College unfolds strategic plan for growth
The Parkland College has a new focus and it recently announced that its strategic plan for 2012-2015 is in effect in time for the new academic year. The plan is the result of a year of discussions, debate, and brainstorming among Parkland College staff, board members, and the public. It was officially introduced at the college’s annual board/staff workshop held in Yorkton last week. The final document was approved by the Parkland College Board of Governors at the end of June and will lead the college for the next three years and beyond. The plan includes revamped high level policy including a new positioning statement,
mission, and visionary outcomes. “Our strategic plan will guide us through an exciting time as the college and the region grow together. The policies and targets in the plan will prepare us for continued success in the years to come,” comments President Dr. Fay Myers. “We are focused on being engaged, passionate, and innovative. Our mission is to change lives, communities, and industries – one learner at a time. And our vision is to create prosperous individuals, enterprises, and economies driven by excellence at Parkland College.” Myers adds that the college is constantly adapting to better

Yorkton celebrates Culture Days
By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer
September ended with Culture Days, which saw different groups in the city celebrate culture through a variety of events and activities. The weekend featured a variety of displays and showcases of aboriginal traditions in Western Financial Group City Centre Park on Friday hosted by the Yorkton Tribal Council (YTC), free admission to the Western Development Museum on Saturday, and events at the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery on Sunday, including the opening of an exhibition and a screening of this year’s big winner at the Yorkton Film Festival, To Make A Farm. Terri-Ann Lepowick and Jackie Gamble with the YTC say their contribu-
tion was meant to be an interactive celebration of aboriginal culture, with demonstrations of dance as well as interactive booths focusing on drums, hand games, crafts language and other parts of the culture. “That’s how we start, by passing our language and culture down to our kids. We want to promote that as best we can,” Lepowick says. The spirit of Culture Days is something which Lepowick believes is vital for traditions to continue through the generations. She says that weekend a like provides a great opportunity to teach people about everyone’s backgrounds and also a chance to get people to reconnect with different traditions. “If we celebrate who we are we can celebrate anywhere, and it will show people who we are and welcome them to join us,” she concludes.
CULTURE DAYS AT WDM – The Western Development Museum celebrated Culture Days with free admission on Saturday. Guests were encouraged to take in the exhibits, speak with the Yorkton Newcomers Welcome Center to discuss upcoming events and the settlement services they offer, and view films from the Yorkton Film Festival.

Celebrating Canada’s seniors: making a difference We can all think of a senior who has made a difference in our lives. They are mentors, teachers, grandparents and loved ones. They are volunteers and role models. They have contributed generously, building our families, communities, workplaces and country. Every day, seniors right here in the federal constituency of Yorkton-Melville, make a big difference in our communities. As we celebrate National Seniors Day, let’s take the time to celebrate local seniors and show our appreciation for everything they do. One of our goals is to improve the well-being and quality of life of seniors and near-seniors through our departmental programs, services and benefits. The Government of Canada’s New Horizons for
Parliamentary Report Op-Ed Column by Garry Breitkreuz Seniors Program helps seniors use their leadership abilities, energy and skills to benefit communities across Canada. We also support positive and active aging through the collaborative Age-Friendly Communities
Initiative, Physical Activity Tips for Older Adults, and falls-prevention initiatives. We value what seniors have done for our country, and they deserve our thanks. National Seniors Day is our time to join together as a nation to honour Canada’s seniors. As your Member of Parliament, I encourage you to find your own unique way to celebrate the seniors in your life. Perhaps send a simple thankyou note to a senior you know. However you choose to express your gratitude, the message that we value older Canadians will be heard – and appreciated.

Local author brings wild west adventure days alive Submitted Morgotch
As boys grow up they generally give up their dreams of cowboys and outlaws, the old west and the adventures of the frontier days. Some lucky few, however find ways to live their dreams. One such person, local writer Elmer McInnes, continues to chase his fancies through his articles and books about real life characters of the early days of the west. McInnes, who works at Coles Book Store in Yorkton, has completed his third non-fiction book recounting the lives of real people. He suggests that sometimes real life can be more riveting and interesting than fictional accounts. The third book, chronicling the life of a prominent, notorious Canadian North West Mounted Policeman, swindler and con man, Walter Ross, has a close, personal con-
nection to McInnes. He first heard of Ross in stories related by his grandmother who knew Ross personally when he boarded at her home in London, England after fleeing Canada. Those accounts, McInnes suggests, may have spurred his interest in the outlaws of the old west. “I’ve lived with this story almost all my life from when I was a kid,” he states. His grand mother’s stories made him want to find out more about Ross and who he was. The book begins with Ross serving as a NWMP officer in Yorkton and area. A major part of the book concerns Ross’s life after he left the force. His activities eventually led to his escape to England where he was arrested by Scotland Yard and returned to Canada. Following his return to Canada, Ross continued to operate outside the

law and perpetrated one of the biggest Canadian hoaxes, involving a fake oil well, in McInnes’s opinion. McInnes suggests because of his grandmother’s stories, he has been involved with research of the Walter Ross story all his life. Writing bits and pieces of the narrative between his other books, McInnes estimates he wrote the book over 25 to 30 years. The Yorkton area, including Sheho, Otthon, Melville, Grayson are all mentioned in the book as places where Ross conducted his activities. The book is available at Coles in Yorkton, through Amazon Books, by contacting the publisher in Calgary at smokeridgebooks.ca or by contacting McInnes himself at elmer. email@example.com. Coles will host a book signing Saturday, October 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday,
October 27 the Yorkton Public Library will also host a book signing from 3 p.m to 5 p.m. Anyone who enjoys western nonfiction is invited to come to meet the author and have their first edition copy of the book signed by McInnes. “I would be happy to sign the book for anyone who wants it signed or personalized. Just come down, check out the book and see what it’s like,” he urges. He’s not done. McInnes is currently working on a pair of books about Nevada gunfighters. As well, he continues to research other American outlaws from Missouri, Utah, and Oregon. “I’ve got a lot of projects I hope to live long enough to complete,” he quips. As mentioned earlier, his grandmother’s story of Walter Ross got him interested in researching and writing these books. “Walter Ross was the genesis of the whole thing,” McInnes closes.
Falconers flock to area educational event for rare experience
Story and photos submitted by Lisa Hermiston
One Saturday, September 22, 2012, the Yellowhead Flyway Bird Trail Association (YFBTA) held an event that gave people a rare experience of watching two trained peregrine falcons demonstrate their hunting prowess. Forty-two people from numerous communities in the parkland area met at 8 a.m. in Saltcoats. The group then travelled west of Saltcoats to see YFBTA

member, Lynn Oliphant, who is a falcon breeder and handler, his wife, Rhonda, and a male fourmonth old falcon named Ed, fly and hunt small water fowl as well as other birds. The group then moved to another location, where there was a slough with many ducks. The Oliphants next introduced a second falcon, a fouryear old female named Ember. With the aid of their three hunting dogs, the ducks were flushed
from the slough which provided opportunity for Ember to prey upon them. She was successful and provided the group with a demonstration of the skills inherent in these birds. The prey of choice on this day was a green wing teal and was subsequently consumed in approximately 15 minutes. Oliphant explained that a meal this size would keep the bird satisfied for about thirty hours until it would eat again. They determine when to feed the birds by weighing them before and after they have hunted. Lynn has been involved with increasing the peregrine falcon population for many years prior to its near extinction. He began working with the University of Saskatchewan in a breeding program that has succeeded in releasing many birds back into the wild across the Canadian prairies and south into the mid-west United States. Lynn and his wife also operate a breeding and training facility for peregrine falcons at their home in Saskatoon.
They breed for their own hunting use, and to sell the trained birds to other licensed birds of prey hunters. Both the U of S breeding program and breeders like the Oliphants help sustain the falcon population. Lynn explained to the group that each bird has its own permit and then each handler must have a regular hunting permit. The birds of prey hunting season is open from the middle of August to the middle of February. The daily bag limit per falcon is one bird. When training a young bird, Oliphant explained that there is a four-week window of prime training time for a falcon. It begins about one week before the birds fly for the first time, and goes for three weeks after, when they generally will succeed in their first hunt. When in a hunt, the birds are fitted with a radio transmitter and the handler uses a whistle and signals to call the birds

A salute to Sask. agriculture industry It’s an industry that helps fuel Saskatchewan’s growth and one that needs to be appreciated. This week the province’s Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart proclaimed October as Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan. “Agriculture has an important role in the new Saskatchewan, where there are more opportunities and an unparalleled quality of life for people in both cities and on farms,” he comments. “Saskatchewan’s farmers and ranchers are stewards of the land whose products feed a growing population at home and around the world.” Agriculture is a vital contributor to Saskatchewan’s economy accounting for one-third of the province’s exports and one quarter of the province’s jobs. For the first time ever in 2011, Saskatchewan was Canada’s top exporter of agri-food products reaching $10.2 billion worth of exports. Agriculture has a bright future and many opportunities in Saskatchewan. The jobs created across the province in farming, ranching, research, processing, finance and other areas demand well-trained graduates and entrepreneurs who share a passion for agriculture. “Agriculture will continue to be important to our province’s growth,” Stewart says. And that’s a big reason to celebrate. Throughout the month of October, the Ministry of Agriculture is planning events and announcements that highlight the industry and those involved with it.

Sixty-five million if you marry my daughter She’s talented, she’s beautiful, she’s generous. She gives of her time selflessly in spite of the fact she’s quickly climbing the corporate ladder with a degree in architecture. She reportedly has a great sense of humor, is a helicopter pilot, loves children and is respectful of her family and parents. Her facebook profile says she is, “a social entrepreneur. Creator of expressions in colour and emotion. She loves children and calls the Economist ‘food for my soul’.” Yup that totally sounds like a woman in need of help finding a mate. What a loser. Yeesh. I guess if you have unlimited amounts of money at your disposal it will allow you to attempt just about anything. A Hong Kong business tycoon has just announced he is offering $65 million to any worthy man who can win the heart of his daughter. His daughter is named Gigi and she’s the gal I was referring to in my opening paragraph. If you ask me, 33 year old Gigi has it all going on and is fully capable of making her own selections when it comes to finding a partner. In fact, she’s done so. But her father doesn’t really approve. You see Gigi has picked a woman as her significant other and while it’s not formally recognized in Hong Kong, she’s reportedly even married her partner of seven years. We’re not talking about a family at war, Cecil Chao –
Gigi’s father – says his daughter is “a very good woman with both talent and looks,” however he would prefer she had a MAN in her life. He cares not whether the man is rich or poor, only that he is a man with a kind heart and a generous nature. 65 million will be used Shannon Deveau The in part to establish a business for his new son-in-law. Hmmm... Now do you not think this totally opens the door for every nut job out there to walk right in? Does it really matter who his daughter chooses as her mate as long as she’s happy and being treated well? Not surprisingly Gigi’s online social accounts are already filling up with requests for her hand in marriage. I mean really, what’s a guy got to lose? But does this father really want to turn his daughter’s life into a game show contest for all the world to take part in? Maybe it’s an attention ploy, who knows. Supposedly Gigi isn’t overly upset by the latest turn of events. She says she finds it all “entertaining.” But even so, there are some things that money just shouldn’t be able to buy, some things that are maybe best left up to chance. I know arranged marriages and such still take place in today’s day and age – to each his own I suppose – but if it were my father going to these lengths I can tell you I sure wouldn’t be impressed or eager.
The way I see it... Column
Let’s be optimistic about our potential neighbors Since it has been coming up a great deal recently, in a variety of locations, for many different reasons, I suppose it’s time to declare that I do not like NIMBYs. That’s an acronym for “Not In My Back Yard,” and it represents a group of people who meet any project, whatever the goal, with that declaration, even if they have no reason to be upset. One can kind of understand the mind of the wild NIMBY, for it is what happens when life is run out of fear, and there is no time to consider the possible upside. Everything they protest is due to their conviction that the new development, the new projects, the new anything will somehow decrease their standard of living. They wish to live in a bubble, protected from anything that might possibly harm them, though not a literal bubble because that would probably reduce property values. That fear is why they protest things that seem innocuous to those of us in the community who are sane and level-headed. For instance, when an average person sees a relatively inexpensive housing development, they might think it is a good thing, for there is currently a compressed real estate market and more homes in the city is probably a good thing. Others might get excited, for they want to buy a new house and have been having difficulty actually finding a
Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger good one in the city that fits their family. For a NIMBY, this is the apocalypse, because it means a bunch of new people who could potentially poke a hole in their tiny bubble. They use excuses like the people are in a different socioeconomic class and somehow won’t be able to get along with their neighbors, even if that’s plainly nonsense. They’ll say inexpensive homes will reduce property values even if they plainly won’t, given that it’s a new development and these stay rather nice looking for a long time. They’ll question whether the kids will fit in at school, even though the price of the parents’ house has never been a big concern for most chil-
dren. Deep down, however, it’s fear, a worst-case scenario that will never play out but they’re constantly paranoid will ruin their lives. An optimist might say that a bunch of new families, potentially with young kids, could rejuvenate the local school, since it’s new kids and new parents who might want to get involved in events and school activities. Or, they could just be like the average new neighbors, and quietly fit into town with little fuss. You don’t know until they’ve moved in and a NIMBY can’t handle that. It’s not just housing, anything new shatters the world of a NIMBY. New businesses could create traffic or attract people they don’t like. New public facilities could cost them all their money and they will never use them, because they are hiding under blankets in their basement. Things like transitional homes for youth could cause hooligans, instead of helping kids get on their feet, which is their actual purpose. It’s a world view caused by a fear of all things. If we listened to the NIMBYs, nothing would happen and everything would stagnate. So I propose they get ignored, shoved into the corner while the sane among us discuss realistic scenarios and view the world as rational with a touch of optimism. It’s a much more relaxing perspective.

Americans just don’t get it... yet Paid to think
To the Editor:
Having just been in Washington talking about how Canada broke the back of its deficit, balanced its books, and thrived as a result, I can officially say that Americans just don’t get it. And not only do they not get it, they don’t even understand what it is they don’t get. I am used to a “can do” attitude on the part of Americans, a belief that if problems are faced honestly and squarely, no obstacle is insurmountable. But all I heard was a long list of things that “can’t be done” and an even longer list of reasons why Canada’s success cannot be replicated south of the border. No matter how you alter or iron it, the defeatist suit just doesn’t look right on the American physique. As former Prime Minister Paul Martin and former Alberta and Saskatchewan finance ministers Stockwell Day and Janice MacKinnon and I all told them, their problem appears to them insoluble because they are thinking about it the wrong way. They think deficits are a sideshow, and what everybody cares about is taxes, social programs, defence spending and entitlements. Our reply: responsible political leaders have to shift that discussion because all of those things are themselves endangered by deficits and mounting debt. As Martin so eloquently put it, Canadians came to understand that if they wanted to save health care, they had to cut everything, including health care, so that it could be put on a sustainable footing. And they had to do it when conditions, while bad, were not dire. You can’t wait because, eventually, the situation will worsen and the decisions as to what to cut will become more
difficult. Many Canadians do not realize the immense debt we owe to the generation of politicians in the 1990s: New Democrats in Saskatchewan, Tories in Alberta and Ontario, Liberals in Ottawa and B.C. and others elsewhere who grasped the nettle of reform and got out and sold Canadians on the idea that the deficit was a danger to all they held dear, and that sacrifice was necessary to preserve and protect so much that they valued.
cians too often see new revenue as a reason to spend. Canada had a spending problem, not a revenue problem, and it required less spending to solve it. All of the former finance ministers with me in Washington also agreed that it took a hard-nosed but thoughtful approach to cutting spending to win Canadians’ support. Every bit of spending was measured against objective yardsticks like protecting the central roles of government, value for money and affordability. And of course a simple, objective, easy-to-understand target caught the public imagination and focused everyone’s efforts. Canada as a nation became obsessed with getting the deficit to zero. Every budget season Canadians looked to see what progress had been made. And virtually every government followed Martin’s advice: set a tough target for progress each year, but make very certain you meet that target. Every time you fall short you damage your credibility and give ground to doubt and despair. One day American politicians will understand all this, and when they do, they’ll get the most important lesson of all: every government that grasped the nettle of reform didn’t merely defeat the deficit, but enjoyed tremendous public support and was handily re-elected. They dished out tough medicine, but did it on the promise of the right kind of hope and change: a hope that was neither vague nor rhetorical, and a change that was both practical and immediate. Almost 20 years later, Canadians still owe those politicians from the ’90s a debt of gratitude.
“I am used to a “can do” attitude on the part of Americans, a belief that if problems are faced honestly and squarely, no obstacle is insurmountable.” Progress on the deficit in Canada only became possible when the parties ceased to treat it as a matter of partisan contention, but rather of vital national interest. That lesson is one Americans and their political class will one day have to shoulder. Define as a national issue, the deficit therefore requires a national solution. Everyone contributed to the mess, and everyone will have to contribute to cleaning it up. In Canada, no programs were sacrosanct from spending cuts: not defence, nor transport subsidies nor social programs. Some taxes went up, but reform had to fall most heavily on spending. Canadians learned when the GST was introduced that simply increasing revenue wouldn’t make the deficit go away, not least because politi-

Simple actions go far to end illiteracy
To the Editor:
Everywhere you look, you see words – in newspapers, online, on signs, on buses or in books. Imagine for a minute that you can’t comprehend what these words mean. Everything written looks strange or foreign. How would you feel? Helpless? Stranded? That’s exactly how one in six adults around the world feel. Lacking minimum literacy skills, these individuals risk becoming isolated from society. Illiteracy affects
their ability to find jobs and to contribute to their community, and therefore affects their very survival. Reading and writing are things we take for granted. However, despite many efforts, literacy for all – children, youth and adults is still an unaccomplished goal. September 18 is World Literacy Day. As governments promote literacy and affirm its vital importance as a human right, you too can do something. Here are some interesting ways
you can contribute in the fight to end illiteracy. • Volunteer. Spare some time to teach someone to read or write. • Sponsor a Child. Giving children the opportunity to attend school is vitally important in the world’s attempt to prevent illiteracy. But worldwide, millions of children are unable to attend school for financial reasons. Sponsoring a child through an organization like World Vision can give children access to education and helps them break through the
cycle of poverty (www. worldvision.ca). • Fundraise. You could take it a step further and even organize a fundraiser to help build a school in a developing country (www.friendsofworldvision.com). • Donate your old books. Clear out your old books that you don’t read anymore and give them to the library. Whatever you choose to do, there’s no better time to start than now. Roshan Chandy, Mississauga, ON.
Rural folks expect better governance than this To the Editor: I read, ‘Internet woes loud wakeup call’, by Murray Mandryk, The StarPhoenix September 26, 2012. Mandryk did an excellent job of depicting the Sask Party govt’s behavior which obviously discriminates against our rural life style and culture. As early as June , 2009 we saw then Justice Minister Don Morgan promising the Harper gov’t. that Sask. will “accept a (gun owner) licensing regime” contained within the much hated Liberals’ Bill C-68.(1) This step was in stark contrast to previous Sask gov’ts. “who opted out of the administra-
tion of the program altogether.” These former governments felt, “if we did not take action on behalf of the people of Saskatchewan who have expressed concerns about the Bill, we would be avoiding our responsibilities.” Rural folks hoped that fair minded urban dwellers, like Mr. Morgan and Premier Wall, would join with them in opposition to Bill C-68. Before being elected, they seemed to understand the problems it caused rural residents. After the vote, they fail to care about how intrusive, abusive and invasive the process of forcing gun owners to license is and that it makes the mere possession of a
firearm by responsible Canadians illegal. In addition, there is Premier Wall’s refusal to place a much needed new bridge at Prince Albert, the gateway to the resource laden North and rural heartland. Instead, he opted for a taxpayer funded football stadium in Regina. Yet, our many rural Sask Party MLAs remain silent about this while their leader and his small ruling coalition governs to garner public approval ratings and more votes. Rural folks expect better governance than this. Joe Gingrich Nipawin, SK.
To the Editor:
Someone, please! Tell Dan Albas what to think. Westbank First Nations (WFN) plans to open a private hospital, but the rookie MP for the area, Okanagan-Coquihalla, doesn’t know what his opinion should be. He has no problem throwing public money around. Albas supports upgrading the Merritt Civic Centre with your tax money, and he threw a cool quarter of a million to some local food activists in Grand Forks to set up a mobile abattoir to replace the private one that had operated profitably for decades. But WFN’s plans don’t require a handout, so Albas is befuddled. And he’s asking constituents what he should think before daring to speak out. Another private healthcare venture has been providing healthcare to Canadians since 1995, including Workers’ Compensation Board clients and a bevy of impatient politicians. I’m referring of course to Dr. Brian Day’s Cambie Surgery Centre in Vancouver. Day is under constant pressure from the B.C. Medical Services Commission to stop billing his patients. So, upon hearing of Albas’s reluctance to support WFN’s plans, Dr. Day didn’t mince words: he called Albas a coward. “In the old days, politicians led,” Day lamented in our interview, “now they follow.” Dr. Day launched a challenge in 2009 to wait lists, an expensive and risky legal endeavor which, ironically, will help WFN in its much larger venture. And scant few conservatives or B.C. Liberals will dare utter so much as a word of support. In stark contrast to Albas, former Conservative MP Keith Martin, a doctor from Vancouver Island, routinely speaks out in support of private healthcare, pointing out it will save a whopping 340,000 lives a year! Even Cuba offers private healthcare, as does every other nation in the world, except Canada and North Korea. Switzerland ONLY offers private healthcare. The government covers medical insurance for the poor, and there are no wait times. And so people like Dr. Day, Chief Robert Louie of WFN, and Grand Chief Stewart Phillip of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, are doing everything they can to change Canada’s monopolistic public healthcare system. It’s the only way to help the poor who suffer the worst health outcomes in Canada. Anyone can pretend to lead after studying poll results. Of course, Albas doesn’t have the money to conduct a real poll, so he’s trying to use the media to sound out public sentiment. Dr. Day, Chief Louie, and everyone sitting on a wait list, can only wait to see what he decides. They might end up waiting a long time. Albas, you’ll recall, supported Canada’s LongGun Registry, voting to kill it only when instructed to do so by the Prime Minister, but still reserving support for a different type of gun-registration scheme. Combine this with Albas’s support for B.C.’s Carbon Tax and you might think he was an MP from Quebec! Ironically though, a 2005 decision by the Supreme Court of Canada struck down a Quebec law that banned private insurance. That’s right folks; even Quebec allows clinics like Dr. Day’s to operate, just as Cuba does. Aren’t conservatives supposed to support the free market and the rights of individuals? Day’s Cambie Surgery Centre and Chief Louie’s proposed hospital will be the two most important things to happen to healthcare in this country, assuming they survive the attacks from healthcare bureaucrats who number one for every 1,400 Canadian citizens compared to just one for every 15,000 citizens in Germany. An Ipsos Reid Poll conducted this summer showed 76 percent of Canadians support a hybrid public-private system. But Canadians are left to drop dead while the world’s most disproportionate horde of unionized paperpushers defends the status quo and gets a free ride from politicians like Albas. Could we get an answer Mr. Albas? Soon? You see, it’s what you were elected to do. Mischa Popoff, Osoyoos, BC.

“A student at Parkland College, currently upgrading to make my Grade 12 from the Yorkton Regional High School more up to date. June 8, 2004 is the day I graduated from high school. Since then I took part in a class at Partners In Employment, I worked for Prairie Harvest Employment Program walking the streets picking up garbage and working on the Recycling bus picking up the Blue Bins, I worked at Painted Hand casino as a Dishwasher and a Custodian, I help set up tables and chairs for the Yorkton First Steps Graduations and family bar-B-Q’s. I am 27 years old, I was born in Preeceville and raised in Yorkton my whole life. I am a loving and caring person, I care about the people and I want to make Yorkton a better place. 10 years ago I said I was going to run for mayor and now I am actually experiencing it. To actually win though would be the coolest thing to ever happen to me. I like to make music from the hip hop genre, I been doing that since I was 15 and one day I would love to hear one of my songs on the radio or even a video on Much Music

council duties I am also Branch Manager of TD Canada Trust and remain committed to being involved within our community. I presently serve as Chairman of the Yorkton Housing Corportation, as a member of the Economic Development Committee, as a member of the Emergency Measures Committee, a director of the Spring Expo, and a member and past president of the Yorkton Lions Club. It gives me great pleasure as a city councillor to have been directly involved in the decisions that have shaped our city in to what it is today. Our city is growing with many new businesses, an expanding community college, a new firehall, water treatment plant, skateboard park, walking trails, and numerous job opportunities to retain our youth.”
Terriers, I was privileged to be part of a great community based organization, and was honoured to receive the award of “most popular player voted by the fans”. My greatest priority in running for City Council is to listen to the citizens of Yorkton, and to address their concerns ensuring the best interests of the community. I have extensive experience in strategic planning, budgeting, development and implementation of policies and procedures, as well as working with a diverse team to accomplish results.”
Vying for Council
Les Arnelien “It has been my privilege to serve the residents of Yorkton as city councillor for the past twelve years. During this time we have experienced unprecedented growth which continues to benefit our entire community. It is important that we continue to strive for growth and development, so that Yorkton continues to be the place “Where Good Things Happen”. I am proud to call Yorkton home after living, working, and raising my two daughters here. In addition to my
My name is Robby Bear, and I am very honoured to be nominated for Yorkton City Council. My wife Avery and I are raising a young family of four children (Sarah, Birdie, Kadence and Ryker) and we are very pleased to call Yorkton home. Moving to Yorkton at a young age, I attended school at St. Joseph Jr. High, as well as the Yorkton Regional high school. I studied business at the University of Regina, and have progressed as a successful business man in the community for the past ten years. I have maintained strong ties with the community over the years and am presently in my third year as a Director with the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce. While playing Jr. “A” hockey with the Yorkton
3 DAYS ONLY
Chris Wyatt It has been an honour to serve the people of Yorkton for the past 12 years on city council. The city of Yorkton is thriving with new housing developments and commercial buildings starting every week. My main goal in the next four years, if elected for a fifth term, will be to keep that momentum going. I believe that the latest annexation ruling in Yorkton’s favour gives us industrial land to the north and residential to the south to grow Yorkton for the next 5-10 years. With the new commercial area by the Parkland Mall and future space available by the tourism building, businesses have choices where to start up or relocate their buildings. Having the support of my wife Deb Link and two children gives me the resolve to make decisions not only for today’s needs but our
future as well. With my daughter in elementary school and son in high school I believe I am able to represent family concerns. I have been outspoken and asked the tough questions when needed as we spend your hard earned tax dollars.
Mayor, James Wilson has spent the last six years on City Council building a better Yorkton for residents and businesses. Continued on Page 8.

Empty nest syndrome brings with it many emotions Empty-nest syndrome is the name given to a psychological condition that can affect parents when their children are leaving home. It is not a condition of illness found in medical books, yet very real and can affect you emotionally, physically and spiritually. It is most common when your last child goes off to university or when your last child gets married and leaves home. As parents you may have feelings of depression, sadness, emptiness and grief. You knew that this day will come but, you may have a difficult time facing this reality that your child is all grown up and ready to leave home. Mothers are usually affected the most. During this time frame, mothers often are going through other significant life events themselves such as menopause or trying to cope with increasingly dependent elderly parents or in-laws. This doesn’t mean that dads are immune to Empty Nest Syndrome. Men may experience similar feelings when their children leave home. Men often do not express feelings openly so we may not hear about their concerns as openly as we hear the concerns of women. The children also go through growing pains and often wish they were home again. Often children do return home again as they may need financial assistance, the need for additional education, divorce or any other problem causing a temporary transition in their lives. You have spent years preparing your children for this day and you often do not realize how fast that day came for your children to leave home. The house seems so empty after the children leave home. The frig remains full, no more slamming of doors, no more dirty clothes on the floor, and the phone has stopped ringing. It will take time to make new adjustments once your children have left home. This may be an excellent opportunity for you and your spouse to share some precious time together and do something you have often longed to do. You may wish to take a vacation, go back to school, relocate, change your vocation or take up a new hobby. It is important to stay in touch with your children. Today’s families keep in contact with each other principally by texting. Another popular way of keeping in touch is by email, while others use Skype and the use of Webcams. If you don’t know how to use these modern ways of communication, learn how to do it as soon as possible and keep in touch with your children. The home may feel empty, but it can be a time for new beginnings for you and your spouse. It can be a time of reflection, and a time to
rejoice for a job well done. Remember what blessing it has been for you to have raised your children in a loving Christian home. Now you watch as they live out morals that have been taught to them in their youth. A new chapter in your life has begun- the last chapter is completed and you can be very proud that your child has made this far in life. Letting your children go is the next stages of their life is often
FROM MOURNING TO JOY... Column by Margaret Anne Yost difficult. You may find this to be an emotion time in your life. Many emotions will be experienced and reflected upon in this time frame.
Your young adult children will do tasks differently than you did them. They will make some mistakes just as you did, but you can step back and thank

Do what it takes to save the programming Yorkton/Melville MP Garry Breitkreuz stood up in Parliament recently to express his shock at a recent decision by Shaw Media/ Global Television to cancel all hunting-related programming beginning January 1, 2013: “Mr. Speaker, Canada’s outdoor heritage is under attack – again. “Recently the Shaw Media/ Global Television network announced that it will stop airing all hunting shows on December 31st of this year. This is astonishing news given that millions of Canadians not only participate in Canada’s great hunt-
“Our heritage sports are under siege. If we don’t act now, who knows what the future may hold. Let’s do whatever is necessary to get this ridiculous decision overturned.” – Garry Breitkreuz ing tradition, but are known to be some of the most respected leaders in wildlife conservation. “Recreational hunting in Canada contributes billions of dollars to the economy each year. Popular shows that promote the sport and educate
Canadians such as Angler and Hunter TV, Canada in the Rough and The Canadian Tradition, have been unceremoniously pulled from the Global lineup. “Many large, well-funded, international groups want to shut down not only hunting,
but other outdoor heritage activities as well. This unfortunate decision smacks of bias against Canada’s hunting and sport shooting traditions. “As co-chair of the Outdoors Caucus, I encourage all Canadians who value
Canada’s traditional outdoors heritage sports to speak out against this decision. Hunting is part of our cultural fabric. We must protect it!” Breitkreuz says he is optimistic that if enough Canadians, including hunters and anglers, make their views known to Global Television/Shaw Media, they could carry enough weight to make the company reconsider. “Our heritage sports are under siege. If we don’t act now, who knows what the future may hold. Let’s do whatever is necessary to get this ridiculous decision overturned,” he concludes.
Yorkton gets set for the polls: candidates named Con’t from Page 6.

James received education and training at Parkland College, University of Saskatchewan and Queen’s School of Business.

Yorkton has grown significantly the last few years, and that has made it an interesting and challenging time to be on City Council. We want to encourage that 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. 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 Health Foundation is a local charity that raises funds to purchase medical equipment that will enhance our local healthcare. 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 should have a very similar objective.

Crosswalk art is here It approved at a recent city council meeting and now it can be seen Yorkton city streets. Sponsored by the Yorkton Business Improvement District, Crosswalk Art is here and it’s designed to raise awareness of pedestrian and traffic safety issues. Traffic in Yorkton is well-managed, but density is increasing as newcomers, temporary workers and long time residents navigate the streets. This clash of driving cultures adds to the pressure and the challenges faced by drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. City of Yorkton council members say they are working to ensure that Yorkton continues to thrive as a vibrant community, one that encourages an active and healthy lifestyle. “We enjoy a safe and healthy community, and the Business Improvement District wants everyone to walk freely downtown and take advantage of the many businesses and services available. Sponsoring a public art initiative to raise awareness of traffic safety is an ideal course to further both goals,” adds YBID Chairman Ken Chyz. Crosswalk art was immediately recognized by the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery as an opportunity for an innovative, whimsical and useful public art project.
Working with Yorkton designer Kelly Litzenberger of MEEP Creative Agency, three designs were created and approved for the first crosswalks: cutlery, piano keys, and neckties. Eight intersections with 32 crosswalks were done in the first round. “Our primary concern is pedestrian safety, both encouraging people to use the crosswalks and drivers to be more aware of them. Once we see how drivers respond, the crosswalk art program can be shaped to be even more effective. Other designs and locations are being developed based on what we learn with this first stage,” according to Donald Stein, executive director of the Godfrey Dean Gallery. Crosswalk Art also benefits from a unique public-private sector partnership called artsVest, a sponsorship matching program established by Business for the Arts with the Government of Saskatchewan. artsVest provides matching funding for arts and culture organizations that raise new sponsorship dollars from the business community. Resources from artsVest and the Yorkton Business Improvement District are enabling the gallery to deliver this playful, but practical, community art project.
FOR ALL THINGS SMALL – The Harley Owners Group worked to give to everything small recently, with donations to different groups. Pictured above, the Salvation Army received a wide assortment of toys from the group’s annual toy collection, in order to give less fortunate kids a gift for Christmas. For the furrier friends (below), the group encouraged people to donate to the SPCA and receive an entry for a $500 shopping spree at Yorkton Harley. This raised a total of $1,000.
What’s up at Good Spirit?
Fall is here and what beautiful colors we have on the trees... but our greens and fairways are still very green, thanks to the hard work of our maintenance crew. I hope we still have lots of golf weather to come! There has been a lot of work done at the skating rink this fall. First of all, thanks to Sasha and Danny Wasylenchuck from Howland Honey Farms for the use of their power washer and generator. Ralph, Linda and Todd were able to get the old paint off the boards with a lot less work by using their equipment! Then there was a work party that painted the entire outside of the rink, which makes it look a lot better, and will preserve the life of the boards for awhile. Thanks to all the volunteers, who enjoyed a hot dog, courtesy of the Community Association after all their hard work. Thanks to Norm and Nyle for building some shelves and cupboards for the camp kitchen and new building. Every fall, we have the Community Association Toilet Seat Tournament. We played nine holes of 4-person scramble golf and then joined several others from the community at the Camp Kitchen for a hamburger barbeque. It was a beautiful day, and there were children playing on the swings and teeters, playing catch and just having a great time. Winners of the tournament were Marie Happy, Bob Hogg, Bev Bradshaw and Carol Olsen That day we were joined by a new “resident” to GSA, by the name of Tore Peters, who is an exchange student at the Regional High School in Yorkton. Tore’s host family is Garth, Fern and Tyler Sherwood. Welcome Tore and we hope that you enjoy your stay here. The senior golf wind-up was held with 17 golfers participating. Winners of the 2012 Senior Wind-up Tournament were: 1st; Willie Armstrong, Mickey Johnston, Gilda Walls and Carol Olsen. 2nd: Roger Argue, Gladys Moore, and Bruce Johnston. Ladies
closest to the pin was Willie. Mens closest to the pin was John Neufeld. Following the golf, the annual meeting was held. New executive are: Past Pres. Mickey Johnston, Pres. John Neufeld, Vice Pres. Ivar Olsen, Sec Treasurer Gilda Walls. We will continue to play senior golf at 1:30 p.m. until the golf course closes. Condolences to Adella Hanson and her family on the passing of Paul Hanson last month. They have been summer residents here for many years and we always enjoyed their company on the golf course and at pot luck suppers. Condolences to Bob Martin and his family on the passing of Georgette Martin. They have been residents of Good Spirit Acres for many years. We will miss her. There will be a fundraiser supper at Tapps on Saturday, Oct. 27.
Tickets will be $20 per person for your choice of steak or chicken. Tickets will be available from the executive members as well as Good Spirit Market. I hope that many of you will attend and bring your friends. The executive includes Linda Moore, Lynn MacDonald, Sandy Konkel, Elaine Park, Norm Lawrence and Carol Olsen. The Hamlet Board annual meeting was held this past weekend with a good attendance from the community. Don Thompson was reelected as councilor for a 3-year term. We thank Don, Jim Rediger, and John MacDonald, the three Hamlet Councilors and John Neufeld RM Councilor for their work for the good of the community of Good Spirit Acres. And finally... The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.
Sudoku Puzzle of the Week 8
8 7 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 easy. See the solution on Page 10.

Minimum wage slated to increase The minimum wage in Saskatchewan will increase to $10.00 per hour on December 1, 2012, an increase from the current minimum wage of $9.50 per hour. The move follows a commitment by the Government of Saskatchewan to review the hourly minimum wage on a year-to-year basis. The change also results in a corresponding increase to the minimum call-out pay to $30.00. “The contributions of Saskatchewan’s working population are essential to ongoing economic growth and prosperity in the province,” Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan comments. “This increase in minimum wage, together with
the significant tax reductions our government has provided to low income earners, means that Saskatchewan will have one of the highest rates of take-home pay in Canada for minimum wage earners.” The increase is part of an overall review of labour relations and workplace safety legislation currently underway. Morgan said the government is still actively considering indexing minimum wage as part of that review, but wanted to announce the 50 cent per hour increase now to give employers ample time to prepare for the December 1 implementation date. “Since taking office, our government has increased minimum wage from $7.95 to $10.00 an hour,” Morgan adds. “That’s an increase of nearly 26 per cent in five years – well ahead of the rate of inflation.” Public consultations on the issue indicated significant support for an increase to the minimum wage. The Minister’s Advisory Committee on labour legislation review overwhelmingly supported an increase.

TERRIERS AND BRONCOS players go hard into the boards during a Friday night tilt at the FAA. The Terriers won 5-3 on Friday night before losing their first of the season to Notre Dame on the road.
Terriers win at home, lose on road By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer In their second week of the SJHL season the Yorkton Terriers showed at the very least they will be an entertaining team to follow. With two back and forth games that came down to the third period, the Terriers extended their record to two wins and one loss. On Friday night the Terriers beat the Humboldt Broncos 5-3, the Terriers went into the third period with a 3-1 lead off of goals from Brenden Poncelet, Zak Majkowski, and Jeremy Johnson before giving up the lead with under five minutes
left in the third period after two unanswered goals came in a three minute span. The Terriers answered back as Nathan Murray scored a clutch goal with fifty seconds left before Tyler Giebel added an empty net tally to give the Terriers a 5-3 win, avoiding a third period collapse and securing the two points at home. Kale Thomson had another solid game in net, stopping 34 shots and nullifying the 37-25 shot advantage the Broncos had in the game. After the win the Terriers headed out on their first road trip of the season with a trip to Wilcox to take on the Notre Dame Hounds. The first period
started out scoreless despite Notre Dame taking two hits to the head penalties resulting in two minute minor penalties with the additional ten minute misconduct as per the SJHL’s policy on hits to the head. Jeremy Johnson opened up the scoring with a goal assisted by Nathan Murray to continue both players hot starts to the season. Third period woes continued for the Terriers in this game as two unanswered goals to start the third period gave the Hounds the win and handed the Terriers their first loss of the season. The Terriers next action will be on the road against Wey-
burn where they will have a rematch of their season opening win over the Red Wings before they head back to Yorkton on Saturday night to face the Nipawin Hawks. Fatigue may be a factor in the weekend’s games as the Terriers have to travel back from Weyburn to Yorkton in a two games in two night stretch so expect coach Trent Cassan to make some personnel moves over the weekend to attempt to keep the players as fresh as possible. The Terriers home contest against Nipawin kicks off at 7:30 p.m. and as always will be held at the Farrell Agencies Arena.
Gridders finish season with first ever bowl win By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer In a season of firsts it was only fitting that the Yorkton Atom Gridders made another Yorkton Minor Football first on Sunday afternoon at Century Field. After a 4-2 season that saw the Gridders win their first ever home win, the young squad hosted its first bowl game in its existence as well as winning their first ever Football Saskatchewan Atom Bowl game in the process in what was a shootout between the Gridders and the Regina Cats. The game itself was a barnburner as both teams threw caution to the wind and played a game that saw both teams put up sixty points in a 68-60 game that gave the parents and fans at Century Field plenty to cheer about. Quarterback Jordin Rusnack of the Gridders scored six touchdowns of his own in the game while commanding an offense that put points up on the board all season, topping off what was a great season for the Gridders offense. The Gridders finished the 2011/12 season 1-5 with a loss in a bowl game in Regina in what was a season that introduced many to football, with more experienced players in this season, the Gridders really saw improvement which was a key to their success according to head coach Steve Variyan. Variyan mentioned that last year not one player on the Gridders
now two-thirds of their players on the team had played football before the first game of the season, which was a key to their winning ways in this season. Variyan also pointed out that the Atom program is helping grow Yorkton football as various coaches of the Pee Wee and Junior programs come out and mention their excitement in having experienced young players in their programs, which is a big part of the Yorkton Minor football program. The Gridders are a part of a flourishing year in Yorkton football with a
winning Pee Wee team heading into their post season as well as the YRHS junior and senior teams planning on making runs in the playoffs in the Regina and Moose Jaw leagues respectively. The Atom Gridders will look to return to further success in the RMF while some players will move on to the Pee Wee level next year. Coach Variyan mentioned that this years group was a special one and that it was “a pleasure to coach this group of kids, and it was an enjoyable year for all of us.”

Raiders fall short to Cyclones on Friday Night Lights By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
It was a night to remember and a night to forget for the YRHS Raiders football team on Friday night when they hosted the Moose Jaw Central Cyclones in their second annual Friday Night Lights game at Century Field. After a rout in last years game over pushovers Regina martin this game had the extra addition of a battle for first place that made the night truly special. The game started out with a Central rushing touchdown on a quarterback scramble
after a David Balysky fumble on a punt return set the Cyclones up with solid field position. Dalton Fichtner answered back before halftime with one of three rushing touchdowns on the day. The Raiders had a chance to score to exit the half after a big catch from Ryan Krochak put them in field goal range, but the Raiders opted to go for the touchdown and ended the half at 7-7. The second half saw the Cyclones take the lead with the Raiders coming close again and again, Cyclones quarterback Brenden Forbes and the Regional’s Dalton Fich-
tner both showed their leadership as two Grade Twelve quarterbacks laid it on the line in one of the biggest game’s of their high school career. The Raiders nearly came back off of Fichtner scrambles and a well executed onside kick from Darius Haberstock, but the teams final drive to the endzone ended with a batted down pass intended for Layne Hull that saw the Cyclones hold on to a four point victory in the games final play. Cyclones coach Colin Belsher was happy with the performance of his team saying that heart was the key to the
Cyclones victory. Belsher also credited the Regional squad for playing until the final whistle and mentioned that both teams put on a show under the lights in what was the first ever night game for the Cyclones as Moose Jaw lacks the facilities for a night game. The Cyclones finish off their season with a rivalry game against Moose Jaw Peacock in the season’s final week that will potentially set up a three way tie between Peacock, Central and the Regional, but Belsher fully expects his team to finish up the regular season in first place and earn a first round bye. Raiders coach Roby Sharpe was understandably visibly upset after the heartbreaking loss, but took positives from the close loss saying, “We have a damn good football team.” Sharpe also pointed out that the turnover battle likely cost the Raiders the game as they committed five turnovers in the game, but all in all took the game as another measuring stick for the Raiders in their new league. With two games remaining including a Thursday road trip to Swift Current and a weekend clash at Century Field against Estevan Sharpe expects to bounce back and win the next two games and
snap up at least the second place seed and home field advantage in the quarterfinals and semifinals for the Raiders. As for the potential rematch in the cars in the City Championship Sharpe said the key to beating the Cyclones if they get a second chance will be protecting the football. Sharpe closed out his comments by thanking all of the fans for coming out and supporting the event and also was happy with what was a very entertaining night of high school football. At 3-1 with a narrow defeat at the hands of the likely first seed heading into the playoffs, the Raiders have shown makings of a championship contending playoff team. On offense the Raiders have a big offensive line and the senior leadership of Layne Hull and Dalton Fichtner who will likely end up being two of the league’s best players at the end of the season. Young players like wide receiver Ryan Krochak and running back Zack Kais provide skill for the future while providing big performances for the Raiders now. On defense the potent lineup of players like Grey McKen, Tyson Haas, Hull, Haberstock, and Mackenzie Shore give the Raiders the hard hitting and
consistent defense they have come to rely on year in and year out as their identity. Players like Adam McCannell, who played with a near broken hand on defense also add to the toughness of a team that is one of the best Yorkton has seen in years. Despite the loss, which can be attributed to turnovers and a few calls that could have went their way, including a referee error that awarded the Cyclones an extra fifteen yards as well as turning the ball over for the Raiders on a punt return, the Raiders can head into the final two weeks of the regular season with the knowledge that they can beat anyone in the league. The next two weeks of the season will be crucial for the Raiders as they will look to lock up the all important home field advantage with wins over Swift Current and Estevan, teams that will also be looking to improve their playoff pictures with upset wins over the Raiders. Friday Night Lights was a special night for Yorkton football in their new league, but it likely won’t be the last special event in the 2012/13 YRHS Football season as championship dreams were born in defeat on a fall Friday night at Century Field.
GREY CUP TRAIN TOUR festivities hit Yorkton as people of all ages took the chance to see the Cup in its 100th year.
Grey Cup comes to Yorkton By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer It only made sense that the Grey Cup made its way to football crazy Yorkton as part of its VIA Rail tour as the train, which is making stops in Regina, Saskatoon, and Moose Jaw continued its trek across Canada. The train is commemorating the 100th Grey Cup which is taking place in Toronto on November 25th and features many historical and current CFL artifacts. Everything from current player lockers from all CFL teams, to vintage Grey Cup and CFL highlights playing on high definition television, the train itself was a piece of Canadian football history and was more of a museum than a train car. The train car also featured a cabin that had former Grey Cups and memorabilia as well as information and murals of famous and infamous Grey Cup moments to educate a younger generation on the country’s highest football trophy. The Grey Cup itself was a main attraction as the trophy needed to be stored outside due to the sheer congestion of the event, which attracted roughly over five hundred people. The day also served a fundraising purpose as Dow Agrosciences had a fundraiser in conjunction with the Food Grains Bank at the event. Dow Agrosciences went to six farming communities as conjunction with the tour and also has a facebook page for the “Nexera Thank You Train” according to Loralee Orr. Orr mentioned that for every “like” on the facebook page that $2 would be donated to the Food Grains Bank with a final goal of $5, 000. Orr says the page is a huge part of the train as it helps those who are less fortunate have food to eat and helps out with the support they give the food bank throughout the year. Dow Agrosciences said that they were thankful for the opportunity to partner up with the CFL and farming communities in the train tour as well as for the opportunity to thank local farmers as well as raise money for charity at the event. Dow Agrosciences also had a tent event where kids could throw at a target for a chance to win $100 of CFL merchandise. The event was a major attraction despite being during the day on a Tuesday and generated a lot of city excitement and also featured the YRHS marching band which performed several compositions for all those on hand. The YRHS junior and senior football teams were also on hand attending the event.

THE NEWS REVIEW - Thursday, October 4, 2012 - Page 17A
Rapid fire rants: Riders, NFL, MLB playoffs, NBA camps October is supposed to be the beginning of the NHL season (it actually starts next week technically, sorry if I put anyone on a ledge with that reminder) to add to an already packed month of sports in what is one of the busiest times of the sports schedule. NBA training camps started on Monday, the NFL and American college football are in full gear and in Canada the CFL is in a full fledged playoff race, and of course the MLB playoffs are an early October staple. So after a few weeks hiatus it is time top turn on the clock and get into Ruttig’s Rants: Rapid Fire Edition. On Saturday I took the benefit of not having anything to cover at night and having Rider tickets and headed to Taylor Field for what was a pivotal game for the Riders as they hosted the Western Division Lions. The Riders had early season success against B.C. at Taylor Field and after a win against Calgary had a chance to build some momentum going into the regular season’s final month. The Riders took advantage of great pass coverage on defense and a legendary performance from Weston Dressler which included two second half
touchdowns as well as a third one called back in what was one of the best Rider receiving performances in the past two seasons. Of course things got interesting as they always do and after what seemed like a game winning touchdown followed by some “B.C. Sucks” chants turned into a six point Rider lead with ample time for Travis Lulay, the Riders needed their defense to step up one more time. They did just that and secured the win in what was a turning point for the Riders season and helped them out massively in gaining confidence heading into the standings and playoff race in October. After a hot start to the season followed by some roadblocks, it is hard to tell if this Rider team has the magic of all the great Rider teams of the 00’s that always made things interesting and were constantly knocking on the door to crash the Grey Cup or Western Division Finals party. One thing is for sure though, these Riders have the fight and the confidence that last year’s rendition sorely lacked. As for the American league, the NFL hosted Week Four action as teams playoff pictures continue to take shape. The Houston Texans sur-
Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig vived undefeated after a dominant performance against the Titans, the New York Jets look like they might not make the playoffs this season as they received a thrashing at the hands of NFC contenders San Francisco. The defending champion Giants did not fare much better as a missed last second field goal by Lawrence Tynes gave them a second loss of the season on the road to NFC East rivals Philadelphia. Monday Night Football saw the Chicago Bears make a statement to a tight NFC North that includes hot starts from the Vikings, Packers, and Lions with a defensive clinic against the Cowboys. After four weeks the NFL looks as even as ever and with a return to the real referees it is nice to see a return to a product that never fails to disappoint. While the NFL season
heats up, it was time for the NBA to finally lace up the sneakers and kick off their training camps in anticipation for the beginning of the season. New faces are all over this season as Dwight Howard and Steve Nash head to Los Angeles to build a superteam to rival the Miami Heat, who also added a star of their own in alltime 3 point leader Ray Allen in the offseason. However, it is the team Nash spurned that intrigues me the most as Canada’s, and my team, the Toronto Raptors opened their training camp with high hopes and saying all the right things. They have a new point guard and shooting guard in Kyle Lowry and Landry Fields and a team that is dead set on making the playoffs, not just improving. With one of the league’s best defenses last season and a healthy An-
drea Bargnani looking for an 82 game season this year, the Raptors may just be able to get back on the post-Chris Bosh playoff schedule early than expected. Speaking of playoffs it is October which means it is time for the MLB playoffs. With two one game playoffs to determine the Wild Card places in this year’s playoffs it is hard to give a full comprehensive preview of the series which start on the weekend. However it will be exciting to see teams like the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals play must win baseball for the first time in years as they both are guaranteed a role in October. The Nationals have already shut down pitching prodigy Stephen Strasburg for the year to preserve is arm in a controversial decision that has severely hurt the Nationals odds as favorites to win the NL pennant which will serve die hard former Expos fans just fine as the sting of them winning a World Series might just be too much for some Canadians to bear. At the time of writing the evil empire that is the New York Yankees are in a battle for first place in the AL East with the Orioles to avoid the one game Wild Card playoff and will once again be expecting a
return to the World Series. With potential one of the best lineups from 1-9 and clutch role players like Eric Chavez and Ichiro Suzuki hungry for their first ever World Series ring. They look like they might just anger the baseball world with another run at the title. However the Texas Rangers do have bats of their own as well as the last two American League pennants and will want to take the monkey off their back and prove that the third time is the charm this postseason. The team that I will be pulling for in the play in game and the playoffs will be the Atlanta Braves and Chipper Jones. Jones has been one of the National League’s best players for the better part of two decades and is one of the most stand up guys in baseball. The Braves have had attendance issues for years now, but Turner Field was sold out for every single one of the last series of the regular season and Jones received a standing ovation on numerous occasions. The Braves might not even make it into the real deal after the Wild Card game, but they will be the team to watch as a true legend says goodbye to the game in the only way that fits. In a Braves uniform in October.
Lady Saints soccer post strong road weekends By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
With the high school soccer provincial playoffs kicking off this month, the Sacred Heart Saints girls soccer team finished September off strong in road tournaments in Moose Jaw and Prince Albert. With a B Side championship in the 16 team Noose Jaw tournament and a bronze medal in Prince Albert the Saints got valuable match experience against top 3A high schools as well as rival 2A sides in their preparation for provincial qualifiers and likely the provincial tournament later in the month. In Moose Jaw the Saints girls won their first two games, including a second half comeback to win 2-1 against Weyburn before losing to Regina Leboldus in the third round robin game, sending them to the B Side. In the B Side playoffs the Saints dispatched Evan Hardy 2-1 in the semi-final from two goals from Rita Fetsch be-
fore setting up a rematch from their home tournament with Prince Albert St. Mary’s. In the rematch of their 1-nil defeat the Saints benefited from the return of Fetsch, who potted two goals in the 2-2 game, sending it to penalty kicks where the Saints prevailed. The win was the Saints first ever against PA St. Mary’s and gave the Saints the highest finish of all the 2A schools in the tournament and an impressive showing against schools reaching almost four times the size of Sacred Heart’s enrollment. In a five game in two day stretch coach Jeanne Fetsch likened the weekend in Moose Jaw to “running a marathon” and was impressed with her teams effort in a difficult tournament trip for her squad. Kaitlin Inglis and Kristen Jonassen played remarkable on defense all weekend, and Shayla Merriam played strong in midfield in what was the highest finish for the Saints in Moose Jaw. The following weekend the Saints
headed up to Prince Albert where the Saints once again went to compete against top 3A competition to prepare for their 2A playoff run. The Saints opened the weekend with a 8-1 drubbing of the PA Carlton B team with six goals from Fetsch as well as Kaylee Ford and Lauren Maier markers, the win set up a third game of the season with Prince Albert St. Mary’s and an opportunity to advance to the tournament finals. However a second straight win over St. Mary’s was not in the cards as the home team won 3-nil and sent the Saints to the bronze medal game where they beat Lloydminster 1-nil to secure a medal and finish the weekend with another winning record. The tournament put the Saints record at the season at 7-4, playing mostly upper division 3A schools, giving them a added advantage of playing tougher competition heading into their 2A provincial title quest. Shayla Merriam
was praised in moving from midfield to centreback in place of the regular starter on the weekend and doing an admirable job out of position. Rookie Taneisha Roussin and defender Connor Rosluk also earned praise from coach Fetsch for their performances in Prince Albert The Saints are still undefeated in their own 2A level of SHSAA schools and have competed in close matches with some of the best 3A schools in the province, showing that they are a skilled and competitive side that will be top class in their category at the end of the month when regional playoffs begin. The Saints now look to work in practice to maintain match fitness as well as improve on skills in preparation for their playoff fixtures at the end of the month. Friendlies against the YRHS and Hamiota to continue to get match experience in.

The Saints bid for first place in the East Central 9 Man Football division came to an abrupt halt on Thursday afternoon as the Foam Lake Panthers put together a dominant performance at Sacred Heart. Head coach Trent Senger felt that the loss came down to physicality on the line as the Panthers offensive and defensive linemen dictated most of the play off the line of scrimmage. Senger also mentioned that he felt that they would be in for a tough game as the Panthers are currently unbeaten and the Saints are a younger squad that is still learning to match the physicality and aggression the Panthers brought. The Saints now look to battle with the

Melville MCS Cobras for second place and the home field advantage in a game that will likely feature the two rivals again once the regular season ends. Senger says the key to the rematch in Melville is aggression and that the Saints will need to be aggressive in practice to prepare to match what the Cobras will bring on their home turf Thursday. Offensive line play will also be a key as the Saints will need to give their quarterback more time to execute in the offense than in their loss. The Saints looked much better in their home win over Melville in what was an evenly matched contest to the final whistle. Home field advantage will be on the line between the two rival schools in what is billed as, “the game of the season.” At 4:30 p.m. in Melville the playoff picture of both schools will start to look a little clearer.

That extra nip in the fall air provides an early warning that increased vigilance is required to protect your family from carbon monoxide, known as the “silent killer”. For one Ontario man, it is an especially stark reminder. In late 2008 John Gignac, a retired firefighter, lost his niece, her husband and their two children to carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. A blocked chimney vent forced the deadly gas from their gas fireplace back into their home. Since then, Gignac has established the Hawkins-Gignac Foundation for CO Education and spends his retirement imploring others to protect themselves from CO with one simple step: installing a CSAapproved carbon monoxide alarm. “My niece Laurie Hawkins and her family had no chance because they did not have a CO alarm,” Gignac says. “If they did, they would still be with us today.” Carbon monoxide is colourless, odourless and tasteless. So without a CO alarm, humans cannot detect its presence. Despite the average home having several potential sources of the deadly gas, studies show that nearly 60 per cent of Canadians have not installed a CO alarm. “Over the past four years I have spoken to dozens of groups and hundreds of people and the comments are almost always the same,” Gignac says. People tell me they don’t need a carbon monoxide alarm because they have electric heat. But when I ask them if they have a gas appliance or water heater, or a wood-burning or gas fireplace, or a garage or carport attached to their house, they all get a horrified look on their face. Because any one of
those can be a source of CO and their families have been at risk for years.” In addition to being impossible to detect, CO also has another nefarious trait. Symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure mimic the flu, without the fever. It is routinely responsible for thousands of clinic and hospital visits each year, and is commonly misdiagnosed. Prolonged or extreme exposure causes nausea, dizziness, confusion, the loss of physical mobility, brain damage and
ultimately, death. Gignac offers these five CO safety steps: • Have a licensed inspector check heating systems and other fuelburning appliances, including fireplaces, every year. • Install one CSA-approved CO alarm on each storey of your home and outside all sleeping areas. • Check outside to make sure all exhaust flues and vents are not obstructed. • Replace CO alarms every 7-10
years depending on the manufacturer, whether battery operated or hardwired. • Change batteries at least once a year. “Most CO alarms cost in the range of $30, just about 2 cents a day over their lifespan, a nominal price to pay for the safety of yourself and your family,” Gignac adds. More carbon monoxide safety tips are available online at www. endthesilence.ca. www.newscanada.com

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.
