A flurry of activity can be found at the arena every night of the week as residents of all ages take part in a variety of on-ice activities. Last week, a few of Minnedosa’s youngest skaters took to the ice as the local Canskate pro-gram was kicked off. “Canskate is a learn-to-skate program for ages three and up. Tis year, there are 31 children in the program. We also have our Starskate program for learning the dance, and free skate routines of 󿬁gure skating. Tis year there are 󿬁ve Starskaters in our club,” commented Clarice Robinson, pro-gram co-ordinator. CanSkate is a program designed to help new skaters develop strong ba-sic skills through fun and participation. Centering on physical literacy and fundamentals needed to participate in any on-ice activity. Tis year’s coach for CanSkate is Michelle Ries-meyer from Brandon and the program also sees a number of local youth vol-unteer to help on the ice. “We also have a col-laboration agreement with Minnedosa Minor Hockey that if a player in the HIP league has not been in a CanSkate program, they are offered one CanSkate lesson a week, just to help them develop their skills,” added Robinson. CanSkate is a national program, backed by Skate Canada and offers a tested and proven curriculum and delivery method for guaranteed skater suc-cess. Each child is assessed at the beginning of the program and presented  with badges and ribbons to benchmark progress. Instructors focus on the fundamentals of balance, control and agility.

Hometown Manitoba is a grant program that of-fers 󿬁nancial support for rural and northern com-munity projects in order to assist communities in enhancing their Main Streets, community gath-ering places and building extremities. Te Hometown Mani-toba program is broken down into three different components—Meeting Places, Main Street and ree Planting. Te Meetings Places grant, which is open to non-pro󿬁t community organizations, munici-palities and community councils or co-operatives, offers a grant for up to one-third of project costs up to $5000.00. Tis initia-tive is focused on support-ing community projects that enhance Main Street areas and outdoor space. Eligible projects un-der the Meeting Places component may include the development or up-grading of outdoor spac-es that are accessible to the general community. Tese may include out-door spaces associated  with parks, gathering places, senior or youth centres, clinics, nursing homes, schools, libraries and churches. Te Main Street grant is focused on the appear-ance of building exteriors, building face lifts, new signage and landscaping. It is open to non-pro󿬁t community organizations, small businesses or co-operatives and offers to cover one-half of project costs, up to $1000.00. he ree Planting grant offers to cover half of eligible project costs up to a maximum of $5000.00 to non-profit community organizations, munici-palities, and community co-operatives. Last year over 100 Manitoba communities took advantage of this grant money, covering costs on a variety of proj-ects including renova-tions to store fronts, park enhancement, signage, creation of shelter belts,  washroom and kitchen upgrades, sidewalks and lighting. In 2014, Minnedo-sa’s Rivers Edge Recre-ation Park as well as the Minnedosa Senior Citi-zens Association Inc., both received funds from the Hometown Manitoba program. his program has been created to help sup-port community driven projects that build com-munity pride and citizen involvement. Minnedosa groups who feel they  would qualify for grant funds are encouraged to use this resource to assist in increasing investment in our Main Street areas. he application deadline for 2015 grants is Decem-ber 15th. “he CDC office is certainly offing our as-sistance with filling pa-perwork or explaining the program and we in- vite anyone interested in applying to contact the office for an appoint-ment,” commented Mar-tijn van Luijn, economic development officer with Minnedosa and Area Community Develop-ment Corporation. For more information contact the CDC office.

Te meeting opened  with a public hearing to deal with a variation or-der application to vary  yard requirements to al-low for the development of Westview Estates, the affordable housing project in the southwest corner of town north of Poplar Park Mobile Home Com-munity. As there were no comments or concerns re-ceived regarding this ap-plication, it was passed.  A resolution was passed to authorize Coun-cillor Harvey Wedgewood to remain on as Deputy Mayor for the own. Council also reviewed bylaw #2508 to regu-late the proceedings and conduct of council and council committees. Tis bylaw, established under Mayor LaCoste’s council in the summer of 2009 re-quired a few updates. Te 󿬁rst was to allow council to meet at 6:30 p.m. rather than 5:30 p.m. during the period from May to Sep-tember to work around  work schedules of council members. A meeting time change was also required for council’s summer meeting schedule, moving the July and August meet-ings of council from 1 p.m. to 9 a.m. Tese required amendments were dis-cussed and agreed upon and will be introduced through the proper bylaw procedure at an upcom-ing regular meeting of council. Following the special meeting, Council held its regular October Commit-tee of the Whole meeting. Councillor committee ap-pointments were made as follows: Councillor Saler   –  Vet Services, Conserva-tion District and Protec-tive Services. Councillor Skatch – Community Devel-opment Corporation, Library, Health Foun-dation, Yellowhead Re-gional Skills and General Government Services. Councillor Taylor   – Recreation Commission, Evergreen Environmen-tal echnologies, PR#355 Road Committee, Plan-ning District and Public  Works and Utilities. Councillor Wedge-wood   – Community Complex, Minnedosa Foundation, Archives and Planning and Develop-ment. Councillor Luker   – Handi Van, Services to Seniors, Conference Cen-tre and Spruce Plains Jus-tice Committee. Councillor Mac-Dowall   – Heritage Village and Recreation and Cul-ture. Mayor Orr   – rans Canada yellow head Highway Association. By JENNIFER PAIGE  M innedosa’s Expres-sions Concert Series is gearing up to host its second performer of the season, David James and Big River. David James and Big River is a Johnny Cash trib-ute band who is dedicated to replicating the most au-thentic Cash sound, man-nerism and style, provid-ing audiences with a living prodigy to one of history’s truest music legends. David James focuses his rendition of Cash on his rich baritone voice, emulating Johnny in the physical mannerisms of the way he holds his guitar, sings, talks and interacts  with the audience. “I have been perform-ing as Johnny for the past six years. We have done quite a few tours, the 󿬁rst few years on Victoria Is-land and then more re-cently through Alberta, Saskatchewan and Mani-toba,” said James. James was born in o-󿬁eld, Alberta but currently resides in Nanaimo, British Colombia. Te group has been on a Canadian tour for a little over a month. “We are currently in Regina and the tour is go-ing wonderfully. We have performed about 17 gigs in a little over a month.  We like to perform a wide  variety of songs and in-corporate some great sto-ries along the way. I really love getting the crowd in- volved,” continued James. James’s stage part-ners, Big River, are made up of odd Sacerty on bass, Duncan Symonds on gui-tar, and Colin Stevenson on drums. “When I 󿬁 rst started to perform it took a little  while to 󿬁nd the right group of guys to play with. odd, our bass player and he really is our Marshall Grant. He takes care of all the road managing duties. I am great with Cash but not so good with money.” David James and Big River have performed on a  variety of different stages, from small town theatre  venues to a music festival in Quebec in front of an audience of 10,000. Tey have been everywhere from the coast of B.C., to Nova Scotia and Washing-ton State. “My favourite type of  venue to play would be a theatre style. I do love to play for big groups but I prefer smaller stages as I can really get personal with the audience and make a connection. When per-forming you have to feel it in your gut and then the audience will feel it to. Tis is what makes the differ-ence between a mediocre and stellar performance.” David James and Big River will be gracing the stage of the Minnedosa Community Conference Centre on Friday, Novem-ber 14th. Te group will be fresh off the stage in Neepawa and heading to McCreary following the performance in town. Tose in attendance should expect authen-tic renditions of some of Cash’s classics like Walk the Line, Get Rhythm and Boy Named Sue. “Replicating someone as well known as Cash, you really need to know your stuff. Tere are some re-ally die-hard fans out there and they will quiz you. I have performed for a num-ber of audience members  who were fortunate to have seen Johnny perform,” added James.

In fact, we’ve cut taxes over 160 times saving the average family $3,400 every year. It’s a record that many Canadian families have bene󿬁tted from. For example, almost a million and a half families have taken advantage of the Children’s Fit-ness ax Credit. And approximately 1.7 million families  with young children receive the Universal Child Care Ben-e󿬁t. However, our Government is always looking for new  ways to help. Tat’s why we’re working to put even more cash back into the pockets of hard-working Canadian families. We’re building on our record with new measures that will continue to help offset the costs of raising a fam-ily, such as child care and sports activities. First, to increase tax fairness, we are introducing the new Family ax Cut. Since we have had such success with income splitting for seniors, we are now offering a simi-lar initiative for families. Te Family ax Cut will allow the higher-earning parent to, in effect, transfer taxable income to the other parent who is in a lower tax bracket, up to a maximum bene󿬁t of $2,000. Tis will enhance fairness by treating families with the same overall incomes in a com-parable way. We are also introducing an increase and expansion of the Universal Child Care Bene󿬁t (UCCB). We are proud that since 2006, the UCCB has delivered choice for parents  when it comes to child care. We are now increasing the bene󿬁t to $160 per month per child under the age of six, or $1,920 per year. And we’re delivering a new bene󿬁t of $60 per month, or $720 per year, per child aged six through seventeen. About four million fami-lies are expected to bene󿬁t from the enhancements to the Universal Child Care Bene󿬁t. We are also increasing each of the Child Care Expense Deduction dollar limits by $1,000. Tis is the initiative that allows child care expenses to be deducted from taxable income if the child care is due to the parent working, going to school or performing research. Te limits will be increased to $8,000 from $7,000 per child under age seven, $5,000 from $4,000 for each child aged seven to sixteen (and in󿬁rm dependent children over age sixteen), and $11,000 from $10,000 for children who are eligible for the Disability ax Credit. Finally, our Government has previously announced changes to the Children’s Fitness ax Credit. We are dou-bling the amount parents can claim for enrolling their children in sports activities to $1,000. And as of the 2015 tax year, the credit will be refundable, increasing the ben-e󿬁t for low-income families who claim it that year and subsequent years. While our Government builds on our strong record of signi󿬁cant tax relief for families, Canadians can be sure that if given the opportunity, the Opposition would re- verse all the work that’s been accomplished so far. Instead, our Conservative Government is focused on continuing to stand up for families. Robert Sopuck, MP Dauphin-Swan River-Marquette Letters  to the  Editor  Dear Editor, I belong to Operation Legacy, which is made up of members and graduates of Te War Amps Child Am-putee (CHAMP) Program and is dedicated to teaching the younger generation about Canada’s military heritage. Remembrance Day is special to me and to Champs across the country as Te War Amps was created by vet-erans who returned from the First World War missing limbs. Tey were there to support each other and then passed on their knowledge to amputee veterans return-ing from the Second World War. Tey then created the CHAMP Program to assist young amputees like me. CHAMP provides 󿬁 nancial assistance for arti󿬁cial limbs and regional seminars where we can share con-cerns and advice. Because of this, I feel it is my duty to carry on the torch of remembrance and help ensure the sacri󿬁ces of those who served are never forgotten. Operation Legacy exists to remind us that our veter-ans put their lives on the line to defend the defenceless and protect our democratic society. Remembering the lessons of the past may give hope for a peaceful future.Sincerely, Carlyn Graff, Operation Legacy Member,  Winnipeg, MB Standing up for families with Latest Tax Cuts Carrying the Torch of Remembrance Support Alyx...  A bene󿬁 t social in spport of Alyx Delaloye in her 󿬁ght against leukemia will be held tommorrow night (Novem-ber 8th) at the Yellowhead Centre in Neepawa. Many of our readers are familiar with the Delaloye family from their many years of ownership of Uncle om’s Restau-rant. You can also help out by making a 󿬁nancial dona-tion to a bene󿬁t account setup for Alyx at the Minnedosa Credit Union. Halloween Dance...  Hats off to the organizers of the Halloween Dance at the Polonia Hall Saturday night. It was great to see the old country hall back in use and full of people. A great deal of  work has been done to the hall and all involved should be complimented. Watch for more upcoming attractions at the hall in Polonia Valley. Time to Remember...  uesday is Remembrance Day and in light of the re-cent tragic happenings in Canada, we are reminded of the sacri󿬁ce our Canadian war heroes have made for all of us. If you are unable to take in a Remembrance Day service in your community, please at least take a few mo-ments of silence to remember our fallen at 11 a.m. Early Deadline...  As a result of Remembrance Day, Te ribune  will  join other businesses in closing on this monumental day of remembrance. Because of our uesday closure, our regular deadline will be bumped up to Monday, Novem-ber 10th. Please have all news and advertising copy into us Monday for next Friday’s paper.
