between the public school board and the town. Ward 1 Councillor Naomi Davison had hoped Georgina council would provide a ‘hail Mary’ of sorts and provide a pass on the town’s sports field fees to enable tournaments for northern York Region District School Board schools scheduled for October and June to go ahead as planned. The town’s recreation department received a request to waive its $1,100 fee after the governing body of the York Region Elementary School Ath-

The living is good in Georgina, but making a good living needs a bit of work, according to a labour market study. Consultant Dr. Rostam Azarbehi presented a detailed overview of findings of the study to Georgina council Monday that examined both Georgina and

East Gwillimbury’s workforce and identified strengths, opportunities and best practices in similar communities for business and labour attraction. Inadequate public transportation, insufficient information for people looking to invest, lack of agricultural inventory, limited business services support and lack of support for youths

and newcomers were identified as weaknesses that need to be addressed. The study was initiated by Georgina Trades and Training Inc. and funded through the Training, Colleges and Universities Ministry in partnership with the towns, York Region, South Lake CFDC,

Approved Queensville West Pumping Station

Please Join us!




Wastewater from provincially-approved growth to 2031 in Aurora and the remainder of Newmarket would be conveyed to the existing York Durham Sewage System (YDSS) for treatment and discharge to Lake Ontario. This growth would require an additional wastewater sewage pipe. York Region has identified a recommended route for this additional sewer close to the existing YDSS forcemain alignment principally following the Tom Taylor Trail (see map).

Please join us at either one of the two Public Information Forums to hear about and provide your comments on these recommendations. These recommendations will be finalized considering your comments and further developed during the Impact Assessment stage of the UYSS EA.

o rn


As a result of extensive consultation, York Region has identified a recommended site for the proposed Water Reclamation Centre on 2nd Concession one kilometre north of Queensville Sideroad in East Gwillimbury along with trunk sewer pipes to transport sewage to the Water Reclamation Centre for treatment and a pipe to carry treated water to the outfall. This is to accommodate wastewater from provincially-approved growth in East Gwillimbury and a portion of Newmarket (see map). The proposed Water Reclamation Centre will employ environmentally-sustainable wastewater purification and water recycling technologies.

Sibbald’s park decision may freeze out fish tourneys By Heidi Riedner

A move to restrict winter access at Sibbald Point Provincial Park may end up freezing out some of Georgina’s largest fishing tournaments. The park’s management team had been considering either closing off access at the main gates or restricting access to the main parking lot adjacent to Park Road. The latter option would permit access to the beachfront areas by foot, snowmobile or ATV, but the main road through the park would not be plowed. But as of Monday morning, park officials confirmed it will be business as usual at the park this winter, according to the town’s director of recreation and culture Robin McDougall. Charlene Coulter, acting park superintendent, advised the town in July that a preliminary management plan proposed restricting winter access at the park. A preferred option under consideration involved a partnership with the town that would see the municipality taking over plowing of the main entrance and parking area and enforcement and collection of pay and display meters between October and May. A public open house was also held Aug. 14 at the Over park outlining the proposed changes with many local 20 Years residents, town staff and organizers of local ice fishing Experience! tournaments in attendance. Doug Poirier, who runs the annual Perchin for MS fishing tournament, is one event organizer who does not support any changes to winter access at the park. His annual event raised more than $10,000 for Multiple Sclerosis last year and provided an all-access event for participants. “Closing down winter access to the park or limiting access to ATVs, sleds, walking or skiing means no vehicles to the ice edge,” he said. “This concerns me greatly, as our event has been, and currently is staged, to take place again at Sibbalds. Our event is also an all-abilities event meant to encourage everyone — disabled, young, elder, etc., to get out and be active.” He added while the park and its staff have been excellent supporters of his annual fundraiser, he worries any move to close or restrict winter access will kill his event just at the time it is gaining notoriety and generating tangible benefits. “Our tournament is just getting to a point that it is really making a difference and last year our tournament attracted over 400 people,” he said. “Of those, 65 per cent were from outside the local area. Talk about tourism.” But Mr. Poirier feels the issue is bigger than just his tournament alone and worries what will happen next year. — For the full story, go to

LEISURE: This winter OK, park says, but what about next year?

Thursday, September 20, 2012, The Georgina Advocate, Page 4


Board given 1 year ‘heads up’ about fees: town Province to blame for entire mess because it determined to cut funds to school boards, says Councillor Dave Szollosy From Page 1

letic Association refused to pay the roughly $1.60-per-child fee for the three permits for the use of West Park ball diamonds and Civic Centre soccer pitches. The crux of the problem lies with the fact that previous tournaments were free and there is no apparent budget for the sports of baseball and soccer since they fall outside the board sanctioned sports of cross-country, basketball, volleyball, badminton and track & field for which the YRESAA is responsible. The organization’s objective is to encourage inter-school athletics, the advancement of physical education and the maintenance of sportsmanlike conduct in a manner consistent with the aims and objectives of the YRDSB, according to the board’s website. While Councillor Davison had no objection to the town implementing its recreational fee structure in regard to the board of education, she did view this particular situation as a recreation rather than an education issue. “Part of our mandate is to provide recreational opportunities and this event is one that isn’t necessarily education but recreation for children,” said Councillor Davison.

‘I am always in favour of increasing recreational opportunities for children, particularly those children who might not have access to extracurricular activities outside of school. Using the town’s quality outdoor facilities is an obvious choice and waiving the fees is a way to make it happen.’ “I think there are things we should charge for, but I think this is one example that, because it involves children in our area and it does fall under recreation, it has merit. I am always in favour of increasing recreational opportunities for children, particularly those children who might not have access to extra-curricular activities outside of school. Using the town’s quality outdoor facilities is an obvious choice and waiving the fees is a way to make it happen.” This is the first year recreation

fees have been applied to the school board and ample notice was provided of the change, said director of recreation and culture Robin McDougall. “They were given a year’s notice prior to the previous season, so they were given a heads-up that this was coming,” she said, adding the town’s current policy was in part response to the board opting out of a reciprocal use-of-space agreement, which made the town subject to fees for the use of board facilities. For example, the town was charged a fee for use of the gymnasium at Lake Simcoe Public School to hold its public meeting regarding parking issues in Simcoe Landing last year and is charged just under $9 per hour for space at Sutton District High School under board policy.

‘If we are going to pick up the educational costs of the province, as well as things like hospital costs now, I think we are getting into dangerous space.’ Ward 3 Councillor Dave Szollosy, who works as a teacher with a Toronto school board, took the issue one step further, however, blaming the provincial government as the root cause of the problem and stating the town was getting into “dangerous space” over the issue of “downloading”. “The provincial government has determined (to) cut funding to school boards for these kinds of purposes and that’s leaving schools without the funds to provide for recreation, physical education, textbooks, language instruction, etc.,” he said. “If we are going to pick up the educational costs of the province, as well as things like hospital costs now, I think we are getting into dangerous space.” He added part of the town’s business plan regarding the ROC was an anticipated use of town recreation facilities by schools and he did not support waiving fees, especially since the situation was not of the town’s making. “The reciprocal arrangement now is that we do real cost recovery ... I can’t see any reason to shift that, especially when the provincial government created this problem.” Ward 5 Councillor Brad Smockum suggested perhaps local Kinsmen and Lions organizations, as well as other service oriented groups, would be able to help. “If they all chip in a little bit, it could cover the costs,” said Coun-


700 students from north York Region may be denied playing in 3-pitch and soccer tourneys in Georgina over user fee draw with the school board. cillor Smockum. While that could accommodate the scheduled soccer tournaments in June, that solution wouldn’t help the two three-pitch tournaments that are subject to a time crunch since they are scheduled for next month. Using school properties to hold the tournaments is also not an option, since seven soccer pitches and seven ball diamonds are required to accommodate all of the participants. Mayor Rob Grossi had no objection to Councillor Smockum’s suggestion, but agreed with Councillor Szollosy’s position. He added, however, he would have no problem if the board agreed to revisit the original reciprocal use of space agreement between the two public institutions. “No money has to change hands. As long as they give us the ability to have reciprocal use of value for value, then we would be prepared to do the same value for value, as well,” Mayor Grossi said. “We are both public entities. We shouldn’t be doing this. They

shouldn’t be forcing us into this situation. “We’ll let them use our facilities as long as we get value for value at their facilities.”

‘We are both public entities. We shouldn’t be doing this. They shouldn’t be forcing us into this situation. We’ll let them use our facilities as long as we get value for value at their facilities.’ Ms McDougall was directed to send a letter to the board regarding the October tournament and the possibility of amending existing agreements. The opportunity to re-establish co-operative arrangements with local school boards was considered an excellent long-term solution, according to Councillor Davison. “I am happy to have brought the

issue to light and look forward to what town staff are able to arrange with the school board,” she said. Board spokesperson Christina Choo-Hum said the letter addressed to Director of Education Ken Thurston was received Tuesday and the request from the town is “still under consideration”. But “whatever decision is made, it has to be applied equitably across the region”, said Ms Choo-Hum, adding feasibility would ultimately depend on the board being able to offer the same agreement to all municipalities within the region. But that doesn’t address the 700 students, the majority of whom attend the public board’s 11 elementary schools in Georgina, who may not have the opportunity to play because the board cannot or will not pay. Students from Queensville, Sharon, Mount Albert, Park Avenue and Holland Landing elementary schools are also affected. Ms Choo-Hum was unable to respond before press time as to why the original denial was made by the association in the first place.

Sept. 26 last chance to speak out on bridge


here appears to be a clear divide in the community over the pedestrian bridge proposal that would stretch across a portion of the Maskinonge River in Keswick. The Advocate newsroom has received many angry and inquisitive calls, letters to the editor and held conversations with residents about the bridge to be constructed over the river between Riverglen and Riveredge roads in Keswick. From what we can tell, a majority of residents living close to the site think the plan is a terrible idea; ruining the environmentally sensitive area, changing the landscape and making way to noise, trespassers and pollution. Ironically, the concept of a pedestrian bridge was first presented to council last January by Riverglen Drive resident Debbie Gordon, one of the town’s most outspoken and passionate environmental advocates. Council liked the idea and has already spent a fair amount of money to start the process. But some area residents are fuming and seem quite divided about the concept of building a bridge in this community. “It’s insane,” said Don Baker last spring as one of about 50 people who attended the second of three public meetings June 12 at the ROC being hosted by the town to obtain residential input. Mr. Baker characterized the meeting as “hell hath no fury like a whole town scorned”. He and his wife, Mary, who have lived on Riverglen for almost two decades, oppose its construction. They cite vandalism, environmental damage to the river and its wetland species, safety, liability issues, cost and lack of substantial benefits are just some of the reasons the Bakers and others are not in favour of the idea. Yet, others, such as Ms Gordon, insist the pedestrian bridge — linking the south and north of Keswick — is not only an important physical structure but a

social link that will improve the quality of life for people of all ages in Keswick. “Our family has lived on the river for 27 years and it has been a wonderful experience. The Maskinonge River is a publicly navigated waterway and, as such, I feel that every family in Keswick has the right to enjoy it. When you buy property beside any area with public access, whether it is a park, street, river or lake, you have to acknowledge that people will be there,” Ms Gordon said in a letter to the editor several months ago. The bridge would provide a vital link on a pre-existing and underused trail system, encourage kids to walk or bike to school and give people more access to our local natural environment, Ms Gordon insists. The foot bridge would model closely after a walkway bridge at Old Homestead Road (Station Road) in Pefferlaw linking residents across the Pefferlaw River to the library, ball diamonds, ice pad and the Lions Community Hall. The Maskinonge is a major waterway at the midpoint of the community of Keswick in the north-south direction and, with development in the area, including the construction of schools, parks and walkways, it is a perfect addition to the community, the town insists. But whichever side of the bridge you fall, pardon the pun, you should know all the facts firsthand before forming an opinion based just on what you hear from others. Knowledge about any community project is the best way to weigh your own thoughts on the issue. You have one last chance to stand up and voice your opinion on the matter at next Wednesday’s public meeting — the last of three public forums — at Keswick High School starting at 6:30 p.m. Get the information you need, voice your concerns, objections or approval of this pedestrian bridge by being an informed citizen. Hope to see you there.


Great events make Point better place Thank you, Georgina, for making The Jackson’s Point BIA Painted Perch Challenge such a huge success. When the Ladies of the Lake asked us to host an event in the Jackson’s Point parkette as part of the Splash Festival activities, the result was so much fun we’ll do it again next year. Before we knew it, we had sold out of our wooden fish and we had to stretch our volunteers to make more. More than 70 painted perch were judged while the park was alive with music performed by Keith Wallace and the Mystical Unknown, followed by the 10-piece band, Domino. We also had artisans, food vendors, face painting, games and a bouncy castle. I would like to thank volunteers who worked hard; artists who submitted such amazing entries; The Ladies of the Lake for ongoing efforts with the Lake Simcoe watershed; the Town of Georgina

for ensuring the park looked great; sponsors Sutton Home Hardware, Schell Lumber Home Building Centre, Collins Barrow and Connor’s Music, our celebrity artists Robert McAffee, Paul Harpley and Mark Cohon and Mayor Rob Grossi for his auctioneering talents. The Jackson’s Point BIA is excited to be an active participant in the beautification of our village and it is events such as this that make the efforts so fruitful. Please join us on Facebook and Twitter to see what’s happening.

CULTURE: Town gossip event inspired by Stephen Leacock’s Sunshine Sketches

You can help write entire play in 1 day BY HEIDI RIEDNER

Georgina has become gossip town central. If you want to put your two cents in, and foster culture at the same time, Georgina’s Gossip Town/Create a Play in a Day event is your chance. The event celebrates the third annual Canadawide celebration of arts and culture Sept. 29 and 30. Many would think gossip and idle chitchat have nothing to do with fostering culture, but you just have to think of Stephen Leacock to know otherwise. He expertly parlayed that fact into his highly popular and humorous Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town published 100 years ago. With wit and humour, Leacock explored the personalities and peculiarities of a fictional small town and portrayed village life through the rumours, the chitchat and gossip carried

on by its residents. Now it’s your chance. Have you ever written an entire theatrical performance in a single day? Written a song about what is unique about your neighborhood? Worked with friends and neighbors to write a story about the eccentric personalities that make your community interesting? If you answered no to the previous questions, you are not alone, but not to be deterred either, according to organizers of Culture Days Georgina. Inspired by Stephen Leacock’s Sunshine Sketches, they are inviting residents of all ages to join them in developing an entire play in one day. Entitled Gossip Town, the play will celebrate how gossip travels through a small town, often defining who we are, says Phil Rose-Donahoe, manager of cultural services for the Town of Georgina.

Admission to the Georgina Pioneer Village workshops and the Gossip Town performance at Stephen Leacock Theatre is free of charge.

“As part of Culture Days, Gossip Town provides an opportunity for residents to engage with culture in new, more active and expressive ways,” says Mr. Rose-Donahoe. “We also want to uncover the world of artists, artisans and cultural organizations across Georgina,” he added.

ECONOMY: Labour study points out town’s opportunities for job growth

Town needs to be more pro-active, study finds From Page 1

Employment Ontario and Workforce Planning Board. It identified while a third of Georgina residents work in the area, the town needs to be more pro-active and shift its economic development priorities to attract more business opportunities. Based on the results, Mayor Rob Grossi raised the possibility

of redefining the mandate of the town’s economic development arm to focus on a number of aggressive tactics as a means of getting Georgina to that next level of economic viability and offering a greater percentage of residents access to high-value employment within the community. Targeting government ministries such as natural resources, environment and health — especially in partnership with the water

centre and industrial park already on the books — for relocation to the area was one idea raised by the mayor. “To help us get to that next level, realizing that the 404 is becoming part of that link and that we are now part of that bigger picture, should we be expounding on those opportunities to the nth degree instead of sitting back and saying, well, hopefully somebody is going to do something,” Mayor Grossi

said. Dr. Azarbehi agreed. “One of the things to consider this report useful for is becoming more pro-active and seeing what Georgina’s is capable of doing and going after it,” he said, suggesting business cases were highly useful in other municipalities that targeted specific government ministries or institutions to leverage opportunities. While the municipality is at a

disadvantage when it comes to industrial and commercial buildings and lacking in hard and soft infrastructure, there is a ready and skilled workforce, the study found. Manufacturing and health care services topped the list of exported workforce groups, followed by a large number of people in the education services sector living in Georgina. See page 9.

Town needs more corporate partners: study From Page 8

Management level occupations, which require a university degree, accounted for 16 per cent of the population. Mayor Grossi also suggested entering into university discussions and putting Georgina on the map as a potential site for the proposed post-secondary satellite campus in East Gwillimbury. “If there are other ministries involved and they are interested in investing here, whether it’s around the water centre or something like that, is ‘come north young man to the Town of Georgina’ a phrase we should be looking at?” he asked. “Working in partner-

Most agree horse poop a problem Last week, Advocate reader Terri Larocque asked: Is It Just Me? ... Or should horseback riders stoop and scoop?

Editor’s Note: Oops! The Advocate apologizes for illustrating an photograph Sept. 13 to go with this feature that displays an unsafe and unlawful practice. It’s the law that children must wear a certified and approved helmet when riding horses. Anne Speares, below, brought this to our attention. Thanks, Anne. Next time if the Advocate is going to use a picture of a horse with a rider, please be sure that the rider is wearing a certified riding helmet. Seeing a picture of a child on a horse without a helmet takes precedent over stooping and scooping, which is actually the point of the article. I would encourage anyone getting on a horse to wear a helmet at all times. Accidents happen and head injuries are very serious.

Anne Speares

It is not just you, Terri. I also live in Pefferlaw and have often had to walk around big piles of horse droppings. I have had to walk on the road with my baby in her stroller to avoid stepping in it. I also have a dog I walk and take bags to pick up after my dog, because it is disgusting to look on the road and see droppings ... dog or horse. I understand it is difficult to pick it up while on a ride, but riders could at least have some decency, common sense and maybe show a little pride in their community and come back and pick it up so the rest of the community isn’t cleaning it off their shoes.

Heather Hirstwood Pefferlaw

The well water testing events being held by York Region take place this weekend, Sept. 22 and 23, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Sutton Arena, 50 Hawkins Dr., in Georgina and at Lebovic Centre, 30 Burkholder St., in Whitchurch-Stouffville. Residents can pick up sample bottles Saturday and drop off their well water samples Sunday for free testing. York Region Public Health inspectors will also be on site to answer questions and provide information on how to collect water samples. The region submits samples to Public Health Ontario. Tests measure the presence of total coliform and Escherichia coli (E. coli), which are both indicators of bacterial contamination. Residents who receive water from a municipal source do not need to submit samples as municipal water is routinely tested by the Region and your local municipality.

Winterizing your Barbecue Unless you have a natural gas barbecue that is connected directly to your home’s fuel supply, the chilly days of late fall signal the end of outdoor cooking. It is also the time to winterize your barbecue properly in order to prolong its life and look. Of all the different components, the grill is the one that deserves the most attention. Removing all traces of food is essential, especially after you have finished cooking the last meal. This is above all a question of hygiene. Use some steel wool or a metal brush with soapy water for cast iron grills. More expensive barbecues are often equipped with stainless steel grills which should be cleaned with a cloth, mild soap, and hot water. If you don’t want to go to a lot of trouble, do a self-clean by turning the burners on high and letting all food residues burn off. The next item to clean is the rubber pipe that connects the valve of the propane tank to the burners. Brushes that have been designed for this job are available at specialized retailers. On the outside of the barbecue, use linseed oil to get rid of any rust on the cover. When all rust is removed, it can be repainted with a heat resistant paint. This retouching not only improves the look of your barbecue, it will also prevent rust from reappearing over the winter while the barbecue is in storage.

With the rise in popularity of raw materials and the return of the industrial style in home decorating, we are finding whole new ways to use copper in our homes this year. This reddish metal has shed its old-fashioned image to top the very latest in trends. Don’t rush to the attic to dig out your mother’s copper pots and pans, because this season’s copper tones are to be found in designer accessories such as lamps, vases, stools, and mirrors. These objects will blend perfectly with both classic and designer styles. Combined with black or white, the result is a clean and uncluttered look, even if copper inspires memories of medieval times. The effect is a resounding success, even when transposed to the most modern of styles. To create variations on this copper theme, a wide range of colours are now available in alloys. Coppery metals used in interior architecture and decoration are usually copper, brasses, or gilts, all of which have been finished by being polished, brushed, sanded, or bead blasted. Consequently, there is an amazing amount of choice ranging from raw copper to a gleaming “steampunk” brass with smooth, gleaming luxurious reds. Either a retro look or a touch of sophistication can be added, depending on the type of finish used.

Copper brings a warm, seductive light to any home.

A special polishing cream should always be used to keep copper at its gleaming best. These products leave a fine protective layer that slows corrosion and allows for longer intervals between cleanings.

Storage Space in Short Supply? To optimize the storage space you have in your home, start by deciding what you want to store and where. Solutions differ, depending on whether you want to store your clothes on hangers or folded, whether you need a place to put away sports equipment or books, or whatever it may be that gets in the way of your daily movements around the house. Storage options can include drawers, extra shelves, or cupboards, walk-in closets with folding or sliding doors, and either permanent or moveable installations. Cupboards can be integrated into furniture, free-standing stairs can be incorporated under the steps, and stacked cupboards, mini-cupboards, and made-to-measure cupboards can be adapted to just about any configuration. Modular magnetic storage systems allow the placement of shelves to be modified quickly and easily, depending on your needs. Practical and aesthetic, these shelves are held in place by magnets and are interchangeable in many different ways: they can be straight or leaning, jointed or separate, staggered or tight-fitting. Storage units with drawers can be used to separate rooms, create a platform for a bed or sofa, or build a series of steps.

‘Everyone enjoys seeing horses’ From Page 13

– directly in front of the store – where one of their horses left a substantial parting gift on the pavement. I wondered at the time what the appropriate response could be. But I figure anyone that thoughtless has probably never had to even bend over to pick up their own clothes off the floor at home.


••• I am going to have to agree with Terri on this topic. It totally should be up to the rider: it’s disturbing to think our kids ride and walk on sidewalks and shouldn’t have to tolerate that kind of nuisance. It is clear people take no consideration in others sometimes.


••• I am a dog walker in Pefferlaw and have doggy pooh bags in my pockets and coming out my laundry as well. It is not just Terri. I thank you for printing this as I have been very frustrated with the “horse crap” all over the road and the sidewalks in town. I have to cross the road with the dogs to avoid the big piles of crap on the sidewalk. I would be frowned upon if I did not pick up my dog pooh.. as little as it is... but horse crap? Come on. Stop and toss it in the ditch or carry a bigger pooh bag than I. Enough of the crap.


I hope it’s just you, Terri. Having lived in the centre of town of Pefferlaw (15 years) and in the outlying area (12 years), I’ve never had to step around, or over, any horse manure. Nor have I ever heard anyone ever voice concerns over this. I ride my horse through town periodically as it is the only way to access the trail system. My horse has never defecated on the sidewalk. If my horse ever does defecate on the road in town, I do return later, by vehicle, and pick up the manure (unless someone has claimed it for their garden and it has happened.) When riding, we are often visited by children, with their families, as we continue along our travels. Everyone seems to enjoy seeing the horses. I do wonder when, and why, someone would want to relocate to a small, rural, farming community. Horses were a main method of travel in this area up until not so very long ago.


••• Having lived in the farming community of Pefferlaw for 30 years, as well has living rurally all of my life and reading Terri’s beef, I am compelled to respond. I have been riding quite a few years and, in that time, have enjoyed all of the trails in the Pefferlaw area, however, they are inaccessible unless you ride the roads to get to them. I can honestly say I have never ridden See page 20.

Can’t compare dog and horse droppings, says one horseback rider From Page 19

through town and not returned to pick up any droppings left behind by my horse and neither do the people with whom I ride. In some instances, the droppings had already disappeared for someone’s garden. Not too many years ago, these magnificent animals where our

only method of transportation and some people do enjoy seeing and petting our friends on the way by.

My kids have been asking me about this for years and I never quite knew what to tell them.

Being a dog lover as well, it is a shame to compare the droppings of horses with the droppings of dogs. Dogs are meat eaters and the droppings left behind are not of the same composition. It does not help with the natural fertilizer process in any way, shape or form. All of the manure I gather from the stall or paddock is used for fertilizer by myself and shared with

many of my friends. Unfortunately, the dog droppings I gather cannot be used in the same fashion.

Marie Breen

I completely agree that they should be pooper scooping too, just like us dog owners. It’s disgusting and not at all small to avoid for sure.

Chiropractic By: DR. NICK DANIELS Once I start Chiropractic, will I have to go forever?

As with anything in your life, how long you benefit from chiropractic care is up to you. You are always the boss of your own health. Some patients rely on chiropractic care to help manage episodes of back pain and spinal problems. Others find it very helpful to include chiropractic as part of a plan of ongoing wellness care. In the end, it’s always your choice to make. A simple analogy: if you join a gym and workout, lose weight and get in the best shape of your life, is it ok to quit? Yes, but it doesn’t make sense. If you seek help from a nutritionist and learn to eat healthy and you lose weight, gain energy and feel awesome, does that mean you can quit? You can, but it doesn’t make sense. Chiropractic is about promoting health, not treating disease. Anything you do to promote health you should consider incorporating into a healthy lifestyle for always. But how long you choose to benefit is always up to you.

Lawyers By: IAIN DONNELL What are Lawsuits and Mediated Settlements Whenever someone starts a lawsuit against someone else they are doing so because they believe they have been wronged in some fashion or another and they are looking to have their rights enforced. Yet, not every lawsuit makes it to trial. Actually, approximately 97% of all lawsuits settle out of court. What most people don’t understand, and, in fact, find rather confusing and counter-intuitive, is that people who are involved in a lawsuit have an obligation, whether under the Rules of Civil Procedure and/or The Rules of Professional Conduct when represented by counsel, to explore, with all sincerity, a resolution to the matters before the court. This is where Mediation can be useful. Mediation is a third party service made available to parties involved in a dispute to explain their positions and receive an impartial opinion as to what an appropriate resolution of the matter may be. Mediators can be assigned by the court and/or hired privately. They welcome the parties into a neutral environment where it is expected that the parties will openly consider the opposing side’s position. This can be accomplished in a face to face meeting or where the parties are separated into individual rooms, or “caucuses”. Once egos and hurt feelings are set aside and calm, rational thinking returns, most disputes can be settled to everyone’s satisfaction. 905-476-9100 • 183 Simcoe Ave., Keswick

Massage Therapist

Traffic Ticket Advocates



How will I feel after a massage therapy treatment? Everybody reacts differently to massage therapy treatments. The variations can depend upon the type of treatment you are seeking, the depth of techniques, previous underlying conditions and so on. If you have never had a massage before, be sure to clearly communicate with your therapist about their pressure. The phrase “no pain, no gain” does not necessarily apply to your treatment – it must be tolerable. It is normal to feel some tenderness following a treatment for about a day, if this persists or gets worse don’t hesitate to contact your therapist for some advice. Underlying conditions such as high or low blood pressure, fibromyalgia, or sensory conditions are important to include in your health history as this will affect the type of treatment to help avoid negative results. Generally the effects of massage should feel positive and relieving, but don’t be afraid to consult a therapist about any concerns you had during or after a previous treatment.



Driving under Suspension … This one has very serious repercussions. You receive a summons and must attend court to answer to the charge. If you are convicted with drive under suspension you are facing a fine ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 for a first time offence, not to mention the possibility of imprisonment for six months as well as further licence suspension of six months. Keep in mind that when your licence is suspended, you do not have a valid licence and this may have insurance implications should you be involved in an accident.

By: LISA MCBRIDE I lost my job … I’m bitter, I’m mad – but why? Hearing someone say “they lost their job” is a common statement. The unemployed person may find themselves not understanding why they feel the sadness and anger that accompanies it. This is known as the Job Loss Cycle and everyone will go through this. The Job Loss Cycle: • Shock & Disbelief: “All I remember is hearing we were being laid off.” • Anger & Resentment: “How could they do this to me?” • Denial & Bargaining: “I will just wait for them to call me back.” • Self-doubt & Put Downs: Start questioning your abilities and skills. • Withdrawal & Depression: Begin to avoid others. • Acceptance & Affirmation: “I was laid off but I have a lot to contribute elsewhere.” If you have lost your job, contact Job Skills to meet with an Employment Consultant, and set a course of positive action planning.

By: FOTINI PAPAPANAGIOTO My teeth are not hurting and I don’t have any insurance. Do I ______really need a checkup? Absolutely! Preventive maintenance and regular cleanings are a must for everyone. Not having insurance coverage is the major reason why people don’t visit the dentist on a regular basis. However, getting your teeth cleaned twice a year and having small cavities filled is far less expensive than waiting for a toothache. When you visit your dentist regularly, cavities can be prevented and small cavities can be filled before they become too deep, which may require a more extensive treatment, such as root canal or a crown. Waiting for the toothache to come along also runs the risk of getting an infection, which in some cases are life threatening and can lead to hospitalization.

JESUS IS COMING BACK Jesus is coming back to this earth! This is a vital element of the Bible’s message. When he ascended to heaven after his crucifixion, the attendant angels reassured his disciples: “This same Jesus whom you see going into heaven, shall so come in like manner”. Acts 1: 11 Only by returning from heaven can Jesus fulfil his God-given mission, to bring lasting peace and joy to this earth by his righteous, world-wide reign. All who follow him now and obey him will share his glory then and enjoy forever the blessings of his everlasting kingdom. Then, the promises given long ago by God to such men as Abraham (“in thee, and in your seed shall all nations be blessed” Genesis 12: 1-3) and to David (“and the Lord God shall give unto him (Jesus) the throne of his father David” Luke 1:31-33) will be fulfilled, and those faithful characters will rise, together with many others to receive their promised inheritance. There is no reason whatever why everyone should not share in this bright future. God’s invitation is to all. Read and study your Bible and learn more about the message of the Bible – because the Holy Scriptures are able to “make you wise unto salvation through faith, which is in Christ Jesus” 2 Timothy 3:15

DUSTIN SELOSE In loving memory of a beautiful son who passed away September 24, 1994.


peacefully in her 89th year, on August 24, 2012.

Predeceased by her husband Edward (Red), she leaves behind her daughters Vicki (Jim McColl) and Brenda (Charles Nanacsik), grand-children Sarah and Peter Nanacsik, sisters Betty Turner and Cathie Knaggs of England and several nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. Born September 2, 1923 in County Durham, England, Jeanne was number 7 of an eventual 11 children born to Edward and Lavinia Newton. In March of 1947, Jeanne immigrated to Canada and began building a life for herself, which eventually led to a career, family and a busy social life. Jeanne was a creative person, skilled in the arts of sewing, oil painting and crafts. She was also a cleaver wordsmith who would delight family and friends with verses and poems for special occasions. Jeanne was a great believer in not letting life get the better of you; an outlook she passed on to her daughters. Jeanne had a strong work ethic and believed you should do your best at all times. The end of her working life found Jeanne and Red retired to the cottage they built together in Collingwood. Eventually they sold up to be closer to family and friends. These years saw a great deal of travel, both here and abroad, the birth of two grandchildren and a slower pace to life. With Red's passing in 2000, Jeanne began to show signs of forgetfulness that became more and more worrying. Diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia in 2004, she gradually needed more care in her daily life. Jeanne spent the past six years as a resident at Bradford Valley LTC, where her funny faces, queenly waves and sunny smile delighted both residents and staff. We extend our grateful thanks to the friendly, compassionate staff of Bradford Valley LTC, who took excellent care of Jeanne and made her life there a happy one. As per Jeanne's wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at Scott Funeral Home, 289 Main Street North, in Brampton, September 22nd at 1 p.m. followed by a luncheon upstairs. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Alzheimer Society of Toronto (Lewy Body Dementia notated) or charity of your choice would be appreciated.

HOULD, Simone Passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 in her 97 year, while listening to music at Southlake Regional Health Centre with family by her side. Beloved mother of Ray, Vivian (Bob), Richard Jerry (Robin), Laraine (Bob), and Joanne (Terry). Loving grandmother and great-grandmother to many. Simone proudly worked as a Comptometer Operator and Controller at Canadian Printco for over 35 years. Music was always a big part of Simone's life, and at the age of 17 she sang with the Chicago Opera Company. She will be fondly remembered and missed by all who knew and loved her. Special thanks to the nursing staff on the medicine floor at Southlake, and to the staff at Willows Estate who made her final days comfortable. At Simone's request, cremation has taken place and a Funeral Mass and Celebration of Life will be held at Our Lady of Grace Church in Aurora on Saturday, September 22nd at 11:00 a.m. followed by a reception in the church hall. Donations, in memory of Simone, can be given to Our Lady of Grace Church. Arrangements entrusted to Thompson Funeral Home 905-727-5421.

In loving memory of a cherished mom. Many the thoughts I give to you As the long hours go by. Thinking of the things we used to do and say, just you and I.

Beautiful memories are wonderful things, They last til the longest day, They never wear out or get lost, And they can never be given away.

Lovingly remembered by husband Ken, children Lynne & Todd & their families.
