For Dwight Bergstrom, manager of Leisure Sports in Prince Albert, the customer is always number one.

Perhaps that sounds like a cliche, but when a store owner in the ever-competitive world of retail sales decides to do things above and beyond the call of duty, the description seems apt.

Oh, and was it mentioned that he also makes it possible for status Indians to鈥

This year, I?m going back to school for the first time in two years. Ever since I graduated from high school in 1999, I?ve been hard at work with Gen-X Magazine, publishing issues and working hard to meet deadlines. Now I?m taking that big step from high school to university, and I must say I?m more prepared than Tom Green going into surgery for testicular cancer. It?s been a鈥

The gigantic Tunguska blast of 1908 should have made headlines around the globe, but there were no intrepid reporters combing the wilds of Siberia to record what has been called the biggest celestial event in recent history. Only a few nomadic tribesmen tending their herds of reindeer were witnesses to a mystery that remains unsolved to this day.

?Theatre is like church. Theatre will save your soul; it saved mine. When I was in my denial period ? ?I am not an Indian? ? I acquired a lot of masks which allowed me to survive in the world. What theatre did was forcibly remove those masks until there was nothing left but a heartbeat, which was me.?

Raised by his grandparents, Gladys and William Moose, on the Fox Lake鈥

Very few employers are understanding with their employees when they want to take about a month off all at once during the year. Luckily for John Fitzgerald, the sports and recreation co-ordinator at the Prince Albert Grand Council, his bosses are more than slightly understanding. After all, it is an Olympic year, and his services are required in Sydney, Australia next month.鈥

The Standing Buffalo Dakota First Nation had a little bit more to celebrate recently than the first anniversary of its personal care home.

There have been many community celebrations across Saskatchewan to mark the sod-turning of a new hospital, but few ever proceeded like the ceremonies to mark the construction of the new Fort Qu?Appelle Indian Hospital.
