The current residents of Townview Manor will be relocated


by May 31st as a major 16-month renovation of the local
Manitoba Housing complex gets underway.

he residents of Townview Manor are preparing to move but not


by choice. In late December, the residents received
a letter informing them
that they would be relocated by May 31st. The
reason? A major, estimated $6.9 million renovation
to the 43-year-old Manitoba Housing complex.
Plans include an extensive
revamp of the aging sixstorey building transform-

ing it into 42 new, one

We are moving forward with what is called a
deep refresh, stated Gordon Thompson of Manitoba Housing. We will be
upgrading the buildings
plumbing, life safety systems and remodelling the

Townview
Manor,
built on the site of the
former Minnedosa South
School, was built in the
early 1970s and welcomed
its first residents in October 1973. At the time it was
built, Minnedosas high

double suites. The upcoming major renovation is

capacity as was the case in
its glory days.

residents of the housing

Trudeaus First Spending
Commitments Are
$0 For Canada
Dear Editor,

ts taken barely two months for the Liberals to drastically increase spending, including almost $2.85 billion to
be spent overseas on vague international climate change
initiatives (thats $0 in Canada). The Liberals spending
means that Canadians money is going to countries with
larger economies than Canada, and while we all care
about the environment, it is diffi cult to see this as the
right approach when Canada is only responsible for 1.6%
of global CO2 emissions. The Trudeau government has
yet to explain why their carbon tax is the right approach
and how sending money overseas will accomplish real
and tangible environmental benefits here in Canada.
This money was unilaterally spent without Parliamentary approval or even while Parliament was sitting.
This leaves Members of Parliament unable to hold the
Liberals accountable for their spending, or even able to
see where that money is going beyond scant public details.
The Liberals have shown that their priorities are not
to invest in rural Manitoba, create jobs, or keep taxes low
for Canadian families. Instead, they jetted over to Paris
with billions of dollars of Canadians money to be spent
on expensive environmental projects. Many of these
projects have unclear goals and will do little to combat
international climate change. Yet the Liberals have committed billions of dollars to an international climate
change fund that will give money to developing third
world countries.
Between the Liberals overseas spending, their
cancellation of the Conservative low-tax plan, massive
planned deficit spending, and their significant reduction
of Tax-Free Savings Accounts, Manitobans will be quickly
feeling the effects of a big Liberal government in Ottawa.
I will continue to ask questions of the Liberals on
how specifically their big government spending will benefi t Manitobans and Canadians. Government spending
is about priorities, and the Trudeau government has
proven that their priorities are wrong.

ehicle technology,
good old-fashioned
investigation skills and
strong partnerships with
police agencies were major factors in helping identify those people who tried
to defraud Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI).
Fraudulent and suspicious claims are handled
by MPIs Special Investigation Unit (SIU). The eff orts
of this special unit resulted
in fraud savings last year of
$7.6 million for Manitoba
auto insurance rate payers.
The SIU investigates about
2,500 claims yearly.

1. Crash Data Recorder
Tells All
A man stated that he
had been the victim of two
consecutive hit-and-runs,
on the same night. He told
MPI investigators that he
was struck from behind by
a dark SUV while driving in
rural Manitoba. The driver
of the SUV did not stop, so
the man quickly went into
pursuit mode. A short time
later, the vehicle owner
claimed his vehicle was hit
from the side by a truck

with the driver of the truck


getting out and fleeing to
the original dark SUV.
This stranger-than-fi ction story quickly resulted
in an SIU investigation, at
which time the Crash Data
Recorder indicated that the
vehicle was parked at the
time of the impacts. The
man would be charged,
and later pleaded guilty to
public mischief, receiving
a fi ne of $3,500. His claim
was also denied, resulting
in a saving of $15,000 to
MPI ratepayers.

Faced with all the facts,

Food Bank Challenge To Heart

Local Man Sentenced To


Two Years In Prison

SUBMITTED

By DARRYL HOLYK

fter participating in a food bank challenge at school


in October, seven-year-old Hayden Pollon came
home and asked his parents to find him a big box that he
could fill with items to donate to the food bank. He then
asked members of his family, including aunts, uncles
and grandparents for donations for the local food bank.
His mom, Mindy indicated that when Hayden was grocery
shopping with her, he would pick out items to buy for the
donation box. He became quite knowledgeable in what
items could and couldnt be donated.
Just in time for Christmas, on Th ursday, December
17th, Hayden delivered the items he had collected to the
Minnedosa and Area Food Bank. His donation totalled
10.1 Kg.
During his delivery, the volunteers at the food bank
were wonderful. They showed Hayden around and let
him help sort the items he donated. On the way home,
Hayden asked his mom when he could go back and help.
This generous Grade Two student should be very
proud of his efforts and is a role model for others, showing
that you are never too young to volunteer and do something nice to help others.

avid Lyle Hartley, age 37, was sentenced to two


years in prison followed by one year probation
as punishment for a number of illegal actions he has
been involved with over the past couple years.
RCMP raided a rental home in Minnedosa and a
property in the R.M. of Odanah in September 2014.
Hartley had been living in town in a house rented
from Manitoba Housing while also continuing to rent
property in Odanah. At his property in town, police
found heroine and hydromorphone (opioid/narcotic)
pain medication. At the rural property, police discovered over 20 marijuana plants, with some harvested
plants drying in a barn and a sizable grow operation
inside the vacant, rundown farmhouse. In a forested
area on the property, police uncovered an additional
crop of over 300 marijuana plants in various stages of
growth. The entire bust amounted to what could have
produced over 60 pounds of marijuana worth between $122,000 to $176,000.
The following April, Hartley was charged with impaired driving after causing a crash while under the
influence of drugs. Only a month later, in May 2015,
Hartley was found to be in possession of stolen recreational vehicles including a snowmobile and two
motorcycles.
Investigation determined that Hartley was unemployed and benefi tting from social assistance while
having a grow op worth well over $100,000 and owning numerous vehicles including recreation and sport
vehicles such as motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles, a
boat and a camper.
His sentence comes as a result of charges related
to a variety of charges including the production of a
controlled substance, possessing property obtained
by crime and numerous other charges including some
related to risking the well being and safety of his own
children as a result of his numerous illegal activities.

Downtown Hit By
Fire and Break-in
By DARRYL HOLYK

he big news for downtown Minnedosa over the


holidays was the New Years Eve standoff in a
suite above Liberty Physiotherary and Minnedosa
Chiropractic Centre, but two other businesses had
some recent unwelcome excitement as well.
At 4:42 a.m. on December 27th, nine members
of the Minnedosa Fire Department responded to
a fire at the Minnedosa Laundromat. Due to the
size and location of the fire, the team was able to
extinguish the fire with minimal damage.
The Office of the Fire Commissioner has determined it was incendiary or deliberately set.
That means its still part of an ongoing RCMP investigation and no other details are available at
this time.
Patrons of the Minnedosa Inn Beverage Room
found a closed sign on the door the morning of
Monday, January 4th following a break-in. RCMP
have confirmed that video footage from the location has been seized and that an undisclosed
amount of cash was stolen. This incident is also
under investigation with no further details being
released at this time.

Family Business Sells To National Firm


John, Cherokee and Callie
Mendrikis announced the
sale of their family business. We are confident
MNP LLP is the right service provider for our existing clients and have every
confidence they will fulfill
your current tax and accounting needs with a high
level of service at a reasonable price.
John indicated that
he and Cherokee are looking to the future and have
started to think about retirement. An opportunity to
sell their business to MNP
LLP was a great fit to set
their future plans in motion, although they have
no immediate plans to retire just yet and will stay
on board working for MNP
LLP.
With the business
expanding as it was, we
needed to reach out for extra support that we didnt
have in the past, said John,
adding that there will not
be any major changes as
a result of this business
transaction. The business

will continue to operate out


of the same building and
retain the same staff. In
addition to John, Cherokee
and Callie, the business
also includes Ed Maguire
and Catriona Dafoe. With
the changeover to MNP
LLP, Callie will assume the
role as Office Manager for
the Minnedosa office.
There will be ongoing training available if we
want to further our knowledge in certain areas and
specialty services, stated
Callie. All the services
MNP offer are now available through the Minnedosa office.
MNP is no stranger to
Minnedosa, first appearing
in August 1987 as a result
of a merger with the Johnson and Glennie Accounting firm. Most recently,
MNP had an office in the
brick building north of the
Cenotaph before moving
their local clients to their
Neepawa office.
The Mendrikis purchased the Step-a-Bout
shoe business and build-

ing on September 1st,


1981. Ten years later a rear
expansion to the building
brought with it a relationship with H and R Block.
Daughter Callie came
on board with the family
business in 1995. Following the closure of Step-aBout Shoes, the front of
the building was rented
out and was occupied by
a wine and beer making
store and Pic-a-Pop outlet.
In 2001, Johns Tax Service
and Accounting opened
and operated successfully
until December 31st, 2015.
John, Cherokee and
Callie have run a really
good business, said Marvin Beaumont of MNP LLP
Neepawa office. Nothing
will really change in the
Minnedosa office other
than new signage and the
phone greeting. It will be
the same friendly faces
when people walk in. We
will be offering Minnedosa
businesses some expanded services and look forward to meeting all of their
accounting and tax needs.

2015 An Amazing Year For Erickson Teen


By JEFF PEARSON
2015 will be a very
memorable year for Emma
Gray, an Erickson teen
who enjoyed 12 months
of amazing accomplishments and valuable experiences. Emma grew up on
the family farm just northwest of Erickson and is in
her graduating year at Erickson Collegiate Institute.
Her remarkable year began in February 2015 with
a three-month exchange
trip to France. Then, in early December, she was rubbing shoulders with some
internationally celebrated
humanitarians in Calgary,
AB followed by a trip to
Winnipeg two weeks later
to receive an award from
Manitoba Premier Greg
Selinger. Quite a year for a
17-year-old farm girl!
Venturing to Nantes,
France, through the Canadian Education Exchange Foundation program, Emma attended
high school there and lived
with her exchange family
for three months. She returned to Canada in late
April to finish Grade 11 in
Erickson. I attended Lycee Georges Clemeneau

in Nantes and found the


difference in the way high
schools are run in France
very interesting, Emma
said. Students were given
a lot of independence and
were expected to take a lot
of initiative in their education. She also mentioned
the school days were longer and the school she
attended had Saturday
morning classes. Emma
recalls one of the most
memorable experiences
was Easter weekend when
she travelled with her exchange family for a tour
of Normandy and later
to Calais in the north of
France to the Canadian
War Cemetery. Here, she
was able to pay her respects at the grave of her
great-great-uncle Gordon
Carlson, who bravely lost
his life in the battle of Calais during World War II.
Emmas grade 12 year
has already been decorated with a couple of
outstanding accomplishments. In mid October,
she entered an essay in a
Canada-wide competition.
Sponsored by the Canadian Seed Trade Association,
the competition provides
an opportunity for entrants

to become one of two Future Influencers featured


at Canadas premiere agricultural
conference,
GrowCanada. Emma was
one of the two students
chosen and was excited to
be off on an all-expensespaid trip to Calgary for the
three-day conference December 1st to 3rd. While
there, she met leaders of
some of the worlds most
important agriculture and
food companies while participating in industry discussions. As one of the two
Future Influencers, Emma
played a central role in
the conference by providing closing comments for
seven of the 13 speakers
in front of an audience of
500 conference delegates
comprised of some of the
most influential players in
the industry. I am incredibly proud of my daughter,
Emmas mother said, not
only for this amazing opportunity and experience,
but for Emma to overcome
her fear of public speaking in front of such a large
audience was a tremendous accomplishment for
her. She was chosen to
provide closing comments
for some of the keynote
speakers such as Romeo
Dallaire, celebrated humanitarian, mental health
and human rights advocate and Dr. Maurice Moloney, Executive Director
and CEO of the Global Institute for Food Security.
Emmas farm upbringing
and involvement with the
Clear Lake Group gave
her a well-rounded wealth

and Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger (R).
of knowledge in writing
her winning essay.
A couple weeks after her return to the quiet
community of Erickson,
Emma was off to Winnipeg
to accept one of ten $500
bursaries presented by
Premier Greg Selinger for
The Premiers Healthy Living Award for Youth. She
applied for the bursary and

was chosen as one of the


ten based on her tremendous leadership within her
high schools Gay-Straight
Alliance Committee and
her involvement teaching
junior curling within the
community.

2016 is already well


on its way to being just as
rewarding for Emma as
she plans on attending the
University of Manitoba
Faculty of Science with a
major in Biological Science.

Bombers Tradition Continues

Photo by Jeff Pearson

By JEFF PEARSON

Boxing Day tradition


in our community for
more than 35 years is the
Minnedosa Senior Bombers Social.
For three decades,
the Bombers Boxing Day
Social is the place to be
and unwind after Christmas. Bruce McNabb, who
has been involved with the
Bombers for many years,
could not pinpoint exactly
what year the annual social began. Im thinking 1978 or 1979, Bruce
stated. We used to always
have a Boxing Day hockey
game against Neepawa,
alternating home games
each year, but they didnt
want to have the game any
longer so we started the

Boxing Day Social in its


place.
Expressions
Entertainment of Brandon
turned the Minnedosa
Community Conference
Centre into what felt like
a big city nightclub for
the Bombers Boxing Day
Social. The main hall was
vibrating with energy as
music filled the room and
festive partiers danced the
night away in an atmosphere of rotating spotlights and strobes, misted
by smoke machines. Bryan Podworny, owner of Expressions Entertainment
exclaimed, the mood is
really upbeat and everyone is up dancing, I love
being a part of nights like
this!
Brett McNabb, one of

the event organizers, estimated there were approximately 200 people who
attended.
The annual
social is defi nitely one of
our biggest fundraisers,
along with our local sponsorships, and has been for
many years, said Brett.
The Minnedosa
Bombers are grateful to
their fans, families and
community friends for
supporting their games
and annual social. The
Bombers look forward to
seeing you in the stands for
the upcoming games. On
Sunday, January 10th they
are travelling to Neepawa
followed by a home game
at the local arena on Saturday, January 16th against
the Cartwright Clippers.

hen Erickson resident, Mike Kambeitz, bought


a Set For Life scratch ticket at Kolisnyks General Store in Cowan, MB he was hopeful that it would
be a winner. His hopes came true when he scratched
it and learned it was a winner. At first he was excited
at the thought that he had just won $2,500. This excitement grew even greater when he took a closer
look at his ticket and realized it was not $2,500 he
had won but a much larger amount. Kambeitz lucky
ticket actually made him $25,000 richer!
I was happy and surprised when I thought that
I had won $2,500, Mike said. When I realized I had
won $25,000 I was completely shocked. I couldnt
believe it!
Kambeitz plans to use his winnings wisely. With
this extra money, Mike will pay off his vehicle loan
and some other bills. Im defi nitely going to put
some money away, he said. I know that this will
help me a lot. But Ill probably keep trying to win the
big jackpot!

Make Your Own Tasty Meat Rub


Solutions and
Substitutions
By

REENA NERBAS
Dear Reena,
We have a seven year
old Sil Granite sink. Its
colour has really faded.
Before it was a very matt
black now it is avery faded
black with white smears/
streaks. We used a colour
enhancer product provided when I bought the sink.
I have used two bottles of
that which has not helped.
Any chance you have a
gem of an idea to get the
smears off
and somewhat of the colour back?
Damien

that I can use on pork?


Heidi

Dear Damien,
Your best bet is to wipe
the sink with cooking or
olive oil after use; this will
remove all of the stains,
repel water from sitting on
the sink and forming white
stains and brighten the
sink.

Dear Reena,
We have a water stain
on our popcorn ceiling
and were told to try Kilz
overhead stain sealer. Now
we have a yellow discolouration on top of the stain!
Any suggestions? Wendy

Dear Reena,
I would like to prepare
my own rub for meat. Can
you give me an easy recipe

Dear Heidi,
Here is an easy recipe
which is perfect for about
six pounds of meat. Into a
bowl combine one quarter cup sugar, 4 tbsp. black
pepper, one tbsp. salt, one
quarter cup paprika, 2 tsp.
dry mustard and 2 tsp.
cayenne pepper. Rub half
of the mixture onto meat
12 hours prior to cooking.
Rub the other half on right
before cooking.

Dear Wendy,
Kilz is a popular brand
name but there are many
products under this name;
from Flat Wall and Ceiling

Paint to Colour Changing


Ceiling Paint to Paint with
Stain Blocking. You may
need to prime the area
before painting the ceiling but your best bet is to
explain your situation to
your paint specialist and
seek advice. Or contact
the Kilz website and query
which product is best for
your situation.
Dear Reena,
How do I go about
fi xing my yellowed microwave door, help? Jen
Dear Jen,
This may be a permanent condition but dont
give up without a fight!
Spread toothpaste onto the
yellowed area. Dampen
the brush with water and
scrub with an old toothbrush. Rinse with water
and wipe.
Dear Reena,
I presently have a set
of lamps given to me by my
late parents. They have a
glass base and I wonder if
they can be painted as we
have changed our decor/
colours. If so, what type of
paint might be used? O.
Dear O,
Yes, you can absolutely paint the glass base!
Begin by unplugging the

Junior Bonspiel

lamp and cleaning the


base well with plain old
dish soap and water. Dry
and cover any electrical
wires. Spray on heatproof
paint in the colour of your
choice.
Dear Reena,
Why do people deep
fry turkeys instead of baking them. I was given a
deep fryer specifically for
this purpose but I havent
used it. Is it worth the effort? Nana
Dear Nana,
I have a friend that
heads down to the U.S. every November for American Thanksgiving just because her dad deep fries
the turkey. She says it is the
best way to prepare turkey
and nothing beats the flavour. Deep frying turkey
is a Cajun tradition that
produces juicy meat and
crispy skin; many people
agree it is out of this world.
FABULOUS TIP
OF THE WEEK!

he annual Minnedosa
Junior Bonspiel was
held at the local curling
club on Sunday, January
3rd. Event sponsors were
the Westman Brier Foundation and UCT.
A total of eight teams
competed with representation from Minnedosa,
Erickson, Neepawa, Carberry and Binscarth.
Th e teams were divided into two groups of
four and played a round
robin of three games each

in their group of six ends.


Th e Landon Poitras
team (above) from Carberry of Zak Ajax, Austin Poitras and Devin Crerar won
all three of their games
to capture the first group
win. The other group win
went to the Hunter Dundas team (below)from the
Erickson-Onanole area of
Cassidy Dundas, Josie Sallows and Mathew Penner.
All participants were
provided with lunch and
some prize money for
each win or tie.

Why throw out empty


toilet paper rolls when
you can use them to store
messy electrical cords.
Wind the cord and place it
inside the tube. Some people even decorate the tube
with wall or shelf paper

CARD OF THANKS
A HUGE THANK YOU
to all the Musicians/Singers,
Choirs, Clergy Members, Van
Drivers, Trooper Pet Therapy
and ALL other volunteers that
enrich the lives of our Elders
here at the Personal Care Home.
The time that YOU give to us
ALL YEAR ROUND is appreciated more than you could ever
know. Merry Christmas and
Best Wishes to you and your
families for 2016. Lori Birch
PCH Activities Supervisor.x
A special thank you to
the two young girls who delivered a surprise Christmas treat
gift and a card to our home the
evening of December 23rd.
The treats are so good and we
especially liked the card. We
are so pleased you liked our
Christmas light display and
want you to know how much
we appreciated your kindness and thoughtfulness. You
touched our hearts and made
this Christmas so very special
for us, we wont forget you! (I
am so sorry I did not hear your
names.). Marge and Walter
Samborski. x

We, the family of Carmela Rose Warwaruk (April


27th, 1977 October 28th,
2015), wish to express our
heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the many special
people who helped alleviate
the sorrow with the passing
of Carmela. To everyone who
visited, provided food, gifts,
sent flowers, made donations
in her memory and extended
support through sympathy
cards, mass cards, phone calls
and prayers, we will always
remember your kindness and
the comfort it provided. A special thank you to Carmelas
friends and families in Colorado Springs who welcomed
us and provided us with
strength and guidance during our stay; Nicole and Mike
Denney and Jaquelle and Phil
Riggs who opened their home
to us while we were there.
A very special thank you to
everyone who attended and
took part in the beautiful service celebrating Carmelas
life, especially FR. Mark Filips,
Fr. James Ahaneku, Deacon
Conrad Plante and the congregation of St. Alphonsus
R.C. Church in Minnedosa,
MB. Your support and prayers
will not be forgotten. Many
thanks as well to the staff of
Cappadonas Funeral Home
in Colorado Springs and
Minnedosa Funeral Services
for your sensitivity, professionalism and kindness. The
beautiful music provided
at the church was a perfect
touch to the celebration of
Carmelas life. Although it is
impossible to thank everyone individually, please know
that nothing went unnoticed.
We are forever grateful and
blessed by your expressions of
sympathy and support which
will remain in our hearts always. The Warwaruk, Hamm
and Berube Families. x
Thank you to nurses, staff
and Dr. O. Owojori for the excellent care during my stay in
the Minnedosa Hospital. Harold Stitt. X
Garbutt: I would like to
express my heartfelt thanks
to our sons and their families,
our friends and neighbours
for their inquiries, phone
calls, cards and flowers during my stays in all the hospitals. Special thanks to Dr.
H. Lapierre, my surgeon in
St. Boniface for his great job.
Thanks also to all the Doctors
who cared for me in Brandon
and Minnedosa. To all the
nurses, aides, housekeeping,
dietician and anyone else
I may have missed. Thank
you. Everything went without a hitch. Love Sandra.
P.S. I would like to add my
thanks for Sandras care as
well as the care I received in
Brandon at the same time.
Also for the food I received.
All was much appreciated.
Frank. X

There are not enough


words to express our thanks
to Dr. Khandelwal, the wonderful nurses and staff at the
Minnedosa Hospital for the
exceptional care given to
our dad, Isaac Oakley, during the last weeks of his life.
Thank you to our family and
friends for the phone calls
and visits to us and to dad
while he was in the hospital.
Thank you also to Minnedosa
Funeral Service for the care
and compassion shown to
us at this difficult time. Dad
would be truly happy that he
received the interment that
he requested. Our dad was
a man of few words but his
heart full of love for his family
said it all. Give mom a big kiss
for us. We love and miss you
Dad. Jim and Shelley Oakley
and Family and Michele and
Brian Nicholls and Family.

ISAAC OAKLEY
DECEMBER 28TH, 1922
JANUARY 1ST, 2016
It is with heavy hearts
that we announce the passing
of Isaac Oakley at Minnedosa
Hospital. He was 93 years old.
Isaac was born in Polonia,
MB. On June 9th, 1949, he married the love of his life, Florence,
in Elphinstone, MB. Isaac and
Florences first home together,
which was built by Isaac himself, was located in Clanwilliam.
The couple lived there for a year
before moving to Minnedosa, where they
expanded their family by bringing a son and daughter into the
world. Isaac and Florence resided in Minnedosa for the remainder of their lives.
Isaac was a kind, generous, patient, and happy man. He was
a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, son,
brother, and friend. Isaac loved his family, building things with
his hands, going for walks, listening to and telling stories, and
tracking the movements of deer from his kitchen window. Isaac
loved nature and you could always find him outdoors with a cap
on his head and a smile on his face. Above all, Isaac loved holding hands with his sweetheart no matter the time or place. He
and Florence lived a life overflowing with love for each other.
His loving wife, Florence, preceded Isaac in death on
January 1st, 2013. He was predeceased by his parents, George
and Anna; Brothers: Tony, Lou, Frank, and George; Sister: Rose.
Isaac leaves to cherish his memory and mourn his passing his son, Jim (Shelley), and daughter, Michele (Brian)
Nicholls. Also left to mourn are grandchildren Shaun (Dana),
Meigan, Darin (Sara); Daniel (Natalie) Nicholls, Jayme
(Rob) Haver; Brendon (Kate) Todd, Kerry (Peter) Todd,
Courtney (Matt) Collins. Great grandchildren Adynn,
Rylan; Alison, Wendy, Sarah, and Diana. Brothers Pete and
Benny, numerous nieces and nephews, and countless friends.
A private viewing was held Monday, January 4th, 2016 at
Minnedosa Funeral Service Chapel. A private interment was
held Tuesday, January 5th, 2016 at Minnedosa Cemetery. Urn
bearer was Jim Oakley.
Minnedosa Funeral Service was in care of arrangements.
Donations in Isaacs memory may be made to Cancer Care
Manitoba.
Rest in peace, Dad, reunited with your soulmate for all eternity. We love you forever. (x)

that is more focused on
your favourite cuisines.
For example, someone
who loves Italian and
Greek cuisine would stock
their pantry with varying
types of olives, capers,
tomatoes, grape leaves,
olive oils, balsamic vinegars, etc. The refrigerator and freezer can also be
co-ordinated to contain
the perishables of the

same cuisine. Motivation


to focus more on cooking
certain cuisines in your
household will start with
having the ingredients at
your fi ngertips. One can
even take this to the extreme in organization by
creating labels and segregating areas in your
pantry for different food
groupings.
The simplest of all culinary resolutions however, would be to blow dust
off your cookbooks and
start making some new
dishes. Whether it is of
small or large proportions,
we all have collections of
cookbooks... with many of

them going unused. Make


it a goal in your home to
open up a cookbook once
or twice a week, and try a
new recipe. If you choose
to do this, make sure you
are setting yourself up for
success.
Decide on and investigate the recipe prior
to the date you plan on
making it. Purchase the
ingredients ahead of time,
and ensure that you have
the basic equipment and
utensils necessary to successfully complete the
task at hand. This will help
eliminate any stress that
you may encounter during
preparation.

Attitude is everything. This is the best advice I can give you. Whatever you approach in life,
from making a resolution,
making new friends or
making a new recipe, proceed in a positive fashion.
You will always find what
you are searching for. If
you look for the positives
in something or someone,
you will always find them.
The same applies if you
are seeking out negatives.
Be aware of what you are
looking for and your experience will always be more
rewarding.

n Friday, December 18th the Toddler


Skate program wrapped
up. There were 16 kids registered in the program and
they all had a lot of fun.
Volunteer instructors
Elisha McLean and Jami
Pollon enjoyed working
with the kids and said it
was a bit more challenging
than they had anticipated
with the kids at different
levels, but all the parents
were great and everyone
helped each other. They
thought of fun games to
play with the children to
keep the ice time exciting

and all the young participants received a certificate


and a hot chocolate on the
last day from the Rec Office.
