Local water options expand – bulk station opens By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The City of Yorkton has a new Bulk Water Station. The location, off of Highway 10 near Deneschuk Homes, offers several advantages over the former water station on York Road, which is now closed. Waterworks Manager Glenda Homes says that the new location is better in every way from the former location. Most important is accessibility, as the station is operational for 24 hours a day, while the former location was only open during regular business hours. As well, customers can set up an account for their water needs or prepay with the city, two alternatives to the coinoperated setup that was in existence before.
GREASE is the word, and the musical being put on by Sacred Heart High School. The production will happen at the end of November, opening on the 28th.
Grease slated for annual Sacred Heart production By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer This year, Grease is the word again, with the perpetual favorite coming to the stage at Sacred Heart High School. The production of the play will happen from November 28 to December 1. Teacher Greg Digout says it’s the twentieth musical he has been involved in, and one he has been wanting to do for a long time. While the content of the original did cause some concern, the school is using a school version, which makes for a family show. “It’s a tamer version of Grease, but it’s still the same fun songs,” Digout says.
While Grease has been around for longer than any of the performers in the production, Digout says that it’s a perennial favorite, and the cast knew the songs when they walked in the door. He says that auditions were well attended, and approximately 26 kids are in the cast. While he admits that it’s always a challenge to get boys involved in musicals, they were still able to cast all of the main roles, and the cast and crew are excited about the production. “Any of the kids that are interested in musicals or dancing at all, they know Grease,” Digout says. At the moment, the play is in the crucial last weeks of performance, and Digout says that they
are making the mistakes now so the performance itself runs without a hitch. “I’ve been doing this for 20 years. Two weeks before, it always looks like a disaster. A week before, it looks really good, and at show time the kids just knock your socks off.” Digout says that he hopes to see people come out and embrace the theme of the night, including their best ‘50s outfits. Shows will happen on November 28, 29, and 30 at 7 p.m., and on December 1 at 1 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors and available at Loucks’ Pharmacy, M&M Meat Shops and Sacred Heart High School.
The cost of the water from the bulk fill station is $14.25 for 1,000 gallons, and the cost to residents for the same amount of water was $11.54. The new station cost $60,000, which was spent retrofitting a former water treatment plant with the new equipment. Homes says that it was worth the expense. “It wasn’t a large cost to the public, and we think it will pay for itself in the long run.” Homes says that the majority of the water pumped by the fill station is commercial, though many farmers will also use it for their water needs. It’s a necessary service because fill stations are relatively rare, and this station offers good water to people who need it.

Festival of Cultures brings out Yorkton’s heritage By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer
The Festival of Cultures has entered its third year, and this year’s event brought together over 12 different booths for cultures represented in the region, as well as food, music, dance and cultural objects. Ricardo Adane, Secretary of the Parkland Filipino Association says that the association has been a part of the festival ever since he has been in Yorkton, and he says they are proud to be one of the cultures from around the world represented. Their booth featured food, clothing, money and other items representing the Philippines. As well, the association was a big
part of the dance and music portion of the day, with a youth band playing songs as well as dances. He says that the booth showcases everything about the islands. “It is like a grain of rice in the Pacific. We have over 700 islands and we are separated by bodies of water. Each island has different dialects of their own, but our national language is called Tagalong,” Adane says. The Filipino community is growing in Yorkton, and Adane says that it shows when the group holds events and celebrations. He notes that the Pinoy Fiesta recently attracted at least 800 people, and he estimates that there are currently 500 Filipino people in the area.
“Filipinos are growing in number, and we would like to say we are hard working people. We don’t want trouble, we want work and to provide for our families. We love what we are doing and where we are right now, in spite of the very cold weather. We adapt to wherever we are in the world. We also find the Canadian community here in Yorkton a very good one.” This is currently a difficult time in the Philippines itself, Adane says, after a 7.0 magnitude earthquake and a super typhoon have struck the islands. While the destruction and loss of life is something that the country cannot handle on its own, Adane says that the support in Canada THE FESTIVAL OF CULTURES showcased the different food, traditions, music and dance of different cultures from the Yorkton area. These included dances from Thailand and the Philippines (pictured). has been overwhelming. “The Filipino community here in Yorkton is very thankful for the Canadian support...

To date, Saskatchewan has benefitted from close to $371.9 million from the federal Gas Tax Fund for community projects. Funding can currently be spent in the following areas: • Drinking water • Wastewater infrastructure • Public transit • Community energy systems • Solid waste management • Local roads “Our government is proud to invest in important infrastructure projects as we focus on creating jobs, promoting growth, and building strong, prosperous communities across Canada,” adds Breitkreuz. “We are proud to support economic growth across Yorkton-Melville by supporting local infrastructure priorities through the federal Gas Tax Fund.” More information on Canada’s Gas Tax Fund can be found at http://www.infrastructure.gc.ca/.

Gas tax funds allocated
Yorkton/Melville MP Garry Breitkreuz recently announced that the second installment of Canada’s Gas Tax Fund (GTF) for 2013 is being made available. The money, he says, means millions of dollars this year to support local infrastructure priorities. “The federal GTF provides predictable, long-term funding to municipalities to help them build and rehabilitate their infrastructure,” explains Breitkreuz. “These projects not only improve the local communities, but the resulting jobs also contribute to the local economy.” In 2009, the Government of Canada doubled the amount of the federal GTF to $2 billion annually, and in 2011, passed legislation to make the funding permanent. In fact, the Government of Canada has invested over $13 billion to date in municipal infrastructure through this fund alone. Each year, municipalities across the country can pool, bank and borrow against this funding, providing significant additional financial flexibility. Through the GTF, the federal govern-

Insured annuities in a low rate environment Increased life expectancy has investors worrying that they will outlive their retirement assets, and their anxiety is magnified by concerns about preserving the assets through future market gyrations. This nervousness is reasonable and understandable but there are ways to address it. One is the insured annuity, an attractive and complementary portfolio option for those over age 60 and in good health. An insured annuity is comprised of a life annuity contract and a life insurance policy, purchased simultaneously with the annuitant as the life insured. The annuity generates the cash flow to pay both the life insurance premium and taxes. When retirement funds are used to purchase an insured annuity, the conservative side of a portfolio gains a stable income stream with tax advantages. Only part of the income received is taxable and, generally, the older the annuitant the larger the payment. When nonregistered funds are used,
preferential tax treatment can be significant. Because a smaller portion of the income is deemed to be taxable, Old Age Security clawbacks also may be lowered or eliminated. As well as maximizing after-tax income, insured annuities preserve capital and provide tax-free transfers to beneficiaries. The insurance payment at end of life is not considered part of the estate and therefore is paid directly to a beneficiary, bypassing probate and avoiding costs associated with estate administration. It is also protected from creditors. And, of course, lifetime payments address the issue of outliving retirement funds. Essentially, this creates a personal pension and therefore presents a range of components to be weighed in the decision. Among them are such things as interest rates, fees, the quality of the insurer, the amount of the portfolio to be kept liquid, and the investor’s particular desires. Age is another important factor.
Financial freedom by Kim Inglis
www.reynoldsinglis.ca Consider a 70 year-old female with a marginal tax rate of 43.70 per cent who purchases a $500,000 insured annuity at current rates. Her insured annuity pays out $39,222 per year at prescribed terms. She pays insurance premiums but, because her annuity payment includes return of capital, only part of it is taxable. With these deductions the annual net cash flow would be $17,985 per year or 3.60 per cent aftertax and expense yield. If our subject purchased a $500,000 GIC with a 3.00 per cent rate of return, the results would be much less generous. Although she would only pay taxes, they are much higher. The annual net cash flow from the GIC
Youth conference planned The Yorkton Tribal Council, DREAMbuilders Learning Centre and Yorkton Chamber of Commerce have announced they have formed an Organizing Committee to plan and deliver a TransACTIONS conference for youth, this Friday, November 22 at the Gallagher Centre, Yorkton. Targeting high school students who are interested in learning about owning a business and being entrepreneurs, the theme of the conference is “It’s About Mo’ Money!” Dale Domres, Yorkton Tribal Council Director of Economic Development, is says he is pleased that young entrepreneurs have been engaged to speak to the students. “These young entrepreneurs will share with the students their experiences as entrepreneurs and owning businesses,” he details. “The students will learn about their successes and stresses as business owners.” Students will also learn about using social media effectively and how social media can be used to market their busi-
ness. As well, the students will have some fun as they observe a theatre piece that illustrates common perceptions about teenagers at job interviews and a hip hop artist will perform at noon. Invitations to the conference have been sent to all the First Nations, Catholic and Public High Schools within a 100 km radius. “We will have a Grand Entry, complete with a drum group to open the conference and we have invited an Elder to say a prayer,” adds Juanita Polegi, Executive Director of the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce. “The committee believes it is important for all students to understand how the First Nations community begins its conferences and business meetings.” At the conclusion of the program, the students will be invited to participate in a project that will encourage them to develop a business idea. The winning entries will be introduced at the Chamber Business Dinner in April.
would be $8,445 a year or 1.69 per cent after-tax and expense yield. For this senior, the insured annuity has an annual net cash flow
112.97 per cent higher than the GIC. To achieve the same income with a GIC, she would require a pre-tax equivalent yield of 6.39 per cent. The insured annuity is a unique product that can provide lifetime income and, at the end of life, return the capital to one’s heirs. It is a wise strategy. Although the concept seems straightforward there will be variables in the rules and annuity rates. Investors should seek qualified advice to
ensure they fully understand it and get a product that best meets their needs.

No place for bullies in Sask. It’s a shame – in this day and age – that there is a need for such a week of awareness but the need IS real. This week has been set aside to heighten awareness surrounding bullying – both in Yorkton and across the country. With teens committing suicide and children coming home in tears daily we need to take action to curb the bullying trend and ensure all children feel safe in their environments. This week, along with local concerned groups, the government announced it will be doing it’s part to step up to the plate and help out. “No child should ever have to experience bullying,” Education Minister Don Morgan comments. “Unfortunately, that is the reality for a number of students across the country and right here in our own province.” A number of recommendations have been put forth to put a stop to what’s happening. They include: developing an anonymous online reporting tool for the reporting of bullying incidents; assessing the implications for Saskatchewan of upcoming federal cyberbullying legislation; supporting students to develop appropriate and responsible online behaviour; providing a stand-alone website for anti-bullying tools and resources for students, families and educators; and, engaging youth in building solutions to address bullying. These initiatives are all a step in the right direction and it’s up to you and I to get on board to ensure change comes about. Bullying, in any shape or form is wrong. If we educate, observe and take action, if we refuse to tolerate it, it can’t exist. Not just this week, but every week and every day, let’s vow to do our part to keep our children safe. Let’s say “NO” to bullies.
Why help? Because it’s the right thing to do In times of economic uncertainty like the world is experiencing, it’s not a surprise people are worried about giving TOO freely – we have homeless people as well after all. We have hungry, we have those who are waiting for surgeries, we have working poor who struggle daily to make ends meet but with that said, what kind of a society would we be if we didn’t reach out to lend a helping hand to our fellow human beings in need? The Philippines has been dealt a devastating blow, thousands are displaced from their homes, countless are dead and it will take years to get back to any semblance of normality. Do we help them out or do we turn a blind eye? There are many who say “it’s not our problem, we have our own troubles to look after.” I disagree. We do have problems, but truthfully, things overall are pretty good here in Canada if you think about it. Can you imagine though, if disaster struck (and it could)? Wouldn’t you like to think the world would step up for our aid in the same way it is doing for these people? We aren’t talking about a country that was asking for a hand out. These people are facing a human catastrophe and it’s not because of their choosing. Isn’t it our moral responsibility to do our part to
change the situation around? It reminds me of the many people out there who seemingly have nothing, yet often, they’re the ones who give the most. There are wealthy who sit on their high horses hoarding their while a hungry man Shannon Deveau money down the street shares his last loaf of bread to see his neighbor eat. I’m not sure about you, but I would far prefer to sit down in the shack with the person in the second scenario than with guy in the mansion in the first. What goes around comes around they say and a person never knows when the shoe might be on the other foot, I would like to think if it was, there would be hand there to help me out. NOT that this is the sole reason to be a good person. There will always be hungry, there will always be homeless. There will always be challenges and we may always struggle to keep up. It’s a sad fact but it’s true. If we start looking the other way though, when a tragedy like this happens, we’re on a slippery slope to a cold and lonely place. “It seems to me that any full grown, mature adult would have a desire to be responsible, to help where he can in a world that needs so very much, that threatens us so very much.” ~Norman Lear
The way I see it... Column
Fashion victims are in danger during our winter Somewhere in this city, the driver of a black sedan is attempting to drive down a street. He might be going to work, he might be going to visit friends, he might be going shopping. He is, however, going sideways, as the black sedan in question is equipped with giant wheels and extremely low profile tires. This wheel and tire combination is not appropriate for a Canadian winter, as it is not actually possible to control a car equipped with those tires on a snowy street. The man in his black sedan has proved this quite comprehensively. So why does he have these tires on these wheels? Short reason, he believes they look good. It’s a trend, especially in other parts of the world where snow is less prevalent. The wheel and tire combination is expensive, and to a certain market it is the epitome of cool. That’s fine in the summer, when such a combination isn’t suddenly outright dangerous, but at the first snowfall he’s more likely to discover that driving into a tree causes unfashionable dents which clash with his expensive rims. Fashion, in his case, is going to wreck his car, it’s inevitable. He needs to get to a business that sells tires, but that’s somewhat difficult for him. There are many fine tire retailers in this city, but all of them were over a block away from where I spotted this ill-
Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger fated driver, and thus it will be very difficult for him to actually reach their business. I was kind of amazed he had made it as far down the road as he did, but I wasn’t optimistic about his chances overall. He was completely unable to drive in a straight line. That’s the problem with fashion, what looks good might not be a wise proposition for a situation. Just as his tires rendered his car dangerous, fashionable shoes could have the same effect on pedestrians. After all, grip on ice isn’t going to be a primary consideration when one is trying to make a fashionable pair of footwear. The best shoes in the winter, at least in my experience, tend to have thick, chunky soles that are
the opposite of the rather delicate look that is most commonly associated with fashionable footwear. As a result, there will be just as many fashionable people falling down, possibly on their way to driving their car that can’t make it down the street, a cavalcade of poor decisions leading to a great deal of unsafe practices. So clearly we have to ignore fashion in this country, because it’ll just result in our collective demise. Or, we should try to change the fashions, vote with our wallets to make a winter decisions all cool and hip. In some ways, we’ve managed it. SUVs are popular vehicles because they’re big, but they also make a degree of sense because they’re mostly four wheel drive. Fuzzy jackets tend to have their moment in the cold winter sun, and they’re generally warm and sensible. So now, somehow, we need to make thick boots and thick tires the cool and hip new thing. As someone who is not cool or hip, I’m not sure how we can manage this feat, though I’ve been purchasing sensible things for years it has had no measurable effect. It’s still something that needs to be done, for the sake of the people who are becoming literal fashion victims, those who are driving into trees and falling on their behinds because of the things they believe look cool. Fashions should change for these unfortunate souls.

Your letter of the Week Unlocking our trade potential Vote wisely
To the Editor:
Some say the Canada-EU trade agreement is Stephen Harper’s cure for all his recent troubles as Prime Minister even if many details have yet to be made public. Parliament has had a brief overview of the trade agreement but still has yet to see anything in ink. When considering how complicated multilateral trade negotiations can be, we need to give credit where credit is due, however: a pact-in-principle with the EU is quite the accomplishment. Nonetheless, those who elevate the agreement to the status of historical treaties are only reminiscing about the 90s and the forging of the North American Free Trade Agreement. The world is a much different place now. This agreement, if ratified, will only allow Canada to join the ranks of countries which are unconditionally committed to free trade – nothing more. In other words, with this agreement, Canada has shown for the very first time that it is willing to make some significant compromises on trade restrictions involving agricultural trades, a highly contentious issue in global commerce. It’s a statement that has not gone unnoticed, and the agreement with the EU couldn’t have come at a better time. As the American government has become increasingly dysfunctional over the last few years, the world is considering options for reliable economic leadership. Canada and the EU, amongst other players, are questioning the current global monetary regime led by the Americans. As a result, the fact that Canada crafted and signed an agreement with the EU before the Americans is not trivial. For one, the Canada-EU deal will likely be
used as a benchmark instead of just an afterthought. To be realistic though, since it may take up to two years for the agreement to be officially ratified, negotiations with the Americans may influence or even alter the content of the Canada-EU agreement. Yet even this attests to the significance of our path-breaking work. Secondly, both the Americans and the EU have shown an interest in each other but have a toxic history of political rela-
agricultural sectors like cattle and pork. Particularly in light of the Country of Origin Labelling rules in the U.S., which are becoming increasingly unbending, our livestock industry needs better access to global markets. Even though it may take a while before the deal is enacted, it provides some of our lagging sectors with a renewed sense of hope. Our supply management system, which is precious to our dairy, poultry, and egg sectors, will survive unscathed. This is welcome news for these sectors. However, artisan cheese makers will see an influx of more European cheese coming into our domestic market. Should the agreement be ratified, quotas for fine cheese imports will double. In addition, geographic appellation for European cheeses will be protected. Consistent with European-based rules, Feta cheese, for example, can only be labelled as such if produced using strict traditional methods. Many industry leaders have already registered their concerns, and they will need to be properly supported moving forward. Because of the St-Lawrence seaway, which provides a very economical way to move products eastwards to Europe, Ontario and Quebec are likely to gain from this new partnership. The food processing sector in Eastern Canada, which has been facing major macroeconomic headwinds of late, will likely embrace this opportunity in the future. For that reason this agreement, once ratified, is a step in the right direction for our agricultural economy. But this should only be considered as the beginning of a renewed commitment to free trade.
“As the American government has become increasingly dysfunctional over the last few years, the world is considering options for reliable economic leadership.” tions, mainly stemming from disagreements regarding the proper response to international conflicts. It is highly unlikely that a deal can be signed between the two parties by the end of U.S. President Barack Obama’s second term. So for Canada to have secured an agreement with the EU brings a better sense of certainty. For Canadian agriculture, this agreement is seminal, full stop. Over the last few years, Canada has signed trade agreements lacking in scope. Free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama, or Peru aren’t necessarily earth-shattering when the world is more concerned about what goes on in India or China. This newest potential trade arrangement, however, can significantly support some of our major

Approach is immoral, change needed To the Editor: It is certainly true that “the link between manmade warming and hurricane activity is unclear.” The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said in 2012 that a relationship between global warming and hurricanes has not been demonstrated. In their September 2013 assessment report, they had only “low confidence” that damaging increases will occur in tropical cyclones (typhoons and hurricanes) due to global warming. The Nongovernmen-
tal International Panel on Climate Change** report, also released in September, asserted “in no case has a convincing relationship been established between warming over the past 100 years and increases in any of these extreme events.” While Typhoon Haiyan was certainly tragic, the number of tropical cyclones making landfall in the Philippines has not changed in over a century. Globally, we are near a 30 year low in worldwide Accumulated Cyclone Energy, a measure of total cyclone activity.
Tropical cyclones will happen occasionally no matter what we do. So, instead of wasting money trying to stop them, we must adapt to them by burying electrical cables underground and reinforcing buildings and other infrastructure. Thousands of people died in the Philippines because their storm shelters collapsed. A similar typhoon hit Queensland, Australia in 2011 and not a single person died because their shelters were much stronger. At the UN climate conference now underway,
adaptation takes a distant second place to trying to stop what might happen decades from now. Of the $1 billion/day spent on climate finance across the world, only six per cent of it goes to adaptation, effectively assigning more value to the lives of people yet to be born than those suffering today. Our representatives should tell conference delegates that this approach is immoral and must be changed. Tom Harris, Ottawa, ON.
Out of touch with Canada’s middle class?
To the Editor:
The federal government’s recent Economic Update proves once again that MP Garry Breitkreuz and the Conservatives are out-of-touch with the challenges facing middle class Canadians. It didn’t include anything for middle class families who are struggling under record levels of household debt. The average Canadian household now owes $1.66 for every dollar of disposable income. It didn’t include anything to help young Canadians, or the parents who are financially supporting them. Today there are still 225,400 fewer jobs for young Canadians
than before the downturn. And it didn’t include anything to help kick-start the economy. The Conservatives are sitting back and defending the status quo, despite the fact that Stephen Harper’s growth record is the worst of any Prime Minister since R.B. Bennett in the 1930s. Instead, the Tories chose to concoct a budgetary surplus on the eve of the next election. But almost half of that surplus comes from asset sales that have not taken place. It’s a little bit like selling the furniture to pay for the groceries. They also imposed countless tax hikes on the middle class over the past three years, raising taxes on
everything from credit unions to employment insurance (EI). In fact, the Economic Update inadvertently revealed that the Tories are keeping EI premiums artificially high in order to further pad their numbers – the same EI taxes that are, in the words of the Finance Minister, “direct job killers.” Canada can do better. The recession ended more than four years ago, but Mr. Breitkreuz’s economic message has been that Canadians should be happy that we’re not Spain. That’s just not good enough. Scott Brison, MP, Liberal Party of Canada Finance Critic.
To the Editor: With the elections for the new wheat and barley commissions looming, I decided to give all of the candidate biographies a read. I noticed an interesting contrast. There are many candidates for both commissions that are very clear about where they stand on the important issues of maintaining public plant breeding and ensuring farmers maintain the right to save their seed. Others fail to mention these crucial points and cloud their positions with ambiguous language and talking points.
“...ensure that your votes go to candidates who will work to put farmers before industry.” These are farmer organizations and those elected to serve should be putting farmers first. Some candidates seem very comfortable about cozying up further to the agri-business giants that make their billions off of farmers. Others are clear in saying that farmers must come ahead of industry. The privatization of Canadian agriculture is almost complete. We have no orderly marketing, no publicly owned facilities and the federal government has gutted the public plant breeding system. These elections are a chance for those farmers who recognize the value of publicly funded research to make their voices heard and work to stop the destruction of a hundred year legacy of public plant breeding. Do not let wheat and barley seed go the route of canola. Do not elect candidates that would like to see us paying exorbitant prices for seed that we cannot save to plant again the year after. Read the candidate biographies closely and ensure that your votes go to candidates who will work to put farmers before industry. Leo Howse, Porcupine Plain, SK.

Yorkton recycling now and into the future By SHANNON DEVEAU N-R Writer The topic of recycling was on the agenda at Yorkton’s regular meeting of city council Monday evening following the delivery of a report by Stephen Rosowsky, environmental committee member. The report indicates where the city is now and where it needs to go in the future.
As recycling reduces the impact on costly landfills, the topic is an important one said Rosowsky to council. “Recycling as represented a great challenge in the province... the City of Yorkton is not an exception facing these challenges... According to a survey undertaken by Saskatchewan Environment in 2008, in 2007 in Yorkton, three was a total of 13,612.93
tonnes of solid waste generated... for the recycling sector, there was a total of 1,320.88 tonnes,” outlines the report. But the city is working towards improvement. Yorkton has implemented a residential curb side recycling program that accepts paper, cartons, cardboard, plastic, bottles and cans. We also have recycling drop-off centres for both residences and business-
es. “Currently, there are several challenges to deal with recyclable material in Saskatchewan, including costs related to transportation and operation. The government has taken initiatives to make recycling more economically viable as well as has developed programs to improve and to successfully address existing solid waste
management practices. However, there are still issues... “Of great concern is the amount generated of carbon emission through the recycling processes.” According to the report, the city is studying all of the impacts in every area and is continually striving towards improvements for the benefit of the community as a whole.

Representatives from Shelwin House were also on hand Monday to seek council’s support for putting a stop to violence – an initiative that goes hand-in-hand with bullying.

Celtic surprise slated for Yorkton: Thistleband
By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer
Thistle wants to entertain, and that’s what they’re going to do at the Painted Hand Casino on November 25. The Winnipeg-based band is coming to play their Celtic folk music. John Cartwright says that the band is made up of veteran musicians
with decades of experience in the industry. He was on a bill with the Beatles in 1962, Jerry Tretiak played with Bobby Curtola and Dennis Drabyk was a big band leader for over 20 years. With that level of experience on stage, an audience is in good hands, and Cartwright says that the band uses their decades of experi-
ence to give the audience the best time they can. He says at this point in their career, their goal is to have a good time with an audience, as personal accolades aren’t what matter. As a result, they have made a show that is not only entertaining on its own, but encourages people to hit the dance floor and entertain
themselves by dancing and having a good time. “We’re entertaining you and encouraging you to participate in what we’re doing, so everyone has a good time.” Cartwright says that the trio had known each other for a few years, and decided that there was a gap in the market, as everywhere

Yorkton Chamber announces new board
The Yorkton Chamber of Commerce has announced the results of the recent election for eight positions on the Chamber’s Board of Directors. Returning to the Board are Carol Yaholnitsky, Domenic Rampone and Rob Bear. New to the Board are Melissa Honour, Krissy Morrison, Brady Harland, Gord Pritchard and Stephanie Buckle. Each Director will serve a two year term. Ten people filed their nomination papers
says Juanita Polegi, Executive Director of the Chamber. She says she was pleased with the quality of all the candidates. “Every person who let their name stand would have brought new ideas and enthusiasm for the Chamber to the Table. We encourage the remaining candidates to consider running in future Chamber elections or to sit on one of the Board’s committees as the Chamber could benefit greatly from their experience and skills.”
An election is held every November to fill half the Board positions. In order to run for a position on the Board, candidates must be members of the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce or represent businesses which hold membership in the Chamber. The new members of the Board will take
their seat at the Chamber Board table in January at which time the Executive is then elected by the Directors. Directors serving the second year of their term include Amie Zamonsky, Don Rae, Corey Werner, Cheryl Kustra, Greg Donnelly, Joel Martinuk and Laurie Fedorowich.

“We’re entertaining you and encouraging you to participate in what we’re doing, so everyone has a good time.” – John Cartwright
they went they saw bands playing the same music, and they thought they could do something different. “We decided we could inject some fun into the music, and we decided a mix of Celtic folk would be somewhere that could work quite well. When we say Celtic, we don’t mean the North American interpretation of that, which is Scottish and Irish, but anywhere from France right through to Russia. It’s a very broad spectrum of music, and we injected that with comedy.” Cartwright says that the show has been compared to a program called the Pig and Whistle Show from the ‘80s, with a similar blend of music and comedy throughout. The band is busy, playing on average
60-69 gigs a year, which Cartwright admits might be too many, but they enjoy what they do so much they do not want to slow down. “That show was based on a tavern environment where you could sing along, tap your hands and tap your feet, and you can do that with us too. That kind of participation. One newspaper described it as a host of musical gems, one lady said it made chills go up and down her spine... We feel great about that. We’re not looking for personal accolades, and we’re looking for people to have a great time with us,” Cartwright says. Thistle will be at the Painted Hand Casino on November 25 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The event is free to attend.

Who hasn’t heard of Malala Yousafzai – the courageous teenager who so passionately and globally advocates for gender equality and the right to education. Her story is a reminder to us all of the power of a single voice. Her life and conviction is truly an inspiration. And now, the Government of Canada, on behalf of all Canadians, is pleased to award Malala with an honourary Canadian citizenship. In receiving it, this exceptional teen joins an elite group of foreign recipients, all of exceptional merit. In 2009, at just 11 years old, Malala, initially under a pseudonym, began writing a diary for BBC to describe the conditions in her village in Swat Valley in Pakistan. Malala gave the international community insight on Taliban oppression and violence in her community, particularly focusing on the ban on education for females. By 2011, Malala gained international prominence as she continued to speak boldly for those who were silenced. Despite Taliban death threats, Malala refused to be silent and continued to fight for her right to an education. In October 2012, while she was riding the bus home from school, the Taliban attempted to assassinate her. Defying the odds after being shot in the head at point-blank range, Malala survived
Parliamentary Report Op-Ed Column by Garry Breitkreuz the attack and has recovered. Today, she continues to boldly fight for girls’ education. By awarding honourary Canadian citizenship to Malala, our government recognizes that this incredible young woman not only shares our values but courageously advocates for them against the backdrop of Taliban extremism and oppression. In the last century, five bold Canadian women known as the Famous Five fought hard for their belief that the full participation of women is essential to a free and healthy society. They were right. Today equality is a valued Canadian staple – as is the right to an education for all. Canada is also a plu-

Saying no to bullies Saskatchewan’s Education Minister Don Morgan recently joined Legislative Secretary Jennifer Campeau, along with students, teachers, school division administrators and community organizations to release Saskatchewan’s Action Plan to Address Bullying and Cyberbullying. “No child should ever have to experience bullying,” Morgan says. “Unfortunately, that is the reality for a number of students across the country and right here in our own province. Ms. Campeau has done a tremendous job of engaging with our communities and their feedback helped to develop an action plan that will address bullying in Saskatchewan.” Based on the recommendations contained in the report, the government will take the following action: • update policies and procedures in the education sector to ensure consis-
tency in prevention, rapid response and intervention in bullying incidents; develop an anonymous online reporting tool for the reporting of bullying incidents; • assess the implications for Saskatchewan of upcoming federal cyberbullying legislation; • support students to develop appropriate and responsible online behaviour; • provide a stand-alone website for anti-bullying tools and resources for students, families and educators; and engage youth in building solutions to address bullying. “A common theme we heard throughout the consultation process is that it takes a community to raise a child and support our youth. We all have a role to play, and this is evident within the recommendations put forth,” concludes Campeau.

Saskatchewan has the highest rates of new HIV infections nation-wide, with 200 new infections
recorded over a six year period. A higher percentage of new HIV infections in Saskatchewan are young women, with 50 per cent of newly infected women being under the age of 30. As of 2008, 67,442 were diagnosed with HIV across Canada. 1 in 4 Canadians with HIV do not even know they are infected and will spread the disease to others without knowing. Advances over the last 30 years have improved treatment for those living with HIV, but there still remains no cure. HIV is a preventable and treatable disease, and individuals infected with HIV are living longer and healthier lives today due to these new advances.
“We’re very excited about working with Sunrise Health Region for this year’s high school film competition,” says Yorkton Film Festival Director Randy Goulden. “Each year, we try to find themes of importance to the community for students to work with. Personal health, and illness prevention, are important themes that we’re happy to do our part to promote.” For details visit: www. goldensheafawards.com

Career fair opens doors for local students The Good Spirit School Division, Parkland College, and Christ The Teacher Catholic Schools recently partnered to co-host Career Explorations 2013. The fourth annual education and career event encompassed all of East Central Saskatchewan. Career Explorations 2013 is one of the most vibrant education and job fairs in the province says William Litchfield, Director of Advancement at Parkland College. Roughly 80 exhibitors from Saskatchewan, Western Canada, and North Dakota attended the event. More than 2,000 high school students from Yorkton also took part. “It’s a big benefit for both the students and exhibitors,” says Litchfield. “This event gives students an idea of the many options they have when they graduate, while our exhibitors are able to speak with hundreds of potential recruits.” Good Spirit School Division and Parkland College signed a Learning
Alliance in October 2008 which led to the creation of Career Explorations. The Division and the College work together to complement and enhance the services they provide. “It’s extremely important that students know what’s available to them,” says Dwayne Reeve, Director of Education with Good Spirit School Division. “It’s often tough to decide what you want to do with your future. We get a lot of positive feedback that Career Explorations helps make that choice.” Career Explorations offers immediate access to dozens of educational institutions and numerous businesses from across Western Canada, including companies from the mining, agriculture, construction, and government sectors. “Universities, colleges, and tech schools are here, but lots of companies are hiring right now and they can be a good fit for many young people,” Litchfield concludes.

GO RIDERS! – It seems the whole province is catching the Rider bug as Saskatchewan’s team gets set to head to the Grey Cup to be held in Regina this coming Sunday. Above, Yorkton City Council members got into the spirit Monday evening at a local council meeting held Monday.
The farmer is trained Submitted by Kaare Askildt, former Preeceville area farmer in training. This one of a series on getting settled in Hazel Dell. I was working in my office, cleaning up my desk prior to Thanksgiving, when the phone rang. We have call display, but it read: “unknown number,” it was a telemarketer again. I don’t know how they are getting through to us, because we are on the “No Call” list. Their computer probably does random calls or something. Anyway, I thought I try a different tack this time. I’m a bit hard of hearing, so I played that up to try and frustrate the caller so she would give up. The call went something like this: Caller: “Hi, my name is Lisa; I’m calling from XYZ Company!” Me: “Excuse me! What did you say?” Caller: “I’m Lisa!” Me: “No, I don’t have a Nissan! I have a Ford!” Caller: “No! (enunciating) I AM LISA!” Me: “Yes, I have Visa!” Caller: “No, no! (speaking loud and slowly) My name is Lisa!” Me: “Oh, how are you?” Caller: (With a sigh) “I’m good!” Me: “What? You’re calling about wood?” Caller: (giving up) “Have a nice day!” Me: “No, no, this is not May!” Then I heard a click and the call ended with her hanging up. I never did get to know what she was calling about. Oh, well. I learned on the news the other night that there is a Saskatchewan turkey farmer that breeds about 140,000 turkeys a year! And there are two other Saskatchewan turkey farmers that produce about the same numbers. I discussed these production numbers with my grandson Connor, suggesting that we might not be able to get a turkey for Thanksgiving. Let’s see that would be about 420,000 gobblers born and bred right here in our province. Saskatchewan has about one million people, and assuming that on the average a family household equals three people making up 2/3 of the population, and the remaining 1/3 are single. It certainly looks like we might not be having a turkey this Thanksgiving, and Christmas doesn’t look too good either! Connor got that worried look on his face, so I had to re-assure him! Grandpa is just kidding Connor! Of course we are going to have a turkey for both Thanksgiving and Christmas! It might not be a Saskatchewan bird, that’s all! And next year we will raise our own turkeys! The telemarketer call reminded me about the story from the Men’s locker room at an exclusive club for the rich upper crust of Calgary oil barons, industrialists and investors. A newcomer to Calgary had met all the criteria for mem-
bership, and joined up. Several men are in the locker room of this private club after exercising. Suddenly a cell phone on one of the benches rings. The newcomer picks it up and the following conversation ensues: He: “Hello?” She (cooing): “Honey, It’s me.” He: “Sugar!” She (In a husky voice): “Are you at the club?” He: “Yes.” She (Speaking seductively): “Great! I’m at the mall 2 blocks from where you are. I saw a beautiful mink coat. It is absolutely gorgeous! Can I buy it?” He: “What’s the tag?” She (Innocently): “Only $1,500.” He: “Well, okay, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much.” She (Huskily): “Darling remember that diamond ring I talked to you about, it’s at Tiffany’s, and I’m going there afterwards. It fits me perfectly!” He: “I forgot, how much is it again?” She (Softly): “Only $10,000! Isn’t that great?” He: “How can I say no? Go ahead sweetie!” She (Cooing): “Ahhh, and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the 2013 models. I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the salesman and he gave me a really good price... and since we need to exchange the BMW that you bought me last year...” He: “How much did he quote you?” She (Sweetly): “Only $90,000!” He: “Okay, but for that kind of money I want it with all the options.” She (Excitedly): “Great! Before we hang up, something else...” He: “What?” She (Softly): “It might seem like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account and... well, I stopped by to see the real estate agent this morning and I saw that the house we had looked at when we were looking around last year is listed again. It’s on sale! Remember it? It’s the one with the pool, an English garden, an acre of parkland area, lakefront property...” He: “How much are they asking?” She (Matter of factly): “Only $2,750,000... a magnificent price, and I see that we have that much in the bank to cover...” He: “Well, then go ahead and buy it, but just bid $2,600,000, OK?” She (Seductively): “Okay, sweetie. Thanks! I’ll see you later!! I’ll have a surprise for you when you get home, if you know what I mean!!” He: Oh! I sure do!” She (Soft and sweetly): “I love you honey, bye!! He: “Bye!” The man ends the call, turns the phone off, holds it up in the air and asks aloud: “Does anyone know to whom this phone belongs?”

The Parkland’s Leading Locally Owned Insurance Provider AGENCIES LTD. Your Insurance Broker Understands
In today’s economy, everyone is looking for ways to save money, and an unexpected place to do it could be in your garage. “There are a lot of very simple things that you can either do yourself or have done for you that will help your car run more efficiently, so you can save money at the pump,” explains Megan Currie, Honeywell Consumer Products Group product manager. Here are a couple examples of how drivers can save a little green – both in their wallets, and on the road: Change the air filter: According to Environment Canada, replacing a clogged air filter can improve a car’s gas mileage by as much as 10 percent. Fram air filters are an effective solution, as most models feature bright white fibres that make it easy to spot when a filter may need checking. While not all cars are alike, this is often a very easy project that can be done in minutes. Try a fuel additive: Using a fuel additive like Prestone Complete Fuel
System Cleaner every 6,400 kilometers helps improve acceleration and fuel economy by unclogging fuel injectors and cleaning intake valves and combustion chambers. “All you need to do is pour it into your gas tank and drive away to improved performance,” Currie stated. Now, carrying out simple activities like this doesn’t mean you should avoid your local automotive service provider. Deferred maintenance can cost you way more in the long run. So, still plan to schedule those routine visits to ensure your car is in good working order and don’t put off activities such as oil changes and tune ups. Consider changing out spark plugs for ones that offer a faster, more efficient burn. Autolite XP Xtreme Performance spark plugs ignite the gas and air mixture inside the cylinders more efficiently than .8mm finewire, multi-electrode design and standard plugs, resulting in improved throttle response and acceleration. This, in turn, helps provide top fuel efficien-
cy over the life of the plug. Also, ask your technician to use synthetic oil and a filter like the FRAM Extended Guard synthetic oil filter. It may cost a little more upfront, but you’ll be able to go 11,000 kilometers before your next oil and filter change. Your owner’s manual will tell you what kind of oil to use and how often to have it changed. Finally, ensure your vehicle has received the proper cooling system maintenance. Prestone experts suggest that neglected antifreeze/ coolant can lead to corrosion, overheating and boil overs – and could cost lots of money to repair. Whether you do it yourself or have it done for you, preventative maintenance is the key to healthy cars and healthy wallets. Think of it this way, you can pay now for regular maintenance or potentially pay much more later for costly repairs or vehicle breakdowns. More information and tips can be found online at www.honeywellcpg. com. - News Canada
Tips to stretch your auto maintenance budget In today’s economy, everyone is looking for ways to stretch their dollars. Spending money on auto maintenance is a fact of life for most Canadians, but here are a few quick money saving tips that will really make a difference in your annual budget: • Use a premium oil filter. A Fram Extended Guard synthetic oil filter is a good choice. Regular oil changes are essential to keeping a vehicle run-
ning smoothly, but using a filter designed for longer drain intervals will help you go more kilometers between oil changes. • Change your dirty, clogged air filter to help improve your fuel economy and save more money at the pump. • Purchase a premixed 50/50 antifreeze coolant which is compatible with antifreeze/coolant in all vehicle makes and models, such as Prestone
Premixed LongLife. This way, you can use it to top off all the cars in your household. • Do not defer regular maintenance. Think of it this way, you can pay now for regular maintenance or potentially pay much more later for costly repairs or vehicle breakdowns.

5 ways to maintain your vehicle Auto Electric Service Ltd
Whether having your vehicle serviced regularly or attempting to tackle the job on your own, keeping your vehicle in good working condition will maximize its performance and help you to save on costly repairs down the road. The auto team at Canadian Tire has the following tips for Canadians looking to get the most out of their vehicle this year: Check your brakes The brake system in your vehicle is imperative for keeping you and your loved ones safe. Common signs of brake problems include a high-pitched screeching sound when applying the brakes, brakes that are not as responsive as they should be, a pedal that 'sinks' towards the floor, vibration on the brake pedal or a grinding metallic sound. If you experience any of these signs, drop by your local Canadian Tire so an experienced mechanic can take a look. Top up 'vital fluids' Keeping your vehicle running well requires constant monitoring of vital fluids. Fluids that should be monitored and topped up on a regular basis include: • Engine oil • Transmission fluid • Engine coolant • Power steering fluid • Brake fluid • Windshield washer fluid Replace shocks and struts Ensuring your vehicle has adequate shocks and struts will increase your vehicle's safety and performance. Worn
shocks and struts can cause uneven tire wear, damage suspension components, and cause unusual drift and sway to your vehicle. Change your tires With the harsh winters we've been experiencing, more Canadians have been relying on winter tires for increased safety in cold, wet weather. It is important that winter tires be replaced with all-season tires in the spring, as the rubber compound is different and performs differently in warmer temperatures. Driving on winter tires throughout the summer is hard on them and will decrease their lifespan. Oil/ Air Filter Change Your car's filters have a
Power Up For Winter
significant impact on engine life and performance – they also have an effect on fuel consumption and emissions. While the oil filter's job is to remove oil contaminants, the air filter captures airborne contaminants, like bugs and dirt, preventing them from entering your engine. Left unchanged, dirty air and oil filters can lead to poor acceleration, lower gas mileage, poor engine performance and serious repairs. Ensure your vehicle runs well this year and for years to come by visiting you local Canadian Tire auto service department for more tips and maintenance products.

“Let Us Know” Before The Snow Keeping up with your car’s maintenance schedule is a great way to add years to the life of your vehicle.
(MS) — Maintaining a vehicle can be akin to maintaining one’s body. If you keep up with an exercise routine for yourself, those sessions at the gym get easier with each day. However, if you lag behind in your workouts or don’t work out at all, the sessions get harder and your body is worse for the wear. Such is the case with your car as well. Keeping up with regular maintenance of your vehicle can add years to its life, not to mention dollars to its resale value. Ignoring the little things, however, can prove both damaging and expensive. Fortunately, the small tasks you need to do for your car won’t leave you feeling as taxed as the sit-ups and push-ups you need to do to keep your body running smoothly. • Replace your air filter. This is one of the more commonly overlooked maintenance tips for keeping a vehicle running smoothly. Replacing the air filter is both easy and very beneficial to your car. The air filter’s job is to stop contaminants from getting into the engine. This can include dust and leaves. If enough debris gets into your air filter, the engine won’t be able to suck enough air into its combustion chambers, causing the car to run roughly and frequently lose power. In highly neglected cases, cars will stop running entirely. Most vehicle manuals will recommend changing the air filter at certain designated mileage intervals. For people who drive in heavy stop-and-go traffic or frequent dirt roads, it’s a good idea to cut those mileage recommendations in half. • Stick to your oil-change schedule. Routinely going past the mileage recommendations for oil changes will eventually and inevitably lead you down a road no one want to go down: the major repair road. Oil changes are inexpensive and typically take less than 430 minutes to do (if your don’t do them yourself). Over the years, the mileage recommendations for oil changes have fluctuated. The standard used to be every 3,000 miles. However, newer cars can often add a couple thousand miles onto that number. Factors such as age, how the car is used, how the driver drives and other arbitrary factors can greatly influence how badly your car needs an oil change. Vehicle manuals may recommend a change as few as every 3,000 miles or as many as every 10,000 miles. In general, if your car is newer, every 5,000 miles should be safe and good for your car.
Whatever schedule you go by, keeping up with it is imperative. Thanks to the high operating temperature of a car’s engine, oil’s effectiveness as a lubricant lessens as the miles go by. If you continually neglect changing your oil, you engine’s parts will rub against one another, leaving you with costly repairs and possibly in need of a new engine. • Rotate your tires. For new-car buyers, a tire rotation is often a perk of buying a vehicle from a dealership. Most dealers will provide free tire rotations (in addition to other services such as oil changes) whenever necessary. For those who don’t have such deals or prefer to go to their private mechanics, rotating your tires should be on the docket just like oil changes and changing the air filter. Some in the auto industry debate the overall effectiveness of tire rotations, which are designed to add more life to your tires. However, regular rotations that cost money can negate any savings you might get by squeezing an extra few miles out of your tires. An insider’s tip that could save you the cost of a rotation and add some extra life to your tires is to ask your mechanic to do it when you’re getting other work done that requires the tires to be off the car anyway (i.e., a brake job). A mechanic you go to regularly likely won’t charge for the rotation, and you’ll have the best of both worlds: rotated tires and no bill for the service. • Change your transmission fluid. This is another commonly overlooked maintenance tip. Since the mileage recommendations for changing your transmission fluid can be up to every 100,000 miles (for automatic transmissions), it’s no wonder this is overlooked. However, that doesn’t mean it should be forgotten. Transmission fluid needs to be replaced for much the same reason oil needs to be changed. Since it’s a lubricant, transmission fluid gradually breaks down over time in an automatic transmission (which generates more heat in operation than a manual transmission). As the transmission then begins to wear down, worn down bits of the transmission get into the fluid, shortening the transmission’s life span. The same contamination occurs in a manual transmission, though more quickly, which is why it’s often recommended drivers with a manual transmission replace their transmission fluid every 30,000 to 60,000 miles.

Almost half of Canadian parents are concerned about how their children would be affected if they weren’t able to reduce their amount of debt. With the school year in full swing and the holidays right around the corner, financial strains are at the forefront of many Canadian families’ minds. A new study of Canadian parents conducted by Ipsos Reid on behalf of MNP Ltd., reveals that while most parents believe they are more than competent financial role models for their children, a sizeable portion believe that how they handle their

finances is having a negative impact on their children. More than half (56 per cent) of Canadian families avoid discussing family finances, including financial problems with their children. In addition, three in four parents noted that their children do not ask questions about money and the family finances. This opens up a door for parents to begin teaching their children about money management. Across Canada, November is Financial Literacy Awareness month; an initiative strongly encouraged by MNP Ltd. The goal is to get parents talking to their children about family finances before financial strains adverse-

ly affect their children’s future. “Engaging youth early is key to ensuring poor money management habits do not form,” says Grant Bazian, President, MNP Ltd. and bankruptcy trustee. “By the time we see individuals in the bankruptcy process it’s often too late. Proper financial literacy skills learned early on could help a substantial number of Canadians avoid financial difficulties, including bankruptcy and insolvency later in life.” While many parents consider themselves effective money managers and role models, this does not mean that a sizable segment of parents don’t have their fair share of concerns.

of the biggest concerns is the effect of a parent’s money strain on their relationship with their children. One in five (20 per cent) agree that their relationship with their children has been impacted or strained by their current financial situation. “Our goal is to provide a sense of urgency to parents; we encourage them to address their financial issues and talk to their children about money management to ensure lifelong financial literacy,” concludes Bazian.

MATTHEW COX dumps the puck in from the neutral zone during the Terriers win over the Flin Flon Bombers on Sunday. Yorkton earned three out of four points on the weekend, losing to Weyburn in the shootout.
Terriers earn three points at FAA over weekend By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer The last place Weyburn Red Wings have had the Yorkton Terriers number in the first half of the 2013/14 SJHL season. Sitting in the basement of the Viterra Division, the Red Wings reprised their Opening Night upset over the Terriers with a shootout win at the Farrell Agencies Arena on Friday, stealing a point from the hosts who were looking to overtake first place from Melville. In the loss the Terriers took the lead twice over the Red Wings and outshot their opponents from Weyburn 4527, but couldn’t shake off a scrappy Wings squad backed by the outstanding goaltending of Rylan Parenteau, who made 43 saves in the shootout win on Friday. Kale Thomson made 24 saves on 26 shots in a less busy night in between the posts.

Harvest sweep Beardy’s at FAA, lose in Tisdale By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer After getting swept in their return to the FAA by the Saskatoon Contacts last weekend, Yorkton Harvest head coach Dan Cross made it a mission for the team to get two wins over the Beardy’s Blackhawks on home ice on Saturday and Sunday to make up for dropping points in their return to home. It got interesting at times on Sunday, but at the end of the weekend the young Harvest club completed the goal Cross set out for them with two wins over the Blackhawks to move them back up the Saskatchewan AAA Midget Hockey League standings. On Saturday the Harvest took advantage of a two goal first period and two goals from Seattle Thunderbirds prospect Tyler Kreklewich to earn a 5-2 win over Beardy’s. Marc Shaw opened the scoring up for the Harvest with five minutes left in the opening period and
Riley Rozdeba scored with just six seconds on the clock as the Harvest set the tone with two late goals in the first that were the eventual turning points in the win. Kreklewich’s first goal of the second period put it out of reach with a 3-0 lead that the Blackhawks could not recover from. Carson Bogdan made 30 saves in the win for the Harvest in the win. It would be much needed for the Harvest, who snapped a short losing skid with the win and set up a Sunday afternoon clash where the hosts could snatch all four points over their visitors. It would turn out to be quite the adventure for the Harvest. The Harvest would come out flying in the first period, outshooting Beardy’s 20-6 and roaring out to a 3-0 lead. A goal from Corwin Stevely less than two minutes in was followed by a powerplay goal from Jaden Kreklewich and a marker from blueliner Turner Ottenbreit to
send the Harvest into the second period quite confident that they would be earning their second W over the weekend. It turned out that the Blackhawks weren’t about to give up. Coming back with a flurry of goals over their own, the Blackhawks scored three straight unanswered goals in the first five minutes of the second period to tie the game up at 3-3. With the game falling apart, Cross was faced with the tough decision to pull promising rookie goaltender Carter Phair to send a message to his players to wake up and get back into the game. “I had to make a move to send a message to the team that what effort they came out with wasn’t going to get the job done and it was costing us the game,” says Cross, who mentioned that the move to pull Phair will likely not be the last time he pulls his goalie and that the youngster has been great for the team thus far.
CARSON BOGDAN moves in the crease late in the Harvest’s 6-4 win over the Beardy’s Blackhawks, the Harvest won despite blowing a 3-0 lead to start the second period. “Carter has went above and beyond all of our expectations so far this season and taking him out of the game
had very little to do about his play and it won’t be the last time he gets pulled in his career,” says Cross who
has been impressed with the play of Phair in 2013 so far. Cont. on Page 23.
McCallum makes his mark on the pitch with UBCO By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer Finishing his third year as a member of the University of British Columbia Okanagan Heat’s soccer program, Yorkton’s Brandon McCallum saw his 2013 season as both a success and a difficult season at the same time. Earning a consistent role at the centreback position McCallum had his most successful season on a personal level by earning his most minutes on the pitch at the college level to date, but the Heat missed the PAC West Playoffs on a tiebreaker to a team they lost in their first game of the season after dropping points in three of their final four matches. Still looking back on 2013, McCallum was pleased overall on how the season went despite the sting of missing out on the playoffs for the second straight season before the Heat move into the CIS soccer ranks in 2014. “We missed the playoffs in 2012 and worked hard to make our goal to win a title this season and to miss out on the playoffs was a tough pill to swallow but it was a good learning experience for our team,” says McCallum who added that the team did technically do just enough to make the playoffs which made it harder to take. “Missing out on a tiebreak result from our first game of the season made it worse. You couldn’t blame McCallum for feeling like his increase in playing time was a consolation prize for the growing experience of a tough end to the season. Working hard over the past two offseasons while in Yorkton to work on his speed and strength, McCallum hit a growth spurt while in university and has moved to the centreback position, a role McCallum didn’t have much experience in from his youth playing days with the Yorkton United Football Club. “Playing centreback was entirely new to me when I came here, but for the past years coach has really helped me

learn the position and along with some hard work in the offseason at getting stronger I felt confident in myself and it was good to get some starts this season.” At the end of 2013 the Heat finished over .500 with seven wins, six losses and six draws for a 7-6-6 record in all competitions. In the PAC West they finished 6-5-3 in their final season in the lower divisions of Canadian university soccer. A 4-2 home loss on the first day of the season to
YORKTON’S BRANDON MCCALLUM has enjoyed a successful stay at the Kelowna’s UBC campus, earning a significant role on the UBCO Heat’s Varsity soccer roster. The team will be joining the CIS in 2014.

Vancouver Island eventually came to haunt them. Once out of the playoffs, the Heat also watched a team they beat represent BC at Nationals finish third. Next year McCallum says the team is planning on being equally competitive while making the jump to the CIS. “We have a good coach who has a lot of connections with the Provincial Team program in BC and that has brought a lot of talented players into the team recently and moving to the CIS will likely mean even more talented recruits will want to come play here so it is going to continue to be even more competitive next year,” says McCallum, who expects to continue to improve this summer by working in the gym and getting some touches in with the YUFC’s mens team in Regina’s mens league. “Having a team to come to in the summer is a plus, especially last year having a mens league to play in once a week, but most of the improvement I make is in the gym during the season and in the offseason,” adds McCallum who has grown in height and has added significant muscle to move into the defensive position from playing midfield and forward. He hopes that he can continue to grow as his university career draws to its final years. Heading into season in the top flight of Canadian soccer if exciting for McCallum, but he says that he was unaware of the move when he came to UBCO. “The school has kept growing and I lucked out on picking a great program,” says McCallum who hopes to continue to be a prominent fixture on the team sheet when the team joins the CIS next year. “I just hope that I can keep working hard and earn a roster spot and some starts again with the Starting XI next season,” closes McCallum. “We are planning on having a solid team with an influx of talented players coming in so am already preparing in the gym for 2014.”

town rink when the Terriers hosted the Flin Flon Bombers. While it may not have been noticeable to the causal spectator on Sunday, it was a special moment for the family and the two officials. “People might say it is just officiating and wonder why we were so excited, but we had family and friends come and watch us call a game together and it felt like we were kids again playing minor hockey,” says Tarrington., who mentioned that he tries to help give his younger brother the same advice older officials give him. “In the officiating community we all text and email each other with questions and tips and share opinions with each other on certain calls often so I try to give the same type of advice to Tannum whenever I can,” says the older brother. Tannum echoed his older brother and admitted that it is usually him asking for the advice rather than his older brother giving Tarrington’s experience. “Tarrington has been a round a bit longer so it isn’t often that I am the one giving the advice, but if I need help with something off
or on the ice I always know I can give him a call and pick his brain,” says Tannum. Tarrington started his officiating career in minor hockey, first as a way to pick up some extra cash, but a part time job soon turned into a skill and a talent. Now Tarrington takes growing as an official seriously, trying to improve each day. “After I saw how far officiating could go I started getting a bit more serious about it and consider it like playing, we have to be on the ice for the full sixty minutes and be able to not only keep up with the pace but be in good enough shape to make smart decisions in a split second while being in the right position,” says Tarrington who mentions that gym time is one of the underrated aspects of officiating in the Western league and the next level. “Our officiating director expects us to be in great shape so I try to make sure I am in the gym every day improving my cardio while also working on the fundamentals of officiating,” says Tarrington. Tannum is looking at his older brother’s career path and is hop-
ing he can take get there some day. “Getting to work my first Junior game was exciting and you could definitely notice the quicker pace and I hope to get some more assignments this season and continue to work on getting better.” As for Tarrington, he
hopes to keep rising through the officiating ranks, but knows that the next step to the pros may be off a ways. “One day officiating pro hockey would be a dream come true, but for now I am enjoying getting my foot in the door in the Western league and now getting the assignment for the
U-17’s will be an equally as exciting experience getting to call the international game.” As for his little brother’s performance, Tarrington was impressed with the youngster. “I told him after the first period, you are doing fine kid, keep it up.”
TARRINGTON AND TANNUM WYONZEK both have started promising officiating careers as of late with Tarrington working in the WHL and Tannum winning Hockey Canada’s Promising Official Award. The two worked an SJHL game together Sunday.
Terriers solid in Trent Cassan’s return to the bench Cont from Page 19.
Cassan also gave credit to the strong early season play of Parenteau, who with Alex Wakaluk, Matt Hrynkiw and Dawson MacAuley all moving on after the 2012/13 season, has emerged as one of the SJHL’s best goaltenders so far. “When you look around at the goalies in this league, you have to give him the nod as one of the more solid starters in the league and he has given us troubles in the times we have faced him and that is a big part of why Weyburn is so tough to play,” says Cassan who also pointed out Parenteau is relatively young for the Junior ranks. On Sunday the Terriers finished off the weekend with a clash against the Flin Flon Bombers. While the crowd was sparse until the end of the Saskatchewan Roughriders West Final clash with the Calgary Stampeders, the Terriers gave the fans who did end up coming to the Farrell Agencies Arena to a full effort. After a scoreless first period the Terriers opened the
scoring with Gervais’ second goal of the weekend on an assist from playmaking linemate Tayler Thompson before rookies Tyson Enzie and Zach Zadorozniak combined for a goal just over halfway in the second to put the Terriers up 2-0. Defensman Danys Chartrand would score shortly after for Flin Flon to put the game back to within one, but Dalton Menke would step up with some late insurance to end the second period, scoring his third of the year to put the game out of reach for good for the Bombers. Daylan Gatzke would add his second goal of the weekend on the powerplay to make it a 4-1 final. Postgame Cassan was pleased with how the weekend went for the Terriers depite their shootout loss Friday. “Overall this was a real successful weekend for us, we got some guys who haven’t been on the board in awhile getting going for us and earned three out of four points which at the end of the day is something we can be happy with.”
Cassan was returning behind the bench this weekend after a two week stint with the Canada West team at the World Junior A Hockey Challenge. With a busy schedule and a time zone switch being in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Cassan mentioned that he took a hands off approach and let assistants Casey O’Brien and Gord Pritchard as well as respected GM and former head coach Don Chesney take care of the operations in Yorkton while he was away. “I have to thank the Yorkton Terriers organization for first allowing me to spend so much time away from the team for around two weeks and then the staff for doing such a good job while I was gone which was no surprise given the hard work that Casey, Gord, and Don do on a daily basis within the club.” Cassan also said that the experience helped him think about things differently and see styles of play he might not see in the SJHL. “With the best players in each Junior A league coming together for the Canadian
teams and some really strong international groups the game was definitely faster and with the challenge of a lack of familiarity you had to think on the fly and develop an understanding of your players strengths and weaknesses very quickly to make the required adjustments which was an exciting challenge,” says Cassan who admitted figuring out who was who was a challenge at first. “During the exhibition game it was definitely nice to have a roster because you would be trying to remember names while evaluate what was going on on the ice.” Looking ahead to this week the Terriers have stiff competition in hosting the La Ronge Ice Wolves before a home and away series with their Highway 10 rivals in the Melville Millionaires as the two teams continue to battle for first place in the Viterra Division before the Christmas Break. After posting an eye popping home record in 2012/13 when the team was the Canalta Cup champions, Cassan is hoping the team can return back to the FAA
after a long road trip and pile up some wins, but is downplaying the possibility of the Terriers nearly going undefeated at the FAA again. “What we did last year was something you might not even see in the SJHL for another ten years and when you look at how close some of the scores around the league and some of the wins we got last year at home we won some close games where we got one or two bounces we needed to win in the regular season, so it is hard to say we will be able to repeat that, but winning games at home is a key focus for us,” says Cassan. As of writing the Terriers and Millionaires are tied for first in the league with 49 points apiece putting them in a three way tie for Kindersley for top in the SJHL. With the Mils and Terriers reigniting their rivalry with two games this weekend, the intensity is sure to be high with a chance to move into sole possession of first place in the Viterra Division with a sweep of their hated rivals. The league will be watching.

Win or lose, 2013 a dream season for Roughriders It was a long, and sometimes downright frustrating season for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. After an undefeated start it appeared that the Riders decided to concede the months of September-October to the rest of the CFL. Losing dubious games with poor offensive, defensive, and character along with the lack of star running back Kory Sheets. 2013 was looking like a dream turned into a nightmare by Thanksgiving time for the Rider Nation. After losing to the Calgary Stampeders to fully relinquish any chance of hosting what felt like an inevitable Riders-Stamps West Final, things were looking grim, but Dwight Anderson and a handful of Riders made it clear they felt otherwise. Claiming that they would be back at McMahon Stadium, Anderson said that they were the better football team after the loss, something that was played off as sour grapes, but quietly was a prophetic guarantee for a two week span that might as well have been spent in a coma for football crazy Saskatchewan. With the Grey Cup at Taylor Field for likely the last time the Riders, who have long tormented their diehard fans, rose to the occasion. For a generation of Riders fans that have endured the 13th Man, Paul McCallum’s miss (and other less famous heartbreaks that are too long to list) this month has been long coming and while it isn’t over yet and there is a game to play on Sunday, it has been one of best in the history of a franchise that has only three Grey Cup’s in an over 100 year history. It hasn’t always been this way for the Saskatchewan Roughriders and it is easy to forget that based on where things are now. This is a team that where at one point a winning season was as big of a miracle as 2013 was. A team that had to actively be saved by its fans on occasions, and failed to make the playoffs for four straight seasons from 1998-2001. They even had to host telethons to simply keep the team from collapsing financially on more than one occasion. Now the Roughriders are a country wide phenomenon and are the most popular team in the
Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig CFL based nearly entirely on the passion that Saskatchewan has for its team. From merchandising on the level of a major professional sports team and more creatively named Co-Op Brand junk food items you can think of, Pilsner box cowboy hats, fake watermelon heads, and trinkets you can think of the Riders are a bustling money making machine that is set to get a new stadium and is always considered at the very least an outside contender to make the Grey Cup. Since the first time they made the playoffs in 2002, the Riders have rattled off playoff seasons in all but one year (2011, Greg Marshall, don’t remind us) and have made the Grey Cup now four times. Still it has been mostly heartbreak for the Riders in those Grey Cups. 2007 against Ryan Dinwiddie still marks the only time for all of the Riders playoff successes that Saskatchewan has lifted the title. Getting their hearts stomped out by the Montreal Alouettes twice in 2009 and then in 2010 in games decided by a combined four points was fitting for a franchise that always seemed due for a stomach punch loss just as soon as they got your hopes up. That history and those years of near misses, and the heartbreak that came along with it, had last Sunday looming on the calendar like the date of an execution. Combining last year’s loss on the final play of the game at McMahon in the West Semi-
Final with all of the buildup to what was one of the more highly anticipated West Finals of all time could only be a build up to another crushing defeat for the Riders. I was prepared for the worst and it turned out to be one of the best start to finish showings of execution from the Riders in recent memory. Darian Durant was brilliant, making plays with his legs and connecting to every receiver for a big play, Kory Sheets dominated Jon Cornish and left no debate on who the best rusher in the CFL is, and Geroy Simon, who has been hit and miss since coming to Saskatchewan as a free agent to bring the Cup to Regina as hosts, even chipped in with some big catches. What we all witnessed at the start of the season as we prematurely dreamt of a Grey Cup run before things fell apart came back when it mattered the most. Big running holes for Sheets, timely defensive plays, Durant winning the turnover battle and making big plays to the Riders talented batch of wideouts. It was all there. And in front of a ground that was 80% Riders fans by the end of the game, it couldn’t have been sweeter. The Riders are favourites on Sunday, and in a home game against a team they have been historically good against they should be expected to win. Win or lose on Sunday, I am already chalking up the 2013 Saskatchewan Roughriders season as one of the best years of my life as a sports fan. Writing about my childhood team making a run to host a Grey Cup in my first years as a writer will be something I will never forget and I am sure hundreds of thousands of people across the province and the country feel the same way. In a league that is often criticized and dismissed to the NHL and the NFL in its own country the Riders are a symbol for how much one, small, and perpetual frustrating sports team can matter to an entire province more than you would ever think. For three hours on Sunday, a dream that every Riders fan has had will become a reality. Win or lose, that is why we fell in love with the game in the first place. Dreams will come true at Taylor Field
Rider Report: Grey Cup Preview, dream final at Taylor Field upon us By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer Sunday’s impressive win over the Calgary Stampeders from the Saskatchewan Roughriders followed what was a dream scenario for the CFL brass as two CFL teams with passionate diehard fanbases and a healthy connection in former players will be matched up against each other at Taylor Field on Sunday night in Regina. The East champs Hamilton, led by former Riders quarterback Henry Burris, slotback Andy Fantuz, and head coach of the 2007 Grey Cup Champion Riders Kent Austin will be making the trip back to where it all started for them when they attempt to upset the entire province of Saskatchewan in the 101st installment of Canadaian football’s biggest stage, the Grey Cup. It wasn’t an expected Grey Cup in July. The Riders spayed the Tiger-Cats 37-0 at Taylor Field before backup Drew Willy beat the Tabbies in Guelph just on week later in a slightly closer 32-20 contest. Hamilton bounced back, won a wild game in Guelph where they have been playing while their new stadium is being constructed in Hamilton amidst crazy weather against the Als before going out and shocking the defending Grey Cup Champion Toronto Argonauts at Rogers Center on Sunday to become the first team to punch their ticket into the Grey Cup. Hours afterwards the Roughriders did their part, dominating their rivals in the Stamps 35-13 taking advantage of seven turnovers and imposing their will on Calgary with a brilliant passing performance from Darian Durant. Durant, who completed 24 of 30 attempts for 280 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday’s 35-13 win over the Stampeders, said there is no way any Riders players will be happy just to play in the Grey Cup at home. “We don’t want to just get there. We want to win it,” Durant said to the media postgame. “There’s no need to sit here and go through all of this and lose the Grey Cup at home. That would be disappointing. It’s great to get there, but we still have one more game left.” Durant continued by mentioning the two heartbreaking losses the Riders endured to the Als before missing the playoffs in 2011 and then losing to Calgary in the first round in 2012. Durant says that those frustrations and setbacks will have the Riders motivated to seal the deal in what is essentially the biggest home game in the history of the CFL’s now most popular franchise. “We have veterans in here who have lost Grey Cups. I’ve been through heartbreaking Grey Cups. So we have to make sure we enjoy this now, but focus on what we have to do next week to win that game.” The Riders made sure not to touch the West Final trophy, employing a tradition that is rich in hockey history by sending a message that the West
Trophy isn’t what you want, it is the fourth Grey Cup in the history of the Riders franchise that Saskatchewan is after. That fourth Grey Cup will be put on the line against a handful of former Freen and White fixtures who were apart of some memorable Rider moments in their own rights. Former Riders who now play for the Tiger-Cats include quarterback Henry Burris, slotback Andy Fantuz and kicker Luca Congi. Former Riders GM Eric Tillman is also a Tiger-Cats consultant. The most infamous of that group is obviously Burris, who promised that he would bring Saskatchewan a Grey Cup before bolting for a better deal in Calgary. That sparked the Stampeders-Riders rivalry to new heights in the mid-late 00’s, where Saskatchewan made it their mission to own Burris and the Stampeders. Expect tons of chants of “Hennnrrryyyyyy” from the over 40,000 at Taylor Field on Sunday. Burris will be looking to connect with Fantuz, who left Saskatchewan after leaving for the NFL dream and coming back for a short stint before the Riders decided to part ways. It has been a move that has paid off more for the Riders than it has Fantuz as of late. Chris Getzlaf has replaced his production along with Taj Smith and Weston Dressler has developed into arguable the best downfield weapon in the CFL. Still expect to see some big plays out of the former Riders who will be surely motivated to remind the Rider Nation what they are missing with the Championship on the line. Saskatchewan’s biggest weapon in this game is Kory Sheets, who along with an improved and confident offensive line is playing some of the best football of his life since returning from injury. Sheets said post game after Calgary that he credits the line for a game where he out produced rival Jon Cornish by a ton. “It was a mindset in this offence and in this locker-room that no matter who they put out there we were going to take care of business,” Sheets said. “That O-line, they had it in their mind that they could’ve put the best D-line in the NFL in front of them and they were going to move them. “That was their mindset, and that’s what they went out there and did.” The Grey Cup is also likely going to be the most watched Grey Cup of all time. With the East Final seeing record ratings and the move of the needle the Riders always bring when playing coming together we could be seeing an eye popping number of viewers that will please TSN and league brass. Saskatchewan is already preparing for a week of Grey Cup festivities that are bound to make Regina one of the most happening cities in the country for one week. What better way to celebrate the likely final Grey Cup at Taylor Field than in a rematch of the ‘89 Grey Cup that involves former Riders legends on both sides of the field. Prepare for a classic on Sunday.

Harvest hold on against Beardy’s in wild Cont. from Page 20
Yorkton dug themselves in a deeper hole, letting in one more goal with Bogdan in net to push the score to 4-3 for Beady’s, but the team regroupd and responded well after the second period intermission and some likely choice words from their head coach after blowing a three goal lead after outshooting Beadry’s 20-6 in the first period. After the second the Blackhawks had scored four goals on 14 shots outshooting the Harvest 14-9, Cross said the drop off was expected, but the goals just kept piling on and on in a hurry. “Being up three goals you expect a natural easing up of your players because of that lack of urgency and to their credit Beardy’s came out in the second ready to come back into this hockey game after giving three goals up of their own unanswered in the first,” says Cross. “To our guys credit they came back and recovered.” Jaden Kreklewich scored with less than three minutes gone in the third period to tie the game up and turn back the momentum. With Carson Bogdan settled in goal stopping 22 of the games final 23 shots from the Blackhawks, Koal Roberts got the game winning goal near the midway mark of the third before the defense held on to a one goal lead until Tanner Jeannot scored an empty netter to close the deal. Postgame Cross was happy with the end result. “We came out with the mission to make up fro last weekend with four points and we did it, it may have

got a little bit more exciting than we would have counted on, but our guys responded well and battled to get the job done. Yorkton fell 7-4 to Tisdale on the road on Tuesday night at the Tisdale Recplex with another multi goal second period proving to be the turning point. Tisdale responded to a late Tyler Kreklewich goal to send the game into the second period 1-1 with three goals in the second, including a late on with :30 left on the clock from Tanner Negal to make it 4-2 going into
the third. Marc Shaw would score first in the third to put the Harvest within one, but a powerplay goal from Drew Litwin and an added insurance marker from Wyatt Hinson put the game away for good in a Trojans win. Yorkton plays host to the Mintos on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. the Harvest are currently in a four way tie for third place with Prince Albert, making the game one that is sure to have early implications in the standings.
