TIMS

From Page 1 developer Gabe DeSantis of DeSantis Homes, which is building on the former fairgrounds property. At issue is a proposed drivethru Tim Hortons for the corner of Alyssa Drive (John St.) and Ontario Street in Beamsville. Council has supported the project, but the Ontario Municipal Board disagreed with the plan proposed and rejected it.

Now, the developer is suggesting that a piece of land be donated to the town for a “gateway feature”, a welcome sign. This would allow for the proposed site to then be considered as an interior lot fronting on Alyssa, as opposed to Ontario as it was in the initial plan. While Mayor Bill Hodgson noted that the committee and council need to see a different plan, “that this process cannot be just about tweaking things

and running back to the OMB. ...The Town needs to be concerned with its reputation and preserving its legitimacy,” according to meeting minutes. While several councillors voiced varying opinions and concerns, Coun. Rob Foster said an earlier NewsNow story –– which indicated a possible Tim Hortons for the site was being reconsidered –– was incorrect. The story did not state council was reconsidering the same proposal, rather, that the idea

Store-wide Summer Savings

of such a facility on that site would be considered. “Coun. Foster reminded that council considers policy from the province, region and town as well as public interest and that the recommendation of staff is appreciated in guiding council in this decision making,” according to meeting minutes. In the end, it was approved, “That the Town agrees to investigate the possible dedication of the lands offered for a gateway feature.”

Women, cat plus new boyfriend=domestic terrorism Even a casual reader of a newspaper’s advice column will notice the recurring theme of a household crisis involving the woman, her cat and the new boyfriend. The culprit is never the cat, he got there first and clearly marked the place as his own territory. The woman usually sets the table for trouble when she decides to strike out looking for companionship, intimacy and love. Duh! She already had the cat! As in all conflicts that result in a war the guy becomes the main transgressor. The new boyfriend either doesn’t like cats or is allergic to them and that’s where the battle begins. Solutions offered up by the advice columnist and the readers varies from “definitely get rid of the guy” to shampooing the cat every two weeks to eliminate the dried saliva in the coat which causes the allergy. There is one other option. Years ago I

WILLIAM THOMAS was on the book tour with Guys - Setting Off The Jerk Detector and three incidents on my promotional day in Hamilton, Ontario still stand out in my mind. First, my publicist arranged a book signing in a restaurant in Jackson Square called Walt’s Beanery. They had me sitting at a small table in a corner of the restaurant with an ad sign over my head that read: “Try Our Beans And Let Us Hear From You!” I know what you’re thinking - it must have sounded like a whoopee cushion going off every minute or so. Well no, but I did ask for confirmation from the manager that I was sitting in a non-smok-

ing section. I’ll do a lot of crazy things to promote one of my books but having my hair set on fire by a natural gas explosion is not one of them. The second thing that I remember was autographing two books for a gruff, middle-aged man in a hurry. “Sign for Big Ears and another for Big Ears Two.” As I signed the books I had to ask: “Please sir, tell me ... these are not your children?!?” It turns out he had a couple of rabbits for pets and wanted to preserve the memory of them on the first page of my book. And the third thing I remember was a woman telling me the story of how her house was turned into a war zone when her new boyfriend clashed with her cat. Her name was Christine, a lovely young lady who worked at Coles, my next stop on book tour day. See CAT, Page 5

From Page 4 It seems Christine got caught in a love triangle between Sailor and her brand-new boyfriend Bob. Bob didn’t care for Sailor while Sailor simply hated Bobs guts. Whereas Bob simply ignored Sailor, the cardinal sin of cat care, Sailor took to relieving himself in Bob’s best shoes. That’s when Sailor’s name got changed to Stinker and at work, Bob’s new nickname was “Lysol.” The war went on for a month or so with Bob pushing Sailor off his lap all the while becoming quite ripe in his loafers.

Their cousin Mackenzie Williams, of Beamsville, is too young to visit the babies in the neonatal intensive care unit but she is sending her love another way. She has asked her friends and family for donations and with her mom Jessica’s help they have put together three raffle baskets full of prizes. At her birthday party, Mackenzie even asked people to purchase raffle tickets instead of presents so she can donate all proceeds to McMaster Children’s Hospital in her cousins names. “She has the biggest heart you could imagine,” said Carter and Owen’s mother Jessica. Raffle tickets are $2 each or three for $5 and are available until August 1. Raffle baskets include, a ladies basket with a $50 Lululemon gift card, a Forever 21 gift

has been a challenge. “The first three weeks were the hardest weeks of my entire life,” she explained. “The nurses and doctors warned us that it would be a roller coaster of emotions and they weren’t kidding.

The babies are progressing well and are very strong. “As with everything, as time goes on it gets a little easier,” Jessica said. “Progress is being made and they’re gaining weight and becoming stronger every day. I couldn’t be more proud of them.” They were born weighing just 1.5 lbs. and now they are up to 4 lbs. McMaster Children’s Hospital has been a huge help in their struggle. “The support we have been given from everyone here is overwhelming,” Jessica said. They are expected to be in the hospital until at least Jessica’s due date-July 25. You can help by purchasing raffle tickets before August 1.

Salute to

Grimsby Minor Hockey 2013-2014 Greeting from GMHA’s president Greetings, Thank-you to all of the participants who helped make Grimsby Minor Hockey such a huge success in the 2013-2014 season. A special thank-you to our staff, Erin Tslibanis and Leesa Culp for keeping everything organized. This past season we had one of the highest registration numbers and we anticipate even higher numbers going forward. None of this would have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors and the dedicated hard work of our volunteers. Many of our travel teams went deep into the Ontario Playdowns and several were champions in the Niagara District finals.

Grimsby Minor Hockey Association house league and local league is one of the largest and most successful programs throughout the Niagara District and again many of our teams succeeded and had a lot of fun in the process.

The Borg - Photo by Ron Beaupre Collection

Borg gradually fades away at sea By Skip Gillham For Newsnow The small Panamanian freighter Borg seems to have gradually faded away. It had been a Great Lakes visitor in 1985 and, over a span of 45 years, carried ten different names and at least eight flags of registry for a variety of owners. Borg was built at Bremen, West Germany, in 1966 and first sailed as Silesia in West German and

Shipwreck then Danish registry. The 74 metre long vessel likely spent most of its years in short haul coastal trading around Europe. It had only two holds and a total capacity of 1,320 tons of cargo. The ship came through the Seaway under its third name of Borg in 1985 and never returned. While it carried common national

ship registries such as Panama and Greece, it also flew the flag of Honduras, Iceland and Tonga at various times. In 2007, the ship was observed idle at Rhodes, Greece, as Archangelos and by August 2011 it was seen partially submerged at Partheni, Greece. The vessel was clearly abandoned. It may still be there or was pumped out and scrapped.

Fifteen years of relaxation at Dolmage House says. “I wanted to create a place where people could come to get away.” The spa offers massage, manicures and pedicures as well as facials, hair removal, lash and brow tinting, foot care and airbrush tanning, all delivered in beautiful – and very clean – surroundings. Worron uses only top-quality products, many made in Canada. Efficient and professional service is important in such a business but so is personal attention, says Worron who would never employ the “assembly-line” type of service offered in more commercial establishments. “It is important to understand client service,” she says.

The four young ladies who grew up a century ago in Grimsby’s historic Dolmage House enjoyed the finer things in life. A written account of the time indicates that Carrie, Laura, Fannie and Florence Dolmage wore hats and gloves and were driven about town by a uniformed chauffeur. Dolmage House owner Lynn Worron is behind the successful Iron Gate Retreat that has operated at the lovely Main Street West home for the past decade. This year, Worron celebrates a total of 15 years in business. For Worron it is all about the clients, many of whom have stayed with her throughout the years. “We love our clients,” she

Good strategy

The Grade 9 Beamsville District Secondary School learning strategies class raised over $300 for the West Lincoln Memorial Auxiliary. (L to R) Carol Richmond of the Auxiliary, with students Austin Rudzinski, Tim Laskaris, Roxy Andrews, Ayden Otten, Amber Pregent, Lucy Cook, Natasha Dayboll, Kyle Ramm, Elias Demaria, and Lauren Horachek.

Liberal win a setback locally Ancient news at this point, but last Thursday night’s majority win may have been good for the Liberal Party, but it is not good news for residents of Niagara West and supporters of West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. While Hamilton Health Sciences officials remain optimistic and continue to say and do everything possible to keep the Liberals from looking like double-talking bafflegab experts, the fact remains, the Liberals have done little to nothing to make one believe they may actually come through and rebuild the venerable facility. It really is too bad. Every time one drives by the new behemoth on Fourth Avenue in St. Catharines, built in the wrong place of course, one must wonder why it was built there in the first place. At any rate, the Liberal win is a significant setback. M.W.

Lots on go, but concerted plan needed Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of good things going on in Beamsville, but putting a “Welcome to Beamsville” sign at John Street on Ontario Street would be like asking a visitor already seated on your chesterfield if they would like to come into your home. A little aside, chesterfield is a super old word for couch or sofa...My grandmother used to always call hers, located in the parlour, by that moniker. Love ya, Grandma. Anyways, back to Beamsville, there is a proposal –– dare I say being considered –– by Lincoln Council which would see some land donated to the town at that corner. The thinking there has to do with rearranging the frontage of that land at the intersection so it would be an interior lot and, as such, be subject to different requirements under the Planning Act. The point of these ramblings is not to agree or disagree with this issue, but to take a look at the possibility of a “gateway feature” as it was dubbed. The issue of the downtown core and its ongoing and major transition has been part of regular banter and coffee shop chatter for many months. While all agree, the development happening will have a permanent and positive effect on the town, how the Town uses that interest and growth will make a huge difference in how the personality of the town and its business community is perceived both

MIKE WILLISCRAFT by locals and visitors. The number one thing Beamsville needs in a commercial-core sense is an active and aggressive Business Improvement Area board. There is a BIA of sorts currently, but it has never been active or aggressive. I was part of the BIA back in the late 1990s and after 2000 when Commisso’s was the anchor of the downtown. At that time, the BIA had no budget. They had to go hat-in-hand to the Town every time they wanted to run an event or buy a garbage can. It was silly. Now, there is a very small budget, a few thousand dollars. Barely enough to start a good fire even if you had a can of kerosene. Now, I fully realize this money comes from and would come from the business people who bust their butts every day in the downtown shops. The same people who get asked for prizes and donations from pretty much every community group out there when they are raising their much needed funds. So I don’t mean to belittle that financial contribution.

A high-functioning BIA needs more money and to keep from bankrupting the small businesses, the solution is to expand the BIA territory north on Ontario Street to the QEW and bring more businesses into it. To look at Ontario Street now, anyone would realize Beamsville’s business core starts right at the highway and extends into downtown. Any “gateway feature” welcoming people to town should be right up at the highway, not after they are already in town. ***** Some housekeeping... Readers have until tomorrow (Fri) at 5 p.m. to get their Best In The West award ballots into us. The always popular contest will also see one of our local employees chosen for our outstanding customer service award as well, so nominate someone for that if you have dealt with a person you believe is deserving. ***** Also tomorrow, Friday, is our sales deadline for our inaugural ClubWEST Magazine.
