Big budget, big expenditures: Sunrise By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The Sunrise Health region has approved the operational budget for 2014-15. The budget consists of revenue totaling $214,850,836, with expenditures of $212,839,986 and $2,010,850 going towards replacement reserves and repayment of mortgages and loans. This budget comes on the heels of a budget shortfall in the 2013-14 year, which saw a reduction in the general operating fund of $1,843,071. Lawrence Cmos, board chair, says that

the shortfall puts extra pressure on in the new year, as they have to come back from the deficit and avoid a similar shortfall. The primary reason for the shortfall is employee overtime and sick time, Cmos says. Seventy-seven per cent of the expenditures for the region, and Cmos admits that the region has work to do in this area. “We certainly don’t want anyone to come to work that is ill, and employee wellness is very important to us. I think it’s a matter of monitoring our facilities to see if there are things that we can do to assist our

employees into better health.” Reduction in injuries is going to be a priority, Cmos says, and they plan on working with employees in order to find safer practices, in order to improve both employee health and reduce the number of expenses due to sick leave. The region is not looking at dramatic change, Cmos says, but they’re going to try strategies like lean management and inventory controls to save money over the year. He says that the lean management has seen benefits in care already, and they want to keep going in that direction.

There will be investments in the coming year as well, Cmos notes, all with the goal of improving patient health. There will be continued efforts in recruitment and retention of employees, which Cmos says is a challenge in today’s market. Key for the region is also investments in technology, and Cmos says that the region wants to keep up to date because it’s in the patients’ best interest, and there will be investments in that area as a result. Two big openings for the region will be the Integrated Primary Health Care Centre in

Yorkton and the Collaborative Emergency Centre in Canora, and Cmos says that the quality of delivery of care will improve significantly with the new facilities, as well as contribute to the region’s goal of reduced emergency room wait times. “The key is to have to have the right service for the right person for the right time, and a strong primary healthcare centre will do that.” The budget as submitted is balanced, and Cmos says it’s going to be hard work to make sure the budget is met and keep the quality of service high at the same time.

Annual Close Cuts event raises $36,000 By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer Brayden Ottenbreit’s Close Cuts for Cancer raised over $36,000 for cancer research, and gave a new, close-cropped summer look to 60 participants. This year was slightly different as there were more remote shaves spread out through the region. Remote shaves were held at Miller School in Melville, MacDonald School in Stockholm, Saltcoats School, Columbia School in Yorkton and Canora Jr Elementary School in addition to the final shave at Parkland Mall. The local initiatives fund also had a successful year, with over $11,250 to fund the Palliative Care Department at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre through The Health Foundation, onenight stays at the Regina Cancer Patient Lodge, Camp Circle O’ Friends, and Ronald McDonald House in Saskatoon. This money came from events such as the kickoff barbecue at Mr. Mikes, the Mother Daughter Tea Parties at Joey Children’s Apparel, the First Annual Speedghetti Championship held at Boston Pizza, the Annual 98.5FM Rock Radiothon, the First Annual Spring of Hope Tradeshow and other

events throughout the community. One of the participants in this year’s event was Brice Wiome, who raised $1,000 to shave his hair

and his substantial beard. He says that he decided to participate last year, after getting a comment from Greg Ottenbreit that his beard

made him resemble the cast of Duck Dynasty. Since his hair was almost long enough to donate, he said that he decided to start working towards

this year’s event and find support over the year, and along with two others who work at Deneschuk homes and were similarly hairy

started Deneschuk Dynasty to raise funds. The deal is that after raising $1,000, Wiome has to stay shaved for a month, something he is not looking forward to, especially as someone who does not regularly shave. However, he says he’s prepared to do it, because it’s nothing compared to going through cancer treatments. He says some of the people he’s thinking of as he’s shaving are his grandparents Nicholas and Georgina Wiome who both died of cancer. Wiome encourages others to take part in the event, and to start planning right away. “You can do a lot of work in a year.” The summer isn’t over for Close Cuts. Upcoming events include Brayden’s Lemonade Stand to be held each Thursday night during July and August from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in front of Joey Children’s Apparel, a pancake breakfast and headshave with Don Ward getting a long-overdue haircut on Saturday, June 21st at the Anglican Church in Melville, a remote head-shave and steak night in Saskatoon on Wednesday, June 25, and the Annual Pancake Breakfast at Gitko Lake Store located at Good Spirit Lake Provincial Park on Sunday, August 3.

reflect that in her work. “To me, childhood is learning and curiosity. I find that as an adult that all becomes new again seeing it through the eyes of a child. It’s almost like living your own experiences again,” Johnson says. That also reflects into her work depicting animals, which also largely features the young. She says that new life and new beginnings are something she likes to explore in her work. An artist since high school, Johnson has been focused on pastels for her work. She says that it’s the freedom of the medium that she enjoys.

A new show at the community pARTners gallery showcases the art of Laureen Johnson. In Awesome Wonder collects pastel works showcasing children and animals as they discover the world around them. Johnson says that she finds children inspiring, especially when they are learning and discovering the world around them, and her work reflects that. She says that children help her rediscover the world through their eyes, and rediscover the beauty in the world from a fresh perspective, and she tries to

“You can take it anywhere, you can do it anywhere... I just need a pad of paper and my pencils and I can do it anywhere.” Johnson says that the community pARTners gallery is amazing for an artist like herself, to show her work and get her name out into the community. As someone who also does commissions and as a new member of the community, Johnson says that it’s important to have a venue where she can show what she does and get that exposure to her work. The show runs for the month of June at the community pARTners gallery in the Yorkton Public Library.

Canada’s national conservation plan

The Government of Canada is fulfilling the commitments we have made to Canadians. The Prime Minister’s announcement of the National Conservation Plan (NCP) provides a long-term vision for conservation efforts across Canada, and brings together all Canadians who are working to conserve and restore our lands, waters and wildlife. The NCP will focus on conserving and restoring Canada’s ecosystems and connecting Canadians to nature. It provides funding for over five years for conserving ecologically sensitive lands and supporting voluntary conservation and restoration action; restoring wetlands, strengthening marine and coastal conservation, and improving access to wildlife areas and green spaces for Canadians. Under the National Conservation Plan, parks, National Wildlife Areas and other green spaces will play an important role, both in terms of protecting Canada’s natural heritage and providing Canadians with opportunities to experience nature. For example, urban and suburban Canadians will be more aware of the natural areas in their communities, and the opportunities for outdoor recreational activities that exist. It also encourages Canadians from all sectors and regions to participate in environmental conservation efforts and creatively collaborate to bring about tan-

I’m proud of the work our government has already done to conserve and restore habitats and species for Canadians. The National Conservation Plan builds on this strong record. Since 2006, the Government of Canada has made a six-fold expansion of the Nahanni National Park Reserve – a significant conservation achievement. Over 4,000 km² of ecologically sensitive private lands has been secured, and we have added an area nearly twice the size of Vancouver Island to the network of federal protected areas. We have designated three new marine protected areas, and work continues on Canada’s first National urban park. We have supported partners in the delivery of hun-

dreds of local projects to protect species at risk and their habitats. We have improved water quality in the Great Lakes, Lake Simcoe, and Lake Winnipeg. We have rehabilitated recreational fisheries habitat, and are working to clean up contaminated sites. Our role in helping Canadians to connect with nature is also not new. For example, through the My Parks Pass program, we are assisting families with young children and new Canadians living in urban areas by providing opportunities to learn camping and nature-related skills. Integral to our identity as Canadians is our country’s beautiful natural landscape and rich biodiversity. The Prime Minister’s National Conservation Plan will build a stronger Canada, a country that cares about conserving its natural heritage -- a country in which everyone may enjoy the beauty of nature from coast to coast to coast. Not only that, the NCP, while allowing us to protect and enjoy our nation’s rich biodiversity, will bring economic and social benefits for all Canadians. As co-chair of the Parliamentary Outdoors Caucus, I know how important our environment is to Canadians. The NCP encourages and enables us all to take action in our communities. Together, we will continue to find new ways to work together to protect our lands, waters, and wildlife.

Show highlights the work of students By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The Yorkton Regional High School’s annual Show and Shine has been running for 34 years, highlighting the best that students have to offer and highlight the work being done by the mechanics and autobody programs at the school. Don Tkachuk, event organizer, says that students are still excited to show off what they drive and how they’ve improved it, and it means it’s a great event for everyone involved. He says it shows the level of enthusiasm in the school, from cars to trucks to motorcycles, as well as the hard work students put into their own rides. This year, one of the highlights was a 1956 Ford Customline brought to the show by Tyson Beyko. The car took home Teacher’s Choice, and it

was not the first time it had won an award at the show. Beyko’s father brought it when he was a student, and it was even painted at the school. One surprise for 2014 was the traditional go-or-blow car didn’t actually blow, the 1990 Chevrolet Lumina ran for an hour at full throttle but was still running at the end. While they’re not going to get a Lumina for next year’s show, Tkachuk says that the car is like the show itself, it’s going hard and it won’t die. The award winners were: Best Body: Jessie Gorski, 1969 Dodge Dart Swinger. Best Engine: Colby Cross, 1965 Ford Falcon Futura. Best Stock: Dustin Balabuck, 2005 Ford Mustang. Continued on Page 7.

A crash course on sauce making Today’s marketplace is saturated with almost every type of bottled or canned sauce imaginable. Homemade sauces, in many households, have taken a “back-seat” to the readymade varieties that seem to fit into our hectic lifestyles. When we think of making sauces from scratch, many people conjure up the image of a thick gelatinous mass from one of our worst school cafeteria nightmares. However, sauces from scratch don’t have to be difficult, and can easily be the best part of a dish. Traditionally, any sauce is usually made up from one of five leading sauces or “mother sauces”. These leading sauce categories are Béchamel, Velouté, Brown, Tomato, and Hollandaise. Don’t let any fancy French names scare you. Béchamel is merely a white sauce made from adding milk to a white roux (a mixture of fat and flour that has cooked just long enough to eliminate any starchy taste). Velouté is made from adding a white stock (such as chicken, veal, or fish) to a white roux. Brown sauce is made by adding a brown stock (beef) to a brown roux (fat/flour mixture that has cooked over low heat to intensify color and taste). Tomato sauce is a mixture of tomatoes, stock and sometimes a roux, and Hollandaise is a mixture of butter and egg yolks. Although there are techniques and flavour-

Chef Dez on Cooking by Gordon Desormeaux ings that also go along with creating any of these base sauces, they are basically the foundations of many corresponding sauces. For example: a cheese sauce is originated from adding cheese to a béchamel, and a hollandaise sauce with shallots, white wine vinegar, and tarragon is a béarnaise sauce. Sauce making however, is not always confined within the parameters of these leading sauces. There are many sauces that do not fall into the gamut of these five main categories. Some examples would be pan gravies, reductions, compound butters, and purees. Pan gravies are just sauces that are made from the drippings from cooked meat or poultry. Extra stock/broth and a thickener are added to extend the flavours and to coat the finished meat product. Meat that is served “au jus” (pronounced “oh zhoo”) means that it is served with its natural clear unthickened juices, however extra stock/broth is usually added to ensure there is enough to go around. Reductions are simply

what their name indicates; liquids that are naturally thickened and intensified through the evaporation of water to create a sauce. Some of the best sauces result from letting naturally occurring liquids in a pan to just cook down. Simply season with salt & pepper, and serve. Many people don’t consider compound butters to be a sauce, but when melted, it is a flavourful liquid that enhances a finished dish. The most popular of all flavoured butters in the chef industry is “maitre d’hotel” butter (pronounced “may truh doh tel”). It is solid butter that is traditionally mixed with chopped parsley, lemon juice, and white pepper. It is then rolled into a cylindrical shape and stored in the refrigerator or freezer until needed. This allows one to cut off circles of the butter to melt on top of a finished product, traditionally steak. Endless creations of compound butters can be made however, for many other dishes besides steaks. Purees also, don’t conform in the definition of the five leading sauces.

They acquire their thickness from the maceration of a vegetable, fruit, or an array of ingredients, like pesto for example. The Internet and library are both great resources to get one started on creating a repertoire of sauces of your very own.

265 Bradbrooke Dr. Yorkton, Sask. S3N 3L3 (across from the hospital)


Dear Chef Dez: I like making spaghetti tomato sauce, but it always seems to be lacking something, and always too bland. I’ve tried just adding more salt, but then it just tastes salty. What are some ideas that I can do? Robert D. Aldergrove Dear Robert: Good sauces require depth of flavour. There are many things you can add to create this, but for a tomato pasta sauce I recommend starting with a sautéed seasoned mixture of extra virgin olive oil, mire poix (celery, onions, and carrots), and lots of fresh garlic. Add the tomatoes with red wine or stock and cook down until the flavours have intensified and the sauce has thickened. Dried herbs can be added at the beginning, while fresh herbs should only be added just prior to finishing. Also, since tomatoes are acidic a couple teaspoons of sugar will help balance everything out. Before serving, make sure to taste and re-season

Highway safety takes the focus You best obey the laws of the highway if you hope to remain ticket free. The province has announced the formation of two new Dedicated Traffic Safety Enforcement Units. Each unit will consist of 30 officers, 15 from existing provincially funded positions and 15 new officers funded by SGI. The two units are set to begin operating in central and southeast Saskatchewan later this month. “New legislation with a focus on harsher penalties for impaired driving, distracted driving and excessive speed takes effect in the province on June 27,” says Minister responsible for SGI Donna Harpauer. “Strong and visible enforcement are essential to make the new legislation effective.” According to the stats, Saskatchewan has one of the worst rates of injury and collisions on highways. At the end, say the RCMP, everyone is working toward the common goal of keeping roadways safe. The Dedicated Traffic Safety Enforcement Units will use data and analysis to focus on a number of behaviors that cause traffic fatalities – impaired driving, distracted driving, excessive speed and intersection safety. We may not like getting pulled over, but in the end, the proper focus is kept in mind and if newer, stricter rules help to keep our highways safer, it’s worth it.

Take what you get and move on

Why was there even an appeal process in the first place? That’s my question. A former teacher (former for very good reasons) from Prince Albert has lost out (so far) in her quest to appeal a conviction she wound up with that stems from a happening from about two decades ago and I say “too bad so sad” – for her that is. In April of last year Bonnie McLachlan (the teacher) was given an 18 month (conditional) sentence to be served in the community. The punishment includes house arrest, community service and a year’s probation. She took her plight to the Saskatchewan Court of Appeals but to date she’s been unsuccessful in her attempts to have the court order changed. And I would have to say, here is the big reason why... While a still a teacher back in 1993/94, a then 33 year old McLachlan reportedly had sexual relations with one of her students – a then 14 year old boy. Fourteen?!? What kind of a teacher does this? One who obviously lacks proper judgement and brains. I don’t care how mature the boy may have seemed or what kind of thoughts were going

through McLachlan’s mind at the time, this is inexcusable. For a teacher and a professional to cross the line in this manner is completely unacceptable and deplorable – under any circumstance. Not only is this exploitation as is Shannon Deveau sexual the charge, it’s rape really. Needless to say, McLachlan went to trial for her discrepancies in 2001 but for whatever reason, she was acquitted at that time. A more recent trial netted her the sentence I mentioned earlier and if you ask me, what she got is a slap on the wrist. If anything, the Court of Appeals should have come down on her harder. Teachers are the people we entrust to guide and mentor our children. Fortunately the vast majority of them are worthy of that trust. When something like this happens a definite example needs to be set to send a message and set a precedence. As a responsible adult, this teacher should have known better, no “ifs” “ands” or “buts” about it. Do the Canadian taxpayers a favor Ms. McLachlan and stay out of the courts. If the allegations are all true, you deserve every punishment you get.

The way I see it... Column

The argument over how much one should tip There’s an old saying that the easiest way to start an argument is by bringing up religion or politics. In fact, there is a third alternative, and that is to bring up the proper etiquette surrounding tipping. It’s one of the most inexplicably heated debates that you will ever see, especially as it relates to the food service industry, as people become incredibly passionate about what is the exact right amount a server deserves for their services. The debate is going to be sparked again as a restaurant opens in B.C. that does not actually allow tipping. Instead, the menu has somewhat higher prices listed, the extra income meaning the servers themselves get a higher wage. It’s a solution that goes against how some restaurants operate, which is to pay the servers as little as possible and then expect the difference to be made up through tipping. The problem with the second solution is that it is likely the entire reason why tipping has become this aggressive debate in the first place. Many servers, due to the way the system operates, are going to be relying on tips to live, it’s the bulk of their income. So, for them, cheap customers are going to be a lot of work for very little pay, and they will naturally become openly resentful of a second group, which views tips as an optional gratuity rather than a necessary part of eat-

Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger ing in a restaurant. This group does not believe tipping should be required, and that it should be a bonus rather than expected. At a certain point, both groups begin to make assumptions about the other and their motivations, and we reach a point where they all openly hate each other and are slinging insults all over the place. I have never seen an argument about tipping get handled in a civilized manner. On the face of it, just charging more for menu items and paying the servers extra is a solution. The server is no longer dependant on the gratuity, their wage is going to be predictable and stable. The restaurant remains profitable, because the menu items reflect

what people would be paying anyway – while marketed as a no-tipping rule, it’s really just integrating the tip into the price from the beginning. For diners, it at least takes any guesswork out of what the tip should be, and they don’t have to worry about being considered a poor tipper. The question is now if the grand experiment is going to work. Since tipping has become a big part of our culture, it will be difficult for some people to move away from it, just because it is a social obligation. I personally can’t imagine going to eat somewhere and not giving some kind of tip, it’s such a normal part of the process of going out for a meal. As well, it remains to be seen if it’s actually going to be advantageous for the servers themselves. In some cases, going away from tips would mean an income hit, depending on what their previous experience is and where they typically work. It remains to be seen whether or not this trend will catch on, and if tips will slowly become an antiquated notion. I personally will go with the flow, I tend to be lead by the suggested amounts on the debit machine anyway so I’m highly influenced by restaurant policy on this. However, given that the debate over tipping can get intense and somewhat irrational, I am interested to see the result of this experiment.

Your letter of the Week

From welfare to entitlement It is just not To the Editor:

If someone made $62,000 last year, had $187,000 in their bank account, and yet sought a $5,360 subsidy from government, what would the common sense response be? Most people would say that person possesses chutzpah – albeit a rather costly form of the affliction for taxpayers if the government granted the request. But such subsidy-seeking is routine in parts of corporate Canada. In the above example, I simply personalized the financials of General Motors (its parent company): $6.2 billion in income last year and $18.7 billion in cash-on-hand. Yet, over the years, the federal department of Industry has given GM $536 million, not including the federal and Ontario tax dollars from the 2009 automotive bailout. Of course, comparing income and cash-on-hand from the most recent year with past taxpayer subsidies is not a perfect comparison. In some years, GM was not profitable, especially during the last recession. But it still demonstrates the generally weak case for subsidies to business. In most years, corporations have decent profits and cash-on-hand; they don’t need help from taxpayers. More broadly, according to a recent Access to Information request I made to Industry Canada, between 1961 and 2013, thousands of small, medium and large businesses in Canada received $22.4

billion in grants, loans and other subsidies (all converted to 2013 dollars – thereby accounting for inflation). Of that $22.4 billion, almost $8.5 billion went to just 10 corporations: Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp ($3.3 billion), Bombardier Inc. ($1.2 billion), de Havilland (almost $1.1 billion and since folded into Bombardier), CAE Inc. ($652 million), General Motors of Canada ($536 million), Bell Helicopter ($410 million), Groupe Mil Inc. ($394 million), Honeywell ASCa Ltd. ($321 million), CMC Electronics ($309 million), and Litton Systems Canada ($307 million). Group the companies together, and with the exception of Groupe Mil (no longer around) and de Havilland (submerged into Bombardier), the other eight top recipients of taxpayer cash (or their parent companies) showed profits of almost $17.1 billion. Their cashon-hand amounted to almost $33.4 billion. So why did one federal department, Industry, disburse almost $8.5 billion to 10 corporations which don’t need the money? The answer, from a corporate perspective: Why not? Even if a company is flush with cash, why not buff up the bottom line if some politician is willing to use the public treasury to support your company? And of course, corporations are happy to play one province or

country against another, as politicians “buy” jobs for their region. But there is a deeper, almost tectonic force at play – the change in attitudes about what the state should do. In the late-19th century German chancellor Otto von Bismarck created what we now call the welfare state, mainly for universal health care and old age pensions. Compared to today, those were pretty modest and arguably defensible aims for a government. Since Bismarck’s time, the welfare state has grown into something much more, something more accurately labelled as the “entitlement state.” Thus, these days, corporate heads, on-the-take for decades, continue to demand subsidies from governments (i.e. Chrysler’s recent ask for $700 million from Ontario and the federal government). Meanwhile, the leaders of government employee unions demand that taxpayers pay for pension benefits negotiated decades ago when people lived shorter lives – pensions that are far more generous than anything most taxpayers will ever see. From corporation heads to union presidents, the welfare state has been replaced by the entitlement state. It’s the newest and most prevalent form of chutzpah. Mark Milke, Fraser Institute.

It’s time to put youth safety first

To the Editor:

Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba are the only Canadian provinces that don’t currently ban youth from using tanning beds. Alberta Health Minister Fred Horne says Albertans under the age of 18 should be banned from using tanning beds, but is unsure if a ban will be included in legislation his government plans to introduce in this fall; the details still need to go through a “decision-making process”. Saskatchewan’s health minister says he

isn’t sure what changes will be made, or when they will be implemented. But indicates his government is interested in Manitoba’s parental consent laws. The CCS says parental consent isn’t effective and that a survey of teenagers in Saskatchewan indicated many parents took their children to tan and paid for it. The CCS is also lobbying Manitoba for a youth ban. Dr Richard Stanwick, past president of the Canadian Paediatric Society says governments should consider

entirely banning teens from using tanning beds. “[Of] the one-third of girls who tanned in their last year of school, there were a third of those who tanned with their mother. What we are saying is a mother can’t walk into the bar and order her daughter a bottle of wine. “This is a cancercausing agent that we believe should be postponed to when someone is an adult.” A 2012 US Senate investigative report notes “despite an increase over the last decade in states requiring some

form of parental permission for indoor tanning, researchers have found no measurable decrease in indoor tanning among older adolescent girls.” When will our sun drenched prairie provinces listen to the medical experts and put youth safety before political ideology in order to prevent a preventable cancer? It’s time to send a cautionary UV radiation message to residents of all ages. Linda Jeaurond. melanoma survivor, Victoria BC.

Doesn’t that make the gov’t culpable? To the Editor: While Canadians naturally recoil on horror when confronted by the recent new of widespread rape and murder in India, they would be well advised to look closer to home. The widespread violence against Aboriginal women in BC is well documented and hardly a week goes by when more harrowing news is released to the media by various authorities. The issue is a complex one, but unlike the challenges facing women in distant countries, we can easily make a real difference

here in BC. Wally Oppal outlined one simple solution in his report of the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry: provide safe transportation between the small communities along BC’s highway of tears. While private, for profit transportation options exist, the deep poverty endemic to these communities ensures there will always be women hitchhiking despite the danger. They simply have no other option. Given the huge numbers of women that have gone missing along that highway, it’s absolutely crucial that the government

provide safe and free transportation for these women. If white women in the suburbs were experiencing the same fate, Christy Clark’s government would be moving heaven and earth to stop the disappearances. But because they are Aboriginal women, far from major populations, they seem expendable. Mr. Oppal suggested an easy solution, the government ignores it, and women continue to disappear. Doesn’t that make the government culpable? Nathaniel Poole, Victoria BC.

Could deregulating be the answer? To the Editor: Is your vehicle license fee too high? SGI paid out 51 million dollars in claims on 15,000 wildlife auto collisions in 2012 – that’s 41 per day. Another woman motorist whose death by an auto wildlife collision is

being grieved by loved ones in the Bankend area. Saskatchewan Environment and Wildlife does not realize that the outdoors has long past evolved from horse and buggy days to automobiles at 100 km per hour. By promoting the pro-

liferation of wild ungulates at large, environment and wildlife is in violation of the charter of rights which guarantees security of person. It is long passed time for a class action by the bereaved and all motorists against environment and wildlife for keeping

us in constant danger of injury or death. How to fix the problem? Deregulate hunting and the menace will be eliminated, maybe before you are a victim or lose a loved one. Clem Pankoski, Yorkton, SK.

ethical... To the Editor: I must voice my concerns here as voicing concerns to the premiere and ministers responsible falls on deaf ears as Sask Party priorities are ever changing. In the past all money wagered on horse racing would be subject to a 10 per cent tax totalling $857,000 in 2011 but horse racing would receive $1,500,000 Sask Liquor and Gaming grant that was split between thoroughbred, standardbred, and “speed horses.” In 2010 I had written a letter to Brad Wall concerning the grant that Saskatchewan horse racing receives yearly from Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming as he passed this letter on to the minister responsible, Tim McMillan. The letter I received back stated that the priorities of the government had changed and the grant would be better spent on health care and roads and that horse racing would no longer receive a grant. I expressed my concerns lately to the minister of Sask Liquor and Gaming Donna Harpauer as the previous letter stated the governments priorities were with health care, education and infrastructure but surprisingly the minister recently signed a three year agreement with Prairieland Park for thoroughbred racing at marquis downs and receive all the revenue from gambling ($857,000/yr) while harness and quarter horse racing get nothing. Interestingly Donna Harpauer, the minister of SLGA, used to be the minister of Saskatchewan Opportunities Corporation with Mark Regier, CEO of Prairieland Park holding a position as one of the directors on the board of Sask Opportunities Corp while he and Prairieland Park contribute thousands of dollars to the Sask Party. A small investment of $200,000 to harness racing would add approximately $1,000,000 to the economy of Yorkton. As this demonstrates the Sask Party is neither truthful, fair or ethical with the taxpayers funds. Kevin Siever, Swift Current, SK.

JumpStart Day raises money for local kids By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer Canadian Tire wants kids in the Yorkton area to get active and participate in sports, and their JumpStart program is about giving underprivileged kids the equipment and support they need to get active and involved in sports in the community. Melissa Honour, General Manager of Canadian Tire, says that the day was set up to get people involved and aware of JumpStart and the work they do. There was a barbecue as well as activities, including a bouncy castle, bean bag toss and face painting. Honour emphasizes that all the money raised in Yorkton stays within the region and goes to local kids. She notes that the program has helped 1,178 kids in the region since beginning in 2005, and the goal is always to help more. “That’s the beauty of this program. Every penny, 100 per cent of what we raise for JumpStart, not just today but all year round, stays within Yorkton. We love that all the work we put into it stays in Yorkton and the surrounding area.” The goal is to fund any activity that keeps kids active, Honour says, and they always want to get connected to kids who can use the help. She notes that people can call 1-877616-6600 to apply for the program if they meet the requirements, or visit for more information. She says the goal is always to help as many kids as they can, and she hopes that families who need support call the number and get involved.

JUMPSTART DAY was designed as a fun way to raise awareness and funds for Canadian Tire’s JumpStart program. Pictured above, Jason Agecoutay and Kimberly Stone with SIGA Volunteers, prepare the barbecue at the event.

Meet the Cardinal’s coaching staff

Bill Sobkow Head Coach The year 2014 marks the 15th year that Bill will be coaching in the Western Major Baseball league. 2000 and 2001 were two years spent in Melville with the Millionaires and the previous 11 with the Cardinals in Yorkton. From 1992 and through 1997 Bill coached the Calder Minor baseball team as they progressed

through the minor divisions of baseball, and in 1998 and ‘99 Bill coached the Yorkton Prairie Bandits, a Bantam team that played in the local bantam division. In 1997 Bill was selected as the Chef de Mission for the Sask Midget Provincial Team that competed for the National Championship in Stonewall Manitoba. In his playing days, Bill attended Fresno City College in 1964 and Fresno State College in 1965 to ‘68. Bill got the opportunity to play on both California school baseball teams and also graduated from Fresno State with a degree in Education. All the while, Bill played Summer Collegiate Baseball with the Yorkton Phillies, Yorkton Elks and the Yorkton Cardinals. In 1967 the Cardinals were

successful in winning the Southern Saskatchewan League championship of which Bill was part of this team. This team has been inducted into both the Yorkton and Saskatchewan Athletics Hall of Fame. He then went on to play two years with the Neilburg Monarchs in 1969 and 70 and two years with the North Battleford Beavers in 1971 and ‘72. He was also a part of the ‘72 Beavers when they captured the Northern Saskatchewan crown. From the years 19641972, Saskatchewan Baseball on the Summer Collegiate Level, saw each team allowed only 2-3 imports per team from U.S. Colleges. Other than this exception, all teams were made up of local College and non College players.

John McVey joined the Yorkton Cardinals coaching staff following his first year of Collegiate coaching at Warner University FL. The All-County selection in Palm Beach County signed with Warner in the spring of 2006. After limited playing time his first two years, his Junior year was breakout. That year he was second on the team in RBI’s, Homeruns and Batting Average. In his senior year he led the Warner Royals in Homeruns and was tied for fifth place in The Sun Conference in that category. John graduated with a degree in History and

a minor in Psychology. He is currently pursuing his Masters in Business Administration at Warner. Along with baseball coaching John is also substitute teaching.

John McVey Assistant Coach

After his playing career ended, John decided to join Head Coach Jeff Sikes and his Warner staff for the 2012-2013 season. John specializes in hitting, but also has knowledge and great interest in infield and outfield defenses. He currently resides in Lake Wales FL. The WMBL Yorkton Cardinals organization is delighted that a young man of John’s ability has chosen Yorkton as his first stop in the quest of a Collegiate baseball coaching career. Together with his first year at Warner and a very intense WMBL summer, John will have laid the early ground work toward that goal.

Best of Luck Cardinals PQ

Missing the playoffs in 2013, the Yorkton Cardinals will be looking towards a breakout season in 2014 in the Western Major Baseball League with one of the most experienced and promising rosters the ball club has seen in awhile. Pairing 2013’s most productive players with promising new recruits they are looking to get their first taste of Canada’s premier summer collegiate baseball league. The Cardinals 2013 campaign ended strong as the team showed some fight once eliminated from the playoffs, banding together and going on a four game win streak to end the year off on a positive note even if they fell two wins shy of the Weyburn Beavers for the third place playoff spot in the East. That streak near the end of the season was enough to convince manager Bill Sobkow to bring back a handful of returning Cardinals players for the 2014 season, the second year of the Western league being a 100 per cent summer league for college players from Canada, the United States and beyond. One of the positions that will be seeing the most returnees in 2014 will be the pitchers as the Cardinals are planning on bringing back several key arms from a staff that was hit or miss last year, allowing most of the standouts to return in the hope that they can perform well and mix with the new faces to put together a potent pitching staff this year. Jacksonville, Alabama’s Jeff Pool is one of those starters as the workhorse for the Cardinals who set the

team record for innings pitched in a season last year with 59.1 innings of work will return to the team. Pool’s record and numbers were nothing eye popping as he held a 4.39 ERA and a 3-5 record on the mound, but his ability to provide durability and work high numbers of innings will be something that Sobkow should appreciate down the stretch this season. Local talent Kody Rock will also return to the Yorkton pitching staff as the Canora product was announced as one of the Cards 2014 returnees this offseason. Rock was young of the younger players on the Cardinals last season, but he still managed to do some steady work in relief from time to time and even finished fifth on the team in strikeouts. Entering his second season in the WMBL expect a more productive season from the lanky hurler from just outside of Yorkton. Another notable local talent that will be pitching for the Cardinals this season will be Yorkton’s Derek Marshall as the former Yorkton Minor Baseball product and Sacred Heart grad will be making his WMBL debut after a season playing college ball at Southeastern Illinois. The former Yorkton Yankees pitcher will be looking to prove his worth against players who should be much older than the young and barely removed from high school Marshall, something that should help his development at the same time as allowing him to represent his hometown team this summer.

A new era in ball

The Western Major Baseball League has reached the status of a complete Summer Collegiate Baseball League. Beginning in the summer of 2013 eligible players must have been enrolled in Universities and Colleges throughout North America and actually anywhere in the world that is providing a collegiate type atmosphere for players. Players must have completed their first year of university and that eligibility ranges right through and includes the summer after their senior year graduation. The theory and thought process behind this is to provide players with an excellent environment in order to develop their playing skills on an equal plane whether they are Canadian or Foreign. There are approximately 25 Summer Collegiate leagues in North America providing this opportunity for young men and usually after their senior year they move on to professional baseball or professional employment. Yorkton Cardinal Summer Collegiate Baseball

Promising season ahead for the Cards Con’t from Page 11. Kameron Mizzell will also return to the fold for the Cardinals giving the Yorkton club a versatile player who had one of the best bats on the team in addition to being able to play both pitcher and catcher. Catcher will likely be the deepest position for the Cards in 2014 as the team has smartly doubled up on signal callers behind the plate, bringing back power swinging George Santiago into the fold as well giving them some of the best depth in the league at the position in terms of both experience

and 2013 numbers. Ben Grillo will also return at first base while the team has high hopes that Austin Drummonds can continue to be one of the best contact hitters in the WMBL after landing the super talented hitter from the Regina Red Sox. Hitting .343 last season he very well could be the catalyst to an offensive surge in the Yorkton lineup. If Sobkow and coach John McVey can get production from Mizzell and Santiago as he did last season the Yorkton lineup could also improve in 2014. With many new faces

and returning ones coming to Yorkton for experience in one in Canada the Yorkton Cardinals know that they will need to improve slightly to ensure that they don’t just fall short again, but with a bolstered roster it is looking like the Cardinals may just have the magic this summer. To create a winning atmosphere you first need a good roster to build around, that is what the Cardinals fans and supporters will be hoping they have on Opening Day. Bringing back the best and brightest from the 2013 season as well as a mix of promising

rookies and experienced WMBL talent, the sky is the limit for the 2014 Yorkton Cardinals as they look to open their home schedule this Friday against their rivals in the defending champion Melville Millionaires at Jubilee Park. Sports fans in Yorkton will not want to miss another exciting year of Cardinals baseball, if they do they might just miss a playoff run.

The Yorkton WMBL Cardinals have begun their 14th year of operation in this highly prestigious Summer Collegiate Baseball league. It is not without tremendous help from the community, businesses, fans and volunteers that this feat has been achieved. The level of baseball presented by the Cardinals over the past 13 years has been nothing short of outstanding, considering our very short season and distance from major U.S. Collegiate schools. The number of local players participating with the team over the past years has also been impressive. Beginning with the first year of operation, and up until today, the Yorkton area has seen no fewer than 20 players achieve collegiate baseball scholarships to further their baseball skills and education with most attaining University degrees. Some have also and still are playing professional baseball. Most of these players also played with the Cardinals. The 2014 edition of the Cardinals, as luck would have it, sees more highly skilled Canadians on the roster, almost paralleling the early years of operation. With over 850 Canadian Collegiate baseball players that have secured athletic baseball scholarships in American and Canadian Universities, the time is very right to give many of these kids an opportunity to stay and play their summer baseball in Canada. The Yorkton roster for 2014 sees players from BC, AB, SK, ON and Quebec along with Americans from Indiana, New York, Florida, Alabama and Georgia. For those that appreciate and recognize quality collegiate baseball, the Cardinals welcome you to a brand new season!

Best of Luck this Season Cardinals!

Gettin in the Game enters Year Two By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer

In 2013 Yorkton Minor Football decided to start the “Gettin in the Game” program, a new initiative designed to get special needs children the same opportunities to participate on road trips for local sports clubs. The program was inspired by Yorkton Regional High School student Tyler Senchuk, whose love for the school’s football team led to the inspiration for Yorkton Minor Football to start a program to raise money for not just Tyler, but for any special needs students in the community who want to be apart of a team and need funding for special assistance to do so. In 2013 Chad Nehring, a former Raiders linebacker who is playing pro hockey in the ECHL, auctioned off a game-worn Idaho Steelheads jersey for $3,800 as part of the Raiders’ annual Football Night in Saskatchewan where Saskatchewan Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin was the keynote speaker. Those funds helped Tyler enjoy road trips with the YRHS football team as they went all the way to the Moose Jaw High School Football League Championship. Already down 40-8, Sharpe and the YRHS Raiders team decided to give their inspiration and their waterboy the moment of a lifetime by sending him out on the field for the final play of their season. Senchuk, who was travelling with the team thanks to their new Getting in the Game program was sent out in his Raider jersey and a helmet to throw the final pass of the Championship game. Senchuk received the shotgun pass almost perfectly, went into a classic three step drop and delivered a pass to a wide open Tyrell Ulmer for a first down. After the game Sharpe said that the moment allowed the players to get a perspective that despite a loss, life goes on after the football season. “He’s an awesome kid. You think about him, the kid would give anything to play. So we’re going to complain that we lost? We’ve got a kid there who would give anything just to be out there with the guys,” said Sharpe on that day last year. “He

had his chance today too. Which was awesome.” “Lee Rusnak, a local businessman here bought the jersey last year in 2013 the first year we did this jersey auction at our Yorkton Minor Football fundraiser. That money went to this program we have called Getting In The Game so kids like Tyler could travel,” said Sharpe. “It’s not just for football. Any special needs student could travel with the team with a teacher’s aid and have a regular high school experience.” Now after another generous charitable donation from Farrell Agencies, who bought Nehring’s game

worn Las Vegas Wranglers jersey for $4000, Yorkton Minor Football are hoping that more local teams embrace using the program. “It is important for the community to know this program wasn’t designed just for one person or one sports team or even just for Yorkton Minor Football,” says Sharpe. “We started this so that any special assistance needed to ensure that those who couldn’t participate in being apart of a team can do so which is our main focus of the program.” “Getting to be apart of a team is an important part of being a child and getting to experience being a kid so

we really hope that other programs take advantage of the generous donations local businesses have given us these last two seasons to get the Gettin in the Game program off the ground.” Sharpe says that local clubs looking to take advantage of the opportunity to use this program can contact Yorkton Minor Football at any point of the year. “For those interested you can simply contact Yorkton Minor Football and our treasurer Darcy Zaharia who looks after the program for us and will set whoever wants to use the program up to make things possible,” closes Sharpe.

Cards topple Mils in WMBL opener By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer Ending the 2013 Western Major League Baseball on a four game win streak despite missing the playoffs for a fifth straight season, the Yorkton Cardinals had a strong start to their 2014 campaign on what was a tricky four game road trip leading up to this Friday’s home opener at Jubilee Park. With games against East Division rivals in the Melville Millionaires and Weyburn Beavers sandwiched between a weekend back to back with the Saskatoon Yellow Jackets, the Cardinals eventually went 2-2 for the week with both of their losses coming in one run affairs to show that things may be different in

2014 for Yorkton’s boys of summer. Opening Night 2014 for the Cardinals took place outside of the friendly confines of Jubilee Park and into the most hostile of territory as they travelled down the Highway 10 to take on the defending champion Melville Millionaires in their home opener following their most successful season that ended with a first ever WMBL Championship for Melville. With 2013 innings pitched leader Jeff Pool on the mound for Yorkton as their starter things didn’t start off as hoped for both the Cards as well as Pool as Melville took an early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first thanks to RBI’s from Logan Terwilliger and Blake Evetts. Luckily for both Pool and the Cardinals their own bats would answer right back

in the top half of the second as Stetson McColin would register the first RBI of 2014 and a wild pitch would score to level things up right away as the underdog visitors would get some momentum by way of stealing Melville’s early lead as well as their confidence. Pool would eventually settle down on the mound after a shaky first inning of his second year with the Cardinals, ultimately just allowing the two first inning runs in four innings of work. A solid first outing on the mound for Pool who set the franchise record in innings pitched by a Cardinals player during the 2013 season, getting a bit of a break after just four innings on Opening Night.

Rapid Fire Rants: Stanley Cup Finals, NBA Finals Preview With the NBA/NHL Finals starting in the tail end of this week and my love for both sports I just had to dedicate this column space to some Rapid Fire Rants preview of both the NBA Finals and the NHL Finals as well as offer my predictions on the winners of both series between the Spurs/Heat and Kings/ Hawks respectively. So with that being said, on we go with another week of rapid fire rants from yours truly.... Kings look to Rangers luck


For as good as the New York Rangers were in the Eastern Conference Playoffs, their improbable run to the Stanley Cup Finals involved a lot of luck as much as it involved the stellar goaltending of Henrik Lundqvist. New York barely escaped the lowly Philadelphia Flyers and their horrible goaltending in Round One before they managed to upset the Penguins in the second

round to face off with the Montreal Canadiens. In the Eastern Conference Final the Rangers took out Carey Price in Game One and still struggled to knock off a Montreal team that was using rookie Dustin Tokarski and still nearly forced a Game 7 if not for slim victories by the Rangers at home in both games as New York continued to rely on defensive tactics and their goaltending for much of the series despite holding a considerable edge over Montreal in between the pipes. That type of advantage is not going to come New York’s way in the Finals as the Los Angeles Kings bring a playoff resume that can’t be questioned. An 8-1 playoffs record over three seasons leading up to the Finals is hard to ignore before you consider Los Angeles’ top to bottom edge in all facets of the game. More talented and better at playing the physical, stingy, tactics the Rangers employed during the playoffs (Vancouver fans really wish

Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig Alain Vigneault coached like this before getting fired), it is hard to talk about the Kings as anything but massive favorites to show the Western Conference’s dominance over the East this season. Anything can happen in the playoffs in hockey, and Los Angeles needed some miracles to knock off their opponents as well, but the Kings are more than a class above a Rangers team that has had to rely on tactics that just don’t seem like they will work against a Kings team that would be more than willing to play the Rangers game just to prove that they are just as physical and

defensively sound. Unless the Rangers get four world class nights from their goalie, don’t expect this to go the Rangers way. Ruttig’s Rants Prediction: Kings in 5. Spurs/Heat II While the Stanley Cup Finals matchup is a high profile clash of New York Vs. LA, the NBA Finals meeting of the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs features a rematch that surpasses any build up that the NHL could have dreamed of as the veteran Spurs look to prevent Miami from winning three straight

championships after falling just short of the finish line in Games 6/7 in Miami last year. Becoming another victim of the NBA’s 2-3-2 format, the Spurs couldn’t steal a game in Miami to win the title and thanks to Ray Allen’s famous three point shot the Spurs became the closest team in recent memory to win the NBA title without actually lifting the Larry O’Brien Trophy. Now that the Spurs are the top seed the 2-3-2 format has been abolished, but they do come in as fsvorites in Vegas despite the Heat’s back to back titles and the presence of the heir to Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant as the best all-around player in the NBA in LeBron James who will be looking to “three peat� just like MJ and Kobe did to cement his legacy as one of the greatest playoff performers of all time. James has came a long way since his days in Cleveland and after winning two titles along with the natural heal-

ing process of time there appears to be far less ill will towards him joining Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade in Miami instead of staying with his home state team in Cleveland to start the Heat’s dynasty. That doesn’t mean the large majority of the basketball world will be pulling for the Heat as many who watched the Spurs fall inches away from the finish line in not one, but two of the greatest NBA Finals games to ever be played last season will be in the corner of the challengers instead of rooting for a Kobe/Jordan-esque three peat from LeBron James and company. Regardless of what happens history will be made, but with home court advantage in Game 7 the Spurs have the ace in the hole should an inevitable scenario come into play, making them likely to spoil the three peat. Hungry to win a potential final championship, 2014 looks like the Spurs moment. Spurs in 7.

Yorkton Cardinals 2-2 after WMBL opening week Cont. from Page 13.

Thanks to Pool keeping Yorkton in the game by keeping the Mils from scoring early runs, the bats continued to be hot on the first day of the 2014 season as an excited group of new Cardinals made their impression felt by tagging the Mils for two runs in the third to take the lead as veteran Kameron Mizzell showed his leadership with a goahead RBI with a runner in scoring position after Austin Drummonds hit a lead off double. Already up 3-2, Nick Gotta would cash in Mizzell with an RBI double to give the Cardinals a 4-2 lead. In the fifth the Cardinals would extend their lead as Stetson McColin would put Yorkton firmly in the drivers seat by hitting a single that would cash in two runs to give the Cards a 6-2 lead for their bullpen to work with as an Opening Night win was firmly in their grasps against the

defending WMBL champions. Melville expectedly answered back with two runs in the sixth and a run in the seventh before the Yorkton bullpen dug deep in the final two innings to get the 6-5 win as Cole Roark would be the hero in relief, getting credited with the Yorkton bullpen’s first save of the season. Cameron Duncan led the way for the Cards with a 3 for 5 night at the plate in the season opener. Former Regina Red Sox additions in Austin Drummonds and second baseman Nick Gotta also had a couple of base hits for the Cardinals lineup that showed potency in their first showing of the season. Yorkton would then head from Melville to Saskatoon to continue their road trip over the first week of the WMBL season as the Cardinals are set to play the bulk of their opening schedule on the road, playing a two game set with the

Yellow Jackets. In the first game the Cardinals would come back from an early deficit to tie the game at 4-4 in the top of the eighth before an error in the bottom of the inning allowed the Yellow Jackets to sneak away with a 5-4 win for their first loss of the season despite leading 3-2 at the seventh inning stretch. Yorkton would have no problems in the rematch with the Yellow Jackets as the Cardinals bats were once again red hot in a game where the lineup registered an impressive 14 hits. Even more impressive was the Cardinals ability to cash in on those runs, scoring 13 runs on their 14 base hits, including six in the top of the ninth to pour it on the Yellow Jackets in a 13-5 drubbing to give the team their first comfortable win of the season and to move to 2-1 after the weekend. That 2-1 record was good enough for second place heading into their

East Division battle with the Weyburn Beavers on Tuesday as the Beavers came into the contest with a 2-0 record from the weekend and would be looking to go a perfect 3-0 while the Cards were hoping to continue their momentum and go 3-1 leading into their Friday home opener against Melville. In a game where both starting pitchers were shelled early, bullpen


pitching became the story as after explosive starts from both teams at the plate led to an early 6-6 tie the game went all the way into the 11th inning where the Beavers held on at home to stay 3-0 and push the Cardinals record back down to an early .500 mark. All things considered the Cardinals first week of baseball was a success as their bats have shown early life ÂŽ

as they have scored just over seven runs per game and defeated the defending WMBL champions on the road as positives.
