Last paper before summer holiday break!

Tomorrow, July 28, there will be a Unity Wilkie Press-Herald newspaper waiting for you – at the office 310 Main Street, Unity, grocery stores, the C-store, etc. It’s the last issue before a two-week holiday break for staff, so the next weekly community newspaper for Unity and area isn’t scheduled to appear until August 18.

Be sure to check out the paper for:

  • yet another Unity team that brought home a provincial title;
  • a new Canadian citizen talks about her experience;
  • a story on Greg Schwaga who walked through Unity and Wilkie on his trek across the province, raising awareness and funds for Huntington’s disease; and
  • a full page feature on local athletes and volunteers at the Saskatchewan Special Olympics Summer Games.

Below, Blake Robertson of the Unity Cardinals dives for third base as the ball (to the right of no. 2, Graeme Gieni) flies towards the Standard Hill third baseman. The Cardinals won the game, and the next one. of the NSRBL semifinals and will meet the Border City Blue Jays in the league final.

Next week’s paper

Come Monday and the July 13th issue of the Unity Wilkie Press-Herald and we will be almost halfway through July already! Get out when you can and enjoy the summer!

The pages of next week’s paper will tell you:

  • who the first ball teams are to bring provincial titles back home to Unity;
  • what local farmers are saying about this year’s hay crop;
  • about the last Cardinals/Brewers game of the regular NSRBL season; and
  • what kind of insects were captured in the Malaise trap at St. Peter’s School earlier this spring.

And don’t forget to check out the ads (two of our Main Street businesses have specials on this month!).

Upcoming paper

With a significant summer storm hitting Saskatchewan at Luseland, Unity and areas July 17, next week’s issue of the Unity Wilkie Press-Herald has a full-length article and plenty of photo coverage on damage done. Not covered in the article is that some rural homes south of Unity did not have power restored until close to noon July 18. In the Town of Unity itself power was out from sometime after 4 pm until 1 am in the morning.

Along with storm coverage, you will find:

  • an article and photos on baseball teams winning provincial championships;
  • an article and photos from Drowning Prevention Week activities at the swimming pool;
  • two articles from court in Unity SK July 21 – results of drug possession charges and an update on the animal cruelty charges regarding the Scott horses;
  • a songwriting competition, senior Cardinals’ playoff update, ads for August events including the re-opening of Cinema Satellite (see the unitystories calendar page for more info), the RCMP report and more.

Enjoy and be informed!

With another storm threatening July 23, the fence line at the Cardinals’ home playoff game was unusually empty as can be seen in this photo of Francis Kiefer on the pitcher’s mound.
