Museum board keeps up pressure Volunteer advisory board urges council to consider facility’s value to community during 2014 budget preparations By Chris Marchand As Dryden City Council enters its 2014 budget process with a quiver full of cost saving options from the recent Service Level Review, the Dryden and District Museum’s Advisory Board let Dryden City Council know in no uncertain terms their hopes for 2014, Monday. “Let’s keep our museum alive,” said The Museum board’s Patsy Norman in her delegation’s address to council which highlighted the current state of operations. In 2013, the museum’s budget was cut by about one-third as the facility scaled back to a single staff member, its curator. Over 1,400 visitors passed through its doors in the past year. “We have a great collection of artifacts, the venue to store those artifacts and the clientele base to appreciate them,” said Norman. “We must continue to preserve our history, for if it’s lost it cannot be retrieved.” Councillor Brian Collins praised

the board for their vigilance in recent months and suggested altering city policy to allow volunteers to operate the facility in the absence of the curator, which currently is not

was forfeited to the Crown in 2003 and has been a resident of the museum for many years. With recent high-level staffing changes, including the addition of new city manager André Larabie now on the scene, McGillivray says the group is looking to re-assert its presence at an important stage. “We’re also aware that it’s not just council that’s listening,” said McGillivray. “It’s the greater population as well. We did discuss whether this was a good time to do it because council has a lot on their plate already. We figured we’d jump in there. There are some new employees who may not be as familiar with the museum — our new city manager for example.” McGillivray says the most tangible way for members of the public to show their support for the continued operation of the Dryden and District Museum is to purchase memberships. “We want to remind council that we realize it comes down to the dollar,” said McGillivray. “That’s what they’re going to take into consideration. But especially with a museum there’s so much more to consider that can’t be seen as dollars and cents. We wanted to get that across.”

Dryden city council discussed taking some measure of political action in support of efforts to draw attention to a perceived

lower standard of winter road maintenance on Hwy. 502 they believe is limiting travel between Dryden and Fort Frances. In mid-December, regional bus charter company Iron Range Bus

Lines announced they would cease operating on Hwy. 502 due to poor or no maintenance and a lack of cellphone service. The move leaves school bus patrons,

Dryden City Councillors warmed to a proposal from Dryden Youth Soccer, Monday, asking the city to donate in-kind a portion of the labour and equipment costs involved in installing sewer and water services to a long proposed multi-purpose building at North Dryden’s Rotary Fields. Appearing on behalf of Dryden Youth Soccer, Gary Nickle explained to council that in his efforts to secure a grant from the province’s Trillium Foundation for the remainder of the outstanding funds to begin construction, he became aware that applications requesting funds below the sum of $100,000 could stand a significantly greater chance of success. Looking to shave approximately $14,000 from his Trillium application in short order, Nickle approached the city in the hope councillors would consider an inkind donation of a portion of the labour and equipment costs that make up the city’s $27,000 (total) estimate to install sewer and water services to the facility. “The Trillium Foundation will view any kind of in-kind gesture on a dollar-for-dollar equivalent,” said Nickle. “So I’m here to formally ask that question.” Nickle says Dryden Youth Soccer, which serves over 500 youth, is in need of proper washroom facilities, changerooms and shelter during bad weather. He adds the building could be a missing piece of the puzzle for summer tournaments that could be as beneficial to the local economy as the annual spate of winter hockey tournaments. “I could let this application stand and maybe I’d have a 10 per cent chance of getting the $113,000,” said Nickle. “If I could get it down to $99,000, maybe my chances go up to 60 per cent. I don’t know for sure what the likelihood is, I just have to ask the question.” Upon completion the facility would be turned over to the City of Dryden. The $313,000 project would be funded by $80,000 in fundraised dollars already secured by Youth Soccer, a $100,000 donation from Dryden Rotary, $20,000 held in trust by the City of Dryden on behalf of Hydro One and hopefully, says Nickle, the remainder through a successful Ontario Trillium application. Councillors, except Brian Collins who declared conflict of interest on the matter, offered supportive comments despite the difficulties the budget constraints faced by the city. Councillors pledged to support a resolution at next Monday’s regular meeting of council to make the requested in-kind contribution conditional upon Youth Soccer’s successful application with the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

This week the Northwestern Health Unit launched ChooseWise, a website program displaying local food safety inspection results. ChooseWise can be found on and allows the public to search for food premises inspection results by establishment name, type and community. Preventing food-borne illness is a mandate of the health unit, and programs like ChooseWise have been shown to reduce the risk of food-borne illness, improve food safety standards, and increase compliance with food safety legislation. Before the ChooseWise program, the public could get food safety inspection results by calling the health unit. The new program makes it easier for people to get the results that can help them make safe food choices. “With the online format of ChooseWise, the public can now check the inspection results of a local food premises at any time of any day.” says Stephanie Snow, Public Health Inspector. The Northwestern Health Unit works with local food premises year round to improve their compliance with food safety legislation. In addition to regular inspections, Public Health Inspectors encourage that all food handlers have safe food handling training, offered by the health unit through in-person workshops, online, or self-study methods. For the launch of ChooseWise, food premises operators were provided with information, resources, and voluntary signage for their establishment. For more information about ChooseWise or food safety, visit or contact your local Northwestern Health Unit office.

Carbon monoxide alarm saves Dryden family Submitted

Just after 6 a.m. January 8, a Dryden couple were awoke from their sleep by the sounding of the carbon monoxide alarms. The Dryden Fire Service responded and found dangerous reading levels of CO on monitoring devices in the residence, the family stayed warm in their vehicle while Fire Service and Union Gas technicians investigated the CO source and cause. Without the activation and early warning from the carbon monoxide alarms, this Dryden couple may have become seriously ill or tragically deceased, if overcome by high levels of CO for a long period of time overnight. The Dryden Fire Service recommends all residents check their smoke alarms and install working carbon monoxide alarms on every floor of your home and especially near sleeping rooms. Replacing all life saving devices every ten years at the least or by the manufacturer’s recommendations, and the batteries in battery powered units annually is good preventative maintenance program.

New waxing hut dedicated to memory of ski club pioneer By Chris Marchand

A new structure built to serve generations of Dryden’s Nordic skiers to come has been dedicated to the memory of one of the Dryden Ski Club’s most avid members, Dennis Bloomfield. The man behind the ‘Bloomer’s Bluff ’, a notorious climb/thrilling descent on the trail system — Dennis Bloomfield passed away in fall of 2012 after four decades of serving the club in a variety of aspects, from the executive, to trail development, to the ski patrol. The building will serve as a dedicated waxing hut for local Nordic skiers who hitherto have not had a space to delve into the waxing ritual. “I’ve wanted to have a waxing hut for years,” said builder and ski club volunteer Kurt Schmidt. “It first came into play when we started the (Dryden High School) ski team. We’d host events, or have a waxing clinic and people would be waxing on the deck or on tables and it just doesn’t work. It’s messy. Not only that, all

the rental equipment at the hill needs to be waxed. So there was a need.” Part science, part art form - wax types and techniques depend on temperature and snow conditions, factors best assessed very close to where one skis. Schmidt hosts waxing clinics to teach skiers how to get the most out of their skis. “I didn’t want just a shack,” he said. “I wanted something that looked a little nicer and fit in with the surroundings. I looked online and found a few different patterns, like this one that I manipulated a little bit. I liked the roofline and the veranda on the front. We tweaked it a bit.” It’s likely the best news all season for cross-country skiers who have endured a month-long cold snap punctuated by large dumps of snow and problems keeping grooming equipment in working order. Further challenges were overcome in the offseason as a major clean-up operation was staged to clear the Nordic trails of downed trees following a

damaging mid-July windstorm. Schmidt says the club is actively working to replace a bridge near the chalet with a structure robust enough to accommodate the club’s full-size snowcat groomer on the Nordic trails — a development that would be a game-changer for the caliber of events the club could host. Schmidt says the bridge would likely be replaced with a culvert system. “The permit (application) has been submitted, we have a couple options for funding and we’re starting to do some fundraising this season,” said Schmidt. “We’re planning to start talking to some local contractors about in-kind donation of services.” The Dryden Ski Club trails will play host to a NorWOSSA Nordic skiing event on Jan. 27. The Dryden Ski Club has also introduced night skiing on Friday nights this season. Check out their website for the latest trail reports at or log onto their Facebook page.

high school sports and junior ‘A’ hockey clubs taking the long way around — via Hwy. 71 near Kenora. Councillor Mary Trist broached the subject expressing her view that the city should mount an effort to reclassify the secondary highway to a designation that would demand a higher level of maintenance. “I understand that the discussion is around that road being deemed a secondary highway,” said Trist. “I’m not sure the provincial government knows about the amount of traffic that goes through there, but I’m of

the opinion that maybe that road should be reclassified.” Hwy. 502 is classified by the province as a lowvolume, Class 5 highway which allows the contractor to maintain a snow-packed surface for most of the winter — a fact that doesn’t satisfy those who travel the route daily. A 2010 document produced by Ontario Good Roads Association (OGRA) indicates a Class 5 designation on an Ontario highway is reserved for roads that bear a posted speed limit of 61-70 km/ph and travelled on by only 50-199 vehicles per day. Poised to attend 2014’s OGRA meeting in Toron-


to, Feb. 23-26, with an eye on securing funding to re-condition Duke St., Mayor Craig Nuttall expressed reservations on antagonizing the Ministry of Transportation over an issue they have recently responded to — citing the recent month long cold snap’s effect in limiting the effectiveness of road salt and confounding contractors’ efforts to clean the roads in a timely fashion. Councillor Brian

Collin suggested council craft a letter to the Minister of Transportation in conjunction with regional school boards and Iron Range Bus Lines to seek some resolution to the situation which has yet to improve. “The part that concerns me is that the other end (of Hwy. 502) is clear,” said Collins. “We have as much snow as they do. We need better maintenance at this end.”

n hindsight, sprayfoam was a very good idea. II shudder, or perhaps more accurately, shiver to think what may have been happening inside the formerly wood shaving and newspaper lined walls of my 100 year-old home had they not been gutted and refilled with better stuff this past summer. Now, tight as a drum, I’ve become the draft hunter, sensitive to the slightest change in air pressure and temperature gradient, my questing hand running over doorframes and window trim like an astronaut seeking to preserve precious atmosphere from the frigid black vacuum of space. It’s not a bad analogy. Much ado was made about daytime temperatures on Mars registering higher than our own. There is a wonderful kind of doomed solidarity in feeling like you live on the moon. I love the extreme cold. In recent weeks I was stunned speechless by the beauty of a sunset over Wabigoon Lake at -35C - the cold drawing the moisture from the slushy lake through the snow into a strange haze that softened colours into hues I’d never before seen in nature. The question was asked recently on a national radio call-in show, ‘Are we as a nation getting soft, when it comes to winter?’ As much as I’d like to consider myself as rugged as a polar explorer, I have trouble complaining about the lack of fortitude displayed by my fellow Canadians during this wicked cold snap without being one of the hundreds of thousands of people affected by power outages in Southern Ontario and New Brunswick throughout the holidays. If anyone gets to complain, it’s them. It’s weather such as this that reveals our vulnerabilities — the easily broken thread by which we cling to civilization and how easily that is broken. Somewhere in our ability to accept that high level of uncertainty and to take care of each other under such circumstances you will find one kind of answer to the question of ‘what does it mean to be Canadian?’ As for the highways, I can’t help but sympathize with the unpopular viewpoint that there is more at play in our highways situation than a lack of effort on the part of the roads maintenance contractor. A straight month of temperatures that failed to rise above -20C render many of the tools at their disposal, like road salt, ineffective. Combine a wait-and-see ethic towards deploying equipment in a timely, proactive manner with the unforgiving temperatures we’re experiencing and is it any wonder why we’re seeing a snow-packed Trans-Canada two weeks since the last snowfall? Most seasoned winter drivers know that driving on bad roads is not the problem, so much as it is driving in proximity to others on bad roads. The existential philospher Jean-Paul Sartre famously said, “Hell, is other people.” Truer words have not been spoken for those who find themselves wedged into a column of tight slow moving traffic on a road covered in snow and black ice. If anything, this is the mark of our times. Whereas we once could rely upon a greater level of safety from our public institutions, we need to adapt to a higher level of self-reliance and awareness of the limitations of ‘public’ services. - Chris Marchand

Settlers or Frontiersmen very community or E workplace has a ‘culture’, a unique way of living and working together, of looking at the world, of behaving. The culture is built rather quickly when the place is first coming together, based on the culture people bring with them, and their shared experiences. However, once gelled, the culture changes very slowly, individuals who move in automatically adopt the culture already there. It takes massive immigration of folks of a different background, or a major crisis to seriously change the culture of the place. A good example as to how a culture develops is in the monkey story being circulated in a political context. In case you haven’t heard it, I paraphrase it as follows. The claim is that an experiment was conducted in which a cage was filled with, say, 10 monkeys. A stepladder is in the middle of the cage, and set up so that if anyone steps on the stepladder, all the mon-

keys in the cage will get a blast of cold water. Then a bunch of bananas is suspended over the stepladder. It only takes a few blasts of cold water until the monkeys gang up and drag down and beat up any monkey who approaches the stepladder. Then the monkeys are replaced, one at a time. Each new monkey sees the bananas, and tries to climb the ladder and is beaten up. The interesting point is that after all the original monkeys are gone, so no monkey in the cage has ever been blasted with cold water, the practice of beating up any monkey who attempts to climb the stepladder still goes on. It has become part of the local culture. The folks who spread

out across the land to form Canada, 120 years ago more or less, were either settlers, or frontiersmen, according to the following definitions. Settlers are people who came to a location to make a home and a community, as a place to ‘settle down’ and raise a family, and expect to die there. Frontiersmen are people who moved to take advantage of opportunities, a job or resources to be exploited, and who would move on once the job or opportunity disappeared, and expect to eventually move ‘back home’. Settlers would build their farms or businesses, houses, communities, and hunker down and weather it out when times got tough. Most importantly, settlers invest in their community. Frontiersmen generally do not, and in time of hardship just move on to the next opportunity. Dryden district (rural handily outnumbered urban in the early years) was originally founded by settlers, folks who came

here to have their own land, to be free of the elites, and our entrepreneurial culture is the result. The other centers in our world (Ontario west of Thunder Bay) were all founded by frontiersmen, railroaders, fur traders, miners, trappers, prospectors. That accounts for what several consultants over the years have found quite remarkable, our ‘sense of place’ — the importance we place on this our home, our love of our piece of the world and our way of life — a much stronger part of our local culture than is found in other places the consultants had studied. Tommy Jones called it our ‘Sense of Community’. And that is why our community is not experiencing the wild population swings we have seen in Frontiersmen-populated, resource-based communities as their industry waxes and wanes. This is our home, we are here to stay. More to come on this theme.

How cold was it? Cold as a witch's _ _ _ _ , cold enough to freeze the _ _ _ _ _ off a brass monkey, and my personal favourite: It was so cold, I saw a lawyer with his hands in his own pockets. People have colourful ways of describing how cold it was. In Australia the cowboys are called drovers and the ranches are cattle stations. The drovers have crews of small dogs called heelers, called that because they nip the heels of the cattle to herd them. If the drovers are out on the land on a cold night they call a dog over to lay on their sleeping bag. On a colder night the cowboys have two dogs on and that band named themselves after a really cold night- a " three dog night ". When it's really cold here trees start to explode. They usually don't blow apart, they split from root to top,

but it sounds like an explosion when the water freezing inside the tree tears it apart. The phenomenon is catastrophic. You see trees in the bush that are partly split with charring on them from a lightning strike. Those trees sometimes heal and live a long time. A tree that splits from the cold is much more damaged and doesn't survive long. I don't know if all species of trees can split from intense cold but aspen, black poplar and birch all can hardwoods that have a lot of moisture in them. The tree most likely to split here is Balsam Poplar ( black poplar ) that has the highest water content of

all the trees here. The trees that do split can crack at any time of the day or night, but you're more likely to hear a black poplar in the swamp explode about 2 hours after daylight on a sunny frigid morning. The sun starts to warm one side of the tree a little bit causing immense strain inside the tree. The loud flat crack of a tree exploding sounds just like a high powered rifle. Not feeling the global warming for a year and a half now, last year was the coldest in at least 5 years in chiphandling and this year is shaping up to be even colder. One of my daughters said: "They changed global warming to climate change five years ago." You can hear Three Dog Night on the radio at lunchtime: "Shambala", "One" (One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do...) and "Joy To The World" (Jeremiah was a bullfrog...). They had a lot of hits in the late 60s and early 70s.

Three classic ice fishing lures Winter 2013/2014

icking favourite lures is like choosing between your kids. It really can’t be P done. On some days, you might like one better than the other. Some will fall out of grace, but they almost always get back in. Through the ups and downs, you always love them all. So when my boxes of ice fishing lures, collected over nearly four decades of winter fishing, get emptied out, it is like a big family. There are all shapes and sizes, for everything from perch to lake trout. Yet a few of these lures have really stood the test of time. Here are three of my favourite classics. Swedish Pimple I’m not exactly sure why the Swedish Pimple is named what it is, but it sure is a tough one to forget. The long slender spoon is a winter classic, and is used throughout North America, for every type of fish under the ice. The traditional Swedish Pimple is silver side with a red plastic flicker at the treble hook. It is a narrow, three sided, spoons and falls in a tight but erratic way when jigged. The first angler I ever saw fish with a Swedish Pimple was my late Grandfather Ora Ellis. Gramps was from southern Ontario, but loved to ice fish lake trout more than just about anything in life, except, maybe, deer hunting. Ora fished with only a foot long stick that he wrapped his 20 pound test line around. On the end of the line he had a snap and a one ounce silver Swedish Pimple. He never used bait or a second line. The spoon would be slowly worked down, counting each foot, until it was on bottom. Then the stick fisherman would do his work. It got to be a joke with my Dad and I that gramps would out-fish both of us combined. Lake trout would commit suicide on his Swedish Pimple. A killer lure for sure. Airplane Jig Not sure when my eyes first landed on an Airplane jig, but it was many years ago. Likely in the old Canadian Tire store in Port Arthur in the 1970s. As a kid, I’d stare for hours at the lures on the wall there, but I digress. The Airplane jig is aptly named. It looks more or less like a tiny plane with two rounded wings. The “wings” have a treble on either side and there is a large single hook at the back of the jig. There is generally white bucktail hair at the back. This



Shown from top to bottom: Jigging Rapala, Airplane Jig and Swedish Pimple G. Ellis photo design makes the Airplane jig among the oddest looking lures ever invented. However, it is also completely deadly on lake trout, pike and even walleye. About a decade ago or so, a large group of well known American anglers came up to Thunder Bay for a few days of winter fishing. John Peterson, the president of Northland Tackle, was among them. Peterson used an Airplane jig almost exclusively on that trip, and proved to be a maestro with it. He waved his jigging up and down, right then left, like he was consulting an unseen orchestra beneath the ice. This apparently made the lakers hear whale music, as he kicked our butts hard. No winter lake trout box is complete without a white Airplane jig or two. Jigging Rapala Here is another crazy looking, but classic, ice fishing lure. The Jigging Rapala has been around for decades, and has literally caught every fish in the swim. If you’ve never seen one, imagine a minnow with a hook sticking out of both the front and back with, and a treble dangling from the middle. This lure is tied on in the centre of the bait and hangs like a Christmas tree ornament. Despite the odd look of the Jigging Rapala, it is an incredible fish catcher. Just about every species, from crappie to northern pike, will slam a Jigging Rapala. It really has one of the more unusual actions you’ll ever see. It can also be used with the addition of a minnow head on the centre treble and it doesn’t impact the action. These lures come in every conceivable colour and size, so be prepared to make choices. But this is a good one. Those are three classics, but there are many more yet. Perhaps down the line I’ll examine a couple other ice fishing lures that are worth taking along for the ride.

Goldcorp intends to purchase Osisko Mining Submitted Canadian gold miner Goldcorp Inc. expects its annual gold production to expand by up to 18 per cent this year despite plans to curtail costs and capital spending in the next two years, the company revealed last week. Goldcorp announced this morning that it plans to buy Osisko Mining Corp. in a cash and stock deal valued at $2.6 billion. Osisko Mining Ltd is the proponent behind the Hammond Reef project located 23 kilometres northeast of Atikokan. The Vancouver-based company, which is one of the world's largest gold miners, plans to produce between three million and 3.15 million ounces of gold this year, achieving growth of between 13 per cent and 18 per cent. The increase will come

from higher grades at its flagship Peñasquito operations in Mexico, the ramp-up of Pueblo Viejo in the Dominican Republic and the expected start of gold production at Cerro Negro in Argentina and Éléonore in Quebec. The gold miner projects that silver production will grow at a rapid rate this year as well, reaching between 34 million and 36 million ounces, of which about 22 million to 25 million ounces will be extracted at Peñasquito. Goldcorp forecasts annual capital expenditure of $2.3 billion to $2.5 billion this year, of which some 60 per cent will be earmarked for projects and 40 per cent for operations. Cash costs are forecast to range between $950 and $1,000 per ounce in 2014, against an average of $1,065 per ounce in 2013.

$72,500 in fines for illegal activities at local lodge Submitted by the Ministry of Natural Resources Eleven people have plead guilty to a total of 68 charges and have been fined $72,500 for offences that took place at a hunting and fishing lodge near Dryden. Steve Herbeck, former owner and operator of 1216818 Ontario Inc., carrying on business as Andy Myers Lodge, on Eagle Lake, west of Dryden, was fined a total of $7,500 and his business was fined a total of $27,000 for 22 offences. He is not allowed to hunt in Ontario for ten years. Danny Herbeck and Chris Federman, both lodge employees, were fined $7,000 each for their offences and cannot hunt for the next four and eight years respectively. At the time of the offences, all three men lived in Mineral Point, Wisconsin. Andy Bouchard of Waldhof, Ontario, pleaded guilty to three hunting offences and was fined $4,000. He is not allowed to hunt in Ontario for one year. Scott Munford of Vermilion Bay, Ontario, pleaded guilty to six charges under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act and was fined $7,000. He is not

allowed to hunt in Ontario for two years. Calum Ritchie of Waldhof, Ontario, pleaded guilty to two charges and was fined $2,000. He is not allowed to hunt in Ontario for one year. Tammy Pelletier of Waldhof, Ontario, pleaded guilty to two charges and was fined $2,500. She is not allowed to hunt in Ontario for one year. Bouchard, Munford, Ritchie and Pelletier were all lodge employees at the time of the offences. George Lindsay of Wedderburn Ranfurly, New Zealand pleaded guilty to three hunting offences and was fined $3,000. He is not allowed to hunt in Ontario for one year. Travis Runde of Mineral Point, Wisconsin, pleaded guilty and was fined $1,000 for two firearm offences. He cannot hunt in Ontario for one year. Don Rabideau Jr. of Morrisonville, New York, pleaded guilty to four hunting offences and was fined $3,000. He is not allowed to hunt in Ontario for one year. Lindsay, Runde, and Rabideau Jr. were all lodge guests. Ron Jaeger of Eagle

River, Ontario, pleaded guilty to one offence and was fined $500. The 11 people listed above pleaded guilty to a total of 68 charges under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, Ontario Fishery Regulations and Migratory Birds Convention Act. Their offences included: - unlawfully hunting wolf -unlawfully using a hunting licence belonging to another person - making a false statement in a document -making a false statement to a conservation officer -having a loaded firearm in a vehicle -possessing uncased firearms at night -discharging a firearm from a roadway -unlawfully selling game wildlife -unlawfully selling migratory birds -fishing with more than one fishing line -failing to comply with the requirements for an Ontario Hunting and Fishing Licence Issuer, and -possessing an overlimit of Canada geese. The court heard that Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources conservation officers conducted a two-year covert investigation in cooper-

ation with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the departments of Natural Resources for Wisconsin, Michigan, New York and Minnesota, and the New Zealand Commission of Wildlife. Conservation officers discovered that Steve Herbeck and his staff encouraged clients to hunt wolves without a licence. Staff then used their own resident licences to validate the wolf or arranged for guests to buy licences afterward. Steve Herbeck allowed guests to fish without a licence and later sold them backdated fishing licences. As part of their package, guests were fed grouse and mallard duck and advised they were fed American elk, all of which the lodge was not allowed to sell. Steve Herbeck also took guests muskellunge fishing and used more than the allowable amount of fishing rods. Justices of the Peace Daisy Hoppe and Edith Baas heard the cases between January 15 and December 17, 2013, in the Ontario Court of Justice, Dryden.

Stay home if you’re sick, say doctors CNW - With the flu season in full swing, Ontario's doctors are encouraging people who are sick to stay home. "I can't stress it enough going to work while sick is bad for you and potentially worse for your colleagues. Staying home to rest will help you to manage your illness and prevent others from getting infected," said Dr. Scott Wooder, President of the Ontario Medical Association. "Think about those around you, and please don't take the flu to work." The flu is highly contagious. Most cold and flu viruses are spread because people touch surfaces and then touch their faces, other objects and other people. Employers should encourage workers to stay home when sick - not require sick notes, which has a discouraging effect and forcing patients into the doctor's office when they are

sick only encourages the spread of germs to those in the waiting room, who in some cases are often more vulnerable. People such as children, seniors and those living with chronic diseases are more susceptible to the flu and are a greater risk from its complications. Following a few basic guidelines such as coughing and sneezing into an elbow, using hand sanitizer, and washing hands frequently will help prevent the flu. These are important tips, but getting the flu shot is still the best defence against the flu. If you haven't received the flu shot yet this year, it's not too late to make an appointment with your doctor. It's important to protect yourself and those around by taking the necessary steps to prevent the spread of the flu. Remember, if you're sick, please stay home!

Ice Dogs add more offence, goaltending at trade deadline By Dryden Observer Staff

Some last minute tweaking continued with the Dryden Ice Dogs lineup last week as the Superior International Junior Hockey League’s trade deadline passed. The Ice Dogs orchestrated a goaltending shake-up adding former Espanola Riverman Joakim Juntras to the mix in the place of Robert Kopytek-MacKenzie. The team also picked up Brett (1993) and Alex (1995) Hester of Wakaganish, Quebec. The elder Hester has 100 games of experience in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Both players were acquired from La Tuque Wolves, an ‘AAA’ franchise. Looking to the west, defenceman Quentin McShane (1994) comes to the Ice Dogs from the Chilliwack Chiefs of the BCHL. Another 1994-born player, forward Nolan Kinney will add a noticeable

physical presence to the club at 6’3” and 200 lbs. Departing players include David Lamanna — released to Schomberg Juveniles; Mikko KeskiPukkila, traded to the Nanaimo Buccaneers; and releases Braeden Foote and Patrick King. Folowing a 6-3 home ice win over the English River Miners, Jan. 8 the Dryden Ice Dogs travelled to Thunder Bay to re-engage the Thunder Bay North Stars. The North Stars claimed both wins 3-1 on Friday and 4-3 in overtime on Saturday. The club faces a doubleheader on the road in Ear Falls Friday and Saturday versus the English River Miners.

Peters trio thaws frozen town with hot funk Soulful trio balances evening set with clever covers and impressive originals By Chris Marchand s it any coincidence I that the Jesse Peters Trio’s arrival in Dryden was accompanied by a 20degree rise in ambient temperature. Whether the soulful Edmonton trio had anything to do with it or not, their evening’s songlist took the Dryden Entertainment Series out of the deep freeze for 2014 and into the slow cooker with an evening of skilled interpretations of well-loved classic tunes and some impressive originals. Front man Jesse Peters, bassist Travis Switzer and drummer Thom Bennett warmed up in the afternoon with a set tailored to DHS and Open Roads Fine Arts Music students - tak-

ing time to discuss the history of some of the rich musical concepts that influence their original songwriting in the jazz, soul and funk vein. The evening show was a carefully crafted balance that introduced plenty of impressive Sinatrainspired original material while rewarding the crowd with some jazz-infused covers of classic songs like James Taylor’s ‘Fire and Rain’, Paul Simon’s ‘Slip Slidin’ Away’, Ben E. King’s ‘Stand By Me’ and a glorious solo-piano encore of Ray Charles’ ‘Georgia On My Mind’ to name a few. The three-piece format was a tightly-tuned machine, driven by Bennett on the drums — his eyes focused on some point

in the distance as he locked into an altered state, possessed by time. His dark, dry cymbals looked to be of some rare vintage and seemed to have a story of their own to tell. Switzer too was a sensitive, dynamic player on his six-string bass and kept things visually interesting as he was the only one with the freedom to move around the stage. Peters’ gifted vocals and virtuosity on the piano was the real draw of the evening, a point proved song after song in a set that built to a rewarding and soulful apex at night’s end. His songs ‘Ace Up My Sleeve’ and ‘Love is Real’ and jazzy ode to Internet trolls ‘Dear Anonymous’ were standout selections. The Dryden Entertainment Series continues on Feb. 4 presenting accomplished Canadian roots music band Blackie and the Rodeo Kings - comprised of Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and Tom Wilson.

Leanne Bullock says the evening is a chance to shine a light on some strong artistic work being done by regional artists who happen to be of Aboriginal descent. “The goal is really just to give the community a great night of entertainment,” said Bullock. “It’s more of a coming together of people with everybody enjoying award-winning music, film

and photography. In this case in particular, these are all Aboriginal success stories. We don’t want to target just Aboriginal people to come to the concert. We want everybody to come out and enjoy it together.” No stranger to the stage in Dryden, Thunder Bay’s Shy-Anne Hovorka has previously performed in Dryden in open mics in the early days to appearances

Please consider the following Associations: Alzheimer Society of Kenora/Rainy River Districts Box 837 Kenora, ON P9N 4B5 1-800-682-0245

He soon was hired by Saville Construction and there began his career as a carpenter, moving on to become a young Carpenter Foreman on various projects including the Atomic Energy Building in Petawawa, Ontario in 1963; the Lakefront Holiday Inn in Kenora in 1964; the #3 Recovery Building at Dryden Paper Company in 1964; Griffin Mine in 1966; Canada Safeway and the Trans Canada Pipeline in Dryden in 1970 and the New Dryden Mill Reed Paper from 1979 to 1982 to mention just a few. Al fell in love with Loretta Wice and they

Lynelle Joy Wisneski (nee Slobodian). In the early hours of January 5, 2014, our beautiful Lynelle slipped away peacefully with her loving husband Joel by her side. Her radiant spirit lives on in her beloved daughters Caroline, Jaden, and Katrina. Born July 4, 1967, Lynelle was raised in St. James. She was a quiet leader developing many

friendships throughout her years of schooling. After high school, her sense of adventure took her to France with her best friend Joanne Clark, where they worked in the Au Pair program. She returned to Winnipeg, graduating with distinction in Economics from the U of M, 1989. There she met Joel, the love of her life and they married in 1991. Lynelle's passion for learning inspired her to become a certified financial planner, and later a talented day trader and investor. A number of organizations benefited from her strong business sense and analytical skills including V&F Transformer in Chicago, and most recently Veritus Disability and Career Management in Winnipeg. She also supported Joel in

his career endeavours and working alongside him was a great source of satisfaction to her. Their first child, Caroline (1996), was born in Chicago where they lived for seven exciting years building a home and forming a community of dear friends. They returned to Winnipeg in 1997. The births of Jaden (2001) and Katrina (2002) completed their family. She was an imaginative, patient, and loving mother whose flair for the dramatic filled family and friends' lives with joy and laughter. Occasions became magical experiences with her incredible wit, enthusiasm, and attention to detail. She encouraged her daughters to participate in many activities, and attended their events right through December 2013. She was so very proud of

their accomplishments. Her interest in following sports began early in life, with her favourite teams defining the seasons. She, along with her father and sister Joanna, became trivia buffs extraordinaire and rarely did a stat escape them. She was a true renaissance woman who could discuss any topic with great enthusiasm. She enjoyed a mutual love of the arts with her mother and sister Kathleen. Her consuming love, understanding and passion for her many friends was peppered with her great sense of humour. They returned that love a thousand fold. Lynelle was predeceased by her father Joseph Slobodian and is survived by her mother Ingrid Slobodian; sister Kathleen Clarke (Paul), sister Joanna Grant (Kevin); parents-in-law,

Marvin and Carol Wisneski; Joel's brothers Jim, Robert (Chantal), and Chad (Kimberly); beloved nieces and nephews, Charles, Daniel, Allison, Gavan, Lianna, Michael, Kayla, and soon-to-arrive baby Grant, as well as many dear aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Lynelle's fierce determination carried her through her illness. Many family and friends walked that journey with her. We are forever grateful for this love and support. In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of your choice. A celebration of Lynelle's life was held Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. at the Neil Bardal Centre, 3030 Notre Dame Avenue (across from Brookside Cemetery).
