TAKE THE CHALLENGE! – It’s been garnering plenty of attention across the globe and Yorkton recently got in on the action in a big way. On Thursday around 100 members of the local business community gathered to take part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The Ice Bucket Challenge involves dumping a bucket of ice water on someone’s head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research. The challenge dares nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and challenging others to do the same. On Thursday staff at Canadian Tire along with, Joe Beeverz, the Parkland Mall, City officials, members of the Yorkton Fire Department, EMS, RCMP, the Chamber and community gathered to get soaked and raise funds. The event was a big success. If you would like to learn more or donate visit: http://als.ca/ Pictured directly right, councillor Les Arnelien and Mayor Bob Maloney take the plunge.

College funded for employment project Yorkton/Melville MP Garry Breitkreuz has announced the funding of a local project that is expected to help local students gain employment. Recognizing the need to assist local youth in finding employment and preparing for the future, the federal government has committed over $130,000 to the Parkland College for a project entitled Building Long Term Sustainable Employment Skills for Success. The funding is the result of a successful application by the Parkland College to the federal government’s Skills Link Program 2014-2016 which is a part of the Youth Employment Strategy. “Skills Link is a client-centered program that provides funding for employers and organizations to offer activities to youth facing barriers to employment,� says Breitkreuz. “This project, which will be administered by the

Parkland College, will help youth right here develop the skills and knowledge necessary to fully participate in the current and future labour markets. These are life-long skills and tools that, if learned and used, have the ability to change lives.� Beginning this September, the College, with the co-operation and assistance of the Yorkton Tribal Council, will begin working with 24 area youth to help them overcome barriers to employment. The participants selected will have identified their need for skills enhancement, developed an employment action plan and confirmed their commitment to the plan. The 30-week program will include Life Skills and Employability Skills workshops, action plan assessments, and work experience for five days per week for a total of 30 hours per week for six weeks. The work placements will be chosen based on the interests

Parkland/Treaty 4 deal inked Parkland College and Treaty 4 Student Success Program Inc. (T4SSP) have announced they have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that establishes a formal relationship to improve pathways to post-secondary education for First Nations students in the Parkland Region. The Treaty 4 area covers much of southern Saskatchewan. T4SSP is an educational organization that serves 11 First Nations in eastcentral and southeast Saskatchewan: Fishing Lake, Cote, Keeseekoose, Sakimay, Ocean Man, Kahkewistahaw, Ochapowace, Cowessess, White Bear, Muskowekwan, and Kawacatoose First Nations. “This agreement will open new doorways for the young people in our First Nations,� says Fishing Lake First Nation councillor Sheryl Kayseas. “Through this understanding, we have

opportunities to build bridges of support from the First Nations schools to the many learning pathways available at Parkland College.� “This partnership will be a mentorship and think-tank and exploratory station,� adds Lori Whiteman, Executive Director of Treaty 4 Student Success Program. “It will be a learning centre for us to grow together in support of the young people attending our schools and the Parkland College campuses.� Parkland College has long partnered with First Nations bands and tribal councils in the Parkland region to develop and deliver education and training programs onreserve. “We look forward to a continued trusting relationship that will build on our past partnerships,� Parkland College President Dr. Fay Myers comments. “We will work together to provide

information, opportunities, and support to First Nations students and to help choose their career path for the future.� “The increase in education opportunities and support for First Nations students is essential to the economic development and sustainability of our communities and the province,� adds Lydia Cyr, Chair of the Parkland College Board of Governors. The MOU signing was held in conjunction with Treaty 4’s annual school year kick-off. The day began with a traditional pipe ceremony and included a keynote speaker and professional development sessions for staff from the First Nations schools. The Treaty 4 Student Success Program Inc. (T4SSP) is an educational initiative serving the First Nations of the Treaty 4 territory. Currently, 11 Saskatchewan Treaty 4 schools have committed to participate

in T4SSP through a letter of commitment from their Chief and Council. Treaty 4 Chiefs recognize that significant gaps in learning exist for First Nations students and emphasize that culture and traditional values, woven through the mandates of student retention, literacy and numeracy, will support balanced and significant success for all children. A necessary component to student learning is ensuring that students benefit from rich, meaningful and relevant learning experiences, within secure learning environments. The T4SSP is committed to the development and delivery of sustainable educational processes that place children and communities at the centre of common Treaty Four school improvement.

and skills demonstrated by the participants. Most of the placements will occur in the service sector, tourism sector and the trades based on the labour market needs in Yorkton and area. “Our area continues to experience growth in a number of sectors and there are many opportunities for gainful employment,� adds Breitkreuz. “The jobs are here, but connecting the line between potential employee and employer is sometimes not automatic.� According to the Labour Market Bulletin, May 2014, the current unemployment rate for YorktonMelville area is 5.3 per cent, however the rate of unemployment for youth age 15-24 in the area is at 7.5 per cent. As of April 2014, the off-reserve Aboriginal unemployment rate for Saskatchewan was 11.3 per cent which is more than twice as high as the unemployment rate for non-Aboriginal persons (11.3 per cent vs. 5.3 per cent). This project will focus on assisting Aboriginal people to bridge that gap. “Saskatchewan’s strong employment creation continues to have a positive impact on the construction industry. As well, mining and food processing are emerging sectors in Yorkton and area, with a potash mining operation expected to be completed by 2017 immediately south of Yorkton, and two new food processing plants just west of the city having gone into operation in recent years. These sectors have opened up many employment possibilities for people of the area and will continue to do so for some time. “Providing our youth with the opportunity to see what’s out there and teaching them how to reach those jobs and careers is invaluable. That is what this project endeavors to do, and why our government whole-heartedly stands behind it.�

Planning your exit strategy

While your business may be running along smoothly today, an important, but often overlooked facet of any successful business, is putting funds away for life after business. Can you count on the proceeds from the sale of your business to keep you financially independent during your retirement? How will your business be affected by significant challenges including increased competition, rapidly advancing technology and changing regulations? It is important for business owners to have a separate savings strategy to ensure they have sufficient funds for their retirement. In the case of a corporation where one of the shareholders is retiring, funding to repurchase the shares and provide income to the retiring shareholder may come from a number of sources. A loan may be arranged at the time of retirement by the corporation with the proceeds paid to the retiring shareholder in exchange for the outstanding shares. This strategy may place a significant burden on the business and its ability to grow in the future. If there are a small number of shareholders this strategy may also have significant tax implications for the remaining shareholder(s). Using the firm’s existing cash flow at the time of retirement to fund the repurchase of shares is another strategy to be

PLANNING FOR PROSPERITY by Darryl Prociuk dprociuk@mymts.net considered. This strategy while potentially workable depends on the available cash flows. This may place a burden on the corporation and its future growth and with few shareholders may result in a potential tax liability for those remaining. Accumulating funds within the corporation on an annual basis in anticipation of retirement may be another means to fund a share purchase. Funds accumulated within an active company enjoy a favourable rate of taxation and may result in a greater accumulation. However a deferred tax liability may be created for the remaining shareholders once these funds are used for the re-purchase of shares. Furthermore, any funds which are held within the corporation leaves them subject to the claims of creditors. Funds accumulated on an annual basis outside of the business can avoid many of these potential problems. As mentioned above, the limited liability of an owner of an incorporated company may not be sufficient to protect the owner’s personal assets in the event a per-

sonal guarantee has been given by an owner. Segregated funds if properly structured, can provide the required protection for non-registered funds. Offered by insurance companies, segregated funds are similar to mutual funds in their returns and selection but provide additional benefits such as creditor proofing which will ensure your funds are not at risk to the claims of creditors. The returns generated on these funds would be taxable both annually and upon disposition in the hands of the individual. Sheltering funds within an RRSP plan, generally protected from creditors, can also be an effective option. Because taxation may considerably reduce the investment’s return, tax efficiency, in addition to creditor proofing, is an important consideration in selecting a retirement savings strategy. A product available for a number of years now gaining in popularity as new features are introduced and its appropriate uses are more clearly understood is the Universal Life insurance policy. This permanent form of insur-

ance has both an insurance and investment component. Premiums after the cost of insurance have been paid are deposited into the investment portion of the policy and may be invested in a variety of guaranteed and variable investment options. Once deposited these funds are effectively sheltered from taxation until withdrawn at which time withdrawals can potentially be made on a tax advantaged basis. The policy’s flexibility lies in its ability to adjust both its face value and investment options to provide a tax effective means to save funds for retirement. As is the case with segregated funds, all funds within a Universal Life contract are protected from the claims of creditors in certain circumstances. Particularly when formalized within a shareholders agreement, a retirement funding strategy provides the retiring shareholder with the security that funds will be set aside and the remaining shareholder with the security of knowing that the issue of ownership has been addressed. Furthermore, the tax implications can be assessed and addressed in advance.

There’s strength in numbers When all is said and done we are all Canadians. It just makes sense to encourage and nurture fair and free trade amongst the provinces for the betterment of Canada as a whole. In keeping with that thought, Premiers Brad Wall, Dave Hancock and Christy Clark recently agreed to review the list of exceptions to the New West Partnership Trade Agreement (NWPTA) to make trade in the New West even more open. “While exceptions can be important in areas like occupational health and safety, it makes sense to review these from time to time to harmonize those that create unnecessary barriers to trade,” says Premier Christy Clark. “For example, if we can all adopt the highest standard among our jurisdictions for things like first aid kits that will make trade across the region easier.” The premiers say the partnership has undertaken significant work to make it easier for businesses to operate across the region by harmonizing trucking rules and regulations, creating a single window for business registration, and ensuring consistent rules across the three provinces. “In today’s businesses environment companies and workers often cross provincial borders,” adds Premier Brad Wall. “We all have a strong interest in ensuring worker health and safety and it makes sense to have a common set of rules for businesses and workers to uphold these safety objectives.” Premiers noted the federal government’s interest in internal trade and expressed hope that the federal government will come to the table with as much ambition regarding federal barriers as premiers have in the New West. There’s strength in numbers and consistency. Let’s work together to ensure we achieve that for a better, stronger Canada.

A little common sense goes a long way I’m not anti-gun, I’ll say that straight off the bat. I’ve suggested before that gun laws in states may be a bit too lax and I’ve taken some flack for it but seriously, what’s happening to plain old common sense when it comes to the use of firearms? A 39-year-old man – a shooting instructor to boot (although I really have to question his qualifications) – died earlier this week after being shot on the gun range. Accidents can, and do, happen in spite of all the precautions that may be taken, but in this case it all comes down to carelessness and lack of thought if you ask me. Why? The instructor handed over a fully automatic Uzi to a nine year old girl! Where to begin...? I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned in previous columns I grew up in a military family. My dad was in the Airforce and I have four brothers. Needless to say, there weren’t a lot of girly, girl activities going on. I went hunting, fishing and did all the other stuff the guys did. I loved it. During it all though, we were taught to respect guns, how to use them properly, how to store them and about every element of safety that surrounded them. They were not toys nor were they ever to be treated as such. And

they were certainly not something that was handed over without close supervision and plenty of rules. So going back to the story... I can see taking the nine year old gal to the range educating her. Her Shannon Deveau and parents were on site with her by the way. But did she really need to shoot an automatic Uzi? By herself? Anyone who has shot a rifle before knows what can happen. There’s recoil. Imagine if you’re a little girl? With an instructor who tells you after firing just one shot – “All right, full auto!” Do you think perhaps size, strength, inexperience and surprise came into play? It’s all hindsight now but when she pulled the trigger, the kick back sent the gun over her head pointing to her instructor who was shot in his head. He died Monday shortly after being airlifted to the hospital in Las Vegas. What a needless loss of life. Is it the fault of the gun? No. It’s the fault of the adults who put that little girl into that situation. Can you imagine how she’ll feel growing up after this? Think people THINK. A little common sense goes a long way.

The way I see it... Column

What not to do when designing a license plate While, to my knowledge, there is not currently a plan to update Saskatchewan’s license plates, it’s easy to assume it’s inevitable. The Saskatchewan Party government has always had a mantra of “telling the story of Saskatchewan,” and even if it did not, it has been in the middle of a comprehensive rebranding of the province. Since the province’s plates haven’t been changed in some time, one can imagine that there’s at least been thought to taking them in a new direction. It wouldn’t be the only province, as most recently Alberta has left Wild Rose Country – and a design that looked like it was made in the 1980s – and introduced a design that is, at best, a bit generic. It was selected via social media as the best of three somewhat boring designs, all of which failed at being a great plate design in my view. Using a photo of mountains as its central design element, it would work fine as a brochure for a mediocre resort hotel, but fails as a license plate. What is a great plate? It needs to be something that’s immediately recognizable, reads well at glance, and tells you a bit about the place it represents. The gold standard is the plate for the Northwest Territories, cut in the shape of a polar bear. It’s the winner because it can never be confused for any other place, plus it tells you something important about the terri-

Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger tories – namely, they are full of bears – in a fun way. If a cool shape is cheating, another great one is the state of Colorado. Like Alberta, it promotes the Rocky Mountains. Unlike Alberta, it does this with a more abstract representation – essentially, a squiggly line – that works on the road. It’s extremely simple, it reads nicely, and we learn that Colorado is proud of its mountains. Going by other North American plates, there are other mistakes to avoid. Including a website URL is always a bit cheesy, while the internet may be ubiquitous an actual URL gives you a whiff of being sold something, as though all of the drivers on the road are

unwitting agents for the local tourism industry. It’s also a good idea to go with as few colors as possible – three is the limit, any more and it gets busy. Wyoming is a good example of this rule – it actually would work well if it was just black on white, since the cowboy they use is a simple, direct image. Instead it has a skyline for a background, making it messy. Another example is Utah’s Arches plate, which showcases a really cool part of the state in a way that makes it difficult to read the number. Fine if you’re promoting tourism, bad if you’re trying to identify a fleeing criminal. Another trap to avoid is the one that Montana has fallen into, with a seemingly infinite number of variations. Some are really cool – the one with the outline of the state on a blue background in particular – but once you see the hundredth plate design you begin to wonder if Montana is afraid of commitment. But actually, the biggest lesson one can get from observing everyone else’s plates is that, at the end of the day, there is no need to change Saskatchewan’s design. It’s simple, it’s direct, it says something about the province – we like green and white. There’s nothing that needs changing. While it’s likely that there is some temptation to introduce something new, I’ll just stick with the plate I’ve always had.

Your letter of the Week

Cold water on old ideas Threat level –

To the Editor:

Thanks a lot, ALS Association. Because of you and your Ice Bucket Challenge, millions of organizations around the world are re-thinking their approach to fundraising. The tried and true methods – like appeal letters, gala events, and silent auctions – have lost their lustre in the face of your ridiculously simple, outrageously inexpensive, and wildly successful viral rampage. Your success makes these traditional approaches as outdated and quaint as a cup of instant coffee. Don’t get me wrong. I’m happy for your success. But in addition to generating mega-millions for your cause, those chunks of ice are creating quite a stir among the philanthropic world. As your revenues soar, we jealously watch from the sidelines and wonder: How can we duplicate your success? Prevailing wisdom is that your Ice Bucket Challenge represents a radical shift in the fundraising dynamic. You and all your drenched devotees have unleashed a new kind of philanthropic order. And commentators of every stripe are doing

their best to dissect it. But hold onto your ice cube trays. Is there really anything really new here? Sure, the Ice Bucket Challenge has generated a ton of money in a short time and engaged participation from school kids to CEOs. But is what underlies its success really new, or just a new take on an old idea? At its core the Ice Bucket Challenge is a pure form of peer-to-peer fundraising. Nothing new there. Countless organizations have used similar tactics. Think of the old jail-and-bail technique, where well-to-do community leaders would have to “fundraise” themselves out of jail by calling a host of friends. More recently, Movember has generated similar support by having guys raise money and awareness for prostate cancer by growing facial hair (and turning November into the ugliest month of the year). For decades, charity events have been championed by wellknown community leaders who tap their friends to buy tables, dress up, and come out in support. Peer-to-peer fundraising is nothing new, but what is new is who is being engaged. It’s no longer

the older folks with big wallets who are fundraising targets. Now, nearly anyone with a pulse is a potential donor. And the key to attracting them is easier – and seemingly different – than it used to be. Sure there are people who criticize the challenge for its perceived lack of substance or connection to the cause. But the numbers speak for themselves. And, based on my armchair analysis, here are the main points that make the Ice Bucket Challenge worth remembering: It’s quick and easy. There’s no big commitment required. Is it possible that the less you ask of participants, the more likely you are to engage more of them? It’s fun. Yes, it’s oddly enjoyable to watch someone get doused with ice water. And for those who want to up the ante, the challenge brings out the creative side of everyone from Patrick Stewart to Bill Gates. Anyone can do it. It’s open to almost all incomes, ages, and walks of life and no special skill or equipment is required. Plus, the campaign originated with average folks, not the Association. The

grassroots origin only adds to the appeal – and makes it devilishly hard to duplicate. As organizations seek to attract a new base of donors, they should remember these important lessons. Donors want to be engaged, but they don’t always want to do it in hotel banquet rooms eating chicken and bidding on spa packages. Just one more thing to keep in mind. The motivation behind the challenge was to help a person suffering from ALS. The person who got the ice bucket rolling wanted to do something creative to help bring attention to a relatively unknown cause. The good news is that it only takes one adventurous soul to come up with a new way to inspire and engage a whole continent. So thanks ALS for pouring cold water on some of our outdated fundraising methods. Thanks for inspiring us to consider something new, fun, easy, and inclusive. And thanks for reminding us that the best ideas might come from outside of our organizations. Thanks. A lot. Joni Avram, Troy Media Corp.

A citizen’s guide to participation

To the Editor:

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) published It’s Your CRTC! Your 5-minute Guide to Understanding and Participating in Our Activities to inform Canadians about how to participate in its activities and proceedings and why that’s important. This initiative is part of a number of steps the CRTC is taking to make it easier for Canadians to take part in its public proceedings. This includes better informing Canadians about what the CRTC does and reaching out to Canadians in diverse ways, whether by translating some documents in American Sign Language and Langue des

signes québecoise or through short videos posted on YouTube. These efforts are aimed at trying to connect with Canadians on issues that affect their daily lives. According to Statistics Canada, communication services represent the fifth largest family expense for Canadian households. The CRTC wants citizens to make informed choices and get the most out of their investment. In the past two years, the CRTC has successfully engaged Canadians in new and innovative ways to develop a code of conduct for wireless service providers and invited Canadians to submit comments regarding the future of Canadian television. When Canadians communicate with the CRTC, they help change, adapt or develop a policy and ensure

that the Commission makes decisions in the public interest. There are many opportunities for citizens to participate and provide input to the CRTC, whether online, via conventional means, such as mail or phone, or through social media. The CRTC regularly conducts public proceedings so that individuals can share their views in a variety of ways on important issues. The CRTC wants to put Canadians at the centre of their communication system. And that means making their voices heard and their opinions known. Jean-Pierre Blais, Chairman, Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission

Make back to school easier not harder

To the Editor:

Parents and teachers are covering off more and more in the classroom. The extra costs piling up on parents and teachers by this government have to stop. The start of the school year should be about excited kids getting new opportunities, but, increasingly, for parents and teachers

it’s about opening their wallets to pay extra time and time again, replacing things the government no longer helps with. The government should make affordability a priority. Instead, the government has made cuts in classrooms, underfunded schools and left families and teachers who are already paying much more for the basics every month

to fill the gaps. Teachers often spend literally hundreds of dollars to outfit their classrooms with educational supplies, while parents are pulling out their wallets again and again at back-to-school time. Parents have always paid for running shoes and new backpacks – but today, parents are shelling out for extra supplies for

classrooms that are bare, plus tutoring and extra help for their kids in classrooms that no longer have an educational assistant. In this economy, back to school should be a little easier for hard-working families, not harder. Trent Wotherspoon NDP deputy leader and critic for education

Allegations are based on a false premise To the Editor: In the August 21, 2014 edition of the News Review, I was disappointed to see a letter to the editor which was submitted by the Green Party with several allegations, all of which were untrue and based on a false premise. Sunrise Health Region is not centralizing pharmacy services. Sunrise Health Region is respon-

sible for the quality of health services and the safety of persons in our care. To that end, the health region has formal service contracts with vendors outlining expectations with regard to service provision and product quality. This includes contracts with vendors who supply prescription medications to residents in long-term care. The health region has service contracts with many different phar-

macies, in both larger and smaller communities throughout the health region. It is unfortunate that the Green Party chose not to contact the health region to verify the accuracy of their information. Roberta Wiwcharuk, Vice President of Integrated Health Services Sunrise Health Region.

pointless

To the Editor:

“Man the terror alert for London has just been upped I don’t wanna go out now, the text from my friend read. The recent news that Britain’s government has raised its terrorism alert level to “severe” unsurprisingly prompted a renewed climate of fear, reflected on social media and in major news outlets. Yet even if we grant a significantly increased risk of a terrorist attack, how can publicly raising a “threat level” do anything to lessen that possibility? My friend did not change his plans, of course. Few – if any – do. The only likely change in behaviour amongst the British public is a greater feeling of dread when they see someone who looks “a bit foreign.” This fearmongering serves the state’s agenda of control and power by applying the timeless formula of uniting the population against “the enemy within.” It fits seamlessly into the narrative of xenophobia peddled by successive governments, so successfully that around three quarters of people in Britain are now anti-immigration. In the absence of any sort of protective value, Theresa May’s much-publicized announcement can be viewed as a further attempt to galvanise support for the next election. This support is built on the practice of blaming anyone and everyone but politicians for the country’s economic and social difficulties. Those who chose not to take the raised alert level seriously displayed the typically British response of taking the piss, with numerous “#ThreatLevel” parodies doing the rounds on Twitter. When you’re nearly fourteen times more likely to die drowning in a bathtub than as the victim of a terrorist attack, such disregard for government threat levels is understandable. Terror attacks are horrific, and no reasonable person would say otherwise. But you (or indeed someone you know) being a victim of an attack is stupendously improbable. It’s true to say that a small number of Brits are fighting for ISIS in Iraq and Syria. It’s also true to say that making a huge song-and-dance about raising the terror threat level will do absolutely nothing to prevent them from staging a terrorist attack. Maybe if politicians replaced such needless posturing with an examination of the failures of interventionist foreign policy, they might make a real contribution to the safety of Brits. Until then, we are left with a grim irony; the British government’s “terror alerts” help nobody and – if taken at all seriously – only succeed in creating terror.

‘Find the Fallen’ celebrates the release of first album By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer A local band is gearing up to celebrate the release of its debut album. Yorkton-based Christian band Find the Fallen has just finished the recording of Shooting Stars and Satellites. Jon Tieszen, lead vocalist and songwriter for the group, describes the album as a mix between rock, pop and worship. Tieszen says that they focused on the songs that “mean something to people,” and that the diversity of the album was meant to reflect what the band is and the music they want to play. “It’s quite a mixture, that’s one thing that we really like about it. When you listen to it straight through, it’s definitely not boring, it keeps you moving on a journey.” The album took just

I’m just one of the many cats here at the SPCA, and all of us need to become part of a new home. To learn more come visit the SPCA or call 306-783-4080.

over a year to make, Tieszen says, with the album being completely self-produced by the band. While the band had some experience recording, it meant the band had to try things they had never done before, a challenge he says they were happy to face. “As we kept working, it really fell together and we were able to let out all of our creative juices.” The album is a homegrown product, Tieszen and his wife Crystal, who does vocals and keyboards, are from Yorkton, as is band member Troy Janzen. Lead guitarist Dustin Wilson and drummer Kyle Brewer are from Kamsack, and the album itself was recorded locally as well. Tieszen says that with five people it could be a challenge to get everyone to agree, but that the end result was stronger music.

“As we kept working, it really fell together and we were able to let out all of our creative juices.” – John Tieszen

The launch party will be a celebration, Tieszen says, with all three elements of their sound at the forefront, rock, pop and worship each getting play on stage. “That’s what people can expect, a good time with friends and with God.” The release party will also feature Grammynominated Christian rap artist Fresh IE, who is releasing his live DVD Red Letterz 13. The band performed together with Fresh IE, and one of the songs on the new album is a collaboration with him. Tieszen says that they began to know each other better as they per-

14091BS01

formed more together and eventually toured together. He says they were lucky that it was possible for Fresh IE to be at the event, because he is important to the band and has been a big part of the new album. The launch party is the culmination of the band’s hard work, but Tieszen says that it would never have happened without the support of the people around them, and he says that the release party is about celebrating with the people who made the album release possible. “It just feels really good. None of us have ever put out a fully pressed CD, and there’s definitely a sense of accomplishment there. But, we’ve definitely had help from fans and friends and family as

well. We’re humbled that way too, we can’t take all the credit that way.” The show will be on September 10 at 7 p.m. at the Prairie Harvest Christian Life Center.

Tickets are $10 at the door, and are also available in advance at PHCLC or The Golden Rule. There will also be a cash concession and merchandise table.

The Saskatchewan farmer is trained

Well, we have gotten a bit busier out here on our small farm, now with the birds to tend to. The turkey chicks have been separated from the broiler chicks, and my job when Marion is at work is to make sure that they have feed and water. OK then! The little broiler chicks have two plastic waterers, one where the water tray screws on to the water container and then it is turned upside down so the water will fill the channel around the rim. The other one is similar, but instead of the tray being screwed on, it has to be twisted on, so that the thingamajigs on the tray snap into the whatchamacallits on the water container. Sound simple, doesn’t it? In the morning I went out and got the two waterers. The waterer with the screw on tray is easy, just bring it to the outside water tap on the house, screw off the tray and fill the container with water, screw the tray back on and carry it upside down to the chicken coop, and turn it right side up while placing it by the feeders. Now the other one is a different story. I snapped off the tray, filled the container with water, set the container on an even surface at the edge of the deck, and twisted the tray back in place; at least I thought I did. Then I carried it to the chicken coop upside down, and just as I was turning it right side up, the water container fell off the tray splashing water all over me and some of the chickens! What a mess! Back to the outside tap on the house, refill the container, twist on the tray and make sure it is on right by tapping it with a hammer, then back to the chicken coop, and

all was well. Then repeat procedure in the afternoon. Only the water tray would not snap off! I guess when I tapped the tray with the hammer in the morning; it must have somehow “fused” itself to the water container. Using a flat head screw driver I was able to pry the tray off, filled the container with water, twisted the tray back on but didn’t use a hammer this time, carried it back to the chicken coop, and splosh – there went the water all over again! Back to the tap, fill with water, twist on the tray, and then get the item that is most important on a farm, the roll of duct tape! I duct taped the tray to the container, leaving just enough room for a couple of chicks to dip their beaks! Marion went out after supper to do the evening chores, and she was wondering why the one waterer had all this duct tape on it, that took her a long time to get off. I explained to her what had happened twice to me that day, and she just smiled and suggested that I pay attention while she was showing me how easy it was to secure that tray! Well! I said, you do it your way and I’ll do it my way! A city slicker got bogged down on a muddy rural road and paid Ole, the farmer next to

the road, fifty dollars to pull him out with his tractor. After he was back on dry ground the city slicker said to Ole, “I guess being so close, I should think you would be pulling people out of that mud hole night and day.” “Can’t,” replied Ole, “at night I haul water for the hole.” Lena came running into the house and said to Ole: “there’s trouble with the car. It has water in the carburetor.” Ole looks at her with a frown and said: “Water in the carburetor? That’s ridiculous!” Lena insisted: “the car has water in the carburetor!” Ole became a little bit puzzled and said: “You don’t even know what a carburetor is! Where’s the car?” Lena looked Ole straight in the eyes and said: “in Lady Lake!” A while ago a new supermarket opened in a large city that shall remain nameless. It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain. When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and there is the scent of freshly mowed hay. In the meat department there is the aroma of charcoal grilled steaks with onions. When you approach the egg case, you hear hens clucking and cackling, and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of

14091JJ00

bacon and eggs frying. The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh baked bread and cookies. But I wouldn’t buy toilet paper there! The teacher asked Sven: “Sven, what is the chemical formula for water?” Sven thought for a moment, and then he replied: “H I J K L M N O!” “What are you talking about Sven?” asked the teacher. Sven looking a bit confused said: “yesterday you said it was H to O!” “Why does the capital letter T look like a palm tree on a small island Ole?” asked the teacher. “Because it’s in the middle of water?” mused Ole. Lars asked his son: “How are your grades Ole?” “Under water dad!” replied Ole. “Under water? What does that mean?” asked Lars. “Well,” replied Ole, “they’re below C level!”

A tribute to Patsy Cline actor Devra Straker on her portrayal of Patsy Cline: “Straker proved she was up to the task of portraying the country music superstar. The role is difficult – it’s not just enough for the actor to be able to carry a tune with a pleasant voice. To bring credibility to the role, the voice has to be similar to Patsy’s – it has to be husky, robust and powerful – and Straker’s voice filled the bill quite admirably.” Straker will perform in Yorkton at the Anne Portnuff Theatre September 7 starting at 7:30 p.m. For tickets or further details call the Yorkton Arts Council at 306

Mandeep Singh, pictured above putting willow to leather, took over as Yorkers team captain after Faisal Anwar announced he is leaving Yorkton for a new job in Manitoba. – Story and photo submitted by Thom Barker.

Local cricket season wraps up The Yorkton Yorkers wrapped up their sophomore season in the Saskatchewan Cricket League last week with an unenviable record, but optimistic for the future. Because of restructuring of the league to accommodate a record 23 teams – up from 16 last year – the Yorkers played a reduced schedule of 16 games, nine in the One Day Provincial (ODP) format (40 overs) and seven in the T20 format (20 overs). In T20 play the Yorkers finished with a 2-4-1 record, good enough for sixth place in the eight-team ReginaYorkton-Estevan division and one win better than the team’s inaugural season in 2013. The highlight of the season was a July 20 thrashing of the Queen City Cricket Club. The Yorkers batted first putting up a good total of 164 runs for six wickets. All-rounder Tinku Sharma led the Yorkton batters with 67 runs in the outing. In the second innings, Yorkton bowlers dominated the Queen City batsmen taking all 10 of the Regina squad’s wickets in just 13.4 overs.

In the ODP competition, the Yorkers finished last out of the 12 teams with a record of 0-7-2. While the record was disappointing, individual highlights included a century by team captain Mandeep Singh and half-century by Sharma in an August

league stepped down as team captain in July and relinquished presidency of the association at the end of August. Incoming YCA president Thom Barker said Anwar will be missed, but there are positives to be taken from the season.

“Mandeep is doing a wonderful job with the guys and showing great leadership on and off the pitch. It bodes well for cricket in Yorkton that we will be able to carry on despite losing our guiding force in Faisal.” – Thom Barker 9 match versus Midway Cricket Club. The biggest disappointment of the season happened off the field when Yorkton Cricket Association (YCA) founder Faisal Anwar announced he had taken a new position in Manitoba and would be leaving Yorkton. Anwar, who led the Yorkers last season and was the province’s top bowler of 2013 in the T20

“We lost some prominent players from last season, but were still able to field a team with new players and even managed to win a couple of matches,” he says. “Mandeep is doing a wonderful job with the guys and showing great leadership on and off the pitch. It bodes well for cricket in Yorkton that we will be able to carry on despite losing our guiding force in Faisal.”

Barker was also grateful for the community support the Yorkers have garnered. “Three new sponsors, Crystal Clear Imprints, Dominoes Pizza and Royal Ford came forward and provided us with new jerseys,” he said. “It is wonderful that community is embracing this new addition to Yorkton’s sports scene. Yorkton cricket also evolved this year as the association and the Yorkers became two separate entities. The YCA will act as an umbrella organization for the Yorkers and any future area teams, liaise with the Saskatchewan Cricket Association (SCA), develop the sport in the Parkland, oversee junior cricket and winter cricket and manage shared resources such as a cricket ground, which Barker said he hopes the organization will be able to negotiate with the City for next season. The last two years, the Yorkers have had to play their home games in Regina. The Yorkers Cricket Club will concentrate on building a winning cricket team under the tutelage of Singh.

Hometown hero looks forward to final season By Chase Ruttig

Yorkton Terriers forward Dylan Johnson has had as good of a start to his Junior A hockey career as you can have in two seasons with his hometown Yorkton Terriers. The Yorkton product joined up as a rookie with his older brother Jeremy in the 2012/13 season, scoring two big goals to eliminate the Melville Millionaires in the Sherwood Conference Final to help the team win the SJHL title as a very useful power forward on the wing during his first season with the team. That led to last season where Johnson move out his older brother’s shadow to become a fixture amongst the Terriers top forward lines, eventually scoring the game tying goal at the Royal Bank Cup to help force overtime and the first Junior A National Championship for his hometown. With those big moments already on his list of accomplishments since joining the team he watched growing up in the city, Johnson

is looking forward to another challenge in 2014/15 as the Yorkton Terriers look to defend their National Championship with what will be a new look roster with new leaders. Something that will mean that the 20 year old Johnson will be seeing an increased leadership role, something that he is looking forward to as the team starts to begin their preseason preparations this month. “We have had great leaders in my two seasons here with guys like Devon McMullen and the Norrish twins along with all of the 20 year olds so to have the chance to step up and try to fill their leadership roles on the team is a big honour to have that expectation to help lead a team that just won a National Championship with some great leaders.” Getting experience over the past two seasons in high pressure situations and stepping up to those moments with big goals in the playoffs, Johnson mentions that his first campaigns with the Ter-

“Obviously winning two straight league titles with a great group of teammates has helped all of the returning players out in terms of experience and learning what it takes to win not only once but also to defend a championship along with pushing yourselves as a team to go one step further.” – Dylan Johnson

riers should hopefully help in adjusting to going from being a younger role player to one of the most experienced players on the roster. “Obviously winning two straight league titles with a great group

of teammates has helped all of the returning players out in terms of experience and learning what it takes to win not only once but also to defend a championship along with pushing yourselves as a team to go one step further,” mentioned Johnson. “Hopefully as a group this season we can continue to have that type of work ethic and it is going to come from trying to do what has led to success in the past.” Johnson also feels that after stepping up in big moments he has the experience needed for a 20 year old season when he is expected to see an increased role. “The past two seasons were about being able to contribute whenever I was on the ice behind the leaders of the team and I think I did that

pretty well, scoring big goals in my rookie season before helping out to win the RBC Cup last spring,” said Johnson who mentions that he will be hoping to add consistent production to his clutch play. “I am planning on adding more consistent production this season with an increased role to help lead as a 20 year old now and hope that those experiences I got playing alongside great teammates who did a lot in the SJHL will make me able to add that extra production.” Johnson’s production has been that of a role player for his career, never topping 10 goals in a season despite his flair for scoring in the clutch come spring. Johnson wants to up that production, but says that his game of being a power forward who uses his body won’t change while in the search of hopefully adding more goals in his final Junior season. “My role is to be a power forward and that is what the coaches have expected of me so I am still going to wear

down the opposing team by finishing checks and doing all of the things a power forward does, said Johnson who added that hopefully by doing the things he always does at a higher level points will come naturally. “If filling my role and helping the team keep winning comes with more points that is something that I will look forward to when it comes because I feel like I can contribute a lot this season as a veteran.” Coming off of two league championships at the RBC Cup last year, Johnson also has his sights on finishing his Junior career with more success with his hometown Terriers. “The goal of every Junior player and every Junior team is to go and win the league along with the National Championship, Johnson mentioned. “We as a group have the goal of staying hungry and fighting for another run as far as we can go and the goal will be the same in trying to get better every day on the road to hopefully winning a championship.”

DYLAN JOHSON was on the team that took home the RBC Cup.

Ready, set – get hunting!

Metro – Hunting is a popular hobby and sport enjoyed by millions of people across North America. Hunting seasons vary depending on where you live. Regulations designed by local conservation, game, fish, and wildlife departments often dictate the start and end of hunting season. Although the licensing, seasons, limits, and fees for hunting may differ geographically, the preparation that goes into getting ready for hunting season is similar regardless of geography. Many seasoned hunters realize hunting season does not begin on “opening day.” Rather, it can take weeks or months to get ready for a successful season. Considering hunting seasons can be brief, preparation helps hunters make the most of their time spent in the field. • Purchase your license, tag or stamp. Many wildlife departments require hunters register in advance of the season, and this registration includes securing a hunting license. Because there is a limit to how many animals each hunter can hunt, tags for the animals they’re hunting also will be issued. Hunters planning on going out for the season should stay apprised of when licensing and registration begins and ends so they can hunt legally. • Scout areas. The landscape can change from year to year depending on a host of factors, including construction, commercialization and

weather. Areas once open to hunting may now be restricted lands. Map out your potential hunting location and be aware of any new landmarks or changes. • Check and replenish gear. Inspect weaponry, field-dressing supplies, clothing, and other supplies for wear and tear. Address any issues that need to be fixed, or replace items as necessary. If a rifle, bow or shotgun hasn’t been fired in a while, take it to a range to verify accuracy and sighting. If you hunt out of a tree stand or blind, make sure it is sturdy and in good condition prior to use. • Get in shape. Hunting often requires hiking in and out of the great outdoors in various terrain. It’s helpful to increase physical activity leading up to the hunt to prepare your body for the physical demands of hunting. • Organize and pack gear. Ensure your equipment is clean, in working order and packed away in your travel bags. Establish a system of organization and a checklist so you’re certain you will have what you need. Don’t forget to bring along your hunting license and animal tags; otherwise, you may be levied with costly fines. • Always hunt safely. It is quite easy to get swept up in the moment when tracking game. Don’t let overzealousness cloud rational judgement and safety precautions. Otherwise an injury or even death can occur.

McCallum looks forward to CIS soccer ranks

Adding to the list of former players of the Yorkton United Football Club to join the CIS University Soccer ranks, Brandon McCallum’s 2014 season will be one of new challenges for himself and the UBCO Heat as the Kelowna based school are set to enter the CIS for their inaugural first division season this month. That new challenge also led to McCallum staying in Kelowna for the summer for the first time in his career with the Heat, opting to remain on the West Coast to play his club footy in the summer with Kelowna United to prepare for the upcoming campaign. Now a veteran on the Heat following two seasons on the roster after a redshirt freshman year, McCallum mentioned that staying in Kelowna for a summer to prepare for the CIS season gave him valuable match experience he unfortunately could not receive playing in his home province. The BC second division providing more matches and structure than the current model in Saskatchewan. “It was definitely a benefit to stay in Kelowna from a variety of perspectives when it came to being acclimatized to the Okanagan weather to getting more matches and playing a similar style of play all summer,” mentions McCallum of his decision to locate himself in Kelowna year round for 2014. “Playing in the BC second division gave me far more time on the pitch playing in games and even if the level of play was below what we see at the university level it was a really positive experience to have that structure of a club playing a full schedule this summer.” McCallum adds that while in Yorkton he did the same amount of training, the lack of matches in Saskatchewan was a factor in his decision. “I would do the same amount of training in Yorkton individually, but with the lack of league play in Saskatchewan at the men’s level it was definitely nice to get to play all summer where back in Saskatchewan there may not have been as many opportunity for matches and team training.” Following a full summer with the Kelowna United, August for McCallum has been spent with the Heat as the university club has been on their preseason tour and preseason training portion of their schedule leading up to their season opener in Prince George on the weekend. Playing some CIS clubs

in addition to a trip out to Seattle to play NCAA D-II and D-III schools in the Pacific Northwest, McCallum felt that the game experience was helpful to show the work that will need to be done this season. “Our manager scheduled a lot of friendlies this August in addition to two a day training sessions which I felt was the best way to get into things with tons of training and game experience,” says McCallum who added that the teams the Heat played gave them valuable time on the pitch in addition to motivation for the season that lies ahead. “The NCAA schools we played during our trip to the States showed us the work we have to do to get to the level we want to be at this season and gave us good matches so it was a good experience to spend our preseason playing a lot of friendlies against quality opposition.” McCallum also spent time switching between positions, playing some time at fullback after moving to centreback in the past few seasons for the Heat. Playing on the flank for the Kelowna United in the club season, the Yorkton product mentions that his manager has been interested in trying him out at both positions for potential use in a versatile role switching between fullback and centreback this season. “My manager mentioned that he wants to see how versatile I can be and if I can handle playing both positions after playing fullback with the club team this summer,” explains McCallum who adds that switching roles always means getting used to the differences in positioning. “I have played both positions a lot over the past few years, but there are some differences between playing on the outside and inside of the backline that you have to be aware of and I think I have been handling that well in the preseason.” Helping McCallum’s cause has been plenty of playing time, now a veteran on the team after spending the first few seasons learning the ropes, McCallum started in the majority of the friendlies this August and played in nearly every match. Something that should surely help him get comfortable at playing either fullback or centreback one the season begins. Making an away trip to Prince George for their first CIS match, McCallum said that training has been filled with excitement and intensity

over the past couple of weeks as the Heat are very much looking forward to their chance to make a statement in their first division debuts. “Training has been intense over the past few days as we are practicing everyday until we make the plane trip to Prince George.” “Everyone is ex-

if it will be their first year in the top flight of Canadian University soccer. “It is hard to make a prediction or expect where we are going to finish at the start of the year but as always we plan on working hard and trying to finish as high up the table as we can,” says McCallum of the Heat’s 2014 chances.

“There are a lot of new schools in the CIS and in our division that we will get to play as well as the already established programs so if we can make the most of our opportunities and play to the best quality when we are on the pitch there is a chance that we can make some noise in our first season.”

cited and working hard, looking at the prize that is in front of us and ready to go out to prove we are ready for a season in the CIS.” As for expectations, McCallum feels that with an influx of new schools in the CIS in addition to UBCO that there is a chance for the Heat to make a run in 2014 even

THE NEWS REVIEW - Thursday, September 4, 2014 - Page 19A

Things to consider before downsizing your home Once their kids have left the nest, many men and women over 50 begin to consider downsizing their homes. Downsizing to a smaller home can be beneficial for a variety of reasons, including less home to clean and maintain, more affordable utility bills and lower property taxes. But the decision to downsize is rarely black and white, and men and women often struggle with that decision. Perhaps the most difficult part of the decision of whether or not to downsize to a smaller home concerns the sentimental attachment many homeowners, especially those with children, have to their homes. The home might be too big for your current needs, but it also was the same place where your son took his first steps and where your daughter lost her first tooth. Saying goodbye to a place that was home to so many memories isn’t easy. But there’s more than just sentimental value to consider when deciding whether or not to downsize your home after the kids have grown up and moved out.

care of in your current home. For example, your current home may be fully furnished, while a new, smaller home may require you to buy all new furniture because your existing items simply won’t fit. The cost of such furnishings can be considerable. If you plan to move into a condominium, you can expect to pay monthly homeowners association fees, and such fees are often substantial. So while the condo itself might be smaller, the additional expenses associated with the property may end up making the smaller home more expensive and prevent you from saving more money for retirement. Real estate market There are seller’s markets and there are buyer’s markets, and ideally you would like to sell your home in a seller’s market. But keep in mind that this might be the same market in which you hope to buy a new home. The nature of the real estate market depends on a host of factors, including geography. If the city or town where you currently live is in the midst of a seller’s market and you are planning on moving to a location where buyers have the upper hand, then now might be a great time to move. But if you currently live in a buyer’s market and hope to move to a seller’s market, then you may end up paying a steep price, even when downsizing to a smaller home. Things may even themselves out if you want to downsize to a smaller home within your current community, but do your homework nonetheless, researching the time of year when you’re

Personal finances Your financial situation merits significant consideration when deciding if the time is right to downsize your home. If your retirement nest egg is not as substantial as you would like it to be, then it would seem as though downsizing to a smaller, more affordable home is a great opportunity for you to start catching up on your retirement savings. But that’s only true if your new home won’t incur any additional expenses that are already taken

most likely to get the most for your home and find the best deal on your next place. The advantage men and women considering downsizing have is that they are rarely in a rush to move out of their current home and into their next one. This gives them ample time to make the real estate market work for them. Space How much space do you really need? Once the kids have moved out, couples may feel like all of that extra space is going to waste. But that can be a kneejerk reaction, and upon a more thorough examination of the space and your needs you may just find that you can put all of that extra square footage to good use after all. If you have always wanted your own art studio, then now might be the perfect time to make that a reality. Always wanted a room devoted to home theater? Get to work on converting your basement from an all-purpose game room to your own private movie theater. If, after considering the space in your home, you find that the extra square footage really is just upkeep you aren’t especially interested in doing, then you would no doubt like a cozier home that’s less of a responsibility to maintain.
