Ice igloo a celebration of winter By Chris Marchand There’s something rare and remarkable about the air at -35 degrees Celsius. It allows you to do things you can’t normally do with simple materials like water and snow and the results can be magical. Dave Lyle and Kristan Stansfield know this all too well, the duo having constructed a stunning igloo from hundreds of

blocks of ice — frozen in milk cartons during the deep freeze which has gripped North America. “Any other winter I would have hated the cold, but it was perfect for freezing ice blocks together,” said Lyle. “When the last brick was placed, he immediately climbed up on top of it and we knew it was frozen hard,” added Stansfield. Inspired by a viral
Internet post from last winter, Stansfield actually tracked down the Edmonton household whose design they emulated. “I contacted Brigitte Burton out in Alberta who had done the project last year and she gave me all the hints about what didn’t work and what did work,” said Stansfield. “It helped me out quite a bit.” Lyle says half the town got involved in saving

their milk cartons which they used to freeze blocks, coloured with food colouring. “We called all of our friends, put it on Facebook — Starbucks was very helpful to us and we recycled a lot of what would have went into the landfill. We froze about 1,000 blocks.” “If you want to come visit in August, it might still be here.”

An effort to recover a larger portion of operational costs will result in some significant rate hikes for the North Dryden soccer fields and ball diamonds. Presenting the plan to city council at a Feb. 18 meeting, Community and Development Services Manager Bill Cunningham says KPMG suggested a cost recovery rate in the area of 43 per cent in its examination of potential cost-saving/revenue generation opportunities for the city. While the Dryden Memorial Arena and adjacent pool and fitness centre are currently meeting those cost recovery objectives — at 64.4 per cent and 46.5 per cent respectively, the outdoor venue have a ways to go. In 2013, soccer players paid $2,727 in fees while maintenance of the site cost the city $19,380. While the prospect of a 220 per cent increase in rates to bring the soccer fields up to the 43 per cent recovery rate sounded par-
“Both those organizations affected have done a number of things to improve facilities in our community. I think it’s counter-productive to raise fees in regards to their activities..” -Councillor Shayne MacKinnon ticularly onerous to council, Cunningham says Dryden Youth Soccer’s sheer
size (450 players) will allow it to absorb the costs with relatively minimal conse-
quences — a $6.83 raise in each player’s annual fees. Ball diamonds rates face a 65 per cent increase, which Cunningham says would affect the 400 minor ball players to the tune of $2.25 of additional fees per season. But councillors were not so quick to support the plan which saw hourly adult resident ball diamonds rates spike from $16 to $26.40 ($33 for non-residents). Continued
Deep, drifting snow on top of already slushy ice conditions has made it impossible to maintain a passable road across Wabigoon Lake, say the local committee responsible for the Wabigoon Lake Ice Road. With drifts narrowing the road every night and the weight of the snow causing slush to once again form underneath, the machines now find it unworkable according to Brian Davidson who heads up the ice road board. Some, but not all residents living along the rural byways accessed by Wabigoon Lake Rd., who rely upon the lake route in the winter months to cut their commute to town in half, currently pay $40 per year towards maintaining the ice road. Yet, after a year like it’s been, there are talks of an increase. Brad Pollock is one resident who has been notified of the potential increase says that there may be a better way to keep things open longer. “Maybe we need to get a bigger company out there with bigger machines to make it wider initially and help combat the issue with the blowing snow.” Other area residents say that the ice road board should approach ice shack owners and other frequent users to possibly pitch in to help cover some of the costs, because without a useable road, the ice shacks would not be there. Davidson advises that the ice shacks currently on the road should be fine until spring when the ice comes up and that you can still access them on foot, but unfortunately the road itself will remain closed for the season, unless a twist of fate delivers some good fortune. “We did our best,” said Davidson.
City’s Chief Financial Officer resigns By Chris Marchand Dryden City Council expressed what might be best described as dismay at city Treasurer Adrienne Bodnarchuk’s announcement of her intention to vacate her position, effective April 30. The matter came to light at the Feb. 18 regular meeting of council in which an amended agenda was produced to accommodate Bodnarchuk’s announcement. Earlier in the meeting, during Bodnarchuk’s staff report regarding
city user fees, Mayor Craig Nuttall apologized to the treasurer for some earlier transgression, the details of which attendees of the open meeting were not privy to. Bodnarchuk did not wish to speak to the press on the matter and City Manager André Larabie described the situation as ‘personal’. Larabie added that the city would begin the search for a new Chief Financial Officer the following day. Bodnarchuk assumed the troubled post in September of 2012, declared Acting City Treasurer on
the heels of the resignation of Linda McNaughton and was eventually made CFO. Councillors acknowledged her significant efforts in assessing the scope of the municipality’s financial challenges and helping the city ‘right its financial ship’. “Nobody knows, Adrienne, how much you’ve done for this community better than I,” said Councillor Martin MacKinnon. “I’m very upset that you’ve chosen to move on, but I wish you all the best and nothing but the best.”

Parents offer concerns over school board plan for Grade 7-12 model Second consultation session set for Feb. 26 at DHS By Samantha Hawkins Concerned parents voiced their opinions about a proposed plan to move Grades 7 and 8 into the high school seting in Dryden, Feb. 18. Keewatin-Patricia District School Board (KPDSB) Superintendent of Education Caryl Hron began the consultation by informing the fifty or so parents, students, caregivers and school board members in attendance at the DHS Feb. 18 meeting, that the purpose was to provide background information on the 7-12 model, to listen and receive feedback from the community and to pass that feedback on to the KPDSB Trustees so that they may make an informed decision regarding the possibility of a DHS Grade 7-12 model. “These are the very beginning stages of what would be a two year process.” Hron continued, explaining that no decision has been made as of yet. “We want to make sure it is what parents in the area want. It really is a process.” Parents and students alike wasted no time in voicing their concerns. DHS student Brock Penner said, “I see the social aspect around the school (DHS) and I can see the difference in the way students interact coming from Grade 8 and going through Grades 9 through 12, they change and not necessarily for the better in a lot of situations. Sometimes its good, there are lots of great students here, but frequently you can walk down the halls and hear things you don’t want to hear, especially coming from an eleven year old. So forcing adult pressure on someone who’s eleven is just something I wouldn’t be comfortable with.” His comment received a huge round of applause from those in attendance. Other concerns voiced included those regarding the leadership opportunities that would be lost. A mother of four explained her apprehension, “They very much look forward to
their Grade 7 and 8 years because they have that opportunity then to be the oldest in the school, they can be student leaders, they have that opportunity to build their confidence and their independence and maturity before they go to high school.” When asked what kind of leadership opportunities this Grade 7-12 model would provide students, Hron explained that DHS would have wonderful opportunities and that it is definitely something they would have to look at when planning the model to fit Dryden and its students. The model, according to Hron, would include a school within a school platform, similar to that at Beaver Brae and would provide more opportunities to engage students by allowing them the opportunity to try the different classes such as shop, music, drama, and cosmetology while giving the students more time to acclimate. Some parents were concerned that this would be too many choices for an eleven year old and that the anxiety for some kids would be too great and go un-noticed as they would no longer be “little fish in a big pond, but chum in a huge pond.” Many other questions were posed and some answered, but the general consensus was that they don’t have all of the answers yet. The school board is gathering information and if a Grade 7-12 school is something the community wants then parents, teachers and students will all be involved in the modeling process as KPDSB forms a model to fit Dryden and its students. KPDSB will be hosting a final information session at DHS on Feb. 26 at 7:00pm with tours available starting at 6:30pm. The public is also invited to fill out an online survey available at www.kpdsb.on.ca, (once per computer). The power point presentation given at the Feb.18 session is also available online and Hron encourages people to view the Upper Grand website www.ugdsb.on.ca to see the Student Success 7-12 Annual Report as they have already converted 19 out of 20 of their schools into the Grade 7-12 model. Questions about the upcoming public consultation or the online survey, please contact Sheena Valley at the Keewatin Patricia District School Board at 2235311 extension 247.
Hmmm....maybe not! A motorist thinks better of trying to navigate now impassable Wabigoon Lake Ice Road, turning his truck around near the north landing. The rural roads board that oversees the road’s maintenance has exhausted its funds trying to keep up with an overwhelming barrage of slush and ever drifting snow that has conspired to steadily narrow the road in recent weeks. Stranded ice shack owners are now contemplating their next move in an effort to get their huts off the lake. Photo by Samantha Hawkins
Non-residents user fees to rise by 25 per cent By Chris Marchand User fees at city-owned recreational facilities are heading for a hike and those who aren’t on the city’s tax rolls can expect to pay an extra 25 per cent. Community and Development Services Manager Bob Cunningham walked Dryden City Council through a plan to equalize support for operational costs for area residents who live outside of the city’s taxation area, yet access services subsidized by ratepayers to the tune of $274.70 per household. Cunningham says the 25 per cent figure is based upon a model established by
Fort Frances, whose circumstances bear many similarities to Dryden. In order to access the resident rate, users will have to establish their residency through records, identification, or other documentation. The only facility not affected is the Dryden Memorial Arena, which already has non-resident rates in effect and was not included in this most recent rates hike. Assuming that non-resident users will account for five per cent for all recreation facilities, Cunningham says the non resident revenues are projected to yield $35,000 annually.
Large user base will minimize affects of fee increases Continued
Councillor Shayne MacKinnon requested a recorded vote on the ball diamonds matter and was joined in his opposition to the rate hikes on principle by Councillor Martin MacKinnon in the vote, which ultimately passed 3-2. “I don’t agree that we should be increasing those
fees,” said MacKinnon. “Both of those organizations affected have done a number of things to improve facilities in our community and I think it’s counter-productive for us to raise fees in regards to their activities.” Councillor Mary Trist offered her support for the vote based on the minimal impact of spreading the
burden of the increases among a significant volume of facility users. “I’m trying to bring it down to what it means for an individual who takes their kids down to sign up — what’s this going to mean for them?” said Trist. “Granted, any
increase is not good and there’s no denying the tremendous good members of both those clubs have done in Dryden, but I will support it.” Councillor Martin MacKinnon was the second dissenting voice. “I came off those fields

Kicking at the darkness

Nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight. Gotta kick at the darkness til’ it bleeds daylight. — Bruce Cockburn, Lovers In Dangerous Time
“There’s so much negativity.” f course there is. There always has been.
O The only variable is the degree to which we let other people’s darkness become our own. Darkness is a good metaphor for negativity — most of which is blind, uninformed and based on fear of a future we cannot know. My job is to bathe in this stuff week to week — to process it for mass consumption so that it might be put to some higher use. You can’t escape negativity, nor should you try. You can only avoid the temptation to stare, paralyzed, into the abyss yourself. I bristle when politicians talk about trying to control negativity in the community as though anyone should aspire to have dominion over such a social dynamic. What they really mean by that is ‘not sharing information that might upset people’, as though blissful ignorance is some preferable state of affairs. Thankfully, we as a community seem to have grown out of such a fool’s game. The way is harder now, but y’know, there are ways to stay happy under such constant bombardment. I’m talking about hobbies, people. There’s a couple on Duke St. out in their backyard building an igloo out of hundreds of coloured ice blocks. Why? Because it’s awesome! (Plus it’s too cold to do anything else). This weekend the cast and crew of a community theatre group wrapped up a nine-month project that many claimed had a transformative impact on their lives and has already raised over $10,000 for the hospital’s oncology unit in an ongoing campaign. The other day I watched Diane Kameda be coaxed onto an Open Mic stage at the Masonic Lodge where she proceeded to knock everyone’s socks off. When I think of these few examples from my life, I don’t have to look very far to find something I’m proud of in Dryden, it’s all around me. Passion for community thrives here in people I can only aspire to emulate. Their lesson is that there’s a choice to be made each day of whether you will take to Facebook to complain about your street not yet being plowed, or if you will spend what daylight remains making some physical mark upon your world to share with the people around you. Perhaps to build something greater than the sum of its parts using words, wood, ice blocks, accordions, a snowblower — whatever you’ve got at hand. Embrace negativity. It acknowledges the enormity of our challenges and makes our triumphs all the sweeter. As darkness, recognize it as the absence of light — a void free of passion and faith in what you hold dear. Finally, know that life’s simply too short to waste on things you don’t actually intend to do anything about. By Chris Marchand
Letters to the editor
Feds not serious on trades support To the editor: I read your article on Minister Rickford's take of the budget with a fair amount of wonderment and contempt. The Minister prattled on about the apprenticeship program like he actually knew some thing about it. He had the party line down pat and that is where it ended. Mr. Minister to get an apprenticeship you need to work for a union or a company and be registered with the Provincial Ministry Trades, Colleges & Universities Once a person becomes an apprentice he or she must work in that trade for a given amount of hours usually 2000 per segment, then they are allowed to go to trade school to upgrade their skills. Most trades apprenticeships last three or four years. After they finish all their courses and become journeymen they then
write the red seal. Yet just this month his government allowed Pacer Promac to replace 70 union Ironworkers many who were apprentices, with 70 Croatian Temporary Foreign Workers How, I ask the Minister, is an apprentice to get these hours if his government allows partly skilled workers in this country without a red seal to replace qualified Canadian journeymen and apprentices. The company put out a press release that they rehired these men, but in reality they rehired 6 men, none of whom were apprentices. Mr. Minister for this program to work Canadians must be employed not Croatian TFW'S. The reality is that it is all smoke and mirrors at the expense of many good young Canadians. I am sure the minister has a party answer to the effect that his party has
Big lake, too close for comfort To the editor: Those people who think they have exclusive rights to certain fishing spots and who don’t like people putting ice huts on the lake ‘because they are an eyesore’ are behaving like children. Anyone has as much right to put their fish hut on the lake where they want as they do to fish where they want. Bringing 10-15 people on snowmachines up beside the hut, drilling holes (two per person) all
around the fish hut and down the plowed road on two different days until the road and whole area is flooded — how ignorant! While it’s their right to fish where they want, do they have to make life miserable for others whose ice huts are now frozen into the lake as a result? Eagle Lake is 70 miles long. There are hundreds of lakes all around. This is unacceptable. R.L. Moore Ignace
or is fixing the system, 70 hard working Canadians would beg to differ! David Foley Dryden
Praise for volunteer drivers To the editor: Many thanks to those great volunteer drivers who so generously donate their time to driving the Red Cross van to take seniors to Kenora or Thunder Bay for medical treatment. This is not about money, but a matter of convenience as many of us do not wish to travel by bus or be a bother to friends and relatives.

had nested on the Rugby River the previous summer. I contacted quite a few people in Eton-Rugby asking if they had seen any of the majestic white wading birds, everyone said that they had only seen them the year before, but not that summer. I read on the Internet that Great Egrets were nesting in small numbers in southern Ontario and in small areas in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Later in August (2011) I drove a hundred miles out of my way to a swamp in Saskatchewan where there were supposed to be 6 of them, it was pouring rain when I got there and I never saw any. Great Egrets or Common Egrets are only slightly smaller than a Great Blue Heron and have a similar lifestyle. They are all white except for black legs and a yellow bill. Great Egrets are found in tropical to temperate climates around the world. The range maps for Cornell U.
and Wikipedia both show them only breeding south of the Canadian border but my Stokes book shows a small circle in the middle of Manitoba as a place where they regularly breed. North American birds winter in areas from Florida south into South America. Great Egrets in North America were driven to the edge of extinction in the late 1800s when they were hunted for their feathers, the beautiful plumes that grow from their backs in breeding season were used to adorn women’s hats. Great Egrets were one of the first birds species to be protect-

Canada’s class system in action think history will be much I kinder to Rob Ford than Canada is being right now. I am not a Rob Ford fan, bluster and bluff and bullying turn me off, spoiled-brat juvenile antics turn me off, but I think he is getting a raw deal, with the grotesquely over-thetop scrutiny of his every moment, at a cost of millions of our tax dollars. This is not a local issue, though it might have some local relevance, but my sense of fairness prompts me to offer this contrarian point of view. Back in my university days, a lifetime ago, an Art exhibition appeared on the University of Manitoba campus. A couple of my classmates went to see, and came back talking
about what a load of baloney it was (well, baloney was not quite the word they used). After some discussion, we came up with a class project wherein we all kicked in to buy an authentic canvas and real artists’ paint and supplies. Some of our boys contributed their talents and produced a piece of ‘modern art’, which was signed M. E. Troisieme, a thinly veiled moniker for ‘third year mechanical engineers’. They smuggled it into the art exhibit, and it survived almost until the end of the show before it was detected as a fraud. Our boys would loiter around pretending to be art critics to listen to the comments of the artsy folks, and these were no more critical of
our fraud than of the genuine paintings posted there. Comments like ‘oh, this one strikes an emotional chord’, or ‘evocative of a storm looming over a battlefield’, or ‘look at the interplay of pastels and strong colour on this one’, but no comments like the ones in our lab, which were more like ‘evocative of a dog’s breakfast, regurgitated on a kitchen floor’.
This story is to illustrate that Canada’s class system is mostly about pretentious nonsense. You don’t have to be smart or successful to be part of the Ruling Class, but you must at least pretend to understand the ‘finer things’. You must pay homage to the latest politically correct causes. You must behave according to standards, golf and skiing are good, while going hunting is definitely a no-no; wine is good but beer is not unless it is ‘artisan beer’; symphony or ballet or modern art are good, wrestling not so good; Bingo is definitely out while Las Vegas is de regeur; camping is out but cruises are ok; and above all you must accept that whatever CBC says is really news and
actual fact. The Ruling Class has been indignant ever since Ford got elected, he doesn’t even try to be one of them, no pretentions at all. They see this as simply intolerable, our nation is embarrassed, something must be done. These latté sippers of course dominate in our national media, hence the media’s cruel intrusion into Ford’s personal life. For example, good-old-boy Ford is crucified for his indiscretions regarding drugs, while the ruling class thinks it cool if its own members participate in the same game. Hypocrisy rules. What would they say if Forrest Gump were elected mayor?

Tournaments an important economic driver By Chris Marchand While Old Man Winter has pulled more than his share of accidental tourists off the Trans-Canada this winter, local hotelier Mike Readman says no force of nature can fill up hotel rooms quite like a minor hockey tournament. Sports tourism is becoming an increasingly important economic driver in the Dryden area. Situated almost dead centre in the far-flung Northwest, the community is a natural meeting point. This kind of convergence results in significant economic activity for local hotels, restaurants and retailers. “When it comes to the winter I think it’s crucial,” said Readman, General Manager of Best Western Plus Dryden Hotel and Conference Centre. “We do very well when the hotels are filling up with hockey tournament teams. It tends to be a Thursday to Sunday business and that really carries us through what
“We ﬁll up Dryden seven to eight times per year...you look around town and the restaurants are full and business is booming everywhere” -Brent Silander, President, Dryden Minor Hockey would normally be a very quiet part of the week. There’s not a lot of tourist traffic coming through this time of year. We definitely feel an impact if there isn’t teams in our building.” Calculating the scope of what tournaments con-
tribute isn’t easy, but Dryden Minor Hockey Association (DMHA) President Brent Silander says that an average of eight to 12 outof-town teams (approximately 50 people accompanying each) travel to the city for each of Dryden Minor Hockey Association’s seven or eight age group tournaments — an influx of as many as 600 visitors per tournament. “We fill Dryden up seven or eight times per year,” said Silander. “At the younger ages, it’s not just the son or the daughter coming to town it’s the whole family. During tournaments you look around town and the restaurants are full and business is booming everywhere.” Last season, DMHA’s ice bill totaled around $100,000 and Silander says the organization is tracking to spend $125,000 in 2013-2014. He says that DMHA still needs to access available ice outside of the community in Eagle Lake and
Vermilion Bay on a regular basis. With Dryden city council reviewing operations at all municipal facilities, Silander says arena facilities represent a far greater economic impact to the community than what the city collects in ice fees. “We have a nice facility there, I can’t see how that place wouldn’t be viable because we’re spending a lot of money there,” he said. “And we’re not the only ice user group either. There is ringette, figure skating, the Ice Dogs and broomball.” In January, the Kathy
Sanders Memorial Tournament featured 250 players across its age divisions. “It definitely helps the city,” said Dryden Girls Hockey Association’s Gary Nickle. “The teams are coming from Schreiber, Thunder Bay, Emo, Kenora. Dryden’s a pretty central spot to all of Northwestern Ontario.” The grand daddy tournament of the season, however, is set to take place March 10-16th as 28 teams from First Nations communities across the Northwest meet in Dryden for an 80game tournament.

Senior boys fall to Churchill Trojans in NWOSSA series Home court advantage wasn’t enough for Dryden High School’s senior boys basketball team in their bid to advance past a best-of-three NWOSSA championship series, Feb. 22. With adept scoring from the three-point line, Thunder Bay’s Churchill Trojans gained an early lead in Game One while the Eagles battled hard to remain within ten points of them with Nick Skillen accounting for 17 points and Kurtis Burnell leading with 22 points. Game One would end with a score of 77-62. The Trojans would seal their victory later that evening and secure a spot at provincial championships with an 8162 win. At right: Nick Skillen.

When I look in the water, my reflection is awesome By Samantha Hawkins
affects the local community. Hyslop says Dryden plays a key role in the success of swimming in the region. â€œThe growth in the past four to five years has been huge. Their (Drydenâ€™s) contribution to the region is significant, not just swimmers, but the push for coaching and competitions, not only regional but provincially as well.â€? Dryden acts as a sort of neutral zone, according to Hyslop, allowing for competitors and coaches from around the region to get together for training camps that attract coaches from as far away as Toronto. Dolphinâ€™s Head Coach Matt Taylor says their success is owed largely to founder Michelle DeConinck, â€œWe are very indebted to her sheâ€™s the reason weâ€™re here today.â€? When DeConinck started the Dolphins they had eight to twelve swimmers, now the clubâ€™s enrollment has grown to 62. With each swimmer practicing in the pool two to three days per week, plus
Despite the weather and wintery road conditions the swim meet held at the Dryden Recreation Complex over the Feb. 21st â€“ 22nd weekend saw an excellent turn out. Sixty four swimmers from all over the region, some even from the national level, came together to show their support for the Dryden Dolphinâ€™s tenth anniversary. Regional Director for Swim Ontario Janet Hyslop says that meets like the one held in Dryden over the weekend wonâ€™t usually attract national level competitors, but they came this weekend as a way of saying they believe this (swimming) is important, â€œto make a statement that we need this.â€? City council members Shayne MacKinnon, Ken Moss and Mary Trist also attended the second session on Feb. 21st after the Dolphins personally invited every council member to come and see how swimming
accessing the complexâ€™s other facilities such as the weight room and cardio equipment there is very little time for them to find trouble says Hyslop. â€œSwimming keeps so many kids out of trouble. We have here a bunch of hard working high-achievers with highly involved parents.â€? National level athletes will practice ten to eleven times per week for two hours at a time, but swimming is not just about growing an Olympic athlete according to Hyslop. â€œEvery child deserves a healthy outlet, a sport is for life, and in a town surrounded by water, water safety is essential, every child needs to learn how to swim.â€? Whether it is for fun, a chance to learn new skills or to go on to compete, one thing is for sure the kids love it. Dolphinâ€™s swimmer Fiona Cook currently practices two days per week and says she will definitely join again next year. â€œI love it! Its really fun, our coach is great!â€?

Calendar Girls a triumph for local theatre group By Dryden Observer Staff It was a week that marked a daring new high for community theatre group Theatre 17. The group celebrated a well-attended run of four performances of the feel-good comedy/drama Calendar Girls, featuring two distinct casts. Described by patrons as a ‘rollercoaster of emotions’, the three-hour spectacle chronicled the true story of a group of Yorkshire Women’s Institute members who produced a nude calendar as a fundraiser to support their local hospital’s cancer ward. Theatre 17’s production was accompanied by a calendar project of its own, featuring cast members in states of tastefully obscured nudity in characteristically Northwestern Ontario environments — from blizzards to autumn leaves and campfires. As the play itself would describe it, the fundraiser project for Dryden
Regional Health Centre’s ‘celebrates the corporeal beauty of the mature human form without indecency’. “We got the town talking,” said director Judith Hamilton in her post-show address to cast and crew. “And I think that’s an important thing to do. We made them think about the importance of continuing to support Cancer fundraising, especially in your own community.” Still on While the calendar has sale! Theatre 17’s thus far raised around fundraiser calendars can be $10,000, sales are somewhat found at a variety of local locations.

I’ve had four years with Theatre 17 but this was out of our comfort zone for sure.” Karen McDonald graced the cover of the show’s calendar. The show marked her first time in community theatre. “It’s been very special,” said McDonald. “I’ve made a lot of great friends and the community has been very supportive.” Katie Venne hopes the community won’t hold her character, a makeup artist of questionable moral character involved in a lurid affair with a main character’s husband, against her after the show’s over. “I’m not really a trollop,” she
says. “I’ve heard that ladies go up to ‘Ruth’ after the show to tell her they’re so glad she didn’t go back to Eddy. But no one tells me anything. I’m a little heartbroken.” Cast One included Ellen Bloomfield, Darlene Fuerst, Karen McDonald, Gail Arnold, Kate Cook, Theresa Lambert, Yvette Burns, Renee Fediuk, Irene Skene, Katie Venne, Peter Marshall, Murray Cook, Adam Riley, and Bruce Walchuk — and performed Feb. 19 and Feb. 21.

February 23 - March 1 ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, you want more than you can acquire this week and your desires may lead you astray. It is important to exercise self-restraint, even if you get a thrill from living on the edge.
LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, it may seem like you are being led astray by one thing after another, when all you want is to focus on one task at a time. Find a way to block out any and all distractions.
TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, make a concerted effort to improve your focus in the weeks ahead. There is much to lose if you cannot tackle the tasks at hand, particularly at the workplace.
SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, work on a creative project with a sweetheart or friend early in the week. Ideas will flow easily and your imaginations will soar together. It is a productive pairing.
GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, it's unlike you to slow down, so don't be surprised when friends start looking at you curiously after you take your foot off the gas. Your free spirited nature will soon return.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 This is not your week to mix love and money, Sagittarius. In fact, keep the two as separate as possible, and exercise caution before lending anyone money.
CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, find a routine that works for you and then stick with it. There is no need to reinvent the wheel, and when actions become automatic, you can focus on other things. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 A need for attention could get the better of you, Leo. A little humility goes a long way and can alter others' perceptions of you. You may end up being seen in a more positive light. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you can differentiate between right and wrong, but your judgement might be off this week. Rely on your intuition, but don't make any big decisions without first thinking carefully.
CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, you want to play outside of the rules this week. You normally like to follow a relatively traditional course, so this catches others off guard. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 You don't always have the patience to stick with the same routine, Aquarius. That means others cannot expect you to conform to their whims if they want you as a friend. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, you may need to sacrifice some security for a chance to have a memorable experience. Do something out of the ordinary.

What’s in it for you?
Thank you As I write this, I’m reminded of that old hymn that begins, “Count your many blessings, name them one by one,” and realize I just can’t count that high! But I am so grateful to, and for my wonderful family, extended family, so many good friends, near and far, for best wishes, cards, hugs, phone calls, flowers, remembrances, three cakes, and even several musical tributes! Also can’t forget the pub and igloo experiences! Thanks grand-kids! You’ve all made my 90th birthday a very happy and memorable time. My sincere thanks to all, and may you all be as blessed, as I have been! From the world’s Luckiest - Mom, Mom-in-law, Gram, Gram-in-law, Great-Gram, Aunt, Cousin and Friend!

ObiTuaries Elmera Edna Ewen (Wood) – 1930 - 2014
Daniel Harrison – 1928 - 2014
Health Sciences Centre. Edna was born in 1930 in Blue Township (Sleeman) Ontario to Joe and Katie (Marchuk) Wood. The eldest of 8 children, growing up on the family farm, she would often be caring for her younger siblings and cooking meals for family and farm hands during busy times. In 1947, Edna married Bill Ewen and they took over the family farm from her parents. The family farm was where they started their family and raised most of their 8 children, before moving to Dryden, Ontario in 1963. Edna and Bill were active members of the Royal Canadian Legion and were devoted volunteers at the Loyal Order of the Moose, where she obtained the title of Senior Regent. She and Bill were responsible for the building and running of the lounge at their local chapter. During the first few years of its operation, Edna volunteered her time as the only bartender and cook until it was successful enough to hire full-time staff. Edna enjoyed many different sports and games, excelling at every one. She played ladies softball for many years, enjoyed curling and was a champion five-pin bowler, winning many titles and representing Ontario at the World’s Championships in 1977. When first introduced to darts, Edna became a top player within her first year of picking up the game and went on to win many tournaments in Northwestern Ontario. Edna took pride in the food that she prepared. She always had a large, well-tended garden that was frequently raided by neighbourhood children and her grandchildren. Her canned vegetables, fruit and pickles were a staple on many family members’ and friends’ tables. She catered for her daughters’ weddings as well as New Year’s Eve parties for the Moose Hall. She was well known in the area for her food and willingly shared her recipes with anyone who asked. Her home was always open and often shared with many nieces and nephews over the years. She enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting and spent many

MTO makes changes to seniors’ licence renewal process By Dryden Observer Staff Starting April 21, 2014 the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) will be making the Driver ’s Licence renewal process shorter and less stressful for
seniors aged 80 and over. This new process will involve a vision test, driver record review, a shorter and improved inclass group education session along with two short in-class screening exercises and then only if necessary, a road test.
It is will great sadness that we announce the passing of our husband, father and grandfather Daniel Harrison at the age 85, who passed away at Princess Court Long Term Care on Monday, February
Swan Bertil Larson (Bert) – May 14, 1923 - February 12, 2014
In his 90th year, on Wednesday February 12, 2014, Bert passed away with family by his side. He will be remembered by the twinkle in his eye, his smile and generous giving spirit. He is survived by his children Inga (Doug), Jim (Lorraine), Marj (Bob), Anna (Richard), Mary (Leo); grandchildren Mark, Dan (Sheri), Jonathan, Jamie (Melissa), Angie (Steve), Tanya, Becky (Bill), Aaren (Byron), Mike (Melissa); great grandchildren, Madison, AJ, Collin, Brayden, Grace, Adam, Ryan and Andrea; his sister Ellen Christensen of California and brother-inlaw Wesley Robinson of Dryden plus numerous other relatives. He was predeceased by his son John, loving partner Ruby and sisters Evelyn Moody and Mary Jane Robinson. Born in Eton Rugby on the family farm May 14, 1923, Bert was the only son of Swan and Mary Larson. He and his sisters soon learned to help on the farm and he was cutting wood at a very early age. His first paying job of 15 cents a month was to haul water to the old Eton Rugby School when he attended each day. He received his education in Eton Rugby, and then went on to be a licensed mechanic and journeyman carpenter. Over the years he worked for Marrs’ Marine, Dryden Paper Company, Oxdrift Tractor Sales, had his own logging truck, and operated Larson’s Repair Service.
Many years were spent building houses for family and friends that included the plumbing, electrical so “Jack of all trades” was how he was known and he would leave home at anytime to help anyone in need. He enlisted in the army to serve his country before the age of 18, he ranked as Pte. S B Larson and assigned to the 28th Company of the Canadian Forestry Corps and spent time in Canada, the UK and Europe. He was a 58 year member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Oxdrift and District, Branch #41, and very proud to wear his war medals. In 2004, 2005 and 2006 he was excited to travel with the veteran tours in Europe to revisit Belgium, Holland, Italy and a cruise on the Danube River. In 1950 he married Ella Brown and they started their family on the homestead on Rugby Lake Road. They later moved to the family farm on Larson Road where he lived most of his life. The cabin at Thaddeus Lake was a great source of enjoyment for the family. He was reunited with Ruby and they enjoyed their trips to visit friends and built a house on the property he acquired in Wisconsin. Declining health forced him to move to Dryden in 2002 where he resided on Schmidt Crescent, 10 Victoria and then moved to Princess Court until his passing. The staff at Princess Court took good care of him and sure knew how to make him smile. His family was his pride and joy and some recall that if they wanted to see Dad they would often go to the garage because that is where he spent most of his time, repairing, building or inventing. His children all got a little to independent sometimes because he taught them to fix everything. All his children shared his work ethic to always do and be your
best....plus a little more. He spent numerous years hunting and fishing with many wonderful family and friends. He took pride in providing wild game for Eton Rugby residents during the hard years of the 30s, 40s and 50s. He took up woodworking and was so happy to make quilt racks, deacons’ benches and cedar chests for his children and grandchildren. Bert was very proud to be a member and support the Eton Rugby Community Hall activities. Bert played baseball and was a coach for the hard ball team; the Oxdrift Mets that Jim and John played on, and then coached the Oxdrift Fordettes that the girls played on. Bert was an avid bowler and went to the zone, provincial and national finals as part of the 4 man team. He did have the reputation of being a “sandbagger” but was thrilled when they won the national finals in Edmonton in 1997. He will also be remembered for his caring and generous ways. His life was far too full to share anything more than brief glimpses of the years gone by, but we will always remember the sparkle in those wonderful blue eyes. A Memorial Funeral Service to celebrate Bert’s life was held Sunday, February 16th at 1:00 p.m. in the Dryden Royal Canadian Legion with Pastor Velma Henderson officiating. Royal Canadian Legion Oxdrift and District Branch #41 conducted a Veteran’s Memorial Service. Interment will be in the Oxdrift Cemetery at a later date. If friends desire donations may be made to Eton Rugby Hall or charity of your choice through the Stevens Funeral Homes P.O. Box 412, Dryden ON P8N 2Z1. Condolences may be posted at w w w. s t e v e n s f u n e r a l homes.ca
The cost of renewal for seniors will remain the same at $32 and will take approximately 90 minutes every two years, less than half the time of the current program. There are practice samples of the new, noncomputerized, group education session in-
class screening components available on the MTO’s website for those wishing to get a head start, but seniors will no longer need to study for a knowledge test as of April 21st. Bill Mauro, MPP Thunder Bay-Atikokan says he is pleased with the positive changes the
government has made to the Driver ’s Licence renewal program for seniors. “This revised program aims to keep seniors driving for as long as they can safely do so through a collaborative effort between the ministry, seniors, their physicians and their families.”
Thank you The family of Harry Dzeoba wish to express their heartfelt thanks for the kind expressions of care given to him and ourselves by Dr. Cook and Palliative Care staff, Nathalie Legros and Barb Lindquist, Shoppers staff, George’s Taxi and Dad’s many community friends who gave him rides back home. Our thanks to friends and staff of Patricia Gardens. We especially thank Rev. Hewitt Holmes, the Legion Honour Guard, the UCW and Stephens Funeral Home staff for all of the details related to his Service.

ARNOLD – Judy - October 5, 1944 February 25, 2010. You are gone but not forgotten and as dawns another year. In my lonely hours of thinking thoughts of you are always near and days of sadness will come over me. Friends may think the wound is healed but they little know the sorrow that lies within the heart concealed. The moment that you died my heart was torn in two, one side filled with heartache the other died with you. I often lie awake at night when the world is fast asleep and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheeks. – Sadly missed but always loved, Ernie
