A
fter 25 years, fve days of testimony and two hours
of jury deliberation, the man responsible for the
murder of two Minnedosa snow birds has fnally been
sentenced to life in prison.
On Tuesday, February 11th, in the 206th state dis-
trict court in Hidalgo County, Texas, Arturo Almaguer
was found guilty of Capital Murder for the 1988 double
homicide of Evan and Wilda Squires.
Almaguer was sentenced with two consecutive life
sentences, but because the crime was committed in
1988, the court had to oblige the law at the time of the
crime. Terefore, Almaguer will be eligible for parole af-
ter 15 years served.

In present time, if a
person is convicted of
Capital Murder and the
death sentence is not
sought, the crime carries
a mandatory sentence of
life in prison with no pos-
sibility of parole.
In 1988, on the eve-
ning of November 13th,
the Squires were asleep
in their mobile home at
the Magic Valley RV Park
in Weslaco, Texas, where
they had spent many win-
ters escaping the Manito-
ba weather.
Te couple was awo-
ken by intruders who
were attempting to rob
the mobile home. Neigh-
bours heard shots fred
and Evan, 70, and Wilda,
65, were later found and
pronounced dead shortly
after 11:30 p.m.
During the double
murder investigation, fe-
ces were found on a pair of
shorts on the foor of the
room where the two el-
derly were murdered. Te
DNA was turned over to a
crime lab and then added
to a law enforcement da-
tabase, but at the time no
leads were found.
Two decades later, a
man by the name of Ar-
turo Almaguer was ar-
rested in Grand Rapids,
Michigan for an unrelated
charge of robbery. Blood
drawn from the Alma-
guer during the booking
process in 2012 was then
entered into a database
which linked
it to the DNA
found at the
1988 crime
scene.
A l m a -
guer, now 46,
was held in
custody in
Kent County
Jail until ear-
ly November,
2012 where
he was ex-
tradited to
We s l a c o ,
Texas and charged with
Capital Murder. At the
time of the 1988 crime the
accused would have been
21 years of age.
After 25 years of unan-
swered questions, Bill and
Colleen Jury, the son and
daughter-in-law of Wilda
Squires, made their way
down to Hidalgo County
for the long-awaited trial
of the man who murdered
their family members.
I was subpoenaed by
the court and was required
to testify and my wife gave
a victim impact statement
describing how this had
impacted our family. Be-
cause we had to testify,
we had been kept out of
the courtroom for the
initial testimo-
nies as they do
not want them
to impact our
s t a t e me nt s ,
commented Bill
Jury.
Prosecu-
tion of the ac-
cused began on
February 4th
where the jury
heard a num-
ber of testimo-
nies including
Pat Pemelton,
a retired of cer respon-
sible for gathering the
DNA evidence from the
crime scene, as well as
Pemeltons son, Detec-
tive Billy Pemelton who
was responsible for fnally
linking Arturo to the mur-
der in 2012.
Photos were present-
ed to the court which de-
picted that Evan was shot
in the right shoulder with
the bullet exiting his back.
Wilda was shot in the up-
per torso and mid-section
with the bullets also exit-
ing her back. Burn marks
on the victims skin and
clothing indicated to in-
vestigators that the shots
occurred at very close
range.
Witness testimony
from investigators also
described Almaguers
timeline of that night, de-
picting that he and an ac-
complice broke into the
Squires home, ransacked
the residence, collecting
items to steal. Almaguer
then reportedly stopped
in the bathroom at which
time he was confronted
by the Squires who had
been awoken by the dis-
turbance.
Almaguer then shot
both of the victims while
still in the bathroom. Fol-
lowing the gun fre, Al-
maguer continued to def-
ecate in his pants and on
the foor. Evidence pre-
sented at the trial then
showed that he left his
shorts on top of the feces,
took clothing from the
home and used his shirt to
wipe himself of.
In 1988, crime scene
DNA collection was not a
common protocol. How-
ever in this case, detec-
tives collected the fecal
matter and stored it in the
government database.
Te DNA sat for 20
years before being used as
key-evidence in the con-
viction. Prosecutors made
note that bringing a case
to trial after 25 years pres-
ents a number of chal-
lenges, especially because
many key witnesses had
unclear memories of the
events or had died and
without the DNA evidence
a conviction would have
been unlikely.
Court was cancelled
on Wednesday and Turs-
day but we were back in
court on Friday and re-
ceived the jury verdict
on Tuesday, explained
Jury. It was amazing how
quickly the court case has
gone considering it has
taken us 25 years to get
here.
Before the sentence
was read in court, Colleen
Jury was given the oppor-
tunity to read a victim im-
pact statement where she
described how the crime
had afected her and her
family members.
I was the one that re-
ceived the phone call just
after midnight that night,
to be told that they had
been murdered, Colleen
said to the court room.
Af t er wai t i ng 25
years t he f ami l y and
friends of Evan and Wilda
fnally have justice for
their loved ones that were
brutally taken from them
so many years ago.
Weve been waiting
25 years for this. I am very
thankful that the Texas
legal system didnt forget
about us, added Jury.

D
oct or short ages
continue to disturb
Emergency and Acute
Care services at the
Minnedosa hospital.
Prai ri e Mount ai n
Health announced earlier
this week that local servic-
es will be suspended on
weekends throughout the
month of February and
until further notice.
We have one physi-
cian that will be away and
not able to participate
in the on-call schedule,
therefore the facility was
down to two doctors trying
to cover the call schedule.
Tat just isnt suf cient for
the health and safety of
the patients and unreal-
istic for two physicians to
cover that amount of time.
We are looking at week-
end suspensions until we
have added resources in
Minnedosa, explained
Penny Gilson, CEO of
Prairie Mountain Health
Authority.
Beginning Saturday,
February 15th and con-
tinuing until further no-
tice there will be no emer-
gency room or acute care
service at the Minnedosa
Health Centre on week-
ends from Saturdays at 8
a.m. to Mondays at 8 a.m.
Minnedosa physicians
will be working to con-
tinue to keep the ER doors
open through the remain-
der of the week.
Tere has been a
change since we sent out
the notif cation to the
community; we were able
to cover services for the
weekend of February 7th.
Te f rst weekend with
suspended services will
be February 14th, noted
Gilson.
Pr ai r i e Mount ai n
Health is continuing to
work with the local Medi-
cal Clinic in an attempt to
secure physician locums
for the weekends.
It is not a happy situ-
ation at all, but they are
trying to deal with it as
best they can and we are
trying to deal with it as
best we can as well, said
Ray Orr, Minnedosa May-
or. We have met with the
Health Authority and are
staying on top of the situ-
ation.
In the meantime, in-
dividuals seeking health
care advice are asked to
utilize Manitoba Health
Links a 24-hour, 7 days a
week telephone informa-
tion service where a reg-
istered nurse can provide
answers and guidance
over the phone.
Those requiring
non-emergent, acute
care are asked to call the
Minnedosa Health Centre
at 204-867-2701 to deter-
mine the nearest open ER
department.
For emergent situa-
tions, call 911. You will
be transported by Prairie
Mountain Health EMS to
the nearest open ER de-
partment. As noted in the
previous article, ambu-
lance services in Mani-
toba are not insured and
transportation will come
with a cost. However, the
rate is a flat fee and dis-
tance travelled does not
impact the cost.
Local hospital staff,
that does not wish to be
named, notes that ER and
acute care service clo-
sures are also especially
taxing on the hospital
support staff as they are
required to close down
and send acute care pa-
tients off to other facili-
ties every week.
Minnedosa is not the
only community in the
Prairie Mountain Health
facing closures due to
the lack of personnel, a
number of others are also
struggling to keep their
doors open.
A few communities
in the Authority are cur-
rently experiencing tem-
porary suspensions of
service as a result of lim-
ited physician resources.
We also continue to see
resource challenges in
nursing, EMS and therapy
services as well. How-
ever, we are continuing
to work with providers
and local stakeholders
on strategies to address
these shortages while en-
suring quality and safety
of patient care, added
Gilson.
Struggling to Keep the Doors Open
Local ER service suspension

T
he MREC building committee and Minnedosa
Town Council continue to move forward with
the planning and consideration of a new recreational
facility for Minnedosa and surrounding communi-
ties. While the new plans are far from complete, the
committee is certain the creation of a new building is
necessary.
Te building committee has of cially obtained
the services of Jack Harper and Associates, the frm
responsible for conducting the recent feasibility re-
port, to assist in planning the new facility.
We have had an initial meeting with Jack Harper
and he is now going to be meeting with various user
groups to determine what the community needs.
Tere is clearly a need for a new building, but he will
work to determine the amenities that the town needs
and then begin to determine how much it will cost,
explained Minnedosa Mayor, Ray Orr.
According to Orr, current plans for the recre-
ational facility include creation of a new building
in the originally planned location at the towns fair-
grounds.
We are not planning to use the old building. It
has been there for 65 years and has served us well up
until this point, but in order to bring it up to code it
would be a lot of money and its longevity would not
be suf cient, continued Orr.
Te building committee hopes to create a facil-
ity that encompasses the ability to meet the commu-
nitys needs for the next 50 to 60 years.
Jack Harper is on board and he will be looking
at a number of factors before we begin to make new
plans. It will take a few months to determine what the
plans will actually look like, but he will be working
cooperatively with the building committee through-
out this process, added Orr.

DARRYL A.HOLYK - PUBLISHER AND EDITOR

Dear Editor,
I
n the January 24th edi-
tion of Te Tribune May-
or Orr states We will also
be discussing how we will
include the public in this
matter whether we coordi-
nate a public consultation
or simply include them in our committee meetings
regarding moving MREC forward. Simply including
the public in committee meetings is NOT an accept-
able solution and heres why.
A public consultation is one where reasonable ef-
fort has been made to notify those interested of its oc-
currence. In Minnedosa, the pages of Te Tribune are
the place for public notice where the publics input, a
hearing, is appropriate. To the best of my knowledge
only one public consultation regarding MREC has ever
taken place. While all council and council commit-
tee meetings are technically public, having notice of
any kind was unique to council meetings and MRECs
fundraising Committee meetings until last week. Te
frst posted agenda for a standing committee of coun-
cil was posted on the town website last Friday. Gener-
ally speaking the public has no input in any council
or committee meeting unless theres a public hearing
within it or theyre part of a delegation.
MRECs public consultation occurred on Decem-
ber 9th, 2008. During that meeting, all but one of ap-
proximately 80 in attendance raised their hand in
support on a new arena/
hotel event centre mov-
ing forward. Te election
of Mayor Orr in 2010 was
a further public endorse-
ment of MREC. Te 8 to 12
million dollar idea of MREC
promoted at the time of the
election was not the colos-
sal goose egg it became. MREC truly hatched during
the tenure of current council. All public endorsements
to date have been for a hotel/arena. Two hotel feasibili-
ty studies have been commissioned by the Town. Teir
fndings were withheld from the public. Te MREC
feasibility study states, a hotel study (PKF, 2011) con-
cluded that even with an event centre there was a mar-
ginal market to support the development of a hotel at
this time. So now we know a hotel isnt really feasible
either. Given all the wasted funds, lost time, and still
promoted false premise of a hotel the public should be
consulted in a community meeting, otherwise council
should hold of on moving forward and wait til the
next election in October. Logically there is signifcant
public support and momentum for a new Arena. None-
theless, Council should consult the publics opinion in
full acknowledgement of the new realities and assume
some accountability as to whats happened so far.
Robert Marks and Herman Klassen,
Minnedosa, MB
Hold of until the next election
2004 Te Minnedosa Lions Club has committed
$10,000 to the Minnedosa Community Child Care Co-
operative. Te f rst $5,000 installment was presented last
week with the remaining payment scheduled for 2005.
1994 Minnedosas share of profts from the 1992 Sum-
mer Games will be distributed as follows: $4,500 to the
Arena, $1,500 to Minor Baseball, $2,500 to the Golf Club
and $875 to the Rec Commission.
1984 Te Minnedosa Agricultural Society will receive
$90,000 from Destination Manitoba for upgrades to its
existing facilities and increase seating capacity for its an-
nual fair, rodeo and harness racing.
1974 A local resident was shocked when he received his
last hydro bill for $36.00. Tis was a substantial increase
over the $7.00 to $9.00 bills he has been paying since June
1966. He was even more shocked when he contacted the
hydro of ce and learned that he owed over $1,000.00 in
arrears dating back eight years.
1964 A new addition to the Farmers Festival this sum-
mer will be a few hours of fun and frolic being called Te
Farmers Funfest. Some of the items being considered for
the funfest include a greased pig contest, pie eating con-
test, egg throwing contest, knobbly knees contest, crawl-
ing races and many other fun-provoking events.
1944 A record month of mild weather for January.
Average temperature was recorded at 15.47 degrees, the
highest ever since the meteorological station began keep-
ing records in 1880. Twice during the month the tempera-
ture soared above 42 degrees.
1904 Te local dog poisoner is at work again and T.H.
Taylor is the latest to sufer the loss of a dog.
1884 Te curlers in the town have cleared a space on
the river so that they can practice.
Town cows are more ravenous than ever this year,
and a handful of hay is not to be found anywhere.

A
s a result of the pass-
ing of Bill 33 Te
Municipal Modernization
Act, the R.M. of Harrison
and the R.M. of Park in-
tend to amalgamate like
many other communities
throughout Manitoba.
Last week, the two com-
munities held meetings
in order to fnalize their
amalgamation plans.
In Onanole on Tues-
day, January 28th, 43
residents gathered at the
local recreation centre to
discuss and work out the
details of the two commu-
nities coming together.
On Wednesday, Janu-
ary 29th, 58 residents from
the R.M. of Harrison also
gathered at the Sandy
Lake Community Hall in
order to review the amal-
gamation process and
proposed plan.
Most who attended
the meetings were posi-
tive about the process.
I think that people have
realized that this is go-
ing to happen whether
or not they are in agree-
ment with it and are now
focusing on the process of
how to get this done, said
Chad Davies, current chief
administrative of cer with
the R.M. of Park.
Both the councils held
these meetings in order to
consult with community
members as they felt it
was an important compo-
nent of the decision mak-
ing process.
We have concluded
that our new area name
will be the Municipality of
Harrison-Park. Tere will
be six councilors elected,
three each to represent
each R.M. and one Reeve
at large, added Davies.
Te two R.M.s are
now prepared to fle an
amalgamation plan with
the Minister, which will
come into efect on Janu-
ary 1st, 2015.
Once amalgamated
the R.M.s main of ce will
be located in Onanole
with a satellite of ce in
Newdale.
Coming to an
Amalgamation Conclusion

M
any cropping plans
that were deter-
mined last fall while har-
vesting the 2013 crop are
now in need of a 2014 re-
ality check after this win-
ters combined plunge in
commodity prices and
increase in input prices.
Of particular concern are
those sensitive acres that
have most recently been
taken out of forages and
put into annual crop pro-
duction. Often the rota-
tional beneft of the forage
in the rotation will mask
the reduced productiv-
ity of these soils however
the yield curve will soon
turn downward sharply as
the long term productiv-
ity of these acres becomes
evident. Tese acres were
always better suited to for-
ages due to their inherent
cropping limitations. Te
loss in forage acres com-
bined with a severe win-
ter in much of central and
eastern US will most likely
create a demand for forag-
es that will not be replen-
ished quickly suggesting
that perhaps now is the
time to once again place
these challenged acres
back into forages.
So what type of forage
would be most suitable?
Tis will depend some-
what on the agronomic
challenges these acres
possess and also in what
forage market you are tar-
geting. Export hay mar-
kets typically require high
percentages of alfalfa in
order to maximize protein
and energy levels. Tis will
mean that hay for export
production will typically
have to occur on acres that
only have minor limita-
tions to production. Local
beef hay markets will see
more of the alfalfa/grass
hay mix blends be utilized
with either Meadow or
Smooth Brome depend-
ing on whether re-growth
is grazed or hayed. As
limitations increase and
if salinity is present then
brome can be decreased
with Tall Fescue being
added depending on the
severity. If land is prone to
temporary fooding then
brome can be decreased
and Timothy can be added
and Creeping Red Fescue
included. If soils are light
and prone to drought con-
ditions then brome can
be decreased and Crested
Wheat Grass can be add-
ed. Some growers have
also had good success in
replacing some brome
with Intermediate Wheat
Grass in that it yields simi-
lar to brome but seems to
dry down and even out
bale moisture better then
brome.
Fertilizing Forage Stands
Forage stands at es-
tablishment with a high
percentage of alfalfa will
require no nitrogen and
somewhere between 50-
70 pounds of phosphate
and approximately 30
pounds of sulphur. Coarse
soils may also require po-
tassium at 45-90 pounds
per acre. If the stand is
predominantly grass and
there is a low percent-
age of alfalfa then 40-60
pounds of nitrogen should
also be applied.
In order to take a more
immediate advantage of
the increase in hay prices
one can also fertilize es-
tablished forage stands.
Established stands with a
high percentage of alfalfa
will require between 20-30
lbs per acre of phosphate,
15 lbs of sulphur and if
coarse soils are present
somewhere between 30-
60 lbs of potash. Again if
the stand is predominant-
ly grass and little alfalfa
then somewhere between
40-60 pounds of nitrogen
should also be applied.

n January 4th the Er-
ickson 4-H Beef Club
held our annual Christ-
mas party at the Brandon
Sportsplex. We started by
sledding on the toboggan
hill, but it was too cold
to sled for anymore than
half an hour. We warmed
up by swimming for the
rest of the afternoon.
We then enjoyed pizza,
desserts and drinks and
played board games to
finish our day.
We held our meet-
ing on January 13th at the
Minnedosa GO of ce. For
roll call each member had
to make up a 30 second
speech based on a topic
picked out of a bag.
Plans were made for
our annual Communica-
tions night to be held at
the Erickson Legion. We
discussed our Achieve-
ment Day in June at Erick-
son Fairgrounds, and have
had to change the date.
We made plans to hold the
annual whist card party at
Erickson Crossroads Cen-
tre.
Information about the
South Parklands Over-
night Winter Adventure
was talked about. It is a
weekend of outdoor activ-
ities and camping at Camp
Wannakumbac open to all
4-H members from the en-
tire South Parkland Area.
We ended the meet-
ing by members receiving
their project workbooks.
Erickson 4-H Club Report
By JAMES SHEPPARD
Principal, Tanners
Crossing School
T
he evening of January
21st, 2014, saw the an-
nual Family Fun Night at
TCS take place. Every year
the school staf organize a
number of outdoor activi-
ties, in conjunction with
the Parent Advisory Coun-
cil, to allow students and
their parents to come to
the school and participate
and have some fun!
Tis year was special
in that it marked the of-
f cial opening of the re-
built outdoor rink located
on the west playground
at TCS. A rink has been
in place for a number of
years, but as the previous
version continued to dete-
riorate, parent volunteers
took up the challenge of
organizing a fundraising
and construction cam-
paign that led to an awe-
some facility for students
and the Minnedosa com-
munity to use. Over the
course of the summer and
fall of 2013, the new rink
took shape, due to the
hard work, volunteerism,
and support of many in-
dividuals and businesses.
Te end result is a really
great rink, which is prop-
erly designed and well-
built, ensuring the com-
munity will enjoy it for
years to come.
As a principal, I have
almost gotten used to leav-
ing for summer break in
June, and arriving in Au-
gust to improved school
facilities; be it a new band
room in Rivers, a new can-
teen and Lifeskills facility
in Forrest, or a renovated
Woodworking shop here
at Tanners. Tis rink is
yet another example of
the commitment of the
Minnedosa community to
improving the opportuni-
ties for the young people
who live here. Once again,
when I returned in late
summer to begin prepar-
ing for the 2013-14 school
year, TCS had something
new to of er our stu-
dents. Te rink project is
special in that it involved
a parent group working in
cooperation with the Roll-
ing River School Division
to create something quite
unique.
In addition to the
parent volunteers, a few
groups deserve special
mention. I asked Wes Bar-
rett, who spearheaded the
ef orts of the Minnedosa
PAC, to give me a run-
down:
* PAC for providing
funding and fundraising
for this and other projects.
Also, the PAC Playground
Committee and their fam-
ilies and other community
members for building the
rink.
* Heritage Co-op
Lumber, led by Allan Hall,
for providing us with de-
livery of product as we
required it throughout the
project. Also for giving us
great pricing on the lum-
ber and other supplies
for the rink and giving us
an additional discount of
our bill once the dust all
settled.
* Minnedosa Founda-
tion for giving us a Grant
to cover some of the cost.
* Rolling River School
Division Of ce: Kathy
McNabb and Laura Good
for Project Accounting
and Len Dobreen for guid-
ance and site supervision.
* Chad Burton from
Burton Electrical for do-
nating the labour for the
installation of new lights.
* Town of Minnedosa
Public Works Department,
led by Kevin Marcino for
doing the pre-building
site preparation and for
f ooding and maintain-
ing the ice surface. (I still
remember the frst win-
ter morning when I came
across a Zamboni in the
TCS parking lot! Tere
are a lot of outdoor rinks
across Canada, but very
few can claim this level
of professional mainte-
nance. Once again, the ice
is in great shape.)
*Jim Henry of Jim
Henry Construction who
graciously donated a
week of his crews skills
and talent to lay out the
rink and build the rink
frame. Without this in-
volvement, we would
probably just be looking
at a pile of boards on the
ground, trying to figure
out which end was up.
As Wes mentioned
during the opening cer-
emonies, T is was a
true community project,
with involvement from
PAC, Playground Com-
mittee, local businesses,
School Division, Town of
Minnedosa and Commu-
nity residents.
Once the temperature
fell and the ice was food-
ed, the Town employees
who maintain the surface
deserve our thanks. Tere
is still some work to be
done to the rink in terms
of lighting and benches,
but I would encourage ev-
eryone to come out and
enjoy it! I sincerely hope
that young people using it
also maintain it and care
for it, ensuring its enjoy-
ment for years to come.

T
he Minnedosa Peewee
11 bombers had lots of
good games this year so far.
On January 4th we
won a home game vs the
Brandon Leafs 4-2. On
January 8th we had an
away game vs the Penguins
at the Westman Place in
Brandon. It was really cool
that we got to play on the
big ice. It was a lot more
skating than usual! It was
a close game. We managed
to pull through and win
1-0. Our single goal was
scored by #18, Liam Bach-
ewich.
On January 12th we
lost to the Avalanche 6-4 at
the Optimist Arena. Janu-
ary 19th we had another
game against the Brandon
Avalanche, winning on
home ice 4-1.
Tis past weekend, on
February 1st the Bombers
played against the Bran-
don Leafs. Te Bombers
frst two goals were scored
by Konlyn Nemetchek,
third goal by Seth Guen-
ther and the last three goals
by Kayden Sutherland to
give our team another win,
with a fnal score of 6-2.
On Sunday we had a
home game vs the Bran-
don Penguins. Tis was a
great game for me because
I got to play defense which
is a new position for me.
It was an awesome win
with a fnal score of 5-0 for
the Minnedosa Bombers.
Our goals that game were
scored by Carter Hedley,
Liam Bachewich (2) and
Kayden Sutherland (2).
Tis weekend we have
a tournament in Stone-
wall. Our team is looking
forward to playing against
some diferent teams. Go
Bombers go!

innedosa and sur-
rounding area are
gearing up for a weekend
chalked full of Canadas
favourite sport and one of
the communities favourite
winter eventsSkate the
Lake.
Skate the Lake will be
taking place on Minnedo-
sa ice over the weekend of
February 15th and 16th.
Registration began on Feb-
ruary 1st and organizers
are looking forward to an-
other promising event.
T ere are a large
number of teams from out
of town in both adult and
youth divisions so we take
that as a sign that we are
doing things right if we are
able to attract teams from
outside of Minnedosa. We
are looking forward to a
great winter weekend for
pond hockey on February
15th and 16th, said Tannis
Barrett, event organizer.
T is annual event
started in 2007 and has
been a popular winter ac-
tivity ever since. Tis year
organizers are aiming for
20 mens teams and fve la-
dies teams.
We are thrilled to
have Sims & Co back on-
board to sponsor the
youth divisions and we
have teams in HIP, Novice,
Atom, PeeWee and Ban-
tam youth divisions this
year, added Barrett.
Te non-prof t, volun-
teer run event sees com-
munity members come
together for some 4-on-4
pond hockey action over
the course of the February
long weekend.
Skate the Lake also
serves as a community
fundraiser donating the
proceeds to a local group
every year.
During the 2007,
2008 and 2009 Skate the
Lake events, $8,700 was
raised and donated to the
Minnedosa Child Care Co-
op.
Te 2010, 2011 and
2012 events raised $21,800
which was donated to mi-
nor hockey related proj-
ects at the proposed MREC
facility.
Te Towns mainte-
nance team has been busy
this week preparing the ice
and plan to have a number
of rinks prepared to al-
low multiple games to be
played at a time.
T e Town of
Minnedosa is very sup-
portive of the event and
some of their staf have
been shaping the rinks
and grooming the lake ice
to be ready for the tourna-
ment. And, the Minnedosa
Minor hockey families are
who really make the event
possible with entering
teams and operating the
tournament that Saturday
and Sunday, Barrett con-
tinued.
Sharpen your skates,
grab your winter gear and
head down to the lake next
weekend to take part in
one of Canadas long-time
traditions, a solid game of
pond hockey. Anyone in-
terested in volunteering
or registering for the event
can contact Tannis Barrett
at 204-867-1942 or
tbarrett@rrsd.mb.ca.

A
reminder for those preparing for
tax season this year, there has
been a few changes to the farmland tax
credit rebate.
Manitoba farmers who get rebates
on the education portion of their prop-
erty tax will see a lid placed on those
rebates starting this year.
Finance Minister, Stan Struthers
announced the change in April of 2013
and the changes are expected to save
the province an estimated $6.2 million
in 2013-2014.
Te farmland tax credit rebate was
implemented by the province in 2004
in order to support the rural economy
by providing farmland owners with
school tax relief.
Landowners are required to sub-
mit an application to their local mu-
nicipal of ce or Manitoba Agriculture
Services Corporation of ce by March
31st.
Changes for the 2013
tax season include:
* Commencing with the 2013
property tax year, the rebate will only
be available to owners of eligible farm-
land who are Manitoba residents.
* Fully completed 2013 Farmland
School Tax Rebate application forms
must be received by MASC byMarch
31st, 2014.
* Commencing with the 2013
property tax year, the annual Farmland
School Tax Rebate is limited to $5,000
per taxpayer and any related persons
of that taxpayer (spouses, common law
partners and controlled corporations)
Te response from the public has
been fairly positive. Certainly noth-
ing like what I was expecting, said
Vaughan Boles, farmland school tax
rebate coordinator with Manitoba Ag-
ricultural Services Corporation. We
have done everything that we can to
try and keep people informed of the
changes so that there are no surprises
this tax season.

iosphere reserves have
the capacity to work
with municipalities to
build prosperous, vibrant
and sustainable commu-
nities. Tey provide access
to the United Nations vast
research and project man-
agement resources. Imag-
ine being able to tap into
the knowledge base and
capacity-building power
of 621 biosphere reserves
around the world, 16 of
which are located in Can-
ada.
Tat is the opportunity
that the Riding Mountain
Biosphere Reserve (RMBR)
provides to the 15-member
municipalities that sur-
round RMNP. Biosphere
reserves play a crucial
role in generating knowl-
edge about how natural
systems work and about
how to maintain resilient
ecosystems which contrib-
ute enormously valuable
ecological services, ex-
plained Valerie Pankratz,
RMBR Executive Director.
At the same time these
ecosystems can be used in
sustainable ways to create
income, employment and
wealth.
Since receiving bio-
sphere designation in 1986,
RMBR has been involved
in numerous projects that
cross municipal boundar-
ies to deal with complex
issues like the Bovine Tu-
berculosis (TB). Since 2003,
RMBR has facilitated the
TB Stakeholders Advisory
Committee (TB SAC) which
has been an important link
between cattle produc-
ers, hunters and outftters,
and the government agen-
cies working to eradicate
Bovine TB from the Riding
Mountain region.
Other initiatives in-
clude education programs
in water stewardship like
Living by the Waters
Edge, a how-to manual
for home and cottage own-
ers living along waterways
and lakeshores. RMBR has
also created and curates
the Native Species Garden
at its Erickson of ce which
provides information about
planting and preserving
native species of plants
and trees. It also helps raise
awareness about eforts to
halt the spread of invasive
species.
Growing the local
economy
At the Farm Gate
hosts three markets per
year where producers
and artisans have access
to new customers and an
ever growing legion of loyal
repeat clients. Shopping
locally has multiple ben-
efts: money spent on these
products stays in the re-
gional economy; the craft-
speople and farmers access
new markets and revenue;
and it provides a boost to
the areas tourism sector.
Caching Riding Moun-
tain is another sustainable
tourism initiative piloted
by RMBR. Tis annual GPS
adventure quest sends par-
ticipants on a 24-hour tour
of the biosphere. Working
with local partners, RMBR
organizes stops at a vari-
ety of local attractions that
visitors might not normally
discover on their own, thus
promoting the cultural re-
sources and natural beauty
of the area.
Scientifc research
is another component of
the biospheres mandate.
RMBR has helped facilitate
numerous research proj-
ects including an elk move-
ment study, as well as the
introduction of innovative
beaver removal techniques.
Tey are also participating
in projects looking at the ef-
fects of climate change, and
invasive species.
Looking to the future
After nearly three de-
cades, RMBRs future is be-
ing threatened by a funding
shortfall. Te post-reces-
sion economic reality has
meant that environmental
non-governmental organi-
zations (ENGOs) are hav-
ing to reinvent themselves
in order to remain vital and
efective.
Since Environment
Canadas funding agree-
ment to biosphere reserves
was cut in 2012, RMBR has
been looking for alterna-
tive revenue sources. A
partial solution has been
found through a contribu-
tion agreement with Parks
Canada. Tey have agreed
to pay some of the cost of
a fund development plan
whose goal is to make the
Biosphere Reserve self-
suf cient. Tis study and
plan were well underway
in 2012, but had to be put
on hold after the federal
budget cuts. Reviving the
fund development plan has
injected fresh energy into
RMBR. With its focus on
maintaining biodiversity,
healthy sustainable ecosys-
tems, and vital sustainable
communities, board mem-
bers are eager to see that
the untapped potential of
this organization get used
to help grow the economy
and preserve local culture.
Preserving local history
RMBR could coordi-
nate a number of diferent
projects like documenting
oral histories in order to
preserve the regions sto-
ries of settlement, triumphs
and tragedies, plagues, and
disasters, said board mem-
ber Don Huisman. Ev-
ery municipality has a few
sites and artifacts of local
signifcance that could be
catalogued, mapped and
made known to a larger au-
dience.
For example, the last
known building from the
Whitewater POW camp
is now a garage near
Strathclair. Te house of
murdered park warden,
Lawrence Lees, is now in
Rossburn. Panels of wood
made at Kippans Mill dur-
ing the Depression exist all
around the park.
Regional coordination
during amalgamation
T e Biosphere Re-
serve has a lot to ofer
municipalities in the way
of facilitation skills, ex-
plains Ray Frey, chairman
of RMBR. RMBR can as-
sist where there are con-
tentious issues, especially
cross-boundary, or as a
result of amalgamation be-
tween municipal partners.
Having an impartial third
party chair a meeting helps
keep the focus on needs
and issues rather than
emotions and history.
Frey also noted that
biosphere reserves are
mandated to focus on sus-
tainable development,
environmental sciences,
and cultural preservation.
UNESCO provides support
to biospheres for these ac-
tivities through knowledge
sharing and access to world
experts in their felds. Many
of these resources are out of
reach for rural municipali-
ties of 1,000 or fewer resi-
dents, but the combined
population of the region
is 20,000 people, so shar-
ing these assets at the bio-
sphere level makes it more
feasible.
European model
In Europe, public in-
vestment in biosphere re-
serves is signifcantly higher
than in Canada. Govern-
ments there acknowledge
the value of being in a bio-
sphere reserve and invest
on average $10 per person
per year into theirs. In re-
turn, they make full use of
their biosphere reserves
capacity for conservation,
development, communica-
tion, and logistical coordi-
nation. Tey have become
Europes laboratories of
ideas on questions of sus-
tainable growth.
In the near future,
RMBR board members
will be asking member
municipalities to consider
supporting the organiza-
tion through a contribution
based on roll numbers.
We could really help
municipalities to grow. An
investment in RMBR will
pay dividends many times
over, explains Frey. Tis
resource has not been uti-
lized to its fullest potential
in the past. We invite the
R.M.s to ask for assistance
with their highest priority
issues. We want them to be
aware of what we can do for
them.
Tis is a critical time
for RMBR. Te activities
mandated in their charter
must be carried out in or-
der to retain biosphere re-
serve status. Unfortunately,
if RMBR were to lose its
status, it will not get it back.
Founders, board members
and supporters of RMBR
will be encouraging mu-
nicipal leaders to support
the organization and more
importantly, to make use of
its full potential.
We would like RMBR
to become known as an
area dedicated to focusing
on developing models for
global, national and local
cultural, biological ecosys-
tem sustainability.

Harry Jones Harland
September ,
January ,
Harry Jones Harland passed away at the Minnedosa Care Home on January 26, 2014 after a
lengthy illness. Harry was born in Minnedosa on September 29, 1926, son of the late Harry and
Mary Harland. He grew up on the family farm at Moore Park and attended Moore Park School.
During his early years he helped out on the farm with his younger brothers Bob and Stan. Follow-
ing his 18
th
birthday Harry enlisted in the Canadian Army and had just completed his advanced
basic training when the war ended. He returned to the family farm, eventually taking over the
operation and buying more land. He continued to farm until the mid 90s. At that time he retired
and moved into Minnedosa. Harry loved sports and was a very good athlete playing ball, hockey
and golf. In his later years Harry was a very active shuf e board player and won many trophies
at tournaments he entered. In his retirement, Harry enjoyed travelling and spending the winter
months at his trailer in Texas.
Harry was very proud to be an active member of the Royal Canadian Legion.
Harry leaves to mourn his brother Bob (Florence) and sister in law, Margaret Harland as
well as many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his parents Harry and Mary
Harland, his brother Stan Harland and his nephew Bob Harland.
Our family wishes to extend our thanks to the caring staf of the Minnedosa Care Home for
all of their kindness and support to Harry.
Funeral services were held at St. Marks Anglican Church in Minnedosa on Tuesday, Febru-
ary 4, 2014 with the Reverend Gary MacDowall of ciating.
Flowers are gratefully declined. Friends who wish to make a donation in memory of Harry
can make them to the Minnedosa Care Home.

1952. Of this union, they had a chosen daughter, Patricia Jean Stewart.
Tey lived in Minnedosa where RD began his career on the farm and then went to Manitoba
Hydro. From there he got his Real Estate licence and had a life long career as an appraiser and
real estate agent. One of his dreams was to build an apartment and in 1985 his dream became a
reality with the creation of the Stewart House.
RD belonged to the Legion, Kinsmen, served on Minnedosa Town Council and acted as
Deputy Mayor, Chair of the Parks Board, member of Manitoba Real Estate Board and, mostly,
was an avid community member.
RD was predeceased by his cherished daughter, Patti (2004), his wife Gladys (2005), his
brothers George and wife Telma, Alex, sister Irene and husband Frank, brother-in-law Bill
(Lewis), and, Georges son Joel.
