Allee Gerrard and Tamara Knap of Southey. Ben Schmidt of Southey. Hockey and Curling season is winding down in the Earl Grey and Southey area and there has been some exciting news. The 2017 Acres for Ice raised $43,974 for the Southey Skating Rink. Daryl Frank, of JJD Farms, lead the project entirely. His efforts are key to the success of the rink and everyone is very grateful. If you are interested in learning more about the Acres for Ice program, contact the Southey Skating Rink. The Southey and District Lions Club donated $6,000 to the Southey Skating Rink to help with the replacement cost of the Fire Door at the Zamboni room. The Lions continuing support of the rink helps keep hockey and skating fees low for the children. Congratulations to Allee Gerrard and Tamara Knap (of both Southey) and their Prairie Central Team, for bringing home a gold medal from the 2018 Saskatchewan Winter Games in North Battleford late last month. Also, congratulations to Ben Schmidt (of Southey) along with the Prairie Central Team, on winning a silver medal in hockey at the Games. They went 3 and 0 in the round robin, then played Saskatoon in the final but lost 6-4 to bring home the silver. Ben plays for the Southey Marlins Bantam team.

MINISTERIAL MESSAGES A lesson on Lent Lent is a time for renewal, to improve our relationship with Jesus, the state of our heart and how we care for the world around us. The Church calls us to pray, to fast and to give alms during lent. First, how should we pray? Jesus taught us to ask for important things when we pray. For example the “Our Father” teaches to ask for people to see God’s glory and worship him, to ask for people to embrace God’s plan, to ask for God to give us our daily bread, to forgive our sins, and to protect us from the devil. He promised - if we ask, we will receive, if we are persistent in our prayer, we will see God act and to join us, along with his mother Mary in praying for all the needs and concerns we bring to him. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father to intercede for us and points out in Luke’s Gospel in various parables to be persistent. St. Paul said “pray without ceasing”. Therefore, pray for important things and be SGI dropping non-productive call rate system Last week, SUMA announced that SGI will stop using the non-productive call rate system for time spent by fire departments responding to motor vehicle collisions (MVCs) on provincial highways. Saskatchewan’s fire departments will now be compensated at a rate of $913 for every hour spent at a collision in 2018, rather than having their time potentially classified at the lower, non-productive rate of $549 per hour. The change will result in approximately $510,000 more in reimbursement for Saskatchewan’s fire departments in the first year alone. “Fire departments are not legally or legislatively responsible for responding to MVCs outside their municipality, but our hometown departments do so because they are committed to public safety,” said Gordon Barnhart, SUMA President. “Dropping the non-productive call rate means our departments will be more fairly compensated for their dedication, and it will allow municipalities to continue providing much needed services.” Doug Lapchuk, President of the Saskatchewan Volunteer Fire Fighters Association, said the change will not only help compensate fire departments, and ultimately municipalities and their taxpayers, for all equipment and manpower used at an MVC, but it alters the perception that certain duties performed by members are less valuable than others. Kevin Eskra, President of the Saskatchewan Association of Fire Chiefs, believes the compensation may also increase responder safety. The change is a result of four years of SUMA advocacy efforts, in partnership with the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities, the Saskatchewan Association of Fire Chiefs, and the Saskatchewan Volunteer Fire Fighters Association. SUMA says it is continuing to work with SGI to increase the productive call rate to $1,200 per hour, as third-party research commissioned by SUMA shows that current compensation rates, even for time deemed productive, are failing to fully cover costs incurred by fire departments. persistent. Secondly, why fast? Satan uses similar tactics on us as he did on Jesus in the desert, lures of comfort, pleasure and power to make us so concerned about ourselves that we forget about God and his call to love one another. Fasting says “I am not going to let anything, not even my appetites, be more important than my love for God and people”. The goal during lent is to renew ourselves, to “put away” our old self and “put on” our new self as St. Paul puts it. Try the following fasting challenges from Pope Francis to change the old self to a new self. • Fast from HURTING WORDS and says KIND WORDS. • Fast from SADNESS and be filled with GRATITUDE. • Fast from ANGER and be filled with PATIENCE. • Fast from PESSIMISM and be filled with HOPE. • Fast from WORRIES and TRUST IN GOD. • Fast from COMPLAINTS and -media release Monday, March 5, 2018 • Last Mountain Times contemplate SIMPLICITY. • Fast from PRESSURES and be PRAYERFUL. • Fast from BITTERNESS and fill your heart with JOY. • Fast from SELFISHNESS and be COMPASSIONATE to others. • Fast from GRUDGES and be RECONCILED. • Fast from WORDS and be SI- LENT so you can listen. Thirdly, why give alms? Either we grow in our concern for those in need or we will become increasingly immune to their suffering. The Gospel of Matthew tells us to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, welcome the stranger, clothed the naked, care for the sick and visit the prisoner. Why? “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me”. Jesus wants us to feel the pain and to see that they are just as much children of God as we are. The parable of the Good Samaritan shows us the proper stewardship of our time, talent and treasure - given from the heart not from the mind.
