Splatalot is a new kids game show that was filmed north of Shelburne in the summer/fall of 2010. It is a three round obstacle course that is designed like the show Wipeout. It was an interesting article to write, and one of the first articles I've written that required me to contact a major television program for contacts.

"With oversized props, cool special effects and lively characters, it's sure to be a highly-entertaining adventure." marblemedia has a production ranch just north of Orangeville where they will be producing Splatalot. "What we found is that by working in a smaller community outside of downtown Toronto that we just tend to have a greater ease of doing business," said Mr. Hornburg. "We're able to hire a lot of local people to be involved in the production and in this case both in front and behind the camera as we look to finding local kids who can appear in the show and compete for prizes." He commented that marblemedia is "looking for kids who want to be on television, are extremely enthusiastic, competitive, want to have a really fun great time and are willing to give it their all when they try and compete on this course." The game show is geared to the 8- to 12year-old audience. Water Softener & Purification Specialist 283 Broadway Orangeville Present coupon BUY ONE 18L U-FILL & RECEIVE SECOND FREE Splatalot will air on YTV in Canada, BBC in the U.K. and ABC in Australia with 26 episodes in the series. Three versions will be filmed and customized for the participating countries. Two hosts will be selected from all three countries' places to comment on the contestants' wipeouts and successes. "We're very excited to be working with our longtime partner, Corus Entertainment, as well as with our new partners at the BBC and ABC, on this first-time multi-broadcaster collaboration," said Mr. Hornburg. Each episode will feature a different group of 12 teen contestants seeking to come out on top of the competition. Contestants are dubbed Attackers, they will compete against each other in three different rounds: Cross the Moat, Storm the Castle and Steal the Crown. Six international, medieval-themes gladiators, The Defenders of Splatalot, will be doing everything in their power to protect the castle from the contestants- Attackers. "What is kind of unique about our show as it relates to the kid audience is the fact that there is a lot of physical comedy involving real kids who can compete for prizes on a challenge course that is really the biggest of its kind in Canada," said Mr. Hornburg. According to Mr. Hornburg, the obstacle course is "pretty big." In its entirety it stands just under four stories high and covers roughly 200 square feet. The production crew is currently in the process of designing and building all the props and obstacles. Participants will be running into some really abstract obstacles on this course. "We'd like for it to be a surprise, but what I can say is there are a lot of mechanical elements," said Mr. Hornburg. A lot of the elements of Splatalot are still in the planning faze, including the signature look. Mr. Hornburg commented that the costume at the present time is a hybrid of medieval theme and ensuring proper safety equipment for contestants. The obstacle course is "quite rigorous"; helmets and shoulder pads will be among the equipment worn by contestants. "Safety is our utmost priority as TV producers who have produced a lot of reputable shows for children in Canada," said Mr. Hornburg. "It's always our top priority." The show's creators have included a wide variety of aspects to safety. � Please turn to page A13 " EASILY ONE OF THE BEST " FILMS OF THE SUMMER!

Does this mean future phases of wind turbines? If you spoke to the Victims, and knew the truth; you would question Health Minister Arlene King's conclusions "No health problems" and you would support ArrranElderslie's wind turbine bylaw. "The bylaw uses Section 7 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which protects life, liberty and security of the person, in a bid to regain some municipal control over wind farms which was stripped away by the province's Green Energy Act. It says Developers must provide certificates issued by Health Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure, the Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of Natural Resources, Ontario Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs and a Local First Nations Representative, confirming that the proposed wind generation facility being applied for "will benefit, or will not harm, the health, safety and wellbeing" of residents before a building permit for a turbine is issued." If they sign, then they will be liable when, not if, health, safety and wellbeing problems surface. Wind Developers are looking for Councils who will not support the ArranElderslie wind turbine bylaw. Why is our health not of concern? Don't we deserve this by law as well? Are there any members of Council that support the Arran-Elderslie by law? I will keep this in mind at the next election. Joan Lever Melancthon office recently, anxious to respond to her grandson's plea for help and send $2,000 to a location provided over the telephone. The alert clerk thought something was fishy and suggested the woman contact police. As it turned out, she was one of three people, that police knew of, to be contacted in Grey and Bruce counties and subjected to the "Emergency Scam." This issue was visited before when the OPP, in cooperation with the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, issued a release last year to warn people about widespread reports of this scam. According the police, the modus operandi is to telephone a potential victim while posing as representing a family member or friend who is in urgent need of cash. Often the scenario involves an accident, arrest, hospitalization or imprisonment with a request that cash be sent through a money transfer company, such as Western Union or Money Gram or in the form of a postal money order. In recent variations, the messages have been sent via e-mail from hijacked email accounts. The three recent cases saw elderly females receiving telephone calls on Monday morning. In each case, the phone connection seemed poor, making voice recognition difficult. The callers identified themselves as a grandson, using a name blurted out by the intended victim as they attempted to decipher who was on the line. Two of the woman receiving the calls realized something was amiss and reported it, but a third actually went to the post office and was ready to send close to $2,000 to the 9:50 a.m. � 10:05 a.m. Paint the Town Green Pietra Velinor Self Energy Audit Orangeville Hydro Lending Program Program introduction Wrap-up Q&AQ Janina Lucci Green Pathways 10:05 a.m. � 10:30 a.m. A program offered by the Ontario Power Authority and the Power of 1 initiative through Orangeville Hydro LimitedOM.
