Georgina Bassett has been
named Hay River's Citizen of
the Year.
She was presented with the
Alfred Mansell Citizen of the
Year Award for 2011 on Friday at the annual gala of the
Hay River Chamber of Commerce.
Bassett said she was very

Hay Riverites hungry for change
Ecology North holds workshops on food production
Angele Cano
[email protected]
A workshop on the food production system
has some Hay Riverites ready to change the
way they eat.
A dozen people gathered in the Hay River
library early this month for an hour on a Sunday afternoon to talk about the food production and transportation system in a discussion
group called ‘hungry for change.’
The free six-week workshop, which began
Feb. 12, is being offered through Ecology
North. It focuses on food, ethics and sustainability in the North, and how local people can
work together to change habits and promote
change. The program has already touched
down in Fort Smith and will soon be making its way to Fort Resolution, the Sahtu and
Trout Lake.
"The overall purpose is learning and supporting leadership and initiatives around food
and sustainability," said Shannon Ripley, Ecology North's lead co-ordinator for the program.
"People think it’s really hard to grow food
here. While our growing season is shorter,
really we can grow many things here. Bugs
and fungus are less of a problem, and we have just one person and this problem is just too
quite a history of growing our own food."

On a Sunday afternoon, several people

conceded it might be difficult to give up tropical fruit, or spoke of how they might change
how they consume meat and dairy products.
A few wondered about the viability of dairy
production in Hay River.
Although there are few options to buy
from Northern suppliers, Milne said there
are other things people can do to reduce their
carbon footprint while purchasing food, such
as choosing products from British Columbia
or Alberta, instead of from the United States
or overseas.
"With sustainability, there is no one monocultural solution," she said. "So you can tap
into each person and see what each has to
offer, rather than becoming paralyzed or
depressed or overwhelmed. With food, it
changes fast."

What do you think about kayaking in Hay River?
As a community close to water,
is kayaking a good way to enjoy the lakes and rivers in the summer?
Dana Cross
Hay River's athletes are gearing up for the
sporting opportunity of a lifetime.
Sunday will mark the opening of the 2012
Arctic Winter Games and 2,000 athletes from
the circumpolar world ranging from age 13 to
24 and their coaches will be heading to Whitehorse to represent their respective territories
and countries.
Competitors will be meeting athletes from
across the North, including Greenland, Yamal,
Sapmi and Alaska to test their skills against
other regions.
Thirty-three athletes from Hay River will be
heading to the Yukon and although we may
be far away from our
editorial representatives,
town will be cheering
them on from home.
But before Hay River's athletes leave, the Hub
has some words of encouragement as they
strive to compete at their highest level yet.
Athletes, soak up every moment of the competition.
Some of you will go on to compete at higher
levels, but others will be looking for a future in
something other than athletics.
So take it all in. All eyes of the circumpolar
world will be fixed on you for the next week and
this is your chance to shine.
But remember to do so with class and poise.
As representatives of the NWT, you want to
show sportsmanship and team spirit and leave
a positive impression of your territory. But have
fun while doing so.
This is not only your chance to compete at
one of the highest levels for Northern athletes,
but the opportunity to meet other athletes
from around Canada and the world. With other
nations involved, you may be able to learn a
thing or two about other countries and cultures.
So to all of you, good luck. Try your hardest
and we will be behind you.

Phab program to have young women

Kristen Campbell
[email protected]
It turns out newspapers can
be used for more than just
The creative minds behind
Phab, the most recent programming in town for young
women, have set their sights
on a fashion series and will
be using print media as their
"At Phab we are collecting
newspapers, magazines and
other materials for the girls to
use to create stylish dresses for
a newspaper dress competition
which will later be showcased
in a fashion show with La Dee
Dah Boutique's spring line and
accessories," said organizer
Marissa Oteiza.
She said the idea stemmed
from looking for something
unique and original to have the
girls work on, and would allow
them to learn in the process.
"After leading a leadership
and resiliency class at DJSS
(Diamond Jenness Secondary School) with some junior
high girls, the idea of fashion
design came up and I ran it
by a few of our local fashionistas in town. It then developed
into a six-part fashion design
workshop series in which we
would take a look at all aspects
of the fashion world including design, homemade, retail,
modelling and photo shoots,"
said Oteiza.
"We have already put on
a headband-making workshop
with Rosie Friesen in which
we explored the idea of the
clothing industry and the fun
of making things on your own
and out of recycled materials
as well as making your own
fashion statements. We then
had a 'go see' at La Dee Dah
Boutique in which Nikki (Ashton) and Dayna (King) introduced the girls to the world
of owning your own store and
their experiences in the fashion industry as well as some
tips for wearing what you like
in a small town."
The girls were put to the
challenge of choosing different outfits for the mannequins
at La Dee Dah and were critiqued on their choices.
This next challenge will
have them taking it a step
further, actually creating their
own clothing items.
Marissa Oteiza: Organizing a unique fashion project.
"We hope that the girls are
able to explore the concept
of teamwork and the joys in
showcasing something that
you have put pride into creating," said Oteiza.
The workshop and competition is open to girls aged 11
to 18 and will see them work
in teams as designers, seamstresses and models of their
own designs.
"This provides them with
the opportunity to use problem
solving skills, how to compromise and leadership skills as
they work through the dynamic
of a team, which is something
that is a major part of their
future through schooling and
the work environment," said
Oteiza. "This also gives them
the chance to express their
creating and develop skills
such as mathematical through
measurements, literacy and
research development, sewing,
drawing and design."
The workshops will be held
March 5, March 20 and March
28 from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. at
the Doug Weiterman Hall.

Hay River birdie bashers demonstrated why
the community makes up more than half of the
Arctic Winter Games team during the high school
badminton championships in Yellowknife from
Feb. 11-12.
A Group of 21 players returned from the NWT
High School badminton championship with at
least a top three finish in every division and a full
sweep of the juvenile girls and boys divisions.
Despite Hay River's skill at the sport, some
players still feel intimidated travelling into the
capital to compete.
It was harder than the tournaments we usually play because Yellowknife is more competitive
than we are," said Grade 11 student Krista Gardiner. "They like to smash lots. They smash really
well and have different strategies than we do."
Gardiner had her eye on high scores this weekend, and her focus, along with the skills and focus
of her partner, Kristen Morin, earned her third
place in doubles.
"Me and my partner communicate lots," said
Gardiner. "We get each other."

Huskies keep the wins at home
Hay River peewee team dominates tournament
Angele Cano
[email protected]
The Hay River Huskies were undefeated throughout their four-team home
tournament on the weekend.
The peewee team of 17 players coached
by John Hill and Dean McMeekin enjoyed
an uninterrupted series of wins thanks to
great team chemistry and some new skills
team members employed, the coaches
said. Hill and McMeekin equated the
team's final win in the annual home tournament to hard work and new strategies.
"They had to work hard to win but they
did really well," said Hill. "They displayed
good sportsmanship and worked really
hard on their defence. There was really
good chemistry this year. They get along
on and off the ice."
The ice-breakers hockey camp held
to kick off the season was an impetus
for this, said Hill. Athletes learned some
integral defence and passing techniques
that helped in the tournament. Their drill
of choice was the four-player pass – a drill
they incorporated into every practice, and
one that paid off, giving athletes the skills
to give a 100-per-cent team effort, said
"That drill really stressed that they get
on the puck," said Hill. "For some it was
their first tournament, and for some it was
their fifth, but they were able to work well

River, Alta., and Yellowknife but have yet
to head to Edmonton and High Level.
The tournament was a success, also,
thanks to the countless efforts from parents, referees and volunteers who supported the team with their time and skills.

Kayak polo falls flat in Hay River
Little interest in sport over past three years
Angele Cano
[email protected]
The NWT Kayak Association
Kayak Polo Territorial Championships might be looking for a new
host community considering interest
in the event has been poor in Hay
River over the past three years.
This is the third time the championships have been held in the Hay
River pool, but there has been little
interest over those years from local
people to participate. Of the 20 competitors, only one person from town
showed up to play in the tournament
from Feb. 25 to 26. Of the four
teams involved, most participants
were from Fort Smith and Yellowknife.
"I think we need to reconsider
whether we’re going to come again,"
said NWT Kayak Association
president Steve Hatch. "We keep
hearing interest generating, but no
one seems to be interested because
they never turn up."
Hatch said with the five-hour
drive to Hay River, the more expensive pool rental and little interest it
might be enough to push the association to hold the tournament in
Yellowknife next year.
Recreation programmer for the
town of Hay River, Emma Harper,
said that would be a shame. Harper
advertised for the event around town
and through social media and said
she didn’t get much response compared to many other events.
"We need some sort of grassroots

association in Hay River to get it
going," she said. "I definitely think
there’s an interested in it, but it needs
to start from the basics here in Hay
River. It's not like hockey (which) has
had a really long presence here and
it's at every level in the town, and a
lot of people are invested in it."
Hatch said kayaking has been
steadily gaining in popularity over
the past several years. A team of
eight paddlers from Yellowknife and
Fort Smith recently returned from
the Cup of the North in Edmonton, a
tournament that hosts kayakers from
all over the world. He said he would
like to see it also spark interest in
Hay River.
"I'd love to see people from Hay
River get involved and someday start
a club, but it’s hard to break into
that town," said Hatch. 'Logistically,
it’s right in the middle of Yellowknife and Fort Smith. There is an
untapped resource there. Hay River
is the second biggest town, there’s
the river and people that are into
water sports."
Hatch has lived in Yellowknife
since 2007 and notices many sports
have a tough time competing with
hockey but he hopes that will
"You could train kids in schools;
there is that potential there," said
Hatch. "Sea kayaking would help
people with canoeing compared
to hockey culture, kayaking is a
leap into the dark to try something

Successful race weekend in Yellowknife
Three gold, two silver and a bronze medal at NWT Speed Skating Championships
Kristen Campbell
[email protected]
Hay River's skaters showed dominance in Yellowknife at this year's
NWT Speed Skating Championships
on Feb. 18 and 19.
Seven athletes travelled north and
competed against skaters from Fort
Simpson, Norman Wells, Fort Smith,
and Inuvik.
For three of Hay River's skaters, it
was the first opportunity to compete
at a territorial level. For the others,
it was a chance to catch up with athletes from across the territory who
they have come to know.
And, for all, it was a chance to
aim for their best on the ice.
"It is so nice to see the kids
from all communities congratulating each other as they come off ice
after a hard fought race," said Jackie
Karp, Hay River Speed Skating Club
president. "Parents and coaches from
other clubs cheer for Hay River skaters and vice versa."
Jesse Karp, 10, placed first in two
A division finals and finished second
in another two. He finished with
the most points in the fundamentals
group, aged six to nine years old, and
received the gold medal to become
the NWT Fundamentals Speed Skating Champion.
Jack Coombs, 9, finished seventh
in the fundamentals division 1 category.
Ian Aylward, 7, competed territorially for the first time in the
fundamentals division 2 and came in
seventh overall which allowed him to
take home the C group gold medal.
"He brings a smile to the ice
and to our faces when he skates and
clearly loves to be speed skating,"
said Jackie Karp.
Kaed Blake, 13, the speed skater who will be representing Hay
River in the upcoming Arctic Winter
Games, skated hard in the train to
train division for ages 13 to 16 and
took home the bronze medal for best
overall male in his division. Tori
Blake, 10, competed in the learn to
train division and faced some tough
For the newest skaters, Madison
McPhee, 10, and Harrison TweediePitre, 11, it was all an exciting experience.
"Madison has only been skating
with us for a few weeks and had to
deal with more experienced skaters
in her group," said Karp. "She made
us all proud."

This is the second year
the camp will be held in Hay
River and Butler hopes the
participation doubles from last
year's numbers.
"We had 20 kids and three
coaches last year," he said. "We
are hoping to double that."
The program has expanded
to include Inuvik, adding to
the camps in Yellowknife, Hay
River and Fort Smith. Butler
said as of Feb. 24 there was
already one youth from Hay
River registered.
But Challenger Sports' first
attempt at a camp was not
without its setbacks and the
company is hoping to streamline the week-long program.
"It's always interesting
going into a community for
the first time," said Butler.
"Things are all spread by word
of mouth in town. Last year
there were some kids who
showed up during the last
few days wanting to take part
because they didn't hear about
(the camp). Hopefully this year
they know and can be involved
right from the start."
