The Egypt Community Hall will be swiftly rebuilt and, if everything goes as planned, it will rise from the ashes by Christmas or just shortly after, the town said yesterday. The community was devastated July 26 after a lightning bolt hit the roof of the 24-year-old public gathering place during a fierce overnight storm, leaving nothing but charred rubble.
See page 3.

New plans to build the centre will be provided tomorrow to three contractors, who will then submit bids to rebuild the Egypt hall, the town said. Contractors have until Aug. 27 to provide a price to reconstruct the iconic community centre with changes requested to the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning units and for additional storage facilities on the site. By the first week in September, the town is expected to award a contract to the winning builder and

What cost of Olympic dream? BY CHRIS TRABER
Consider the $14.5-billion price tag to stage the 2012 London Olympics and the cost of competing in them is a bargain. So you’d think.
The Olympic dream can be a financial nightmare. Being an Olympian doesn’t come cheap. Aside from the years of training, coaching, travel, lost income and personal sacrifice, there’s also the steady expense of
equipment. Sure, you can go for diving and swimming glory for the price of $365 aqua-dynamic Speedo Fastskin3 trunks and $100 mirrored goggles or you can dole See page 7.

ENTERTAINMENT: Stephen King remake shoots scene in Newmarket
Chloë Grace Moretz plays the main character in the remake of Carrie. A scene of the movie was filmed Tuesday at Main Street on Davis Drive in Newmarket. Here, in one scene, ‘Carrie’ looks at a dress and imagines herself in it.
Storefront transformed for movie By Teresa Latchford
Newmarket is going Hollywood. Residents may have noticed something a little different on Main Street Tuesday morning as the flags lining the street were removed and Running Free’s storefront was transformed for a movie shoot. White Commission Ltd. is filming a remake of the horror classic
Carrie outside at the local business, which has been converted into a dress and fabric shop, where the protagonist, played by Chloe Moretz, will stop to peek in the window, enter the store and exit with a bag of fabric to make her prom dress. More filming will be done along the street as Carrie runs into friends from school. There are no full road closures during the shoot, but will be delays
of five to 10 minutes, which will be handled by York Regional Police, Newmarket economic development officer Chris Kallio said. Filming began at 7 a.m. and wrapped up around 9 p.m. The movie, which is set for release in March, is a remake of the 1970s film telling the tale of a sheltered high school girl who uses her newly developed telekinetic powers to take bloody revenge at classmates who have harassed her.

MPP questions OSPCA task force By Teresa Latchford
Newmarket-Aurora MPP Frank Klees said he is asking questions but getting few answers when it comes to the government’s animal welfare task force. In June 2011, the Community and Correctional Services Ministry announced it would strike an animal welfare task force to fulfil one of the recommendations made in the Meek-LeSage review. The review was prompted by a ringworm outbreak at the regional branch of the Ontario SPCA in Stouffville in May 2010, which resulted in 57 animals being euthanized. The task force’s main goal is to recommend policy changes in the interest of animal welfare. One of the areas it was directed to explore is if
the province should oversee the agency’s operations while separating its shelter services from its investigation and enforcement services. It has been more than a year since the creation of the task force was announced and Mr. Klees said he hasn’t received many answers to questions he has posed to the ministry, including how often the group is meeting, what progress is being made and when a report with recommendations can be expected. “I hope we aren’t paying these people to do nothing,” he said. “I don’t know why the ministry is being secretive. It makes me wonder if they are making any progress or even meeting at all.” Oak Ridges-Markham MPP Helena Jaczek confirmed the task force was cre-
ated immediately after the release of the report last year and insists the group, comprising representatives from provincial ministries, the animal welfare sector, municipalities and veterinarians, meets on a regular basis. She said she could not comment on precisely how often but added it is working on addressing the report’s recommendations. “Sometimes we can be very anxious to get our hands on reports and deal with an issue, but it takes time and there a lot of people involved who are trying to do a thorough job,” she said. A lack of details surrounding the work being done by the task force is nothing but a red flag, Mr. Klees said, adding he intends to ask for more details at the next sitting of the legislature.

construction will begin in the fall with a completion date set for Christmas or New Years as long as no major problems are encountered, according to information provided by the town. “The town is working very hard to ensure that this valuable resource is returned to the community which held it so closely,” Mayor Robert Grossi said yesterday. If everything goes as planned, the public can once again enjoy the facility by late December. Final landscaping work is to be completed by the early spring. The hall was originally built in 1988 and 1989 by 44 families who volunteered their time and efforts on evenings and weekends.

Eat fresh, enjoy new beach theatre, After the Storm By Mary Davidson
ant the opportunity to sample lots of delicious food from local farmers? Corn, fresh fruit, salads, woodstove pizza, crepes, organic hotdogs and hamburgers are only some of the delicious locally produced menu items FARM-Georgina, the food co-ordinator, has in mind for the 2012 SPLASH Floating Water Festival next weekend. “You’d be amazed how lettuce tastes that’s organically grown and fresh from the garden,” said John Auger, who volunteers with FARMGeorgina. “It tastes so fresh and so clean.” The process of organic farming lends itself perfectly to the SPLASH Festival because it excludes the use of herbicides, hormones, pesticides and other additives. This benefits the water table, as fewer chemicals are washed into Lake Simcoe during heavy rainfalls. “The SPLASH Festival is all about raising awareness,” explained John Auger. “FARM-Georgina is trying to do the same thing. We’re offering a healthier alternative, just like SPLASH is trying to provide healthy
alternatives for our water system.” Since 2010, FARM-Georgina (short for Farm and Retail Market), has organized many initiatives to promote local farmers and organic produce. Their main enterprise continues to be a local farmer’s market, which will run every Sunday morning at the Georgina Ice Palace this summer. In June, they are hoping to begin a food network to distribute local organic produce to local restaurants. In addition, FARM-Georgina is circulating a new magazine called Community Market, sharing news on FARM-Georgina’s initiatives, interviews with local farmers, recipes and other issues. •••

rom time to time, every town needs a splash of cold water to wake everybody up. I am hoping Georgina’s wake up will come next weekend with visitors and residents alike talking about what a great place this is. As chairperson of the group working on the idea of a Water Centre for Innovation, Research and Learning on Lake Simcoe that aspires to be internationally recognized, I am often asked “Why here?” One good reason is our urban/rural landscape laced with rivers and forests around a historic lake gives us unique potential to be a living laboratory with all the social, economic and environmental benefits that could bring. But the real reason the water centre idea will succeed here is the ever-increasing number of people who believe Georgina has amazing potential as a hub. The Chippewa Nation of Georgina Island that sees people and nature as one also gives us great perspective for pulling together to create a better tomorrow. You may have been following the weekly stories by Keswick High students in this paper about the water centre and SPLASH Festival. Their work in itself is a demonstration of the emerging talent we have and the shared belief in a better future. The SPLASH Floating Water Festival (Aug. 17 and Aug. 18 in Jackson’s Point) is fast becoming a magnet for people who want to be part of the momentum. Last year on a summer day, SPLASH took its first steps toward the water centre idea. This year, there will be two days of world-class experiences – created by amazing local people. For instance, the Fantastic Forest Experience Friday afternoon in the Metro Road forest. Landscape architect Mark Setter is designing an event that will immerse participants in an world of mythology, music, art, sensory activities, talking trees, mysteries and a new phenom — Japanese forest bathing. You will never think of forests the same
Annabel Slaight way again. Later that evening, creative director Doug Pettigrew will help you experience a dazzling lake sunset as never before. One hundred dancers, acrobats, aerial performers and singers on, in and over the water will tell the story of Lake Simcoe, including a happy tomorrow. You will be talking all year long about the premiere, After the Storm … is when the birds sing. Not to be left in the dust, the Business Improvement Association of Jackson’s Point is stepping up to prove its stuff with a celebration of the past and future of Ontario’s First Cottage Country. Shopkeepers and artisans will take to the streets and food, entertainment and live music will let everyone Jump, Jive and Splash in Jackson’s Point. On Saturday at De La Salle Park, once again the lake will be the shining star. New this year is Blue Green Village that’s being created with innovative people who are the nucleus of an emerging business sector here in Georgina … connecting your health and wellness with the power of water. Innovation takes the stage throughout the whole park as it becomes a place to kick back, love the lake, listen to music, eat local foods from Farm Georgina, swim, play and learn. It should be fun being one with water and also being a part of our future at SPLASH. Hope to see you there. Invite some friends and show off Georgina. Annabel Slaight is chairperson of a Water Centre for Innovation, Research and Learning on Lake Simcoe, author and co-founder of Ladies of the Lake environmental group.

out hundreds of thousands and more to compete in equestrian dressage and jumping. The price of competing for Olympic gold, silver and bronze is high. Although the coveted medals themselves are surprisingly inexpensive, the costs associated with earning the prize can be, well, Olympian. Deep pockets help when it comes to cycling, be it road racing, time trials or on the oval track. Newmarket BikeSports owner Tom Zieniski recently sold a new Specialized brand McLaren road bike for $19,000. And that’s just the start for a serious racer. Electronic geared carbon-framed bikes have a base sticker price in the $10,000 range, he said. Custom wheel sets go as high as $5,500. Helmets are $400 and shoes and pedals are $450 each. Canada’s Ryder Hesjedal competed aboard a Toronto-made Cervélo P5 valued in the $15,000 range. Archery, surprisingly, is a big ticket sport, Aurora archery historian and bow maker Bill Frey said. A competition bow starts at $1,200 and each arrow runs around $10. “Add all kinds of sighting and stabilizing systems and you can make it as expensive as you want,” he said. A Forbes study on the cost of
becoming an Olympian said the annual expense for an archer is $25,000 for equipment, travel to competitions, coaching at $100 per hour and range time at $9 an hour. The survey estimates a table tennis competitor lays out $20,000plus, annually. Top flight players train for a dozen years with coaches and “sparring partners” costing more than $10,000 per year. And a top quality paddle runs $300. Ditto for fencing at $20,000 per year and gymnastics at $15,000. Perhaps the priciest sport is Olympic equestrian dressage and show jumping. The Canadian team, comprising four pairs of horse and rider combinations, is led by 65-year-old Ian Millar, appearing in his 10th Olympic Games. Internet site horsejunkiesunited. com reported the costs begin with good, strong horse stock, anywhere from $60,000 to $500,000. Training, groomers, registration, stabling, veterinarians and a farrier, costs in the range of $5,000 per month. Health certificates, fuel and maintenance for the $100,000 rig one needs to get from competition to competition simply add to the bill, which also includes $500 entry fees per horse. Boots, bridles and saddles, usually custom made, are in the neigh-
bourhood of $5,000. Just to transport a Canadian horse to London for the 2012 games costs $10,000. The traditional dress jacket riders wear are tailored at $850 each. Training to be an Olympian and the income most relinquish are major expenses. Equipment expenses add up, based on your sport. What of the medallions thousands spend billions to acquire? Priceless to the recipients, each medal weighs 14.1 oz. The gold medal is made up of 92.5 per cent silver and 1.34 per cent gold, with the remainder copper. The silver medal is made up of 92.5 per cent silver, with the remainder copper. The bronze medal is made up of 97 per cent copper, 2.5 per cent zinc and 0.5 per cent tin. The value of the materials in the gold medal is about $644, the silver approximately $330, and the bronze a paltry $4.71 on the current metals market.

Moraine group launches website with mapping tools for landowners By L.H. Tiffany Hsieh
The Oak Ridges Moraine Foundation launched a new website with mapping tools for moraine landowners. The Caring for the Moraine program website was created to help bridge the gap left earlier this year when the provincial government rejected the foundation’s pleas for $11 million over four years to keep the doors open. “We spent the last couple of years asking for more funding, but
it wasn’t successful,” foundation program manager Lisa Turnbull said. While the new website isn’t intended to generate more funding, she said the foundation is turning to online media to keep in touch with moraine landowners and offer them technical advice and access to various resources, including financial assistance to undertake projects on their properties that help protect and restore the moraine. The foundation continues to
4You can view the website at caringforthemoraine.ca seek financial resources to restore the Caring for the Moraine program to its original glory, Ms Turnbull said. Until then, the new website will help keep the moraine community connected. The foundation started in 2002 with provincial funding of $15 million.
That money is only good until the end of the year and the foundation needs $1.6 million to get through to 2015, when the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan will be reviewed, Ms Turnbull said. Without new sources of funding, the non-profit organization, mandated to preserve and enhance the Oak Ridges Moraine, will have to fold this year, Ms Turnbull said. Since opening its doors, the foundation has granted $14.1 million to 177 projects and leveraged an additional $35.8 million, mean-
ing the original $15 million grew into $50 million worth of projects, Ms Turnbull said. Between 2005 and 2009, the Caring for the Moraine program planted more than 430,000 trees over an area of 289 hectares, restored 310 hectares of prairie and almost 17,890 metres of streams, created 22.15 hectares of wetland and enhanced an additional two hectares. — with files from David Fleischer

It takes time.” As the first wave of the baby boom generation — born after the Second World War, between 1946 and 1964 — is just reaching retire ment age, the region is going in the right direction, he said.

THERE IS HOPE FOR A BETTER WORLD! The world today is focused on the XXX Summer Olympics, London 2012, where all competitors are striving to obtain a great prize – the coveted gold metal. This great prize, of course, is only available to a very small group of highly trained athletes who follow closely the rules and regulations of their particular event. Fortunately for all of mankind, there is a “race for life” open to everyone and the prize is much greater – even ETERNAL LIFE – in a beautiful, renewed, peaceful and righteous world. We can read about this in God’s Word – the Bible – were God tells us how to run this “race for life” and what we should do to obtain the prize. Titus 2: 11-14 NIV: “..the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say “NO” to ungodliness and worldly passions and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope – the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good”. The apostle Paul, using the analogy of the Greek Olympics in his writings, said at the end of his life: “I have ﬁnished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day – and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” (2 Timothy 4: 7,8) To learn more about the Bible message, visit our exhibit at the:

Retirees seek ‘higher standard’ of living From Page 20
That can be attributed to new developments with state-of-the-art amenities, the report said. Retirement residences need to cater to the baby boomer lifestyle, Mr. Sumnall said. “New retirees are looking for a higher standard of living. Now, you are seeing more pools, theatres and media rooms — and it is not just a projector on a wall with some
chairs. We’re seeing more homes with actual mini theatres.” Other trends are the increasing number of units for couples retiring together and onebedroom units. More than 20 years ago, many retirement homes offered semi-private units shared by strangers, which are on a rapid decline, Mr. Sumnall said. “We’re seeing larger unit spaces and more options,” he said. “More and more, people want their own space.”

PUBLIC HEALTH: Georgina shows signs of ash borer infestation If you have an ash tree in your yard, it probably won’t be there in a decade. The emerald ash borer invasion in all of York’s nine municipalities will likely kill most of the Region’s ash trees within 10 years, forestry program manager James Lane said. York Region confirmed the presence of the invasive insect in all of its local municipalities yesterday. Results of the region’s emerald ash borer trap monitoring survey indicate the municipalities previously unaffected — Newmarket, Georgina, East Gwillimbury, and King — now shows signs of infestation. The infestation rates are lower further
north in the region, but dead and dying ash trees will become more obvious throughout York over the next few years. Difficult to detect, fast moving and able to travel far, the wood-boring beetle native to Asia first appeared in North America in 2002 and in York Region in 2008. The pest primarily kills trees and can’t be eradicated because of its unique biology, Mr. Lane said. The feisty metallic green insect has no natural enemies here, he said. Research is being conducted to determine whether predators can be transferred from Asia. — to read the full story, go to yorkregion.com
