Fees may see a drop – council looks at Deer Park rates By SHANNON DEVEAU N-R Writer

SHOW TIME! – Local students are in for a treat. OSAC (Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils) is bringing Axis Theatre and it’s production of “Raven Meets the Monkey King” to M. C, Knoll School in Yorkton in March. For over 36 years Axis Theatre, based out of British Columbia, has been inspiring and entertaining through theatrical presentations.

It would be a new way of looking at the situation but in the end, if it passes, it will mean lower rates, more accessibility and possibly increased usage. On Monday evening following a presentation to Yorkton City Council by Darren Spelay, the city’s recreation services manager, rather than voting to increase rates at Deer Park golf course, as has been the norm, it was decided to review the matter further and it was suggested a decrease in rates might be the better route to go. “A review of Deer Park Golf Course fees is completed each year following the golf season,” says Spelay. “The review is completed to ensure the fees are relative to the operating expenses as well as remain competitive.” Following the review a fee schedule was recommended that would see an increase in rates for most golfers. Several councillors were opposed to the idea, saying there has been a continual decline in the number of golfers on the course and that perhaps if rates were lowered it would attract more families and younger golfers – in turn, increasing revenues. “We have citizens who say they would go out and use the course if it were more cost effective...,” said Councillor James Wilson. “There’s no use having a municipal facility if it’s not accessible by the greater general public, this is not a private course...” Administration has been tasked to again review the matter and return to council with recommendations in March.

City awarded for innovation


It’s not an award every city can boast about but the City of Yorkton can. At Monday evenings regular meeting of city council the city was presented an FCM (Federation of Canadian Municipalities) Sustainable Communities Award. The award, presented annually, recognizes innovation and excellence in municipal sustainable development across the country in a number of categories including: energy, neighborhood development, transportation, waste and water. “The communities we celebrate completely debunk the idea that environmental sustainability and

economic development are mutually exclusive,” sais Raymond Louie, third vp of FCM at the official awards presentation ceremony held in Windsor, Ontario recently. “Tonight’s winners show how municipalities across the country are working with local businesses, labour, community organizations and developers to create and carry out sustainable development practices while developing a greener economy for Canada – one project at a time.” Yorkton was awarded for its water treatment plant and Logan Green Water Management System. The City of Yorkton developed an advanced water filtration plant that incorporates a system to treat backwash (water used for cleaning

filters). The system purifies backwash in wetland settling ponds and returns it to one of the aquifers that the city relies on for water for its rapidly growing population. By diverting backwash from its sewage treatment system, the city expects to save more than $9 million in infrastructure and operating costs over the life of the plant. The cost-effective and environmentally responsible system will deliver 22 million litres of potable water daily and is expected to meet the city’s water needs for the next 25 years. In addition, Logan Green has been transformed with a stream and fishpond, walking trails and six new multi-purpose sports fields.

PICTURED ABOVE with the award are Michael Buchholzer, the city’s director of environmental services and Mayor Bob Maloney.

Festival continues to see growth: prairie sun, seeds By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer Yorkton’s Prairie Sun Seed Festival is all about connecting area gardeners. This year’s event was the best yet, says Chairperson Heather Torrie. The event had booths with different gardening information and products, as well as speakers talking about different aspects of growing food, including permaculture, food preservation and compost. One of the highlights was the seed swap table, she says, which allowed people to trade their seeds with others in the community. While a new part of the show last year, this year saw the booth’s popularity explode, with more people than ever participating in the program. “The speakers are definitely a highlight. We have people within our community and region who are really knowledgeable about living sustainably, growing your own food, and preserving food and so having them come to speak to everyone has been a real pleasure,” she details. Stacey Tress with Garden Therapy Yorkton and Prairie Permaculture was one of the speakers at the event, talking about permaculture. She says that beyond being a new way to garden, permaculture is a way to approach building a community. “The emphasis of permaculture is earth care, people care and fair share...

We have four things that we can do in our own homes, which is plant trees, store and conserve water, save seeds and build soil. The key to the perennial system is that we need to be building soil, but we need to be growing food too,” Tress says. She notes that a system of using annual plants for food is much harder on the soil, while permaculture is easier on the soil and a sustainable system. Tress says that it’s something that’s easy to learn about, with information available from libraries or online. She says permaculture organizations are widespread, and that it’s something that each community needs to develop. She says that’s one of the reasons that the Prairie Sun Seed Festival is so valuable in the Yorkton area. “Community building is essential. We’re looking to do grassroots things where people can come together and talk, inspire people, have seed saving, have workshops like this, it’s great,” Tress adds. The event grows every year, Torrie says, and she says that it’s because people are more aware of the need to live in a sustainable way. “Each year it seems to get bigger and we have a larger response, I think as people get more concerned about eating foods that have been growing locally or growing their own food,” Torrie says. Money raised from the event goes to support local food banks.

HEATHER TORRIE, Chairperson of the Prairie Sun Seed Festival, shows some of the seeds available at the seed swap table.

Flow through investing – how you can save or defer on taxes At this time of year investors think about taxes so it’s not surprising to see several flowthrough share offerings on the market. Flowthrough shares are one of the last legitimate tax-assisted investment vehicles available to Canadians that can help save or defer taxes. Flow-through shares were originally designed to expand Canada’s natural resources sector. Canadian resource companies in the mining, oil and gas, and renewable energy and energy conservation sectors can raise capital through flow-through share offerings and use the proceeds to finance exploration and development activities. The concept is fairly straightforward. Earlystage Canadian resource companies can fully deduct certain exploration expenses, which transfer or “flow through” to their inves-

tors who then use these special deductions against their own income. The deductibility can be up to 100% of the amount invested. Investors gain an immediate tax deduction in the year they invest in flow-through shares. This reduces income taxes and, when the investor eventually sells the position, any gains are capital gains and taxed more favorably than income. If the investor has capital losses from previous years, they can be used to offset or eliminate the gains on the disposition. There are many flowthrough share offerings and choosing can be time consuming. One of the simplest methods of gaining exposure is to invest in a flow-through limited partnership (FTLP), a portfolio of flow-through shares actively managed by professionals. Administration is sim-

Financial freedom by Kim Inglis plified and the diversification provided by an FTLP spreads the risks. It’s best to purchase FTLPs early in the year. The better FTLPs open for purchase early in the year as it improves the probability of allocating 100 per cent of investors’ funds to quality resource issuers. The investor who waits increases the chance of purchasing a product that went to market based on investor demand but contains lower quality flow-

through issuers. FTLPs that open for purchase later may also find there are not enough flow-through issues to place 100 per cent of investors’ funds. If all of the investors’ capital cannot be placed, they won’t get a tax deduction on 100 per cent of their initial investment and the intended purpose of the flow-through investment will not be met. Flow-through investing is most beneficial for

high-income earners who are taxable at the highest marginal tax rate, or those who expect to be taxable at lower rates in the future. Recipients of large taxable lump sums, such as an inheritance, can use the FTLP to shelter the payment from taxes. Retired seniors whose income is above the Old Age Security clawback threshold may be able to use flow-through investing to reduce taxable income and maximize OAS benefits. However, there is risk and seniors should very carefully weigh the suitability of these investments relative to their particular personal circumstances. Investing in the resource and development sector involves risk and anyone contemplating flow-through shares,

whatever their tax situation, should be risk tolerant. Many of the companies will be small cap with low market liquidity and no history of earnings. If a company fails in its goals, there is a potential for losses to outweigh tax savings. Be sure you fully understand the associated risks before embarking on this kind of investing.

Constituents awarded Queen’s Jubilee Medals On Saturday, February the 9, thirty deserving constituents were awarded Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals at a Yorkton gathering of nearly two hundred, held at the New Horizons Seniors Centre. Though I had anticipated that event with pleasure, the storm that battered the East cancelled my flight home, preventing me from attending. I’m grateful for those who ably took my place, including Bob Maloney, Mayor of Yorkton, Greg Ottenbreit, MLA, Yorkton, and Colonel Kevin Bryski, a chief of staff from DND in Ottawa. Nine days after the event, at an informal gathering held in my constituency office. I had the joy of congratulating some of these thirty recipients in person: From Yorkton and nearby: Jean Bryski, for her outstanding volunteering and leadership in the local community; Vanessa Buchan, for 47 years of foster parenting; Kathleen Connors, for founding Yorkton’s Soup Haven, which serves 300 schoolchildren each school day; Margaret Cugnet, for her 42-year leadership on the Yorkton Arts Council and particular legacy of the Stars for Saskatchewan Series; Dr. Ivan Daunt, for long medical service to patients and community; Jack Dawes (Saltcoats), for agricultural journalism and other services to the agricultural community; Rev.

What you don’t can hurt you: have your ducts cleaned Submitted by Colin & Laura Aberle, Owners Aberle’s Furnace & Air Duct Cleaning When many people thing about furnace cleaning they think of the old adage “If it isn’t broke why fix it?”

Unfortunately, this way of thinking can be costly both financially and in regards to personal health and wellbeing. Studies have shown that having your furnace and ductwork cleaned on a regular

basis helps eliminate contaminants that have a negative effect on people who suffer from allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems. Not only does regular maintenance aid in health concerns but it also cuts down on housework as the dust that accumulates in the ducts does not blow through the vents and collect around the house. It is a misconception that new homes do not need to have their furnace and ducts cleaned as remnants from construction such as wood shavings, drywall dust and carpet fibers often clog them. Also, what many homeowners do

not realize is that when they have a new furnace or air conditioner installed one of the warranty requirements is often to have the ductwork cleaned as this helps ensure the life of the installed appliance. This is also required because unlike old furnaces the new ones are electronic, which include numerous censors, so when dust builds up in them it makes them not work properly, damages them or even shuts them down completely. Having your furnace cleaned typically doubles its life expectancy if cleaned on a regular two year basis. A little

known danger of not maintaining your furnace and ductwork is carbon monoxide leaks. If your furnace is not maintained properly it can eventually break down which can lead to the cracking of the heat exchanger thus leaking carbon monoxide. One aspect that most people tend to overlook is their dryer vent. Studies have shown that the build-up of lint in the vent can catch fire and has been known to start house fires causing hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of damage. To recap, having your furnace and ductwork cleaned on a regular basis saves you money,

extends the life of your furnace (which is often one of the most expensive appliances in your home), helps prevent carbon monoxide leaks, helps prevent and manage allergies, asthma and other respiratory issues and helps lead to a cleaner living environment. It may seem unnecessary to have your furnace and ductwork cleaned as it is a problem that does not stare us in the face every day, but it is an issue that in the long run leads to a higher standard of living and helps keep your hard earned money in your wallet where it belongs and not spent on numerous repairs.

Whatever you need done, you’ll find the solutions right here!

If you’re pregnant, put down that drink The message is a simple one – don’t drink alcohol while you are pregnant – but apparently it’s a message that goes unheeded enough to warrant the government to anti up funding. Agencies that promote awareness and prevention of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) in Saskatchewan have been informed they are receiving an additional $49,900 in funding. “When an expectant mother understands the potential harm that alcohol consumption can have on her child, FASD and the associated negative consequences is prevented,” Social Services Minister June Draude comments. “The funding being provided by government will further help create that awareness in our communities.” The Saskatchewan Prevention Institute (SPI) will receive $40,000 in support of its public campaign called, “No thanks, I’m pregnant.” The advertising campaign focuses on spreading the message about the harms of consuming alcohol while pregnant and is expected to launch across the province later this summer. SPI executive director Noreen Agrey said the continued financial support from government will promote an awareness about the harms alcohol can cause to unborn children. “Alcohol can damage the brain and other organs of the fetus. The goal of our new campaign is to raise awareness of the impact of alcohol on the unborn child and prevent Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, which lasts a lifetime.” The FASD Support Network of Saskatchewan will also receive $9,900 to raise its profile through social media and to enhance its website. It’s a shame that with everything known about the dangers of drinking while pregnant that people still do it, but then again it appears to be the same when it comes to cigarette smoke, driving while under the influence and much more... let’s hope increased education and support will do the trick.

Ooh la la Quebec, that’s ridiculous The way I see it...

That is just completely ridiculous. This is CANADA. It’s not France and it certainly should not be a land where dictatorships can take over. Quebec is going far too overboard when it comes to policing its language if you ask me. One would think the province’s leaders would want to encourage small business – especially given the fact they are so gung ho to separate, but when you read about things like this you just have to shake your head. The owner of a trendy (and highly successful) Italian restaurant in Montreal (Massimo Lecas is his name) is under the microscope, not because of any bad business practice, a dirty kitchen or for not paying his taxes – he dared to put the word “pasta” on his menu. Well it IS an Italian restaurant after all! Apparently, the word pasta isn’t French enough for Quebecers. There are a few other words on the menu that are also being examined, the owner has found out – when much to his surprise – he received a letter from a Quebec agency pointing out his “transgressions.” Wow. Apparently, a disapproving customer dined at

the location and didn’t like the wording on the menu so they reported it. Taking it all with a grain of salt, Lecas says he hasn’t had a language complaint in 22 years and he’s expecting he’ll able to resolve this Shannon Deveau be problem without too much incident, but if he doesn’t, fines for such an infraction can range between $1,500 and GET THIS – $20,000!!! Unbelievable. Reportedly, Quebec Cabinet Ministers are chuckling about the whole thing, saying it’s an overreaction on the part of the “language policing” agency but the very fact this can – and does – happen in the province (this is not the first case) is just silly. What’s the incentive for a small business to set up in this province? Quebec is mainly comprised of French speaking individuals and that’s fine, but it’s still a part of Canada and I think it should behave as such. The way people are being treated there actually is starting to make the word “separation” have a nice ring to it. If this restaurant owner is fined over having the word pasta on his Italian menu there is something seriously wrong with the way this country is being governed.


It’s dangerous to have nothing to actually do The Office québécois de la langue française, more commonly known as Quebec’s language police, has often been a source of mockery. The office, which exists to force businesses to use prominent French-language signage, has always seemed like an answer to a problem that doesn’t exist. A business will use signs that their customers understand, so they’re going to use French language signs so long as their customers speak it. If they don’t speak French, all the signs in the worlds won’t change that. What is more interesting is not that the language police exist, but that they’ve gone mad with power, and as a result have had drawn a level of mockery that hasn’t been seen since they were created. Lacking a real job with a purpose, and existing after everyone has altered their signs, they must have suddenly decided that they needed to justify their own existence. That is the only explanation for their initial rulings on Montreal Italian restaurant Buonanotte, which had the gall to use Italian words to describe food on their menu. Words like pasta, for example. The OQLF has since backed down, launched a review, and admitted there may have been an abuse of power. In the meantime, other Montreal restaurants have said that they have had insane complaints from OQLF officials, such as a chef’s grocery list saying

Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger steak, which shouldn’t be a big deal since the customers don’t actually see that list. The review is necessary, because they have gone completely out of hand. However, no matter what happens with the review, so long as the OQLF exists, there will be an incentive to abuse power, just because the office doesn’t have purpose anymore. One might argue that it never had a real purpose, but even when it comes to keeping French prominent on a sign they are no longer dealing with a big issue. New businesses will design their signs with the laws in mind, old businesses have already changed theirs, the job is now largely unnecessary.

That is essentially why Quebec has the problem they do now. While many jobs can be eliminated from the OQLF with little difficulty, nobody is going to want to actually lose their job. For those people whose job it is to go around Quebec inspecting businesses, they can’t admit that they have no purpose, all the signs are fine, and their time would be more productively spent if they just stayed at home and did some laundry. That would mean they have to find a new job, and nobody likes going on a job hunt. So what do you do? Well, in this case, they invented problems to solve, traveling to restaurants to find menu items that aren’t in French, even though cuisine is international and frequently uses words from a wide spectrum of languages. With food, even those with barely any understanding of different tongues could easily order a satisfying meal in a foreign country, just because of the cross-pollination of different cuisine styles. A restaurant is thus the perfect place for a language officer to prove their worth, since there will inevitably be many non-French words on any menu. Instead, they managed to illustrate the office’s pointlessness, and proved that they should perhaps get laid off or transferred to a different department. Their job no longer has any purpose.

An end to chronic homelessness Animal neglect not acceptable

To the Editor:

We have the knowledge, the evidence and the strategies to improve the plight of those who fall between the cracks and stay there for long periods of time. But every night, the shelters continue to fill up, and every day, the many people who are homeless on our streets watch as we pass by with eyes averted. At this moment, Canada has an opportunity to take action and reduce homelessness dramatically by expanding strategies we already know can work. The federal government launched the National Homelessness Initiative in 1999, after a significant rise in homelessness. This initiative allocated more than $1 billion to funding solutions such as community programs and beds in shelters. Programs such as these play an important role, but have not measurably reduced the number of homeless people countrywide. For that reason, the current government has sought evidence on the costeffectiveness of alternative options, such as ‘Housing First.’ ‘Housing First’ is based on the principle of providing housing to those in need before they’re deemed ‘ready’ to re-enter society. To qualify for housing, individuals don’t need a job or a stable lifestyle, and they don’t need to enter rehab, though once they get a home many of them will accomplish all of these things and more. Canada will soon finish the largest randomized trial of its kind on Housing First in the world. Overseen by the Mental Health Commission of Canada with funding from Health Canada, At Home/Chez Soi

has housed about 1,000 people with mental illness in five cities across Canada. Each participant was given a choice of apartments to live in, a rent subsidy and an assigned case worker for support. The study randomly assigned 990 participants to a control group of people who only re-

vices and shelters. For those who used services the most, those savings were even greater, with three dollars saved for every two dollars spent.

Homelessness is more than a social issue, it’s a health issue. The participants in At Home/ Chez Soi all live with mental illness and they are at a much higher risk of physical illness than most Canadians. Getting appropriate health care is just one of the things that community support teams help participants with. A chronic lack of affordable housing and stable employment opportunities that pay a living wage for low-skilled workers are often the reason people end up homeless in the first place. It’s a game of musical chairs, and when the music stops, often those who need support the most are left standing outside the circle. But once they have a decent place to live, they can begin to reconnect with friends and rejoin the community. The At Home/Chez Soi model is a wise investment in addressing the inequalities faced by those with complex illness. This is ground-breaking research with the potential to help governments drastically improve Canada’s approach to homelessness, social policy and our entire health care system. Continued support for At Home/Chez Soi and similar Housing First programs will help ensure we don’t lose the crucial ground we’ve gained in improving the lives of Canadians.

“It’s a game of musical chairs, and when the music stops, often those who need support the most are left standing outside the circle. But once they have a decent place to live, they can begin to reconnect with friends and rejoin the community.” ceived the services already available in their cities. About 85 per cent of participants who were housed are still in the first or second apartment they chose. Not only that – many of them are thriving. Many are volunteering and enrolling in school. Many participants have accepted professional help for their mental illnesses. Results from this study will help governments invest cost effectively in the reduction of chronic homelessness and in doing so will radically improve people’s lives. For every two dollars spent on Housing First, the system saved a dollar by reducing the costs of police detentions, hospital ser-

A fond farewell to the man in the green hat To the Editor: Canada lost a genuine character last week with the passing of the Honourable Eugene Whelan. It was my good fortune to know Gene for a good portion of his time in federal politics. He became Canada’s Agriculture Minister in 1972, just two years before I was first elected in the big rural Saskatchewan riding of Assiniboia. We subsequently campaigned together, both in Saskatchewan and across the country. Gene Whelan was a man of the soil in more ways than one. His “earthy” use of language always made it an adventure to have a conversation with him or listen to one of his speeches. More times than not, those

speeches with their unusual grammar and colourful turns-ofphrase elicited standing ovations. He didn’t rely on contrived audiences to ensure sympathetic responses, or spin-doctors to craft messages in which every word was market-tested by a pollster. Gene was absolutely unfiltered, and he connected with people like few politicians can ever do. One thing was always abundantly clear – Whelan stood for agriculture and for farmers, and whatever they might have thought about his politics, farmers always knew they never had a more loyal friend and advocate. His trademark green Stetson was a tribute to the sector he loved so much. Gene was also a re-

lentless campaigner for Canada and national unity. Pierre Trudeau relied on him extensively to build enthusiasm and stamina among Canadians to withstand the wearying tactics of those who promoted separatism. Typically before a speech in a church basement in some corner of the country, he would unfurl a Red Maple Leaf Flag and propup a hand-lettered sign reading “Whelan: Canadian!” It’s maybe not as well known that Gene played a helpful role in Russian perestroika and ending the Cold War. Long before he became President of the USSR, Mikhail Gorbachev was the Soviet Agriculture Minister. He and Whelan became friends, and he made a

lengthy visit to Canada with Eugene constantly at his side. A former Soviet Ambassador to Canada credits that visit with shaping some of the fundamentals that would eventually transform global politics. Closer to home, many Canadians will remember Gene Whelan for his commitment to democratic producercontrolled marketing systems, his passion for agricultural research and his support for grassroots rural organizations like PFRA. He will be missed, because he was genuinely interesting and authentic. And he did a lot of good. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Liz and their family. Ralph Goodale, MP, Wascana, SK.

Why are motorcycle owners being punished? To the Editor: SGI’s proposed 73 per cent hike in insurance costs for Saskatchewan motorcycle owners looks like an act of punishment. Why motorcycle owners are being singled out? The excuse that the sharp increase in insurance rates is

based on an increase in motorcycles last year does not wash. Why is the Wall Government using SGI to punish motorcycle owners? Perhaps it is because some Riders supported the Film Tax Credit at a Rally last year? The move appears to single out motorcycle owners almost exclusively for a rate increase this

year. Donna Harpauer, needs to come to her senses and not proceed with slapping motorcycle owners in the face with such a massive insurance hike. Victor Lau, Regina, Saskatchewan Leader of the Green Party of Saskatchewan.

To the Editor: The Saskatchewan SPCA is concerned with the increase in both the number and the severity of cases involving cattle and horses this winter. There has been roughly a 76 per cent increase in cases involving horses, and an approximate 89 per cent increase in cattle case files this winter (Dec. 2012 to Feb. 2013), compared with the previous winter. As well, the livestock cases have been more severe. In the winter of 2012/13, the Saskatchewan SPCA had a total of 11 Priority 1 files involving cattle and horses; in contrast, there were a total of two Priority 1 files for cattle and horses in the previous winter. A Priority 1 case is one requiring immediate action by the Saskatchewan SPCA. These are cases involving dead or dying animals; animals without water; starving animals; or other situations where the life of the animal is at immediate risk. This winter has been particularly challenging, with many areas of the province experiencing heavy snowfall and extended periods of extreme cold. The current high cost of feed is creating additional pressure for owners. Producers have an obligation to care for their animals, year-round, even when conditions are tough. The Saskatchewan SPCA reminds producers to check on their cattle and horses frequently throughout the winter in order to ensure they are maintaining an adequate body condition. Changes in feed and/or management may be required to protect animals from distress. According to The Animal Protection Act, an animal is in distress if it is deprived of adequate food, water, care or shelter; injured, sick, in pain or suffering; or abused or neglected. The majority of Saskatchewan cattle producers and horse owners do a very good job caring for their animals, says Pugh. That’s why it’s particularly disturbing when we encounter situations where animals have suffered long-term neglect and are clearly in distress. If you are worried about animals that may be suffering due to a lack of food, shelter, water or care, please call our office as soon as possible to let us know about the situation: 1.877.382.7722. All calls are confidential. Kaley Pugh, Manager of Animal Protection Services, Saskatoon, SK.

The farmer is trained, moves on and settles in Submitted by Kaare Askildt, former Preeceville area farmer in training. This is the 31st of a series on getting settled in Hazel Dell. Well, we had worn out the chain on Marion’s saw. No, let me correct that, Marion wore out the chain on her own

chainsaw; I had nothing to do with it! She claims that I might have hit a nail or a staple when I cut up some old fence posts! Me! I don’t think saw! Anyway Rudy at Headwaters fixed it. We learned a couple of new things from him. It might be a 14” bar on the saw, but not all 14” chains will fit. The last

number on the bar tells how many links there are in the chain. Marion had gotten a 14” chain, but it only had 50 links instead of the 51 that was marked on the bar! She also learned that the hole at the tip of the bar is actually a grease nipple! Thank you Rudy! She can’t wait to try out her saw with a new chain and greased


bar! Look out Paul Bunyan, you have competition! The lamb that we ordered will be slaughtered just before Christmas, and because it is so small we will be doing the butchering ourselves. Continued on Page 9.

Magical production makes way to Yorkton – Ballet Jörgen to perform Swan Lake It’s one of Canada’s most renowned ballet company’s and once again it will be making a return trip to Yorkton. Ballet Jörgen Canada is celebrating its 25th anniversary season with the world’s most renowned Classical Ballet, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and next week Yorkton and area residents will have the opportunity to view it live. This classical production is one of the most magical, beloved ballets – a story of true love, the union of two souls and the ultimate sacrifice to be set free. Bengt Jörgen, one of Canada’s most distinguished classical ballet choreographers says he is delighted to bring the production across Canada so that everyone has the opportunity to see, experience and be touched by this most extraordinary of all ballets. Jorgen has re-envisioned the classical and dramatic Swan Lake, adding a hint of Canadian heritage as is often a sign of his work. While this major new

production of Swan Lake showcases the extraordinary beauty of traditional ballet in its purest form, Jorgen reimagines it in the picturesque seascape of the Fortress of Louisbourg, Nova Scotia. The elaborate sets are designed by Camellia Koo, reflecting the beauty of Canada’s national heritage park and providing a dramatic backdrop to Robert Doyle’s 17th century costume designs. “I am so excited to do this work and be able to do it with the kind of incredible dancers that we have. Swan Lake has an evocative and inspiring quality that makes it a pleasure and beauty to work on, and I’m excited about transferring that feeling to the people watching it,” says Jorgen. The 2012-2013 season will bring Ballet Jorgen Canada and the beautiful set of the Fortress of Louisbourg to 33 venues, through seven Canadian provinces as well as New York state. This performance is

Get ready for a trip down Memory Lane father would bring me to shows like this,” he comments. He also says that since the songs in the show were so influential, it’s something that can connect with people even if they aren’t familiar with them. “It was just an important show I had to do. I tour in my own right, but this show was something that is very close to my heart and songs that are favorites of my folks.” Music is closely tied to memory, and Maguire says that he wants to bring back positive memories for the crowd, and that he also hopes people share their memories of the songs with their families. “There’s so much history, I think there are so many things kids learn about their parents and grandparents that they never knew because of a night like this. It’s called Memory Lane because that’s what it is, a trip down memory lane, not just for the music but for the stories from the parents and grandparents to their kids.” The show has been well received so far, Maguire says, with people saying they want to have a chance to hear music from this era again. He says he enjoys it most when he sees people enjoy hearing their old favorites. “It’s so interesting because when we introduce the songs you can kind of hear that gasp

By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer It’s time to take a trip down memory lane. Stephen Maguire is bringing his Memory Lane performance to the city, a show which features hits from the 40s, 50s, and 60s, including many all time classics from artists like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Doris Day and Buddy Holly. The show takes place on March 2 at the St. Mary’s Cultural Centre. Maguire says that his passion for this era of music started with his father, who took him to see The Buddy Holly Story and had played in bands with names like Dusty Springfield and Van Morrison. “I was hooked on the old classic music... So when we were putting the show together the biggest problem we had was what songs are we going to leave out? There are so many, there are thousands of hits from those eras,” he said in a recent interview with The News Review. The show itself is for the entire family, something Maguire says is important to him, since bringing people of all ages is the best way to keep the music alive for multiple generations. “I love it when grandkids are with their grandparents. This is a totally all ages event, and this is how I was introduced to this music, when my

SUDOKU RULES The objective is to fill a 9×9 grid with digits so that each column, each row, and each of the nine 3×3 sub-grids that compose the grid (also called “boxes,” “blocks,” “regions,” or “sub-squares”) contains all of the digits from 1 to 9. The puzzle setter provides a partially completed grid, which typically has a unique solution. Completed puzzles are always a type of Latin square with an additional constraint on the contents of individual regions. For example, the same single digit may not appear twice in the same 9x9 playing board row or column or in any of the nine 3x3 subregions of the 9x9 playing board. This week’s puzzle is easy.

from the audience... They’re all hits, that’s the beauty of the show, everybody is going to recognize these songs from their past.” This performance will be to a hometown crowd for Maguire, who has an important connection to the city. “When I was picking places to go, Yorkton was at the top of my list because I got married in Yorkton. The place where the show is is where I had my wedding reception! My wife is originally from Yorkton, I’ve done that trip many times and I’ve got many great friends in Yorkton.” Memory Lane takes place on Saturday, March 2 at the St. Mary’s Cultural Centre. Tickets are available at Yorkton Co-op. “I’m so looking forward to making that drive back to Yorkton,” he concludes.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Irish fare There are a number of novelty consumables that consistently reappear in the marketplace during the days leading up to March 17th. These will most undoubtedly include items such as green tinted beverages like beer and milkshakes for example. Although this may be an amusing way to recognize St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland, a culinary adventure of Irish cuisine would be more nostalgic. There are a number of traditional Irish dishes that one can prepare to make the dinner table a celebratory venue in recognition of St. Patrick’s Day. Potatoes continue to be a staple in Irish cuisine but there are many dishes, with or without potatoes, which capture the essence of their time-

honored meals. Dublin Coddle is a recipe that first comes to mind when thinking about Irish food. It is a dish that consists of panfrying sausages, bacon, onions, & garlic before placing them on potatoes slices in a casserole dish and baking together with some broth and seasonings. The seasonings can be as simple as using some dried sage with salt and pepper. Colcannon is a very traditional vegetarian dish consisting of a mashed combination of potatoes with cabbage. The potatoes are cooked and mashed while the cabbage is pan-fried with butter and onions before being combined with the mashed potatoes with some milk or cream and seasoned to taste.

Irish whiskey, and warm spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. This is just a small sample of traditional Irish fare. The Internet and the local library will prove to be valuable resources to elaborate on these ideas and make this St. Patircks Day a mealtime celebration.

Chef Dez on Cooking by Gordon Desormeaux Soda Bread is a common accompaniment to many meals. It is a simple quick bread that rises with the chemical combination reaction of buttermilk with baking soda. There are many varieties of this recipe and my favorite includes the addition of wheat germ. The classic shape of this bread is round with the surface scored with a knife four times in star shaped pattern.

Lamb and Beef Stews are also very popular as one-dish meals in Ireland. Many also can include the addition of Guinness beer – a delicious black stout from Dublin. A classic sweet with a cup of tea would be Irish Tea Brack. It is similar to a fruit cake but made without butter or margarine, and has no candied fruit. Raisins and lemon rind usually grace this heavy cake along with

Dear Chef Dez: A Scottish friend of mine, use to talk about a dish called “Rumbledethumps”. Do you know what this is? How do you make it? Rebecca L. Burnaby, BC Dear Rebecca: Through some investigation, I have determined

that “Rumbledethumps” is a Scottish dish that is almost identical to the Irish dish “Colcannon”. It is a mixture of pan-fried cabbage with white onion stirred into mashed potatoes. The difference is that Rumbledethumps is baked with the inclusion of grated cheddar cheese mixed in and melted on top of the dish. Send your food/cooking questions to dez@ or P.O.

The farmer is trained, moves on and settles in Con’t from Page 6. We discussed the kind of cuts we would make, and then I remembered an Old Norwegian dish, supposedly a delicacy, called “Smalahove,” so I asked Marion if I could make that for supper one day. She asked me to describe the dish. I had to admit that I have never tasted “Smalahove,” but it would be interesting to give it a try. “Smala” is a Norwegian West Coast dialect for sheep, and “Hove” is dialect for head. Depending on the Norwegian West Coast district, it can also be called “Smalehovud”

or “Skjelte.” The dish is actually a steamed sheep’s head and is traditionally served twice a year. The skin and the fleece of the head are torched, then dried and salted. While still hot, the skull was cracked with a hammer and chisel, the brains spooned out and served, and then the head was split in two and each lucky diner had to consume half a head. Today the head is steamed. Some might forego the cooking of the brain, and cut the head in half before steaming it. “Smalahove” connoisseurs state that the eyeball and the muscles behind the eyeball

are the tastiest morsels, as well as the tongue! The meat just below the gum line has the least amount of fat. My wife made it very clear that I have a choice between “Smalahove” and her, and if I think too long about it, then I’m already in trouble! It was of course an easy decision! My twin brother Kjell, attended a “Smalahove” feast at one time. It was the first and only time he tasted this dish. He noticed the guest across the table from him, obviously a seasoned “Smalahove” diner, eagerly digging out the eyeball and noisily slurping it into his

mouth! A definite UGH, YUK and UFFDA sight and experience! He also told me that copious amounts of beer and Akkevit or Aquavit (a very potent Norwegian spirit usually chased with beer) were also consumed by all the guests while dining on “Smalahove,” and having attended a feast and seen the sheep’s head served on a platter, he could very well understand why! It is also known that partaking in eating this meal, combined with the liquid that is part of the dinner, does produce an unusual amount of methane gas in a person’s

body. Most if not all of the diners have after the 5th or so shot of Aquavit chased with a beer lost all of their inhibitions, and the gas is passed loudly and indiscriminately, and mixed with the “Smalahove” scent usually cause a distinct malevolent aroma hovering over the guests. The redolence would be familiar to those that attend these feasts on a regular basis. “Smalahove” was originally a poor man’s meal. The wealthy farmers gave the sheep’s heads to their poor farm workers, who then developed this meal into what is now a considered a delicacy!

Terriers end regular season on top By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer It took longer than they would have liked, but the Yorkton Terriers finally wrapped up first place in the Sherwood Conference in the final game of the season, taking out the Battlefords North Stars at home, winning 4-2. The game got off to a slow start in the first period, with the North Stars kicking off the scoring with Kyle Hall putting one between the posts on a power play, assisted by Braeden Johnson and Brody Luhning. It was the second period where the scoring really lit up, with Jeremy Johnson putting up Yorkton’s first goal of the night, assisted by Kailum Gervais and Tyler Giebel. It was soon followed by Devon McMullen putting one through, assisted by Nathan Murray and Jeremy Johnson. The Battlefords fought back, with a goal by Braeden Johnson tying up the match. Austin Evans and Kyle Hall got the assist. However, the Terriers answered back with a power play goal from Kailum Gervais, assisted by Brady Norrish and Tayler Thompson. This wrapped up the second period with the Terriers in the lead. The third period was hard fought, but there was very little scoring to go around. With under 20 seconds left, the Terriers officially ended the Battlefords’ chances when Thompson got the puck past the North Stars and it slid into an empty net. Team captain Devon McMullen says that the team dug in to get the win, and says that the Battlefords were a formidable opponent. “They’re a good team that doesn’t quit on you. We knew that was going to happen and needed a little time to adjust, but we certainly did and came back right at them,” McMullen says. It was also a rare goal for McMullen, who doesn’t get as many opportunities when playing defense as most players. He says it was hockey instinct that lead to the opportunity and one of the key goals for the team. He is confident that the team will do well in the playoffs, saying that even though the team has been weak when

The show was packed with 53 booths and displays for people to browse. Eugene Duchnitski, event chairman says that the weekend went better than even they expected, selling more booths than anticipated as well as admitting over 1,400 people on Saturday alone. He says that exhibitors came from across the prairies to show their wares. It’s the variety that made this year special, Duchnitski says, with a wide range of different

vendors offering things for all ages. While guns are a big part of the show, Duchnitski notes that there are also all manner of collectible items, including coins, toys and historic pieces. It’s an event for the whole family, he emphasizes, and everyone could find something in the booths that they enjoy. “Some people get the wrong impression and think it’s just guns, but it’s not. It’s anything,” Duchnitski says. It’s also a draw for people across the prairies, and Duchnitski that it’s the kind of thing that’s in someone’s blood. He says people come from miles away just because they’re passionate about their hobbies. Continued on Page 14.

Coverage of Pistorius case is going too far Last week the feel good story of Olympian Oscar Pistorius took the darkest of turns in South Africa. The amputee who ran using blades for legs in the 2012 London games, is now being investigated for the murder of his girlfriend in a story that has captivated the public as well as the media. Pistorius’ has went from worldwide symbol of the Olympic spirit to the symbol of why athletes shouldn’t be role models overnight and the evidence surrounding against him is a very bad look for the South African. Everyone seems to have an opinion on this issue as with all high profile murder charges, but the tabloid style coverage of this trial

from reputable news and sports sources will never sit right with me as in any case like this. If Pistorius’ story holds up that he was shooting at an attempted burglar when he claimed the life of his girlfriend through a bathroom door, than we as journalists are making a terrible error. No sensitivity has been given to the families of the victims, the young, beautiful and lively young woman who has been taken away from them has been almost completely forgotten in this story and demoted to a minor detail. Stories of the relationship between Pistorius and his fiancee leak every day, often from only one source and with very little fact checking all in the name of a ratings

Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig boost and maybe a few more sold newspapers in the morning with this grizzly headline as the lead in? But is that really right? Yes, the public wants to know the facts and to follow along the story. Pistorius was released on bail this weekend and the public court trail in South Africa is sure to draw correspondents of

every major news center in the world, but does there need to be a new friend/distant cousin dropping a juicy revelation about the relationship of two people who ended their relationship in a potential homicide? Acting like the National Enquirer is not doing your job and you can’t really make a stance on if Pistorius murdered

his wife or not on record because no one knows, so what is the point on commentary on this issue other than it is extremely sad and a massive shock. This whole situation reminds me of the OJ Simpson trial, where CNN made its first stamp on journalism and North American coverage with its extensive reporting of every minute detail of the trial which ended up with a not guilty verdict for Simpson. To this day no one knows if he actually murdered his ex wife, and in this case Pistorius will be in the same boat. Even if he is found not guilty in the court of public opinion and the media, he has done it. His wife is dead and his house was riddled with bullets and a

bloody cricket bat, it was too easy for the media to take those facts and run with the spin that he did it and start the storm of outcry and opinion. It was a slam dunk. But his day in court will come, and that is the time to be reporting on this, not when the South African police are doing their best to find the evidence to put together a prosecution case to find justice. They don’t need to be doing four hours of pressers a day, and there doesn’t need to be a Pistorius Watch on the hour every hour. Let this be put on the record this is the last time I provide an opinion on Pistorius in this column until his court case starts. Someone has to draw the line somewhere.

P ROFESSIONAL D ISC J OCKEY S ERVICES “The Wedding Specialists” YORKTON TERRIER Tayler Thompson takes a shot during the final home game of the season. Thompson got the final goal in the game, which the Terriers won 4-2.

Terriers prepare for playoffs Continued from Page 11. Coach Trent Cassan agrees with his captain that the Battlefords put in a hard fought effort, and says it was a playoff-style intensity from both teams. “I’m certainly proud of the guys for how they dug in and played a well rounded game,” Cassan says. “As a coaching staff, we knew it was going to be a tight game no matter what, so you have to stay the course.” When it comes to McMullen, Cassan says that he played well all game, delivering big hits and taking a few himself. He says that whether or not he’s on the score sheet he’s a key member of the team, but it was also a good way to end his regular season. “It was nice to see a guy who doesn’t show up on the score sheet as much but has an impact on every game step up and score a big goal,” Cassan says. While the team can afford to take a couple days off now that they have finished on top, Cassan emphasizes that this is just one step towards the ultimate goal. He notes that it’s a bit more difficult not knowing who they are playing, but they’re going to work hard studying the two teams in contention. “In two weeks time it doesn’t matter where we finished or what our record was, it’s a new season,” Cassan says. “I think more than anything it’s just having our guys prepared to play our style of play, really stressing that, pushing them hard in practice and having our leaders push each other and enjoy a bit of time off this week,” Cassan says. Finishing at the top of the Sherwood Conference, the Terriers now have to play the waiting game, to see who wins the best of five survivor series between the Kindersley Klippers and the Estevan Bruins. The next action will be on either March 8 or March 9 at home, depending on who gets the win.

Coach Odgers and with three more goals, By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer

riding Dakota Odgers four assists in the hometown of his WHL club Broncos to a 7-3 win. Donavon Lumb added two goals and Bogdan made 31 saves to finish the regular season 158-4. Lynnden Pastachak also got his 29th goal and assist on Sunday to finish as the Harvest’s leading point getter with fifty eight. Now the Harvest look forward to a best of five match up with the Regina Pat Canadians to open their championship hopes in round one. Despite having never beat the Canadians this season the Harvest took the Pats to overtime in every game this year and often led late in the third period before suffering a late goal, making this series an extremely intriguing clash of two very even teams. The Canadians will be led on the blueline by the solid defensive core of Troy

Starting at $239,785 (GST

Murray and Sam Ruopp and the goaltending tandem of Logan Flodell and Cameron Pateman. Pateman had a 2.58 GAA this while posting 13 wins and Flodell has been stellar with a 1.58 GAA and an insane 12-3 record to back it up. Flodell grabbed the last two starts of the season so one will assume he will start the series for the Canadians and gives the Canadians a distinct advantage in goal for this series. Carson Bogdan will have to come up with at least three stellar games in net if the Harvest are going to pull out this series against a team that has had their number all year albeit all in overtime. At forward the Canadians will counter the Harvest’s dynamic duo of Odgers and Pastachak with two accomplished

scorers of their own. Zachary Zaborosky and Mitch Lipon both cracked the fifty point plateau for the Canadians this season and will be joined along side twenty goal scorer and 45 point man Tristan Frei as the players the Harvest will need to key on in their defensive systems. Finally Jayden Halbgewachs will be an X factor in this series as the rookie forward had 36 points this season and can get hot at any time and has the potential to be a future top line forward in the WHL. On the Harvest’s end a hard working team that has been one of the league’s best since December simply just needs to claw out wins they so closely came to accomplishing in the regular season against the Pats if they want to take this se-

ries. It might come down to getting the lucky bounces they didn’t get in the regular season at the end of the day, but a team that is extremely balanced will be looking to find a spark from anywhere to provide a difference maker. A candidate for that player just might be Chase McKersie, a player with a knack for scoring big goals since the Christmas break, his play can always come alive and could come up with one of those timely playoff goals both teams will need in what is going to be a tightly contested series. Playoff hockey is coming to the FAA this March and with the way these two teams went at each other in the regular season one thing is a guarantee, you won’t want to miss a single second of this series.

Gun show features some premium firearms By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer One of the advantages of a show like the Yorkton Gun and Hobby Show is the ability to see things that you might not be able to see every day, whether it’s rare collectibles or premium firearms. Will Bilozer of Bilozer Fine Guns brought fine guns out of Italy and Spain to the show, to represent the premium segment at the show. Bilozer’s display featured Italian over-unders as well as Spanish side-by-side shotguns to the show. He says that the guns he brought represent high quality craftsmanship and are a cut above most shotguns on the market. “Italians have been making guns for five centuries, so they’re getting pretty good at it,” Bilozer jokes. In fact, some of the shotguns on display are completely hand-made, Bilozer says, and he notes that the pride in the craftmanship comes through on the product, which is impeccably finished inside and out. These are guns that are not found in big box stores, he

says, and are not commonly sold overall. He recalls having to make frequent trips to the factories in Italy and Spain to convince the owners that he was the right person to sell their products, because they are very selective about who they choose to do business with. While Bilozir says that less expensive guns have merit, the product he sells are truly a cut above the rest. “Mechanically, they’re really well designed and very well machined, so they will last for 40,000 shots or more. Another thing is they’re very big on selecting very beautiful wood, nice engraving, the fit and finish on them is excellent. If you take them apart, they’re as well finished on the inside as they are on the outside. One of our Italian manufacturers joked about it. He said that the Germans make good guns, the Americans make good guns, but nobody dresses like an Italian.” That quality is reflected in the price, and Bilozer’s shotguns are frequently priced in the thousands of dollars. The

most expensive gun on display cost $12,800, for example, and many of more basic guns on display were hitting the equivalent of the high end American models. The guns are naturally used for hunting and target shooting, but Bilozir says many are also used as an investment, as they don’t depreciate. He notes that due to the design, they can be appreciated by people who aren’t into shooting. “These are really fine guns to take hunting, they’re beautifully balanced and fitted and they shoot really well. Anyone who is a hunter who wants to carry a really nice gun, that’s part of the attraction. I had a Russian grandpa who said life’s too short to carry an ugly gun. The show went well overall for Bilozir, but he says the true impact won’t be known for a few months. He notes that the Yorkton market tends to take their time making a decision on a high end product, so he finds that people who look at the guns at the show will often call him much later to finally make a purchase.

Gun show success Continued from Page 11. He adds that one of the advantages of the Yorkton show in particular is that it’s two days, which allows people to think about what they see for a night before finally committing to purchasing something they have their eye on. “I know myself, I like to look around first and see whose got what and then before I go home, I decide I want that item or I want that gun or that handgun, I go and buy it. A lot of guys will come Saturday, make their decision overnight, and come Sunday to pick it up,” Duchnitski says. Overall, Duchnitski says that the 2013 event has been great for everyone in attendance.

Yorkton Wildlife Federation hosts annual awards The Yorkton Wildlife Federation hosted its annual Fundraising Banquet, Awards and Dance this past weekend. The event was a success thanks to the many sponsors and people in attendance. Two major sponsors worthy of mention are Dream Cabinets and Yorkton Dodge. It is the continued support from businesses like this that make the event the success that it is. This year, the YWF iterated the importance of youth and their involvement in conservation. Heath Dreger, President – YWF and Region 3 Director – SWF, recounted a few stories of his youth and how he transitioned from a fisherman, to hunter, to a steward of nature, and finally a conservationist. “Little did I even realize at the time that we were becoming part of something bigger. We were not just fisherman, or hunters. We were becoming sportsman, stewards of nature. We became conservationists. After all, it is the ones that utilize the resource that wish to protect it as best they can. That is why we are all here today. In the name of conservation and to support conservation groups like the Yorkton Wildlife Federation and the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation. Whether it was the first time your mother or father took you out fishing, or hunting or even for a walk to enjoy Mother Nature, we all developed this same passion, and we are all part of this bigger picture,” Dreger says. Dreger continued to say how there is an increasing demand for youth awards to recognize them for their time spent in the outdoors. “This coming year, the

YWF is trying to emphasize the importance of youth and their involvement with conservation. They are our future! Without youth members, we will certainly suffer as an organization. While presenting awards to youth, and adults for that matter, at our annual awards banquet isn’t the main reason to get youth involved. It definitely doesn’t hurt to recognize them for the time they spend in the field. Their main reward is in those experiences themselves. “The YWF is looking to expand its youth awards categories to encompass all types of big game animals. There is a growing demand for these awards and we are listening. If there are any businesses or individuals that are interested in sponsoring some of these awards, you can approach any of our executive members. I encourage each and every one of you to go out and give a youth the opportunity to experience what we all know and love.” Dreger closed his speech with an important message. “We all need to do our part in the name of conservation. Because without conservation, there would be no hunting or fishing!” A special youth only raffle table was implemented at this year’s banquet. All youth, 16 and under, in attendance were automatically entered for the draw table. The excitement on each kids face, as they all walked away winners, was priceless. The YWF would like to extend a special Thank You to the following sponsors of the youth raffle table: PK Lures, Home Hardware, Young’s Plant World, Yorkton Co-op, Ron & Pat Ross, and Roy Davis.

Melnechenko - Melvin Leo (Mel) passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 73 years of age. Mel was born September 18, 1939 near Sheho, SK. He was the son of George and Kay (nee Pekush) Melnechenko. He grew up on the family farm in the Sheho district and attended Pohorlowitz school. At an early age he moved with his family to the Rokeby district. He attended Yorkton Collegiate Institute. Mel worked at Case IH, then he travelled, selling for Sherwin Williams Paints. He married Shirley Gehring August 4, 1962. They had 3 children, Curtis, Cindy and Kevin. In the 1970s he owned a ladies wear store. He also opened a vehicle dealership called Yorkton Truck & Auto Sales, later renamed Dunleath Motors. He spent many many years travelling to Alberta to the dealer auctions to buy vehicles. June 24, 2000 he married Carol Miller and they bought a house in Calder and moved it into Yorkton. Mel wanted to spend more time at home, so he started buying cars and trucks on the internet and doing less travelling. He enjoyed tinkering with and selling vehicles, hunting, fishing, golfing, dancing, playing pool, going to auction sales and playing cards. He was a gentle and caring man. He loved his family and would do anything for them. Mel was predeceased by his parents, George and Kay, his sister-in-law Sandy Melnechenko and his stepson Bryan Woloschuk. He leaves to mourn his passing and celebrate his life, his loving wife, Carol; his son Curtis (Margo) and their children Colby and Breanna; his daughter Cindy Fisher (Aaron) and their children Amanda, Kendra (Murray) and Bryce; and his son Kevin (Joanne) and stepdaughter Josee; his great grandson, Tavon Fisher; his stepdaughters, Brenda Woloschuk and her daughter Amanda and Barb Woloschuk and her children Raeghan and Dylan; his brothers Wilmer and Bernie, a niece, nephew, cousins, uncles and aunts and extended family. The funeral service will be held Friday, March 1, 2013 with Rev. Molly Kitchen presiding. Soloist, Kendra Fisher. Urn bearers, Mel's sons, Curtis and Kevin. Interment of cremains will take place in the Garden of St. Luke at Yorkton Memorial Gardens. Bailey's funeral home was in charge of arrangements. The family wishes to thank everyone for their support, many messages on facebook, acts of kindness and attendance at this service. "Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings in Heaven where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy"
