Food: not plentiful for all – how we can help By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer While there might be plenty of food in the refrigerators and cupboards of most Yorkton families, that’s not the case in many other countries around the world. Representatives from the “Free the Children” organization were in Yorkton recently, talking to local schools about the importance of food security in the third world, and how they can get involved. “Free The Children’s mission is to create a world where all young people are free to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change. The organization was founded by Craig Kielburger in 1995 when he gathered 11 school friends to begin fighting child labour. He was 12. That morning, Craig flipped through the Toronto Star in search of the comics, he was struck by a story. A raw, but courageous story of a boy his age named Iqbal. Iqbal Masih was born in South Asia and sold into slavery at the age of four. In his short life, he had spent six years chained to a carpet-weaving loom. Iqbal captured the world’s attention by speaking out for children’s rights... What Craig learned from Iqbal’s story was that the bravest voice can live in the smallest body. Craig had to do something.” And so Free the Children was Born. Tania Cheng and Michael Lorsch (recently in Yorkton) with Free the Children have been travelling across the country to talk about food security. Continued on Page 15.

MAJOR CONTRIBUTION – It’s a healthy step in the right direction. The Parkland College’s Trades and Technology Centre is moving closer to reality. The college recently received a major funding boost from the RBC Foundation. RBC announced $50,000 donation to the centre over the next four years. Pictured at left (l-r) are: Lynette Gillen, Vice President, RBC Commercial and Financial Services, Regina and Parkland Market, Sandra Hollinger, Account Manager, RBC Commercial and Financial Services, Yorkton Branch and Dr. Fay Myers, President - Parkland College. The end goal for the capital campaign is $5 million. Myers says that the college is moving swiftly towards that goal, and greatly appreciates the support of businesses like RBC.
This is MY DEAL HAAS
The contribution is part of Parkland College’s first ever major capital campaign, the first such campaign undertaken by a Saskatchewan Regional College. RBC’s donation pushes the total raised to over $2.2 million. “We at RBC are so proud of our partnership with Parkland College Trades and Technology Centre,” says Gillen. “We believe in the important role that education plays in building vibrant communities and healthy economies.” The state of the art Trades and Technology Centre will have the capacity to train more than 350 skilled graduates per year, and also upgrade the skills of 2,000 workers annually.

Fees set to rise By SHANNON DEVEAU N-R Writer
They are currently among the lowest in the province but following changes approved at Monday evening’s regular meeting of Yorkton City Council, landfill fees will be rising. “Historically, Yorkton’s landfill rates have been below the majority of Saskatchewan’s cities,” said Michael Buchholzer, the city’s director of Environmental Services in a presentation to council Monday. “Prior to 2010, rates were estimated at $4/tonne with annual increases thereafter. With these increases our rates are still below other cities averages of $48/tonne.” With a site that’s reaching near capacity and requiring expansion, Buchholzer says increased rates are going to be necessary to make for rising costs. With that said, increases are slated to be phased in and will still weigh in lower than in both Regina and Saskatoon. Effective June 1, council has approved an increase in both commercial and residential rates by $12.40/tonne in the first year, with an additional $10/tonne coming into effect in 2014 and then subsequently in 2015. Translated into a dollar amount it means rates will go from $22.60 per tonne to $35 per tonne this year. “The life expectancy of our existing landfill is estimated at two to three years,” adds Buchholzer. “The expansion will consist of approximately four or five large pits, with each pit containing a leachate collection system. Phase one of construction is being estimated at costing $5-6 million. “With these added costs and stricter environmental regulations for establishing new landfills, communities need to change their attitude towards the handling of solid waste.” Buchholzer says the obvious alternative is to reduce waste and increase recycling strategies and new technology is being examined along these lines but the bottom line is dealing with waste is costly but necessary so increases will be needed. “Administration is in discussions with companies on other alternative methods... such as reuse of material hauled into the landfill, incorporating recycled material into the construction of our new pit, and evaluating proven waste to energy technologies.”

Radiothon hits nearly $79,000
By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer
The Health Foundation Airwaves for Health Radiothon, hosted by GX94 and the Fox, had another successful year in 2013, raising an early total of $78,925. Ross Fisher, Executive Director of the Health Foundation, says that the success of this year’s event shows that the community is ready and willing to start raising money for a new hospital. This year’s event was the launch of the fundraising campaign for the new hospital. The biggest change over previous years was a change in venue, as the event was hosted by the Yorkton Regional Health Centre. Angie Norton, General Manager of Harvard Broadcasting in Yorkton, says that the change in venue meant that the on-air staff were better able to connect with the health professionals who know best how a new hospital will benefit both staff and patients. As a result, the shift in venue is planned to be a permanent change for the Radiothon. “We got a lot more doctors, nurses and other radio staff involved who hadn’t really had the opportunity to be a part of this before,” Norton says. The event is a major
fundraiser for The Health Foundation, and Norton says that it’s something the station enjoys doing every year. She says the on-air staff enjoys getting out of the studio and into the community, and the station as a whole likes helping raise the funds for various causes. “I think for the on-air staff, being in the location and seeing the activities of the hospital on a day to day basis, gave them a better understanding so they could communicate with the listeners the desperate need for a new hospital.” The support of the business community was another highlight for the event. Fisher says that 47 businesses contributed $1,000 or more to the Radiothon. As well, many businesses set up promotional events, where sales of certain items would contribute to their total donation. He notes that, for example, the Yorkton Co-op donated based on gas sales over three days, and that promotion raised over $7,000. Fisher says that the business saw a significant bump in sales over the days, and he hopes to grow those kinds of promotions next year. Fisher also expects that the number will climb when the final numbers for new initiatives like the donation boxes.
Electrifying option Juice Up! Peavey Mart has announced it is the first retailer in Canada to commit to the installation of electric charging stations at all locations – including Yorkton’s. The retail chain decided to install charging stations at all 29 store locations and has them already in Red Deer, Regina, Medicine Hat and Wetaskiwin. “Charging is free for electric car owners,” says Doug Anderson, President of Peavey Industries. “We expect most people will charge for an hour or so.” The distance a car can drive on a single charge depends on the battery, the car, and the charging unit. Red Deer is a convenient stop for people traveling on the QE2 corridor. Canada is home to the world’s longest charging network, completed last year by Saskatchewan-based Sun Country Highways, who installed electric chargers along the Trans-Canada highway. Sun Country Highways President Kent Rathwell says Peavey Mart is adding to that capacity. “Electric cars are a movement that the average person can partake in” says Rathwell, “and Peavey Mart is helping provide options for the average person by filling in charging capacity across most of Alberta and Saskatchewan. By assisting Canadians to lower their emissions, it allows Canada to continue to develop its resource sector while lowering emissions is good for all Canadian’s and Peavey is trying to do their part.” “We’re extending the reach North,” Anderson. “Soon people will be able to travel from Dawson Creek, BC to Estevan, Saskatchewan, and hook in to the TransCanada network.” “The number of electric cars and charging stations is clearly growing,” adds Anderson. “By adding charging stations, we’re increasing the capacity for people and helping make electric cars more of an option.” Peavey Mart’s Launch Event is set for June 8 at the Red Deer Peavey Mart location.
THE AIRWAVES FOR HEALTH was a major success this year, hitting nearly $79,000 for an early total. Ross Fisher, Executive Director of the Health Foundation, and Angie Norton, General Manager of Harvard Broadcasting in Yorkton, hope to build on that success into the future, as the city gets closer to a new hospital.

Labour laws see final reading Like it or not, it’s passed. The (contentious) Saskatchewan Employment Act (Bill 85) has passed third and final reading in the Legislative Assembly. The Act consolidates 12 pieces of labour legislation into one updated and comprehensive Act that the government says will protect workers, promotes growth and increases accountability. Not all in the province are so excited about what the law will mean. Saskatchewan Government and General Employees Union (SGEU) president Bob Bymoen, for one, has said the new legislation will make it more difficult for workers to form a union, and will erode weekends and standard hours of work. And at least two components of Bill 85 have been the subject of court battles over the past few years, as unions questioned the legality of both essential services legislation and the Trade Union Amendment Act. Others, including the NDP, believed a decision should be delayed to allow more time for consultation. “Essential services will be added to the new Act in the fall, which will provide our government time to seek input and address concerns about the current legislation,” says the province’s Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan adding, “The new Act includes house amendments that are the result of our consultative process. As a result, we now have an even better Act that is fair to employees, employers and unions.” For more information on the changes and how they affect Saskatchewan workers and employers, visit www.lrws.gov.sk.ca/modernizing-legislation. The ball of change has been set to roll, time will tell if it will be of benefit to the majority in the province.
The time for change has arrived
It certainly IS – as has been pointed out – a tragic legacy, but is throwing more cash at the problem (as has happened historically for years) going to make everything better? I think not. According to newly released data from a National Canadian Household survey, of the approximate 30,000 children currently in foster care in Canada, over 14,000 are Aboriginal – that’s nearly half of all the children in care and government representatives say the number is shocking. But is it really? Neglect, brought on by poverty, poor housing and substance abuse are said to be key factors as to why this trend is happening. And no doubt they are. “These are all things that child welfare can do something about,” says Cindy Blackstock, executive director of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada. “What we have here is a very dire statistic for children who, just like their parents in many cases, are being removed from their families because of neglect. The government is simply not giving these children the same opportunity to grow up with their families that all other Canadian children enjoy...” Hmmm... Doesn’t this statistic scream the fact there are problems with accountability and the way we fund reserves? Maybe if we actually sat down and reexam-
ined this issue rather than continue to throw funding at it as has been historical in Canada we might get somewhere. According to the stats, the rising number of children in foster care is directly proportional to the overall growth in First Shannon Deveau steady Nations populations. Between 2006 and 2011, the Aboriginal population in Canada increased at a rate of 20 per cent, as compared to a five per cent increase in the non-aboriginal population. These are alarming statistics. What kind of world are we looking at if we continue to let this happen. How fair are we being to all of these innocent children? “It’s a devastating number. It makes your stomach boil,” says an expert on Aboriginal issues at the University of Saskatchewan adding the numbers “underscore a tragic legacy that we don’t talk about as openly as we should in Canada. What you’re seeing is the impact on children on family breakdown, alcohol or drug abuse and cultural loss in Aboriginal communities... You don’t learn healthy parenting skills when you grow up in an institution...” No you don’t. So let’s stop making the mistakes of the past, stop sweeping things under the carpet and deal with the problem at hand. The lives of countless children and their futures depend on it.
The way I see it... Column
Another excuse to happily ignore American Idol The last of the original American Idol judges is gone. Randy Jackson has gone on to do something else, leaving the show with a panel of new faces, as the other two original judges – Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul – have long since departed the program. It was Jackson alone who stuck around, and provided the only continuity with the original. Now that it has essentially become the George Washington’s Ax of television, I wonder if people will finally tire of the old show. Sure, it has had some good moments, the show discovered Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, who are respectable pop stars. It’s even connected to Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson, even though she didn’t actually wind up winning, or even progressing very far in the program. Sure, there were duds, like the grey-haired guy whose name has been lost to the mists of time, but not everyone’s going to be a winner, even if they’re technically the winner. That’s actually the problem. In spite of the show managing to find talent, in the long run it’s actually a pretty awful show for finding pop stars. I know this is going to be a controversial statement, and perhaps things have changed since I watched it last, but the problem with Idol is that it is not focused on what can maintain a career.
Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger The whole thing is decided on who has the best voice. That is, surprisingly, quite irrelevant for pop stardom. In reality, the biggest success is not the best singer, but the singer who has the best songs. A prodigiously talented songwriter can get into the public consciousness even if they sound very much like an grumpy table saw, like Bob Dylan for example. Other pop stars might not be talented writers, but they are able to get talented people to write songs for them, and that’s what keeps people interested in their music and their career. American Idol does not have original music, it’s all covers. Sometimes they’re good covers, but there’s still nothing new. There’s no indication
that the contestants can write music, or attract talented collaborators to write music for them, and they need to do at least one of those things if they want people to still care after the season finale. So it’s all a big spectacle, with bright lights and a screaming crowd, but it’s ultimately meaningless. They might be able to perform covers well, but so can any competent bar band. The thing that separates a band in a bar from a band in a stadium is the ability to get people hooked on their original music. Which is not to slight competent bar bands – they work hard, they’re often filled with talented musicians, and the best ones can give everyone at the bar a great time. But covers can only get you so far, and when you play only covers it does limit the degree of success you can have. We’ve heard those songs already, we need new songs, even if the new songs sound pretty similar to the old songs. Lots of artists have great original songs that nobody has heard, they need a platform, not the people who can sing a good cover but are unable to do very much else. Idol, unfortunately, caters to those who can do a good cover, not those who can do a good original. The ones who succeed after the show can do more than a cover, and they should be the focus of a talent show from the outset.

The high cost of tax compliance
Pass Bill 85
To the Editor:
As the stress of the April 30th tax filing deadline fades and the shock realization by most Canadians regarding how much income and payroll taxes they pay subsides, it’s worthwhile considering the costs imposed on Canadians to comply with tax regulations. All told, governments in Canada expect to collect $586.6 billion in 2013 (fiscal 2013-14). There are, however, significant costs beyond the simple dollars extracted. Take for example the costs incurred by individuals, families, and businesses across the country to comply with the tax code. These costs include the time required to collect, organize, and report tax receipts, and the fees paid to tax preparers, accountants, and lawyers, to name just a few. According to a new report the Fraser Institute published recently, on average, Canadians who filed taxes spent 7.2 hours completing their returns, which is time not spent with their family, building their businesses, or undertaking countless other more productive activities. This translates into an average cost of $217 per Canadian tax-filer. In aggregate, these costs for individuals and families for just personal income taxes reached almost $6.7 billion in 2011. Another $246.2 million was incurred to comply with personal property taxes. Businesses, both small and large, also incur costs to com-
ply with taxes. Our estimate is that businesses incurred up to $17.8 billion in compliance costs for 2011 for the broad range of taxes businesses are required to administer on behalf of governments as well as the taxes they pay. All told, that means Canadians incurred up to $24.8 billion in total tax compliance costs in 2011, representing roughly 1.4 per cent of our economy. That’s $719 per Canadian who filed taxes to comply with the tax regulations and rules. Let’s be clear, these costs do not add productive capacity to the economy by building new factories or purchasing new machinery nor do they improve our human capital by investing in education or training. These costs also don’t improve our lives by increasing our incomes or the time available for family and friends. Rather, these are the costs incurred to do nothing but comply with tax rules. More disturbing is that the real burden of such compliance costs falls disproportionately on lower-income Canadians. While the average cost of complying with the tax code increases as one’s income increases, the real burden of such costs is measured as a share of one’s income. Using this measure, lower-income Canadians pay the highest share of their income to comply with the tax code. A similar situation exists for business. As a share of revenues, smaller businesses pay a higher cost for complying with the tax system than larger busi-
nesses. Put simply, our tax code imposes costs on those least able to afford them. These are only the costs that individual Canadians and businesses incur to comply with the tax code. Another $6.6 billion is incurred by governments across the country to administer our tax system. That means we spend roughly 1.8 per cent of GDP every year just to comply with and administer our tax system. The answer is to simplify the tax system radically. That means reducing and even eliminating special privileges, tax credits, and other deductions for both individuals and businesses in order to reduce the complexity of the tax code. We know from countless studies completed in both Canada and abroad that the complexity of the tax system is one of the main drivers of tax compliance and administrative costs. By curtailing or removing these special privileges we can reduce the complexity of the tax code and make it easier and less costly to comply with. This means scarce, valuable resources can be freed for higher purposes like investing in new factories, new technologies, and new businesses, all of which will improve the economy over the longer-term. Tax reform should be an agenda item for all governments as they struggle with how to improve the economy. Jason Clemens, Troy Media Corp.
A dodgy economic record is evident
To the Editor:
Damning reports from the Auditor-General are raising tough questions about the fiscal and economic credibility of the Harper government. Among many other things, the A-G disclosed $29-billion in delinquent taxes, search-and-rescue deficiencies that put lives at risk, multi-million-dollar sloppiness in administering Employment Insurance payments, and more than $3-billion unaccounted for in security spending. Also last week, neither the Defence Minister nor the Minister of Public Works could explain why this government appears to be paying 10 times more than other countries for just the design work on its new Arctic patrol ships. The Conservatives also had to admit the mess they’ve made of the Temporary Foreign
Workers program, aggravating employers, employees and especially the jobless and the under-trained. And information began to emerge about the last four Conservative budgets imposing hidden tax increases, especially hitting middle-class Canadians, to the tune of billions-upon-billions of dollars. All of this is on-top of a special audit report last year about the F-35 fighter-jet boondoggle, which involved massive costs close to $50-billion, non-competitive untendered contracting, duplicitous book-keeping, and a deeply troubled aircraft. The Parliamentary Budget Officer characterized the government’s management of that project as incompetent and deceitful. What’s surprising is that some people are surprised at these revelations.
Remember in Opposition, Mr. Harper and his colleagues were advocates of some pretty bad economic advice. They wanted to scrap the Canada Pension Plan. They favoured a more US-like banking system for Canada with less regulation and big bank mergers. They also wanted Ottawa to cut deeper into transfer payments to provinces. Once in office, the Harper Conservatives immediately over-spent by three-times the rate of inflation. They eliminated Contingency Reserves and Prudence Factors from federal budgeting, exposing taxpayers to greater financial risks. At the same time, they killed income trusts, thus vaporizing about $25-billion from the retirement savings of two-million middleclass Canadians. They also experimented with
high-risk 40-year home mortgages which added substantially to the heavy debt-loads now burdening many Canadian households. Such dumb decisions have long-term consequences. In barely two years, the Harper Conservatives squandered a decade of Liberal surpluses, putting Canada back into deficit again BEFORE, not because of, the recession which arrived in late 2008. And they haven’t balanced the books ever since. Mr. Harper failed to anticipate that recession, just as he has failed to meet every one of his fiscal projections, while adding more than $150-billion to the federal debt. It should be no surprise that there’s more trouble now accumulating. Ralph Goodale, MP, Wascana, SK.
Temporary Foreign Worker Program is flawed To the Editor: I have just lost my job to workers coming from India on Temporary Foreign Worker program. I used to work for Shaw Communications Inc., they have now bought in people from Infosys (Indian Company) and Oracle India for Testing (Quality Assurance) related roles... This program is becoming a thorn in the growth of Permanent Residents who are trying to make life in Canada. I think this is true injustice for people who trying to make Canada their home.
I have a Masters degree from US, I have the education and experience yet I stand on the losing side, back in 2008 I was working for Royal Bank, they bought in people from India (iGate) and now Infosys... there is also huge presence of companies like Cognizant India and Tata Consulting Services... all these companies are taking jobs of Canadian citizens and permanent residents. I am not against people coming to Canada but just that the platform should be even... not some worker who doesn’t knows a thing about Canadian Culture and
joins the company just because the company he/she works for has got the contract from a Canadian company which is doing cost cutting by laying of labor. When a PR goes looking for work, all the companies ask for Canadian work experience, and also tell you to get Credential Evaluation, but the temporary foreign workers don’t have to do any of this stuff. I request you to take action and close this program at the earliest. Abdul Tahir Mirza, Calgary, AB.
To the Editor:
Over the past few months, we’ve all heard a lot from organized labour who have tried to characterize Bill 85 - The Saskatchewan Employment Act as an attack on workers’ rights and taking Saskatchewan back 100 years. Some union leaders have even gone as far as suggesting Bill 85 will eliminate overtime, lunch breaks and other employment standards. Others have said Saskatchewan small business owners are opposing improvements for workers in the province. This is completely false. With all of their over-heated rhetoric, it’s surprising Spring didn’t arrive weeks ago. What we need are the facts. Saskatchewan is suffering one of the most severe labour shortages in the province’s history. Talk to any small business owner across this province and finding qualified employees is their number-one issue. A recent study by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) found the shortage of qualified labour is a having a major impact on the ability of Saskatchewan entrepreneurs to run their business. To cope, 69 per cent of Saskatchewan small business owners have hired underqualified workers, 66 per cent have increased salaries and benefits and 48 per cent have ignored new business opportunities because they don’t have enough staff to take advantage of growth opportunities. It’s disappointing that some folks believe the only labour shortage small business is experiencing is one of cheap labour. These folks haven’t been following the news as Saskatchewan has among the fastest wage growths in Canada and businesses still can’t find workers. I think most people would agree that the world of work has changed dramatically over the past 25 years, yet the approach to regulating the workplace has not. Today’s workers expect flexible work arrangements and have access to technologies that didn’t exist in 1985. Bill 85 is an opportunity for the provincial government to update labour laws, making it easier to provide the work environment employees want. Take, for example the perspective from a small business owner who favors mutually agreed upon flexible work arrangements. He said: “Flexible work arrangements, that benefit both the employee and employer, should be allowed to be negotiated without the intervention of a government signing a piece of paper, similar to BC, Alberta and Manitoba.” Another current practice in all of these provinces is the ability for an employee to ask to create Time Banks. The same business owner said: “This would allow a worker the ability to put in a few extra hours and give them the freedom to take time with pay at a future date. My employees like this kind of flexibility to take overtime pay or bank the time. It seems pretty common sense to me.” We hope the provincial government will consider some ‘common-sense’ amendments that will further strengthen Bill 85. Why not require employees to give notice to the employer before quitting a job, just as employers are required to give employees? CFIB has always advocated for more practical and effective ways to help low-income earners. We want low-income workers to keep all of their earnings – you’d think organized labour would agree with us on that. However, in order to mitigate the impact of annually indexing minimum wage, we’ve recommended the provincial government introduce a training wage, similar to Nova Scotia or a gratuity wage for workers who earn tips, similar to Ontario, Alberta and B.C. Contrary to the false advertising, none of the ideas in Bill 85 are radical as many of them are currently legislated in other provinces. Now is not the time to delay the passing of Bill 85. It is time to move beyond the tired old rhetoric and focus on some ‘common-sense’ changes needed to modernize labour legislation and keep Saskatchewan moving forward. Marilyn Braun-Pollon, Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB).

Student loan forgiveness for doctors and nurses

of the Season
by Garry Breitkreuz rural communities often get the short end of the stick. Understandably, nurses, nurse-practitioners, and doctors of family medicine often head to larger centres where they may be paid more. But in our less populated communities, that trend leaves packed waiting rooms, stacked appointment books and immensely frustrated, less healthy residents. Prime Minister Harper has outlined four priorities that Canadians care about: their families, safe streets and communities, pride in citizenship, and personal financial security. The decision to invest nine million dollars a year for Canada Student Loan forgiveness for some medical practitioners dovetails well with those priorities. Strengthening community health care helps keep our families safe and healthy and our communities proudly welcoming. It also assists the financial security of the doctors, nurses and nurse practitioners who choose to
live and practice in under-served rural and remote communities. To be eligible for partial loan forgiveness, family doctors, residents in family medicine, nurses and nurse practitioners must have begun working in a designated community on or after April 1, 2012. They must have been employed for 12 months, and have provided inperson services for a minimum of 400 hours throughout that year. Similarly, residents in family medicine must have provided a minimum of 400 hours of in-person service to be eligible. Loan forgiveness will be available for a maximum of five years of work in a designated community. Family doctors and residents in family medicine will be eligible to receive up to $8,000 a year, to a maximum of $40,000 over five years. Nurses and nurse practitioners are eligible for half that amount. For more information, visit: www.actionplan. gc.ca.

The Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday, May 23rd, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. in the main floor boardroom of the Regional Health Centre in Yorkton The audit of the financial statements will be presented at that time.
Regrettably, rural communities across Canada have become the less attractive option for young health care professionals looking for work. One of the reasons for that is their need to lower the stress—and balance – of long-lasting, astronomical student loans. Beginning now, the government wants to change that. As promised in 2011, we will forgive a portion of their Canada Student Loans in an effort to encourage better and more consistent health care in 4,200 rural communities. Since I live in and represent a mostly rural constituency, I especially appreciate the need to have health services close at hand. That may have something to do with the fact that one of my grandsons was born on the corner of two roads on a very chilly Saskatchewan morning – his family living deep in the country. (All turned out well as Grandma came along at the right moment to help our son act as midwife.) In a country as vast as ours, meeting the medical needs of every community is challenging indeed. But it’s no secret that concerning the number of available health professionals,

Jump start! May 25 has been officially declared as Canadian Tire Jump Start Day both across Canada and in Yorkton. Launched in 2005 the jump start initiative is a charitable program that was set up to help kids in financial need participate in organized sports of all types. According to the statistics one in three local families canâ€™t afford to get their children involved in organized sports. Since the programs inception $117,000 has provided over 1,000 local children the opportunity to turn the statistics around. More than 560,000 children have been helped nation-wide. Research has shown that participation in sports and recreation increases a childâ€™s chance of success in life through a healthier lifestyle, increased selfesteem and confidence, the opportunity to learn important leadership skills and improved school performance... Two special bbq events have been planned in conjunction with Jump Start Day â€“ one on May 23 for the official Yorkton store grand opening and one on May 25. Money raised stays local. The event not only raises funds but also awareness within the community that the program is available to the families who need it the most. Representatives will be on hand to answer questions.

Celebrating 130 Years of Bringing Family & Friends Together 1987 - 1995 Tragedy At The Fair Donna Taylor ~author~
The summer fair of 1988 will be remembered by many in Yorkton and area for the tragic accident which occurred on opening day. A vehicle was driven through the fence and onto the fair grounds, killing the driver and injuring several others. The Association’s minutes note that “the quick response of the Midway, Ambulance and City Fire Department personnel likely prevented further injury”. The Directors of the Association had discussed the need to plan for emergencies just the previous year and had sent a letter to the City of Yorkton regarding the need for another gate. The extra gate would be of value in a variety of emergency situations, but would have been of little assistance in the tragedy which occurred. The seniors’ tea saw changes in this period – in 1988 it moved from being held before the fair to the first day of the fair, and became a ‘self serve’ style of tea. The new format was considered a success, with 566 registered seniors, and approximately 40 more who didn’t sign the register. Seniors were given a reduced gate admission price that day of $3. It was also a time of change in the Yorkton Exhibition Association’s office. The manager, Dodie Litowitz resigned in 1989, finishing work just after the summer fair, and Shaun Morin was hired as her replacement. Shaun resigned in 1995, and Richard Okrainec was hired to fill the position, after a competition which saw 38 applicants for the job. The Exhibition’s casino also went through some changes in these years. In 1987 it was moved into the Convention Centre. It was a good fundraiser for the Association, with $76,000 bet over the four days of the fair in 1989, with a profit of $14,000 realized on the casino and breakers. In 1991 the Association netted $17,000 on the casino and $12,000 on breakers. Now that the organization had purchased the equipment necessary to run a casino, there were others who wished to use it. The equipment was sometimes rented out, and in 1991 the Exhibition Association was approached by the Melville Agri-Park Spring Show to run a casino during their four day show. The Melville offer included a guarantee to cover any potential losses up to $2500, and to split any profits which might be realized on a 50-50 basis. It was a success, and the Association was invited
The Townsend Petting Zoo was a popular attraction with the younger set at the fair.
back to run a casino at the Melville show the following year. In 1992 the Board discussed running a permanent casino monthly on a year round basis, as the government was looking into running casinos like bingo, and it was felt the Exhibition should establish something permanent before that happened. A motion was made to run a permanent casino on a trial basis in the Agri-Pavilion, subject to approval from the Saskatchewan Gaming Commission. It was a short run, as the monthly casinos were dropped in March of 1993. Horse racing was cut back to two days in 1988, which was reported to cut down on the usual losses – only $4500 was lost that year. 1989 was a great year for horse racing – the most successful ever – with a profit of between three and four thousand dollars. Corporate sponsorships totaling $4,200 certainly made a difference. 1989 was a significant year in the Association’s history, as in July of that year, the Board approved a proposal for a fall commercial cattle sale to be held October 18-21 of that year – Harvest Livestock Showdown. In the early years of the event there was no gate admission, but admission was charged to the rodeo and rodeo dance. The show was ever expanding, and in 1992 the Board made the decision to heat the Industrial Building to solve the problem of lack of space. The Ladies Auxiliary of the Exhibition Association ran a fashion show at Harvest Showdown for a couple of years, but in 1992 the Optimist Club took over the fashion show. In 1994 a gate
admission was charged of $3 for adults, $2 for students and $1 for children, but a ticket to the rodeo or fashion show would get you through the door as well. In 1995 the event hosted a Canadian Wheat Board symposium with two pro Wheat Board representatives, and two supporters of dual marketing, which was very well received. Entertainment at the summer fair often included Saskatchewan Express. In 1991 Lyle Walsh reported to the Board that GX Radio’s Star Search had been well attended, but that he was uncertain as to whether the station would have another one the next year. His hesitation turned out to be misplaced, with the Star Search finals becoming an annual, and very popular, entertainment piece at the fair. In 1989 Sask Sport brought in a 5,000 square foot display to the fair at no cost, the only provision being that the Exhibition Association needed to provide manpower to man the display. In 1991, the regular concessionaires expressed concern about the treatment received by health inspectors of the provincial government. The Board did their best to follow up on the concerns by asking for a meeting with the Health Department, but by the time a meeting was held in 1992 the department reported no major concerns, with the exception of a request that the Association paint the inside of the four permanent booths. In 1995 beach volleyball was introduced at the summer fair. Jim Logan of Yorkton Concrete dug the pits and the sand was donated by Parker Quine.
It was tradition in these years to name an Honourary President for the summer fair, and those given the honour in these years include Jesse Savisky, Gerald Grunert and Craig Burkell. The Travellers’Parade was now a joint project of the Exhibition Association and the Yorkton Kinsmen Club, with the 1991 committee comprised of Stan Stephenson and Irwin Kohlert from the Exhibition, and Gerry Jemieff, Barry Boehm and Bob Anderson representing the Kinsmen Club. In 1991 the Board came up with the a new idea for the car draw – each paid admission would get a ticket, with a draw made nightly. They asked the five local car dealers to take part at a cost of $500 each, which would include them in the advertising and allow them to display a vehicle on the grounds during the fair. The lucky ticket holder would be allowed to choose one of five keys, and then select a car to try to start. If the key worked, that vehicle was won. The Yorkton dealers all refused, but the car draw went ahead with dealers from the surrounding area – Cardeager Ford, Todd Plymouth Chrysler, Ochs Chev Olds and Paragon Sales. New ideas for fundraising were always being considered, as costs of putting on the summer fair and other events continued to rise, as well as there always being repairs and improvements to be made to the grounds. In 1992 a financial blow was received in a letter from Darryl Cunningham on behalf of the provincial government, indicating that as all government grants had been cut, the Association would not be receiving the anticipated $7,500. The Yorkton Exhibition Association was presented with the ‘Industry Achievement Award’ for 1988 at the annual Canadian Association of Exhibitions convention the following year. Those who served as president in these years are all well known names in the Yorkton community – Gordon Harris, Dave Farrell, Don Harris and Doug Poier. While the Exhibition Association rarely makes donations to other organizations, feeling the need to concentrate on their own mandate, there have always been a few exceptions. In 1988 the Board donated $2152.70 to the Intensive Care Unit at the Yorkton Union Hospital, and in 1991 gave $2,000.00 towards the University of Saskatchewan’s Agriculture Building.

Putting an end to Saskatchewan’s injury epidemic By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer Saskatchewan has an injury epidemic, says Gord Moker, CEO of Safe Saskatchewan. As a result, it’s time for the people in the province to start thinking of safety in their lives. In this province, it’s when people are at home that they injure themselves the most. According to statistics, 435 people per day are injured in the province, with 26 hospitalized, 10 suffering a permanent injury and one person will die. Most of those injuries will happen at home, where it is twice as likely that people get injured in the province. There will four times the chance of a permanent disability and five times the chance someone will die from a preventable injury at home. Moker says that as workplace safety improves, it’s at home where people need to start changing their ways. “There has been a lot of great
work and partnerships around workplace safety initiatives. The overall workplace injury rate has come down from 2002 which was its all time high. It’s decreased from five per cent to just under three per cent. For whatever reason, we’ve forgotten about the importance of injuries and preventing them after work,” Moker says. In particular, he adds, for many people the steps that ensure safety at work often end when they get home, which leads to the very injuries those steps prevent. He says that now that safety in the workplace is improving, people in the province need to take those practices home with them. “You’re really putting an unfair burden on your family by exposing yourselves to injuries.” Saskatchewan in particular has an injury rate of 1.4 times the national average. Moker says it’s tough to say why this province is particularly bad about injuries,
especially at home. “I think it traces back to our agricultural roots. We work very hard, especially at seeding and harvest, and we have this get it done at all costs philosophy. Unfortunately, all costs is tragedy in many situations... Now, there’s an opportunity to recognize the work that’s been done in the past, but use that get it done philosophy to end our injury epidemic.” While there is still a way to go, Moker says that Mission Zero is working, with increased investments in injury prevention and reduction in workplace injuries. He says that the Yorkton itself have been a source of a groundswell of support for injury prevention. As an example, the Royal Auto Group recently hosted a safety event at which Moker was invited to speak. He says that their support and promotion of safety is the kind of thing that will inspire more businesses and people to think of safety in their lives.
New Sask. labour legislation in place
The Saskatchewan Employment Act (Bill 85) today passed third and final reading in the Legislative Assembly. The Act consolidates 12 pieces of labour legislation into one updated and comprehensive Act that protects workers, promotes growth and increases accountability. The amendments include: • Creation of three additional leaves (in addition to the two created in the original act for organ donation and to attend a citizenship ceremony) for critically ill child care leave, crime-related child death and disappearance leaves and waiving of the four-week notice requirement as notice may not be possible or appropriate to require; • Providing parttime employees with overtime for all hours worked in excess of eight hours in a day. This is in recognition that part-time workers do not enjoy the benefits of a modified work arrangement (days off); • Clarification that employees are entitled to overtime where the daily maximum hours
established by their work schedule are exceeded. The two schedules provided for in the legislation include hours in excess of eight hours in a day or 10 hours in a day; • Addition of the definition of “emergency circumstance” to mean a situation where there is an imminent risk or danger to a person, property or the employer’s business that could not have been foreseen by the employer; • Requiring employees to provide two weeks written notice of their intention to leave their jobs; • Clarification of the definition of “employee” to make it clear that employees whose primary duties are confidential in nature and directly impact the bargaining unit cannot belong to a union; • Amending the definition of “supervisory employee” to clarify that the primary duties are to be supervisory in nature; • Requiring that good faith negotiations occur prior to ordering a last offer vote; and • Requiring unions to provide an audited financial statement to
its members and provide unaudited financial statements for each bargaining unit to the members of the unit; as well as allowing the unions to provide this information in various means including electronically, posted in the workplace, mailed to the employee; personally given to the employee; or provided on a secure website. The new Act also contains provisions that include: • Indexation of the minimum wage; • Provisions to protect individuals searching for work from mistreatment and fraud perpetrated by unscrupulous recruitment service providers; • While maintaining the 40 hour work week, two work arrangements will be permitted in the legislation – eight hours per day for five days per week or 10 hours per day for four days per week. This is consistent with other jurisdictions in western Canada; • Reduction of the qualification period for maternity, parental and adoption leave from 20 weeks to 13 weeks of service; and
GORD MOKER, CEO of Safe Saskatchewan, recently spoke in Yorkton about the importance of being safe in the province, especially in the home.
• Recognition that no individual or group may be compensated differently on the grounds of any prohibition identified within The Saskatchewan Human Rights Code. The Public Service Essential Services Act is not yet included in the new legislation. This Act was recently upheld by the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal. For more information on these changes and how they affect Saskatchewan workers and employers, visit www. lrws.gov.sk.ca/modernizing-legislation.

Place by the front door or at the bottom of the step two containers of flowers like petunias, geraniums and impatiens or foliage plants for a fresh updated look. If the landscaping presents nicely then people assume the home’s interior is also well maintained. Neatly trimmed lawns, clipped hedges, and weed-free beds show your pride. Gentle curves in lawns, beds and borders soften the hard angles of the house and create a “living welcome mat.” Keep it simple - Have fun and enjoy the summer

THE NEWS REVIEW - Thursday, May 16, 2013 - Page 15A
The farmer is trained, moves on and settles in Submitted by Kaare Askildt, former Preeceville area farmer in training. This one of a series on getting settled in Hazel Dell. My wife is an early riser. She got up around 5:30 the other morning and let the dogs out. Normally the dogs do their business quietly and don’t wake me up. Not this time. The dogs had congregated right under our bedroom window, which is slightly open, and barked so loud that they woke me up! Marion went outside to see what the commotion was all about, and our three dogs had cornered a mutt that had dared to come into our yard which is their territory! It was black with white splotches and appeared to be part collie. The dog ran over to Marion and hid behind her for protection, while our dogs were attacking. That resulted in Marion being pushed up against our front door with the strange dog trying to get into our house to hide! The mutt ended up in the corner by our front door, and while our mastiff had her jaws around the mutt’s neck to keep it down, our toy poodle was trying to bite at the tail!
This grumpy old man got up and also ventured outside to have a stern talk with the dogs. I get kind of cranky without my full eight hour beauty sleep, and I wanted the commotion to end so that I could go back to bed. Lady ran inside right away when I opened the door, and we managed to get the mastiff and the toy poodle to stop what they were doing, and chased them inside as well. My demeanor must have scared the mutt, as I was standing there in my pyjamas with a hairdo that made me look like a mad scientist. The mutt just took one look at me and ran to hide under the low deck. Oh well, hopefully the mutt will find the way home. I grumbled and snarled at our dogs to let them know what I thought of their performance, and then I went back to bed dreaming about ways to keep the dogs quiet in the morning. Marion drove off to work about 7:30, and I got up at 8:00. My grumbling and snarling must have worked, because the dogs were very well behaved and super quiet. The mutt had disappeared and all was good in our little fiefdom.
Moving forward amid adversity Many of us have to endure crushing adversity in our life time. Many times we can feel completely devastated by the event. We may feel as if we will never see the light of day again. This event may have been an illness, loss of a job, an accident, marital problems, a divorce or a death to mention only a few. So how did we deal with these situations? We will most likely deal with adversity much like we deal with life in general. Some people are very emotional as they walk through life, so in time of adversity, emotions will also run high. If we are calm and approach things ‘one day at a time’ in life, we no doubt we will deal with difficult situations in the same fashion. It is important to give ourselves the time and space we need to absorb the situation in front to us. It is going to take some time to work through our shock, fear, denial, sadness and whatever other emotions we may be experiencing. After the shock has worn off, we start to deal with the situation; we can begin the journey of healing and re- building
FROM MOURNING TO JOY... Column by Margaret Anne Yost our lives again, or we can stop living and let the adversity destroy us. The choice is ours to make. The healing journey may take months or even years to accomplish. Each morning we can wake and ask our Creator for strength to move through the day. Being connected to friends and family can be of great assistance to us at this time. True friends and close family will understand our circumstance. They will listen to our story and allow us to talk through the difficult situation. We, in turn, need also to accept the offer of their company and friendship. To heal from any adversity, we need to focus on change and moving forward. Dealing with adversity is much like driving a car: While driving our car we will need to focus
on what is in front of us. We will not do well driving our car if we continue to drive by only looking in the rear view mirror. We need to focus forward to see what lies ahead of us. Yes, it is good to check the rear view mirror from time to time, but the focus needs to be on what is ahead of us. Healing will happen when we focus forward, while taking a quick glance from time to time in the rear view mirror to remember what has happened in the past. We all have this small voice inside of us that calls us to move forward, to heal and to grow. While maintaining a positive outlook on life we can move forward. Yes, some days will be difficult, but by remaining positive, we have the ability to move forward one day at a time and begin a new chapter in our life. A bend in our
Free the children feed the hungry Con’t from Page 1.
The pair spoke to students in the city’s schools about the experiences that caused them to be aware of food security, why it is a major problem around the world, and how the students can start helping now, even at a young age. The initiative is a new one for the charity, something they describe as the fifth pillar for helping people break the cycle of poverty. “When we started on international development, we were focused on a number of different aspects. We started on school building, water projects, healthcare projects and alternative income projects. But what we realized was that at the end of the day if people are hungry, people can’t learn properly, and none of these projects are going to work. We realized that food insecurity is one of the biggest barriers that prevent breaking the cycle of poverty,” Cheng says. Free the Children focuses on the difference young people can make and Lorsch says that it’s proof that young people like the students in Yorkton can make a major difference. “They have this shameless idealism about them. They are not jaded yet, they don’t have this feeling about the world that it can’t be changed. That is where change comes from, change always comes from a spark that comes from young people.” When it comes to Yorkton schools, Lorsch says that the area has embraced
the projects Free the Children is talking about and local students have the “shameless idealism” that helps raise money and awareness for the cause. “Yorkdale this year raised forty bags of pennies, which provides a thousand dollars for clean water projects around the world. It’s an incredible, almost astonishing thing that they did that within one week. That’s proof to Tania and I that this is a cause that speaks to young people.”
road of life is not the end of the road... unless you fail to make the turn. “Some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.” – Garth Brooks Margaret Anne Yost nursed for 35 years. Returning back to school I completed classes from the Red River College in the areas of Gerontology, Bereavement, Death and Dying. For twelve years I worked in bereavement support at a funeral home. At present I am employed as an Interim Parish Worker at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Melville, Sask. I also enjoy my role as homemaker, wife, mother and grandmother.
The following will show you that there are dogs with special skills. An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him. He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, a pessimist by nature, and invited him to hunt with him and his new dog. As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by. They fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than his paws wet. The friend saw everything but did not say a single word. On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, “Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?” “I sure did,” responded his friend. “He can’t swim. Are dogs smart? You bet they are, just read on. A dog walks into a butcher shop with a purse tied round his neck. He walks up to the meat counter and calmly sits there until it’s his turn to be served. A man, who is already in the butcher shop, finished his purchase and notices the dog. The butcher leaned over the counter and asked the dog what it wanted today. The dog put his paw on the glass case in front of the ground beef, and the butcher said, “How many pounds?” The dog barked twice, so the butcher made a package of two pounds of ground beef. He then said, “Anything else?” The dog pointed to the pork chops, and the butcher said, “How many?” The dog barked four times, and the butcher made up a package of four pork chops. The dog then walked around behind the counter, so the butcher could get at the purse. The butcher took out the appropriate amount of money and tied the two packages of meat around the dog’s neck. The man who had been watching all this time, decided to follow the dog. It walked for several minutes and then trotted up to a house where it began to scratch the door to be let in. As the owner appeared at the door, the man said to him, “That’s a really smart dog you have there.” The owner replied, “He’s not all that smart. This is the second time this week he’s forgotten his keys.” And finally: A man goes into a movie theater with his dog to watch a movie. It’s a romantic comedy and when there’s a funny scene the dog starts laughing. A little later on there’s a sad part and suddenly the dog starts crying. This goes on throughout the entire movie, laughing and crying in all the right places. A man sitting a few rows back has witnessed the entire thing and decides to follow the man out. In the foyer, he approaches the dog owner and says, “I saw what your dog did and that’s truly amazing!” “It certainly is,” The dog owner replied, “he hated the book!”

Cardinals build roster for 2013 WMBL season By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer With under three weeks to go until the opening pitch is thrown on the 2013 Yorkton Cardinals WMBL campaign, the Cardinals roster has started to take shape. With the newfound College Summer League status of the Western Major Baseball League, the Cardinals needed to do even more scouring of the college ranks to find their ballclub in 2013 as even local talent must be enrolled in college to play in the WMBL with the new roster regulations of the summer college league. With that in mind the Cardinals have explored all options when looking to add the right combination of ballplayers to attempt to bring a winner to Jubilee Park in 2013. Bringing in players from all over North Amer-
ica and of different cultures and nationalities, the Cardinals are hoping an eclectic mix of players from all over the United States and Canada will be the one that returns the ballclub to success after a less than stellar 2012 campaign where they finished last in their division, missing the playoffs. Yet with the diversity of the roster manager Bill Sobkow is inheriting a team that will be long on players who played on the same collegiate teams as multiple colleges will be represented with pairs of 2013 Cardinals in an attempt to bring a team atmosphere to the ballpark. Lakehead University, Mayville State, Talladega College, and Warner University will all have multiple representatives on the Cardinals who will be hoping that the high number of familiar faces will create a winning atmosphere at Jubilee Park in the short two month WMBL
season. That short season makes the move to bring together groups of teammates a shrewd one as last season the Cardinals failed to get any early season footing in the fast paced nature of the WMBL and eventually had a season to forget at Jubilee Park as one of the WMBL’s worst outfits in 2012, this year the Cardinals will be hoping that their returning players and groups of teammates will be able to lead to a turn of fortunes in the first year of college only rosters in the league. With players that will be excited to travel to Yorkton with familiar faces, it is a gamble that seems like a safe play as the Cardinals have put an emphasis on creating a team culture that will be able to kick things off into a high gear from right on Opening Day.

Yorkton Yorkers cricket becomes city’s newest team By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer With an influx of immigrants from Southeast Asia and a burgeoning foreign student program at the Parkland college, it was only a matter of time before the area’s most popular sport, cricket, came to the forefront of the Yorkton sports scene. With the hard work of Yorkton Cricket Association’s Faisal Anwar, the YCA went from a recreational group of cricket fans and players to a full fledged club competing in the Saskatchewan Cricket Association in their first year of existence, an incredible feat seeing as the city has yet to construct a cricket pitch. “Our group has grown from a group of players practicing and getting together at the Flexihall and Gloria Hayden Community Centre, to a full fledged club in a matter of months showing that we have a group within the city that is passionate about growing the game of cricket and putting together a competitive team,” said Anwar during the Yorkers press conference launch on Monday afternoon outside of City Hall. Anwar, along with some other residents of Yorkton began getting together to play cricket before gauging the interest of the rest of the city, finding that they had the interest, and the talent to put a competitive team together.

Toronto Maple Leafs exposed as team that is not ready to win
Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig had the worst group of centers out of all of the 16 NHL teams that made the playoffs, On defense the Leafs employed the services of Dion Phaneuf, Jake Gardiner, Cody Franson, Carl Gunnarsson, Ryan O’ Byrne, John-Michael Liles, Mike Kostka and Mark Fraser during their series with the Bruins and while Cody Franson and Jake Gardiner managed to over achieve and along with Gunnarsson are valuable to the Leafs future the lack of experience and veteran leadership on the blueline wasn’t going to take them to the promised land in 2013. Put it this way, when John-Michael Lilles is your longest serving NHL defenseman in your lineup, you aren’t a contender. In fact Lilles is just one of two players over 30 on the Leafs entire playoff roster, with fourth line grinder Colton Orr being the second. If you need an eye-opener as to why I am saying that the Leafs Nation should hold their heads a little bit higher and get off the
ledge this morning that should be it. This team was never supposed to be a team to contend for a Stanley Cup in 2013, it was intentionally built to contend in the future. The Leafs entire season has been built on this principle, before the lockout the Leafs had a chance at Roberto Luongo, a veteran goaltender with a 2010 Olympic Gold Medal and 32 playoff wins under his belt, GM Dave Nonis opted to stick with his goaltender of the future in James Reimer who had yet to play a full healthy 82 game NHL schedule as a starter after suffering a concussion last season. Reimer who is 24, was a better player for the future, once again driving home the point that this Leafs team was nowhere near to being all in for this year’s postseason, in fact they weren’t even sitting on a good hand with a roster full of developing talent. That is not meant as a criticism, this Leafs organization has decided that trying to find the
quick fix, something that did not work for nine consecutive years of finishing outside of the playoffs, did not work and instead they would grow their team from the ground up. In 2012/13 they made the coaching change from Ron Wilson to Randy Carlyle and showed promise. This year, they put faith in a young team and created a culture of physical play that paid off. That hard work created better play from their players, who over achieved with the added work rate and with the winning has came fullscale improvement in the entire organization, but champions are not built overnight, you can’t just skip the roster building step with hard work and heart at the end of the day what you saw in the Boston Bruins comeback in the third period was what the Leafs were lacking. The Bruins were a team that won a Stanley Cup two seasons ago, one with surefire Hall of Fame players in Jaromir Jagr and very likely Zdeno Chara. Beyond that the Bruins had four solid lines of talent and when the injury bug that always comes in the playoffs struck their blueline corps they had veteran players like Wade Redden and younger prospects in Dougie Hamilton and Matt Bartkowski to step up. Boston was the deeper, more experienced,
D N A R GOPENING GE13-404CS
bigger, stronger, and faster team with the better goaltender in Tuukka Rask. That is why they were the favorites in the series and that is why they were up 3-1 in the series before the Leafs made their miracle push to send the series as far as they possibly could. When Claude Julien switched Jaromir Jagr onto a line with Patrice Bergeron he could because he had options and could hide a cold player or his fourth line. Randy Carlyle had to make the best out of what he could, especially with Bozak out of the lineup. When Patrice Bergeron scored he already had the experience of nine NHL seasons and multiple Game Sevens to fall back on. The Leafs didn’t. So don’t fret Leaf fans, hold your heads a little bit higher this week. Because even though your team may have blown a 4-1 lead in the third period of a Game Seven, it really was beyond what many expected would even happen. Your young team overachieved thanks to hard work and young players arriving ahead of schedule. If the rebuild of your team sticks to plan, you will be back next year. As for now Leafs fans, you are looking at a team that is still a few pieces and some added experience away from being able to consider itself a contender for that elusive Stanley Cup you have been waiting for since 1967.

that pointed to an early exit out of their first playoff series in nearly a decade. So as many media members in Toronto and throughout the country look at who is to blame for the Leafs monumental third period collapse on Monday night, I am sitting looking at what was an over achieving team reaching their ceiling and then some by even getting to Game Seven of the first round. This isn’t a bad thing before the countless of Leafs fans think I am ripping their team, but rather providing some perspective on what the team has accomplished in 2013. Their loss in Game Seven will sting, as it should after the game was won, but this Leafs team was not going to go on to win the Stanley Cup. This was a team that fired its GM Brian Burke at the start of the season for failing to put together a winner and lacked depth and experience. Their star forward Joffrey Lupul was injured for much of their season and while being scrappy and getting underrated production once again from Phil Kessel (who Leaf fans somehow still manage to hate for whatever reason) they didn’t have a spectacular amount of offensive firepower on any of their four forward lines, and once Tyler Bozak was forced out of the series against Boston they might have

With the Jason Collins situation and Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement both coming in back to back weeks this column has been devoid of any commentary on the NHL Playoffs and given that I am also an editor of an NHL blog (No Pucks Given, feel free to check it out) I feel that it is time to satisfy the hockey crazed masses with my take on the first round of the NHL Playoffs, and more specifically the series that captivated much of Canada in the classic Bruins/Leafs first round series. While many analysts thought that the Bruins would make quick work of Toronto, I had a feeling that while the Leafs would not win their first round series against a Bruins team that was slightly better in every aspect of the game that Toronto would be able to pull off just enough magic to force a Game Seven where anything could happen. I will admit I figured the only way the Leafs could manage to pull that off was to win all of their home games at the ACC to do so, but I was not surprised that the Leafs took it to Game Seven. Yet what has surprised me is the shock that the Leafs did not advance. Yes they went up 4-1 in the third period and by all accounts should have held onto that lead to pull off the 3-1 series comeback, but this was a Leafs team with many flaws and weaknesses

Yorkers cricket launch inaugural 2013 season Cont. from Page 17
With the influx of international students thanks to the Parkland College having one of the largest programs for a regional college of its kind, the Yorkers have been able to assemble a large team of talented young cricket players with many attending classes at the college. To show their support the Parkland College generously donated the Yorkers jerseys to show their support of their students and cultural sports and activities inside the community. William Litchfield of the Parkland College was on hand for the jersey presentation/ launch and mentioned that due to the amount of students the college receives that are players of the sport, the move to support the team was a no brainer. “Having one of the largest international student programs of any regional college of our kind, many of which who are playing for the Yorkers, it is an honor to get the ball rolling for a club in our community that we hope will be around for many years to come” says Litchfield. While the Yorkers have grown overnight, they still do have the problem of not having a proper cricket ground in the city. For the time being in the winter they have trained indoors at various community locations such as the Gloria Hayden and the Flexi Hall, but still without a pitch they
will have the problem of not being able to host any home dates until they will be required to travel almost every weekend to their league play in Regina. Mayor Bob Maloney was on hand to be presented with a jersey, and remarked how impressive it is to see a club in the community grow so rapidly. “This group has gotten together to promote sport in Yorkton as well as bringing a new sport to the community which I feel is great,” said Maloney who also addressed the Yorkers lack of a pitch in the city, saying that it will be an item they will look into in the near future. For those who aren’t aware of the game of cricket it is a sport very similar to the game of baseball and is the second most popular sport in the world behind soccer. Cricket is a batand-ball game played between two teams of 11 players on a roughly circular field at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard long pitch. At each end of the pitch is a wicket composed of three wooden stakes called stumps. Balanced on the top of the stumps are two bails. Each team takes a turn at bat, during which they attempt to accumulate as many runs as possible. The game progresses as one member of the fielding team known as the bowler delivers the ball to one of the two batsmen down the length of the pitch. Batsmen
score runs by putting the ball in play and attempting to run between the wickets. If the ball reaches the boundary on the ground it counts four runs, if in the air, six. Each batsman continues batting until he is dismissed. Fielders may dismiss batsmen by catching a fly ball or disturbing the bails from the stumps while the batsman is between the wickets. Once ten batsmen from the batting side have been dismissed, the team is said to be all out and the two teams change roles. There are many different formats of the game depending on the amount of overs (pitches from the bowler) which determine the length and speed of the format of each type of game. Two formats of cricket are played today in Saskatchewan are T20 and ODP. In T20 cricket, each team’s innings comprises a maximum of 20 overs. An over is six deliveries of the ball by a bowler. In ODP, also known as 40-over cricket, each team bats for a maximum of 40 overs. Yorkton will compete in both the T20 and ODP leagues in Regina with all of their games being on the road for the time being. The city will have to hold off on its first cricket match to be held in the city until a proper ground is constructed, but for now Yorkton’s newest sports club is looking to represent the city in its inaugural season of play.
YUFC U-12’s kick off season By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer With the snow finally gone and the grass growing, it was officially time to kick off footy season as the Yorkton United Football Club U-12’s got the ball rolling on their Regina Soccer Association season with two fixtures in the Queen City. The Yorkton boys had a respectable start to the season on Sunday, May 12 as they met up with two formidable foes on Regina’s Leibel Field. On Mother’s Day the YUFC youth club made their mothers proud, getting four of the possible six points up for grabs on Sunday against the Queen City United and the AC Pumas. The first match-up took place at 11:00 a.m. against the QC United. Jordin Rusnak would start the U-12 season off with a bang, scoring the first goal of the season to make it 1-nil to the away side. At the beginning of the second half, Rusnak once again showed his scoring touch, putting home his second goal to give himself a brace and put the YUFC up 2-nil over the hosts. QC United would wake up after Rusnak’s double, scoring two goals in the second half as the YUFC would need to regroup and settle for a hard fought draw to open up their season, with an evening game still on the schedule. Yorkton played again at 5:00 p.m. this time against Regina’s AC Pumas. Yorkton caught its stride in this back and forth match that saw both teams put in an inspired effort with tons of hard work and hustle on display. The Pumas opened up the scoring early on, but then Jordin Rusnak continued his strong play as he scored twice for another delightful double to put Yorkton in front. The two teams
would trade goals as the scoreboard notched up back and forth to 4-4 with Yorkton goals by Nick Fetsch and Matthew Cochrane. With three minutes left, Nolan Maier scored the game winner. Maier’s winner at the death would put the cherry on top for the U-12’s who fought hard at the end of a day that saw the young footballers play two matches in one day. Fatigue did not appear to be an issue as the YUFC gave pushback at the end of their second game in getting a late goal, showing some fight out of the kids. Coach Mike Jakubiec was pleased with his team today, especially in the second match when they all played very well. Jakubiec mentioned that no matter the final scores, Jakubiec felt that the work the boys did on the field was a winning effort. The Yorkton United FC Chelsea U-12 Boys Div 1 are playing in the Regina Soccer Association League’s top division this spring. They’ve got 14 regular season match-ups against teams from Regina and Moose Jaw that will give the players ample amounts of on-pitch action that will aid their development as players. In addition to the season fixtures extra playoff games will be played that lead to the RSA Cup Tournament in the middle of July as the RSA teams battle for both a league trophy and a league cup in most age divisions just like most leagues. They are also off to a Winnipeg tournament May 31 to June 2. Yorkton will play host to several regular league games at the Parkland Mall Field on the following dates and times: May 25 (12:30 and 5:30), June 15 (11:00 and 4:00), June 23 (11:00 and 4:00).

Cardinals bring in college teammates to add chemistry Cont from Page 17. Highlighting the Cardinals spring roster is Lakehead University’s Rob Shedden. Shedden looks to be a key signing for the Cardinals this summer. The 6’0, 168 pound second baseman is a proven winner with four Thunder Bay Senior Baseball Association regular season titles and three TBSBA playoff titles under his belt. Shedden, a native of Thunder Bay, Ontario, has also represented Canada at the AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) World Series from 2006-2008. Currently Shedden is finsihing his year with Lakehead where he is the starting second baseman for the Thunderwolves. Shedden has just two hits in six games this season for Lakehead for a .133 average. However, he does have eight walks and has scored eight runs. Lakehead does not play many games so expect Shedden to excel when he is able to play on a regular basis. Shedden has previously studied and played at Ellsworth Community College (NJCAA, D-II) in Lamoni, Iowa. Joining Shedden is Lakehead teammate Mike Meany. Meany is regarded as a power hitter and he joined the Lakehead Thunderwolves last season and led the team in the hitting. Like his Thunderwolves teammate Shedden, Meany too played at Ellsworth Community College for a time and the Cardinals will be hoping the relationship between Shedden and Meany leads to a dynamic duo in the lineup for that Sobkow can use at his disposal. A 6’1, 205 third base/pitcher, Meany throws right handed but bats left
handed and has a solid glove in the infield. That was evident in the summer of 2012 when he won the Senior League MVP and AllStar Infielder with the Thunder Bay Coastal Steel Orioles. While the Cards will be adding just two of Thunder Bay’s finest ballplayers out of Lakehead University, three Warner University Royals will be at Sobkow’s disposal for the summer as the club picked up a trio of accomplished ballpayers from the NAIA school as Sergio Perez, Dylan Gross, and Justin Burgress all will be putting on the red and white and will be hoping to become fan favorites at Jubilee Park. Sergio Perez started all 54 games for the Royals in his junior year in 2013. The 5’10, 190 pound light hitting catcher/utility man drove in 22 runs while collecting 50 hits, including eight doubles and one triple in 189 at-bats this season for a .265 batting average. He also stole 13 bases on 16 attempts, walked 16 times and struck out just 25 times making him an extremely efficient batter who can play a variety of positions including backstop. Perez has NCAA D-I experience with the Florida International University Panthers in 2011 and the Cardinals will hope that his consistent play translates with a trip up north. Dylan Gross broke his hand last season, but 2013 has shown that it has been a very successful bounce-back season for Gross as he returned from a broken hand that kept him out of baseball for the summer of 2012. Gross, a 6’0, 180 pound outfielder, has been the offensive leader for his Warner Royals all season leading the team in runs (35), hits (65),

doubles (10, tied with fellow Cardinal recruit Justin Burgess), batting average (.346) and RBI (38). The left handed batting Gross also hit one homerun and two triples in 52 games while walking 30 times (second on the team). Defensively Gross made just 6 errors for a .926 fielding percentage, making him an extremely well rounded talent in all aspects of the game. The sophomore from Tampa, FL has previously won two 6A Florida State Titles with Alonso High School and is currently earning a degree in Business Management. Expect Gross to be one of the leaders offensively for the Cardinals all summer long. Rounding out the Royals trio is Justin Burgress, and infielder from Tampa. Burgess had nearly identical numbers to Gross this season at Warner. The 6’0, 185 pound infielder from Tampa, FL, played
in all 54 games collecting 61 hits including 10 doubles, three triples and three homeruns in 190 at-bats for a .321 batting average and 33 RBI. He also walked 34 times, struck out 30 times and stole 16 bases in 24 attempts. He, like
his Royals running mate Gross, will be counted on to be a source of production in the Cardinals lineup this summer. With the Cardinals season kicking off in less than three weeks, more player and coaching profiles will be
