Healthy work places – Sunrise sick times improve

BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS – It’s Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) Month in Yorkton, and a flag raising was held to commemorate the event. Pictured above (l-r) are Bob Maloney with the City of Yorkton, Irma Van de Bon, Executive Director BBBS, Amanda Ring and Abhinav Bhargav, also with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Yorkton and area. Van de Bon says she hopes to see more people become a mentor over the month, and make a difference in the lives of kids.

Crosswalk art lends safety and appeal to city streets By SHANNON DEVEAU N-R Writer

A project to use crosswalk art was proposed by YBID and it’s hoped the new, catchy designs will draw attention to crossing areas for both drivers and pedestrians. While it isn’t found in other Saskatchewan cities and possibly not in Canada, crosswalk art is being used successfully internationally

It’s appealing to the eyes, an opportunity for creativity and at the same time, will help to create a safer environment for local residents. The City of Yorkton has approved a plan for new crosswalk designs at eight intersections in the city. The result of a partnership developed between the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery and YBID (Yorkton Business Improvement District), the initiative is intended to both beautify and to heighten awareness of crosswalks. “Yorkton is growing and traffic is increasing...” said Don Stein, Executive Director of the Godfrey Dean Gallery to Yorkton City Council Monday evening. “While the city is doing a good job and traffic is well managed, there are occasional clashes of driving cultures, pedestrian and traffic safety in all municipalities.”

to respond to traffic and pedestrian safety issues says Stein. “Bold and colorful designs draw attention...” To date three designs have been selected – piano keys, forks and knives and neckties. An additional sunflower design is also in the works. It’s hoped they will be incorporated into the city by the end of September in time for Culture Days which takes place from September 28-30. A test section has already been completed behind the Godfrey Dean and close examination shows the designs are practical and will stand up. The cost of the changes will be covered by the gallery however council’s approval is required for all public art as it has a direct impact on public perception of the city. New crosswalk designs will be implemented at the intersections of Broadway and Dalebrooke, Gladstone, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Avenues, as well as on Smith Street at 2nd, 3rd and 4th Avenue intersections.

There’s still room for improvement but the Sunrise Health Region (SHR) reports a problem with employee sick time is getting better. The involvement of front-line health care workers is being credited for the advancement. “Although we still have a way to go, it is very encouraging that sick time rates have reduced significantly since these new strategies were implemented,” says President and CEO of the SHR, Suann Laurent. In 2011-12 the health region paid 92.12 hours per full-time equivalent, at a cost to the health system of over 5.6 million dollars. The 2012-13 target was budgeted at 82.44 paid sick hours per full-time equivalent. To the end of June 2012, the projected annual paid sick time hours were 74.88 per full-time equivalent. “Most health care employees have excellent attendance records and we want to support their continued good health,” adds Laurent. “We believe that all employees want to help reduce illness and injury in the workplace and need access to related statistics, since absences affect everyone in the workplace.” Statistical monitoring walls are located in all facilities to provide information related to absence call-in procedures and attendance management as well as modified duties supports which are available to employees. The walls provide a location for managers and frontline employees to view and discuss regional and department statistics and suggestions about how to reduce injury rates and improve employee health.

Blitz creates a safer Sask. It’s all about safety. Saskatchewan’s RCMP say this month’s traffic safety blitz, Operation Student Safety, saw 293 tickets issued to motorists speeding in school zones over Sept. 4 and 5, the first two days of back-to-school for students across the province. As of Sept. 7, law enforcement across the province have reported issuing a total of 345 tickets to motorists

throughout the blitz, including 293 for speeding in school zones, 16 for improper or non-seatbelt use, six for using handheld cellphones behind the wheel and 30 tickets for other various offences. “The purpose of the monthly traffic safety blitzes, coordinated by SGI and law enforcement partners, is to raise awareness of various traffic safety issues and promote safe driving

habits for all Saskatchewan motorists,” says Rebecca Rogoschewsky, Manager, Media Relations. Last month’s Operation Crossroads 2.0 resulted in 516 tickets being issued to Saskatchewan motorists, including 216 for improper or non-seatbelt use, 51 for cellphone use while driving, 38 for disobeying red lights or stop signs and nearly 90 for speeding.

HELPING LOCAL CHILDREN – There’s no snow on the ground yet, but Snowarama is coming up, and there was a barbecue to help kick off the event’s 36th year. This year’s event takes place on February 9, 2013 beginning at the Gallagher Centre. This year’s big prize sled is a 2013 Ski-Doo. The kickoff event featured gourmet smokies and a live band to entertain the hungry guests. Deana Jesmer, Community Relations Coordinator for the Saskatchewan Abilities Council, says that the early kickoff was inspired by a new sponsor, Century 21. She says they thought it would

be good to announce the event with something that could bring out the community and raise a bit of money for Easter Seals. The event raised about $800 total. Jesmer also says that the community support for the event has always been fantastic, and that last year was proof, when people still raise over $130,000 even without snow. “Hopefully we have a whole dump of snow this year so that goal can be met and beat,” she concludes. Pictured above, Snowarama Ambassador Bailey Clark (seated) helps launch the latest Snowarama campaign.

34th Sunflower event a Yorkton success Cardboard art: thinking outside the typical box “People think cardboard is cardboard, but it’s all different.”

By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer When most people see a piece of cardboard, whether it’s a box, a tube, or just a flat piece, they don’t see much more than a way to pack things. Terry Obst of To-Do Cardboarding sees potential, and has been making cardboard art and furniture as result. Obst was on hand at the 34th annual Sunflower Art and Craft show held in Yorkton over the weekend to exhibit his wares. The artist says he began working with cardboard because he wanted to start making things again, and also it was something unique which not many people were using. From the art, which is silhouettes on a corrugated background, to the furniture, it was something unique that he was able to start putting together. Cardboard isn’t often used for things such as tables and chairs, yet Obst has also made entertainment centres and cupboards out of the material. He says that once he’s done, it’s as durable as any other furniture out there. “It’s very strong, sit on it and you’ll see how strong it is. Laminate it together, glue it together, reinforce it with struts and it’s very strong,” he says. When creating any of his

CARDBOARD can be used for many things, and Terry Obst of To-Do Cardboarding has found more uses still. The Yorkton resident makes furniture and artwork out of the ubiquitous material. cardboard projects Obst has to start from scratch, he says, as there are no plans out there and not very many people do it. He says that as he works with the material

more, he is able to get more ambitious with his plans and is getting better at knowing the strengths and potential of the material. The average project takes

half a day and Obst says he gets most of his material from businesses in town. He also points out that cardboard is an instantly recognizable material, and that

helps to generate interest. “Everybody knows cardboard, and everybody knows the work that goes into it,” he adds. The material is varied as well, Obst admits, and he says that each project requires something a bit different, whether it’s the double-corrugated material for the furniture in order to get strength, or a smoother style to get a nice surface for the artwork. “People think cardboard is cardboard, but it’s all different. Cardboard is single, double, soft, hard. It comes in all different shapes and sizes.” The Sunflower event was Obst’s first sale since starting working with cardboard, and he says that over the weekend interest was building, as it was something people had not seen before. To see more of Obst’s cardboard creations, he invites people to get in touch with him, either by phone at 7820957 or by email at obst@

Sky is not the limit for Trail’s End Buffalo Stix: space bound By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer Normally when a snack promises “out of this world” flavor it’s a statement that can’t be verified. Trail’s End Buffalo Stix, on the other hand, can back it up. The Saskatchewan-based company makes Cranberry Craze, a Buffalo jerky with cranberries, which has been

selected as part of the Snacks for Space program, and will be making a trip up to the International Space Station. Visitors at the Sunflower Arts and Craft Sale were able to sample their wares. Judy Wilkinson, owner, says that her product was selected as part of Snacks for Space. Chris Hatfield, the first Canadian commander of

the International Space Station, wants to showcase Canadian products during his mission, and put together the Snacks for Space program to share with the other astronauts. Wilkinson says that she was surprised to be selected as part of the program, because she admits that she didn’t know it was happening at the time. Anyone in Canada could suggest a snack, and according to Wilkinson theirs was recommended by a man named Jeff in Edmonton, who she admits they don’t know. Thirty-nine Canadians suggested 150 different snacks for the program. It was selected as one of twelve snacks to make the trip because it met the rigorous requirements, both for food going to the space station and

the round of taste tests conducted by the crew. Wilkinson says that while she’s not clear on all the requirements, the jerky’s virtues apply both on the earth and off it. “I guess it’s just really good! It meets all the guidelines, it’s made in a federal facility which is very important, it’s easy to handle, it’s soft, it’s easy to chew, it’s just delicious, that’s all there is to it,” Wilkinson says. Getting selected as part of the mission has been a boon for the company, as regular customers are getting excited and sending messages of support, while new customers are more curious about trying out the product. For Wilkinson herself, she says that it’s something that she finds inspiring. “I cut every single stick,

so to me it’s something I touched is going to be in space, I can’t really wrap my head around it,” Wilkinson says. This is one of the high points of a business that began in 2004, when the Wilkinsons decided to make a jerky that few had seen before, taking on an unexpected flavor with cranberry and having a hit. “My husband and I, we decided that we wanted to create a healthy snack. We wanted something different from traditional

jerky, more targeted towards women and kids, something easy to chew and soft,” Wilkinson says. It has been a good weekend, Wilkinson says, and she notes that some sizes sold out completely by the second day. For those interested in trying it out, Wilkinson encourages people to visit their website, at www. Hatfield and the crew will be leaving on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft in December of this year.

Partnering for a new west It’s a brand new west and Saskatchewan is at the helm. The Premiers of Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Alberta are playing hosts this week to a New West Partnership (NWP) reception in China during the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting of the New Champions. “We achieve so much more when we work together,” says Saskatchewan’s Premier Brad Wall. Truer words have never been spoken. “Whether it is eliminating barriers to trade and growth among our provinces, or unlocking our potential by promoting our region’s tremendous trade and investment opportunities internationally.” “The New West Partnership proves that the best way to provide jobs for families and longterm prosperity is to work together to create an investment-friendly business market that harmonizes regulation and reduces red tape,” British Columbia Premier Christy Clark adds. “Our three provinces are economic leaders in Canada with the regional advantages to open up key markets across the Asia Pacific and around the world.” The New West Partnership was signed in 2010 and according to the provincial government it has led to the implementation of a number of growth-friendly initiatives, including commitments to pursue international co-operation, innovation and joint government purchasing. Partnering for the benefit of all involved just makes good business sense. Let’s hope the positive momentum continues.

You want to be saved? Look within

They’re behind bars for good reasons and if you ask me, if it gets to that point, they should have to forfeit their so called ‘rights and privileges’ – at least those that will cost we the taxpayers added money. Last week Canada’s Public Safety Minister, Vic Toews, cancelled a Corrections Canada tender for a priest to nurture the spiritual needs of “witches” in prison. A good move I’d say. Prior to the cancellation a federal prison agency in BC had put out a request for a proposal for a Wiccan chaplain who would provide about 17 hours of service a month. The added touch to the prison would translate into a $25,000 to $50,000 annual price tag for Canadian taxpayers. Not that large of an amount in the grande scheme of things, but is it really necessary? As Canadian citizens, people absolutely have the right to choose whatever religion and belief system they like, but as far as I’m concerned, you and I shouldn’t have to foot the bill for their specialty services. These people got themselves behind bars by their own actions so maybe this is the time for them to reflect within. If the Wiccan advocates are so convinced of the benefits and necessity of these services, then maybe

they should do their part to muster up a dedicated volunteer or two to visit the inmates. Apparently a fair amount is also spent on other religious services. According to the Corrections Canada tender that’s specific to Roman Catholic Shannon Deveau B.C., chaplaincy services average five hours per week. Both Muslim and Sikh chaplaincy averages 57.83 hours per month, while Buddist chaplaincy averages 45 hours. Jewish chaplaincy averages 17.5 hours per month, while a designation called Community Chaplaincy averages 30 hours. Obviously taxpayer dollars are entering the picture to make this happen. It’s not that I’m antireligion or that I believe there are no benefits, but were do we draw the line? People are spiritual beings and really, that comes from within no matter what your setting or surroundings. Will drawing a pentacle on your cell floor and chanting with a wiccan priest change your ways? Maybe, but my bet is you have to want to change yourself and consciously make the effort to cause it to happen. If the representatives of these organizations truly want to help “their people” then a government pay cheque shouldn’t be their sole motivation to do so.

The way I see it... Column

It’s the most expensive paper bag in the world Fashion designer Jil Sander is a genius. Not because I have any particular affection for her fashion, but because she has managed to use her brand to separate fools from their money in a most amusing manner. This time, she has outdone herself, with the introduction of a designer paper bag. So, what separates this paper bag from the common lunch bag people are familiar with? Well, this one is made of 100 per cent coated paper, and has stitched seams. So it’s made of the same materials as a regular paper bag, just put together in a slightly more labor intensive manner. The designer bag also has “Jil Sander” stamped on it, which is probably the most important designer touch of all. She calls it the “Vasari bag” and is selling it for a large sum of money. Now, given that normal paper lunch bags come in bundles of twenty or thirty for a couple of dollars a pack, it’s not difficult to make a more expensive version. Sander’s version, however, takes the paper bag to a new level, as the price is $290. For that amount of money you could buy thousands of paper bags, possibly using them to build some kind of throne in order to declare yourself the emperor of paper. Or just one, with a designer label attached to it, which seems like a bad use of money.

Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger This isn’t a first for Sander, who released an acetate shopping bag last year which was modeled after a bag you get for free from most stores. The designer is laughing all the way to the bank, as her paper bag is selling out in stores. People are going in, putting down enough money to buy all manner of exciting things, in order to buy a luxury version of what some kids carry their lunch to school in. As I said, the woman is a genius, possibly an evil genius. She has recognized that a designer label can induce a certain type of person to buy almost anything, and has also seen that the novelty of an over-priced item can bring people out who want to show off in a slight-

ly silly manner. She’s taken it to levels never seen before, since she’s not actually improving on the cheap version in any appreciable way. The bag is not covered in expensive jewels, it’s not made of fine materials, it’s not especially labor intensive and there is no competitive advantage over a multitude of less expensive bags. It is just an object made expensive by attaching her name to it, and people are buying it. In the process, she has made a mockery of the entire concept of fashion and designer labels, revealing that people are driven not by what looks best or what makes sense, but by whose name is on the tag. She is making fun of her own customers, the very people who finance her label and have allowed it to be able to charge $290 for a paper bag. She is making fun of the industry which employs her, and is making a strange artistic statement that has succeeded with the very people she is openly mocking. I would never buy it, and don’t think anyone else should buy it either, but I do appreciate it. Whatever the intent, it has cut to the core of everything wrong with fashion, style and the people who have more money than sense. It is a hilarious expression of what happens when people have more money than sense. Not bad for something that looks like a prominent designer labeling her lunch.

Zero support for no-zero policy Dairy has come

To the Editor:

High School physics teacher Lynden Dorval probably never expected to become a celebrity. But with his decision to defy his principal’s no-zeros edict, he ignited a nation-wide debate about grading practices in schools. Under no-zero grading policies, teachers are forbidden from assigning grades of zero to students for assignments they do not submit. Public response on this issue has been overwhelmingly on Dorval’s side. Students rallied to his defense, teachers spoke out in support of his position, and newspaper pages were filled with letters attacking the no-zero policy. Even an online poll conducted by the Edmonton Journal reported that more than 97 per cent of the 12,486 respondents opposed the no-zero policy. Largely in response to public pressure, Edmonton Public School Board trustees voted at their June meeting to conduct an extensive review of their assessment practices. The review is scheduled to commence in September. Hopefully, trustees will take the time to carefully review the research evidence on no-zero policies. If they do, they’ll find that the evidence does not support the overblown claims made by no-zero supporters. One of the best-known no-zero advocates is Ken O’Connor, an assessment consultant in Ontario. In his book How to Grade for Learning, O’Connor claims that zeros cause students to withdraw from learning. However, the only source he cites to back up this claim is an article in the NASSP Bulletin by Thomas Guskey, an education professor at the University of Kentucky. Guskey does make the statement attributed to him by O’Connor but cites only one research study to support this claim - a 1992 article in the British Columbia Journal of

Special Education by Deborah Selby and Sharon Murphy. In it, Selby and Murphy describe the experiences of six learning-disabled students in mainstream classrooms. These six students had negative experiences with letter grades and blamed themselves for their poor marks. It should be obvious that it is absurd to generalize the experiences of six learning-disabled students to the rest of the student population. And yet this article is regularly cited by Guskey when he makes the

es to use a no-zero policy, it can expect that controversy will likely overshadow other more important initiatives. School administrators need to ask themselves whether a no-zero policy is worth the opposition they are certain to face. No-zero policies also unreasonably interfere with the professional discretion of teachers to determine grades. Teachers know their students and realize that it is unrealistic to expect the same strategies to work with every student. All a no-zero policy does is take away one of the consequences teachers can use for students who fail to submit their work. Students who submit their work on time could actually end up receiving worse grades than those who submit only some assignments. Since no-zero policies prohibit teachers from giving a zero for incomplete work, a student who hands in an assignment and receives a mark of 30 per cent would actually have been better off not to submit it. In fact, students will figure out that it is in their best interest to pick and choose the assignments they submit. Finally, no-zero policies fail to prepare students for life after high school. Employees don’t get paid for doing nothing and universities don’t grant credit to students who choose not to hand in their assignments. A pilot who never flies a plane, an electrician who never wires a house, and a journalist who never hands in a story can all expect to get paid nothing. Employers aren’t going to accommodate employees who can’t be bothered to submit their work. Teachers need to prepare their students for this reality. Let’s hope trustees in Edmonton and elsewhere across Canada recognize the folly of no-zero policies and stay away from them.

“ policies fail to prepare students for life after high school. Employees don’t get paid for doing nothing and universities don’t grant credit to students who choose not to hand in their assignments...” claim that grades of zero have a negative impact on students. Even a more recent article by Guskey that appeared in the November 2011 edition of Educational Leadership contains the same claim, with Selby and Murphy’s article again providing the only research support. Clearly, the claim that research evidence strongly supports nozero policies is flawed. No-zero proponents cannot hide behind the research argument since the evidence for their position is quite weak. In addition, there are many reasons why school administrators should avoid no-zero policies. One is that they inevitably bring controversy with them, something acknowledged by even their strongest proponents. If a school choos-

Meaningful MS action is painfully slow

To the Editor:

As many as 75,000 Canadians suffer from Multiple Sclerosis (MS). This summer has brought them both good news and bad. On the good side, clinical trials have now begun which will eventually involve more than 80 people from Saskatchewan in a test of the validity of “liberation therapy” as a treatment for symptoms associated with MS. Funded by the Saskatchewan government and spread over the next two years, these people will travel to medical facilities in New York where about half will actually receive the con-

troversial therapy, while the others get a placebo. Participants won’t know which is which, so the results of the therapy can be measured in a totally impartial manner. Liberation therapy focuses on abnormalities in the venous system, using a process similar to angioplasty. Some 3,000 Canadians have sought this treatment abroad. It’s not available in Canada and hasn’t yet been proven effective. The trials in New York will help determine once and for all whether liberation therapy works. Kudos to Saskatchewan for trying to get reliable answers. On the bad side, the

federal government continues to drags its feet. Over 14 months ago, the feds promised to conduct nation-wide Canadian clinical trials on liberation therapy, but they’re still stuck at the starting gate. Meanwhile, federal authorities seem quite willing to fast track certain new drugs for the treatment of MS, some of which have checkered histories with drug approval agencies in Europe, the United States and elsewhere. Why does the government jump so readily to the tune of big-pharma, while ignoring so many MS patients themselves? It remains exceedingly

difficult for those 3,000 Canadians who have sought some relief from MS – and some hope for the future – by pursuing liberation treatments in foreign countries (the US, Italy, Bulgaria, Mexico, etc.). Back home, they’re too often ostracized and can’t get proper monitoring or follow-up care. All those 3,000 cases should have been carefully tracked from Day-One – what a trial sample that would have produced! And surely, basic human compassion calls for decent on-going care and attention once they get home. Ralph Goodale, MP, Wascana, SK.

They knowingly broke the law – what’s next? To the Editor: Herb Pinder’s Op-Ed (Leader Post Aug 17/12) criticism of Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) and Johnstone’s article, stating his concern of the “well-being of our farm producers” is an oxymoron if there ever was one. Pinder, a “longtime director of Viterra” (SWP) was part of the demise of the Crow Rate ($1.00 per bushel transferred from farmers pockets to the Railways); removal of Oats from CWB

(another $1.00 per bushel from oat producers pockets to grain companies coffers); and the crowning glory the outright theft of the cooperative Saskatchewan Wheat Pool from the farmer-owners. My, such concern! If Pinder is so concerned about “democracy being eroded”, the method Harper Ritz & David Anderson used to destroy the CWB should set off all kinds of whistles and alarm bells! As should his pardoning of those criminals who

broke the Customs Act and stole the impounded equipment. Under the Customs Act export licenses are required, be it an oil producer, car manufacturer or grain producer. These individuals willingly, knowingly and deliberately broke a law of Canada. What’s next? A pardon for Clifford Olson or Robert Picton? Joyce Neufeld Waldeck, SK.

a long way To the Editor: In review of the Letter to the Editor on supply management dated August 30, I find some very shortsighted arguments. It’s too bad the authors didn’t take the time to go back to the past to see what dairy industry was like then and how much more efficient it has become today. Numerous plants have disappeared to make processing more efficient and to provide a cheaper product. A lot of young farmers have left to find better paying lifestyles that doesn’t require 24/7 involvement. I was able to start dairying then but only with tremendous help from my family, 16-hour days, foregoing most extracurricular entertainment and other sacrifices. The return for my labour today is less than three per cent return on my investment. I am glad that some politicians had the vision to create supply management. I am impressed that the authors recognize the value of dairy products for our health and well-being. It is why the US Government invests many subsidies into its farm and dairy sector. Several unreported factors behind the cost of milk include the cost to processor for shelf space in supermarket and that they decide what they charge for food. The authors could have found out that American farmers and processors pay less for inputs than their Canadian counterparts, or maybe consider how Canadian farmers take care of animal health and welfare, environment, sustainability, etc; all to put a better product on the shelf. As for the dairy commission being led by a dairy farmer or processor, I don’t see the Roughriders hiring a coach that has limited football knowledge or cities hiring police chiefs that have no knowledge of policing? Suggesting that farmers do not compete in the industry is ludicrous. I buy all my commodities locally; pay my power bills, my taxes are up 37 per cent this past year. When I hire employees I have to compete with the construction sector, the oil patch, mining, plus on top of this I pay a bonus to my employees because they have to start at 4 a.m. In Warman, I drive past Tim Hortons where there’s always a 10-car line up idling for 15 minutes for coffee. What is the real cost of that cup? Isaac Klassen Dairy Producer, Osler, SK.

THE NEWS REVIEW - Thursday, September 13, 2012 - Page 7A

The farmer is trained, moves on and settles in Submitted by Kaare Askildt, former Preeceville area farmer in training. This is the 13th of a series on getting settled in Hazel Dell. My oh my! I met double D yesterday! I’m not talking about a baby’s milk containers or some unmentionable women’s under garment, but Donna and Darwin (double D) Chalupiak. Donna works with my wife at Preeceville Home Hardware. They brought their daughter and two grandchildren out for some horsing around! Even grandma Donna got on a horse! I have had some problems starting my tractor after the heavy rains. It’s parked in the yard until we get the storage addition built on to the barn, so it is exposed to the elements. I believe the moisture has created a short somewhere, draining the batteries, as the batteries seemed dead. Boosting the batteries didn’t work, so Darwin and I were using the charger/booster to explore different ways of getting power directly to the starter, but nothing. All we were able to get was a hum. We packed away the booster/charger. Then I noticed a knob switch mounted low on the control panel, and nowhere in the operations manual could I find a description of this switch. It has a white line on it, and the line was pointing straight up. However, it could be turned so the line pointed to the left or to the right. Hmm, I chose turning it to the left, and jiminy cricket; there was power, the starter cranked over and the engine fired! Great! I called our neighbour Mike, and we picked up some more hay bales that afternoon. The high winds caused the roots of a spruce tree at my brother in law’s house in Preeceville to pull out of the ground, and it was leaning extremely close to the neighbour’s house. After discussing the matter with SaskPower, it was concluded that the responsibility for removing the tree rested with the owners of the properties. The supervisor from

Dinner with a dragon

It’s going to be an exciting evening and tickets are selling fast. The Yorkton Chamber of Commerce has announced the guest speaker for its annual Chamber Business Dinner which is fast approaching, is Bruce Croxon, a Dragon on CBC’s Dragon’s Den and the founder of Lavalife. The Dinner will be held Wednesday, October 3 at St. Mary’s Cultural Centre. Tickets and tables are now available for sale and they include a Platinum Table which is available for one business. Seated at this table will be guest speaker Bruce Croxon. To order tables or tickets, contact the Chamber office at 7834368.

SaskPower provided us with the phone number to a tree removal expert that they use. We made arrangements for the tree expert and his assistant to come and take care of the problem. The spruce tree was about 70 feet tall, so I was quite concerned how they would handle the task. Not to worry, they arrived with a large picker truck, which the neighbour allowed to be parked in her driveway. The main man climbed up into the

bucket, and with the hydraulic telescopic arm, zoomed up to the top of the tree. He proceeded to cut off all the branches right down to the bottom of the trunk, with the telescopic arm and bucket leaning over the neighbour’s roof. He would cut off a couple of branches, and then toss them on to the lawns from aloft with pinpoint accuracy! Then they rigged up a block and tackle which they fastened in the tree next to the leaner, fas-

tened the rope to the trunk of the leaner, cut off four feet and lowered it to the ground with the block and tackle. Repeated the procedure until there was only seventeen feet standing. The last seventeen feet were cut at the ground level and with ropes they laid it on the lawn without hitting any other bushes! Bravo! I recall a situation from many years ago; my wife and I were attending a ventriloquist show. It was quite humorous, and the


performer went through his routine, cracking many jokes, in particular blonde jokes. Towards the end of the show he got on to the topic of trees, and his little knee doll asked the ventriloquist: “Do you know what the beaver said to the tree?” “No, I don’t,” he answered. “The beaver said its been nice gnawing you!” said the knee doll. The knee doll went on to ask: “What do you call a blonde with a briefcase sitting on a tree limb?” “I

don’t know,” answered the ventriloquist. “A branch manager!” laughed the knee doll. At this point a blonde in the back of the audience stood up and shouted: “That’s enough already with the blonde jokes! We are people too and we are also intelligent and have feelings!” “You’re quite right madam,” answered the ventriloquist. “You shut up and stay out of it!” shouted the blonde. “I’m not talking to you! I’m talking to that little jerk on your knee!”

Breakfast ideas: transform your experience On many occasions I have mentioned great ways to transform your dinner making experience into a special event, like pouring a glass of wine and putting on some great music, but what about breakfast? Isn’t this the most important meal of the day? Yes, to most health professionals it is, so this column is dedicated to making that pinnacle feast into something extraordinary. I understand that a vast percentage of the population have “day jobs” and that making a spectacular breakfast on a weekday is far from being at the top of your priority list. These ideas are more geared towards your days off or if you work evenings. This is the perfect circumstance to forget about the bowl of cold cereal or toast and jam, and blow the dust off some old cookbooks to

try something new. One of my wife’s favorite breakfast pastimes is making and perfecting different pancake recipes from around the world. It seems that every walk of life has their own version of what we know as the traditional North American pancake. Making it a tradition to do a different pancake recipe every Saturday or Sunday morning is a fantastic journey around the culinary world. French toast is another common “special” breakfast that many people enjoy, but we prepare it differently on many instances. Instead of the traditional method of dipping bread in batter and frying in a pan, we often will make a large casserole dish of French toast the night before, letting the egg mixture soak in, and then baking it the next morning. Not only is it an extraor-

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.



Chef Dez on Cooking by Gordon Desormeaux dinary display at the breakfast table, it also allows us to have more free time in the morning to sip our special coffees and enjoy each other’s company. Actually there are many recipes that you can get mostly prepared the night before, like muffins or biscuits for example. Measure and combine all of the dry ingredients and then all you have to do is incorporate the wet ingredients in the morning. Incorporating fresh baked breads or unique types of bread will also enhance an ordinary breakfast. One way to make this easy is to

prep the loaf the evening before, cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator overnight. The bread might rise slightly in the fridge, but you will need to remove it from the fridge an hour or two before baking. Remove the plastic wrap, let it rise in a warm place until it doubles its original size and bake as usual. On many occasions we will serve fresh baked bread simply topped with butter and honey. If all of this seems like “work” however, there is one very quick way to help transform your regular breakfast of cold cereal: top with

a handful of fresh inseason berries or some slices of banana. This will take very little time, offer more flavor, nutrition, and make a better presentation. There is a reason why all the photos of cereal on the cereal boxes are like this: better presentation equals more of a chance of you buying it. Dear Chef Dez: I love pancakes, but whenever I make them they turn out tough. I know it’s not the recipe because it is the same one that my mom uses and hers always turn out fluffy and delicate. Can you help me? Sarah D. Burnaby, BC. Dear Sarah: Pancakes are much like quick breads as they should have a cake-like texture, hence the name pan-“cakes”. The biggest mistake

made when preparing pancake batter is that one tends to over-mix. Over-mixing flour and liquid produces gluten, which will give it more structure. The more mixing one does, the more gluten is created, and the tougher the cooked pancakes will be. It is okay for your batter to be a bit lumpy. The lumps won’t be evident in the cooked pancake. Also, make sure you are not using “bread” flour, as it contains more gluten than allpurpose or pastry flour. I hope this helps. Send your food/cooking questions to dez@ or P.O.

THE YORKTON TERRIERS dropped their final two preseason home contests with a shootout loss to the Swan Valley Stampeders and a 6-2 defeat against Melville. Regular season action kicks off for Yorkton next Friday as they host the Weyburn Red Wings at 7:30 p.m.

Terriers drop final two home preseason games By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer After a hot start to the preseason at home, the Yorkton Terriers found themselves in deep at the Farrell Agencies Arena on Sunday and Tuesday as the Swan Valley Stampeders and the Melville Millionaires came into town. On Sunday the Terriers lost in a shootout to the Stampeders before losing 6-2 to their Highway 10 rivals in what was a rough night for the home team. Sunday the Terriers came out strong for the majority of the game, looking like they would be able to dominate play and take the win over the MJHL club. However the Stampeders took advantage of their powerplay opportunities and both teams ended up at a stalemate going into overtime. A Patrick Martens overtime penalty in the closing moments of the period gave the Stampeders a 4 on 3 powerplay opportunity, but Kale Thomson shut the door in net on the penalty kill and sent the game to a shootout. In the end the Stampeders took the bragging rights in the meaningless shootout, handing the Terriers the loss in what was effectively a tie game. Things got chippy for the first time in the preseason as the extracurricular play after the whistle made its first appearances of the season, with both teams getting into some scrums in front of the net on numerous occasions showing some intensity as the season inches closer. Tuesday night saw the second leg of a home and away back to back between the Terriers and their hated SJHL rivals in the Millionaires. In a game that was the most intense of the preseason fare at the FAA the Millionaires jumped out to a 4-0 lead early in the second period and appeared to be on their way to a rout on the road. However two very quick goals by way of a Patrick Martens marker and an easy Jacob Dunlop tap in off of a Millionaires goalie gaffe gave the Terriers life as they shortened the lead to a 4-2 tally. The FAA saw its first fight of the season as Tayler Thompson tried to up the intensity and was subsequently tossed from the game in a moment you could see happening from the first period. Both teams were not shy to get involved in the after the whistle play and if it wasn’t for a very short leash from the officiating crew, who handed out a questionably high number of penalties for a game between two rivals, more fighting majors would have been

seen. Nathan Murray was also questionably given a ten minute misconduct penalty for a high hit in the first period that started the trend of tight calls for the night. However the play between both teams ensured that there is no love lost between the two teams and that this years crop of players are embracing and carrying on the SJHL’s top rivalry. A playoff exit from the Terriers at the hands of the Millionaires last spring has to be fresh on the players minds as they were dictating most of the physical play, especially in the third period

where every check was finished. After the two home losses the Terriers have one more preseason game as they head to Manitoba to play the Waywayseecapo Wolverines in a rematch of the game that kicked off their preseason when they notched a win at the FAA. Both teams will likely look much different in their final preseason affair, but the Terriers will be hungry to head into the regular season on a high note. The 2012/13 SJHL season begins for the Terriers Friday, September 21 as they host the Weyburn Red Wings at 7:30 p.m.

Raiders start life in Moose Jaw with win By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer 2012 marks a new chapter in the YRHS Raiders football program. After many years of Regina Intercollegiate Football League success, consistently making the playoffs and making runs at city championships, the Raiders have left to greener pastures by way of Moose Jaw’s football conference. Along with RIFL powerhouse and recent back to back champions in Weyburn the Raiders add another team to a league that is every bit as competitive as the RIFL and Saskatoon league, providing seven of the last ten provincial champions. The Raiders and Weyburn now get the benefits of lower travel costs, and the possibility of hosting a home playoff game, something that coach Roby Sharpe simply couldn’t pass up. Sharpe explained that they first tried to negotiate with the RIFL as they didn’t want to continue to pay for RIFL teams buses down to Yorkton and wanted the opportunity for Century Field to be able to host a home playoff game if they were the higher seed, when that didn’t happen Moose Jaw came forward as a viable option. After all of the behind the scenes effort, the moral of the story is that the YRHS was entering a new league with new teams when they made the first drive down to Moose Jaw Saturday to take on Vanier, one of last years provincial finalists, losing to RIFL powerhouse O’Neil 20-18. Going into the game coach Sharpe said it was a different experience as, “We didn’t even know where we were going, we were using change rooms for the first time, a different field, we didn’t have game film or game experience against their coaches as we would have had in the RIFL.� Despite the added challenges of having their first league game on the road the Raiders adjusted well to the new league with an impressive win over one of last year’s top teams, taking down Vanier 29-8. Coach Sharpe was happy with the win, but still thinks that the victory isn’t the measuring stick with Vanier potentially losing top players from their successful team from the year before. Sharpe was happy with his teams intensity, matching the tradition of physical Raider teams that seem to roll in year after year. “Adam McCanell and Tyson Haas are big physical additions to our team and love to hit, and Layne Hull is a man child all

over the field for us, bodies were lying everywhere.� said Sharpe. On offense Sharpe was impressed with quarterback Dalton Fichtner saying he is the “total package, he can throw the ball, run out of the pocket, and is a general leading the team.� Grade ten running back Zack Kais started his season with two touchdowns and 157 yards rushing, while Dalton Fichtner added to the ground attack with 116 yards on the ground at a staggering rate of 9.7 yards a carry. Layne Hull rounded out the impressive Raider offensive attack with two receiving touchdowns and eighty two yards of combined rushing/receiving offense on just seven touches. After the impressive win the Raiders get a bye week over the weekend before they host their first game of the season at Century Field against arguably one of the league and province’s best football programs, Moose Jaw Peacock. Sharpe anticipates a physical game at home and sees many similarities between the Raiders and their opponents adding that Moose Jaw Peacock attracts most of the city’s top athletes. Sharpe sees this game as what can be a measuring stick for where the Raiders fit into the league’s picture for the season as after two games against successful opponents the Raiders will be able to see how they stack up in the new league. Sharpe also mentioned that they are more familiar with their opponents this week than against Vanier as they have played Peacock in exhibition games before and will have the advantage of having Week One game film to prepare. As for what the Raiders will be working on heading into the September 18 clash, Sharpe said that hitting drills will be worked on as always, as new guys came in at the start of the school year after training camp that will need to be worked in, as well as fundamentals. Sharpe drove home the point that the fundamentals and ball protection will be a key in the matchup as “Games are won and lost on turnovers and the few mistakes made in a football game that can swing the momentum either way.� The Raider-Peacock matchup will sure to be one of the games of the season at Century Field as the two physical teams look to test their mettle early in the season. The game is slated for Tuesday afternoon, but a final kick off has yet to be determined.

YRHS/SHHS Sr. girls open volleyball seasons at YRHS Invitational


Just one week into the school year the YRHS hosted its annual senior girls volleyball tournament over the weekend as top local and provincial teams filled the Regional gym to kick off their seasons. The tournament kicked things off with a Gladstone Battle matchup between the Regional and Sacred who were both placed into Pool A for the tournament. An entertaining first set saw Sacred pull out a comeback from being at set point to winning 27-25 after a few missed opportunities to close out the set for the Raiders. In the second set more of the same competitive play was on display for the packed YRHS gym as the Lady Raiders pulled out a 25-22 victory in the second set, ending the round robin matchup with both teams almost exactly dead even. The round robin format was based on set wins/ losses with each team in the pool playing two sets against each other, the YRHS and SHHS ended up qualifying for the knockout rounds with the Regional finishing fourth in the pool with a .500 record in the round robin winning and losing four sets apiece. Oxbow ended up winning their Pool A with an 8-0 record, taking every set in the round robin. The Saints lost their quarterfinal matchup to Prince Albert Carlton ending their weekend early. The Raiders drew Foam Lake in the quarterfinals and after winning the first set seemed to look good for advancing into the semi-finals and the guarantee of a chance to play for at least bronze. However a very physically imposing Foam Lake team put it together in the second set, overpowering the Raiders with a mixture of attacks, blocks, and well placed serves to easily force a third set.

the deciding third set more of the same was on display as after a 8-6 break lead for Foam Lake, the small school turned the corner and took a majority of points to end the Raiders weekend in defeat. Both Yorkton teams represented the city with class and the YRHS put on a competitive opening weekend of volleyball with both teams showing promise of being able to improve throughout the season with added practice and development.

TSN’s 87’ Canada Cup series a hit/miss

I am a fan of sports nostalgia. I am an addict of ESPN Classic and YouTube highlights of classic games, players and moments in the most nerdy way possible. I am an owner of throwback jerseys, I still play NHL 94 and NBA Jam: Tournament Edition on the Super Nintendo, the history of the game is something that has always interested me. That is why when I began to see promos for TSN’s 25th anniversary series of the 1987 Canada Cup, the final peak of the great international tournaments that happened in a land before the fall of the Iron Curtain and million dollar NHL players playing in the Olympics, I got begrudgingly excited. I love ESPN’s excellent and acclaimed 30 for 30 series they did with thirty different documentaries of notable sporting moments of the thirty years ESPN has been in existence, and I do own one of those vintage VHS library classics of the 1987 Canada Cup that I used to watch when I was five years old, so I kind of knew the deal. I figured that TSN was either going to go one of two directions with this, one being highlights in between great narrative and player interviews and backstory (the documentary 30 for 30 way) or the standard ESPN Classic model of just showing the entire game in its entirety with a introduction at the start to give people who have never seen/heard of the event an idea of what is about to transpire. Instead TSN went way off the playbook, and this is where my enjoyment of the series has been forced to take a downturn. There was, and I am not trying to be funny here, actual indepth pre-game analysis of a game played twentyfive years ago. The TSN panel broke down a game that half the audience knew the result of and was not even necessary. Why ruin what

was a can’t miss series that everyone who watched it was bound to enjoy by trying to watch too hard. All TSN needed to do was get some interviews with Canadian players, piece together a nice package of pre-final highlights and give everyone the 100000000th Cold War history lesson and roll tape. I know I am not a TSN executive producer and my salary and job description proves it, but it doesn’t take a genius to know that it is going to look rather silly and redundant to break down a potential of a game that has zero potential. The game itself is obviously some of the greatest hockey of all time. If basketball has the 1992 Dream Team as its greatest assembly of league talent, the 1987 Canada Cup team is that on steroids and Red Bull. Gretzky, Messier, Mario, Ray Bourque, and Paul Coffey made up a powerplay line. Has there ever been a time in modern sports history where the five best players in the world in their position made up every single player on the team at a given time? That is something that will never be seen again and alone made this event worth watching. I hated myself for enjoying a twenty-five year old replay of a hockey game on our country’s major sports network while real sports from real Canadian teams that actually mattered were buried on something called “Sportsnet One.” How Canadian was it that our national soccer team’s crucial World Cup qualifier was buried on the island of misfit sporting events that is Rogers Sportsnet One while 90 per cent of the Canadian sports viewing audience was watching this? The play itself and the nostalgia of watching one of the greatest games in international history certainly justi-

Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig fied enduring the excruciating intermission and pre-game coverage, but it still had a few things lacking beyond that. The final of the tournament obviously was the driving point of the tournament, but the 1987 Canada Cup did have some great moments in the preliminary rounds and in

the lead up to the final. The United States had a shockingly good team for where they were at development wise at the time and pretty much skipping over all of the lead up passed the opportunity to build a feel of momentum for the final itself. This is where the documentary route would

have provided much more entertainment as you can weave the story and tapestry of the tournament without wasting time to show the actual games. This is probably just nitpicking because I would have preferred a well done rehashing of the tournament over rewatching games I have seen multiple times, but it did bug me. Overall TSN had a golden idea to commemorate one of the most entertaining and nostalgic moments of an era that many of its demographic will tune into. It was an enjoyable ride to see a time before Gary Bettman put his hands into the NHL and tried to force it to an American market.

Venues like Copps Coliseum, the old Montreal Forum and the presentation in general give the feel that this is 1987 and Glenn Anderson actually did tie the game up, which is a success for TSN. I will probably tune into the rest of the three game series, because the games are actually entertaining and it is nice to be reminded that hockey actually used to not be about how many Americans will tune into an NHL game played at eleven a.m. Saskatchewan time in the middle of June. TSN gets full marks for nostalgia and a great idea, just next time can you please keep it simple for all of us?

Atom Gridders earn first Century Field win in team history By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer

On a beautiful Saskatchewan fall afternoon, the Yorkton Minor Football program reached a milestone as the Atom Gridders won their first home game ever over the Regina Canadians in a 21-6 victory. The Gridder defense dominated a Canadians team throughout the game and allowed the offense to win the game for them with a 21 point performance. The game’s turning point came on a goal-line stand early in the fourth quarter when a questionable option call by the Canadians led to a botched pitch which the Gridders scooped up prevented the Canadians from making it a one score game. However the ref mistakenly blew his whistle as an incomplete pass then allowed the change of possession, drawing the ire of the Canadians coach who justifiably protested the call. Atom Gridders offensive coordinator Jason Boyda said of the call, “Everyone is human, and although the ref did blow his whistle it was a fumble.” Boyda also questioned the play calling of the opposition as they ran an option pitch on the goal line, something that is not common in Canadian or minor football at this level. With the added advantage of having an extra yard at the line of scrimmage, most teams opt to punch in the ball via a quarterback sneak or a simple running back dive. The play call will likely serve as an excuse for the Canadians, but it was a case of either team getting a bad call in the situation as the referee blowing his whistle early would have cost the Gridders a fumble recovery as the ball was clearly advanced backwards and was not an incomplete pass situation, making the ball live. After the goal line stand the Gridders running back corps made several big gains, flipping the field position game while chewing up the clock and sealing the win. The running game is a hallmark of Boyda’s offensive strategy and he made it clear after the game by mentioning that he believes in “Grounding and pounding it, and if we can control the clock and keep their offense off the field it allows us opportunities to win football games.” Boyda was impressed with how well the Canadians tackled, especially in the open field and said it provided a new challenge for their running attack. Jordan Rusnack’s quarterback skills were a big part of the Gridders overcoming the Canadians defense as his leadership on the field was lauded

ATOM GRIDDERS running backs move the chains in a Saturday afternoon contest with the Regina Canadians. After a goal-line stand the Gridders backfield chewed up most of the fourth quarter with timely runs resulting in multiple first downs. The 21-6 win was the Gridders first ever home win at the Atom level. by Boyda postgame. Rusnack was constantly making sure the Gridders offense was organized and prevented many of the chaotic confusion that is so common in minor football as players get used to playcalling and where they need to be on the field. Rusnack was very vocal in making sure his line and receivers were in the correct place and it showed in the lack of penalties the Gridders were given in the game. The offensive line also did an outstanding job in giving the running backs room to bust out big gains, specifically in the aforementioned fourth quarter when the line did well in downfield blocking as the Gridders worked the outside on sweep plays to great success. An area of the game Boyda mentioned the offense needed work on was turnovers as the Grid-

ders did end up giving the ball away on a couple of occasions despite all of their offensive success, which gave the Canadians chances to take over the ballgame. The win puts the Raiders at 3-1 at the halfway point of the Regina Minor Football season, giving the young Gridders great odds of a high playoff seed and championship contention on the horizon. Coach Boyda was confident when asked about team expectations in the future and said, “Every time we lace them up, and strap on the pads, we expect to win as we have a talented group of kids this year.” A weekend road game in Regina against the North Griffins will further lay out the Gridders playoff hopes and a win over the 1-3 Griffins will certainly go a long way in cementing those playoff aspirations after a milestone home win.

Junior Raiders fall at home


The YRHS Jr Raiders had a difficult week as two late fourth quarter wins, were so close yet so far. The Raiders came up short in going for their first win of the season in a three games in one week stretch in the RMFL season. After a tough loss after the Regina Mounties punted the ball out of the endzone to scrounge a single point victory on the road in Regina, the Raiders headed into their Century Field clash against the Regina Renegades on Sunday afternoon with the feeling that they were poised to earn their first victory after a encouraging performance against one of last years top teams. Sadly the energy and effort the Raiders had on Wednesday night did not translate early on Sunday as the Renegades held the ball for much of the first half as offensive line woes as well as a costly fumble on a punt return allowed the Renegades to control most of the clock and the game in what led to a 14-0 halftime lead. The Raiders offense just could not get going as short first down gains and pass protection problems, led to a Raider offense that went two and out often in the first half. An Alex Popoff highlight reel catch from Nick Payne in the first quarter provided the only positives from the Raider passing game early. Despite the amount of time on the field, the Jr Raider defense held in tough and put in many solid red zone stands, keeping the score low, even blocking an extra point attempt to keep the score at 14-0. After an inspired halftime speech from head coach Mike Jarvis the Raiders held the Renegades to just a early third quarter safety to keep the score at 16-0 heading into the

fourth quarter. Caleb Bymak had a stellar game on defense making many tackles behind the line of scrimmage for the Raiders, who despite being beat for long passes that led to the two Renegades scores, dominated the running game and had a promising performance in all four quarters of the game. In the fourth quarter the Raider offense came alive as screen passes to Brendan Weber ate up big yardage before a Alex Popoff touchdown catch and a subsequent extra point attempt put the Raiders down one score with four minutes left. The Raider defense got the ball back for the offense in time for one last game winning drive, but the heroic comeback was not in the cards as the Raiders came up short in a game that could have been much different had the Raiders offense shown the life it had in the fourth quarter more often throughout the game. Coach Mike Jarvis was not pleased the Raiders came out flat, but noted that “If the game had been five minutes longer, this is one we probably would have won.” Jarvis also mentioned the Raiders excellent defensive effort and said that the whole defensive unit should be credited for what was a solid all around performance save for the pass plays in the first half. Going into the second half of the season Jarvis mentioned he expects a turnaround and hopes that the Raiders can rally up a few wins to hopefully play its way into the playoffs. The Raiders head on the road next Sunday where they will play the Regina Lakers, who like the Raiders are winless and trying to turn their season around. Jarvis says they will be focusing on intensity this weekend and expects a turnaround win over the weekend.

With a 1-2 record and a physical Weyburn Ravens team coming into Century Field, Sunday’s tilt provided a challenge and turning point in the Pee Wee Gridders season. Lose and go down to 1-3 halfway through the season, win and go back to 2-2 and stay very much alive in the playoff picture. The Gridders rose to the challenge and took a 36-0 win thanks to a stout defensive effort and the running game. The win put the Yorkton Minor Football program at 2-0 for the weekend with the Atoms and Pee Wee’s giving the fans at Century Field something to

cheer about in what was a triple header on Sunday before the YRHS Jr Raiders took to the field to close out the day. Head coach Noel Budz credited the win due to preparation and an all around effort from top to bottom through all of the players and the coaching staff. The Ravens provided a physical challenge for the Gridders and had a quarterback that could throw the ball as well as run it, which Budz pointed out is typical in the Regina league. “Regina is one of the top leagues, and week in and week out you will see quarterbacks that can throw the ball and do a lot of things,” added Budz.

where they will face the Mustangs in Regina in what will be a competitive game between two teams looking to battle for playoff spots. Despite being halfway into the season Budz has no expectations going forward, mentioning you can never know what to expect and that all he can ask of his players is to take things one game at a time and work hard and see how things play out. Coach Budz says the team would like to give the game ball to coach Jordan Hall who is currently in the hospital and couldn’t make it to Sunday’s game.

A look at what is happening in the Yorkton Business Improvement District



"Your Fabric Care Specialist" When You Look Good We Look Good 14 First Ave. N. Yorkton, SK

There are a lot of things happening in our community and in fact our Province. That’s a good thing. Right in the middle is a municipal election. Home




While there is still a month to go YBID would like to say thanks to Mayor Wilson who is retiring, not really, from the Mayors Chair as well as all the members of City Council for the way they working co-operatively with the Board of Directors of the YBID.

This year’s election will see a council that will sit for a period of 4 years rather than the normal 3 year period. It’s a big commitment and a lot of work and the opportunity to give back to your community could never be better than serving on council, so now is your chance.


I have always said that if you don’t vote you should not complain, and if you do vote and want change, get involved. We have a great community and a fantastic future, positive thinking and a dash of dreaming and out of the box thinking will make it all come true.

Yorkton, SK S3N 4C4


When the candidates are nominated, and begin to express their views, ask questions, get answers, cut through the chaff and make up your mind where your vote will go, it’s important. To those running, all the best, but we all must remember, when the time comes make sure you get out and VOTE!
