By Chris Marchand Pot-hole weary Duke St. drivers take heart, big changes are on the way. City of Dryden Public Works Manager Blake Poole presented his recommendation to award a contract for engineering services for major upgrades to a portion of the local thoroughfare, May 12. As per Poole’s recommendation, council selected Thunder Bay’s JML Engineering — with whom they have previously worked alongside on the King St. underpass rehabilitation as well as biennial bridge inspections. Poole also offered some details on the scope of project which aims to address the street’s ongoing water main issues which have resulted in six boil water advisories and poor surface conditions. “Duke Street has been very susceptible to water main breaks over the last few years — we’ve had a large number of them,” said Poole. “The water mains are actually quite a small size and they run down each side of the

replacement of nearly 7,000 square metres of asphalt road surface along Duke St. from Colonization Ave. to Casimir. Storm sewer catch basins and sanitary sewer manhole repairs will improve drainage and prevent further roadway deterioration. Curb ramps will be reconstructed to new accessibility standards and traffic lines will be reviewed and improved if warranted. The project will receive 90 percent of its $1,526,400 price tag from the Small, Rural and Northern Municipal Infrastructure Fund. An additional application for the project’s remaining 10 per cent ($152,640) is pending with Fednor. Poole says scheduling weighted significantly on their list of criteria when choosing an engineering firm. “As long as they could get to that road work as soon as possible, we could get the majority of the work done this summer,” said Poole.

After seven months working with a transition team to craft the city of Dryden’s most difficult budget to date, André Larabie didn’t buy a new pair of shoes as tradition might dictate on the occasion of presenting a draft to Dryden City Council. “I got a haircut instead, it’s cheaper,” quipped the CAO at the May 12 regular meeting. Overcoming a $4 million deficit, the budget follows through with already significant restructuring, including the loss of 20 positions between the city and the Dryden Police Service in the past year as well as service level reductions based on the recommendation of consultant group KPMG. Larabie says it’s part of a two-year strategy to ease the City of Dryden out from under a crushing debt-load costing on the order of $3.8 million to service annually. He and newly hired deputy treasurer Alvin Allim have spent recent weeks negotiating a 12 year debenture of $1.7 million in debt from 2013 projects. The looming provincial election has thrown other prospects to free up cash flow — such as a two-year ‘interest only’ payment schedule on a Ministry of Infrastructure loan for DMTS — into limbo until the city can resume negotiations with the provincial government. The 2014 budget draft presents councillors with three scenarios: a four per cent, a 2.9 per cent, or a 1.5 per cent tax increase – all of which would balance the budget. A zero per cent tax increase, the often-stated wish of council, would leave the city $125,000 short of a balanced budget. Councillor Sid Wintle expressed his concerns on the prospect of any tax

Members of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Child Sexual Exploitation Unit have charged two Dryden men following two separate four week on-line child

pornography investigations. On May 8, 2014 police from the OPP Child Sexual Exploitation Unit, the OPP Technical Crime Unit, Dryden OPP and the Dryden Police Service executed two search warrants at two separate

Dryden residences. As a result of the searches, police seized two computers, two cellular telephones and other items pertinent to the investigations. A 50 year-old male Dryden resident is charged with two counts

of Possession of Child Pornography. A 31 year-old male Dryden resident is charged with one count of Making Child Pornography Available, two counts of possession of child pornography and one count of accessing

child pornography. Both of the accused were released from a bail hearing and are to appear on June 16, 2014 at the Ontario Court of Justice in Dryden Ontario. The investigation is continuing.

First Nations groups mull federal education bill after AFN’s Atleo resigns By Samantha Hawkins

Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) Chiefs and educators met in Thunder Bay last week to discuss the implications of Bill C-33, the First Nations Control of First Nations Education Act (FNCFNEA), following the resignation of Assembly of First Nations (AFN) National Chief Shawn Atleo. Atleo, who had been a key supporter of the FNCFNEA (Bill C-33), told reporters on May 2 that he is very proud of the work accomplished, but that this work must been seen as a challenge and a call to action for the entire country. “I have fought for this work and to achieve this mandate. This work is

too important and I am not prepared to be an obstacle to it or a lightning rod distracting from the kids and their potential. I am therefore, today resigning as National Chief.” The Federal Government has put the hotly debated Bill C-33 on hold until the AFN clarifies its position following Atleo’s resignation, but maintains that the collaborative process in development of regulations does not end with the introduction of Bill C-33 and that the overriding goal of the legislation is better outcomes for First Nation Students. Ontario Regional Chief Stan Beardy welcomed Chiefs and delegates from across Ontario to Thunder Bay for the opportunity to hear the most up-to-date information on the contents and implications of the proposed FNCFNEA and said the platform also acted as opportunity for educators and leaders to debate the Bill C-33 and provide feedback. “Education is the key to our future survival and it’s paramount that our communities are involved at the very start of any decision that involves our children. We have been adamant that the path forward is not delegated federal legislation but implementation of First Nations inherent jurisdiction over First Nations education through negotiation of nation-to-nation jurisdictional agreements.” Deputy Grand Chief Goyce Kakegamic, who holds the education portfolio, told reporters in a May 7 press release that the time has come and gone when they will stand by as other Nations determine what is in their best interests. “We are dealing with the future of education for our Nation and it has to be done right. We call on the Federal Government to move forward addressing the needs of our people according to our Treaty rights, and honouring our Nation-toNation relationship with the Crown as represented by the Government of Canada. Education is a sacred responsibility that our Chiefs have accepted, and expect the decisions we make to have a positive effect on our children’s future.” Despite the controversy, Atleo insists that he has carried out his actions based on principle and integrity and believes this work must happen. “It can and should happen in parallel to other efforts addressing fundamental questions of ‘how’ we do this work. Now the work started so many years ago must continue. It must continue in every community and it must continue within Parliament. I challenge every party and every First Nation to carry forward this work. Failure is simply not an option. Fighting for the status quo is simply not acceptable.” During the summit meeting that took place in Thunder Bay May 8 and 9, delegates developed an alternative proposal for First Nations Education, which included a rejection of Bill C-33 and the negotiation of a Political Accord on First Nations Education.

1.5 per cent tax increase would balance city budget Continued from Page 1 increase, particularly in light of rising residential property assessments while commercial property assessments fall. “My problem is that we’ve already hit the taxpayers over the past three years for 37 per cent,” said Wintle. “We hit the taxpayers this month for another 20 per cent on their water usage rates. I do hope you’re considering that in these numbers you given us here tonight that there’s already a tax increase for residential rates (via assessments).” Wintle suggested drawing the shortfall from reserves and maintaining a zero per cent tax increase. Larabie isn’t too keen on the idea saying that drawing too heavily from the city’s reserves runs the risk

of eroding confidence among the city’s creditors who are key players in the financial recovery plan. “We have $26 million of debt,” he said. “If we deplete our reserves then our bankers won’t trust us. I know from experience that if we were depleting (reserves) any more than we have already than we have, then they would not be coming to talk with us about how they can help us in getting through the next couple years.” Larabie says he plans to walk the public through the budget at an upcoming meeting to be staged on May 27, or 28 — the details will be released once confirmed. “I’ll be going through from A to Z about how we came to balance this budget, which services have been reduced.”

Every year, residents burning grass or debris ignite wildfires. In the spring, cured grass dries quickly, ignites easily and can spread out of control quickly. These fires cause property damage and cost money to extinguish. If you light it, you are responsible. Instead of burning, you can: • Mow and compost grass • Chip and compost brush or use it as mulch

THE DrYDEN oBSErVEr

Shooting for a record ice-out date? he legacy of the record-breaking winter of 20132014 lingers on deep into the spring adding a twist to a traditional local pastime — guessing when the ice will leave Wabigoon and Eagle Lakes. Ice-out betting pools among friends, family and workplaces have long been a traditional sign of spring marking the transition between winter and summer recreation in the Northwest. — a process that culminates in the return to the icy Wabigoon waters on the May Long weekend in search of opening day walleye. Since ice-out records were first recorded in 1937, the latest ice-out date for Wabigoon Lake was May 24 in 1950. Local resident and retired MNR staffer Garth Wintle hosts the records on a personal website. Keeping tabs on ice-out data since the mid 1980s, he thinks there’s a good chance anglers could be facing an icebound Wabigoon Lake for the walleye opener. “Taking a look right now, the West Arm isn’t even out,” said Wintle on Monday afternoon. “The big lake usually goes a week after the West Arm.” The data shows a median ice-out date of May 9, which has crept up to a median of May 7 since 1980. Wintle says recent years have been marked by a wide variability — from record early ice outs in 2010 (April 10) and 2012 (April 11) to big swings in the opposite direction in 2013 (May 14) and a potential record this spring. If a miracle does happen and you find yourself in a boat this long weekend, local pro angler John Butts says the fish are going to be a little behind in their behaviour for this atypical opener. “The biggest thing this weekend will be to find the spawning areas and the warmest waters, if you find current, that’s probably the best,” said Butts. “The fish are probably still into the spawn, so slow it down, real slow and be patient.” -Chris Marchand

Letters to the editor

Landfill fees for yard waste sure to cultivate ‘Wilderness City’ To the editor: Well, public works has done it again. We will now have to pay to take our grass clippings and brush to the Barclay landfill. This should surely lead to less enthusiasm by

some Drydenites to rake and remove unsightly brush from yards. Brush piles will now be the norm in back yards, along with campfires for roasting wieners. Fire hazards from dry piles and an influx of

rodents along with the deer population will surly give Dryden the “City in the Wilderness” feeling. Behind closed doors, passed councils have squandered taxes away as if they were playing

roulette at the casinos. We all realize that Dryden is hurting for money, but is this really a good way to save a few dollars? Bryon Ivanowich Dryden

Running for council, part two ore thoughts on whether you M should run for Council. Serving on council involves a lot of reading and learning, in fact you could make a full time job of it, but the time you put in is at your discretion. You should not feel you cannot serve because you have a full-time, demanding job – your input can still be valuable. Do not be put off by thinking you are too young or inexperienced or lack municipal knowledge. It is the staff’s job to keep you in line with the great mass of regulations and laws that govern the municipality. Your personal skills, knowledge, contacts, and point of view all have value, and the electorate will decide. Do not be put off by the discord and stress evident in our present council. That is not normal, indeed, it is rare, and stems from some personal issues and agendas. An underlying cause is a structural defect in the city’s procedures - there is a reason we have had four city managers, four city engineers, five treasurers, three city clerks, one of which is off on long-term stress leave, about five recreation managers, and so on, since year 2000. Obviously there will be disagreements on every Council, if all seven agreed on every issue, six are not needed. These disagreements should be civilized debate, and once you have been heard but still lose the vote, you must accept it gracefully, after all, maybe those guys are right and you are wrong. If all is done with good will there does not need to be stress. Do not be put off by the ‘doom and gloom, we are bankrupt’ crowd. There are serious financial issues, however, most municipalities and all northern municipalities are in simi-

lar difficulties in this dysfunctional province; there are reasons the mayors of both Fort Frances and Kenora have gone on record as favouring an investigation into moving from Ontario to Manitoba. You don’t believe our finances are unexceptional? Here are some facts to ponder. First, Annual Budgets — municipalities in Ontario are required by provincial law to produce a balanced budget every year, and live within it. We have done that for all the years I have been involved. In fact, a detailed budget document (quite a large book) which reviewed last year’s performance and this year’s plan was presented to the public every year that I can remember. The town cannot overspend its’ income, there is scrutiny by the province and the public. Second, Debt – municipalities’ long term debt, used to finance major projects, is regulated by the province. There is an upper limit set by the province, and Dryden is well below that limit. To put our debt in perspective, we could compare with Kenora. Dryden has very good infrastructure, with a very up-to-date water treatment plant; a brand new $30 million wastewater plant and a new $8 million south Dryden sanitary

pumping station. We meet all environmental requirements and have no large needs on the horizon, and we have $30 million in debt. Kenora has aging and obsolete treatment plants; major bridge repair needs; over 30 sewage pumping stations which overflow every rainfall so that the beaches have to be closed, totalling perhaps $100 million in immediate infrastructure needs, but no debt. Which is worse off? So don’t be put off by present politics, Dryden has a great future, and there is lots to do even in these difficult times. As one of my mentors used to say, we use the time between waves to get our ducks lined up to catch the next wave. There is much to do in the way of developing priorities and policies which we can afford; in strategic planning, and in selling our community to investors and the world. You will find lots to get your teeth into. Have fun. If you think you might want to run for Mayor, but have no Council experience, do not be put off, Council experience would be of benefit, but it is not essential. The Mayor’s job is to provide leadership and vision; to represent the city on all occasions from somebody’s 90th birthday to a national event like the Olympic Torch, and above all to be our number one salesman. Sell our community to the investment community, the district, the province, the nation. If you are the kind of person who enjoys such work, and have leadership experience and skills, then by all means you should run. It can easily be a full-time occupation, but with good will and appropriate delegation to Councillors, it can be done very well even by an employed person. Good Luck.

Swallow’s banquet n Monday morning May 5 our vehicles were covered with a O soft thick frost. The projected high that day was plus 8 Celsius but I don't think it got that warm. Just before dark, after eight p.m. at work I was surprised to see about 40 swallows feeding over the north end of the main mill, they only eat flies so there must have been a hatch of flies from water on the flat roof. When I drove over and got under them it was hard to see their colours but I'm sure there were four species - Bank, Cliff, Barn and Rough - Winged Swallows. On Saturday May 10, it was cold in the morning again with ice covering everything outside, but it was going to be 18 C by the afternoon. When I left

the screen house at noon to go have some lunch, the swallows were already having lunch over the sawmill building. There were four species again foraging in close proximity to each other, probably more than 60 of them. In bird books and sources on the internet they describe how the birds

feed on different flies at different heights with some specializing in skipping on the water but last week they were all crowded together getting the little food that was available. Sometimes at work when I see two different species of swallows hunting together they remind me of a video game. The swallows are so fast they could be different shaped darts fired by opposing medieval armies. Other bird news: Great Blue Heron and Wood Ducks in our creek last Wednesday, Mallards a few days before. Red Wing Blackbirds on the cat-tails last weekend and "our " male kingfisher on the wires above the creek last Saturday.

Shake Your Booty Vegas Style Over 700 women with the support of some well dressed men in black flooded the Dryden Arena on the night of May 9, 2014 for Shake Your Booty Vegas Style a fundraising event in support of the Dryden Regional Health Centre. The evening was full of glamour and excitement as numerous acts performed on the catwalk for the animated crowd. Everything from an emotionally charged fashion show for cancer survivors and supporters to a muscle man act put on by the boys at Fitness Edge all culminated into an incredible evening most will not forget.

Opening Day Memories pening day. O It means different things to different people. For many of you, it’s the day that keeps your hope going through the chill of winter. For the trout angler, it’s the weekend when you finally get the stocked lake all to your self. For gardeners, it’s the Saturday when you can finally put in flowers and vegetables with relatively little chance of future snow — most years anyway. For almost everyone, it’s simply a good day. For much of the past decade, I’ve spent the opening day of walleye season with my family. It’s become a tradition for us to go to Lac des Mille Lacs, northwest of Thunder Bay, and catch some walleye for supper. Some years the weather is cold and the sky grey. Other years, it can be as gorgeous as a May days get. Most of the time, the fishing is pretty decent. Back about 12 years ago, when the boys were a bit smaller, we spent most of opening day anchored in Sawmill Bay. The water

was shallow - 5 feet or less - and it was flat calm. Boats were everywhere, as is often the case when spring - like weather is in the forecast. The fishing that opening day was amazing, and it seemed like everywhere we looked nets were being waved around. On that day, I’d set Austin and Devin up with slip floats and they were carefully watching them between mouthfuls of potato chips. Cheryl was quietly jigging over the side with her pink Northland fireball jig and worm combination. I’m not sure she’d want to fish if she couldn’t use this combination! I was pitching jigs and twisters all over the place, hoping to pluck out a nice picture fish. Yet it was the boys that were doing most of the damage, and the floats were going down at a steady rate. At one point, Devin’s yellow float disappeared and he quickly set the hook.

“Big one Dad, “ he said, reeling like a grind box monkey. “Slow down buddy,” I said, quickly checking his drag. ”Let him tire out.” Devin was up at the front of the boat, and soon Austin was there with the net. “I think Dad better net this one, “ said my oldest boy, which soon set off some inter-brother fire works. Since it looked like it was actually going to be a big fish, I managed to get Austin to pass me the net. Sure enough, as Devin worked the walleye in, I could see it was indeed a good one. With a quick scoop we put a fat 6 pounder into the boat. High fives were exchanged and pictures were taken before the big girl was sent back to the inky depths. That was a memorable opening day. While opening day can be a hoot, it also is one of those times when you see some real circus acts. One year, the weather on openers was not so good. In fact it was cold and windy. It had threatened rain all

morning, and I was hoping we’d get our fish quickly so we could go in and warm up. The fish were biting pretty well off a small reef, and I once again anchored the boat. But we were not alone. In those days, I had my name in small letters near the back of my craft. One guy came trolling by about 10 feet away from us. He noticed the name and decided to ask his burning question. “Hey, are you Gord Ellis

or are you just borrowing his boat?” he said, screaming over his ancient 15 horse outboard. “I’m just borrowing his boat for today,” I assured him. The guy nodded, gave me a thumbs-up and carried on. A half an hour later, another boat came by and dropped anchor about 15 feet from us. Everyone in that boat kept their backs turned so as to pretend we

weren’t there. This was fine until the anchor they were using pulled free and the boat began to drift. I had to push their boat with my foot to keep it from scraping us. Never once did they acknowledge we were there. Opening day. You gotta love it. Wherever opening day finds you this year, I hope the water is soft and the fish biting.

We now give a charity receipt for income tax purposes for donations over $20.00.

Local Food Producer Profile

Rainy River Meats on the lost art of local By Samantha Hawkins Emo’s Rainy River Meats is a small shop with a big goal, to provide fresh local foods to their community. Owned by four local families, Ted and Deb Zimmerman (Zimmerman Farm), Marg Irvine, Clayton Teeple and Tracy Haglin and Steve and Pat Loshaw, Rainy River Meats strives to provide a custom cut, wholesale and retail service outlet to support local livestock producers. A large part of what they do is geared to support local farmers, and Deb reminds us that they’re not just a store, they are there to help other local farmers market their products and get local food to consumers. “I’m a s t r o n g believer i n

knowing where things come from. I grew up on a farm, my husband grew up on a farm and we’ve raised our own meat all our lives, I have never bought meat from the store. More and more now we’re having these problems with mass recalls and other health issues related to mass production, you don’t want that, you don’t want that in your food and if you know where your food comes from you’re better off.” The younger generation seems to be a little more aware of what’s going into their mouth, more so than the older generation, according to Deb, but you’re never too old to eat healthy and she encourages everyone to ask questions and find out where your food comes from and what

Rainy River Meats’ Deb and Ted Zimmerman

is in it. Aside from the chicken breasts, which are currently brought in from Manitoba, all of the meat you will find at Rainy River Meats is local, even the walleye are supplied by First Nations partners in the area. The Zimmerman’s frequently encounter misconceptions that grain fed means the cow has been given antibiotics, or is not grass fed. Which is not the case on the Zimmerman Farm, their cows, like many others, live primarily off grass with just a bit of grain, which they grow and process themselves. They are not force fed antibiotics to prevent the inevitable onset of illness that occurs with mass production, but rather roam naturally. This is a standard that Rainy River Meats adheres too. All of the meat p u t

through their shop is antibiotic and hormone free. They have homemade turkey burgers, hand rolled meatballs and handmade sausages, which Deb calls a dying art, but insists is worth all of the hard work. Currently employing two full time and two part time staff with each of the owners also pitching in, Deb is hopeful for the future. “We started out with two employees, I wouldn’t say that we can afford the other two, but we’re getting busier and we have to. It just comes to a point, we didn’t get in this to make money, we got in this to market animals to the whole district and it seems to be really taking off, so I’m happy about that. As long we can get it going and I can get someone younger interested in buying it some day, right on.” Even during this usually quiet time, they are seeing an increase in the animals coming through and since opening Rainy River Meats has seen an increase in

sheep, chicken and turkey producers in the area which is a huge plus for Deb. “We have to start looking after ourselves. Keep it in Canada. We should not be worried about the rest of the world when we are heading for trouble. If everyone started getting two cows a couple of pigs and chickens, they could be self-sufficient.“ That’s why Deb says programs like 4H are so important, especially for the younger generation as it shows the kids the hands on, that its not all glorified, there is hard work to be done, and work it is, but Deb after years on the farm wouldn’t have it any other way. “We’re not in farming for money, there is no money, both Ted and I work off farm full time, but I can walk out and know everyone of my cows by name and get a lick on the face. I don’t cry over the end result. We know how the cycle works, we don’t

butcher the little calves we butcher the big cows that have been finished, that’s what they’re made for. I don’t cry over that, I cry if I loose a baby calf, I cry if I loose my favourite cow on my daughters birthday, but I don’t cry because there’s meat in my freezer.” Thanks to the Cloverbelt Local Food Co-Op Rainy River Meats now has a little step up into the Dryen area, but Deb says they don’t want to step on the toes of other local producers. “If there’s a need for us we’re there, but I’m not going to beat down the doors to try and ruin it for them, but for every animal we put through our shop, that’s one less going off to Cargill or Burns our out of the district so I’m happy with that.” Its slow building a business, its one customer at a time, but Ted says it only takes one good day at the market or a customer saying they’ve never had better meat and it makes it worthwhile.

Alcohol and boating can be deadly Submitted Ahh, boating! Skimming over the water with the wind in your hair. What a great way to spend a lovely, warm afternoon, especially with family and friends. A carefree atmosphere like this is just made to have fun and party. However, this partying should never include drinking alcohol. Mixing alcohol and boating can have tragic consequences. When the Canadian Safe Boating Council and SmartBoater.ca speak to Canadian boaters each year during Safe Boating Awareness Week (May 17 -23, 2014), and throughout the entire boating season about the dangers of alcohol and boating, there is no gentle way to say it. Being impaired while operating a boat can cost you thousands of dollars, or worse, turn a fun day into a deadly outing ! Federal statutes dictate that, whether or not your craft is motorized, you can be charged with Impaired Operation of a vessel under the Criminal Code of Canada if your blood alcohol level exceeds the .08 threshold. That means you can be charged even if you are impaired while operating a canoe and a judge can, upon conviction, suspend your boating privileges, but it can get worse. Some provinces have enacted additional legislation to curb the practice of drinking and boating. In Ontario for example, Bill 209 amended the Highway Traffic Act to also apply to “anyone operating or having the care or control of a vessel”. As such, anyone found boating with a blood alcohol

level above .05, face an on-the-spot drivers’ license suspension. That’s right! You can lose your automobile driver’s licence and should your blood alcohol concentration exceed .08, upon conviction an additional suspension of up to one year can be applied. If that’s not a sufficient deterrent, add the financial impact of court and legal fees, alternative transportation for the year (i.e. taxi, bus, train, etc.) and potential loss of employment if driving is an essential component of your job. The costs keep mounting even after the reinstatement of your license. You’ll face drastically increased insurance premiums for up to 6 years and the inconvenience and embarrassment related to the installation and use of an ignition interlock system. These costs can easily amount to many thousands of dollars! The decision to drink and boat seems pretty stupid when stacked up against these penalties! But many impaired boaters are not stopped before something even worse happens. The Canadian Safe Boating Council completed a survey that identified in nearly 40 per cent of boating related deaths alcohol was a factor and 23 per cent of the cases involved alcohol above the legal limit. What increased the effects of alcohol in a boat are sunshine and a boat’s natural rocking motion that can turn a simple ride can turn into a dangerous dunking. It only takes a large wake or wave, a quick change in the boat’s direction, or a ‘tippy canoe’ to result in someone falling overboard with tragic consequences.

BELIEVE IT? How do Canadians know if it’s true (or not)? They turn to the trusted source: Newspapers in print, online, tablet and phone. And, research finds that they trust the ads there too – more than those in any other medium. Be where Canadians look.

THE DRYDEN OBSERVER - WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 2014

New date for triathlon By Samantha Hawkins For the first year in the long standing history of the Dryden Triathlon, the race will not be held on Canada Day, but rather on the last Sunday in June (29). Committee Chair Cindy Smith said that after polling last year’s participants and with many contestants coming from out of town, it just worked better to have it on a weekend as opposed to July first this year. “This is the only year the triathlon hasn’t been on Canada Day so it’s a little bit scary, but when you have contestants coming from all over, its nice to have the weekend to make it work.” This year they are also introducing a try-a-tri, a smaller version of a triathlon for youth and those who may be too

intimidated to try the full triathlon. With a full triathlon athletes will do a 750m swim in the river, a 20km bike and 5km run, and the estimated length of the try-a-tri is a 300m swim, 10km bike and 3km run. Kids will still be doing a 100m swim, 5km bike and 1km run, but all participants in this category will now receive participation medals this year. Smith is pleased that the pool supplies all of their lifeguards for the day, and reminds everyone who has time that they are always looking for volunteers for the day of the event. June 27 is the cutoff date to register. For more information on how you can become involved or to register for the June 29 event visit www.drydentriathalon.com.

Track and field squad shaping up for home invitational meet, May 15 Submitted by Mike Wood

Gun club getting fired up for competitive season By Samantha Hawkins Safety first, that is the motto, theme and way of life at the Dryden Rifle and Pistol Club and Certified Range Safety Officer and Instructor Dan Landrie insists that when it comes to firearm safety it is vital to involve the whole family. “The best thing you can do when you get a firearms license and get a gun is to get the whole family there and show them how it works and how to handle it safely.” Its important to take the intrigue and mystique away, as firearm safety is entirely about education, says Landrie. Established around 1947, the gun club usually has anywhere from 100 to

140 members at any given time plus around 50 junior members, and with certified instructors, certified range safety officers, and training courses the club draws people to Dryden from all over the world. Membership in the club allows access to the indoor range located under DHS, which is always supervised by a certified range safety officer. To utilize the outdoor range there is a required safety walkthrough and then members have access to the range from 8 a.m. until dusk, making the gun club one of the few clubs that operates year round. The gun club hosts official Police Pistol Combat matches once per month,

has played host for the past 4-5 years to the Ontario provincial championships and for the second year in a row will host the national championships with competitors coming from as far as Germany, Sweden, and Great Britain. This year the Dryden Rifle and Pistol Club will also host a public site-in day, where members of the public can site their rifles before hunting season with experienced club members on hand to help out. For more information on this or any of the other upcoming events please visit their website www.drydenrifleandpistolclub.com, email drydenrifleandpistolclub@gmail.co m or call 223-2607.

SPRING BONUS

The Dryden Eagles Track and Field team kicked off their 2014 season with great results in back to back events against northern Minnesota’s finest, May 2. The Eagles surprised many at the International Falls Varsity meet with strong showing in the distance, sprint, throwing and jumping events. The Eagles took advantage of a beautiful day and the element of surprise to catch the larger American schools by surprise. By the end of the day, a shortened Eagles squad of 32 athletes captured enough hardware to outpace all but International Falls and their massive 100 person squad. Veteran Kirk Markowski set a hot pace early on taking gold in the 3200m and silver in the 1600m. Rookie Mike Braun, ran like he stole something taking down all high school athletes save one with an astonishing 2:22 in the 800m and helping to anchor team mates Kirk Markowski, Jacob Benson and Alex Urquhart with gold and claim school record in the 4x800m. On the girls side, Andie Wood took home gold in the 800m, silver in the 1600m and helped anchor teammates Gabby Gagnon, Elisa Mawby and Amy Wickstrom in their 4x400m gold. Rookie Elisa Mawby shocked the largest field event of the day with a gold medal 24.5m discus throw. A solid and deep showing from the balance of

ELIGIBLE OWNERS RECEIVE

Andie Wood takes the baton from teammate Gabby Gagnon, helping set a 4 x 400m school record — 4:16. Photo submitted the Eagles girls were more than enough to beat out Ely, Big Fork, Fort and Lake of the Wood in the overall team category. Having lost the element of surprise, the Eagles returned to Baudette in the border state on Friday May 2 to take on a few larger teams. Track rookies Amy Wickstrom, and Gabby Gagnon joined veterans Elizabeth Carter and Andie Wood to capture silver in the 4x800m. Rookie Elisa Mawby subbed in for Amy in the 4x400m and helped the team blaze to a gold and set an all-time DHS record in both events. Andie Wood took home individual silver in the 800m, and bronze in the 1600m, Elizabeth Carter the silver in the 400m and Elisa Mawby picked up a bronze in the discus. Ryan Hron surprised the field with a poor start, phenomenal effort and enough

speed to overcome all but one in the field for a silver in the marquis 100m race. Not to be caught twice, Hron blasted out of the blocks in the 200m and left the field with jaws dropped to add a gold for the Eagles. Jacob Benson chose to make his mark in the 800m with a silver medal performance and an all age school record of 2:16.6. This is even more impressive considering it came on the heels of an incredible 2:12 relay leg in the Eagles all time record performance in the 4x800m just an hour before. The Eagles capped the day with 4th place overall in the boys, girls and overall team standings, outpacing Lake of the Woods, Big Fork, and Fort Frances. The Eagles will host 15 teams and more than 300 student athletes from around the region on Thursday May 15 at Dryden High School.

A growing history at Schmidt Greenhouses By Samantha Hawkins Originally encompassing 10 acres between Casmir and Schmidt Crescent, Schmidt Greenhouse has been a pivotal part of Dryden and its community since 1948. Current operator Kurt Schmidt grew up in the greenhouse and has been witness to many changes over the years, including the story of the beginning. “After the war my grandfather and one of his brothers got the greenhouse up and going, when my grandfather died shortly there after, my grandmother and father (Ken) took over running the business.” Originally, a little flower shop adorned the front of the greenhouse, which even-

tually evolved to include a flower shop downtown (where the Flower Forest is today), and in its prime included a gift shop and encompassed three floors (now apartments). Around 1971 Schmidt’s moved their greenhouse to its current location on Highway 17 and began growing mums and cut flowers as well as vegetable garden starters and flowering plants, even running wholesale flowers to Kenora, Thunder Bay, Red Lake and Fort Frances. For about ten years the Schmidts also owned and operated a flower shop in Kenora, with Ken commuting back and forth every day, which he recalls as an “adventure.” The Schmidt’s also dab-

bled in seedling production for reforestation under the name Evergreen Farms, and anyone participating in Conservation Camp through DHS may remember touring their facilities, previously located behind the current greenhouse location. After graduating University with a teaching certificate, Kurt returned home and resumed work in the greenhouse. For nearly 12 years he and his wife Holly, helped his father, mother and grandmother operate the greenhouse until 2004 when a large legal battle with neighbours Hydro One forced Kurt to utilize his diploma and begin work at DHS. “When you’re up against somebody like Hydro you

know you’re going to lose.” Kurt sighs, “Mom and Dad tried really hard, but in the end it just didn’t work out.” The legal battle couldn’t have come at a worse time according to Kurt, with Ken and Liz being so close to retirement they were forced to resume work after losing so much in the lawsuit including the building downtown. “We were in the process of buying out mom and dad so they could retire, but that all went by the wayside as the banks refused to get involved, so Holly and I have taken over and are running the greenhouse, but mom and dad still own the building. They are trying to step back and at least semiretire, they’ve been at it since 1948. We’re getting there, but we’re not nearly the business we were 10 years ago.” Every spring the Schmidts have to raise all of their funds privately but that doesn’t stop the cheery and optimistic family from loving every second of what they do says Kurt. “It’s a great business. It’s not a good way to get rich, but it’s a good quality of life.

I grew up here playing in the dirt.” One only needs to walk around in the greenhouses to see the variety, quality and hard work that goes into not only the plants, but the atmosphere at Schmidt’s and Kurt says that they are not just a retail greenhouse, but first and foremost they are growers. “We used to grow everything from seeds, but now a days because of heating costs we do bring in a lot of seedlings, there are also a lot of patented plants now, so everything has a price, you can’t just buy seed on everything. But we grow pretty much everything from a seed or seedling.” As the main grower in the local area Kurt says they have the wonderful opportunity to be a part of the local growing community. “We try to be informed on what the latest trends are to meet the needs of the local gardeners. There are some fantastic gardeners in town and they are great at giving us updates as to what’s new and keeping us in touch with what people are looking for.”

Holly is happy with the work and says that going forward, like always they are just trying to be consistently better at what they do. Currently they are looking at becoming a producer for the Cloverbelt Local Food Co-Op and getting more involved in selling vegetable plants and cut flowers as historically that was a big part of the business. “Our goal is the quality and the service and the price just is what it is.” Says Holly, “We are a family run business and can’t compete price wise with the bigger companies that supply to millions of stores across the country so we do what we can.” Schmidt’s is always looking for ideas to partner with local groups in the area and are hosting the Horticultural Society monthly meeting May 20 at 7pm, where members will receive a rose begonia free with their $10 annual membership fee. With so much history behind them and three generations in, Kurt says they are hopeful for the future, but whether they get another generation, “You never know.”

Weeding out garden Get kids excited about gardening myths from facts Submitted

Submitted Gardening is an age-old activity that was once a necessity but has transformed into a hobby for thousands of people. While gardening still serves practical purposes, many gardeners still consider it a hobby first and foremost. Time-tested gardening techniques have prevailed, but there remain certain myths about gardening that are best dispelled. The following are some of the more common myths associated with gardening. * MYTH: Compost tea is more effective than traditional compost. All over North America and the United Kingdom, gardeners have jumped on board the compost tea bandwagon. Compost tea is a fertilizer created by steeping compost in water mixed with sugar in brewing kits. The mixture is allowed to sit and aerate to encourage beneficial organism growth before it is sprayed on plants. According to supporters, compost tea suppresses disease and boosts plant yields. However, there is no evidence to suggest that compost tea works any better than adding compost in its normal state to the soil. In fact, leaving buckets of the “tea” around to ferment could actually create a breeding ground for E coli and other bacteria. * MYTH: Plants under stress should be fertilized. This is not the case. Horticulturists advise that fertilizing plants that are not deficient in nutrients can actually add to existing stress levels for plants. Plants are not often stressed by a lack of food, but rather heat, faulty planting or space constraints. A fed plant will use the energy to absorb the nutrients instead of defending against a blight or establishing better root systems. * MYTH: Young trees need stakes. It may be tempting to stake that little sapling to protect it against the weather and strong winds, but doing so may actually work against the foundling tree. Staking trees to inhibit swaying may not stimulate the tree to grow thicker, lower trunks that will help the tree in the long run. The Royal Horticultural Society recommends that saplings be staked for around one year and then have the stakes removed to

encourage the tree to be strong and stable on its own. * MYTH: Water droplets and sunshine lead to burnt leaves. Gardeners have been told to resist watering their plants during the hottest times of the day. Many assume it’s because water droplets lying on leaves will magnify the sun’s rays and burn the leaves. According to Dr. Gabor Horvath at the Eoetvoes University in Budapest, water droplets will rarely damage plants because the drops are too close to the leaves to cause burning before they evaporate. Watering during the hottest points of the day is not advised because water evaporates and gets wasted. * MYTH: Sand added to clay soil makes it looser and better for plants. Clay soil is a deterrent to gardening because it can be so hard to dig and difficult to cultivate, but some feel it’s best to add sand to the clay to make it a better soil mixture. You would need a great deal of sand to do this in the right manner, but many gardeners simply dig a hole, add sand and hope for the best. However, water runoff will pool in the sand and not be absorbed by the clay, potentially causing the plants to drown. * MYTH: Adding compost or potting soil to the planting hole for a tree or shrub is beneficial. Gardeners frequently add compost or potting soil to the hole where the root ball of a tree or shrub will be placed. But this encourages the roots to grow only in this nutrient-rich area, rather than spreading throughout the landscape to form a stronger and more durable root system. If you are going to amend the soil, do so evenly across the landscape. * MYTH: Use gravel or rocks in the bottom of planting containers to improve drainage. Rocks and gravel can actually impede the growth of plants and take away space for roots to grow. The drainage may be affected as well, as water will sit above the gravel or stones and saturate the roots. Stick with plain soil for better drainage results. A variety of gardening myths still prevail. Over time, behaviors can be changed if gardeners learn to separate myths from facts.

Many adults understand the joy of gardening, but gardening can be equally fun for children as well. While some adults may feel that certain children do not have the patience or perseverance to see plants grow from seeds to adulthood, selecting plants that are hardy and sprout quickly may be the key to igniting a love of gardening in children. Choosing seeds that sprout quickly can hold the attention of children who are new to gardening. Many different plants fit this bill. Beans, peas, sunflower seeds, and bell pepper seeds are easy to start and germinate quickly. In addition, many leafy vegetables, such as chard, lettuce, spinach, and mustard, germinate in three to five days. Herbs, such as basil and parsley, also sprout fast. All of these plants are good options for introducing children to gardening, as each provides quick gratification. To further interest children, it is a good idea to plant seeds in a way that allows youngsters to monitor the progress of growth. Use a transparent container, such as rinsed-out glass jars and canisters, to house the plant. Such containers give kids an unobstructed view of the process, during which children can plot the progress of seed germination and easily spot root and stem development. Once the seedlings grow larger, they can be transplanted into different containers. Many seedlings can sprout with water alone. Children can easily grow new plants from clippings of a mature plant left resting in a shallow cup of water, and seeds may not even need soil to germinate. Kids may have luck sprinkling seeds on a dampened, crumpled-up piece of paper towel. Cotton balls also make a good place to nestle seeds. Either material will hold on to water, keeping the seeds moist until they sprout. Afterward, the seedlings can be carefully moved into a soil-andcompost mix. The paper towel and the cotton balls will decompose and add to the organic matter already in the soil. Edible plants often make good choices for children because kids

can reap the rewards of their efforts. Herbs can be sprinkled onto food, or fruits and vegetables can be grown in containers and then served at mealtime. Kids can show pride in their accomplishments, especially if they have tangible results on the dinner plate. Children who want to try something different can explore other types of plants. Aquatic plants, or those found at the pet store to grow in aquariums, can be easy to grow. They need little more than a container, fresh water and sunlight. Cacti and other succulents are also

fun to explore. These plants are quite hardy in that they can stand up to moderate abuse, such as failure to water frequently enough. The unique appearance of cacti make them interesting focal points for an indoor garden. A love of gardening that’s fostered inside can also be explored outdoors. Set aside a plot of dirt where kids can sow their own seeds and tend to their own gardens. This hobby can help children learn patience and hard work while fostering an appreciation of nature.

Lawn fertilizing for beginners Submitted Fertilizing a lawn is a springtime tradition for many homeowners. Winter can take its toll on a lawn, but fertilizer can go a long way toward helping a lawn recover from harsh weather. While lawn-andgarden enthusiasts might know the ins and outs of fertilizing a lawn, novices might need a little help as they look to restore their lawns. * Find out what your lawn needs. Even novice green thumbers likely know that overfertilization can harm a lawn, and that’s a big reason many homeowners approach fertilizing their lawn with some trepidation. A lush lawn adds to the curb appeal of a home, while a lawn that’s patchy or appears to be poorly taken care of can lower property value. Before fertilizing a lawn, homeowners should determine the needs of their lawns. A soil test can determine if the lawn has any nutrient deficiencies. * Don’t overdo it with nitrogen. Fertilizing with too much nitrogen is a common mistake, as too much nitrogen can be harmful, decreasing root growth and increasing a lawn’s susceptibility to disease. A slow-release fertilizer may be an option, as such fertilizers break down nutrients over a longer period of time, which also allows homeowners to extend the intervals between fertilizing sessions. But a lawn can get nitrogen from other sources as well. Such sources include grass clippings or raked leaves left on the lawn after being shredded by a mulching mower. * Consider using granules

instead of spray. Spraying a lawn with fertilizer might seem like the easiest and quickest way to fertilize, but spraying is typically best left to the professionals. That’s because novices often struggle to evenly apply the fertilizer when spraying, and many do not account for the wind when spraying fertilizer. A traditional spreader that fertilizes a lawn with granules makes it easier for nonprofessionals to apply the fertilizer accurately and evenly. Before fertilizing with granules, read the package to determine if you need to water the lawn before application, as some fertilizers are only effective when applied to a lawn after it has been watered. Also, be sure to fill the spreader on asphalt instead of the lawn. Chances are you’re going to spill granules when filling the spreader, and such spills can be harmful to the lawn. * Plan to fertilize several times. Some homeowners only fertilize twice a year, once in the spring and then once again in the fall. But fertilizer should be applied multiple times throughout the year, beginning in the early spring. The first time to fertilize is when the soil temperature reaches roughly 55 F, which is often evident because grass typically starts to grow again when the soil reaches that temperature. Fertilize again roughly a month after fertilizer is first applied, and then do so every six to eight weeks after through October. Professionals often recommend using an organic material during the third fertilizing session.

Stump Grinding and Removal Service

Watering a lawn can do more harm than good if the lawn is not watered correctly. Excessive watering is a waste of water and can cost homeowners money while harming the environment at the same time. Water that is not absorbed by the lawn can result in runoff, which causes nitrogen in the grass, any fertilizer that was applied and chemicals in the water itself to run into gutters and eventually pollute streams, rivers and oceans.

In addition, grass needs oxygen in the soil to grow properly. But when a lawn is overwatered, the oxygen between the soil particles is pushed out, depriving roots of the oxygen they need to grow in strong. This leads to shallow root systems, which make a lawn more susceptible to stress, disease and insect infestation. But overwatering can also be unsightly, as lawns that are overwatered tend to have more weeds, robbing even the greenest of lawns of its aesthetic appeal.

Group planning rock festival for July 2015 By Chris Marchand Perched upon the Canadian Shield, you would think there would be no shortage of rock in Dryden. Yet that perception does exist among local country-weary live music fans. Now, a group has formed around the goal of establishing a rock music festival for the July of 2016. Michelle Levesque led the charge for the festival, dubbed ‘Milltown Meltdown’ and has been joined in her efforts by Ritchie Noel (president), Shelley Swanson as treasurer, Lorie Friesen (secretary) and directors Jeff Levesque, Darryl Norman, Rhonda SharpeKlim and Samantha Scott. Levesque herself is vice-president. “We’ve been having weekly meetings for about a month now,� said Levesque. “We’ve had a ton of people show up to volunteer and get sponsor packages together. We’ve inquired into venues and we’re preparing for indoor, or outdoor. We’re very, very serious about it.� Levesque says the group has inquired into

the booking fee for several Canadian classic rock acts. As the idea only emerged around a month ago, Levesque says the committee agreed that trying to p u l l

off t h e event concert in 2014 would be biting off more than they could chew. “Eventually we’d like to do a two-day thing, but not quite yet,� said Levesque. “We’re shooting for 2015.

We don’t want to rush it and we want to be taken seriously. Waiting until next year gives us enough time for planning, fundraising and sponsors.� As far as incorporating local acts Levesque says they would like to do it through an audition process. She says they hope to stage the festival in conjunction with the local ladies’ fast pitch invitational that draws many out-of-town teams each July. A native of Ignace, Levesque says she misses the magic of John Riccifest, that community’s small rock and roll themed event. “In Dryden, everything is always focused around country,� she said. “I’m from Ignace and the John Ricci festival was huge.

‘Keep it Hanging Around’ Dryden Museum fundraising auction runs May 17-31 By Chris Marchand One can never be sure what rare gems lurk in the sedimentary layers of our culture. In the 600 or more pieces of art gathered by the Dryden And District Museum’s Keep It Hanging Around fundraiser, you gain a tremendous perspective on the scope of people’s interest in visual art and what they value — at least what they value enough to seek a better fate for it than the local landfill. “It’s really showing Dryden,” said show organizer Randi Nielsen. “This is what people have in their homes. Randi Nielsen and Dryden Museum curator Leah Gardner work to complete displays of donated artwork for the upcoming ‘Keep It People have said to me, ‘I’ll donate it Photo by Chris Marchand to the museum, but I don’t want to Hanging Around’ fundraising auction, running May 17-31 at the Dryden and District Museum. put it in a garage sale. So these are still special to people, they’ve had them forever.” From a sketch of NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. to the most delicate and skillfully rendered watercolour scene, value in art can be a tremendously subjective thing. To see such strata carefully-curated and arranged throughout the Dryden District Museum, a process that has taken volunteers many days, is indeed worth a look. Show organizer Randi Nielsen says the event generates conflicting emotions in many donors who in their desire to purge art from their home collections are often charmed by the display and enticed to acquire more.

She attended Albert Street School, and Dryden High School. During the war years, she worked as a teller at the Royal Bank. She married Harold Pateman in 1948, and they settled on a farm in Oxdrift.

For many years, Elsie worked as a book keeper at Oxdrift Tractor Sales, and later as secretary of the Eton Local Roads Board. Throughout her life, Mom was an artist, and has created many lovely oil paintings. She was an avid gardener, and canned hundreds of jars of vegetables on a wood cook stove in the hot months of summer before a deep freeze and electric range made food preservation easier. Mom’s greatest joy was spending time and doing special things with her four grandchildren, reading stories, playing games, drawing pictures, and lots of baking, with cookies and muffins being favourites. Mom was an active member of the First United Church in Oxdrift, and later in Dryden, and a Sunday School teacher. She was also a lifelong

member of the Oxdrift Women’s Institute. During the 1990’s, Mom had two cancer surgeries, and she was a cancer survivor. Mom & Dad moved to Patricia Gardens in 2004, and Mom became a resident of Princess Court in 2008. During the following six years, she took advantage of their many resident activities, bingo, baking, exercise classes, current events, sing-alongs, and Sunday Church Services. Mom lived her final years at Princess Court as she lived her entire life, ‘accepting the things she could not change’, and making the best of it. A memorial service to celebrate the lives of both Elsie & Harold Pateman will be held in the First United Church of Dryden in August. Interment of ashes at the Oxdrift Cemetery will follow the service. Elsie’s family would like to sincerely thank the staff at Princess Court for the outstanding care provided for Mom over the past six years, and for the extra special care during her final days. If friends so desire, donations may be made to ‘Princess Court D.E.C.O. – Resident Activities’, or a charity of your choice online or through the Stevens Funeral Homes, P.O. Box 412, Dryden, ON, P8N 2Z1. Condolences may be posted at www.stevensfuneralhomes.ca

The family of Theresa Ray sadly announces her passing on January 7, 2014, in her 86th year. Theresa passed away peacefully with family by her side. She was born in

G r a v e l b o u r g , Saskatchewan, but lived the majority of her life in Dryden, Ontario, before moving to Parksville on Vancouver Island in 1991. She is predeceased by her brother Ted Daoust and daughter Georgena Fisher, and is survived by her brother Marcel Daoust (Norma), sister Jean Gouin, daughter Gloria Dafoe, sons Robert Ray (Barbara) and Richard Ray, and son-in-law Alec Fisher as well as 11 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren. Theresa loved to be surrounded by her family and friends. She thrived on being outdoors and especially enjoyed being out on

the water boating and fishing. Theresa was an avid crafter sharing her quilting, knitting, needlepoint and crocheting with many. She also had quite a competitive streak and loved floor curling, lawn bowling and playing bridge. Theresa will be greatly missed for her warm hugs and ready smile. There will be no visitation as cremation has taken place. A celebration of Theresa’s life will be held on Sunday May 18th, 2014 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Masonic Hall on van Horne Avenue, Dryden, Ontario for refreshments and reminiscing.

PUBLIC SAFETY NOTICE PRESCRIBED BURN Lac Seul Islands Conservation Reserve May 15, 2014 to November 15, 2014 The Public is urged to stay away from the islands depicted in the adjacent map during this period for their own safety. The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources will be conducting a Prescribed Burn between May 15, 2014 and November 15, 2014 in the Lac Seul Islands Conservation Reserve. Prescribed Burns are set by forest managers to improve the health of an ecosystem. The purpose of this Prescribed Burn is to restore the forest on the Lac Seul Islands Conservation Reserve (C2317) to a conifer dominated habitat. The proposed burn area is three islands south of Holden Island and two islands east of Kejick Bay. The burn is fundamental to restoring and maintaining the ecological integrity of this firedependent area. As a result, the public is urged to stay away from this area during the Prescribed Burn period for their own safety.

– Forever loved and never forgotten Carm & family PETERS – Shaun - In loving memory of our son Shaun Edwin Peters who left us five years ago May 15, 2009. They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal, But neither time nor reason, will change the way we fell, For no one knows the heartache, That lies behind our smiles, No one knows how many times, We have broken down and cried, We want to tell you something So there won’t be any doubt, You’re so wonderful to think of, But so hard to be without. – Miss you lots. With lots of love, Dad and Mom PETERS - Shaun - February 4, 1974 - May 15, 2009. His smiling way and pleasant face are a pleasure to recall; He had a kindly word for each and died beloved by all. Some day we hope to meet him, Some day, we know not when, To clasp his hand in the better land, Never to part again. – Sadly missed, Grandpa & Grandma Thomson & Uncle Bruce PETERS - Brother and Uncle Shaun Peters We miss you Shaun. It is hard to believe it has been 5 years since we heard you laugh. We often feel your presence in our thoughts and hearts. – Love Barry, Karen, Colton and Dylan

BUILD IT YOUR WAY

Ph. 223-8900

Looking for a home that combines the charm of a farmhouse with a modern open layout? This plan offers all this and more, giving you several options to create your perfect floor plan by adding, if you wish, a loft upstairs and powder bath on the first floor. The angled kitchen snack bar is a convenient place to serve up everything from a quick breakfast to hors d’oeuvres during a party. The spacious master bedroom is located on the first floor for privacy and features a walk-in closet, windowed sitting nook, and private bathroom with a skylight (an alternate layout condenses this space to make room for a powder bath). To see more details on this plan, visit www.selectfloorplans.ca/dfl and enter the plan number above. Use advanced search features to browse thousands of other home designs, including bungalow, two-storey, multi-level, and cottage country homes. Order blueprints online or call 1-800-663-6739 for more information on how to order and modify plans.
