yuletide phenomenon of Marde Singleton. After dominating our annual poster contest throughout her early childhood, to my utter amazement her very first essay submission was selected from among dozens for first place in her Grade 5/6 age category. Her essay on turning off your cell phones and tuning back into family

was edged with palpable frustration and sincerity — the kind of writing that gives a piece of oneself to anyone who reads it. It’s the very best kind. Singleton isn’t the only participant to bridge the gap from success in the posters to success in the essay competition. Last year’s Grade 3/4 poster contest winner Shaymus Stevenson landed him-

self an honourable mention for his unique tweak on the Christmas tradition — having Tooth Fairy and Easter Bunny combine forces to take over Christmas operations and give Santa Claus a well deserved year off. Be sure to check out the Grade 7/8 category winner Kirston Carpenter ’s winning essay on

page 5. Judges were entranced by her wonderful approach to structure — building her essay around some poignant lyrics of the Christmas carol ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas’. Poster winners did not disappoint either digging into the theme of Cartoon Christmas with a great variety of classics represented from Charlie

Brown’s Christmas to the popular Polar Express and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Twelve local sponsors were as generous as ever in 2013 providing approximately $800 in prizes. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all who participated. Great job! - Chris Marchand

Ticketed during school concert? Merry Christmas to you too, Dryden police To the editor: It’s too bad the Dryden Police can’t be a little more respectful to our citizens in the holiday season. Today we went to St. Joseph’s school to help celebrate Xmas with our grand daughter by attending her program. As we all know parking is very limited in the area. We were there for approximately an hour. When we came out, the Dryden police had tickets on windshields all over the place.

Not in front of the school in the no parking zone but wherever they could find an excuse. Mostly too close to corners and things like that. I realize the town is in financial trouble, but must the “Dryden police” try to get a bunch of easy tickets on people who want to celebrate with the youngsters? I just shake my head!

Durance’s Christmas Cheer initiative left resident inspired To the editor: Kudos to Mr. Durance of Kano Reid for supporting our local Christmas Cheer, and by doing so, spreading a little Christmas cheer of his own. On the afternoon of December 17, I went into Kano Reid for an afternoon tea. I was delighted to hear that in lieu of payment, they were accepting donations for Christmas Cheer, or you could sing a festive holiday song, and receive your drink for free. Seeing that I’m a horrible singer, and in an effort to keep the howling

dogs at bay, I opted to donate. I returned to work and thought about this all day. What a fantastic way to raise a little extra cash for a local organization who needs our support at this time of year. The generosity in this simple act left me feeling inspired. Merry Christmas to Mr Durance and his staff at Kano Reid, as well as other business owners in this community who continue to give from their hearts. Jessica Loughery Dryden

Tim Hudak should watch his rhetoric on pensions An open letter to Tim Hudak: I retired this year at age 65 after 25 years service in the Ontario Public Service. My pension is $1,106.56 per month before deductions. I am glad to know that you consider that amount to be “gold plated”. What do you call your pension as a Member of Provincial Parliament? William Laidlaw Dryden

Too much Toastmasters on a snowy night atherine Kellar the District 64 C Division B Governor came to Northwestern Ontario at the end of January 2013 to do a training and club boosting tour of the Toastmaster clubs in Area 22. On Thursday, January 31st she and I attended a tough 2 club joint meeting and open house in Kenora. On Friday she held a training meeting for the executive of the Dryden Toastmasters. On Saturday Catherine and Diann Redden travelled to Red Lake for a meeting with their club. The last scheduled meeting was an evening open house followed by officer training in Sioux Lookout on Monday, February 4th. We drove to Sioux Lookout in a worsening storm, Catherine and Diann in Catherine’s truck with Sam (dog) and I following in my truck. Storm warnings on the radio told us how bad the blizzard was going to be. After the open house meeting was over I decided to head home before the storm got worse, the ladies had to stay for the officer training. When I got out on the highway the snow wasn't quite blinding but there was 6 to 8 inches of snow on the road. Luckily for me there was one set of tire tracks going south. The blowing snow got worse as I drove. In four wheel drive

it took more than an hour to go 65 km from S.L. to Highway 17 and the eyestrain was terrible. Highway 17 was well plowed but the blowing snow was really bad every time I met another vehicle. I was happy to get home after a nearly two hour drive that normally would take one hour. When I got into bed my eyes were still staring. After 30 minutes I got up to get something to help me sleep. I keep Wyborowa and Crown Royal under the kitchen sink, strictly for medicinal purposes. I had about three ounces of the Crown Royal in a large glass of water then watched a boring show on TV for about 45 minutes. As soon as my head hit the pillow for the second time, I was asleep. I found myself in a large white cube van that Catherine was driving. The back of the van was full of Toastmaster supplies that we were taking to a new

club at Couchiching First Nation near Fort Frances. We turned the corner onto Highway 502, the road from Dryden to Fort Frances that is two miles from our house. We were driving in fat snowflakes in a late, gloomy dusk. Two hundred yards away I saw a dark animal on the right hand snow bank. It was too small to be a moose and too dark to be a wolf, cougar or deer. When we were close to where the dark animal was, three skinny black monkeys crossed the road in front of us. The monkeys were on all fours with long tails curling over their backs. The closest monkey turned its head. Its long head of hair was cut on a bias under its ear and it had District 64 Governor Bev Doern's face with a big smile on. The second monkey had a small baby monkey hanging on the back of its neck, it had Emma's face (Emma Frost D-64 Lieutenant Governor of Education). The third monkey never looked at us, but toastmasters speculate that it must have been Dorian (Dorian Gerrard Lieutenant Governor of Marketing ). I woke up for a minute to write notes in my notebook. The next morning all that was written on the page was: " Too Much Toastmasters", but I remembered the dream.

Colourful characters Walleye skin — the new leather of the north

Austin Waite, Part Two was telling you about visiting Austin Waite’s place to pick up perennial rootstock to landscape my place, that would have been in 1973. Austin had a parcel of several acres on the west side of the river, just north of the extension of Ross Street, mostly a rocky site with a rocky point protruding out into the river. Soil was thin or non-existent over most of the site, and he had garden patches all over wherever he could find enough dirt. I suppose the most interesting thing about the house was the stove. He had a heavy steel tank, perhaps two cubic yards in dimension, and inside it a smaller steel tank to serve as a firebox, with a second steel tank above it, connected so the smoke went through this empty tank on its way to the chimney. The space between the tanks was filled with fist-sized rocks, good solid granite boulders gathered from gravel pits, and the whole thing heavily insulated on the outside. Austin would build a big, hot fire long enough to heat the rocks, then let it go out. The thermostat on the wall was connected to a fan which circulated air through the rocks, then through the rooms when heat was needed. In the shoulder seasons, he might only need to light a fire every few days as the rocks would hold the heat. Austin’s yard was landscaped with heritage type perennials, and there were small garden patches here and there. The most interesting thing about the yard was a small building, almost just a cupboard really,

I

which was filled with artifacts Austin had dug up in his gardening adventures. Many were stones which appeared to not belong in Dryden, chipped and shaped into what appeared to be knives and arrowheads and tools of some sort. There were metal, wood and leather items, I really cannot recall specific details other than many seemed quite old, so it seemed these accumulated over many years until perhaps quite recent times. The river is quite wide and placid at that point, however, if we think back a hundred and fifty years, before the dam or even the CPR, it would have been much narrower and much faster, and as one proceeded from the lake, Austin’s point might have been the last good, safe landing point. If we look at a map, the river hooks sharply to the west below the mill. Old golfers will remember the little creek carrying some suspiciouslooking water across the east end of the old golf course, which became a deep ravine to the south, across the CPR and into the mill yard. This has been since filled up with bark, the start of what some call ‘Reed Mountain’. So by far the shortest and easiest portage around the Dryden rapids would have been northwest from Austin’s point around this ravine to the river.

an has been making M all manner of items from animal hide for a very long time. Everything from jackets, to shoes to fishing line has been constructed from the parts of all sorts of beasts. And yes, fish have been used for a variety of items over the years as well. Yet a company from the Pembina Valley, in Manitoba, is doing an impressive job carving out a very unique niche. The name Big Eye Leather gives you some clue, but when you see the products, it soon becomes clear the company is using walleye skin to make wallets and knife cases. “I’ve been in the taxidermy and tanning business for 41 years,” says Big Eye Leather founder Clint Boyd. “I’ve tanned everything that was alive. I always looked at the situation that they could tan shark skin, eel skin and salmon, but I always liked the look of a walleye.” Boyd started to experiment with walleye skin. His subsequent success tanning walleye did not happen over night. He says it took him 20 out of his 41 years as a taxidermist and tanner to perfect what has become a secret recipe. He says the walleye skin is just that much different. “Well, for tanning, every

skin or hide has different properties,” he says. ”It has different grain and texture.” Boyd says like any animal, walleye have unique fats that have to be removed. He says getting to the right mix to tan a walleye hide took time, but he has perfected it. “A lot of people would like to have my recipe,” he says. “ I have been asked to sell it.” When you first feel the tanned walleye skin, it has a slightly rough, but still suede-like texture. All the scales are out of the fish skin but the scale pocket remains. Boyd says as you wear the walleye skin wallet, it starts to smooth out. In time the wallet looks like the actual scale is still left in it. That makes for a very attractive and highly unique fashion accessory. The walleye skin products include a wallet and knife sheath. They come in natural walleye, or a variety of attractive, re-coloured shades. The product is both lightweight, and remarkably tough. Boyd says its strength holds up against regular leather quite well.

A sample of Clint Boyd’s walleye skin wallets and knife cases. Photo: G. Ellis “We have tested it on a tensile strength machine at a tannery,” says Boyd. “The walleye leather is as strong as, and sometimes better than, actual cow hide leather.” One of the questions Boyd is frequently asked is where all the fish skins his company uses come from. The mind reels at the thought of trying to track down intact walleye skins. It turns out he has a good source in Manitoba: the commercial fishing industry. “We work with the stuff that is a regular size fillet,” says Boyd. “.Sometimes we end up with a few big ones,

but mostly they are the ‘eater size’ fillet skins.” So far, Boyd says the Big Eye Leather fish products have been a huge hit with consumers. He says the company is selling walleye skin wallets in large stores such as Cabelas in Canada, as well as smaller shops like D&R Sporting Goods, in Thunder Bay. Boyd says when people walk by a table at a sports show and see all sorts of items in all colours, the response is nearly always the same. “‘Oh, man that is awesome!’” he says with a laugh. “I’ve heard that so many times.”

Christmas on the moon By Ernest Kent, New Prospect School You know the greatest holiday of the year? It’s Christmas, well for some people. In this little story I’m going to change up Christmas. Sometimes you look up at the moon and wish you could go there? Well, instead of Christmas on earth, how about Christmas on the moon?

Clever ways to give cash gifts (MS) -- Whether it's for a couple on their wedding day, a youngster just graduating high school or as a birthday gift to a beloved family member, cash has become an increasingly popular gift in recent years. Once considered impersonal, cash is now a go-to gift for shoppers whose foremost concerns are putting smiles on their loved ones' faces. Those who still hesitate at the thought of giving an envelope full of cash, take

note: There are many clever ways to give green that make cash gifts just as enjoyable to give as to receive. * Steer clear of cold cash. Regardless of how thoughtful it may be, a greeting card with cash inside does not exactly elicit the warm sentiments synonymous with special occasions like weddings, graduations or the holiday season. When giving monetary gifts, gifters might want to get a little more creative. At

Plumfund.com, thoughtful gift givers can set up a cash fund for their loved ones free of charge. Contributors to this account can pledge money in the form of cash or a personal check at no cost, or make direct online payments into the account for a minimal processing fee. Once the big day arrives, recipients will receive their gifts and no doubt appreciate the less conventional but far more creative route chosen by their loved ones. Gifters who make online

contributions can do so through Plumfund's integrated WePay solution, a simple two-step system that makes it easy for recipients to withdraw their money, make an electronic transfer to a personal bank account or choose a paper check, all without incurring withdrawal fees. Recipients may also choose to have their cash gifts immediately deposited into their PayPal accounts. * Put it on plastic. In many ways, carrying cash has become less convenient

Happy Holidays Thank you for your continued support.

than swiping debit or credit cards when making purchases big and small. This is especially true when gifting recently minted grads or newlyweds about to head overseas, where swiping a credit or debit card is far easier than waiting in currency exchange lines at airports or hotels. Gifters who want to make their cash gifts even more convenient can purchase a prepaid debit or credit card that recipients can use anywhere, whether it's buying trinkets at an overseas souvenir shop or filling up the car with fuel on a postgraduation road trip. * Pool your resources. Another unique way to give cash gifts is to pool your resources with fellow loved ones. Plumfund.com does not restrict the number of people who can contribute to a given account, making it much easier for family members to pool their resources when gifting cash to their loved ones. This is especially

convenient when loved ones have expensive bigticket items on their holiday wish lists or wedding registries. Such was the case with David, a soon-to-be 60year-old avid skiier who aimed to hit the slopes in Colorado for a few days. Recognizing his love of skiing, David's family and friends organized a Plumfund for him, raising $860 that David used to finance his trip, including his flight to Colorado, ski rentals, accommodations, and even some money for a night out on the town. Once a Plumfund account has been established, gifters can get the word out to their loved ones via social media, email or by word of mouth. Cash has become an increasingly popular and convenient option when gifting loved ones on special occasions. Gifters now have a host of options at their disposal to make their cash gifts more unique.

Athletes of the Week Megan Mackinnon By Emmy Arsenault Tenth grader Megan Mackinnon is female Athlete of the Week at DHS for her excellence on the volleyball and basketball courts. She is currently a setter for the junior girls’ volleyball team, while earlier in the year she played point guard for the junior girls’ basketball team. Her favourite memory of being an athlete at DHS is playing in the NorWOSSA basketball final. Over the season, Mackinnon hopes for her volleyball team to work hard to achieve results on the court and have fun while doing it. She also thinks her team needs to improve on their serving and passing on the volleyball court. In the little time she isn’t playing sports, Mackinnon enjoys reading and relaxing.

Ray Cook By Nicole Ngyugen Dryden High School’s male Athlete of the Week is being awarded to Junior Boys basketball player Ray Cook. This year Cook has participated in cross-country running and junior boys volleyball. For the basketball season, Cook aspires to win NorWOSSA and hopes that his team will come together and play nice for their final game. When Cook has time to himself he enjoys to play sports outside and spend time at home with his family. High hopes for you this season Cook!

Christmas Day is now biggest day in movie business (MS) - Christmas Day has become a big day in the movie business. Many studios now release big-budget films on December 25th, and audiences have recently flocked to the theaters to see some of their favorite stars in films that opened on Christmas Day or shortly before. According to Box Office Mojo, an online movie publication and box

office reporting service, no film has fared better on Christmas Day than “Sherlock Holmes,” which premiered on December 25, 2009, earning just under $25 million in its initial day onscreen. “Avatar,” the 2009 James Cameron film that would go on to gross $760 million in domestic receipts alone, holds the distinction of earning the

second most money on Christmas Day, when it earned a little more than $23 million despite having already been out in the theaters one full week. The 2004 Ben Stiller

film “Meet the Fockers” opened three days before Christmas but still managed to earn $19.5 million on Christmas Day. A pair of 2012 films, the latest big screen adaptation of “Les

Miserables” ($18 million) and Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” ($15 million), round out the top five highest grossing films on Christmas Day. Numerous films are slated to open

on December 25, 2013, including Stiller’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” starring Chris Pine and Kevin Costner.

World’s most popular Christmas songs (MS) - Decorations and shopping are integral parts of the holiday season, but very often it is the music being played over the airwaves that sets the tone for the festivities to come. Christmas music has been enjoyed for decades and certain compositions are widely loved and played year after year. The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, who compiles lists of the most popular songs, lists “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” and “Winter Wonderland,” both of which were written in 1934, as the oldest and most popular tunes. The newest popular song is “Wonderful Christmastime,” composed in 1979. Though personal preference often determines a holiday playlist, the following tunes are of the more popular Christmas songs: * “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)” - Mel Torme, Robert Wells * “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” - Fred Coots, Haven Gillespie * “Have Yourself a Merry Little

Christmas” - Ralph Blane, Hugh Martin * “Winter Wonderland” - Felix Bernard, Richard B. Smith * “White Christmas” - Irving Berlin * “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” - Sammy Cahn, Jule Styne * “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” - Johnny Marks * “Jingle Bell Rock” - Joseph Carleton Beal, James Ross Boothe * “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” Walter Kent, Kim Gannon, Buck Ram * “Little Drummer Boy” - Katherine K. Davis, Henry V. Onorati, Harry Simeone * “Sleigh Ride” - Leroy Anderson, Mitchell Parish * “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” - Edward Pola, George Wyle * “Silver Bells” - Jay Livingston, Ray Evans * “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” - Johnny Marks * “Feliz Navidad” - Jose Feliciano

* “Blue Christmas” - Billy Hayes, Jay W. Johnson * “Frosty the Snowman” - Steve Nelson, Walter E. Rollins * “A Holly Jolly Christmas” - Johnny Marks * “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” - Tommie Connor * “Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)” Gene Autry, Oakley Haldeman * “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” - Meredith Willson * “(There’s No Place Like) Home for the Holidays” - Bob Allen, Al Stillman * “Carol of the Bells” - Peter J. Wilhousky, Mykola Leontovich * “Santa Baby” - Joan Ellen Javits, Philip Springer, Tony Springer * “Wonderful Christmastime” Paul McCartney “White Christmas” is the most covered Christmas song of all time. There are more than 500 versions in several different languages.

December 22 - December 28 ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, some difficulty awaits you, but you are strong and fully capable of handling what's coming your way. Maintain your composure and stick it out a little longer.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Some added confidence is all you need to get back on the right track, Libra. Things are bound to work out in your favor, especially when you put your mind to something.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, this is your week to shine and let everyone at work know just how talented and devoted you are to the team. Enjoy the fanfare while you can get it.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, just when skepticism seems to be taking over, you will discover once in a while there are a few surprises with happy endings. Enjoy your good luck.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Distractions are lurking, Gemini, but you will still manage to get things done. Somehow you find the focus needed to muddle through all the work.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, though unusual, your behavior might seem perfectly reasonable to you. But unless you share your thoughts with others, they may wonder what is going on.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Trust someone close to you with a few of your secrets, Cancer. Holding them in may only cause you grief in the long run. Don't worry, your confidante will be supportive.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Remember that words said in the heat of the moment will not soon be forgotten, Capricorn. Don't forget to employ some tact when discussing serious matters with loved ones.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, an investment opportunity has piqued your interest. Until you sign over the funds, be sure to research everything thoroughly and call in some expert advice.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, this week you will have to be very convincing if you want plans to go your way. Brush up on your approach and give thought to exactly what it is you want to say.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you have a lot on your plate, but you can handle it on your own. If things are to get done, you will get them accomplished of your own accord, even if it takes longer.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Take a few days to let your mind wander, Pisces. You will probably find being a free spirit to be a refreshing break from the norm.

December 22 - December 28 ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, some difficulty awaits you, but you are strong and fully capable of handling what's coming your way. Maintain your composure and stick it out a little longer.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Some added confidence is all you need to get back on the right track, Libra. Things are bound to work out in your favor, especially when you put your mind to something.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, this is your week to shine and let everyone at work know just how talented and devoted you are to the team. Enjoy the fanfare while you can get it.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, just when skepticism seems to be taking over, you will discover once in a while there are a few surprises with happy endings. Enjoy your good luck.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Distractions are lurking, Gemini, but you will still manage to get things done. Somehow you find the focus needed to muddle through all the work.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, though unusual, your behavior might seem perfectly reasonable to you. But unless you share your thoughts with others, they may wonder what is going on.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Trust someone close to you with a few of your secrets, Cancer. Holding them in may only cause you grief in the long run. Don't worry, your confidante will be supportive.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Remember that words said in the heat of the moment will not soon be forgotten, Capricorn. Don't forget to employ some tact when discussing serious matters with loved ones.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, an investment opportunity has piqued your interest. Until you sign over the funds, be sure to research everything thoroughly and call in some expert advice.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, this week you will have to be very convincing if you want plans to go your way. Brush up on your approach and give thought to exactly what it is you want to say.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you have a lot on your plate, but you can handle it on your own. If things are to get done, you will get them accomplished of your own accord, even if it takes longer.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Take a few days to let your mind wander, Pisces. You will probably find being a free spirit to be a refreshing break from the norm.

When you get this message show me a real bright star. Then I will know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking down at us and not so very far. You will always, Remain in our hearts in that special place, Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not so far apart. We love and miss you dearly especially at Christmas time. So know how much we love and miss you.
