New program to assist older workers Just because they are aging, doesn’t mean they don’t have plenty to offer. Workers are hard to come by for many employers in Saskatchewan’s strong economic climate. A labour market analysis by Sask Trends Monitor suggests increased workforce participation from people aged 55 and up may offer some relief to that stress. The Parkland College has announced it is doing its part to help out by participating in the Targeted Initiative for Older Workers (TIOW) program – a project sponsored by the Ministry of the Economy and cost-shared with the federal government.
The TIOW program offers assistance to people over 55 who are retired or unemployed. The projects help older workers get the skills they need to participate in the job market and aims to help employers meet their staffing requirements by hiring those workers. This fall in Kamsack, the Parkland College is offering the Mature Workers program. The three-month program begins September 9. Information sessions are scheduled at the college’s Kamsack location (Crowstand Centre, 241 2nd Street) on Aug. 14 and 15, 10 a.m. both days. Assessment interviews will follow in the afternoon.
“Mature workers are a valuable natural resource, and we know there are many open jobs on the market,” comments Gail Gorchynski, Essential Skills consultant with Parkland College. “With the right training and upgrading, older workers can play a pivotal role in meeting employers’ needs.” To participate in the program, the Ministry of the Economy mandates that older workers must be: • 55-64 years of age (50-54 and 64+ years of age may also be accepted); • retired or unemployed; • legally entitled to work in Canada, and; • lacking skills needed for
successful integration into new employment. Each TIOW project has its own activities. These may include vocational and/or learning assessments, peer mentoring, basic skills upgrading, skills training, work experience, preparation for self-employment, direct marketing to employers, resume and interview skills, and counselling. The Canadian population is rapidly getting older because of longer life expectancy, low birth rates, and the aging of the “baby boomers,” the bulk of whom are now in their early-to-mid 50s. The average age of retirement in Canada, at 62 years of age, is climbing as people stay in their
jobs longer or retire and start a different job. Over the last decade in Saskatchewan, employment among older workers has grown at about four times the province’s total employment rate. Older workers accounted for one in five people working in 2011. “There are many reasons why people re-enter the workforce at the usual retirement age, whether they need extra money or just want to stay connected to society and feel like they’re making a difference,” Gorchynski adds. “We encourage anyone meeting the Ministry’s criteria to join us at the information sessions on August 14 and 15.”

The yellow saw pictured above was on display at this year’s Threshermen’s Show. It is the only one of its kind in the world.
You ‘saw’ it at the Threshermen’s Show: unique collector By SHANNON DEVEAU N-R Writer It’s not everyday you run into a guy toting along over 100 chain saws but anyone venturing to this year’s Threshermen’s and Seniors’ Festival held over the weekend in Yorkton had the opportunity to do just that. Among the many displays was a collection of vintage chain saws owned by Pelly resident Kevin Krotenko. What started as a small interest has grown into a full blown hobby and there’s no stopping Krotenko now when it comes to adding to his stash. “I have a collection of saws from almost the get go of gas powered chain saws in Canada – from the very early 40s, to the mid 60s,” he says adding, he was a logger for 20 years and has long been familiar with chain saws. “One day I found an old one in my uncle’s shop and the next thing you know, one turned into 300.” Three hundred is his best estimate as to how many he has on hand and display at home. He brought with him to Yorkton just over 100 as trailer space limited the number with which could travel. It’s plenty of work to pack up heavy saws and to cart them around the countryside but it’s become a hobby Krotenko says he has a passion for and he has no intention of stopping now. “This is my first time displaying in Yorkton but I’ve been to a few other museum days events, antique steam shows... we actually travel all the way out to Wisconsin to a big steam show out there. “A lot of people really get a kick out of seeing them. Nobody gets to see anything like this and nobody really knows where chain saws come from... so this is now my hobby that’s kind of gone out of control – that’s what my wife says anyway,” he chuckles.
While he will collect any piece that’s old and unique, Krotenko says he’s particularly fond of IEL (Industrial Engineering Limited) saws that were built in Canada years ago. “I’ve almost got them all,” he says. Aside from these he points out another favorite, a diesel saw he owns that he says is one of only a handful available in Canada. He is also the proud owner of one saw that is the only one of it’s kind in the world. Built as a prototype that never made the final building stage, Krotenko found it two weeks ago in Winnipeg. “As far as the world is concerned, that saw was scrapped. But it turns out there was one out there and it’s right here.” Many of his saws are still in working order. Each, he says, was designed for different purposes and thus the wide variety of looks, shapes and sizes. “A lot of them I won’t waste my time collecting because they’re just run of the mill stuff. I collect the odd ball, weird stuff. The ones that don’t look like a chain saw are the ones I’m after... I’m kind a pre 1960s collector.” He guesses his oldest saw actually dates back to the 1920s. “It runs off of air. It was before gas engines were added to chain saws.” Distance is no barrier when it comes to adding to his collection either. “I think the farthest I’ve driven is Cincinatti, Ohio.” But he has connections that could take him further. Krotenko belongs to a club based in Sweden comprised of collectors like himself. “I think there are about 3,500 of us worldwide – and they all know me. I get emails all the time from people looking for different things... they’re all looking for something Canadian built...” It’s safe to say if he stumbles upon an interesting piece he will do his best to make it his own. “It’s a non-stop constant thing. There are 7,000 different models of saws in the world... and I’m a few thousand short,” he laughs.
PELLY RESIDENT Kevin Krotenko is one of 3,500 known chain saw collectors world wide. He had a large display of his unique pieces with him at this year’s Threshermen’s Show and Seniors’ Festival.

Partnering to “Drive Away Hunger” By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer Farm Credit Canada’s Drive Away Hunger campaign has been running for the past ten years. Since that time it has collected 9.2 million pounds of food and $760,000 in Canada. The organization recently held a barbecue and food drive at the Yorkton Co-op as part of the program. Toby Frisk, district director of Farm Credit Canada in Yorkton, says that the initiative is something which FCC is dedicated to across the country. “We’re raising funds and awareness for a great cause, and that is feeding the people in Canada who need to be fed, and there is a great need for that.” All of the food and money raised in Yorkton stays in the city, Frisk notes, with contributions going to the Salvation Army Food Bank and The Soup Haven. People could buy pre-assembled bags of food which is needed most, Frisk notes, and that would go to local people who are in need of that support, as well as cash donations or buying a hot dog and a drink. Frisk says that he believes this program is necessary to meet the large needs of the community. He notes that the Soup Haven feeds over 300 kids daily, and says that hearing numbers like that confirms that there is a great need to support these programs. The greater goal of events like this is right in the name, to drive away hunger, and Frisk says that the event is a small part of a much larger national goal. “It’s a national event that really drives awareness of the food bank system in Canada, the need and we do a lot of raise food and dollars for the cause.” In the fall, FCC will be doing a Drive Away Hunger tour, which takes a tractor and trailer to different locations to collect food and donations.

By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer Two years ago, fourteen year old Yutan Ironstand was killed in a collision at the corner of Smith Street and Gladstone. Since then, on the day of his death, his family has been holding a vigil to remember the boy. Debbie Delorme, Ironstand’s grandmother, says that even two years later it is still just as difficult as it was when they found out and his parents, Alicia and Robert, have difficulty talking about what happened. “I couldn’t believe it... When I answered the phone, it was the last thing I would ever expect, that my grandson was gone,” Delorme says. Continued on Page 6.

Hats off to Sask. heritage! While growth, change and advancements are all welcome and needed if we want to progress as a province, taking care of our heritage and the foundation that helped make us what we are today is also important. What would Saskatchewan look like if there were no reminders of where it all began? Hats off to the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation that works to continue to preserve our province’s heritage and history by working with individuals and communities. Recently the foundation announced its first grant adjudication for the 2013-14 fiscal year, allocating a total of $170,000 to 17 heritage conservation projects, including dollars for the old flour mill in Yorkton. “Projects supported through the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation benefit our province and our quality of life by promoting our past, educating future generations, and creating a sense of pride in our province’s rich history,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Kevin Doherty says. “By working together to preserve our cultural heritage, we also create tourism opportunities and help grow our province.” “Foundation grant programs compliment the efforts of communities, individuals and heritage property owners wishing to conserve and research our province’s heritage,” Foundation Chairperson Wesley Moore adds. “Historic places not only strengthen our communities, but link us with the past by sharing the visions and contributions of those who came before us.” It’s because of those dreams and perseverance that Saskatchewan has continued to grow into the vibrant province that we now proudly call home.
Don’t worry about it, we have you covered Now why doesn’t this surprise me? I seem to be picking on government a lot lately but boy have they made it easy with all the negative press making the headlines. The latest in the long line of misgivings... Apparently the head of Elections Canada is urging the federal government to “bring down the hammer” on Liberal candidates who to date have not repaid their campaign loans (from the 2006 election!) That’s seven years ago and we’re not talking $50 loans, we’re talking almost $400,000 worth! Reportedly one candidate (not to mention names ahem... but former MP Ken Dryden who is now an officer of the Order of Canada – whatever that means) owes a whopping $225,000!!! Another owes $97,800, another $69,000 and it even trickles down to the former leader of the Liberal Party, Stephane Dion, who has yet to pay back $7,500. He claims he wasn’t aware he owed the money but are we really to believe that? Short of declaring bankruptcy, in what reality could the rest of us Canadians get away with leaving outstanding debts in these amounts unsettled? We wouldn’t, end of story.
While there are laws in place that say the loans need to be repaid, according to our Chief Electoral Officer, Marc Mayrand, the system is far too lax and something needs to be done to change it. I would have to agree. failure to Shannon Deveau Supposedly repay can result in penalties upwards of $1,000 and three months in jail but obviously there must be some loopholes and plenty of leniency. As such, Mayrand is calling for a reform in the election law. “It is clear that the leadership contestants who continue to have unpaid debts from the Liberal Party of Canada’s 2006 leadership contest are not in compliance with the Canada Elections Act,” he says. “However, the Act, as currently drafted, does not provide a means by which these contestants can be sanctioned or compelled to repay their outstanding debts.” The $400,000 is minor in the grand scheme of things. Unpaid loans extend to hundreds of past candidates (many of whom now hold seats in parliament) and millions of dollars worth of unpaid debt. Why do we stand for this? It’s time for some clean up in Ottawa apparently it will be up to you and I to ensure it happens.
The way I see it... Column
Can we get more than celebrities on till three? Standing in line at the supermarket recently, I saw no less than five magazines doing a cover story on the death of actor and singer Cory Monteith. In fact, I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that one could not pick up a single publication in that line without getting some kind of feature on the young man, each one handled with a varying degree of respect. One might suggest that the sheer amount of coverage is an inherently bad thing, but that’s not what bothered me. Lots of people were fans of the young man, so naturally any publications that are focused on celebrity culture would do their own spin on the story. No, what the death of Monteith made obvious is that, when standing in line at the store, there is very little other than celebrity gossip on display. It sells, and it’s there because that’s what moves in a grocery store. It has likely been proven over many years that this celebrity obsession moves units. Most weeks, there are all sorts of different celebrity gossip stories, so nobody notices how we have a wide variety of magazines offering the same thing. It’s all a bunch of nonsense about the trials and tribulations of the rich and famous, and they sell well enough that this kind of magazine has slowly taken over the entirety of the checkout line. However, given changing demographics and the
Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger different way people consume information, why isn’t there a greater variety of publications at the checkout line? In a battle to get eyes and convince people to put a magazine on the conveyor, it’s the right time to start reconsidering exactly what makes sense on the checkout line. Celebrity gossip might be a reliable seller, but it’s not going to sell to everyone, and there are enough sources for it that the checkout line is going to be increasingly limited in the amount that it can actually support. It’s time to start thinking about what else people want to read, and if we can get publications with a bit more variation in the impulse section of the store.
I can’t claim to know what the best combination of ideas are, and that would vary at the various stores anyway. The solution is easy, just start experimenting with different magazines up by the counter, and see what gets a response. A magazine that has different content might draw eyes, and might become an impulse purchase, even for those who actively ignore the cavalcade of gossip that assaults their eyes. There is a risk it might not sell, but such an experiment would not take up too much real estate, so there would not be a substantial loss of profit. There’s a reward for taking that risk, so someone should do it. Since nobody wants to risk changing what works, I can’t anticipate a big change to the grocery line magazine selection. Apart from the death of Weekly World News and the introduction of Hello, the magazine most likely to say really nice things about the Queen, the selection at the checkout hasn’t changed for as long as I can remember. But people change, and the world is a different place than it was even 10 years ago. As a result, the maddening refusal to move beyond an assortment of magazines about famous lives seems frustratingly old fashioned. It’s time to start trying new content, and get new people impulse buying things at checkout time.

30,000 Canadians without homes Back to school:
To the Editor:
On any given night thousands of Canadians languish in ramshackle housing, line up at shelters or sleep in our streets and alleyways. This situation is not limited to our big cities: it is estimated that, on any given day, 30,000 Canadians are without homes. How can it be that in such a prosperous country we continue to struggle to house those most in need? How, too, can we have a contest in Winnipeg that asks folks to name and photograph the worst place to live? Not surprisingly, “the winners” were rooming houses located in the inner city. Sadly, this same contest could be replicated across the country with similar “winners” easily identified in every major Canadian city. Is there a simple solution to such poor quality housing? Perhaps we could start by shutting down as many of these godforsaken places as we can. But, as others have pointed out, closing rooming houses and other marginal forms of shelter – even the poorest quality ones – might cause more harm than good. Here’s why: For more than a decade the University of Winnipeg’s Institute of Urban Studies undertook several projects exploring rooming houses and single-room-occupancy hotels (SROs). What we found was an industry rife with contradiction, comprised of Samaritans and villains willing to help or exploit. In an initial estimate, we contended that there are as many as 10,000
people comprising the hidden homeless population of Winnipeg alone. As well, it is conservatively estimated that there are 50,000 Canadians who are part of the “hidden homeless” population on any given night. Many of these “hidden homeless” live in rooming houses, SROs or “sofa-surfed” from temporary place to place. How did Canada get here? We allowed our affordable housing stock to spiral downward in two fundamental ways. First, the federal government significantly diminished its role in the provision of and funding for affordable housing, off-loading the responsibility to the provinces, which have not been able to build enough units. Second, most provinces across the country allowed what remained of affordable housing to decline, leaving many to scramble for the worst of the worst, including rooming houses and SROs. To tackle the problem of poorquality housing, a practical solution would be for provinces to better enforce building codes, occupancy standards and the licensing of rooming houses and SROs, with the mandate to close the worst offenders. This swift action would effectively shut many down. However, in doing so we would have to realize that we would pay a hefty price for using this heavy-handed approach, as many of our “hidden homeless” would be plunged into crisis, ending up on the streets and putting increased pressure on our already burdened shelters.
Herein lays the paradox. While we know it is critical to have all Canadians living in safe, affordable housing, closing thousands of rooms would put massive pressure on an already strained system. Yet perhaps this course of action is exactly what is needed, since the excuse of having no alternatives is simply not good enough any longer. Perhaps such action would not only provoke a strong tri-level government reaction, but they would be forced to find alternatives, including building new affordable housing units and offering the right supports to keep people housed. In work by the At Home Chez Soi project over four years, we learned much about keeping people securely housed. The solution was never about simply providing housing; it was also about creating a strong network of individualized supports that included mental health, addictions, employment and quality of life. This ensured the right resources were made available to keep people stably housed. The Housing First approach used in the project provides strong evidence that supports along with housing go a long way to changing lives – and saving the system money in the long run. As we move forward, we have to realize that we need to invest in all of our citizens. We have to work hard to make available the right types of resources and services to help those in need find their own pathway to success. But success must include a safe and secure home. Jino Distasio, Troy Media Corp.
Three key budget claims prove to be false To the Editor: What sort of perverse mentality would lead the senior staff in any Prime Minister’s Office to believe that it’s “OK” for someone to cut a $90,000 cheque to a sitting legislator which had the effect of obstructing a forensic audit? As a police investigation enshrouds Mr. Harper’s PMO, the government’s retort is that Canadians really don’t care. They seem to think that voters will tolerate scorched-earth politics, ethical failures and corruption as long as they can claim some measure of economic success. But that strategy of trying to mask the PMO/Duffy scandal is beginning to attract more critical scrutiny. Ignoring the fact that, in less than three years, Mr. Harper squandered a decade of balanced budgets and multibillion-dollar annual surpluses, thus putting
this country back into deficit again BEFORE (not because of) the 2008 recession, and ignoring the fact that his government has never once met its fiscal targets, and ignoring the fact that they’ve presided over repeated boondoggles like the F-35 fighter-jet fiasco – what evidence is there of economic competence to serve as their mask? Take the last budget as an example. It was built on three basic claims which have all proven false: Claim One: The Harper government doesn’t increase taxes... but that’s not true. In fact they’ve increased the tax burden on Canadians in EACH of their last four budgets. In Budget 2013, the Conservatives are imposing $75-million more per-year in new taxes on Credit Unions, $550-million more in new taxes on small business owners, $333-million more in new tariff-
taxes on consumers, and $600-million more in new payroll taxes on jobs. That adds up to Conservative tax hikes of more than $1.5-billion. Claim Two: The Harper government is making a big new investment in community infrastructure... but again, that’s not true. They’ve extended funding first established by previous Liberals governments (like the full GST rebate and the gas tax transfer to municipalities), and they’ve made an ideological commitment to so-called “P3” projects, but direct federal support for infrastructure is actually being cut. Last year, that direct funding stood at $1.7-billion. This year, it has been chopped down to $200-million for the whole country. And it will stay at that low level for at least another year after that. Any hypothetical replenishment will occur,
at best, only five or 10 years down the road. Claim Three: The Harper government is investing more in job training... also untrue. This year’s budget barely maintains federal funding for job training at levels that existed back in 2007. There’s not a penny of new federal investment. Instead, Mr. Harper is trying to force provinces to cancel some of their current training programs so he can claw that money back into federal coffers and then recycle it with new strings attached. It’s a total shell-game. So on taxes, infrastructure and jobs – the three pillars of the last Conservative budget – the government’s economic claims are just as false as their talking points about the PMO’s dealing with Mike Duffy. Ralph Goodale, MP, Wascana, SK.
Harper and the Conservative cone of silence To the Editor: Having trouble telling fact from fiction in the Senate expenses scandal? There’s a reason for that. Since the news broke that Stephen Harper’s right-hand man cut a $90,000 cheque to cover-up the potentially fraudulent expenses of Conservative Senator Mike Duffy – a potentially criminal action – Mr. Harper has consistently misled Canadians about what really happened. He claimed his Chief of Staff, Nigel Wright, acted alone and no one
else knew. In fact, court documents reveal four members of Mr. Harper’s inner circle knew. He claimed there was no email recording the terms of the deal. In fact, his office now admits there is one. He claimed his personal legal counsel was not involved. In fact, RCMP documents reveal that he was involved. Mr. Harper claimed the first Senate expenses report reflected the auditors’ findings. In fact, we now know it was whitewashed to go easy on Duffy.
And that’s just what is public. The Conservatives have been accused of stonewalling the RCMP investigation into the whole tawdry affair. Instead of giving us the straight goods, Mr. Harper has clamped down and put on a cone of silence. Canadians expect better; they expect honest answers to serious questions about the potentially criminal behaviour at the heart of their government. Marc Garneau, MP Liberal Party of Canada.
operation eyes To the Editor: September is approaching and all over the world, children will troop back to school. It’s an exciting time of year for children. Bright eyes ready to read and write – it’s great to be a kid. But what if the kids have no school? Operation Eyesight works with rural people in Kenya and Zambia and we know they are just as committed to education as anybody else. But we learned something interesting: when a village has no reliable source of water, teachers often won’t work there. It makes sense when you think about it. The teacher is responsible to get water for the students, and that water source may be many kilometres away. At Operation Eyesight, we know that the conditions that contribute to eye health have a positive effect on other aspects of life. One of those conditions is clean water – lots of it, nearby. Zambia is a country that often struggles to get enough water. But in the Maamba Sinazongwe District, there is water and a school and teachers – wow! In 2008, Operation Eyesight established a well to stop the threat of trachoma in the district, and other things started happening. The Mweela Basic School opened in 2009. It has over 250 students in grades one through eight, and many of them have a long walk to get there. But they know when they arrive that there’s plenty of water for washing and drinking. And food. The school has a garden with okra, beans and maize, some of which is also sold to buy school supplies. The healthy crops are watered from that same well. To all our donors who helped make that water source a reality, here are a few words from Gillian Ngandu, the school’s head teacher: “Thank you very much – we like the water very much. We find it has helped the children very much. The water is clear and clean. It makes a big difference for the girl children because they like to wash, but the boys still have to be encouraged,” she says, smiling. “We can do anything with water. Other schools envy us.” If you would you like to learn more about Canada-based Operation Eyesight’s water projects in Africa visit www.operationeyesight.com/programs. Together, with the support of thousands of Canadians and people around the world, we are winning the fight against avoidable blindness – for all the world to see.

Gov’t already improving support for veterans Canada’s brave men and women in uniform, who pay the ultimate sacrifice in defence of their country, deserve to be laid to rest respectfully with support from the federal government. That’s why a funeral and burial program is provided to the families of indigent Veterans through the Last Post Fund. Earlier this year, the Liberal Opposition member for Random – Burin – St. George’s, put forward a motion in the House, M-422 that would have made changes to the Last Post Fund. Motion M-422 was defeated in the House of Commons – but not because of Government lack of desire to support our veterans. The motion was rejected simply because the Last Post Fund had, less than one month earlier, already been addressed and substantially improved in Economic Action Plan 2013. In order to better support our Veterans, the government voted to double the coverage of funerals from $3,600 to $7,376, a decision

Crosswalk winners announced
By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer
by Garry Breitkreuz made after the Minister of Veterans Affairs had listened to many Veterans groups on this issue. The Liberals voted against that plan, implying that due to outdated eligibility criteria, some Veterans are left without a dignified funeral. What they are incorrectly referring to is a ‘means test’ that is applied to determine which Veterans are in need of assistance from the fund. The previous Liberal government itself established the present means test. As Veteran, and Member of Parliament for Durham, Erin O’Toole, explained, “The Last Post Fund was established decades ago to help the families of indigent Veterans... they do not expect this special fund to apply to all Veterans. This was
not the objective of the Last Post Fund funeral and burial program.” But the Last Post Fund is much more than just the burial program. It manages the National Field of Honour in PointeClaire, Quebec, a national historic site. It also runs the unmarked grave program to mark the places where some of our fallen have been laid to rest. Motion M-422 was defeated in the House of Commons, not because of Government lack of desire to support our veterans, but because we had already voted to improve the Last Post Fund in Economic Action Plan 2013. Sadly, the Liberals have voted against the measures in Economic Action Plan 2013 at every opportunity.

Most innovative was an optical illusion featuring Peanuts characters, and most eye catching went to the tango steps design, which had footprints in the crosswalk. Stein says the entries from Colombia and the Girl Guides generated a lot of pride for both, with many messages expressing their excitement for being recognized for their ideas. With the Girl Guides entry, it received the safety message award because it was about guides guiding people across the street. They were second place in the overall votes. “The motivator for the whole thing was safety, so I was really pleased to see the result,” adds Stein. Now, the winning designs need to go through the testing process, in order to see what can be practical for
Liquor regulations see more change Another 37 of the province’s 77 updated liquor regulations announced last fall are now in effect as a result of legislative and regulatory changes made by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA). “Our government is committed to cutting
red tape where possible,” Minister responsible for SLGA Donna Harpauer said. “These latest changes now in effect will benefit businesses involved in the sale and service of alcohol as well as their customers.” Among the changes now in effect:
• Salons and spas will be eligible to apply for a permit to sell and serve alcohol to customers purchasing a salon/ spa service; • Liquor permitted restaurants will be able to offer Bring Your Own Wine (BYOW) service to customers; • U Brew/U Vin op-
Yutan Ironstand remembered Con’t from Page 3. “I have to listen to my daughter cry, and that’s hard for me too. She cries all the time, and says ‘mom, I want Yutan to come home,’ and I say me too, but we can’t bring him back, and we have to honor his memory all the time, because he was such a beautiful person.” Delorme notes that Ironstand has a legacy in his school, St. Mary’s, with a memorial award to students with high academic achievement. She says that this reflects her grandson, who she describes as an intelligent and beautiful person. “He was such a good kid, he was smart, he was brilliant, always joking at

laughing... That’s why we feel so emotional about this, because why did it have to happen to him?” The driver accused in the incident has been charged and will appear in court on August 15. Delorme says that the family has been frustrated by the slow process of the courts, and wants to see justice happen in the case. “We’re dealing with it the best that we can. We’re frustrated that the trial has taken so long... We’re sticking together,
and people ask every day.” The family says their message to people in the community is to cherish their children, because you never know what could happen. Delorme says she makes a point of keeping close to her seven children and twenty-seven grandchildren. “Love them, kiss them every day. That’s what my grandfather taught me, and I taught that to my kids and my grandkids.”
erators will enjoy reduced record keeping requirements and will also have the option to offer delivery service to their customers; and • Permittees will be allowed to open at 9:30 a.m. on Sundays and holidays consistent with other days of the week. In November 2012, SLGA announced 77 changes to the province’s liquor regulations. The first 39 changes were implemented in May as a result of policy changes made internally by SLGA. These latest 37 changes required legislative and regulatory amendments. The final change, which will allow striptease and wet clothing contests at liquor permitted establishments, will take effect Jan. 1, 2014, to give municipalities time to enact related bylaws, if they so wish.

the city. With the first run of designs, there were many alternatives that didn’t make it due to various problems replicating them on city streets, and that’s the process which the winning designs must face. Stein notes that the Colombian zebra is a bit too complicated to be a viable option, since it takes up most of the street. The optical illusion design also has several issues. He anticipates that the Girl Guides entry will be the most likely to find its way onto city streets, since it’s a design that’s easy to replicate and it carries with it a safety message. “We had lots of ideas when we did this in the spring, but hardly any of them worked when it came to being crosswalks the city could paint. Between now and September, we have to look at whether any of these designs will actually work,” Stein says. The tango steps will not be used on a crosswalk, out of concern that people would stop while walking across the street, but it will be put in place on the sidewalk in front of the gallery, where there would not be any safety concerns. Stein says that by putting it in front of the gallery instead of on the roads, people can stop and remain safe. “We’ll do it as art, because we’re an art gallery, but safety has to be first and foremost.”

THE NEWS REVIEW - Thursday, August 8, 2013 - Page 7A
We don’t need a degree to be a good neighbour It does not matter where we live – we will have neighbours; in a condo, a house, an apartment or on the farm. We all have neighbours. Living side by side with a neighbour can have its challenges, having good neighbours can also be a great blessing. Living with neighbours will require both give and take for both parties. Being a good neighbour means we will not do anything to annoy our neighbour. No loud parties, not mowing the lawn at 6:30 AM; we won’t yell at their children, we mind our own business, we don’t ask personal questions, just to name only a few. If we treat our neighbours the way we would like to be treated and we will never have problems with any of our neighbours. We are to love our neighbour as ourselves
– that is the golden rule isn’t it? How can we accomplish this rule in today’s society? I do admit it can be challenging at times, but often we make a situation more difficult than it really is. My grandfather used to say, “Fences make for good neighbours.” There is a lot of truth to that statement. We had a lot of fence on the farm. Each quarter of land at one time had a fence. The fencing was done, not for good neighbour relations, but to keep our cattle and sheep in place. In later years, the cattle were gone, but the fence row, which was now grown in amongst the trees, remained. I recall a new neighbour bought a quarter of land next to us and he asked me if he could take down the broken fence and tree line and

FROM MORNING UNTIL EVENING... Column by Margaret Anne Yost break up the land. My response to him was, “Maybe leave the fence line as it is – fences make for good neighbours.” Grandfather’s saying I think rings true to me this very day. Today we see many yards in the rural area and also within the city limits. Most of these fences today are not to keep animals on the right side of the property line- they are for good neighbour relations. Everyone wants their own privacy. We want to be able to go into our back yard and have no
one see us or bother us. We too have a back yard that is fenced, but our fence is to keep the grandchildren and dog on the right side. We never sit out in the back yard- we sit on the front deck and watch the people as they go by. As people walk by, often a conversation will begin with a complete stranger. When our new neighbours moved in, we went over to introduce ourselves. I think this is the responsibility of the neighbour who has been there the longest.
Welcome new comers into the community and help them to get to know others around the neighbourhood. Smile and wave as a neighbour goes by- Most people respond to a smile and a wave. They may or may not smile or wave back, but don’t let that stop us from showing friendly, neighbourly actions. Our neighbours have been a blessing to us. We enjoy their company and their friendship. We share our phone numbers and we wish them all the best as they become part of our community. Nothing brings neighbours together like a block party, or BBQ. Try it in your neighbourhood and watch the adults and children mingle and enjoy the evening. Let’s befriend our neighbours and enjoy their company. Neighbours often are
closer than family. Our families may be hundreds of miles away, but the neighbour is next door and will be our first responder in time of crisis. “A good neighbor is a fellow who smiles at you over the back fence, but doesn’t climb over it.” – Arthur Baer Margaret Anne Yost nursed for 35 years. Returning back to school I completed classes from the Red River College in the areas of Gerontology, Bereavement, Death and Dying. For twelve years I worked in bereavement support at a funeral home. At present I am employed as an Interim Parish Worker at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Melville, Sask. I also enjoy my role as homemaker, wife, mother and grandmother.

Yanks one game away from perfection in SESBL final By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer Given the regular season dominance of the Yorkton Yankees and the Canora Supers in the South East Senior Baseball League with both clubs posting near perfect records, it was a slight surprise
to see the Langenburg Indians as the Yankees SESBL Championship opponents. After all the Canora Supers finished 11-3 and the Yorkton Yankees finished undefeated at 13-0-1 making the two ballclubs the favorites heading into the best of three quarterfinals and semifinals
with byes into the SESBL final four. The Indians however had other ideas, dispatching the Supers in three games in what was a back and forth series that went all the way to extra innings in the deciding Game Three. After winning Game One
12-1 the Indians would lose Game Two of the series at home 3-2 in extra innings to send the series back to Canora for a deciding game that would see the winner play Yorkton who already swept the Russell Bulls. Cont. on Page 16.

The “No Fun League” tries to ban celebrations again Ruttig’s rants
Michael Irvin’s point after a first down. Michael Strahan and the New York Giants “3 pointer” sack dance of the late 00’s. Spinning the football. The “Mile High Salute.” Jacoby Jones’ touchdown dance after scoring in this year’s Super Bowl. All of these things are about to become extinct under the NFL’s new crackdown on “taunting” and celebrations to take effect in 2013. In fact, all of the following things were added to the NFL’s list of unacceptable behaviors after the play heading into the start of regular preseason play on Friday: Sack Dances Home run swing Incredible Hulk Spiking/spinning the ball Throwing the ball Pointing (hand or the ball) Verbal taunts Military salute Standing over opponent Dancing
Of those ten actions, would any one of those cause you to turn off an NFL game? In fact are any of those ten actions worse than the fact that prior to the celebration, one of the 22 players on the field may or may not have suffered significant brain trauma? Something that, in fact, would cause many to turn off their televisions. Yet for the umpteenth time Roger Goodell and the NFL have decided to do what every league administration before them has done and has decided to crack down on celebrations to deal with the bad PR the league has been getting. Because the problems the league are facing can’t possibly be league-caused, it must be the celebrations. As if Alfred Morris doing a home run swing and saluting the crowd is going to cause Joe Sixpack to
Column Chase Ruttig turn off Sunday Night Football. It is different when it is foul language or unsportsmanlike play, but the actions the NFL is planning to crackdown on have been a part of football for years now; something that you will see glimpses of in all levels of football as players celebrate a big play. After all, there is a reason why NCAA players and high school players still celebrate even if those celebrations will cost their team yardage and potentially points on the board. It is because you can’t bottle up the emotion of an athlete. These rule changes attempt to take away something that football players and fans have grown accustomed to thanks to the league; pointing after a first down dates back to Michael Irvin in the 80’s and 90’s and likely dates back further to that. The military salute started in Denver where military families largely reside and has spread across the league, as has spiking the football. Dancing is also a cultural celebration that transcends all sport. You wouldn’t penalize Usain Bolt for dancing after winning another 100m or 200m sprint and you surely wouldn’t call out a soccer player for dancing in celebration of a huge goal, so why is it any different for NFL players to dance in celebration, especially if it is
a part of their personality? The answer is because the NFL doesn’t want any personality in its league. Personality leads to bad personalities, and bad personalties lead to things like the Arron Hernandez saga and the Pouncey brothers wearing “Free Hernandez” snapbacks. Bad personalties lead to the Riley Cooper incident. So rather than allow personality into a game that players risk their livelihood for all while under the anonymity of being behind a facemask, the NFL would sooner crack down and see one of the more entertaining aspects be removed from the game. The NFL refuses to admit that bad people can also be good at sports, and that unsportsmanlike players exist. In doing so it has devalued its product in the name of trying to reach an audience it will never attract, doing the same thing the NBA fails again and again at doing. Trying to change the minds of people who are always going to believe the “black athlete” stereotype and have left their passion for the game a long time ago once “fundamentals” left the game. Those type of bigoted people are never coming back and will always harp on those stereotypes on their soapboxes for as long as someone will listen, so why cater to them? People who don’t like celebrating and athletes appearing in the arrest pages will always prefer college sports (or no sports at all) over the NFL or the NBA. They will always tell you that college athletics “has more passion” that the players “care more” and point out prima donas like Chad Johnson, Randy Moss and Terrell Owens as the stereotypical NFL player who celebrates too much and demands the spotlight. In turn, these players and their bad reputations are allowing the league to believe that all celebrating will be negatively received. 10.1 million people tuned into see the NFL’s preseason opener on Sunday, clearly no one is offended. Keep the celebrating in football. Keep the passion. Keep the fun.
Stamps-Riders rematch has early West Division importance By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer It is well known that the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Calgary Stampeders are bitter enemies, their meetings something fans of both sides circle on their calendar and the rest of the league eagerly anticipates what turn out to be some of the best games of the season, fueled by mutual dislike for each other. “We don’t like Calgary,’’ the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ middle linebacker said to the media after Monday’s practice. “They don’t like us. We don’t like them. It’s no secret. It’s a rivalry.
“Since I’ve been here, and even before I was here, that’s a team you want to beat. Regardless of what their record is or your record is, you know it’s going to be a dogfight. They’re a physical team. They’re a good team. They’re just like us. It’s going to be a battle.’’ That battle will be amplified by the fact that the Riders are coming into Friday night in Calgary undefeated, already having scored the first bragging rights over the Stampeders at Taylor Field earlier this season. The Riders will be looking to reprise that meeting, a game where they dominated defensively and on the run to
earn a 36-21 victory. A return of Darian Durant from a foot injury will be crucial for the Riders as Durant sat out the Riders past game against Hamilton prior to the bye week. Calgary starter Drew Tate seems to be out for Friday night’s clash, meaning Kevin Glenn will get the start for the Stampeders. The game is a big one not just because the Riders are trying to preserve an undefeated record, but because they can get an early jump on the playoff bye week with a win. Calgary is the only team close in the standings at 4-1 with their only loss to SK. If the
Riders can win in Calgary, they will have a two game lead in the
West and the season series advantage, it isn’t a must win, but it would
be nice to have in the pocket if you are Corey Chamblin.

Kramer Ltd. group purchases SJHL’s Central Division naming rights through 2016 season By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer You might think the “s” in Saskatchewan Junior Hockey league stands for Seinfeld when you hear the new name of the SJHL’s Central Division. Bill Chow, president of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, announced this week that Kramer has joined the league’s corporate family, purchasing the naming rights of the league’s new Central Divsion as the league realigns in 2013/14. Kramer Ltd., an auction group based out of North Battleford, has grown to be one of the leading auction groups of farm equipment throughout Western Canada. Kramer Ltd., marketing
manager Devin Wallin explained that Kramer’s roots in Central Saskatchewan made the partnership between the auction company and the SJHL a perfect fit for both parties. “We feel this is a very natural partnership as the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League and Kramer both have deep roots throughout the province,” said Devin Wallin, marketing manager of Kramer Ltd. “We make it a priority to be involved in the communities where our employees and customers live, work, and play.” As part of the threeyear agreement, the Central Division will be rebranded the Kramer Division. The new Kramer
Division will be home to the Kindersley Klippers, Battleford North Stars, Humboldt Broncos and Notre Dame Hounds. Kindersley has recently been going through some tough financial struggles in the Central Division, needing funds from the City of Kindersley to continue operations for 2013/14. SJHL president Bill Chow is happy to welcome the league’s newest corporate sponsor “We are very proud to welcome Kramer to the SJHL,” says Chow. “They are a Saskatchewan
company with a rich history, community commitment and strong work ethic. These are the same key life initiatives we try to reinforce to all of our players.” The SJHL season is nearing closer as the Yorkton Terriers report to training camp at the end of August with the puck dropping on the regular season shortly after in September. For now the league is excited to welcome another sponsor to help grow their brand of junior hockey in Saskatchewan.

Yorkton Legion Track Club represented at Western Champ. By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer Five members of the Yorkton Legion Track Club travelled with Team Saskatchewan to Calgary, Alberta from July 26th – 28th. The five athletes had posted qualifying times for Westerns during the outdoor track season leading up to the event and had high hopes going into the meet. These athletes competed in their qualified events at the 2013 Western Canadian Youth & Midget Track & Field Championships. Competition at this event is the best available in Western Canada with many athletes going on to compete at the National Championships in Langley, BC. Cole Burkholder was happy with his experience in attending the high end event after a successful club and school outdoor season in 2013 with the YRHS as well as the YLTC. “It was a great opportunity for me to show my
talents at a very high end meet. It was very hard, but I am happy I was part of it.” says Burkholder. Mikaila Ortynsky was also asked how her experience was. “The TriProvince meet was amazing. The meet itself was organized amazingly and my competitors were extremely strong in all of their events. Though I didn’t throw any new PBs I’ve gotten much valuable experience that’ll need for the next track season” says Ortynsky. Jaden Porte who attended this event last year as well as nationals in PEI in 2012 felt that the competition this year was on par to the two events he attended last year. “I was extremely impressed with the competition this year.” “I had a great push to hit personal bests. I was also extremely happy with my results as I ran the 3rd fastest 1,500m and fastest 800m this entire year by a youth Saskatchewan runner.”
“I am very impressed with the competition this year as it seems there are many more competitors from outside our club compared to the previous year,” Porte adds. Talking about the future of the club heading into the 2013/14 indoor season, Porte mentioned high expectations thanks to the excellent coaching in the club. “I think from the training of Coach Kirk Flaman, Coach Tom Cursons and Coach Bob Edwards we will see more competitors from our Yorkton club attend this meet next year,” says Porte. Results from the 2013 Western Canadian Championship: Individual Results: Mikaila Ortynsky: Shot Put = 7th, Discus = 5th, Javelin = 6th Ethan Field: 100m = 6th, Medley Relay = 6th Jaret Porte: 200m = 16th, 1,200m = 12th, 2,000m = 7th, Medley Relay = 5th Cole Burkholder: 800m = 8th, 1,200m =
9th, 2,000m = 5th, Medley Relay = 5th Jaden Porte: 800m = 7th, 1,500m = 10th, High Jump = 9th, 4 x 400m Relay = 5th The Western track meet wraps the 2013 season for the club. The
new 2014 training program will start again at the end of October for the YLTC as they prepare for the indoor track season. If anyone is interested in joining the Yorkton Legion Tarck Club, ages
12 years old and up, email Marcel Porte at marcel.porte@bayer. com. Porte will also be at Yorkton City Wide Registration on behalf of the YLTC.
YORKTON LEGION TRACK CLUB finished up its 2013 outdoor season by sending five YLTC members as part of Team Saskatchewan at the Western Canadian Championships in Calgary.
Calanchie’s pitching leads Yankees within one game of perfection Con’t. from Page 13
After the two ballclubs traded runs during the seven innings, the deciding game went into extra innings where this time the Indians would get revenge on the Supers. Derek Haberstock’s two run crank in the eighth innings would send Langenburg to the league final to take on the Yankees. In the first game of the series the Indians hopes of upsetting the red hot Yorkton Yankees would be served a dose of hard reality in the bottom of the third inning at Jubilee Park when the defending champions hung a seven run inning on the visitors to open up what would be a 10-0 blowout. Langenburg made it through the first two innings unscathed, but could only find two hits over the entire game on Yankees ace Logan Calanchie as the pitcher who was dominant in the Yankees title win over the Willowbrook Royals last season was back at it in this year’s SESBL Championship. Calanchie pitched six innings allowing just one hit before Ross Stilborn came into close the game. Calanchie would also add two runs with his bat. Kurt Karcha also registered two RBI’s in the win.
Calanchie would be right back on the mound Monday evening in Langenburg as the game travelled down the highway for Game Two. On decent rest Calanchie went four innings as he and reliever Stillborn shut out the Indians yet again to take a 6-0 win. Stillborn would be the game’s MVP as he also
put up two RBI’s in the win in addition to getting the save as the Yankees inched one game away from the title. A perfect season will be on the line in Game Three as the Yorkton Yankees are one win away from the title.

Tablets growing in popularity on campus Professors are accustomed to seeing laptops in post secondary classrooms and lecture halls. Technology trends and capabilities can change rapidly as tablets are beginning to replace laptops on campus. â€œThe majority of my students use laptops in AUCTIONS
class but Iâ€™ve been seeing increasingly more tablets in lectures,â€? says English professor Jason Stevens. â€œStudents use their tablets like notepads and use stylus pens to handwrite their notes. Itâ€™s a lot less obtrusive than sitting behind a laptop. I expect to see more tablets in my classes AUCTIONS
this year.â€? Technology experts agree with Professor Stevens. â€œTodayâ€™s tablets are light, easy to maneuver and connect to primary computers for more involved research and writing,â€? says Toshibaâ€™s education specialist Trevor Dantas. â€œThey are ideal AUCTIONS

RESPs: More flexible than you may think
While government grants of up to $7,200 per eligible child may seem like the most attractive part of an RESP (Registered Education Savings Plan), thereâ€™s more to the plan than free money. Here are just some of the features, no matter what future path your child chooses to take: â€˘ RESPs pay for more than just tuition: Your child can receive up to $5,000 at the start of the school course/year; after 13 weeks, if you and your child decide that this is not enough to cover expenses like housing or transportation, more funds can be withdrawn at any time. â€˘ Wide range of programs: RESPs arenâ€™t just for university or college expenses; they can be used for noncredit courses, skills training, approved programs (as short as three weeks long) and even for tuition fees at qualifying educational institutions outside Canada. â€˘ Your child has lots of time: If your child decides to travel or take a year off before starting their post-secondary education, no problem; RESPs can remain open for as long as 36 years. Part-time studies count too if your child decides to work and study. â€œWith all the flexibility that RESPs offer, you can find unique ways to use them to benefit your child or your familyâ€™s circumstances,â€? explains David Birkbeck, the head of registered products strategy at RBC. â€œYouâ€™re certainly not limited to using RESPs solely for university or college tuition.â€? More information on how an RESP can fit your familyâ€™s needs is available online at www.rbc.com/resp.

vert them to editable note files or record lectures to review later with the ability to adjust the volume of separate audio tracks. â€œWe see tablets as the ideal secondary device for students,â€? adds Lyons. â€œThe key to using a tablet in the classroom is finding models that have as many connectivity ports as possible. Ports provide the flexibility of connecting directly to a PC hard drive for file saving and storage.â€?
