Brandon Sun (Newspaper) - June 28, 2002, Brandon, Manitoba Byelection will take place within weeks CONTINUED FROM PAGE Al The band’s casino project, however, might have been his main legacy had he stayed on to see it built. After more than two years of Whitecloud and    Mayor Reg Atkinson trading barbs, city council recently agreed to negotiate an urban reserve. A byelection    to replace Whitecloud will take place within a month and a half, says Coun. Ken McKay, who isn’t seeking the job. Blacksmith says he would prefer the five councillors to carry on without a chief to save cash-strapped Sioux Valley a salary exceeding $50,000. Whitecloud, who has long lived off reserve, returned to Sioux Valley Tuesday to tell council he was through, McKay says. “He wanted to keep it quiet. No big entourage. Just between the chief and council.” The former chief hasn’t returned calls from the Brandon Sun for more than a week. “It was frustration,” McKay says of Whitecloud’s mood. “He needed time to himself to deal with some personal issues ... He’s going to take it easy, take one day at a time.” With Whitecloud gone, healing needs to take place on the reserve, McKay says. “We’re looking at this as positively as we can. It’s a learning experience. We’re not the only band to go through this.” Whitecloud’s sister may run for chief The nameplate for Sioux Valley First Nation chief may continue to read “K. Whitecloud.” Coun. Kathy Whitecloud, sister of former chief Ken Whitecloud, is considering running to replace him when the band holds a byelection this summer. “I haven’t been asked and would leave it to the community to decide who they’re going to nominate. Would I let (my name) stand? I’m going to take a few days to think about it.” Whitecloud has served barely three months as councillor, but has a lengthy resume of leadership experience. Initially trained as a teacher, she says she’s also served as director of education at Sioux Valley, chief executive officer of Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council, regional director of education    with the Department of Indian Affairs in Manitoba, and chief executive officer of the national organization Assembly of First Nations. She says she returned to Sioux Valley last winter to run in the band election. “It’s kind of been a circle,” she says. — Brandon Sun Chiropractic patients confront Doer at legislature WINNIPEG — Manitoba Premier Gary Doer and a cabinet minister were battered with mail yesterday from patients angry with cuts to chiropractic services. Doer was surrounded by more than 200 protesters who trooped to the Legislature for the third consecutive day to deliver 55,000 letters to the premier and his cabinet. They pounced on Doer after question period in an stuffy corridor, first waving, and then tossing batches of letters high in the air. Staff members were shoved and Erie Robinson, Indian and Northern Affairs Minister, was struck in the head with a batch of letters. Doer was rescued by three legislature security officers and members of his staff who ushered him towards the NDP Caucus room. But when he disappeared inside, the protesters stacked piles of letters outside the door. Doer escaped through a back door route a few minutes later, but the protesters chased Health Minister Dave Chomiak to his office and forced the door open to dump letters inside. Doer said later the tactics of the protesters did little for their cause. “A protest is not going to change my mind,” he said. “I was a little disappointed in some of their tactics but that is their right and it wasn’t anything I couldn’t handle.” Winnipeg chiropractor Darrel Minuk said he didn’t expect the confrontation. “We’re not political animals here we’re just doing the best that we can,” he said. The province is reducing support for adult chiropractic services by 30 per cent and removing coverage for children’s chiropractic services completely as of July I. —Canadian Press Lotteries PICK 3 2,9,5 NO SCHOOL! - - GARBAGE DAY 1 CONTACT US Circulation........ .................727-0527 Switchboard.....

Hiscock, 29, was arrested earlier this month on an outstanding warrant and later charged with defrauding dozens of Brandon businesses four years ago. Businesses were bilked of $9,000 between April and May of 1998, according to police. In return for bad cheques, Hiscock was able to obtain groceries, merchandise and services. Hiscock was originally charged with 36 counts of fraud under $5,000. A number of charges were stayed. Crown attorney Jim Ross said he focused on incidents in which money was outstanding from local businesses. Other charges to which Hiscock pleaded guilty include breach of probation, breach of recognizance and uttering threats. Hiscock has been living in Saskatchewan. A pre-sentence report was ordered yesterday and Hiscock was remanded in custody. He will be sentenced July 29 in Brandon court. Province introduces tough fines for suspended drivers WINNIPEG — The estimated 20,000 Manitobans who get behind the wheel without a licence could end up in jail. The province introduced legislation yesterday to increase fines for suspended drivers and other traffic offenders. Bill 40 raises the maximum fine for suspended driving, careless driving and failing to stop for a police officer to $5,000. Previously, maximum fines for those offences under the Highway Traffic Act ranged from $200 to $1,000. A one-year prison term is also available for those convicted of suspended driving or failing to stop for a police officer. “We hope this will make a serious dent in getting those people off the street," said Government Services Minister Steve Ashton. — Canadian Press Brandon Sun’s Forecast i-900-$65-Weather Weather Bismarck p.cloudy Boston tstorms Chicago p.cloudy Dallas cloudy Denver tstorms Fargo p .cloudy Houston tstorms L Angeles p cloudy Miami tstorms New York tstorms Phoenix sunny S. Fran windy Salt Lake Cp.cloudy San Diego p cloudy Seattle rain Tucson pcioudy Washingtontstorms Long weekend will be hot CONTINUED FROM PAGE Al But paddle pools, which the YMCA operates for the city, don’t open until July 2. The Curran Park pool has been busy, attracting IOO swimmers a day since opening Saturday, thanks to the heat. “It brings the people out,” says Maxine Cyr, co-owner of the park. It’s also bringing out campers, although many of them are parking their hardshell trailers in serviced sites so they can run air-conditioning units, she says. The Weather Network is forecasting a high of 34 degrees for Brandon today and 35 degrees tomorrow. There will be moderate relief on Sunday, when the high is expected to be 30 degrees and on Canada Day, when the weather may once again hit 30. Complete weather details are contained in the Sun’s weather map at the bottom of the page. The humidex for Brandon yester day was 36 and expected to reach 38 today. Don Noto works harder when it heats up. He’s been averaging one new air conditioner installation a day and as many as eight service calls to units since it heated up two weeks ago. Extreme heat takes a toll on the units if not properly maintained, he says. “They just don’t produce the cold air like usual.” There’s another downside. Hot weather can potentially fuel an increase in domestic incidents and neighbourhood squabbles, says Brandon Police Chief Richard Bruce. Police haven’t noticed an increase yet, however. “It’s hot, you add alcohol to the mix and sometimes people are less tolerant.” It may be hot, but it’s a dry heat, sneaking in from Arizona, says meteorologist Jay Anderson. Lack of humidity allows air to cool off more quickly at night. HEAT EXHAUSTION Symptoms: Heavy sweating, weakness, skin cold, pale and clammy. Weak pulse. Normal temperature possible. Fainting, vomiting. First Aid: Get victim to lie down in a cool place. Loosen clothing. Apply cool, wet cloths. Fan or move victim to air-conditioned place. Give sips of water, lf nausea occurs, discontinue, lf vomiting occurs, seek immediate medical attention. HEAT STROKE (SUN STROKE) Symptoms: High body temperature (106+ F). Hot, dry skin. Rapid, strong pulse. Possible unconsciousness. Victim will likely not sweat. First Aid: Heat stroke is a severe medical emergency. Call 911 or get the victim to a hospital immediately. Delay can be fatal. Move victim to a cooler environment. Try a cool bath or sponging to reduce body temperature. Use extreme caution. Remove clothing. Use fans and/or air conditioners. Do not give fluids.
