JUST HANGING AROUND
BY HEIDI RIEDNER
No new information is being released regarding vandalism at the Recreation Outdoor Campus July 7, but investigators continue to pour over evidence, York Regional police said yesterday. Two people suspected of vandalizing public property to the tune of more than $100,000 remain at large. Almost two weeks have passed since perpetrators vandalized 14 municipally owned vehicles on the back parking lot of civic centre grounds and trashed the Recreation Outdoor Campus in the early morning hours of July 7.
Early in the investigation, town officials expressed confidence those responsible would be caught referring to surveillance tapes from the chalet’s security camera, which filmed the rampage in progress. Evidence was also left behind at the scene, according to York Regional Police. As of Monday, town CAO Winanne Grant remained committed to that sentiment, expressing her confidence that “the offenders will be See page 8.

Skateboarders should be stoked since they will be the first user group to take advantage of the former Sutton Public School site on Dalton Road. A $245,000 skateboard park was given the go ahead at council Monday night. Council authorized a contract for Toronto company New Line Skateparks to design and build a much-anticipated second park in Georgina on the southernmost portion of the town-owned property. The park will run perpendicular to Dalton, running from Dalton back toward the river bordering Ultramar gas station. The site was chosen, even though the town is yet to decide the fate of the 2.6-hectare site and its 38,700 sq. ft. building, because it best met the criteria of being in the open and highly visible, according to Mayor Rob Grossi. At the mayor’s suggestion, interested youth ARE invited to participate in the design

Resident pushes for investigation into mayor’s conduct BY HEIDI RIEDNER
A sit-down with Mayor Rob Grossi to discuss his conduct during a defamation lawsuit last winter isn’t good enough, says a Keswick resident. Kristina Toomey filed papers last February requesting a neutral thirdparty investigation but is disappointed with how long the process is taking and the town’s choice of mediation instead of an investigation. Five months ago, Ms Toomey had requested Mayor Rob Grossi reimburse taxpayers for all legal expenses due to the lawsuit, provide full public disclosure of all legal accounts and that an investigation be launched to determine if the mayor contravened the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act or town Code of Conduct in regard to a Feb. 10 letter to the editor in the Pefferlaw Post and if the mayor declared a pecuniary interest at all appropriate times. That hasn’t happened, she said. “In essence, this is a practice in futility. How exactly is mediation going to work if I am not a willing participant? As far as I am concerned, this is not a mediation matter. This is an investigation matter.” But according to the Georgina CAO’s office, mediation is the prop-
er procedure to follow. “I am not willing to participate in any mediation process as that will not provide the comfort or the necessary legal opinion that any contravention has occurred,” said Ms Toomey. Ms Toomey willingly waived the first two steps of the town’s process, which involves a meeting between the complainant and the member of council involved, followed by talks with the CAO, an independent third party and/or the mayor or alternate to discuss the complaint and resolve the issue. “I do not believe a meeting between myself, the mayor, the CAO and an independent third party will help resolve any of my concerns that I continue to raise,” said Ms Toomey. To attempt to resolve the issue, CAO Winanne Grant contacted York Community Mediation Services (YCMS) to establish if it would be able to effectively mediate the case. “In order to accommodate Ms Toomey’s refusal to participate in the required first steps, the CAO consulted with the town’s solicitor and sought direction from town council with regards to how to proceed,” said communications coordinator Jordan Redshaw. Ms Grant was directed to pro-
ceed with a third step, which is to have the CAO “investigate the complaint and/or to arrange for a neutral third party to mediate the dispute.” According to the town, the policy requires an attempt at mediation before any further steps may be taken. “This agency offers free mediation services and normally deals with neighbour disputes. This is not a neighbour dispute, it is a potential breach of the town’s policy and the Municipal Act,” she said, adding she provided a list of six potential companies to Ms Grant that specialize in municipal investigations. The town defends its choice of mediator, however, saying YCMS was selected based on recommendations from various other municipalities, said Mr. Redshaw. Furthermore, as the mediation would be funded by taxpayer dollars,

Ron Burrell (pictured) and business partner Ron Ryan took over Cook’s Bee Supplies in Aurora, which has catered to beekeepers since 1923. The store belonged to Aurora resident Jim Cook’s family since it opened almost 90 years ago.
Old-fashioned honey business still buzzing By Chris Traber
Other than personnel, not much has changed at Cook’s Bee Supplies since it was established on Aurora’s Edward Street in 1923. The original building exists, albeit with an addition. Former owner Jim Cook, whose father and grandfather were in the bee business, lives across the street in the house where he was born. The retired senior still drops by the shop to see how the new guys are doing. The public, business end of the shop is small. A wooden counter supports a phone and computer, the only hints of 21st-century technology. A plush toy bee hangs from the ceiling, turning silently in the heat. An antique rope-coiled skep (a beehive-shaped structure once used to house colonies) shares the shelves with bee motif collectables and the tools of the beekeeping trade — apiary starter kits, hats and protective netting, stainless steel collection vats, devices to emit smoke, honeycomb frames, industry magazines and how-to books. Cook’s is now owned by two Rons — Burrell and Ryan. Friends, beekeeping hobbyists and partners in the niche market supply enterprise, the men have long shared a fascination and respect for the indefatigable bee and its unher-
alded place in the food chain. “From the first time you uncover a bee hive, you realize theirs is an entire civilization on its own,” Mr. Burrell said. “They’re a wild swarm and they’ve built the combs perfectly and by themselves.” Their admiration for the creatures is immense. Honey bees are the main insects that make food for humans, they said. Flowering plants rely on pollinators, such as bees, for reproduction. Without bees, there would be dangerously low fruit and vegetable harvests. Bees have been around for some 30 million years, largely unchanged, blindly dedicated to their queen and colony, working themselves to death. East Gwillimbury’s Mr. Burrell and Toronto’s Mr. Ryan, decided to transform their hobby into a profession in 1994. Out of work, Mr. Burrell heeded his accountant’s advice and opted to take over Cook’s with Mr. Ryan. “We kept bees on the farm as a hobby and that kept us in touch with the community,” the droll 70-something, with a shock of luxuriant white hair said. “The business is a good fit.” The enterprise draws customers from all walks of life and corners of the GTA, Mr. Burrell said. It serves hobbyists, sideliners and people who love native bees and the honey, wax and royal jelly they produce. Commercial operations
Old School A periodic series on people who keep old-fashioned craftsmanship alive
with thousands of hives and millions of bees buy their gear in bulk elsewhere. The two Rons sell equipment and can source queen bees, drones, workers and “nucs” — the nucleus of a beehive where cells contain eggs that become the brood. The men dispense advice on how to counter recent problems, including colonies faltering due to pesticides, disease and mites. Of course, the shop also sells honey and coloured wax for candle craft. If you’re keen on keeping a bee colony, you have to ensure bylaws are observed. Most urban areas ban beekeeping due to liability. Once established with a starter package, nucleus and protective gear, you can farm the flying critters for about $500. “The biggest mistake people make is giving all the honey away,” Mr. Burrell said with a chortle. “Then they complain how expensive it is.” Mr. Ryan has been a bee devotee “since before Kennedy was assassinated”, he said, placing his passion to the early 1960s. He admires bees’ work ethic and loyalty and their colonies’ hierarchy.
“I like their intelligence,” he said. “Beekeeping is a tremendously fascinating experience.” While there are different species, there are three kinds of bees in a hive: queen, worker and drone, the men explained. Only the queen lays eggs, approximately 1,500 a day. She communicates with her hive with her own special scent, called pheromones. The worker bees are female and perform all the tasks in the hive, including cleaning, feeding babies and the queen, packing pollen and nectar into cells, building and repairing honeycombs, guarding and fanning to cool the hive. The workers also gather nectar and pollen from flowers. They’re also the only bees with stingers. The stingerless male bees are drones. While it doesn’t seem fair, their sole job is mating. Bee society balances the scales, the men said. In winter, to ensure survival, the workers execute many of the drones. People need to be vigilant when bees are present. If a hive loses a queen, the bees become distressed. If their space is threatened, they will defend. Mr. Burrell knows the ire of an angry swarm. He recalled a warm August day when he went to clean a hive. “All of a sudden, they were over me like Jack the Bear,” he recalled. Stung often, the bee’s venom
BEE FACTS 4Bees have two stomachs — one stomach for eating and the other for storing nectar collected from flowers or water so that they can carry it back to their hive. 4If a worker bee uses her stinger, she will die. 4Bees are classified as insects and they have six legs. 4Bees have five eyes — two compound eyes and three tiny ocelli eyes.
poisoned him. He suffered anaphylaxis, a severe, whole-body allergic reaction. He was rushed to the hospital. “About five kilometers down the road, I saw the light,” he said. “It was close.” He survived and has no ill will against the insects, just a heightened respect for the strength of their numbers. The men toil six days a week and worry about the bee supply industry. “As the older guys retire, fewer young folks are taking it up,” Mr. Burrell said.

process so the skateboard park will offer different challenges than at the Keswick location. Whether it is to ensure appropriate “transitions” are incorporated or enthusiasts have enough opportunity to “ride a rail”, the mayor suggested including youth in the design process be formalized through town meetings. “This is their facility,” he said. “I ain’t going there.” New Line has designed and built nearly 200 concrete skate parks and has committed to a 2012 completion period for the project. A nine-week construction phase is scheduled to start Sept. 10. A decision regarding the former school building, however, was deferred until Aug. 27. Options being presented range from minimal upgrades to the existing facility at a cost of $350,000 to a $3.7-million overhaul to current architectural, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, plumbing, fire protection and electrical systems. They address the fact that, among other things, there is lead and asbestos containing materials throughout the building. The asbestos, primarily in insulation of boiler room piping, however,
is “contained” and “not exposed to the environment”, similar to many other structures in the province, said Mr. Doherty. Inefficient mechanical equipment and numerous replacements would also be required to bring the building up to code. The structure was originally constructed in 1951 and experienced five additions between 1956 and 1992. A complete demolition and construction of a new community centre at an estimated cost of $12.4 million, however, was quickly taken off the table. “It’s not being considered,” said Mayor Grossi. “With all due respect to my friends in Sutton ... Keswick is the major growth area.” He added the intent was to use the building for maybe 10 years at best and further examination should be conducted to fully understand the financial implications of retrofitting or selective demolition, especially since the land, and not the building, was the prime directive behind the town purchasing the site at a cost of $880,706.50 last summer. Referring to the Sutton secondary plan, he added the site was chosen for its potential to reintroduce
Sutton to its heritage. “The purpose of the purchase ... was for the land,” he said. “We paid for the land, we paid very little, if any, for the building,” said the mayor. With Sutton’s population projected to increase to more than 15,000 — 4,225 of them new to Georgina — by 2030, the site is a key location, especially since Dalton is pegged as one of the main targets for higher density development and redevelopment, according to official growth plans and provincial guidelines. The mayor suggested demolishing a portion of the building, severing the property and selling it off to a third party. Discussion continues.

Epic battle outcome will be true test to Liberal priorities
here’s an epic school yard boxing match brewing this summer. The big smack down is set for the first week of September when children are heading back to school. After all, the bigger the audience the better and everyone will be watching. It’s going to be a bloody battle and one that is sure to draw even more attention since both sides have been school yard pals for many years. In one corner is “education Premier” Dalton McGuinty, looking slim and trim with his red gloves tentatively, but steadfastedly, raised in battle position — he’s a relative newbie to bruising this heavyweight opponent — versus the collective favourites; Ontario’s teacher unions (except, of course, the Catholic teachers who recognized how good they have it and, admirably, backed out of the match).
SPITTING AND FROTHING The other unions are spitting and frothing at the mouth, flailing their giant gloves all over the place in their amply generous and luxurious corner of the ring. The teachers, of course, are heavily favoured to win given their easy victories with this government in the past, but the Liberals, this time, aren’t in the mood to be pushed around. The government is pressing on with its proposal to freeze and overhaul the generous teacher salary grid — although a heavy-handed approach didn’t likely help — after assessing the grave reality of Ontario’s ballooning deficit. A wage freeze would bring beleaguered taxpayers longterm savings that could affect the bottom line in 2017 and beyond. And let’s face it. Ontario needs those savings and we need to know our government is fighting for us and not special interest groups that grow stronger and more influential with every passing
contract. A wage freeze is a most necessary change being that Ontario’s 115,000 teachers are heavily contributing to the province’s multi-billion-dollar budget shortfall. But the feisty teachers’ unions, belting back with their don’t-mess-with-us mantra, are refusing to back down and will be punching and hammering hard to keep what they have.
Lot at stake And there’s a lot a stake. Most teachers in Ontario can bank 20 sick days a year, up to 200 days over their career, and get paid a lump sum averaging $46,000 when they retire. Cha-ching. We’re all green with envy. This unrealistic payout has to end when you consider teachers’ sick days amount to a $1.7-billion liability with the province facing a $15-billion deficit, the ministry has said. So, it’s going to come down to how well the Liberals fare in this epic battle to reveal its true priorities and its allegiance to citizens over the self-interests of unions. It’s a pressure-cooker for the minority Grits, but McGuinty must stand his ground and continue on his course to rid the province of excessive and out-of-reach frills we can’t afford; be it teachers or any other public-paid perks. The Liberals have to put the teachers’ unions in their place and force them to see the reality of our situation. Teachers don’t have the public’s sympathy in this matter when they blindly insist huge payouts on retirement are their right and privilege. It’s agreed a vast majority of our teachers are hard working and dedicated, but it doesn’t give them the right to hold society at ransom and use our children as pawns to ensure a padded retirement on the backs of taxpayers. The outcome of this battle will be the true test to the Liberals. Let’s hope they get more than a passing grade.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
ROC vandals likely won’t be punished Re: 2 suspects, 17 and 22, being sought, July 12. It’s so appalling and totally upsetting to think this could happen in our community. Under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, I’m sure there will be little punishment, if any, if these individuals happen to be under 18 and protected by this law. If they happen to be older, I’m pretty sure nothing will happen to them. Ontario’s laws seem to protect the offender and make the victim innocent. Parents today have to start instilling in their children as early as age two to respect other people and their properties. We have children in our neighbourhood who just look at us with blank faces if we ask them to stop doing something they shouldn’t be doing, such as riding bikes over flower beds and shrubs because, apparently, their parents don’t tell them what is right or wrong. I shake my head wondering where the young families
in our own driveway. You are such great role models to the young kids in our neighbourhood. I mean, who wouldn’t want to grow up to be a teenager who has nothing better to do than roam around their own neighbourhood stealing from their neighbours? You guys are stars and a credit to your parents and community. If you’re doing such irresponsible and thoughtless things now, what kind of adult are you going to be? People in this neighbourhood are hard working and pay for the things they have and do not deserve to have their property vandalized or stolen. We should feel safe in our homes and you’re stealing that feeling along with the property J. & D. Hopkins with which you have taken. Keswick Despite what you may think, you are not entitled to whatever you see. Try being a help to your community instead of a blight. Thanks to the thieves who stole my girls’ Hello Kitty magPatricia Robarts net off of our van, while it was Keswick
and their children are going to end up in the future. Who is going to pay for the damage at the civic centre and the ROC? Hmmm, I guess you and me, taxpayers of Georgina. I was speaking to a man the other day about this vandalism. His thoughts were that the parents of the convicted offenders should pay for the damage through their insurance policies and then, when their premiums go up, or possibly, not being able to get insurance again, they might start teaching their children some lessons in respect and finding out where and what their kids are doing at night. I’m hoping beyond hope these darlings are caught and punished but that’s like hoping I’m going to win the lottery.

SPLASH KIDS: Gearing up for Floating Water Festival Aug. 17, 18. Go to yorkregion.com to read the series
Ontario Water Centre idea making SPLASH in Georgina By Jack Richard
With the scorching hot weather and endless sunny skies, it’s clear water is especially welcome this summer. At the SPLASH Floating Water Festival coming up Aug. 17 and 18 at De La Salle in Jackson’s Point, there will be an opportunity to have a closer look at the ideas being floated for a Water Centre for Innovation, Research and Learning on Lake Simcoe. This inspirational idea is the brainchild of Ladies of the Lake Conservation Association, the Alliance for a Better Georgina and a citizen steering committee. It’s described by Ladies of the Lake president Annabel Slaight as “clusters of centres and activities throughout the watershed that
would make the entire Lake Simcoe area a living laboratory.” The water centre would advance knowledge through research, spur innovation in many ways and help people enjoy different kinds of learning – all inspired by water. Ms Slaight, who leads the water centre steering committee, sees real opportunity for this goal to be achieved and, best of all, she says, major social, economic and environmental benefits for Georgina as the place where the idea first took hold. The SPLASH Festival, she says, helps showcase the variety of things the water centre idea could do. For example, the Friday afternoon event takes place in a real forest. The Fantastic Forest Experience will immerse participants in mythology, science, art and music,

facts and feelings, priming them for personal experiences within a forest full of life. And then it will provide the opportunity for people participating to work together on a community legacy project showcasing the forests of the watershed online. While locations, dates and time lines cannot be predicted at this time, planning is under way, and it’s clear the water centre will soon be a reality. Until then, the community can continue to enjoy the lake, hot weather and check out or help at the upcoming SPLASH this summer. — This is one in a series of articles by Keswick High students leading up to the SPLASH Floating Water Festival, Aug.17 and 18, celebrating Lake Simcoe.

Kicking back around a campfire, roasting wieners or marshmallow is off limits effective immediately since a fire ban has been issued for all northern York Region municipalities. A ban on all outdoor and open air burning was instituted Tuesday in Georgina, East Gwillimbury, Whitchurch-Stouffville, King, Newmarket and Aurora. Due to recent hot temperatures, lack of rain and weather forecast, residents are advised that no burning of any kind is permitted, including recreational camp fires. Lighting of bonfires, as well as the use of outdoor burning appliances such as chimineas, are prohibited in all areas. The ban will remain in effect until further notice. “Residents are strongly urged to comply with this ban as it has been issued for their property protection, their safety and the safety of firefighters, who would have to respond to an incident started by the unlawful burning of materials,” said Georgina Fire Chief Bill O’Neill in a press release. In municipalities where burning permits are required, no permits will be issued until further notice.

How does chiropractic work?
Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions ﬂow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain conﬁrm if your body is working right. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine called a “subluxation” can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and compromising the function of affected organs and tissues. Speciﬁc spinal adjustments can help improve mind/body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body.

Do I gain points or lose points?
You gain them. After you are convicted of a traffic offence, demerit points are assessed by the Ministry of Transportation and stay on your driving record for 2 years. G1 and G2 licences are the most sensitive when it comes to gaining demerit points. The number of points you stand to gain, from a particular offence, is not listed anywhere on your ticket. To find out how your offence will affect your driving record just come in for a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION and get my knowledge and experience working for you.

By: IAIN DONNELL Signing a Will and Power of Attorney
What’s it Like to Be Your Own Boss? Everybody should have a will and Power of Attorney. A Will instructs people on how you wish your matters to be handled when you pass. A Power of Attorney, either for Property or Personal Care, serves the same purpose but come into effect when you are still alive but unable to make the decisions for yourself. It is important to have a Will and Power of Attorney prepared and executed by a professional skilled in Wills and Estate Law. A “Do-it-Yourself” Will kit is better than nothing, but also opens the door to the greatest likelihood of the Will being contested. Of course, nothing makes it easier to contest the validity of a Will than presence, or even the spectre, of concern as to the Grantor’s capacity to sign. It is important to have a frank and open conversation with the professional you have selected to provide you with the greatest degree of reliability and certainty of the documents being prepared. Where there is a history of mental illness in your family, it would be advisable, before attending to sign your documents, to go to the doctor and get a letter showing that there are no current concerns in your case. That, combined with the processes used by the professional, affords the greatest amount of protection in the event of a challenge in the future.

I never get cavities so do I really need to visit a dentist?
For a few reasons there are a select group of people who almost never have cavities. A combination of diet, great oral hygiene and a natural protective chemical make-up of the saliva are the cause. A visit to the dental ofﬁce for a regular checkup is useful to identify decay responsible for cavities, but during these visits we also assess the health of gum tissue and do oral cancer screening. Cavity-free teeth in a mouth suffering from gum disease is like a castle built in the sand. The bone and surrounding gum tissue in our mouths act as the foundation for a healthy smile. Regular cleanings and checkups help treat existing gum disease and prevent bone loss from progressing. Many over look the fact that we can lose our teeth while never having a single cavity. This is because as gums and bone recede our teeth become loose from lack of support. Also, dentists are very familiar with identifying normal and healthy features in our mouths. If anything abnormal is developing, usually your dentist is the ﬁrst person to identify the change. Spotting changes early on in their development means early diagnosis and treatment, if necessary. I you have questions about gum disease, cavities or oral cancer screenings contact us at RiverEdge Dental in Keswick at (905) 476-3343 and we’ll be more than happy to book a consultation with you.

THE BIBLE PROMISES A RENEWED EARTH FILLED WITH PEACE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS ”How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken”, Jesus said to his followers after his death and resurrection. As Luke records in chapter 24, the disciples of Jesus had misunderstood the sacriﬁcial events connected with Jesus’ work of redemption. Jesus said to them (verse 44) “This is what I told you while I was still with you (before his cruciﬁxion): Everything must be fulﬁlled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms”. Jesus then “opened their minds so they could understand the scriptures”, which foretold his suffering, his death, his resurrection after three days. Are we so foolish and slow of heart not to likewise believe all that is foretold in the Bible concerning the promises that Jesus will come again as King over the whole renewed earth, bringing peace and righteousness? Consider the following two of many prophecies yet to be fulﬁlled from the Bible: “Of the increase of His (Jesus’) government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice”. Isaiah 9:7 “This same Jesus who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go” Acts 1: 11 To learn more about the message of the Bible, please visit our exhibit at the:
