Shellbrook Chronicle The voice of the Parkland for over 100 years Shellbrook, Saskatchewan Friday, October 10, 2014 VOL. 102 NO. 41 PMR #40007604 www.shellbrookchronicle.com Friday Night Lights shine bright on Aardvarks The Aardvarks’ offence prepares for its next play during its ﬁrst-ever Friday Night Lights football game. All eyes were fixed firmly on the Shellbrook Aardvarks football team as they took to the field under the Friday night lights in a fast-paced showdown against the Big River Highway 55’s. The evening game, which was played under portable lights, was a first for a team that was revived only a short while ago. “We started the team about five or six years ago when I first moved here,” said Devon Thorpe, coach of the team. “We raised money and there were quite a few businesses in town that gave us money to start the team back up.” Since then, he added, the team has seen an increasing number of players try out every year, and so the idea for ‘Friday Night Lights’ was born. “I’m originally from the Porcupine Plain area, and they’ve been doing it for the last couple years so we thought it was time to bring it to Shellbrook,” he said. “It’s good for the community and the school because most people don’t get to see the games because they work until five.” The idea seems to have been a motivator for the Aardvarks, who set the pace for the game immediately with a touchdown on their first possession. From there, the team kept its foot on the gas pedal, and headed into the half with a 38-6 lead. Special teams set the tone for an even more dramatic second half, which saw both the Aardvarks and the Highway 55’s trade kick-off return touchdowns before the Aardvarks gave up 24 unanswered points. Despite this, the team held on to win with a final score of 62-30. Friday Night Lights also seems to have inspired Shellbrook, as the community filled the bleachers and parked their vehicles around the field, sounding off in a raucous choir of cheers, car horns and ambulance sirens each time the Aard- vark’s scored. While the school raised some of its own funds for the lights, the game was sponsored by Shellbrook Co-op and Shellbrook Kinsmen. Affinity Credit Union, meanwhile, sponsored a pregame BBQ. All in all, Thorpe said this won’t be the last time the lights shine over the football field at W.P. Sandin School. “We hope to do it again next year. We’re going to try to expand it and see how it goes,” he said. The Aardvarks’ next home game is Oct. 23 against Birch Hills.

The Shellbrook Seniors’ Association capped off Seniors’ Week last Friday with its annual tea and bake sale, which invited seniors and people of all ages to come together and enjoy hot beverages and a variety of delectable desserts. Adeline Fossey, president of the Shellbrook Seniors’ Association said the tea and bake sale has been a ﬁxture for the association for decades, and that events like it help seniors feel a sense of belonging in the community. “I came to Shellbrook eight years ago and I didn’t know anyone,” she explained. “Events like these give seniors something to look forward to and work towards. And when you work together, you get to know each other. That way, anyone new coming into town gets to feel like part of the group.” Aside from providing seniors with somewhere to get together, events 14102MA00 like these are important fundraisers for the association and the seniors’ hall. The bake sale, Fossey said, was one of the association’s most successful to date, raising $812. “We’re always trying to improve the hall. Recently we put in an island, and we did soundprooﬁng and put in a new sound system. We now plan to update the outside and put in a canopy.” The money raised also helps fund tours, like an Our Club was able to purchase equipment such as cross-country vests, jump blocks and dressage letters through a generous Membership Assistance Program grant from the Sask.

Marking this year’s theme, “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives. Test Yours Every Month!”, Jurgens, along with the provincial Emergency Management and Fire Safety branch, the Prince Albert Fire Department, school ofﬁcials and students enrolled in the High School Emergency Services Training Program visited Riverside Community School and St. Francis elementary schools to discuss ﬁre safety. Seven hundred kindergarten to Grade 8 students were each provided with a smoke alarm to take home for their parents or caregivers to install. “Smoke alarms are one of the most important safety devices you can have in your home,” Jurgens said. “Many investigations into ﬁres, especially those involving fatalities, ﬁnd that there were not smoke alarms or, if there were smoke alarms, they were not working or had been disabled. Smoke alarms can be a life-saving difference in the event of a ﬁre.” It is recommended that there be a working smoke detector in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home including the basement. Replace smoke alarms that are 10 years old or if testing shows they aren’t responding properly. Park Valley Pony Club member Jaclyn Aarrestad, on the x-country course, riding Cass.

The province now provides coverage for annual eye examinations for diabetic patients, effective October 1, 2014. “Maintaining good eye health is an important aspect of diabetes management,” Health Minister Dustin Duncan said. “This new service will remove ﬁnancial barriers and ensure timely access to vision care for people living with diabe- tes in our province.” Clinical practice guidelines for the management of residents with diabetes recommend annual eye exams to ensure optimal monitoring and care. The newly introduced coverage will reduce out-of-pocket costs, improve access to an eye examination, and facilitate early treatment of eye issues related to diabetes.

The Common Sense Firearms Licencing Act will be tabled this fall by our Conservative Government’s Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, the Honourable Steven Blaney, who stated, “These measures would streamline licensing and eliminate needless red tape for law-abiding gun owners. It would also take steps to ensure that those convicted of domestic violence offences can be banned from owning ﬁrearms.

Regional Director for Saskatchewan Warren Wagner said. “Receiving comprehensive annual eye examinations is essential to catch retinal changes as early as possible and ultimately help preserve vision for the more than 90,000 people living with diabetes in the province.” Annual eye examinations are currently covered by the province for all children under the age of 18. “Expanding the coverage to include adults with 3 diabetes is part of our commitment to provide better access to primary health services and patient-centred health care for our residents,” Duncan said. Saskatchewan has also proclaimed October as Children’s Vision Month. Children’s Vision Month is marked across Canada, and is dedicated to raising awareness of the impact undiagnosed vision problems can have on children’s learning and development.

It should be. Rather, it simply seemed like one of those “well, duh!” moments one has when confronted by something so glaringly obvious. According to the report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Saskatchewan’s prison system is one of the most strained in Canada - a hard truth that has forced prison staff to convert classrooms, visiting rooms and other prison facilities into additional dormitories for inmates. Moreover, the report, titled Warehousing Prisoners in JORDAN Saskatchewan, states that the TWISS province’s four provincial prisons are now housing almost double ~ the number of inmates they were Reporter intended for. Given that inmates are being crammed into prisons at a capacity that would make a sardine can feel roomy, it comes as no surprise that the report posits that Saskatchewan prisons are rapidly transforming into “inmate warehouses” - facilities designed only for the storage of prisoners, not for their rehabilitation. Indeed, the report says this transformation of prisons has resulted in reductions to program availability, food, and even visitations. “It was really hard to get into any program in Regina,” said a former inmate who was quoted in the report. “They seemed to want to let you get through three quarters [of your sentence]. But by then you’re eligible to put things in to leave. What they would do is they would say, ‘Well you haven’t done any programs so you can’t leave.’ They have a violence prevention program. I delayed my parole decision just so I could take this program.” But stories like these shouldn’t be surprising either. For if the federal Conservative government has been consistent about one thing since taking power, it’s been that it will stand as the last bastion against the rampant tide of crime that is “rising” all across Canada - even if crime is and has been declining, both in volume and severity, for the past ten years. As if to prove that they are, in fact, allergic to statistics, the conservative government all too eagerly passed its Safe Streets Act in 2012, which introduced new mandatory minimum sentences for some offences and increased existing minimum penalties in other areas. All this despite the plethora of studies dating back decades that suggest that longer prison sentences aren’t effective deterrents against reoffending. To make matters worse, the feds also seem deathly allergic to programs that rehabilitate prisoners and prepare them to return to their communities - as evidenced by their recent decision to defund Circles of Support and Accountability, a group aimed at helping high-risk sex offenders re-integrate into communities and stay clean, to the tune of $1.5 million. Without supports and accountability in place, it’s likely that many of these offenders will slip through the cracks and reoffend. Indeed, it’s as if the conservatives have Amy Winehouse’s classic tune ‘Rehab’ stuck on repeat, and are all too happy to sing “No, no, no” when it comes to rehabilitating inmates, choosing instead to follow the failed model of the prison industrial complex that has been so eagerly adopted by our neighbours to the south. By this time, it should come as no surprise that this model is failing our communities and our inmates here as well.

VIEWPOINT October 10, 2014 www.shellbrookchronicle.com Shellbrook Chronicle A new city hospital while rural hospitals decline Perhaps the ﬁrst place new rural and remote health minister Greg Ottenbreit should examine is the hospital in his own home town of Yorkton. At least a couple dozen elective surgeries in this critical rural health centre were cancelled late last month because of a bug problem. “At the last minute they cancelled the surgery stating that there were insects and little ﬂies in the operating room,” Jason Butler told CBC News. “It didn’t leave a good feeling with me and in fact I’m requesting to go to Regina now for surgery.” A Sunrise Health Region spokesman conﬁrmed the problem as cracks in the caulking of a window, allowing tiny insects to crawl in for tiny pests to get in. Some may see this as a minor hiccup in rural health care delivery - one that is easily rectiﬁed. Unless you are someone like Butler who booked a month off work in anticipation of his surgery, you might see a problem like this as hardly worth mentioning. But it does seem rather indicative of the health delivery problem in aging rural facilities - a problem that may be compounded in the coming years as the government’s health priorities head off in other directions. It is here where OtMURRAY tenbreit, health minister Dustin Duncan MANDRYK and all members of ~ the largely rural Saskatchewan Party government caucus may need to take a serious look at their priorities. In no small irony, the very day that surgeries in Yorkton were being postponed because of the rundown nature of the facility, Premier Brad Wall and Duncan were turning over the shovel for the new children’s hospital in Saskatoon that is being built right beside the Royal University Hospital. Admittedly, criticizing the children’s hospital isn’t a popular thing - especially in either the cities or in Sask. Party ranks where there has been massive fund-raising and a massive buy-in that this is something the province desperately needs. The thing is, though, it’s questionable whether another children’s hospital is needed in Western Canada and even more debatable as to whether this should be the priority for scarce health dollars. While Wall and the Sask. Party have been selling the notion since opposition days that we are one of the few provinces in the country without our very own children’s hospital, lost in the conversation has been whether that has meant our children our underserved. There is no question that there needs to be upgrades in both the maternity and pediatrics facilities at RUH, but did we ever need a separate, special facility of our own? Besides the serious question of whether we have the volume of severely sick kids requiring such specialized attention, there is the very legitimate problem of simply attracting qualiﬁed pediatric specialists to staff it. In doing so, we will have to com- YOUR TWO C ENTS ~ Stephen Harper’s refusal to attend global climate summit unacceptable Dear Editor, As world leaders gathered at the recent United Nations Climate Summit, one absence was especially galling: that of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Despite being in New York when the summit was held, Stephen Harper was one the very few world leaders invited who refused to attend. It underscored how little environmental stewardship factors into his government’s agenda. His Conservative government has failed to advance strong environmental policy — including transparent oversight, tougher penalties and a price on carbon pollution — and this inaction has had serious consequences for our environment, our international reputation and our economy. Our greenhouse gas emissions are growing, not slowing. Canada will miss its agreed-to 2020 emission reduction targets. Canada has earned an unfortunate international reputation for inaction and obstruction on climate change. It’s all par for the course under Mr. Harper, who manages to go to the Arctic every summer without ever uttering the phrase “climate change” — despite that being where its effects are most abundantly clear. Since 2008, his government has been promising reg- ulations for industrial emissions — and we’re still waiting. Even American President Barrack Obama has said that Canada could be doing more, and that his concern impacts the decision on the Keystone XL pipeline. Climate change is a global problem that requires a global solution. We need determined leadership to make progress, but that can’t happen if our prime minister can’t even be bothered to show up. As well, if Canada does not demonstrate to the world that we as a country are serious about greenhouse gas emissions, we will ﬁnd it harder and harder to export our resources to global markets. That is why Liberals are committed to responsible resource development, while promoting clean energy and reducing carbon emissions. As prime minister, Mr. Harper continues to get the big things wrong. After nearly a decade in power he has failed to take any meaningful action on Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions. His legacy will leave our children with an environment that is ever more threatened. Yours sincerely, John McKay, MP Liberal Party of Canada Environment Critic Shellbrook Chronicle C. J.

And without the best specialists, parents will still make the difﬁcult decision of going out of province to where the best doctors are. For some of the very specialized work, they will have no choice because the kind of talent we are talking about may very well be limited to but a few doctors in the entire country. Then there is the question of how much we will have to pay for this talent and a fourth hospital in Saskatoon that already sees its newest City Hospital highly underutilized. Meanwhile, smaller rural Saskatchewan cities like Yorkton and every other town in the province will have to ﬁght that much harder for their share of the scarce health dollars. It’s something that Ottenbreit and the entire Sask. Party government need to seriously think about. The Classiﬁeds Have Everything You Are Looking For!

The conference, which will bring more than 600 students to the town from Sept. 16 to 18, will be the first to be hosted by the school division in the last 20 years, and is slated to feature keynote speeches from former NHLer and Saskatchewan native, Theo Fleury and Ishmael Beah, author of A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier, as well as a performance by Kelsey Fitch and Kerri English. There will also be a Hunger Games-inspired event on the closing day of the conference. “I feel limited that we can only take about 3 or 4 students to each conference,” said Philp of the decision to submit a bid to host the conference. “It’s something our whole student body could benefit from. So rather than try to take 200 kids, which would never happen, we’re bringing the conference to the kids. That way the entire town and student body can experience this event.” The Saskatchewan Student Leadership Conference has run annually since kicking off in Yorkton, Sask. in 1980. The three-day event brings together students and teachers from all schools across the province and is aimed at instilling them with values of leadership and volunteerism. “You come back with a positive outlook and wonder what you can do to improve your school and community,” said Evan Beaulieu, Grade 12 presi- dent. Beaulieu has already attended four Student Leadership Conferences. Philp echoed Beaulieu’s sentiments about the conference’s potential benefits to the community. “I think it’ll be a really positive thing for our school and community to work together and manage something of this magnitude,” she said. “It’s not very often that a town hosts an event like this, so we’re excited to work so closely with the community and strengthen our ties.” In the spirit of community, Philp said she is looking for as many people as possible to help organize and support the event, whether it be by volunteering or offering up their homes to billet incoming students from other schools. She added that next week the school will begin to seek sponsors more actively to help pay for the expenses of hosting the conference. Shellbrook Curling Registration Night Friday, Oct. 24 7:30 p.m. Curling Rink Lounge October 10, 2014 AGRICULTURE www.shellbrookchronicle.com Biodiesel back in the news It is sometimes interesting how something pops up one day, quite by happenstance and the next thing you know you see it popping up in other places. An example happened to me recently. I was attending an event marking the local Louis Dreyfus Commodities canola plant at Yorkton shipping its 100th100-car train of On Agriculture canola meal. When the plant was initially proposed, and being built, there had been talk of one day a biodiesel facility springing up next door, the process being a natural in terms of utilizing the canola oil. That idea seems at best on the very backburner, if not simply dumped to ﬁle 13 for shredding. Biodiesel production has always relied on subsidies to be viable, and in Canada there are simply no long term programs to make a company assume the risk on a large scale. That said, the idea of biodiesel did seem to tie edible oils such as canola to the crude oil price, and that has dragged canola prices higher in terms of a low price. There is a threshold now where such oils could divert to biodiesel if the food market was to soften too much over too long a period. Calvin Daniels So what of the ideal of biodiesel, and its cousin ethanol for fuel from cereal grains? The question came up in a general ofﬁce discussion following the LDC event – which was the second random occurrence of the topic. The need for alternate fuels remains real, but it is doubtful biodiesel and ethanol from edible crops is the best place to be inCALVIN vesting research or large-scale develDANIELS opment dollars. The continued use of something ~ which will long term be needed to feed a growing population would seem to be ill-advised. I would not want to suggest a long term, viable alternative to fossil fuels, but I cannot think biodiesel from edible oils is more than a stop-gap answer, and even it costs the taxpayers to be ﬁnancially sound at the current cost of crude oil. So then I pop by the Western Producer website and ﬁnd Changes in the grain per cent year-over-year), above the W.A.S.D.E. estimate of 1.181 billion and the trade’s expectations of 1.191 billion. With American corn output this year set to be a record 14.4 billion bushel crop, Goldman Sachs was one of many ﬁrms revising its price estimates lower on this new data to $3 per bushel. Should that materialize, it’d be the ﬁrst time since October 2006 that those levels have been used. Conversely, U.S. soybean stocks as of Sept. 1 were just 92 million bushels, down 35 per cent from the same time a year ago, the lowest in 41 years, and well below the pre-report estimate of 128M bushels. As for wheat, total U.S. inventories were seen at 1.914 billion bushels (+2.4 per cent year-over-year) but of note is the increasing onfarm wheat stocks in the northern U.S. states with producers holding 71 per cent more wheat in North Dakota (270 million bushels on hand), 64 per cent more in South Dakota (55 million bushels), and 7.6 per cent more in Montana (155 million bushels). Finally, StatsCan came out with its production forecast for this year’s crop on Oct. 3, estimating a 27.5 million-tonne wheat output and 14.1 million tonnes of canola, 500,000 tonnes below pre-report estimate for both crops. As for other major crops, soybean production looks to set its sixth consecutive high at 5.96 million tonnes and barley production is seen dropping signiﬁcantly to 7.12 million tonnes. As for relative production growth, mustard production is quite high at 178,700 tonnes while ﬂax production is seen at 921,600 tonnes, skyrocketing not only from last year’s output of 723,900 tonnes but more than double 2012’s production of 489,000 tonnes. While it’s no surprise that yields are lower than they were last year, they’re actually relatively in-line with the 2010-2012 average. Speciﬁcally, canola and wheat yields are the same as the aforementioned average, but when 2013 is factored in, 2014’s estimated yields are 1.25 per cent and 6 per cent below the 2010-2013 average. While your farm’s yields may vary from the national average, the real love lost this year will be in the quality area as that’s what should really be the theme to this year’s crop, not the production drop year-over-year. a story on new equipment which is targeted at the idea of biomass being procured and used to make fuels – the third connection to the topic in a matter of days. The article reports the ﬁrst of three projects opened last week, the Poet-DSM cellulosic corn stover plant at Emmetsburg, Iowa. The facility is expected to produce 20 million gallons annually. “Dupont’s 30 million gallon facility at Nevada, Iowa, is near completion, and the Spanish company Abengoa expects to be in production by year’s end at Hugonton, Kansas,” continued the article. “Close to a million tonnes a year of biomass will be required at the facilities, according to company website.” A two-stage conversion is involved, with sugars produced from the biomass subsequently converted into ethanol. The idea of biomass has greater potential since there are sources which are currently waste products, from corn stalks to the material left in forestry operations, to urban landﬁll. To utilize waste in a manner to create energy is certainly more attractive than consuming food for the same purpose.

This past week though we got important reports from both the U.S.D.A. and Statistics Canada, recording grain inventories and production estimates respectively. With some of the earliest-planted ﬁelds of corn and soybeans coming off in the American Midwest, yields are coming in above the U.S.D.A.’s estimates of 171 and 46 bushels per acre (apparently big crops do get bigger). On the wheat side of things, there’s some conﬂicting headlines as the International Grains Council is forecasting that world wheat acres in 2015 will be at their highest since 1998, with 553.5 million acres expected to come off. However, soil moisture deﬁciencies have been pointed out in southern parts of Russia & Ukraine, and while August/September rains have certainly helped the ﬁelds in Texas, Kansas, and Oklahoma (the US Southern Plains), the majority of these states remain in drought. Further, the market theme out of the Black Sea is that wheat exports are slowing down, making E.U. and North American wheat more competitive in the Middle East.

Student Leadership Conference 2014 “Another Brick in the Wall” Michael Andersen, Hayden Bartley, Joelle Hoeﬂicher, Tara Johnson, Ryan Aiken, Brett Bischler, Autumn Mcleod-Labrecque, Sydney Kvinlaug, Kali Stocks, Dylan Kvinlaug, Miss Boskill and Mrs. Moar attended this year’s Saskatchewan Student Leadership Conference in Nipawin on Sept. 17–19. Over 700 student delegates and staff advisors from across Saskatchewan came together for three days to develop leadership skills and meet new people. The theme of the conference was “Another Brick in the Wall”. Students and staff from L.P. Miller Comprehensive High School welcomed everyone with great enthusiasm. To kick things off there was a welcome BBQ, ﬁeld activities, dancing and music. Students and advisors then gathered in the school gymnasium for the opening ceremonies and to hear the ﬁrst keynote speaker, Ian Tyson. The opening ceremonies also included the presentation of awards –one which was the Provincial Award of Excellence in Student Activities. We are very proud to announce that Canwood School SRC was one of this year’s winners. Mrs. Moar was also presented with the Saskatchewan Association of Student Council Advisors, Advisor of the Year Award. The students were presented with a banner that will be proudly displayed in our school and Mrs. Moar was presented with an engraved plaque. Many thanks to Mrs. Johnson and Joelle Hoeﬂicher who ﬁlled out the nomination forms and submitted our names to the Provincial SASCA executive. Over the next two days the students attended various breakout sessions and were entertained and inspired by some great speakers, including Phil Boyte, Kevin Brooks and Marc Scharenbroich. Thursday ﬁnished off with a formal banquet and a dance at the Nipawin Evergreen Centre. Everyone enjoyed their time at SLC and arrived home on Friday with new ideas, cheers, positive stories and a closer bond with the other members of our SRC! The students are also looking forward to next year when the conference will be held in Shellbrook and they will be able to help out at the ground level. The Grade 11 and 12 students from Canwood Public School headed north to the PANP to begin their annual canoe expedition to Grey Owl’s cabin on Aug. 29. The enthusiastic group consisted of 10 students and 2 chaperones. After registering for the Back Country Camping, the group watched a short video outlining the dangers of big lake ﬂat water canoeing as well as being made aware of the precautions to take to avoid contact with bears. Following the registration, the group was transported to the drop off point to Kingsmere Lake. After the canoes were loaded with gear, it set off on the river to the portage. The paddling and steering techniques that were practiced at Fish Lake a week earlier were put to a quick test against the current of the river. The ﬁrst night was spent at Bladebone Bay. This required a 4 hour paddle from the south end of the lake. The Canoe Gods were with us as the water was quite calm and the temperature was 18°C. After setting up camp at Bladebone, the hungry paddlers ate supper. After supper was cleaned up, the task of creating a bear cache out of a canoe strung up in the trees began. This ended up to be a work of art and very functional. The kids woke up Saturday morning to the sound of a south east wind bringing waves straight into the bay. Everyone took their time having a big breakfast and tearing down camp. The timing was perfect which allowed the canoe party to get on the water by 11:30 a.m. as the wind had switched to a more favourable direction. The group reached the North End campground at 1:30 p.m.. Camp was set up and lunch was eaten by 3:00 p.m.. Everyone put on a good pair of shoes and embarked on the hike to Sandy Bay. Many pictures were taken through the mossy path, small creeks and downed trees on the way to the Sandy campground. Everyone returned to the Northend by 6 p.m., just in time to gather up some grub before darkness arrived. On Sunday, the canoeists were eager to make the trek to Grey Owl’s cabin. Some chose to hike while the others took their canoes over the trail so that they could get some ﬁshing in after visiting the cabin. The ﬁshing did not disappoint as many pike and walleye were caught and released. Only a few were kept for supper that night. This is always the best day of the trip as it is not too taxing on the canoers and there is a lot of time just to hang out with their classmates on the beach. It was a perfect day sitting in the canoe with a little radio, listening to the Roughrider game while catching some enthusiastic ﬁsh. The evening concluded with supper and returning to the beach after dark to star gaze. Everyone tore down the camp on Monday morning and made the journey down the east side of the lake in a casual 4 hours. While paddling, part of the group passed the time planning for the ﬁrst pep rally of the school year by singing all of the songs they wanted to share with the group back at school. After camp was set up at the Southend campground, a familiar face appeared. A former student who was on the trip 2 years prior and wanted to show his cousin the beauty of the region, was just ﬁnishing his trip. The canoeing skills he learned in the past were being put to good use. The students were also made aware of how quick the weather could turn bad on Kingsmere as a quick storm brewed up large waves within about 15 minutes. Small hikes, a little swimming and games of hide and seek occupied the group into the night. Everyone was looking forward to getting home on Tuesday. The gear was packed up into canoes after a very large breakfast. The paddle to the portage was very leisurely as the canoes drifted down the river to the unloading spot. The group met up with the trucks that transported everyone back to Canwood with eyes full of beautiful scenery and our minds full of memories to be shared for many years to come. Terry Fox Run Terry’s journey is one that we will never forget. His dream was for a world without cancer. Thirty four years ago Terry’s words were, “Even if I don’t ﬁnish, we need others to con- Shellbrook Chronicle 9 tinue. It’s got to keep going on without me!”. How proud Terry would be to know that so many years after his memorable and heroic journey, his dream and his belief in miracles is still going strong. At 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 24, Constable Haley from the Ahtahkakoop RCMP Detachment, with his lights ﬂashing, kicked off the walk as Pre-K – Grade 4 students, parents and staff made their way down the streets of Canwood to Whispering Pine Place. Grades 6–12 made their way from the school to the Regional Park. Everyone enjoyed walking or running in the sunshine. When the participants returned to the school they purchased a hearty fundraising lunch of beef/bison stew. A number of draws were made and prizes were given out to the Terry Fox participants. A total of $2861.14 was raised for cancer research and more proceeds are still coming in. LIBRARY NEWS Wow, what a beautiful fall we’ve had! Winter is just around the corner and some serious reading time will soon be upon us. Just a reminder that October is Canadian Library Month so try to visit your local library for some great reading. Thank you to Kelcie Grimard for donating a new book to our library. Senior Golf Three Canwood Cougar golfers entered the North Central District Grass Green golf championships at the Cooke Municipal Golf Course on Sept. 18. In order to advance to Provincials the local golfers would have to compete against strong competition from Prince Albert and Area. Our team was quite inexperienced compared to other golfers. Unfortunately, Delayne Aiken, Brody Cyr and Colton Bahnuick did not advance from District playoffs but hopefully this experience will help them in the future as Canwood forges ahead into Grass Green golf. Elementary Soccer We had an excellent year for elementary soccer this fall. On Sept. 8 our soccer season began and we had 32 students join from Grade 2 to Grade 6 to participate in the sport. We were so excited to have so many students come out to play, it was deﬁnitely a fun season!! On Sept. 22 and September 29 we played 2 games against Debden. The students showed off their skills and abilities in successful matches and kept close scores in each game. We had the most beautiful weather for our ﬁrst game in Debden and the temperatures cooled off a bit for our second game at home in Canwood. We are so proud of our students’ teamwork and collaboration in practice and during our games! We would also like to add a special thanks to everyone who helped out with practices and games. Way to go, Canwood Cougars!! New to our school this year is the Dream Catcher Project, a Sask. Rivers School Division coaching project. The focus of the project is to increase the achievement of every student in our school. This means setting a school - wide goal and having a school-based instructional coach work with staff and students to achieve it. Canwood Public School’s 2014 – 2105 smart goal is: By June 2015, 100 per cent of SRPSD students will be achieving mastery or proﬁciency in mathematics literacy or will have 50 per cent catch up growth in mathematics literacy (students not achieving mastery or proﬁciency standards) or will reach their individual benchmark level in mathematics literacy. Our speciﬁc goal will be our focus on the Number Strand (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing). By June 2015, 100 per cent of the Grades K–10 students will be achieving mastery or proﬁciency in mathematical outcomes in the Number Strand or will reach their individual benchmark. 10 Shellbrook Chronicle By Laura Lepard and Tammie Burak www.shellbrookchronicle.com Healthy by Nature Healthy by Nature gives you the information you need for better health through better lifestyle October is Agriculture Month in Sask. Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart has proclaimed October as Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan. The month will focus on proﬁling opportunities in agriculture to youth. “Agriculture is one of the largest economic engines in Saskatchewan, accounting for about 10 per cent of the provincial gross domestic product and generating more than 50,000 jobs in the province,” Stewart said. “As harvest continues and school gets underway, October is an ideal time to share with youth the opportunities that this thriv- 306-747-2442 Classifieds Work [email protected] October 10, 2014 ing industry has to offer.” With a growing global demand for food comes high demand for well-trained individuals to work in the agriculture industry. To attract youth to a rewarding career in agriculture, the ministry has launched a new web presence at www.saskatchewan. ca/thinkag that proﬁles real Saskatchewan people employed in the industry. In addition to interactive career features, this site offers scholarship information and teacher resources. In addition to the website, a thinkAG Facebook page has also been launched to give current and potential ag employees a forum to discuss careers in agriculture and what the industry has to offer. During the month of October, teachers, career counsellors, producers and industry are encouraged to get involved in spreading the message that a job in agriculture can lead to a challenging, rewarding career. Stay connected with Agriculture Month by following the Ministry of Agriculture on Twitter @SKGovAG, on Facebook at Saskatchewan Agriculture or by visiting our website at www.saskatchewan.ca/thinkag.

Dr. Joel Fuhrman a boardcertiﬁed physician in the United States and a member of the Institute for Functional Medicine, recently gave a TEDx talk about nutritional science and medicine. He called the American diet, which is virtually identical to the Canadian diet, “dramatically nutritionally deﬁcient.” Typical diets are made up mostly of processed foods and animal products, he stated, which have a low ratio of nutrients to calories. He explained that combined with an inactive lifestyle, this nutritionally deﬁcient diet wrecks our health. Like water drops running onto a rock from a waterfall, over time, those water drops will crack a boulder. In the same way, daily nutritional and lifestyle stressors take their toll on our health. “It’s the toxic American lifestyle that’s resulting in the all these diseases, driving people to the doctors’ ofﬁces,” says Dr. Fuhrman. In treating patients, Dr. Fuhrman recommends a nutrient dense, plant-based diet that he calls a “nutritarian diet” which is rich in nutrients, antioxidants and phyto-chemicals. He says this diet, with its high nutrient-to-calorie ratio, leads to a longer, healthier life, stops food addictions and cravings and helps people attain their ideal weight. Dr. Fuhrman uses a little proverb to help people remember the importance of eating nutrient-rich foods instead of the typical North American diet. He tells people, “The whiter the bread, the sooner you’re dead. The more you eat green, the more you get lean.” Stressing the importance of eating more produce, he sums up his diet recommendations in an acronym. G-BOMBS stands for Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds. It’s these dietary elements that Dr. Fuhrman calls the“immune system special forces” because foods in these groups inhibit fat storage, ﬁght cancer and lengthen life span. “Heart attacks, strokes and dementia don’t have to happen,” Dr. Fuhrman asserts. These things are not a natural consequence of aging, but instead are the results of our diet and lifestyle choices. He also contends that the war on cancer can be won now because we already have the studies and information we need to ﬁght it. “A nutritarian diet is therapeutically more effective than medications for almost every medical condition,” he insists. As an example of what the “nutritarian diet” can do, Dr. Fuhrman refers tosome patients whose health was radically changed due to his simple, holistic lifestyle recommendations. He talks about Robert who was wheelchair bound and had rheumatoid arthritis and heart disease; Heather who suffered with constant headaches, insomnia, depression and anxiety; Donna who had ﬁbromyalgia; and Jodi who had severe psoriasis and suffered for 25 years with debilitating pain due to lupus. They all regained their health and were able to live free of pain, without medications, explains Dr. Fuhrman, because the body is a self-healing machine when it’s properly fed.

You can help reduce the risk of foodborne illness for your family and friends by following some basic food safety tips. Health Effects: The most common symptoms of food poisoning are stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and fever. Most people recover completely from foodborne illness, but some groups are at greater risk of serious health effects, like kidney problems and even death. The groups at greater risk are young children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems. General Food Safety Tips: There are four basic steps you should always follow to help reduce the risk of foodborne illness: Clean: Wash hands, contact surfaces (like kitchen counters) and utensils often to avoid the spread of bacteria. Separate: Keep raw foods separate from cooked and ready-to-eat foods to avoid cross-contamination. Cook: Use an instant-read digital thermometer and cook to these internal temperatures: 85°C (185°F) for whole poultry 74°C (165°F) for stufﬁng, casseroles, leftovers, egg dishes, ground turkey and ground chicken, including sau- sages containing poultry meat 71°C (160°F) for pork chops, ribs and roasts, and for ground beef, ground pork and ground veal, including sausages at least 63°C (145°F) for all whole muscle beef and veal cuts, like steaks and roasts Chill: Keep cold foods cold. Bacteria can grow rapidly when food is allowed to sit in the so-called danger zone: between 4°C (40°F) and 60°C (140°F). For additional holiday food safety tips, visit the Healthy Canadians website.

Like shrubs with golden and silver foliage, variegated shrubs can be used to show off shrubs with purplish foliage. Plant them adjacent to and slightly behind the shrubs with the purple foliage for the best effect. Although many shrubs have variegated foliage (varying from pinkish through gold and white-silver), the hardiest, the most striking and the most readily available are found among the dogwoods (Cornus). Several species have prominent variegation. Red-osier dogwood (Cornus sericea, syn. C. stolonifera) is native to the Canadian prairies, often found growing wild on the edge of sloughs or bush in moist situations. But redosier dogwood is surprisingly adaptable and moderately drought tolerant once established. It has an irregular but somewhat mound-like form, with a height and width of 1.8 to 2.7 m (6–9 ft.). The green leaves, opposite and simple, are promi- nently veined, oval and with pointed tips, turning red purple in fall. The small, white, ﬂat-topped clusters of ﬂowers in May and June give rise to bluish-white berries. The stems are dull red, becoming greyish with age and increased diameter (not unlike people). Red-osier dogwoods grow well in full sun to partial shade (up to 70 per cent shade), with the best fall foliage colour in full sun. They tolerate a range of soils. Although they do better with even moisture, they are moderately drought tolerant once established. The oldest stems can be removed at ground level to promote new growth with a bright red stem colour to enhance your winter landscape. They are well placed in shrub borders, as foundation plantings or used in naturalization. ‘Silver and Gold’ is large (1.8 m/6 ft. in height and spread) and better used in larger landscapes. It has variegated green foliage with a white margin and yellow stems and good winter value. ‘White Gold’, with a height and spread of 2.5 m (8 ft.), has green and creamy white variegated foliage and bright gold winter stems.

East, Shellbrook, SK 1-888-747-8001 306-747-3142 www.integratire.ca There are many variegated selections of Tartarian dogwood (Cornus alba). ‘Argenteo-marginata’, the silverleafed dogwood, has a height and spread of 1.5 to 2 m (5 to 6.5 ft.), variegated gray-green and creamy white foliage and red winter stems. It does best in partial shade. Ivory Halo is an upright, compact selection. The green leaves have white margins, and the stems are red in winter. It has a rounded form and is 1.5 m (5 ft.) in height and spread. ‘Gouchaltii’ (aka Gold and Rose) is more rounded than most, with a height and spread of 2 m (6.5 ft.). It has variegated green leaves with yellow margins, often with a pink tinge, and red winter stems. Unfortunately, it appears susceptible to aphids. ‘Silver Charm’ is a dense, slow-growing, dwarf dogwood, approximately 1 m (3 ft.) in height and spread with silver and green variegation. It’s well suited to a smaller landscape.

Humans are afforded no such luxury. In fact, living a sedentary lifestyle during the colder months of the year can actually prove detrimental to human health. Exercise is beneficial any time of the year, but it can be especially so during the winter months when colder temperatures force many people inside, where they live more sedentary lifestyles than they do during the rest of the year. Adapting your exercise habits in the winter can help you make it through the colder months in great shape. There is no reason to stop exercising when the temperature drops. The American Heart Association says working out in the cold weather has distinct advantages over working out in hot and humid conditions. When the weather is cold, you may be able to work out longer and harder because the heat won’t zap your energy levels, and exercising outdoors in the winter is a great way to get small doses of sunlight that can improve mood and help your body produce more vitamin D. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Pointers for the upcoming hunting season Hunting is a popular hobby and sport enjoyed by millions of people across North America. Over the last 10 years, data from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service indicates that more and more females are taking up hunting. 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 says exercise can help boost your immune system, which can help you fight colds and flu symptoms. Just a few minutes of exercise each day can help prevent simple viral and bacterial infections as well. Working out in the winter may help you burn more calories than in warmer seasons. Research published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found that race times are faster in cold weather than in warmer temperatures. Quicker runs or walks can burn more calories. If exercising outdoors is too uncomfortable, break up your routine into smaller, more manageable sessions. Aim for 10 minute sessions several times per day. This quickly can add up to the 30 minutes of daily recommended exercise. Dress in layers so you can feel comfortable, adjusting your clothing as necessary. You don’t want to be freezing, but you don’t want to wear so many clothes that you start sweating and risk hypothermia. Consider less traditional exercises when winter sets in. These include shoveling snow, sledding, skating, skiing, and snowshoeing. SALE BY TENDER 1. Under the provisions of The Tax Enforcement Act, the R.M. of Canwood No. 494 offers for sale the following properties: Block A, Plan No. 101510615 Ext 20; a portion of SW 16-49-05 W3 Block 4, Mont Nebo, Plan BD532 Ext 3 Lot 9, Block 2, Mont Nebo, Plan BD532 Lot 1, Block 1, Mont Nebo, Plan BD532 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 rif le, 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. Hunting season is on the horizon and that means preparing now for the few weeks of sport to come. 2.

Lorna Benson Administrator 14 Shellbrook Chronicle www.shellbrookchronicle.com October 10, 2014 Prepare your vehicle now for the deep freeze Did you know that even in winter, a neglected cooling system is one of the main reasons for a vehicle break down? Antifreeze/coolant performs three important functions. It protects the cooling system from freezing, from boiling over, and from premature wear due to corrosion. Even with long change intervals, the coolant level can become too low – and sometimes due to a leak, it can completely drain away. So be sure to put an antifreeze/coolant check on your pre-winter maintenance list. And to prevent being left on the side of the road in the cold, here are some additional quick tips from Prestone Products Corporation, a leading name in car care: • Protect your cooling system by choosing antifreeze/coolant with a high quality corrosion inhibitor, such as the Cor-Guard inhibitor package in the Prestone line. This is particularly important if your vehicle is new. Engine metals are thinner and lighter these days (to meet consumer demands for lower cost and improved gas mileage) so an anti-corrosion agent designed to meet new engine construction is vital. For topping up coolant levels, save time by using a premixed formulation of 50 per cent coolant and 50 per cent demineralized water. • Change to winter tires.

The Leafs are the Cubs because they’re the lovable losers, their most recent Stanley Cup win coming in1967 — 47 years ago. Cubs fans annually have high hopes until about a third of the way through the season, at which point they bring out their well-worn “Wait till next year” T-shirts. And the Leafs are the Cowboys because while the Dallas footballers are America’s team, the Leafs are most certainly Canada’s team. That foothold on the national love affair with the Leafs is fading, however, thanks to the addition of ﬁve other Canadianbased teams since the Leafs’ last Stanley Cup parade. But while it’s fading, broadcasters on Canada’s two sportsbased networks, TSN and Sportsnet, seem to do their utmost to lead the cheers for the Loveable Losers from T.O.

After one look at his ticket, Barnes exclaimed ‘I ain’t getting on no time machine,’ and promptly rented a car for the trip home.” • Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times: “Now that the Derek Jeter Farewell Tour has wrapped up, how’s that ‘Welcome Back, A-Rod’ campaign for 2015 coming along?” • Comedy writer Alan Ray, on a telltale sign its an NHL exhibition game: “The starters only ﬁght for one period.” • ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel, on the former Olympic decathlon champ Bruce Jenner’s plastic surgery: “When I was growing up his face was on a box of Wheaties. Now his face isn’t even on his face anymore.” • Greg Cote again: “The PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup playoffs were won by somebody named ‘Billy Horschel,’ a strong indicator that whatever the FedEx Cup playoffs are, they stink.” • Brad Dickson of the Omaha World-Herald: “In his ﬁnal home game, Derek Jeter hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth. In the interest of saving time, when Jeter arrived at ﬁrst base, a representative from Cooperstown was waiting with his Hall of Fame induction letter.” • Dickson again: “Suspended Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon is working as an auto salesman. I think it speaks volumes about the NFL that a guy who temporarily leaves the league to regain his moral compass goes to work selling cars.” • RJ Currie of sportsdeke. com: “A burglar was nabbed Shellbrook Chronicle 15 in Florida after police reportedly found him asleep in front of a TV inside the home he was robbing. Five bucks says he tuned in to a Cubs game.” • Currie again: “Proof that bad things come in threes: CFL games on TSN1, TSN2 and TSN3 all had play-byplay by Rod Black.” • Janice Hough of leftcoastsportsbabe.com: “Bill Simmons of ESPN was suspended three weeks for his profane rant about Roger Goodell where he called the commissioner a liar. Three weeks! Guess he should have just taken a swing at Goodell in an elevator.” • Steve Schrader of the Detroit Free Press: “After sacking Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Sunday, Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch jumped around — and tore the ACL in his left knee. Clearly the Lions aren’t used to celebrating.” Care to comment?

The odd sounds were merely the result of sewer rehabilitation work being performed by ACME Environmental Services, which also caused multiple intersections of Main Street to be partially blocked off by large trucks and equipment. Carter Matechuk, supervisor of underground services for ACME Environmental Services, said that the company is using a newer method of redoing sewer pipes that is faster, more environmentally friendly and most importantly, cost-effective. “It’s extremely beneﬁcial to communities because there’s no asphalt to repave, there’s no digging involved at all, and we can replace a full block in about 12 hours,” he explained. “If you dig, it takes a week or two, and it’s about twice as expensive. The newer method also allows workers to use prerehabilitation videos to identify problems, and postrehabilitation videos to ensure the job was done right before pipes are reopened. At time of publication, Matechuk anticipated that the job would be ﬁnished in two or three days. PRINCE ALBERT RAIDERS HOCKEY SCHEDULE Fri., October 17 ~ 7 p.m P.A.

CAA Saskatchewan re- minds all motorists to plan ahead for their long weekend travels to visit family and friends. “We know that there will be an increase of motorists on our roadways travel- ling to be with their loved ones,” said Christine Niemczyk, Director of Communica- 14102MF00 tions with CAA Saskatchewan. She added, “That’s why it’s important to plan ahead and ensure your vehicle is roadworthy. We know that in Saskatchewan the weather can change quickly which can impact driving conditions. Be prepared: adjust your driving behaviour to the changing environments.” Here are a few more safe driving tips: - Ensure your vehicle is in top working condition with a full tank of gas and properly inflated tires to help with fuel efficiency. A poorly maintained vehicle can use up to 50 per cent more fuel. Under-inflated tires also reduce safety and fuel efficiency. - Check your vehicle’s belts and hoses. Just a little attention to these vital components can ensure your car is operating at its best. - Also check the brakes, fluid levels and battery. Today’s vehicles have more electrical demands than ever and batteries play an essential role in meeting those demands. - Allow extra time for travel and let others know your route and expected time of arrival. - Check weather and travel conditions before heading out. If conditions are poor, delay travel if possible. - Before heading out, visit www.getgasprices.ca for the lowest gas prices in Saskatchewan communities as well as in other provinces. - All occupants must wear seat belts. - Ensure children are properly secured and that car seats and booster seats are installed correctly. - Don’t speed. It’s dangerous, and driving above 90 km/hr decreases your fuel efficiency exponentially. - Slow to 60 km/hr in construction zones and when passing tow trucks and emergency vehicles on Saskatchewan highways. Failing to do so is not only unsafe, but could also cost you a fine. - Remember: the use of hand-held communications devices behind the wheel is banned in Saskatchewan as well as in all Canadian provinces. It’s unsafe and monetary penalties can be steep. - Eliminate driver distractions such as eating, drinking, adjusting radio dials and smoking. - Don’t drive if you’re overtired. Stop for regular breaks. - Appoint passengers to be the navigator and cell phone user and let them check for directions and make phone calls or text so the driver can focus on driving and not become distracted. - Don’t drink and drive. Appoint a designated driver.
