Keeping history alive – WDM celebrates 65 years By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer

FORMER LOCAL HONORED WITH TOP COP AWARD – The son of Yorkton Terrier General Manager Don Chesney – former local turned Saskatoon Police Officer, Derek Chesney – was recently awarded a “Most Valuable Cop” Award by a US based current affairs and cultural magazine called Slate. Chesney, pictured above right, was honoured for a blog post he wrote about Alvin Cote (left), a homeless man who was a fixture on his Saskatoon street beat. Cote passed away in April and mentioned in the awards, the magazine praised Chesney for “reminding us that cops can be as soft-hearted as anyone else.” See the award winning blog on Page 6.

Local harvest raises record funds


The Olde Tyme Harvest has already broken records, and now it is feeding the world. The event, which saw 42 vintage threshing machines operating simultaneously, has raised $135,000 for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Warren Kaeding with the Olde Tyme Harvest says that the final total is double what they expected when they began organizing the event. The success comes down to a number of factors, including the many sponsors, the generosity of attendees giving the Canadian Foodgrains Bank its biggest one-day donation, as well as the crop itself yielding more money than expected. Feeding the hungry and a harvest are a natural fit, and Kaeding says that the Canadian Foodgrains Bank was chosen for the amount of impact it would have. He notes that they can get the federal government to multiply the donations given. “That was the motivation for us, we could turn this into a very big project that

Quick fact: Since 1983,the Canadian Foodgrains Bank membership has provided over 1,100,000 tonnes of food assistance to people who are hungry in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Eastern Europe. could make a difference somewhere in the world.” Kaeding says that part of the reason for the event’s success is that it went beyond being a Langenburg event, attracting attendees and volunteers from across eastern Saskatchewan and western Manitoba. A large part of that volunteer base were young people, often in their 20s and 30s, and Kaeding says it was a way for them to connect with their own past, and the way their grandparents farmed long before

they came along. “Asking them why they wanted to be so involved, generally it was because their grandparents always told them stories about when they were kids and how hard they worked and what they did. They believed this would be the only opportunity they would get to participate in something they heard about for their entire lives,” Kaeding says. The event needed those volunteers for the sheer scale of the day. Kaeding says that it took around 400 volunteers and sixteen months of planning to have the event come together. In spite of the success, Kaeding anticipates that this will be Langenburg’s only Olde Tyme Harvest. “It was a lot more time consuming than any of us had anticipated. Even though it was extremely worthwhile and we are pleased with the results, it will probably be a one-off event in the Langenburg area.” That said, he also predicts similar events might take place in other places, with a town in Manitoba currently considering holding their own event in 2015.

A 65th birthday is a landmark year, and such is the case for the Western Development Museum which is celebrating 65 years in the province and in Yorkton. Susan Mandzuk with the Yorkton WDM says that the anniversary is exciting for the museum, and it shows that even long after the museum’s founding, it is still important to keeping Saskatchewan’s history alive. “It’s nice to know that we are still relevant, and we are definitely going to make sure that we are relevant in the years coming.” She notes that it’s the staff, volunteers and WDM supporters who keep the museum an exciting place to visit. She says they are a big part of the facilities continued success. In the future, the museum’s mandate will expand to include more content from the immediate post-WWII era, to ensure that part of the province’s history continues to be preserved. What will remain consistent is the Yorkton museum’s mandate, that being telling the story of people. The goal of the museum when it was founded was to preserve the abandoned farm machinery in 1949, but it has since grown to tell the story of much more. “Originally people thought that the WDM was a tractor museum, but we’re much more than that. We’re focusing on moving forward and collecting from the different decades.” Continued on Page 7.

Flu vaccines limited Vaccines supplies are limited and as a result the Sunrise Health Region has announced they will not be readily available for all. The region is now strictly targeting young children, pregnant women and those who are immuno-compromised. Immunizations for the remainder of the influenza season are by appointment only, due to a world-wide limited supply of influenza vaccine. Saskatchewan is reserving the limited amount that is available to continue immunization of those most at risk. HINI, which continues to be the predominant strain, poses the greatest risk to persons who are immune-compromised and those who were born after the strain first surfaced in 2009.

GIVING BACK – Renovations are well underway and a new and improved Boston Pizza is set to reopen in Yorkton this Friday! Renovating means change and in light of that fact, the local restaurant had to take out the old to make room for the new. Still in great shape that meant new homes needed to be found for chairs, televisions and even a pool table. Rather than sell or toss the items owners Gerry Ann and Earl Fraser opted to give back to the community that continues to support their business. Pictured, an abundance of needed chairs are presented to Lorraine Moeller from the Yorkton Boys & Girls Club. Chairs also went to the Mental Health Drop In Centre. Televisions were offered to those in need on a local “Pay-it-forward” site and the pool table also found a great home. Residents at Fairview Arms have decided to incorporate more physical activity into the facility and the addition of the pool table will be a great start to the initiative! Watch for for BP’s doors to reopen this Friday!

Children from 24 to 59 months of age will be offered immunization using the FluMist® (intranasal) vaccine, which is scheduled to arrive later this week. The Sunrise reports restrictions on immunization clinics could change if more vaccine becomes available. Check listings for updates before attending the clinics. The most current information and listings of Influenza immunization Clinics in Sunrise Health Region can be found on the website: Daily updates are also available by calling the InfoLine recording at 1-866800-5510 and on Twitter (@ SunriseRegion).

Proposed changes to support growth in agriculture sector With advances in technology affecting virtually every facet of daily living, it’s important that Canadians adapt to stay current and competitive on the world stage. Modernization in the agriculture industry is no different – as demands change, we must adapt to remain a world leader. In early December, our Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz introduced a new bill that will stimulate investment and innovation in the agriculture sector and give Canadian farmers more tools to compete in world markets. The Agricultural Growth Act will increase farmers’ access to new crop varieties, enhance trade opportunities and reduce red tape. Among the key changes being proposed in the bill are amendments to the Plant Breeders’ Rights Act. These changes will update and align Canada’s legislation with the International Union for


Parliamentary Report Op-Ed Column by Garry Breitkreuz the Protection of New Varieties of Plants, also known as UPOV ‘91. The amendments would include the Farmer’s Privilege which allows farmers to use seeds from the crops they grow. Strengthening the intellectual property rights for plant breeding in Canada will encourage investment in Canadian research and development. That in turn will give Canadian farmers more access to new and innovative seed varieties, which could enhance crop yield, improve disease and drought resistance, and meet specific global trade demands. To help Canadian farm-

ers benefit from the latest scientific research from around the world, the bill also provides the Canadian Food Inspection Agency with the authority to consider foreign reviews, data and analyses during the approval or registration of new agricultural prod-

ucts in Canada, allowing for a more effective approvals process. The bill also amends the Agricultural Marketing Programs Act (AMPA) and the Farm Debt Mediation Act (FDMA). Our government is committed to supporting Canadian farmers and our world-class agriculture industry. With these proposed changes, along with the latest science, tools and practices, our agriculture sector will continue to be an important driver of Canada’s economy, and will remain competitive in world markets.

It’s a “lotto” help for residents It could be considered a bit of a “double edged sword,” but no matter what your thoughts are on gambling, proceeds, or at least a portion thereof, go directly towards helping out with numerous worthwhile causes in the province and due the signing of a new provincial agreement, support will continue. Earlier this week Saskatchewan’s Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Kevin Doherty announced a renewed lottery agreement, which guarantees that sport, culture and recreation organizations will continue to receive and benefit from Saskatchewan Lotteries proceeds over the next five years. “We have a strong system and great partners that ensure the lottery proceeds benefit our children through healthy activities that teach them lifelong social and leadership skills. That’s why it was essential for us to renew the lottery agreement to benefit the families and future leaders of our growing province,” Doherty says. In fact, Saskatchewan lottery proceeds benefit more than 12,000 volunteer-run groups that deliver services to communities across the province. More than 500,000 registered members, both individuals and organizations, are represented by Sask Sport, SaskCulture and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association. A long-term agreement is crucial for organizations that are bidding to host national and international tournaments. There may be mixed feelings on the topic, but on the plus side, real people are seeing benefits as a results.

You want to bully? Fine then...

If only more parents were creative enough to react in ways like this, we may not have near the problems with bullying that we do today. Way to go mom! When a Utah mom learned her daughter was being a bully in school she made sure she did something about it and kudos to her for what she did. Ally (the mom) received an email from her daughter’s teacher. It said her daughter (Kaylee) had been relentlessly teasing a fellow student for the past several weeks because of the way she dressed. The teasing was so bad in fact, the student no longer wanted to attend school. “She would take her out on the playground and call her names, and tell her she was a slob and tell her she dressed like a sleaze,” Ally says. “Someone not wanting to go to school anymore based off of something that one other little person said to them. I mean, that’s huge, that’s damaging...” And it is, especially if it continues on. We have all seen what can happen. Ally immediately sat down with her daughter to set things right however Kaylee showed no remorse, nor any desire to change her behaviour. “I thought this is a perfect moment for us to really teach her, this is right, this is wrong, which path are you

going to take? And then it’s her choice.” Ally headed to the local thrift store where she spent $50 on a number of “not so flattering or popular” clothing items. When her daughter awoke and started to dress for school she was prewith her new attire Shannon Deveau sented along with a tattered pair of sneakers to wear. She wasn’t happy as you can well imagine but nonetheless, Ally stuck to her guns and off to school a tearful Kaylee went. For the next two days she wore the hand me down clothes. For the next two days SHE became the school topic and the subject of teasing. Humiliating? Yes maybe, but Kaylee doesn’t bully anymore. “It’s stupid and it’s mean,” she now says, “and it hurts people.” “Experts” are now saying Ally went too far. I wholeheartedly disagree. And while Ally concedes it was tough to watch her daughter go through the experience, she believes it was an important life learning lesson that Kaylee won’t soon forget. “If she chooses to be a bully after this, then at some point in her life, she’s going to be on the other side and she’ll know what it really feels like. And I think now that she knows what it feels like, and she doesn’t want to be that person anymore because she knows how hurtful it is.” Good job Ally! Mission accomplished. Problem solved.

The way I see it... Column

Quebec is going to an extreme to prove a point To an outsider, Quebec’s Bill 60 appears to be a strange game of chicken. The bill, which seeks to ban religious symbols in government workplaces, looks like it was specifically designed to anger as many people as possible to prove a point. The province has people who want to ban certain religious dress – specifically from religions they don’t like, of course – while they get to keep their own symbols. Since the province can’t do that, they’ve taken the approach of banning everything, forcing people to unite with their one-time enemies. Of course, that’s not how the motivations are being played, it would be a dangerous tactic to actively say that you introduced a bill with the sole purpose of making people mad. Also, since it continues to go forward, it’s not quite clear who is actually winning this confrontation, or if it’s a case where everyone, eventually, will lose in some way. It certainly isn’t a way to drum up support for the government, as there are enough people bothered by the law. The only clear motivation is a deliberate attempt to anger people against a common enemy, and then force them to realize that they’re not all that different, one man’s cross is another woman’s habib is another man’s turban. It’s even kind of working, but not at the level needed stop the bill.

Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger It does raise the question of whether religious symbols should be allowed in the workplace. The answer to that question is yes, provided that there are no safety issues related to wearing that article of clothing or jewelry. Extra loose fabric and chains should not be worn by anyone whose job involves operating a lathe, for example, because that could be dangerous, no matter how symbolic and important that piece is. It is not going to be a big deal to most people who work in government, so it should be fine. Any decisions of that nature depend on what the actual job entails. The problem comes when people want to discriminate based on religion, and use the garment as an excuse.

After all, one of the women opposing the bill was attacked in the subway, by someone attempting to remove her habib and tell her she does not belong in Quebec. This is the indirect source of the law in the first place, people who see others with a culture they don’t understand, and then objecting – often with force – rather than putting in an effort to understand why they are wearing what they are. By banning everything, the Quebec government is going the distance in proving a point. This is the only way they can do it, they must either ban everything or ban nothing at all, half measures count as discrimination. In this case, it also makes people take notice, for they are also being affected. It should, hopefully, make them realize what they are doing and how that affects other people. It is a silly and juvenile way to get that across, but so long as people are attacking others for what they wear, the province’s population might just be silly and juvenile enough to need that lesson. With that said, I can’t see the law lasting, and I hope nowhere else in the country attempts the same thing. I’m of the mind that so long as a cultural difference does no harm, there is no reason for the government to get involved, even if it’s just in the case of their own employees.

Your letter of the Week

Paying docs more won’t help

Thankful for small business

To the Editor:

The amount paid to doctors in Canada increased by $7.5 billion in the last five years to reach a total of over $30 billion per year. Put another way, the growth rate of physician remuneration expenditures – what our health system pays to doctors for health services – was more than twice the rate at which the Canadian economy grew over the same period (around 6.4 per cent per year). No one would argue that this is a lot of money in itself, and a growing proportion of our collective wealth. At the same time, every new report on our healthcare system, including from the Commonwealth Fund, the Health Council of Canada and the College of Family Physicians of Canada, continues to highlight what little progress has been made regarding the accessibility of healthcare. So what’s going on here? We invest ever-growing sums in physician remuneration without noticing much improvement in the availability of medical visits and procedures. How can this be the case? In a new study in Healthcare Policy published recently, we used the latest available data from Quebec to analyze the evolution of medical services costs and volumes of care over five years (from 2007 to 2011) to gain a better understanding of the relationship between physician fees and availability of care. The results prompt some important policy considerations. In 2007, after bitter negotiations

between physician federations and the Quebec government, agreements were signed to significantly increase fee schedules. Over the following five years the average cost per service rose by 25 per cent for family doctors and 32 per cent for specialists (the term service describes all medical care provided, such as visits, procedures and tests). At the same time, the number of physicians per capita grew by 8 per cent to reach an unprecedented number of physicians in the province. These two trends combined increased medical compensation expenditures in Quebec by $1.5 billion over five years. After controlling for inflation, these investments translate into average net income increases of 15 per cent for family doctors and 25 per cent for specialists. As these are inflationcontrolled figures, these are real increases in purchasing power. What’s interesting, however, is that during this same period, the average number of specialized service visits per inhabitant stagnated, and the average number of family medicine service visits per person actually dropped by five per cent. The average number of services provided by each physician also dropped by five per cent for specialists and seven per cent for family doctors. In other words, the net impact of investing an additional $1.5 billion dollars – no small sum – in physician remuneration was either a stagnation or reduction in the volume of services provided to the population. Moreover, the

decrease in the average volume of services per physician offsets most or all of the increases in the overall number of physicians. Unfortunately, this result is not surprising. In fact, it is highly convergent with what is known in economics as the ‘target income hypothesis.’ This hypothesis posits that people aim for a given level of income and will adjust their work load to reach it. This implies, among other things, that when the rate paid for a given amount of work increases, workers might choose to work less rather than to increase their revenues. What our study shows is that as the unit price of services rose, physicians – who are overwhelmingly self-employed entrepreneurs – adjusted their work practice to improve their quality of life instead of opting to earn more. End result: Quebecers did not see an improvement in health service availability despite a sizeable new investment in healthcare, a failure of the policy goal. If the current investments in physician compensation were intended to improve the accessibility of medical care, then the data from Quebec show that this was a policy failure. Not only was there no improvement, but the problem actually worsened. It is time that investments such as these are monitored, analysed and publicly debated. Throwing money at a problem, is not always a solution. Damien Contandriopoulos, Troy Media Corp.

What is obvious and what is not...

To the Editor:

In each of Stephen Harper’s year-end media interviews, he repeated a pair of well-rehearsed lines that he used frequently in the House of Commons last fall. His purpose was to avoid answering questions about his ethics scandal. First, he says it’s “obvious” that he didn’t know a thing about the outrageous $90,000 payment made by his Chief-ofStaff (Nigel Wright) to affect the behaviour of a sitting legislator (Mike Duffy). And second, he claims it’s also “obvious” that if he had known, he would have stopped it. Is the mere assertion of “obviousness” enough? • Why has the Prime Minister’s story fluctuated so much? First, he insisted Mr. Wright acted entirely alone, but later he abandoned that claim when the police flatly contradicted him. • According to the RCMP, more than a dozen people in the Prime Minister’s innercircle were linked to the Wright-Duffy affair as it steadily worsened over a period of at least six months, including senior

PMO staff, top Conservative Party officials and several Senators. So how is it that Mr. Harper noticed nothing whatsoever, when all this evolved right under his nose for all that time? • The Prime Minister is in touch with these people every day. They were dealing with the most serious political trouble his regime has ever faced. And yet none of them – not his Chiefof-Staff, not his lawyer, not his Issues Manager, not his fundraiser, none of them – mentioned a single word about what was going on, and even worse, he never asked? • When the Prime Minister told Mr. Wright that a plan to deal with Duffy was “good to go”, what specifically was he approving? • What control did the PMO exercise over the Conservative Senators who edited a report on Duffy to whitewash its findings? • Mr. Harper asserted there was no paper-trail anywhere in government relevant to this ethics scandal, but again the police contradicted him. They found hundreds of pages of evidence, and

are looking for more – including the email records of PMO lawyer Benjamin Perrin, which somehow got lost for six months while the Mounties kept asking for them at least three time. How did that happen? • Why has Mr. Harper blocked Parliament from hearing testimony about alleged back-channel attempts by Conservative Senator Gerstein to intervene in the Duffy audit? And how did the PMO come to know the results of that audit in advance? All the unanswered questions raise serious doubts. And so does this government’s track-record on other ethical matters. Long before Duffy and Wright, there were those troubling deals with Allan Riddell and Chuck Cadman? There were strange appointments handed out to people like Bruce Carson (now facing influence peddling charges) and Arthur Porter (now in jail in Panama). And there was that “Inand-Out” election financing scam which triggered a police raid on Conservative Party headquarters, charges of law-breaking, a guilty plea and convic-

tion, and the heaviest fine the law allows. There was also Peter Penashue, Mr. Harper’s MP for Labrador, forced to resign in disgrace, and Dean Del Mastro, Harper’s former Parliamentary Secretary, going to trial on four counts of violating the Elections Act. Don’t forget thousands of illegal phone calls in Guelph, and perhaps as many as 200 other ridings, for which at least one Conservative operative is currently being prosecuted. And there was that damning Federal Court judgement which explicitly found that electoral fraud took place in several constituencies in the 2011 election, with the most likely source of the data used to commit that fraud being the Conservative Party’s super-secret computer system. All this on Mr. Harper’s watch. Given this history, all the unanswered questions and the incessant stonewalling, it’s not unreasonable for Canadians to be skeptical about things that are said to be “obvious”. Ralph Goodale, MP, Wascana, SK.

Belt-tightening is not the Canadian answer To the Editor:

When consumers cannot spend because they are too heavily indebted, when a trade deficit draws money out of our economy, and when cash-flush corporations will not invest here because of lack of demand, there is only one source

left to kick-start the economy: bigger federal government budget deficits. Some commentators and politicians assume we need nasty reforms and belt-tightening, but this solution will only push the economy into a downward spiral and yield the same results as when ap-

plied overseas in Greece. With every ratcheting up of government austerity, expect higher unemployment, increased suicides, deeper political divisions, and ultimately rioting in the streets. Larry Kazdan, Vancouver, B.C.

To the Editor: I have a love-hate relationship with the New Year. Going from 11:59 p.m. to 12 a.m. at the turn of the year stresses me out because my plans for that moment are usually pretty lame. But I love thinking through plans, goals and resolutions for the New Year. This year, my brother challenged me to boil down all my many New Year’s intentions into one word. Gratitude is my word. I am challenging myself to be more thoughtful and deliberate about expressing gratitude. I hope to apply this to all areas of my life, but for this I will focus on my connection to small business. I am proud to represent small business for a living and to have many family members who own small to mid-sized companies. But beyond that, I am very grateful to the many small business owners that I regularly interact with for making my life easier, more interesting, and more enjoyable. Here is my plan for expressing that gratitude more concretely. • Compliment business owners and their staff out loud I am often guilty of giving compliments to people in my head - where they don’t do any good in the world. Yesterday I took the time to tell a waitress that she was great at her job. She beamed and maybe it will encourage her to continue her great attitude to the benefit of the business and its customers. Everyone appreciates genuine compliments. • Be mindful about how I pay for purchases Credit cards are convenient but they can be very costly for business owners to accept. Fees to process sales range from 1.7 per cent to 3.0 per cent. So called “premium” cards like Visa Infinite and MasterCard World Elite have even higher fees. I will stick to using lower cost cards (The Canadian Federation of Independent Business has a list of regular and high fee cards on its website at I will also pay by cash or debit where possible, as these tend to be much lower cost options and continue to give my credit card a rest on Fridays ( • Never use a small business as a show room. Several small business owners have told me about “customers” who come in to look at merchandise and ask questions and then order online to find cheaper prices. One woman sells wedding dresses and says she will sometimes spend hours with a “customer” to help her find the perfect dress. Some “customers” bring her back the same dress – purchased elsewhere - so she can do the alterations! I bought a camera last week from a small-business owner who took 45 minutes with me to go through the features. He says “customers” use him as a showroom at least once a day and often tell him exactly what they are doing. Small businesses don’t exist to decorate our communities and I commit never to do this. Laura Jones, Executive Vice President of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.

Farewell to Alvin: former local honored By Derek Chesney “In my line of work, it’s not often that you can arrest somebody on multiple occasions and end up being friends with them. But such was the case with Alvin. Many of us officers, especially those who’ve worked in Central Division and the downtown area, have become like an extended family to Alvin over the years. I have yet to meet a tougher and hardier individual than Alvin. The many years of alcohol abuse and hard street living had definitely taken a toll on him, but block in and block out I would always find him somewhere in the downtown area. In recent years, the bank lobbies became his place to sleep and hang out. I spent many a time stopping in to chat with him. He was usually reading the newspaper, playing solitaire, or just killin’ time. Other times while walking the beat downtown, I would see him sleeping in a bank and tap on the glass just to make sure he was all right. It usually took a few taps, but he’d pop his head up, see it was me, let out a slight chuckle and a wink, and go back to sleep. Alvin was an interesting and unique person to say the least! I remember the first time that I met Alvin. It was in the winter of 2009 and I was a newly minted police officer. Dennis, my FTO (field training officer) at the time, and I were dispatched to a call of an older man with long hair and a beard that was yelling at people in the area of 24th and Idylwyld Drive. Dennis, who later became my central beat partner, figured it would be Alvin, and having never met him before I was excited to finally meet the legendary, wild, old fighter that all the cops talked about. As we drove up to the old train station, we saw Alvin sitting on a bench. We stopped and exited our car, and the minute he saw us he started to scream and yell at Dennis, “I hate that guy, I hate you”. He yelled and pointed his finger at Dennis and motioned for me to “get him out of here”. So, Dennis stopped in his tracks, turned right back around, got into the car and drove away. I walked up to Alvin and asked what all the fuss was about. His response was to let out a guttural growl, and told me again that he “hates that guy” and that he (Alvin) “is a fighter.” I said, “That’s ok, but you don’t hate me, I’ve never met you before.” He looked wildly at me with his long scraggly beard and walrus teeth, and in attempts to calm him down, I asked if he was any relation to Chief Gabriel Cote. He made a fist and began to pound his chest like an angry, yet proud, gorilla and yelled, “That is my family! How do you know about him?” Having spent some time in the east central part of Saskatchewan, I was familiar with the Saulteaux people and the Cote First Nation just north of Kamsack, SK, where Alvin hails from. Alvin’s ancestor, Chief Gabriel Cote,

was a prominent Saulteaux Chief who was a noted hunter and trader that signed Treaty Four in 1874. I helped Alvin up and walked him down the stairs to Dennis who had pulled up in our car after circling the block. Alvin was pretty drunk that day and he kept flexing his biceps and repeatedly telling me that he was a fighter. I told him that “I had heard he was a lover, not a fighter”. He started to laugh and said, “Well, I’m that too you know.” As we drove him back to the station, he started tapping on the silent patrolman (the divider between the front and rear seats) in the back of the car and held up a $5 bill. He said he was hungry and he wanted some hamburgers. We parked in the alley down 2nd Avenue and I ran into the McDonald’s and got him two double cheeseburgers which he happily ate on the rest of the way into detention. Funny enough, Alvin was brought in a few days later and Dennis just happened to be in detention when Alvin started to yell at him again. This time he called him a “fat guy.” To this day we never could figure out why Alvin had such a dislike of Dennis. This was my first of many, many encounters with Alvin, but when I started to walk the Central beat a few years later I ended up spending quite a bit of time with him. In later years, most of our chats revolved around the same topics. He would always tell me in the early summer months when it was getting too hot, that he was “heading up north” as he didn’t like the heat. He told me that he would travel to the Yukon or the Northwest Territories and work in a mine to get out of the heat. I’d always ask when he was leaving and he always replied, “Friday.” But when the next week rolled around I would still find him walking around downtown and he’d repeat the same story of his mining adventure. There were times, I wouldn’t see Alvin for weeks on end and then he would reappear. When I asked where he had been, he would tell me that he was in either in Toronto, Vancouver or L.A. He would always say that he “didn’t like it there” and that’s why he always came back home. I remember him telling me one time that he just returned from LA and he liked it there because there was “lots of fighting, and I like fighting.” On another occasion, he told me he had just gotten back from Vancouver. When I asked him if he liked it there, he told me it was “too big”. I told him that the Vancouver Police seem like a pretty good bunch of guys, but he told me that he “didn’t like them”. It was at this time that I asked him if he liked the Saskatoon Police. To my bewilderment, he said that he “didn’t like those guys either”. Shocked, I responded by saying, “What about me?” He laughed and replied, “Well, if I didn’t like you, I wouldn’t be talking to you,

“As an officer, you encounter many individuals, but you remember certain people because they are special, and Alvin was one such special person. Alvin was not a rich or well accomplished man. He drank daily and made the streets his home, but he was tough, he was a fighter, and he was a survivor.” – Derek Chesney

would I?” To this day I am not sure where Alvin went during those times of absence. I knew he was in Corrections part of the time, or at his sister’s in the city, but where he went the other times is but a mystery to me. Maybe he did actually venture to those cities, who knows? Alvin talked little about his childhood, merely that he had many brothers and sisters, and that his dad worked in a bush camp up by Hudson Bay, SK. There were times we would chat and he didn’t have much

to say. But on many other occasions, I had a hard time getting away. Every time I would get up to leave, he would ask me some other question I knew he really didn’t care to hear the answer to, he just didn’t want the conversation to end, or want me to go. Many other officers kept an eye on Alvin over the years and would usually end up giving him parts of their lunch, cigarettes, toques or mittens (which he would always lose), and usually whatever spare pocket change we had. I knew Alvin was continu-

ally counting his money as he would ask for some random denomination such as 63 cents. Funny enough, one day he asked my former partner Cst. Robbie Taylor for 63 cents and when Robbie reached in his pocket, he had exactly that amount and graciously gave it to Alvin. Alvin was famous for losing his glasses. Quite often we would see him in the downtown area with no glasses on and he would usually tell me that he “got into a fight”. I knew better, knowing that he likely either just lost them or that they broke when he took a fall. I usually told him to come to the station and I would see if I could find him a new pair. There are boxes of donated glasses at the station and whenever Alvin ‘lost’ his, I would go grab a few pairs, a newspaper and then do a reading test with him till he could find a pair that worked. If possible, I would set him up with an old pair of sunglasses as well. He was always pretty excited about those.

I found out today that Alvin passed away a few days ago and, I admit, I feel an emptiness. It will be different as I walk my downtown beat knowing that he will not be in one of the banks and I won’t have to make a special trip to go check on him. As an officer, you encounter many individuals, but you remember certain people because they are special, and Alvin was one such special person. Alvin was not a rich or well accomplished man. He drank daily and made the streets his home, but he was tough, he was a fighter, and he was a survivor. It brings a tear to my eye to think of the bad things that happened to Alvin in his past to push him to lead the life that he led, but in that, I do hope that he will find peace wherever he now may be. Farewell my friend, you will be missed by many.”

Mandzuk also says that the museum will also continue to explore different partnerships, and notes that the current Omaciw – Hunter of the Prairie Sea exhibit, made possible with a partnership with the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, is a great example of how such partnerships can bring exciting content. She says that Omaciw is bringing in visitors new and old to the museum, and bringing a different part of Saskatchewan’s history to life in the city.

“It is something totally different that we have in our galleries that isn’t part of our mandate, but is part of the history of Saskatchewan.” To celebrate, there will be two big birthday promotions. First, the birthday celebrations will occur on April 6, 2014, the first Sunday after the museum’s anniversary date on April 2. There will also be birthday cake on that day. The second will see anyone celebrating their 65th birthday in 2014 gaining free admission on their birthday, as well as a gift from the museum itself.

Low fat cooking: what you need to know The first month of the year is upon us once again, and the newly grown crowds at the local gym are in abundance. Congratulations on your will power. To assist you, I want to provide you with cooking method options that will hopefully help to add variety and keep some excitement in your meals. Let’s be honest, how many more dry pieces of toast, boiled eggs, or plain salads can you stomach before you lose your faith to the burger and fries that haunt you in your dreams? Included in the top 10 most common New Year’s resolutions are lose weight, exercise more, and eat better. Although I am not a Dietician or a Personal Fitness Trainer, I can assist you in the kitchen. Having a backyard barbecue is a popular event during the summer, but year-round it provides a great low fat cooking method. Grilled meats, fish, and even vegetables always taste

great because of the distinctive flame-licked smoky taste and caramelization. Very little fat needs to be added to items to keep them from sticking and there are no pots and pans to clean up. A low-fat cooking spray applied to the cold grill before igniting can also ease the cooking process and help to make those wonderful grillmarks. One of the few health concerns is the amount of carcinogens when food is over-cooked over a flame. The blackened bits ideally need to be removed if this is a concern for you. Poaching in a savory broth or wine is a great way to not only infuse flavour but also keep your chicken or fish extremely moist. I find that poaching is very misunderstood. It is not the same as “boiling”. One of the last things I would want to eat is boiled chicken. The culinary definition of poaching is to cook gently in water or other liquid that is hot but not actually bubbling, about 160 to 180 degrees

Chef Dez on Cooking by Gordon Desormeaux Fahrenheit. Wine poached salmon with a dollop of seasoned no-fat sour cream is amazingly delicious and incredibly moist. Braising meats is another way of reducing the amount of fat in your meal. “Braising” is the process of quickly browning your meat for flavour and then cooking covered with a small amount of liquid. Inexpensive tougher cuts of meat that are cooked using this “moist heat” method over a longer cooking time will become very tender. The liquid (wine, broth, beer, juice, etc.) helps to break down the unpalatable connective tissue found in these bargain provisions at the butcher’s counter. However, braising also

It’s Crime Stoppers Month Submitted Saskatchewan Stoppers

by Crime

January is internationally recognized as Crime Stoppers Month, where more than 1,200 Crime Stoppers programs in more than 20 countries around the world celebrate their successes in making their communities safer. It was another great year for Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers – receiving almost 900 tips which resulted in 58 arrests, the apprehension of four fugitives, and the recovery of over $53,000 in property and drugs. These successes would not have been possible without the support of our major sponsors and partners: the RCMP, SARM, SUMA, Kinsmen and Kinettes Clubs of Saskatchewan, CTV, SaskTel, DirectWest, SGI, Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation, and Saskatchewan radio stations. Sgt. Rob Cozine, RCMP

Police Co-ordinator for Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers, reminds the public, “Crime doesn’t pay but Crime Stoppers does. Cash payments of up to $2,000 can be awarded in exchange for information leading to an arrest or charge.” Tips can be submitted anonymously by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), online at or by texting “TIP206” and your tip to CRIMES (274637). Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers is a civilian, nonprofit organization that creates safer communities by giving the public a way to report criminal activity to law enforcement anonymously. Founded in 1987, Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers works with the RCMP to provide anonymous reports of criminal activity in Saskatchewan’s rural municipalities, cities, towns, villages, and First Nations communities. There are four other Crime Stoppers programs

operating within the province working with their local police departments: the Regina Crime Stoppers, Saskatoon Crime Stoppers, Prince Albert Crime Stoppers, and Moose Jaw Crime Stoppers.

Herbs and spices are the way to go. Dry spice rubs and fresh herbs add a ton of flavour without adding a number of calories. Try cooking with fat-free broths. Stay away from condiments like ketchup and barbecue sauce, as they are loaded with sugar.

THE NEWS REVIEW - Thursday, January 16, 2014 - Page 11A

The farmer is trained

Submitted by Kaare Askildt, former Preeceville area farmer in training. This one of a series on getting settled in Hazel Dell. It was indeed interesting going through security at the various airports with my new titanium hip! I have learned over the years that some (not all) security personnel at the airports have a misguided sense of authority, knowing full well that if you don’t do as they say or conform to their requests, they can indeed make your life miserable, even to the point that you could miss your flight. At Saskatoon I could have opted to go into the full body scan chamber, but being shy, I didn’t want them to see me naked. Besides I’m old and stubborn (I don’t like new things!). I walked through the security portal only to have my whole body scanned by a wand. I wore a shirt with metal snap buttons, which made that wand beep like it was working overtime! My son suggested to me that next time I should opt for the full body scan chamber, but I never had that opportunity again. Coming back to Canada I had to go through security at the Cuban airport, but that went smoothly as they didn’t see me as a security threat. However, at Toronto Pearson Airport it was a different story. I advised the security people that I have a metallic hip. That combined with my steel cane and obviously my age, must have presented a real threat to the Canadian airways! A WestJet representative had pushed me in a wheelchair to save me from walking, and left me at the security portal. I was asked by a security agent if I could get out of the wheelchair and walk through the portal, which I did after presenting my letter from the doctor with respect to my titanium hip. Of course the portal beeped and I was stopped by a security agent, in fact he was the security crew supervisor. The letter from my doctor didn’t seem to have any impact at all! He had a very stern and angry look on his face. He must have had the wand dialed to very high sensitivity as my hip set the wand off in front of my body, at the side and at my back! After he ran the wand over my body, he asked me sternly to unbuckle my belt and hold my arms out. I advised him that I have lost a lot of weight and that my pants would likely fall down. I was reluctantly allowed to hold them up with one hand. Then I was asked to face the wall and lift up my feet, fortunately only one at a time, so he could scan my shoes. I guess that according to the training given to the security personnel, males over the age of 70 with an artificial hip could be a suicide bomber, so he can meet all those virgins waiting for him! On a serious note,

I strongly suggest that the airport security personnel get proper training on profiling a terrorist! Surely a male over 70 travelling with his family including his granddaughter, more than likely is not a security threat! And it was indeed obvious that we were a family travelling together as we all talked to each other at the security gate, and my wife followed close behind me through the portal! Of course I have to walk through the security portal like everyone else, and my hip will always set it off. Perhaps if I had a notarized letter from my doctor I wouldn’t have to almost lose my pants! There is an old Norwegian saying: “borte godt, men hjemme best!” Loosely translated to: “It’s always nice to be away, but it’s wonderful to get back home!” Driving into our yard we saw that the horses still had a lot of feed, our grandson Willis had kept them watered while he looked after our house. Twi-Light Tire had changed the tractor tire. Lady in her normal fashion had destroyed her blankets while at the Bark-Yard Kennel. I didn’t take us long to switch our bodies from plus 30C to minus 3C. We’re sure glad we have a wood burning stove! And now for the lighter side of air travel. A blonde got an opportunity to fly to a nearby country. She had never been on an airplane before and was very excited and tense. As soon as she boarded the plane, a Boeing747, she started jumping in excitement, running over seat to seat and started shouting, “BOEING! BOEING!! BOEING!!! BO.....” She sort of forgot where she was; even the pilot in the cockpit heard the noise. Annoyed by the noise, the pilot came out and shouted: “Be silent!” There was pin-drop silence and everybody was looking at the blonde and the angry pilot. She stared at the pilot in silence for a moment, concentrated really hard, and all of a sudden started shouting, “OEING! OEING! OEING! OE....” An airline captain was breaking in a very pretty new blonde stewardess. The route they were flying had a lay-over in another city, so upon their arrival, the captain showed the stewardess the best place for airline personnel to eat, shop and stay overnight. The next morning as the pilot was preparing the crew for the day’s route, he noticed the new stewardess was missing. He knew which room she was in at the hotel and called her up wondering what happened to her. She answered the phone, sobbing, and said she couldn’t get out of her room. “You can’t get out of your room?” the captain asked, “Why not?” “There are only three doors in here,” she sobbed, “one is the bathroom, one is the closet, and one has a sign on it that says Do Not Disturb!”

TURNER OTTENBREIT could not have returned from the WHL’s Saskatoon Blades at a better time as the 6’2” blueliner scored three goals this weekend as the Harvest were on the road to start 2014. Photo Credit: Peter Baran.

Turner Ottenbreit on fire in return from Blades By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer While the Yorkton Harvest were breaking for Christmas, Turner Ottenbreit was getting some valuable WHL regular season ice time. A chance to play at a higher level during a stretch where the 1997 born Ottenbreit played seven games for the Blades over December/January stretch before returning to the Harvest. This weekend as the team looked to start 2014 in the win column after a slump to head into the holiday break, Ottenbreit had a sensational weekend. While the 6’2” defenseman may not have scored his first WHL goal during his stay, it

appeared that the return to Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League opened up the ice for Ottenbreit as he scored three goals over the weekend for the Harvest as they visited the Beardy’s Blackhawks Friday before travelling to Saskatoon to take on the Blazers for a two game weekend set on Saturday and Sunday. Two of Ottenbreit’s goals couldn’t have came at a better time, as the Harvest scored a needed overtime win over the Blazers to end their return to action after the Christmas break. The weekend started off terribly for the Harvest as they failed to capitalize on a meeting with cellar dwelling Beardy’s on Friday, losing 5-2 and getting outshot

37-31. A late Brennan Watson goal to tie the game at 1-1 at the end of the first period looked as if it could be the momentum needed for the Harvest to start of 2014 with a bang, but instead goals from Asthon Wake and Connor Navrot gave the Blackhawks a 3-1 lead heading into the third. Ottenbreit would score to start off the third and bring the Harvest within a goal, but Beardy’s would seal the deal with Logan Schatz goal to push the score to 4-2. The Blackhawks would add an empty net goal before time expired to finish with a 5-2 win. Travelling to Saskatoon the following day to take on the Blazers, the Harvest

came out flying to a 2-0 lead to start off their two game set in the Bridge City. Goals from Jaden Kreklewich and Tanner Jeannot had all the momentum going to the visitors from Yorkton early, but the Blazers would answer back with two of their own to spin the game into the direction of the hosts before intermission. The two Blazers first period goals appeared to be the turning point of the game, as the Blazers ended up winning in a rout by beating Yorkton 7-3 on a day that goalie Carson Bogdan would likely wish to forget about sooner rather than later.

Terriers struggle without starting goalie Thomson By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer For as good as the Yorkton Terriers have been on home ice in the 2013/14 SJHL regular season, continuing their tradition of strong play at the Farrell Agencies Arena, the Terriers have been a different animal on the road. At home, the Terriers have lost just four games this season. On the road the Terriers have suffered 11 defeats, and while some of those have been in overtime, those losses have allowed the Melville Millionaires to climb ahead of them in the Viterra Division standings. This weekend those difficulties continued when the Terriers went north to play

Kramer Division opponents in the Battlefords North Stars and the division leading Kindersley Klippers on road ice. Playing against Canalta Cup hopefuls looking to make a statement with just over a month until playoffs, the Terriers could only grab one point over the two games which as mentioned dropped the team into second place in the Viterra Division. Missing goaltender Kale Thomson, the Terriers were forced to put in little used backup Riley Medves. Without their workhorse starter and playing top competition, the Terriers didn’t help their backup’s cause in their meeting with the North Stars. The team got outshot by the hosts 35-33

in a game that ended with the Terriers losing 3-1 to the third placed North Starts. Things started off well for the Terriers as they controlled the opening period, outshooting the North Stars 13-10 and finishing the period with the lead off of forward Brett Boehm’s 18th goal of the season. The Stars turned things into their favour in the second period, outshooting the Terriers 18-9, doubling them in shots. Goals from Kyle Schmidt and Blake Young would give the North Stars a 2-1 lead to end the period and they would add one more in the third on the powerplay from Jake McMillen to end with the 3-1 victory. Special teams would be

the difference in the game as the North Stars went 2/4 on the powerplay to edge the Terriers. Things would improve on Saturday as the Terriers responded to the loss with a much more productive outing against the division leading Klippers. For the second straight game the Terriers would take the lead as promising rookie Tyson Enzie scored the game’s opening goal off assists from Tayler Thompson and Brett Boehm. Enzie’s marker would be the lone goal of the period as for the second straight night the Terriers would outshoot their opponents and finish with a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes. Cont. on Page 13.

Terriers lose two straight on northern road swing

Cont. from Page 12

The repeating theme would continue as for the second straight night the Terriers would also be outshot by their opponents by a wide margin as the Klippers fought their way back after the Terriers went up 3-0 off a Boehm goal and a shorthanded goal from newcomer Riley Hunt, responding with two unanswered goals of their own. Powerplay goals from Connor Garden and Jared Pilet put the Klippers within one goal after two periods. Cushioning the blow of a furious start from the Terriers that had them up three goals. In the final period the powerplay would once again catch up to the Terriers as their achilles heel on the weekend as Brandon Lauder scored a late goal on the man advantage to send the game into overtime. In the shootout Medves would stop the first two Klippers shooters, but got no support from his shooters, eventually allowing the Klippers to steal the extra point in a shootout win. Penalty kill cost Terriers


Penalties in the end

cost the Terriers as they gave up five of six goals in their two games on the shorthand, a trend that surely won’t please head coach Trent Cassan. Perhaps it should not come as a surprise for the Terriers that their penalty kill was not up to typical form, with Kale Thomson out of action it was clear just how much impact the much improved 20 year old has on this year’s team. Hopefully Thomson will be in the lineup sooner rather than later, even if Riley Medves was capable by all accounts in filling the void over the weekend. Hunt makes debut The weekend also marked the debut of the Terriers trade deadline acquisition Riley Hunt who came from the KIJHL’s Summerland Heat, the same league that 2013 deadline acquisition Josh Ellis came from before being a solid utility forward that could win faceoffs and kill off penalties during the Terriers SJHL championship run. Hunt made his impression on the Terriers right away with the shorthanded goal to put the Terriers up 3-0. While it wasn’t the game winning goal it could have been, it

was a good sign that Hunt might be a solid role filler during this season’s postseason push. 2012/13 Canalta Cup finalists slumping out of Christmas

At Christmas time it appeared that the Yorkton Terriers and Humboldt Broncos were the odds on favorites to win their divisions at the end of the regular season come the beginning of March. So far the Kindersley Klippers and Melville Millionaires have had other ideas. Winners of seven straight games, the Klippers have rode a win streak right as the Broncos have dropped three straight games, allowing them to take a six point lead over the defending North champions at 54 points. After beating the Terriers on Saturday, albeit with Thomson out of the crease for Yorkton, it looks like the Klippers have joined the title favorite discussion as leaders of the pack in the Kramer Division. Playing two more games than the Terriers at the time of printing, the surprise Millionaires haven’t missed a beat since losing Tyson Predinchuk to the defending WHL

Champion Portland Winterhawks at the deadline. At the 40 game mark the Millionaires have 58 points and 27 wins, totals that weren’t exactly expected when the Millionaires lost half of the SJHL Awards winners last season in a campaign that ended with a Game 6 loss to the Terriers at home in the Sherwood Conference Final. With a six point cushion over their rivals in the

Viterra Division, the Millionaires may just be for real when it comes to contending for the Canalta Cup this spring. Up Next After some difficulties finding the win column in play against the Kramer Division, the Terriers will be welcoming a slate of games against the weakest division in the SJHL when they continue

their North road trip. This weekend forward Brett Boehm makes his return to Flin Flon to take on the Bombers before the Terriers visit “The Cage” when they try to knock off the Nipawin Hawks. These two games will be extremely important for the Terriers as they can’t afford to let the Mils gain any distance/ further momentum over them in the Viterra Division race.

KALE THOMSON was missing in goal for the Terriers over the weekend as they were in action during their road trip. With Riley Medves in net, the Terriers lost twice.

Riders headed to Yorkton with Grey Cup this Friday


After winning the 2013 Grey Cup at home, the Saskatchewan Roughriders and their championship roster have been sharing the moment with the entire province. Stepping outside of Regina to continue their celebration that has followed their historic win over the Hamilton TigerCats to earn the franchise’s fourth Grey Cup. This Friday, Yorkton gets their turn to join in on the party and celebrate with the Riders. Yorkton Co-Op’s grocery store on Argyle Street will be hosting a long list of Riders players, as well as the Grey Cup itself on Friday afternoon before the Yorkton Regional High School Boys Basketball team plays a group of Rider players in an exhibition game of basketball later

in the day. Bruce Thurston, general manager of Yorkton’s Co-Op Food Store mentioned that the event was put on thanks to the hard work of Darcy Zaharia in lining up the event and that the Co-Op was offered a chance to host the event that they naturally couldn’t refuse. “We didn’t have much to do with the planning of the event, but organizer Darcy Zaharia approached us about potentially hosting the event at our store and it was a great opportunity,” Thurston added saying “Who wouldn’t want to host the Grey Cup at their store.” Given Co-Op’s connection with the Riders, selling Rider related food items and team merchandise for years now, the Co-Op hosting the kickoff to the Riders visit to town seemed like a natural fit. “Co-Op has always been a huge supporter of the

Roughriders and being a part of the province we are extremely proud of the team and are looking forward to hosting the Grey Cup for the first time here on Friday,” says Thurston. The days events will conclude with a basketball game at the YRHS, as of now the tenative list of Riders making the trip includes: Brendon LaBatte Kory Sheets Carlos Thomas Jordan Cisco Chris Milo Paul Woldu Diamond Ferri Dwight Anderson Neal Hughes Mike McCullough Rey Williams Dan Clark Taj Smith Tearrius George Macho Harris

Donations will be taken for Yorkton KidSport in connection with the event, all times for the events on

Friday are currently tenative and will be ironed out more during the days leading up to the big day.

Yorkton, get excited. The Grey Cup is coming to our city.

THE GREY CUP is coming to Yorkton for an event for the first time since the Grey Cup 100 Years train tour made its stop in the city. On Friday, members of the Saskatchewan Roughriders will be in town with the trophy for a special event at Co-Op. File Photo.

Harvest open 2014 schedule on the road Cont. from Page 12

Sunday marked a final chance to end the weekend with a win to build upon, and once again with the tone likely set by head coach Dan Cross that Sunday was a must win game for the struggling team came out with an emphasis at grabbing the early lead with a hot start. The Harvest would get assisted by the Blazers, plenty of chances on the powerplay early in the Sunday matinee. Yorkton would take advantage of the man advantages early, getting their first goal of the game from Damian Bentz under five minutes into the game on the powerplay off of assists from Adam Niebrandt and Tyler Kreklewich.

The powerplay goals wouldn’t stop as the Harvest would get one more on the man advantage before the intermission as their top blueliner stepped up with his sixth goal of the season as Ottenbreit slotted home the second goal of the night off of an assist from Corwin Stevely. That powerplay prowess would continue into the second period, when again Ottenbreit would get insurance on the Harvest lead with his second goal of the game to put Yorkton up 3-0 over the Blazers. Once again, Ottenbreit was set up by Corwin Stevely before banging in a goal past Austin Swystun. With a 3-0 lead, the Harvest looked like they were off to a regulation win. However the Blazers

weren’t going to go down easy. A goal with two minutes left in the second period from Nick Lenius to put the Blazers within two goals was followed up with an extremely late goal to put the hosts back within one with just :38 left on the clock in the period to change the story of the game with the Blazers going from three down, to trailing just 3-2 within the final two minutes of the second period. Shane Sherban was the culprit for the Blazers momentum shifting goal, scoring just his second goal of the season on an assist from Liam Maley as the home team got a huge goal from an unlikely candidate to get back into the game.

Harvest win in overtime to snap losing skid Cont. from Page 14

In the third period it would be an untimely penalty for the Harvest that would once again cost them in a familiar theme for the 2013/14 Harvest squad. Their only penalty in the third period on a tripping call assessed to Adam Neibrandt would cost them as the Blazers capitalized on the tenth powerplay of the night for the hosts. David Sheppard scored his 14th goal of 2013/14 to complete the Blazers comeback from 3-0 down and steal a point out of the game as the two teams were tied after three periods. Needing to finish with a win and having five minutes of four on four action to do it, the Harvest found their hero with a minute left as the connection of Corwin Stevely and Turner Ottenbreit once again led the way for the Harvest to a goal. This time Stevely would be the leader, scoring the game winning goal off an assist from Ottenbreit to give the Harvest a 3-2 win and preventing the team

from coming back to Yorkton with two straight blown leads to the ninth place Blazers. The win would also keep the Blazers at bay for the final playoff spot that the Harvest are currently holding, allowing Yorkton to move to 26 points by winning their tenth game of the season. After 30 games the Harvest’s record of 10 wins, 14 losses, four ties and two overtime losses is still good enough for the team to be holding a seven point cushion over the Blazers for the last spot in the SMAAAHL Playoffs with just over a month to play. Eighth place will likely be where the Harvest will remain for the rest of the season should they hold onto the final playoff spot, at the time of writing the Saskatoon Contacts hold a four point lead over the Harvest at 30 points while holding three games at hand over Yorkton. In sixth, the Regina Pat Canadians are up eight points on the Harvest with 34 points. If the Harvest are to rise in the standings and earn a more favourable seed than

the eighth seed, which would have Yorkton playing first place Prince Albert should the season end today, they will need to go on a winning streak soon. A visit to Swift Current this weekend to play two games against the Legionnaires will offer the Harvest another opportunity to play catch up with the rest of the SMAAAHL playoff teams. Before that chance to play the struggling Legionnaires the Harvest will face a tough test in the third place Notre Dame Argos as Yorkton continue their road trip. Notre Dame are looking for a win to attempt a vault into first place in the tight race for the league lead and will be certainly eyeing up a game against the sub .500 Harvest team as a chance to do that. If the Harvest can manage to pull off an upset heading into the weekend, it could be stolen points to build upon towards a push up the standings. If the Harvest want to accomplish that goal, winning streaks will need to start becoming more common.

Alex Rodriguez and fellow steroid users cheats, but still greats This week was a monumental one in the history of baseball, and as usual it naturally had something to do with steroids. First, the Baseball Writers Association of America once again continued their crusade of keeping every single player that has even been remotely tied to steroids out of the Hall of Fame when they voted recently. Mike Piazza, one of the greatest slugging catchers of all time who was never directly tied to PED use was the biggest victim of the writer’s piousness over the steroid era in baseball. It was made clear once again that baseball writers want to turn their back on the era of the game that made them relevant and gave them successful jobs and careers, careers they like to protect by keeping “bloggers” and digital based journalists out of the BWAA committee. Second, the MLB suspended Alex Rodriguez for his part in the Biogenesis scandal. Rodriguez was given a 162 game suspension, likely the end of Rodriguez’ quest to chase home run records as he will now be losing a season in his prime. Further to all of this, Rodriguez has once again been subjected to the morality of the media and fans for his use of PED’s. This is the common result of any athlete being tied to doping for performance

benefits, as we like to pretend that cheating is not a part of the boyhood games we love. I am here to tell you that it is a sham. Because we love performance enhancing. In fact, performance enhancing has led the way to the modern sports landscape as we know it. It is also now a cultural craze. Even if we forget the simple fact that we as writers and sports fans have supported this modern era of continued moral sacrifice for the pursuit of peak athletic ability by watching more games than ever, and for writers promoting the sports while turning a blind eye. We also need to admit we as a culture are obsessed with performance enhancing ourselves. Millions of people each day go to the pharmacy and drop hundreds of dollars on the next magic tub of powder to go to the peak of their athletic or aesthetic ability. Creatine to increase muscle mass quickly, protein powders to sustain it, pre workout to get you “amped” and lift more weights to get built quicker. Performance enhancing, but not with HGH and steroids. Yet performance enhancing nonetheless. So why are we still so obsessed with wagging the finger at athletes who get caught using steroids

Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig and HGH to increase their body mass for performance or to rehab an injury? When the shelf life of our favorite athletes goes from the early 30’s to their early 40’s as we saw with Rodriguez and fellow now disgraced PED users in Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Andy Pettite? When we see generation defining moments

like Ben Johnson’s 1988 100 meter gold medal, Lance Armstrong’s Tour de France titles, Barry Bonds 73 home runs, over a race where the majority of the talent pool was performance enhancing or was caught performance enhancing are we supposed to pretend those things never happened? Are we supposed to sit and lie to ourselves

that it didn’t take all of the things we love about sports to achieve those great feats? Ben Johnson tore himself apart in the gym for those 100 meter times to be achieved as well as perfecting his starts, Lance Armstrong overcame cancer to become the best cyclist in the world and made people care about a sport where people rode bikes in the mountains for long hours early in the morning in the United States. Barry Bonds was one of the best outfielders of all time before steroids and took them to catch up to the rest of the league to tap into his potential as the greatest hitter in baseball history, extending years onto a Hall of Fame career that gave us something to cheer and to talk about.

Nowadays a PED violation is as newsworthy as a DUI arrest or a player injury and the use of performance enhancers to heal injuries and achieve a dream that thousands of athletes each year sacrifice to try to attain is a reality of the modern sports landscape. You can try to fight it, but the PED era is never going away. I am going to stop worrying about who is using what and keep focusing on the moments that remind us all why we love sports, not who is taking which magic pill to get better. A-Rod may be a cheater, but he isn’t much different than the rest of the cheaters that fill our sports world. In 2014 the line between cheater and hero seems to blur more and more, so why care?

Saints basketball finish third in Estevan tournament


Returning from the Christmas break, the Sacred Heart Saints basketball team had the full health and support of their “Big Three” this season as their frontcourt trio of David Ojo, Jaedon Pellatt and Carter Ruff were all in the lineup and provided big performances in each of the Saints three games en route to a third place finish during their annual trip to Estevan’s tournament

over the weekend. Sacred rode wins against Regina LeBoldus’ B team and a win over the host Elecs before falling to the Greenall Griffins of Balgonie for a 2-1 weekend that pleased head coach Garrett Karcha, even if he felt his team may have lacked the conditioning that was needed to play fully aware defense for four quarters due to the layoff of the Christmas break where practice time is hard to fit in. “We were off for a few weeks except for our


alumni game which really showed as I thought we could have played better defense at stages over the course of the tournament, but overall I was happy with how our weekend

went,” says Karcha. The Saints blew out the hosts 58-41 to start off the weekend, Pellat led the way with 18 points in the win with four three pointers on 4-9 shooting from

downtown. In the second game the Saints would lose to Greenall 57-56 despite getting 27 points from Ruff and staying tight with the Griffins all

game. In the third place game the Saints finished the weekend off on a high note, beating the Golden Suns 82-71. Brody Kormos had 21 rebounds.

A look at what is happening in the Yorkton Business Improvement District

In keeping with as much transparency as possible the YBID Board has annually published the projected budget for the year. This year is no exception and below you will see our expected revenues as well as where we are spending the dollars we have allocated. It is important to note we will be making an additional payment of $100,000. which is the final Street light payment, to the city of Yorkton. This will be the 2015 payment, a full year earlier than expected. This will mean our debt to the city for the street lights we have will be over paid in full. The YBID Board of Directors has already agreed to work with the City of Yorkton and assist financially where we can towards the Broadway Street Project. Where our finances will go, has yet to be decided, time and lots of discussion will be the deciding factor. If you as a YBID Member have any questions please call Phil DeVos our Executive Director at 306.783.9243
