The paper next week

As the rundown to hockey playoffs ramps up and Minor Hockey Week is observed in Canada, the January 12th Unity Wilkie Press-Herald features its annual salute to Minor Hockey. Team photos of the minor hockey teams in both Unity SK and Wilkie SK, along with a mid-season report on standings for the Unity Lazer teams and the Luseland Mallards are featured, along with the history of Ceys playing hockey in Wilkie.

But that is not all! Oh no, that is not all! You can also read about:

  • an opinion on nursing home care, contrasting personal experience with recent negative reports in mainstream Saskatchewan media;
  • the science of fog and hoar frost.
