ActiveLife Bright ideas for holiday decorating

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS DOS AND DON’TS  Make sure the lights and wires are in good condition. Don’t use strings with frayed wires or broken bulbs;


Nothing lets you better demonstrate your holiday spirit than decorating your home with lights. It’s a sure way to let Santa Claus know you’re home and ready for his arrival. But hanging lights doesn’t have to trip your breaker or break the bank. Replacing old incandescent bulbs with a string of LED lights can cut electricity consumption by up to 95 per cent. The average household will turn on Christmas lights for two to four hours a day for a month, Newmarket Hydro distribution services director Larry Herod said. “With incandescent bulbs, that can add up to a lot of power,” he said, adding LED lights are safer as well. LED lights generate virtually no heat and remain cool to the touch, making them safer around dry branches and other combustible decorations, such as garland, wreaths and ribbon. LED lights have no filaments to burn through or glass bulbs to shatter. Instead, they are made from solid-state chips that convert electricity to light. They don’t break easily and can last up to 100 times longer than incandescent bulbs, Mr. Herod said. In past years, LED colour selection was limited, but now, you have the option of shopping by colour and shape. There are three shades of white — warm, cool and champagne — that each offer a different look for your home. Warm white lights look similar to the traditional lights of your youth, while cool gives off a blue tinge and the newer champagne lights give off a golden hue, perfect for vintage or Victorian-themed decorating. Other options include sets of multi-coloured lights with the standard red, blue, green, yellow and


 Ensure lights have a CSA-approved tag on the plugs;  Use a timer certified for outdoor use to switch lights on and off and try not to keep electrical connectors on the ground;  When carrying a ladder around to hang your lights, be aware of and avoid overhead power wires;  Make sure the lights you choose are specifically for outdoor use. Do not use indoor-only lights outside.  Make sure you use the right size lights. If lighting a smaller tree, use miniature lights. For larger trees and shrubs, use larger bulbs;  Use more lights if your house sits farther back from the street;  Leave at least 30 centimetres between the edge of your driveway and lights, so when a driver backs out of the drive, he doesn’t take a string of lights with him;


Rich Weiman of Fully Completely Inc. is busy this time of year installing Christmas lights on homes in Newmarket and Aurora. purple or colour wave lights that fade from one colour to another. You can also purchase colour-specific light stings. And you’re not limited to the standard pinecone-shaped bulbs. While C9 bulbs are best-suited for larger evergreen trees and C7 bulbs are perfect for smaller trees and shrubs, LED lights also come in miniature or twinkle-bulb shapes as well as square, round, icicles, stars, snowflakes and ice cubes. When shopping for your lights, don’t forget to think about how you plan to hang them. There are many options that won’t ruin your home’s facade, including specialty hooks and clips that can be used to fasten lights to trees, your roof and

eavestrough. When using nails or tacks, be careful to avoid puncturing the wires. Put nails or tacks in first, then place the wires around them. Once you have your light selection and made sure all light strings are in good condition, it’s time to add a little twinkle to your otherwise white lawn. Start by taking a photograph of your home and creating a plan. This should include lighting directions, where you will start and how you are going to connect the light strings. When you start lighting your yard, be sure to have the male ends of light strings pointing toward your house.

 Use special lighting effects sparingly;  Don’t mix LED and conventional lighting, especially on the same structure. If you choose to do your house in LEDs and wrap the trees or drape bushes with conventional lights, the difference in hue may not be as jarring;

It’s important to create a flow of light that moves the eye from one area to the next. Along with lighting trees, shrubs and evergreens, add a little twinkle around your doorway or by lighting a path to the entrance to create an added feeling of warmth. Evergreens come alive when using crisp white or seasonal green lights, while red lights make evergreen trees look muddy. Bushes or shrubs are perfect for creating a floating light look by throwing the lights in a figure-eight pattern. You can even use your existing outdoor landscape lighting as part of your holiday magic show by covering the top with coloured cellophane.

 Don’t stick with all green or red lights. It can look too commercial;  Don’t use as many lights if decorating with LEDs as you would have with the conventional lights. LED lights are brighter, requiring fewer in number; and  Don’t light everything. For more tips and tricks, visit

Baseball Ontario keeps players from roaming off base


aseball Ontario is hoping to smack a home run by turning up the dial for competitive opportunities. The York Simcoe Baseball Association is planning to be at the forefront for a proposed triple-A network to bring together top midget club teams in Ontario for more frequent games starting with the 2011 season. Unofficially termed the 400 Series, the concept would complement local league play for top midget and minor midget teams in centres across and up and down the Hwy. 401 and 400 corridors. The concept could help increase the competitive level for Baseball Ontario club programs that compete for players with alternate or so-called elite programs and maintain an uneasy relationship with the many for-profit programs playing the field.

‘There is room for an elite league but not 20 or 30 teams’ worth,. There has been a proliferation of so-called elite teams.’ Baseball is playing catch-up. The proposed program is long overdue and comes in response to the perception of a sharp decrease in the calibre of baseball played at midget levels in recent seasons. That dip is related to the impact of players choosing to participate in expensive alternate programs at the under-16 and under-18 age levels. “There’s fewer teams and more disparity in play and that leads to a lower calibre all around and that’s in no one’s interest,” said YSBA president Dirk Drieberg, who is also president of the City of Vaughan Baseball Association. “We think the 400 Series promotes greater competitiveness and allows local associations to offer kids places to play (Baseball Ontario) ball.” Ultimately, Drieberg anticipates the concept will trickle into the bantam levels and maybe even younger age groups, where alternate programs make their initial contacts with potential customers, or players. In some cases, depending on birth dates, alternate programs can utilize players all the way through their first year of junior eligibility. Drieberg also envisions showcase tourna-




John Cudmore Cuddy Shark ments to combat alternate programs that offer players showcase opportunities with NCAA scholarships as the dangling carrot. “It’s in the development (phase) and will continue to develop as time goes on and eventually offer opportunities for showcase events and to expose more kids,” he said. “Maybe it is a chance kids will continue to play in community ball programs and not pay five, 10 or $15,000 to play baseball. Too many parents and kids get enamoured with the term elite baseball.” Considering the few full, or even substantial, baseball scholarships available to Canadian kids, it’s a wonder someone hasn’t started a business to point out the incredibly long odds and collectively save parents thousands of dollars. “There is room for an elite league but not 20 or 30 teams’ worth,” Drieberg said. “There has been a proliferation of so-called elite teams.” Teams from west of Toronto, including the Intercounty Baseball League, Central Ontario Baseball Association and other Baseball Ontario affiliates have expressed interest so far, Newmarket Baseball Association rep vicepresident Ted Williams said. He confirmed two Newmarket midget teams are eager to operate in 2011. “We want to make sure all teams are governed by local associations and eventually create a showcase environment,” said Williams, convenor for the YSBA’s midget age groups. “This will raise the profile for midget ball.” Participating teams will be automatically classified to compete at the triple-A level. Several divisions of the York Simcoe Baseball Association play Toronto teams in

interlocking games. “This is a chance to develop and really should have been in place long ago,” Drieberg said. “This situation is not a lot different from four or five years ago in York Simcoe when we decided to interlock with Toronto and had our teams play against Toronto teams of a like level. It provided competition and variety for the players. “In the long-term vision, it is absolutely the right thing to do. It has flaws, yes. But if

you give it the opportunity to grow and build it, will it get better? Yes.” Vaughan has also expressed interest in the program at the minor midget and midget levels and it is expected at least one team from each of the Eastern Ontario and Toronto baseball associations will participate. “This is in response to how poorly the level fell at the minor midget level,” said Tim Brown, past NBA president and field manager for one of the Newmarket midget teams.

She also teamed with partner Michael Zusev to finish eighth in the pairs competition to qualify for the Victoria competition.

Jets’ Leeper claims silver on Markham short track David Leeper claimed a silver medal in the Bravo division to highlight the performances of Newmarket Jets members at a regional short track speed skating meet last weekend in Markham.

Bronze medals were claimed by Mackenzie Kash (India division) and Tyler Yue (Juliet).

Newmarket fencer melts rivals at Frosty Challenge Cecily McDonnell of the Newmarket Fencing Club struck for gold twice on the weekend at the Frosty Challenge at Royal Military College in Kingston. Competing in two age categories, McDonnell defeated Madison Van Camp of the Cutting Edge Fencing Club 15-11 in cadet (under-17) women’s epee. She later upended Toronto Fencing Club’s Sophia Bacho 15-12 in the under-15 final.

IEM novice side captures hoops gold Newmarket IEM capped a five-game undefeated run with a 39-21 victory over the Mississauga Monarchs in the boys novice triple-A championship game of an IEMhosted youth basketball tournament last weekend.

In 2006 the Regional Municipalities of York and Durham completed a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment that identified the preferred strategy for expanding wastewater treatment capacity at the Duffin Creek Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) from a capacity of 420 million litres per day (MLD) to 630 MLD. Construction of the expansion is underway, with completion scheduled for 2012. 2011.

ANDREWS, Arthur Ernest Joseph June 27, 1908 November 29, 2010

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Arthur Andrews in his 103rd year, on Monday, November 29, 2010, peacefully at home. Arthur traveled from Bridgwater, Somerset, England with his family to Canada in 1912, and settled on Bloomfield Ave. in Toronto. Arthur is predeceased by his loving wife Helen (nee Good) of 71 years, his son Freddy, his sisters Clarisse and Violet and his brothers Edward, Stanley and Raymond. He will be missed by his surviving baby brother Jack, his daughter-in-law Helen and children, Debbie, Denise, Donna, Darlene, Dana and David. Arthur will also be missed by son John and Laura, and children Jeremy, Joshua, Adam, Tara, Jonathan, and his 12 great grandchildren. Arthur had a long and distinguished career of 51 years with the T. Eaton Company, and during WWII he served with the Canadian Reserves. Arthur, along side his brothers, built a lovely cottage at Balm Beach, Georgian Bay which his family and friends enjoyed for over 60 years. Arthur enjoyed hunting and fishing with his brothers and friends, and loved to tend his gardens while enjoying an afternoon rum and Coke. At Arthur's request, a cremation has already taken place. A Celebration of his Life will be held on Sunday, December 12, 2010 at St. John's Presbyterian Church, 2940 10th Side Road (Middletown) with service at 2:00 p.m. and a reception to follow. If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations in Arthur's memory may be made to a Christmas Wish organization in your community.
