Tax change – appeal fees set


RIGHT TO LIFE – Yorkton’s Right to Life group recently recognized a silent witness to protest the continued legality of abortion in Canada. Adam Fetsch, group spokesperson, says that it has been twenty five years since abortion has been legal in Canada, as well as forty years since Roe vs. Wade in the United States. Fetsch says that it’s time to reopen the issue and examine how it affects families throughout the world. “We’re getting to many hundreds of millions of children worldwide who have been killed... When it’s okay to kill these kids just before they are born, it’s no wonder we are so upside down in this world,” he concludes.

Property taxes are likely set to climb and if you have a problem with your assessment amount, it will cost you to appeal. Both commercial and residential properties are being reassessed this year and with values on the rise homeowners may not be happy with the final outcome when it comes to taxation. Education property tax is levied on the assessment of property and once that amount is decided it becomes a costly process to reverse decisions so on Monday council decided on a fee structure in the event appeals pour in. “Appeal fees were last set in 2009,” says Lonnie Kaal, the city’s director of finance. “The costs of running a Board of Revision to deal with appeals are substantially higher than those charged... These appeals tend to take 2-4 hours to hear, decide and make a decision.” Depending on the value of the property, fees will now range between $100 (for the average residential property) to $600 (for properties valued over $5,000,000). If the appellant is successful, appeal fees will be refunded. It’s anticipated assessment notices will be issued this coming March.

Council opts for closure: more discussion planned By SHANNON DEVEAU N-R Writer It’s a topic that’s been surrounded by plenty of controversy but Yorkton City council members have made a decision in spite of some opposition. On Monday council voted in favor of closing a portion of Seventh Avenue North to allow for the expansion of Home Hardware.

While the decision does not entirely seal the fate of the street, it does open the door for continued discussion with Home Hardware to see what arrangement will work best for both the business and the city. “In consideration of opposed respondents and the council’s questions at the December 3 meeting, Planning and Engineering has further reviewed the traffic impact of

the proposed closure and also sought alternatives or additional improvements that could be made to the mutual benefit of the affected parties,” said Michael Eager, Director of Planning and Engineering to council. A number of discussions will ensue between administration and store owners over the coming weeks, including the option of selling of a portion of the

street to Home Hardware while maintaining easement rights. The lone councillor opposed to the closure plan, Chris Wyatt, questions why the street can’t remain open, allowing the use of a fork lift to travel between Royal Ford and Home Hardware to accommodate business needs. Similar practices are done elsewhere in the city he says, and work well. In the end, council opted to

approve the closure so further decisions can be reached. “We can’t hinder development. Progress is taking place in our city... That doesn’t take place unless people are interested in investing. If Home Hardware is willing to invest... that provides people with jobs,” says councillor James Wilson. “I’m quite in favor that we address this... let’s move this to the next stage...”

Guides, Kins and hearts the highlight of February

February is an important month for several organizations in the city, all hoping to raise awareness. On hand at Yorkton City Council Monday evening were representatives from the Yorkton Girl Guides/Scouts groups and from the Kinsmen and Kinettes. “February 22 is a very important day for us,” said a young girl guide to council. “It is known as thinking Day. This is the birthday of both our Founding Fathers, Lord and Lady Baden Powell. At this time of year our groups get together for a special celebration to honor this special day.” As in past years the Guides and Scouts asked City Council members they proclaim the week of February 17-23 as Guide and Scout Week in Yorkton, with permission to fly club flags during the week at city hall. A flag raising ceremony will be held on February 17. February 17-23 has also been proclaimed as Kinsmen and Kinette Week in the city. February 20 is Kinsmen and Kinette Day. The local organization

have a number of events planned in light of that fact – all to raise funds for Telemiracle. A Catch and Release event will take place on February 14 and a Ladies Night has been planned for March. The event raised $5,000 for Telemiracle last year. The groups hope for plenty of local support. February is also Heart Month. “Heart disease and stroke take one Canadian life every seven minutes,” said a letter issued to council by Harry Ramsbottom, representing the Heart and Stroke Foundation. “Nine in ten Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart disease and stroke.” Each year in February the foundation highlights activities and undertakes a door to door campaign with the ultimate goal of reducing the impact of heart disease and stroke. “By doing so our city will be joining with other cities across the province – and across the country – in support of the fight against a leading cause of death, disability and hospitalization in Canada.”

DONATION PRESENTED – With every donation Yorkton’s Health Foundation gets one step closer to funding a new service for the region. Last week the owners of Penguin Refrigeration, Brad Schmidt, Grant Dutchak and Larry Harris presented Ross Fisher, Executive Director of The Health Foundation a cheque for $2,500 to go towards the addition of a new STARS Ambulance heli-pad to the city. “Emergency ambulance service affects everyone in this region, and this is the kind of service you hope you and your family never need, but you want it to be there if your family or friends need it,” says Schmidt. “We are a growing region, there are more people here all the time. There’s more traffic on our roads and more activity generally in the area. This is the kind of health service you want to be available to this area. We are very pleased to be able to make a donation in support of the new STARS heli-pad for the hospital.” “We are very grateful to Penguin Refrigeration for making such a generous donation. Strong support like that of Penguin Refrigeration helps us to send a very positive message, and helps demonstrate that the community is solidly behind bringing the STARS program here. We hope that other businesses will join with Penguin Refrigeration in making a donation,” concludes Fisher. Pictured (l-r) are Ross Fisher, Brad Schmidt, Grant Dutchak and Larry Harris.

Outbreaks lifted at YRHC

Staff at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre (YRHC) have announced they have successfully contained the Influenza A outbreaks that were declared on the 1st Floor Medicine and 3rd Floor Inpatient Surgery wings. Visitors are now allowed in these areas and restrictions are no longer in place. Residents can still help reduce the spread of illness in the community. “Cough or sneeze into your sleeve, not into hands. Wash hands often throughout the day. Stay home when you are sick. Protect yourself and others by getting an annual influenza vaccination when it is offered. “Anyone still wishing to be vaccinated for influenza can contact their local Public Health Office to arrange immunization. The Yorkton Public Health Office will hold a walk-in influenza immunization clinic each Thursday between 3:30-4:30 p.m. throughout February.

Local competes for Miss Teen Saskatchewan By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer Kennedy Todosichuk believes that she can make a difference, and she says that being named Miss Teen Saskatchewan will make it easier to accomplish that goal. The YRHS student is competing in Miss Teen Saskatchewan for the second time in 2013, with the goal of helping people around the world if she gets the title. Todosichuk first competed in 2011 when she was 15, and she admits that she was not quite prepared for her first go around. She says she might have been a bit too young to do as well as she would have liked. Even so, she received the title of Miss Teen Eastern Saskatchewan, and this time around she hopes to be

top in the province. In order to reach her goal, Todosichuk is going to be much better prepared. She has a coach in Anastasia Sidiropoulou, who was Miss Teen World in 2011, and she says that the experience of the first pageant is going to help her find ways to improve for this year’s event. She also says the most important part of the event is the interview, where the girls speak about themselves and their platform to show what they would like to accomplish in their role. “They want someone to represent the title of Miss Teen Saskatchewan and eventually Miss Teen Canada to be a really caring person. They have to have a vision and they have to do something with their title, they can’t just say they’re Miss Teen Canada,” she details. The experience of her first competition was very memorable, Todosichuk says, and she believes this will give her an advantage. She knows what it takes,

and knows what her responsibilities will be if she gets the crown. She is also excited to have that experience again, which she says has stuck with her. “When you actually go to Toronto to nationals, you meet all sorts of cool people, girls from all the different provinces. It’s leaders in the making, future politicians and really ambitious people who want to help.” Every Miss Teen competitor has a platform which they use to show why they would be the best candidate for the crown, and Todosichuk is competing under the concept of “Pay it Forward.” Inspired by the efforts to establish a splash park in Canora, Todosichuk says she wants the idea of “Pay it Forward” to become prioritized outside of this area. “If you do something nice for someone, they’re going to feel special, and they’re going to do something nice for someone else... It spreads kindness for people throughout the world.” Continued on Page 6.

Values are up but so too will be taxes It’s a good thing for those who already own a home in the province – except when the topic of taxes rolls around. The overall value of property in Saskatchewan has increased by 67 per cent over the past four years as the province’s population and economy continue to grow. Overall states a release from the provincial government, the assessment of property in Saskatchewan has grown from $58 billion in 2009 to $97 billion in the 2013 revaluation year. “This huge increase shows the strength of Saskatchewan’s economy,” Government Relations Minister Jim Reiter says. “If you own property in Saskatchewan, chances are it is worth a lot more than it was just four years ago and you will see that reflected in your property assessment notice.” Properties are revalued every four years in Saskatchewan and the property tax system levies taxes based on taxable property assessment. This could translate into big costs for Saskatchewan taxpayers however the government says they are on top of the matter. Reiter says that since the education property tax is levied on the assessment of property, the province will need to take a close look at the potential impact of the dramatic increase in property assessments on taxpayers. “It is up to our government, along with strong leadership from municipal governments, to take a thoughtful approach in order to mitigate property tax increases as a result of revaluation... We will be doing that as part of the current budget process.” Finally, we’re on par with the rest of Canada when it comes to home prices, but if we can’t afford our taxes, are we really gaining anything?

Lookin’ good Michelle, but WHO cares? It’s not the Oscars or the Academy Awards for gosh sakes – it’s the presidents inaugural speech! Should what Michelle Obama wore really take the entire focus in the aftermath? Since the president’s speech was aired I honestly have heard more about Michelle’s outfits of the day than anything the president had to say. “Why did she choose what she did? Obviously she had some statement in mind. Of course, her outfit sets the tone of what she intends to do for the next year. Why wasn’t credit given more publicly to her designers? After all, they created clothing for a pretty grande occasion...” And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Wow. I think I’d be afraid to leave the house if that much focus was put on what I wound up throwing on for the day. Seriously, we’re talking about her clothes. Do they really mean THAT much? “At her husband’s swearing-in ceremony... the U.S. First Lady wore a blue patterned Reed Krakoff shift dress and matching cashmere cardigan... Later that day, for the first reception for the 57th Presidential inauguration at The National Building Museum, Mrs. Obama shopped her closet, re-wear-

ing the black sequin Michael Kors boat neck dress from 2009 with a decidedly au courant touch: an “arm party” tangle of mismatched bracelets.” WHAT?!? She RE-WORE and outfit?! “On Monday morning Shannon Deveau there were wardrobe changes. First, for morning service at... Obama wore a custom navy grid jacquard panelled Thom Browne silk topcoat and dress with grey J.Crew pumps and a Cathy Waterman necklace... Next, for the actual inaugural address at the Mall, Mrs. Obama added a bejewelled belt over the coat and a pair of plum gloves... and swapped the kitten heels for knee-high black Reed Krakoff boots.” There’s no question she looked fantastic. She no doubt has a healthy wardrobe budget, impeccable stylists, critics, and makeup people – it doesn’t hurt that she’s an attractive woman to begin with either – but this isn’t supposed to be a Hollywood movie. The focus should be on the leader of a country that’s in a bit of a financial bind. While it’s great Michelle measured up for the part, personally, I couldn’t care less if she’s wearing Oscar de la Renta or Walmart. What’s the plan for the economy and for the nation as a whole?

The way I see it... Column

If you dialed the wrong number, you dialed me People who phone my house and get the answering machine get an odd message. In it, I list the things which my house isn’t, which includes hotels, airlines and scrap yards. This might seem very strange, and even overly specific, but there is a reason for each one of them. The hotel one is simple, a woman left a message on my machine asking to book a room for a weekend, giving a surprisingly detailed amount of information in the message. I didn’t use the information for any ill purpose, of course, but I don’t know what happened with the woman’s room, since I got the message a bit late to return her call. I hope she was able to find a room. The airline is a relic from when I lived in Saskatoon, and regularly received calls from a woman asking if my apartment at the time was WestJet. The apartment obviously couldn’t fit a jet in there, because it was small and very far from any airports. But on a monthly basis, this woman would call my house, ask for WestJet, or even sometimes a specific person who worked for WestJet. Every time, she was disappointed, for I have never worked for any airline in my life. It was so regular that I would know that it was time to pay the bills based on when this confused woman would call.

Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger The scrap yard was a more recent one, though it took an odd turn when the man phoning actually started arguing with me about whether or not my house had any scrap available. He thought, somehow that it was all an elaborate joke, rather than a mistake on his end of the line. He was eventually convinced that no scrap could be found in my modest home with its tiny yard, and presumably found the people he was looking for initially. Everyone has gotten calls from people dialing the wrong number, or has dialed the wrong number themselves. I’m not innocent, and I’m sure there are plenty of people who have been confused when I have sent a

text clearly meant for someone else. That’s fine, but in each of the cases above, it was marked by a certain insistence that the wrong number was right after all. Whether it’s just leaving a message on an unfamiliar answering machine or just arguing with the person on the line, there was this belief that somehow my small home was something much grander, or at least a place with a furnished guest room. I bring this all up because I’m strangely excited to add more destinations to my answering machine roll call, and I believe that there’s a very good chance this will happen very soon. With the introduction of ten digit dialing, once people get over the distraction of having to dial an area code for local calls, they will begin dialing the wrong area code for local calls. I know I will, and I’ll feel a bit dim every time the phone is answered by someone I didn’t intend on calling. So, at some point, I am going to get an exciting array of people insisting they dialed correctly, demanding I do various things, like perhaps book dinner reservations or ask how late my house is open. As much as I might seem to complain, at least on the machine, for some bizarre reason I actually enjoy this, and only make my strange message as a service to people. So it will be fun to see just what kind of wrong numbers a new area code brings.

Unravelling Aboriginal distrust of cops

The long road to green

To the Editor:

I used to be scared of cops. It goes back to when I was about 11 years old. Back in the 1980s, we lived on Charles Street in Winnipeg, in a big brick apartment block. We lived on the third floor, and I had aunties who lived on both the first and second floors. My parents left me at home while they went grocery shopping so I didn’t think much about it when there was a knock on the door. I opened it and realized I had a gun pointed right in my face. I don’t remember much of anything in great detail after that. I felt like screaming but I was too scared. I couldn’t even say anything. The guys said they were the police, so I backed up and let go of the door. A bunch of police came inside the apartment. The one guy pointing his gun at me put it away, and I was told to sit down. Then a police officer started asking me questions about my family, one of my aunts and one of her friends. It took a while for me to start talking because I was still shocked about what was going on. I guess the guy my aunt knew was suspected of robbing a bank and the police went looking for him at her place. They didn’t find what they wanted so they ended up at my door. I guess they thought he might have been hiding in our apartment. While they searched around, one guy asked me lots questions over and over. They’d make me repeat stuff like they thought I was lying, and I kept getting more stressed. After a while I started guessing at what they wanted me to say.

It seemed like hours but eventually my parents showed up and the interview was over. Needless to say, the guy my aunt knew ended up getting arrested, but I didn’t have much to do with it. After all, I barely knew him. Life returned to normal but I never forgot the experience. A few years later, in 1988, aboriginal leader J.J. Harper, from Wasagamack, Manitoba, was shot and killed by a Winnipeg police constable. Our parents wouldn’t

“I didn’t want my son to grow up with my old baggage... You can’t generalize and say all cops are bad, just like you can’t generalize and say all aboriginal people are bad.” let us go out at night; worried we’d get shot, too. Every time I’d see a police officer or a police car my heart would start thudding in my chest. I’d avoid looking at them, dealing with them, and even being near them. I didn’t grow up to hate cops, but I see how it can happen. If you are afraid of cops for too long – or have too many bad experiences with them – it can turn into anger, and then you hate cops. This is why we still have aboriginal people who don’t like police officers. The mistrust often starts during childhood and the teen

years, then continues into adulthood. You can see it even today in my North End neighbourhood and all the way to northern Manitoba. Mistrust created a wall of silence that’s gone on for generations now and hurts both sides; even making it tough to solve crimes when nobody will talk to you. But I never really thought much about my fear of police until I had a kid of my own. Walking my son home from school one fall day – he was about four – I looked up and saw a police car in front of us and that old fear showed up. My son felt my grip on him tighten and I realized I had to do something about it. I didn’t want my son to grow up with my old baggage. I stopped avoiding police. I made a point of looking them in the eye when I met up with them. I learned to stop seeing them as “cops” and more like regular people in uniforms who happened to work as cops. It helped a lot when I met aboriginal police officers, and other minority officers. Somehow I thought they didn’t see me as a bad person. You can’t generalize and say all cops are bad, just like you can’t generalize and say all aboriginal people are bad. I even learned more about my own family tree and took note of relatives who’d become police officers over the years. I started to see the good things they do in the community and at different events. It was a gradual process, but eventually my fears wore off. Most importantly, I don’t think my son will ever feel that way. Colleen Simard, Troy Media Corp.

Gov’t undermined sense of impunity

To the Editor:

Stephen Harper’s government is perhaps best known for its over-reaching sense of impunity – the notion that “might makes right”. They believe that a majority (for the time being) in the House of Commons should allow them to get away with anything they want, with no regard for what others believe or hold dear. They trample on people, values and institutions, just because they can. A sense of impunity leads to excessive ministerial behavior – like Bev Oda’s orange juice, Jason Kenney’s limousines, Peter MacKay’s helicopter rides to fishing holes, Tony Clement’s ornamental gazebos and sidewalks-to-nowhere in Muskoka, Julian Fantino’s misuse of government websites, and Jim Flaherty’s meddling at the CRTC. They think

they’re exempt from the rules. That sense of impunity also leads to massive mistakes like the F-35 fiasco. It’s the biggest sole-sourced, untendered procurement (against all the rules) in Canadian history. The Parliamentary Budget Officer, the Auditor-General and the private firm of KPMG have all exposed the incompetence which riddled this file since the Conservatives came to power in 2006. Worse still is the deceit. They kept two sets of figures to hide the truth. What they disclosed to Parliament and the public was deliberately misleading. And make no mistake. They haven’t changed. There’s no admission of wrong-doing. No apology. No change of course. Just a lot of spin and blather to obscure that reality that they’re plowing ahead to get the ex-

act same result as first contrived. Their sense of impunity also corrodes democracy. No questions ever get answered in Question Period. Parliamentary committees are forced to go behind closed doors to conduct the public’s business in secret. Ministers’ offices delay and subvert Access-to-Information. Omnibus bills and Closure motions are used routinely to kill debate and stymie scrutiny of legislation. In addition to the vicious attack-ads they use to malign political opponents, there’s also a systematic campaign of character assassination designed to intimidate non-governmental organizations, public servants, scientists, statisticians, Officers of Parliament, public-interest “watchdogs”, even churches and charities – to shut them up. So much for freedom of

speech! From the Parliamentary Budget Officer to the Nuclear Safety Commission, from ecumenical groups like KAIROS to Indian Chiefs like Theresa Spence, if you dare speak truth to power, this government will try to slander you. That same sense of impunity also leads to the illegal election financing scam for which the Conservative Party was investigated, charged and had to plead guilty. And don’t forget the still unexplained election irregularities in Etobicoke-Centre, Peterborough and Labrador, and the massive on-going investigation into thousands of illegal telephone calls, starting in Guelph, but potentially contaminating elections in some 200 ridings across the country. Ralph Goodale, MP, Wascana, SK.

Equal sharing of power/wealth the answer I am not sure there are words to tion, diversion of democracy and To the Editor: A recent study from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives shows that Canada’s best-paid 50 CEOs breezed through the end of the recession with earnings 235 times higher than the average Canadian income earner in 1991. For comparison, the earnings of these first 50 CEOs were 85 times higher than the average income earner 16 years before, in 1995.

fully express my feelings with regards to these stats. Some words, though, can help me express the reasons behind such discrepancies - words that we would need to name and repeat if we wish to put an end to such a situation. They are: selfishness, contempt, cynicism, corruption, abuse and patronage. And if we want to push deeper, they are: political parties financing, lobbying, propaganda, media concentra-

nonworking democracy. I am sure Canadians do not only think this is unfair. An increasing number of them must also realize that only an equal sharing of powers – which is what would be a real democracy – would lead us towards an equal wealth sharing. Bruno Marquis Gatineau, QC.

To the Editor:

I write today in response to a Facebook posting by Mark Bigland-Pritchard, former Deputy Leader of the Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) and Green candidate for Saskatoon-Nutana in the last provincial election. In Mark’s post, he strongly endorses Dr. Ryan Meili for next Leader of the Saskatchewan NDP. Mark says Meili is “the best chance we have in Saskatchewan electoral politics for a transition to a sustainable, just and healthy society... Ryan believes in real democracy... Ryan stands for indigenous rights... I also see in Ryan a combination of qualities which is sadly rare on the political scene – integrity, intelligence, dedication and compassion.” I digress. Suffice it to say that I am disappointed in Mark’s endorsement of Ryan. Dr. Meili is a fine candidate for the NDP Leadership Race, but I question Mark’s open posting on the Green Party Facebook site. Obviously this was an attempt by Mark to ferret out extra members for Meili’s campaign. Mark seems to take for granted his former position in the Green Party of Saskatchewan and his loyalty to our Party’s principles and policies, which he abandoned in a last minute rush to endorse Meili. I’ve never met Meili, nor have I met Premier Brad Wall. In all of my political dealings, I take all candidates at face value, and hope that they are seeking higher office for the altruistic purpose of trying to do right by the citizens. This is why Mark’s endorsement of Meili cannot only be seen as a rejection of myself but also of the GPS. The problem with Mark’s endorsement goes deeper than disloyalty to his former colleagues in the Greens. He forgets that Meili is running for the NDP. The political party that Meili wants to lead has done nothing when in government on democratic reform and very little for indigenous rights. As for climate change, thanks to the NDP, Saskatchewan is the worst province in Canada for carbon emissions, beating even Alberta. Here’s a revealing fact: both the conservative SaskParty and the left-wing Manitoba NDP have privatized their respective Land Titles Crown Corporations. Since I became Leader of the Green Party of Saskatchewan, we have increased our membership, begun organizing constituency associations, continued a legal challenge on electoral deposits for all Parties, and stood with and continue to aid the Idle No More movement. I travel all over the province to listen to people, and to educate them about climate change and to empower them and their communities to be self-sufficient and sustainable. Only by working together can we build the vision that we have for a prosperous and growing province. The long road towards a sustainable, just and healthy society began in the Green Party of Saskatchewan in 1999 and continues today. Perhaps that’s why even John Gormley suggested Ryan Meili supporters should join the Green Party. Even Gormley knows that the Green Party of Saskatchewan is the only real electoral choice for former New Democrats, among other disgruntled voters. John Murney Regina, SK.

Staying focused on jobs, growth and prosperity Reflecting on 2012, I’m pleased to say the year proved to be very productive for our government. Despite the financial turmoil still being experienced in other countries, our commitment to economic sustainability through job growth, low taxes and accountability remains the foundation of all we do, and Canada, in turn, remains among the world’s economic leaders. In 2012, we were able to fulfill election promises including the abolishment of the long-gun registry, and marketing freedom for Western Canadian farmers. We introduced changes to Employment Insurance to better connect unemployed Canadians with available jobs, and we have worked hard to cut the needless and costly red tape for small businesses. In response to calls by members of First Nations, in late 2012 we introduced the First Nations Financial Transparency Act. This brings First Nations governments in line with all other levels of government

Parliamentary Report Op-Ed Column by Garry Breitkreuz in Canada and requires basic financial information to be made public through annual audited financial statements. Looking ahead to 2013, we recognize that while Canada is on the right track, we are vulnerable to outside forces. Canada is not immune to global challenges faced beyond our borders, and our economy will be impacted by the ongoing turbulence

among our most important trading partners such as the United States and Europe. That’s why we will continue to seek international marketing opportunities and increase exports for our agriculture products and resources. We are dedicated to technology and crop research, and we have introduced food safety initiatives to maintain Canada’s position as a world leader of the highest quality and safest food. Our government is also committed to returning to balanced budgets before the end of this Parliament. Doing so will help us to bolster confidence and will allow us to respond to future challenges such as an aging population. Our government will continue to control what we can, our spending, and we will invest in the needs of Canadians and their families. Our focus remains on what matters to Canadians: creating jobs, promoting economic growth and securing long-term prosperity.

Volunteers needed: Sunrise hosts recruiting event By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer Volunteers provide many different services in the Sunrise Health Region, but more people are always needed to help those services run smoothly. The region recently reached out to people in order to get more people to volunteer. Suzette Szumutku Director of Volunteer Services, says that there are many different areas where volunteers are needed in the region. While there are currently 2,200 volunteers in the region,

Szumutku says there are still holes that need to be filled and jobs that need to be done. “We’ve had a number of new programs put into place, and in the winter time particularly people tend to go away, so we’re a little bit short.” Volunteers are needed to rock babies, transport people to medical appointments, deliver meals on wheels, welcome people to the hospital, work in the office or gift shop, transport the magazine cart or decorate the solarium for big theme decorations.

“There are a whole raft of things people can do. We try very hard to match what their skills and talents are, or what they’re looking to learn.” The main motivation for volunteers is to help people, Szumutku says, but there are also ways that volunteering can help the volunteers. She notes that for people who are new to the community, volunteering can help establish connections or if they’re just learning English, it will give them the opportunity to hone their language skills. “That’s something we

She says that she wants to use the title to hold events, raise money, and talk to people about Free the Children, which builds schools in Africa and helps free children from child slavery. She says that the charity is a big part of Miss Teen, and that she has been inspired by the work they do to help children. “It’s amazing what they do. Two years ago they built the first all-girls secondary school in Kenya,” Todosichuk says. Miss Teen is something that Todosichuk believes has been pushing her to be a better person in her day-to-day life, and she says that the experiences and values from the competition will have long-lasting effects for her future. “When you see something that’s wrong or that you want to change, Miss Teen Canada forces you to take a step and try to do that. When you move on to bigger things in life, you already have that drive. It also puts your foot in the door for modeling agencies as well,” Todosichuk says. The competition portion of Miss Teen Saskatchewan will on February 24.

try hard to do, to match people so they get rewards out of it.” Volunteers also get educational benefits, free coffee and free parking, she notes. Without volunteers, many services could not exist Szumutku says, and the services volunteers provide make the experiences of people in the region significantly more positive. She notes that for some people volunteers are also essential for treatment, especially if they have appointments out of town and need a driver. Anyone who wishes to volunteer or learn more can call Szumutku at (306)786-0468 or Donna Balog, Volunteer Coordinator at (306)7860764.

Finding common ground: Wolak and Donnelly


Finding common ground can lead to great partnerships and great music. That’s part what makes Wolak and Donnelly an exciting duo. Clarinetist Kornel Wolak and jazz pianist Chris Donnelly are coming to Yorkton on February 19 as part of the Stars for Saskatchewan series.

Music has always been a major part of Wolak’s life, as he was born into a musical family in Poland, the son of two professional musicians. “Growing up for me was being surrounded by music all the time, most of the time it was classical music of course. As a little boy as far as I remember I was going to my parents’ orchestra rehearsals, chamber music rehears-

Rowling says, “I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.” Something very magical indeed has happened to the families at St. Paul’s! A big thank you goes out to all of the sponsors!

als, having musicians at home, parents practicing all the time,” Wolak recalls. He says that he began on the piano from when he could sit, and started playing the clarinet at 12, an instrument he says “warmed his heart.” From there, he began performing and his education around the clarinet, and eventually became part of the Quartetto Gelato two years after arriving in Canada, before leaving in 2009 to focus on solo work. Wolak says that the partnership with Donnelly began playing together almost by accident, as they had both applied for Debut Atlantic, the equivalent of Prairie Debut on the east coast. He says that they suggested there might be a bigger audience if they performed as a duo, and they worked to find some common ground between their styles. He says that the experience in Atlantic Canada was a great tour, and that it’s not only a great collaboration, but also a great friendship. “The program is a very healthy compromise between light classical and jazz. We’re trying to accommodate each other’s styles as best as we can, while keeping our own identities as individual performers... It’s a healthy mix between more serious and more well known popular repertoire. We’re very proud that we were able to find this common ground without sacrificing our own integrity as players.”

He says that it was challenging to find the common ground musically, but the joy of the collaboration made it easier to get there and find new arrangements that suited both styles. “When the attitude is right and you’re looking forward to making music with a friend, all the obstacles can be easily overcome,” he adds. “The moment you have to be creative with something that’s written out note by note, it really pushes the boundaries of your creativity.” He says that the duo would look for pieces that

could be crossover pieces and work to make them suit each other, something he says has already delighted audiences in earlier tours. The duo also has a new album on Alma Records, Common Ground. Wolak admits that they worked a bit backwards, starting performing together but not putting together an album together until this year. Wolak says that the music isn’t aimed at any particular age group or type of audience, so everyone can get something rewarding in the program, with new interpretations of favorites and recogniz-

able songs. “I cannot recall a single performance where someone would be disappointed with the choices.” Wolak says that the duo is excited about the new tour, both sharing their music with different audiences and discovering the prairies as they travel from place to place. Prairie Debut presents Wolak and Donnelly on February 19 at 8:00 p.m., as part of the Stars for Saskatchewan series. Tickets are available at the Yorkton Arts Council, Welcome Home Floral and Gift Shop, and at the door.

Setting the table for romance: Valentines One of my pet peeves is trying to make dinner reservations on an evening when ninety percent of the general population is also trying to attain the same goal. You may be able to perform this feat without pulling out your hair. However, if bustling crowds and hurried serving staff is not your idea of romance, one can easily create this setting in the comfort of your home. Staying in for a romantic dinner can be accomplished with little effort and some creative planning. To achieve this successfully, we will focus on three areas: the menu, the table setting, and the room environment. The menu you decide on does not have to be complicated, however it should be meaningful. Your effort should reflect the compassion you have for this person. The first thought that comes to mind is to prepare their favorite food. If this is a dish that you cannot prepare at home then have it ordered in or pre-purchase parts of it ahead of time to ease your preparation. It’s acceptable to not have everything prepared from scratch if it is beyond your means and capability. Your thoughtfulness is the most meaningful ingredient. Add extra simple

courses, rather than just having a main course and dessert. Once again this does not have to be perplexing. A fresh pile of mixed colourful greens with a good dressing makes a great salad course. A few pieces of unique cheeses with some grapes and a small glass of wine make another delicious course. All of the elements to make these extra courses can be purchased direct from the store and assembled together to ease your preparation. Now you can express to your Sweetheart that you made them a “four course romantic dinner”. An example of a quick enchanting dessert would be chocolate covered strawberries. The table setting is very important and should harmonize with the mood you are trying to establish. Candles are a must, but there are other things you can do to make it memorable. Silk rose petals or heart-shaped confetti scattered on the table is a nice touch. Compliment that with red cloth napkins and a love letter tied up with a ribbon, and you will have them swooning. Make sure you have enough pieces of cutlery set to accommodate each course and use your best wine glasses. A glass of wine always

the evening, or at least part of it, with Grandparents or doing other appropriate activities. Be certain that you serve dinner in a light controlled room and have access to music. Favorite cd’s are the best option as they eliminate the hassle of having to listen to advertisements on the radio. Lastly, make sure that the room is tidy. It is much harder to set a mood if the area is cluttered with everyday items. Now that the lights

I want to make chocolate covered strawberries for dessert for a Valentine’s dinner, but the last time I tried making them it was a disaster. Even though I took them out of the refrigerator ahead of time, the chocolate was still too hard and it broke off the berries with the first bite and fell onto the plate. What am I doing wrong?

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 hard.

Dear Chef Dez:

When melting your chocolate for dipping, melt butter in with the chocolate as well. Room temperature butter is much softer than room temperature chocolate, and thus will create a more palatable bite and will adhere to the berries. I normally add 50% of the weight of chocolate being used with butter. For example, if you are melting four ounces of chocolate, then also melt in two ounces of butter.

The farmer is trained, moves on and settles in Submitted by Kaare Askildt, former Preeceville area farmer in training. This is the 27th of a series on getting settled in Hazel Dell. It seems that the hobby of distilling alcohol at home is happening around the world. My brother related this story to me from Norway. For the uninitiated, most farms in Norway are small to medium sized mixed farms, and they all have animals, such as pigs, sheep, milking cows and chickens. Most of them also grow their own veggies and some also grow grain. The oldest son, called “odelsgutt” as he is first in line to inherit the farm, was getting married, and his dad decided that he would produce the required amount of alcohol to serve at the wedding social. It was early in September, and the potatoes had already been dug. The farmer set about to make a mash from the newly dug potatoes, by dicing and cooking them, and then he added some water, sugar and yeast and let the mash sit for a couple of weeks or so. My brother, a retired Norwegian police officer, did not know how the farmer had proceeded from there to make the alcohol, or how much alcohol had been produced. What

was told to him was that the farmer had apparently emptied the mash behind the barn in the early morning hours a day in late September. The farmer’s pigs were free roaming as were his chickens, and they could not resist the tasty mash. And the conversation probably went something like this: “Mmm! Potato mash again!” Said one pig. “Remember last time we had this, you guys slept for two days you crazy hogs!” The chickens looked at the pigs and said: “Don’t be such swines! Leave some for us to peck at!” The farmer’s son had not been made aware of the alcohol production as he had been away at college. When he arrived home late that same afternoon in late September, he found three pigs laying on the ground beside the barn and thought they were dead. He loaded them up on a small trailer and hauled them out to the back 40 and covered them with a little dirt, hoping that nature and wild animals would take care of them. When he came back in the yard he also noticed a couple of chickens that seemed to be squawking loudly, walking unsteady and kept falling down, so he gathered them up and put them into the chicken coop. He didn’t say a word to his dad, as he knew

his dad was counting on slaughtering the pigs later in the fall, and he did not have the heart to tell him that they were dead. The next morning the son was surprised to see the pigs back in the yard with bloodshot eyes and their tongues hanging out on the side

of their mouths. They were obviously dehydrated, so he gave them some water. The pigs started grunting loudly, and stumbled to the back of the barn on wobbly legs to get some more of the mash. The son followed and that’s when he found what was left of the

mash, still reeking of yeast. He tried shooing the pigs away, but without success. He quickly dug a hole while the pigs tried eating some mash. He scraped the mash in the hole and covered it with dirt and rocks to the obvious dismay of the pigs that had stopped grunting, so they were obviously disgruntled. The postman had seen the pigs staggering around when he delivered the mail in the morning, and thought he better alert the animal control people (SPCA), as he thought the pigs may be suffering from some malady. The animal control officer brought a police officer with him, just in case he might encounter trouble and need back up. Upon close inspection of the pigs which included checking their breaths, the animal control officer determined that they apparently were suffering from hangovers, and wanted to know how that could have happened. The farmer and his son both shrugged their shoulders and stated that they had no idea how that could have happened. Maybe the pigs had eaten some old fruit fallen on the ground by the fruit trees. The cop started searching the outbuildings for any sign of an illegal still, but found nothing. The cop had

looked directly at a coil of copper tubing hanging on the side of a shed, and did not make the connection! He obviously must have flunked the still search session at the police academy. In any event, the chickens laid funny tasting eggs for a couple of days, and the pigs became the toast of the wedding social! There were many guests at the wedding social, and it got rather lively. My brother was invited to the wedding social, and that’s where he learned of this story. He also observed the best man approaching a local lawyer sitting at the next table making him an offer. He offered the lawyer 1,000.00 Norwegian Crowns (about $200.00), if he let him smash 10 beer bottles on the lawyers head. The lawyer considered the pros and cons for a while, but the prospect of fairly easy money won over. He told the best man to go ahead. The best man started smashing beer bottles over the lawyer’s head, and counted out loud as he was doing so. When he counted out nine, he stopped. The lawyer looked at him and said: “Hey! Smash the tenth bottle as well!” “Nah,” said the best man, “then I’ll have to pay you the 1,000.00 Norwegian Crowns!”

Fortunately however, there are 3 core elements that customers do want from you–better yet to receive them, they are willing to pay a premium. You’ll discover how to apply these 3 elements so you’re perceived less as an information provider or order-taker, and more as a Trusted Advisor. Plus much more.

A late second period goal from Tristan Frei gave the Canadians some much needed momentum headed into the third, closing the gap to one goal. In the third the Harvest dug deep in their own defensive zone with Carson

Bogdan shutting the door and holding onto a one goal lead. Like in their first meeting of the season in Regina, an untimely penalty ended up costing the Harvest at the end of the third period. A Pat Canadians powerplay late in the third period resulted in Mitch Lipon’s 17th of the season as the Kamloops Blazers prospect stuck a dagger in the Harvest’s regulation winning streak. In overtime the Harvest dominated play once again, getting six shots on goal, but Cameron Pateman continued to be solid in between the pipes for Regina, making the final six saves of his 42 save performance in the four on four overtime to end things in a 3-3 tie, splitting the points to end their homestand.

MacAuley’s hot goaltending lifts Terriers to wins By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer It seems that the Farrell Agencies Arena has been a goaltending oasis this month as some of the SJHL season’s best goaltending performances have came in the Terriers building in January. Normally the work of the visiting team’s goaltenders, this weekend the Terriers joined in on the goaltending party as Dawson MacAuley took over between the pipes for the hometown Terriers. A road loss on Thursday night to Humboldt saw the Terriers lose their perch atop the SJHL as Alex Forsberg’s three point night gave the Broncos their second win over the Terriers since Christmas and has the once favorites to finish first in the league playing catch up to try to take back first place at the end of the season. With the 7-2 defeat the Terriers needed points at home against two teams in playoff battles in the Melfort Mustangs and Kindersley Klippers and coach Trent Cassan turned to MacAuley for the start and was not let

down. A scoreless affair gave nothing much besides goaltending excellence as the Mustangs’ Jesse Wilkins reprised the role of Weyburn’s J.P. Boucher just nights prior in giving the Terriers fits by stopping everything they could throw at him. Wilkins saved 42 shots in regulation time to keep a shutout through sixty minutes while MacAuley made 29 stops in regulation time to match Wilkins. In overtime the Terriers continued their offensive barrage at Wilkins, and for 4:55 seconds of overtime Wilkins was unsolvable yet again, before Tyler Giebel put one away with just four seconds left to avoid the shootout and give the Terriers a 1-0 win with MacAuley grabbing first star for his 30 save shutout night. Saturday night saw a similar storyline as the Kindersley Klippers came into town. MacAuley was given the start on back to back nights, a well deserved gesture from Cassan rewarding him for his shutout. Cont. on Page 26

Terriers stay strong at home heading into final month Cont. from Page 23

In goal for the Klippers on Saturday was Tyrell King who started over Warren Shymko who let in five goals against the Mils on Friday night. Shymko, the former Terriers starting goaltender and Yorkton Minor Hockey product would sit out his potential last game at the Farrell Agencies Arena. With the Klippers sitting in fourth place, this game also served as a potential first round playoff preview in the Sherwood Division. After taking sixty-four minutes and fifty six seconds to score on Friday the Terriers wasted no time in getting on the board on Saturday as Curtis Oliver scored his sixth goal of the season early in the first period to give the Terriers the 1-0 lead. It would be the only scoring the FAA faithful would see on the night as King dug deep to make 42 saves, giving Kindersley more than

enough of a chance to go out and win the game, but MacAuley was once again solid in a slightly less busy night between the pipes, making saves on all 21 Klippers shots to seal the win. MacAuley took SJHL Goaltender of the Week honors for his efforts and after a tough early January stretch saw his record go from 7-2 to 8-5, MacAuley heads into the final month of the season with a 10-5 record and a nice 2.28 GAA and .916 save percentage, great numbers for a backup goaltender at any level. Nine games now remain in the Terriers regular season, with Humboldt sitting one point ahead for the all important home ice advantage come the Canalta Cup Final, wins will be equally as important to the Terriers as they are to the handful of teams battling to sneak into the playoffs this February. With first place in the Sherwood all but guar-

anteed, the Terriers will attempt to play spoiler when the Hounds come to town on Friday night. Once a meeting circled on the calendar as one that would have division title implications, the Hounds have cooled off significantly since the Christmas break and find themselves in third place with a tough date with the Mils in the first round in their future. With the Millionaires new building giving them a serious home ice advantage, the Hounds will be looking to get back into the race for second place and a win over the Terriers on Friday night would go a long way in getting some of that momentum back that they sorely need after a dismal January where they have went 4-5-1 in their last ten games. Saturday sees the Weyburn Red Wings return to town for what will be their third meeting in two weeks. The Terriers play in Weyburn during the midweek and

YUFC’s youth make strides By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer This past weekend was an incredible experience in Regina for the Yorkton United Under 8 Futurestars soccer program. Ninety teams from Manitoba and Saskatchewan took part in the largest Indoor Soccer tournament in Saskatchewan and the Yorkton United Football Club was well represented. The Yorkton United Blazers and Yorkton United Futurestars were the two teams in the U-8 division of the tournament. The first game for both teams was at 1 p.m. on Friday afternoon. The early travel and early game time didn’t faze the Yorkton teams as they came out strong with two wins to open out the tournament. The Blazers won 3 - 1 and the Futurestars won 6 - 3 to head into Saturday. The following day the Futurestars met a very strong Regina team, the REU Lynx and despite the increased level of competition ended with a 3 - 3 draw. The Blazers had things a little easier and won their contest 6 - 1. On Sunday there were hopes that both Yorkton teams would meet in the final. The Blazers held up their end and tied their game 3 - 3 to advance to the final. The Futurestars won their game 8 - 1 on Sunday. Even though both teams ended up with 2 wins and a tie, but due to the tournament point system the Futurestars missed out on making it an all Yorkton final by a heartbreaking single point. Coach Alfredo Bermudez said the kids were disappointed but he was proud with the kids effort and with how well they played In the final, the Blazers met up with the REU Lynx. Led by Carter Dumelie’s two goal performance the Blazers held a 2 - 0 lead in the game but a strong Regina team came back and tied the game up with a few minutes left. The roller coaster game went back in forth into overtime with neither team able to secure a moment of brilliance to break the tie in extra time. To encourage

scored a 4-3 win in their January 22 meeting at the FAA where J.P. Boucher’s goaltending clinic was spoiled by John Odgers and Dylan Johnson late in the third

period. This weekend will serve as two of the last four home games for the Terriers, who spend much of their final month away from the road. With a nearly perfect home

record this year the Terriers will need to find a way to go on a road win streak in the final month if they are going to catch the Broncos and grab the regular season title.

fair play and focus on having fun, every player on each team got to take a shot in the penalty shootout. When no one was able to score it went to sudden death shoot-out and Simon Hartman scored for the Blazers. The Lynx had a chance to tie it up but J.J. Quinde-Seeley parried the subsequent shot to seal the victory and the gold medal for the Blazers.

The win was impressive for the Blazers as it was their first time playing in a tournament the size that they were playing in this weekend and they came out strong and won the tournament with their other U-8 team narrowly missing out, showing the program’s strength. Cont. on Page 28

York City Classic brings province’s best basketball to town By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer

A tournament that is only three years old, the York City Classic has combined the former prestigious YRHS home tournament and Sacred Heart’s home tournament into one city wide event that brings Saskatchewan’s best 4A basketball to town every year after Semester One exams to heat up the road to Hoopla. The tournament also raises money for breast cancer research through a gate charge and “Shoot For a Cure” pink warm up shirts worn by the Saints and Raiders to support breast cancer research awareness and for all survivors and victims of breast cancer. This year an added twist is making its way into the third annual York City Classic as 3A teams enter the fold as some of the top programs from that level come to see where they stack up with the larger, city schools. Sacred Heart’s recent drop to the 3A brought in Moosimin and Caronport as two of the best 3A schools in the province will be looking to put on a show in their first appearances in the York City Classic. Sacred head coach Garrett Karcha is excited for this weekend despite some growing pains early on in the season with roster turnover seeing his top three scorers from a team that nearly upset eventual 4A champion North Battleford Composite in the provincial quarterfinals. “This is a special tournament because being from Yorkton and playing basketball in this city since the late nineties it gives us a chance to showcase our city as well as to grow the game in Yorkton so it is always a tournament we want to perform well in” said Karcha. Sacred will be looking to post players David Ojo, Brendon Welkington, and Carter MacKay to provide inside the paint offense while point guard Jacob Okeny has been constantly improving and could have a breakout tournament at the York City Classic. Karcha says that despite their early struggles, they have been playing much better in exhibition games and practice and are eager to find out where they are at heading into the final stretch before provincial playoffs saying, “We went from losing to Melville in the opening weekend to beating them the last two times we have played and have installed some new things into our system that have been looking good in exhibition games and practice so now it is a matter of executing this weekend.” Two blocks down Gladstone, the Raiders are going through transition as well with the loss of a core that went to Hoopla last year, losing to Moose Jaw Central in the semifinal before settling for an admirable third place in the province by beating Meadow Lake. The Raiders lost in the final at the York City Classic last year, playing some of their best basketball of the season before barely losing to the Vikings of North Battleford in overtime in the finals, a three pointer by the Vikings at the end of regulation prevented the Raiders from taking their home tournament. Ranked #5 in the province and buoyed by star seniors in Daniel Mandziuk and Ben Redl the Raiders will be looking to advance

out of a tough Friday night draw and challenge for the tournament crowd yet again on Saturday. Group A will serve as this year’s “Group of Death” as the Raiders will be in tough with Lumsden and the undefeated Swift Current Colts. Lumsden will be looking to upset the hosts in the tournament tip-off at noon Friday before taking on a rested Swift Current team at 3:10 in their round robin action. While barring an upset the marquee game of Friday night will be the final game of Group A at 6:10 as the undefeated Colts and the Raiders will do battle to see who advances to the semifinals. Swift Current’s up tempo style and love for the three point shot will prove as a challenge for the Raiders as well as Ian Hayes’ whose 21 points a game for Swift Current makes him a player to watch. Raiders head coach Jason Payne says the Raiders’ weekend will ultimately come down to what happens on the defensive side of the hardwood saying, “We also make defense our philosophy and if we work hard and do the things we want to do, we should have a good weekend.” This will be the Raiders first test at some of the 4A’s best and

2013 YORK CITY CLASSIC action tips off this weekend with the Raiders looking to avenge their championship game loss in the 2012 tournament. Games start at noon Friday with the YRHS taking on Lumsden. Sacred Heart starts their weekend off at 1:40 p.m. against P.A. Carlton

Payne feels that four provincial championship contenders are at the tournament in Central, Prince Albert St. Mary’s, Swift Current and themselves. In Group B the runners up in 3A and 4A provincials last year will do battle as the Moose Jaw Central Cyclones will take on the Moosimin Marauders at 6:30 (SHHS Gym) in the highlight game of this group. Estevan rounds out Group B, where Central serve as the odds on favorite to come out of the group into the semifinals. A young Moosimin team that finished fourth at Brandon’s Neelin tournament last weekend will look to three point shooters in Austin Jones and Riley Sinclair to pull off an upset, but an 11-1 Central team that’s only loss came at the hands of 5A Saskatoon program Walter Murray in the Centennial Charger Charity Classic in a 65-63 final will be tough to knock off in round robin play, Group C is highlighted Prince Albert St. Mary’s, a program that is always strong and led by one of the best coaches in the province in Dale Regel. Eight grade twelve players and two Saskatchewan provincial team members make this year’s St. Mary’s team as strong as ever and their 17-1 record makes them a tough draw for Caronport and Melville. An inexperienced MCS squad led by a new coach in Tom Schlamp rounds out the local tournament hopefuls in this year’s York City Classic. A staple in the tournament, the Cobras are building for the future and despite for grade twelve captains Cole Wenet and Tanner Bokor, have a young team that will be looking to test the waters against two very strong basketball programs in Caronport and St. Mary’s. Finally Group D brings out the Saints, who are in a group with former 4A rivals in North Battleford and Prince Albert Carlton that will be tricky for the Saints to get out of. North Battleford has experienced a drop off since winning back to back provincial titles, giving the Saints a chance to start the tournament off with a win in their York City Classic opener at 1:40 p.m. Prince Albert Carlton are the favorites in Group D as their 15-7 record is highlighted by a solid core of five senior players, one tournament title, and three second place finishes so far this season. Sacred came close to pulling off a Friday night upset of North Battleford at last year’s tournament and will be looking to play spoiler in Friday night’s final game at 8:10. The fast break offense that kept the Saints in so many tough games last season might be dead and gone, but don’t count out a hardworking Sacred Heart team from at least making things interesting on Friday night in front of their home crowd fans at the Halo Dome. Saturday will see the knockout round games with the C Side semifinals tipping off at 9:30 a.m., the B Side semifinals going at 11:10 a.m. and the tournament semifinals beginning at 12:50 p.m. with the championship game at 5:50 p.m. Another year of tight high school basketball competition on the road to Hoopla 2013 continues as the province’s best head to Yorkton to put their name in the provincial championship discussion. One of the province’s premier basketball tournaments tips off at noon Friday, and you won’t want to miss it.

Harvest flying high into February with winning streak Cont. from Page 23 The Harvest were back on the road on the weekend as they headed to Saskatoon and to Beardy’s to take on the Contacts and the Blackhawks to wrap up January. A 6-3 win just weeks prior gave the Harvest confidence heading into their Saturday night clash with the Contacts, who were looking to avenge the loss and stay in the race for second place in the league. A goal from an unlikely source in grinding centreman Crowin Stevely put the Harvest on the board first in the opening period off of assists from Brandon Kayter and Donavon Lumb as the Harvest’s role players got on the scoresheet in the first period. A slim lead was short lived however as the Contacts got one right back early in the second as Kolten Olynek’s 27th goal of the season tied things at 1-1 where it stayed for the rest of the game, ending in another single point tie for the Harvest who had to settle for leaving two extra points up in

the air after having leads on back to back nights. Carson Bogdan continued his strong run of form in between the pipes for the Harvest on Saturday, stopping 34 shots and is now posting an impressive seven wins, two ties and one loss record since December 16, becoming a huge factor in the Harvest’s turnaround. Sunday afternoon saw the Harvest take on cellar dwelling Beardy’s as the two win Blackhawks continued

their nightmare season against the Harvest. Beardy’s did strike first on the afternoon as Connor Vermeuelen’s early goal sent the Blackhawks into the first intermission up 1-0. An upset bid was short lived as goals from Eric Meyer and Jaden Kreklewich put the Harvest up 2-1, but the Blackhawks would not go down easy on Sunday, tying things up off Logan Schatz’ goal with 7:59 left making it 2-2 with twenty minutes to go, putting the Harvest’s almost

month long winning streak in jeopardy against the league’s worst team. Korwin Shewchuk continued his strong play of late with a powerplay goal early in the third to end the Beardy’s hopes before Logan Herchak and Ethan Bear both put in late insurance markers

to make it an official 5-2 win for the Harvest and extend their streak to seven games. Next up for the Harvest is a rematch with the Pat Canadians Saturday before a final three game homestand starting on February 6 against the Tisdale Trojans, eight games are left in the regular

season and the Harvest can breathe easy after a hot January put them in comfortable playoff odds, now a February where they can ride momentum into the playoffs is on deck. It is time to find out what is in store for the 2012/13 Yorkton Harvest season with eight games left to playoff time.

Rapid Fire Rants: Super Bowl weekend edition It is the biggest week on the North American sporting calendar as the Super Bowl prepares to invade everyone’s televisions Sunday as the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers in what is a matchup that requires none of the storyline creating that the media sometimes has to go through during Super Bowl “media week.” This one is 1004556547 per cent real. Two brothers as head coaches? Check. One of the greatest receivers of all time in Randy Moss saying he is better than Jerry Rice days before playing a Super Bowl for the Niners? Check. Two weeks worth of Ray Lewis quotes? Check. Two very good football teams who have hard hitting defenses? Check. This game is going to be a classic and for that reason Ruttig’s Rants: Rapid Fire Edition makes its triumphant return. A huge part of the Super Bowl media days was the discussion on player safety in the NFL. Yes, it is a great question, and yes it is sometimes interesting to hear what professional players think about the safety and future of what is a very violent sport. But, it has led to some very respectable players saying some very negative things in the media. Specifically Ravens safety Bernard Pollard, who took the time out from levelling every New England Patriots player to say that he thinks that the NFL will cease to exist with the way the game is headed. He had very good points that you can’t take concussions out of a game where coaches and general managers keep looking for the biggest, fastest, and strongest players in each scouting combine, but you have to think Roger Goodell and the NFL’s meticulous PR control program would prevent so many players in the league making negative comments about their game during the NFL’s premier media week. How annoying are the “Harbowl” puns that get thrown around each sports show? We get it their last name is Harbaugh and they are

brothers. Slightly funny once, never funny again. On a Canadian note, good job to the NHL for coming back right during the NFL Playoffs. Smart move Bettman, wonder why hockey never catches on in America. You know which two people are probably glad it is Super Bowl media week: Manti T’eo and Lance Armstrong. Just sayin. Last media points will go to Randy Moss and Ray Lewis. Randy Moss said that he was the greatest wideout of all time during Niners media day, sparking a reaction from Niners great Jerry Rice, who is considered to be the greatest wide receiver in the history of football. Now many people have wrote off Moss for his comments in the past, but this time he might actually have a point. Randy Moss has put up some crazy statistical seasons despite having a less than stellar quarterback. If you look at the season he had with Tom Brady during the 18-1 Patriots season when Moss and Brady were at their peak, he was as unstoppable as he was even at the peak of his career coming out of college with the Vikings. Now Jerry Rice will always have the numbers on Randy Moss, but when you are catching passes from Steve Young and Joe Montana, you tend to have a distinct advantage as spending most of your prime with Daunte Culpepper. It was a poorly timed quote, but the argument was there if someone who wasn’t Randy Moss wanted to run with it. Now the Ray Lewis media day distraction was a little different as Ray didn’t personally choose to make himself a distraction, but the inevitable PED rumors were bound to come to the fold when a player with a torn triceps makes as many tackles as he has during the playoffs, but the intriguing part of this story is the PED he was supposedly using. Deer Antler Velvet Extract. Yes, the antlers your grandpa has in his game room can be used as a performance enhancer to repair muscles in a ste-

YUFC win gold Cont. from Page 26 Coach Andy Wyatt says, “It was an incredible game. Tournament organizers, coaches, parents and the players were on the edge of their seats the entire game. You usually don’t expect this type of game with 6- and 7year-olds but they surprised everyone with how hard they were playing.” Coach Bermudez was impressed with how well both Yorkton teams did, “This was the first tournament experience for most of

the kids and they didn’t let the environment bother them. There is probably a thousand people going around the facility at any one time and it was the first time for most of them playing in such a big field with artificial turf but it never affected them at all. They just played their game.” Both coaches remarked the best part of the tournament wasn’t winning the games, it was the smiles on all the kids faces who played their hearts out and had a blast.

Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig roid/HGH like manner. Now if you are going to go to spraying deer ant-

ler under your tongue to play football, I think you deserve a pass, but

that’s me. Rapid fire thoughts for this Sunday’s game: Colin Kapernick will throw an interception at some point of the game. Ray Lewis will break double digits in tackles one more time and will be a force after an extra full weeks rest. Randy Moss will catch a touchdown and retire at the end of the game. Beyonce will be okay, but not spectacular in the no-win job

of pleasing hundreds of millions of people’s tastes during the Super Bowl Halftime Show. The final prediction: The 49ers will win 2420 off a dominating performance from Vernon Davis at tight end once again in a close Super Bowl that will send of two of the greatest football players from a bygone era in Moss and Lewis. Sunday is going to be a special night, enjoy it everyone.

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

2013 has arrived and again your YBID Board has already started looking at the next 12 months of activities taking place in our district. To this point we have a new elected YBID Board of Directors officially led by Gale Pelletier a Manager at the Painted Hand Casino. Gale is taking over from the very capable Ken Chyz of the News Review. Thank you Ken for your efforts in 2012 and appreciate the fact you will continue as past chair for this term. Our in coming co-chair is Ken Kohlert owner of Fuzztone Music. Taking on this role is a big responsibility and Ken has the potential of moving into the Chair for the 2014 term thanks Ken for the commitment. Back to the Board Room table for 2013 are: Corvyn Neufeld of the Cornerstone Credit Union, Marina Walls of Yorkton Hearing Services, Terry Pollock of Gifts of Gold, Andrew Rae of Xerox Canada, Cory Fransishyn a local Property Developer, and Bruce Thurston of the Yorkton Co-op. Leaving the YBID Board of 2012 was Barry Sharpe. We want to officially thank Barry for his efforts and guidance during his time on the Board. We wish him well as he continues with football, community promotion and of course, making Yorkton a great place to be. That’s your 2013 YBID Board of Directors. The Executive Director heading into his 7th year is Phil DeVos. Phil’s job is to follow the direction of the Board and represent the Board and YBID at various activities and events within the YBID District. If you have any comments or questions or invitations for coffee give him a call, at 783-9243.
