RUNNING FOR A CURE – The annual Terry Fox Run, which took place Sunday in the city, was a big success this year. The Yorkton event, which raises awareness and funds for cancer research, had over 100 people involved and raised over $5,000. Organizer Nadine Frisk would like to thank everyone who contributed to making the event a success, and the community overall for the outpouring of support.
Local residents honored By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The Yorkton Chamber of Commerce has inducted two new life members into its ranks. Life membership recognizes people who have distinguished themselves through service over their lives. The two people granted life membership were Ruth Shaw and Allan Bailey. Shaw has been a volunteer in the community for over 60 years, working with the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club and a wide variety of other community organizations. She is perhaps best known for her work with the Yorkton Film Festival, and is the last founding member of the Yorkton Film Society. Her work with the festival has been recognized with the Ruth Shaw
Best in Saskatchewan award. Bailey has been involved in the City of Yorkton for decades, including time spent as mayor and as a consistent part of various groups in the city. A recipient of the Volunteer Medal, Bailey says that he feels honored to be recognized for his work in the community, but that he was happy to do it. “I enjoyed every minute of it, I always accepted anything given to me as a challenge, and I had a great help in my late wife Colleen who was always encouraging me to get involved and she did as well. Yorkton has been a wonderful community to live in, raise a family in, and do business in,” Bailey says. Continued on Page 2.
THE YORKTON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE currently has three life members (l-r), Allan Bailey, Ruth Shaw and John Miller. Bailey and Shaw were most recently awarded life membership for their years of service to the community of Yorkton.

REMEMBERING 9/11 – Members of Yorkton Fire Protective Services recently paid tribute to those who lost their lives during 9/11, including the many people in the emergency services who died doing their job, trying to protect and save people.
ABEX finalists announced: Yorkton makes the cut
The finalists have been named and on the list are three local businesses. The Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce announced the list of finalists for the 30th anniversary Achievement in Business Excellence (ABEX) Awards. The adjudication panel chose 54 businesses from the list of highly qualified nominations received, to compete in 10 ABEX categories. “We were very pleased
by the quality, number and wide range of nominees for this year’s awards,” says Steve McLellan, CEO of the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce. “Saskatchewan’s entrepreneurial spirit is going to shine very brightly on October 26th; the ABEX will be showcasing strong, innovative and high quality businesses, and the contribution they continue to make to our vibrant economy.” Two Yorkton Chamber members,
Crusader Drilling Corp. and Yorkton Plumbing & Heating Ltd. will go head-to-head in the Growth and Expansion category (sponsored by PFM Capital Inc.) this year. This is a repeat achievement for both businesses, who were finalists in the same category during the 2012 ABEX Awards. Justin Yawney, proprietor of Yorkton Plumbing & Heating, was the recipient of the 2011 Young Entrepreneur ABEX Award. Jay’s Moving &
Storage of Regina, a long-time member of the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce, is a finalist in the Community Involvement category. Amie Zamonsky, President of the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce says she is pleased that these Chamber members have been selected as finalists. “Having these Yorkton Chamber members selected as finalists for the prestigious ABEX Awards demonstrates to the rest of the province that Yorkton has dynamic
and vibrant businesses, Just being named as an ABEX finalist is an honour. On behalf of the Yorkton Chamber, I wish all three companies good luck!” A special gala evening is planned to mark the 30th anniversary of the ABEX Awards, Saskatchewan’s most prestigious and longestrunning celebration of private sector achievement. The event is hosted by the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce, and presented by Conexus
Credit Union. The ABEX is open to any private sector business registered within the province, regardless of size, location or industry. Announcement of the 2013 recipients of the Hall of Fame and Business Leader of the Year (sponsored by Viterra) will be made prior to the event. The Business of the Year ABEX Award, sponsored by David Aplin Group will be announced at the event October 26.
Local residents recognized
Forty dedicated Saskatchewan employees were recently recognized by the provincial government, on the list were two from Yorkton. Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield and Corrections and Policing Minister Christine Tell announced the names of 40 men and women for career achievements in the provincial correctional services. “The contributions made by each of these dedicated people to help keep our communities safe, and to the rehabilitation of individuals in conflict with the law, are both admirable and important,” Tell comments. “Congratulations to all the recipients – they are strong role models who deserve special recognition.” Exemplary Service Medals commemorate at least 20 years of distinguished service with the Corrections Branch of Saskatchewan Justice. Eight previous medal recipients received Exemplary Service Bars, recognizing an additional decade of service.

Lifetime Chamber members Con’t from Page 1. With his interest in literacy, Bailey says that one of his greatest accomplishments was the formation of the Parkland Regional Library, an undertaking which also involved Shaw on the committee. Bailey says that the big challenge was going to all the different small towns in the region to sell them on the benefits of being part of a larger regional library. Bailey also says that building the Agriplex was another challenge which he was proud to overcome. He notes that it was a close vote, with some
vocal opposition, but they were able to get federal money and the end result was something to be proud of. “The people who were so against it when it was being built were the ones that were always talking about it after, and how it was a great thing for the community.” Another accomplishment was the Anne Portnuff Theatre in the Yorkton Regional High School, something Bailey says was not only a valuable part of the community, but also a great value. “We spent $100,000, which is a mere pittance when you consider what the Anne Portnuff means today.”

Connecting suppliers with government By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer While many businesses might want to supply their products to the Government of Saskatchewan, before they can start they need to get the vital connections and information to actually accomplish that goal. The Corporate Procurement Committee of Saskatchewan recently hosted a Supplier Open House in Yorkton to make those connections. Participants from the Ministry of Central Services, the Ministry of the Economy, the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, SaskEnergy, SGI, SaskTel and SaskGaming were at the event, as well as many local businesses looking for an opportunity to talk to those ministries. It is one of four events hosted in the province annually. Scott Summach with the Ministry of the Economy says that the point of the committee is to ensure that local suppliers are on the map of the different agencies. While it has to be an open bidding process, it’s still important to be aware of the local suppliers and discuss the needs and products of crowns and local businesses. Summach says it’s important to get businesses and crown
corporations face to face, so that they can meet, in an atmosphere that is not as intimidating as something like a cold call. While each department has different numbers, Summach notes that a corporation like SaskPower is on target to hit a billion dollars in procurement annually, with the majority of that money going to Saskatchewan businesses. That money represents opportunities large and small for businesses in the province, whether it’s major equipment or something such as embroidery for corporate shirts. One of the important parts of the event is teaching businesses how to work with the province’s crowns, Summach notes. Getting registered with the website where the tenders are posted, for example, in order to put their hat in the ring for the different opportunities that working with crowns represent. “You’re opening a door of a window of opportunity. I would dare say that if there’s 20 here today, probably half have never supplied to any of them, so they’re learning how to do business with them. So they’re learning how to get registered as a product, to get the tenders that are out there... You’ve either got a big opportunity or a smaller, localized opportunity,” Summach concludes.
THE SUPPLIER OPEN HOUSE, hosted by the Corporate Procurement Committee of Saskatchewan, and held in Yorkton recently, was meant to connect local businesses with the province’s crown corporations.
Beautifully broken: former resident pens a novel By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer A former Yorkton resident has recently released her first novel. C. L. Ford’s Beautifully Broken is now available through AuthorHouse. The story is about the main character interacting with four different women through the course of the narrative, centering around the failure of a relationship. She says that the ending is a twist that readers will not expect, and one that she admits could be controversial.
“I know the end of the book might offend some people, and that wasn’t my intent. That’s just how it came together, and I thought it was the ending I want and it wrote itself,” Ford says. Ford says that she didn’t know what kind of book she was going to write when she began. She thought she would lean toward politics and history. However, she says she began writing the story, inspired in part by a bad break-up of a long-term relationship of her own, and admits that it might have begun as a
bit of therapy, until growing into a story which she felt was worthy of being sent into the world. “I think initially I just started a journal to myself, and it just took off from there and it just kind of blossomed... It wasn’t something I expected to write or publish.” The narrative is told in an unconventional manner and she admits that some of the grammar and spelling is deliberately poor. She says the reason for this is to get a better grasp of who her main character is and the way he speaks and thinks. She says it’s a story that people can recognize, whether in their own lives or those around them, and her goal was to make a story about people and relationships that felt real. “It’s just a regular person writing a regular story... I call it my own dark version of a love story, because at the end of the day the main character did love all these women, it just wasn’t always a storybook romance, it was a little dark sometimes.” The book is self published, and Ford says that her experience with AuthorHouse, which published the novel, has been overall highly positive. She recommends anyone who is writing take the chance and try to put their own work out there.
“Even if I only sold one book, just achieving this has been amazing.” The book itself has also been well received from the people who Ford has spoken with. “The people that have read the book have said positive things, and I hope they’re not saying that
because they’re my friends.” Ford grew up in Yorkton in the ‘80s, and says that the city still feels like home, even after having lived in Calgary and Regina. It’s somewhere she continues to appreciate in her life. “It’s changed, but it
hasn’t changed in some ways, which is both good and bad. But it’s still a great place, and I wouldn’t trade growing up there,” Ford concludes. Beautifully Broken is available direct from AuthorHouse at www. authorhouse.com.

Celebrating our diverse culture! While it’s important to acknowledge all year long, three special days have been set aside in Saskatchewan this month to celebrate the diverse arts and culture that make up this province and all residents are encouraged to get involved. September 27-29 is Culture Days in Saskatchewan and nationwide. It’s a time “to foster appreciation and support of the artistic and cultural life that is lived, created and expressed across the country in urban, suburban and rural areas alike; a time to promote direct interaction between creators and citizens, as a key to increasing understanding and appreciation of art and culture; and it’s a time to affirm that every citizen is the guardian of the cultural life of his or her community.” Activities have been planned across the country, giving all an opportunity to celebrate the season. In Yorkton an Open House event has been slated at the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery and the Western Development Museum (WDM) will also play host to a special afternoon of cultural celebrations. On Saturday, September 28 enjoy free admission to the WDM as a part of Culture Days celebrations and on September 29 from noon until 5 p.m. the Dean will feature the opening of “Nests” – an exhibition by Monique Martin, including her week-long installation in public spaces of downtown Yorkton. Tasty food is always a highlight at this Culture Days celebration! Whatever way you choose to get involved make sure you take the time to get engaged. Learn more at culturedays.ca.
Faint hope? Now I’ve heard it all
What is the point of a costly trial if the final decision can be overturned on a whim? A Regina murderer is looking at the possibility of parole after serving just 17 years of his life sentence because of a clause called a “faint hope” hearing. Faint hope? Really? Seventeen years ago Lyle Bellegarde made the decision to brutally beat to death an innocent 26-year-old restaurant owner in a crime that was described as “horrific.” “There was massive fractures to virtually all of his facial bones and his eyes were pushed to the back of his head,” said a pathologist at the trial. “Several of his teeth had been torn out and one was found in the airway to his lungs... This is extreme violence... Mr. Barlas died a death I can only describe as horrific...” Wow. Where is the hope for the victim? There isn’t any as it was taken away by a cold blooded killer. Today though, Bellegarde has an eager lawyer who says he has changed. “Seventeen years is a very long period of time... He seems to be doing all the right things. He looks like a success story.” Whether he “seems” to be something or he doesn’t
matters not to me. Look at what this man did. A jury found him guilty and sentenced him to prison with no chance of parole for at least 25 years. That should be that, end of discussion. There is a clause though that says different. Shannon Deveau Apparently the federal government had sense enough to get rid of the “faint hope” concept but Bellegarde’s crime predates the change. The decision now lies in the hands of the Court of Queen’s Bench and ultimately the Parole Board of Canada. All I can say is I hope they take a close look at all of the facts surrounding this case BEFORE they send this guy to the streets. He’s already serving his time in a Cree “Healing Lodge” with passes to attend sweat lodges and the like, freeing him would be an added slap in the faces of family and friends left to cope with the loss of their loved one. “I haven’t seen him (Bellegarde) in 17 years,” said a weeping family member as they watched him being escorted from court this week to await a final decision. Can you imagine how this family feels? Faint hope, good behaviour, looking like a success, I don’t care, I hope government gets it right when all of this plays out.
The way I see it... Column
Disney would like to ruin movies for everyone I have been somewhat outspoken in my belief that people who use cell phones in the movie should be punished in some way. I would personally prefer an extremely painful way, in fact, in order to really pound in the lesson that the distracting lights of a phone are a detriment to the movie going experience, even if you think you’re being sneaky and looking at it under your jacket or similar. People actually there to watch the movie can still see you, and they don’t like you. So, it is with great sadness that I have discovered Disney has decided to ruin movies. They are promoting something called “Second Screen Live” as part of the theatrical re-release of The Little Mermaid. If you were excited about the possibility of watching the beloved children’s film in the theatre, perhaps with your own kids, too bad. Instead, Disney wants to revolutionize the experience of going to the movies by replacing it with the experience of fiddling with an iPad in a dark room while something is projected onto a screen. The trailer for this experience even has a scene where everyone hoists their iPads to the heavens, blocking the screen for anyone who might want to watch the movie, because why would you go to a theatre and pay a bunch of money to do that?
Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger There are plenty of places to play with an iPad, pretty much everywhere that is not either a theatre or behind the controls of a moving vehicle. There are good reasons why you can’t use iPads in those places. If you are driving a moving vehicle, the iPad would be a distraction, and you would probably crash into a tree. If you are in a theatre, the iPad is also a distraction, for yourself and everyone around you. If anything, people caught trying to use an iPad in a theatre should have their device smashed with a hammer. Instead, Disney has decided that instead of watching a movie that they paid for, kids should be encouraged to play games and do interactive nonsense while
the movie plays. It won’t change the movie, The Little Mermaid was not made with this kind of experience in mind. The only possible result is distraction, nothing more. Besides, do kids even need the constant distraction the second screen experience promises? It’s a movie, it should be entertaining for the time it is projected on the screen. In fact, it is entertaining, the Little Mermaid is a good movie, while kids are often distracted by anything around them, they should be able to sit and watch it for the hour and a half that it is on screen. Is it even healthy to indulge children in these endless distractions? Shouldn’t they develop an awareness of when messing with some electronics is appropriate, and when those things need to be put away? I just can’t see the experience Disney is promoting being at all healthy. There are times when one has to be respectful, pay attention and put their toys away. Parents aren’t the only ones teaching kids what they should and should not do, it’s everyone, as social cues allow people to figure out what is acceptable in different environments. With programs like this, it is more difficult for parents and society to teach kids when paying attention is necessary, and what will happen when those kids become adults?

Your letter of the Week
Countering the climate scare
Open Letter to Premier Brad Wall
To the Editor:
Halloween comes a month early this year with the September 27th release of the next big United Nations climate change report. Innocuously entitled “Working Group I: The Physical Science Basis”, the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) doesn’t sound scary. But it is certain to provide endless fodder for doomsday coverage by media the world over. That is its purpose of course: to convince the press to frighten the public so that they pressure governments into multi-billion dollar climate change plans. The science is settled, the IPCC and climate activists will tell us. It is past time for action. The IPCC could not conclude anything else. UN climate change activities must adhere to the doctrine laid down in 1992 by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC). At that year’s Rio Summit, virtually all national leaders endorsed the FCCC’s proclamation that humanity must work to accomplish “stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.” That 21 years ago, and even today, no one knows what, if any, greenhouse gas level would cause climate problems is immaterial. The climate change express left the station long ago. So in the two decades since Rio the UN has done what you would expect a well-funded, unelected bureaucracy to do when put in charge of solving a problem. They convened huge international conferences in exotic locations to orchestrate climate treaties. They created global warming and alternative energy ‘roadmaps’ for the world to follow. They designed strategies to monitor and enforce countries’ compliances with treaty obligations. And of course, the UN will run the developing nations $100 billion Green Fund.
No matter what science and observational evidence actually tell us, it is not realistic to expect one part of the UN, here the IPCC, to conclude that the problem other parts of the organization has been pushing the world to solve may not actually exist. What has clearly been needed for a very long time is an anti-IPCC, a formal group of equally qualified but independent experts who do not support the hypothesis that our greenhouse gas emissions, carbon dioxide (CO2) in particular, are causing climate problems. Then media could report the arguments for and against the man-made global warming hypothesis and let the public and their elected officials decide who is most credible and what, if any, actions should be taken. While there have been open letters and petitions signed by leading experts asserting that the IPCC is wrong, the skeptics side has never had anything like the weighty tomes issued every five or six years by the IPCC. So, most reporters cited IPCC proclamations as if there were no equally credible alternative. All that is about to change. On September 17, the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), a panel of leading scientists and scholars from across the globe, will issue a report entitled Climate Change Reconsidered II: Physical Science. Strategically timed to precede the release of the IPCC document by 10 days, the NIPCC report will reveal a scientific community deeply uncertain about the reliability of the computer models used by the IPCC to predict climate problems. Climate Change Reconsidered II (CCR-II) will also demonstrate that many of the world’s leading climate experts now question, or entirely refute, the IPCC’s basic postulates and its interpretations of the observational evidence. The NIPCC criticism doesn’t come from a “fringe” group of scientists: it is repeated in thousands of articles in the peer-reviewed literature, many of which are listed and
interpreted by the scientist authors of the NIPCC report. Unlike the IPCC, the NIPCC is not sponsored by the UN or member governments and so is not politically motivated to come to any pre-ordained conclusion. It is co-authored and co-edited by Dr. Craig Idso, chairman of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change; Professor Robert Carter, Former Head of the School of Earth Sciences, James Cook University, Australia, and S. Fred Singer, Ph.D., president of the Science and Environmental Policy Project and professor emeritus of environmental science at the University of Virginia. Forty-six other climate experts from 14 countries acted as authors and reviewers. CCR-II focuses especially on research papers that were either overlooked by the IPCC or that contain data, discussion, or implications arguing against the dangerous global warming hypothesis. The report concludes that the IPCC has exaggerated the amount of warming likely to occur due to rising CO2 concentrations and that whatever warming may occur will be harmless. The key question to be answered in the climate change debate is not whether ‘climate change is real’, or whether human activities have some impact. Both are obviously true. The real question is whether reputable science indicates that it is worth spending hundreds of billions of dollars to restructure our energy infrastructure to avoid a man-made climate catastrophe. Activists cite the reports of the IPCC to support an affirmative answer to this question. The new report of the NIPCC suggests the exact opposite is true. Government, industry, education and media leaders must insist on an immediate cessation of expenditures on climate change pending a complete re-examination of the file. No matter who’s right, the stakes are too high to do anything else. Tom Harris, Ottawa, ON.
Middle-class pressure wins a tax freeze
To the Editor:
The Harper government has been increasing the burden of Employment Insurance (EI) premiums by some $600-million-per-year every year since 2011. Mr. Harper claims that he doesn’t increase taxes, but that’s obviously not true. When these taxes escalate year-after-year, small business groups and chambers of commerce call them “job killers”, because they make it more expensive-per-job to expand employment. In the wake of the 2008-09 recession, job creation was supposed to be Canada’s Number-One economic priority. But despite that, the Conservatives have
been levying higher and higher EI payroll taxes – making job creation and even sustaining existing employment more difficult. They announced this perverse policy in 2010. It came into effect on January 1st, 2011. Over the last three years, new Conservative payroll taxes have raked in a cumulative total of more than $3.6-billion, largely out of the pockets of middle-class Canadians. Finally, this past Monday, the Harper government announced a freeze on further increases, effective next January. It’s about time. Better late than never, I suppose. But what brought on this change of heart, after years of stubborn
refusals? Mr. Harper says he can now afford to forego the new revenue because the economy is suddenly doing so much better. Really? The latest Bank of Canada statement just confirmed that Canada’s economic growth remains sluggish and uncertain. Mr. Harper’s growth record is, in fact, the worst since the 1930’s. Statistics Canada is reporting 248,000 more Canadians are without jobs today than before the recession. So what’s the real reason for the Conservatives now swallowing themselves whole on EI payroll taxes, after persisting with these wrong-headed tax increases for the last three
years? It may finally have dawned on Mr. Harper that punishing employment – i.e., making job creation more difficult year-after-year – is really not smart economic policy at a time when Canada is trying to recover from a recession. Over the past year, more than anyone else, Justin Trudeau has focused relentlessly on the economic pressures squeezing the middleclass. He has emerged as the leading advocate for middle-class Canada. Cancelling further Conservative payroll tax hikes is Mr. Harper’s way of playing catch-up. Ralph Goodale, MP, Wascana, SK.
It’s vital to keep animal abusers in check
To the Editor:
The boy who is accused of killing a 6-year-old at Kahkewistahaw First Nation also sadistically killed a mother dog and her puppies on the reservation two years ago, according to the RCMP. These cases are another example of the undeniable link between cruelty to animals and interper-
sonal violence. Medical experts and top law-enforcement officials agree: Cruelty to animals is a big red flag. Many serial rapists and murderers, including school shooters, have a background of abusing animals. The FBI uses reports of cruelty in gauging the threat potential of suspected and known criminals, and the American Psychiatric Association identifies such
crimes as one of the diagnostic criteria for conduct disorders. It’s vital that animal abusers receive intervention – including counseling and a ban on contact with animals – to prevent their violence from escalating. To learn more, visit www.PETA.org. Martin Mersereau, Norfolk, VA.
Brad Wall, It is the (proposed) decision of the Park Management Branch of the Ministry of Park, Culture and Sport (MPCS) to sell off the rights to the Marina at Greenwater Lake. When the government sold leases to other Marinas in the Province, the dock rentals went from $75.00/year to (in some cases) $1,500 and higher/ year. Fair market value, proponents would say but certainly not affordable for the average family who want to enjoy boating for two or three months in the summer. Justifiable perhaps at a private beach, not a Provincial Park whose motto at one time was “For our children’s children”. At Greenwater Park many will remember a few years ago that it was the government rental cabins that were sold to Nicor Group, a large Saskatchewan company (www.nicorgroup.ca). Nicor Group is increasing the cabin rental fees significantly (20, 30 & 45%) rendering them unaffordable any longer for many average families. Last year, without consultation with the Park Users Group, Parks Branch drew up an agreement for a local business man (who also works for Nicor Group during the summer season), to destroy a large section of forest land between the Greenwater Lake RV Park (owned by Nicor Group) and the park’s ball diamond to put up a “for profit” storage compound site. Many park users were shocked at the destruction of forest land inside the park to make room for another private profit making venture. Destruction of this land goes against the Park Act’s own mandate of maintaining ecosystems. Years ago the Beach Cafe and Park Store buildings were sold as well to local area families, but the government has apparently said that they no longer want to do business with mom and pop operations. Saskatchewan Parks should be financially available to everyone; not a country club for a few. When pieces of the Park are slowly and systematically sold/ leased off to businesses whose bottom line will always be the best return on investment to themselves or their shareholders (and not the natural preservation and beauty of our parks), access to the parks will be quietly eroded. I have a dock in the Marina at Greenwater. I can’t afford $1,500/year. But if someone was willing to pay that and I had to give my dock up why wouldn’t the Sask Party keep the docks and that money to enhance our Park not some private businesses bottom line? I don’t care who you support at the ballot box next election – selling off our Parks is wrong and a travesty if we continue to let them quietly do it. I have been given the opportunity to attend a Park Advisory Meeting to speak to the issue, of selling the Greenwater Marina, prior to the final decision. If you want more information or want to voice your concern you should call: Minister for Parks, Culture & Sport Kevin Doherty 306-787-0354.

New at the Dean: artists reception held By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The Godfrey Dean Art Gallery recently held an artist reception for its two current exhibitions. In attendance were artist Jeanne Mah and members of the Mark family, formerly of Yorkton, who were part of the TRAIN: les Arrivées as artist and subject. Mah says the genesis of the show came from Don Stein, who suggested doing a series on railways through Saskatchewan. The most difficult part of putting the show together was simply finding the pictures, Mah says. The history of Chinese-Canadian families was not well documented, and simply finding pictures for the program. Her idea was to go across Saskatchewan, from Yorkton to Consul, where her family had settled. However, in searching archives, pictures were difficult to find, until a happy coincidence set Mah up with the Mark family, specifically Lily Tingley. The women were swimming buddies, Mah says, and when the upcoming show came up in conversation, she learned Tingley was from Yorkton and finally had a source to connect the show to the region. The difficulty finding photos to use was something that Mah says reflects the experience of the Chinese families in the province.
“I think Chinese families were busy working all the time and we didn’t document anything really,” Mah says. “We didn’t have family photos in the sense that we would sit around and take a photo, we had to bring a photographer in and get this done, and we have one photo of a family Christmas together out of all the years we were together,” Tingley adds. The show is about documenting history that hasn’t been well documented. Mah says that it’s a common problem with Saskatchewan his-
tory, as things are disappearing as people allow them to fade away. “In a generation, things are erased completely, without much notice. It’s not just Chinese, it’s the many nationalities that come here, we don’t have a lot of history. We exist, and we disappear,” Mah says. Another reason for the difficulty could have come from the culture at the time, as the families were more focused on pushing their children towards success rather than documenting their own lives.
Tingley says that her parents worked hard and for long hours to provide her and her family an education and get them into more respected careers. “You do not want to grow in a restaurant, you have to go to university. There is no stopping, you do not quit school, and don’t you forget it, that was the utmost concern,” Tingley says. “Chinese families are pushing so hard, it’s another reason it was not recorded. This is our lives now, but our lives will get better,” Mah adds.
The show was a homecoming for Tingley, and she says it was an emotional experience to see where her family began, and what has happened since. “We were a poor family when we were living in Yorkton, but we turned out okay... We were successful in our own way, and that was really enlightening for me, to see that pottery,” Tingley says. TRAIN: les Arrivées runs until the end of the month at the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery. Admission is free.
Remembering the heroes of the Korean War The hardships of the Korean War, like those of the Great Wars in the decades prior, have faded into the past. What must not fade is the respect we all owe the men and women of Canada’s Armed Forces. Their sacrifices uphold our values and help keep our country safe. The accomplishments of our Veterans still shines bright. Thanks in part to 26,000 Canadian service members, 516 of whom never returned home, the Republic of Korea is now free and prosperous. How could we forget the valour of these Canadians? That victory had a steep price:
rigorous hardship, time apart from family and loved ones, and for some, the ultimate sacrifice. For over three years, Canadian service members fought as one of 16 allied forces, all doing their country proud. Our Government is committed to helping ensure we remember those who fought so valiantly. Earlier this summer, a Conservative MP unveiled a special monument in Korea built to honour the Canadian Armed Forces personnel who fought in the Korean War, and those who served between 1953 and 1957, the tense period following the Armistice. This tan-
who chronicled some of his battlefield experiences. Before he died, he left this poignant autobiographical poem on the Korean War Vets Association of Canada website. Lest we forget the human side of this war, I publish it here.
Parliamentary Report Op-Ed Column by Garry Breitkreuz gible symbol stands as a testament to the legacy of Canadian Veterans. It’s been 60 years since the Korean War Armistice – long past time to remember in a concrete way the Canadian heroes who fought bravely to defend their country and the Republic of Korea, and to uphold freedom,
democracy and the rule of law. That’s why our Conservative Government declared 2013 the Year of the Korean War Veteran. One of those heroes was former Yorkton resident, Wally Austman,
A RITE OF PASSAGE A rebellious youth, off in search of adventure, Starry eyed, and Oh! So naive. Saw a recruiting poster, and thought, Aah. That’s the life for me!
Swore his allegiance, Trained hard, became a Sky Soldier. Posted overseas to war, In “The Land of The Morning Calm.” Received his Baptism of fire, When he saw his best friend die in action. Suffered the stress and trauma, Of close quarter battle and hand-to-hand combat. Fought the hard fight for almost two years, And finally, battle weary, battle wise, and battle worn.
Grandpa, is that your Christmas Tree?

Once upon a time there was a church building here It does not matter what faith denomination we are, our church memberships are declining. The churches we know today may change within our lifetime. I would like to share with you something we experienced as we were on vacation in North Carolina this past summer. One Saturday afternoon I phone a church which was listed in the local newspaper to see if Holy Communion would be celebrated, and if we would be welcomed at the table. I was in luck, I had reached the pastor and he gave me all the details including instructions of how to find the church. The road instructions were very good and he knew the surrounding country side, but just to make sure we would find the church we set our GPS to the address he gave me. After several interchanges, some road construction, along with detours, we arrived at the street where the church was to be located. ‘This does not look like the right area,’ my husband said, but the GPS told us to continue down this street. While reading the store fronts for an address I noted we were very close to the church address, there was only one problem, there was only a mini mall with several store fronts in full view. The GPS took us to the exact address we were given and within this mini mall was a door marked with the number we were given. ‘This must be a mistake,’ was on our minds the entire time we walked to the door. This is no church; it is a mini
FROM MORNING UNTIL EVENING... Column by Margaret Anne Yost mall. When we opened the door- to our surprise it was the church we were looking for. Inside the church were a few pews, but mostly chairs, an altar and a table that held coffee and dainties. The most outstanding part of this church were the people. There was not one person who did not come to speak to us and introduce themselves and their families to us. This congregation was friendly and outgoing, pleasant and we felt very warmly welcomed. The clergy knew our name and where we lived before the service started. He introduced us in the opening announcements. At the end of the service he again invited us by name to join them in refreshments and fellowship. Not many people attended this church. I would say 20 adults and about 25 children. They told us that most of their members were military personal
which are transferred frequently. They could not afford to keep up their church building, so the church was sold, and they rented a space in this mini mall. Would we come back to this church to worship? Yes, we would go back in a heartbeat. They were very welcoming people. Their friendly outreach program draws people in their midst. Does this arrangement of worship work for them? It really does. Their people are their treasures, not their buildings. Yes, once upon a time there was a church building here. Now this congregation enjoys a smaller worship space, but they have what they need most.... a closer relation with God and each other. “A lot of church members who are singing “Standing on the Promises” are just sitting on the premises.” Sr. Monique Rysavy Margaret Anne Yost nursed for 35 years. Returning back to school I completed classes from the Red River College in the areas of Gerontology, Bereavement, Death and Dying. For twelve years I worked in bereavement support at a funeral home. It was at the Regina General Hospital that I completed two unites of Clinical Pastoral Education. (CPE) At present I am employed as an Interim Parish Worker at Good Shepherd in Melville. I also enjoy my role as homemaker, wife, mother and grandmother.
The Sask. farmer is trained, moves on and settles in Submitted by Kaare Askildt, former Preeceville area farmer in training. This one of a series on getting settled in Hazel Dell. It has been an interesting summer so far! Hot one week, cool the following week, then onto wet and dry and the weatherman must have been napping, as he has yet to get it right. He forecasts sunny hot weather with very little wind. We get thunderclaps, lightning and tornado warnings! Oh well, I trust the weather will come around just nicely in time for harvest, so we can get the hay bales we need to feed the horses over the coming winter. As I’m looking out of the office window, I see my horse Spur nibbling on Marion’s peas! Marion had planted some peas next to the barn. My mind kicked in to automatic, and I “flew” out of my chair and through the front door, and I was half way to Spur when I realized that I did not bring my cane with me as I was hobbling along as fast as I could. Spur just looked at me, checking me out from top to bottom. He was probably looking to see if Marion had put a hobble on my legs the way I was walking. Hobbles are used on horses when there are no fences around, that way they cannot wander away too far. The first time I saw a horse with hobbles on his front legs, I thought the horse had been arrested, and that the cops had put hoof cuffs on him. I asked Marion what dastardly deed the horse had done to be arrested like that. That’s when I learned that the hobbles are used to limit any wayward wanderings by a horse. As I got up to Spur, he turned and walked away, realizing of course that I was unable to chase him. There was only one thing to do. Get the bucket with the alfalfa pellets and entice him to follow me. I picked up my cane in the process,
and approached Spur again with the cane in one hand and the bucket in the other. I only have two legs, but one is not functioning at a 100 per cent, whereas Spur has four legs and none of them are impeded, so I had to keep him from running away by tricking or enticing him. Spur responded to the bucket trick and was determined to put his nose into the bucket for some treats, and I was equally determined that he had to wait until I got him back into the pen. I was wearing my loose fitting “comfy” pants that have a tendency to slide down my legs now that I have lost all that weight. As Spur followed me shoulder to
shoulder snorting his demand into my ear, I had to take an occasional half step and pull up my sliding pants with the cane hand, twisting my body like a pretzel! This caused me to have to shoulder block him a couple of times, which resulted in a lot of discomfort, but I was able to hold him off. We used to have a quick release on the chain for the gate, but my wife in her wisdom had replaced that with a carbine screw link. I had no choice but to pour the contents of the bucket over the fence, and Spur just looked at me as if I had lost my mind, when the two other horses dove for the morsels! After hav-
ing fumbled to unscrew the carbine link, I was able to open the gate, and Spur ran inside the pen chasing the others away from “his” treats! I know that my wife is a horseperson, because: • She clucks to her car when she drives up a hill. • Her horse’s hair is in better condition than her own. • The house might be a mess, but the barn is as neat as a pin. • Her nice clothes are the ones without horse hair all over them. • She attends a formal party in cowboy boots and an adorned cowboy hat. And then another true story of an old cowboy: Some guys were all at a Cowboy camp. No one
wanted to room with Bob, because he snored so badly. They decided it wasn’t fair to make one of them stay with him the whole time, so they voted to take turns. The first guy slept in Bob’s room and came to breakfast the next morning with his hair a mess and his eyes all bloodshot. Bob was fresh as a daisy. They said: “Man, what happened to you?” He said: “Bob snored so loudly, I just sat up all night and watched him.” The next night it was a different guy’s turn. In the morning, same thing, hair all standing up, eyes all bloodshot, but Bob looked refreshed. They said: “Man, what happened to you? You look awful!” He said: ‘Man,
that Bob shook the roof with his snoring. I watched him all night.” The third night was Fred’s turn. Fred was a tanned, older cowboy, a man’s man. The next morning he came to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. “Good morning!” he said. They couldn’t believe it. Bob looked like he had been dragged through a knothole backwards. They said to the old cowboy: “Man, what happened?” He said: “Well, we got ready for bed. I went over and tucked Bob into bed, patted him on the butt, stroked his cheek and kissed him good night. Bob sat up all night and watched me!” With age comes wisdom!
Bond investing 101 – all you need to know Over the past five years, volatile stock markets have triggered a massive shift from equities (i.e. stock investments) to bonds (including exchange traded bond funds (ETFs) and bond mutual funds) as investors have sought to reduce the level of risk in their portfolios. This move has driven bond prices higher and bond yields (i.e. the annual interest income received from a bond expressed as a percentage of its current value) lower. Often overlooked by investors, investment grade bonds (which exclude guaranteed investments such as Canada Savings bonds) are interest rate sensitive. As a result when interest rates increase, their value drops and yield will rise (with the opposite occurring when interest rates fall). With interest rates at historical lows and a recovering economy (that is expected to result in an increase in inflation), a prolonged rise in interest rates (and corresponding decline in bond prices) seems inevitable. Unfortunately (according to a recent CSA survey), most Canadian investors do not understand how bonds work (most notably their risks). Without this
PLANNING FOR PROSPERITY by Darryl Prociuk email@example.com knowledge many may suffer significant losses to their portfolios before they even realize what has happened. When a bond is pur-
the bond’s “coupon”). What most investors fail to understand is that after a bond is issued it continues to trade in the open bond market where
“While there are many benefits to investing in bonds, investors need to understand how bonds work, their risks, and the investment strategies that can be employed to minimize the risks (interest rate risk, inflation risk, credit risk, etc.)” chased, the buyer (or bondholder) is in effect lending money for a specific period of time to the borrower (or bond “issuer”). Under the terms of the bond the bondholder will receive the loan amount (the “face value” of the bond) at its maturity plus regular interest payments (as specified in
its price and yield will constantly change (both upwards and downwards) in order to stay in line with current interest rates. While falling rates will result in a bond appreciating in value (or selling at a “premium”), rising rates will lead to a bond declining in value (or selling at a “dis-
count”). For instance, consider what happens to a bond having a value of $1,000 and a coupon rate of four per cent (i.e. it pays $40 in interest annually) when interest rates rise. Now an investor is able to purchase a similar bond having a five per cent coupon (i.e. it pays $50 annually). Since the coupon rate on a bond does not change, it is its price which must fall as the interest received is less than what a new investor would receive by purchasing a bond at the current rates. The amount by which a bond will drop in value is primarily determined by the bond’s maturity (i.e. the longer the bond has to its maturity the greater the drop in value). The standard means by which to estimate a bond’s movement in response to a change in interest rates (i.e. its “interest rate risk”) is “duration”. Denoted in years, duration “takes into account a number of factors about a bond” (including its maturity). The higher the number, the greater the sensitivity of a bond to changes in interest rates. The general rule is that “for every +/- one per cent move in interest rates, a bond’s price will move inversely
(opposite) by a percentage equal to that of its duration”. For instance, a bond with duration of six years will decrease in value by six per cent with a one per cent rise in interest rates (with the opposite happening in the case of an interest rate decline). The duration of bonds held within a mutual fund or ETF can readily be found in the fund’s fact sheet or by checking the fund company’s website. Free online calculators may be used to calculate the duration of an individual bond. While there are many benefits to investing in bonds, investors need to understand how bonds work, their risks, and the investment strategies that can be employed to minimize the risks (interest rate risk, inflation risk, credit risk, etc.) Of utmost importance is the construction and regular rebalancing of a portfolio that is custom tailored to the individual risk tolerance and financial goals of the investor. The use of a financial professional is recommended. Darryl Prociuk CFP, R.F.P., CLU, TEP is a Registered Financial Planner and may be contacted at dprociuk@ mymts.net

Season Preview: Terrier repeat likely By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer Normally losing three of your top scorers from an SJHL title winning team would be a sign that a rebuild is coming the following season. That is not the case for the 2013-14 Yorkton Terriers, who might actually manage to be better in their season defending the Canalta Cup with the deepest team in the SJHL bringing the majority of the key parts of their championship team back to the Farrell Agencies Arena for another year. That doesn’t mean that the Terriers won’t be saying goodbye to some big talents. Their top three regular season scorers. Nathan Murray (42 points), Jeremy Johnson (28 goals, 41 points) and Patrick Martens (23 goals, 41 points) all graduate, with Johnson being the biggest loss as he was the catalyst for the title clinching goals in triple overtime of Game Five and Game Six in last year’s final. WHL veteran blueliners Austin Bourhis and John Neibrandt will be the two departures from the blueline as the pair graduated and signed with the University of Regina Cougars. Throw in the loss of Canalta Cup CoMVP Dawson McCauley between the pipes and you could write the Terriers off in other situations, but this is not an ordinary team. With the depth of a team assembled by head coach Trent Cassan and general manager Don Chesney building a squad that they thought would be on schedule to win in 2013-14 arriving one year ahead of schedule last season, the Terriers are loaded with the best team in the SJHL on paper heading into this weekend’s season opener.
Tayler Thompson, Tyler Giebel, and Curtis Oliver all return as 20 year olds alongside the return of Kailum Gervais who was reassigned from the WHL’s Red Deer Rebels after a week with the team.
Those four will be bookended by as many as three lines worth of returning forwards (if not more) this season. Cont. on Page 17.
TERRIERS CAPTAIN DEVON MCMULLEN returns for his final Junior season for the Yorkton Terriers as they eye a Canalta Cup repeat after winning their first SJHL title since 2006 last year. For more of the SJHL 2013-14 season preview see Page 17. – File photo
Raiders make a statement in blowout win By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
Having a bye week and no exhibition game to start their 2013 season, their second in the Moose Jaw High School Football League, the Yorkton Regional High School Sr. Raiders felt they would be able to show that their appearance in the League Championship was no beginners luck. Losing league MVP and quarterback Dalton Fichtner and top linebacker Layne Hull to their 2013 graduating class left questions, but several new faces in new positions answered those questions in a hurry at Century Field on Saturday afternoon. The Raiders, who had just one loss in the MJHSFL before their championship loss to Moose Jaw Peacock, started off 2013 with a bang. Putting the final nails in Moose Jaw Vanier’s coffin before the second half even started. Three passing touchdowns from new quarterback David Balysky to the returning Raiders leading rusher in Zak Kais and new receiving weapon Alex Poppoff put the YRHS up 45-0 after two quarters. In the second half head coach Roby Sharpe worked in the second teamers with the game in the bag, it didn’t make much of a difference as the Raiders finished the game with a lopsided final score of 59-7. For Yorkton it was a reassuring result. “I had mixed emotions about the game all week” says Raiders head coach Roby Sharpe. “On one hand at practice we have looked really good and I felt that we would come out with a great start to the season but you never know what you have until you play a game.”
YRHS Football The Yorkton Regional High School Raiders football program is back for another hard hitting season in the Moose Jaw High School Football League. After a one loss season took the Raiders to the MJHSFL final in 2012 where they fell short to Moose Jaw Peacock the Raiders will be looking to start the season off with two wins after a 59-7 blowout win over Moose Jaw Vanier. On Saturday they will be playing the Swift Current Colts in Week Three of the MJHSFL season. Game will be at Century Field. Time to be announced at a later date. ALEX POPOFF takes it to the house for one of the Raiders many touchdowns in a 59-7 win over Vanier.

Page 16A - THE NEWS REVIEW - Thursday, September 19, 2013
Reminder that athletes are not always role models Last week the province erupted with the news that Dwight Anderson and Taj Smith were arrested following an altercation at Pure Nightclub in Regina. The news, following the Riders loss to the Bombers in the Banjo Bowl cause mass outrage towards Smith and Anderson with much of the province choosing to get on their moral high horse and condemn the players for being poor role models. There was also the issue of the Riders having some sort of “Code of Conduct” that the two players (and another little used wider receiver) violated in getting into a physical altercation in public and subsequently charged with assault as a result. I am here to tell you that those people who were outraged need to be reminded of something that will make their sports fandom a million times easier: Athletes. Are. Not. Always. Role. Models. It is something I have touched on before and it is something I will likely feel the need to touch on again and again, but it is something fans often forget. The athletes you cheer for are only human, and they often aren’t thinking about what you think in the heat of a personal crisis or when they are making their own life choices. Especially when they are in the process of getting into a barfight. That is also completely fair. The Saskatchewan Roughriders do a lot for
Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig the province of Saskatchewan and the communities that support them. From attending Football Night in Saskatchewan banquets to raise money for minor football programs across the province to visiting Saskatchewan schools each year. There is no argument against the fact that the Riders give back to their fans on a daily basis. In fact Kory Sheets came down to Yorkton this week for a Haas Nissan event. I can personally tell you that the leading rusher in the NFL wouldn’t be driving to a middle of nowhere town in any league market to go take photos and talk with fans on a Tuesday night.
So why turn your back on the players that you cheer for on Friday and Saturday nights when they have a lapse in judgement? Would you do the same to your friends in your walk of life? You probably would try to look at things from their point of view, so why is it any different when it is an athlete, especially ones in the CFL who make around the same amount of money on average as me and you? Is that truly fair? Dwight Anderson and Taj Smith didn’t take the high road at Pure that fateful night, but so have countless of other adults in similar situations. They were just lucky enough to not be Saskatchewan Roughriders when their less than graceful moments occurred. The Leader Post doesn’t show up when I see the police breaking up a fight out of any Saskatchewan nightclub in any other circumstance and I am sure all three players involved in this situation all feel remorse and shame for their actions. It is time to let it go and realize that at the end of the day, professional athletes are people, not characters in indirect life lessons for your children or yourself. Leave them be in moments like this and focus on the hard work and dedication they put into their craft if you are looking for anything to focus on. After all that hard work and dedication to making you stand up and cheer for three hours is why they are role models anyway.
Riders in danger of losing homefield advantage in West Division By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer If the Riders thought things couldn’t go any worse after their Banjo Bowl defeat to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, they were dead wrong. After a lead up to Saturday night’s game against the Toronto Argonauts filled with questions about the legal issues of key players Dwight Anderson and Taj Smith, the Riders didn’t do any favors in lifting the spirits of the Rider Nation by allowing the Argos to score 19 points in the final quarter to take a 31-29 victory without the services of Ricky Ray. For Saskatchewan the loss came at an even big-
ger price of losing Kory Sheets to injury. Sheets touched the ball just four times before leaving the game and with “Mission 2K” put on hiatus, the Riders found out just how big of an impact their running back makes. Saskatchewan posted an apalling -12 rushing yards without Sheets in the game, something that allowed the Argos to get back into the ballgame despite being down 23-12 entering the final quarter. The 2012 version of Darian Durant coming out to play didn’t help matters either as the quarterback threw three interceptions on Saturday, an out of character day for Durant who had appeared to have
put his ball security issues behind him this season. With no Sheets and no Weston Dressler, it was clear that Durant was having troubles finding ways to put points on the board in the second half. The loss wouldn’t have been hard to swallow if the Calgary Stampeders failed to come back against Henry Burris and the Tiger-Cats to move to 9-2, putting them at first in the West Division right as Saskatchewan enters
the most difficult part of its schedule. Three games against the B.C. Lions and a road date with Calgary on the second last week of the season will now largely decide the Riders fate. With Kory Sheets confirmed to be out of the lineup this Sunday when the Riders host the Lions, head coach Corey Chamblin may come to regret dropping two in a row to Toronto and Winnipeg, especially the Toronto game consid-
ering that the Riders were up by two scores going into the fourth quarter at home, a position in which they should easily win. Calgary has a much easier road than both the Riders and the Lions when it comes to clinching the all important first round bye and homefield advantage in the West Final. Already a game ahead, Calgary plays B.C. twice and Saskatchewan at home, but also gets to play the Argos and the Blue Bomb-
ers at home, with a game at hand the Riders now need to hope that they can win out until their October 26 game in Calgary if they want to host the West Final. That homefield advantage is something that shouldn’t be taken for granted, Saskatchewan should know. They lost in McMahon Stadium last year in the playoffs. If they want to avoid going there again they will need to turn things around.
Whatever you need done, you’ll find the solutions right here!

Terriers season preview: expect more of the same
Battlefords North Stars: Might not have been one of the most impressive teams in 2013, but they get most of their leading scorers
and blueliners back as well as their starting goaltender, their rebuild should pay off in 2013/14. Flin Flon Bombers: Best goalie in the league in Devin Buffalo and the electric scoring Brett Boehm will have Flin Flon thinking title. Humboldt Broncos: Last year’s North champs will be thinner, but you can’t count them out. Kindersley Klippers: Will be better than last year’s version, how much better is debateable. Melfort Mustangs: A playoff team last year, expect Melfort to be back in the postseason. Nipawin Hawks: A good fanbase at The Cage and the scoring of Tad Kozun will keep the Hawks competitive. Estevan Bruins: A new coach and a new atmosphere should do the Bruins good. Look out for former Harvest top scorer Lynnden Pastachak as abreakout rookie.

rebuilding. Notre Dame Hounds: Losing a handful of players in training camp makes things worse for a team that was all in to win last year. Melville Millionaires:
The winner, Volker Tobias, rattled off a score of 29 out of 30 targets, just one miss away from a perfect 100 per cent score to win the 2013 Hooty Owl. In second place came Matt Stuart from Manitoba who was equally as accurate, but finished just one target short with a score of 28 out of 30 targets. In third place came Doug Harrower, also from Manitoba, with a score of 27 out of 30. All extremely impressive scores given the fact that they were shooting at nightime. The Yorkton Trap Club thanks all who came out.

Yorkton Lions Club
The Yorkton Trap Club held its annual Yorkton Hooty Owl Trap Shoot earlier this month at the Yorkton Trap Club to end its 2013 season. Nearly 25 shooters from across Saskatchewan and Manitoba came out to participate in eight events held over the course of three days. The highlight of the weekend’s events was the annual Hooty Owl Night Shoot, an event that takes place at night under floodlights, giving each individual shooter an added challenge at
dealing with the perception change of shooting under floodlights. The fun, yet competitive event sees 15 targets shot from 16 yards away to start the event. Shooters then are given a handicap yardage from 20-27 yards based on their first round scores to add even more difficulty to the event. Shooting from 27 yards at night is quite a difficult task, but the podium finishers of the 2013 Hooty Owl didn’t seem too affected by the change from daylight to floodlight and darkness, nearly hitting each target.
La Ronge Ice Wolves: After a good run of titles, La Ronge is still rebuilding with a new coach. Weyburn Red Wings: The Dwight McMillan era is over in Weyburn, but that only means more
Went all in on going for the SJHL title for the past two seasons so don’t expect the Highway 10 battle to be very competitive this year as the Millionaires go young to retool in 2013/14.

2013 Hooty Owl a success By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
YORKTON TERRIERS players celebrate a preseason goal in their final exhibition game at home. The season starts Saturday with Yorkton hosting Weyburn.

A potential X-Factor at forward is the 94 born Dylan Johnson, the brother of Jeremy saw stretches where he was a frequent healthy scratch last season, but when he was put into the lineup he showed the same instinct for goals that his older brother has. A bigger body presence than Jeremy, Dylan can be counted on to provide some timely goals in front of the net while replacing Murray as the Terriers top power forward. Where the Terriers are the deepest has to be on the blueline where they return three speedy offensive defensemen with NCAA D-I prospects. Captain Devon McMullen returns for his final season along side the Norrish twins Brady and Chase. The do it all defensemen may not big in stature, but they have shown that they have even more speed to show off in the preseason and will once again charge the Terriers attack with their speed and offensive instincts from the blueline. Dylan Baer will also return for an increased role as will Dallas Rossiter and Nick Sandy, two players who led the Terriers in healthy scratches last year that will be breakout players this season. Goaltending might be the biggest question mark with the loss of MaCauley, who appears to be on track to start for the Regina Pats this season. Losing a 6 5’ goal-
tender who outdueled 20 year olds and now NCAA D-I goalies Matt Hrynkiw and Alex Wakaluk during the Terriers final two playoff series is a huge loss, but Trent Cassan has the luxury of knowing that Kale Thomson was his starter before MacAuley took the job last season. If Thomson can be consistent during his 20 year old season he will be one of the league’s top goalies. With teams across the league losing so many key players, the Terriers are the clear favorites. Anything can happen over the course of a long season, especially in Junior A hockey where WHL teams can take, or give top talent back at any course of the season things can change quickly. One thing is for certain though, the deepest team in the SJHL will once again have the depth that made them so dangerous during their run to last year’s Canalta Cup. If their returning players stay on the curve and improve even slightly from their 2012-13 form, expect the Yorkton Terriers to be back at the Western Canada Cup and contending for their first appearance in the Royal Bank Cup in nearly a decade. Rest of the SJHL Preview:

Sacred Heart Saints girls soccer 1-2 in home tournament By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
Starting their 2013 girls soccer season, the Sacred Heart Saints invited some top competition to their pitch over the weekend. The tournament consisted of 4 teams in the 3A category (schools with female enrollment greater than 200) (Regina Campbell, Prince Albert Carlton, Prince Albert St Mary, Yorkton Regional), and two teams in the 2A category (schools with female enrolment 200 or less) (Sacred Heart, Notre Dame.) The majority of 3A category schools giving the Saints a good test for their 2A season. The Saints who finished second in provincials last year, opened up the tournament with a thrilling 6-5 win over Regina Campbell in a match that featured a ton of offensive fireworks. Rita Fetsch, the Saints best offensive players during the 2012 season scored four goals in the win while Bryce Sherring and Kristen
Jonassen potted the other two goals in the win. In the other two first round matches Prince Albert Carlton beat Notre Dame 3-2 on penalty kicks and Prince Albert St. Maryâ€™s drubbed the YRHS girls 9-1. Up against two of the top 3A girls schools in the province the Saints fought valiantly in the championship round on Saturday, but eventually fell 3-1 to St. Maryâ€™s in the semifinal match before losing a much closer game in the afternoon to Carlton 3-2. Bryce Sherring was the top scorer on Saturday scoring goals for the Saints in both matches while Rita Fetsch scored another goal for the Saints against Carlton. For the Saints, although they won one game and lost two, they continued to improve every game, something that impressed the Saints coaches. They will need to increase the speed at which they play, get better with their first touch, and improve their overall fitness in order to com-
pete with the best 3A schools. Kristen Jonassen played outstanding in the central defense position and Bryce Sherring and Rita Fetsch produced some excellent and creative offense to account for most of the scoring. Rookies JJ Chogata, Allison Berge and Lexi Guy all impressed coaching staff, giving the Saints signs that they will improve as the year goes along with a talented crop of younger players. Saints next action will be on the weekend, they will travel to Moose Jaw to play five games in the Moose Jaw tournament, one of the best HS tournaments in the province.
SHHS LADY SAINTS SOCCER hosted their annual tournament over the weekend. Some of the top teams in the province were in action with Sacred finishing with one win and two losses on the weekend.

W T Lady Saints kick off volleyball season
By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer With the school year underway, Sacred Heart Sr. Girls Volleyball team took part in the 32 team U of R Autumn Classic. SHHS took on Lumsden to begin the tournament losing the first set 15 â€“ 25 but the Lady Saints battled back winning the second set 25 â€“ 18 to force a third set. Lumsden seized the momentum early and never looked back winning 6 â€“ 15. The Saints faced Invermay next winning 25 â€“ 17, dropped the second set 17 â€“ 25 but battled back to win the match 15 â€“ 10 in the third. The final match of the night was against a strong team from Campbell High School dropping two straight which gave the team third in the pool. Saturday morning the Saints faced Indian Head. The Lady Saints struggled to wake up and lost in three sets The Saints then faced Langham win-
ning in straight sets to advance to the consolation pool B-Side semis. In the first set SHHS lost 22 â€“ 25, set two went our way winning 25 â€“ 23 but lost the third 8 â€“ 15. In the Bronze match SHHS again faced Invermay and again went to three games. In the first set the lead changed several times but eventually Invermay won 25 â€“ 27. SHHS battled back to win the second set 25 â€“ 22 and kept the momentum to win 15-11. Coach Perry Enns says â€œI was very happy with our performance this weekend. We played a lot of volleyball and all of our players got some court time even the rookies. We do need to work on our consistency and our ability to win when we have momentum rather than always going to a third set.â€? Next weekend the Lady Saints are off to Weyburn for a 12 team tournament.

Raider football starts with a bang in home win over Vanier Cont from Page 15. Yorkton opted to forego the option of an exhibition game, deciding as far back as last spring that taking advantage of their first week bye was more valuable for a Raiders team that was banged up by the end of 2012. That longer wait to the season opener appeared to spark an inspired performance out of the Orange, who held Vanier scoreless until a fake field goal broke the ice as time expired. Against a Vanier team that rallied to beat the Swift Current Colts in Week One, the result pleased Sharpe, who made sure it was clear that his team was by no means trying to run up the score. “Being up 45-0 at halftime is a tough situation in football because it isn’t like hockey or basketball where you can milk the clock or avoid getting hit and coast
through things, if you slow down you can get hurt so we brought in some guys who didn’t get a chance to play in the first half and we still made some plays which was great to see,” says Sharpe who pointed out that the lack of a Week One game required the offense to get reps to catch up to the rest of the league. Sharpe also wanted to remind his players that nothing should be taken for granted and that the Raiders still have a long way to go before they can think about lifting the league championship. “This league is going to be tough and we need to keep on working to get where we want to be by the end of the year,” says Sharpe who pointed to the defending champions in Moose Jaw Peackock as the Raiders top threat to lifting the league title this season. That didn’t appear to be the case as the YRHS’ numbers were the stuff
of early league title contenders. Zak Kais ran for 181 yards and two touchdowns and a caught a pass for a 35 yard touchdown to pick up where he left off for the Raiders before an ankle injury slowed him down in the 2012 playoffs. Grade 11 rookie Alex Popoff had two catches for 88 yards and a touchdown for the Raiders. The catalyst for the Raiders high flying offensive put together by offensive coordinator Jason Boyda was their new quarterback in David Balysky. Balysky had 70 yards rushing and two touchdowns in addition to his aerial attack, working all winter and summer to learn the Raiders complex offensive schemes, Balysky was more than pleased with how his debut under center went. “I was nervous before the game, but I knew
ROBY SHARPE (middle) gives the YRHS Sr. Raiders a postgame speech after their 59-7 win over Moose Jaw Vanier to start the 2013 season. The Raiders will have to deal with the absence of their head coach who is away on a leadership conference this weekend when they take on the Swift Current Colts. that we had the right offense and the right players to execute and it was great to get out
there and put up as many points as we did” says Balysky. The Raiders will be
back at Century Field this weekend, taking on the Swift Current Colts.
SHHS Saints host home vball tournament By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer
The Saints Senior Boys Volleyball team hosted its home tournament on September 13 & 14 at the Halo Dome. Eight teams were in attendance: Sacred Heart, Esterhazy, Yorkton Regional, Langenburg, Humboldt, Kincaid, Roblin and Melville. After the round robin matches, Esterhazy finished 1st, Roblin 2nd, Kincaid 3rd and Melville 4th. These four teams then advanced to the semi-playoff round. Esterhazy defeated Melville 25-20, 25-13 and Kincaid beat out Roblin winning 25-14, 25-22. In the bronze match Melville narrowly won against Roblin going three sets 25-21, 23-25 and 18-16. In the gold match Esterhazy and Kincaid battled hard with huge hits going both ways. After three close sets, Esterhazy prevailed winning the last set 19-17. “This was the first tournament of the year which allowed players to improve drastically throughout the tournament. Our Saints team this year is very young while we only have two returning grade 12 players. Although we have a strong group of grade 10’s who are looking promising,” says coach Curtis Moen. Grade 10 player Kade Johnson did a great job of setting for the team while Bryan Buzinski held his own at the net stuffing many opposing grade 12 players. Grade 12 captain Jaedon Pellatt and grade 11 Riley Kerr led the team in some strong hitting over the weekend. It was nice to see improvements by the whole team” coach Curtis Moen. “I would also like to thank Smith Steel, Ram Industries, Leon’s Manufacturing and Premier Cabinets for being our team sponsors this year.” Next game action for the Saints team is on September 27-28 @ the University of Regina.
