Sizable Housing Investment


$4.5 Million for Minnedosa
Community Housing Project

Photo by Jennifer Paige

By JENNIFER PAIGE

s Town Council moves forward in securing a debenture for a new recreational centre in Minnedosa,
some are still wondering what is wrong with the one we
have or why cant alterations be made to the existing arena?
For those who spend time in the current arena or
lace up their skates regularly, these questions are blaringly obvious.
The shell that is the Minnedosa Arena was originally
built as a hanger during World War II. Following the conclusion of the war, the hanger was divided and sold off for
other use.
Minnedosa obtained half of the hanger shell in 1947
and created an arena for the community. The other half
of the hanger shell was relocated to Portage and also used
as a recreational building.
The building in Portage was moved and rebuilt in
1967 and then underwent extensive renovation in the
1980s, at which point it became the Portage Centennial
Arena. Portage later took the building out of service in
2010.

Work is continuing to
move forward on the
15-home development in
the southwest corner of
Minnedosa known
as West View Estates.
The Province recently
announced an
investment of $4.5
Million for the much
anticipated project.

Current Aging Arena Simply Worn Out


Continued
from Page 1
Conversely, Minnedosas arena continues to
sit where it was originally
placed with very few alterations completed over the
course of its 60 plus years
in operation.
Times have changed,
what was acceptable 30
years ago is now not. People now have different
expectations when they
come to a facility. Managing an aged facility to
modern-day standards is
definitely a challenge, explained Dan Bailey, Facility Manager.
According to Bailey,
who has over 15 years experience managing recreational facilities, including
a number of years at the
Keystone Centre in Brandon, the rinks boarding
does not have properly
contoured corners, which
causes a number of issues
when cleaning and servicing the ice.
In the arenas initial

years the ice surface had


been serviced using a walkbehind flood tank that was
later upgraded to a rear
mount tractor surfacer.
The tractor was then replaced with a small Olympia resurfacer and now, ice
treatment is completed using a zamboni resurfacer.
Throughout the evolution
of equipment, the boarding and utility room has
remained unchanged.
This rink was originally made to be serviced
by a tractor and so using
our more up-to-date machines becomes an issue.
The boarding has certainly
lasted a long time and has
taken a pounding over the
years. These boards are
made out of plywood and
were upgraded thirty years
ago when they were recovered, so there is only so
much you can expect from
a structure like that, continued Bailey.
Though the arena is
owned by the Town of
Minnedosa, building operations are the respon-

sibility of the Minnedosa renovations, including the

In 2009, the MREC


committee was incorporated. By 2010, stakeholder
consultations, design development, building program and conception designs were completed.
2013 saw Jack Harper
and Associates contracted to prepare a feasibility study on the project,
where Harper verified that
the existing facility cannot
be retrofitted to meet the
need.
Minnedosas population reached 2,598 in 2013
and including nearby communities, the Minnedosa
Arena currently offers regional services to nearly
9,000 individuals.
As council continues
to wade through the paperwork and financial aspects
of the proposed arena, the
residents of Minnedosa
have been asked to take
into consideration what a
recreational facility does
for the community and
back the decision makers
as they move forward in
securing a safe and manageable facility.
We
are
working
through the process of acquiring the funds for the
building and will be holding a public hearing regarding the debenture for the
MREC on January 26th. The
public hearing will consist
of Town Council and a few
members from the MREC
building committee, explained Minnedosa Mayor,
Ray Orr.
Following the public
hearing, the debenture
application will progress
to the municipal board
who will then decide

NOTICE OF MEETING
Yellowhead Regional Employment
Skills and Services Inc.
(YRESS) will hold its

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING on


WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 28TH, 2015 AT 5:00 P.M.
The meeting will be held at the YRESS office located at 133 Main Street
S., Minnedosa.
Members of the organization will be receiving the annual report and
financial statements for the year ended August 31, 2014 and electing
directors.
If you are a resident of the R.M.of Oakview (former R.M.s of

whether or not they will


pursue a public hearing of
their own.
We are hopeful to
have a good turnout for
the public hearing and
that residents will come
out to both support the
project and to address
any questions or concerns they might have,
continued Orr.
As the debenture process moves along, Bailey
along with MMAA members persist with keeping
the current structure safe
and functional.
When I am servicing the ice I always have
a good look for any issues and fix what I can but
there are things that are
getting to the point where
they arent fixable anymore. The boarding is in
very poor condition. If we
were to start replacing everything, it would become
too costly. All we can do
is continue to patch and
hope that it holds so that
the rink can stay in use
until the MREC is ready,
added Bailey.
A major question on
the minds of MMAA members and others is who will
be responsible for looking
after the new facility once
it has been established?
There have been no
decisions yet on how the
building will be run once
it is functional but this is
certainly something that
we are looking at. We have
been in discussion with
Jack Harper for his advice on the issue as he has
quite a bit of experience in
the area, explained Orr.
Town Council has
also discussed the possibility of having a manager
for the entire grounds of
the MREC site as there
are a number of different groups operating in
close proximity and council foresees that they will
need to be co-ordinated.
We know that the
building and site will be
run differently than it is
now. The MMAA has certainly done a good job
in operating the current
arena but we feel that the
Town will need to be more
involved with the new site.
As this project progresses
we will certainly look at
making some concrete
decisions in that regard,
concluded Orr.

$4.5 Million for West View Estates


By JENNIFER PAIGE

he Government of
Manitoba recently announced its commitment
to Minnedosas affordable
housing project, dedicating
a $4.5 million investment
into the development of 15
new homes.
Every family needs
a home where they can
raise healthy children and
put down roots in a thriving neighbourhood, said
Kerri Irvin-Ross, Minister
of Housing and Community Development. We are
committed to helping lowto moderate-income Manitobans in the Minnedosa

area access safe, affordable


housing in their own communities.
With a growing need
for affordable homes in the
community, the Minnedosa Community Housing Association began planning a
residential housing development, utilizing vacant
land owned by the Town.
Since 2010, the Town of
Minnedosa has been working with the MCHA toward
the creation of this site and
after an extensive application process, Minnedosa
was selected as one-of-five
projects out of 50 applicants to receive provincial
funding.

Palaschuck
Returns to Court
By JENNIFER PAIGE

he individual who has been charged in relation to


a local mans death will appear in Minnedosa court
next week.
The legal proceedings in relation to the tragic incident that claimed the life of Shawn Cooper on the final
night of Minnedosas Rockin the Fields music festival
will move forward in court next week.
Christopher Palaschuk, 39, is scheduled to appear
in Minnedosa Court on Tuesday, January 20th, where
he will respond to the charges of two counts of impaired
driving causing bodily harm, impaired driving causing
death and two counts of failing to stop at the scene of an
accident.
In the early morning hours of August 4th, 2014, following the final evening of Minnedosas Rockin the
Fields music festival, Palaschuk allegedly drove off the
festival site where he collided with three pedestrians who
were walking on the shoulder of Beach Road, just outside
the gates of RFM. The collisions resulted in the death of a
young Minnedosa resident.
In August, Palaschuk was granted bail and released
to Calgary, AB under a number of conditions.

This development will benefit not


only area families but it also
strengthens the entire community
Kerri Irvin-Ross,
Housing Minister
We are pleased to
partner with the Manitoba
Government and the Town
of Minnedosa to create
more quality, affordable
housing and are looking
forward to completing this
major project, said Harvey
Wedgewood, chair, MCHA.
We are excited about creating this new affordable
housing community.
Construction at the
site, which has been named
West View Estates, began
mid-2014 in the southwest
corner of town on the undeveloped property between 6th and 7th Avenue,
west of 4th Street S.W.
Housing has been
our number one priority for some time and we
congratulate the Manitoba
Government for initiating
this program. We are very
pleased to be selected, said
Mayor Ray Orr, Town of
Minnedosa. The support
will provide many benefits
to our community and will
give families an opportunity to live in affordable,
modern homes. We look
forward to working with the
Manitoba Government in

the future.
The
development
will include the creation
of three new residential
baysSpruce, Aspen and
Birch, which will be accessed from a new road,
West View Drive.
The 15 homes will be
family-style
bungalows
that will include a treed
yard and a small patio. Rent
rates will be set at affordable levels and will include
utilities.
As part of the agreement, the Town of
Minnedosa has been responsible for clearing the
land and providing service lines up to the property lines, a contribution of
$380,000 as well as $50,000
in land value.
This
development
will benefit not only
area families, but it also
strengthens the entire
community through new
infrastructure, said Minister Irvin-Ross. We have
been making progress on
a Budget 2014 promise for
another 500 affordable and
500 social housing units in
the next three years.

DARRYL A.HOLYK - PUBLISHER AND EDITOR

No Special Talent
By JENNIFER PAIGE

began writing for The Minnedosa Tribune in August


of 2013. My fi rst weekend as the resident reporter
was spent covering Rockin the Fields, which couldnt
have been a better way to kick-start my experience.
I have often been asked why I pursued a career in
journalism. For many it is having the opportunity to advance to a major news organization, cover top stories
and breaking national news. While this does sound like
an exciting endeavor, it is not the reason that I became
a journalist.
For me it was the ability to meet people, hear their
stories, and have a free pass to ask those questions everyone wants to know but are reluctant to ask due to
social courtesy.
In this role, I have been privileged to attend a variety of diff erent events I would otherwise never be
involved in, learn about any and everything and hear
personal stories of inspiring individuals who live right
in my backyard.

The words penned by Albert Einstein have always


rung true to me, I have no special talents, I am only
passionately curious. Journalism has been a route to
satisfy my curiosity.
Recently, I was presented with an opportunity that
I could not pass up and as such it is with a heavy heart
that I say farewell to The Tribune.
Throughout my time in this position, I have met
countless people taking on endless volunteer roles,
overcoming incredible obstacles and marking impressive milestones.
This town has an extraordinarily big heart and it
has been a pleasure being the communitys story teller
for the past while. I would personally like to thank everyone who I have been fortunate to interview or meet
with throughout my time in this position.
Moving forward, I will be taking on a new challenge
in my career as I move into the role of reporter with The
Manitoba Co-operator. I would like to wish Ashley good
luck in her new position and expect she will receive the
same warm welcome I did not so long ago.

Meet Our New Reporter, Ashley


at which time I decided that I
missed my home and my family and moved back to Brandon.
I have had wonderful opportunities to work in administrative and customer service
oriented positions, as well as
stay at home with my wonderful children, but always felt that
something was missing. I was
then lucky enough to come
across The Tribune.
I cant wait to fully immerse
myself in this new adventure
and hope that you are all willing to help me along the way as
I get to know names and faces
along with the town. Photography and journalism are my
passion and my hope is to display that by bringing you the
stories and news that you, the
readers, want to know!

By ASHLEY HANKS

or only being at The Tribune


for one day, I am excited and
eager about this new found journey that I am about to embark
on! I look forward to getting to
know the people and places of
Minnedosa and what you all have
to offer, but for now I will tell you
a little about myself so you can get
to know me.
I grew up in Brandon, MB
where I spent my winters trying
to stay warm and my summers
on Minnedosa Beach with family and friends. In high school I
took photography and journalism
which sparked a major interest in
wanting to work in the reporting
industry. After graduation, I spent
time travelling and living in bigger
cities such as Regina and Calgary

Shuttleworth/Dornn Land
Purchased for Conservation
SUBMITTED
My father would be
delighted to know that the
land he farmed and loved
was to become one of
Ducks Unlimiteds newest
conservation projects.
Elaine Dornn, daughter of long time Minnedosa
area resident and MLA
Charles Lem Shuttleworth, was pleased to hear
that Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) had successfully completed the purchase
of a quarter section of land
that was once part of the
Shuttleworth family farm.
The land has been in
our family for as long as I
can remember, certainly
since before I was born,
and Im thrilled to know
that it will remain intact as
valuable wildlife habitat for
years to come, says Dornn.
My dad was always a big
supporter of DUC.
Shuttleworth actively
worked the family farm
just southeast of Minnedosa until his election to the
Manitoba Legislature in
1949. There he served as a
Liberal-Progressive member for 10 years. Following
his time in public office, he
became the first chairman
of the Canadian International Grain Institute, and
was inducted in the Manitoba Agricultural Hall of
Fame in 1996.
The land had always
been in grass as I recall, and
over the years we rented it
to neighbours to pasture
their cattle, says Dornn.
I can remember being
on horseback as a young
farm girl, rounding up the
cattle and herding them
into a corner of the pasture
for their owners to tend. I
loved it.

One of the most interesting aspects of this property is the complete lack of
wetland drainage and degradation, says Mark Francis, Head of Conservation
Programs for Ducks Unlimited Canada in Brandon.
Mr. Shuttleworth and
his family must have had a
strong conservation ethic
to have resisted the temptation to drain at least a
few of those basins over
the years, says Francis.
Its fantastic to see all 46
ponds still performing as
nature designed, producing a variety of ecological
services for Manitoba.
Francis says that when
DUC acquires land in the
Prairie Pothole Region,
they typically need to plug
ditches and drains in order
to recover or restore wetlands that were lost or degraded. But in this case, it
will only require managing
the property to ensure it
continues to provide those
important services.
The property includes
49 acres of wetlands, as
well as 22 acres of original
native prairie uplands and
89 acres of cropland.
We plan to convert
the cropland to grasses,
more typical of the area
pre-settlement, says Fran-

cis. Then we will manage
the entire upland component every three to four
years through a combination of grazing and haying,
possibly followed up by
burning.
Francis says that this
regime will ensure a strong
and vigorous stand, suitable for nesting waterfowl
and other wildlife. Areas
of undisturbed grass cover
are vital to upland nesting ducks, such as mallards and blue-winged
teal, to successfully hide
their nests from predators.
Careful grass management
will also ensure consistent
value to cattle producers
as they are invited to hay
or graze the property during those management
windows.
Funding to acquire
these projects comes from
a variety of sources, says
Francis. The Ducks Unlimited family is ground
zero. The funds we raise
at grassroots events across
Manitoba and the United

States leverage matching


funds from a number of
state governments.
Th ose amounts are
then matched by the US
Fish and Wildlife Service
under the North American
Waterfowl Management
Plan, and also leverage
funding from the Government of Canada under the
federal Natural Areas Conservation Program.
Francis says there are
many partners involved
in these projects, all seeking specific outcomes such
as increased biodiversity, mitigation of climate
change through storage of
carbon, filtration of harmful nutrients and pesticides, and enhanced waterfowl production.
This will be an outstanding legacy to my father and our family, says
Dornn. Dad was always
very much in tune with nature, and it is wonderful to
know that the land will continue to be well cared for.

Great Crowds at Tournament of Champions


By JENNIFER PAIGE

he ice at the Minnedosa Arena was full of action and


the bleachers were fi lled with spectators this past
weekend as Minnedosa Minor Hockey hosted its 28th
annual Peewee Tournament of Champions.
Sponsored by the Minnedosa Credit Union, the tournament saw over 180 players take to the ice on January
8th to 11th in hopes of claiming the championship title.
We had lots of great hockey played. Th ere were lots
of close games with good competition throughout the
weekend. It was great to see players, teams and families
creating memories that will last a lifetime, commented
Wes Barrett, co-event co-ordinator.
Twelve peewee teams competed including,
Minnedosa, Dauphin, Rivers, Killarney, Carberry, Swan
Valley, Carman, Wawanesa, Neepawa, Russell, Souris
and Gladstone.
The Souris Elks defeated the Killarney Stars in the
tournament fi nal, 4-1. Souris will now move on to the
Brandon Tournament of Champions scheduled for February.
This years tournament featured no misconducts,
no player, parent or coach ejections. I have been involved
in tournaments like this for ten years and have never experienced that. Well done managers, coaches, parents
and players in displaying such excellent sportsmanship
while competing hard, added Barrett.

innedosa was represented very well


by their Bantams this past
weekend of January 8th
to 11th as they participated in the Tournament of

The team opened up their
weekend on Friday, January 9th with a win over

would be the difference in

The two wins placed
The Bombers fi rst in their
pool which gave them a
match-up in the quarter-fi nals with the host
team Souris later in the
afternoon on Saturday.
Minnedosa was off to a
quick start scoring within
the first two minutes of the
game and held a 4-1 lead
going into the final 20 minutes. Souris pushed hard
with a couple goals early
in the third but The Bombers pushed back with three
more of their own taking
a 7-3 win which advanced

them to the semi-finals

A close semi-fi nal on
Sunday afternoon turned
out to be a very close match
with Minnedosa dominating the play for most of the
game. Despite their strong
play the bounces did not
go their way and they could
not seem to fi nd the back
of the net as they watched
the puck slip past the goal
post or over the cross bar
many times. A screened
shot from just inside the
blue line gave Southwest
a 1-0 lead early in the second period. The Bombers
battled hard for the tying
goal but sadly their tournament came to an end
with Southwest sealing the
game on an empty net goal

with less than a minute to


play. Awesome game between the pipes by Brad
Letain.
Congratulations
to
Zane MacDonald who was
named Top Scorer of the
tournament with 15 points
(7 goals and 8 assists).
Braeden Good placed second with 10 points (4 goals,

Minnedosas 34th Annual Christmas Bird Count


By LINDA BOYS

hey came from near


and far and gathered
on a Minnedosa street
corner before dawn December 28th.
Dressed
warmly and armed with
binoculars, the 12 were
here for the 34th Annual
Christmas Bird count.
Soon the 12 were divided
into five groups and began the day of counting
as many birds as possible. They would continue
with this quest until dark
had descended. Others
participated in the count
by reporting what they
sighted at their feeders.
The Audubon Christmas Bird Count, in its
115th year, is run by the
National Audubon Society in partnership with
Bird Studies Canada.
From December 14th

through January 5th tens


of thousands of volunteers throughout the
Americas take part in
an adventure that has
become a family tradition among generations.
Families and students,
birders and scientists,
armed with binoculars,
bird guides and checklists
go out on an annual mission often before dawn.
Audubon and other organizations use data collected in this longest-running
wildlife census to assess
the health of bird populations and to help guide
conservation action.
Local volunteers covered a 24 kilometre diametre circle surrounding
Minnedosa, identified 29
species and recorded all
birds spotted. Highlights
of this years count was a
lone goose nestled in the

grass along the open water in Minnedosa, whitewinged Crossbills were


observed high in the tops
of spruce trees, small flock
of American Goldfinches
(pictured at right), Bald
Eagle, two Evening Grosbeaks and 14 Dark-eyed
Juncos spread through
the count area. Blackcapped Chickadees, being the most common
bird, was spotted at all
check points. Did you
know the chickadee has
black underwear to
help it stay warm in cold
temperatures?
Erica and her family
provided a comfortable
get- together and delicious food as we compiled our sightings and
enjoyed each others stories and images.

Make Your Own Fabric Softener


Solutions and
Substitutions
By

REENA NERBAS
Dear Reena,
Th ere is a hazy film
that covers the windows
of my car. I have washed
them with window cleaners but the film always
comes back. What can I
use to end this? Jeannine

Dear Jeannine,
Many car experts use
rubbing alcohol to shine
car windows. However,
it is possible that the car
windows are permanently
etched from the heat of
the sun. If after cleaning
the fi lm returns, contact a
professional; the windows
may need replacing.

Hi Reena,
Once

brown

sugar

hardens, is there any way


to restore it back to granular form again? I would
hate to replace it. Sue

Dear Sue,
In order to soften
brown sugar put it in a microwavable container and
place it in the microwave
with a small bowl full of
water beside it. Microwave
for about one minute. If
it is still hard, microwave
for an additional 30 seconds. Repeat until sugar
is soft, being careful not
to burn the sugar.To prevent future hardening the
most common solutions
are storing pieces of bread,
marshmallows or halved
apples with brown sugar.
But the best little gad-

get for softening is a little


piece of moistened clay.
These can be purchased at
most stores where household items are sold.

Hi Reena,
Just reading about the
benefits of honey over sugar. Is there any way to use
honey instead of sugar in a
cookie recipe? Jeb

Hi Jeb,
Foods made with honey result in a moister end
product, therefore deduct
3 tbsp. of liquid from any
recipe. One cup of honey
equals one cup brown or
white granulated sugar.

Dear Reena,
Do you have a recipe
for homemade laundry fabric softener?Th is
would be very much appreciated. Linda

squeeze bottle combine;


half cup of your favourite
hair conditioner with one
cup white vinegar and
one cup hot water. Gently
stir. Add one quarter cup
homemade liquid fabric
softener per wash load.

Dear Reena,
I am inquiring about
how to remove grease on
the vinyl fl oor around my
stove. Jean

Dear Jean,
Into an empty ice
cream bucket pour 1 tbsp.
household ammonia and
one tsp. dish soap (not
dishwasher
detergent).
Fill bucket with hot water.
Scrub fl oor with an abrasive, non-scratching pad.
Rinse with plain water.
Note: Never mix ammonia

Dear Reena,
To remove wax from
gloves, I have had great
success using an iron set
low, to barely melt the
wax. Sandwich the waxy
fabric in paper towel and
dab with the tip of the iron.
The melted wax will be absorbed by the paper towel.
Swap out paper towel often
and work slowly. Kilgore

OBITUARIES
BERNARD STUART MILLER

WENDEL JAMES MISANCHUK

DECEMBER 23RD, 1919


- JANUARY 4TH, 2015

JANUARY 5TH, 1951


- JANUARY 11TH, 2015

Bernard was born in Vista, Manitoba, the third of eight children


to Henry and Eva Miller. He grew up in the Birdtail Valley and
went to the valley school to grade eight. With no more available
education in the valley the next years were spent farming. Bernard
joined the armed forces November 1941 serving overseas in the
transport division returning in August, 1945. In 1947, he met Betty
Emerson at Manhattan Beach Camp and in October 1949 they
were married. They celebrated their 63rd anniversary before Bettys
passing in 2013. They took over the Emerson farm at Hamiota farming
until 1975 when they moved to Minnedosa where Bernard worked as
custodian at Minnedosa Collegiate. In 1992 they moved to their retirement
home in Brandon where they lived until they moved to Victoria Landing in 2009. In 2013, Betty
went to her eternal home and Bernard resided there until his passing.
Bernard is survived by six daughters, Joy McKinnon, Hazel (Chelsea) Schindel, Esther (Don)
Hansen, Eva (John) Irwin, Merrilyn (Mark) Irvine, and Ruth (Rick) Brugger. Bernard delighted in
his fifteen grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. He is also survived by one sister Marion
(John) Galvin and one brother Gervin (Caroline) Miller.
Many thanks to the wonderful staff and residents at Victoria Landing and the amazing staff
on 3rd floor palliative, Assiniboine Centre. Special thanks to Camelot Care for five years of
exceptional care to both Betty and Bernard. His last days there were filled with hymns, scripture,
laughter and love shared with many family and friends. Funeral Service took place at Bethel
Christian Assembly on Sunday, January 11th, 2015. Pastor Mike Davis officiated. Interment took
place at Rosewood Memorial Gardens. If friends so desire, donations in memory of Bernard may
be made to The Gideons, 501 Imperial Road North, Guelph, Ontario N1H 7A2. Expressions of
sympathy may be made at www.memorieschapel.com. Arrangements with Memories Chapel &

Ag Report...Cost of Production and Forage Cropping Options


By ELMER KASKIW

any cropping plans


that were made last
fall while harvesting the
2014 crop are now in need
of a 2015 reality check after this winters continued
erosion in commodity
prices.
The recent release of
Crop Production Costs for
2015 are indicating some
very tight and even negative margins for many of
our grains and oilseeds.
In fact, only winter wheat
was able to generate sufficient revenue given long
term average yields and
projected pricing to cover
operating and fixed costs
along with a return to labour.
Canola, fl ax, spring
wheat, oats, soybeans

and fall rye will generally


cover operating but will
come up short to varying
degrees in covering fixed
costs and a return to labour. Barley and field peas
had a difficult time to even
cover operating costs. This
will mean that there will
be very little room for error or mismanagement
during this growing season and little in the way
of cross crop subsidization to support rotational
crops or crops on more
marginal soils that may
have been recently taken
out of forage production.
Producers are advised
to enter in their own costs
and yields which may turn
some of the more marginally negative returns
positive as these costs and
returns are only averages

and estimates based upon


generally accepted agronomic practices and projected prices. These values
will, however, continue to
reinforce the fact that 2015
will be a year of very tight
margins given average
yields.
In fact, this may be
one of those years where
delaying planting decisions or keeping a higher
percentage of flex acres
open may be advisable in
order to take advantage of
some last minute changes
in market conditions. One
of the foundations or keys
to a good marketing strategy begins by growing the
right crop.
One of the cropping
options that often get over
looked is that of growing forages especially on

Italian Sausage and Gnocchi Soup


Cooking With
CHEF DEZ

ne of the best things


about Italian cuisine
can be its simplicity, and
one of the best things about
winter is eating soup. One
of the commonly asked
questions directed to me is
for easy, fast, and delicious
soup recipes. This is the one
I recommend all the time.
Th is soup is hearty
and because it is loaded
with Italian sausage, gnocchi pasta, tomatoes, garlic,
and incredible cheese it is
everything you would expect from an Italian soup...
but also very quick and
easy to prepare. If you have
never heard of gnocchi
pasta before, dont despair
- vacuum sealed packages
of the small dumpling-like
pasta shapes can be found
at almost all major grocery
stores down the pasta aisle.
Dont underestimate
the choice of the Pecorino
Romano cheese as the
fi nishing garnish for this
soup as it adds incredible
fl avour and compliments
and balances all the other
flavours in this soup beautifully. Large shavings of
this cheese are easily prepared with a simple vegetable peeler - shave it directly onto the individually

bowled soup portions just


prior to serving - this looks
much more rustic and
gourmet than simply grating it, but either way is fine.
If you cant fi nd
Pecorino Romano, a chunk
of Parmigiano Reggiano
will have to suffice.
Italian Sausage
and Gnocchi Soup
500g raw mild Italian
sausage, casings removed
1 tbsp olive oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup finely
chopped onion
1.5 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 - 796ml can of
diced tomatoes
1800ml chicken broth
1 tsp sugar
1 - 500g package of potato
gnocchi pasta
1 packed cup fresh
baby spinach leaves
1/4 cup thinly sliced
fresh basil
Generous amounts of
shaved Pecorino
Romano cheese
1. Add the sausage
meat, olive oil, garlic, onion, salt and pepper to a
large pot. Turn the heat to

medium and cook for approximately fi ve to seven


minutes until the sausage
is cooked through, while
breaking up the sausage
meat with a spoon as it
cooks.
2. Add the can of tomatoes, chicken broth, and
sugar. Increase the heat to
medium high to bring to a
boil. Once boiling, add the
gnocchi and continue to
cook for three minutes.
3. Remove the pot from
the heat. Stir in the spinach
and basil and portion out
immediately;
garnished
with generous amounts of
shaved Pecorino Romano
cheese.
Makes approx. 13 cups.

some of the more sensitive acres that have most


recently been taken out
of forages and put into
annual crop production.
Often the rotational benefi t of forage on these
sensitive soils will mask
the soil limitations in the
short term however the
yield curve will soon turn
downward sharply as the
long term productivity of
these acres becomes evident. Th ese acres were
always better suited to forages due to their inherent
cropping limitations.
Th e loss in forage
acres throughout much of
the eastern prairies and
north eastern states are
likely to continue to create
a demand for forages that
will not be replenished

above average yields that


would rival and perhaps
even surpass the profitability of most grains and
oilseeds.
Local beef hay markets will see more alfalfa/
grass hay blends be utilized where grasses can be
added to address specific
soil limitations. Productivity on these soils maybe
somewhat lower but will
generally produce more
stable, predictable yields
when compared to annual
crop production.
In either situation,
forages may be a cropping
option worth considering
on for the 2015 growing
season.

perhaps now is the time


to once again place these
challenged acres back into
forages.
So what type of forage
would be most suitable?
Th is will depend somewhat on the agronomic
challenges these acres
possess and also in what
forage market you are targeting.
Export hay markets
typically require high percentages of alfalfa in order
to maximize protein and
energy levels. This will
mean that hay for export
production will typically
have to occur on acres
that only have minor limitations to production and
will generally produce

Minnedosa Bracing for Next ER Closure


By JENNIFER PAIGE

innedosa residents will once again be without


emergency room services next week as the local
skeleton doctor staff struggle to cover shifts.
The Minnedosa ER will be closed from Monday,
January 19th to Monday, January 26th due to physician
resource shortages.
It is an unfortunate situation but I would like to acknowledge the hard work of the physicians in maintaining 24/7 service up until this point with only three of them
participating in on-call, commented Prairie Mountain
Health CEO, Penny Gilson.

Residents who are in need of emergency care are


instructed to contact the Minnedosa Health Centre to
determine the nearest open ER and for most emergent
situations, call 911.
In late March of last year, the Minnedosa Medical
Group welcomed Dr. Owojori, who has also been actively
providing both general and emergency care alongside
Dr. Khandelwal and Dr. Onyshko.
Prairie Mountain Health continues to use locum
physicians when necessary and has been depending on
the dedicated staff at both the hospital and clinic to keep
things up and running until relief is obtained.
