in Alberta you race both breeds or we race none. Good for Ralph, a true politician. In the article that I am getting my information from, CEO Mark Regier is saying the first phase of negotiation for support for Saskatchewan Horse Racing is complete. (I think he misspelled a few words, he should have said Thoroughbred Racing). He isn’t interested in negotiation now that he has all the money. Joke it is, who gave it to him (Saskatchewan Government). They pulled the trigger on the Harness Racing. October 10, 2012 The article states that on March 31, 2013 the SLGA Minister Donna Harpauer said that the Government will no longer be taking the 10 per cent tax it currently collects on horse racing wagers, she says
eliminating the tax will allow the Province Horse Racing Industry (again she should have said Thoroughbreds) to keep a larger portion of revenues generated through wagers. No offence Donna but that 10 per cent tax dollar is and has been the same dollar the two breeds have been splitting for years. So that doesn’t work. All this saving and not taking tax was to play right into Saskatoon Marquis Downs and the Thoroughbreds This is where the Government picked a Winner and a Loser. For years there has been horse racing meaning two breeds. I say things different, when I say horse racing it contains two breeds They raced in Regina and Saskatoon; I am only speaking since I have been around since 2000. When Regina closed, harness racing had no home, but when they found one the Government was first to assist. It was in Craven, but racing wasn’t going so well, that’s where Yorkton jumped in and it has been successful for the seven years it has been going, always the money that has been bet in Saskatchewan has been split for years. There was a HMA (Home Market Area) that what ever was bet in Saskatchewan the money was divided. Marquis Downs always had a one year contract with the SLGA for the HMA since Regina closed, but when Horseman wanted to get in on the HMA the government signed a 3-year deal with Marquis Downs where the Thoroughbreds race and there was the winner Saskatoon Thoroughbreds and so instead of giving a little to the Harness Racing in Yorkton that was good for the Yorkton community, the Sask Party pulled the trigger instead. Now in the same article Mark Regier CEO of
Prairie Land Park is thanking the Government and why wouldn’t he. They have given everything to Saskatoon. Other Provinces The Saskatchewan Government is the only Government in Canada picking one breed over another, Alberta Government is backing the horse group that is building a new Racino (Race Track and Casino) for both breeds. BC Government will continue with both breeds and says Horse racing (both breeds) in BC is an important industry and will continue with both sectors. Ontario Government has made a 5-year 25 million deal with Rideau Carlton Raceway and has found another 100 million to make the total 500 million to the Ontario Horse Racing (both breeds). Nova Scotia Minister Cowell is stating he will work with horse racing and the dates are approved for April in Truro Nova Scotia (only one breed Harness Racing in the Maritimes). PEI Minister of Finance Wes Sheridon praises the investment made in Harness Racing in PEI and says the Government invested 28 million, he also says that for every dollar invested in the racing the Government gets $10.00 back. Saskatchewan Government gives everything to Thoroughbreds in Saskatoon and gives Harness Racing in Yorkton zero dollars. Thank you. Sask Party, I love living in Saskatchewan where everything is fair. From what I read in the paper about the budget, it’s only fair if you live in Regina or Saskatoon. Shawn Worthen, Yorkton, SK.
thickness that you want to achieve. Remember, the full thickening power of the roux will not take effect until the gravy reaches a full boil. The vegetable pieces and herbs can now be removed by the aid of a wire mesh strainer. Taste and season the gravy with salt and fresh cracked pepper before serving. Additional herbs such as thyme, sage, and oregano can be used but should be in minimum amounts to prevent from overpowering the gravy. Dried herbs should be added during the cooking process of the roux, as they will need re-hydration time to release their flavour. Fresh herbs are more delicate and should be added with the liquid, once the pan is deglazed, for optimal taste and fragrance. Whatever type of gravy or sauce you are making, remember one important rule: always create depth of flavour by adding a variety of complimenting tastes rather than just one bold main ingredient. For example a tomato sauce made only by reducing diced tomatoes will only taste like tomatoes. However, add wine, broth, onions, garlic, herbs, etc. to the cooking process and your sauce will have character. Dear Chef Dez: I know if my sauce or
gravy is too thick I just add more liquid, but what if it is too thin? How do I add more flour without it going lumpy or tasting starchy? Sharon G. Abbotsford, BC Dear Sharon: Mix equal amounts of flour with room temperature butter into a paste, and whisk in small amounts of this paste to your sauce while continuing to cook until the desired consistency is reached. The fat of the butter mixed with the flour will separate the starchy particles from each other and prevent lumping. The continued cooking will eliminate the starchy taste, and the butter will also add extra sheen to your sauce’s appearance. To Chefs, this paste is called a ‘beurre manié’ (pronounced burr mahnyay) in case you want to impress your friends and family! Chef Dez is a Food Columnist, Culinary Instructor & Cookbook Author.

Students learn the impact of impaired driving By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer Impaired driving is still a major cause of death and injury among the province’s young people, and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) wants to reach students and educate them on the danger. Students at Sacred Heart High School were given a presentation with the film Smashed, which shows stories about how impaired driving has affected people’s lives. Heather Duncan, a school field representative with MADD has been touring with the program. Duncan says that the goal is to give kids an emotional connection to what they see on screen, and give them a real example of what can happen if they make the wrong decision and either drive while impaired, or get into a car with an impaired driver. “It is going to remind them to make those smart decisions when they’re getting behind the wheel, or getting into a car with a friend, it’s going to remind them of the right choice to make.” Statistically, four people a day are
killed in Canada, and Duncan says that over half of collisions involving youth involve alcohol. She says that the youth are the main target for campaigns because of these statistics, and it’s important to connect to them before they make the mistake. MADD representatives tour around the province in a Kia Sedona, donated by Kia, which students are encouraged to sign in order to pledge that they will not drive impaired or ride with someone who is impaired. Duncan says that it’s a drivable statement, as it is very visible and has the signatures of students from every school a MADD representative visits. The ultimate goal is to prevent impaired driving, and Duncan believes that the variety of statements and situations in the video means that students can connect emotionally and will make an impact in their lives. “If one person watches that and makes a different choice than they would have made later on, that’s enough for me to keep doing my job, but I hear feedback from students and teachers that it had an impact.”
MADD recently gave students at Sacred Heart High School a presentation with Smashed, which illustrates the dangers of impaired driving. Pictured above, Duncan stands with the van used by MADD, signed by students who pledge to avoid impaired driving.
The farmer is trained, moves on and settles in Submitted by Kaare Askildt, former Preeceville area farmer in training. This one of a series on getting settled in Hazel Dell. Well, I’ll be… My second book is coming alive even before it is released! My twin brother sent me an email address to a woman who lives way up north in Norway, in fact past the Arctic Circle. Her name is Grete, and she found my brother after seeing a post on Facebook. We did not have any contact with her for over 60 years, and then she found us! I guess my brother and I may not be that easy to forget. At the age of about four or five, she was our first love. She lived in the house next door to us in Oslo where we grew up, and we played a lot together. Her mother made the best cookies and waffles, which made Grete more endearing to us. The old saying held very true at that tender age: the way to a man’s heart is through the stomach! Ah, the stomach! Yes indeed, our stomachs were surely tested in those early days of
exploration. Grete was one of the main reasons that Kjell and I started speaking Norwegian. Up to the age of four we were speaking our own twin language, but to hang with Grete we had to converse in Norwegian. We all had very curious minds and needed to find things out for ourselves. As a result if we didn’t know what the thing was that we had just found, we would eat it, or at least try to eat it. At one time the three of us were crawling around on our bellies in our yard, looking for interesting treasures. We came across a newt which my brother claimed, while Grete and I each grabbed an earthworm. We looked at each other with daring eyes, opened our mouths and proceeded to dine on our catch. Kjell’s stomach refused to digest the newt, so it survived as he threw up. The newt scampered away and hid. However, both Grete and I digested the earthworms with no problems at all. We stuck one end in our mouths and sucked it in like spaghetti while tilting our heads, and then
wiped the dirt off our mouths with our sleeves. The foregoing is just a preview; the rest is described in my second book. By the way, Grete told me that the stories about the twins next door, including the one where we ingested worms, have been told and retold many times to her children and grandchildren, and just recently at Grete’s 70th birthday party, her granddaughter mimed to the other guests about how grandma had let a worm enter her mouth. A good friend of mine was attending at the hospital recently, and while there he overheard an old man complaining of a terrible pain in his leg. “I am afraid it’s just old age,” said the doctor, “there is nothing we can do about it.” “That can’t be” fumed the old man, “you don’t know what you are doing.” “How can you possibly know that I am wrong?” countered the doctor. “Well it’s quite obvious,” the old man replied, “my other leg is fine, and it’s the exact same age!” Another old man comes in for his yearly

checkup, and my friend overheard the following c o n v e r s a t i o n . “Everything is fine”, said the doctor, “You’re doing OK for your age.” “For my age?” questioned the old man, “I’m only 70, do you think I’ll make it to 80? “Well” said the doctor, “do you drink alcohol or smoke cigars?” “No, never have” the old man replied. “Do you eat fatty meat or sweets?” “No,” said the old man, “I am very careful about what I eat.” “What about your recreational activities? Do you engage in thrilling behaviors like bungee jumping, scuba diving, speeding on a motorbike, sky diving, para sailing or skiing down a steep mountain side? “No,” said the old man taken aback, “I would never engage in
any dangerous activities of any kind!” “I notice from your chart that you are not married,” said the doctor, “do you chase after women?” “No never!” exclaimed the old man, “women are the curse of mankind!” “Well,” said the doctor, “then why in the world would you want to live to be 80? Then Lena came to have her yearly physical done. When the doctor remarked on her extraordinary ruddy complexion, Lena replied, “High blood pressure doctor. It comes from my family.” “On your mother’s side or on your father’s side?” the doctor inquired. “Neither one,” Lena replied. “It’s from my mother-in-law.” “Oh, come on now,” said the doctor. “How could your
mother-in-law give you high blood pressure?” Lena sighed, “You ought to meet her sometime doctor!” Kari dropped into the dentist’s office and asked the dentist how much he would charge for a tooth extraction. “A regular extraction is $250.00,” said the dentist. “That’s way too expensive!” said Kari, “you have to do it for less than that!” “I can cut the price in half, if we don’t use anesthetic,” the dentist replied. “Nope,” said Kari, “that’s still way too much!” “OK,” “I tell you what!” said the dentist, “if I just rip it out with a pair of plumber’s pliers, the price is only $50.00.” “That’s more like it,” Kari replied, “please book my husband Ole in for next Monday.”

Early Medicare in Yorkton I am not a history professor, nor am I a history student. I am simply a man who has a love of Canadian history. Canada’s history is a fascinating one. My mission is to not only educate, but to show everyone just how epic Canadian history truly is. Email: crwbaird@ gmail.com. Twitter: @ CraigBaird. Facebook: Canadian History Ehx. http://canadaehx.blogspot.ca
By Craig Baird Medicine has been an important part of any community, especially in the early days when hospitals were few and far between in the west, and it was up to area doctors to handle everything that was thrown at them over the course of a day’s work. Yorkton was no different and with people arriving in the area in the early 1880s, the closest hospital was a few hundred miles away. The need for a local doctor was paramount. That problem was solved in 1882 when Dr. J.D. Stevenson came to the area. Amazingly, he was only called upon once, in an entire year and that was to set a collarbone. Not surprisingly, when his year was up, he decided to leave for medical work elsewhere. It would be five more years before another doctor would come. This time, it was a Dr. Watson, but he only stayed for a short time as well before leaving. By 1900, the closest hospital was 16 miles to the southwest, but with a growing population, a local hospital was needed. As a result, on Jan. 25, 1901, town council held a meeting to discuss the need for a hospital in town. J.H. Nelson was asked to look into it and many meetings were held to bring about a hospital to the town. On June 25, council met to discuss constructing a hospital and the town found out it was eligible for a $3,000 grant from the Lady Minto Cottage Hospital Fund. The fund was accepted after a brief discussion from council. A three-acre site was bought on Tupper Avenue for $100 and construction began. Tenders were awarded and J.W. Christie was hired to build the hospital for $4,900. The need for a hospital became incredibly apparent that fall when typhoid fever broke out in town. On Sept. 24, a special meeting was held and council decided to rent out a house as an emergency hospital. Three men were appointed to manage the hospital; Mr. Simpson, Mr. Nelson and Mr. Pearson. Drs. Patrick and Cash were asked to prepare and circulate 200 circulars concerning typhoid fever. Patients who had a fever were admitted to the hospital and they were charged 90 cents per day to be there. The epidemic would last two and a half months, resulting in 20 cases. The town would spend $400 on the emergency hospital and in training. Only one person died. On April 19, 1902, five months before the hospital officially opened, an ordinance was passed to
name the hospital the Queen Victoria Cottage Hospital. Once again, the town was hit with an epidemic when measles broke out in May of 1902 and council once again began renting a house to serve as a quarantine. The house, owned by George A. Betts, was rented for $12 a month and would be used as a temporary hospital until Sept. 20, 1902. Council then donated $500 to help with the construction of the new hospital and get it up and running. On Oct. 21, 1902, the hospital officially opened. A two-storey building with a verandah, it contained 12 public ward beds and six private rooms. It also had a kitchen and an operating room.
The staff consisted of Matron Seager, a probationary nurse, a cook and Drs. Patrick, Cash, Irving and Head-Patrick. That same year, a nursing school, the Yorkton School of Nursing, began to provide on-the-job training for nurses. This was highly beneficial because of the high demand for trainees at the hospital. The first graduate of the school would be Miss Muirman in 1905, followed by Miss Height in 1910. The hospital would go through a number of major additions, expanding to the point that it changed its name to the Queen Victoria Hospital. In 1945, it became the Yorkton General Hospital.

Spring has officially arrived and with it, a new exhibit at pARTners gallery until the end of May! The solo exhibition Garden Immaculate by Lindsay Arnold, an artist from the community of North Portal, Saskatchewan, awaits you during regular hours at Yorkton Public Library’s community pARTners gallery. Sandra MacColl, with the library says Arnold creates water colour drawings that are quietly witty and slyly subversive. “The calming colours and unassuming characters draw the viewer in. As we move through the garden the viewer begins to notice the discord between tone and content. Something is amiss in this garden.” “I am inspired by the duality of human nature and the tension between the external side we show the world and the internal side we think is hidden,” says Arnold. “My allegorical drawings explore perceived expectations of self and the quest for perfection or at least the appearance thereof. Garden Immaculate
is about a woman in her role as caretaker of a fantastic garden: a symbol of the psyche and the qualities cultivated within it. We watch her, becoming privy to the bewildering, amusing and even sinister methods behind the garden’s beauty. The statues, plants and animals of the garden seem to rebel against their keeper, embodying the struggle to reconcile natural instincts, historical values and modern ideals. “The world portrayed in Garden Immaculate is pale, delicate, verging on sterile. The garden appears to be vast, but alas, there is no way in and no way out. M’Lady must forever dwell within the high hedge walls, fixed within as environment of her own creation. I wonder what her world would be like if she was no longer in control.” For more information on Garden Immaculate check OSAC’s website at: www.osac.ca The Garden Immaculate exhibit is on display at the Yorkton Public Library during regular library hours.

HIGHWAY 10 FINAL – Yorkton’s SJHL Semifinal victory over the Humboldt Broncos (top) sets up the first ever SJHL Final between the rival Yorkton Terriers and Melville Millionaires. Game One goes Friday.
Terriers advance to SJHL Final By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer When the new Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League playoff format was announced last year doing away with the South and North Conferences/Divisions and bringing in a three division regular season format where any two playoff teams can make the finals regardless of locale the most talked about potential dream SJHL Finals pairing with the new format was the Highway 10 rivalry between the Yorkton Terriers and Melville Millionaires. With the Terriers and Millionaires playing out a classic Sherwood Conference Final last year with Yorkton winning in six games on their way to the league title before the Mils said goodbye to many of the key contributors nobody expected a Highway 10 Canalta Cup Final in 2014 with the Mils planning to rebuild. In fact, many even pegged the Millionaires to finish did last in the newly formed Viterra Division thanks to losing all but four players from their 2012/13 roster. However after the Mils shocked everyone by finishing second in the Viterra before upsetting Kindersley and Battlefords to make it to the Canalta Cup Final and the defending champion Yorkton Terriers knocked off the Notre Dame Hounds and Humboldt Broncos in five games the stage has been set and the SJHL’s two biggest rivals will play in the league championship for the first time in history. Yorkton’s path was yet to be paved heading into the weekend as they headed into Game Four of their semifinal with the Broncos up just 2-1 and needing a second big road win in Humboldt to force an elimination game in Game Five back in Yorkton. Coming down from a 2-0 lead with three second period goals from Jordan Ross, Kailum Gervais and Riley Hunt helped force overtime after the game finished tied at 3-3 before Chase Norrish scored an OT winner 25 seconds into overtime to
put the Broncos on the brink of elimination heading back to Yorkton for Game Five. In Yorkton for Game Five there would be one more overtime as for the fourth game in the five game series extra hockey would be needed to settle the series. In a script you couldn’t even sell to Disney, it was Chase Norrish scoring an early overtime goal yet again to crush the hearts of the Broncos with a winner on a slapshot 1:38 into sudden death. This time it would send the Terriers into the Canalta Cup Finals for a second straight year and in front of nearly 2,000 fans at the Farrell Agencies Arena it would serve as a preview of things to come as the Yorkton fans sent the Terriers off with a standing ovation for reaching another league final. Postgame Norrish was ec-
static to have scored the winners to put his team to the final as after winning the league last year the already NCAA committed Norrish’s seven goals from the blueline have helped guide the team back to being four games away from the league title and a return to the Western Canada Cup. Still Norrish was quick to downplay his individual accomplishments. “I would be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to score two OT winners back to back and being on a scoring streak in the playoffs helps us win, but even if I wasn’t scoring I would be focused on doing whatever it takes for us to win,” said Norrish after Friday night’s win. Norrish’s two winners would put him in an usually unchartered statistical territory heading into the finals. The offensive defenseman
who is known for his offensive punch along with strong defensive play on the blueline as an undersized speedster is going into the Canalta Cup as the leader in playoff goals with seven, one ahead of Terriers teammate Brett Boehm who has six tallies to his name. The offensive accolades prove Norrish’s status as one of the best players in Junior A hockey and as a budding future NCAA D-I player, but other than bragging rights over his teammate Norrish says he isn’t focused on numbers. “I will probably bug Boehm about being one goal behind a defenseman but other than that I am really just trying to enjoy the moment and help the team go as far as we can go because I love the guys and love playing here.”

Jones, Olympic champs keep enjoying the ride By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer After winning the first Olympics Women’s Curling Gold medal since the 1998 Nagano Olympics, Jennifer Jones and her rink visited Yorkton on Monday on part of their tour of appearances through the country. Stopping by the Painted Hand Casino for a luncheon/supper speaking event and meet and greet, the Olympic champions took the time to continue to celebrate their moment of glory with the rest of the country during their Parkland stop. During a well attended event, Jones and the rest of the Olympic champion team of some of the top women’s curlers in the country remarked at how well they continue to be supported in the country even as the winter leads into summer and the postSochi honeymoon drags on. “We still feel like we just got home from Sochi,” said Jones on Monday. “From running into fans on the street to doing various events around the country, everyone seems to still be excited to come and say congrats on winning the Gold which shows just how special the bond between Canada and its Olympians can be which has been really special.” “It has been absolutely incredible and we have been overwhelmed by the support since we have got
home,” adds Jill Officer on the ride of returning home. “I think the Olympics just does something to Canadians and brings people together and we have come home to a lot of people who are emotional and passionate about the accomplishment and us bringing the Gold medal to Canada so it has been an amazing experience.” Because of that support Jones mentioned that her and the rest of the Women’s Curling team have made an effort to continue to attempt to
share their experiences with a country that has embraced their ride to the Olympics and beyond in a curling obsessed country. “You feel like when you take a step on the podium you feel like you are taking the step on the podium for the entire country so to come and to share the experience/medal with the rest of the country is an incredible honour so we try to share as much of that Olympic experience with the country as we can.” Dawn McEwan mentioned that the Olympics
have opened her up to a new level of fan experience. “To see so many people invested in us and our accomplishments on a national scale is a new level of support that you would never get to feel without being an Olympian so it is a special feeling to get to show the medal off and share in the moment with others.” That support as well as a decade plus drought at the Olympics for the women’s curling team led to lots of talk about pressure from the media heading into the Sochi
Olympics, however Jones says that the support of the fans in the country muffled any narratives and talking points about pressure inside of the team that eventually ended the drought. “Honestly we felt more support than anything,” says Jones. “People were talking about the pressure of Canada not winning at the Olympics for so long, but we were getting flooded with so many messages on social media or by mail that all we could really feel is the support of the country
JENNIFER JONES and the Women’s Olympic Curling Team made a visit at the Painted Hand Casino on Monday where they spent the day sharing their Olympic experience with fans from Yorkton and the surrounding area.
which motivated us to keep going forward and continue with the goals we set out before heading over to Russia.” “We went over there with the philosophy that we wanted to enjoy whatever the Olympics had to offer on and off the ice and we did while being so determined to step onto the podium which in the end really helped us achieve that goal in the end.” When asked about the differences of playing at home or all the way across the world in Sochi for Team Canada, Jones admitted that she enjoys the home ice advantage of the raucous Canadian support even if Sochi brought Olympic glory and had Canadian support as well. “They are different experiences, but when you are playing at home you know almost all of the support is for you and you alone, but with the way we were embraced the entire time we were in Sochi it almost felt like we were at home which really helped us,” said Jones. As for future plans as a team, Jones says that for now they are enjoying the rid but after winning the teams enjoys the chemistry they share. “For now we are all enjoying the moment and soaking up an amazing accomplishment, but we all love playing with each other so after waiting to make the next step we will have to see what happens,” closes Jones.
Terriers/Millionaires ready for spotlight in Canalta Cup Cont. from Page 12. Yorkton’s 4-1 series win over the Broncos did not come easy as the Terriers were forced into overtime in four of five games and needing to come back from two goals down in the lone regulation victory of the series. A rematch of the 2013 Final between two teams that have been the benchmarks of SJHL success over the last decade, Terriers head coach Trent Cassan had nothing but praise in the Broncos effort over a close series that surprisingly only went five games. “You have to give credit to Humboldt who really bounced back after some adversity during the regular season and gave everything they could to really push us during this series,” said Cassan after Friday’s win. “When you look at this series every game was decided by one goal and four of those five games went to overtime so there was a real possibility that if the breaks went Humboldt’s way that we could have been out in five games so you have to give a huge amount of respect for what they did in this series because they were equal to us every night it seemed.” At the same time as crediting the Broncos for their effort, Cassan had even more praise for the composure and clutch play his team provided in spades over the course of a semifinal where the Terriers recovered from a shock Game One loss in overtime at home to win
four straight games, many of which the Terriers were behind Humboldt on the scoreboard at one point of the game. “Our guys showed amazing ability to overcome adversity during this series that really impressed me because at times they easily could have got down on themselves in an up and down type of series where there were a lot of high pressure situations but they never did,” says Cassan. “In the playoffs you have to expect every game to be close and hard fought because everyone is laying it out on the line so to have that ability to outlast the opponent and find the plays you need here and there to win isa good sign for us.” Going into the Canalta Cup the Terriers will be labelled as the favourites, after all they won the Viterra Division and finished first in the league over the surprise Millionaires who had a more than respectable second place finish in the Viterra but had less luck in the season series with Yorkton. In the regular season series of the Highway 10 battle the Terriers held a distinctive edge, winning six out of eight games between the two. That isn’t something that Cassan will be hanging his hat on, even if it is a strong statistical advantage despite the fact the last time the two teams played was way back on February 8. “In sports momentum only exists in the moment and no matter how we
have played up until a certain point and how our opponents have played up until a certain point that all changes with the first turning point of the game that is being played because that is how quickly momentum can change so we are only going to be focused on what we can do to get better day by day,” says Cassan. Yorkton’s experience is another main talking point leading up to Game One, after all the Mils have just four players from last year’s team that lost to the Terriers in six games. Cassan knows it is an edge, but is also quick to remind that experience is only going to get you so far. “We are the more experienced team, but both teams have great players so whoever is going to win is going to have to put their best efforts into this series regardless of experience.”
With Yorkton and Melville playing in the league final for the first time ever thanks to the SJHL’s new playoff format there will also be added atmosphere in the league championship. Even though the TerriersMils Sherwood Conference Finals are always a hot draw, Friday’s Game One sold out early Tuesday and shows just how much the potential of bragging rights means to both cities. Especially with the Millionaires looking for their first SJHL title in franchise history the stakes and outside pressure from fans will remain high, but the Terriers head coach wants everyone to remind themselves to keep it all in perspective especially inside of his own locker room. The former Terrier player and assistant before becoming bench boss, Cassan knows how high tempers can flare in
the Highway 10 battle leading to the savvy coach downplaying the historic narrative. “The atmosphere is going to be wild and great for both cities who love their local teams which is great, but at the same time this is Junior hockey,” says Cassan. “I won’t be putting anymore pressure on these kids because they are still young men just becoming adults and they probably don’t need any more pressure than they are putting on themselves right now because they want to win regardless who they are playing so we are just keeping focused on taking it one step at a time.” Game One will go on Friday night in Yorkton
and will begin a 1-1-1-11-1-1 format as has been all SJHL Playoffs. Game One and Game Two will have an extremely short turnaround as Yorkton will host Friday’s game before travelling down the highway on Saturday night for Game Two. It also presents a chance to ride early momentum to earn a stranglehold of the series, whoever lands the first punch may just be on the fast track to league championship glory. Depending on which part of the Highway 10 you reside in you might have different hopes and dreams on which team that may be. Regardless of result, Yorkton and Melville are ready for history.

THE NEWS REVIEW - Thursday, April 10, 2014 - Page 15A
Ruttig’s Rants 2014 NHL Regular Season Awards The NHL regular season is coming to an end, and before the playoff matchups are set I figured it would be a good time to hand out my awards for some of the best/worst of the 2013/14 NHL season before all of the good stuff happens when the playoffs officially begin.
comes to being professional with the media, but he leads all blueliners with 54 assists and with Ottawa’s Erik Karlsson missing the playoffs thanks to a woeful Senators season there is no doubt Keith should be a Norris contender playing on the defending champion Blackhawks.
MVP: Sidney Crosby
Least Valuable Player: Dion Phaneuf
Pretty boring answer, but one that is painfully clear this year regardless of how the Penguins season winds up. Crosby’s 102 points gives him a massive gap between the next closest player in Ryan Getzlaf and furthermore the Penguins will once again be in contention to make a push in the Eastern Conference playoffs to a run in the Stanley Cup Finals. It is boring admitting that Crosby is head and shoulders above the rest of the league, but it is simply a fact. MVPOTSC (Most Valuable Player Other Than Sidney Crosby): Claude Giroux Early in the NHL season the Philadelphia Flyers were terrible, 1-7 to be exact and looking like they were heading for a franchise low in terms of success for the proud franchise. Enter Claude Giroux, who channelled frustration in losing and then frustration in getting snubbed by team Canada at the Olympics to put himself well inside the Top 10 in points as well as earning the Flyers a spot in the playoffs in the Metro Division with 41 wins through 79 games. The Flyers may not be the best team in the league nor will they realistically have a chance at winning the Stanley Cup, but they wouldn’t even be close to the playoffs without the world class efort that Giroux has given the team this season. Vezina: Carey Price I know you aren’t supposed to weigh Olympic performances on NHL awards, but this is my column and I will do what I wish. Price has unspectacular numbers when it comes to leading any statistical categories this season, but his performance in shutting down the Americans and Swedes in the Sochi games earns him my bid as top goalie in the world for the 2013/14 hockey calendar. He won’t win the Vezina, but if the Olympics were factored in he would be a definite contender in earning the Habs a spot in the playoffs while being Team Canada’s most valuable player at the Olympics. Norris: Keith
I have ripped Duncan Keith before for not being the world’s friendliest person when it
You could pick a lot of players for this award from the Toronto Maple Leafs roster as the golden child of Canada’s sports networks collapsed under a full 82 game schedule after making the playoffs last year, but Phaneuf is likely the player that deserves the glory the most. With only 31 points from the blueline and countless howlers in defense, Phaneuf continued to prove his status is more about reputation than actual results. Scoring more goals in the lockout shortened series and just three less points despite having 30 more games Phaneuf’s impact on the Leafs was more negative than positive and despite it not being entirely his fault that the Leafs missed the playoffs his contract and reputation demand far better. Rookie of the Year: Nathan MacKinnon Touted as the “Next Big Thing” before he could drive a car legally, there has always been pressure on Nathan MacKinnon to be the next “Sidney Crosby” as Crosby was pegged to be the next Wayne Gretzky like figure on the Canadian scene. MacKinnon has lived up to those expectations so far as after winning the Memorial Cup with the Halifax Mooseheads last season the young prodigy looked right at home in the NHL as playing a big role on the playoff bound Avalanche has proven his worth in the NHL. 62 points and 24 goals with three games left are solid rookie numbers and while it is a boring pick you would have to be crazy to suggest anyone else is the Rookie of the Year. Ondrej Palat of Tampa Bay is a potential dark horse with 48 points and a plus/minus of +30 on the season, but don’t expect the voters to get cute and go away from the obvious choice here.
Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig unexpectedly great results for a surprise Avalanche team that currently has six more wins than the defending champion Blackhawks. Worst Coach of the Year: John Tortorella Tortorella was supposed to come into Vancouver to right the ship after two disappointing first round exits for an aging Canucks team. Instead Torts came into Vancouver with his same routine of making everything about him and being hard to work with, playing up his “tough coach” routine on a team that
was poorly built by the GM and led to the destruction of a team that at one point not too long ago was a win away from the Stanley Cup. Now with the GM fired the Canucks are looking at a rebuild, something that wasn’t planned when the team gave him a long term deal to coach in Vancouver. Story of the Year: Olympics Could it be any other story? From Russia’s early exit in the quarterfinals to Finland, to the battles between the United States and Canada on the way to the Canadians first Olym-
pic Gold off of home ice since NHL players were allowed at the Olympics the mid-season international tournament continued to prove it is worthwhile to break every four years to let hockey be showcased on the world stage. With teams like Latvia and Slovenia giving the world’s best players runs for their money despite little NHL talent it also showed just how much the presence of hockey in the Olympics helps grow the global game. Hopefully when South Korea hosts the next Winter games the NHL continues to provide magical moments on the world stage. With the storyline and potential chance at a three-peat for Team Canada expect the NHL to go ahead and give the green light again for the Olympics even if the risk of injury makes some teams more than happy to be scrooges and attempt to get rid of the involvement in the Olympics. As of now there is no bigger non-Stanley
Cup achievement in hockey so it would be nice to keep it that way for the remaining future if possible. Worst Story of the Year: Vancouver Canucks From rumours of who wants out and who wants to stay, to anything in between the Vancouver Canucks turned into a soap opera. Always having a “West Coast Toronto” feel to how big the Canucks are regionally and in the West, the Canucks turned into the type of dysfunction that we are accustomed to seeing in the nation’s largest market. Trading both their elite goaltenders for pennies on the dollar, the team recently fired the GM about a year to late and don’t expect the drama to stop anytime soon. After being consitently in the playoffs for so long, a national profile and a very public fall from grace will be one of the bigger talking points come the offseason.

SJHL Finals Preview: Key matchups to watch By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
Brett Boehm vs. Kelvin Walz
With the Terriers and Millionaires looking to write another chapter in their storied rivalry between the Parkland’s two rival cities, here is a look at some of the key matchups that will define who takes the bragging rights in the SJHL Finals. Kale Thomson vs. Isaiah Plett Last year’s Sherwood Final saw the goaltending duel of Dawson MacAuley and Alex Wakaluk between the pipes as the future Regina Pats goaltender in MacAuley stepped up his game to take the win over the SJHL MVP in Wakaluk during the six game series. Now with MacAuley out of the picture in Yorkton and Wakaluk out of Melville the duel will be between 2013/14 SJHL Goaltender of the Year Kale Thomson and Millionaires goaltender Isaiah Plett as before the series the Terriers will be claiming they have the goaltending edge this season. Both in their last Junior eligible seasons as 1993 born players, Thomson held the edge in all statistical categories in the regular season. Thomson finished with a record of 31-11-3 with a GAA of 1.89 a SV% of .934 and a league record eight regular season shutouts to deservedly be named the league’s best goaltender after regaining his starting role from MacAuley from Day One this season after the younger Dawson left for the WHL this year. Meanwhile Plett had a solid year in coming from the Winnipeg Blues from the Manitoba Junior Hockey League to the Millionaires, earning 28 wins while racking up 13 regulation losses and four shootout defeats. His GAA was much higher than Thomson’s mark at 2.37 and after missing Game Five of the Millionaires series with Battlefords due to illness Melville fans will be hoping that head coach Jaime Fiesel isn’t hiding anything about his starting goaltender’s absence and that the starter Plett can go from Game One forward even if backup Richard Palmer earned Melville their series clinching win with Plett sitting out.
Unlike last year’s series between the Terriers and Mils where Melville had several Top 10 and Top 20 scoreres from the regular season including snipers Ian McNulty amongst others it will be Yorkton who has the elite goalscorer that Melville will have to find production to match as midseason trade pick up Brett Boehm gives Yorkton an added X-Factor in the series. Boehm finished second in scoring in the SJHL with 66 points, scoring 31 goals and providing 35 assists over the course of the season that was spent mostly in Yorkton after being acquired from Flin Flon. The SJHL’s 2012/13 rookie of the Year is off to play in the NCAA next season, but with six goals to his name already in the playoffs it appears he wants to leave the Saskatchewan Junior ranks with a bang. Melville’s best chance of matching Boehm’s production will be Kelvin Walz, a 20 goalscorer in the regular season who has made it his mission to set up the Mils during the playoffs despite a nine game goalscoring drought. Walz has a remarkable 11 assists and if he can find a way to get goals will be a huge part of Melville’s attempt to upset the defending champions in this Canalta Cup series.
tinued his homecoming with his hometown team since coming back to the SJHL from the Prince George Cougars a couple of seasons ago, naturally improving on a strong championship season last year with a breakout in his final Junior year. Thompson finished fourth in the league in scoring, doing most of his damage as a playmaking center with 38 assists to go along with 23 goals thanks to some breathtaking stickhandling ability at times. Thompson’s work on the penalty kill and one faceoffs would also be missed as he is a crucial first line player on the Yorkton PK, making the return of both players a huge narrative in this series. If one of the two can’t return to the lineup coaches Trent Cassan and Jamie Fiesel will both have to juggle their lines to find help elsewhere. Fans vs Fans Home ice is extremely important to both teams in this series as the Farrell Agencies Arena and Horizon Credit
Union Centre are two of the toughest barns to visit in the SJHL. Yorkton lost just six times at home all year while the Millionaires lost 11 of their game in their new building this year, both teams riding that strong play at home to first and second in their division respectively. In the playoffs both teams have just one home loss apiece as well, making defending their own backyard extremely important for both teams in this final. With games expected to be sold out every night and fans from both cities expected to travel and support their team the home ice advantage may be a wash, but don’t expect either city and their fanbases to not try to unnerve their opponents when they visit with civic pride on the line. Holding the home ice advantage, the Terriers could win the series by simply defending home ice. Don’t count on them to fall back on that, as whoever silences the crowd first on the road with a win may take this series.
Tayler Thompson vs. Colin Mospanchuk Next down the list in leading scorers on both the Terriers and Mils are two players who had to sit out of their teams respective semifinal celebrations after being sidelined due to injury for their Game Five wins. Melville tough guy and one of four returning Mils from last year’s team Colin Mospanchuk turned into an all around player this year, stepping up to score 20 goals and took on a captain’s role for the new look team this year before missing Game Five and will be needed back in the fold to provide his first hand experience on the Terriers should Melville look to win their first ever SJHL title. Meanwhile Tayler Thompson con-
HIGHWAY 10 bragging rights were won by the Terriers in the 2013 Playoffs on road ice thanks to a Game Six Yorkton win in Melville. With home ice advantage the Terriers will be looking to avoid a similar fate in this year’s Canalta Cup Final.
Yorkton Exhibition cancels harness racing for 2014 Submitted Article The Yorkton Exhibition will not be hosting Harness Races Friday evenings in 2014. The YEA has been trying to work with the Saskatchewan Government to find options for funding to save Harness Racing in Yorkton but have been unsuccessful. Following the announcement last year by SLGA,
Marquis Downs in Saskatoon, home of Thoroughbred Racing was awarded a three year contract for 100 per cent of provincial off-track betting. That left Yorkton and Harness racing with no tools to generate the needed funding to cover purse money and operating costs. The three year licence secured funding for Marquis Downs for the future. In past years
the 10% betting tax was shared by both breeds at approximately 72 per cent to Thoroughbred and 28 per cent to harness racing. This means there will no longer be Standard bred Harness Racing in Yorkton as well as Saskatchewan in 2014 and into the future. The Yorkton Exhibition has lost a large portion of t hei r S u m mer
Programing, horsemen have lost a place to race in Saskatchewan, hundreds of people have lost their Friday night entertainment and Yorkton has lost an estimated economic impact of 1 million dollars. The request involved an investment of $200,000 per year for the next 3 years. Within the 3 years the Standard bred Racing Industry must become
self-sufficient. In BC, Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario as in Saskatchewan, Thoroughbred racing generates the bulk of the gambling dollars but in all provinces but Saskatchewan they recognize this fact and the need to share profits in order to keep both types of racing viable. Each province has an agreement between the tracks
and breeds to stabilize the racing industry. Saskatchewan has not. If Harness Race supporters wish to help save racing in Saskatchewan they need to call their MLA and voice their concerns, we have done all we can to try and convince government to see the damage being done by supporting only Marquis Downs and Thoroughbred Racing in our province.
