A fishy situation
Victims Services expands
– late run off causes fish kill
– $128,418 announced
By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The Shellmouth Reservoir, also known as Lake of the Prairies, has seen low levels and, in a more concerning development, a fish kill as a result. Steve Topping, Executive Director, Infrastructure and Operations Division, Manitoba Water Stewardship, recently spoke with The News Review about what caused the problem in the first place. The issue starts with heavy snow which accumulated over the winter, explains Topping. The large snow pack meant that it was anticipated the reservoir would need to capture a significant portion of the runoff, as it is one of the main flood control mechanisms on the Assiniboine river. In anticipation of the heavy runoff, the reservoir was lowered to levels previously seen in 2011. The difference between this year and that, Topping says, is that the spring melt itself was late, which meant that the reservoir was lower for a longer period of time. This meant that water and fish were trapped in depressional areas in the bottom of the reservoir. That late melt caused low oxygen levels in these areas, which has caused a higher fish mortality rate. The other problem is that ice limits the amount of photosynthesis that can happen in these areas, further reducing the amount of oxygen. “When you go late in the year, with no runoff coming into these depressional areas, you get low oxygen levels, because of no refreshing of the water in the areas and due to no photosynthesis occurring,” Topping explains. The late runoff means that the reservoir is about two to three feet lower than they would like it to be since it still has to meet the water needs downstream, but without the inflow necessary to maintain those levels. Topping says that the main reservoir is still in place, and the fish there should be able to weather the poor conditions which caused the kill. He notes that this is not the first time this has happened in the lake, and in those years it quickly recovered, without much impact to the overall fish population. He notes that in 1997 there was a fish kill for the same reasons, and that did not substantially affect the fishery. Continued on Page 3.

CLOSE CUTS – It’s May, and that means it’s time to start raising money for the Brayden Ottenbreit’s Close Cuts for Cancer initiative. Pictured above Clarke Meadows gets the first cut of 2013 at a special kick off event held Saturday in Yorkton. Meadows says he supports the fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society because there is too much cancer out there, and he has had a close call with the disease himself. The big event will take place on May 25 beginning at 10:00 a.m. at the Parkland Mall, those interested in participating can find information online at http://www.braydenscutsforcancer.com/
Parkland Victims Services Inc. recently celebrated 20 years in the community, helping victims of crime go through the process of dealing with the aftermath. The anniversary comes with good news for the program, which will now expand to more communities in the region. The provincial government is increasing funding to the program by $128,418. Those additional funds will be accompanied by expansion into Canora, Esterhazy, Melville, Moosomin, Wadena and Wynyard RCMP detachments. Cheryl Tiller, Coordinator for Parkland Victims Services Inc. says that the new money will pay for additional staff, and the next step will be to recruit volunteers in each community. Tiller says that the organization has been trying to expand for a while, and the announcement of the new funding on the anniversary is exciting, both for the staff and the new communities they will now be able to serve, communities which did not have any services prior to this. “They will have the opportunity to have support from the time of the incident, whether that will be a break-in to a house to a fatal motor vehicle accident to a sexual assault. They will have the opportunity to work with victims services throughout their experience with the criminal justice system,” she states. “We’re just that extra helping hand, to be there. Especially since we have a lot of new people in the area who may not have family and friends close by for support, that’s where we can come in, to help them through. If they have to be a witness in court, we are there beside them to help them through that. We help them walk through all of those processes and we help them as long as they require our assistance. We make sure though that they are provided access to the appropriate services to help them on their road to wellness.” Tiller says that the biggest challenge in the immediate future will be finding volunteers in the new communities. She invites those interested to call her at 306-786-2406 or call their local RCMP detachment.

City is poised for growth By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The City of Yorkton’s slogan is Where Good Things Happen, but what are those things? Mayor Bob Maloney spoke at a recent Chamber of Commerce luncheon to talk about what’s happening in the city right now. The growth the city is experiencing is not slowing down. The enrollment in the Good Spirit School Division is up, and there were $5.7 million in building permits, which includes a 29 unit apartment building on Allanbrooke Drive. “It shows that the boom that Yorkton is experiencing has certainly not bottomed out,” Maloney says. One of the projects getting planned for the near future is the Broadway redevelopment, something Maloney describes as potentially being the secondlargest project the city has undertaken. The plan is to go from 7th Ave. to the Gallagher Centre and replacing the inground infrastructure under the street. Right now, Maloney says,
the city is working with engineers to assess the scope of the work required, as well as how to minimize the impact on area businesses. He says it could go as high as $30 million, depending on how much work is needed. There will also be plans for deep trunk water mains to service lands east of the city. Unlike the Broadway project, this will be a project that is done in phases. It will be a large expense, Maloney warns, but if the city is going to grow it’s an expense that needs to happen. “In order to service new development on the east of the city, we have to do this, we do not have capacity in our existing system,” Maloney says. On the subject of water people don’t want, he says that storm sewer system upgrades are continuing apace, with the ponds being developed and work being done to improve the system. Maloney says that since storms are becoming more common, it’s a system that’s becoming increasingly necessary. The Parkland College’s new
Trades and Technology center was also mentioned as a positive for the city, and Maloney says that as it costs more to send kids to post-secondary, he sees the college having an increasingly important role in the city, as well as having more programs. “Support them in their efforts to grow our college because it’s going to be huge in the future of our city.” The concern right now is getting lots ready for development, and pricing them at a rate people can afford. Maloney says that while the price of lots might look concerning, the city only makes about six per cent on the lots. The lots themselves are selling at a rapid rate. There have been many different businesses built in the last year, the mayor points out, and there is other development happening in the near future. He says this new business is good to see, and the city needs to keep on top of the infrastructure needed to keep Yorkton a place where businesses want to invest and develop.

Celebrating 130 Years of Bringing Family & Friends Together 1960 - 1969 Planning Begins For A New Civic Centre The practice of taking tenders for the concessions for the fair carried on throughout this decade. The Rotary Club of Yorkton was a regular at one of the three booths located behind the grandstand, with the Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League and the Westview United Church often being successful on the other two booths. The Liberal Ladies Association and the Yorkton Terrier Club each had a try at running one of these booths as well. The barn booth was tendered as well, but went to the Tonkin Ladies Curling Club every year. The grandstand concession was generally run by the Rokeby Curling club. The Dining Hall concession went to Mrs. A. Ingham in the early part of the decade, with Knox Presbyterian Church winning the concession later in the decade. In 1967 the Church offered to install new propane stoves in the Dining Hall at a cost to the Exhibition Association of $200, to which the board agreed. While the concessions, midway and grandstand were regular features of each Yorkton Summer Fair, there were some different events each year. In 1961 the Kinsmen Club was allowed to have a lamb barbecue and build a pit for fire, with the proviso that if smoke became a problem that they would either have to close up shop or change their fuel. !963’s fair featured McPhail Helicopter renting space at the fair, and the YorktonMelville Health Region being allowed to show films. A harmonica man outside the grandstand drew large crowds in 1965, and a side show in 1967 ‘the car of tomorrow’ attracted a lot of teenagers. The Board was always seeking to improve the fair, and sent at least a couple of directors to other fairs in the province each year to see what might be done differently. While they always returned with some suggestions or ideas, the visiting directors were often pleased to report that Yorkton’s fair was much superior in many aspects. The question of admission charges was considered on more than one occasion. There was talk at the Western Canada Fairs Association convention of fairs who had taken on a one

New junior directors in these years include Blake Harris, Ronnie Anstey, Doug Curson, Harvey Wegner, Keith Sherwin and Grant Tullock. Some annual meetings required an election of directors to be held, others had only 13 nominations for the 13 open positions (half the board is elected each year). In 1967 the annual meeting shows President W.H. Burkell implementing a novel election concept - with 14 men nominated for the 13 positions, he instructed the shareholders to vote for the one nominee they didn’t wish to see on the board. Norm Roebuck, a former president of the Association is elected president of the Western Canada Fairs Association in 1964. Also in that year, Miss Weinmaster of the Yorkton 4-H Beef Club, coached by director Pete Petersen, wins the CJGX trophy for public speaking, and Gerald Erhardt of the same club wins the Saskatoon competition, giving him a trip to compete at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. The Farm Boys and Girls Camps were going through some changes - in 1961 a new program was implemented where each year’s boys camp had a theme. The theme in 1961 - Farm and Home Safety, with Sask Power providing a power safety demonstration. The theme in 1962 was Field Husbandry. The secretary manager’s salary was raised to $3600 per year in 1962 and to $4200 in 1964. A gestetner and typewriter were purchased in 1963 to save on printing costs. The seed fair is doing well at the beginning of the decade, breaking all records in 1962, but by 1967 the committee recommends discontinuing the show. The Association continues to sponsor short courses offered through the university, and sets up a continuous program of courses in 1964. In 1969, the Board agrees to consider selling some land to A & W if negotiations can be successfully completed.

LDM takes sole ownership
Louis Dreyfus Canada Ltd. has announced it has purchased the minority ownership interest in its Yorkton canola crushing facility that had been held by affiliates of Mitsui & Co., Ltd. (“Mitsui”). The deal took effect on March 29, 2013. Louis Dreyfus Canada now owns 100 per cent of the facility. Louis Dreyfus Canada and Mitsui determined, after a review of the Yorkton investment, that this transaction best served the interests of both companies as they continue and further develop their commercial relationships. According to Brian Conn, Louis Dreyfus Canada’s VicePresident, Oilseeds, the compa-
ny anticipates a seamless transition for customers and suppliers. “For canola growers dealing with the facility, it will be business as usual,” says Conn. “There will be no personnel changes at the facility as a result of the transaction and we will continue to provide a high level of service to our growers.” The facility opened in 2010 with a rated crushing capacity of 2,500 tonnes per day. This summer and fall, Louis Dreyfus Canada will make a significant capital investment to increase capacity to 3,000 tonnes per day, making the Yorkton facility one of the highest-capacity canola crushing plants in North
America. Based on the 13.3 million tonnes of canola seed grown in Canada in 2012, the expanded facility will be able to crush approximately eight per cent of the country’s canola seed production under one roof Conn says that the purchase and the planned expansion demonstrate Louis Dreyfus Canada’s commitment to and confidence in the canola industry. “Global demand for Canada’s healthy, versatile canola oil continues to grow,” he adds. “Having a larger facility will allow for a deeper relationship with canola growers, as we work together to meet this demand and bring greater value to our customers around the world.”

Taxing situation made easier If you haven’t already done so, you’ve missed the deadline so you had better get filing those taxes. And according to the provincial government, the whole process may not be as painful as you might think. The province reports that income tax reductions by the Government of Saskatchewan since 2007 have resulted in significant savings for families and individuals. For example, says Finance Minister Ken Krawetz, a family of four with $50,000 in annual income will pay $207 in provincial income tax in 2013, compared to $2,302 in 2007, representing tax savings of $2,095 annually. “These significant cuts to provincial income tax are making a huge difference in terms of disposable income and quality of life for Saskatchewan people,” says Krawetz. “Saskatchewan is now extremely competitive compared to other provinces in Canada in terms of taxation, and as part of our Plan for Growth we intend to keep it that way.” According to the numbers, in terms of all provincial taxes, that same family will pay $668 in Saskatchewan in 2013, compared to $2,915 in Manitoba, $4,325 in British Columbia and $5,400 in Quebec. “In keeping with the Plan for Growth, our government will ensure that Saskatchewan continues to have a competitive tax environment that will attract and retain individuals and businesses to our province,” Krawetz adds. “Moving forward, we will continue to cut taxes for Saskatchewan people, provided those tax reductions are affordable and sustainable, within a balanced budget.” We know we have to pay the piper – for the benefit of the province and its residents – but at the end of the day if we can keep a little more in our own pockets, the more power to us!
Do a good deed – pay it forward Pay It Forward... “A phrase used to imply or otherwise act upon the action in which one would perform a deed of good service onto, for, or in the favor of another person or group of persons with the sound intentions that the only thing they do in return is to perform a deed of good service onto, for, or in the favor of another person or group of persons where in which they should maintain the same sound intentions of the individual or group who performed a good deed unto them. This method of kindness is infallible...” And it is. While we don’t all practice it, most of us have heard of the concept – “paying it forward.” From the touching and tragic story of six year old Chase Kraynick, who inspired the entire region to rally together to bring a new splash park to the Canora area, to Oprah giving out cars to families in need, examples are aplenty across the planet if we care to take a look. A huge believer in the idea, and also someone who likes to practice the concept, it never fails to makes me smile to see when things like this unfold. Most will know what the online garage sale site is on Facebook. For those who don’t it’s basically a
garage sale where everything is listed in categories and people can shop online. There’s money to be made and it’s a great way to pick up some quality finds. The other day I happened to be perusing the site, not looking for in particular Shannon Deveau anything when I noticed a post by a young, Yorkton gal and I admit it brought a tear to my eye. A beautiful grad dress that she could have easily made a tidy sum on, her post offered the dress free to any young girl who couldn’t afford a gown of her own. “Every girl deserves to feel like a princess and special,” I believe I read. What a fantastic gesture! What a wonderful and thoughtful young lady! Captivated by the post I was the first to hit “like.” Not surprisingly the “likes” kept on coming until they reached in the hundreds. Comments also began to follow, many praising the girl and then came others that opted to follow suit. More dresses were being donated and people were inspired to “pay it forward.” It’s a simple concept and all it takes is to lend a helping hand, flash a smile, buy a cup of coffee or carry a bag of groceries.... The list is endless and the ways are many. Just think if we all did our part what better places our communities would be.

Keep the camera in your pocket at a concert Recently the band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have begun posting signs at their concerts, asking fans to put away their cell phones and other cameras. They ask fans do this as a courtesy not just to the band, but to the other people at the show. As someone who has said unkind things about the people who use their phones at the movies, I find myself agreeing with them. Now, for concerts I can understand the compulsion to whip out your phone and take a photo, it’s a way to remember the experience and document a good time. But I understand why a band would want people to holster their cameras, and at a recent concert I found myself wishing that the people around me would put their cameras away and just enjoy the performance. It was partially because of the distraction, but also because of the sheer futility of their efforts. I have taken photos of concerts through work, as that has allowed me to take reasonably high quality equipment and also get very close to the stage. Concert photography is very difficult, I have discovered, and without those advantages you’re going to get pictures that simply aren’t very good. It’s a situation with strange light, long distances and lots of movement. You need good equipment to get anything remotely viewable, because cheaper cameras just
Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger aren’t designed to handle the variables concerts involve. The resulting images for most people in the crowd will be much like those I saw on the cameras of the people surrounding me. They will be blurry, both because they are out of focus and because the performers are moving. They will be distant, because unless you have the appropriate passes you’re going to be far from the stage. You will not communicate that you’re seeing your favorite performer playing your favorite song. Instead, you’ll just distract everyone, as you try in vain to get something resembling what you’re seeing in front of you.
Since it’s impossible to get that photo, why not just enjoy the show? It’s going to be more fun if you’re not fretting about trying to get a picture and distracting not only others, but yourself as well. The more time you spend fiddling with camera settings, attempting to zoom in from a far distance, and getting frustrated by the indistinct blur you capture, the less time you’re spending just enjoying the show. The performance is happening right in front of you, and if it’s good enough that you want to remember it, you’re going to remember it anyway. If I’m going for my own personal enjoyment, I don’t have my big camera on me, and I find it much more rewarding to keep my phone firmly in my pocket. The reason is simple, it’s much more fun to just be entertained for a few hours than to document it. I say this as someone who enjoys taking concert photos when I have the chance, it’s an entirely different animal than just showing up and having a good time. It’s work to get that perfect shot, and as much as I enjoy the challenge it’s not the same as sitting back and enjoying the concert. Next time you’re at a show, unless you’ve got the right pass, holster that camera. It will make the event more fun for you, the person behind you, and the band itself.

Your letters of the Week
Time to develop a conscience Hats off to our To the Editor: Looking at pictures of a smiling Rehtaeh Parsons is heartbreaking. The Halifax teenager took her own life after a photo that allegedly depicted her being sexually assaulted by a group of boys was shared, and quickly reached everyone she knew. Bullied harassment followed, followed by her death. Imagine the level of shame the 17-year-old felt, while keeping in mind adolescents are basically linear thinkers in a non-linear world. Faced with a devastating assault on her character, and maybe an uninvited assault on the body and emotions as well, her life, to her, might have suddenly seemed to be irreparably damaged by the public nature of it all. The subsequent and current media focus has revolved around the nature and context of bullying, shifting some toward the puzzling response of the policing agency responsible for investigating the assault, and the role of socalled social media. Let’s be clear. At its foundation, this circumstance is not fundamentally a media issue. Yes, we now have access to tools we can use to immediately and personally “publish” information we have, including photos, videos and gazillions of likes, pet peeves, social commentary and criticism, some of which is enlightening, but most is... well... aren’t. The fact that we are able to
do this doesn’t force us to do so. From the invention of the printing press, radio, television, and now the internet, technological change has continuously pushed media into new ways to present information. Unquestionably, these changes have adjusted the way we use and understand information, which in turn encourages development of new ways to communicate, but in no way does this liberty to publish imply permission to mistreat others. This applies to so-called social media as well. The technically derived option to share, doesn’t mean to we have to do so, but certainly means that, if we do, we need do so in ways that are generally acceptable to the community. Could social media sites, and digital media companies generally, do a better job monitoring and training users, and especially children, in proper use? The answer is, of course they could. In cases such as tragic death of a precious young person could parents, police, educators and society generally do a better job? The answer is clearly yes. I don’t presume to have all or any answers for parents and police on the subject of bullying, except to suggest that everything adolescents do, good and bad, is a reflection of the society that defines them. While bullies of all ages should be held accountable, we need to accept the fact that the way we live and the values we promote are part of the problem. I do have more practical suggestions for social policy makers
and social media providers, including social engagement sites like Facebook, search engines, information aggregators, and cell phone companies. Policy makers could easily expand the definition of child pornography to include the posting or sharing of any image of the person under 18 seemingly engaged in a sexual act of some kind. The legislated policing focus in this area has been rightly on trafficking in child porn, and attempting to disrupt those networks. This difficult and expensive work could also be one way to actively hold this type of bully accountable, and to warm kids that this is not a game. The act of sharing and posting Rehtaeh’s picture should have automatically triggered an investigation. Period. Social media of all kinds could step up too and stop counting its billions in earnings for a few minutes, and agree as an industry to require a warning to anyone posting or sharing any visual material along the lines of: “Before posting or attaching your images or video consider whether the material may be illegal, offensive, or may cause emotional, and physical harm to another person.” While they are at it, how about developing an application included on phones for free that provides some common sense rules that young people could access. Call it the Rehtaeh app. Terry Field, Troy Media, Corp.
Seven conservative tricks to balance
To the Editor:
Before the Harper Conservatives inherited, in 2006, ten years of Liberal balanced budgets and robust surpluses, the last time a Conservative government actually balanced a budget for Canada was 101 years ago. The Prime Minister was Robert Borden (originally a school teacher, incidentally). He too inherited his surplus from a Liberal predecessor, Sir Wilfrid Laurier. But he managed to maintain it for only one year before dropping into deficit. The Harper government behaved in a similar manner. Through excessive spending and reckless budgeting between 2006 and 2008, they put Canada back into the red again BEFORE, not because of, the recession which hit in late 2008. And they haven’t balanced the books since. Now in Budget 2013, the Conservatives claim they’ll eliminate their deficit by 2015. Isn’t that convenient – just on the eve of the next federal election! A close look at their financial plans pro-
vides ample reason to be suspicious. Here are seven of their fiscal tricks: 1. Rosy growth estimates -– To puff up government revenues, the Conservatives have based their fiscal planning on optimistic projections of economic growth. They ignore the reality that in years just past their numbers have never been correct. Time and again their initial forecasts had to be downgraded, as both the International Monetary Fund and the Bank of Canada have just done once again in the past month. 2. Deficient reserves – To create the illusion of more financial flexibility than they really have, the Conservatives have lowballed the “reserves” that should be in place to serve as fiscal shock-absorbers against future economic setbacks. The amounts set aside should grow in outer years because the risks are greater, but this government has foolishly flatlined them going forward. 3. Exaggerated lapses – When a government department doesn’t use all of its budget in any
given year, the excess money naturally “lapses” back into the central treasury. The Conservatives are counting on very large lapses over the next several years. In other words, they’ll make lots of big announcements, but never actually spend the money. 4. Excessive optimism about catching tax cheats – While cracking down on those who don’t pay their rightful taxes is an absolute necessity, the Conservative claim of a balanced budget depends heavily on quickly collecting billions in unpaid taxes. That seems highly improbable at a time when they’re chopping the resources needed in the Revenue agency to go after the cheaters. 5. Big program cuts – For big programs like Infrastructure, the government claims to be increasing its investment. But any hypothetical increases are actually years down the road, after 2015. It’s a trick called “multiyear bundling” and “backend loading”. 6. Big tax increases – Despite false claims to the contrary, this government
is increasing taxes in dozens of nefarious ways – on everything from hospital parking fees to cosmetic wigs for cancer patients. The two biggest types of Conservative tax hikes are higher tariffs-taxes on imported goods (costing Canadians an extra $333-million every year) and higher Employment Insurance payroll taxes (costing employers and employees an extra $600-million every year). 7. Claiming before proving – Using all these tricks to concoct the false illusion of a balanced budget by 2015, the Conservatives will claim to have met their fiscal objective just before they call an election and before proof to the contrary can become available. In the normal financial cycle, the audit report on the government’s books won’t get published until much later – i.e., well into 2016 – long after any election has come and gone. So Parliament has a big job to do to find and expose the truth before Canadians vote. Ralph Goodale, MP, Wascana, SK.
It was their war, it’s our legacy: remember
To the Editor:
In 2013, we mark the Year of the Korean War Veteran and the 60th anniversary of the Korean War armistice. As a member of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program, I am part of its Operation Legacy, a group of committed young people who are dedicated to preserving
Canada’s military heritage. Throughout the year, tribute will be paid to the more than 26,000 Canadians who served in the Korean War, including the 516 who gave their lives. To learn more about this anniversary and Canada’s role in the Korean War, we encourage the public to view The War Amps vignette, Canadians in Korea, on The War Amps YouTube channel
(youtube.com/warampsofcanada). Projects like this are part of Operation Legacy’s goal to carry the remembrance message into the future. With the slogan, “It was their war, it is our legacy,” we pledge to never forget the sacrifices of those who fought for freedom. Keaton Grassie, Saskatoon, SK.
To the Editor: The Canadian Red Cross is celebrating National Volunteer Week thanks the more than 20,000 volunteers who deliver programs and services across the country. In Saskatchewan, 538 volunteers were active this year, assisting thousands of people in need through the delivery of much needed assistance in disaster relief and recovery, violence and abuse prevention education, and injury prevention. Volunteers are the backbone of the Red Cross and serve at all levels of the organization. I am continually impressed, not only by the dedication and compassion of our volunteers, but also by the skills and experience they bring to the Red Cross.

Caution when entering a sponsorship marriage
Helping for health
Every marriage involves a certain amount of risk, but marriages that involve the sponsorship of a non-citizen pose a risk of a different kind – the potential of marriage fraud. That’s the name for an increasingly used scheme in which immigrants marry Canadian citizens simply to gain entry to Canada. Though many offshore marriages succeed in long and happy unions, I’m aware of far too many unhappily-ever-after situations. Financially and emotionally, these marriages prove extremely costly for sponsoring spouses. Along with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) I urge members of the Yorkton-Melville constituency to exercise extreme caution before choosing an offshore marriage. Minister of Immigration and Multiculturalism, Jason Kenney, estimates that “there are countless cases of marriage fraud across the country.” Consultations with Canadians across the country, and especially with victims of marriage fraud, revealed a desire for the government to take some kind of action to stop this abuse. Last October 26, Citizenship and Immigration Canada introduced a regulation that changed the rules. Prior to that date, a sponsored spouse, common-
DONATION PRESENTED – Donations are continuing to pour in in support of The Health Foundation’s ongoing efforts to bring new and improved health services to the community. Pictured at left, Dean Shyiak the owner/operator of the Yorkton McDonald’s presents a cheque for $1,200 to Ross Fisher, Executive Director of The Health Foundation. The donation came about because of a promotion McDonald’s ran during the two days of the Radiothon, which was raising funds for the new regional hospital. “During the Radiothon we ran a promotion where we would donate $1.00 for every Smoothie, Egg McMuffin, Bacon & Egger or Sausage McMuffin that was purchased April 22 and 23, the two days of the annual radiothon, details Shyiak. “We were pleased with the results, and we are very pleased to continue working with The Health Foundation to improve our local healthcare.” “We are grateful to have such a great ongoing relationship with Dean and Tricia Shyiak, who own the McDonald’s here in Yorkton. They have supported every major project we have raised money for and we are please they continue to work with us each year,” concludes
Parliamentary Report Op-Ed Column by Garry Breitkreuz law or conjugal partner (in relationships without children) who proved not willing to abide by the sponsorship agreement and remain in the marriage, could leave the relationship without consequence to his residency status or sponsorship arrangements. Sponsoring spouses had no recourse but to continue to fulfill his/her financial obligations of sponsorship for the required three-year period. Those Canadian spouses are still required to fulfill their three year obligations – including the responsibility to repay any social services costs incurred by their spouse. But immigrant spouses or partners whose applications for permanent residency (PR) were received by CIC on or after October 25, 2012 must now live in a legitimate relationship with their sponsor for two years from the day they receive their PR status. If they choose to leave prior to two years, their status may be revoked. Exceptions to the law are made in cases involving children born
to the marriage, abuse or neglect of the person being sponsored, or death of the sponsoring spouse. Palwinder Singh Gill, founder of the Canadian Marriage Fraud Victims Society of Canada (www. immigrationmarriagefraud.ca) praised the change. “I think it is a very good measure. Canada’s generous family sponsorship program was being abused because many people were marrying only to get a permanent resident card, and then leave their partners. With this rule, those abusing the system will think twice.” Along with the CIC, I strongly caution members of my constituency to take prudent thought before entering a marriage involving sponsorship of a non-citizen. Unfortunately, the duplicity of some has ruined it for many legitimate potential relationships.

Realtors give back: local Habitat group benefits The Association of Saskatchewan REALTORS® (ASR) has awarded grants to six community organizations – including one in Yorkton – as part of their ongoing Quality of Life in Saskatchewan initiative. The cheques were presented in Regina during the inaugural Legacy Gala. The Gala Awards competition was launched earlier this year by the ASR where charitable organizations with project ideas that support the ASR’s Quality of Life principles were encouraged to apply. “This new Legacy Grant Program is just one more way in which the Saskatchewan real estate industry is working hard to improve the quality of life across the province”, explains Bill Madder, Chief Executive Officer of the Association of Saskatchewan REALTORS®. “The ASR is very proud to be able to support these organizations in their efforts to improve the quality of life in their local communities.” Six organizations were selected from twenty-six applications from across Saskatchewan and each was awarded a grant of $5,000 to continue the work they do in their communities. From six different regions, the recipients are:
• Battlefords Boys & Girls Club; • Moose Jaw Women’s Transition House; • Prince Albert Self Help and Recreation and Education; • Regina Dress for Success; • Saskatoon Children’s Hospital Foundation; • Yorkton Habitat for Humanity. The recipients were chosen based on the quality of their application and how well their projects met the following Quality of Life principles: • Support shelter-related services in our communities; • Enhance environmental sustainability, protection and/or conservation of our natural areas; • Support public education on the importance of private property rights; • Promote safer neighbourhoods and/or improved community services; • Enhance and promote community development and better opportunities for “at risk” populations and/or disadvantaged citizens. Funding for the Legacy Grant Program comes from a major $100,000 endowment and a $30,000 start-up contribution established last fall by the
Association Saskatchewan REALTORS® through the Saskatoon Community Foundation. “It’s impressive to see the local dedication towards improving the quality of life in our communities”, continues Madder. “We are quite excited to be able to embark on this annual investment and further build on the contributions in our communities.” The Legacy Grant Program will be receiving applications again in early 2014. More information can be found at www.saskatchewanrealestate. com. The Association of Saskatchewan REALTORS® (ASR) is the primary advocate for organized real estate in Saskatchewan. As a not-for-profit organization, it provides direction, leadership and support services to its members, the industry and the public. Through effective communication and quality education, the ASR also strives to ensure a healthy real estate environment that allows for increased quality of life in our communities. Real estate is at the core of our economy and advocating for a strategic sustainable approach ensures continued growth and prosperity in Saskatchewan.

Examining the feebased pricing model According to PriceMetrix, investors have been steadily transitioning to a fee-based pricing model for their portfolios. The justreleased report aggregated data representing 7 million retail investors, 500 million transactions, and over $3.5 trillion in investment assets. PriceMetrix found that, from 2011 to 2012, feebased assets increased from 26 per cent to 28 per cent while average household assets increased 13per cent from $435,000 in 2011 to $491,000 in 2012. Investors prefer the feebased model over traditional commission-based accounts for many reasons, but transparency often ranks at the top of the list. Investors in feebased accounts pay a set percentage typically tied to the size of the account. Since everything is covered in one inclusive fee, investors know precisely what they are paying for. There is no longer any confusion regarding the cost for professional portfolio management, as most firms report these costs directly on monthly account statements. Fee-based accounts also encourage more efficient portfolio management. By way of their structure, fee-based accounts take commission concerns out of transactions, ultimately encouraging more active management and regular rebalancing. For instance, an advisor may wish to take advantage of a bumpy market by slowly entering a position.

www.reynoldsinglis.ca This can be costly in a commission-based account though, so an advisor may be less inclined to encourage this for fear that the commissions would outweigh the benefits of the dollar-cost averaging. This is not a concern in fee-based accounts because the trades are included within the fee. Cost savings are another potential benefit of feebased accounts. According to data from PriceMetrix, the average equity trade size is $22,240. Therefore an investor with a $500,000 portfolio making 20 trades per year, and charged a commission of 2.50 per cent, would incur total commission costs of $11,120. If that investor were instead in a fee-based account charging 1.50 per cent, they would save $3,620 per year. The investor may also benefit from tax advantages because fees linked with non-registered fee-based accounts are generally tax deductible. Perhaps one of the biggest advantages with feebased accounts comes from additional values received. Advisors who provide fee-based services tend to focus holistically
on wealth management by providing research and guidance on associated factors such as tax efficiencies, estate planning, education and retirement planning, insurance needs and implementation strategies. Tending to these matters can prove advantageous. According to the Investment Funds Institute of Canada, investors who work with financial advisors have nearly three times more wealth and investable assets on average than those who do not. As with any professional service, portfolio management fees are charged for services rendered and there must be value received to justify the cost. An advisor should be prepared to articulate the values clearly, so that the investor can make the right choice.

What’s up at Good Spirit? Submitted by Carol Olsen Mother Nature is sure messing with us! Will this winter ever end? We’re keeping an eye on the golf course. The snow was disappearing... and then… at the end of April it was white… now we are hoping that Guy and his crew will soon be out, to get this course ready for us anxious golfers. Please mark the following dates on your calendar for upcoming events in the community. On May 5 at 2 p.m. the Community Association Annual Meeting will be held at the Good Spirit Park Rec. Centre. We’d like residents to attend to give their input on activities that they wish to see happen in the community, as well as hear what is planned for the coming year. We will also be doing a membership drive at the meeting. Membership in the Community Association is $10 per family. This helps with expenses for the year. It would be nice to see some new faces on the executive, so please give it some thought and plan to attend. There will be a Park clean-up on May 15 at 9 a.m., weather permitting. Friends of the Community Association should be there for to help clean up a few weeds, dead fall trees and give the rink boards a 2nd coat of paint. We are looking for a volunteer to do the phone fan for the Community Association. It is a good way to let people know activities that are planned in the community. Please give it some thought and let us know if you could help us out. The Community Association is planning the Annual Pancake Breakfast for June 9th from 8 to 11 a.m. at the camp kitchen in Spilchen Meadows. Pancakes and sausages are $5 a plate and young children free. Community Association memberships will also be sold at the breakfast. We are also planning a fundraising supper at Tapps in the fall, so keep that in mind. We still need to fund raise, as we have a dream… the dream is
to close in the windows and insulate the camp kitchen. The insulation will take place this spring. The Hamlet Board Annual Spring Information meeting will be held at the golf course club house on May 19, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Topics for discussion: Review of the 2012 Financial statement, approval of the budget for 2013, approval of the mill rate for 2013 and review and approval of the new procedures for future Hamlet elections. Discussion may also take place on the local transfer site, the R.M. dump site, the lagoon and the spring run off. So far the melt has been slow and our cleaned out waterways are working satisfactorily. George and Lori Korman have sold their home and are moving to Moose Jaw. They have lived here for nearly 20 years. Both George and Lori served our community as counselors on the Hamlet Board, and Lori was also on the Community Assoc. Executive. They enjoyed golfing and snowmobiling here and say they will miss us… as we will miss them. We hope that they will keep in touch. Thanks to Shawn Steiner for grooming the cross-country ski trails for us this past winter. It was a big job with all the snow that we received. Shawn says that he and Thor enjoyed the job. It was an excellent winter for snowmobilers. Barry Bradshaw would like to remind all ATV users to stay off the snowmobile trails. Permission has been given by farmers in the area to the snowmobile assoc. for snowmobiles only. There is a “new look” indoors at the Good Spirit Market. They installed new flooring, which brightens up the store. Fern says that now she is doing ordering for the spring and summer, and they should be ready for a busy season. Come in and meet some new staff. Welcome to Myrna, Linda and Jessica… we hope that you enjoy working in our community. That’s it for this month... Ever wonder why there isn’t mouse-flavored cat food?

Relationships don’t just happen they take time A relationship is unique link, an association or a special connection between people. We all need relationships. Good relationships can strengthen our friendships and family connections. It’s easy to meet people and start a conversation, but building and maintaining personal relationships takes much time and effort. Our relationships are all unique and people come together at different times and for many different reasons. A great relationship has two components: First, appreciating our similarities, and second, respecting our differences. God knows when we need people in our lives and He places special people in our lives when we need them the most. When it comes to building relationships, being honest is never an option but a necessity. Honest, direct communication is the key to any relationship. Being able to speak and share ideas is vital, and listening is the other half of the component. Being an active listener is a must to all conversation. In today’s society few of us build strong lasting relationships. Yes, we may have many friends on face book, but in my eyes that does not building a strong relationship. One needs that face to face contact and one need
FROM MOURNING TO JOY... Column by Margaret Anne Yost to spend time together. We text, we tweet and we are on face book – all forms of communication. We spend at lot of time chatting on line. A text message can be encouraging, but just think what a face to face visit could do. In today’s society we have little time to visit and share our feelings. When we give someone our time, we are giving a portion of ourselves that will always be treasured. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, or the smallest act of kindness, all of which have the potential to turn someone’s life around. The ministry of presence is still the greatest gift we can offer each other. Building a firm relationship takes time and work. Good relationships don’t just happen; they take time, patience and two people who truly want to work at it. Healthy relationships are a source of happiness and well-being for all people. People who have healthy longterm relationships usual-
ly are happier, have fewer health problems, and live longer lives. In life we can realize that there is a purpose for each relationship we build. Some relationships will test us, some will teach us, but most of all, many relationships will bring out the best from within us. The greatest mistake we humans can make in our relationships is we: listen only half, understand quarter, think zero, and react double. – Source Unknown Margaret Anne Yost nursed for 35 years.

Sask. Palliative Care Week May 5-11 is Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Week. Hospice Palliative Care is whole-person health care that aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of living and dying. The palliative approach focuses on the person and family, and on their quality of life throughout a life-limiting illness, not just at the end of life. Living well until death, is the goal of care. The Sunrise Health Region staff members provide Palliative Care in a variety of settings throughout the region, from a patient’s home or long-term care facility, to hospitals. Several of the rural hospitals have dedicated Palliative Care rooms where families have the ability to stay comfortably around the clock, utilizing small kitchenettes and beds/pullouts. Many clients, families and volunteer group donations help to purchase much needed equipment and items and to assist health care providers to attend educational events in palliative care. Palliative Care nurses Kim Rutzki, Roxane Brown-Rayner and Charlene Malayney provide comprehensive and coordinated care by working closely with physicians and other health care providers so that terminally ill clients and their families receive the highest quality of care. The Regional Palliative Care Committee works behind the scenes developing policies and procedures, providing direction for the program, promoting and assisting with educational needs of health care providers and dedicated palliative care volunteers. The demands for hospice palliative care continue to grow as people become more aware of the benefits of the service. The goal of the Sunrise Health Region is to raise awareness that palliative care is available to assist people. The region’s webpage contains information about the types of services available and contact information. Requests can also be made through your physician or nurse practitioner.
Children see, children do Parenting tips, submitted by Regional KidsFirst “Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression.” – Dr. Hiam Ginnot If you: show and coach your preschooler on how to handle his/her feelings by being a positive role model... your preschooler will learn how to express anger and frustration safely and, learn how to express caring and empathy for others. Your child is always learning. They learn by what they see. As a parent or caregiver, practice positive behaviors. When children see good things, they begin to mimic the good. However, if you perform negative activities, your children will follow suit. Children see – Children do. For Example: • A positive behavior could be:
Being kind to others. Children with kind hearted parents or caregivers, will more than likely grow up to be kind to others as well. • A positive behavior could be: Eating healthy foods. Children that are given healthy foods will more than likely grow up to have a healthy diet. • A negative behavior could be: Parents or caregivers who often use bad language. Children will learn that bad language is the right language. • A negative behavior could be: Parents or caregivers who use tobacco products. Children will learn that using tobacco products will not harm them. The following video may be offensive to some, but gives a great example on how children learn and copy our behaviors: www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvPAH8qZ3A Children See… Children Do… Be a POSITIVE role model for the children in your life!

In school you can find Colin as a retreat leader, playing basketball, soccer, volleyball, and badminton. He works at the Co-op and is an avid skateboarder and snowboarder. Colin’s leadership shines as a retreat leader, as an AMPO leader and he took a major leadership role when his Christian Ethics 30 class visited and decorated the senior’s homes. He took time with the elderly and made them feel good. Colin attends St. Mary’s parish. Congratulations to Cara Maleschuk and Colin Shewchuk for winning Saint of the Month for March. Sacred Heart would like to thank Western Financial for sponsoring our Saint of the Month.
Ford partners for safety Royal Ford has partnered with Safe Saskatchewan, the Motor Safety Association of Saskatchewan, Crestvue Ambulance, and the Painted Hand Casino to offer a special event focused around encouraging residents to incorporate injury prevention into their every-day lives. The luncheon event will feature a special presentation by Gord Moker, CEO, Safe Saskatchewan. According to Moker, Saskatchewan is dealing with an epidemic of unintentional injuries. “Our hospitalization rate for unintentional injuries is twice that of the national average and our death rate is is 1.4 times the national average. We need to do much more to make people aware of the need for injury prevention, 24/7 Having community leaders like Terry Ortynsky taking safety seriously and taking a lead role in raising the public profile of the importance of safety both at work and at home, will make a significant difference in public attitudes,” says Moker.
Royal Ford has a strong commitment to safety. The dealership has joined hundreds of other companies from across the province in signing onto the Saskatchewan Health & Safety Leadership Charter. The charter was created to support the continuous improvement of healthy and safe workplaces and communities and supports Mission:Zero and the philosophy that the only acceptable number of injuries in our province in ZERO. “Safety is number one for us. We work to ensure that our staff and customers are safe while in our dealership, but also that they’re thinking of it wherever they are,” adds Terry Ortynsky, dealer principal, Terry Ortynsky’s Royal Ford. As a sign of Royal Ford’s focus on safety, Carey Gleason, a technician at Terry Ortynsky’s Royal Ford recently received Saskatchewan’s highest safe worker award – the WorkSafe Saskatchewan’s Safe Worker Award for 2013. The Safe Worker Award
is sponsored by the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour, the Saskatchewan Safety Council and WorkSafe Saskatchewan, the partnership between the Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety. Its purpose is to highlight the important contributions workers make in eliminating or reducing injuries and illness in the workplace, and to recognize an individual who has shown an exemplary commitment to workplace health and safety The luncheon event, which takes place May 9, is free of charge and is open to the public, but seating is limited, so those interested are encouraged to pre-register quickly. The event will take place at the Painted Hand Casino. Those interested in attending are asked to contact Brenda Blommaert at email@example.com or (306) 7822261.

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. I must have Farmer in Training written all over my face! How else could I be so easily recognized outside of Preeceville and area! We became proud grandparents earlier this week. Our granddaughter was born prematurely and was moved from The North Battleford Hospital to Saskatoon, but our daughter-in-law had to stay another couple of days in North Battleford before they could release her. Marion and I traveled to the Saskatoon University Hospital to give support to our son who was there with the baby and also to see our granddaughter. I woke up in the morning, my
wife was busy preparing sandwiches, and she said to me: “Better be quick in the shower, the truck is running and we’re going to Saskatoon!” We were going to surprise Justin. However, just as we got to the hospital, Marion called our daughter-in-law at the hospital in North Battleford, and learned that Justin had traveled there to pick up some breast milk for the baby, and would not be back in Saskatoon for a couple of hours. Well, to pass the time away we decided to have lunch at a decent restaurant, and went to the information desk to borrow the yellow pages. The kind lady behind the counter asked me what I was looking for, and I told her that I would really like to find a steak house. She started giving me
directions when I interrupted her to tell her that we were not from Saskatoon, but from Preeceville, and wanted to find a restaurant close to the hospital. She looked intently at me and said: “Yeah! I know! You’re the guy that writes those farmer stories in the Preeceville Progress!” I’m sure she must have heard the “clunk” when my jaw hit the counter! When I asked her how she came to that conclusion without me giving her my name or any other clue as to who I am, she just smiled and said it was a hunch! She was actually from the Hazel Dell area herself, and had moved to Saskatoon a few years back, and still subscribes to the Preeceville Progress. My book launch at Country
Lane Florists Plus in Preeceville was a great success! And I thank all my local reading fans that stopped by! For those of you that couldn’t make it, I have left an inventory of books at Country Lane Florists for them to sell for me, and they will be happy to provide you with a copy. We finished the week with the book launch at Coles Bookstore in Parkland Mall, Yorkton, where more of my reading fans showed up, which made it another successful event. Coles will maintain an inventory of my book as well. Or you can order your copy on line at: http://theheedlessnorseman.com/ Being an author of books is not as profitable as many people may believe. Just check the following story: Three guys were sitting at a
bar. #1: “...Yeah, I make $125,000 a year after taxes.” #2: “What do you do for a living?” #1: “I’m a stockbroker. How much do you make? #2: “I should clear $110,000 this year.” #1: “What do you do?” #2: “I’m an architect.” The third guy has been sitting there quietly, staring into his beer, when the others turned to him. #2: “Hey, how much do you make per year?” #3: “I guess about $10,000.” #1: “Oh yeah? What kind of stories do you write?” Then there was the writer, a pregnant woman who went into labor and began to yell, “Couldn’t! Wouldn’t! Shouldn’t! Didn’t! Can’t!”? She was having contractions.

Terriers down 2-1 in Canalta Cup Final
By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
After a 2-1 loss in overtime to the Brooks Bandits on Wednesday afternoon, the Yorkton Terriers are sitting in a three way tie for first in the round robin of the Western Canada Cup in what is as expected a very tight tournament. With a competitive field of the best teams in Western Canada, every team in the tournament knew that every game was going to be a battle and for the Terriers that has been no exception as all three of their games have been decided by just one goal in their first three of four round robin games. Jeremy Johnson’s three weekend goals and Tyler Giebel’s three point night Sunday lifted the Terriers to two straight wins to open the tournament after concerns of their busy schedule Saturday/Sunday after
traveling from Saskatchewan to the island city on Friday, but the two wins no have the Terriers sitting at first with a crucial Thursday clash with the Surrey Eagles to decide who gets to play in the 1/2 page playoff semifinal. In the first period the Terriers struck first as Jeremy Johnson picked right where he left off in Games Five/Six, scoring the opening goal of the night off some nice passing with Kailum Gervais on the assist. Nanaimo would get it right back as four year WHL veteran Greg Fraser got the goal for his hometown club to answer Johnson’s first to make it 1-1. Fraser’s former Prince George Cougar teammate Tayler Thompson got one right back for the Terriers to make it 2-1 before Matt Grant got one for Nanaimo to tie things up again in a period where the Terriers could just not keep the lead.
Dylan Baer’s tripping penalty would be the lone penalty for the Terriers in the game, but it cost them as it led to Grant’s goal in a pretty even period of back and forth action with the shots being 17-13 in favor of the Clippers. The second would see some chances both ways, but far less action as the Clippers Colton Dahlen provided the only goal of the period on a wrist shot that beat a screened MacAuley to send the Terriers into the third period down 3-2. In the final seven minutes of the game, the Terriers recaptured the magic that they had during the playoffs as Jeremy Johnson took advantage of a Clippers turnover to tie it up, before the captain Devon McMullen gave the Terriers the lead with just under four minutes left to give Yorkton the 4-3 win, escaping a loss before playing Steinbach Sunday.

YMF benefits from annual Football Night in SK By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer With weather putting a damper on spring football, Yorkton Minor Football soldiered on anyway in preparation of the 2013/14 YMF season with their annual fundraising night. This year’s main targets were the funds for a new washroom/changeroom facility at Kiernan/ Century Field as well as a foundation to give special needs students the help they need to come on road trips with the Gridders/Raiders YMF teams as part of a new initative to allow everyone to experience being part of the Yorkton Minor Football program despite whatever disabilities they may have. Honored guests of the night were Head Coach Corey Chamblin representing the Saskatchewan Roughrider’s as well as former CFL running back Craig Carr who played CIS football on the University of Manitoba Bisons with YMF President and YRHS Sr. Raiders head coach Roby Sharpe. Sharpe mentioned that without the annual Football Night in SK, a lot of the growth the YMF has seen over the last decade would not be possible. “Before this night we were renting our equipment from Regina and didn’t have a spring/summer minor football program” explains Sharpe. “Now we have teams
in every level of the Regina Minor Football League and are now working on growing our infrastructure further
with added facilities to our field,” says Sharpe. Cont. on Page 17

Terriers face crucial round robin finale with Surrey Eagles Cont. from Page 15
Dawson MacAuley was incredible between the pipes yet again for the Terriers, making 39 saves as Yorkton was outshot 42-35 by a Nanaimo team that showed they will leave everything on the ice to defend their home ice as hosts, falling just short in the final ten minutes of the third. Kailum Gervais and Tyler Giebel both had two assist nights to add to Johnson and McMullen’s heroics as well as Thompson who added an assist on the game winner to make it a two point night. McMullen and Johnson’s late heroics were a flashback to Game Six of the Canalta Cup Final as the two once again combined for some late third period magic with Johnson’s second goal tying the game late and McMullen’s winner giving the Terriers the win and preventing them from playing a tiring sudden death overtime session playing the following afternoon against the Steinbach Pistons, who were the team to get the night off on opening night of the tournament. Steinbach would get their chance to kick off the Western Canada Cup Sunday afternoon as the Terriers looked to finish the weekend 2-0 before facing tournament favorites Brooks after a day off on Tuesday. Going into Sunday’s clash with the Pistons the Terriers knew they were going to be in tough against a hot Steinbach team led by head coach Paul Dyck that had the advantage of the night off Saturday as well as seeing the Terriers play live against the Clippers on Saturday. All of that didn’t seem to matter in the early moments as an energetic Terriers team got another opening goal from Jeremy Johnson who scored his third goal of the tournament to make it 1-0. Chase Norrish scored a goal on nice backdoor feed from John Odgers to make it 2-0 Terriers, but as on Saturday against the Clippers the Pistons would not go down without a fight in their opening game of the tournament. The Pistons would get one back less than thirty seconds after Norrish’s marker as Hayden Goderis got the first goal of the tournament for the Pistons to make the score 2-1 after the first period. As in the opening night game, the Terriers could not hold on to the lead their fast start created as the Pistons got one back in the opening five minutes of the second period as Trent Genyk tied things up for Steinbach after the Terriers jumped out to a 2-0 lead. Daylan Gatzke was taken out with a hit to the head by Brendan Hopkins which led to a two minute hit to the head penalty and a ten minute misconduct penalty, but the Terriers powerplay would stay
quiet on Sunday afternoon, ultimately going 0 for 4 on the day. Tyler Giebel would be the hero of the afternoon, taking a pistons turnover on the backcheck and walking in on goal, using some nifty dekes to beat Corey Koop for the unassisted goal in the closing moments of the second to give Yorkton a huge go ahead goal. Dawson MacAuley stayed brilliant in goal for the Terriers on Sunday, especially in the third period. The gigantic goaltending prospect stood his ground in between the pipes and was simply just too hard for the Pistons to solve in the third, turning away 11 shots on way to a 32 save win in goal for Yorkton as the Terriers held on to a 3-2 win despite missing the empty net twice and having Kyle Rous take down Tayler Thompson on an empty net breakaway with ten seconds left. The win gave Yorkton their fifth straight win dating back to the SJHL Final with Humboldt and all but guarantees them a spot in the tournament semifinals with each team having one loss on the weekend. Questions about the Terriers ability to bounce back from playing the hosts on Saturday night were quickly answered as the Terriers scored two very quick goals in the first period and despite for blowing the two goal advantage, were able to hold onto their 3-2 lead for the entire third period, a sign that the Terriers had the legs even after travelling on Friday and playing back to backs on Saturday and Sunday. Tyler Giebel was the difference maker in the win over Steinbach. Partnering on a line with the red hot Jeremy Johnson, Giebel matched his goalscoring linemates tournament production with three points of his own, assisting the two first period goals and beating Koop on a breakaway to earn the game winner in the second in what was the game’s turning point. With Nanaimo’s shocking 7-2 upset over Brooks the Terriers game against the back to back AJHL Champions gave Yorkton a huge opportunity to seal a spot in the 1/2 page playoff semifinal, which would give the Terriers two cracks at one of the two qualifying spots at the Royal Bank Cup. Penalties would become a story of the game early in the contest, as a Josh Ellis kneeing penalty after a bone crunching open ice hit from Dylan Johnson to open the game stole the Terriers early momentum as RJ Reed’s third of the tournament put Brooks up early as Dawson MacAuley was beat by a short side wrist shot for the powerplay marker. Three Terriers penalties in the period led to some major penalty kill-
ing work for Yorkton as Dawson MacAuley bounced back to make 15 saves in the period to keep Yorkton within one, surviving Brooks potent powerplay. The roles reversed in the second period as Brooks took three penalties in the period and the Terriers dominated the shot clock 16-5 in the second frame. After getting the hook in their 7-2 loss to the Clippers, Michael Fredrick showed why he is one of the coveted prospects from scouts in this tournament, making some outrageous saves in the second period as the game remained 1-0 after 40 minutes due to some very talented goaltending from MacAuley and Fredrick. Needing to find a goal in the third, the Terriers made things extremely hard for themselves as two of three roughing penalties from Austin Bourhis came in the final fifteen minutes, including one to draw a Bandits two man advantage with just under seven minutes left. The Terriers killed off the penalty, before Nathan Murray grabbed his first goal of the Western Canada Cup with just under five minutes left in a hard scramble to the net alongside Dylan Johnson who was cred-
ited with an assist. Continous overtime meant that no ties would be in place, and the Terriers would be the victim of sudden death overtime as a deflection would see Shane Pilling’s stick at the point and the Bandits would capitalize as his blast deflected off Macauley’s shoulder and into the goal to get the win. Now with the Terriers loss and Surrey’s 4-0 win over the Clippers Tuesday there will be
some drama and tiebreaking mathematics Thursday as the Eagles and Terriers will clash as two 2-1 teams while the Bandits should win over an 0-2 Steinbach in their final round robin game, meaning that there is a very high possibility that two teams find themselves tied on Thursday. Math aside, Yorkton needs a win over the BCHL Champions on Thursday night to ensure a spot in the all important 1/2 page
playoff, with a loss they will need to face a rematch with Brooks/ Surrey as well as beat Nanaimo/Steinbach to get there which would be difficult. Thursday afternoon will determine the final picture of the knockout round, but the Terriers after three strong outings hope that they will be able to secure the path of least resistance to PEI and the 2013 Royal Bank Cup. A win over Surrey would get them one step closer.
DEVON MCMULLEN scored a late goal Saturday night over the Nanaimo Clippers to help boost the Terriers to 2-1 with one game left in their round robin schedule at the WCC. Surrey will be their final opponent Thursday afternoon.

YMF Football Night in SK draws Riders coach Cont. from Page 15.
Craig Carr, the second honored speaker at the event, talked about how the game of football is just not about wins and losses, it is also about improving as a person, telling his story about turning from a troubled teen to a CFL running back to the sold out banquet. Carr, who played running back with Sharpe at the University of Manitoba and was drafted 10th overall by the Edmonton Eskimos also preached the importance of hard work and the team concept on the field and in life, mentioning that it takes a “village” of people working together to accomplish great things. As the keynote speaker Corey Chamblin came up to talk about his journey from playing football for Tennessee Tech in college to being an NFL journeyman to playing and coaching in the NFL and NFL Europe and ultimately the CFL, where he is now the youngest coach in the league for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Chamblin began his coaching career as a defensive backs coach from 2006-10 starting in 2007 with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers who lost to the Roughriders in the Grey Cup that year. Chamblin then moved from Winnipeg to Calgary the next
year, where in 2008 he won the Grey Cup as their defensive backs coach, staying in Alberta until 2010. In 2010 Chamblin moved from Calgary to Hamilton where he took over as defensive backs coach before moving on to the Saskatchewan Roughriders to become their head coach the following year under the recommendation of Pittsburh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. Chamblin, who is from Alabama talked about the teaching power of the game and how beyond coaching and helping his team win he takes the most joy in seeing his players grow as men. “Beyond helping the players I coach make their assignment or win a game for us or further their careers, I am most proud and honored to help my players grow as men, be better fathers, be better husbands, and be better people,” explains Chamblin. Chamblin also talked about the Riders additions this offseason, including the league’s best active raceiver in Geroy Simon, who stands to hold all of the CFL receiving records by the end of his career and how he expects the Riders to compete for a Grey Cup with it being at Taylor Field this Novemeber. “In my first year I talked about us being competitive, now I feel after last
year and the offseason, we can start talking about Grey Cups,” says Chamblin. Chamblin also mentioned despite being a young coach with a bright future who more than likely has the potential to lure NFL teams into requesting his services, his heart is
in Saskatchewan saying, “This is a place that has really grown on me and it feels like home, the fans love their team and my family loves the city of Regina and there is nothing more I want to do than bring Saskatchewan a Grey Cup.”
CRAIG CARR was one of the honored speakers of 2013 Football Night in Saskatchewan as Corey Chamblin took the floor as the keynote speaker of the event.
YMF creates “Getting in the game” program for special needs kids By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer As part of Football Night in Saskatchewan the Yorkton Minor Football program initiated a new program called “Getting in the Game” designed to allow special needs kids the opportunity to experience what it is like to be on a minor sports team, providing the necessary infrastructure and teacher aids, chaperones, or additional expense to make that a reality. The idea came from YRHS Sr. Raider wide receiver Ryan Krochak, who asked coaches why their longtime trainer Tyler Senchuk didn’t come on road trips. Senchuk is a staple of the Raider football program, a special needs student, Senchuk has for years been a huge fan of the team and their biggest cheerleader. Attending nearly every practice and home game, he is always there for constant support of the team and loves YRHS sports as a student of the school. Krochak explained Senchuk’s importance to the program as well as his love for the game and his teammates saying, “Although Tyler wishes he could play, he would do absolutely anything just to be a part of the team. He was just as passionate about the game as Coach Sharpe himself. You could always spot Tyler in the hallway wearing his jersey, handing out high fives, and making sure you were going to be at practice. When game day came he would be just as excited as the players, and when you made that spectacular play he was always the first one to

high five you and get you the water.” So Krochak and Sharpe devised a plan to allow Senchuk, and special needs students like him to have the equal ability to travel on the road with the team with this new program, but first funds would need to be raised. Chad Nehring, a YRHS alumni member who is currently playing semi professional hockey in Phoenix stepped up with a donation of one of his game worn jerseys with every cent being donated to the “Getting in the Game” program. Naturally, with such a good cause a bidding war ensued with people at the Football Night in Saskatchewan eager to support such a worthwhile cause of helping special needs students. At the end of the auction, Lee Rusnak donated $3,300 dollars that will go towards this new program, something that Roby Sharpe feels is one of the most important parts of what Football Night in Saskatchewan raised this year. “Obviously you want to get as many kids involved in the game as possible, but with busy coaches and a team full of students to already look after and the demands of a special
needs student, there needs to be certain infrastructure set in place and now thanks to generous donation from the community we can do that, which is great,” says Sharpe. Lee Rusnak, a former University of Regina hockey player and Yorkton Terrier was thanked immensely by Sharpe for his generous contribution to the new program, which got a huge $3,300 head start at the banquet. “Lee and the community really stepped up as the community always does for us and once again I am blown away” says Sharpe. “Lee told me almost every team he played on had a stick boy or a bat boy with special needs and that he thought it was such a great thing to support and it is great to see the kind of giving back that we get to see in the community,” closes Sharpe. The “Getting in the Game” program will now allow the equal opportunity for all Yorkton students to experience what it is like to be apart of a team and the childhood experiences of going on the road with the team and the excitement of a road game. Experiences that athletes and students remember for their entire lives will

Springers Gymnastics close out 2013 season in style By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer After a season of hard work, the Yorkton Springers Gymnastics Club wrapped up their 2013 Gymnastics season at Provincials. Ten girls competed in the final event, all competing in a new level for the first year this season, providing some new challenges that required hard work from the gymnasts and the coaching staff. “With all of our gymnasts advancing to different categories, it was a lot of work to learn the specific new skills that are added as the divisions change which required a lot of effort from our team as well as our coaches,” the Springers coaching staff explains. “We start out our year with cardio and individual skills and work our way up to the specific movements one by one, so having to learn the moves this year rather than in last season where most of our gymnasts were in their second or third years in their categories when it is just fine tuning was a different challenge for us, but we all worked hard as
coaches and the students matched that effort and really grew over the year” say the coaches. The Springers team went all over the province in 2013, competing in Yorkton, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw, Prince Albert and Lloydminster as well as their practices which are generally up to three hours long, requiring a tremendous amount of dedication from parents, coaches and the gymnasts in a sport which requires incredible attention to detail to master aerial maneuvers while landing gracefully. That hard work paid off as the Springers won five medals at 2013 Provincials, an impressive feat considering everyone of their athletes was competing with the disadvantage of being in their first year at a new level of competition. All of the Springers medal wins came in the All Around discipline showing the hard work of the Springers team to learn a new array of skills and continue to master them. Silver medals were won by Brittany Schofer
Yorkton Storm jump in pool in Saskatoon By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
The Yorkton Storm Swim Club (YSSC) sent a strong team to the Saskatoon Lazers Septathlon swim meet this past weekend. Top five performances were turned in by eight swimmers. Auston Roberts (12) finished first in the 50m Butterfly event for Yorkton’s lone gold medal performance. A second huge highlight from the meet was the second place finish by Cassidy Flasch (11) in the 50m Backstroke. Her time of 43.19 seconds is only 0.48 seconds away from an AA time which would get her to the Man-Sask meet this summer, she will have another month to train to reach that goal before their next meet, but is just a fraction of a second off. Two swimmers did manage to punch their tickets to the Man-Sask Meet however as the Haczkewicz sisters wasted no time in qualifying for the summer’s major meet. Jennifer Haczkewicz (13) swam three AA times in Saskatoon. Her AA times came in the 50m Freestyle (2nd place), 50m Backstroke (3rd place) and the 50m Butterfly (2nd place). She also finished 4th in the 100m Freestyle and 5th in the 100m Backstroke. Kelsey Haczkewicz (13) will join her sister at the Man-Sask Meet for the first time this summer after swimming an AA time in the 50m Freestyle where she placed 4th. She also had a 5th place finish in the 50m
Backstroke, nearly joining her sister on the podium twice in the 50m heats. Connor Watrych (11) finished 2nd in the 50m Butterfly and 3rd in the 400m Freestyle. Connor was becomes the first recipient of a new award from the YSSC, the “Storm Chaser Award.” This award is presented to the YSSC swimmer that shows the greatest on average time improvement in all of the races they swim at a meet. In Saskatoon, Watrych showed a 15 second average improvement in all of his races after some hard training. Jillian Just (14) had a great weekend in the pool and turned in four top five performances in Saskatoon; 3rd place in the 200m Breaststroke, 4th in the 400m Freestyle, and 50m Breaststroke, and a 5th place finish in the 100m Breaststroke. Just has been one of the YSSC’s top swimmers this season and with four top five finishes and a bronze in the 200m, Just had another excellent weekend in the Bridge City. Rounding out the Storm’s weekend performances were Bryant Jones (11) who finished 4th in the 50m Butterfly. Jayden Lang (13) rounded out the top five performances placing 4th in the 100m Butterfly, and 5th in the 50m Butterfly events. The next meet for the YSSC crew is in Regina, May 24-26th as the swimmers continue to attempt to qualify for this summer’s ManSask meet.
(Provincial 4), Cassidy Stachewich (Provincial 3), and Jayden Jarvis (Provincial 2). Rounding out the medal haul were Kiara Lutz and Sidney Shyiak with bronze medals. Shyiak joined Jarvis on the Provincial 2 all around podium with her bronze while Kiara Lutz was the best Springers performer at the Provincial 1 level, finishing third while Kaybrie Lutz came close to the podium as well with a fifth place performance in the All Around. Other Springs competitors were Brynn Jarvis, (8th All Around, Provincial 2) Sierra Cook (7th All Around Provincial 3) Bryn Nystrom, (6th All Around, Provincial 3) Shalysa Brown (6th All Around, Provincial 2) and Emily Zajac (10th All Around, Provincial 2). Springers coaches were extremely happy with the way their season went this year, not-
ing that they had a very dedicated group of gymnasts who embraced the challenge of learning new things with a positive attitude. “All of the girls didn’t have to learn the new moves and skills if they didn’t want to and we told them that from the start, but they all want-
ed to and worked hard and you could see improvement throughout the season from each one of the gymnasts by the time the end of the competition season came around” concludes the coaches. Springers will close out with open gym sessions for their students
before hosting camps in the Yorkton area over the summer as their season winds down and the club would like to thank the parents and volunteers who help run their Yorkton event for all their work on making another season possible for the club.
SPRINGERS GYMNASTICS wrapped up their 2013 season on the mat with five medals at 2013 Provincials in the All Around competition. The Springers will wind down their season with open gym time and summer camps.

THE NEWS REVIEW - Thursday, May 2, 2013 - Page 19A
Jason Collins and sports and society’s problem with homosexuality On Monday morning Jason Collins came out as the first active player in a North American major sport to announce that he is gay in a cover story for Sports Illustrated that as expected blew up the sports world this week. It was to be expected, homosexuality is still a divisive issue in North America. Gays are not allowed to get legally married in much of the cities North American pro sports teams reside in, and the schoolyard taunts of calling people “a homo” or other phrases that you can all guess, but are too vulgar to place in this newspaper column are littered throughout pro sports, and despite new rules and diligence against making insensitive comments on the field of play, still flare up often. So Collins moment of bravery was naturally going to get soiled by people bringing in their morality into what was supposed to be a crowning achievement of gay rights, turning it once again into a reminder that we as a society and as a sports culture are still years behind where we should be. The fact that it took so long for a player like Jason Collins to come out is damning evidence of this already. John Amaechi, a former NBA player decided that he needed to be retired before coming out a few years ago and many athletes stay closeted for their entire lives, in fear of being judged by the people who poorly displayed judgement in the aftermath of Collins announcement. ESPN’s Chris Broussard (who has never shown good taste anyways) went on Outside the Lines condemning Jason Collins as a sinner and in what could be likened to when whites used to use the
Bible to justify slavery and heinous acts on the black community. He slandered Jason Collins, using the same tactics of hiding behind a book written thousands of years ago before society even knew homosexuality even truly existed to shout down a man who exhibited much more bravery than Broussard did for his religion by displaying zero class and decorum in calling Collins a “sinner.” Ironic in itself, because Broussard has been sinning himself to make millions on ESPN for year’s now in his capacity as an NBA insider and former panelist on NBA Countdown. ESPN has a prominent journalist named LZ Granderson, who like Collins is also gay, making Broussard’s comments and his bringing up of his friend to justify his stance even more appalling. “An open defiance to God” said Broussard. Something that the journalist is to pious to ignore on top of Mt. Morals. But he did mention that religion teaches tolerance, but the Bible will not allow him to be fully tolerant. The irony. Yes, the Bible kind of sort of says homosexuality is a sin. But it also says a lot of really stupid things are sins. Because it was written thousands of years ago. Would you use Henry Ford’s T-Model manual from 1914 to teach you how to fix your 2013 Ford F-150? Discussion over. In 2013 we should be better than that. We should be able to be happy for someone who is living their lives the way they want to, and the most important part, not hurting anybody. Does Jason Collins being gay make you uncomfortable? Is Jason Collins imposing his gayness upon you? Is Jason Collins being
Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig gay meaning you can’t be married? Because that is what your heterosexuality imposes upon Jason Collins, your religion also is taking away his rights in the same way it took away the rights of his grandparents with the segregation era in the United States and his great-grandparents with slavery. This needs to end. Gay people exist, to the point where they are just people, and people like different things and should be free to enjoy those things, especially something as special and meaningful to the human condition as love. Jason Collins has probably loved another man before and had that relationship fall apart because you as a person could not accept his homosexuality, you have made Jason Collins hurt because of your intolerance. Because of your lack of understanding and empathy. How would you feel if everywhere you went
with your wife/girlfriend the world judged you? People whispered nasty things into the ear of the person they were with so that you couldn’t hear or anyone else because it is wrong to be so prejudiced but you are going to say it in private anyways? Racism has long been something we look down upon as a culture. If you call someone a racial slur 99.9% of people are likely going to rip you apart for doing so, especially if that racial slur is said in public. If Chris Broussard went on ESPN and told everyone that slavery was still okay because it says so in two lines of a 1000 plus page book, he wouldn’t have a job still. But because it was about gay people it is okay? That is what society is telling us. You couldn’t call someone the “n word” in a Grade 10 English class without being suspended or starting a fight, but if you called the gay kid in your school a “fag”
people would probably laugh along with you. We have a double standard when it comes to sexuality as people, it is human nature. The majority of society is openly heterosexual and Christian, so everyone expects the rest of society to conform and anyone who is askew from that line is deemed as abnormal. This is wrong, but it is how it generally works, but we can’t keep doing this. The world has billions of people. It has handfuls of religions, races, languages. It has non drinkers, and drinkers. That is why prohibition didn’t work. It has blacks and whites. That is why slavery was abolished. It has Christians and Atheists. That is why there is the separation of church and state. It has drug users and non drug users. That is why the war on drugs has been a failure. We have heterosexuals, transgenders, gays and lesbians. That is why the old rigid views on sexuality will never work. I have been in countless of different places all over the world. When I encounter someone with a language problem, I attempt to understand them, because when I can’t understand them they try to help me understand. When I encounter a Muslim I
try to understand their religion and customs. When I encounter a gay person it doesn’t matter, because they understand that I am straight. That is how our world should work, but it often doesn’t. We should be happy for Jason Collins. Anyone who reads his story that will be in SI this week should be after hearing the story of a man who finally gets to be free. We shouldn’t be sitting here bickering over our own personal morals, and we definitely shouldn’t be criticizing him. Jason Collins is a gay person. He is tough, he plays hard defense and he works hard for his team while being a great human being, wearing No. 98 for the Celtics in honor of Matthew Shepard a gay University of Wyoming student who was murdered in a hate crime in 1998. If a Christian didn’t know Jason Collins was gay, they would probably use him as a role model. Now Jason Collins is finally free, free to lives his life the way he wants to. You should be happy for him, not because he was brave enough to come out, but because he is strong enough to not allow people telling him that he is wrong deter him from knowing that he is right. God Bless Jason Collins.

A look at what is happening in the Yorkton Business Improvement District
Last week something very interesting took place in our city within the YBID District. I am sure it has happened before and maybe has gone unnoticed by many. That fact is the way our community comes together in support of so much. The Yorkton Terrier, our community hockey club of the SJHL headed west to Nanaimo BC to participate in the Western Canada Cup. From there, as one of the top two teams. they will win the right to go to the Canada Cup in Summerside PEI. Our community came together, a pep rally was held, hundreds attended and cheered.

The YBID partnered with the Yorkton Co-op and within a 5 hour period, almost 600 people signed a book presented to the Coach and General Manager of the Terriers wishing them luck. It's amazing! Comments ranged from "GO BOYS GO," to "Look Out Royal Bank Cup we're coming" One of our favourites was Donna Moore's comment (Terriers Greatest Fan) "Go Terriers, if you win I'll bake you cookies."
