Cracked tiles lead to pool shut down at leisure centre

MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT

BY SEAN PEARCE

A memorial baseball tournament will be held next month to honour the memory of YRP Const. Garrett Styles who was killed during a traffic stop last year.

Thanks to some fractured tiles, the pool area at the new leisure centre will be shut down for repairs next month. Localized tile fractures in the change rooms became evident not long after occupancy, the town explained via a media release last week. The tiles in question were replaced right away under the warranty provisions in the contract, but, over time, more tiles fractured and it was discovered that the problem extended into the pool area as well. Salter Pilon Architecture, the facility’s architect, and MHPM, its project manager, have worked out a solution with the contractor, Aquicon Construction, on the town’s behalf. As a result, the pool area will be closed for five weeks, from Sept. 1 to Oct. 8, to allow for the re-tiling of the pool deck and the floors in three of the facility’s change rooms. See page 8

Downtown Bradford was packed Saturday for Carrot Fest 2012. The event’s organizers estimate that more than 45,000 people came out to partake in the annual celebration of all things carrot. This year’s festival boasted more than 300 vendors and introduced two new busker pitches.

Carrot Fest 2012 draws big crowd BY SEAN PEARCE

spearce@thetopic.ca

Bradford was bustling Saturday as Carrot Fest 2012 took to the streets in the downtown core. All in all, this year’s event went extremely well, said the town’s leisure events and marketing programmer Joe Lotto. There were no major issues over the course of the day, he said, adding Carrot Fest 2012 was likely the biggest and best yet.

“Last year, we had about 45,000 people pass through, but we’re estimating that we had more than that this time around,” Mr. Lotto said. “The streets were absolutely packed until about 5 or 6 (p.m.) at least.” And there was no shortage of things for all of those people to see and do as Carrot Fest 2012

People came in droves to take in Carrot Fest 2012 From page 1.

definitely had something for everyone. More than 300 vendors were set up at booths along Holland Street and Barrie Street and the Bradford and District Memorial Community Centre played host to the Gable Bros. Midway, the Ontario DockDogs competition, wrestling and the Carrot Fest Artists Walk. On top of that, the main stage was the place to be to catch all sorts of talented acts from far and wide and wandering street performers also helped keep the crowds entertained. The two new busker pitches, in the Century 21 parking lot and out in front of the court house, were big draws as well, Mr. Lotto added. “Every year we try to improve it by doing something different,” he said. “This year we added the two new busker pitches and it seems like those were a big hit with people.” Thankfully, all of those people that flocked to this year’s Carrot Fest were apparently on their best behavior. South Simcoe Police reports that there were no incidents directly related to the event. “Carrot Fest was very quiet and uneventful. We did have paid duty officers at both beer tents,” Staff Sgt. Steve Wilson said. “There

were not any arrests directly attributed to Carrot Fest.” So, with another Carrot Fest in the books, what’s in store for 2013? “I haven’t given it much thought yet,” Mr. Lotto said, but noted that the planning for the next event always begins soon after the previous one ends. “For now, I’m just really happy to know that people enjoyed themselves. “Every year Carrot Fest seems to get busier.” Despite the fact Carrot Fest is over for another year, there’s still time to cast your vote for it as your favourite event in Canada as part of West Jet’s Fun‘N Festival Series competition. Already listed among the top 100 events in the province by Festivals and Events Ontario, Mr. Lotto is hoping that Carrot Fest can make its way into the top 10 in West Jet’s annual ranking of festivals across the country. “We’re still 12th in Canada and fourth in Ontario,” he said. “I was hoping we would jump higher in the rankings over the weekend, but I don’t know if people noticed the signs we had posted about it.” To cast your vote for Carrot Fest 2012 in West Jet’s 2012 Fun’N Festival Series competition visit festivals.westjet.com/ festival/2012/carrot-fest.

PEOPLE: Bradford singer’s performance earns semi-final berth

Local singer, 9, a rising star By Melanie Kerr

Nikita Riou may only be nine years old but she’s already a seasoned vocal competitor and is testing her chops for the second time as part of the Canadian National Exhibition’s annual Rising Star Competition. Last Friday, the aspiring singer competed in the junior preliminaries of the CNE’s yearly talent contest. Nikita’s family came out to cheer her on during her performance at Exhibition Place in Toronto and all of them are crossing their fingers that she makes it to the finals. “Nikita has performed in other singing competitions and has actually won second place, this is a great opportunity where she can challenge herself and gain experience,” said Nikita’s mother Adillia Riou. Nikita sang wonderfully during the first round, Ms Riou said earlier this week, and will now compete in the semi-finals to be held on Aug. 28. “She did really, really well,” she added. In the semi-finals, Nikita will once again be belting out Gershwins “Summertime” as made famous by Etta James. She has spent all summer practicing for the show and has been taking voice lessons for the past two years at an Aurora music school. “She’s going to keep with it,” Ms Riou said. “It’s a very powerful song.” Unlike many girls her age, this talented songstress, who has been singing since the age of four, hasn’t come down with Bieber-

Her rendition of Gershwin’s Summertime at the junior preliminaries earned her a spot in the semi-finals. fever and instead prefers the likes of Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra. “I really love songs from the olden days, there are so many that I love to sing, I can’t choose just one,” she said. When asked about stage fright Nikita said, “I enjoy singing so much that I barely get nervous.” For information about events taking place at the CNE visit www.theex.com.

World without cars? Maybe on my island

‘R

esolved: That the running of horseless carriages be prohibited within the limits of the village of Mackinac.” — Mackinac Island, Michigan, Village Council, July 6, 1898. Do you ever wonder what it would really be like to live in a place where there are no cars? Just bicycles, people on foot and maybe a better use of boats along the shoreline to get around? It’s this kind of utopian ideal many envision for pockets of downtown Toronto or main streets in the towns that surround the big city. You’d like to get an idea of how this would work but examples — short of going to a continent where the car is not ubiquitous thanks to basic poverty — are few and far between. I was lucky enough to go to a place where cars aren’t king over my summer vacation. It was fun for this tourist and fascinating from the perspective of the carless society. Mackinac Island, which is in Lake Huron, has lived apparently quite happily under an automobile ban since the early 1900s. The only acceptable modes of transportation other than good old shoe power are bicycles — of which there are hundreds for rent — and horses, whose calling cards add a certain odiferous quality to the air in the town core. The horses are pretty hard working, pulling everything from carriages filled with people to UPS courier wagons to big wagons collecting the garbage along the main streets, which are lined with fudge shops, restaurants and retail stores. The real way to get around, though, was by bicycle. We rented bikes for just $6 an hour. Mine was a Trek, one of the most comfortable two-wheelers I’ve ever ridden. It was an upright thing with padded seat that the rental guy picked out, no doubt using a mental checklist. (Old guy? Check. Doesn’t ride bikes much? Check. Back problems every six months? Check). It took us an hour-and-a-half to ride around the paved road on the

Bernie O’Neill perimeter of the island, which includes a state park, and my legs, back and behind hardly felt a thing. The funny thing was that it took me a while to relax and realize that no, a car was not coming up behind me on my left. No need to keep looking over my shoulder. No need to keep listening for that infernal combustion engine that never came. I can enjoy the scenery: trees, pebble beaches, clear water, fresh, horse-free air and beautiful old homes. Meanwhile, there was much civility among us cyclists, who made way for each other and passed with care. Maybe it’s because we were tourists. But maybe it was because the bicycle is more human in scale and, without cars around, everyone was relaxed and not in fear for their lives. Could this type of thing be replicated here in York Region? I know it’s unlikely. The advantage of the island is that it’s cut off from the world of cars by a sizable body of water, meaning an automobile ban can be enforced. But there is a beauty to the whole place that seems worth trying to replicate, even in an urban setting. To me, it’s not bike lanes beside roadways but rather bicycle paths through parks and forests, completely separated from cars, that are our best hope — something our towns and cities are working on now, at great cost and with sometimes mixed results. Although perhaps, after 100 years of automobiles, the horse is already out of the barn, so to speak, and only digging a moat around an entire town could keep the cars away.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Rules cut into cottage fun As the long weekend arrived, I realized it just isn’t the same as when I was young. Insidious and effective government regulation has changed the experience The government passed regulations to protect us from ourselves. What they’ve accomplished is a level of control to the point where cottage life isn’t quite the barrel of laughs it used to be. I’ll preface this with the fact I don’t disagree with all of the regulation, just most of it. Weekends now begin with jacked-up prices for gasoline, raised suspiciously on the Friday. The prices are accompanied by punitive government tax to ensure a miserable start. A trip to the beer or liquor store yields no bargains as regulation precludes competition, bargain prices or any decent sales. Graduated licensing regulates young drivers to certain times and with a regulated number of passengers. The long weekend police blitz ensures police are everywhere. Don’t even think of using a radar unit. It’s regulated and illegal. If you do manage to get the new Shelby or Corvette really rolling, the police now have regulations to actually impound it. The fines are enough to finance even more punishing surveillance. In my case, I managed to complete the 100-kilometre drive in just under four hours and was geared up for some real fun, just

like in the old days. We arrived at my friend Allen’s cottage and he calms me down and assures me the weekend will be great. First though, he advises me to move my car as I’m not allowed to park there. Regulations. OK Al, let’s take the ATVs for a spin. Allen asks us if we have helmets, licences and first aid training? Ah, no we don’t. OK, that’s out. Let’s go on the mini bikes. Oh, same deal. Bicycles? Sorry. Can we look at the trail? Al advises that we not chance that and try something else. In desperation and fearing my kids will soon slip back into the land of hand-held electronics, I spot the lake. Fishing. Allen asks if we have our fishing licences. Ah, no we don’t. OK, fishing is out. OK Al, can we take your new boat for a spin? Do I have a boating licence? No. All right, the Sea-Doo? Negative. The 9.9 HP embarrassingly small and unmanly fishing boat? Sorry. How about we just wade into the water? OK, but watch out for zebra mussels. We finally get the message fun has been regulated out of cottage life in Ontario, thank Allen and decide to hit the road. I need gas and prices are even higher in cottage country. I assume this is to finance continuing regulation.

Hungarian cookout goes back to basics By Jeremy Grimaldi

jgrimaldi@yrmg.com

there can be many vegetable choppers. Those interested and capable should be recruited to chop up an entire celery and three large carrots. Each should be congratulated with more palinka, according to Mr. Sarkozy. After 30 minutes of cooking, add 1-1/2 litres of water. Next, slow cook a cup of red wine, ideally Hungarian “bull’s blood”, and pour it in. The rest is consumed around the fire. Those still able are to cut five large potatoes into cubes. If you want your stew spicy, a spoonful of chilly paprika can be added. After about one more hour of cooking and testing the meat for preparedness, the stew is ready to serve along with a big loaf of white crusty bread and more wine. When you’re done the mouthwatering stew and all the alcohol in your belly has been soaked up, it is time once again to start drinking and making the ritual post-meal snack, called szalonnasütés, or bacon roasting. For this, a number of sticks are gathered and the tips sharpened to pierce thick bacon slices and a peeled onion. The drippings from this concoction are caught with bread. Once the bacon is slow roasted, it is sliced, placed onto the bread and, if done right, very heartily savored. Please enjoy responsibly and obey all local bylaws, where applicable.

There is nothing quite like taking it back to the old school — by that I mean the real old school, so old school that you could almost call it medieval. I’m referring to cooking outdoors, as our forefathers did, over an open flame. Ideally, in this case, it should be done near a river, beside a lake, underneath a tree or close to a forest. If all of this natural luxury is not available, a backyard will do. It also helps to be surrounded by your closest friends and relatives with plenty of booze handy, to help everyone appropriately STAFF PHOTO/JEREMY GRIMALDI grasp and delve into the old-fashionedness Cookouts have been part of Hungarian culof the event.

After that gets the “blood flowing”, the next step is to build a small fire surrounded by round stones. The soup, as any should, begins with olive oil and three large onions. Once the onions are sufficiently sautéed, three wooden spoons of dry Hungarian paprika, along with some salt and pepper, should be added. Next comes two pounds of chopped cubes of beef, three white Hungarian paprika peppers, two tomatoes and two cups of water. The next step must be undertaken with caution, bearing in mind the amount of palinka or flavoured vodka your friends have already ingested. Although there is only one man (always a man in Hungary) who holds the spoon, taste the soup’s preparedness, controls the ingredients and keep the wolves from the door,

The Bradford Lions Aquatic Centre as seen during the grand opening in May.

Pool to close this Saturday From page 1.

“The project team rejected a proposal from the general contractor to replace the areas only where the tile fractured, because it felt that if the trend continued, there could be multiple shutdowns of the aquatic centre,” said Ron Spina of MHPM in the release. Word of the temporary closure of the Bradford Lions Aquatic Centre comes mere months after the grand opening celebration for the new Bradford West Gwillimbury Leisure Centre held on May 25. The facility as a whole was originally expected to be finished by late December or early January, however, construction delays meant that the ice pads

and fitness centre weren’t ready until February, while the aquatic centre didn’t open until late April. In any event, the town’s director of leisure services, Tom Graham, said his staff would assist residents throughout the repair process. “The department of leisure services will be working co-operatively with pool users affected by the facility closure,” he said. “Information regarding adjustments to passes/memberships will be available at the leisure centre customer service desk. “Although this facility closure was not anticipated by the town, it is the best course of action to protect the town’s significant investment in this valuable community facility.“

Cook book fundraiser for plowing match your online source for FREE online coupons

Committee seeks recipes for cook book in support of 2014 event By Maija Hoggett

mhoggett@simcoe.com

We all have go-to recipes that never fail to impress when getting together with family and friends, and a local group is looking for residents to share the recipes for those dishes for a Simcoe County cookbook. The International Plowing Match (IPM) committee is gathering recipes to put together a fundraising cookbook with Simcoe County flavours. The cookbook is one of the biggest fundraisers for the IPM taking place in Essa in 2014. Any money raised over and above what the local IPM needs is donated back to Simcoe County charities. With strong agricultural roots in the county, Jeanette Bradbury, one of the cookbook organizers, is hoping to showcase the best the county has to offer. “For example if you’re a local farmer and grow strawberries and want to put in a great strawberry recipe, that would be great,” she said. She said the book will cover all the traditional areas: main dishes, desserts, salads, and soups. The committee is also hoping to include sections for special diets and allergies, such as egg-free, gluten-free recipes, peanut-

free, or those for diabetics. There is also going to be a special Kids Can Cook section, which is the kids’ chance to get their say in the cookbook. “It’s just easy little recipes they can make at home,” Ms Bradbury said. At this point, she said they’re looking for recipes in all categories, from appetizers to play dough. Recipes are being accepted until November. Ms Bradbury said the aim is to have cookbooks on sale by next spring or summer. Ideally, she said they’re hoping to receive 600 to 800 recipes for the book. If there are duplicates of recipes, she said both will likely be printed under different names. Recipe submission forms are popping up at various locations around the county, however you don’t need to get your hands on a form to submit. Being included is as simple as emailing your recipe to bradbury.ja@gmail. com, or mailing it to Jeanette Bradbury, 2nd Line, Cookstown, Ont., L0L 1L0. She asks that submissions include your name, where you’re from, category the dish should be in, and phone number (in case there are questions about the recipe). For children submitting recipes, they should include their name and age.

Passed away peacefully at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket, on Sunday August 19th, 2012 in her 78th year. Dorothy Clark McClure-always looking for the next landscape - circa 1958

Loving wife of late Richard (Dick) Illingworth, beloved mother of Kelly, Chris and Andrew, mother-in-law to Maria, and loving stepmother to Suzanne Bassett (Roger) and Rick Illingworth (Bernice). She was the phenomenal grandmother of Megan, Kaya and Emma McClure. She was one of Aurora's and York Region's most respected artists. She was honoured locally and provincially as an inspirational teacher, talented artist, and conservationist. Her work graces the homes of people here in Canada and across the globe. Over the years, Dorothy has appeared in hundreds of individual and group shows in the United States and Canada. She has been acknowledged in architectural books, and has been written about or helped write numerous publications. Her list of local, provincial and national awards and accolades are a testament to the way she always pursued her craft. In 1999, she was elected a signature member of the Colour and Form society. Other awards include many jury prizes; the Curtis Award of Excellence; the Arts and Culture Medal from the town of Aurora; the visual arts "In Celebration of Women" award from York Region; the Bicentennial Medal from the province of Ontario; and a Certificate of Achievement from the Ontario Heritage Trust. She was even named the Citizen of the Year for Aurora in 2008. As a leader, she took on such roles as President of the Historical Society and the Artisans of York, and was the Vice-President of the Willowdale Group of Artists. She was an art teacher for the York Region Board of Education, the Town of Aurora, Seneca College, the Haliburton School of the Arts, Georgina School of Fine Arts, Georgian Bay school of the Arts, the Senior's Centre, and at workshops all over the Greater Toronto Area. She founded the Aurora Senior's Art Group and its yearly show has been a source of great pride. She always believed in using and giving back the gifts she was blessed with. Her life, through her work, her students, her family and its own incandescent spark continues to touch the lives of all who knew her. Special thanks for all those caring people who visited, helped, loved and healed mom until the end. A memorial service will be held at the Thompson Funeral Home, 530 Industrial Parkway South (north east corner of Yonge St. & Industrial Pkwy. S.), Aurora, on Friday, August 24 at 2 p.m. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations to the Aurora Historical Society would be appreciated.
