DISCOVERING DIVERSITY IN LANGUAGE CLASS 2014

Hola!! Tan’si!!

Would you like to have fun learning a second language, such as Spanish or Cree? Did you know that Spanish is the third most spoken language in the world and that Cree is spoken by at least 24,000 people in Saskatchewan alone? Think of how great it would be to be able to chat with the locals when you go away to Latin America, or to understand Cree in Saskatchewan! Learning a second language can also open your mind to a new culture, and open the door to new employment opportunities!

Struther’s Lake Regional Park was filled with the sounds of music Sunday as local rock bands and solo artists performed for a rock concert.

The B.E.D.rock Festival Society was recently formed to promote the genres of rock and blues music in the province.

Kiskaciwan Youth Council (KYC) is comprised of Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation (PBCN) youth members who reside in and around the community of Chief Joseph Custer I.R# 201.

KYC is set up in an attempt to engage the PBCN Youth to get involved in healthy activities in our community. Drugs and alcohol abuse is an all too common issue with youth living in urban settings. Without adequate emotional, spiritual, physical, mental and financial support, youth can easily fall between the cracks that may lead to alternative lifestyles such as drug/alcohol addiction and gangs.

Kinistino Embraces National Communities in Bloom Competition

by Karen Cay

Once again the town of Kinistino has impressed Communities in Bloom judges on a national scale.

The small community, located approximately 70 km east of Prince Albert, has been involved in the Communities in Bloom program for nine years. Having won provincial competition twice for their category, the town was invited to national competition which has been the level they’ve been at for four years.

The premier entertainment event of summer in PA kicks off with the 131st Exhibition parade Monday evening. Then, from Tuesday to Saturday the Exhibition grounds are a frenzy of 'fair goers', young and old, having the best family time of their lives. All of us have special memories of taking thrilling rides, watching the entertainers on stage and roving around the grounds.

August 1-7 is World Breastfeeding Week. There is scientific evidence that shows that breast milk is the best food for babies during the early period of their lives. There are benefits for the baby, the mother, the family, the community and the environment.

Breast milk is served from the original container and is portable, and mothers’ milk does not need heated or cooled before a baby can take it.
