per cent City raising large industrial Fifteen rate spike will only tax rates to recoup losses affect Domtar mill

InSIdE

The Ministry of Finance has granted the City of Dryden a special right to increase its large industrial tax rate, which will exclusively affect Domtar’s Dryden Mill. The City passed the bylaw at a special meeting on Dec. 5, voting to elevate Domtar’s taxes by 15 per cent for 2013. The $274,000

bump will recuperate more than a quarter of the $1million tumble in municipal taxes Domtar paid this year after the mill property was devalued by 70 per cent. In February, the Assessment Review Board (ARB) ruled the mill’s value at $14 million. It had been valued at $52 million in 2008 and Municipal Property Assess-

ment Corporation (MPAC) anticipated it would be assessed at $36 million through the ARB process. The ARB also ordered Dryden to pay Domtar $5.4 million in retroactive taxes back to 2009, plus $2.7 million in education taxes. Over the summer, Mayor Craig Nuttall formed a group of Northern Ontario municipal leaders dubbed

the “Magnificent Seven” who have been lobbying the Ministry of Finance for changes to the MPAC process. Six of those communities have been granted the right to alter the tax structure for large industrial properties, all of which passed bylaws to do so by Dec. 10. Although Nuttall recognized raising the industrial

tax rate was a significant step, he intends to attend Toronto meetings this week and continue to press the ministry for changes. “It’s something we have to do to recuperate some of our losses,” Nuttall said in reference to the municipality’s negotiations with the province. “I think we’re making enormous headway.”

Protestors coming from Dryden had to drive past four separate motor vehicle accidents on Hwy. 17 just to get to a demonstration drawing attention to what they say are falling standards for winter road maintenance in the Northwest, Dec. 7.

Fire Hall #2 spared, strong council support for rest of KPMG’s cost-saving plan By Jon thompson The consultants leading Dryden’s Operational Service Review says the political will does not exist to close the #2 Fire Hall but implementing the rest of the plan could get the municipal budget’s head above water. In its final public presentation to City Council on Dec. 3, KPMG announced it had polled City Council and while all other “opportunities” presented in its draft report on Nov. 13 attracted either majority or unanimous support, elected officials were evenly split on shuttering the fire station in the former Township of Barclay, with one abstention. The allegiances of councilors were not named. “The two opportunities that didn’t get majority support – the closure of the #2 Fire Hall and the closure of Aaron Park –

from our perspective, are off the table,” KPMG’s Oscar Poloni told a crowd gathered at Ontario Aboriginal Housing. “Council may wish to reconsider them but what we will tell council right now is, based on the preliminary results, you won’t get support from a majority perspective.” Council elected to renew a shared stewardship of Aaron Park with the Ministry of Natural Resources in November after the park proved its 2013 season to be profitable.

City council moving forward with deficit elimination plan

City appeals to Canada Post to reconsider mail-sorting move By Jon thompson The City of Dryden is urging Canada Post to reconsider its decision to centralize regional mail delivery in Thunder Bay, charging the service is failing to deliver on its service level promises. Mayor Craig Nuttall sent a letter to the Crown corporation on Dec. 4, appealing to the mail service to hold itself to its twoday commitment for local delivery. In September, Canada Post “de-twinned” its offices throughout Northwestern Ontario, opting for a model that sorts mail in Thunder Bay and ships it back to municipalities. Dryden’s letter calls the change “drastic,” suggesting it may take “a hard look at alternative methods of mail delivery” if Canada Post doesn’t reconsider re-localizing the service. “I have experienced both personally and professionally, the decline of service as far as turnaround time since this new policy has been put in place,” Nuttall’s letter reads, pointing out the City spent approximately $55,000 on postage over

an $80,000 reduction in snow removal, some consolidation of debt, $102,000 in revenue generation by standardizing cost recovery models for public facilities, $20,000 in savings through converting the solid waste disposal site in East Dryden to a transfer station, and $17,000 in savings through moving Provincial Offences offices into City Hall. Mayor Craig Nuttall heard Poloni’s cautionary note that council should “hold (its) ground” in forwarding the agenda, urging councillors to recognize the plan now has a mandate to be implemented. “What I can do is when there’s some difference of opinion, I can say, ‘the consensus is that we’re doing this because everyone has been polled.’ The ones who are against it are against it but we have a majority so let’s talk that way,” Nuttall said, looking forward to the 2014 budget. “My personal goal is a zero increase in taxes and a zero increase in user fees — there are going to be user fees for people out of town — and a balanced budget.” Considering KPMG’s suggested measures have been accepted, KPMG sees Dryden’s structural deficit figure of about $1 million annually closing to zero. If investment projections such as solar energy generation come to pass as anticipated and Council accepts in-camera recommendations, KPMG projects Dry-

To that end, the City has established a Transition Team, whose responsibility will be implementing strategies to achieve the plan’s goals.That team will be led by André Larabie, who was hired as city manager on Nov. 18. “It was clear with the presentation that we need the support of council but I’m also asking as your new CAO that we have the support from the community because the decisions they have to make are not going to be easy,” Larabie said. “The plan is in three years time, we’re out of deficit and we’re able to put some reserve funds aside so that we can move on and become

self-sustained, with the funding we receive. Government is cutting us. Every week, we’re hearing that funding is going to be cut. Unless we cut the expenses we’re not going to be able to balance the budget.” According to Dryden’s recently-approved 2012 year-end financial figures, the city had $50.6 million in total liabilities, including $1.6 million in accounts payable, $16.7 million in Dryden Mobility Telephone Service (DMTS) telephone

costs and $7.9 million it has been ordered to pay in back taxes to Domtar’s Dryden Mill. Separately, Dryden’s debenture debt financing finished last year at $28.4 million. The City’s line of credit stood at $1.6 million and there has been no draw on the line of credit since the sale of DMTS. There was also a $10-million debenture on the new sewage treatment plant, with an additional $2 million to service the DTMS debt.

the last year. “Your commitment to a two-day delivery standard may not (have) changed, but indeed the results have been the opposite.” Canada Post communications representative Phil Legault said the service has no records of late delivery in Dryden and pointed out the centralization trend is a nation-wide issue with cities as large as Victoria B.C. having its mail sorted in Vancouver. De-twinning local delivery came about as a suggestion from the Conference Board Of Canada, which calculated Canada Post could be losing up to $1 billion each year by 2020 unless significant changes were made to its operations. “We have to maximize our processing,” he explained. “The facility in Thunder Bay is more than capable of taking the letter mail that’s coming in from Dryden, then meeting delivery standards for two days within the city.” Legault clarified the two-day processing commitment does not include the day the mail is dropped in the mailbox.

LetterS to the editor

Seniors in parade were an inspiration To the editor: I just returned from watching the Santa Claus parade and want to send out the biggest cheer to the seniors from Patricia Gardens who participated in the parade pushing walk-

ers/riding motorized carts on a very cold winter evening, what role models. Proud of that generation, kudos to all. Gerry Oliphant Dryden

Appeal to snowplows to help clear snow To the editor: I’m just curious why half-ton drivers with plows on their trucks don’t put their blades down to help others around town, especially the elderly. What would be the harm in it? Would they starve to death? After the storm of December 5th I saw about six trucks dri-

ving everywhere and none of them put their blades down to lend a hand to anyone. I’m disappointed that people aren’t more neighbourly and thoughtful. I always thought Dryden was like that. Marie Robinson Dryden

Deadman’s Lake uch has already been written M about our most famous inventor, that being Mr Roy Orvis, who created Dryden Cable TV, and kept it ahead of its time for some decades. My favourite anecdote illustrating this was in the 70s, when visitors from Toronto were astonished to find crystal clear commercial television channels from San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, New York, in their rooms at the Best Western. At that time all Toronto got for American channels was snowy Buffalo. Dryden is indeed the birthplace of cable TV as we know it, and I have been trying to put together an argument that we ought to recognize Mr Orvis’s remarkable achievements. To this end, I have had several conversations with Mr. Orvis and learned much, but he is a modest man, and suggests that rather than promote fame for him, I ought to promote correcting what he sees as a flaw in our mapping. So that is what this column will do. There are a couple of ponds east of Colonization, and south of the CPR. They might be too small to merit a name if out in the rural area, but

are large enough that they ought to have a name in their urban setting. The south one is shown on some maps as ‘Milanese’s Lake’, and the north one generally shown as unnamed, or on some maps as ‘Deadman’s Lake’. These lakes are very deep in comparison to their size, with an indefinite quicksand bottom, and there is a tale that the CPR lost a locomotive, sunk in the lake, during construction. This might be the origin of the ‘Deadman’s Lake’ name, however, it is unsubstantiated and I can find no claim that there was loss of life, so there is no strong case for that name. Roy grew up in the 20s and 30s on the Orvis farm. The farmhouse was near the northwest corner of the farm,

which was just east and south of the intersection of Casimir and Orvis streets, and the farm extended east all the way to Colonization. One of Roy’s boyhood chores was delivering milk from the farm to local customers, and he had great respect for one customer, a Mr. Pilkey. Roy recalls that Mr. Pilkey was the long-time owner and resident of the parcel of land south of the CPR, east of Colonization, extending east and surrounding the northern one of the two lakes. He believes that Pilkey was the pioneer there, certainly the longesttime resident of the plot in pioneer days, and his suggestion is that the lake ought to be renamed ‘Pilkey’s Lake’. He says that the southern one of the small lakes was encompassed by a parcel homesteaded by a Mr. Keatley, and perhaps that ought to be recognized as well, although Milanese was also a long-time resident of that homestead and we might leave well enough alone. So, that makes sense to me, ‘Pilkey’s Lake’ definitely has a nicer ring than ‘Deadman’s Lake’. Maybe there are Pilkey descendants with an opinion on the matter as well.

The bush gods were smiling t was a beautiful sunny and I mild day between Christmas and New Years 11 or 12 years ago. There was about a foot of snow on the ground. I decided to go for a slow ride on the skidder, not for any real reason, just to enjoy nature for a while, get out of the house and be thankful. I took a saw with me because I might as well get a few dry trees at the same time. I was taking the "high road" up and over the rock on the east side of the creek, for the view. From the top of the hill you can see part of Robin Hill Farm and almost all of Aubrey Lake. I have a " low road " on the south side between the rock and the swamp for skidding full skids of heavy poplar out. Dewey the golden retriever was running in front of the skidder like he always did when he was young. Halfway up the hill, he flushed a family of partridges from the side of the trail. I was surprised at how small three of the partridges were and that they were still with their mother at that time of the year. We went the half mile back to

our east property line and a few hundred yards north. There was a group of dead trees in a pocket of soil in the rock where they had grown too big for the dirt that they had. I backed the skidder up to the four black spruce and one jack pine and got off to cut them down. I was breaking Ontario safety laws that say that you push on all dead trees with the skidder to knock them over or test them to make the area safe for falling trees. After I got the four spruce down, I bent down to notch the pine. It was a little bigger than the spruce, about ten inch diameter and fifty feet tall As I revved the saw up before touching the tree, the tip of the bar blew apart,

instantly jamming the chain. Dewey didn't like to ride beside me so usually I would have two saws on the skidder but I had only brought one. I had the other saw at home so I decided to hook up the four trees and take them out with the limbs on. As I was winching the spruce up, a few branches brushed the pine tree. The top twenty feet of the chicot broke off and landed straight down in my footprints where I had bent over to cut it down. I got off the skidder and hooked up the top to take it out, too. I pulled on it to see how heavy it was. It was definitely heavy enough to break someone's back or worse. I had a lot to be thankful for on the ride back to the house. The four partridges looked nice, fluffed up, perched in a tree close to where they were earlier. I will probably take the same trip soon, and for the same reasons if the snow is not too deep for the skidder. The difference now, and for the last four years, is that Sam rides on the skidder and I only have room for one saw now.

cold really, just -20C., but that wind! It’s blowing the snow in ice devils across the front yard. Several times today, I’ve thought about the many years I’d have been out on a lake in this weather. Usually trying to seduce some poor speckled trout or walleye to grab hold of a hook and get flash frozen. Yet here I am in my fleece pyjama pants, enjoying the warmth of the air tight and feeling kind of glad I’m not out there. Yes, I’ve gotten softer with age. Some might say wiser. And I know this columnist is not alone. There was a time when the phone would have rung early in December with an “are we going out or what” call. That would have been followed by a quick load up, and hastily arranged adventure to some frozen, wind blown lake. Those calls have really petered out the last few years. Some of my once hardcore ice fishing buddies have hung it up all together. They still talk a good game, but when your auger and sled has not been fired up in years, it’s over. And I’m certainly a lot less willing to fish in weather better suited to Mastodons. It is just not as much fun when your tears freeze your eyelashes together like crazy glue. Yes, I know it’s different if you have an ice hut and you can get a fire going and fish in heat. I’m all for it and have done my share of it. It’s just not personally how I like to ice fish. If the walleye aren’t biting, I always feel compelled to move and find them. This often means a full scale uprooting. Something that a shack doesn’t allow. But when it’s cold out, packing up gear and moving is just not fun. Despite my softening ways, I still manage to endure a freezing cold ice fishing day once or twice each season. Last year, two trips certainly fit that bill. One of them was a nasty January fishing trip with my Dad. The weather didn’t seem too bad in town, but by the time we got to the stocked spec lake we had targeted the temperature had dropped another 10 -15 degrees. To top that off, there was a strong north wind to contend with. We dug a few holes and it was alarming to see them practically freeze over as the auger blade was yanked. The first fish hit fairly quickly, but it was so cold my reel was not working properly and it had to be hand bombed in. The good news was that it was a 22 inch brook trout, and the biggest of the season. I won’t even talk about the slush we got into, or the dead machine we had to contend with on the way out. Good times. The other expedition was a perch fishing expedition with Sandro Fragale. Despite his Roman roots, my old buddy seems to enjoy torturing himself in the cold. Especially when there are fish with spiny fins to be caught. On this day, we planted ourselves in the middle of Lake Superior’s Black Bay, despite excruciating cold and wind. How miserable was it? Well, my

partner in crime fished with his snowmobile helmet on for the better part of two hours. He looked like Marvin the Martian. It was that cold. Yes, we catch fish. The frozen carcasses of the perch were lined up like a picket fence around my Fishtrap. Such are the stories that make up cold weather ice fishing. There will be more to come. Just less of them. Chilly days are not uncommon for the ice angler

THE DrYDEN ObSErVEr

WEDNESDAY, DECEMbEr 11, 2013

Local anti-racism group will go active in 2014 by Jon Thompson After a year of planning, Dryden’s anti-racism movement is ready to come out in 2014. The Dryden Area AntiRacism Network’s (DAARN) first gathering will take place in January, starring Thunder Baybased singer/songwriter Shy-Anne Hovorka, Sioux Lookout photographer Brent Wesley and Eagle Lake-born filmmaker Michelle Derosier. Conceived in Dryden’s cultural planning process and born in the aftershocks of locals rejecting a plan to host First Nations students at Pinewood School, DAARN seeks to build bridges between cultures in the Dryden area. “There almost seemed to be a feel that if we stopped this (Pinewood School transition), we could stop the growth of our community to

be inclusive of all cultures,” said DAARN cochair Beth Queau. “I think it really pointed out to a lot of people in the community that feel Dryden should be inclusive and why aren’t we? I think it made those people stop and think because a lot of people didn’t realize the other feelings in the community, from their neighbours and their friends. It was a ‘woah’ kind of moment for a lot of people.” DAARN members found through anecdotal conversations that although First Nations people represent the largest identifiable cultural minority in Dryden, the hesitation to accept cultural diversity extended beyond the familiar dyad to a hesitance toward many differences. After a public showing of CBC’s documentary The 8th Fire, DAARN incorpo-

rated in October, aiming to create arenas in which Drydenites could learn about each other’s perspectives. “Through sharing, the truth comes out and knowledge improves,” explained co-chair Patty Vann. “With knowledge comes understanding, with understanding comes respect and with that comes trust and a better community for us all.” The approach is already taking shape in DAARN meetings, where stories are shared and those with antiracist intentions can break down their own knowledge barriers to become leaders in disseminating fact-based information among their social circles. “We need to share knowledge about the true history and culture and challenges facing everybody in this issue,” Vann said. “It’s getting the correct knowledge and sharing. I go out and I need talking points that are the truth at dinner parties.”

DAARN aspires to develop cultural competency and training programs that will expand the anti-racist ideal beyond the dinner parties to schools and workplaces, ultimately aiming to confront the ignorance of prejudice head-on. “You have to have zero tolerance for bullying and we’d like to see zero tolerance for racism in our community,” Queau said. “If you respect people, be they a different colour, a different race, have different religious views or cultural views or are gay, it’s a lack of respect, a lack of knowledge and understanding. By giving them some more understanding and education through what we do, maybe we can start making some small changes and start having people look at their neighbours or the people next to them in the store as just another person. That’s what it’s all about. We’re all just people.”

Police report 63 motor vehicle collisions throughout November COntinueD FrOm Pg. 1 stormy November. Amassing nearly 1,800 Facebook followers for his group ‘Highway 105 Residents For Better Roads’ over the past few weeks, Smith says a push for more salt and sand on icy, snow-packed secondary highways is another highlight of their messaging. “That’s how simple it is — put some sand down,” Smith said. OPP constable Jeff Moline reports that the Dryden/Ignace detachment area logged 63 motor vehicle collisions throughout November. Fifteen of those collisions involved transport trucks and five incidents resulted in injuries. More often than not Moline says drivers are driving too fast for the conditions. He reminds travellers to adjust their driving to the road conditions and to consider outfitting vehicles with winter tires. Kenora-Rainy River Member of Provincial Parliament, Sarah Campbell is no

New financing for Treasury Metals Family swim for Christmas Cheer

By Dryden Observer Staff

Area gold mining company Treasury Metals has found some working capital in its continued efforts to develop the Goliath Gold Project near Wabigoon. The company announced Dec. 4 that it has entered into an agreement with Secutor Capital Management Corp and several others including Canaccord Genuity Corp. that will raise aggregate gross proceeds of up to $2.5 million in flow-through common shares of the Company ("Flow-Through Shares") at a price of $0.40 per Flow-Through Share. In addition, the Company will grant the Agents an option to sell additional flow-through shares to raise additional gross proceeds of up to $450,000 exercisable at any time before the closing of the Offering. The net proceeds of the offering will be used for the advancement of the Company's Goliath Gold Project and general working capital

purposes. The offering is anticipated to close on or about Dec. 19, 2013. Closing of the Offering is subject to receipt of regulatory approvals, including the acceptance of the offering by the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Flowthrough Shares issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period under applicable securities laws in Canada. In consideration of the agents' services, the Company has agreed to pay the Agents a cash commission of 7.0 per cent of the gross proceeds raised under the offering. Treasury Metals is also pleased to announce it has been notified by RMB Resources Inc. ("RMB") that RMB has issued final approval of its mandate to arrange for and provide to the Company a $6,000,000 Feasibility Finance Facility by the lender, RMB Australia Holdings Limited.

Submitted This year, the staff at the Dryden Pool & Fitness Centre have devised a unique concept to support the Christmas Cheer Fund. They decided to each donate $10 — with that money, they will sponsor the Family Fun Swim and Slide on Friday, Dec. 13, from 7-9 p.m.

On that day, the admission for all participants will be $2, instead of the usual $3. The staff collection will cover the balance of the sponsorship fee. What is left over, will be donated to the Christmas Cheer Fund. As a result, the community will profit, the Christmas Cheer Fund will profit and the City will

not lose a single penny in the process. To make it even better, non-perishable food items and monetary donations for the Christmas Cheer Fund will also be collected on that day. The Pool & Fitness Centre Staff thanks you for your support and wishes you a wonderful Holiday Season.

THE DRYDEN OBSERVER - WEDNESDAY, DEcEmBER 11, 2013

Ice Dogs spilt home stand with Iron Rangers By Dryden Observer Staff Thirty games into their season, ‘wiggle room’ is getting harder to find in the SIJHL for the Dryden Ice Dogs. The club split a weekend doubleheader versus their closest rivals in the SIJHL standings, The Minnesota Iron Rangers. Minnesota have solidified their hold on third place and are just a win away from challenging the Thunder Bay North Stars for second place behind the 22-2 Fort Frances Lakers. Shayne Dietl manned the net for both home ice efforts on Friday and Saturday. Friday’s game was decided in the second period when Minnesota’s Matt O’Dea helped overcome an early Ice Dogs lead courtesy of Chris Sitko (Chris Varrin, Tyson Holder) and Varrin (Zachery Kercz). The final score would be a 6-2 loss for Dryden. On Saturday night, the roles were reversed somewhat as the Iron Rangers, who led the game into the third period, suddenly found themselves in a deficit thanks to Ice Dog Zachery Kercz (Synee Coonishish, and Mack Boyce) with just over one minute left in the game. The goal was Kercz’ second of the night, his other coming early in the third (Brendan Enns, Adam Smith). Other third period goals came courtesy of Chris Sitko (Jarrett Day, Varrin); and

Juniors seventh at Muskies invitational Submitted by Paul Darling The Eagles junior boys basketball team braved the snowy Hwy. 502 to compete in the annual Fort Frances Muskies Invitational, Dec. 6. The tournament was an eight-team laddered style tournament. The first opponent for Dryden was the Churchill Bulldogs out of Thunder Bay. Dryden lost their game against Churchill 46-21.

Meeting Fort Frances in their second game, Dryden committed too many turn overs and lost 40-21. In their third game, Dryden faced Beaver Brae. After coming out slow, Dryden finished strong to take a 32-28 win against the Rival Broncos. Coming out of the weekend, Dryden’s leading scorers were Marshall Miller with 17, Ray Cook with 16 and Charles Cortez with 9.

Tyson Holder (Tim Kavanaugh, Smith). Chris Varrin also marked a tally in the second period (Coonishish, Dane Feeney). Final score Ice Dogs 5, Minnesota 4.

The club is on the road for three games in Wisconsin and Minnesota this week, returning to home ice Dec. 18 to host the Wisconsin Wilderness.

Dryden High School Athletes of the Week Joel Zieroth By Nicole Nguyen Athlete of the week at DHS is Grade 11 student Joel Zieroth. Zieroth plays as a forward on both the boys’ hockey and soccer teams. This year, he hopes for his hockey team to achieve better communication, puck movement, and defensive zone coverage over the course of the season - ultimately leading them to a chance at the OFSAA championships in March. Zieroth’s favourite memory as an Eagle at DHS is competing in the Brandon hockey tournament in the 2012-13 season. In his spare time, Zieroth likes to relax and play NHL14 on his Xbox. The boys’ season is in full swing so you can head down to the Dryden Memorial Arena at their next home game, Dec. 17, 6 p.m.

Kevin Woolfrey By Emmy Arsenault Athlete of the week has also been awarded to Kevin Woolfrey, a guard for the DHS Eagle’s basketball team. The basketball season for Woolfrey has just started up and they are off to a good start. This year Woolfrey hopes to make it to OFSAA with his teammates. Other than his life on the court, Woolfrey enjoys spending his time at the gym and working out. Come out and support your local athlete on Jan. 7 vs. Beaver Brae as the Christmas holidays come to an end. Sponsored by:

Senior girls test squad at home invitational By Chris Marchand A fresh Dryden High School Eagles senior girls volleyball team put themselves to the test over the weekend in familiar surroundings, hosting the school’s annual Santa Claus Classic Volleyball Invitational. Clubs from as far as Rainy River and Thunder Bay braved less than ideal highway conditions to attend the early season tournament — an important chance for clubs to work the kinks out of their game. After a strong start, the untested Eagles barely managed to stave off Kenora’s Beaver Brae Broncos 25-18, 22-25. The Eagles had their share of struggles with consistent

service and passing. Eagle Alyssa Kirouac says her team has to maintain focus on the court. “I think we need to work on calling the ball instead of just watching it,� said Kirouac. “And just getting into the game a little more. But that will come with time as the season progresses.� The Eagles beat the Fort Frances Muskies in the quater-finals then lost to Rainy River in a semi-final match. Rainy River would eventually claim the tournament win downing Thomas Aquinas in the final. By the time the Eagles make it back to home court, Jan. 7 to face Kenora in regular season play, the team may be hard to recognize after plowing

through a serious tournament schedule over the next few weeks taking them as far as Thunder Bay and Minneapolis. “They (tournaments) are

very important because they give us a lot of playing time,� said Kirouac. “We’re guaranteed four or five games each tournament, so it’s a lot of practice as a team.�

Wood 79th at cross-country nationals in Vancouver By Dryden Observer Staff Dryden high school cross country-runner wrapped up her season, Dec. 4. Under the cold winter rains characteristic to Vancouver, Wood placed 79th in the under-19 division of the 2013 Canadian Cross-Country Championships at Jericho Beach Park. Wood covered the five kilometre Andie Wood distance in just over 20 minutes.

Come Together stages 10th annual concert, Dec. 28 By Dryden Observer Staff The tenth annual staging of Come Together might be your last chance to enjoy a show that has become a staple part of the holiday season for many musical Drydenites and their fans over the past decade. This year’s show will take place Saturday, Dec. 28 at The Centre. Raising well over $50,000 for the Dryden High School Music Association, Bleich says he might opt to pare down his concert promoting activities to a single event per year and perhaps focus on the more popular Kickin’ Country community concert staged each spring. In 2013, Bleich says there is more of a focus on bands, rather than individual performers which typically dominate the first half of the show. The Teflons, consisting of Vince Kastrukoff, Doug Jordens and Bruce Siciliano, will kick off the opening set of the show, followed by a short two-song set from Emily Gamble and Alexzandria Shearer. A six-piece gaggle of DHS music students, dubbed Classy Brass and

featuring Emily Luxton, Nick Clarke, Zack Moorman, Cecily Wilson, Ian Queau and Patrick Gould will take the stage for a pair of songs. Local bluegrass band Rusty Hinges (Colin Hillier, Michelle Savor-Silver, Jessie, Adria and Marcel Penner) will have a 15-minute set. Just before intermission A family talented group composed of Laura, Michael, Andrew, Stephen and Tommy Cortens will take to the stage alongside uncle Peter Cortens to mark the mid-point of the show. After the break, The Kellars, (Jordin, Landon and Rod) will be joined by Adam Tocholke and Chris Marchand before a solo appearance from local favourite Paul Hampton. Longtime friends and collaborators Erik Bleich and Dave Thiel will be next up, followed by some songs by Pass The Pineapple (Rick Smith, Peter Cortens, Jim Gee and JB Hewitson). The talented quartet of Dale Ripley, Mark Schmidt, Dave Thiel and Guenther Thiel will round out the evening.

Like Father, Like Son. Sorry Comedian Chris Gibbs performs his very funny one-man show ‘Like Father, Like Son. Sorry’ to a receptive crowd of Dryden Entertainment Series patrons, Dec. 7 at The Centre. The Entertainment Series resumes in the New Year with a musical performance from Jesse Peters and his band.

The Churches of Dryden Invite You To

A Celebration of Christmas

December 8 - December 14 ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Participate in something new and interesting this week, Aries. The perfect activity will present itself in the next few weeks, so be sure to keep your eyes open. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, delay any upcoming shopping excursions for the time being. Your coffers are getting a bit sparse, and you need to conserve the rest of your funds. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Listen to advice this week, Gemini. Loved ones only want to help and provide support, so keep that in mind when those closest to you offer some guidance. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, your suspicions may be aroused by someone who has been paying more attention to you than normal. It could be something completely innocent, but right now you're not sure. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Every day is a learning process, Leo. You will find that there are a number of new ideas swirling around in your head, and if you pin one down, you may be on to something. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Your colleagues at work may be making things difficult, Virgo, but there is nothing you can do about it right now. Just work your hardest, and things will turn out for the best.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, prepare to juggle multiple responsibilities in the coming days. Be ready to multi-task and expect to be pulled in multiple directions. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, a small misunderstanding turns into a larger battle this week. But you have the power to put the flames out quickly by keeping a cool head. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, you are having so much fun lately that it almost seems like life is a game. Just don't get so caught up in the good times that you overlook your responsibilities. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, you usually take your responsibilities quite seriously, and that is often for the best. Just be sure to let your hair down sometimes and have a little fun. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, some irregularities have begun to pop up of late. It is not up to you to figure out what is going on, though. Others will discover the truth. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, your head may be in the clouds, but it is quite comfortable up there. Just don't linger up there too long.

Get a grip Submitted Winter tires offer a dramatic improvement in driver control and traction in all cold-weather road conditions when temperatures fall below 7°C. A report from the Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) cites extensive research that shows that winter tires deliver superior traction, cornering and braking whether the cold-weather road surface is dry, snow covered, icy or slushy. The TIRF report can be viewed in its entirety, along with a wealth of other information about the performance benefits of winter tires, by visiting www.rubberassociation.c a and clicking on “Resources” under the “Winter Tires” drop-down menu. Better traction, shorter stopping distances One of the most important advantages of these new winter tires is reduced stopping distance when braking. TIRF cites research that shows that at temperatures just below freezing on dry pavement, stopping distances for vehicles with all-season tires can be as much as 30 per cent longer than for vehicles with winter tires. The report also cites research that concludes that winter tires offer better traction on a snow or ice-covered road surface at well below -30°C than an all-season tire has at 4°C. Research shows conclusively that winter tires save lives and reduce road-accident

Colleen Cote (Nicoll) – June 7, 1960 - November 10, 2013 Interment followed in the Dryden Cemetery. Prayers were recited Sunday, December 1, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in the Moffat Chapel of the Stevens Funeral Home. If friends desire donations may be made to the Ontario Heart & Stroke Foundation through the Stevens Funeral Homes P.O. Box 412, Dryden ON P8N 2Z1.

Winter tires offer better traction, stopping power below 7 degrees celsius

injuries. A 2011 study by the Quebec government found that winter roadaccidents in the province have dropped five per cent since winter tire use was made mandatory by law in 2008. The research concludes that widespread use of winter tires prevents about 575 roadaccident injuries per winter in Quebec. The study also found that vehicle accidents resulting in death or serious injury are down three per cent. Some drivers unwisely opt not to use winter tires because their vehicle is equipped with Anti-lock Braking Systems, AllWheel Drive or FourWheel Drive. These systems however require sufficient traction to be effective and winter tires provide that needed traction. Another common inaccuracy is thinking that two winter tires, rather than a set of four, are sufficiently safe. This condition can create a traction imbalance between the front and rear wheel positions and make a vehicle hard to control, particularly when cornering. Proper tire inflation An important key to safe motoring in the coldweather months is proper tire inflation, which is harder to maintain in winter because of greater temperature fluctuations. Every five degree decrease in temperature results in a loss of about one psi in air pressure. A temperature drop of 15°C, for example, which is common in winter, typically results in 10 per cent loss of inflation. Under-inflated tires

Thank you The family of the late Jessie Apland would like to thank friends, neighbours and relatives who sent flowers, brought food, made donations to DECO Princess Court Auxiliary, telephoned, visited and attended the service. A special thank you to Dr. Cortens, the marvellous staff at the Dryden Regional Health Centre, Pastor Woods, and the ladies of the Lutheran Church.

have a smaller footprint, which weakens their grip. The result is diminished braking and handling characteristics, along with higher fuel consumption due to increased rolling resistance. During the cold-weather months, tire makers recommend that drivers measure their tire pressures at least once a month using a reliable tire gauge. If the tire is found to be under or overinflated, the pressure should be adjusted to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended level. Winter tire owners should also be aware that excessive tread wear can diminish traction. Tread depth should always be inspected at the start of the cold-weather driving season. Motorists who are uncertain if their tires are overly worn should consult with their local tire professional.

In loving memory of Colleen Cote (Nicoll). Born June 7, 1960, went home to the Lord November 10, 2013. Colleen was a happy, chatty, fun loving girl but at the age of 12 she became diabetic and with her great faith in the Lord and courage this did not keep her down as she was a faithful church member. Colleen had a great memory and could remember with detail as to what she wore on any certain day. She was educated in Dryden and achieved her Library Tech certification at Niagara College. Colleen enjoyed travelling as she made several trips with her college friend Wendy; they travelled to Nashville and Kentucky and went on a tour with a covered wagon train through Montana. She also travelled to New Zealand and Australia. In Dryden she worked as a Library Tech at various schools: Lillian Berg, Sprucedale, Oxdrift, and Pinewood. Then her adventurous spirit took her to Whitehorse where she worked as a Library Tech. Due to ill health she returned to Dryden where she met and married the love of her life Ray Cote. Shortly after they made their home in Fort Frances

where she worked at the St. Frances School Library. After three years she lost her sight but with the help of her good friend at the rehab, volunteers and the support of the staff, teachers and the director of education (also by her side her guide dog and constant companion Gracie) she was able to work another 10 more years. Colleen then retired as she now required dialysis. Colleen was well looked after thanks to her great nurses and Dr. Algie who all took excellent care of her. Thanks to her husband Ray, who was always there for her, often bringing her the roses which she loved. Thanks to her many friends who visited regularly and would take her out for breakfast, lunch, coffee, or supper and would bring her Communion. Country Blend was a part of her singing life which she truly enjoyed and they helped her and Louie cut a CD which we will always cherish. We thank all family and friends; Ray’s family from Dryden and Fort Frances who all helped at this sad time. Thanks to all the family and Colleen’s wonderful friends from Dryden, Fort Frances, Winnipeg, Boulder, Manitoba and Kentucky who came to visit her and played music, sang, shared memories, told jokes, and laughed also for the many phone calls as these all made her last days easier. Colleen was anxious and ready to meet with the ones that preceded her; Father Ray, Brother Bill, and others. She taught us to be positive in all things big and small and her laughter will always be
