Heli-pad campaign kicked off
By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer
The STARS Air Ambulance has been flying its helicopter throughout the province, and the Yorkton Regional Health Center will be getting some upgrades to allow it to better accommodate the service. The Health Foundation has begun a campaign to raise money to install a heli-pad at the hospital. The community has to pay $155,000 of the renovations, with the province providing 75 per cent of the total funds needed to build the pad. The heli-pad needs to be fenced, lighted, and have strobes which direct the helicopter at night. There also will be a runway from the pad to the hospital, and the hospital itself needs a doorway to the pad which provides direct access to emergency. The STARS program itself involves a
helicopter with a critical care nurse and advanced care paramedic. The helicopter also has advanced equipment on board, such as portable ultrasound machines, cardiac monitors and ventilators. “It makes a lot of sense for us to participate in this program and bring it here. It does a couple of main things. It delivers people to care very fast, for some people it will get them to hospital in time to save their life,” explains Ross Fisher, executive director of The Health Foundation. The region has approximately 6,000 ambulance calls annually, and while many don’t qualify for STARS, there are still many accidents, and heart attacks and strokes, as well as people needing help in more remote locations due to farming or hunting. “When you look at the kind of ambu-
lance calls we get within this region, we have a need for the STARS program. It will make a difference for some people in whether or not they live, but will also make a difference for some people in their recovery time,” Fisher says. Putting a pad in place in Yorkton would make it easier for patients to get to a doctor in this area, he explains, and speed is the main goal of the program. Allowing patients to go to Yorkton would give more options for STARS and greater chances for students. With plans in the works for new hospital in the near future, Fisher notes that any future designs will have a heli-pad integrated from the beginning of the design process. He says that the hope is to have the money raised by the end of the year, and construction complete with the heli-pad operational by June 2013.
The Government of Saskatchewan has announced it is releasing a 25 Year Saskatchewan Water Security Plan as a part of a commitment made during the 2011 election. For the first time, all of government’s core water management responsibilities and technical expertise will come together to ensure a comprehensive and integrated approach to water management. “Our government is responding to stakeholders who strongly identified the need for a long-term and comprehensive water strategy,” Minister responsible for the Water Security Agency Ken Cheveldayoff comments. “We are excited to create a strong new agency to oversee this vision of a key provincial resource as we move forward and address the opportunities as well as the challenges of growth. We want to ensure there is a sustainable water supply available to support our growth, a healthy environment and our quality of life.” The plan will ensure the sustainability and quality of Saskatchewan’s surface and ground water supplies while protecting drinking water supplies from the source to the tap. The plan outlines seven goals: Sustainable Supplies, Drinking Water Safety, Protection of Water Resources, Safe and Sustainable Dams, Flood and Drought Damage Reduction, Adequate Data, Information and Knowledge and Effective Governance and Engagement. “The new Water Security Agency will not only see the strategy implemented province-wide, but it will improve service to individuals, businesses and communities,” Cheveldayoff adds.

One click of the mouse – sometimes that’s all it takes to lose something infinitely precious. Your written memories, your family photos, your money... even your identity. Minister of Public Safety, the Honourable Vic Toews recently launched Cyber Security Awareness month by encouraging people to connect with Get Cyber Safe. Get Cyber Safe is the Government’s national public awareness initiative, and its intent is to help Canadians protect themselves and their families against online threats of many kinds. People without a suspicious nature imagine that because they don’t use the computer for banking or business, they’re safe online. Cyber-criminals target people like that.

International Year of
Cooperatives International Year of Co-operatives 2012 So what exactly are Co-operatives? What differentiates them from other forms of business? What are the advantages of Co-operatives for members and communities in general? Co-operatives are business enterprises owned and controlled by the very members that they serve. Their member-driven nature is one of the most clearly differentiating factors of Co-operative enterprises. This fact means that decisions made in Co-operatives are balanced by the pursuit of profit, and the needs and interests of members and their communities. Co-operatives take many forms and operate in all sectors of society. Most share a unique set of principles which keep them attuned with their member-driven characterization. The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2012 as the International Year of Co-operatives, highlighting the contribution of Co-operatives to socio-economic development, particularly their impact on poverty reduction, employment generation and social integration. With the theme of “Co-operative Enterprises Build a Better World”, the Year seeks to encourage the growth and establishment of Co-operatives all over the world. Yorkton Co-op is no different. Members have the ability to speak to local management and Board of Directors who make decisions based on wants and needs of the members. Savings are distributed to members based on an allocation each year in April. In April of 2012, members shared in a distribution of more than $3,970,000 in cash and equity based on their individual purchases. To learn more about your local Co-op, contact Yorkton Co-operative Association Limited at 783-3601 or visit our website at www.yorktoncoop.com.

Growing a bigger Saskatchewan An additional 1.2 million people by 2020 is the goal Premier Brad Wall has just announced for the province. “Over the past five years, Saskatchewan people have seen the benefits of a growing province – more jobs, more opportunities and more revenue to deal with the challenges of growth,” he says. “Those benefits are why we seek growth – so we can improve our health system and shorten surgical wait times, so we can do more for the most vulnerable people in our province, so we can balance the budget and pay down debt, so we can have more career opportunities for our young people. That’s why growth is important and why we want it to continue.” Growth is good but with it will come challenges which in addition to the benefits, we are also seeing. So long as the government strives to meet the needs of all Saskatchewan’s residents we will continue on an upward swing. Among the plans for the province are added investments in infrastructure; developing a skilled workforce; ensuring competitiveness; increasing export trade; advancing the natural resource strengths : and, maintaining sound fiscal management says Wall. The Saskatchewan Plan for Growth also sets a goal of reducing the debt by another $400 million by 2017. “The most lasting legacy we can leave our children and grandchildren is a debtfree province,” Wall says. “Once that is achieved, we need to look ahead to ensure that our resource revenues continue to benefit future generations... “I think Saskatchewan people appreciate growth because we have seen the benefits of growth, and we have also seen the alternative... Growth is more than just a path to economic progress. It is the path to building the kind of province we desire for all Saskatchewan people.” And it’s a good path to be on we just need to make sure some residents don’t fall to the wayside as the growth surge continues.
Hey handsome, btw my house is burning Now wouldn’t THAT just open the door to a whole new host of problems? I know people (including myself) enjoy their Facebook and the like but there’s a time and a place for it and this just isn’t one of them. A new Ipsos-Reid poll suggests more than a third of surveyed Canadians (who responded to the survey) believe their calls for help (like one would normally use 911 for) could be adequately looked after via a social media outlet like Facebook, Twitter or email. If we thought there was a potential for lawsuits before for ambulances, police or firefighters not showing up in a prompt fashion, let’s give this a whirl. Wow. There’s a place for social media in a lot of areas of life – but these areas should all be of a non-urgent matter. Ask a doctor a question online, a mechanic, your hairstylist... get help picking out cupboard doors but for gosh sakes – should you be sitting on Facebook hoping a firefighter is online while your house burns down around you? What are some people thinking? The poll, of about 1,000 Canadians, found that 35 per cent believe first responders like police and firefighters should be accessible for emergency calls via
social media. Of this group, 74 per cent say they would expect help within an hour. Seriously? So here we would have an officer or a firefighter – who might otherwise be busy helping someone or carrying out preventative in some way, Shannon Deveau measures shape or form – sitting on Facebook waiting to chat with whoever comes along. Do you know how many lonely people there are out there who just love to get a firefighter or police officer online and at their beck and call? Think about it. Can you say abuse of a service? And let’s face it, while some first responders would be diligent and strictly monitor online pleas for help in the way they should, people are people and the potential to sit back and chat instead of working would no doubt come into play more often than not. We’re all human after all. Toronto police say they do indeed use social media for some non-emergency situations and why not? But they also say 911 is not the time for that and I agree. Save your Facebook for your friends and family, pick up your phone if you have an emergency. If you need help in a hurry nothing beats in person or the good ‘ole telephone.
The way I see it... Column
Hallowe’en, the one holiday I just plain don’t like Since it’s mid-October, North America as a whole has begun to get ready for Hallowe’en, with crates of candy arriving at stores and decorations popping up all over the place. It’s a time where people get ready to get spooky, breaking out costumes and remembering where they put all those scary movies from last year. At the same time, I start trying to figure out how to get out of it, and hide out until November starts. Everyone in my house hates Hallowe’en, though that only counts me and the cat, who finds it greatly upsetting that kids keep showing up at the door demanding candy. I haven’t successfully been able to get out of it so far, and kids have received candy at my door for a couple years already. While I participate, it is only begrudgingly, because that’s what you do. I’ve always hated the holiday, as far back as I remember. I never liked getting dressed up, the only costume that I can remember actually liking was being a television, because it was basically a big hat and easily removed. Otherwise, I was one of those annoying kids who really didn’t want to wear a costume, and only did so because that is what you do, which sort of defines my Hallowe’en participation to this day. So why didn’t I like it? Well, I have lived in
Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger Saskatchewan all my life, which provides a clue. Basically, on Hallowe’en, it was cold, generally snowing. I already didn’t like dressing up in costume, and then you had to bundle up and cover it anyway, rendering it completely pointless. Travelling around the town with friends demanding candy wasn’t bad, but I still would rather have been home, where we had heat. Of course, there were reasons to hate Hallowe’en that had nothing to do with reality, but the overactive imagination of a little kid which got into the spirit of the holiday. For a couple years, at least, somewhere before I turned ten and got slightly more
sensible, I was petrified of vampires, creatures who I was convinced only showed up on Hallowe’en and yet would make a trip to a farm to snack on small children. I also decided that so long as I was completely covered by blankets, said creatures would be convinced I wasn’t there, because apparently vampires have terrible vision. I suppose that’s because optometrists generally are not open in the evenings, thus ignoring the entire vampire market. So, if one doesn’t like being scared, being cold, or getting dressed up, what does Hallowe’en have to offer? Not much, to be honest. At least in the younger days there was candy, sometimes candy I wouldn’t get otherwise. Sometimes there was a good reason for that, since there was that weird white toffee stuff that is only sold at Hallowe’en and nobody likes. Still, candy was great as a little kid, the holiday’s only redeeming feature. But now I’m an adult, and I can get candy whenever I want. Instead, I’m the one who has to give it away, which means that the only thing I ever liked about Hallowe’en has gone away completely. I mean, sure, I’ve grown out of that irrational fear of vampires, but at least when I woke up on November 1 I had a bounty of riches to consume, while now all of my candy is gone. So Hallowe’en is just a bust.

Your letter of the Week
Help to build the austerity gap
Selective abortions – defend life
To the Editor:
All over the world, governments – including Canada’s – are wrestling with their finances. Austerity is the order of the day. Notwithstanding the fact that there’s a lot that needs doing most of it is getting pushed off into the future yet again, with a nod and a wink, and a hope and a prayer that nothing goes wrong. In the United States, we’re seeing roads ripped up and returned to gravel, as in Michigan, in order to avoid maintaining them, and state routes closed altogether, as in New York, to avoid having to find the money to repair a bridge. Canada’s greater geography and lesser population means that if its provinces went down that road we could end up isolating whole regions. But, no matter how broke our governments are, we’ll have to do something. But while policy makers try to figure out the big picture, we have our own individual concerns. What can individuals, or managers in companies, do? The less we need broad infrastructure to handle our needs, the better. Think about the WalMart food distribution centre for Western Canada that was built in Calgary. It’s a brilliant piece of green engineering (the building is essentially a giant refrigerator/ freezer). Wal-Mart deserves to be complimented for what it’s done. The fork lifts run on hydrogen, which they buy from Québec and ship across the country – because even with the truck transportation over thousands of kilometres there’s less carbon emissions than if they bought local, Alberta-made hydrogen from coal. Good green thinking to achieving a lower carbon load, which depends on the continued health of the road network across five provinces. Unfortunately, three of those provinces are in dire finan-
cial straits, and a fourth, Manitoba, is struggling to make austerity work, although without Québec, Ontario and Alberta’s grief. Now add another decade of “failure to maintain” the road system and there might be no choice but to follow Michigan’s example. So maybe, just maybe, different solutions were needed. Flash across the country to the Beach neighbourhood in Toronto, where the East End Sustainability Network gathers monthly to exchange ideas and try and answer the question “what do we need?”
“Canada’s greater geography and lesser population means that if its provinces went down that road we could end up isolating whole regions. But, no matter how broke our governments are, we’ll have to do something.” “Better public transport” is one answer. But while it is true commute times are horrendous, some of the people in the Network answer the question by asking “Where’s the work?” The reason transport is an issue isn’t because it doesn’t exist: they have street car service and buses to the subway system. Transport is an issue because few of the residents are employed in the community in which they live. Opening the new Beach business centre, with the ability to book a meeting room, or a desk and network connection, may be a way to make the neighbourhood even more enticing for those who now commute to an office space
elsewhere. That’s one project that has been brought to fruition. Another is to copy something done by economic development officers in American towns, and bring people in the neighbourhood together to forge economic links. Could the neighbourhood print shop handle the needs of the other enterprises locally, at a similar price to something printed elsewhere and shipped in? Which ventures are natural partners to share space, and reduce rental risk? Could another project in this neighbourhood – a community solar panel installation on the roof of a public school – be extended to power quiet, clean, light industry in the community rather than locate it kilometers away in an industrial estate? One idea the East End Sustainability Network is looking at now has to do with food. There are small fruit and vegetable stands already in place but there’s been discussion of schools growing gardens as a part of educating students about nature. What if the vegetables from the schools were used to supply one or more of the existing neighbourhood markets? Would that help fund the community’s other community ventures – and feed people, too? Matthew Kellway, the MP Beaches-East York, wants to know from the Network what he should be proposing in Ottawa. That’s good, but in the meantime they’re not waiting. The Network is ensuring their community doesn’t wait for a dribble of money from elsewhere in tough economic times. That, at the end of the day, is a path open to all of us. Wasn’t it what our forefathers did when they built the country, one town at a time? Bruce Stewart, Troy Media Corp.
Explanation of budget cuts is deceitful
To the Editor:
Buried in the Conservatives’ obnoxious Omnibus Bill last spring were 30 pages listing billions of dollars in cuts to federal departments and agencies over the next three years. At the time, Canadians were told they wouldn’t be affected by these cuts. More than 19,000 federal jobs would be eliminated, but only in the so-called “back offices” in Ottawa. Front-line services to Canadians would remain untouched. That was obviously a lie, and the proof is becoming more evident daily. Here in Saskatchewan, for example, immigration and trade offices have closed. National Parks and Historic Sites
are being down-graded. Environmental science has been chopped. Community internet sites have been eliminated. There’s much less emphasis on community crime prevention programs. Federal support for local emergency preparedness and training is gone. Etc., etc., etc. All of this hurts “front line” services. But probably the biggest impacts are in agriculture. The Harper government obviously doesn’t consider the integrity of Canada’s food inspection system a “front line” federal obligation. Their attitude throughout the on-going XL Foods E.coli scandal has been one of indifference and negligence. From coastto-coast, Canadians are calling the federal Agri-
culture Minister incompetent. His only specific response is to confirm a $56-million budget reduction for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, while refusing to let the Auditor-General examine the adequacy of the government’s food safety procedures and funding. But that’s not all. Budget cuts in the Department of Agriculture are eliminating the longstanding federal Community Pastures program which has maintained 2.3 million acres of vital prairie grazing land for small and medium-sized livestock producers. Apparently, these producers are not “front line” Canadians. Similarly, the Indian Head Tree Nursery is being sold off. This vital
centre of agro-forestry expertise and planting stock has been on the “front lines” of prairie soil conservation and land management excellence for 111 years. And now it’s gone. And don’t forget the huge cuts to farm income “safety net” programs which help farmers manage through the inevitable production and market failures which are an inherent part of farming. As Saskatchewan’s provincial Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart pointed out, to undermine these vital “front line” investments in the long-term stability of agriculture is bad policy. But that’s exactly what the feds are doing. Ralph Goodale, MP, Wascana, SK.
It’s an idea but in the end – it’s undemocratic
To the Editor:
Public service unions are not alone in worrying about Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre’s proposal to undo 60 years of Canadian labour law. If Harper backs his plan, it could mean chaos for employers and workers alike. Poilievre wants to change the decades-old rule that workers who are covered by a union contract must pay union dues. This
sensible arrangement is fundamental to a labour relations system that is designed to serve both employers and workers, not to mention the general public. Workers get to decide by free vote whether or not they want to unionize. If the majority say yes and an independent labour relations board approves, the union is certified and must by law represent all the workers fairly. To allow workers to opt-out
of paying the costs of representation, as Poilievre proposes, would be the same as allowing Poilievre’s constituents to opt out of paying taxes because they didn’t vote for him. It’s an idea that might have appeal to some at first blush, but it is nevertheless undemocratic. Morna Ballantyne, Ottawa, ON.
To the Editor: This week in Canada, we celebrated the first International Day of the Girl as appointed by the United Nations and spearheaded by the Canadian government. As a young woman, I can personally testify to the milestones that Canada has attained in women’s rights and I am thankful for a nation that is targeting support for girls and their basic human rights. But in the midst of this, Motion408 put forward earlier this session by MP Mark Warawa from Langley, British Columbia comes to mind. Motion-408 proposes that the House of Commons condemn discrimination against females occurring through sex-selective pregnancy termination. Sex-selection pregnancy termination happens and there are no Canadian laws surrounding pregnancy termination, meaning at any stage, a baby can legally be terminated. Isn’t it ironic that on the same day we celebrate International Day of the Girl, it is permissible for a female baby to be aborted due to nothing more than her gender? I am convinced that the termination of pregnancy in any capacity is wrong but the increasing popularity of sexselection terminations causes us to look inside ourselves and ask whether we believe that baby inside of us, inside of our spouse, inside of our sisters is a human life or not. You cannot fabricate a heartbeat and you cannot fabricate movement even if you have fabricated the facts. Guaranteed, if you were put in a state of emergency or you stood by as someone faced death, you would be inclined to protect life not encourage it to be taken away. The moment we have turned against what is inside of us to satisfy demands, ambition, convenience or culture, we have forgotten who we are. We have forgotten that we were made to defend life, not to kill it. Arguably, it is hypocritical to outlaw sex-selected pregnancy terminations and then watch as young girls outside the womb are living on the streets, abused, exploited or trafficked. We need to make a determination inside of ourselves that life will be protected inside and outside of the womb no matter the cost. Think about the women in your life; your wife, your mom, your sisters, your daughters. Imagine what they look like and hear the sound of their voice in your heart. Now, think about the baby girls in the wombs of women in Canada and ask yourself, “Do I care if they get less opportunity to live than the rest?” Only you know your answer. Ashley Beaudin, Ottawa, ON.

October 24 is the day that has been slated for Yorkton’s municipal election and candidates who have put their names forward for council and mayor – with the exception of one – were on hand last week to publicly introduce themselves and to give residents the opportunity to get to know a little about them first hand. Two individuals are vying for Mayor and ten have put their names forward to represent the city as councillors. Only six will be successful on council with one mayor taking the helm. All vying for positions were present for last Wednesday’s forum – hosted by the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce – except for mayoral candidate Richard Genaille. Speaking before a full room, each candidate had the opportunity for both opening and closing remarks as well as the chance to answer questions posed in writing form the floor. All urge members of the general public to exercise their right to vote and to take the time to ask questions and get informed prior to election day.

October is Autism Awareness Month: events planned October is Autism Awareness Month and because of that fact, the Children’s Therapies Program hopes to increase knowledge of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and the services available to parents and children in the Sunrise Health Region. Autism Spectrum Disorder, also referred to as autism, is a neurological disorder which causes developmental disability. Autism
affects the way the brain functions, resulting in difficulties with communication and social interaction, and unusual patterns of behaviour, activities and interests. International studies now indicate that about one in every 150-160 children has autism. Since 2009, the Sunrise Health Region – Children’s Therapy Program has implemented the Ministry of Health’s Framework
and Action Plan for Autism Spectrum Disorders Services in Saskatchewan. Sunrise Health Region recently enhanced support services to ASD to increase individual family support for children and youth who may be diagnosed or are suspect with an autism spectrum disorder. Services for families include screening for ASD, diagnostic support, individual autism intervention programs,
respite and summer programming. Children’s Therapies Program staff provide education, information, and assistance to families, schools and relevant community service organizations. The ASD parent support group will meet on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Yorkton and District Nursing Home. The Children’s
Therapy Program will also host a come and go information event on Wednesday, October 24, 2012 in the lobby of the Yorkton Regional Health Centre from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. and the pre-school social skills (“Come Sing With Me”) group also begins on October 24, 2012. To register or find out more, call 786-0847, or 786-0188. The Saskatchewan Ministry of Health, in
partnership with University of New Brunswick’s College of Extended Learning, offered additional training to support the workers and consultants who provide services to individuals with autism spectrum disorders. The Sunrise Health Region team graduated the Autism Intervention Training program on September 16, 2012. Visit www.sunrisehealthregion.sk.ca.
RE-ELECT ROSS FISHER TO CITY COUNCIL It has been my pleasure to serve the people of Yorkton as a City Councillor for the last three years. I am seeking re-election to Yorkton City Council and I’m asking for your support in the election on October 24th. Yorkton has grown in the last few years, and that has made it an interesting and challenging time to be on City Council. I believe we need to encourage this growth and investment in our community. We want our children to be able to find work here, and live and raise a family here. At the same time, we want Yorkton to remain a safe place to raise a family. PICTURED ABOVE are Leahette Zerff, Kerry Musey, and Geri Koch – Autism Support Workers with the Children’s Therapy Program. Missing from photo is Eileen Deswiage, ASD Consultant. Submitted photo.
Twenty-five year water plan Con’t from Page 1. “Providing a single point of contact with government to address water issues was a message we heard loud and clear through our stakeholder consultations.” “We participated in consultations and are pleased to see the development of the Water Security Plan and creation of the Water Security Agency,” Saskatchewan Association
of Rural Municipalities President David Marit says. “Our Board believes management of water and water-related issues should be in one agency and expects that the proposed structure will improve service.” The Water Security Agency will report annually on implementation of the Water Security Plan. To find out more about the 25 Year Water Security Plan and the Water Security Agency, visit www.wsask.ca.
Yorkton will continue to grow and that means your city council will have to deal with the issues of today, but also plan for the future. This council has been attentive to planning for the future. We have purchased land to be able to properly plan for future housing and business development. Planning is important; development will happen and it is better to plan that growth than it is to just let it happen. Council over the last three years has been diligent in addressing infrastructure and housing issues. We have tried to develop an environment that makes us an attractive community for investment. At the same time, we have kept tax increases the lowest of all cities in Saskatchewan over the last three years. Many of you know me as much from my work as the Executive Director of The Health Foundation as from my work on City Council. The work I do with The Health Foundation is about building our community by improving the healthcare services available locally. It is about trying to make our community an even better place to live. I think the work of City Council is also about making Yorkton an even better place to live. I believe I can continue to make a contribution to the City of Yorkton. I am asking for your vote on October 24th. Thank you.

Is social media changing the way our young grieve? The ways people grieve differ from one culture to another. The way we grieve today may be different than the way our forefather dealt with grief. In times of death and tragedy are people reaching out to social media for solace and comfort? Is the social media like Twitter and Face book where we go to find a way to express our grief and find comfort? Within our modern media, we have the ability to read and see pictures about a tragedy or death within hours of the tragedy happening. People are able to post their thoughts, and express their feelings freely in this context. We make connections with complete strangers who have had similar life changing events happen to them.
Grief needs to be expressed and our young people especially are turning to this form of social media for comfort and connection. Blogs, Twitter and Face book have indeed put on a new meaning in how they express their grief. They are searching for information about the death, trying to keep in touch with family and friends and drawing support from each other. This new way of communication has placed information at our fingertips at the click of a keyboard. We see our social media being used to create memorials in memory of someone. We want to keep the memory of our loved ones alive in our hearts. Does it provide for a “Community of Remembrances” and a “Community for Mourning” for us?
FROM MOURNING TO JOY... Column by Margaret Anne Yost It is said that about 90 per cent of our youth use social media as the means to communicate with each other. Face book has something like 400 million active users and for most, they use this media at least one hour per day, and for some they spend much more time on these media sites. Growing up in my generation, we were shielded from some of the harsh realities of life and death. This has indeed changed over the last few years. Parents
and families no longer have the opportunity to choose how they will tell their children about a tragedy or the death of their loved one. Often when something like this does happen in our community the children are the first to hear about it because of the frequent use social medias. In working with children, we see that children are in a tender stage of life. They are still emotionally immature and need to take a break from their grief.
Exposure to this constant media can be too over whelming and does not allow a child to take a break from their grief. When children are compulsively checking their cell phone, sending messages, and conversations are always centered around the loss or tragedy, a child does not get a break from their grief, and this at times can become more than they can handle. Parents need to take an active role in monitoring their children’s activity around social media. Encouraging children to be active outdoors, in sports, and organized activities allows them to focus on other than the grief that is in our midst. Children, like adults often will benefit from professional support in time of loss and tragedy. Often schools will pro-
vide professional supports shortly after a death of a class mate or community tragedy, but parent’s need to remain vigilant for signs that would indicate that their child needs more support in days to come. Comfort comes from knowing that people have made the same journey. And solace comes from understanding how others have learned to sing again ~ Helen Steiner Rice Margaret Anne Yost nursed for 35 years and journeyed with many clients who were dying. I completed two units of Clinical Pastoral Education at the Regina General Hospital. Returning back to school I completed classes from the Red River College in the areas of Gerontology, Bereavement, Death and Dying.
Sudoku Puzzle of the Week 4 6
3 1 5
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 hard. See the solution on Page 9.

Author releases second book: signing slated By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer
Last year, Corinne Jeffery launched the historical fiction trilogy Understanding Ursula with Arriving: 1909 - 1919. The author is now celebrating the launch of the second book in the series, Thriving: 1920 - 1939, with a book tour that includes a visit to Coles in Yorkton on October 23. Jeffery describes the series as a labor of love which she dedicates to her grandparents. It’s the story of a Lutheran-German family that flees Russia and settles near Melville. The new book will see a greater focus on the main family from the book, the Werners, Jeffery says. “You get to know them better, they start having their own children so you get to know them. New characters are constantly being introduced and there is even more intrigue and secrets being introduced in the second book,” she revealed in a recent interview with The News Review. The book has been out for only a month, but Jeffery says that the response from readers has been highly positive, she says, and she says that readers have been contacting her to talk about how much they’ve enjoyed the latest volume. She says that some of the most enjoyable comments have been from people who have identified with the characters and their struggles, and found their own families represented by the fictitious Werners. “I wanted to write a story about us, you and I, the real Canadians. Not the famous and the politicians and the Conrad Blacks, but those of us who are the majority of the populace of this won-
– Yorkton event planned for October 23 derful country.” One of her goals with the series was to tell an immigrant story, and that from conversations with readers she has found that the immigrant experience is still consistent, even at the turn of this century. She notes that a woman from China once told her that her experiences as an immigrant in this century were very similar to that chronicled in the book. The Understanding Ursula series is also tightly connected to this area, with the book taking place locally. She says she believes Saskatchewan is under-used as a setting for fiction, and hopes to see more authors embrace the area and use it to tell intriguing stories. She says that there needs to be more stories about regular Canadians, and that she wanted her trilogy to help fill that gap. “I had two basic beliefs when I was writing my trilogy. One, that Canadians were as intriguing and as interesting as every nation of people, but you can’t find books about us. The second thing is that I believe that everything that happens now, happened then, they just didn’t want to talk about it. They kept secrets, so now I have readers telling me they love having a front row seat because they know all the secrets.” The final entry in the series will be released in October of next year, and Jeffery says she is busy at work on a new book, as well as touring, meeting readers and trying to reach as many people as she can. Jeffery will be at Coles on October 23 to sign books and meet readers.

YRHS opts to ‘pay it forward’ – community kindness By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The Yorkton Regional High School is paying it forward. For this week, students from the high school will be going into the community and doing good deeds, and encouraging people do
the same for the people around them. The initiative is part of the school joining the C2BK Schools program. The name stands for Cool to be Kind, and the initiative is designed to encourage students to become kinder to one another, and pay it for-
ward campaigns are an integral part of the initiative. At the assembly to introduce the event, Rachel Kraynick spoke about how her son Chase embraced the message of pay it forward before his tragic death at six years old. She told stu-
The Preeceville farmer is trained Submitted by Kaare Askildt, former Preeceville area farmer in training. This is the 17th of a series on getting settled in Hazel Dell. Well, the broilers are done for now, and we just ordered another batch to feed up for a couple of months. We are now back to cleaning up our yard after the high winds blew over a bunch of trees. My wife with her Scottish heritage insists on using a handsaw to cut the branches into smaller pieces, instead of using either our gas or the electrical power saws, so it might take a while! Of course our dog Lady will “help” by carrying the cut up branches to the truck, and it is sometimes a bit of a tug-of-war for us to get the branch free from her. Cleaning up the yard also means that we will be taking a few truckloads of equipment and tools, generally called “stuff” to the auction. We don’t have the same amount of storage space in the barn, sheds or in the yard as we used to, so we have decided to be “brutal” when we select the items to be auctioned off. Perhaps I should expand on that a little. I expect my wife to be brutal on cutting back on her “stuff” such as saddles, tacks and the like. Me? I need all my “stuff!” So what if I have ten crescent wrenches the same size, or a dozen Robertson screw drivers, I need them! However, my wife gets up very early in the morning, and there are some sealed boxes ready to go to the auction. They are marked: “HONEY, DON’T EVEN DARE TO PEEK INSIDE!” I have to obey, because as the old saying goes: “You’re only the boss when your wife lets you be!” It is at times like this that I sure miss that huge barn at our old farm, we sure did store a lot of “stuff” in that one. However, that barn is actually being put to good use by the new owners. Abe Neustaeter is a licensed mechanic and has sectioned off part of the barn as
a fully equipped auto repair shop. I’m not sure, but I believe his hourly rates might be something like this: If you watch me: $85.00, If you give me advice: $95.00, If you help or assist me: $105.00, If your friend worked on this problem before: $115.00, If you worked on this problem before: $125.00. During my Farmer in Training period, I amassed a lot of “stuff.” At my age I got a memory like a steel trap, but sometimes it is rusted shut. So instead of going looking for a tool or implement as I couldn’t remember where I had used it last, I went to town and bought another one. Unpacking the boxes of “stuff” from the old farm, we found a lot of duplications. 30 tape measures of various lengths, 23 flat head screw drivers, 16 multi screw drivers, 12 sets of bits for the screw gun, 12 Robertson screw drivers (see above), 18 Phillips screw drivers, seven socket sets including ratchet handles, all imperial, 13 vise grips, six imperial wrench sets all the same sizes, eight metric wrench sets, and the list goes on. But you know even now if I need a certain size wrench, I can never find it! I think our resident “Nisse” is playing tricks on us! We found so many outdoor extension cords that I’m sure we could reach Okla if we plugged them all together. Thinking of Abe and his garage made me compare my old and aging body to that of a car. The exterior has a few bumps, dents and scratches, but that’s not all. My headlights are out of focus. My traction is not as good as it used to be, and I need an alignment. All moveable parts need lubrication. The front end is a little heavy, and the bumpers are too soft. It takes a long time to get out of low gear and reach my cruising speed, and my fuel burns inefficiently requiring frequent top ups. The brakes are gone and the rear end is a little loose. But the worst is that every time I sneeze or cough, my exhaust backfires!

dents how he tried to help people as much as he could at his young age, from doing extra chores around the farm to helping other people they knew in the area. She says that the initiative is something that is very dear to the family and that is the the way they are remembering their son, includ-
ing their campaign to raise funds and get Aviva support for the Chase Kraynick Memorial Spray Park in Canora. Students at YRHS were given a variety of potential activities which they could do in the community, including cleaning graffiti, giving toys to charity,
and doing chores for people in their neighborhood who might otherwise be unable to do them, whether because of a lack of time or physical ability. The entire school is participating from staff to students, and also encourages others in the community to participate as well.

Saluting Survivors Encouraging Awareness Remembering Loved Ones
91 Broadway St. E. Yorkton, SK
During National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we stand together in our support for a cure and our support for the women who are faced with the disease. By encouraging breast cancer research and raising awareness of the importance of early detection, we can all help save lives. It is estimated that nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and that more than 40,000 of these women will die. Breast cancer is a threat to women of all ages, races and walks of life. Even men are at risk for breast cancer, with approximately 1,700 men diagnosed each year. These numbers remind us why it is so important to know the signs, symptoms and risk factors of breast cancer. Early detection of breast cancer is the best weapon against the disease, which means breast self-exams should be performed regularly, with clinical breast exams every one to three years. By the age of 40, women should begin getting mammograms every one to two years. In addition, healthy lifestyle habits like physical activity, not smoking, minimizing alcohol intake and consuming plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables can help women reduce their risk factors.

HIGHWAY 10 RIVARLY action heated up for the first time in the SJHL season over the weekend as the Mils and the Terriers split home shootout wins, keeping both teams atop the Sherwood Conference standings.
Terriers split weekend games with Mils
By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
If this weekend was any indication of how the Highway 10 rivalry is going to play out this year, than Parkland area hockey fans are in for a treat. Two intense, dead even hockey games saw the Terriers and the Mills both earn 4-3 shootout wins at home, splitting points and keeping both teams atop the Sherwood Conference standings. Friday’s game at the FAA saw the Terriers go down 3-2 after two quick goals in the second period, erasing a first period that saw the Terriers dominate and dictate play throughout. Brenden Poncelet and Brady Norrish goals in the first period were the highlights of a first period that saw an inspired Terriers effort. After continuing to put Melville on the ropes in the beginning of the second and a near miss on a Dylan Johnson shot that hit the post, Melville came roaring back with two goals that flipped the momentum of the game. Kale Thomson bounced back in net after the two quick goals and held ground for a second and third period that saw the Terriers struggle control the puck, causing the FAA crowd to get restless.

in the game in addition to shutting the door in the shootout. The game was the typical intense affair and saw the Terriers refuse to back down from any after the whistle play in their home rink. Saturday night saw the Terriers make another comeback against Melville, this time from 3-1 down after the first period to earn a point in a shootout loss. Tyler Giebel scored another key goal in the second period on the powerplay before Patrick Martens played the hero role with a game tying goal fourteen minutes into the third period. A shootout win was not in the cards for the Terriers on Saturday night as two straight Mils goals and two straight saves from Millionaires goalie Alex Wakaluk sent the Terriers home with one point salvaged. Tuesday night saw the Terriers play yet another SJHL early season contender as the undefeated Flin Flon Bombers came into town in a North vs. Sherwood Conference battle. The Terriers once again proved that they are arguably the best team in the SJHL at the moment with a convincing 4-2 win over the Bombers, who were 8-0 coming into Tuesday’s game. Zak Majkowski and Tayler Thompson led the charge for the Terriers on Tuesday with Majkowski scoring two goals and Thompson distributing the puck with three assists on the night. The Terrier powerplay also con-
tinued to roll with a Daylan Gatzke powerplay goal that gave the Terriers powerplay four powerplay goals in the last three games. The win put the Terriers in first place in the Sherwood Conference standings with a game at hand over the Millionaires. A huge part of the Terriers hot start has been their solid defensive pairings and goaltending, holding opponents to just eighteen goals in nine games. That defense is only looking to get better with WHL player Austin Bourhis joining the lineup and the potential of Yorkton product and Vancouver Giants defenseman John Neibrandt coming back to Yorkton in the coming days. Tayler Thompson has been happy with the teams start and noted that the additions of two more defensemen will only add to the strength of their defensive core. Thompson was also happy with his teammates play over the weekend saying, “Obviously Melville knocked us out last year and it was a tough pill to swallow, and we have made some adjustments from last year and added some new guys and really wanted to show that we aren’t the same team as last year.” The Terriers still have games at hand over the Millionaires after playing a slightly less busy schedule, making the next two weeks crucial as the Terriers see an increase in action. Thursday night sees the Terriers go on the road to Melfort
before hosting the La Ronge Ice Wolves on Saturday night as part of La Ronge’s Sherwood Conference road trip. The Terriers then travel to Kindersley and Battlefords next week for a Tuesday/Wednesday road trip before coming home to host Nipawin and Estevan in what will be the last of Terrier home action before they embark on a three week long road trip. Thompson mentioned the importance in the next two weeks saying, “We obviously have those two games at hand over Melville and we would like to continue to get some more wins and overtake them in the standings.” This Terriers squad has shown improvement over the team that suffered an early exit in last year’s playoffs, but the next month is going to be a critical part of their season as they face the daunting task of going nearly a month without a home game. With three FAA dates left in October the Terriers will be looking to secure maximum points before they head up north on their three week road trip to kick off November. A solid weekend has the Terriers in first place nearly ten games into their 2012/13 season and at this point we can safely assume that this Terriers squad is going to be a real contender going forward that is not going to go down easily on any night of the schedule.

Raiders rout sets up semifinal rematch with Central By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
It has been a season of firsts for the YRHS Raiders football program in its inaugural season in the Moose Jaw High School Football League. From their first win in their new league, to their first home win, to their 5-1 record and their first home playoff game since 1994, the Raiders have been having one of those special seasons from Opening Day. Century Field’s first home playoff game in 18 years was all YRHS as after a blowout win over Estevan on Tuesday set up a rematch between the two teams in the 2/7 quarterfinal matchup of the playoffs, the Raiders ran all over the Elecs 69-6. David Balysky started off the game with a interception for a touchdown and set up two more punch in scores for quarterback Dalton Fichtner with big plays in the first half. The Raiders scored over twenty points in the final two minutes of the second quarter to close the door on the game before the halfway point. Ryan Krochak joined the scoring party in a big way with three receiving touchdowns on the day in a game that saw ten Raider touchdowns. Despite the big win, after the game focus was immediately on the Raiders next opponent, Moose Jaw Central, the team that handed the Raiders their only loss of the season on Friday Night Lights night and winners of their quarterfinal matchup over Moose Jaw Vanier. Coach Sharpe echoed the focus on the semifinal matchup in his post game speech as well as instantly in his post game comments saying, “Despite this huge win, we aren’t going to let the bad habits you can pick up running over an opponent come into play next week, because we won’t get away with it.” Central has had a rough stretch of play in their last three games. The Cyclones needed a last second rouge attempt to beat Moose Jaw Vanier in the second last week of the season before falling victim to rivals Moose Jaw Peacock 28-14 in the final game of the regular season to lose their number one seed and their bye and home field advantage in the playoffs. Vanier once again gave Central a good run in the quarterfinal game, losing by just six points and with both the Raiders and Central having identical 5-1 regular season records this tilt will be featuring two teams who both are looking at this game as a stepping stone to a provincial championship appearance. Coach Sharpe points out that although the Raiders lost to Central at home already this season, that the loss was one of poor discipline, with the Raiders committing five turnovers and having penalty issues that allowed Central to have easy field position on a majority of their scoring drives. The Raider offense had 391 yards in that Friday night matchup during the regular season to Central’s 215 which has the Raiders feeling confident that if they can erase the mistakes they made in their loss that they will be able to avenge their only regular season and home defeat of the year.
A big part of the Raiders chances of advancing are sons to some of the great Raider teams. “We have had hinging on the ankle of Zack Kais, the Raiders running some pretty good teams in the past, making the city back was on pace to be the league’s leading rusher be- championship in Regina one year, and playing 5A in fore an ankle injury in the second half of the Raiders the Regina league and beating some of the province’s game against Swift Current put him out of the last two biggest and best schools, but this team has some guys games against Estevan and his status was once again that are right up there with some of the special players doubtful on Saturday according to Coach Sharpe. we have had in the past and has the potential to match One more week of rest and healing gives Kais great the successes of those teams,” said Sharpe. odds of being able to return on Saturday, but the RaidMoose Jaw Peacock will likely be awaiting the winers still possess a new offensive threat in Tyson Haas ner of the Central-Raider game as they host Weyburn who has added another element of power running to the in the other semifinal, but you can expect the Raiders Raider attack, and speed back David Balysky who has staff pulling for their former Regina league members in had a 200 yard performance this season and was fea- Weyburn as an upset from them would move the city turing in a two back shotgun set alongside quarterback championship from Moose Jaw to Century Field.

Fichtner keeps the Raiders alive with his legs and has the knack for taking long 2nd and 10 plays into first downs as well as possessing an arm that can find big play receivers in Hull and Krochak for big touchdowns. Forbes was the villain in the Friday night game and has similar attributes in what is a great quarterback matchup.

Jr. Raider Gridders advance By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer After a four game winning streak saw the YRHS Jr. Raiders lock up a middle seed in the Regina Minor Football Bantam Playoffs, the Raiders continued their hot streak to the tune of a 32-24 victory on Monday night in Regina. With all RMF and RIFL playoff games having mandatory location dates in the city, the Raiders knew they would have to deal with the road disadvantage and silenced a raucous Renegades crowd in what was a entertaining contest. Going into the quarterfinal the Raiders knew they were going to be in for a tough matchup as the Renegades were the final team to beat the Raiders in their 0-4 start to the season in a game that saw the Raiders come out flat at Century Field before falling short on a game winning drive in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. The trap of the slow start was not a problem for the Raiders as they struck first and led for the majority of the ballgame despite the Renegades threatening to take the lead for most of the second half. The game’s turning point came when Alex Popoff of the Raiders fumbled the football at midfield with the Renegades being down by just four early in the third quarter. After the defense backed him up and got the ball back, Popoff answered right back with a receiving touchdown on the first play of the drive on a long catch and run effort. Popoff credited coach Jason Payne for helping him calm his nerves, saying, “I was rattled because I thought I made a play that could of cost my team the game and Coach (Payne) tried to calm down my nerves and I wanted to go out there and make up for my mistake and I just got the ball and made the play.” Popoff was praised by head coach Mike Jarvis for his hard running and receiving skills in the win. Popoff moved the chains in ever variety throughout the game, with screen play catch and runs, handoffs on the outside corner, and big catches down the field in what was a clutch performance on offense. Popoff credited his offensive line for giving him the opportunities to make the plays as the much bigger and physical Raider offensive line gave the Raider running tandem of Brayden Jarvis and Popoff the chance to pound the ball on both the inside and the edges of the tackles throughout the game. Coach Jarvis was happy with what was the team’s first ever RMF playoff victory, but knows the team will have to be better to work towards a championship, pointing out that some procedure and holding penalties as well as some turnovers allowed the Renegades to get back into the game. Jarvis says, “I am extremely proud of our guys, and it is a big moment for our program to win our first playoff game since joining the 12 man RMF, but after tonight it is time to focus on the Mounties for Sunday’s semifinal.”
The Mounties, like the Renegades have also earned a early season victory over the Raiders, winning by a single point punt through the endzone in what was a low scoring 7-6 affair. The Raiders offensive attack is much more potent than in that Week Three loss and given the momentum the Raiders are riding with their five game win streak a win and a berth to the championship game is definitely in the cards. Defense will once again be a key for the Raiders as the Raider defense that held the Renegade offense from taking the lead on numerous occasions will once again need to dig deep and give the Raider offense the opportunity to score while in good field position. Lukas Muir had an interception on the final play of the game, while playing out of position at safety as the Raiders went to a Cover Two formation during the fourth quarter to add an extra player in pass coverage. The Raider linebackers and defensive line did an outstanding job of controlling the line of scrimmage coming up with several sacks and forcing the Renegades into the air, where they saw success after having their ground game stymied. The Raiders quarterback tandem led by starter Nick Payne did a much better job of avoiding interceptions than in the loss to the Renegades, connecting on several long plays. A loud and intense Renegades crowd often drowned out the group of parents and students that came up on the weekday night to cheer on their Raiders, something that Coach Jarvis thinks will be different on Sunday afternoon. “Given that our next game is on a Sunday afternoon I expect that we will see more parents and fans come up and make the trip to give us some added support and noise in the semifinal,” says Jarvis. Jarvis also wanted to give his hats off to the younger Raider players who didn’t get into the game for being good teammates and cheering and supporting their players from the bench despite the obvious disappointment of not getting much game action. Lumsden helped out the Raiders last night by coming up with a win in the first game of the late night doubleheader over third seed Balgonie, allowing the Gridders to avoid the undefeated powerhouse in the Regina Raiders in the semifinal. The Raider Gridders now have a great opportunity to advance in the playoffs against a team that they came close to beating earlier in the season and carry on the momentum they have been riding ever since their turnaround at the midway point of the year. History was made on Monday night in Regina as the growth of a program that planned to face tougher competition at the junior level was finally realized with the first taste of postseason success as a 12 man program. Work will need to be done over the week as they head into yet another quest for a Yorkton football first. A championship game berth.
YRHS JR RAIDERS huddle before their quarterfinal win over the Renegades. The Raiders move onto the semifinals where they will play the Mounties on Sunday.
Harvest drop two at home By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
The Yorkton Harvest continued their slow start to the season with two losses at home to the Saskatoon Blazers over the weekend at the Farrell Agencies Arena. Saturday night saw the Harvest take a close 4-2 defeat in the first leg of their Saturday/Sunday homestand with the Blazers. Sunday, provided a different story as the Harvest could not find the back of the net in a 5-0 defeat in afternoon action. The Harvest kept the game close for the majority of the game before seeing the wheels fall off as the Blazers scored three goals in the final half of the game to take the four points on the weekend and see the Harvest fall further down the SMAAAHL standings. Despite the 5-0 loss the Harvest put 40 shots on goal in the loss Sunday, forcing Blazers goalie Evan Weninger into a busy night in what was a 40 save shutout performance. Harvest goalie Carson Bodgan made 31 saves in the loss in what would be solid performance most nights. The Harvest will now look to turn things around on a road trip as they head out on the road for the next month until they host Beardy’s Blackhawks on November 17/18. Road wins are going to pivotal if the Harvest want to climb out of the league cellar after their 1-5 start. Only the winless Blackhawks and Notre Dame Argos sit behind them in the standings. A win over Tisdale on Saturday night would be a big step in turning around what has so far been a dismal start to the Harvest season.
YORKTON HARVEST HOCKEY action was on display over the weekend as the Harvest hosted the Saskatoon Blazers on Saturday and Sunday at the FAA.

The identity crisis of Canadian mens soccer
On Tuesday afternoon in Honduras Canada’s Mens National Soccer Team played what was the most important game of its modern history. With a spot in the third and final round of qualifying also known as “The Hex” or “Hexagonal Qualifying Round” on the line, Canada was playing what was hyped as a pivotal match in growing the sport. Some of you will know what happened by the time you read this on Thursday, but Canada didn’t just lose a game it needed to draw to advance, it absolutely embarrassed and set back Canada’s soccer program with an 8-1 drubbing that is a hard pill to swallow for many CMNT supporters. For a team that has built its identity all campaign long on it’s backline and hard defensive midfield play, to get trounced in such a fashion is appalling and brings forth the question once again if Canada will ever even come close to qualifying for a World Cup if every four years when the qualifying stage comes around Canada loses out before
the real big qualifying games even begin, how is this program realistically going to grow. Going into the game I had the bad feeling that Canada was set for a downfall, the typical signs were all there. Central American environment with a national holiday mid-afternoon start time to mess with the Canadians fatigue? Check. Dubious red card given to key Canadian player in the previous game? Check. Mention of every single damn eligible player that would rather weigh out their options with other countries before committing to Canada. Double check. It was the same old story for Canada, with just a few more eyeballs and some petty feel good pats on the backs from national media outlets for “embracing the world’s game” with third page write ups in their sports sections going into the game that follow the same Canada soccer narrative. How this game is “the biggest game in Canadian soccer history” and how if they advance their EPL starlets Jonathan
SHHS draws team silver at x-country provincials By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
Sacred Heart High School finished off its 2012 cross country season with a second place team finish at provincials. Boosted by four top 20 performances from their runners the Saints finished second out of a large field and nearly came out as the top school trailing 5A school Aden Bowman from Saskatoon by just four points. The achievement is impressive from a school the size of Sacred Heart, who were competing against schools nearly triple their size. The scoring for the event took the scores of the top four runners of each school and say Sacred finishing with a score of 55 just narrowly trailing Aden Bowman’s score of 59. Notable finishes were Justine Zarowny who placed 6th in Midget Girls, Rita Fetsch who placed 11th in Senior Girls, Elias Giannoulis who placed 18th in Senior Boys and Petro Vivchar who placed 20th in Junior Boys. Coach Rachel Sterzuk was extremely pleased with the team silver medal as well as the strong racing of each individual athlete. The Saints long distance runners will now await the beginning of the outdoor track season in the spring or run for the local track club during the indoor track season.
Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig De Guzman and Junior Hoilett will give up their dreams of playing for the Dutch/England and begrudgingly attempt to use Canada to get into the World Cup. Here is where the identity crisis comes in. We should be past this point already as a soccer nation, but we aren’t. For every person like me who will watch and live or die with every minute of Canadian soccer, there are tem frontrunners who only watches the World Cup and anything involving Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Imagine if there was a Canadian born hockey player who wanted to wait until Canada had the best possible chance of winning the World Juniors or the Olympics to join the run halfway, would there be any chance in hell the media or the fans would let that slide? No, that player

the clout of a Germany, but the game has been growing to the point that soccer is now North America’s second most popular sport behind football. The game has always been a popular minor sport, but now it is up to the CSA to wake up and realize that it isn’t a US or a Mexico or even a Honduras or Panama and that if it is going to get anywhere close to qualifying for World Cup 2018 changes will need to be made. For the better part of one year, CMNT was on the verge of miraculously and I will even admit luckily growing the game. A softer group than usual that saw Mexico and the US being avoided gave Canada a golden opportunity to build the game and make the CMNT a draw in the way that the EPL, the World Cup, and Barcelona and Real Madrid have became household sporting figures in this country by giving soccer a big event feel that all fans crave. They wasted that chance and the small progress they made, now is the time to go back to the drawing board and erase the status quo. Canadian soccer needs an identity and the one it has right now certainly is never going to amount to success.

would get laughed at and shamed to the point they would never want to step foot into the country again. At some point the Canadian Soccer Association needs to wake up and realize the way they have been doing things is never going to work. They need to develop some pride and finally say to all the players that tease the newspapers and media outlets with the hope that they will play, to decide or you will never play in a Canadian kit ever. They need to realize that playing World Cup Qualifiers in a half filled BMO Field that is largely filled with immigrants from the opposing team is unacceptable when BC Place packs in a loud 28, 000 plus for anything soccer. It is time to give the players toiling on the U-21, U-19, and U-17
their caps as well. The old guard is largely done, and as we saw Tuesday afternoon, is largely misunderstood of what it means to play for your country. Whether it is a lack of ability, heart, or interest players like Julian De Guzman leaking stories that make it all about his brother then missing an opportunity to tie the game at oneone early is simply no longer needed. If Canada is a mid to bottom tier CONCACAF nation, taking the same core group of players every year to major games and tournaments is just going to produce the same results. Germany, albeit a footballing powerhouse with much more infrastructure, found itself in a position where the old guard was letting them down and providing unacceptable finishes at major tournaments and in qualifying. What did they do? They implemented the same system throughout every level of the national program, gave young players their shot at the mens level, kept the veterans who were producing and providing constructive leadership and are now back as the number two team in the world behind Spain.

Residents of Yorkton have ha e seen fi fitt to elect me to city council co for the past 9 years, and now I am seeking the office of mayor of the city of Yorkton. With the support of my wife Dianne and our three children I am prepared to take on a new challenge. As a lifelong resident of the community I see a bright future ahead of us. The job market is good and many young people are returning from afar to enjoy the â€œboomâ€? that Saskatchewan is enjoying. It is truly a great time to be living in Yorkton. As a city council we have spent a great deal of time planning for the future. Two recent annexations have given the city sufficient land to plan for future growth and make sure that we donâ€™t stall that growth by not being prepared. It has been an arduous process, but at the end of the day it was worth it. Business has shown a great deal of confidence in our community and we must make sure our infrastructure will keep up with ongoing demands. While paying for necessary development council has kept a close eye on tax hikes and has managed to keep our increases among the lowest in the province while providing for extra police protection, safe drinking water and recreational opportunities for young and old. It is always a balancing act of what we want and what taxpayers can afford. The challenge facing our city is how to hang on to our small town values while evolving into the business and economic hub that Yorkton has already become. Our growth is assured, we will have more jobs for our children and more facilities for our ageing parents. There has never been a more exciting time to be in our city and I would be very proud to be elected mayor of this community we all enjoy.

If I am elected I will be about the people, I will be for the people, I will be the Voice of the Voiceless, I will be the Voice of the people. I will not change the taxes because I believe James Wilson had a good idea when he did it and I agree with him. I plan to open a bigger and better theatre so when movies come out Yorkton gets more then 1 movie. I want to inspire the youth and kids to stay in school, so 1 day they can achieve greatness and become bright minds, the younger generation is the future of Yorkton. I hope to inspire the Younger Generation to stand up and believe what they know is right. The Richard Campaign is about and For the People.

If I am elected I plan to open safer hangout spots for the kids and youth. I plan to make more affordable housing that any family could afford, I know itâ€™s going to be difficult knowing that I am a rookie and inexperienced, but change is a good thing. If I am elected my first priority is to focus on all roads and sidewalks that are damaged. I plan to take out the bike lanes because they are not safe.

“Canada’s prosperity depends on small and medium-sized businesses and the entrepreneurs who own them. Indeed, 98 per cent of all Canadian businesses have less than 100 employees. Every fall, we celebrate entrepreneurs and their invaluable contribution to our country during Small Business Week, taking place this year from October 14 to 20. Across the country, there will be hundreds of events where entrepreneurs – and prospective entrepreneurs – will have the chance to learn, network and exchange ideas. We know how demanding it can be to build, maintain and grow a strong, business. Competitive pressure is fierce and to succeed, entrepreneurs have to be willing to take risks, continually
improve their management skills and seek out resources to make strategic investments. Practical information and advice are essential to successfully tackle their projects. One way that entrepreneurs can position their businesses for sustained growth is by investing in more technology. By harnessing the latest information and communications technology, they can make better decisions, reach more customers and ultimately build bigger, more productive, more profitable businesses. Small Business Week is an ideal time to benefit from interaction with others to renew your enthusiasm for your own business or to embark on a new project. I encourage you to attend an event in your area so you can talk to other entrepreneurs, learn and get inspired. As always, BDC is here to help because when entrepreneurs succeed, Canada succeeds.”
“Small Business Week is an opportunity to reflect on the challenges Canadian entrepreneurs must face and how we can support them.” – Jean-Rene Halde, BDC President & CEO

Yorkton has what it takes to compete on a global scale Celebrating local success: Ram, Business of the Year By SHANNON DEVEAU N-R Writer
industry. We provide solutions for companies across North America but the honor tonight is that we’re being recognized amongst so many other businesses in our community who are also leaders.... it’s special to be recognized like this...” Few paths in life can be walked without challenges and for Ram Industries it’s been no different. “I think our business challenges are no different than anyone else’s,” adds Turta. “We always want to be growing, we want to be market leaders, we want to expand products and into new areas... with that has to the ability to change and the ability to overcome obstacles. You have to learn to take advantage of opportunities. We’re like all the other entrepreneurs out there in Yorkton, trying to grow our business.” Doing that means taking an interest in your community and getting involved as is Ram. “We’re involved with the Chamber of Commerce. We work with the Rotary Club, we’re involved with The Health Foundation... we take part with community events in our area... many of our employees also drive in from surrounding areas so we’re cognizant of how our company services the entire economic area.” Taking home the Business of the year Award is like icing on the cake. “It’s been a fantastic year. We’ve just gone through a business expansion... it’s just been terrific.”
They’ve been successfully operating in Yorkton for many years and at a recent Yorkton Chamber of Commerce Celebrate Success event they were officially recognized for standing out in the community, taking home the anticipated “Business of the Year Award.” Ram Industries Inc. was established in Yorkton in early 1973 and it has grown over the years into the success story it is today. Last Wednesday it was formally recognized for its commitment, dedication and contributions. The organization initially focused on the production of welded cylinders to serve the agricultural equipment industry, but has grown and adapted to meet the demands of expanded markets and cylinder designs. Since its inception, the RAM facility has expanded five times to increase its capacity and capabilities to its current size of 60,000 sq/ft. where head office and manufacturing continue at the Yorkton location. RAM continues to expand its capabilities and expertise in meeting the needs of its customer base. In December 2000, Ram Industries Inc. achieved ISO 9001 Certification for both “Hydraulic Cylinder Manufacturing” and “Custom Precision Machining” and it’s this dedication that has helped the organization develop long term customer relationships serving a variety of industries and applications. Giving thanks to the vision of the company’s founders – Ray and Leone Malinowski – and to it’s many dedicated employees, Ram’s President Linda Turta says there is much more to Ram than just building hydraulic cylinders “One of the things that people think we do is we build hydraulic cylinders, but actually what we do, is we sell our capabilities and our capabilities include the ability to use our resources... and most importantly it’s about our employees. Our employees work directly with customers to determine what their needs are... and we make it happen. Without high quality employees, we have no capabilities.” Success says Turta is about having energy, passion, dedication and never taking things for granted. “We’re very humbled to be recognized in this category and this award is very special to us. We have a very strong workforce and we’re very proud to be a leader in our Linda Turta, Preseident/CEO Ram Industries

Yorkton’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR – Among the recipients of awards at the 2012 Yorkton Chamber of Commerce event held recently in the city was Justin Yawney, owner of Yorkton Plumbing & Heating. Yawney took home the Young Entrepreneur award, presented to a young entrepreneur (age 35 or under), who has established or expanded a business. The young entrepreneur will have achieved success in the start-up or operation of a new or existing business and will have long term goals and the strategies to achieve the goals. Yawney started Yorkton Plumbing & Heating in 2007 and in the past four years has grown the company from a staff of one to twenty-five, expanding his fleet of one vehicle to fifteen. Originally from Yorkton, Yawney moved to Alberta but found that coming home was the best move he could make. His roots, family, and friends are in the Yorkton community and gave him support and encouragement to expand his business. Not only does Yorkton Plumbing & Heating provide service to the residential community, but it has expanded in the commercial and industrial field, which he says has proved to be very rewarding. Yawney is pictured above (right) hamming it up with his award with Jonas Haywood, (former) Area Manager, TD Canada Trust, award sponsor.

grow with the times
– best property restoration By SHANNON DEVEAU N-R Writer The journey hasn’t been easy and it’s come with it’s fair share of challenges, but they’re living life on their terms and they’re finding success as they make their way. Ray Sharp and Nadine Jennett were looking for a change and who would have thought a change for them would also mean a new start for a familiar Yorkton sight, near and dear to the hearts of many in the community. In 2006 the pair took over the Yorkton Hotel and this year they accepted the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce’s Celebrate Success Award for Property Restoration. Sponsored by City of Yorkton, the award is presented to a local business that demonstrates exceptional performance in restoring or revitalizing an older existing building or property to be aesthetically pleasing. The Award is designed to encourage businesses to make their place of business more attractive thereby increasing business activity, employee performance, enhancing land values and offering an enticing setting for new businesses planning to locate in Yorkton and area. The Yorkton Hotel has managed to do just that. “It was a huge surprise to us...,” says Sharp, “first to get nominated and again for us to be chosen from among the other entrants... they were all very reputable entries. It was a great feeling. And I guess for us it was nice to have some acknowledgment of the work that we’ve done, knowing that we have a lot more to do. It gives us that extra boost to keep going. People are seeing the difference we’re making...” Born and raised in Saltcoats, Sharp says he left the province for schooling but came back to raise his family and to start a business. From Stockholm, Jen-
nett has called Yorkton home for the past 23 years. When a career in electronics repair looked as though it was becoming obsolete, the two started looking at other options which led them to the Yorkton Hotel. Originally built in 1902 and abandoned for at least five years, it was a prospect from which most would shy away, but for Sharp it was a diamond in the rough he felt couldn’t be passed up. “I had been looking at this building for quite a few years... I love restoring old things and this was definitely a project that needed some TLC. In fact I think it was very near the wrecking ball. Nobody had an interest in taking it on.” Owned by the bank, in 2006 Sharp began the process of negotiations and before he knew it, became the new proud (and possibly a little overwhelmed) owner of a piece of Yorkton history. “It was very dirty, very old, very run down, but I look at things not cosmetically but structurally... I overlooked the peeling paint, broken things... and I realized this is a strong, big, old building that obviously had made over 100 years already...” Sometimes you have to go against the grain to find success. A tad daunting the first time they walked into their new purchase, Sharp says the couple found themselves wondering what they had just done. The first task was to just find the light switches. “The big thing was to take a good look around to see what really needed to be done to get the lights on and to get it to a position of where we could open it up.” Months of work ensued, assessing, cleaning, fixing and overhauling.

Local success story Con’t from Page 6.
there’s a person that walks in here that doesn’t have a story... I’m a sucker for old stuff, a sucker for the historical value of things... so it meant a lot to me to know that this is a big part of history and to know that I had an opportunity to be a part of it. “We’ve spent about five and a half years here now and I’m hoping that our five and a half years will give this place another 110 years... and that we’re just going to be a small part of whatever it will have to offer.” If you’re a would-be entrepreneur and you have dreams of following in the footsteps of Sharp and Jennett don’t give up but do be prepared to work hard and to think a little differently. “You can’t be scared to take on something everyone else is scared of. Everything I’ve accomplished in my life I’ve accomplished by going outside the box. When people say no, there’s not a chance, that makes me drive a little harder... If you’re afraid of change, if you’re afraid of new things, if you’re afraid of doing something you’ve never done before then probably it’s not for you,” says Sharp. “If you’ve got the drive and you’re not scared to take something on that looks overwhelming your chances are good.” Strong support networks don’t hurt an entrepreneur’s chances either. Sharp says he wouldn’t be where he is today without Jennett and he adds, it’s a great feeling that together, they can finally start enjoying the fruits of success.
More than a hotel, the building consists of a restaurant (now serving a full sushi menu), a lounge (Rayzr’s Bar & Pub), rental apartments on the upper floor and business rental spaces on the lower floor. There was much to attend to before the couple could even think of opening any doors. About four months into the project the work began to pay off. “We opened the doors and we were busy right off the bat,” says Sharp. “It exceeded our expectations...” Both single parents working to make ends meet, neither Sharp nor Jennett had any previous experience in the hospitality industry. It was a learning curve in all areas and a challenge they had to meet head on. “It was exciting, overwhelming, crazy and... we learned fast because we had no choice... I can honestly say I’ve become a master fixer of just about anything and everything...” Profits were turned back into the building and since that time the old Yorkton Hotel has undergone many renovations on every level, earning the couple the award they received last week. With every aspect of the hotel now up and running, it’s still a work in progress says Sharp but it’s come a long way and more change can be expected in the coming months. This summer the plan is to restore the outside of the building. “We’ve got a lot more work we want to do in every area... it really never ends. But we never have to worry about what we have to do when we get here in the morning that’s for sure.” Taking on such a monumental project and turning it into a success story can’t help but come with a certain sense of pride. “It was a 100 year plus old building at the time we took it over... the history is amazing... I don’t think Nadine Jennett and Ray Sharp

BDC â€“ Say you have a successful small business. You have a few employees, and things are going fine. If youâ€™re like many entrepreneurs, you may never take time to sit down and think about your future growthâ€”how to take your company to the next level in a smart, disciplined way. But growth is an issue many business owners ignore at their peril. In fact, it might just be one of the most important issues facing them as entrepreneurs. â€œIf you decide not to grow, you may be paving a path to failure,â€? says Patrick Latour, Senior Vice President, Financing and Consulting at the Business Development Bank of Canada. â€œIf you donâ€™t grow, your competitors will, and that will put pressure on you.â€? The good news, Latour says, is that business owners can create a road map to guide them and reduce their risk as they grow their enterprise. The road map can help them find more growth opportunities and avoid common mistakes, like failing to delegate responsibility to employees. You need a plan

To develop your road map, start by committing time to outlining a plan for your growth, Latour says. It should include a few important basics: â€˘ A clear picture of
your businessâ€™s current strengths, weaknesses and opportunities; â€˘ A vision for where you want your company to be in the next three to five years; â€˘ An action plan to achieve your vision (Who will do what and by when). Your growth plan could be anything from a rough, informal sketch to a full-blown, highly detailed strategic plan, including everything from a mission statement to scenario planning and financial forecasts. Whatâ€™s vital is getting the key players in your company on the same page, thinking about your future. â€œIf youâ€™re going to grow, you should absolutely have a plan,â€? says Paul Cubbon, who teaches entrepreneurship and innovation at the University of British Columbiaâ€™s Sauder School of Business. â€œFailing to plan is planning to fail.â€? Latour agrees. â€œThe plan doesnâ€™t have to be pages and pages long. Sometimes the simpler, the better. But if you donâ€™t have a planned, disciplined approach to growth, youâ€™re probably going to make more mistakes.â€? Regaining control Christopher Moreno is a firm believer in creating a growth planâ€” and following it with discipline. His event planning and produc-
tion business, 365 Productions, was growing so quickly in 2011 that he and partner Ben Patience worried it was spinning out of control. â€œWe were concerned about having too many things on the conveyor belt,â€? Moreno says. â€œWe said: Eventually the conveyor belt is going to be full, and something is going to fall off the end.â€? The duo decided to embark on a strategic planning exercise. The process helped clarify their opportunities, risks and respective roles in the company. The result: a detailed five-year plan that included financial forecasts for three different growth scenarios. The plan helped them boost sales to an expected $3.2 million this year from $1.8 million in 2010. They have even exceeded their goals, meeting their year-three targets in 18 months. And the plan has helped guide a successful international expansion into Britain and Australia. Along the way, they made sure to meet regularly with employees to see if the plan needs any tweaking and check how their plan is being implemented by measuring progress against their benchmarks. â€œThe plan is 10 per cent of the work; the other 90 per cent is actually doing it,â€? Moreno says. â€œIf you donâ€™t get in the car and drive, the roadmap is useless.â€? Continued on Page 9.

Why grow? • A majority of entrepreneurs (65 per cent) intend to grow their company over the next year, according to a recent BDC survey. Almost half of them (47 per cent) say their company’s targeted revenue growth for the next 12 months is 10 per cent or more. • Growth rates are a concern because SMEs are essential to job creation in Canada. Historically, rapidlygrowing SMEs, which
• What are the obstacles to growth? Growth can be risky, for one thing. An expanding business may be harder to manage. Finding competent administrators and subject matter experts can be difficult. Financing is not always easy to obtain, either. • Growth can reduce business risk by diversifying a company’s product and client base. One way for entrepreneurs to overcome obstacles is to review financial plans and im-
• Consider expanding regionally or going global. Only eight per cent of Canadian SMEs export their products and/or services. But tapping the global market doesn’t necessarily mean trading overseas. Companies can sell into global supply chains by working with a locallybased multinational. Going global can be as easy as knocking on a neighbour’s door!
The do’s and the dont’s Con’t from Page 8. Three do’s and don’ts for growing a small business You’ve decided you want to expand your small business – but aren’t sure how. Here are some growth do’s and don’ts. • Leverage existing clients – Looking for growth opportunities? Don’t forget your existing clients. They could be your best path to expansion success. It’s usually much easier to find new business from current clients than to start afresh with untested ones. “Listen to existing clients, and see what they need,” says Patrick Latour. “Ask them how you can help them be even better. Can you help them in ways they don’t know about?” Latour also advises growth-oriented entrepreneurs to seek out opportunities to join the supply chains of multinational corporations.

prove business fundamentals. Being competitive and efficient are decisive factors when implementing a successful growth strategy. Stagnation can hinder future prospects.
• Grow smart – Whatever you focus on as a growth opportunity, be sure it’s the right path for you and your business, says Paul Cubbon, who teaches entrepreneurship at the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business. Don’t expand into new business areas just because you can. “People think growth will bring a more profitable situation. But they may grow from one to 20 employees and not make any more money, while working twice as hard,” Cubbon says. “It’s not just about growth. It’s about smart growth.” Be sure new business offers the same margins as you currently enjoy and helps you differentiate yourself from the competition. • Don’t micromanage – Growing companies often wind up in trouble when the entrepreneur has trouble delegating decisions to staff. “Hire good people and trust them,” Latour says. “Let your people work, while you spend more time thinking about your strategic focus and your next move.”

How do you finance growth? – plan before you need the money BDC – Is it time to go shopping for a major purchase for your growing small business? It can be hard not to get swept up in the excitement. Whether it’s a major technology upgrade or shiny new equipment, you probably spent hours shopping around for the best product, comparing consumer reviews and talking with vendors. Then comes the hard part: How to pay for it? Here’s where many entrepreneurs could be doing a better job. Financial planning for an expansion project may not be quite as sexy as a cool new smart phone or bigger digs for your office. But it’s critical to make sure your investment doesn’t stretch your cash flow and sink you. “Growth can put an enormous strain on the cash flow of a company,” says Patrice Bernard, Senior Vice President, Financing and Consulting at the Business Development Bank of Canada. Small business owners often make the mistake of financing growth out of their cash flow or by cobbling together a patchwork of smaller loans for each individual purchase, Bernard says. Protect Cash Flow The result can be poor financing rates and repayment conditions. Or even worse – the company may suddenly become caught in a cash flow squeeze. And then it may be too late to line up any financing at all. “It’s as if you used a credit card to finance your home renovations. Your cash flow would be really affected,” Bernard says. Bad financial planning is especially common – and risky – at fast-growing companies, says Peter Brown of financial advisory firm Deloitte, where he is national leader of private company services. “High growth can kill you if you don’t have the capital.” Bernard agrees: “You need to plan more if you’re expanding because you
usually have much higher accounts payable and receivable.” The solution is to take time to do a financial plan for upcoming investments, preferably at the beginning of each year. The first step is to work out how much financing you’ll need based on your overall business growth plans. Next, meet with your financial partners early on to discuss your plans and brief them about your needs for the coming year. This is the time to secure a credit line for your investments in the coming year, which you can draw on as needed and then convert into long-term debt at the end of the year. Plan Financing The idea is to plan your financing to have the best possible conditions for your debt. The exercise may even show that you need more than one financial partner to give you enough flexibility. And never pay for large expansion projects out of your cash flow, Bernard says – even if it looks like you’ve got oodles of extra cash on hand right now. “That’s a big mistake,” Bernard says. “When cash flow is good, you think it will always be like that. But if a company is growing, it has to invest much more than other companies. And profits usually won’t be enough to cover your investments.” Brown agrees: “It’s always better to seek financing before you need it rather than during a crisis. It shows good management. Financiers are much more likely to give financing to an entrepreneur who shows good management.” Rob Read always used self-financing at his quickly growing fire extinguisher maintenance company, Bison Fire Protection, as it ballooned from five employees to 50 over the past decade.

You will need a strategy Con’t from Page 10. But when Read and partner Émile Jolicoeur decided to expand into new lines of business, such as fire alarms and sprinkler services, they realized they needed better financial planning. They brought in an outside consultant to help them plot out their overall business strategy, and that included laying out a financial plan. The exercise led them to do their first budgeting and forecasting and add overdraft protection and a line of credit to make sure they’ve had money lined up before they actually needed it. Equally important, Read says, he started including his financial partners more in his planning through regular meetings to discuss coming needs. “They’re partners in our busi-
ness. They’re definitely part of the team.” Ways to Finance Your Growth Thinking about how to finance your growing company? Here are some tips: • Talk to your suppliers – Consider asking suppliers for financing for a purchase, says Peter Brown of financial advisory firm Deloitte. Many are willing to offer a loan if it means a sale – a win-win for the supplier and you. And if you’re a supplier yourself, think about offering customers financing. It could become a new revenue stream and boost sales at the same time. • Speed up cash flow – Every entrepreneur knows productivity is important. But how many focus on the pro-
ductivity of their cash? “Faster cash flow is a big competitive advantage,” Brown says. Consider offering customers creative terms to speed up cash flow, such as a two per cent discount to those who pay within 10 days. “Getting cash quicker can mean more peace of mind and a reduced line of credit,” Brown says. • Focus on quality clients – Some customers are slow to pay because their cash flow isn’t great, and they’re sometimes not worth the effort or risk, Brown says. “Many businesses chase sales – rather than profitable sales,” he says. A trademark of wellmanaged companies is a focus on high-margin, quality customers, who translate into smoother finances and fewer surprises as you grow. “It’s a real secret to success.”

When you start your own business, you may have to wear many “hats”. You may have some great ideas, but how are you at handling business operations like administrative or managerial tasks? You need to know your strengths and weaknesses. Lack of management experience can lead to small business failure. Do not be shy about seeking out the advice of experts, networking with other entrepreneurs and hiring employees to help you run the business. Passion, persistence, and innovative thinking can improve your odds of success. Do you know what you want to achieve? Having determination, setting goals, paying attention to detail and motivating others are all key elements to achieving success and business growth. On the other hand, desire and persistence alone will not make you successful. For example, a lot of people love to cook and are talented chefs. Some may even dream of starting a restaurant. However, there are many restaurants in the marketplace; the profit margins are slim and customers have lots of choice. To be successful in that market, you need to truly be offering something new or unique. In short, you need to be sure that there is a big enough market for what you plan to offer and that the competition isn’t already too strong. Survival Tips Follow these tips to avoid some of

• Develop a good marketing and business plan that takes into account customer needs, competition, pricing and promotional strategies. • Have a good working knowledge of business law or hire a lawyer. • Understand your business finances, such as cash flow and handling credit. • Keep a good inventory of your products or services and your existing customers. • Supervise, train and motivate your employees. • Make sure you have the experience, expertise and talent to run your business. • Plan every part of your business from start to finish. • Know your market and define how much of it you will be able to capture. • Make sure you are offering a product that is unique and competitive or at a lower cost than that of your competitors. • Don’t under-estimate your expenses and over-estimate your revenue. • Make sure you have some cash reserves or a line of credit to help you get through slow periods.
“Becoming a successful entrepreneur requires business planning, innovation and risk-taking. It is a lot of work, but there are also many benefits to being your own boss... Being your own boss can allow you the freedom and independence to use your own ideas. As an entrepreneur, your time and energy can be spent creatively by putting these ideas to work for you and the future success of your business.”

Internet marketing 101 Do you have a business website but not sure if it’s doing your bottom line any favours? Keep these tips in mind. • Plan – Your online efforts should be guided by an online strategy that’s aligned with your overall business strategy, especially if you’re in growth mode. It should spell out your online goals (whether that’s making sales, generating leads or boosting your brand), your target audience and key messages. All this should guide the design of your website and social media properties – and the content on them. • Keywords – Make a list of 20 to 50 keywords that you think potential customers will use in Internet searches to find your services. Choose terms that help you stand out, and sprinkle them through your site and social content. • Social media and links – Search engine optimization means not only ranking well on Google, but also on social media sites. Post compelling and informative social content that visitors are likely to share. The more your site gets talked about and linked to elsewhere on the web, the higher you’ll rank in search results. • Website design – Visitors shouldn’t have to scroll or click a lot to find what they need. Prominently display your contact info and a call to action. • Paid ads – Consider paid ads on Google and social media targeted to your audience. • Measure – Monitor your online efforts to see what’s working and what’s not. Then adjust. Free tools like Google Analytics can help.
