Mayoral candidates square off in debate

Transformation through art Daniel James Hill is a master of transformations. As a teenager, he went through a turbulent time, dropping out of high school and living on the street. He spent his days travelling and creating sculptures, selling them to make money. Much has changed since then for the Six Nations painter, who will exhibit his latest works at the Brantford Arts Block from July 30 to Aug. 31.

ith less than three months before the Oct. 25 municipal election, five of the nine candidates for mayor of Brantford squared off in a debate Wednesday night at the Knights of Columbus Hall. In attendance were Dianne Austin, James Calnan, Richard Casey, Mike Quattrociocchi and John Sless. Absent were Chris Friel, Mark Littel, Rob McDonald and Winston Ferguson. Moderator Andy Woodburn grilled the candidates on several topics, eliciting a range of responses when he asked how they would attract jobs to the community. “We have to start looking at ourselves as a region,” Sless said. “We have to talk to the county and we have to talk to Six Nations.” Calnan expanded on the point, saying the city can’t build relationships with its neighbours until it builds trust first.

<Continued from Front Page “Those opportunities aren’t going to happen until we can share services,” Calnan said. Casey said the city needs to diversify when it comes to economic development. “We can’t pigeon-hole ourselves,” he said. “If we have all our eggs in one basket and something goes wrong...we’ve seen what can happen.” Austin, a former executive director of the Brant United Way, said the city needs to do more for small businesses and the not-for-profit sector. “They employ thousands in our community and get left out a lot,” she said. Speaking last on the question, Quattrociocchi said other candidates answers were great, but he noted that the city needs to address the elephant in the room. “The native issues have sterilized development in Brantford,” he said. “You are not going to get any industries to come to Brantford after what happened to Kingspan. “We are fooling ourselves if we think we can get any industries here until the native issues are solved.” The mayoral candidates were also asked about the recent news that Brantford is the auto theft capital of Canada, according to Statistics Canada. “The numbers are misleading,” Casey said. “We’ve actually been declining in auto thefts and took the title because Win-

While he was explaining that tackling the auto theft problem would require increasing taxes, a car alarm went off in the parking lot. “There goes another one,” Sless said, to laughter from the audience. To a question on what should be done with a demolished south side of Colborne Street, Calnan said consultation with the community and Six Nations will be key. “There is a piece of ground in the south side that is a federally validated land claim,” he said. “Recognizing that will prevent problems in the future.”

organization. The debate was organized by the Brant Taxpayers Coalition. “The first time I officially heard about it was in a casual conversation with (moderator) Andy Woodburn when he called me (Tuesday) night,” Littell said. “I don’t think it’s fair to use the media and word of mouth to advise candidates of upcoming debates.” Friel also suggested there was problems with organization of the debate. “We didn’t find out about it until we read it in (the Brant News),” he said. Ferguson also said he had problems with organization of the debate and McDonald said he had a prior commitment.

F

ederal Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff talked issues when the “Liberal Express” made a stop in Brantford on Sunday. Ignatieff was the main attraction during the Brantford stop on the Liberal’s national bus tour, but party heavyweights including Sen. David Smith and health critic Carolyn Bennett were also in attendance at the Hungarian Hall on Park Road North. Brant Liberal candidate Lloyd St. Amand introduced the session as an unscripted and open forum. “And as you all know, open and unscripted doesn’t always happen with every party,” St. Amand said. After a brief speech, Ignatieff spent the better part of an hour and a half answering questions from some of the 200 people in attendance. On the war in Afghanistan, Ignatieff said the combat mission should rightly end in 2011, but that doesn’t mean Canada should turn its back on the country. “There is development, diplomacy and defence,” he said. “We’ve been too focused on the defence. The question is whether there is anything else we can do.” Ignatieff also touted home

We want to make childcare available to every family.” One questioner asked how Ignatieff would work to improve employment for the disabled, quoting figures that showed a drop from 15 per cent to six per cent employment during the past four years. “First off, I’d like to point out that you wouldn’t be able to ask that question without Statistics Canada and the long-form census,” Ignatieff said, noting the Conservative government’s recent decision to scrap the mandatory census. In answering the question Ignatieff said he would improve training and look to increase affordable housing, but St. Amand jumped in with his own response. “The current opportunities fund to help the disabled find employment is $30 million for 4 million disabled Canadians,” St. Amand said. “I would do all I can to make sure that opportunities fund is better than that.” To pay for many of the social programs Ignatieff was promoting, he said a Liberal government would look to scale back corporate tax cuts.

Jones bows out of municipal election Lauren Baron BRANT NEWS

C

ontroversial Catholic school board election candidate Peter Jones is ineligible to run in the upcoming municipal election, but it’s not because he isn’t Catholic. “I have discovered something that renders my religious status moot,” Jones said. Jones said he recently realized that he is designated as an English public school supporter, rather than an English separate school supporter, on his property tax assessment form. To run for the Catholic school board, the candidate must be a separate school supporter, said Rick Levac, co-ordinator of elections for the City of Brantford. Because of that fact, Jones

Peter Jones has decided to withdraw his nomination. “That’s going to be a real heartbreaker for the (Ontario) Catholic (School) Trustees Association and all the thousands they spent on that lawyer.” In June, the Brant-Haldimand-Norfolk Catholic District School Board and the Ontario Catholic School Trustees Association challenged Jones’ eligibility

based on previous comments he made saying he was not Catholic. Jones insists that he is Catholic and produced a baptismal certificate to prove it. He was running on a platform to abolish separate school boards in Ontario. Jones said he was unaware of his designation as an English public school supporter when he filed his nomination papers to run for trustee. “As I am not one to break the law by knowingly making a false declaration, I have no choice but to withdraw as a candidate and hope that no civil or criminal penalties are visited upon me,” he said. Jones recently received a letter from the city clerk’s office asking him for a formal response to concerns laid out by the school board and trustees association.

cork

“I think it’s a mistake on the part of the city,” Jones said. “I am being asked to prove I’m Catholic, so I am indeed being treated differently.” Jones said he would not be responding to the city clerk’s office because he worries it would be forwarded to officials in the Roman Catholic Church for scrutiny. “I will not voluntarily allow my legal status to be determined by this grotesquely corrupt institution,” he said. “I would much prefer that the courts rule on my eligibility should my nomination be rejected.” Jones intends on asking courts to determine whether the municipal election is valid because other trustee candidates, voters and ratepayers are not asked to provide proof of their Catholicity.

she was a child and is now part of the organizing committee that co-ordinates the festivities. “I’ve seen it grow over the years,” Burning said. “For me, it’s about visiting and reacquainting with friends.” The Champion of Champions Pow-wow pitted 340 competitors against each other in categories ranging from youth to senior dancers. Music for the dances was provided by eight drumming groups. For Burning and many others in attendance, the music provided by drum-

ming groups and singers was powerful. “The drums are just like your mother’s heart beat,” Burning said. The music of the drumming groups not only provided drive for the dancers, but inspired movement in many spectators. Ernesto Guida travelled to the pow-wow from Toronto. Guida is originally from Uruguay and a member of the Charrua, indigenous to South America. “I’m always interested in this because it’s part of us,” he said.

Agreement struck on Grand River Avenue housing development Sean allen BRANT NEWS

A

candidate for city council appealing plans for an apartment complex on Grand River Avenue is satisfied with changes the developer has made and the two sides have agreed on a settlement to avoid an Ontario Municipal Board hearing. Mary Ellen Kaye, an advocate for the group Keep Our River Public and Ward 1 candidate in the municipal election, won over developers Salmona Tragunno and Napev Construction on key points that triggered her appeal.

Children in need of treatment

n many areas of the world access to dental care for children simply does not exist. We here in Canada however are fortunate that safety nets have been put in place to help reduce the suffering that can come with financial hardship. In Ontario, one of those safety nets is aimed at ensuring all children have access to basic dental care. It is called the Children in Need of Treatment program, or CINOT. The CINOT program is a par tnership between the Ontario government, municipal health units and participating dentists. CINOT provides urgent and essential dental

have no dental insurance. Basic care such as diagnostic xrays, fillings, extractions, and some root canal treatment is covered while more elective services such as braces are not. In order to enroll in the program, children must first be seen and have treatment approved by the Dental Services staff from the Health Unit. Our Health unit is proactive in that it sends hygienists out to the schools to screen children as a service to our community. While children may enter the program through the school screenings, anyone who is concerned about their child can take them down to

“It’s about public access to the trails and congestion from vehicular traffic,” Kaye said. The developers have agreed to three things: Building an access point to the trail system wide enough for an emergency vehicle, installing a bus stop and shelter at a cost of $12,500 before the property is half occupied and distributing bus schedules and information as part of marketing new homes. When the city approved the zoning bylaws to allow 136 apartments in a pair of six-storey buildings surrounded by 24 townhouses almost two years ago, Kaye and city resident Tim Sywyk

both appealed the decision to the OMB. Sywyk withdrew his appeal during pre-hearing conferences. The hearing was scheduled for two days at city hall starting on Monday morning, but the lawyer for the developers, Robert Jarvis, stood in front of Marc Denhez from the OMB and announced the news. “I think we have a settlement, sir,” Jarvis said.

Jarvis said the developers began negotiations with Kaye and planners from the city about a week ago. “It came down to reducing traffic impact and having an access point from Grand River Avenue to the dike,” Jarvis said. Jarvis said his clients, Kaye and representatives from the city all agreed to the solutions. Jarvis said it could be several years before there is any activity on the property – a former Penman’s textile factory – as the developer arranges financing and goes through site plan approval. Kaye said she is satisfied with the outcome. “That would be too much traffic congestion for an older neighbourhood,” she said. “If we can encourage more people to use public transit, it will help.”

An open house amid uncertainty

CINOT provides urgent and essential dental care at no cost for children from low income families. care at no cost for children from low income families for whom the cost of dental care would otherwise be unaffordable. Until recently the program covered only elementary school aged children. However, as of this past January the program was expanded to include children up to their 18th birthday. It will now also provide out-of-hospital general anesthesia coverage for children age five to 17 who need to be put to sleep for their dental treatment. Children are eligible to be enrolled in the program if they have cavities, pain, infection, bleeding gums or injury to their mouths, and they can not afford dental care and

ORE ONLINE! brantnews.com ID Tag: 8350 brantnews.com ID Tag: T 8350 thing,” museum chairman Rick Shaver said. “The city’s been very closed-mouth with us.” A lease agreement was to be signed with the city to keep the military museum in its current home on the Greenwich-Mohawk brownfield until a new facility was ready as part of brownfield redevelopment. But efforts to finalize the document have been fruitless. Complicating the agreement is the fact that Terrasan, the development company that will take ownership of the 52-acre brownfield, needs to be included in the deal. Complicating the agreement further is the fact that the city has yet to sign a development agreement with Terrasan to begin work on the brownfield remediation project. Shaver is not too concerned about the museum’s future, as he is sure city councillors recognize it as an asset, but he is getting frustrated with the process. “I’m just about ready to throw in the towel,” he said. “It’s been a little nerve wracking.” The museum has been operating without a formal lease agreement with the city since its inception. A draft of a lease went to city council for approval in February, but it was turned down and a committee of council was struck to rework the deal. Coun. Dan McCreary said the committee has made some progress, but recent suggestions that the city may dissolve any deal with Ter-

rasan have him worried. “We have a number of councillors who don’t think we’ve made adequate progress on this brownfield to ensure their re-election so they want to take on the project without the private sector,” McCreary said. “Turning this project into a political football puts the military museum at risk.” At its last meeting before council took a break for the month of July, several councillors – including Marguerite Ceschi-Smith and Richard Carpenter – expressed a desire to get on with the Greenwich-Mohawk redevelopment with or without Terrasan. After a closed-door meeting, councillors would only say they were waiting for a staff report on the subject. Shaver has been following the Greenwich-Mohawk stories in the news and said he has his own concerns with Terrasan. “I can’t get them to respond to me,” he said. “In the lease, they wanted to be partially in control. Right from the beginning, I haven’t been pleased with Terrasan.” Shaver is looking forward to city council making some kind of decision on where to go with Terrasan’s proposal. “That’s when I think we will find out a bit more about our future,” he said. In the meantime, the Greenwich Street museum is hosting an open house on Aug. 1 to celebrate its 16th year in operation. The free event will feature displays, re-enactors, a barbecue and more. “(It’s) a great way to meet with the community and to give recognition to our past, present and future soldiers.”

BRANTFORD – Brantford police have laid charges against a 57-year-old Burford man following a complaint of sexual assault from a 15-year-old girl. It is alleged that the man texted the victim on March 13 at about 3 a.m. and arranged to pick her up in Brantford. The victim knew the man, police said. The girl and a 14-yearold friend were taken to Mohawk Street, where they were provided with cigarettes and marijuana. Police allege the 15-year-old girl was fondled. The girls were then dropped off. There was no physical contact alleged with the second girl. The 57-year-old was charged with sexual assault, sexual interference and luring a child via the internet or computer.

BRANTFORD – The first candidate into Brantford’s Ward 2 municipal election race has withdrawn from the election. John Cousins filed his nomination papers on Jan. 8, but has been relatively quiet since declaring his intentions. He did not take part in a recent ward debate. Cousins’ withdrawal brings the number of candidates down to six. Vince Bucci, Scott Challe, James Ellis, Mary O’Grady, Rick Wright and John Utley are still in the running.

BRANTFORD – An 18-yearold Brantford resident is facing several charges, including possession of marijuana, after being caught by Brant County OPP officers Sunday night. An officer approached a parked car on Oak Park Road. While speaking to three male occupants, the officer could smell a strong odour of marijuana. The officer located marijuana in the possession of an 18-year-old in the vehicle, who was already facing unrelated charges.

Can city golf operations chip in? Millard review suggests simplifying money-losing golf operations (The following is the third story in a three-part series examining business plans for the city-owned Brantford Municipal Airport, Brantford Farmers’ Market and municipal golf operations.)

n independent review of the business plan proposed by Brantford’s golf management board finds it to be a little ambitious, but the chair of the golf board is confident Northridge and Arrowdale can overcome hurdles that have the public courses losing money. “We are trying to increase revenues and reduce our operating expenses wherever possible,” said golf board chair John Utley. At the request of Coun. Richard Carpenter, business plans were prepared with the intention of moving municipal golf operations, the Brantford Municipal Airport and the Brantford Farmers’ Market toward financial independence from the city. The total deficit from all three operations totalled almost $700,000 in 2009.

John Utley of revenues in 2009, which Millard said is well above the industry standard of 40 per cent. Millard said over-staffing, year round employees for a seasonal operation and the city’s collective bargaining agreement account for the higher percentage.

“We are trying to increase revenues and reduce our operating expenses wherever possible.” Golf board chair John Utley gests enhanced marketing to increase use, reducing costs during the off-season, downsizing or eliminating banquet services, outsourcing jobs to reduce wage costs and reviewing overhead and fleet charges from the city. Utley said overhead and fleet charges from the city have been an issue of contention. Overhead charges include the cost of city staff time and resources that golf operations consume, Fleet charges include items such as vehicle use and insurance. “We’ve looked at those very closely and believe they are excessive,” Utley said. Fleet charges in 2009 accounted for about $168,000, while overhead charges from the city were $228,000,

Accounting for the vast majority of that deficit, the city’s two golf courses lost just shy of $500,000 last year. For 2008 and 2009 combined, the deficit for golf operations was more than $1 million. Financial auditors from Millard, Rouse and Rosebrugh have put the three business plans through a third-party review. The Millard review found some issues with the business plans for both the market and airport. The proposal from golf operations raised even more questions. “Why do all of the options include adding other sports and expanding when the existing operations have failed to meet budgets or break even on costs?” the report asks. “Why not close one course? Is there a future plan for Arrowdale? Has outsourcing services to the private sector been considered?” The business plan recommends offering only basic golf services at Arrowdale and expanding the 18-hole course Northridge, including course modifications and investigating opportunities for a multi-use facility at the site. The Millard review takes issue with the expansion proposal. “We question the appropriateness of the proposed expansion when the goal is to reach break even,” the report said. “The cost of making significant changes … will without doubt, increase costs.” Utley said the golf board is looking at all options to trim the deficit, but the single biggest cost of operation is something the board has no control over. “Wages are a huge issue,” he said. “We have no control over that at all, so we have to look at other ways to reduce our costs.” Wages for employees at Northridge and Arrowdale accounted for 62 per cent

together representing 80 per cent of the $500,000 deficit. Utley said a lot of those charges are necessary, but he believes some changes could bring them down significantly. Considering there are over 20 golf courses within a half-hour drive from Brantford, Coun. John Bradford believes that offering two municipal courses is a discretionary service the city cannot afford. “There is another model that would allow golf to be successful,” he said. Bradford mentioned the municipality of Elliot Lake in Northern Ontario. “They turned it over to a management company and it’s been in the black ever since,” he said. Bradford said Northridge could be turned into development land and the city could still offer golf at Arrowdale. “That would cut our costs and increase our revenues as a city,” he said. Utley, however, believes that $1.25 million in capital money that council already approved for Northridge will go a long way to improving revenues. “We got great value out of our consultants for Northridge’s master plan,” he said. “There is enough money for a new irrigation system, improved course and a full-size practice range.” Utley said the driving range would be a big money maker. But Bradford noted the $1.25 million was not approved by council as a lump sum and that the money is doled out $250,000 at a time during the city’s budget process. “Now is the time to revisit this,” he said. As for reducing off-season costs, Utley said part of the business plan is to take a serious look at moving to an eight-month operation. The business plans and the Millard review have been sent to staff to look at options. A report is not expected back until after the municipal election in October.

our brothers have reunited for the first time in over 40 years to return a family heirloom to Brantford. Ted, Bob, John and Norman Allen have recently located their uncles “death penny,” a small bronze plaque that was given to a fallen soldier’s next of kin during the First World War. On Tuesday, they donated the penny to Brantford’s Canadian Military Heritage Museum. “Our kids coming up today, they don’t understand it,” Norman said. “(At the museum), people can appreciate it.” The penny had been lost since 1937, when the Allen family moved out of their Dalhousie Street home. Since then, Ted has moved to nearby Vanessa, Ont., Bob has left for Missouri and Norman moved to Arizona. John is the only brother who stayed in Brantford. Because the brothers are scattered across North America, they decided the museum was the best possible place for the artifact. The penny is in honour of their uncle, Lionel Arthur Singleton Allen, who died on Sept. 30, 1918, during

his time overseas in the Canadian Infantry. He was a lieutenant at the time of his death. “When we were kids, I remember looking for it,” Norman said. “It always meant a lot to us.” The penny always intrigued the brothers and Norman set out to look for it a few years ago, following the death of their older sister. He spoke to his niece about it in 2006 and she said she’d never seen it before. “She said: ‘Norm, I haven’t gone through mother and dad’s belongings,’ but lo and behold a week ago she called,” Norman said. She mailed the penny using overnight delivery to Norman, since he was scheduled to leave for Brantford only a few days later. “This is where he originated, so we thought we’d leave it here,” Norman said.

County seeks funding to expand rural high-speed internet access

ayor Ron Eddy says the municipality is a bit behind the times, but that it’s certainly not too late to get moving on expanding high-speed internet access in the County of Brant. “It’s a very important project,” Eddy said. “A lot of the people still can’t get high-speed internet.” County council approved a motion this week to submit a grant application to the provincial Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs for funding to build infrastructure that would allow county-wide access to

high-speed internet service. “Several other counties already have programs in place,” Eddy said. “It’s absolutely necessary we get moving on this.” The Rural Connections Broadband Program provides one-third funding of up to $1 million for projects that expand internet access in rural areas. Since the program allows the cost of existing infrastructure and in-kind services to be counted toward the total cost, the county’s director of corporate services, Fran Bell, estimates that by providing $334,000 from county coffers, the municipality could leverage $516,000 from the province for the project.

The cables would then be routed south from Burford to serve as a redistribution point for southern portions of the county. Read more online at www.brantnews.com.

The gift of our neighbours

W

ith land claims disputes and protests dominating the city’s relationship with Six Nations in recent years, an event that brings local native and non-native communities together is welcome relief. The Champion of Champions Pow-wow, held on the banks of the Grand River at Six Nations last weekend, is one such event. For two days, the people of Six Nations welcomed visitors to their territory for a colourful display of native culture. As well as dazzling traditional dance competitions featuring impressive costumes and performances, the pow-wow highlighted the work of talented native artisans, who displayed discussed and sold their works to some of the thousands in attendance. More than 300 native dancers from across North America, as well as singing and drumming groups, gathered at Chiefswood Park for the pow-wow, which has become a major tourist attraction during its 31-year history. As anyone who attended last weekend can attest, the event is a destination for visitors from around the globe. It probably wasn’t lost on some local residents who attended that the atmosphere at the pow-wow is as far removed from disputes over land claims and grievances with government as one could get. The pow-wow offers a sharing between cultures and an opportunity to build understanding in a welcoming atmosphere. These opportunities are more important now than ever, considering the political climate between governments and our Six Nations neighbours. And the pow-wow is important for other reasons, too. Most life-long Brant residents knows there is a stigma attached to the Six Nations reserve. It’s a sad truth, but many of you reading this likely know someone who might be hesitant about visiting or even driving through the reserve. Those long-standing fears need to be erased once and for all and events like Champion of Champions Pow-wow go a long way to helping accomplish that goal. As recent years have proven, it will be small steps that eventually bring us to a common understanding. Despite the negative headlines, protests and disputes over land claims, local native and non-native residents have nothing to fear about each other, only much to learn from each other. Building understanding through a sharing of cultures can only lead to a better and brighter future in Brant, free of the fear that continues to exist between our native and nonnative communities. Events like the pow-wow are also a reminder to non-native residents of the rich history and culture that lies right beyond our doorsteps. The history and culture of Six Nations put a focus on peace, respect and stewardship of the Earth we share. That’s something all Brant residents can learn from and a gift to us, if we are willing to accept it.

Let’s give a big round of applause for the movers and shakers whose vision, tenacity and passion fuelled the engine to make this happen, the Brant Waterways Foundation. Thanks to John Wheat, chair of the county’s parks and recreation committee, and committee members for hearing, envisioning and

supporting the campaign to expand trail uses and users, build a healthier community, and encourage a safe, active trail transportation system. Thanks to Mayor Ron Eddy, county council members and staff for their willingness to embrace Brant Waterways Foundation’s vision and acknowledge the community’s efforts to collectively champion the cause. Thanks to the residents and volunteers who invested time, energy and enthusiasm to generate synergy, which regenerated old friendships and established new ones, developed a renewed sense of community, pride, unity and quality of life.

Thanks to all petitioners and local businesses who supported the campaign. Thanks to the media for “spreading the news.” The media covered the campaign, raised awareness and generated positive feedback from the public. And thanks to everyone for making our rail trail a part of your life. Gail Daviault

some cans for the trash, please It seems to me that based on the cost of the nine nice plants on the median between Brant Avenue and the hospital, it would be a great

idea and extremely inexpensive to install a couple of litter receptacles. We live at the corner of Brant and St. Paul avenues and are constantly picking up coffee cups, fast food containers and soda cans that are unceremoniously left near our fence, just a few feet from a bus stop. There is way too much litter on St. Paul Avenue. If there were litter receptacles at bus stops, the irresponsible ones – who are counteracting the work of the people who plant the median each spring – might be prompted to deposit their waste in an appropriate place.

ounty of Brant councillors will decide on Aug. 10 if keeping the Syl Apps Community Centre open beyond completion of the county’s new twin pad arena is an acceptable plan.

revenue generating or at least break even, it won’t get passed by council,” Coun. Shirley Simons said at a repositioning committee meeting on Thursday. Parks and facilities manager Darin Ayres has prepared a draft business plan that would see the building operate without taxpayer dollars over a 15year period, despite $500,000 in planned capital upgrades. The business plan shows a facility with a $125,000 artificial turf for soccer use between October and April, with Sport Court flooring for the balance of the year. Sport Court flooring is plastic and adequate for playing a variety of sports.

The business plan builds in debt payback in order to cover the costs of capital upgrades like new roofing, netting and purchasing turf. Coun. Murray Powell said several soccer groups from Brantford, including the Brantford Galaxy, have expressed interest in the artificial turf option, but Coun. Cliff Atfield said he would rather stick with Sport Court flooring year round. “Of course soccer would prefer turf, but we don’t always get what we prefer,” Atfield said.

he Ontario Catholic School Trustees Association and the Brant-HaldimandNorfolk Catholic District School Board want a controversial candidate declared ineligible for nomination in the municipal election because they say he is not Catholic. Peter Jones is running for Catholic school board trustee on a platform to abolish separate school boards in Ontario. Jones believes it is a violation of human rights to have publicly funded religious education and that amalgamating public and Catholic boards makes sense. A letter sent to the city clerk’s office through lawyers for the OCSTA and the BHNCDSB contains a list of reasons why they believe Jones is not Roman Catholic. “Based on comments that Mr. Jones has made, there is reason to believe that he may not be eligible to run,” said Kevin Kobus, executive director of the OCSTA.

regarded as one of the greatest inventors of all time.” It was in 1910 that the Bell Homestead opened its doors to the public after the Bell Telephone Memorial Association purchased the property and deeded it to the city for use in perpetuity as a public parkland and memorial. One hundred years later, Onley, as the Queen’s representative in Ontario, rededicated the homestead for the same purpose. Due to his partial paralysis from polio, Onley is known as a champion for accessibility, a quality he noted in Bell. “He always said he was prouder of his teachings to the deaf,” Onley said. “In this way, he was far ahead of his time. I salute this man not only as an inventor, but as a man who promoted accessibility for all.” The weekend started on Friday with readings of selected letters from the Bell family. On Saturday afternoon, there was a ceremony to honour the sculptor of Brantford’s Bell Memorial, Walter Seymour Allward. A dinner at the Market Square Mall and concert at the Sanderson Centre were held Saturday evening. Sunday featured worship services at Farringdon Church, where the Bell

he creator of some of Canada’s most significant memorial sculptures both at home and abroad has been officially named a person of national historic significance. Walter Seymour Allward (1876-1955) was recognized during a ceremony on Saturday at Grace Anglican Church in Brantford. Across the street from the church, rain was pouring on one of Allward’s earliest and most significant works: The Bell Memorial. “The Bell Memorial is one of his most noted artistic accomplishments,” said Richard Alway, chair of the committee that recommended the designation. “Today, we draw Walter Seymour Allward to the attention of all Canadians.”

The Toronto resident was the sculptor of many cenotaphs – including Brantford’s – and war memorials across Canada and around the world, perhaps none more famous than the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in France. Because of the tie in with Alexander Graham Bell, the ceremony was held in conjunction with a weekend of Bell Homestead centennial celebrations. “Before there was Allward of Vimy fame, there was Allward of Bell Memorial fame,” said Evan Habkirk, of the Bell Homestead. Mayor Mike Hancock and MP Phil McColeman expressed pleasure that a historic plaque honouring Allward would be located in Brantford. “We are deeply honoured to have such a wonderful monument in our city, by such a prolific sculptor,”

Hancock said. McColeman called the Bell Memorial inspiring. “This strikingly beautiful art-deco monument is as perfect a tribute to Dr. Bell as can be expressed in granite and bronze.” Air Force officer Lt.-Col. Scott Allward, the sculptor’s great grandson, attended the dedication ceremony. “This is a privilege for our family,” he said. “All the work that (Walter) ever did was to make people remember a person, event or a loss. He accomplished that with the Bell Memorial.” The commemorative plaque reads in part: “many of his works, including the Bell Memorial, combine expressive classical figures with dramatic settings. With his original sense of spatial composition, his mastery of classical form and his brilliant craftsmanship, Allward created works of enduring beauty.” After an unveiling, the plaque was affixed to a post in front of the Bell Memorial.

Rebels face elimination

at Ohsweken Speedway World of Outlaws sprint car series returns for two-day event TOM KENNEDY BRANT NEWS

O

hsweken Speedway owner Glenn Styres may be bruised and battered, but that won’t stop him competing in the World of Outlaws this weekend. The sprint car racer had a bad crash two weeks ago during an event at Ohsweken and still carries the black and purple bruises on his arms and chest. Regardless of the reminders of the dangers of racing, Styres wouldn’t miss the World of Outlaws for anything. Ohsweken Speedway will become a festival of speed and intensity this weekend as about 10,000 spectators flock for the annual World of Outlaws event. The World of Outlaws is an American sprint car tour that travels to about 80 race events a year, but only ventures north twice, one of them being to hit the Ohsweken Speedway tracks for two days. Jeff Ross of Ohsweken Speedway said he expected a large crowd to gather Friday and Saturday for what he

described as “controlled mayhem.” “Sprint cars are unguided missiles,” Ross said. “There’s nothing else like them. It’s pretty impressive to see these guys manhandle these cars around the track.” This will be the third year Ross has seen the Outlaws take over the track at Six Nations and said each year

championships under the hood in his 30 years of racing. On top of the actual racing, the speedway becomes an enthusiasts’ dream as the pit gates open early each day for fans to check out the cars and meet the stars. “Not only do the outlaws bring their own show, but they bring their own core people too,” Ross said. “It’s a real festival atmosphere. It’s a really charged, positive weekend.” The World of Outlaws series hits Ohsweken Speedway this Friday, with gates opening at 4 p.m., a practice round at 6:30 p.m. and the first race starting at 7:45 p.m. The schedule is the same for Saturday and tickets cost $35 for adults, $20 for children 12 and under and camping costs $10 a day.

Members of the Brantford Galaxy held an autograph session at the Lynden Park Mall Saturday to support the Arnold Anderson Kidsport foundation for underpriveleged youth. Proceeds from sales of Galaxy merchandise went toward the local foundation as fans came out to meet the Canadian Soccer League stars.

he Brantford Red Sox have blasted the lacklustre Hamilton Thunderbirds yet again in their opening Intercounty Baseball League best-of-seven series. Following a 13-2 win over the Thunderbirds in Hamilton on Sunday, the Red Sox took a 2-0 lead in the series with a dominating 11-2 win at Arnold Anderson Stadium on Tuesday. All the elements came together Tuesday night as the Sox put their bats, bullpen and field to work with convincing success, but field manager Adam Clarke said they wouldn’t take the T-Birds for granted until the series was over. “We’re not getting ahead of ourselves,” Clarke said. “We come out every game ready to play.” The Thunderbirds had a desirable start to the game when Graeme Carey slammed a home run over left field to tally the first run of the game in the second inning. While it was a good start, it wasn’t nearly enough,

as the visitors didn’t score again until the ninth and the Sox answered the call with four runs of their own in the second. Sox Tyler Patzalek, Josh McCurdy (2) and Chris Emanuele batted runners in during the bottom of the second to take a 4-1 lead, but the home team didn’t let up, scoring through Jason Gotwalt and Tyler Burnell in the third. They went on to benefit from a significant infield collapse in the fifth and sixth innings, adding a further five runs when wild pitches and errors allowed Sox base runners to make it to the home plate. While Red Sox starting pitcher Mike Meyers had a stellar performance, throwing 12 strikeouts in seven

innings, the Thunderbirds suffered terrible woes in the bullpen, rotating through five pitchers and recording just one strikeout between them. Clarke wasn’t thinking about the poor performance from the opposition though, rather relishing in the momentum his team captured at the end of the regular season and carried into the opening round of the playoffs. “Right now we’re playing great baseball,” he said. “We’ve had opportunities to get everyone in, which is what we need. “With a team like us, if you give us extra outs like that, we’re going to take advantage of it.” The Red Sox faced the Thunderbirds again on

Mike Gottschalk (three innings) – Three walks, seven hits against, six ERA. Doug Chrysler (2.1 innings) – Three hits against, three walks. Jordan Windisch (.2 innings) – One hit against. Mike Fortuna (one inning). Nino Fasula (one inning) – One walk, one strikeout.

Chiefs bring ‘playoff faces’ to rock Ajax tom kennedy BRANT NEWS

T

he Six Nations Chiefs proved Monday they can earn a win without bringing their best game to the floor. The Chiefs may have opened their best-of-seven series against the Ajax-Pickering Rock with an 8-6 win in the Major Series Lacrosse playoffs at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena, but coach Rich Kilgour said they would need to improve as the series progressed. “We came out with our playoff faces on in the first period, but Ajax packed in their defence after that,” Kilgour said. “This is playoffs and I’ll take a win any day, but we need to maintain our game face for 60 minutes.” The Chiefs came out strong in the first period, allowing an early goal before answering with four of their own. However, Kilgour said their strong offence in the first pushed his players into cruise mode in the second, which gave the Rock a chance to close the gap to 6-4 by the end of the second. While the Chiefs were

intent on driving the ball quickly down the floor and then taking time to set up strong scoring chances, the Rock took a different approach and relied heavily on quick transitions and counter attacks. The Rock had some strong chances to take the lead in the second, but Chiefs goalie

Jake Henhawk held firm in net for most of the period. The Chiefs opened the third with an early goal before the Rock fired back with two of their own within three minutes, closing the gap to 7-6 in the Chiefs favour. The home team advanced their lead to 8-6 with a goal midway through the third,

a lead they were able to maintain. Their goals were scored by Colin Doyle, Tom Montour, Kim Squire (2), Roger Vyse, Rob Marshall and Delby Powless (2). The Chiefs next home game is Thursday at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena at 8 p.m.

Brandon Dailey enjoying time at world juniors Local baseball player competing with Team Canada TOM KENNEDY BRANT NEWS

B

randon Dailey has a lot to think about over the summer but to date hasn’t really had a chance to do so. The 18-year-old short stop needs time to digest whether he should play minor ball with an affiliate of his Major

League Baseball draft team the Cincinnati Reds, or pick up his NCAA Division 1 scholarship with Ohio University. But his schedule has been more than full as he is currently with Team Canada at the 2010 IBAF World Junior Baseball Championships. “I’m still undecided what I want to do,” Dailey said on the phone from Thunder Bay. “That is something I will be thinking about when I come home.” Dailey and his Canadian teammates have had a strong tournament so far, with

Brandon Dailey three wins and one loss, and the local star has already experienced a lot that he will be adding to his own personal highlight reel. “This is definitely a once in a lifetime experience,” he said. “It’s definitely an environment like nothing else.

I’ve seen a lot of this type of competition before, but the atmosphere is different.” The under-18 tournament features two pools of six teams, with each playing five pool games before advancing to elimination rounds. Eliminations begin Friday, with the winners advancing finals on Saturday and gold and bronze medal games on Sunday. Canada’s pool consists of Cuba, South Korea, Netherlands, Panama and Czech Republic. Also in the tournament are U.S.A, Chinese Taipei, Italy, Australia,

A DIVISION OF

Venezuela and France. The championships are held once every two years, with the last tournament won by South Korea, followed by the U.S. and Cuba. Dailey said Canadian fans have been attending in droves, with the least attended game being around 3,000 and the most being about 4,500 to see Canada versus Cuba. The right-handed infielder has been playing third base for Canada, in his first appearance at the tournament, and has been making the most of it, including hitting a

three-run home run during a 9-2 victory over the Netherlands. 2010 is the 24th fixture of the tournament and while Canada has hosted the championships on half of those occasions, it has only won gold once before, in 1991. However, Dailey said there is a belief amongst the team that they can make an impact this year. “As of right now, we can definitely compete with anyone,” Dailey said. “We should be up there for sure. “Obviously I want to win gold in front of Canadian fans.”

Chasing a national ATV title David Stanley has sights set on 2010 ATV Canada Cup TOM KENNEDY BRANT NEWS

W

hile other families may be cottage bound this long weekend to enjoy some lake-side activities, Brantford’s David Stanley and his father Brad will be up north for a different kind of fun. The kind of fun that promises the mud, dust, sand and sweat of competitive ATV racing, as nine-yearold Stanley competes in one of 100 races of his summer season in the thumper and mini-peewee classes. Stanley has been racing ATVs since he was four years old, and quickly discovered he had a natural knack for flinging his vehicle around the muddy, motocross-style tracks in

pursuit of victory. “I want to win the provincial and Canada Cup series,” Stanley said. Stanley currently rides a Kymko factory ATV, built specially for him by the racing company, and races at the 50 and 90 CC levels, sometimes travelling upwards of 50 km/h on the track and getting four feet of air off the jumps. In his five years of competition he has won many awards, including two national titles and two provincial championships in last year’s competition. While the trophies are nice to have, it’s the rush of flying past his opponents or sending his ATV high over jumps that he enjoys most about the sport. “I like the jumps because you go really high when you hit them,” he said. “Sometimes when I go around a turn I get up on two wheels and it gives me a little scare, but after that I’m good.” With last year’s provincial and Canada Cup trophies on display in his house, Stanley is hoping he can rise to the top of the pack again this

year. This season, as with every other year, he and his family must travel all over Ontario almost every second weekend to compete. The provincial and national titles are based on points, with riders earning points for their finishes in each round of the season. The competitor with the most points is crowned the champion. Stanley does play other sports, but his father Brad said his passion and ability are clearest when he rides the ATV. “He plays soccer as well, but this is what he wants to do,” Brad said. “He wants to race. He wants to clean up this year.” This weekend Stanley will travel to Burnt River in northern Ontario to race in a Canadian Motosport Racing Corporation provincial event. While there are points on the line, it’s not always about competition, sometimes it’s just good fun. “I like doing it because there’s a lot of competition and you can make friends on the race track.”

Will Golden Eagles continue their winning ways? Former Golden Eagles talk about the future of the team TOM KENNEDY BRANT NEWS

W

Before the Eagles take to the ice again, Brant News contacted some of the players who made a name for themselves over the last two years and are now moving on to further their careers or, in some cases, start new chapters in their lives. Long-haired leader Luke Van Moerkerke saw two years of hockey under the direction of Rex and is now headed to the University of Ontario Institute of Technol-

Golden Eagles general manager Mike Bullard, left, has taken over from Scott Rex as head coach. ogy in Oshawa to study business and play hockey. His decision to go to school in Oshawa was based on the opportunity to play CIS hockey and he said his time with the Eagles former coach was among the best in his career, but that he didn’t see the Eagles taking a back seat with Bullard at the helm. “The big reason why I came to Brantford was because I wanted to play for Rex. Obviously I’m a little upset to see Rex go,” Van Moerkerke said. “I think Bullard’s got the résumé to back it up. I don’t know how things are going to work out but they’re not downgrading. “I’m not going to say they’re going to go out and win the Sutherland Cup, but they’re not going to miss the playoffs.” Sutherland Cup winning

Golden Eagles T.J. Fergus took a year off from hockey following his last season of junior eligibility, but it didn’t stop him securing an NCAA Division 3 scholarship with Robert Morris University in Chicago for next season. It also didn’t change his opinion of Scott Rex, who he believes is a huge loss for the Eagles. “It’s not even comparable. He’s the best coach I’ve ever had,” Fergus said. “Bullard has the playing experience but can he teach it? Can he get those 20 guys to play the way he wants?” Fergus’ last year with the Eagles was during the franchise’s historic 08-09 season and he saw just what Rex could bring out of his players. Rex led Fergus to a Cherrey Cup and Sutherland Cup championship and then arranged for his trial skates with Robert Morris University. Without Rex in charge, Fergus said he doesn’t believe the next Eagles will match the last. “I hope they do well,” he said. “Without Rex I think they’ll be middle of the pack.” Jeff Lynch, who was brought into the Eagles last year, has a possible future in the Southern Professional Hockey League following a tryout arranged by Rex. Lynch will skate with the Fayetteville FireAntz later this year and said he wasn’t sure what the result of Rex’s departure would mean for his former team. “I’ve never had an experience like that, it was so much fun to compete for a championship that it made me compete that much harder to pursue my hockey career,” he said. “It’s hard to say (what will happen) because Rex is a great coach. we’ll have to see how Mike Bullard can deal with all the guys.” Unlike Van Moerkerke,

Lynch and Fergus, muscleman Mike Mazurek will not be pursuing a future in hockey. Mazurek will attend Laurentian University at Georgian College for criminology and police studies. For the first time in a long time, there will be no hockey or lacrosse on his schedule. While chasing his goal of becoming a police officer, Mazurek will have time off to study, relax and reflect on the years he was coached by Rex. “The last two years of hockey that I played have been the best,” he said. “Rex was able to work with the guys, he made everyone realize they had a role on the team and that we all had to work together. “I think they’ll do well because they’re beyond losing. The owners don’t ice bad teams, they put too much money into the team to lose.” While the Eagles players were shocked to hear of the departure of Rex, most agree Bullard brings to the table an impressive résumé of his own. They feel that it will be a very different year for the

The 2009-2010 Golden Eagles celebrate their Cherrey Cup championship win.

S0004612

ith a new era of Brantford’s Golden Eagles only a few months away, several former members of the team are taking a look back, before moving forward. Two years ago the junior Bs brought Scott Rex into the fold, a new head coach who would take the locals to unprecedented heights in a very short period of time. The Eagles announced in June that Rex would no longer be head coach of the organization and they would take a new direction with general manager Mike Bullard adding head coach to his title. While Rex enjoyed his wining ways with the Eagles, he told Brant News there was no hard feelings and said he had faith in the abilities of his replacement. “I wish them all the best,” he said. “Mike understands this level of hockey and he’s had a year to take in the league. He’ll be fine.” In his first season with the team, 2008-2009, Rex and his troops made franchise history when they claimed their first-ever Midwestern Conference Cherrey Cup championship and followed it up with a Sutherland Cup winning performance. The gold and black jerseys were at it again last year, defending their Midwestern title and advancing to the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Sutherland series before falling to the LaSalle Vipers. Those two years of impressive hockey brought with them triumph and heartache as the team iced players ranging from new and explosive faces to familiar and stalwart individuals. While it is a new direction, Bullard is no slouch. The hockey veteran played 11 seasons in the NHL before moving to Europe and continuing his career with 17 years of playing and eventually coaching over there. With the tough task of following in the footsteps of Rex, Bullard said the Eagles will take a step in a different direction next season, icing a younger team. “There’s no question we’re definitely going to go younger and have a local flavour,” he said. “Scotty did a great job. I don’t know if there’s much of a difference in style between us. We’re going to emphasize speed, we want to be entertaining.”

Artistic transformations Works by Daniel James Hill featured in new Brantford Arts Block exhibit Lauren Baron BRANT NEWS

D

aniel James Hill is a master of transformations. As a teenager, he went through a turbulent time. He dropped out of high school and was living on the street. Without a place to live, he spent his days travelling and creating sculptures, selling them to make money. “Whatever city I was in I would go to the art galleries,” Hill said. “At age 19, I decided I really wanted to be

an artist.” Hill turned his life around, taking up a career as a construction worker and house painter and exhibiting at a commercial art gallery in his spare time. That wasn’t enough for the Six Nations painter, who will exhibit his latest works at the Brantford Arts Block from July 30 to Aug. 31. “I wasn’t feeling challenged enough,” Hill said. “I decided there was more to art and about art that I didn’t understand.” Hill applied to the Haliburton School of Arts, part of Sir Sandford Fleming

College, where he completed the school’s two-year visual and creative arts diploma program. During that time, he went through an even greater transformation. The former high school dropout graduated as valedictorian of his class and even made a change to his art style. “I went in as a sculptor and came out more as a painter,” he said. Hill liked the style of Six Nations artists Daphne Odjig and Norval Morrisseau, particularly the Woodland style of painting, which involves simple black lines and block colours. After a while, Hill felt ready for another change. “I wanted to break away from what I was doing,” he said. “Everything was so tight and controlled. Then a friend said: ‘Change what you are doing,’ just as simple

as that.” Hill took his friend’s adad vice and turned to abstract. “I wanted to explore something more expressive,” he said. “I didn’t want to feel neat.” Hill started his abstract work about a year ago and the Arts Block exhibit will be the first time it is on display. Now he’s inspired by his two children, Shiyloh, 7, and Bezzi, 5. “They’re not concerned with how the nose (of their subject) looks, they’re concon cerned about the art process and enjoying it,” Hill said. As artist in residence, Hill’s large-scale paintings line his studio at the back of the Arts Block. The studio serves as a mumu seum of his transformation, with everything from early sketches and sculptures to his abstract paintings. He

even has a few sketches from Shiyloh and Bezzi hanging around. Evidence of his transformation can

also be found as soon as you walk into the Arts Block. Two of his paintings hang above the counter: one an early abstract and another reminiscent of his Woodland style painting. “Throughout the process of experi experimenting, I’m start starting to harmonize the different paint painters that are in my head,” Hill said. An opening recep reception for Hill’s exhibit will be held on Friday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Brantford Arts Block. The all-ages reception will include refreshments, a chance to speak with Hill and a sound installation by Paul Kopoc and Roan Bateman based on Hill’s paintings.

There are the usual standards; sniper rifles, machine guns and pistols. But standouts like the enemy liquidizing AutoCannon, the Dethex grenade launcher and the E99 Seeker, which both fire ordinance you can manually steer to a target, will make Singularity instantly appealing to FPS fans. However, it is the game’s iconic Time Manipulation Device—or TMD—that packs the biggest punch. With a flick of a shoulder button the TMD can capture a thrown object, repel enemies, shield your character from harm, or manipulate time around a target.

a lifetime of the blues Producing new record a cathartic experience for Six Nations’ Joel Johnson Lauren Baron Brant news

J

oel Johnson’s love of the blues started at an early age. “I used to play my dad’s bass,” the Six Nations blues artist said. “After he was done practicing, he would leave it on the couch and I would sneak in there and play it.” At age seven, Johnson’s father bought him his first guitar. “I was determined,” he said. “It started out as noise first and eventually that noise started to sound like music.” Johnson’s love of the blues has developed into a career of writing, singing and performing, which has translated into his first solo album, Blues Joose Volume 1. Johnson played every instrument, wrote all of the lyrics and sang all vocals on the album. “It was challenging and fun because you’re trying to get whatever is in your head

out and record it,” he said. “It’s like a puzzle. You mix things around and try to fit it together.” Blues Joose is dedicated to Johnson’s late friend, Paul “Joose” Mitten. The pair met during a high school talent competition and joined forces to create the band The Blues House Hustlers. The band had success during the 1990s, performing at the SkyDome Pow-wow and on Breakfast Television in Toronto. When Mitten passed away suddenly, everything changed. “It was shocking,” Johnson said. “Everyone was shocked. Most of the group wanted to quit playing music

but I told them (Mitten) wouldn’t want us to quit.” Johnson continued playing music and started the blues band Texas Meltdown. The band released its first album, Feel the Heat, in 2008 and won best blues album at the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards. During that time, Johnson was constantly writing music. By the time the band went their separate ways, he was ready to hit the studio in early 2009. “This is the music I wanted to do with Joose,” he said. “We probably would have recorded stuff like this, going back to the old school blues we both loved.” Johnson said writing the

music on the album helped him cope with the loss of Mitten, as well as the loss of his father, who passed away two years before Mitten. “It made me remember more of the times I spent with them and all the funny things we did,” he said. “I had to start writing about it.” Johnson will celebrate the album at a CD release party at Liquid Lounge on Saturday. Now working as a three-piece band with bassist Chris Brown and drummer Bill Wood, the trio will perform songs off the new album. “It’s going to be high energy,” Johnson said. “Be prepared to boogie woogie and dance.”

ingularity, the latest first person perspective (FPS) action title from Activision’s first party developers, Raven Software, follows the exploits of Renko, a covert operations soldier with a mission to uncover the mystery surrounding a remote island in the Kamchatka peninsula off the coast of Russia. As with all good adventure games things do not go according to plan, and Renko finds himself cut off from his team and fighting for his life amongst the shattered ruins of the Katorga-12 facility. Before the island was abandoned it seems Soviet scientists were experimenting with a rare isotope called Element 99 (E99), a resource capable of providing Russia with unlimited free energy, and more importantly, the

secret of time travel. Unfortunately, prolonged exposure to E99 transformed the island’s resident scientists into vicious beasts, and wonderfully entertaining opportunities for target practice. Time travel is the underlying theme of Activision’s Singularity, and you will experience its effects and learn to use it as a tool to save humanity from catastrophe. The storyline begins in the present but quickly moves to the Cold War era of the 1950s before shifting to an alternate future dominated by communist Russia. Ironically, your actions in the early stages of the game are responsible for this nightmarish alternate reality. And you will spend the rest of the game travelling back and forth through time to put things right. Of course, no FPS game

in countless other FPS titles. Overall, it is Singularity’s all-important gameplay design that wins this game the most kudos, and in a market flooded with similar titles, that is never a bad thing. Singularity isn’t pretty or particularly innovative, but it is certainly a lot of fun while it lasts, and the quality of the action will ensure that FPS fans will enjoy this title from beginning to end.

stored back to working order, time can be slowed to a crawl and enemy creatures can be instantly aged to dust. The TMD is a powerful weapon, but it is also used as a plot device to inject puzzle based elements into the gameplay as well as offering the player a variety of alternate strategies for combat. For instance, you could fight a group of soldiers with conventional weapons, avoid them using the shielding feature of the TMD, or whittle down their numbers with a quick blast from the TMD’s aging ray. Choice is everywhere in Singularity, and while the entire game is extremely linear in its direction, the way in which you go about reaching your objectives are often determined by individual play style. Enemy character designs are relatively standard for the genre—ranging from Russian soldiers to towering blue skinned monsters. However, Singularity’s designers threw in a few novel twists to keep you on your toes and the edge of your seat. Up to 12 players can compete in Singularity’s multiplayer gaming component, often broken up into two teams of 6 players, and played using just two game-

While FPS veterans will find nothing particularly new with the available play options or the maps included in the game, the choice to play as 4 different soldier classes armed with advanced weaponry, or 4 diverse monster classes outfitted with an array of weird abilities can create some truly memorable online gaming experiences. Singularity will not be winning any awards for its often-clumsy time travelling storyline.

The spotlight is on and around your home environment this week. If you have family or in-laws around, it may be a little bit difficult to keep tabs on all the social events and responsibilities. Just stay calm and avoid stress, confrontation and clashes. Think before you speak.

You have to tread carefully when dealing with sensitive topics around finances or money. The important thing is to tread carefully so people do not feel that you are accusing them of any irresponsible financial behaviour. Try to negotiate and keep tension to a minimum during this week.

Caution is highly recommended. Do not overestimate or overplay your abilities in business situations. Read the fine print before signing any documents and make an effort to move at a slower pace so you do not appear to be indecisive or impulsive. Walk, don’t run.

You may be spending money. This may not be your favourite pastime, especially if it involves going from store to store shopping, but trying to probe the internet will not be very satisfactory. Buy what you need, not what you want, so that you do not extend the household budget.

A new job or promotion at your present one may have you flying high. Your ambitions are being fulfilled and your sense of purpose takes on more reality. Do not refuse the chance to take on somewhat of a leadership role. This can lead to opportunities you have never experienced before.

A new month and finally the money situation seems to be in some control for now. Spend time with those who are near and dear to you and take a few short breaks so you do not get overloaded trying to multitask. A neighbourhood barbecue or social event could get a little gossipy.

SAgITTARIUS

PISCES

Summertime, summertime! You may be doing more running around than usual this week, but this can be by your own choosing. Most days, you will have the phone in one hand and the laptop in the other while trying to juggle the family in the middle. By week’s end, you may need to take a few deep breaths.

You are rushing around the first part of the week, slowing down the last. Spending some time around the home allows you to catch up on neglected housework or maintenance. A do-ityourself project or renovation may excite you, but do not start something that you may not finish.

TAURUS

(April 19 to May 20)

This is a time to listen and read between the lines at work. You will learn more from what is not being said. It may be time to consider a new direction with your career. Start to do some networking in this area, although this change or new opportunities may not surface until the end of the summer.

(June 21 to July 22)

LEO

Expect the unexpected. A practical but serious atmosphere prevails. Getting your point across to business partners is possible as long as you select your words carefully. Try to stay away from a hint of criticism. There is no pressing need to hurry this week. Try for accuracy, not speed.

gEMInI

VIRgO

You may be looking into severing some ties with a professional or long-term relationship. Sometimes, we just outgrow them. New career developments are on tap and new relationships with them. A major insightful week around your career and business is in store.

A mentally stimulating week that may hold some very deep discussions surrounding relationships and your role in them. Do not get defensive or feel that someone may be posing a choice or ultimatum. Keep the lines of communication open to avoid any serious misunderstandings.

t first glance, the hill on the grounds of Brier Park School doesn’t appear very intimidating. After participating in Booty “Boot” Camp, the hill appears as challenging as Mount Everest. Everyone was feeling the pain as drill sergeant, a.k.a. instructor, Michelle Watson had Booty Camp recruits doing exercises like burpees, crab walks, lunges and planks, all while going up the hill, during a class last Tuesday night. “One of the things I like about it is that everyone is feeling the pain, just like you are,” said recruit Lauren Whibley. Whibley was one of several women invited to “bring a friend” night. She’s enrolled in several Booty Camps since the program was initiated in Brantford in April 2009. “It is so motivating,” Whibley said. “I always try to come with friends so that we push each other to be here every week.” Dressed in a pink cam-

ouflage T-shirt and hat and brandishing a whistle, Watson led more than 20 women through a gruelling hour-long exercise program as music played in the background. Booty Camp was created in 2007 by Sammie Kennedy of Toronto to specifically target women’s “trouble spots.” Watson decided to become an instructor after taking a class. “I was really bored with the gym and wanted something different,” she said. “I loved it so much that I took a course and became a fitness instructor.” Nicole Champagne said she chose the fitness program over traditional workout programs because classes are held outdoors. “My favourite thing is that it is outside,” Champagne said. “That’s the best part: you aren’t stuck indoors working out while the weather is so nice. When I worked out inside, I felt claustrophobic.” Booty Camp is held twice weekly, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:15 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., for four and eight-week sessions. “You get to know everyone, so in a way you’re account-

We really try to be upbeat and positive because working out isn’t always easy for everybody. This is really about women bonding and rooting each other on.” In addition to a rigorous cardio component, booty camp recruits work on core and upper body strength through a series of drills that include sit-ups and push-ups.

Marg Gamble tried Booty Camp for the first time as a guest of her daughter, Katie Gamble. “It’s hard,” she said. “I go to the gym on a regular basis and I think this is a little more intense.” Recruits see positive results after just four weeks, Watson said. “People are losing inches and pounds, but they are also gaining confidence, too,” she said. “Your whole body gets stronger from head to toe.”

Booty camp is open to women of all sizes and fitness levels over the age of 16. Women work at their own pace to achieve personal goals. Classes are held outdoors throughout the spring, summer and fall and move inside during winter months. In addition to twice weekly classes, recruits receive a DVD and recipe books.

Staying active during pregnancy Study aims to improve womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fitness levels during pregnancy and beyond

study that monitors the activity levels of women under 30 weeks pregnant to help encourage fitness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Up until not that long ago, it was a common belief that if you are pregnant you should rest and take it easy,â&#x20AC;? Gaston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the worst things women can do. It actually puts women at increased risk for their babies to have obesity or cardiovascular issues.â&#x20AC;? Citing statistics from a paper she published in the scholarly journal Health Psychology in 2009, Gaston said that exercise by pregnant women could reduce the risk of potentially fatal pregnancy-related conditions like pre-eclampsia by 66 per cent and gestational diabetes by

University of Western Ontario PhD student is trying to help women in Brantford overcome barriers to exercising during pregnancy. Anca Gaston, who is working in the field of health and exercise psychology at UWO, is currently undertaking a

56 per cent. Exercise is also good for mental health, shortening labour and reducing the risk of obesity later in life, Gaston said. The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada recommends that pregnant women should incorporate moderate exercise into their daily routines four times per week. Currently, only 40 per cent of women follow that recommendation, Gaston said, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something she wants to change. Gastonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s study has pregnant women wear an Actical monitor around their hip for one week. The device monitors physical activity and reports on the intensity,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Babies born to active women have improved health outcomes.â&#x20AC;? Anca Gaston amount and calories burned. The six-week process has women periodically meet with Gaston to discuss their activity levels and determine strategies to help them incorporate exercise into daily routines. Caitlin Christie is two weeks into the study. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 20 weeks pregnant and wants to improve her habits so she can have a healthy pregnancy, labour and postpartum

recovery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to be tired and lazy and stay home and be tired and pregnant,â&#x20AC;? Christie said. Before getting pregnant, Christie joined a local gym in the hope she could continue exercising once pregnant. In her first trimester, she was quite ill and found that her gymâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fitness classes were too high-intensity for her new body. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Anca) is making me understand that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as simple as a walk or family bike ride,â&#x20AC;? Christie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about putting extra pressure on us, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about cashing in on the stuff youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already doing.â&#x20AC;? Now, Christie walks a little bit faster and a little longer when taking her dog out, or spends a little extra time gardening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can do it on my own time and at my own pace,â&#x20AC;?

Christie said. As a nurse working in public health, Christie said it would be great to have some concrete evidence to prove how easy and how good exercise can be during pregnancy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people think this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the time to pick up exercise, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s totally the time because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not for you anymore, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for the baby,â&#x20AC;? Christie said. Gaston will be recruiting women under 30 weeks pregnant for the next several months. For more information about the study, visit www.ehpl.uwo.ca. To participate, call 519-304-3244 or e-mail ancagaston@gmail. com. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Babies born to active women have improved health outcomes and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important from that point of view if we want the healthiest society,â&#x20AC;? Gaston said.

Visually impaired youth connect at summer camp Colleen Toms BRANT NEWS

F

or blind and visually impaired youth at Views Camp Freedom, fun was just an added bonus to the valuable life lessons and life-long friendships they gained. “This is an excellent way to connect with other blind kids and to learn essential skills,” camper Blair Spry said. “You can just be yourself here.” Twenty-four young people between the ages of 11 and 20 recently travelled from across Ontario to attend the fifth annual Views Camp Freedom. The camp originated in Orangeville and

has been offered at W. Ross Macdonald School for the past three years. Parents of blind and visually impaired youth help develop programming for the camp, said instructor Julie Spry. “This is parents recognizing what the challenges are,” she said. “Parents have gone out to meet our own children’s needs.” Last week’s theme was independent living skills. On Wednesday, campers participated in a tai chi class put on by the Taoist Tai Chi Society Brantford Branch. “We brought tai chi in because it is about body awareness, about being centred and about coping mechanisms,” said camp co-

Joann MacLachlan instructs blind and visually impaired youth at W. Ross Macdonald School for the Blind. Photo by Tom Kennedy, Brant News ing an overnight camp-out, swimming, bowling, making dream catchers and totem poles, playing amazing race and organizing a dance. “What we really try to do is give them skills so they can integrate back into the community and be healthy

ordinator Kelly Henderson. “We like to give campers opportunities to explore different things so they know what is in the community and what they can access.” Youth were exposed to a variety of activities during their week-long stay, includ-

participants,” Spry said. “Many of our young people don’t have opportunities in their home communities to be actively engaged. This is a chance for them to learn the basics so they can be more confident about going out in the community.” The camp also gave participants an opportunity to spend time with other visually impaired youth. “The majority of students here don’t attend W. Ross so they don’t have contact with other visually impaired people in their community,” Spry said. Ruby Szpeflicki said that interaction prompted her to return to camp for the past three years. “It’s a good way to network

and meet new people and to have connections that you don’t get at integrated schools,” she said. “If you walk into something it’s okay. Other people are doing the same thing, so you don’t feel stupid or different from everybody else.” Campers openly discussed their challenges and gained insight into how other youth cope with their visual impairments. “You would think that you were the only one who didn’t know something, but then you meet another person who is thinking the same thing,” camper Jeff Raiey said. “It’s a good way to relate to other people who are going through the same things you are.”

Madison’s haircut benefits Locks of Love Lauren Baron BRANT NEWS

fter three years of growing out her long, blonde hair, seven-year-old Madison Golden decided to chop it off for Locks of Love. “Her grandfather is a cancer survivor, so she wanted to do it on his behalf,” her father, Alex, said. On July 21, Golden had

14 inches cut off to give to Locks of Love, a non-profit organization that donates hairpieces to children suffering from long-term medical hair loss. During her hair cut, at Vivid Hair Studio and Esthetics, Golden wasn’t nervous at all and said to her mother, Christine: “Wow Mommy, I am so excited to be doing a good thing for my papa and cancer.” Her hair now falls to her

Over the summer, Golden will be collecting money to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society and she’s already considering doing the cut again in the future. “It was fun and very exciting,” she said.

Providing children with learning solutions

B

y giving youngsters tools to solve their own problems and direct their own learning, Our Lady Queen of Peace Montessori Bilingual School is helping them develop into confident and organized students. “When (students) have a problem we help them solve it themselves by giving them the tools to deal with it appropriately,” directress Marie Monast-Helmers said at the 128 Nelson St. site. “There is a scientific approach to everything we do here.” With a motto of “Building

Better Citizens for the Future”, Montessori Bilingual School utilizes a childdirected method of teaching that develops a positive self-image, self-confidence and fundamental academic understanding in students. Older children help their younger classmates deal with challenges, sharing their knowledge and problem-solving skills through play and activities like transferring beans or rice from one bowl to another using spoons, tweezers or fingers. “Everything is a purposeful activity,” said MonastHelmers. “There are various activities that we have to help the child to concentrate in order for them to be ready

for academic learning.” Youngsters aged twoand-a-half through five quietly play with toys in the spacious open-concept classroom, each appearing content and comfortable in their surroundings. “They know how to use their time. They know how to keep themselves occupied and busy in a good way,” Monast-Helmers said. Pointing to dressing frames that teach children how to open and close buttons, snaps and zippers, Monast-Helmers noted how practical life lessons make a child more receptive to daily challenges. “When a child struggles to finish a project, that shows the determination of

the child and shows us he is ready to learn,” MonastHelmers said. By problem solving and identifying how to overcome challenges, youngsters are less frustrated when a challenge is presented to them now and in the future. “The whole Montessori approach is just common sense,” Monast-Helmers said. Students participate in prayer every day at the Catholic-centred school and learn to understand and speak French by having teachers introduce words at various times during the day. “We go from the known to the unknown. The child really enjoys that ap-

proach and it really works,” Monast-Helmers said. Monast-Helmers has great confidence in the Montessori method of teaching after being involved in the program for over 20 years. Because each child is respected as an individual, teaching methods, approaches and instructions are tailored to each child’s individual learning needs. “I love what I’m doing. I’ve seen so much success, that’s why I keep going,” she said. Montessori Bilingual Centre has grown considerably since it was established as a home-based school in 1994. The school is licensed with the Ministry of Community and Social Services and has operated from its Nelson

Street site since Sept. 2006. Our Lady Queen of Peace Montessori Bilingual School is open to all denominations and has the capacity for 24 students with a ratio of eight students per teacher. Classes run 12 months a year, including summer programs, and extended hours of operation are available from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. People interested in learning more about the regular school program, that starts the first Wednesday after Labour Day, are invited to attend an open house on Sept. 2 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Summer camps run until Aug. 20. For more information call 519-759-3082.
