Gala raises record funds – ultrasound campaign wraps up By SHANNON DEVEAU N-R Writer It was the most successful gala to date, with a sold out house and an evening packed with great entertainment, a tasty meal and plenty of excitement. The Health Foundation recently held it’s annual gala event and with a Vegas theme, transported those in attendance to an evening in the entertainment capital of the world – Las Vegas. “This was an extremely good Gala,” says Diane Rusnak, Chair of The Health Foundation. “We had a very strong attendance with 400 guests and we had our strongest financial results ever, raising $42,500. We are very pleased with the results because Gala raised enough money to get us to our goal for the new ultrasound machine. “Anytime you can raise money and all the people making donations are having fun and enjoying themselves, then you must be doing something right.” With a record number of guests in attendance some people still had to be turned away from this year’s event. “We increased attendance this year because there were so many people who wanted to attend,” adds Ross Fisher, Executive Director of the foundation. “But, we had to cut ticket sales off at 400; our guests like to dance and we have to leave room for a good sized dance floor.” Continued on Page 2.

Sask on path to growth: Brad Wall By SHANNON DEVEAU N-R Writer We’re living in unprecedented times in Saskatchewan and in spite of the challenges that lie ahead, things are only going to get better says the provinces premier. Brad Wall was the invited guest speaker at a special Yorkton Chamber of Commerce Luncheon held Tuesday in the city and his message was clear: Saskatchewan in on the path of continued growth and that’s a good thing for ALL residents. Outlining the province’s new growth plan called, “Saskatchewan Plan for Growth Vision 2020 and Beyond,” Wall says, it’s a vision for the entire province. “Without growth and the investment it brings in and the tax base that it expands, we can’t afford to make investments that fix schools. We can’t afford to put those new child care spaces in Yorkton. We can’t afford 20 plus million dol-
“‘The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are.’ In the last few years in our province we’ve begun to realize that ... the opportunity is here...” – Brad Wall lars worth of highways upgrades... “Growth is what pays for social programs, health care... it also helps keep our taxes low. If we have more taxpayers we can charge people a lower tax rate,” explains Wall. “So the message I bring is that growth is a good thing. There are no doubt challenges that come with it... around infrastructure, around housing, but if we’re meeting those challenges then we can keep moving forward, knowing that in
the long term and in the short term it’s better to grow than to say good bye to our young people who used to leave here to find their futures elsewhere.” Detailing a six step plan to achieve a vision of expanding the province’s population to 1.2 million people by the year 2020, Wall says the ultimate goal is not just to grow for the sake of growing but rather to secure a better quality of life for all residents. “There are challenges surrounding growth so I think it’s
reasonable to ask as we launch into this next phase if growth is a good thing in the first place... but the answer to that is an unequivocal yes. “As more people come to province of Saskatchewan and bring with them investment, bring with them their energy, they help broaden our tax base. They build this province’s capacity to invest in itself... because of growth in this province over the last four years we’ve been able to reduce the debt by 44 per cent... We’ve been able to reduce income taxes for all. In Yorkton it’s meant that revenue sharing is up by 125 per cent...” New housing, school renovations, child care spaces, a new heli-pad for the city are all made possible due to growth says Wall. “Thats’ what growth brings... We want growth for the dividends that it pays...” Continued on Page 2.

Vision 2020: Saskatchewan’s plan for growth Con’t from Page 1.
PREMIER BRAD WALL was in Yorkton Tuesday. He outlined the province’s plan to increase the population to 1.2 million by the year 2020.
Sustainable growth won’t happen without a plan though and Wall says the government has that plan. It contains six key components. • Investing in infrastructure. • Educating, training and developing a skilled workforce. • Ensuring the ongoing competitiveness of the economy. • Supporting increased trade, investment and exports through international engagement. • Advancing Saskatchewan’s natural resource strengths, particularly through innovation to build the next economy. • Ensuring fiscal responsibility through balanced budgets, lower debt and smaller, more efficient government. “There are interesting things happening in this province. We’re on track this year to beat British Columbia in international exports. That’s not too bad
for a place that doesn’t have a port... International exports are up 50 per cent since 2007... “There is huge potential in this area and it’s our job to tell the story. “It’s not the government that should be credited with the economic growth of this province. We’ve had a lot of good fortune. We have a lot of resources. We have great people but this is one of the areas where our government really has sought to make a difference... We have worked hard to tell our story, hopefully in ways that it’s never been told...” And it’s working. Saskatchewan is rapidly growing on the global scale says Wall. “We’re going to continue to engage in trade missions. We’re going to continue to focus on Asia and further develop our
strategy for that market. They want fuel and food and fertilizer and we need to not take the markets for granted. “There is great opportunity and we need to seize it.” With that said, important above all in achieving these goals, says Wall, is fiscal responsibility. “One of the great reasons for the Saskatchewan advantage today is that we can say today in this country with truth that we are the only province in the Dominion of Canada with a balanced budget and money in the bank. There’s an advantage in that obviously.” With a lower tax base and more funds available, the province is capable of achieving more for residents says the premier. It will also go a long way towards helping
the province overcome the challenges surrounding healthcare, education, surgical wait times and as well as addressing a shortage of quality doctors and nurses he assures. “The great opportunity is were you are and in the last few years we’ve begun to realize that I think. The great opportunity is not some difficult, distant place. The opportunity is here. It’s where we are today... We ought never to be complacent... We’re very, very lucky to live here and I think we all owe something back... that we will keep growth happening because it builds the kind of province that we want to have, not just for today, but for tomorrow.

Gala another success Con’t from Page 1.
The evening provides a once a year opportunity for an entertaining evening out while helping to better the community. “Gala is great evening,” says Rusnak. “There are not a lot of opportunities in Yorkton to dress up, go out for a wonderful meal and dance to a live band. More and more we see people are looking for an opportunity to go out and have fun in a good atmosphere. Part of the Gala experience is the ambience, with the beautiful decorations and the little extras that you don’t see at any other event. Gala is meant to be a special night out, and our committee works hard every year to create something special and memorable for our guests.” This year decorations were colourful, bright and reflected the Las Vegas theme. “We had Rory Allen make a special guest appearance and perform a short supper show; we auctioned off a trip to Las Vegas and the band had people dancing all night. People had fun and at the same time helped us raise money for our local healthcare.” In the 17 years A Gala Evening in Yorkton has raised just over $400,000, all of which has been used to purchase medical equipment for the Sunrise Health Region. “We are only able to have strong results like this because of our spon-
sors and the businesses that donate items to our silent auction; and, of course, all the individuals who buy tickets to attend and bid on items in the silent auction,” says Fisher. “The Silent Auction is limited to 40 items that have a minimum retail value of $300; all the items are donated by generous members of the business community. This year approximately $12,400 was raised by the silent auction portion of the Gala.” As well, there are numerous sponsors that help directly with Gala: • Gala guests each receive complimentary portraits. A temporary photography studio is set up in a room adjacent to the hall with photography being provided by Mitch. • Bryce and Lorna Sherring of Sherring Gold Jewellers donated a 14ct Italian gold bracelet with a value of $2,750 to be raffled off. The raffle for the bracelet raised an additional $2,340.
• Stephanie Buckle of All About Flowers created centerpieces for each table – all of which were donated for the occasion. • Kristen Weber-Karcha and her business Memories to Last a Lifetime donated much of the decorations including the chair covers that created a huge splash of colour and made wonderful first impression when guests walked into the hall. Gala also features a live band, and this year the Crawdaddy’s provided the music, keeping people on the dance floor all night. The Members of the Gala Evening in Las Vegas organizing committee are: Chair, Diane Rusnak, MaryAnn Trischuk, Carrie Powell, Sandra Ruff, Vange Vallaster, Maxine Woodward, Wendy Zaporosky, Bridgette Sekel, Bev Bielinski, Gail Krawetz, Ross Fisher and Debbie Blommaert. Planning for next year’s event will begin again in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for more...

Growth is the way to go: Ottenbreit By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The Government of Saskatchewan revealed its Saskatchewan Plan for Growth recently, and that plan is going to influence the government’s policy moving forward, both for today and as a vision for 2020. Yorkton MLA Greg Ottenbreit says that the plan for the province’s future is going to be a major part of setting policy going forward, and the throne speech is part of that plan. Ottenbreit says that the province will see a focus on continued growth, both for this year and into the next eight, as that is one of the things that has been put as a priority in the plan. He notes that the population has grown by 80,000 people since 2007, and it’s something that the government wants to see continue into the future, to a goal of 1.2 million residents by 2020. He notes that the growth isn’t for the sake of having more people, but instead part of a larger goal. “We can’t lose focus on what the purpose of the growth and stronger economy is, there has got to be an end purpose. That end purpose is to create a better quality of life for everybody in Saskatchewan.” He admits that growth comes with challenges of its own, but that the province is going to continue to work on those areas as they have for the past few years. He notes that people have been most concerned about improving infrastructure in the province, and that is one of the areas most pressured by having growth in the province. He says that the government is
“We can’t lose focus on what the purpose of the growth and stronger economy is, there has got to be an end purpose.” – Greg Ottenbreit going to continue down the path it has been on, with investments in health, education, housing and highways. As well as investing in highways, there will be an effort to make it safer for the people who actually do the work. Speeding fines in construction zones will be tripled, and photo radar will be used for enforcement. The move was inspired by the death of flag person Ashley Dawn Richards, which Ottenbreit says was a tragedy which revealed a serious problem. “When we started looking closer and talking to construction workers and law enforcement officers, there is a problem with people speeding through those construction zones.” With the stiffer fines and increased enforcement, the plan is to make construction zones safer for everyone involved. The province is also planning to unveil its new labor legislation, which Ottenbreit says was developed to be balanced and simplified so young workers can find the answers to questions easier. The Saskatchewan Federation of Labor has already come out against it, and Ottenbreit admits that it’s not possible to satisfy everyone, but they feel it’s necessary to do. “With this legislation, Saskatchewan will have the most modern, competitive, fair and balanced
labor and employment environment in Canada. Either side of the argument is going to want something different, we want to strike a balance to be competitive with other jurisdictions, be on the same wavelength as other jurisdictions, but still have protections in place for our workers in the province.” Of course, growth requires attracting people to the province, and Ottenbreit says that the government is working hard to bring more people over, as well as working with the government to increase the cap of immigrants from 4,000 people to 6,000. The goal of this is to fill jobs in the province, and that also ties into education initiatives, he adds. There will also be a lowering of the business tax rate from 12 to 10 per cent, which Ottenbreit says is about being competitive with our neighbors to the west. He says that Saskatchewan has attracted some new head offices, because they “want to be where the action is,” and the government wants to see that continue. Overall, with the plan for growth in place, Ottenbreit says that this administration – as well as any future government – has goals to work towards and a clear path which they want to take, and this fall session will keep them going in that direction.

Flu vaccines set to resume
Public influenza immunization clinics are resuming in Saskatchewan. Health Canada has confirmed that flu vaccine made by the pharmaceutical firm Novartis is safe for use. It lifted a precautionary hold on the vaccines Wednesday. Health Canada found no safety issues with the vaccines, based on its own testing, information provided by its European partners and data submitted by Novartis. Saskatchewan flu clinics were put on temporary hold October 26 following the discovery of clumping of particles within European Novartis vaccine. The European batch was different than that supplied to Canada. “We have full confidence in the safety and effectiveness of our immunization program, and we’re pleased to be
able to resume immunization clinics,” Saskatchewan’s Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Saqib Shahab says. “Influenza vaccine is an effective way for people to stay healthy during flu season, and we encourage people to be vaccinated.” Health regions will be rescheduling their influenza vaccination clinics immediately, and will be informing local residents about clinic dates, times and locations as soon as the information is available. People who have already received a Novartis influenza vaccine do not need to be revaccinated.

Taking the time to remember... Veteran’s Week is around the corner in Yorkton and across the nation – will YOU take the time to remember? Each year, from November 5 to 11, Canadians join together to celebrate Veterans’ Week – this year will be no different. During the week, hundreds of commemorative ceremonies and events will take place across the country to recognize the achievements of our Veterans and honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice. There are many ways to show that you remember and honour our Veterans: Pin a poppy above your heart. Attend the local Remembrance Day ceremony. Talk to a friend or relative who has just returned home from Afghanistan or who served in other areas of conflict. Listen to Veterans talk about their experiences. Change your Facebook profile picture to a poppy. Above all, vow never to forget. However you choose to remember, be sure to share with everyone you know. Together, it is our duty to pass on the legacy and keep the memories of our Canadian Veterans alive. A silent thank-you: By Dan Gray... “Have you ever wondered why, soldiers are overwhelmed with grief on this day, when they proudly, salute the maple leaf why it seems, they leave this place, to lands far away at the sound of the bugle, on Remembrance day. They’re remembering a time, when the world was a different place when wars were fought on a bigger scale, hand to hand, face to face where victories were defined, by the amount of feet you gained and body counts didn’t matter, nor did if your friend was slain. They’re remembering the battles, fought for their homeland and of comrades lost, on the beaches, and field of a foreign land and of the crosses that mark their place, row by costly row just so the world could be free, of a common foe. They don’t ask for a thank-you on this day to remember them nor do they ask you to go see, the place of their fallen friend They will not ask for anything, and they bought us our peace They put and end to war, so we could be free. So now you might understand, a little more about the soldiers tears when he stands and see’s the flag, while were gathered here, and although we may take forgranted, the peace bought with thier youth for a few moments that it might take, please pause to say “Thank-you”.”
Jail! Do not pass go, do not collect $200 I fully agree with accountability both on the job and in one’s personal life. I mean if you have done others wrong, then own up to it and take responsibility for your actions. It’s as simple as that, but wow, what’s happening to these men is a tad harsh if you ask me. In 2009 a severe earthquake rocked central Italy, killing more than 300 people and injuring countless others in its wake. It’s a devastating tragedy to say the least, but should six human individuals be held accountable for an act of mother nature and something that was virtually out of their hands? Apparently so, according to the Italian government. Six scientists, along with one government official have just been sentenced to prison for failing to accurately predict the severity of the earthquake. The men will now spend six years behind bars as a result of their actions or lack thereof. According to prosecutors, the scientists and official down played the risks of the quake in L’Aquila, Italy, after a series of tremors shook the city in early 2009. On April 6, 2009, a magnitude-6.3 quake hit, killing 309 people and destroying local architecture. At the trial, Italian authorities said the men were convicted of manslaughter not for failing to predict the earthquake, “but for inadequately interpreting the level
of risk facing the city.” Wow, these people should have a listen to some of our weather predictions. I’m thinking a pretty large number of our forecasts would be presented from behind bars. Seriously though, we’re dealing with weather. It’s in its entirety. Shannon Deveau unpredictable We have trained individuals who are doing their best to be accurate but I’m sure systems aren’t fail proof. How could they be? At the beginning of the trial – in September 2011 – apparently a number of U.S. earthquake scientists expressed dismay at the idea of subjecting earthquake risk assessment to the criminal justice system but to no avail. “Our ability to predict earthquake hazards is, frankly, lousy,” Seth Stein, a professor of Earth sciences at Northwestern University in Illinois, told LiveScience then. “Criminalizing something would only make sense if we really knew how to do this and someone did it wrong... To predict a large quake on the basis of a relatively commonplace sequence of small earthquakes and to advise the local population to flee” would constitute “both bad science and bad public policy...” In the aftermath, they may as well scratch this career choice off the list in Italy because who in their right mind would want to take the chance? Accountability is one thing but this downright ridiculous.
The way I see it... Column
The American elections are infected with anger As I type this, it is about one week away from the presidential election in the United States of America. This means the end of what seems like decades of campaigning, even if it’s only been a year. Hopefully, this also means a brief respite from what has been completely unavoidable and mostly infuriating, the constant coverage of that election. I am aware that the election of a president can have ramifications for Canada, so it’s important to be aware of who our neighbors to the south select. Simple awareness of a presidential campaign doesn’t bother me, it’s how this particular campaign has infected the way people talk to each other, whether about politics or things that are entirely separate and unrelated. The entire campaign has brought out the worst in Americans, and has turned the selection of a leader into something particularly ugly. It’s not really about policy, but instead the idea that the person you don’t like is an enemy to all that is good and righteous, and anyone who supports him is subhuman. It’s a view that’s fostered by the parties themselves, who have both done a good job of painting the opposing side as the enemy, the people who are going to destroy the country and make good honest Americans suffer for the next four years until someone else shows up.
Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger I might agree with one side over the other, but I’ve become quite sick of seeing the low level of discourse infect people outside of their borders. It’s difficult to go anywhere without seeing some ill thought out yet incredibly mean-spirited comments about one of the presidential candidates, and it’s difficult to get a grasp of what on earth the big battle is actually about. The us vs. them mentality has made it impossible to actually judge the candidates on their own terms. The tactic of painting one party or another as the enemy, something that must be destroyed, has made it impossible to actually tell what any issues actually are, it’s a battle of extreme viewpoints rather than a discus-
sion of what’s best for a nation. The worst part is, I fear that we could see this disease infect the politics of other nations, especially Canada. We have a front row seat to this pointless mud slinging, and any relative success could make it so campaign strategists in this country adopt similar tactics. After all, it works south of the border, why couldn’t we turn people against each other and destroy meaningful conversation here too? It clearly gets a loyal group of voters together and people caught up in fear are less likely to actually think about their choices. It’s a dangerous road to walk down, and I hope nobody tries to force us down it. For now, I’m grateful that the constant coverage will inevitably end, and any grumbles about the man who will serve as president over the next four years quiet down to a murmur – though given the emotions whipped up in the campaign I suspect we’re not going to see them disappear completely. I just want the campaign to end, so I don’t have to hear about it anymore, from people on both sides of the political divide. That said, I hope that when people of this country think on that election, we decide that we don’t want to be America, and take a relatively calm, rational approach to the way we vote for our leaders. It’s the only way that we can effectively avoid disaster.

Your letter of the Week
Canada/China, where’s the wisdom? Lest we forget
To the Editor:
We really have to question the wisdom of our current relations with China, especially the Canada-China Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement. Stephen Harper and the Chinese President signed off in Vladivostok Sept. 8, no press release, it has been tabled quietly in Parliament and 21 sitting days later, Oct.31, 2012 comes into force. No debate in public, Parliament or with other levels of government. Governments can sign treaties without Parliamentary approval, but it is unusual for something of this magnitude to not have debate. Remember the big NAFTA debates? The House has been debating the Canada- Panama trade deal -trade volume $213 millionsince last spring and the CanadaJordan trade deal-trade volume $90 million- for 6 days. The Canada- China deal- trade volume $64 Billion- no debate whatever. Why no debate? What is in this investment deal? It sets out a series of obligations for Canada, new rights for Chinese state owned enterprises and fails to deliver on reciprocity for Canadian companies operating in China. We are bound to the terms for the next 15 years minimum. A future government that wants out has to give 1 years notice- and even when cancelled, any existing Chinese operations in Canada are guaranteed another 15 years of benefits. Canada must promote and encourage Chinese investment in Canada. Chinese government controlled companies operating in Canada must be treated exactly the same as Canadian companies.
Now the really nasty parts. The deal allows Chinese companies to sue Canada over decisions that can reduce or diminish their expectations of profit. China can claim damages against Canada for decisions at the municipal, provincial or federal level- even decisions of our courts. Belgium is dealing with a $3 billion claim with China under a similar treaty regarding a failed bank. Chinese investors need only a minority position in a Canadian company to be covered. Claims go to arbitration behind closed doors and are secret. No other level of government is allowed to intervene or attend. We are essentially delegating a judicial component of Canadian sovereignty to international arbitrators. The arbitrators are not subject to review in any court. The arbitrators are not judges, often being corporate lawyers, moonlighting academics or members of corporate boards. They can awards billions of dollars of public funds to Chinese government corporations for our governments enacting legislation that protects our energy security, environment, jobs or public health. The mere threat of a lawsuit can be used in the early part of a dispute to get a government to change or deter certain decisions. This treaty requires that if, in the future, Canada wants to conserve its natural resources–all including water–we are only allowed to reduce Chinese access to the extent that we limit our own use. Australia, South Africa and India have wisely refused this type of investment treaty. The government claim is that Canadian companies doing business in China will be protected. However, Canadian companies
cannot demand Canadian jobs or materials be used in China. China can- and is- using Chinese labour and materials in Canada. China has the upper hand with its huge investments here. Canadian companies will not be buying Chinese state owned enterprises or investing in China to the same extent.. Is this deal just to push through the Northern Gateway pipeline? Chinese backers of this pipeline and tanker project would have the right to sue the British Columbia government if it tried to block the project. In turn, the Chinese national company could demand that only Chinese labour and materials be used, and that it be protected from public opposition. Note that up to 2,000 Chinese workers could soon be given temporary work permits to work in 4 largely Chinese owned coal mines in B.C. Temporary foreign workers in Canada have increased from 101,000 in 2002 to 300,000 in 2011. The $15 billion takeover of oil company Nexen by CNOOC,the corrupt organ of the Chinese Communist Party, is pending. This investment deal gives China‘s national oil companies more power to shape Canada‘s energy markets and challenge the politics of this country than Canadians themselves. We are reduced to hewers of bitumen and drawers of water by our Prime Minister. A request was made for an emergency debate in the House of Commons. Speaker Andrew Scheer decided that this deal did not warrant an emergency debate. What do you think? Mike Bray, Indian Head, SK.
It’s not only the procedure that’s wrong
To the Editor:
The Harper Conservatives are ramming another “omnibus” budget Bill (C-45) through Parliament. It’s massive, incoherent legislation, lumping together everything from navigable rivers to grain inspection, from disability savings plans to hazardous waste – over 500 sections, over 400 pages, covering more than 30 different topics and amending more than 60 different laws. Coupled with “closure” to kill debate, it’s all designed to be so humongous, convoluted and fast that no Parliament could possibly scrutinize the details and expose all the mistakes. (Sort of like the inspection system
the Conservatives are responsible for at XL Foods – a lot of contamination got through.) But as profoundly anti-democratic and obnoxious as Mr. Harper’s procedures are, the substance of his “omnibus” legislation is even worse. It’s vacuous! Economic growth all around the world is slowing to a crawl. Some countries are back in recession. The US continues to struggle. Asia is showing signs of weakness. The International Monetary Fund says global financial risks are “alarmingly high”. Recent figures show Canadian productivity is worse than previously reported. Our trade is faltering. Household debt is at dangerous levels – for every dollar
of disposable income, the average Canadian is carrying $1.63 in debt. And yet, Budget Bill C-45 contains nothing to promote growth, jobs, innovation or productivity; nothing to advance sustainable development in our resource-based economy; nothing to support middle-class families; nothing to combat growing inequality between different sectors, regions and population groups. To offer just one example – the Conservatives brag about the “hiring credit” for small businesses contained in C-45. But the only reason that credit is necessary is because this government is increasing Employment Insurance payroll taxes each and every year.
For the past two years and every year going forward, the Conservatives are hiking EI premiums by $600-million annually. This is a destructive, escalating Conservative tax-on-jobs! They make a big show of giving back $200-million through a temporary “hiring credit”, but businesses are still $400-million worse-off – every year! This is just one example of how complacent and misguided Conservative economic policy is, in the face of rising global risks. On both procedure and substance – for what it does and what it fails to do – omnibus Bill C-45 cannot be supported. Ralph Goodale, MP, Wascana, SK.
Resource formula a win-win for the province To the Editor: The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) likes the Wall Government’s decision to propose a Heritage Fund for the province. This is long overdue for Saskatchewan. It is wasteful to take the revenue of non-renewable resources and use it for dayto-day government operations. Windfalls from Potash and Oil should be put in the Heritage Fund after our accumulated debt is eliminated. But there also needs to be a formula created for determining
the royalty rates of natural resources in Saskatchewan. This formula needs to take interest rates and the inflation rate into consideration. It is irresponsible to say that Saskatchewan will never change its current royalty rate structure, but it is equally irresponsible to suggest that royalty rates need to change without explaining how the structure should be changed. Any change to natural resource royalty rates needs to strike a balance between creating an environment for entrepreneurship and having enough resources
to meet the social needs of Saskatchewan people. As the inflation rate rises in Saskatchewan, natural resource royalty rates should increase by a certain amount, and then remain locked in. And as interest rates in Canada fall, our province’s royalty rates should also be set to increase. This will allow the province to gain more revenue from our natural resources, regardless of the state of our economy. Victor Lau, Leader, Green Party of SK.
To the Editor: Once again Remembrance Day will soon be upon us. A time for Canadians of all ages to remember the more than one hundred thousand fellow citizens who fought, bled and died protecting our freedoms along with the countless others who have served our country. But Remembrance Day should not only be reserved to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. It should also be a practical remembrance of the living – the disabled Veterans, RCMP members, widows, widowers, orphans and family members of those who served who are in need of a helping hand. Members of the Royal Canadian Legion are, as one of their core responsibilities, the Guardians of Remembrance. The Poppy Campaign organized by the Legion, in conjunction with Remembrance Day, helps alleviate suffering and addresses the needs of Veterans and their families who may not have the financial wherewithal for basic necessities. The Legion assists with purchasing medical equipment, awarding bursaries for needy students, providing support services such as mealson-wheels and drop-in centres and helping with some basic residential repairs to name but a few. So much of the Legion’s work in our communities goes unnoticed. Every day this organization of more than 330,000 people makes significant contributions, not only to enhance the lives of Veterans, but also for seniors, Cadets, Scouts, Guides, as well as serving members of the Canadian Forces and RCMP and their families. The Legion remains fiercely proud to be Canada’s largest Veterans services organization. Our advocacy work on behalf of all who have served in the Canadian Forces and RCMP ensures that they receive lifelong support and recognition for their service to this country. Thanks to their desire to give back, the Legion was created and continues to this day to support our communities in countless ways. The Royal Canadian Legion’s Poppy Campaign provides everyone with the opportunity for practical remembrance and it is hoped that this year, with the recent conflicts in Afghanistan and Libya as with our aging Second World War and Korean Veterans, more Canadians will wear the Poppy than ever before. There’s more to the Legion than you might think. We Care! Find out today how you can get involved by visiting your local Legion branch… because you care; because you can. Lest We Forget, Gordon Moore, Dominion President The Royal Canadian Legion.

All Saints Sunday - a day to remember those we love All Saints Day is celebrated the first Sunday in November and it is a day for remembering and giving thanks to God for both saints and sinners. It is special day set aside to give thanks to God for giving us people who have touched our family, community and world. It is believed that the custom of commemorating all the departed souls goes back at least to the third century. All Saints’ Day is closely tied with ‘All Souls’ Day.’ This celebration quickly spread within the Christian church. All Saints’ Day cele-
brates not only the martyrs and saints, but we give thanks for all the people of God. All Saints Day is celebrated by many faith groups: Roman Catholics, Orthodox, Anglicans, and Lutherans to mention a few. However, because of our different understandings of the day, the way our churches celebrate the ‘Feast of All Saints’ may differ greatly. I encourage you continue the ritual which your church celebrates on this day. On All Saints Day, my Church gathers to celebrate the lives of all

individuals. Within my faith community, we recall names and faces of those we loved and now are asleep in the Lord. We remember the saints and give the glory to God. We spend the day in quiet reflection, remembering both the dead and living, and thanking God for them. On the first Sunday in November, the songs, lessons and readings reflect around the term “saints and sinners”, the bottom line being that we are all both a saints and a sinners at
the same time. We are all called saints within God’s realm, but we fully know we are also sinners. In my faith ritual, the day is observed by inviting families who have experienced a death of a loved one to take part in the worship service. We read the names of those who have died from our church family. Families have the opportunity to come forward and light a candle/place a flower on the altar in memory of their loved ones. We give God the glory for all the saints. Rituals have a way of helping us to remember our loved ones. When words fail us, we often have turned to rituals as a way to express our compassion. It is indeed blessed to recall on this day those people that were a blessing in our lives. Whatever your rituals may be, honour
them and celebrate them. “The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.........” – Unknown source Margaret Anne Yost nursed for 35 years.

SUDOKU RULES The objective is to fill a 9×9 grid with digits so that each column, each row, and each of the nine 3×3 sub-grids that compose the grid (also called “boxes,” “blocks,” “regions,” or “sub-squares”) contains all of the digits from 1 to 9. The puzzle setter provides a partially completed grid, which typically has a unique solution. Completed puzzles are always a type of Latin square with an additional constraint on the contents of individual regions. For example, the same single digit may not appear twice in the same 9x9 playing board row or column or in any of the nine 3x3 subregions of the 9x9 playing board. This week’s puzzle is very hard.

The facts of business By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer
RAISING AUTISM AWARENESS is one of the goals of the Sunrise Health Region, and professionals who work with people with ASD recently held an awareness event at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre. Pictured above (l-r) are Leahette Zerff, ASD Support Worker, Eileen Deswiage, ASD Consultant, Jeri Koch, ASD Support Worker and Kendra Gibb, social worker.
Sunrise raises autism awareness By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer While Autism Spectrum Disorder, or ASD, is something which affects many different people, it’s also something which can be confusing or difficult to understand for family and friends. The Sunrise Health Region held an ASD awareness event to help teach people about the condition. Eileen Deswiage, ASD Consultant for the Sunrise Health Region, says the goal was to raise awareness of autism in the community, as well as inform people about the services available and the strategies they can use to care for children with ASD. She says for many families, it can be scary, since there are many different things which could happen with autism, since it is a spectrum. She says kids on the spectrum can have just social issues, or have more severe problems which they need help with. “One of the great sayings about it is that if you know one child with autism, you know just one child with autism, because it’s a spectrum,” Deswiage says. The event took place so people know how to get the help and support, Deswiage says. She notes that there are different supports within the community, in home and in school, and it’s important for families to know they exists. “There are many tools and many strategies that can help with all sorts of behaviors, with communication, and just to build awareness,” Deswiage says. She also emphasizes that there are many different supports offered within the community, and it’s best to talk to an expert within the community in order to ask the questions that might come up. “There’s a lot of info out there, some good, some not so good, so it’s good to ask the experts and we’re here to support the families,” Deswiage says. She encourages people who would like to know more to visit the Children’s Therapies website at http://www.sunrisehealthregion.sk.ca or call Children’s Therapies at 786-0179. She says that they are there to help whichever way they can, and will direct families to the different services on offer.
SUNDAY BREAKFAST SPECIAL
Starting a new business can be a frightening prospect, something Bill McBean, former owner of a local GM dealership and former Yorkton resident knows well. That’s why he has written the book The Facts of Business Life: What Every Successful Business Owner Knows that You Don’t, in an effort to help business owners in every stage of their career understand patterns and what they have to know to be successful. The book covers two concepts, the first being seven facts of business life which have been consistent among successful businesses that McBean has been a part of or observed, and the second concept being the life cycle of a business. He says that he’s the first one to identify how an owner operates a business from the initial concept stage to when they would be looking to finish. The cycle has five steps, he says, two in preparation, finding opportunities, how to build the company. The third is survival to success, the fourth being remaining successful and the fifth being when it’s time to exit. “The levels take you from the first time you’re thinking about opening a business and taking hold of an opportunity and working through until it’s time to exit,” McBean says. The early stages of the cycle are the most important, since businesses tend to fail in their early years. McBean says that it’s because one of those initial steps wasn’t handled correctly. “Seventy per cent of businesses fail, and they’re going to fail in the early years. It’s a combination of a couple things. One, the person didn’t find the opportunity correctly. Two, if they did, they didn’t know how to operate and set up the DNA of the company... It doesn’t matter how good of a business owner you are, if you don’t get that opportunity right, you’re never going to get it right, if
it’s wrong, it’s wrong.” Given that the book covers the entire life cycle, it also covers moving on, something McBean admits can be difficult because of the emotions involved. He says the best plan is to set up a succession strategy before you have to, and control the process. “Very few business owners talk about exiting. It’s an emotional decision above anything else, and the point of the book is that emotion shouldn’t be a part of it. The business has been successful because the owner has been able to make decisions based on facts, and the exit should be based on fact and have a process. I truly didn’t want to leave Yorkton, but the only way to get to Texas was to sell the Yorkton dealership, and I thought it was black and white until I had to start to actually do that.” Continued on Page 8.

Cut red tape: Canada’s Navigation Protection Act
A frustrating bureaucracy, known to many rural municipalities across Yorkton-Melville that have tried to replace a washed out bridge or culvert, is being eliminated! The Navigational Waters Protection Act is one of Canada’s oldest pieces of legislation and was originally designed to protect navigation and commercial shipping on Canada’s waterways. Over time, the application of the Act changed to include all bodies of water capable of being navigated by any type of floating vessel for recreation or commercial transportation. That meant even little creeks that fill only in the spring fell under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Transport and under the Act. The issue has been a source of annoyance for many years, and has really come to force with recent flooding throughout our area. Repairs to washed-out roads and bridges have been delayed
Parliamentary Report Op-Ed Column by Garry Breitkreuz because of this bureaucratic black hole, resulting in needless lost time and money, and a waste of tax dollars. Even cottage owners wanting to build a dock on many of our lakes were required to seek federal approval. The proposed changes to the Act include a name
change from Navigational Waters Protection Act to Navigation Protection Act and will re-focus resources on Canada’s most used waterways to ensure infrastructure does not affect navigation. The changes build on amendments to the Act made in 2009 allowing for pre-approval on minor work. The Navigation Protection Act is legislation related to navigation. From an environmental perspective, our waters will continue to be protected through the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act 2012, the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, the Species at Risk Act, and the Fisheries Act. The proposed changes fall in line with our government’s commitment to returning to balanced budgets, streamlining the regulatory process, eliminating red tape and encouraging long-term economic growth and job creation.
A rainbow of cattle at pARTners By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer They are farm animals like you’ve never seen them before. Local artist Stephanie Newsham has a show at the community pARTners gallery at the Yorkton Public Library called How Now Purple Cow? The show is a tribute to farm life through psychadelic-coloured animals. The show represents work from over a decade, including Newsham’s first cow. She says that the inspiration was almost by accident, as she started painting in the style at an art retreat. She had been looking through a box of black and white photos from her grandmother, and found an image of a cow which she decided would be something interesting to work with. Still, she says she didn’t get completely inspired until she saw the bright colours the woman beside her was using. “I asked if she wouldn’t mind
sharing some with me. I took a couple squeezes of her reds and yellows and that’s how it happened. I experimented and started layering colors on this cow and really liked how it turned out. I did another one at that same retreat and my friend Judy Niebergall suggested I might be on to something,” Newsham says. While the animals are not the only thing she paints, Newsham says that they are something which she continues to come back to over the years. She believes it’s the experimental nature of the work that continues to make the brightly coloured animals something she is compelled to do. “I find it fun, I never know what it’s going to turn out like. I don’t have a vision of what it’s going to be like when it’s done, it just morphs, and that’s fun, because you can end up with a purple cow or a green sheep,” Newsham says. While this has been only a focus
for the past ten years, Newsham admits that she has had a certain fascination with farm animals in unconventional colours since she was a little girl, and that this might also be part of the reason why she keeps returning to the subject. She says that one of the biggest influences in her art has been Judy Niebergall, who had the previous show at community pARTners. She says they met during a watercolour class, and since they have been painting together. “She really believes there is a lot of talent here and she does whatever she can to showcase it. If she sees someone interested she does whatever she can to make sure they have all options available to them so they can proceed... She made me want to be part of this art community,” Newsham says. How Now Purple Cow? will be on display at the community pARTner gallery in the Yorkton Public Library into December.
Former resident talks business, releases book Con’t from Page 7.
He says that part of the reason for writing the book is that he remembers what it was like when he was young and had to learn everything on the fly, and how frightening it was to be in charge but inexperienced. “Just being uncertain of the future and scared was probably the biggest thing. The second thing was my learning
curve in Yorkton was really strong. Because I had never owned a business before, I was never sure of how the decisions I made in one thing would affect other things I didn’t realize. I was a rookie and I made rookie mistakes... I really learned business when I was in Yorkton,” McBean says. He admits that he still remembers the first day as a business owner in the city, and
the feeling of panic he had before the dealership opened for the first time. “A couple hours before we opened, I can vividly remember sitting behind my desk and going ‘what have we done?’” He says that’s a feeling which keeps happening, as you have to try new things to grow the business and the path is not always clear, but making those deci-
sions is how one gains experience and knows how to adapt. McBean says that the people of Yorkton have been a vital part of his life, and he thanks all of his friends, employees and customers from
the area for all of the support and friendship over the years. He notes that the acknowledgements section of the book is filled with local names who have been very dear to him from his time in the city.

Money talk: how young is too young? There are many things expectant parents plan for, such as buying necessities for the newborn, baby-proofing the home, and preparing for the big day. They may wish to delay planning for the distant cost of the child’s post-graduate education, but it requires early attention. TD Economics estimates the total average cost of a four-year Canadian undergraduate degree today at $55,000 for students remaining at home and $84,000 for those living away. And the cost is growing. Parents having a baby now can expect that when the child goes to university in 18 years those figures will have increased to $102,286 and $139,380. It is already unreasonable to think that young people can fully pay their way through university with part-time jobs, and that is unlikely to change. Parents of a baby born today should expect that their child will finish post-graduate studies owing money, although they can reduce the debt with early planning. A Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP), which allows tax-free earnings, is one way to lessen the impact of future education costs but selection of the plan provider requires thinking. RESP providers offer variations in services, investment options, and fees. Careful parents will choose an RESP provider who best suits their goals for family education and finances. Under the Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG) program, the RESP receives a federal gov-
Financial freedom by Kim Inglis
www.reynoldsinglis.ca ernment grant of 20 per cent on every dollar of the first $2,500 saved in the RESP each year. Depending on net family income, an additional CESG grant of 10% or 20% can apply to the first $500 saved in the RESP each year. The maximum lifetime grant through the CESG is $7,200 per child. The 2012 BMO Student Survey found that paying for school is the primary cause of student stress. Reducing that stress begins by equipping the child with the skills needed to understand and address financial challenges. The teaching begins with allowances where the basics of managing money can be taught and other important lessons can happen naturally. If part of the allowance is earned by doing chores, the child learns about reward for effort. When the allowance is reduced for chores not
done, the child understands the importance of meeting obligations. Some of the allowance can go to a savings program to teach the fundamentals of compounding, while the act of saving teaches that getting a large sum begins with consistently setting aside a smaller amount. And, of course, parents should instruct their children in developing a budget and sticking to it. Children should be taught to take advantage of financial opportunities. For example, when they are old enough to earn a few hundred dollars from baby-sitting or a paper route, they should file tax returns. The earnings are not enough to be taxable but the child will start to accumulate RRSP contribution room and, having filed returns, they will be eligible to apply for the GST/HST Credit and receive quarterly payments from the government when they turn nineteen. According to Investors Group research, 72 per cent of parents think it’s best to start talking about good money habits with their children between the ages of four and nine. That's an excellent start but action should accompany the chats.

– no cost learning series slated providing programs and support to those affected by dementia across Saskatchewan,” says Taisha Elliott, Program Assistant with the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan. “Currently in Saskatchewan, over 18,000 people have dementia and each of those people has a net-
work of family and friends affected by their disease. We want to ensure these people have easy access to information. Sometimes this is a tough feat, as Saskatchewan has a large rural population and many people with dementia live outside the urban centers of Regina and Saskatoon.
“Our main way to reach a large part of Saskatchewan is through our reoccurring Learning Series delivered via Telehealth. This program provides learning opportunities at no cost for people with dementia and their family and friends, throughout all stages of the disease.”

The YORKTON TERRIERS said goodbye to Yorkton with two home games at the FAA this week before heading on a three week road trip in lieu of the Harvest Showdown. Next home action will be November 18 against Flin Flon.
Terriers split games before long road trip By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
Going into the weekend the Yorkton Terriers knew that their two home games were going to be the last time they stepped onto the FAA ice for a long time as they are about to embark on their three week road trip to the North Division schedule. With the Harvest Showdown coming into town the Terriers are once again kicked out of the building and going into winnable games against the Nipawin Hawks and Estevan Bruins were hoping to secure maximum points before their road trip began. Saturday the Terriers got the job done earning a 4-3 shootout victory over the Hawks. Jeremy Johnson scored a timely goal with under six minutes remaining in the third period to tie the game at three and send the
game into overtime where the Terriers held on to secure full points in the shootout. Johnson also scored in the first period and notched the shootout winner while Kalium Gervais scored the Terriers second goal of the game early in the third period to spark the Terriers comeback. Kale Thomson made 20 stops in the win while earning his second shootout win of the season. Tuesday saw the cellar dwelling Bruins visit the FAA with only two wins coming into the game it was expected that the Terriers would be able to come out and make quick work of the fifth place Bruins. However a rough night in goal for Kale Thomson created a 5-1 lead for the Bruins that even with a spirited attempt at a third period comeback was too much for the Terriers to overcome as they suffered their first home loss of
the season. The Terriers will now head out on a three week, seven game road trip to start the month of November. Stops include Kindersley, (twice) Battlefords, Humboldt, Flin Flon, and La Ronge. A 5-2 record on this road trip last year gives the Terriers hopes that they will be able to keep pace with Melville in the battle for top spot in the Sherwood Conference standings, but the Terriers already have road losses in Kindersely and Battlefords this season making this road trip no easy task. This weekend will likely be the determining factor on if this road trip will be a success or a bump in the road for the Terriers as the play Kindersely Friday/Saturday before playing Battlefords Sunday at 2:00 p.m. in what is a grueling weekend slate for the Terriers. Former Terrier goalie Warren Shymko
will be looking to reprise his fifty save performance in the Klippers win over the Terriers earlier this month and Battlefords earned a 4-3 win over the Terriers last week. If Yorkton can get three-five points out of this weekend, they should be okay for the rest of the much more spread out road schedule they will be facing in November. Expect Dawson MacAuley to see more time in goal for the Terriers on the road trip as the compressed schedule this weekend combined with Thomson’s performance on Tuesday night will have the Terriers testing out their goal keeping tandem and looking for the right route to take going forward. A long November is in store for the Terriers and if they are going to continue to cement their post at the top of the SJHL they will need to do it on the road.
Jr. Raiders lose in final to undefeated Regina Raiders By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer After a second half turnaround that saw the Jr. Raiders go from 0-4 to 6-4 and a spot in the Regina Minor Football Championship game the Raiders just couldn’t jump that final hurdle in their way of a championship season falling to the undefeated Regina Raiders. On the coldest day of the season the Regional defense came to play in what looked like a game the Yorkton Raiders could steal, making key stop after key stop, many of them deep in their own territory to give them a chance to take the lead. However Regina’s defense was simply too strong for the Raiders as the Regional offense struggled to amount to anything more than two plays and a punt in their first half drives. Caleb Bymak came up big for the YRHS defense making many big plays behind the line of scrimmage earning multiple tackles for a loss and helping keep Regina off of the scoreboard. Yorkton’s chances in the game took another crushing blow after quarterback Brett Harysmuk suffered a concussion after being sacked by the Regina defense in a blindside hit. While the hit was clean it was one of several tackles that banged up Yorkton’s players and drew the ire
of the YRHS coaching staff. Nick Payne once again after the game saying, “We filled in for Harysmuk’s usual second and knew the Regina Raiders were going to third quarter duties, but the Regina line be a very good football team heading into stifled any hope of positive offense for the the final and our defense stepped up for us Regional. A interception returned for a and we didn’t quit so I am proud of all of touchdown by Regina put the Regional in our guys for a successful season and thank an even deeper hole going into halftime our fans and the parents for supporting us down three scores to the league’s best de- all year.” fense. Nick Payne made up for his interception with a big completion that led to a Brenden Weber seventy yard touchdown catch and run that gave the Regional life to start the second half. Regina ended up closing the door on the comeback attempt after a questionable blow to the head tackle led to a fumble and took the sails out of the YRHS players. Regina added a few more touchdowns in the fourth quarter to score 40 points in each game of the season, but the YRHS fought hard and were a deserving second place finisher playing impressively in a game they weren’t even supposed to be JR RAIDER FOOTBALL saw its season end in dein after an 0-4 start. Head coach Mike Jarvis was proud feat in a crushing loss to the Regina Raiders Sunday.

Harvest show promise on road By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
The Yorkton Harvest Midget AAA hockey team’s trying season marched on over the weekend as they had mixed results in what was a weekend that showed promise to wrap up what has been a dismal 2-7-1 start to the season. Saturday the Harvest travelled to play the Beardy’s Blackhawks in the first of two road games over the weekend. Offence was abundant as the Harvest scored five goals off of 60 shots but still lost 6-5 to the Blackhawks despite outshooting them 60-33. Dakota Odgers led the Harvest with a two goal, one assist performance while Lynndon Pastachak had a three point night with one goal and two helpers in what
was a strong night for the Harvest forwards. Beardy’s Taryn Phaneuf was undoubtedly the player of the game with a 55 save performance that stole the Blackhawks a win in a game the Harvest should have won. Sunday the Harvest had more offensive success as the return of Dakota Odgers from the Swift Current Broncos has proved to be a difference maker as a four point night from Odgers and a four goal third period lifted the Harvest to a 4-2 victory over the Prince Albert Mintos on Sunday afternoon. Chase McKersie opened the scoring for the Harvest in the first period in a one goal, two assist game before the Mintos answered back with two goals in the second period to head into the final twenty minutes with a 2-1 lead. However Eric Meyer and Odgers goals in the opening half of the third period gave the Harvest the lead and they never looked back adding a powerplay goal from Ethan Bear and Odgers second with four minutes left to head back to Yorkton with a win. The weekend showed a glimpse of hope for the Harvest as they finally look like they might be able to turn the corner after a forgettable October. Still the Harvest are only three points out of eighth place and if they can win a few more games on this road trip will be right back in the hunt. With two weeks left until a return home, it will be crucial.

SHHS girls capture silver at provincials
By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
After a successful season the Sacred Heart Saints girls soccer team came up one goal short of winning a provincial championship Saturday in Saskatoon, losing 3-2 in the finals to Saskatoon’s Bishop J Mahoney. The Saints had a terrific weekend, easily walking into the finals where they came across the two time defending provincial champions, who proved too much to handle. Sacred easily vanquished Regina high schools Sheldon Williams and Miller in the quarterfinals and semifinals on their path to the final. In the quarterfinals Rita Fetsch scored four goals in addition to a Morgan Shymanski goal in a 5-nil rout before a hat trick by Bryce Sherring and two more goals from Morgan Shymanski proved to be the difference in a 6-nil win over Miller in the semifinal. Bishop J Mahoney found themselves in the final after a 5-nil win over Humboldt and a 5-2 win over Notre Dame, the team they beat in the finals in their two previous championship runs. The finals matchup was then set for a true David and Goliath battle between Mahoney and the Saints. Sasktoon’s Bishop J Mahoney featured nine club players in Sasktoon’s premier division, making Sacred’s rookie laden team massive underdogs despite their own impressive record heading into the final. Mahoney showed why they were the two time defending champions, opening the game with two goals to give them a commanding first half lead. Rita Fetsch came up big as usual for Sacred, whittling the lead to one with a brilliant goal after beating two defenders to put
the score to 2-1. However Mahoney’s Steph O’Donnell’s second goal of the game put Mahoney back up 3-1 and proved too big of a gap for the Saints to overcome. Fetsch was taken down in the penalty box and converted in the 80th minute to return the score to 3-2 and made things interesting in the end, but ultimately Mahoney was too much to handle in earning their third consecutive provincial crown. Coach Jeanne Fetsch was proud of her team’s effort all season in finishing with a 13-5 record saying, “On paper we shouldn’t have even been in this game, but we were and our girls exhibited the true meaning of playing with heart.” Sacred Heart defenders Katie Inglis, Connor Rosluk, and forward turned defender for this game, Kaylee Ford all played great, covering nicely for each other according to Fetsch. Two of the three Mahoney goals were off of set pieces, which proved to be the difference in the final. Absent from the line up for the final was key player Kristen Jonassen whose dominating midfield presence was missed by the Saints. Fetsch mentioned that many of her girls have never played soccer before having a total of nine rookies on the team and would also like to thank graduating players Shayla Merriam, Kaitlin Inglis, and Connor Rosluk for their leadership, their dedication and their commitment to Saints soccer. After a successful school soccer season some of the Saints players will join the defending club provincial champion Yorkton United FC squad and look to return to success next season as a group that will only see three players graduate will look to compete in the quest to end Bishop Mahoney’s reign at the top of 2A girls soccer.

Low expectations for Riders heading into homestretch
On Saturday afternoon the Saskatchewan Roughriders dropped yet another late season game, this time losing 3126 at Mosaic Stadium to the Toronto Argonauts. This years’ Riders are a vast improvement over last season’s incarnation, but this three game losing streak has shown that the magic of the late 00’s is gone in Riderville as Taylor Field hasn’t been the site of a late season surge heading into the playoffs since I was in high school. Part of this is to be expected, Darian Durant, who I was not high on heading into the season and fairly can be placed into the overrated category, ranks sixth in the CFL in QB rating this season and his endearing quality of pulling out clutch drives has seemed to pass him by. In fact, the Riders signature come from behind win of the season came from the arm of backup quarterback Drew Willy and the Riders have won most of their games by holding onto leads with their defense this season. In fact the Riders are 0-7 when trailing after the fourth quarter this season, an appalling statistic given the fact that Durant’s fourth quarter play was once legendary. Kory Sheets has been a revelation for the Riders this season and Weston Dressler has been the Riders MVP all year long, but when it comes down to that late game swagger that so often swung late season games for the Riders, it has remained to be seen. The offense
just simply can’t come up with the big plays that a contending team needs to make. Three straight losses to Edmonton, Montreal, and Toronto respectively has erased the good vibes of their strong September and their win over the BC Lions at home. Playoffs are a guarantee heading into the final week of the regular season, but the hope of building momentum on the road will be a hard ask as a Saturday night clash with the BC Lions looms on the horizon. In fact, momentum building might not even be a possibility with the potential of the Lions sitting their star players as Travis Lulay injury concerns and a home berth in the Western Division final have been locked up for the Lions heading into this weekend. I haven’t said much about the Riders this

season, I expected them to make the playoffs and after the start of the season and Calgary losing starting quarterback Drew Tate to injury I expected them to have a home playoff date in the Western Division semifinal as the West’s second place finisher. But, inconsistent play and the aforementioned 0-7 record after trailing in the fourth quarter has the Riders hopes at a low point heading into
the playoffs. Can the Riders get a lead on any of the potential playoff matchups they will see ? The Stampeders will be a tough matchup if the Riders stay in the West when the Eastern Division playoff picture is sorted out, the Riders are 0-3 against the Stampeders this season and even though a quarterback controversy between Drew Tate and Kevin Glenn is providing as a distraction, the Stamps
Prairie Wildfire Taekwondo By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer Kee’s Taekwondo hosted their annual tournament at the Gallagher Centre Flexihall on Saturday as over 190 competitors from as far away as Thunder Bay and Edmonton travelled to Yorkton to compete in the one day tournament which was scored under the Daedo Olympic scoring system. Yorkton martial artists had a impressive showing at the annual event, including having the best competitor at the tournament. Kee’s Francis Bazin took home the Best Male Adult Award at the tournament, winning the male black belt heavyweight gold as well, other Kee’s black belt sparring winners included
Shane Varjassy, (Jr. heavy), and Autumn Ashcroft (Women’s Jr. A middle) The special distinction awards were rounded out by; K.H. Min – Edmonton, (Best school) Warren Miller – Moose Jaw (Best referee) Tristian Phair – Iron Fist Winnipeg, (Best male junior) Sarah Prokopiw – KH Min Edmonton, (Best female adult) and Alyssa Elyk-Gibson – Iron Fist Winnipeg. (Best female junior) Several junior Kee’s students medalled in the non black belt competition for sparring as well as success in the forms portion of the days competition. All in all the weekend was a success as Kee’s students put on an impressive showing while hosting some of the best martial arts talent in Western Canada.

would be the favorites at have been the more clutch team this season. The East crossover provides a much better scenario for the Riders opening round chances. Should Edmonton win and the Riders lose, Saskatchewan would travel to Toronto to open the playoffs. Despite the home loss Saturday, the Riders did dominate the Argos 36-10 on their trip to the Rogers Centre this season and would have much better odds of making the Grey Cup through Toronto then Montreal then through Calgary and a harrowing trip to the fortress that
has become BC Place in the playoffs. Regardless of how Week 19 plays out, the Riders have lacked the signs of a team that has a chance to make a surprising run to the Grey Cup. However it needs to be said that even though the teams of the 00’s that had that November magic often weren’t supposed to win either. A win on Saturday night in BC would put some to ease in Riderville, but the fact is we really shouldn’t get our hopes up until we see some magic out of Durant and co. when it matters the most, which is in the fourth quarter.
SHHS place sixth By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer The Saints Boys Soccer team’s championship reign ended this past weekend at Warman at the SHSAA 2A provincial tournament. The boys played a hard fought game against Regina Miller losing 1-nil, ending the possibility of defending their 2A provincial title for the third straight year. The Saints had several chances including a shot off the cross bar but just could not solve the Miller keeper who proved to be the difference in keeping a clean sheet for Miller in the quarterfinal. The consolation semifinal saw more offense with the Saints winning 3-2 against Humboldt. Saints goals came from Elias Giannoulis, Ja-
cob Okeny and Petro Vivchar, who scored the winner for the Saints. The final game to decide fifth place was played against Moose Jaw Central in a rematch of the regional final. The Saints once again just did not have it in them to beat Central, who won 4-nil and took home fifth place in the tournament and the B side consolation. The Saints performed admirably this season after losing many of the core players of their two time provincial championship winning team and came very close to reaching the semifinal in their opening round loss to Miller. Many of the remaining players from the championship teams will also be graduating this year ending an era of SHHS soccer.

YRHS lose in MJHSFL championship game By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
The clock struck midnight in what was a storybook season for the YRHS Raider Gridders in their first year of Moose Jaw High School Football League action as a banged up and undermanned Raiders team was upset 49-29 by the Moose Jaw Peacock Tornadoes in the MJHSFL final. After a win over Peacock in the regular season and possessing the league’s best offense and defense in nearly every statistical category, the Raiders looked good on paper to continue their dominance in the final. However injuries to a small, but extremely talented roster proved to be the difference as an injured Raiders squad was shellshocked in the first half by a Peacock team that had nearly double the personnel of the Raiders. The game started out well for the Raiders as their opening drive ended with a touchdown pass from league MVP Dalton Fichtner to Michael Balysky to make the score 7-0 Raiders in what appeared to be business as usual as the Raiders rode quick starts to their two previous playoff wins. A fumbled kickoff by Peacock had the looks of the potential for the Raiders to pin the Tornadoes deep in their own territory, but a missed tackle and key blocking led to a Lane Bossence 109 touch-
down return tying the score. From that point out nothing seemed to go the Raiders way, Tyson Haas’ shoulder injury he picked up in the semifinal prevented him from being a factor in the running game and Zack Kais own injury problems kept the Raiders typically solid ground attack quiet while Peacock’s Nathan Fall’s return from injury was crucial as the Tornadoes piled on the touchdowns in the first half. A game that likely would have been much closer had the Raiders had better luck with injuries was 41-7 at halftime and was quite the shame given the hard work and determination the Raiders exhibited getting to the championship game with a 7-1 record. An onside kick attempt to start the second half for the Raiders didn’t pan out and despite Dalton Fichtner showing why he was the league MVP with a much better second half performance, a comeback just was not in the cards for the Raiders as the final whistle blew on what was a entertaining year of Raider football. Peacock head coach Black Buettner was ecstatic in victory and also gave credit to a YRHS program that he says, “Was a tough team to come up against, and we executed the gameplan and credit to our players.” Buettner mentioned that the kick return in the first quarter was a key to changing
the momentum and that his young team really improved after their loss to the Raiders early in the regular season, beating third place Central 28-14 on the final day of the regular season to lock up first place in the league. Peacock now will face the North division champion in the 3A provincial semifinal. Raider head coach Roby Sharpe was deflated after the game as the loss marked the end of successful careers of many key players of the Raiders. Fichtner the aforementioned league MVP and key receiver and linebacker Layne Hull will be graduating this year and will be key losses for the program. However, despite the sting of defeat Sharpe was proud of how his team played all season. “We knew we had injuries coming in, we just didn’t know how bad they were and it just didn’t happen for us today, but I have to give the boys credit as they played hard and they didn’t quit and that is what football is all
about.” Sharpe mentioned the end of the game was emotional not because of the loss, but because of the loss of six players explaining, “We spend 300 hours a fall with these guys and even more time in the winter lifting weights and we see these young guys come in as little kids and leave as men and it is sad to see those guys leave the program.” The Raiders will only graduate six players from an extremely talented 24 man roster, keeping core grade ten players Zack Kais, Darius Haberstock and Ryan Krochak who will be back next year and the year after in addition to David Balysky and potentially Haas next season. A talented crop of Jr. Raiders will also be making the move up as key Jr. Raiders Alex Popoff and Caleb Bymak have potential to fill holes that will be left by the graduating Raiders. With a Jr. team that made the Regina Minor Football championship
and eighteen returning players from a team that only suffered one loss on its way to the championship game, coach Sharpe and the Raiders will be gearing up for a return to success next season. “Only one team in 3A football finishes their season off with a win every year, and one year I hope to be that team,” closed out Sharpe. Big
shoes will need to be filled at quarterback with the loss of Fichtner, but it seems like winning YRHS football is a trend that is here to stay with a solid group of returning and incoming players giving the Raider nation a lot to be excited about heading into winter workouts and spring camp in preperation for the 2013 season.
LEAGUE MVP DALTON FICHTNER threw for two touchdowns and ran for another in the Regional’s 49-29 loss to Peacock in the MJHSFL final.
