“At this stage we’re focused on the practise and training and development side of things,” Landry said. “If it gets to the stage of the season being cancelled or the season being delayed further, we’ll be in communication with the Regina Pats and the Western Hockey League and the Bedard family to make a decision that is best for everyone involved.”

Bedard had been training in Vancouver when a delay to the WHL season prompted Newport to seek other options.

Why Sweden? Because it presents an opportunity for high-level training in a team environment alongside older players, which isn’t readily available at home under current COVID-19 restrictions.

Sweden is also a world leader in developing NHL players.

“HV71 is one of the more progressive organizatio...

Fraud, backlogs disrupt US unemployment benefit payments

By CHRISTOPHER RUGABER and MARYCLAIRE DALE

WASHINGTON (AP) — Many American workers applying for unemployment benefits after being thrown out of a job by the coronavirus face a new complication: States’ efforts to prevent fraud have delayed or disrupted their payments.

California has said it will stop processing new applications for two weeks as it seeks to reduce backlogs and stop phony claims. Pennsylvania has found that up to 10,000 inmates improperly applied for aid.

The biggest threat is posed by sophisticated international fraud rings that often use stolen identities to apply for benefits, filling out the forms with a wealth of accurate information that enables their applications to “sail through the system,” said Michele Evermore, an expert on jobless aid at the National Employ...

Creating opportunities for staff to check in with one another and talk through any anxieties or fears they are experiencing is a key piece of that strategy. Providing similar social connection points for students to talk to staff about any challenges they are facing is also important in quashing feelings of isolation.

“The antidote to anxiety and isolation is the development of social connections,” Enion said.

How those social connections are fostered will have to look different to follow health and safety guidelines, however. Enion said RPS is looking at ways to do this without holding its normal group sessions, whether that be one-on-one mentorship or phone calls.

The Regina Catholic School Division (RCSD) is also preparing to see more staff and students r...

The Latest: Britain reports highest daily cases at 6,600

By The Associated Press

LONDON — Britain has reported the highest number of coronavirus cases in a single day with 6,632 infections.

Public Health England Medical Director Yvonne Doyle says the figure is a “stark warning’ as infections rise across all age groups.

She says citizens must follow the new restrictions announced by the government this week to control the spread of the virus. Doyle suggested downloading the National Health Service’s new coronarvirus contact tracing app.

Britain has the highest death toll in Europe, with nearly 42,000 confirmed dead. The rise in cases announced Thursday reflects both the spread of the virus and increased testing, which has more than doubled since the peak of the first wave in April and May.

“People at golf clubs don’t like change,’’ he says. “When you impose all of this change on a membership and their guests, you’re opening yourself up for all kinds of things. You’re also trying to do that and to be mindful of the importance of driving the bottom line.”

Dukart knows all about golf in Regina, having grown up in the Queen City while golfing at the Wascana.

After winning the 1974 junior men’s club title and men’s club championships in 1978 and 1980, he played in four mini-tour pro events in Arizona through the financial backing of some Wascana members.

“I didn’t play that poorly, but not good enough to be a tournament player,” he recalls.

Dukart returned to his hometown, landing a job at the Royal Regina Golf Club as an assi...

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional leaders from both parties, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, swiftly pushed back Thursday after President Donald Trump declined to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the Nov. 3 presidential election.

Trump said during a Wednesday news conference, “We’re going to have to see what happens,” responding to a question about committing to the results. “You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster.”

By Thursday, the White House sought to clarify Trump’s words

“The president will accept the results of a free and fair election,” said Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany...

Quarterbacks Luke Falk (Washington State) and Jack Abraham (Southern Mississippi) are among the 10 players on the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ negotiation list whose names were released by the CFL on Thursday.

Even though the 2020 season has been cancelled, the nine CFL teams are required to reveal the names of 10 players on the negotiation list as part of league policy. Teams can have up to 45 players on their negotiation list, which is constantly in flux.

Falk, 25, was selected in the sixth round (199th overall) of the 2018 NFL draft by the Tennessee Titans.

He dressed for four pre-season games with the Titans before being released after the pre-season. The Miami Dolphins claimed him on waivers before releasing him on May 1, 2019.

The next day, Falk (6-foot-4, 215 pounds...

Desk giveaway at Vining and old Ditson schools ‘huge success,’ says town manager

زسان | No comments

BILLERICA — Less than a week after Town Manager John Curran said that he expects both the Vining and old Ditson elementary schools to finally be demolished this spring, he informed the members of the Board of Selectmen recently that their effort to give away old desks from the schools was a “huge success.”

“It was a great success and it was a good way to use those desks,” Curran said. “With the climate we’re in, desks are a pretty good thing for remote learning, so people will use them for that purpose.”

Curran’s remarks came during the board’s virtual meeting, where he provided an update on the Sept. 12 event.

According to Curran, the town had 100 families pre-register for the event, though only half showed up.

Still, Curran was confident that the demand for desks re...
